In the past I have spent numerous stays in the hospital, have had IVIG treatments, been on numerous immune suppressive medications (including prednisone), seen more than a dozen doctors and many times still was unable to walk any distance and was defiantly not healthy. Spending most of my time resting or in bed, many times I was not able to get the fresh sunlight on my skin except when it hit my skin through my window.
“To get your body healthy you must start by addressing your diet, nutrient deficiencies and lifestyle all while nourishing the mind.”
Fast forward to now, I eat clean and nourish my body and mind daily. I took the steps to understand how to even do that in the first place because let me tell you, with doctors trying to give you this medication or that, many of which for me caused additional symptoms, you may feel lost and not even know where to turn. Learning how to address your body is the most important thing to work towards healing. I practice a healthy lifestyle and understand the importance of it all. I also thankfully was blessed to have been educated by Dr. Tallman who is the first and only doctor who ever took the time to raise my awareness of the affect food has on our health.
“It’s up to you to believe it and take the steps to make it happen.”
I continued to slowly educate myself from there so I could further understand the various steps to take to work towards getting healthy again. Plus, if I happened to slip out of my healing journey I would know how to easily get back. I am still continuously working towards getting healthier. What is the absolute best out of it all though, is that now I can do so many of the things I previously would only dream of and along the way, have discovered tools and lived so many first hand experiences that I am finally able to share and help others along their own journey.
I encourage you
Fight for your health. It has been a long journey and is a continuing lifestyle process but whatever you do, do not give up. A healthier version of your current self is possible. As I always say and strongly believe, it’s up to you to believe it and take the steps to make it happen.
*I forever thank you for taking the time Dr. Tallman. You are not just a doctor, you are a shining example of a human being.
