FIRST Choice Medicine

by Dr. Rev. Wanona Wellspring Ceisel, DN

Doctor of Naprapathy, Medical Intuitive

 

The First Medicine you need is Encouragement.

 

“I need somebody to listen to MY story.”

I listen while patients tell their story.  The first medicine that I give them, no matter what the signs or symptoms, is encouragement.  I encourage them to have trust in that their body will heal itself. Our bodies have the ability to heal, and our treatment is to help reconnect the patient and their inward capabilities; thought, imagination, emotional response, and gratitude.

 

TIGER

 

Thought

Imagination

Gratitude

Emotional

Response

 

This is the credo of the Spring Creek Holistic Center and the personal credo for everyone.   Words are powerful and handy helpers in the healing process.  Words of encouragement allow the true inner strength to reveal itself and the Tiger emerges.  Strong and yet sentient, the Tiger is sensitive to its surroundings and can sense the emotion of creatures nearby by their scent; chemoreceptors in the brain trigger hormonal responses when stimulated by certain scents.

 

The feeling that accompanies the hormonal response will either help the Tiger survive, or propagate to support the species.  Human beings are not sure what to do with their hormonal responses when the need to do either no longer exists.

 

Keeping healthy requires daily discipline to eat regular healthy meals and healthy snacks and get acquainted to the needs of their body.  Body aches and pains are nature’s way of communicating to us that something may be wrong.  The body begins to communicate to various parts to maintain a homeostatic internal environment.  Chemical messengers carry signals and we feel something with our muscles and skin, and even in the joints.

 

We eventually regain control and balance is restored within us, or so it would seem on the outside.  Homeostasis is not a static event but a series of checks and balances that employ when certain chemicals are too high or too low, our temperature is too high or too low, or we are too cold, or too hot.  Living at either extreme is uncomfortable, so we find a middle ground that is comfortable.  That develops our thermostat and the body has a job to do that will last the rest of its life.  Until we get sick and it gets out of balance again, and the cycle begins.

 

Originally our bodies were made healthy and whole.  Sometimes we are born with nutritional deficiencies or they may have developed later but in either case, the treatment begins the same way; with encouragement.

 

The TIGER approach to health is holistically based and supported by years of personal experience.  It speaks to the person without regard to religious affiliation or spiritual gender.  We as human beings are capable of thought, imagination, gratitude and emotional response.  It supports the homeopathic viewpoint that healing comes not only from the head down, but also “the inside out.”

 

The idea appears as a thought, and our imagination begins to go to work.  We can better appreciate where we are, and remember the good that exists in our lives creating a sense of gratitude; grateful for knowing that your body can heal, and that emotions can be part of the healing process.  Our emotional response to our environment is a big clue of our immune and health status.

 

The Living Food Lifestyle was developed used similar ideas in developing our program guidelines.  When learning to change your eating habits it is important that you make your personal health your first choice.  Every choice after that is based upon your desire to heal your chronic symptoms and regain optimal health.  The First Step is not only to change your lifestyle but agreeing to take the first step.  First Medicine is here to help you accomplish your goals for a healthy life.

Plants really do make us feel better

When we bought our mini-farm in 2010 I found a great place to learn about plants through the Chicago Botanic Garden.  The Master Gardener Program is offered through the University of Illinois Extension Office, and each county has its own division.  I attended a once a week seminar from January until March in 2011 and volunteered my 60 hours time at the Chicago Botanic Gardens between Evening Island and the Green Youth Farm. I felt that the terrain of the Evening Island was very similar to our land; water features, grasses, fields, shrubs and bulbs.  The CBG rents land in several places and hire inner city children to work four hours a day at minimum wage to teach them organic gardening, how to harvest the vegetables, and sell them, and also how to prepare yummy meals.

During an annual conference, CBG brought in many speakers to tell us about some of the recent projects around how plants influence our lives.  In an apartment complex in Chicago, for instance, more people would gather around the trees growing on the grounds. Children who lived just a couple of miles from Lake Michigan had never even been to the lake. Even photographs or prints with scenes of nature have a profound affect on office buildings, especially where there is no view to the outside world as in a basement or completely bricked siding. In Britain a study of children who spent time in nature saw increased math and reading skills.  Besides calming our mood when we are stressed, breathing oxygen rich air that plants provide can have many benefits to our health and sense of well being.

