Finally an update and I'm excited to share the good report!!!!! They say that time goes by fast when you're having fun...and that's the truth...so...sorry we haven't been back to post sooner.
Gary shares, "I hit a plateau...then during my "tune-up" a few months ago at the Hansa Center, Dr. J recommended I see a biological dentist...which I did...and I do believe that has helped with my continued healing. I am 75% better overall. In the mornings when I wake, I am a little slow moving around at first, but nothing like a year ago. After a few minutes, and a detox bath from time to time, I'm ready for my day. We've been enjoying life...including three trips to Florida to visit family...and I'm back to working full time."
I am thrilled to see my Gary doing so well! He is a totally different man than he was last January. We've made many great memories with our family and friends this year and look forward to many more years of the same. It's great!!! Although Gary says he is "75% better overall" he has days that are grand...there is no other word to describe those days. Last Sunday was one of those grand days. The day started out early, he preached (filled in) at a local church for a pastor who was away, then out to lunch, arrived home and he got caught up on stuff around the house, plus he took both cars to have them cleaned inside and out.
As for me, I am doing great! All of my symptoms have totally disappeared except, from time to time, I am more tired than I'd like to be...thankfully most days I have good energy...and there are rashes that come and go, however they don't bother me. The most amazing thing is that during my treatment I have not suffered like I did when on abx and I have my own mind. WOW! I'm so thankful!
I have learned a lot since 2003 when LD and Co. first entered my life. The biggest thing I've learned is that it takes--PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS--to combat this horrific disease. I had seen two MDs, two LLMDs and was treated with abx (was sicker than a dog, and at times, sicker than a pack of dogs), got better, only to relapse again and again. Thank God for leading us to the Hansa Center (especially thankful for those He used to enlighten us to alternative options).
From my experience, taking just a pill is not the long term answer for beating LD; the body must be built up to a level of integrity so that it can function optimally, the way God designed it, then it will be able to combat not only LD but anything that comes its way.
The results of-PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS-doing everything I can to give my body (mind and spirit too) what it needs...from supplements and remedies from Dr. J, to healthy food and water, to detoxing, to exercising, to thinking happy/positive thoughts/focusing on truth/reducing stress, to praying and everything in between is paying off.
It does take discipline. There is a saying from the Good Book that reads, "No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
The discipline, the life-style changes...some have been easy, some have been harder...the harvest of right living and peace...make it all worth it!!!
