About Natalia Yurkova
Ever since I was placed on a long course of antibiotics my health has never been the same again.
At the age of 17, almost overnight, I became a very sick person. Everything felt like an effort, even brushing my teeth in the morning gave me fatigue, I have developed severe eczema, I found it hard to concentrate on my studies, I literally felt like I had a “fog” in my brain…
I had stopped exercising, because I had no energy, I felt like anything I would put in my mouth would make me ill and give me rashes…
I have quickly gained over 10kg of body weight and couldn’t shift it no matter what I did. I felt like I was hardly eating anything anymore, but the scales would still show the same number…
After seeing a number of specialists I have been diagnosed with Chronic fatigue, Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), multiple food and chemical sensitivities, eczema, Hashimoto’s (Underactive thyroid), systemic candida and to top up the list heavy mercury toxicity…
I have been told that Hashimoto’s, which is a condition where your body attacks your own thyroid gland, is irreversible and is a diagnosis for life. I have been told that there is nothing that can be done for it and I should “watch” my pathology results and when my thyroid gland will “stop working” I should start taking synthetic thyroid hormones for life.
I was also told that I had to schedule an urgent operation for my polycystic ovaries and start on intravenous mercury chelation as soon as possible.
I felt at minimum overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to eat anymore, I felt like all foods were making me sick, I felt tired all the time, had really bad digestive issues, severe eczema on my face, neck and arms and much more.
I have seen a vast number of specialists and it felt like there were so many suggestions and ideas, but no one could find an explanation as to why someone who has been healthy and fit all of her life all of a sudden became so unwell…
I wanted to believe that we have internal resources to heal ourselves through healthy lifestyle that includes quality sleep, wholesome diet, exercise and relaxation. I kept looking for answers and solutions, but after spending so much time and thousands of dollars on treatments with no results, I decided to qualify as a health practitioner myself, find an answer to all of my problems and dedicate my life to helping people just like myself, who are so close to losing a belief of ever getting better…
Being a perfectionist I refused to believe that Hashimoto’s is irreversible, so I was on a quest to prove that it can be reversed and I did it!
I have fixed my own health and I am now full of energy, free of eczema, enjoy a huge variety of foods and am healthiest and fittest I have ever been!
And now with all of my energy, enthusiasm, knowledge and experience and incredible passion for helping people regain their health and vitality, I am looking forward to hearing all of your stories and finding solutions to even most complicated health problems!
