My first meeting with Alma was January 09 .I was on the internet searching for answers when I came across Alma’s website. Why was I searching for answers, well for 12 months before attending Alma I literally could not function on a daily basis. I had been in hospital for a week in sept 08 with symptoms of a stroke, left sided numbness, slurred speech, memory loss and unbelievable fatigue. I was diagnosed with Migraine and sent home. The day I left the hospital I felt worse than when I went in , I could not stand up for more than two minutes , the fatigue was preventing me from carrying out daily tasks like loading a dishwasher , sweeping the floor going up the stairs.. I could not drive as I was getting regular dizzy spells and the fatigue made it too dangerous. Also my left side arm and leg were still a bit numb. I could not go out too far as I would be extremely tired within a short time and have to lie down. This went on for weeks and I knew it wasn’t just migraine. I went back to my doctor and was put through a string of tests and nothing showed up to my dismay. I couldn’t get any answers as to why I was like this. I changed my diet completely not that it was bad in the first place but just to try out high energy foods. That didn’t work, I began to get incredibly stressed as I thought this is my life now and how am I ever going to get past this. I went back to my doctor six months after all this began and because I got upset with the frustration she told me it was probably in my head and referred me to a shrink. I knew this wasn’t mental as seven years previously I had a similar thing happen but not to the extent it was this time, that time I had a bacterial infection in my blood and was laid up for a month. I asked could I have an infection again and was told it would have turned up in the tests, which I replied well did you test for it and then I was dismissed again. So you can imagine my frustration at being sent to a shrink, reluctantly going on anti depressants which didn’t change my energy levels one bit. I was still in limbo I wanted so much to be out walking, partaking in activities with family without having to lie down after a few minutes. At this stage I couldn’t remember what my active life was like before all this and every day would pray that I would be able to make it through a day without having to lie down with fatigue.
I was trawling the internet as you do when you feel like you have been let down by conventional medicine, looking for anyone that might be able to help me, and I found Alma. My first visit with Alma was in Jan 09. I was a bit nervous going in as I wasn’t sure what to expect , all the other doctors I’d been didn’t look up from their desks when they spoke to me and they made me feel like I was imagining my symptoms . Alma sat me down and we started talking about what was going on with me, I didn’t tell her everything at that moment as for previous reasons I thought she might think it was in my head. Alma then started testing me. Straight away Alma was able to tell me more of the symptoms I hadn’t discussed with her previously, through questions to which I answered yes to all. I could feel the tears starting to come as finally I was getting answers I had waited for . I felt vindicated. I was completely run down and I was allergic to tomatoes which accounted for some tummy trouble. I left the clinic that day with a huge weight lifted and above all hope.
Alma sent me home with drops and vitamins to take on a daily basis. First week I felt a bit worse which Alma said I would, I continued to take them for a month and already I felt better, I had a little bit more energy not so much that I could drive or walk but a definite improvement. A month later I went back for my next visit and surely my energy levels and immune system had risen, to my delight. Next visit same again, but more noticeable at home as I was doing a lot more without having to lie down as much. Next visit same again this time I’d driven short distances at home to the shops, painted in the house, walked a bit. Each visit after that my energy was and immune system rose. My family and friends couldn’t believe the difference, next visit I drove down and felt great I was able to do the journey. I
It’s now August and I’m coming to the end of my treatment, I’m driving, I’m walking 40 to 50 mins a day , I’m out with friends , I have a lot more energy , housework is no problem and the only time I have to lie down is when I’m going to bed at night. I know it probably seems like a long road to recovery but it was worth it, I had a year of complete misery before I met Alma, and she changed my life. It works you just have to be patient and you’ll get there. I did! I would finally like to thank Alma for her kindness and support; she’s a lovely lady who is not judgmental but very understanding. If I had not found her by accident that day on the internet I know I would be still in limbo waiting on answers.
I would recommend anyone who has had a similar experience, if you feel exhausted all the time, or just know there’s something just not right and your doctors don’t give you the answers (as you know sometimes if there’s no pill for it well it doesn’t exist). Go see Alma at the Amber Centre. She changed my life and I’m sure she can do it for you. Thank You Alma.
Before I started attending the Amber Centre, I was suffering with swollen glands, sore throats – even though I had my tonsils removed within the last 3 years – chronic fatigue, endless flu’s and bugs. For the first visit I was skeptical, but my health improved a little. After the third/fourth visit there was major improvement. All remedies are easy on the body, and easy to take. Six months on my health is back, and I am in great form, and have better resistance to flu’s and bugs. It definitely worked for me.
Thank you Alma.
There are some ailments that only the doctors will take care of - but others they are ill equipped to deal with.
When my energy levels were low in comparison to my personal norm, with no good reason, I went to Alma in Amber who had been recommended to me by a friend.
I don’t understand how the kinetic method works but Alma allergy tested me, and gave me drops to help redress the balance – literally from the first dose I took I felt more energetic, more like myself. It took 2 further visits and varying strengths of drops to be completely back on track. Since then I positively recommend my friends to Alma Green at The Amber Centre.

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition of prolonged and severe tiredness or weariness (fatigue) that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other conditions. To be diagnosed with this condition, your tiredness must be severe enough to decrease your ability to participate in ordinary activities by 50%.
The fact is that doctors really don't know the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. Some researchers suspect it may be caused by a virus, such as Epstein-Barr virus or human herpes virus-6 (HHV-6).
Recent studies have shown that chronic fatigue syndrome may be caused by inflammation of pathways in the nervous system, and that this inflammation may be some sort of immune response or process. CFS may occur when a viral illness is complicated by a problem with the body's immune response. Other factors such as age, prior illness, stress, environment, or genetics may also play a role. CFS most commonly occurs in women ages 30 to 50.
Symptoms of CFS are similar to those of most common viral infections (muscle aches, headache, and fatigue), often developing within a few hours or days and lasting for 6 months or more.
• Fatigue or tiredness, never experienced to this extent before (new onset), lasting at least 6 months and not relieved by bed rest
• Fatigue that is severe enough to restrict activity (serious fatigue develops with less than one-half of the exertion compared to before the illness)
• Fatigue lasting more than 24 hours after an amount of exercise that would normally be easily tolerated
• Mild fever
• Sore throat
• Lymph node tenderness in the neck or armpit
• Muscle weakness, all over or multiple locations, not explained by any known disorder
• Muscle aches
• Feeling unrefreshed after sleeping an adequate amount of time
• Headaches, different from previous headaches in quality, severity, or pattern
• Joint pain, often moving from joint to joint without joint swelling or redness
• Forgetfulness or other similar symptoms including difficulty concentrating, confusion, or irritability
