Are you struggling with chronic pain, anxiety, or age-related health challenges?

Meet Kristo—he suffered from pains in his body, fibromyalgia, three heart attacks, and one stroke, and has been using a sleep apnea device since 2012.

After 25 years of diligently following the medications and surgeries prescribed to him, his long-term doctors informed him in mid-May 2019 that they could no longer do anything for him. By this point, his body had deteriorated significantly.

He could no longer walk well. His vision was only 30% after two failed eye operations. Using two crutches, he could move a maximum of 100 meters before losing balance and falling over due to the pain. He had been suffering from chronic fatigue for at least 30 years, dragging himself through each day.

His wife, his caregiver for many years, juggled her job in childcare with an unpaid "job" as a nurse, driver, cook, cleaning lady, gardener, and chef, leaving her little time in her busy, hectic life.

Kristo was told to get comfortable in a scooter for disabled people and a wheelchair because that was going to be his life going forward. Their world fell apart - until a friend introduced him to our program.

See the new man! Kristo’s journey from chronic fatigue and debilitating pain to renewed vitality is just one example of how our program is helping many people get their lives back holistically, without medications and surgeries.

We are looking to talk to 60 men and women, especially those over 50, who have health problems and are serious about finding a proper solution.

Your insights will help us build a program tailored to your needs. Participants will be rewarded with a 10% discount when the program launches. It provides transformative results, by the way.

Interested? YES or NO?

I have to find a new way to live

#Stress #Grief #Anxiety #Depression #HashimotosThyroiditis #MajorDepressiveDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder

So Im the Executrix of my parents' estate. They both died within 4 months last year. I'm exhausted. Also my husband has been renovating our kitchen so my house is a wreck. I've been using hemp gummies to moderate my Xanax use but I ran out and IDK.... I'm still working. Some days that's all I can do. Probate deadline in 2 weeks and I'm not ready. UGH. Please send encouragement or prayers or good vibes - whatever you can❣️😭 P.S. this Pic is how I feel. Or think. 😪

Puzzled by Melanie R.

You held on-

to life’s puzzle pieces

when you didn’t know where to start.

One piece at a time,

could finally see-

through pain and the tears in your heart.

Each piece of His wonder,

the pieces of you-

Great Love in the darkest of skies.

No, you didn’t stumble,

brought healing from Father

when puzzled in pieces of life.

You rounded the corners,

when jagged and cornered;

they started to fit perfectly.

Each piece in it’s place,

God’s guidance and grace

with beauty of Psalm 17.

My stem cell therapy for immune modulation and upcoming research that will improve it

Stem cell therapy is completely cost prohibitive in the USA, where I've been quoted treatments cost around $5000 dollars each from two different sources. I've been told by my CFIDS specialist that the treatment should be done every 3 months.

So I have a Christian holistic doctor with an MD educational background that amazingly offered me Chinese stem cell therapy at her cost, which was quite cheap since she had it shipped over with an order combined from a total of 3 doctors. I started it just over 2 months ago. I have autoimmune thyroiditis and immune deficiency. What I can tell you is that I felt a decrease in pain in my neck, where I have the most pain, but the effect was strongest right after I got the shot in both elbows, and it doesn't completely remove the pain. I still have to do my neck exercises and stretches and get adjusted by a chiropractor every three weeks so it doesn't become too painful for me and turn into headaches. I didn't notice an effect on my energy levels, but I got COVID-19 four or five weeks after the treatment, which hasn't helped me determine the results very well.

My doctor also has access to placenta stem cell therapy, which I would have preferred, but she wanted to try Chinese stem cell therapy on me first.

Thanks to keepontruckin at phoenixrising.me for showing us even better news on the current research for improvement on stem cell therapy for autoimmune treatment at Mayo Clinic here Scientists pioneer immunotherapy technique for autoimmune diseases

Will this new modified treatment turn out to be a less expensive option?

To understand the differences between Chinese and placenta stem cell therapy, here is an article entitled Development and regulation of stem cell‐based therapies in China and another article entitled Placental-derived stem cells: Culture, differentiation and challenges

Development and regulation of stem cell‐based therapies in China

Clinical researches of stem cell‐based therapies are highly active in China, while it was arduous to determine the most effective way of clinical translation of those advanced therapies.This article briefly introduced the regulatory framework ...

That I Burn by Melanie R.

Lifetime with pain
Pin-pricked in pieces
battled set burning,
it’s raging increases.

It’s chronic,
it’s rare.
Flared Inflammation.
Body that failed…
Complete consummation-

It hindered my soul,
Downtrodden and low.
Withstanding the suffering,
It’s tussling wide loads.

