My experience with the Nutritional Balancing Program:
I went through menopause approximately 8 years ago. I had read a lot about the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and decided to use them to lessen my menopausal symptoms. I was a "firm believer" in adding them back in but only with the bioidentical type.
I began to get severe headaches that turned in to migraines. In the beginning they were sporadic but pretty severe. Nothing I took would alleviate them that I was aware of so I just had to endure a full day of pain. I told my doctor about them and she told me to just increase my progesterone. That never worked either.
As the years went on, they became worse and worse and started happening 2 days in a row. I finally found something that worked through a friend who had a friend.... I needed triptan drugs because they were vascular headaches. I began to take the triptan for them and it worked like a charm. I didn't like taking the drug because the side effects were very dangerouse, but the migraines were debilitating.
The headaches began too come in 2 weeks increments and by then they would come 2-3 days in a row. The aftermath of the headache would leave me drained and feeling sick all over.
About 3 years ago, I began to get 3-4 migraines per week. Even though I had the medication it didn't always take it completely away and also taking the medication that often was scary; so on the 3rd or 4th day, I would try all types of other things to stop it.....taking a hot bath to pull the blood down to my feet; sucking on ice cubes; sometimes this would work if the migraine wasn't real bad.
Anyway, I came across a woman on the internet who did lab work in order to determine what was going on in the body. She did blood, saliva and hair analysis. This was my initial introduction to hair analysis. However, I didn't end up working with her for too long because she was very expensive.
My hair analysis revealed some interesting things I would have never been aware of with blood work. I was loaded with mercury and aluminum. I also had what they call a Calcium Shell. My sodiumg and potassium, especially potassium was severely low, my thyroid and adrenals where extremely low, expecially the adrenals. My zinc was also low and I also had indicators of copper toxicity. I was in extreme slow oxidation (how my body was processing nutrients) and I was in the resistance stage of stress.
I got online and sought out someone who could help me with this hair analysis. And that's when I found Dr. Wilson. He seemed very knowledgeable in the hair analysis and offered a program called Nutritional Balancing Science. Not only is he an expert in the interpretation of the hair analysis, but his program did not cost an arm and a leg. It was very reasonable. So I started the program. And then I got my certificate to offer Nutritional Balancing and Hair Analysis to my friends and clients. I collaberate with Dr. Wilson as he oversees everyones program.
It takes 1-3 years to rebalance body chemistry with Nutritional Balancing. I have been on the program now for about 1 1/2 years. Nothing much changed for me the first 6 months, but things are starting changing after that. I have gotten out almost all of the mercury, dropped my calcium shell from 350 to 90 (normal range for calcium is 40), made improvements with my thyroid and my oxidation level has improved. Also, I had been previously having a lot of digestion problems, and the GB3 has transformed my stomach. The migraines have lessened and I know once I get my adrenals are healthy again, the migraines will stop. There is much more but too much to write about here..
If you are not well and want a natural way to really recovery your health, I urge you to look in to doing a hair analysis. If I hadn't done it I don't think I would have been able to continue working. I was on a very dark path with no knowledge of what was really going on. My bloodwork never really revealed much except my thyroid was a little low and so were my hormones.
Note for Menopausal women: Have you ever noticed how some women (very few) breeze through menopause and others don't. Well if your adrenals aren't working well, you won't breeze through because when your ovaries stop performing like they used to, the adrenals take over and help produce what you need. If your adrenals aren't working well, usually from chronic stress and lack of rest, you probably won't breeze through.
So, Get a Hair Analysis. Balance your body chemistry. Detox any metals. Rest more. Drink the right amount of Spring Water. Meditate. Get Massages.
What you eat. What you drink. What you think. It all matters.
