I was always the type of person who would occasionally take a One-a-Day brand multivitamin and / or a vitamin C supplement. That’s about as far as I would go with respect to Nutritional supplements, let alone "Alternative Remedies" for what ever ailments or health problems I might encounter. I simply saw alternatives as little more than a placebo. If I got sick, I went to the family MD. I would take my prescribed medicine and that's it. Likewise, other than my own immune system and typical shelf remedies ...Standard Medicine ...was the only other line of defense I had for my health.
I experienced a type of ache I had never had before
So in June of 1993 when my legs felt like letting go and, I became so light headed that I thought I would soon pass out, the inside of my head felt like it was in a fog, I lost the energy necessary to perform my daily routine, and this all came upon me within a 24 hour period of time. My muscles in my upper and lower legs as well as my arms ached constantly, a type of ache I had not ever experienced before.
The MD took my temperature and blood pressure. He could not detect a temperature increase despite the fact I felt very feverish. About my blood pressure, he said it was borderline high and he asked if I wanted to go on Blood Pressure medication. I declined to take BP pills but I did get blood tests done.
The tests were negative except for the fact that I had elevated enzymes in my liver. A subsequent CAT scan of my liver (months later) revealed a moderate amount of fatty tissue had developed there.
My doctor suggested that my symptoms could be psychosomatic.
After reading the test my family MD (doctor one) recommended that I go on a diet. As for my other problems (none of which his tests could detect) he suggested that they "could all be psychosomatic" I didn’t go on much of a diet because I couldn’t find reliable information as to what might work for me. Meanwhile, days later, I felt a little better. I was functional, but definitely not par.
I began to experience more bad days than good ones.
My condition persisted until early September when I began to experience more bad days than good ones. I had developed a constant bloated feeling, nausea, and irritation in my abdomen, as well as severe heartburn. The fog feeling in my head was such that I could barely concentrate. I literally had to force myself to comprehend what someone was saying to me while in a conversation. The condition continued on and on. I eventually ended in the doctors (Dr. two’s) office who insisted that I had "Irritable bowel syndrome." ...and possibly that the symptoms "were in my head." ..my own instincts were telling me that this was not normal.
I experienced a fog, no energy, a feverish feeling and muscle aches.
My story can be a rather lengthy account of my two years trek to find out what was making me feel light headed, like I was in a fog, having no energy, developing a feverish feeling and muscle aches in both upper and lower legs as well as my arms.
I felt heart palpitation and knots in my chest.
This condition persisted ...along with constant bloated feeling, nausea, and irritation in my abdomen, as well as severe heartburn and ringing in my ears. I could barely concentrate ...at times I would feel paranoid and mildly depressed. Then one night while leaving a party, I felt a heart palpitation so strong that I lost my breath. I collapsed to my knees and I started to feel most of the other symptoms returning. I also felt a knot in my chest. My fear of course was that I was experiencing a heart attack.
Epstein-Barr or Chronic Fatigue
Can you believe ...all this after visiting five different doctors, each one of them helping very little ...and finally telling me that there was nothing, they could do for me ...and suggested that my symptoms "must be in my head" ...that they "could all be psychosomatic." Well, here is the long and the short of it ...as I was in the Doctors (Dr. four’s) office with my ear problems, I shared my story with the doctor’s nurse who promptly asked me, "have you ever been tested for Epstein-Barr. You sound like you have the symptoms that my husband does. Sure enough, That was the root of all my ailments ...Epstein-Barr virus ...Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ...Fibromyalgia ...Candidis.
I now have my life back.
About that time, a friend of mine told be about some natural products she was taking that enabled her to live a normal life by simply staying on a daily regiment of what she called "Life Changing Products." That was about five years ago ...and because of the Aloe Pure 5000, ComPlex 50 Plus, and ProEnzyme from Healthy Systems™ ...I now have my life back.
I genuinely feel better and have more energy!
The life changing products I refer to are products from ...Healthy Systems™ ..they have without a doubt changed my life. I am now not only back to normal, I have more energy than I did before my plight began. I have never gone on a diet but I am now about 40 pounds lighter and it has stayed off. I am now in my late 40’s ...people who have known me for a while, all say I look better than ever. I genuinely feel better and I have more energy.
Finally, I am sometimes asked the question, "Gary, aren’t you hooked on supplements?" Answer: Only if you would call needing food and water everyday being hooked. We are all hooked on basic human needs. Our health and things that contribute to our health are at the core of those needs.
