"I did not know how amazing the body is until I set out on a quest to address my own dis-ease with Alternative Therapies... I still have thyroid function after 10+ years without medication, I no longer suffer with chronic sinus issues, or migraines, my sciatic pain of 10 years has magically disappeared…”

I am a strong proponent for Alternative and Complementary Therapies and feel I would not be in the shape that I am if I had followed what the medical profession has to offer. I am in my 50’s and feel like I am in better health than when I was in my early 30’s.

For more than 5 years, I struggled (and was on and off a variety of medications) with chronic sinus infections. I felt disabled when dealing with the pain. It was hard to concentrate or function at work and the constant pain interrupted my daily life. Often my sinus pressure would trigger debilitating Migraines, something I battled from a young age.

With one round of 10 sessions of Acupuncture for my sinus infections, I was off all sinus medication and for 30 years since, have only had one sinus-type headache (which was actually very mild). You can imagine…this was nothing short of a miracle for me!

I began having migraine headaches at the age of 17, which continued to disrupt my daily life at work, home, and at times I would get migraines during my sleep. Often I would wake up with them and be unable to lift my head without being thrown into another one, like a loop of migraines, this could go on for several days.

I once found myself parked on the side of the road, less than a block from my home, crying and terrified with no idea where I was. If the police had stopped, they, surely, would have put me in a mental institution because, I could not form a sentence, I did not know my name, did not know where I was going, nor could I drive, let alone walk. I felt alone and helpless. It was incapacitating to say the least by a migraine.

My medical doctor had been prescribing various Migraine medications without resolve, then I discovered Herbal and Nutritional Therapies, after nearly 30 years of suffering, I am ecstatic to be prescription free and nearly Migraine free for 10+ years.

In addition, some 20 years ago, I was presented with the disheartening news of being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease of the thyroid. The doctors told me it was incurable and would only get worse which did not paint a pretty picture. I was prescribed drugs to relieve the symptoms but, after a few months of taking increasing amounts of the drug, I came to the conclusion that they were causing my thyroid to completely shut down and it seemed the drugs would eventually take the place of the thyroid on some level (since it was not required to function).

I was in my early 40’s and in pretty good physical shape at the time, I routinely worked out and had followed a healthy diet. I dreaded the idea of ending up like the classic thyroid patient with the “thick neck and thick body”. (2005)
