I was blessed this week to hear wonderful news from a patient who has been working with me for the last 3 years to rid herself of a persistent Candida problem. Her case was particularly stubborn because it was merely the tip of the iceberg and stemmed from deep rooted trauma. This story is an example that Candida is caused by other factors beside food, birth control pills, and antibiotics. The real reasons are far deeper than that and need to be addressed if the body is to be truly healed.
Her initial iridology exam revealed a dark history from childhood, relating to her father. She pursued this further, working with a psychologist, and it took a full year for memories to start to surface through dreams and flashbacks. Finally, at the age of 35, her long history of childhood sexual abuse could be articulated and its attendant afflictions such as Candida could be dealt with.
This patient has had food sensitivity tests every eight weeks to help cleanse the body of all food sensitivities. She had to do two years of IV’s and chelation therapy with a professional colleague of mine to clear deposits of lead and mercury (even though she removed all mercury filings over 10 years ago). She had these treatments about every 3 weeks for 2 years. I have a photo that shows her covered front and back with a red rash that developed after her first chelation. Many patients panic when this happens, but she and I rejoiced because the rash was an external manifestation – her pain was coming out. Better out than in. All this has lead to a new, improved level of heath.
And there was more great news related to her case: she went for her mammography two weeks ago and they called her back the next day, which generally is not a good sign. They wanted her back for an ultrasound though, because they were confused – in the past she always had about 25 cysts in the left breast but now they could find only 3 little ones. They had never seen changes at this level. She also went to the optometrist to get her eyes checked and was told her vision had improved a couple of points. The optometrist felt this was due to her significant weight loss of 20 pounds.
All in all it was great news and I am glad she is embracing and experiencing a better, healthier, happier life!