Bach Flower Remedies were created while Dr. Bach noticed how the mood of patients changed when they were exposed to the floral fragrance molecules in a garden setting.  Peppermint Essential Oil was used in scientific research for its ability to improve athletic performance and found to be very effective.  A 2014 study that was reported in the Journal of Phytomedicine, and in 2013 in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Medicine both stated the benefits of ingesting just a few drops of Peppermint oil in water before exercise enhances the athletic performance by increasing oxygen flow as the components in peppermint oil relax the smoothe muscles of the body.  What is more is it also reduces lactate levels, which contributes to soreness after exercise.

Basil plants emit a wonderful aroma that repels mosquitos; they don’t like it one bit.  The essential oil of the Basil plant benefits humans, however, including anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and high in anti-oxidants.  Basil is the King of plants. Most savory herbs like Basil, Thyme, Oregano, black pepper and Clove, to name just a few smell wonderful when we use them in cooking, and add delicious flavors to our food.  They are the primary medicinal herbs that many cultures use for health benefits like Basil. As a long time herbalist, I would rather use a natural herb or essential oil to get my vitamins and healthy nutritional intake compared to supplementing with pills.

Growing herbs at home can be very satisfying and picking your own fresh herbs for the kitchen is the best way to add flavor to your home cooked meals.  Check out the publication from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on “Savory Herbs: Culture and Use.”  A new concept among Master Gardeners is the Edible Garden.  Grow flowers along with savory herb plants, and vegetables and within this “companion” garden comes many benefits.  Herbs ward off certain insects and disease and deter predators that might otherwise invade your vegetable garden.  Plus the aromas when you walk through your garden will add to the beauty and charm of your experience.  I have Idaho Blue Tansy growing near my wooden bench swing, along with other flowers and trees.  It is a beautiful cluster of yellow flowers that sends a relaxing aroma into the air when I am out at my swing relaxing with my favorite book and repels mosquitos, too!

Rodale’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs 1987 Rodale Press was ...

Idaho Blue Tansy stands very tall with yellow flower clusters on top. Very fragrant and the essential oil has a blue color; hence the name.

While we distill Tansy and make a beautiful essential oil from the plant, we can benefit from its light fragrance in the garden by just crushing some leaves between the fingers and applying it on the skin.  Have you ever taken the Rosemary leaves and crushed them to enjoy their fragrance?  I love when restaurants plant a barrel full of savory herbs out front for their visitors to enjoy!  A little rosemary, some basil, perhaps a thyme or parsley!  Wow, my word is complete!

I also think growing the flowers and herbs in a vertical garden right outside your back door is the absolute best way to let nature help improve our mental and physical well being.  There are lots of designs, some made of wood and others made from cinder blocks, that are inexpensive and easy to make.  I have a wooden one that I fastened to the wall on the back of my home.  There are no windows there and I even added a water collector to the design.  The planters can be removed and replaced each year with varieties that you either plant every year, or bring in to the green house and keep enjoying during winter.  My basil is a prime example; I love love love pesto.  I make up a batch and put it in ice cube trays with a silicone bottom and freeze.  Pop them out and place into a freezer bag and add a few to dishes for the wonderful basil flavor that is very fresh and delicious.

Water is an important feature to the outside garden that helps add a unique quality of adding oxygen and negative ions from a bubbler into the air for improved mental health and relaxation.  When water explodes over the surface and on rocks it releases particles we call negative ions.  These help lift our mood because we inhale them easily.  Plants natural emit negative ions especially on a warm sunny day through their process of phytosynthesis; take a walk in nature and along babbling brooks or create your own water feature in your garden to enjoy the benefits of negative ion therapy.

Being close to nature also keeps us grounded. What does this mean for our health? Being grounded means we are not “flighty” and we stick close to the moment in our experience with life and living. I use a grounding technique, Grounding essential oil, and I enjoy fresh air daily to help me stay grounded.

Touching the earth is the absolute best way to get grounded.  Negatively charged particles that are emitted from the ground are in essence blending and neutralizing the excess particles floating around in our body, those pesky free radicals, and bringing our body back into balance in our internal electrical field. Touching the earth means to go barefoot occasionally on either ground, or very old concrete and maybe asphalt, but especially a beautiful yard of green grass.  What is even more impressive is these free electrons that boost our health are, well, free!

Have a wonderful blessed day!

Mind Body Medicine

From a very early age I saw evidence that the body reacted to the emotions and our thoughts could dictate our state of health, or disease.  I saw it first hand with my mother who had a mental illness that went misdiagnosed for decades.  I lived in a dysfunctional household where she would be fine and smiling one day, and the next day she would be a terror.  I did NOT want to live in that family with that household, but I knew there was absolutely no way to leave there; I was eight years old.

