Doreen's Testimonials


Natural Fertility Management

I would highly recommend the services and care that Doreen Schwegler provides through All Degrees of Health. Doreen helped me get my body and mind in a healthy state to conceive through IVF. She took into consideration my individual circumstances, history and what I wanted to achieve. She really does use natural therapies and techniques to compliment science so it is a truly holistic approach. She ensured that I had adequate nutrients in my diet and supplied supplements so I made healthy eggs, and helped me minimize any harmful things that were adversely affecting my health. She also helped me to understand my fertility to maximize conception timing. The result - I got pregnant straight away, saving me lots of heartache and financial stress. She also supported me throughout the pregnancy. My baby is due in 6 weeks time and I feel fantastic! Doreen made what could have been a very stressful, heart-breaking, time consuming and expensive journey, an enjoyable, affordable and exciting one.

We were trying to conceive for about 2 years as I was diagnosed with both endometriosis AND polycystic ovaries (not the full blown PCOS as I was still having regular but painful periods). My husband was found to have lowered motility and increased abnormal sperm. IVF was considered our only option but I heard about Doreen's work through a girlfriend who had troubles getting pregnant and conceived successfully (twice in her early 40s and had 2 bright, alert babies). It took patience, awful herbal tonics and a fair few supplements initially, and time to drive from the my country home to Essendon once a month.

During the 6 month period of workup (Doreen explained "endo" takes time to reduce the inflammation and oestrogen imbalance that causes the problem in the first place), my periods became less painful, I began to understand my cycles and fertile symptoms, my IBS symptoms improved and we both had heaps more energy. Friends would comment about my clear skin and sense of well-being! We got the "go-ahead" to begin conception attempts, and within 2 cycles got the positive pregnancy test!! Yippee!... But, I began to bleed after 3 weeks. I contacted my hospital and Doreen immediately. They recommendation bed rest, and Doreen gave me some "anti-miscarriage" herbs. These stopped the bleeding, and the ultrasound showed there was no problem with the baby. After stopping and starting bleeding, and the herbs, I went onto deliver a gorgeous little boy. That was 3 years ago. I have since conceived naturally again (it took a few more visits to Doreen to remind me about the pre-conception principles and more herbs and pills). I am due to deliver my second any day.

Update (4 years later): We are now the proud parents of 3 children. We attribute my pregnancies and their health to Doreen's professional, personalised and effective treatment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My recommendations to those trying unsuccessfully to conceive is to give the natural option a go first. At the very least you will feel and be healthier! MR Thank you for preparing my body for a healthy pregnancy which resulted in the birth of our beautiful baby. P.McP Just wanted to let you know that the potion you concocted for me with the aim of decreasing my inflated FSH, has miraculously returned to normal. The last 3 levels were 19, 21 and 24 and after a week on the potion it went back to 15. This has allowed us another chance at a MIFT cycle which we have begun today. Will keep you posted. Cheers and thanks heaps.

I just wanted to say thank you for your great advice on getting my son to sleep through the night! Since I saw you lastweek, he's now slept the past 5 nights through, as we instituted the "sticker incentive" in the mornings after he's slept (and the occasional present if needed). Thank you so much for giving us back our sleep!!! All the best,
- ML

Bowen Therapy

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for what can only be classed as 'a cure' for a number of persistent pains that I have been enduring over recent years. The pain that I came to you with after a severe fall I had (not too much fun in your seventies!) had relinquished after only 3 treatments . Astonishing!! What really took me by surprise was, that without any advice from myself, you were able to identify and eliminate pains that I had been struggling with down my right side since a quad bypass heart operation in 1997. I had originally sought treatment from a physiotherapist for approximately 1 ½ years and although it gave me significant relief it was not able to eliminate my pains. As with trying all new treatments I had a bit of scepticism about the Bowen treatment. It is one thing to read about how it has helped so many others but to try it for yourself is always a little more difficult. On that note, however, I am happy to say that I am no longer a sceptic .. IT WORKED!!!! . and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thankyou so much for the relief you have given me.

About twelve months ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Vertigo secondary to left abnormal labyrinth, diagnosed by having tests at the Western Hospital, Footscray Victoria. I had certain drugs prescribed to me by my neurologist and they had no effect to my condition. I would get dizzy spells when moving my head quickly, when things moved around me and when I was at heights. I was in a lift one time and only needed to go up three floors, when the lift stopped I nearly fell over and was quite dizzy for about five minutes. The Doctors told me there was nothing they could do and it would take time for the Vertigo to disappear. After about 6 months of being off work and not getting anywhere, a friend of mine suggested that I try Bowen Therapy. She had known of a person who suffered from Vertigo and had been basically cured from having Bowen. I made an appointment to see Doreen Schwegler and to be honest, I was sceptical about this "natural therapy". I had three sessions and then went back to the Western Hospital to have the same tests as I had before. The tests showed no abnormality and I was feeling as though this treatment might have really worked. I have increasingly been getting better and will return to work at the end of February. I have just had my fourth Bowen session as a follow up and I truly believe that Bowen Therapy has helped my condition. I would recommend this treatment to anyone.
