I started going to Forever Healthy in Charlottetown, in the Spring of 2005.
During this time I was attending Academy of Learning in Montague going back to College, after some 36 years since I had been in a class room, to take Business Accounting. During the time I was there my health was giving me quite a go and it was hard to keep up with all my studies that were required.
A friend at The Academy of Learning told me I should go to Forever Healthy in Charlottetown as they had helped her greatly with her allergies and she felt certain they could help me as well. It was also interesting that a friend of my daughter’s had also told her about Forever Healthy and she called me to say she was going to give it a try and I said, well I am, as well.
I will have to admit to being very nervous the first time I was there as I had no idea what to expect. I can’t remember the ladies first name that I met with my first appointment, however, the second time I was with Pat MacKinnon and from then on I knew this was who I wanted to see as I felt instantly comfortable with her and I was very interested to see if she could help me with my health problems. All joking aside, I sometimes wonder if Pat had known then what a challenge my health problems have been whether she would have taken me on or not.
Some of you might think, Wow, she is still going for treatments! Yes I am still going for treatments and I thank God every day for bringing Pat into our lives. I will give you a brief rundown on my health. I have Osteo Arthritis, Lung Disease, even though I have never smoked, Costo Chronditis, Headaches, Sjogren’s Syndrome which weakens my Immune System and Allergies and Sinus problems.
The difference Pat and her treatments have made in my life is amazing. Even though I have all of these problems she has helped my body get stronger and has helped me understand how some of my health problems stem right back to my childhood and teenage years. She has taught me it is ok to let my body detox itself. She has taught me how to deal with my illnesses, especially the Sjogren’s, in a way that I don’t beat myself up when I have a flare up. The treatments have allowed me not to be on medication for my Arthritis or Sjogren’s Syndrome and most of the time we can control my Lung Disease as well. The fact of not having to use Antibiotics every time is a real plus for me. I learn something new with every visit as how to help myself get my health back.
I could go on forever on how great the people at Forever Healthy are and they truly do care for everyone who comes through their doors. I hope you are getting my message and that is, no matter what you are going through in your life, give Forever Healthy a chance to really help you deal with whatever it is. I am also proud to say that my Daughter’s two children age 5 and 1½ have never been on Antibiotics and that is thanks to Forever Healthy and all the great things they do for all of us. I also want to add that my Husband goes to Pat as well and he is one of her strongest supporters.
