Ruth Winmill has been a tower of strength , knowledge and support during my recovery period. In June 2005 I suffered a prolapsed disc (L5-S1) in my Lower back. After examination and MRI scans I was advised by the surgical staff that an operation would be required. I was not keen on this option as I had heard of many who had taken this road and had never fully recovered.
I made contact with Ruth initially through the Health shop in Karori when buying supplements for our child. She noticed my difficulty in movement and it was not long before she was openly offering her depth of knowledge and experience in dealing with back complaints. Ruth’s knowledge and experience comes from both training and practical experience.
By following Ruth’s advice I have managed a recovery without surgery that sees me playing tennis, taking long walks, performing usual household activities and I have been able to to work full time. I have done this in three months. The surgeons offering their traditional methods were talking of a possible recovery in 18 months.
I have been so impressed with Ruth’s professional knowledge and ability that I would happily recommend her as a Naturopath and adviser in lower back recovery.
