“Like many others patients at Covenant Natural Health Care, I was looking for answers and hoping to find relief for the ailment that had plagued me for nearly two decades. I suffered from chronic migraine headaches, which slowly worsened over the years. I’d been evaluated by several physicians, tried several medications, had a CT scan, tried a few naturopathic modalities, and even had an ear piercing that some claim help to calm these headaches. By the time a friend of mine recommended Covenant, I was having up to 25 migraines per month. Prescription migraine medication helped to alleviate the pain, but they often started in the middle of the night, so by the time I was awake and took the medication, they were already full blown and took 1-2 hours for the meds to kick in. The next morning, I would feel extremely tired, foggy, and often disoriented. I was exhausted and beyond frustrated. To add to my health concerns, I was having some mild hair loss, dry/itchy skin, and some sort of frequent skin inflammation on my cheek.
To be honest, I was skeptical that this would help, but felt like I was out of options. Upon coming to Covenant Natural Health Care, I immediately felt at home with the entire staff and was completely enamored at the muscle testing technique. I had always considered myself a healthy eater, but quickly learned the importance of reading the ingredients and finding hidden toxins and sugar in foods that I didn’t realize were there. I noticed as I started changing my dietary habits, taking my supplements, committing to regular exercise, and incorporating prayer/reflection into my daily routine that the headaches became less frequent, I lost some weight, was sleeping great, and finally had energy.
Over the course of a year, I went from almost daily migraines to 5-10 per month, stopped having hair loss, and the facial irritation and itchy skin completely cleared up. I call that a win! I became so passionate about the entire process that I knew I had to be a part of it to help facilitate the healing process in other people’s lives. I truly believe that a balanced, healthy lifestyle is the best medicine out there and am so grateful to have found Covenant to help me on this journey.”
