ABOUT ARON HENLEY
At 43 years of age I was diagnosed with seronegative spondylitis, crippling arthritis, fatigue, weight loss and additional health issues. I had been to twenty six doctors, specialists and naturopaths, spending a lot of money to be made worse and still have no answers.
My health issues started with gout-type symptoms in my left big toe in my early thirties. My blood testing always came back within range, apart from always having high bilirubin and high IgE. The high bilirubin was diagnosed as being genetic. The high IgE I was told wasn't an issue. Eventually, after becoming disillusioned with conventional healthcare, I started to look into alternative therapies, natural health, and functional medicine.
Through hair testing I eventually worked out I had mercury poisoning and when I tried to find someone who understood heavy metals I couldn't. My health journey has been profound and after sharing what I learnt with other people many people have seen similar results with improved health. Many of those niggling health problems you associate with getting older are actually a result of toxicity.
Having already spent a lot of time learning about health and diet, I advanced my knowledge by finding independent biochemists, chemists and doctors, researching the medical literature and medical textbooks, health books and health groups on social media to gain more knowledge in biochemistry, metabolism and health to come up with nontoxic solutions to regain and recover my health.
My background is in electrical, electronic and engineering, which has taught me that to make or fix something you need to understand how it works and the body is the same. If you don't understand how it works, you can’t fix it. I didn't want to just treat symptoms, I wanted solutions to what I was going through. I did not want to take drugs to treat symptoms that could potentially lead to new health issues and a downward spiral in my health.
I have spent countless hours researching and understanding hair testing, the endocrine system, including thyroid, adrenals, sex hormones, blood sugar regulation, pathogens and how inflammation influences them. As I found out with my own health journey these areas are very poorly understood by conventional healthcare. To get true healing you need to get to the bottom of why you may have underlying inflammation. When a person has inflammation, it negatively affects cellular energy/metabolism, antioxidant and immune defences.
These are the symptoms that most affected me, and what I was able to reverse and recover from.
Arthritis in toes, feet, knees, lower back, spine, shoulder blades, elbows, hands and fingers.
The damage in my spine would have been consistent with early Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Fortunately I figured it out early enough without losing motor control, although I did suffer from some weakness in my arms at times.
Aching shoulders when standing.
Swollen lymph nodes.
Poor bladder control.
Low Testosterone/high estrogens.
Severe food intolerances.
Constantly straining muscles.
Receding bleeding gums.
Tingling and numbness.
Constant sinus infections.
Constant viral infections.
