Olivia has been treating me on and off for seven years now for a variety of problems. From mental-health struggles to women’s problems to nerve damage from a prolapsed disc. Some of these problems had been ongoing for several years and I tried Chinese medicine as a last resort. Having had nothing but positive experiences in the past, I turned to Olivia when my health once again took a decline.
I caught Covid-19 in November 2020 and have since been diagnosed with Long-Covid. I have been left with debilitating headaches, joint pain, fatigue, loss of smell and taste, numbness in my extremities, brain fog, breathlessness, memory loss, hair loss, heart palpitations and constant relapses of symptoms. Fellow Long-Covid sufferers will know how this list is simply endless and how much this completely turns your life upside down.
I have had 8 sessions with Olivia so far, consisting of acupuncture and taking herbal preparations and tablets that she recommends. I have already seen a massive improvement in my health and for the first time since catching COVID-19 feel positive about my future. I no longer have bed-bound headaches and have a lot more energy. Most of my symptoms have eased greatly and I have resumed somewhat a normal life. Although I still have a way to go, mentally and physically, I am in a much better place.
I can’t thank Olivia enough for how much she has helped me over the years. She simply was born to help people and I can’t recommend her enough. I always know I am in very safe hands.
I first found Hongwei Chinese Medical Centre in the early months of 2019. I couldn’t get over a persistent chest infection with a deep horrible cough despite 2 lots of antibodies. I felt so ill. I have used Chinese medicine with some success in the past, so was happy to find Olivia in the Hornchurch practice. Through treatment over several weeks with herbs, acupuncture and cupping I became well again.
In March 2020 I came down with what I am sure was Covid 19. I was not tested but had the classic symptoms, a fever, severe aches and pains with a dry cough. After 1 week, I began to feel better because the aches and pains and temperature had gone, however the cough got worse. A few days later however, I started to feel fatigue and exhausted and the cough settled deep into my lungs. I lost my sense of smell and taste completely. This then improved after 1 week, but after a day or two, what I call a 3rd wave came with returning of symptoms. I contacted Olivia for treatment as I was unable to shift the illness and had to return to work. After conducting her consultation, she sent me herbs over several weeks, and I gradually got better and the cough went completely.
Without this treatment, I believe that my chances of going on to develop long Covid were high. In my twenties I had travelled to India, and found myself very ill with a virus of some kind. The after effects troubled me over the coming year, with the symptoms returning again and again, and I ultimately had post viral fatigue syndrome for some years. I recovered from this eventually, but always had to be very careful not to overdo things or I would feel ill and drained of energy. I have been prone to getting unwell with any cold or flu virus since that time.
I am so grateful to have my health back, and believe that the Chinese herbs and treatment helped me to recover and avoid worse long-term illness. Ingrid
To Dear Olivia
My first contact with Olivia was several years ago. I had two operations for sinus problems – was feeling very depressed, continuously catching colds and had been diagnosed with asthma . The continuous colds affected the asthma so I was a regular visitor to a walk in centre, where they would put me on a nebulizer to relieve symptoms. Olivia’s treatment with acupuncture and herbs helped me to recover – I haven’t had a cold for a very long time, The asthma is well under control.
Olivia has also treated me for UTI. My doctor prescribed antibiotics which would clear the problem for a while but it would recur. This went on for about five years until eventually the antibiotics were not working. It is two years since Olivia’s treatment and again it was successful. The UTI has not recurred.
My most recent experience of Olivia’s treatment: I had a problem with my knee and could not walk. I went to a local walk in clinic for an xray as I had tripped in the garden and wondered if the bone was broken. They said the muscle and the tendon was causing the problem and gave me a crutch and some painkillers. A week later, I still couldn’t walk so I went to see Olivia. If you are in pain and can’t walk there is not much you can do. I found that very frustrating. After a short course of acupuncture and herbs, I am walking normally again – without the walking stick!
Now, when I have a problem I would always make an appointment to see Olivia. I think I can honestly say that Olivia has changed my life.
Thank you for your help. I have had five treatments over the past five weeks and there has been a significant improvement in my Tennis Elbow. I will be returning for some more treatments in the next few weeks and hopefully that will resolve almost completely.
Two months ago my GP told me that I had Swine Flu. I had a very high temperature for three days and had to stay in bed. Then I got this terrible headache where I could hardly open my eyes. This continued for about three weeks, I felt so tired all the time and needed to sleep which meant that I couldn’t continue my normal life.
I went back to my GP who said that it wasn’t possible that I could still have the virus and thought of Olivia who had helped me before in many ways and knew that I must go to her for help. Immediately she said that I still had the virus within me and could help me. Olivia prescribed acupuncture, herbs and tablets, as I was so unwell. Now three weeks later, I have more energy and not feeling so tired and starting to feel that I can get back to my old life again. I will continue with my treatment with Olivia until I feel completely well and stronger than ever.
I have full trust in this lovely lady, she is a true Doctor and healer.
Thank you so much for the treatment for my snoring. It was so bad that my partner was in despair. After only a few sessions of acupuncture and herbal tablets my snoring has all but disappeared.