So when Deepak explains the science that has developed around Mind Body Medicine and how our bodies react to our thoughts and experiences I am in total agreement.  Here is what so called Western Medicine has decided to ignore; that our body reacts in a chemical way to our surroundings.  We understand very little really about what to do with this fact.

Trauma is an extreme example, and one that I would like to address because I think it is an experience that we have all been faced with at one time or another.  I understand how the pain nerve fibers react from an automobile accident even when there are no broken bones, torn skin or loss of limb.  But why do the pain fibers continue to fire when we seem to be fully recovered?  And what about the trauma of someone who angers you or scares you? How does our body process these emotional upsets that in turn signal chemical changes in our bodies?  I want to know how we can deal with all types of trauma, and I want to know in what ways can we get back to normal?

I think touch is the answer.  As a health practitioner and bodyworker I see patients who are in pain from no particular incident other than they “moved the wrong way” and now they are in pain.  I also see patients who went the normal route of medication for pain and muscle tension, a practice that is far too prevalent in the emergency room, and went to physical therapy and were told they would never be their old self again.  I treated that same patient with tender care, evaluating where the tension was affecting their body, the musculoskeletal system, and more importantly their emotions.  How is it that after a year of the “standard of care” they made no recovery, but with my skilled hands and gentle heart, they were able to return to their “pre-accident” state within six weeks?

When we think of Mind Body Medicine, there is another component that is not ever discussed; the healing quality of touch from another.  In the book, Psychology of Yoga, they discuss how simple touch can have many physiological benefits as well as emotional benefits.  A young woman with seizures that are not well controlled with medication saw dramatic results in just a few weeks of gentle massage. I saw a young child who having been born addicted to heroine was finally able to relax spastic muscles after just a few minutes of CranioSacral Still Point.

If we are to speak of Mind Body Medicine, then we should also include in this discussion the idea that energy is also shared between people especially if the intent is to share compassion and love for another human being.  I think there is agreement among providers that trauma victims lose sight of their self.  Being able to reconnect to their true self is difficult, but when we experience the touch of another compassionate soul there can be a shift.  Healing Touch has been taught to nurses and other bodyworkers as a non-invasive modality to help bring energy back to the body, mind and spirit of anyone willing to receive.

Trauma-sensitive yoga therapy is very aware of the disconnection between the body and the mind and uses yoga postures to guide the individual back into the awareness state of the body; to speak to the Inner Physician that Dr. Upledger identifies when working with the body. The dialogue between the tissues and the subconscious mind happens between the individual and their inner self to reconnect their body and their mind in a more healthy relationship.

Being consciously aware of our body is the first step to enlightenment.  How many of us are aware? Our jobs seem to be so much more important than our bodies and we neglect the basic needs like drinking water, exercise or relaxation. That is how our American society is expected to act; do your job and your day is about getting the work done and who cares about what your body needs.  A difficult dance, I admit, but it is a sad state of affair.  I once was fired from a job because the owner caught me reading a book on Grieving that I used to keep me calm after my mother died.  He did not ask me what I was reading or what it was for, just that I was taking time at my desk to read something not work related.  That was really dumb and stupid on his part and I was happy to leave.  I never went back to another “job” after that and have remained self-employed; thank God.

Listen to the video with Deepak Chopra and the scientific search for Body Mind Medicine:

 

My own idea about trauma goes deeper than most.  I have experienced many life-altering traumatic experiences; drowning, automobile crash, loss of loved one, emotional trauma, and even disease which can also be traumatic. I think we have forgotten or may not even be aware of how connected our thoughts are to our body and how powerful they can be if we use them as the vehicle to change the chemical process that our body undergoes; change your thought and change your life. Not really hard to understand for some, but very foreign to many.

In What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses, Daniel Chamovitz talks about the chemical messengers in plants that help it thrive and survive.  Even messengers that are spread from plant to plant through space, they emit chemicals that warn other plants of predators making them less appealing.  We all know how wonderful a green salad can be, but did you also know that the anti-oxidant properties are enhanced when you tear the lettuce?  This is the plant’s automatic healing process; to emit chemicals to begin the wound repair and thanks to them we can eat the anti-oxidants they produce to help our own bodies heal.

