It has been a complete whirlwind! Total craziness!! For the past two weeks, I’ve been receiving treatment at the American Center for Biological Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona for my Crohn’s Disease. I start my third and final week at the clinic tomorrow. I can’t even begin to say what a blessing this experience has been in my life. Aside from getting married and giving birth to my two boys, this has been one of the best experiences I’ve had! An opportunity to feel mentally and physically well has been amazing! It’s honestly hard to put into words.
Not only have I lost 20 pounds since last October, but I feel emotionally lighter. A lot of mental weight has been lifted off my gut the past few weeks and I can honestly say, for the first time in YEARS, my head feels clear and my gut is happy. I’m happy! It’s hard to admit but I honestly haven’t been happy for a long time. I had felt very depressed, sad, stressed, and angry. That was my normal. To now be experiencing, peace, calm, happiness, it’s crazy to see and feel the difference. I’m down to 5 mg of prednisone and I’ve been having normal poops!! I’m still having some upper stomach pain but its manageable. I’m still not sleeping very well but I’m blaming that one on the prednisone. Overall, I’m feeling so much better. I’m also eating extremely clean! Meats, vegetables, kombucha, minimal starches, and very low sugar. No dairy and no gluten!
I just want to say a big thank you to all the staff at ACBM!!! You all have made this experience life changing! I’ve learned so much about my body the past few weeks and I can’t wait to go home and live a happy, healthy life! I’ve been greeted at the front desk everyday by Richard and Mindy. Their friendly smiles and kind personalities make it a great way to start the day. Amanda, Jacque, and Megan- you guys are AWESOME! Not only do you possess a wealth of knowledge but the care and attention you give to each patient does not go unnoticed. It’s like no other treatment I’ve ever received. You care! Brandie- thank you for helping me find my happiness again!!! You are amazing and ACBM is lucky to have you. You have touched my life and I will never forget it. Not only do you possess healing powers but your calm and happy spirit is contagious! I’ve learned a wealth of information from you, in our secessions, and I can’t wait to go home and implement them into my life. Thank you! Thank you! Dr. Drobot is great as well. Probably one of the few doctors to listen and take his time explaining “it all” to me. And he actually cares! The rest of the staff has been nothing but helpful and friendly. Everyone at ACBM is wonderful and I have nothing negative to say. They help people feel well and treat people like humans. You’re not a number, you’re a person.I think I’m going to post separate blogs about the treatments I received at the clinic. I just wanted to give an overall update from the past few weeks. It has been busy and I’ll admit, you get tired from all the treatments you receive throughout the day. I’ve learned a lot about my body, both physically and mentally. I intend to apply the biological approach to health for the rest of my life. I feel like I have no other option unless I want to be on drugs, feel unhappy, be in pain, and be a slave to a toilet. No thank you! I’ve gotten a taste of freedom and it’s good! No turning back now. It’s time to live life!
