I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t sick. I was born jaundiced so, I clearly came into this world with a compromised liver. Throughout my childhood, I suffered with one ear infection after another, allergies, sinusitis and severe asthma, all of which came with endless supplies of antibiotics, Prednisone, allergy shots, asthma inhalers and medications, not to mention, several trips a year to the emergency room for asthma attacks. I never felt healthy. I couldn’t run and do all of the things my friends could do. It was a lonely time and being on all of those countless medications and dealing with their side effects led me into a deep depression in my teens and left me riddled with anxiety. I was also suffering from an eating disorder that would control my life for 4 years. In my early 20’s, I developed acid reflux which led to GERD and more medications. In my early 30’s, I developed very painful eczema. Around this same time, I also developed a heart arrythmia after experiencing chest pains while walking outside one day. I spent 3 days in the hospital and was ultimately put on a heart medication that I was told I’d have to take every day for the rest of my life in order for my heart to beat properly. I then, began suffering with gallstones that led to the removal of my gallbladder. Two weeks after my gallbladder removal, I began experiencing excruciating intestinal pain and IBS. . This made it impossible for me to digest food and I couldn’t eat anything without horrible consequences. I wasn’t able to eat anywhere except for at home because, I had to be right by the bathroom where I’d spend hours every day in horrible pain and crying. By the time I neared 40, my allergies had gotten so bad that I was literally allergic to almost everything, every food, animal, chemical, scent, tree, flower and so on... I couldn’t go to the mall or even my children’s school without having a terrible reaction to something. I was slowly becming more and more sick and more and more isolated. I developed pain throughout my body that made even walking up a flight of stairs excruciating. I couldn’t walk for more than 30 feet without having to take a break and sit down. I was always out of breath and wheezing and relied on my inhalers and breathing machine several times just to get through the day. I was so unhappy and so fed up with doctor after doctor not being able to help me or worse trying to make me feel like my symptoms were all in my head.
So, how did I go from being the woman I talked about above to the healthy woman I am today? Two words, Anthony William. Now, let me tell you how I came to discover Anthony William aka the Medical Medium. I had become so frustrated with traditional medicine and the doctors and the countless tests and medications that all seemed to lead me nowhere. I knew there must be some answer out there or maybe I just knew I had nothing left to lose but, I began doing research and decided to try the holistic route, natural medicine. During my research, I saw a headline that said, “Do You Have Candida? Take This Quiz to Find Out” So, I did, and the results said I was most definitely suffering from candida. I was intrigued and the more I read, the more I came to believe this must be true. Everything lined up. This appeared to be the answer I was looking for, the answer to all I had suffered with for so long. I found the best candida doctor I could find and dove right in. I took the stool test to see where my candida levels were at and sure enough! I was riddled with enormously high amounts of candida. I finally had my answer (or so I thought). I immediately went on the “Candida Diet”. I cut out sugar completely, stopped drinking coffee (the nightmare!) and even cut out all fruit. Anything that could “feed” the candida was gone. I followed this program for almost 3 years. I did feel a little better but, I was still very sick. I decided I had to look for something more than just what I was doing. I began seeing a doctor who was both a holistic doctor and a medical doctor. He came highly recommended. I figured this to possibly be the best of both worlds, so I made an appointment. This doctor was so kind and understanding. He genuinely cared which was so refreshing to me. I told him about my severe candida, and he tested me. Well, my candida levels were now normal! Thank God for that but, then why am I still so sick?? I told him about my excruciating intestinal pain and IBS since my gallbladder removal. He said immediately that I had something called bile acid malabsorption. He was the first doctor to give me a correct diagnosis for it and was thrilled. He put me on a medication to control it and for 2 weeks, I felt amazing with no symptoms! My relief was short lived though, as I went into anaphylactic shock one day after my morning dose. I was rushed to the hospital and as it turned out, my body developed a severe allergy to the medication, I had to stop taking it and all my intestinal pain and IBS came back with a vengeance. He went on to prescribe me another medication, same horrible result. He then gave me all kinds of ox bile and other natural remedies to try all of which didn’t work, or I reacted to. I told him all about my severe allergies and he gave me all kinds of tests and told me I had something called histamine intolerance. Again, I was so relieved to finally have a proper diagnosis! He put me on a low-histamine diet and said I would have to eat this way for the rest of my life as there is no cure. I cut out tomatoes, spinach, eggplant, no leftover foods, everything had to be prepared fresh, no canned foods spices, no teas… I felt a bit less reactive but, was still very sick and now also frustrated that the cure or answer I had been searching for wasn’t even out there. I had to just keep eating this way and feeling sick and miserable and that was that. Well, I went in one last time to see this doctor and cried hysterically in his office. I was so beaten down and defeated. He felt terrible for me and even more terrible that he just couldn’t seem to help me. He wrote out a prescription for some anti-anxiety pills to help me “deal” with my situation. I stood up about to leave and he said, wait one minute, I guess you could try this. He slid a book across his desk, shrugged his shoulders and said, maybe this will help, it’s helped some of my other patients. That book was Medical Medium by Anthony William. I grabbed the book and the prescription, thanked him and left. He gave me a big hug and wished me well.
I stopped at the pharmacy on the way home and filled my prescription. When I walked in my house, I dropped the book and the pills down on the table and went inside to rest. At that stage, a trip to the doctor was enough to render me useless for the rest of the day. When I woke up from my nap, I grabbed the book and reluctantly began reading. Much to my surprise, I couldn’t believe what this man was saying. His descriptions of the causes of disease, the way what we eat influences how sick we will be, was fascinating to me! I’d been on every diet in the book, keto, paleo, vegetarian, vegan, candida diet… but, nothing made sense to me the way this did. First of all, I could eat fruit and not just eat it but, eat as much as I want!!!! After being told for so long that all sugar, including that in fruit, was the enemy, this was music to my ears! This wasn’t just about “a diet” though. This was about getting to the real root of the problem and healing it from all angles, nutritionally, emotionally, spiritually… I stayed up all night reading that book. This time, could I finally have REALLY found my answer?? It would take a lot of months for me to be able to answer that question. I didn’t quite know where to begin or how to make the information work specifically for me. There was a lot of trial and error and I made many mistakes along the way. I am so relieved to say though, that the answer was YES! My skin cleared up, no more eczema. I began breathing better, my pain went away, my GERD healed and most importantly, my heart began beating normally on its own again! My bile acid malabsorption got better and little by little, I began reacting less and less to everything. Today, I take no medication. I run and have endless energy. I am slowly introducing more and more foods with no reaction. It was nothing short of a miracle. I literally owe my life to Anthony William and I am so excited to share everything that I have learned with you! It took me many months to grasp a hold of all the information that Anthony shared. While groundbreaking & amazing, it is also confusing and complicated. It was especially, difficult to figure out exactly what to eat, which supplements to take and how to make this information work specifically to heal my body. Because, of this it took me a while to start healing. I am here to save you all of that time and trouble. I will do all of the work for you so all that you have to do is focus on your healing.
