Exciting News !!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

My health has been extremely bad since I had emergency surgery last January for a severe gynecological hemorrhage. It's been a struggle to walk, move, do normal activities even with all my workouts my strength was getting worse. I could barely speak due to all the cognitive changes going on. It was getting very hard to read, words would jump around changing shapes into unrecognizable fonts. My breathing was becoming labored, I feared death would happen rather quickly if I didn't make changes. I was loosing my will to live being in pain and the severity of the symptoms. The specialists at UCSF did not know what to do with me as numerous other doctors I saw.

I discovered a Dr. that has done extensive testing on my body to see what is wrong with me. Though I have yet to see the tests as they were recently done, she placed me on a nutritional program. Now I am a gluten free vegan, but allowed to eat eggs (so not quite a vegan.) In addition to that she prescribed supplements and took me off my medications for MS.

To My total shock, I feel sooooo Much better. The program involves a different type of cleanse than I have done before and things to improve the immune system. I can definitely tell that I am cleansing off and on. The difference with this program is I am having more good days than I have had in over a year. My husband sees the difference in me. My walking and balance is improving along with my speed of walking and distance. . . My skin is glowing. I finally have hope that things are improving on the right track. My cognitive abilities have improved dramatically. I was so frightened as I could barely speak, it was always with a slur, I was loosing the ability to read and write. The letters would jump around and change in to unknown fonts, scrambled by my brain. It was hard to understand what people were saying. The MD's gave up on me.

Now my thoughts are clearing up and I am getting well.

    That is so awesome! I wish others would learn more about a plant based diet to treat many ailments. I have a friend with MS and he eats McDonalds twice a day and thinks that is why he is losing weight.

    Wheat has been genetically altered and is the main cause of many ailments. Good for you finding the right person to help you. As soon as I can pull myself together I will eliminate wheat. It's in almost everything.
