A condition that causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness, Dawn’s life changed after she was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Hand in hand with menopause, Dawn sought out the help of Simone Thomas Wellness to tackle the debilitating symptoms of her condition.
Discover how we worked with Dawn to turn her life around, and how our expertly formulated dietary supplements have made an incredible impact and started seeing improvements in just 1 week.
Living with both fibromyalgia and the menopause was extremely tough for Dawn, and she experienced a range of upsetting symptoms including nausea, vomiting, brain fog, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, poor skin and severe exhaustion and sleep disturbances. In fact, she was tired to the extent that she came home from work and would go straight to bed for an hour or two, just so she could make it to 9pm. One of the most challenging symptoms of Dawn’s condition was the chronic pain, which she compared to the feeling of having run a marathon.
Deciding that she could take no more, Dawn turned to Simone Thomas Wellness for guidance and began her journey through a Bioenergetics examination.
Bioenergetics & Guidance
Initially, we referred Dawn to Simone and her team of professionals where she then took an advanced health screening using Bioenergetics. Health screenings of this kind are highly effective in picking up on food sensitivities, environmental sensitivities, identifying your specific nutritional needs, your hormone balance, the toxins in your body and much more, so a consultation of this kind was important for identifying the best way to treat Dawn’s condition. From there, a bespoke plan is tailored to your needs.
Dawn was advised to follow an anti-inflammatory diet, which eliminates dairy, sugar, wheat, white potatoes and pork. Chronic inflammation is strongly linked to today’s most deadly diseases including cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, making it extremely important for Dawn, who suffered with chronic inflammation, to make the necessary lifestyle and dietary adjustments.
Did you know: You can strengthen your immune system, enhance cellular detoxification and improve your fight against chronic disease by focusing on eating foods that have anti-inflammatory properties?
Dawn was therefore recommended a series of Simone Thomas Wellness dietary supplements to tackle inflammation, boost her energy and combat her symptoms from the inside out.
Dawn began taking a series of different Simone Thomas Wellness supplements, including:
Disease in the body begins in the gut, with the gut having been proven to produce even more neurotransmitters than the brain. The ‘mothership of the body’, it was essential that we took the 5 R’s approach to gut health to ensure Dawn’s digestive health improved to allow her body to recover.
REMOVE. Removing offending items such as toxins, bacteria, fungus and foods that could be acting as stressors on your system.
REPAIR. Consuming an unprocessed diet and giving the body substances known to heal the gut.
RESTORE. Introducing probiotics into the system, such as Everyday Wellness supplements, to help reinforce and maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract and to help fight illness.
REPLACE. Getting bile salts, digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid levels to optimal levels to maintain and promote healthy digestion.
RE-FOCUS. Looking at the whole person and their life, ensuring they are doing the essentials required for a healthy and happy life.
With 6 different types of probiotics, Dawn started her supplement journey by taking 2 capsules of Everyday Wellness each morning on an empty stomach, with a glass of filtered water.
Packed Puresea Organic Seaweed, Vitamins E, C, Selenium and other incredible vitamins, Dawn also began supplementing 2 Super Greens capsules each morning to improve digestion and immunity, whilst supporting healthy hair and skin.
Super Greens uses a highly powerful combination of alkalising, cleansing and restoring ingredients to detoxify the body which in turn will boost energy, improve mental clarity and minimise aches and pains – a key symptom of Dawn’s.
Both fibromyalgia and the menopause have been linked to hair loss and a dry scalp, meaning it was important that Dawn began taking biotin supplements for hair. Taking 1 tablet a day on an empty stomach with water, our high-strength biotin aids stronger and shinier hair, radiant skin and improved wellbeing.
And last, but certainly not least, Dawn started taking SkinQuencher supplements, packed with Peptan marine collagen from the global leading collagen brand, and vitamin C to promote younger-looking, vibrant and glowing skin.
Unlike bovine collagen that comes from meat, our marine collagen benefits from having a lower impact on the environment, whilst also being more easily absorbed by the body, therefore making it easier for the body to use the nutrients for skin health benefits. A recent study also demonstrated the effects of marine collagen for wound healing and reducing inflammation, making SkinQuencher a highly powerful addition to Dawn’s routine.
After just a week of taking our supplements for fibromyalgia and menopause, and having previously suffered with chronic fatigue, Dawn was able to stay awake until 9pm without a nap when she got home. Treating these sleep difficulties alone has made a huge, positive impact on Dawn’s life and general wellbeing.
Additionally, with the help of Everyday Wellness, Dawn has been going to the toilet more regularly which has been extremely helpful in tackling constipation and has helped to reduce uncomfortable bloating.
Dawn described her hair prior to supplementation as ‘straw-like’ but has said it is now lovely and soft – which we know from experience is a great way of helping to establish your identity and feel your best.
