To fully appreciate and give justice to everything that Scott has done for me I need to go back and describe the person I was when I first him.
I was an absolute shell of the vibrant energetic girl that could run a half marathon and had hobbies almost every night of the week. When I met Scott in February 2015, I could barley run even 10 meters, I no longer had a healthy glow in my face and my eyes were lifeless. I would look in the mirror and not recognise myself.
Three years earlier, in March 2012 I had started to suffer from chronic Idiopathic Urticaria (Hives) and Angioedema. My face would swell up to the point where I was unrecognisable. My eyes, lips, hands, feet, and legs…no part of my body was immune to this.
I spent thousands of dollars on tests, and saw numerous doctors from General Practitioners to allergy specialists and even a Professor in Immunology. They all said the same thing though…”There was no food allergy, there was no known cause and that I would have to just wait it out.” Some doctors even told me it was my imagination and that I was making it up, even though I had dozens of photos.
I had also mentioned to all my doctors that I had previously picked up Helicobacter Pylori in Bali and that I had also become very sick in Cambodia with vomiting and diarrhea. I kept coming back to thinking that there was something bad going on in my gut yet all my doctors ignored this theory.
I couldn’t accept their offhand attitude towards me, so I turned to many natural therapies including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine & Naturopathy. I had no success though as none had seen a case like mine before.
In August 2013, I had to resign from my job as my swelling had become so bad that it was affecting my ability to work. I plodded along for the next one and half years feeling miserable and praying that one-day I would finally find the answer.
Enter Scott in February 2015! I admit I was hesitant about first appointment. After all, by this stage I had spent thousands of dollars on doctors and alternative treatments and I kept receiving empty promises. But as soon as Scott mentioned that he thought I had parasites I knew I had made the right decision. Finally someone else suspected that there was something not right going on in my gut.
As I have Type-1 Diabetes, I always feel slightly hesitant about taking new herbs. So Scott decided that we start off slowly to see how my body reacts. His first concern was always keeping me safe with my diabetes. The first step was to get my colon clean and working properly. Once I felt comfortable with this I moved onto parasite cleansing.
This is where the magic started to happen! People started commenting that I looked healthier and happier. My eyes started to sparkle again and I had more energy.
I would see Scott weekly for amazing massages and he also kept in touch with me throughout the week to check on my wellbeing and blood glucose levels. I was encouraged to contact him at any time- even in the middle of the night if need be – if I felt concerned about anything.
During this time my dad was dying of cancer and Scott understood that external factors would also affect me physically. He always made sure that we spoke about my feelings and I found myself on the phone to him several times in tears. I was amazed that he offered so much support without once asking for money. I’d never experienced anything like it before.
So now, its October 2015 and I’m writing this from Chiang Mai, Thailand, at a Detox Retreat that Scott is running. The experience has been amazing. So far using a variety of herbs and techniques I’ve passed 8 huge Rope worms and lots of toxic biofilm. I’m looking healthier by the day and with each hideous worm that I pass, I know I’m a step closer to a healthy happy life.
I’m so grateful that I came across Scott and his forward-thinking and groundbreaking work.
If I hadn’t met him, I’m sure I’d still be sitting at home, crying every day feeling sorry for myself.
Because of his amazing work, caring nature and his willingness to go beyond the call of duty, I know that I’m becoming the best and healthiest version of myself.
Thanks Scott, from the bottom of my heart!