When I first got into Mind Body Medicine as a massage therapist and nutritionist, I used hair analysis.  I could not work with a lab back then, and the hair is really accurate in showing how our bodies are using the food we eat or reacting to the drugs we take.  Hair has become a gold standard in determining if someone is a drug user; it is registered and stored in the hair shaft and stays there until you cut it off.  We used the first inch from the scalp as a sample for the lab to test.  The lab I worked with would send me back a report on the metabolic markers so that I could then determine what imbalances in their diet needed to be corrected.  It was the only lab that would also tell me their metabolic type: slow, mixed, or fast.  I think this is similar to the Dosha type in Ayurvedic Medicine: Vata, Pita, or Kapha.  Our goal in either case is always to locate the cause of the imbalance, treat it temporarily to reduce symptoms, but inevitably to find the missing link, remove the underlying cause, and regain our health.

Chronic Infection and Inflammation

Hello and Happy New Year for 2016 from Doc Wah!

Most of my friends don’t really know me.  I am a woman with many talents and lots of complications in my life.  I live two hours from the clinic that I work in one day a week.  My income was decreased by two thirds when we bought this small plot of land and most days I am in construction mode.  I would love to play guitar and sing songs, paint and create crafts, and garden, but most days I have work to do on the house and there is absolutely no time for what I want to do that really makes me happy.  I feel some days that I am not being creative and it makes me crazy!

My friends also do not know that I struggle on a daily basis with chronic inflammation that came upon me several, make that many years ago.  I think it may have been when I had a raw fish salad back in 1994, but I was sick a few years before that.  I would wake up with a fever and congestion, take a long brisk walk after dropping my daughter off for vocal lessons, and I would feel better.  Exercise increases DHEA production from the adrenal glands and reduces inflammation.  I did not know that back then, but I knew I felt better, and I love to walk.

I moved to Chicago to the suburbs and after a long walk/run had a muscle spasm that developed into a trigger point that was relentless.  I could not even walk, and definitely no running.  The weight increased and very rapidly; I gained 30 pounds that year.

I enrolled in college to earn my doctorate, but I went to a gym and the water was contaminated; I got the worst ear infection of my life.  I have never been in that much pain.  Thank goodness the ENT doctor (Eye, Ear Nose, Throat) gave me a natural remedy; 1/2 apple cider vinegar (that balances pH) and 1/2 rubbing alcohol (that evaporates the ACV).  Then I follow with garlic oil.

When I got married in 1969 I was a virgin.  Unfortunately, my husband was not.  He was when we met, but he had an affair when he went away for part of a year for his military stint.  He gave me Candida.  I was so sick!  I gained weight, was a total bitch, and had reoccurring vaginal infections; for years.  After 20 years, and three failed relationships, two ending in divorce, I discovered that I had Candida infection.  I took myself off all sugar for two years; not even fruit.  I lost 20 pounds.  Then I took myself off gluten, and lost another 20 pounds!  I did not know I had that much weight on me, but I did!  Man, I felt myself again for the first time since high school!  How can someone survive such a horrific infection for 20 years, and still manage to have four healthy children and still function in life?  Sometimes I amaze even myself!

I tested myself when I was in college for my doctorate because the tests were reduced for students.  The stool analysis showed that I had zero acidophilus in my colon. And I had a strep infection.  But when I called the Infectious Disease Control department at a local hospital they laughed at me!  They said that that type of strep only infected neonatal; new babies!  No way could I have this infection.  Seriously?  And of course, I did not go see a doctor because I thought they would laugh at me, too.  So I struggled and kept trying natural remedies for many more years than I care to recount.

Then I discovered the Raw Living Lifestyle.  A miracle happened!  I expelled a worm that was about 10 inches long.  I have photos.  The digestive tract of this opaque worm was green.  I had been taking a shot of wheat grass three times a day for several days when I started the Raw Fast, and using a catheter for my water enemas.  He did NOT like the wheat grass, but I must have dislodged him with the catheter from my descending colon.  I felt much better and lost an amazing 35 pounds!  That lasted for a couple of years.

Every time I would feel cloudy, sluggish and weak, I would do the raw detox again and feel better.  It doesn’t work that way anymore.  More stuff is going on and I don’t know what.

