I started using the hot bed therapy in August 2007 after being introduced by a friend of mine. I was, at the time, having a very serious back problem (lumba spondolysis) and had tried all means to lessen the pain I was having. The attack happened in June last year and I was hospitalized and underwent all sorts of tests, eg. X-rays, MRIs, to determine whether I was having bone cancer. The result was negative. I could not eat my meals sitting down and also had a problem sleeping for 3 weeks. Getting in and out of the car was also a big problem as I had to go for physiotherapy every other day. The doctor advised me that it was fruitless to have an operation because of the large amount of spurs on my backbone, and it was too risky to do so. To ease the pain, I had to take painkillers for some while and this was not doing any good to my kidneys.
When I first went for the hotbed therapy, I had a problem getting down on the floor and had to have someone help me lie down and get up. After my first visit, I checked my BP at home and found that it had dropped and that my heartbeat had become regular. I had been on high blood pressure medication for a very long time and since my BP had dropped to a normal level, after numerous visits to Ecoparadise, the dosage had been reduced as advised by the cardiologists, but not advisable to totally stop the medication. I also have Type II Diabetes, and the blood sugar level has also dropped, so has the uric acid. I used to take 300mg daily when the uric acid level was high, now the dosage has been reduced to 100mg. The reduction in dosage of my medication are closely supervised by my doctors.
My skin rashes, which I had for a long time, has also disappeared. The skin problem that I had had caused me sleepness nights and I had to see skin specialists, but there was not much improvement.
Initially, when I was having the very bad back problem, I went for the hot bed therapy 3x week, for almost half a year. Now, I go to Ecoparadise twice a week for maintenance purposes. I have been feeling fine with my back ever since I went for this therapy treatment in August 2007 and have not been to see the specialists for any problem, to date.
