It all began on December 16, 2006. It was the holiday season and our office was very hectic. I had no time for lunch and just grabbed a bite to eat from whatever patients brought in; mainly, cookies and chocolates.
On that Tuesday afternoon, I broke out into a cold sweat, felt shaky and experienced vertigo right as I was treating a patient. I ran to the bathroom to vomit and returned to finish treating the patient. This went on for about an hour and I finally could not do that anymore. We had to cancel all of the remaining patients. My blood pressure was 190/165, my pulse was 90 and temperature normal.
My chiropractic assistant took me to my family doctor who tried to stop my vertigo and vomiting with pills and shots, but with no success. The medical doctor finally gave me a shot to knock me out and I was taken home.
About a week before this event, I had bragged about never missing a day of work due to illness or injury. Now I had to miss two days in a row. For the next two months, I went through a healing journey. First, I saw a Neurologist who could not find anything wrong with me. My blood pressure was back to normal with no medication and my brain MRI was also normal.
Next, I visited the Ear/Nose/Throat specialist who discovered I had slight hearing loss in my left ear. All the blood work came back normal and he did not know what caused the vertigo. The next stop was the Urologist. The PSA was slightly high, but the digital exam and biopsy were normal. A scheduled visit to the GI doctor and a colonoscopy revealed twelve polyps, but none of them were cancerous.
In the meantime, between medical doctor visits I was seeing three different chiropractic colleagues. They gave me a variety of treatments, including activator adjustment, manual manipulation, cold laser, nutrition and diet modification. While all medical testing could not find the cause of my vertigo, Nutritional Response Testing® revealed I had a virus in my ear, malfunctioning kidneys, parasites, adrenal fatigue and multiple food allergies. All of these came from eating too much sugar and my stressed-out body just could not handle it; resulting in immune system breakdown. I continued with acupuncture and herbal remedies which did not help at all. While the cold laser helped to eliminate the symptom of vertigo, the diet change and nutrition support were the effective approach for handling the root cause of the problem.
What is Nutritional Response Testing®? It is a noninvasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlaying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Through our analysis, we are testing the body’s neurological reflexes on the surface of the body. These reflexes are the body’s way to show what and how the nervous system is doing. It is the nervous system’s responsibility to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ.
In my practice, adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism are the most common conditions we handle, followed by digestive issues, allergies and food sensitivity. We are also helping post-covid long haulers with autonomous nervous system dysfunction and patients with chronic ailments with their recovery.
We are living in a polluted environment with chemicals and heavy metal toxicity, breathing in bad air, eating highly processed food, taking drugs with bad side effects and stress from listening to bad news and engaging in negative social media. Besides sleeping well, adequate exercise and mindfulness, nutrition is one of the four approaches to better health.
