Hello, I’m Linda Parker. This past summer my 76 year old father had a terrible accident at our family summer home. After staining our wooden decks with a sprayer, as he always does he kept working without changing his clothes. He proceeded to burn the dried weed from the lake and caught fire. He sustained second degree burns over 15% of his body.
While in intensive care for several weeks, he didn’t sleep, with no improvement in his condition and undoubtedly fearing he wasn’t going to make it as was my whole family.
Dad experienced one serious, life endangering complication after another. It was an intense emotional roller coaster ride for all of us. I knew I had to do something. I purchased the How to Get Well Faster Teleseminar Series. The information and techniques given are truly amazing. I followed several steps.
Very long story short, I know in my heart that empowering my father with just some of the tools and techniques were what ultimately put him on his road to recovery. After 30 days in intensive care and just 5 short weeks at home he is back to himself, even though the doctors told us we were lucky he survived at all. They also said that it would take over one year before he would be back to his normal routine. Today he is living and enjoying his life.
Thank you, Dr. Elaine R. Ferguson for empowering us with such brilliant information. My Dad thanks you as well.
Dr Ferguson has been an invaluable resource to me and my family.
Her holistic approach has given me a new vitality. I have more energy and focus.
She has been a wealth of information. It’s so important to have a physician who considers both holistic and conventional approaches to address your health concerns.
I have and will continue to recommend her to my family and friends.
Until I met Dr. Ferguson over twenty eight years ago, I had absolutely no idea what benefits of a holistic approach to medicine could be. While I had learned of her education: Brown University, Duke University Medical School and University of Chicago Hospital Residency, her manner of treatment was immediately impressed by her capacity to carefully listen and the accuracy of her diagnosis. She did not reach for the customary pad for pharmaceutical prescriptions but provided me with a well thought out combination of vitamins, herbs, fruit and vegetables and how to apply them to address my concerns. It is also through her that I learned the value of meditation and spiritual well being. All of which is articulated in her first book; New Frontiers In Medicine “HEALING, HEALTH AND TRANSFORMING”.
The first concern I brought to her was my difficulty with extreme insomnia and she was able to provide relief without traditional medicines. When my wife was suffering from a severe throat ailment she asked that I contact Dr. Ferguson who provided treatment that immediately relieved her pain and a regiment for healing. She has also treated me children and has advised us on the care of our grandchildren. The ailments she has addressed for us are too numerous to mention here, but we now see all of them through our rear view mirrors. It was through her that we learned the preventive approach to excellent health and we strictly adhere to this guide for wellness. I have read her holistic health newsletter since its inception and recommend it to all of our friends and acquintances.
We are all so grateful to have known her as she continues to gain more and more insight into alternative healing and so willingly shares it with us. I urge everyone to subscribe to her blog and recommend it to the friends and loved ones im your life.
I sincerely appreciate her patient care of me and my family as she is always in our thoughts and prayers.
