|Client Testimonial from Jessica Moser, April 3, 2016.
I struggled for many years having symptoms affecting various parts of my body all at the same time. The onset of my health problems started in 2010 when I started getting chronic numbness pain and tingling down my whole left arm followed by pain at the base of my neck. This became so chronic that I struggled with mundane functions such as holding a phone, typing and turning the steering wheel or doorknob. I went to the ER they did a x-ray of the base of my neck and sent me to physical therapy because they said my strength was that of someone 30 years older than what I was. I also had an MRI of my neck which did not show any alarming causes for the numbness and pain. I also had chronic insomnia restless legs and irritable bowel issues affecting me at the same time. I was on different antidepressants, ADD medicine, anxiety pills and sleeping pills.
Every few months I was back at the doctor’s office demanding help because nothing was working. Every doctor would say the same thing, “I don't know what's causing your symptoms, you don't have any obvious reasons that you're feeling this way. It's most likely depression and fibromyalgia”. I didn't want to settle with that assumption before having everything looked into.
Over the next five years I saw a specialist in virtually every area I was having complications with. I had a colonoscopy that confirmed irritable bowel syndrome, a neurologist nerve conduction study that said I have carpal tunnel, a sleep study confirmed I have moderate sleep apnea, a brain MRI that confirmed a lesion, a spinal tap that confirmed a systemic inflammatory response, a neuropsychologist who said I have PTSD, chronic depression, anxiety and am in the 99th percentile for ADD. I tried fibromyalgia medications and that didn't work. My pain was at about a 6.8 to 7 per day and I was taking two Percocet daily to cope.
It was December 2015 and after discussing my chronic issues with Janina she suggested that maybe the thyroid was the cause. I then had a thyroid panel done by my doctor. My doctor did not see any ranges that were extreme but I was at the high-end of what was considered “normal” on these tests but not in the range where the doctor felt it could be an issue. Janina had sent me a report that lists over 300 symptoms that are affected by hypo-thyroidism type 2. I was alarmed at how many symptoms I was experiencing that lined up with this condition. Janina also did a Bio-Well energy scan that confirmed very low thyroid energy. She suggested I add Lugol’s Plus Iodine supplement to cleanse my iodine receptors. She explained the role of iodine with thyroid health and how these receptors get plugged up with halogens such as fluoride, fluorine, chloride, chlorine, bromide and bromines and also mercury. She also suggested trying natural thyroid supplements and said it would take at least a month before I would notice if it worked.
During the first month it seemed as if my symptoms got worse but as she assisted me through this process she reassured me that the supplements are helping me detox. Anytime I had an issue, she instantly gave me feedback and research that backed up her suggestions for making me feel better. I've never had a medical professional so willing and dedicated to helping me find a solution.
After 30 days of being on the supplements for hypothyroidism type 2, I started noticing major differences. I was able to completely go off all pain medicine. My daytime fatigue disappeared. And my mood and outlook change something out of the ordinary for me. I was able to manage stress better, and maintain a good frame of mind. My hair is no longer falling out and is now strong and healthy and my nails are growing again. I've been on the supplements now for a total of 3 1/2 months and am convinced that Janina has found a way to help me cope with symptoms that were affecting my quality of life.
