One week before I started to feel a difference

I have suffered chronic arthritis in my fingers and hands for around 5 years, and in my knee and elbow more recently over the last 3 years.

When you are only half way through your life and you are told the only remedy for the chronic arthritis in your finger joints is to replace them with plastic knuckles; and when you start to see your body change dramatically through the affects of arthritis, the future begins to look pretty bleak and scary.

Being a very active 50+ year old, with a love of my job, our garden, our farm and life in general, it was actually frightening and extremely sad to imagine the picture of my life in the future. One where I would not be able to do the things I love so much without severe pain and tears.  These are the simple things in life, but those that mean so much, like holding hands with my husband the way we still do, hugging our son, writing a letter, holding a cup of coffee, or digging in the garden and picking those roses we love so much to grow.

And then along came Darren.  After my first visit with Darren it took only a week before I started to feel the difference. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.  I call it “The Magic Potion” because there are no other words I can think of that would describe the amazing transformation.

Before my second visit, the pain and swelling had reduced by 80% in my fingers on one hand and around 75% on the other.  Not only was I amazed but so too were my family and colleagues who had seen firsthand the pain I had experienced for so long.  Over the next few months we tried a combination of a few different “potions” to continue to improve my fingers, knee and elbow joints.

Today I am typing this article with no pain or swelling in my fingers; something I had not been able to do for such a long time. The pain in my knee and elbow are what I would call insignificant compared to what they were just a few months ago.

So together with Darren’s “Magic Potion”, here I am on this amazing journey into the future; one that just gets better every day.

It really works

I have been taking my two sons to see Darren for various childhood complaints from croup, pneumonia, asthma to warts for about 10 years. People cannot believe that neither of my boys has ever needed an antibiotic or any other prescription medication thanks to the homeopathic treatment they have received during this time.  It really works.  I would thoroughly recommend him.

Medical family recommends Darren Grech

MEDICAL FAMILY RECOMMEND DARREN GRECH

As a Registered Nurse, and with my father a General Practitioner, my mother also a Registered Nurse, I had thought science and conventional medicine was the only rational way to treat illnesses. That was until my husband got glandular fever that progressed into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I also had signs of early menopause and chronically suffered flu’s with almost every period I had.

Our two children had typical infections that just kept recurring. I was recommended to Darren by a very reputable chiropractor and have not looked back since. My husband was made well enough to return to work, my menopause was reversed and in time I fell pregnant with beautiful twin boys. I have not thankfully had a bout of flu in a few years now. We do not need to use antibiotics.

My children and I enjoy good health. If we do get a sore throat or gastro virus, we treat it naturally with homeopathy. Our twins don’t even use Panadol. Since using homeopathy, we have treated hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue syndrome, influenza, gastroenteritis, sinusitis, gallbladder pain/stones ( the relief was almost instant, it was amazing!), depression, tonsillitis causing sleep apnoea (without surgery), lymphangioma (our eldest son was born with a lump that contained 100mls lymph fluid on his right shoulder. Conventional medicine was initially used , but the “lump” kept returning until we used homeopathy), severe sleep terrors, sleep walking, infant reflux (all four of our children had it, but when our twins had it we were concerned about the side effects of conventional medicine that we had used on our daughter). I was so amazed at how quickly it worked! For the record, I am still happily breastfeeding our twins, even after breast abscesses (that I was supposed to have surgically drained!).

I used homeopathy for pregnancy sickness (you don’t get “morning sickness” with a twin pregnancy! In two days, I was able to eat a variety of healthy fruits, vegetables and meats; previously I could not even tolerate dry biscuits.), I had a trouble free pregnancy until our twins decided to arrive early, at 31 1/2 weeks. Again I used homeopathy and did not suffer the Post Natal Depression that I had with our older children. Our twins thrived, and even the Paediatrician stated, “I don’t know what you are doing, but whatever it is keep it up”. I was using homeopathy.

My husband also suffered terrible obstructive sleep apnoea, where he would suddenly wake up gasping for breath, covered in sweat, heart racing and pounding. This would sometimes happen 2 or 3 times a night. After consulting Darren, my husband’s sleep apnoea just suddenly stopped. It was obvious the medicine was helping!

I believe the best advice I could give to anyone trying homeopathy is to really, really know symptoms, in detail, know your body and any changes so the best remedy can be given. I also find it hard to understand why people give up using it if it doesn’t cure it immediately, but are happy to go the doctor 2, 3 or even 4 times to try a different antibiotic or blood pressure tablet!  We found homeopathy so helpful we recommended to our friends and family. We much prefer using natural medicine based on substances that God has created that allow the body to self – heal with no side-effects,  than man -made synthetic medicines that suppress and weaken our body’s immune system, often causing very unpleasant side effects. We also feel comfortable using homeopathy, the only alternative therapy recognised by The World Health Organisation as valid. The British Royal Family and David Beckham also use homeopathy. Also, compared with other natural therapies, homeopathy is very affordable.

I have found that acute conditions generally respond quickly to homeopathy, often far more quickly than conventional medicines. For more chronic conditions , or ones that have been present for a long period of time, homeopathy will show improvements within a short period of time, but usually requires treatment for a longer period of time. I am glad that I persisted and didn’t give up on using the medicines for chronic conditions, especially the hormonal imbalances and enlarged tonsils(my daughter had).

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Having survived a life-threatening virus I wasn’t feeling ‘right’ –  no energy, was experiencing monthly migraines, couldn’t concentrate, felt very disconnected from the real world – despite the fact that GPs and specialists told me there was no more they could do for me; that was when I went looking for an alternative option. Within two days of treatment from Darren I felt better than I had for months.

