When I first sought a consultation with Adelaide Naturopath, Peter, I was suffering from sleep disturbances and extreme fatigue.

I would fall asleep early in the evening and be wide awake within a couple of hours. I couldn’t get back to sleep. When it was time to wake up, I still wanted to sleep.

Pathology tests had shown that my thyroid function was lowered. I was supposed to wait for three months and then be retested. If the problem had persisted, long term medication was the proposed solution. Waiting 3 months for a solution didn’t seem like a workable option, as I was sleeping for as little as 2 hours and estimated my mind & body functioning at about 30%.
It was also embarrassing that if I got comfortable or sat quietly for any length of time during the day, I would nod off to sleep. I resorted to caffeine. I was like a caffeine addict and it was more like caffeine hits than drinking coffee; 3-4 teaspoons of coffee at increasingly frequent intervals. Couldn’t get coffee strong enough or fast enough, which wasn’t helping my sleep either.

Within a week of seeing Peter I felt an improvement – I was sleeping 3-4 hours; within 2 weeks 5-6 hours and inside of four weeks back to 7-8 hours and feeling well.

Before prescribing any herbal remedies, Peter took great care to consider other health factors.  Peters earns the title of complimentary medicine as he actively sought as much information as possible from any tests and consultations with my medical practitioner.  I have already recommended him to a number of my friends.
