“As you know, I was addicted to self-diagnosing on the internet, but I want you to know you are the reason I am ending my affair with the internet because I now trust that I am getting the medical help I need. I feel fortunate to have found Wellness Alternatives. I have worn a superwoman cape for 2 years because I didn’t know what was happening to me. My self-advocacy and survival skills were exhausted. I was tired, a little depressed, brain-buzzed and scared. None of my previous specialists were truly helpful and none could connect why I have four different inflammatory diseases. My immune system was pissed off and I needed to find out why. I knew my symptoms were not just bad luck. I knew I was not crazy! My symptoms are real and have deeply affected my life.
When I found that Wellness Alternatives treats patients with invisible illnesses, autoimmune diseases and cytokine induced sickness… I said this was ME! I have an INVISIBLE ILLNESS! I was shocked to find that you were nearly in my backyard and – OMG; I am so glad I called. Passion and Knowledge and Understanding leapt through the phone. I had never heard of the tests you offered to look at my immune system and no one had tested to see if hormones were involved. At first, I was hesitant because Wellness Alternatives is out of our insurance network, but I guess sometimes you get what you pay for.
After 30 days with 2 visits and 3 tests, I have hope for the first time in 2 years. My hair loss has subsided and I have baby hair growing in. I am on less thyroid medication, and I have a lot more energy. The dietary restrictions are not as hard as I thought and it is working- my constipation and diarrhea episodes are getting under control. I feel much more clear-headed and positive. 2013 is going to be a good year for me…. I may even train for the MS 150 this year and I have you to thank.” Sincerely, Stephanie
