Dear M



Thank you for your question. There are a number of possible causes of your symptom, ranging from simply trace mineral deficiencies like magnesium to more complicated inflammatory issues like a blood clot or a cyst behind the knee. I would recommend taking a break from strenuous exercise, increasing your mineral intake (either through the use of himalayan crystal salt or something like happy water or concentrace) and if there is no resolution in 24-48 hours to seek the opinion of your local GP so s/he can exclude the more nefarious causes. If it is a simple muscle tension then rest and massage will be of greatest benefit. If the minerals do work then great, but ask youself why you are mineral deficient in the first place.



Many thanks and warm regards

Dear S

Many thanks for your question.

In this particular instance, and due to your signs and symptoms, I suggest that you make an appointment to see your general practitioner so that he or she can fully assess and examine you properly. There is a lot that I can discuss at length here, but you do need to see your GP please.

I hope you feel better soon.

Warm regards

Angela

Dear R

Thank you for your question. It sounds like you've been around the block with this issue. I have to say that the brief history you provide is not really enough for me to offer an informed opinion. There are several conditions that could cause the symptoms you present with, from a simple mineral deficiency to a more complex nerve or rheumatological disorder. Without a proper history, examination and some testing I cannot answer any of the questions you have asked.

I would recommend making an appointment by calling 076-229-4662 if you would like to pursue this concern with me.

Many thanks and warm regards

Dear A

Thank you for your question. It is very short and I do not think I will be able to offer you an informed opinion without further detail. Possible diagnosis that come to mind include sciatica, lumbar or sacral spine problems, muscular or tendon issues, haemorrhoids or anal fissures and nutritional imbalances. I recommend visiting your practitioner for a proper consultation.

Many thanks and warm regards

Hello Dr Yesheen

Today (2nd Feb) I discussed my husband (Charl Vorster’s, whose age is 53) condition with Peter and Beryn Daniels from Superfoods - who I believe you know. (I attended their raw food course a while ago). My husband is a diabetic and has now developed oedema in his feet. Peter & B suggested I contact you as I mentioned how difficult it was to find a health practitioner who could monitor the health change process. The feet problem (according to Dr Guy Ashburn (osteopath) is mainly lymph & stems from his knees - i.e. not enough movement caused mainly by lifestyle - he works all day and is doing his MBA so spends far too much time in a sitting position not moving around enough. His diet even suggested by dieticians - is not good. The food pyramid story etc (He is a typical SA meat and potato guy). I have convinced him he needs more live plant foods in his diet etc and would very much like him to transition (i.e. as per Peter and Beryl’s protocol - being plant / enzyme based whole live foods) my reasoning is that the only documented cases of healing / reversing diabetes are as per Dr Gabriel Cousens and Dr Robert Young is the way to go. It is very drastic but feel this needs drastic measures to restore health but needs to be monitored (being diabetic) in the change process. He will never I believe be totally veg but initially he needs to transition to plant and then once health is re-established -reintroduce small amounts of the right kind of meat at intervals. (re his activity he has been getting to gym to at least do some cycling for his knees).

Peter mentioned that you might be opening up in Bergvliet? If so could you advise?

Many thanks for your time and patience reading all this.

Kind regards

Dear D

Thank you for your message. I think that incorporating increasing amounts of raw living enzyme-rich foods into your diet is certainly a big step in the right direction. From the brief history you provide I think that your husband may need a protocol that is more specific to his unique constellation of symptoms though. I'm happy to read about your consults with an osteopath and a dietician but how are you managing to integrate all the different ideas about health care into one easy-to-apply plan?

I am indeed consulting in the Southern suburbs, at the Steps-To-Health Courtyard until the end of March and thereafter at our brand new Aya transformation center opening on Dreyersdal Rd. You are welcome to call the office at 076-229-4662 if you would like to make an appointment where it would be my pleasure to discuss the case in greater detail.

Warm regards and many thanks

Yesheen
