Our family was in trouble. We had been engaged in a two-year war for my wife’s health, and we were losing. In January of 2013, my wife’s health hit an all-time low. We had spent thousands of dollars on conventional medicine, tried homeopathy and various alternative treatments, but no one was able to diagnose what the problem was – let alone treat it. We were tossed back and forth from specialist to specialist, but we were losing the battle. Her health was rapidly declining and she had lost much weight. She was not able to walk without assistance because of how weak she was. Our family was begging God to provide a miracle and to give us wisdom and strength to fight this unknown problem.
The Lord answered that prayer in the form of a recommendation from a friend. He introduced us to the idea of biological medicine – a foreign concept to us. He shared with us how that the body, with the right nutritional support and cleansing can heal itself, and told us the amazing story of his own daughter that was miraculously helped when no one else could or would do anything. Even though we were skeptical, we decided to give the American Center for Biological Medicine a chance since we had no where else to turn. I believe that recommendation saved the life of my bride.
On April 1, 2013, we made the long journey across the country from Virginia to Arizona. Liz was physically so weak, I had to wheel her through the airports in a wheelchair. We arrived at ACBM the next morning not sure what to expect, but I was doubtful that anything could help my wife. After all, everyone else promised to help and no one did. Over the next two weeks, Drs. Thom and MacCarthy worked diligently to help give us the tools we needed to get the victory.
Under their watchful eye, I watched my wife slowly regain her strength back. There were times that we wanted to quit as the treatments were extremely uncomfortable and tiring, but we pressed on! Her body started to get into a rhythm, and she started to gain some weight back. Her energy levels increased exponentially to the point that on the last day in Scottsdale we play 9 holes of golf! (ok, it was put-put golf but it was 1000% better than having to wheel her around in a wheelchair!)
It has been almost 9 months since we have returned from our time at ACBM. We have had our ups and downs, but overall great progress is being made. Liz has been in frequent contact with Dr. Thom, and he has always been there for us during some difficult hours after we returned home. The follow-up support has been absolutely amazing.
While we are not out of the woods yet, the end is in sight! Life has returned to almost normal. Last Sunday, Liz for the first time in almost two years played the piano in church for the ENTIRE WORSHIP SERVICE! She is slowly beginning to acclimate back to the routines of being a mom again. With God’s help and the assistance of the wonderful staff at ACBM, we hope to be at 100% optimal health in the near future! Thank you for all that you have done for our family.