My mother tried to commit suicide not once, but twice.  Once she took sleeping pills and a large glass of vodka.  They pumped her stomach and put her in a psych ward for 6 weeks.  She quit smoking but when she got out, Dad got her started again.  Dumb. The next time she tried to slit her wrists.  She did it the wrong way and just bleed a lot, but once again she was committed.  This time she did not start smoking again, but the damage was done.  Turned out she had a chronic infection in her lungs; her doctor called it Walking Pneumonia.  Enough to make her tired, listless and feel hopeless and resulted in the suicide attempt.  I am afraid that if I cannot get rid of this chronic infection I may try to “off” myself; I know I have had suicidal thoughts in the past. Like the time my daughter yelled at me for no apparent reason; I just wanted to throw myself in front of the next semi that drove down my street.  Whoa, put the brakes on! Nobody, not even my daughter, is worth losing my life over!  What an idiot!

I had a major major car wreck a long time ago. I had a head laceration and my whole spine was screwed up for years, and I still suffer from neck and low back disc bulges and some nerve pain and nerve weakness.  Then I had two more nearly back to back car wrecks; thank goodness they happened after I got my doctorate.  I remember the memory loss after my first major car wreck, but these last two also involved head injuries and I read that emotional problems can follow closed head injuries.  That was a big help to me, seriously.  I started to look at me in a whole new light.

I just want my friends to treat me normal, but the problem is I don’t have many friends.  Not for lack of trying.  Most people are so caught up in their own lives, their own relationships, that being my friend is the least of their worries.  This is how my mind works; no matter what I do to try to gain their trust they just see me as some complicated person that cannot relate to them.  I can’t make them like me; I just try to be myself and maybe that is wrong.  If someone has the answer, please tell me.

I read books on spirituality and philosophy for years.  I was not at all interested in anything fiction during that time.  I saw lots of clients and began to see a correlation between their thoughts and the areas of pain they were experiencing.  I published my findings called “The Psychology of Health; or Think Yourself Well.”  I gave public talks on it and shared my research.  I submitted my thesis and got my Masters in Divinity for my Ordained Minister license.  Being an ordained minister really started when I started talking to Jesus when I was very young.  Yes, I am a psychic.  Most of my friends, family and patients have absolutely no idea who I really am.  I can imagine what people are thinking; not just about me, but about themselves and their own situation.  People who have listened to me are actually amazed when I give them sincere insights into their thoughts; I may have even saved lives!  It even shocked me when the basic facts revealed themselves to me, but not to them.

My guides and teachers are Ascended Masters; Jesus, Kuthumi, and St. Germaine.  They call the work that we do, Atomic Transformation.  I channeled Jesus and he was the best friend.  He would take me to Jerusalem; we would wear those white cotton robes (Moroccan Gandora) and sandals, of course.  We would sit together on a wooden bench in a room with a dirt floor and adobe walls.  He would teach me and he really reached me.  One day he shared with me this truth; The Golden Rule.  You will be amazed to know that the wording is incorrect.  He took my hands and looked me in the eyes and said: “Love you as I have loved you, then love others.”  He did not say only love people who are white, black, or brown; or only love straight people.  He definitely did not say to make fun of people who are not like you.

How do you do that?  How can I love myself the way Jesus loves me?  Wow, that is a tall order, right?  But I really do want to love everyone like Jesus does; unconditionally.  My favorite philosopher is Gurdjieff.  He is the one who coined the phrase, The WORK; not that new age lady, sorry.  According to the WORK being yourself is a moment by moment experience; no matter what ever else happens to you in that moment.  Loving unconditionally is also about loving not only yourself, but others; and acceptance without judgement.  Aye, that can be the rub, eh?  Another lesson in the WORK involves not getting attached to the “story.” Such as the memory of a past event that causes us pain or guilt.  Memories are stories and not really true anymore.  We remember them and no one else does; nor do they care.  But we have to change the memory, the story, if we want to overcome the pain or guilt.  It’s also a technique I learned in counseling.  It really works, too.

My friends also do not know that I started out in counseling.  I loved the idea and even though I began taking courses on counseling I also found massage and went in that direction for most of my adult life.  But I never let go of being a counselor, so after I became an Ordained Minister I kept going and took Chaplain classes with Unity.  I consider myself a metaphysician, because to call myself a Christian is not really accurate.  The red letter portions of the bible are all that I ever related to, especially since I could actually speak to Jesus so I had the inside scoop, so to speak.  He actually likes to be called “J” according to the Course of Miracles, which he orchestrated.  I have never been to a regular meeting, because I can not really get it.  I like simple.

So, today I have different goals.  I think goals are like a book; first you make an outline.  Then you pick a starting point.  What can I do first? If I want something to happen I work backwards to decide what that first step has to be.  Or like making a dish; what is the first step? Do I have all the ingredients? Maybe that is my first step; to go purchase the ingredients that I need.  I can make a wonderful pie or casserole; not so much at writing books by myself.  But an article, definitely; or a speech.

