I Have My Life Back!
Three years ago, before I started coming in to see Dr. Abby, I was injured and I believe that injury caused my issues. I suffered from headaches and back and shoulder pain. When it was at its worst, it was extremely irritating and I would even sometimes cry! I would stretch, take medications, and apply ice as an attempt to relieve the pain. This would work—but only temporarily. I had trouble focusing on every aspect of my life and I couldn’t fully enjoy my life. When I was engaged, I attended a bridal show where Dr. Abby was performing free nerve supply screenings. My scan made me realize that I needed her help. Now that I regularly see Dr. Abby, I am so much happier! I have fewer headaches, less pain all over, and I can even focus on work! I enjoy coming into the office; everyone is so nice! I have seen a huge improvement in my health!
My name is Beth. I began chiropractic care because I had a colon disease called diverticulitis. I was diagnosed with this two years ago. At its worst, I had excruciating pain in my stomach that never went away. I couldn’t even eat certain foods. I was hospitalized for four days twice for it and was even on morphine to help the pain subside. After leaving the hospital, I was on very high dosage antibiotics to help. I used to go to a chiropractor in the past for pain, but never for diverticulitis. Since beginning care at Health From Within, I have not gotten sick with diverticulitis! I am slowly adding foods back into my diet I used to not be able to eat. I feel much better and healthier. I also used to have severe knee pain. I got a knee scope, maxed out my Cortisone shots, and couldn’t walk. After starting care I have very minimal knee pain. I can even walk on the treadmill again! My rotator cuff in my shoulder was also torn. I refused to have surgery and my pain is about 90% gone after care here as well. The Health From Within staff is amazing. They are very willing to help and adjust my schedule with my life. Dr. Abby is so good on an emergency basis and I can always reach her when I need her. I am truly amazed that everything that has worked for me with the help of God and Dr. Abby!
Overcoming depression, fibromyalgia and chronic sickness
My body was ravaged by sickness and disease, my lifestyle was horrifically unhealthy, and I felt like I imagined people do when they are 90. All of this at just 31.
I had struggled with various health issues since childhood, but still never dreamed it could get as bad as it did. I had a laundry list of problems: chronic sinusitis and bronchitis, allergies, migraine headaches, digestive problems, menstrual problems, insomnia, joint pain, sciatica and got an average six to eight viral infections a year. I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which brought with it muscle pain and weakness, crushing pain in my hands and feet, profound exhaustion, difficulty concentrating and focusing and even hair loss.
Basically, everything hurt all the time.
I was taking all sorts of different prescriptions and over-the-counter medications every single day. I was overweight and was struggling with an eating disorder. I had also been told by various doctors that I would have to be on antidepressants for the rest of my life to deal with depression. Not a very pretty picture.
At that point, I had no hope.
After about two months [of Maximized Living care], my health started improving—much to my surprise. Today, I am the healthiest I have ever been! I take no medications for anything. I have no more allergies, no more sinusitis, no more bronchitis, no more migraines, no more digestive or menstrual problems, no more insomnia, my hair quit falling out, and my pain levels have dramatically decreased. Some days, I have no pain at all! I have been delivered from depression, no longer have an eating disorder, and have lost over 40 pounds and am still losing.
My life has been truly transformed.
And through all of this, I have discovered my purpose, my passion, and my destiny. I have discovered who I am.
Nutrition plans that changed my family’s lives
I don’t even know if I can completely express just how much this program has changed my life!
I have a completely different view of food now. I don’t think of it simply as something to eat because I am hungry. I have a new mindset about how food fuels my body and how to combine different foods in a way that will fuel my body to keep up with the demands of my life.
As you know, our whole family is on board and the kids are loving it! They are sleeping better and are less cranky without the processed foods and so much sugar. We have broken a cycle for them. It has become who we are now.
Losing pounds, fixing my scoliosis and kicked my medications
I knew I had a problem and it was going to take a long time and money. My back has been in pain for four years. Mainly due to football injuries. My neck was nearly curving the wrong way. On the fourth week of care my pain was gone and I had more energy to do things.
My scoliosis is now from 11 degrees to 5 degrees. To date I take no medications for my back pain (I took four Ibuprofen a day or more in the past!) and take no allergy medicine. I have also lost a considerable amount of weight which is still coming off.
Finally taking charge
I feel like I’ve finally gotten a road map to a better life. I’ve been losing weight and feeling better, more alive. I’ve also found myself feeling less stressed out with the daily grind. I’ve been able to take charge of situations which would normally send me into a panic.
Beating migraines and medication
For years, I had suffered from migraines. This led to seizures and to TiA’s. No doctor could give me the reason why or help me. All I got was more medicine (I was up to 14 pills every day).
After one month I am now down to three in the morning and two at night. I haven’t had any seizures and have only had a few migraines. Compared to before, I am able to get out of bed for a reason. I have my life back!!
