Since August 2021, I have struggled with my health. I went from a straight A, lacrosse playing, 17 year old highschool student to a failing student who was always in and out of the hospital. It started out with severe vommiting, weight loss, and constipation. It would go from these 3 symptoms to severe joint aches/pain, numbness in both legs, daily migraines, lightheadedness, nausea 24/7, tired no matter how much sleep, breakouts in hives, brain fog, bloating, severe stomach pain, and significant acid reflux. I was first diagnosed with Eosinphilic esophagitis, then severe GERD, Asthma, Idiopathic chronic constipation, and finally anemia. I went to Mayo Clinic GI, as they were "the best care in the world." Under their care, I found anything but the best. Through the 2 years under there care I was told that my conditions give me no symptoms, was labeled as rumination (excessive thinking/dwelling on condition making it worse), told stress was causing all these symptoms, put on 6+ strong medications and not warned of the harmful side effects, and was last told that they've done everything they can for my case, there only solution being another strong & harmful medication. In all, they pushed my case to the side because I look healthy. So even though any test I did with them came out positive for something, I was labeled as thinking about it too much. When confronting them with pushing my case to the side with this label & prescribing me on these harsh medications, I was told they've done everything they can for me. The thing that made me the most upset was the rumination label. I didn't wake up at 17 years old and think, "hey I wanna be chronically ill for the rest of my life." I didn't chose this. I have been failing school, had to quit my NCAA sport, and havn't lived 1 day feeling healthy since August 2021. I didn't think this into existence. I felt hopeless after my last appointment with them. Not even the best GI doctors in the world could take me seriously, so who would ? The answer being, a holistic doctor specializing in the art of Chinese herbal medicine and holistic healing. From the start of the appointment, the doctor was interested in my case and was confident he could help me. After some testing, he found that I have a significant amount of bad bacteria, fungus's, and viruses throughout my body. He found tapeworms and roundworms in my colon, liver, small intestine, and stomach. He found a thyroid imbalance/issue, along with some clogged temporals in my brain. More importantly, he found severe damage to my liver from all the medications Mayo Clinic prescribed me the past 2 years. I finally felt a sense of relief. Yes, I have something wrong in most of my organs, but I finally had a doctor that took me seriously. I finally found a doctor that didn't think I was making everything up. He told me that we can fix this, though it may take some time since my case is complicated. We have a set herbal plan to rid my body of all these bad parasites, bacteria, and viruses. He said it will take around 2 months, maybe more depending on how my body takes everything. In all, this is your sign to go to a holistic doctor, and maybe they will take your case seriously !
