Founder of The Alternative Healthcare - Melissa Toleman
About the Founder
For the past 13 years, Melissa’s passion has been in the natural therapies and alternative healthcare to improve health and working with energy. Though passion is nothing without belief and faith! Three years ago her belief and faith were put to the test!
In April 2013, her 9-year-old son, Louie, was diagnosed with a long term deteriorating disease called Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. According to his doctors, the outlook was bleak. Within 3 months he had 27 swollen and painful joints affected with arthritis. He was completely disabled, some days Louie was unable to get out of bed. Louie was consuming an obscene amount of medication with no prospects of getting better. Desperate times called for desperate measures...
It was then that Melissa tried an alternative route. Understanding that if the body managed to get itself into this situation it stands to reason that it can get itself out of it. The key was finding out how. She took him to an Ayurvedic hospital in India and this was where things began to turn around. Within 4 months of that journey Louie became 100% well! He has never had a symptom to this day, as now Louie understands his body. Louie has been educated on what his body needs to stay arthritis free.
That was 3 years ago and since then Melissa has studied Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Institute in Croydon. With all she knows now, Melissa is so confident this can help a multitude of different illnesses. Melissa feels more people should know it is possible to heal from such disorders and aims to give more options to those who feel they have none. When the outlook seems bleak, dig deep and have faith. There is always a solution. You just need to find it. Melissa believes with all her heart, this is the answer and henceforth The Alternative Healthcare was created. The centre incorporates everything that helped her son get better, including diet, treatments, yoga, meditation and a variety of other natural therapies. The only difference is it is more accessible than travelling to the other side of the world and is therefore considerably more convenient and most cost effective!

Louie made the video below, explaining his story from a 9-year-olds perspective. Three years on and Louie is a fantastically healthy 13-year-old child enjoying all sports and martial arts. He no longer takes any medication, any herbs or follows a diet, his body is back in balance and therefore requires nothing more than an understanding of his body to stay healthy. Louie is an inspiration to us all!
