I owe it all to that wonderful doctor
Here's an inspiring success story from Roz: (Email us your story!)
My name is Roz and I was diagnosed 30 years ago with Crohn's disease and colitis, I also was in severe pain, throwing up and having no control over my bowels. I was told then that I would need to have a large portion of my intestine removed because of a near blockage and a fistula. I had known back then of this way of living and eating and fasting and opted to by pass the doctor's treatment and did my first fast at one of the certified fasting practitioners. My disease was put in remission and the scar tissue in the intestine had flaked away opening up the area and the blockage was no longer. The fistula closed and I was educated on eating a vegetarian diet. Since then I have fasted at many institutes throughout the United States. However I have continually had periodic inflammation in my blood, suffered from acute depression all my life, was listless and continued eating dairy products and junk foods from the health stores. I continued having a weight problem. I may have developed some serious health conditions down the road with some of these conditions if I had not had a terrible relapse a few years ago.
At that time I developed more severe pain than I had 30 years ago and the doctors said I would have to go on drugs or I would be in serious trouble. My sedimentation rate of my blood skyrocketed.
Prior to this event in my life, the depression had gotten so out of hand I was suffering on a daily basis and was not able to perform even the simplest of tasks. I contacted Dr. Fuhrman whom I had gone to and worked with occasionally when I lived closer to his office. He immediately ran some tests and put me on supplements, one of which was DHA. I had never taken any supplements in my life and the first month I did not notice a change but one day I realized how great I was functioning. From that day to this I have not experienced any depression and this is the longest ever in my life I have not. It is several years that I have felt wonderfully free from this debilitating emotional illness.
So when this crisis came about with the Crohn's and colitis I called Dr. Fuhrman for his advise. During our consult he advised me to try some fasts at home under his watchful supervision and with monitoring my blood. This began the transformation of my health and my life. I have been continuing regular fasts at home under his care and have become a vegan. Something I never dreamed I could do. With his help I have found new recipes and new ways of cooking and preparing delicious meals that are so satisfying and so healthy. He has also taught me why certain foods are beneficial which makes eating more healthful easier. This has become a lifestyle I will never give up. The pain went away. In fact one doctor who tested me prior to me working with Dr. Fuhrman actually told me I needed to have my gall bladder removed. Thank God I did not listen to that one. I feel wonderful. No pain. Have energy. Lost all my weight. My sed rate has dropped considerably although I have to be monitored on a regular basis to keep it down. I continue to take periodic fasts under Dr. Fuhrman's care and continue to see positive results on a regular basis. And then there is that wonderful forum where I get support from others who follow the Eat to Live lifestyle. I cannot say enough great things about the care and concern Dr. Fuhrman has for not only myself but for everyone he works with. I am blessed and I am grateful for I have been given and real golden opportunity to live out the rest of my life in the highest level of health possible. And I owe it all to that wonderful doctor. Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
