Having been tested – with negative results – for a range of conditions, her own doctor still made an appointment with a specialist as a ‘last resort’.
Knowing that all the specialist was likely to do, would be to confirm the lack of diagnosis, Rachel started her own investigation on the internet. She was also keen to find help with the growing number of hot flushes and high levels of anxiety she was experiencing, and because she was also so sleep deprived everything seemed to be so much more difficult. Her brain seemed to be in a constant fog.
When MyMT™ came up in her Facebook feed, she simply felt there was nothing to lose.
Following the strategies outlined in the MyMT™ Circuit-Breaker program was life-changing.
As she said, “I felt better quite quickly. My joint pain was reducing, and so were my hot flushes. With having a step-by-step program to follow with strategies that made so much sense, and turning around my sleeping patterns, my anxiety levels were heading down, not up.”
Although, weight loss wasn’t one of her goals, Rachel did begin to lose weight. However as Rachel said, “a bit of ‘tweaking’ and Wendy’s individualised advice, and her willingness to engage in my unique journey, helped me to work out how I could turn things around. In the end, these suggestions made all the difference”.
What is so powerful is the daily modeling that Wendy writes about via the FB posts. Because of her own work, Rachel understands the huge value of this aspect, and she remembers seemingly small, but vital stories of Wendy’s own life shared via FB, that have made some of the strategies in the program so real to her own journey.
The best thing for Rachel is that her family too, have gained from her involvement in MyMT™. Her commitment to all the solutions that MyMT™ provides, has seen a renewed focus from her husband on his own health and fitness, and the opportunity to complete a much discussed and keenly awaited family tramp, that they had thought was going to be impossible when she was suffering so much joint pain last year.
“This life-style change is something you need to keep working at – forming new habits and routines. I was on a course taking me to nowhere during menopause but I feel so empowered now. I also believe I have all the information now to keep me heading in the right direction. I am truly grateful, this has changed my life.’
