Testimonial: Client Follow up: "Asalam alaikum Sr. Ruqia I have noted the following observations since my rtt session for anxiety attacks in closed or crowded spaces... I have noticed subtle yet significant differences. 1) I feel calmer and at ease not anxious or on edge. 2) I get good nights sleep, but since the rtt I find I'm getting into deep sleep faster. 3) dreams 4) reduced itchiness on my arms 5) facial skin looking brighter and clearer 6) tiredness and heaviness cleared from my eyes 7) didn't feel much hunger during the white fasts day after rtt and hunger was satisfied after eating a smaller portion than usual. 8) I'm more carefree, mindful , present, engaged in conversations with kids 9) feel more grounded and consolidated in my mind and thoughts 10) my brain feels as though its remoulding 11) I went out for my morning walk and drive the next day without overthinking it. 12) pace myself and schedule without feeling guilty/ anxious. 13) I am able to reassure myself firmly with competence when any past memories come up. 14) nibbling thoughts have tamed. 15) feeling naturally positive (not forced). 16) i feel there's more to delve into, we've only scratched the surface. 17) my voice seems more pronounced, in fact it's the first thing i noticed right after we ended the rtt session, and it's still going strong, i usually sound drained and tired in phonecalls and voice notes. Thank you for following up."
Testimonial: Client: "I have been a patient of Dr Zafar’s for about a year and I have seen a remarkable turnaround in my health over that period. Whilst under Dr Zafar’s care I have lost 19kg in weight and am the lightest I have been since my teens. My blood pressure is very well under control and my medication has been significantly reduced and is likely to be eliminated in the next few months; I have been advised that I do not need to take supplements that will lower my blood pressure further – I never would have believed that possible! Cholesterol has significantly reduced; I also expect my statins to be reduced and eliminated in the next few months. My gut health has shown a remarkable turnaround; I no longer experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, or other IBS symptoms, and I haven’t needed to take Omeprazole for several months now. After years of misery, I was finally able to identify an intolerance to wheat which, amongst other things, caused episodes of joint and muscle pain which prevented me being able to exercise effectively and caused significant sleep disturbance. I no longer lose sleep with this pain and have been able to significantly increase my exercise levels and, despite being diagnosed with angina in 2014, my general health and fitness has improved beyond recognition. This is in no small part due to the extensive toolkit Dr Zafar has at her disposal, whether it is an elimination diet, Intermittent fasting or a therapeutic supplement regime. She clearly has a deep knowledge of how complementary therapies work and importantly how they interact with conventional medicine and very much takes an evidence-based approach to all her advice; this has helped me to cut through a lot of the marketing hype and misinformation currently out there and allowed me to focus with confidence on what I needed to do to develop a sustainable lifestyle change. When I started on this journey I was very concerned about my overall health. The sheer volume of medication I needed to take daily was increasing over time and I could see no end to it. A year on, I would never have believed I would feel this good and come so close to eliminating most of my medication in favour of a completely new lifestyle. Thank you Dr Zafar."
