So today I share with you one of the greatest milestones in any of my 4 years of being ill with toxic mold exposure.  Today marks 7 weeks since I've experienced any Chronic Fatigue or CFS as some might call it.  I am also able to eat out at restaurants now and not have reactions in stores or restaurants when exposed to any kind of molds.

9 weeks ago I began this "blind" journey of some "revolutionary and life changing" alternative medicine provided by Dr. Lonnie Herman of Westside Advanced Care Center.  I'll be honest, I DID NOT know much about any of the methods Dr. herman used before I started the program.  However, I do have to say..I was NOT at all skeptical.  I had tried so many things to get well and detox and nothing seemed to work.  I always felt like I was going to die.  I have come across many who were completely skeptical because it wasn't something they were used to so they don't even give it 6 months of their life to try and see if it is even plausible.  To this day those people never got well.  But honestly, how would they know right?  They didn't even give it a chance.  Well, I decided in February that I would give Dr. Herman and his knowledge a chance.  Afterall, what did I have to lose?  I've been dying now for 4 1/2 years from toxic mold and Lyme Disease so why not try to save myself.  In 4 1/2 years I wasted a total of $5,800 on supplements, seeing mold doctors, naturopaths and who knows how much money was spent that my insurance actually covered.

I am happy to announce that I have been feeling so much better. (like never before).  I was very lucky and blessed to have just recently experienced my daughters High School graduation this past week.  At the begining of the year I worried how this day would look or if I would even be able to be there for one of the most important days of her life.  Not only was I there but I had energy to throw her an amazing open house and spent two days making awesome dishes and party food.  I know I still have a ways to go with treatment, but I can honestly say I know that I now have a future.  Before seeing Dr. Herman I did not think that I could do anything like I had done before.  With the help of family, friends and even strangers donating to my fund along with my own crazy efforts and the kindness of Dr. Herman it has definitely been a team effort to try and save my life.  Although I am not completely out of the woods just yet, I NO LONGER have that constant feeling that I am dying.  Things feel like they are turning a corner and I am really confident that my blog posts will continue to get brighter and brighter to give others hope.

If you are thinking of getting seeing Dr. Herman and experiencing his many "custom" and vast methods of treating each patient individually and tired of wasting your time and thousands of dollars on doctor after doctor or this treatment and that treatment only to feel the same, please give Dr. Herman's office a call.  He can and will help you get your life back.  Dr. Lonnie Herman is known by many for providing unique methods, drug free, whole body, integrative, life saving recovery programs to reverse ANY chronic disease. (954) 370-3100

All I can do is report how I feel and what my experience has been. 

Here is a list of symptoms I sent to Dr. Lonnie Herman back in February and next to it you can see the symptoms that are now "gone". (only a 7 week progression)

Hey Jen, I can totally relate to your list of symptoms! Mine are a little different here and there and I have a LOT of pain. My 4 year old son is now starting to have heart palpitations and I'm getting really worried. I took my urine test and am waiting for the results now. I'm in Wichita, KS and was wondering if your dr knew anybody here that could help me?

Is there a referral for the Netherlands (or perhaps Europe)? Many thanks!

I have so many of the symptoms mentioned above, plus others. My body is actually begin to deform and I have chronic muscle atrophy. My bloodwork presently mostly normal in fact much better than normal for my age, 52, except my Vit. D. drops very low, B12 periodically and iron. I also have an "MGus" factor in my bone marrow. My doctor is mystified. I am at my wits end and can't live like this anymore. I am in Ontario Canada.
