  • I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back!

    “I am so thankful to you this Thanksgiving weekend for giving me my health and my life back! Good news- I am still good and not reacting to fluorescent lights anymore. Also I seem to be reacting to chemicals less than before. I have lost that totally grounded feeling, but no more panic attacks and I can work all day without any neurological symptoms. I have had no neuro symptoms at all since I had the [Chiren] treatment in September. This is so amazing!!! I can even drink coffee and wine in small amounts now. Yeah! But have to stick to the gluten free/dairy free diet because I now get asthma symptoms when I eat anything that has gluten or dairy in it. Also my stomach can’t handle dairy any more since I’ve been off it so long. So I can’t put milk in my coffee – oh well. Had a few no-nos yesterday for the holiday and am feeling it in my chest today. Also itching- ears, eyes and skin on my face. Weird- it’s almost like I get when I am exposed to a cat. The best thing is that I am not getting any neurological symptoms anymore and I feel totally normal. I can handle a little respiratory reaction every now and then and I have my inhaler if I get into any breathing trouble. So far it has been mild and just annoying. My whole family is now gluten free and everyone is doing great! No one has been sick for the last 6 months. : ) My son, off gluten, is amazing. He just brought home a report card of straight A’s and has no more twitching or tics. *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
