This is one of the most inspiring stories on holistic healing. Read his full story in
Autoimmune disease is a very complex condition. Conventional medicine has no solution to it except to suppress the condition with medications and the result is compromised on your immune system. Autoimmune conditions include psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, certain forms of eczema, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s disease, certain forms of cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis.
It is one of the most challenging conditions to treat as it involves multiple and complex factors. John’s success is due to his positive attitude, openness to alternative treatment options, willingness to change his lifestyle, spiritual renewal, and lastly compliance to the herbal treatment regime.
A very important point to note is the aspect of fear in healing. I told John to take the pain medications only when it is unbearable and phytotherapy will help him to wean them off. He took the courage to drop them altogether. Often we cling to the medications out of fear and do not trust the body to heal by itself. Your body is God’s creation and it has the vital force to regulate itself eventually.
For 3 years I suffered from extreme joint and musculoskeletal pains that could only be relieved with strong immunosuppressants and painkillers. At its worse, I was bedridden and could not sleep because of the pain. Every step I took was painful. The worse part of it all was having to give up my athletic dreams and pursuits after a decade of training.
My specialists told me there was no cure and that I would be reliant on these medications for life. It was very costly and I worried about the potential long-term side effects.
I did not believe them and started researching and implementing dietary and lifestyle changes to heal myself naturally. I wanted to be pain-free without relying on these medications.
Despite experimenting with numerous diets, supplements, gadgets, meditation, yoga, other lifestyle modifications and even prolonged fasting, have not been able to achieve full remission. My pains would return every time I decided to go off the medications.
I realized I needed professional help and decided to consult an experienced Naturopath and Medical Herbalist, Dr. Sebastian Liew.
In 3 months alone, I have achieved full remission, am pain– and medication-free!
I would like to commend him on his holistic approach to healing which considers all aspects of life from physical to mental and even spiritual. His healing protocol of dietary and lifestyle changes as well as herbal medicine and supplements were gentle on the body and very personalized to my needs. I followed his advice very strictly and am pleased to see such remarkable results in such a short time!
I can now move pain-free and feel much healthier than I have ever been! As a great role model, he has even inspired me to pursue a degree in Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine.
I cannot thank him enough! John Tang, naturopathic student
