Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself and share a little about my MM story. Because I’ve been sick for so long, with symptoms piling on and with increasing intensity of old symptoms; I have become really isolated over the last few years. This hasn’t been healthy for me to be so disconnected from humanity, but I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that it’s HARD to connect when you don’t feel good. I knew I needed to make a change, so I made a promise to myself this year that no matter how bad I feel, I have to reach out for human connection.
I discovered Anthony last April at a point where I was so frustrated with constantly being told: Your symptoms are because you are getting old. We don’t know what causes those symptoms, but here, take this prescription. You’re just going to have to live with chronic pain for the rest of your life. And so on. I have struggled with a laundry list of chronic health issues my whole life that didn’t seem to be related in any way until I found Anthony. He was the first person that connected all my symptoms and gave me hope that I could truly heal. I immediately started with the celery juice which I have had every day for the last year and 3 months. I also incorporated some supplements. I absolutely cannot stomach the heavy metal detox smoothie, but whenever I remember, I take the supplements in capsules, eat my wild blueberries, and try to choke down cilantro-yes, I’m one of ‘those’ people that strongly dislike the taste-I used to love it, then one day something changed. While I have been a strict vegetarian for the last 20 years, I still struggle greatly with eliminating TWO of the big ‘NO NO’s-gluten and dairy-I love to bake-and happen to be really good at it-and I am madly in love with cheese. The irony is that last summer I was pretty good at not eating those things, and when I did, I wasn’t so in love with them anymore. But then colder weather came and a lot of stress. I’m a stress eater and I turn to dairy and gluten (cont’d ⬇️)
