you never will believe this!!!

last week we had an appointment for my daughter with a holistic doctor. we showed up for the appointment and the nurse did a full medical review work up and drew a couple vials of blood..then we met tech~amy who was going to to a MSA(Meridian Stress Assessment)..
what? you are asking is a MSA, well.....
The MSA is used to send a slight electrical current into the acupoints on the hands and feet while the patient is holding a slighty damp metal conductor. This painless procedure measures the energetic properties of each meridian by assessing the consistency of the speed at which the current is able to travel through it. These readings indicate to the practitioner whether a meridian is balanced, stressed, weakened, or blocked. The practitioner can use this information to identify which nutritional supplements, homeopathics, herbs or other remedies will help the body restore itself to optimal health.
okay, so the machine is making these star wars type noises and she is going down a list of stuff and she looks at heather and says have you recently been bit by a tick? and we both looked at each other and said OMG!!!!
heather then says yes i had one on the back of my head about 2months ago!! so she does some more testing and then the doctor comes in and says that you have a strain of canine lyme disease and parasites in her stomach!! okay, one thing~GROSS!! but then
2nd thing~omg, why didnt we think ofthat?? all those dogs she comes in contact ..okay long story short, he wrote 2scripts for an antibiotic and another to get rid of the parasites and he told her she will feel worse before she feels better!!! and he was right!! she cannot believe how much better she is feeling!!! everytime we talk we say how we cannot believe what he found!!
so that is that!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow~ That is amazing! All those years the mainstream media poo-pooed holistic health! I think that was because of bid medicine lobbyists....there is such strength in the holistic approach. What great news and I am glad things are looking up!

so glad that she's been diagnosed and is getting better. my sister in law is a naturopath in seattle (should you decide to move and are looking for a new holistic dr. there.)

Beth said...

WOW....a miracle answer with holistic medicine. The same reason I believe in the acupuncturist I saw for my neck pain and migraines....amazing !!

I'm so glad to hear that she is on the mend !!!

THANK GOODNESS!!! I cannot believe a lousy little tick was the cause of all of this, but thank goodness it can all be cleared up with a few prescriptions and she doesn't have to deal with life-long pain! Woo hoo! Love the pic. of you and Julie in the car's mirror by the way. And have you received your journal yet? I guess the holiday might be slowing things down but geez. Love, Shari

And that story is exactly why I switched recently from a traditional kind of doc to one that treats the whole person. So glad she's feeling better, what a relief, huh?

Julie H said...

Oh My... I am so glad that you have found the cause and solution. Who would have thought? don't blame yourself.

Tejae said...

Thank God she's ok! She'll have quite a story to tell her kids one day! What made you decide to take her to a holistic doctor?
