Growing up and into adulthood I lived as most Americans. Eating sugar, fried foods and pretty much whatever tasted good, didn’t matter what was in it. I used every chemical I could to clean my house; and at one time I owned a home cleaning business. Chemicals made everything easier…. “I thought”. I also loved wearing perfume, using fabric softener and air fresheners. I was always tired, but justified…. “I thought”. I worked three jobs, lived on a farm, and had two children and a husband, who wouldn’t be tired? Then one cold January morning in 1994 I woke up and had no voice. I thought I must have laryngitis and stayed home from work a few days. I found I wasn’t getting any better so I returned to work. I was a waitress at the time and had to whisper to my customers. As time went on my health was noticeably declining, I started my long and frightening journey into the allopathic world. I was poked and prodded, one Doctor told me he was going to numb my throat with a spray and run a camera down my throat to see what the problem was, by that time I couldn’t even whisper so I wrote that the spray would make me worse, he turned to his nurse and said where did you find this one at? To which she replied I didn’t, she found us! He sprayed me anyway; the result was such intense release on any and all fluids in my face that I thought I was drowning. My eyes ran as though I was sobbing, my nose was a steady stream; even the saliva in my mouth and mucus in my throat was increased to the extent of choking. The doctor was disgusted and told me to leave … I was fine. I became weaker and weaker, dropping weight until I weighed only 90 lbs. My hair was falling out, my skin was cracked and looked burned, and I felt like my insides were on fire. At the end of February I ended up in the emergency room. I needed help walking, still unable to talk; I looked like I had already died. The doctor told my husband after many hours and tests to take me home there was nothing they could do for me, that it wasn’t physical but probably mental. My husband believed him.
( we have since divorced) We lived at the top of a hill and had a long lane, it had snowed so hard that day that we had to leave the car at the bottom and walk up, I was so weak that I remember laying down 4 times in the snow as I made my way to the house looking up at the sky thinking I wouldn’t see many more days. My dad was seeing a chiropractor at that time and shared with him what was happening to me. The doctor suggested that I see an associate of his , he was a chiropractor but also a Holistic Doctor and was known to help people with things other doctors had failed at. He set up an appointment for me himself for the next morning. For the first time since my nightmare started I had hope. The Doctor examined me and explained what was going on, my food and my environment were poisoning me. SOMEONE KNEW WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME!!! My body was unable to get rid of the toxins that most people can, my body was taxed to the max. My adrenals were depleted, my organs were in distress, and my skin WAS burned. I was tested on the Asyra (bioenergetic testing) the predecessor of the Qest4. He gave me many, many supplements to take, and although it became a years long odyssey, within hours of my first treatment I was able to speak, weakly but I could talk! My life changed from that day on. My diet had to be pure, my air had to be pure, I couldn’t go anywhere in the public for two years, when I went to his office they put me in a special room. If I came into contact with someone wearing perfume or fabric softener on their clothes or other chemicals, some I couldn’t smell or identify, but my body could, I immediately was unable to talk, and I felt as though my lights had been dimmed. Holistic Medicine saved my life PERIOD. Without it I would not be here today. My journey will never end. I am much stronger, I can go to a store and I can attend church, but I still can’t be in certain environments without feeling the effects. I do a cleansing detox on a regular basis. My passion became about helping others holistically. To teach them the effects of common products we think are safe, and to show them the healthy alternatives. To share the excitement of using herbs and essential oils to maintain health and keep them in balance. We only get one body and our health can be gone overnight, it’s our right and our obligation to ourselves and the ones we love to take care of it. I’m here to help. Thank God.
