I have been ill for at least 4 years and was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) 3 years ago. Having been through a number of tests and seen several specialists nothing else could be found. I literally went from being a happy, healthy 24/7 person to someone who could barely get out of bed and get dressed. I constantly had flu-like symptoms, felt exhausted, my appetite changed, I couldn't concentrate, I would sleep for 14 hours and still not feel energized. I would smell smoke that wasn't there, I would feel as though my skin was crawling and wake up with my fingers and toes throbbing, just to name a few of these rotten symptoms. My family doctor told me there was nothing that could be done to help me and to simply accept my illness. I sought my own treatments - Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Psychiatrist, the list goes on and still no improvement. I was feeling very desperate, defeated and depressed.
I came to see Shawn Persaud in November 2016, he carried out an assessment which was incredibly thorough - lasting at least 2 hours. He then changed my diet, added vitamins and supplements which were very specific to my body needs - he used muscle testing with Applied Kinesiology to detect what my body needed and what it was intolerant to, I must admit I found this mind blowing and was a little sceptical. I had weekly sessions, which included emotional, sound/colour, and acupuncture therapies. I would receive regular informative emails after my appointments with suggested recipes, psychological backgrounds to help me emotionally and many other helpful life changing suggestions.
A few weeks after Christmas, I started to feel more myself and in February (2017) I took a 10 day trip back to the UK, which was particularly gruelling, lots of travelling, visiting family and friends, but I was more than able to keep up, my family were so shocked at the improvement and were so happy to see the old me coming back, I couldn't quite believe it myself. I have continued to improve but I have also learned not to take my health for granted, CFS is an illness that needs to be respected and rushing back to life as it was prior to my illness did set me back, it's baby steps and lots of them and I feel so much better. I will not be aiming to go back to the "old Christine" who ran around all day, with Shawn's help I have learned a new way of being, healthier and less stressful, I have learned my boundaries and the ability to say "no," to be selfish and take care of my own needs.
Shawn Persaud is the type of person who is a natural at helping people - physically and emotionally, he holds a vast amount of knowledge and skills and I am quite sure this is just the beginning of his healing journey, I believe he will continue to do good and great things!

Depression & Severe Anxiety
Before meeting with Shawn, I experienced severe anxiety and depression. I would wake in the night with body tremors, nausea and an overwhelming feeling of helplessness. I had previously tried acupuncture, herbal supplements and numerous other methods to remedy my condition but nothing worked. While under Shawn’s care, I saw immediate change. He was able to diagnose an unknown parasite, which was the root cause of my anxiety. Within days of being treated I saw an immediate change in my energy, mood and overall mental health. Since seeing Shawn, I have learned the right vitamins to take for my body and how to better eat for my health. My symptoms have lessened immensely and when I do experience anxiety, it is rare and much more manageable.

he is phenomenal!
I've known Shawn for a number of years and am grateful that we were brought into each other's lives. Shawn Persaud is an incredibly bright, devoted and caring individual who not only takes his work seriously, but he has discovered his passion and mission.
He not only cares about nutrition, he cares about healing people on every level. For him, it is a way of life to be a healer, and that can be felt tangibly, physically, and spiritually when communicating about all topics with him.
I always walk away feeling uplifted after speaking with him, or running through a session. His passion and devotion to alleviating pain and suffering in others is a gift, and must be experienced. He truly loves what he does, and I would not be the person I am now without his nutritional guidance and spiritual counsel.
His clarity and vision sets him apart from many others in his field, because he can see what can be easily overlooked, due to his studies and gift of intuition. He is incredibly accommodating, warm, and friendly and will be a visionary in holistic healing, and human consciousness research.
I owe huge debts of gratitude to him, as he has helped me with many health concerns, and personal afflictions. I recommend this man with all my heart. He is phenomenal!

At a recent department meeting Shawn was invited to attend as our key note speaker presenting on the 5 root causes of disease. The presentation was informative and completely engaging to all who were in attendance. Shawn has the ability to explain the importance of healthcare in a very comprehensive and engaging style, he is extremely knowledgeable and passionate on holistic healthcare and education. Staff were engaged with the presentation and came away with an informed understanding of holistic well-being. An example of some of the many positive comments on the information gained from the presentation. “This presentation has definitely been a positive eye-opener for me on the importance of diet, stress management and well-being”.

For a number of years I have been experiencing pains periodically in my right groin, particularly after heavy lifting or climbing a ladder. This was treated successfully after three visits with Shawn Persaud, who diagnosed the problem through muscle testing and found a muscle problem resulting from a blockage of information from my brain to my right side. He is currently keeping an eye on my kidneys due to recent food poisonings.
Because of the successful treatment I received from Shawn Persaud, I invited him to be a guest speaker at the 20th Anniversary of the Caribbean Event in July of this year (2017). His presentation was well delivered and received. The event is held every year as a get together for an evening of enjoyment, meeting new people, etc. in an atmosphere of music, dancing and Caribbean cuisine. It is also a serious fundraising effort to provide scholarships for Caribbean youth. Mr. Persaud was invited, because of the aging population of some of our members, with their health problems. As a result of his excellent presentation on health (BodyTalk) a number of our members have attended his clinic with positive results and feedback.

They felt it was full of pertinent information and well presented to them, the techniques and tips shared were useful in their everyday lives. Thank you and great job!
One response received through email from a participant was “The speaker was terrific and I think we all wished that he could go on for 2 hours at least.”
You are a miracle worker, after only 1 session, this is the most relief I have experienced since the car accident a year ago! Shawn Persaud is excellent in his profession. He really understands the human body and what is required to heal and be the best you!
