“I captured my temperature in one cycle. I am 95% cured” – Samantha
…In January of 1996, my symptoms had progressed so much that I couldn’t eat or drink anything without some form of a sensitivity. For three weeks straight, I drank only ginger ale because I was so terrified. My old family doctor wanted to take me off my T4 because he thought that I was getting hyperthyroid. He was wrong but I was still terrified. I thought that I was dying. My compulsion to avoid food lead to obsessive compulsive disorder.
I had full blown OCD. I remember the horror I faced inside myself when I was told I had to take medication. I would break out in a sweat, my heart would race. I wished I could die but I was terrified by the thought of death. I was sensitive to almost every medication that I took.
My present family doctor decided that we had to deal with the fear of medicine first. Without overcoming my OCD, I could not progress further in treatment. We started cognitive therapy, Paxil (for the panic attacks) and I saw an environmental specialist who discovered my fourteen food and drug sensitivities. (In fact the T4 that I was taking had phenol in it. I am very sensitive to phenol.)
Dr. Mickelson used VEGA testing to discover my sensitivities. It measures skin resistance by using a metal probe. It is completely non-invasive. This helped me immensely in accepting my condition. Once I avoided the things that triggered negative reactions, I felt so much better. That started me on the road to recovery. I had my OCD under control in about two months. I still had some physical symptoms of Wilson’s. But on the whole I felt so good.
Last summer I decided that the new T4 just wasn’t helping for very long. That’s when Dr. M. decided that I try T3. I started my first and only cycle (I captured my temperature in one cycle. It has been normal for five months now.)
Initially, I was still apprehensive about the treatment. But as I applied my cognitive therapy I soon realized that the strange twitches I was feeling were there before I ever started T3. My doctors and research confirmed that T3 is naturally present in our bodies since birth. We have always had it in us. It is not a drug that is foreign to our bodies. It is a God-send.
I am overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude to T3 and Dr. Wilson’s treatment. Without it, I would still be living in that hell I used to call my life. Now I am so happy, so alive. I am 95% cured. And with treatment I bet you can be too.
God bless and I hope that I have helped in some small way.
