It’s story time. And this story is dedicated to a very couragous lady whom I gain inspiration from every time I’m with her…..
Denise, a good friend of mine was dealing with some strange physical symptoms for which she was seeing 9 different doctors and was $7,000 dollars in debt. A debt that this hard working waitress was going to be paying on for a while. Those strange symptoms were bloating, weight gain, headaches, upper arm pain, stomach pain, acid reflux and night hot flashes.
She underwent CT scans, endoscopic procedures, and was put on Nexium, 4 tablespoons of milk of magnesia, and 2 stool softner pills per day. She was taking 4 to 6 excederin per day to control her headaches. She was told she had acid reflux, a hiatial hernia and would be on Nexium (an expensive medication) for the rest of her life and that she was premenopausal and to just learn to live with her symptoms. Lucky for Denise she did not except this answer and knew in her heart that there was help for her somewhere she just didn’t know where.
Now comes the strange turn of events….she went to an aerobics class at a church (from which she had been absent due to how crappy she felt) and at the end of class the instructor played a religious song for cool down. The words of song moved Denise to the point of tears. A lady sitting next to her noticing this and scooted a little closer and held Denise’s hand.
The instructor stopped Denise before she left to say she was glad to see her back in class. Denise explained to her that she hadn’t been to class because she wasnt’ feeling to good. This instructor was also a nurse at a holistic physician’s office and told Denise that she should stop in. Denise expained that she simply could not afford any more doctors. This intuitive instructor gave her a gift certificate to help with the expenses. After a few days Denise decided to call for an appointment. The receptionist was expecting her call and fit her into an already totally booked schedule that Friday.
Denise was found to be extremely toxic due to constipation. She was placed on a 7 week diet plan, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, physical therapy, and probiotics 225 million organisms and was taken off her medications. Denise has finished the 7 week diet plan and feels better than she has in years! She continues to get adjustments and acupunture from time to time. Her weight is back down and she does not get headaches as often. She has not had any night hot flashes and best of all she does not have any stomach pain or reflux.
Denise is on a path to healing the whole body. Mind, Body, and Spirit and I am so proud of her!
The purpose of this post is to reach those of you who suffer from symptoms similar to Denise’s. When it comes to your health and well being…..listen to your intution and TRUST it. Seek other answers.
This post is no way meant to undermine the medical community….God guides our physicians and other healthcare professionals and we need them, however, we need to learn to listen to our inner voice and ask lots of questions and if possible try alternate therapies.
