A chance meeting with Debbie led me to ask her about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E., a condiiton I have suffered with for over 15 years. In all that time I have never had a health professional in any field who offered any hope whatsoever. Debbie was completely unfazed by the question. What followed was a rational, down to earth, common sense explanation of what had happened to me.
I was so impressed by her breadth of knowledge and compassion I immediately booked an appointment. After filling in a comprehensive health and dietary questionnaire we had a meeting. I am not exaggerating when I say 'meeting her changed my life'.
She recommended some vitamin and mineral supplements and a change to a more nutrient rich diet, by no means extreme, explaining fully how these changes could work. We hadn't realised until then that I had been unconsciously hungry for most of my life! The symptom being carbohydrate cravings, no good when you are a diabetic. In her common sense way she told me that I had been ill for many years and to take my time whilst not expecting too much too soon.
However, I started the supplements and slowly changed my diet. After only 3 days I noticed a dramatic reduction in M.E. symptoms. The extreme fatigue, muscle pain, brain fog and depressive/despairing mental state just stopped! And after 2 weeks a lifetime's attitude to food and eating had completely changed. Paradoxically I now eat probably 30% less volume of food than I did previously and never feel hungry. If asked 'how do you feel now?' I am lost for words. I have a complete absence of symptoms and an end to the continual concern for my physical and mental wellbeing. I AM NORMAL AGAIN! I am absolutely amazed that after all this time it was so simple to improve my health.
Am I glad I met Debbie Grayson? I cannot thank her enough, she gave me back my life. THANK YOU DEBBIE.
Following surgery for breast cancer and all of the horrible treatments that follow Debbie realised that I was struggling with the final months of chemotherapy. As a pharmacist she is ideally placed to understand exactly how the orthodox medicine is working within the body and select a regime to complement and support that treatment.
With Debbie's help, after several weeks of vitamins, minerals and probiotics, these last few months became bearable.
I'm so glad I went to see Debbie! This lady is empathetic and understanding and I felt at home with her straight away. Together we explored my health concerns in a relaxed environment and Debbie was able to describe to me better than I could what I was going through! We went through some checks on blood pressure, she's very thorough! I'm still undergoing hospital tests but it's a great relief to have Debbie there, understanding what is going on, being able to explain and reassure, and she has provided a comprhensive package, specific to me, to help me get back on track. She's there for ongoing support too, and a willing ear if there's anything I don't understand or any concerns I may have. It's given me confidence. This lady knows her stuff, and can apply it.
