Dear Mr. Zoumbaneas,
I want to thank you for all your insight, knowledge and patience in helping me not only understand, but also learn the best strategies in dealing with dysfunctional eating and Type II Diabetes.
It is so important to have a well-informed group of professionals, who are flexible enough to be able to adjust therapy programmes—dietary, medicinal and supportive—in order to achieve the best results for their patients. After all, we are individuals, who despite the fact that we may have similar illnesses, accredited to eating disorders, the roots of which lie deep inside each of us, we are also different the one from the other.
About a year and a half ago, I was referred to you by my reflexologist, as I was just diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. When I came to you, I had a fasting sugar of 270 and an HAC1 of 10, as well as elevated lipid and liver function levels. The combination of excess weight — at that time, I weighed 106 kilos, not my highest weight, — but also a strong family history of Type II Diabetes by my mother’s family, not only did it put me in a high risk category of getting the disease, but also of developing serious complications related to the disease, thus I had to take drastic measures.
In parallel to your eating plan and dietary supplements, I was referred to an endocrinologist, who subscribed me medication (2 different kinds) and I also systematically went for reflexology treatments, which helped reduce my glucose levels. After a few months, being a Reiki Master myself, I began to incorporate Reiki, meditation and visualisations into my health regime. As a result, my glucose levels are now within normal range. My last HAC1 was 5.1 and my fasting glucose 98. Also all of my lipid and liver function tests are normal now. I am still following my diet plan and taking my supplements and I am now taking only 1 medication for glucose regulation and will possibly reduce that as well in the near future.
I cannot stress the importance of having a diverse team of well informed, open-minded professionals and holistic approach to dealing with illnesses. We are not only what we eat and we are not just products of our genetics tempered by our environment, but we are multidimensional beings affected by the vibrations inside us and surrounding us.
Again a deep and heartfelt thank you!
