Hello! I wanted to share how I have been healed in hopes that it may help others in their quest for restored health. I began following this forum January 2015 out of desperation believing that I was going to die! My tale begins as many of yours... One day shopping i became so dizzy I thought I was having a stroke. Four months, eight specialists, seven misdiagnoses, and countless tests later I wound up in emergency surgery! The final diagnosis under the medical model was Ménière's disease which after four months of dizziness nausea and vomiting caused LPR or silent reflux, acute gastritis, stomach polyps, and a vasovagal response condition with the random bouts of blood pressure and heart rate dropping accompanied by passing out! It was explained to me by my surgeon that the strain on my digestive tract caused a weakened gallbladder to cease working. No stones were ever found however my gallbladder was removed via an emergency surgery and was found to be swollen, rigid, and rotting from the inside out! Following the surgery I could keep no food down, was in constant pain and discomfort from nausea. I was virtually bedridden and failed to improve. Medical doctors placed me on PPIs which did not improve my condition and I was told that I would be on them for the foreseeable future. The impact however of these harsh drugs on my weekend body were deleterious. Months went by and I became weaker and more ill. But then one day I read something on this forum that I had not read before. So began some research and finally found someone willing to take me on as a patient for nutrition response testing or muscle testing. After a very short few minutes of testing I was told that there was a relative cure for me! I had tried everything I read on these forums from Minooka honey to cabbage juice and aloe vera... but not only was there no improvement I seemed to get worse and could not understand why these things would work for others and not me! My MD/ND explained to me that nutrition response testing is individualized and that each person is a different organism in need of different approach based on physiology nutritional history current medical condition etc.... And my cure is okra! Yes I said okra! How could it be so simple? It is a Whole Foods supplement (or as close to a whole foods as it can be being a supplement) and that along with Pituitrophin for a pituitary malfunction also identified through the response testing has been my cure. It is now five months and I have my life back! My MD/ND indicates it will take me 12 to 18 months to fully heal But i am well on my way! I am up to 54 different foods I eat and have no negative reaction, I have no nausea and sleep flat again on the bed, I no longer have the sticky glob of whatever choking me in my throat and can breathe normally! I walk a mile a day (quite a feat as just five months ago I could only crawl from my bed to my bathroom). I have not had a vasovagal episode in months now and I feel as though I am strong and sturdy once again not on the verge of collapse and death at any moment! And I do not exaggerate that! But please do not do what I did! Do not order out for okra supplements believing that they will help you! Have the nutrition response testing done for yourself to find your ultimate cure! I could have tried and just about did every remedy talked about on this forum and because it was not what I needed it made me worse! And I can honestly say that I could have tried different remedies for years and never have gotten to okra! There is an answer folks! I went from having a cardiac specialist, an internal medicine specialist, A surgeon, three general practitioners, an ENT, A neurologist, and an otologist to one MD/ND who practices holistic medicine and recognizes the need to blend both the medical model and the natural path I could have wasted years of my life in suffering trying to find the right remedy or combination of medical treatments...., but at what cost? I am now gaining my weight back, hair and nails are growing back again, my gums which had receded below my enamel line are recovering! My liver kidneys heart and lungs as well as my stomach and esophagus are all functioning normally once again! And all of my blood work has leveled out! If you are concerned about cost it is not that costly! The initial testing for me was just $200 and an office visit of $45 each time I go. The supplements are less than $40 and last me 2 1/2 months. So it is true that insurance does not pay for this type of medical treatment, but I have had less out-of-pocket expense with my MD/ND than I did with co-pays deductibles etc. for everything else I had previously done through the medical model! I cannot recall now who originally posted about this testing but I thank you! And I am grateful for this forum! I wish all of you godspeed on your health recovery journey!
