Sitting across from my doctors desk with my heart in my throat, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing:
“An M.S hug.”
I think I stopped breathing…
Did she just say M.S? Is this what I’ve been dealing with for the past seven years?
My whole body started to tremble as I felt the familiar weakness of chronic fatigue I’ve come to know so well consume my whole body. My legs went numb. My heart started pounding. So much ran through my mind. I didn’t know if I wanted to cry, scream, or lunge at her across the desk. I was furious! I was relieved. Now I know for sure what I am dealing with and I’m not going insane.
Dr: “Do you have difficulty swallowing?”
Me: “Yes, a little. Most tablets and I never used to have trouble”
Dr: “Had your handwriting been affected?”
Me: “Yes! I have to write in capitals. I can’t use running writing anymore.”
I’d forgotten about that…[This is the start to my chapter in the number one bestselling co-authored book ‘IFly’]
For seven years I had visited my G.P and countless natural therapists, seeking relief from Fibromyalgia symptoms including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, severe insomnia, food allergies, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, bladder incontinence, blurry vision, memory loss, severe whole-body trembling & systemic pain. I could barely string a sentence together.
I didn’t want the ‘medical retirement’ (disability pension) she had previously offered me. I had goals. Dreams of travel and buying a house, being financially free and having my own business again one day…
I secretly longed for a walker. But at 45 years old, something just didn’t add up. Before I knew it, I was on several prescription medications and popping anti-inflammatories like lollies.
I knew with my whole heart that I could heal naturally. I left that clinic and didn’t look back.
Three days after my diagnosis, I was invited to attend another health event. The presenter talked about a stem cell regeneration product I’d been taking. It had eliminated my cognitive issues and memory loss and I no longer had CFS. In fact, I’d never felt happier and more energetic. But the ‘M.S hugs’ (temporary paralysis of the lungs) were a serious concern to me.
A clinical nutritionist approached me at the end of the event and we briefly talked. He had great success with healing autoimmune conditions. I felt the shivers all over.
In survival mode, I had forgotten what I learned in the past 17 years researching health, wellness and supplementation. Together, we devised a protocol.
Four months later, I was symptom free. 12 months later, I am thriving!
