Wow, indeed! What an amazing and encouraging testimony regarding the wonderful improvements taking place for Lisa. We are so excited and thrilled to get this wonderful report from you about
Lisa. You said, "Although I now know , these two doctors can back up all of their practice with scientific research, I could actually now care less about
it. I am just happy they can get her better and have been. I say this because in our situation, We saw over 30 regular doctors, including lyme specialists, neurologists, rheumatologists, orthapedics, you name it we saw them. And to tell you the truth, this is the first time I met 2 doctors, who really care, and take in to consideration, all of what my wife says, as evedience, not just throw it to the side. Listen to the patient. I am confident that without our trip here, we would be in a state that no one could recover from."
If you've read my story, you'd see that I have expressed the exact sentiments you posted here. Like the blind man in the Bible who, after Jesus healed him, said, "The one thing I know, I was once blind, but now I see". I have no way to explain the science behind biological medicine, my brain shrunk down to the size of a pea when got lyme disease
so there's no way for me to explain it to other people. Seriously, I'm just not that smart, but like the blind man in the Bible, I can say, "The one thing I know, I was once SICK, and now I am so much better!". No, I'm not 100% healed--but nothing is impossible with God. I do know that for three days this week I have been working physically hard, sweating in over 100 degree heat, and I still wake up in the mornings roaring and ready to go. Some days I don't feel that way, I admit it, but most days I do.
Prior to getting biological treatment at the Hansa Center I was basically dying. I could hardly do mental work in my office more than two hours a week. But now, I can work almost everyday for 8 hours or more. There just isn't enough time in the day for me to get all the work done that I need to do. But thank God I can do it now, whereas, last December all I could do is pray for death. I was so sick back in June I'd lost 75 pounds in six months. My doctors were clueless. My GI doctor suggested I go to the hospital for a feeding tube. I could write a book about
the ignorant ducks I've been to who rolled their eyes every time they'd see me in their office. It's just amazing how this biological medicine works. I know people want to know the science behind it, and rightfully so. Dr. Jernigan is writing books and articles as fast as he can to get this scientific evidence out there. He wants it out there as he believes it's something people should know about
, but there's only so many hours in the day for him to do everything he wants to do.
When he's out training other doctors who want to learn his protocol, or when he's away writing books and articles or giving speeches among his peers, his patients get upset with him because he isn't there to treat them. He's doing the best he can do with the limited time that he has each day. The good news is, his wonderful associate doctor, Dr. Jowdy is an awesome doctor who has been trained by Dr. Jernigan and he's constantly in contact with him, consulting with him about
every patient that comes to the center, even when he's not in the office. I have said this before and I'll say it again, if Dr. Jowdy ever
opened a clinic here in OKC, I would have the utmost confidence in getting treatment exclusively from Dr. Jowdy. He's a man of great character who has a gentle spirit and is a wonderful listener. Next time I go to the clinic I'm going to see if I can bribe Dr. Jowdy away from Wichita and see if he'll
open a center here in OKC.
Seriously, that's how much confidence I have in him.
Well, I sound like a HC commercial and that's not what I wanted to make this post about
. It's just that I get so excited when I see someone else who was as sick (or sicker) as I was, and is now showing great progress. It makes my heart leap for joy and I thank our good Lord for the healing He is doing in Lisa's body. God has given these two doctors a special gift, and his wonderful staff too. I believe it's no accident that I was led to the HC. God used this forum, He used Denise (Deejavu) and He even used the people who tried to warn me not to go there for various reasons. I was a BIG skeptic before going to the HC, probably the biggest skeptic the HC ever had, but when you walk in that place you feel like you're surrounded by people who love and care for you as if you were their own family. It really is a special place and it's ashamed more people are not more
open to this approach to healing.
But, I do understand why people are skeptical and reluctant, especially because of all the brainwashing we've had from doctors and big pharma. Sadly, people's skepticism is what will keep them sick for a long time--it did me. To those of you who were once like me, skeptical, reluctant, distrust of biological medicine, if you are still sick after being on abx for two, three, or like me, five years, and still not getting better, it's time to do something drastic. Yes, it's a risk, but so is taking all of those poisons (abx) you are taking to try to get better. My gut is still suffering from the consequences of five years of taking abx. Dr. Jernigan is going to focus on this and help me get better next time I see him (in a few weeks I believe). I trust that through BRS testing and God's leading and wisdom, he will come up with the right treatment plan to help heal my gut from the damage done to it from abx. There's a chance I could have some parasites that need to be addressed too, I don't know, but I have every confidence that Dr. Jowdy, and/or Dr. Jernigan will figure it out and get me better.
One last thing, many people say it's expensive and they can't afford this treatment protocol. Yep, it was expensive for me too. I decided that this would be the very last protocol I would try, it was do or die for me. I told my wife (daisyrlb) that if this protocol failed, then this was it. I had my funeral and financial affairs in order and was ready to go. But God had other plans. I'm so glad too because the thought of not being able to be around my three (one on the way) grandkids just tears my heart when I think about
it. My grandkids are what kept me motivated to not give up. People on this forum, my wife and my family, they all encouraged me to continue to fight until I could fight no more. Well, I could not fight anymore, but when I got to the Hansa Center, they took up the fight for me and taught my body how to fight this disease on it's own. They "taught" it with their natural medicines, therapies, treatments and helped me to get rid of the negativism that had kept my mind stuck on death. I felt defeated and hopeless, but at the HC they treat the whole person--body, mind and spirit. They don't treat the disease, they treat the whole person, and that's why I believe I have done so well with this protocol.
I wake up each morning thanking God for His continued healing to every part of my body and I rejoice and thank Him for this new day of life and for the purpose He has for me to be alive today. I go to bed thanking Him for the grace and strength He's given me to get through another day. I thank God for sparing my life and giving me another chance to live and to live life to the fullest. What a difference two weeks at the Hansa Center made in my life (and my wife's too). As I've said before, yes, the protocol is expensive, but if it makes you better--it's priceless!
I pray for all of you who continue to suffer with this horrible disease. If you are still suffering after years of trying various protocols, I hope you will give some thought to at least getting Dr. Jernigan's book, "Beating Lyme Disease". You will learn more about
this disease than you ever thought possible. Dr. Jernigan has suffered as much as many of us have. In fact, he suffered so much that he was sure he was going to die from this disease, just like many of us have felt at times. He has walked in our shoes, he knows this disease inside and out. If nothing else, I encourage you to read the book and at least consider trying the home protocol "The Perfect 7". Denise can help guide you along the way as she got better on the home protocol in just 8-9 months.
I chose to do the protocol at the center because I was too sick to read the book and try to figure it all out on my own. I wanted to be there to learn HOW to do it, plus I wanted to "force" Dr. Jernigan to convince me why this was the way to get better and not some kind of "hocus pocus" medicine. I was like a little kid, who after every time his parents say something, he says, "why?" I probably asked him "why" over a hundred times in the two weeks I was there. Dr. Jernigan earned every cent he got from me. I was no easy "customer", but he was patient with me, or at least pretended to be.
Rhonda and I are going to Tampa next month to see our two little granddaughters (can't wait!!!), that's something I couldn't even think of doing seven months ago. Life is good, and it's getting better, and when I see Dr. Jernigan later this month, I already got my list of questions for him. He better be ready!!
Lisa's husband, thanks for the update. It's a real upper and very inspirational, and I know it will be for many other's here as well.
Please let Lisa know that Rhonda and I, and many others here on the HW forum, are praying for her continued success. Any yours too!
