Patient's Own Testimony In the Name of God In Farvardin 1387 (March 2008) I got flu. After several referrals to a physician and following prescribed medications, not only did I not recover, but also I was immensely troubled with 7kg swelling on my face and feet which appeared very suddenly. After undertaking Lab tests in my hometown which unfortunately resulted in no diagnosis, I went to Tehran (capital city) for further analysis; and severe proteinuria was detected. I was hospitalized in Tehran for more investigations and a kidney biopsy. After these procedures my doctor prescribed a high dosage of Prednisolone (75 mg/day). After consumption of this medication gradually my feet edema was reduced and as my doctor had told me, my face became swollen to such an extent that none of my friends and rela- tives could recognize me. After a while as a result of drug consumption my hearing, vision and physical energy considerably diminished and I was feeling more nervous day by day. Cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure increased above normal levels and I had to use medication to get these under control. This accompanied by a strict dietary regimen; because protein (in meals) was like a poison for me and sugary meals would affect my blood sugar. I really didn't know what type of food I could eat with peace of mind?! On top of everything, I also got amnesia and in summary I got really down and disappointed. I saw the end of the world indeed. Because of my illness and amnesia I missed a whole semester of my studies which I was so determined to continue at the university. With such a low spirit, I didn't know how to move forward with dialysis. Meanwhile a close friend of mine (to whom I would like to submit my sincere gratitude and to her dear fam- ily), suggested Faradarmani as an Iranian complementary medicine. I started my therapy with my Faratherapists; her sister and her sister's husband. At first, I didn't have any knowledge about Faradarmani, but because it was the only available therapy free of charge, I regularly continued this therapy. Amazingly in a short period of time, my test results improved and upon my first test result (after Faradarmani treatment) 15 mg of Prednisolone dosage was reduced. Also other medi- cations were gradually reduced and after 7 months I completely regained my health; my amnesia was cured and I resumed my studies at the university and graduated with high grades. Currently I, my husband and my 9 year old son (the family whom I love so much and who have stayed loyal and devoted companions to me), continue taking our Faradarmani courses/classes with a lot of enthusiasm and determination. We have also become Faratherapists to be able to genuinely help humanity and patients who are interested in using this treatment method and in benefitting from circles of Divine Merci. With wishes of heath and well being for all patients

Why haven't I ovulated? There are only a few days each cycle when a woman can get pregnant, the days leading up to and the day of ovulation1. The "fertile window" will typically be 6 days, but when these fertile days occur and how many there are will vary from woman to woman and cycle to cycle. In some cycles, ovulation may not happen at all. This article explains some of the reasons why this may occur and how common it is.
