Helping dystonia

 

On Saturday afternoon I went to meet sufferers from Dystonia, and their helpers, at the Burghfield Community Sports Club. Dystonia is a painful and unpleasant condition which gives people uncontrollable muscle spasms.

I was asked to make awards to sufferers who have shown bravery and stoicism in tackling this condition, and to talk to their partners, friends and helpers. I was happy to do a little to help draw attention to this condition, and will of course take up any matter with the NHS or Social care that they bring to my attention.

    Hi ,
    I am a former sufferer of dystonia and want to offer you my support if you are still struggling with this awful disorder or another movement type of neurological disorder.

    I have put many years of my life into helping dystonia sufferers find relief, and through my efforts was able to get a medical study done at Johns Hopkins Medical Center with the program that helped me.

    It is my pleasure and privilege to work full time in helping dystonia sufferers find relief and get educated
    on the health fundamentals that I have discovered that can make a huge difference on improving one’s health.

    I have been effective in helping dozens of dystonia sufferers find relief and have worked with those in
    26 countries and 49 states. Please feel free to call me if you would like to learn more about my work
    and how I have been helping others.

    There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing those I work with find the relief and hope as I received many years ago.
    For more information, please visit my website at http://www.dystoniadisease.net.
    Thank you.
    Steve Zarren