I am going to get blood test results in a few days and I will know what is showing up that could be causing the inflammation; I hired an Internal Medicine doctor, finally.  I will let you know how things are going.  I definitely want to get my energy back so I can exercise again; I have all that weight to lose again.  If it wasn’t for all the knowledge I have about herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies, I would probably have been given prescription drugs to take.  But my new doctor is very happy with the regimen that I have made for myself and agrees that I will be okay if I just continue with my arsenal of natural supplements.  He also agrees that in the United States doctors really do not know much about parasites and that sort of infection like they do in the Asian regions of the world where parasites are a lot more prevalent and doctors who live there see this sort of infection on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, I can meditate, keep eating healthy food, fruit, and juice, and chicken soup of course.  I love my ginger tea! So, off to bed with me to get some rest.  Take care and stay tuned.

Yours in Health Naturally,

Doc Wah

 

Update on my Health Status:

Well, the blood tests are normal.  And the doctor I thought was going to be a team player just dismissed me.  I explained that I had shortness of breath when exercising, but he ordered a cardio stress test and ECHO of my heart, and dismissed the breathing problem.  He basically told me not to come see him anymore; he is done with me.

When I get stumped, and listen, I am really stumped, I go back to my own understanding of the body and I ask myself, “What would you give a patient who told you this?”  I said I felt my chest was becoming part of the problem; is this exercise induced asthma or is it pneumonia?  That made the decision for me; I will treat myself for an Upper Respiratory Infection.

When we look at the lungs they are situated in the chest.  We can access them by breathing in diffused essential oils, so I went to my Essential Oil Resource Guide and found several ‘formulas’ that I added to my diffuser.  I did this every night for a week.

I looked up Bach Flower remedies and using a pendulum, I picked out 4 very good flower essences;  add two drops each to a brown glass dropper bottle, fill mostly with pure water, and just a tablespoon of Vodka for purification.  Take this by mouth several times a day.

Herbs for the immune system are also antibiotic in nature, so I found a perfect blend of Echinacea, Goldenseal, Cayenne Pepper and Burdock.  This will cleanse the lungs, act to kill any germs without harming the host (Me!) and assist with healing; Burdock is that pesky wild plant that puts out nasty burrs that we destroy from our gardens.

I also am drinking lemon water with Lime essential oil added to help alkaline my blood, which will help boost my immune system.

And I have recently switched to a ketogenic diet.  That is a discussion for another day, but to summarize I will get my energy from fats, not glucose and adding NAC or N-acetylcysteine will add energy, too.

Lastly, I am going to do an Asthma Regimen that I have used for a lot of patients: Natural D-Hist from Orthomolecular.  This product is wonderful for upper respiratory conditions, but the protocol must be adhered to for nearly 3 months to actually “clean” the lungs.

Another condition that just started happening is neuralgia.  I have a weird thing going on where my right side gets hot and burns; the nerves are somehow being affected by the muscle tension in my low back.  But it is also happening in my right shoulder and arm, and on occasion I will get both arms numb down into the elbow.  Twice I have been asked if I have Lyme’s Disease, and I am very adamant that I do not have any disease. All of this came from the infection from the strange parasitic worm and all the toxins that were bombarding my body for many years.  I am not ruling out Lyme’s Disease, of course, but I have no one to turn to for that kind of testing.

There are clinics I have found who could offer help, but I am being told I have to fork over $2,000 to $3,000 dollars just to see the doctor.  That is for the office visit and lab tests, but not for any treatments.  I am looking for a clinic who will administer blood doping; take my blood and inject pure oxygen, then put it back into my body.  Oxygen will help kill some of the bugs that will not show up on test.  Also, the doctor visits and possibly the tests may be covered by my insurance, but Oxygen or Ozone doping are not.  I am looking for an alternative to this procedure; something I can do at home, but it appears that I have to have a doctor just to prescribe it, and I am unsure if I can get one to cooperate.

What is my next step? I am doing all that I can humanly do to help my condition.  I saw my Naprapath and his manipulation of my tissues helps for about half a day.  Even now as I am sitting at the computer to write, my right side is on fire and I feel tired.

I am not sure if anyone has ever dealt with any of these symptoms, or that you would even take the time to read my blog, but I am very open to suggestions.  The world is vast, but it seems so foreign to someone like me who just wants to feel better and get healthy.

Yours in Health, Natural as Possible!