Desperate cold nights
Him calling my name,
preserved me on weary
ignited the flame.

Jesus drew close,
For Him I am sure.
Through all of life sufferings
set me to endure.

The poking, the prodding,
the pain with no cure,
for Him in my body and soul-
I’m made pure.

Heavenly Father,
As you searched and centered my innermost core; my faith ignited your reflection.

Spoken into life to forever burn your kingdom light that kindles throughout my heart.

Resounding faith formed like these words…seen by the ones called, preserved, and understood-
His wisdom given in the Holy flame for present and future time.

That I burn-

When monitored you equipped me in palpable hope through Your sovereignty.

Let it resound its course of your reign!

Carry me through the locked chambers of suffering; for the harder the suffering, the higher your plan.
I yield my body and surrender for I know it is all for Your glory.

Father,
Your eternal word created the fire’s dance when shadows appeared consuming.
You poured your Holy anointing on my answered prayers to keep me burning through the endless nights of chronic pain.

That I burn-

Resuscitated from the smoke and suffocation when darkness lurked to extinguish me.
You received me on Holy ground like Moses and the burning bush.
I thank you for the immeasurable strength to walk upright in this purpose.

That I burn-
My light persevered!

Glory to God!

Sampled, probed, poked, and tested true!

Your name is magnified as my spirit burns in rhythm set to your timing.

In these recent few weeks I am recovering from my 2nd hip surgery (10 weeks post-op),
I have received 2 additional diagnoses.
I’ve had both Leg EMGs, left leg biopsies.
I also had an echocardiogram, heart monitor, pain pump maintenance, bloodwork, etc…

I have relentless burning in physical pain, but also my spirit is burning for the true message of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ!

That I burn-
and to God be the Glory!

Stay strong Mighty Warriors and burn on!
I pray for your strength to endure!

Have you had the Novavax vaccination and has it prevented Long COVID?

So I got COVID-19 for the second time just over 2 weeks ago, and am unvaccinated. I have increased fatigue from the first time I got it more than 2 years ago, which has left me unable to work, whereas previously, with lots of treatment, I decreased my fatigue enough to work part-time.

I have CFIDS with immune defiicency and autoimmune thyroiditis. So I can't take any vaccinations using an autoimmune delivery system, which leaves only Novavax.

The only reason I would be interested in taking Novavax is to prevent Long Covid to try to get working again, since I have strong lungs and don't end up in the hospital with COVID-19. I am still trying new treatments for my immune system.

So have you taken Novavax, and if so, what was your response to COVID-19 after taking it? Are you immune deficient?

Thanks so much for responding to this. If you wish to speak more privately instead of posting here, please don't hesitate to message me.

A Heart Set Free

A great winded rhythm under way;
prickled readiness underfoot.
A mission called into blended shadows-
undulate in shades of smoke as hope glimmers.

Drumming a cleared path of yearning webs for justice where a brightened light pierced an open door.

Candlelit wonders motion the
clouded puffs to view a saved heart… set free.
Chosen and preserved.

A living hope guarded in faith.

Examined, mourned,…pressed,…scarred,…

shattered, repaired;
Never faltered, never failed.

Search me, Oh Lord, and know my heart.
Lead me through the Everlasting Way.
I’ve been tested, and tried… know I am true,…know my heart.
You are my indwelled heart pounding through our shared domain.

Monitor my steadfast rhythm-
the intricate design of each ticking…
of each pulsed beat transformed by this undeniable salvation.

Jesus, with every heartbeat we thank you for your mercy, wisdom, and preservation.
The Holy temple of purpose is pumping power overflow, and is an endless conduit to strength in suffering.

Take heart mighty warriors!
God be with you all!

My Doggie's Doctor #DistractMe , #Fibromyalgia , #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease , #DegenerativeDiscDisease #HashimotosThyroiditis

I wish my Doggie's Doctor could treat me!
Let's back up for a moment.
Ahem. There. Ok. I took my Dog to her Veterinary office today because she was having problems. Turns out she is Diabetic. Her Doctor got her in right away. Everyone in the office was pleasant, and knew my Doggie's name, and she was not afraid one bit, I could just tell! They did tests, pronto, and had a diagnosis within an hour of my dropping her off! She will be in the doggie hospital for 3 days, get her sugar regulated, and I will have explicit instructions on how/what to do! Her Doctor called me and explained all options, treatment, everything --clearly--.
Now. I don't know about you. But I wish I could be treated by my Doggie's Doctor!
