Lee Holmes healing story (continues).
She made a conscious decision to look more deeply at health and disease, to discover where it came from and heal herself naturally. Thus began the process of taking her medical destiny into her own hands.

Lee still gets flare ups on rainy days, but has learnt how to cope with it. She no longer needs prescription drugs and is 90% recovered.
Six years ago she was diagnosed with a non specific ( that is, affecting several organs ) autoimmune disease and fibromyalgia. She spent three months lying in a hospital bed, coming to terms with the illness and the crippling arthritis. She lost more than 15kg; hives and bruises covered her from head to toe; she suffered from brain fog, hair loss and extreme fatigue. There were many days she couldn’t get out of bed.
During her time in hospital she was given a concoction of drugs from immunosuppressant and antibiotics to steroids, anti cancer drugs and anti inflammatories. To get the inflammation in her body under control. She got nauseated, tired, blurry and foggy. When she woke up from intermittent and interrupted sleep, she felt like a forty year old in an eighty year old body.
She was bent double and unable to get out of bed, her beautiful thick hair was falling out in clumps on her pillow. As she was lying there, she wondered if it could be helpful to heal her gut and give her system a chance to recover, and regain her energy and health .
