My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, & Depression.

My Story: Overcoming Infertility, Chronic Fatigue, Depression. How the Savvy Team Helped Me Transform My Health!

One of the best things we discovered about the Savvy Team, was the extensive support received. I particularly loved the information I got as a result of the ongoing support, constant connection and feedback, I was able to adjust our program and actually take responsibility for my families health and wellbeing.

After enduring a range of hormonal imbalances as a teenager, and then being put on the Contraceptive Pill to supposedly ‘fix’ these, as the years went by my health deteriorated. I suffered from mild depression and finally debilitating chronic fatigue after a bout of glandular fever. Eventually, I discovered I was infertile and underwent three years of IVF with severe side-effects.

I don’t want to dwell on past history and old problems, but I guess the point to make from this – I THOUGHT I WAS NORMAL and so did the doctors I saw throughout my life to the age of 30.

I thought all of these problems were a normal part of being a woman and because I got no relief from talking to GPs about any of these issues (in fact, it took seeing a range of GPs and 3 months before the Glandular Fever was even diagnosed) I thought the only problem I had was in my head – and from various Doctor’s comments I think many of them thought so too.

Thyroid Issues, HRT, Obesity, Depression all GONE: How ‘Being Savvy’ Changed My Life!

I was very thin as young girl, till I got married and went on the first contraceptive pill just 1 month before (at 19 ½ years). After 3 weeks honeymoon, I came back 1 stone (6 ½ kilos) heavier than I had ever been, and my body is only just beginning to recover, almost forty years later.

The Pill really mucked-up my system for rest of my life. Before then I had been on no medication whatsoever, and only ever had 1 illness in my whole life to that point. I kept putting on weight – and every child-birth added extra weight that I couldn’t budge.

I went on numerous diets and spent $10,000s on weight-loss programs – Jenny, Craig, Gloria Marshall, gyms, medically-prescribed diet pills, weight-loss groups, etc, over 30-40 years. You name it and I’ve probably done it. But I just kept putting on weight. When doing those programs and diets I could never lose more than 10k, and I always put it back on double, when I went off any diet. I’d like to share what happened when I came across the Savvy Team and their wellness programs. Read More
