Early in life, as an immigrant to this country, I learned that I am the pilot of my “own plane” and its’ destination is determined only by me. As a young adult I suffered an acute cardiac episode that changed my life forever. I was determined not to let stress, anxiety and fatigue or depression control my life. The key to success was “showing up for my Life”.
Anxiety can happen at any time in one’s life. If you decide not to treat the anxiety it will resurface in your later years. The psychosomatic occurrence of anxiety is repeatedly accompanied by physical symptoms, such as high blood pressure, heavy breathing, muscle strain, disrupted sleep, and gastrointestinal pain. Imagine getting up at 3:00am and not feeling the left side of your body. Realizing your eyebrows and fingers are numb. Feeling a tingling session on your left arm and lips.
This is what happened to me at the age of 37. I had suffered an acute cardiac episode that altered my entire live. The untreated anxiety had also caused me to lose my coping mechanisms and feel stuck. My doctor prescribed medication to calm my nervous.
Two years later, when I was not getting better, he increased my dosage. For the next decade I suffered from the following symptoms: Changes in sleeping pattern, increased appetite, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, irritability, muscle pain, irritable Bowel, feeling unfocused and loss of concentration. Frustrated, I finally hit a breaking point. I just did not know what to do.
My husband had gone to see Dr. Pat Salvitti to treat his back pain. During one of his sessions with Dr. Pat, he told her about my symptoms and the mini stroke I had suffered. Dr. Pat said; please have her make an appointment with me. Dr. Pat put me on Prodovite (Not probiotics) for my digestive system and an elimination diet, SPM Active for inflammation of my joints and muscle tension and Brain Reward for focus and concentration.
All three of these products helped me with my gut, lowered my high blood pressure and unclogged my brain. This coupled with treatment, deep breathing exercise, and the elimination diet. All saved my life thanks to Dr. Pat.
A year later, I am healthy, full energy, alert and my gut is clean from toxins. At the age of 50, I feel 15 years younger. This journey took me 13 years since my acute stroke. It is hard to believe that my body was crumbling due to food allergies and lack of key nutrients that caused my gut to bloat and store unwanted toxins. My brain was cloudy due to all the toxins my gut was storing and this caused my blood pressure to rise. I felt irritated, tired, low energy and depressed. Yet, the doctor diagnosed me as being anxious. By the doctor not finding the cause of my symptoms, I was getting worse every year. I am blessed that Dr. Pat introduced me to Prodovite, SPM Active and Brain Reward or else you would be reading a different story about my life.
I’ve now left my six figure salary and work with Dr. Pat to help others help themselves. The first step in knowing your body and listening to the symptoms is educating yourself. Please do not wait 13 years to realize that you are destroying your body and mind. I am blessed that my life was saved and I was able to make the transition to a better health, mind and spirit. Today I am the Director of the Brain Kick Start Program with Dr, Patricia Salvitti, BS, DC for the Media Wellness Center in Media, PA.
