My Health: From Rags to Riches

I was chronically ill between the years of 2001 and 2014. I wasn’t able to leave my house often because I had a lot of trouble walking. In 2006, they found pre-cancerous cells in my uterus and I needed a D & C. In 2007, I had pituitary brain surgery with a diagnosis of Cushings Disease. In 2008, I had my gallbladder removed. In 2009, I had an emergency anal surgery (due to A perirectal abscess) and sepsis. The doctor said without surgery (because of the sepsis) I would die. It had gotten pretty bad. I was in so much pain, I was taking around 12 vicodin a day and it didn’t do much for the pain. I had been screaming, whaling and crying in pain non-stop and I rarely cry from pain. I had a high fever, was vomiting and had fecal incontinence. In 2010, I had to have the same surgery again since it had come back in the form of a fistula. And once again, in 2012, I had to have anal surgery again.

I had to go to see a doctor at least once or twice every two weeks. I was on so many medications I can’t even count. I used to take my meds out of a huge box with pills. Medication for physical problems and also for depression, anxiety and insomnia.

My depression had gotten so bad once, I was very close to committing suicide. Fritz saved my life. I wouldn’t be here right now if it weren’t for him. I also often took drug overdoses due to not being able to handle certain triggers. Once I was on such a bad drug and alcohol overdose that I couldn’t even walk to go to the bathroom. Fritz had to walk me were I needed to go. He has been through hell with me.

Why am I telling you all of this? Because I came out the other end of it all. How did I do it? Between all the surgeries and all the medication, I found conventional medicine was not working for me. I did not get better until I weaned off ALL of my medication and changed my diet and my beliefs. I was DESPERATE and sick of being sick.

The below are all the ailments I had and I got rid of them all by myself through alternative natural medicine and through eating better and by using mineralized distilled water to replace tap water. I had to walk away from conventional medicine all together to save my life.

Diabetes (insulin and drug dependent): NUKED
Reoccuring perirectal abscesses necessitating surgeries almost every year: NUKED.
Fibromyalgia: NUKED in two weeks
MRSA (boils) I had for 13 years (usually around 2-6 at a time causing immobility and fevers): NUKED
Arthritis in 3 parts of my body my doctor said was irreversible: NUKED. Arthritis IS reversible!
Painful bowel movements: NUKED.
Constant headaches (at one point I had been taking 18 excedrin per day): NUKED.
Chronic fatigue since my 20’s: NUKED.
Insomnia since childhood: NUKED.
Social anxiety, frequent rage attacks, suicide ideation, prescription drug overdose, and the worst of depression: NUKED.
Urinary incontinence since my mid 20’s: NUKED.
Hypothyroid: NUKED.
Severe heat intolerance: NUKED.

Based on my own experience, NOTHING was “irreversible”. I still have a problem with restless legs because I have yet to deal with some issues of my past that is causing them. I am obese, but I am fine with that. I will let go of the weight when I do! The last time I lost 132 pounds, the weight came off too fast and I went into rebound. Not doing that again! I don’t worry about it. Rather, I celebrate what I have recovered from. I have a brand new outlook on life. I have accomplished a lot and hope to inspire others. The message is you don’t have to suffer. There is hope if you have an open mind and don’t mind taking risks. I am not afraid of making mistakes, I am not afraid of being wrong, and I am not afraid of death. I am more afraid of being dead while still alive. I am getting my life back everyday as I continue my self-work.