For the previous twenty years I had suffered from disturbed sleep/insomnia and also lived with severe hay fever; only a matter of weeks from beginning to take my homeopathic remedy these too became things of the past. All this was nearly a year ago – I still have regular appointments and now, thanks to Darren, I’ve got my life back. I really can’t recommend him highly enough.

This is the best thing I’ve done

I battled with severe thrush for the last 10 years. I tried literally every antibiotic and antifungal product on the market and they only helped a fraction. I saw my Naturopath/Homeopath and he has really helped this chronic problem which was truly depressing.

Since seeing Darren my thrush has returned only once mildly for a few days in the last 12 months. I used to have it constantly! I also no longer get my Migraines which is wonderful. This is the best thing I’ve done.

I became relatively symptom free

In late 2008, after eating or drinking almost anything, I began having dreadful sinus attacks accompanied by extremely itchy eyes and headaches.  I was treated for over 2 months with asian medicine followed by 6 expensive appointments with an allergy clinic.  At the end of all of this, my symptoms seemed as bad as when they first started.

Then a friend recommended Darren Grech who is a Homoeopath in Western Australia.  I was impressed with Darren’s thorough questionnaire and more so with my appointments with him.

Darren told me it may take up to 2 years for my symptoms to resolve however due to his accurate diagnosis and treatment, I became relatively symptom free within several months.  Darren is a very caring holistic practitioner whom I would highly commend.

my panic attacks completely stopped

After taking Duromine, an appetite suppressant drug prescribed by my GP, I began to experience severe & frequent panic attacks literally after the first dose. This was a side effect from the medicine I was told by my GP and he said I must stop it at once.

I did stop it, however, my panic attacks did not stop, they continued for 6 months. This was when I decided to see Darren. He asked me many questions and prescribed me a homeopathic medicine. Within about 2 days after taking it, my panic attacks completely stopped and I have not had one ever since.

He said it was antidote to the effects of the Duromine. I highly recommend Darren as he saved my life!

OCD completely healed

I would like to briefly tell our story about our son who developed OCD not long after whooping cough. Our son found it very awkward talking to his psychologist and after 4 months of therapy we found no improvements. We heard about Darren Grech through a friend’s recommendation. Darren was able to prescribe a medicine which dramatically helped his OCD. We noticed a reduction in his rituals within one week!

Within about 3 weeks, there were major improvements. We continued seeing Darren for another 6 months and we were happy to say his OCD symptoms were absent & there were no relapses. It was like our son had never had it. Everybody, including his teacher were delighted to see him progress so well. It has been intriguing going along for the appointments & it goes without saying that we recommend Darren. Not many people know just how stressful OCD can be! He has helped our entire family!

What a remarkable result I have received

A Testimonial

Change of life. Depression. Anxiety and Panic attacks. Vomiting, Flushes, gall bladder problems, intestinal problems, sleeplessness and severe migraines.

It is approximately 16 months since 1st finding my homeopath, Darren Grech.

I had previously had a very good response to Homeopathy and also a bad response to an inexperienced one too. It took a while to realize Homeopaths are like anyone with a profession, there are good and not so good ones. I was diagnosed as well into peri menopause to the point of my Oestrogen and oestradiol levels unmeasurable about 7-8 years ago. I was bleeding to the point that my iron levels were 75 instead of 110 and losing clots the size of the palm of my hand, hence I ended up With a Full Hysterectomy  last March –o9 , all this before I could find Darren.

I was frightened to just go to any Homeopath and allowed myself to fall into depression keeping in mind all the above diagnosed had been going on for about 22 years with the exception of my migraines which started about 12-13 years ago.

I frequently drove past a Homeopathic business with a huge colourful name and out of sheer desperation trembling, crying, walked in there one day asked about the Homeopaths available and noting my fears to inexperience as I had an extremely in experienced Homeopath the other side of the city 10 years earlier.

The young warm woman who greeted me mentioned, we have the person that fits your description. Knowledgeable, empathetic, listener, understanding and most available- present of himself for the patient and most knowledgeable.

I decided to take the jump, thank heavens I did.

Firstly we addressed the depression and Migraines which we have had a very good response with and I continue on this path when there may be the now occasional threat.. So I have gone from a person who had migraines almost every day and vomiting, depression, Hot flushes anxiety to a fully functional person.

With change of life and depression came sleeplessness, lethargy, anger, despondency and a feeling of defeat.

It has taken a much shorter time to address the gall bladder and intestinal problems which are coming along at a steady pace of success.

You know media say-Dr’s concluded that Homeopathy does not work, let me say, it is not the remedies that don’t work but the ‘Homeopath’ that prescribes. In all fields of trade and profession there really are the enlightened and unenlightened, personally I can only say follow the successes. I truly thank the heavens for guiding me safely into the knowledgeable hands of a wonderful Homeopath Darren.

I find Darren Grech to be all the above mentioned with his name and  honourable intentions, professionalism, discretion and makes himself available where possible at the drop of a hat his experience is second to none, I feel this a path and not just a profession Darren has chosen to undertake. I am able to see it is a chosen path by Darren’s disposition of Humility.

When you consider most of my problems started 22 years ago with the exception of the depression which was subtle at 1st about 19-20 years ago, my change of life started at 33 yrs of age. What a remarkable result I have received with Darren’s guidance.

Bless yourself into the hands of Darren and find out 1st hand, truly.
