I have just returned from four and a half weeks at the Sanoviv Medical Institute on the Baja coast in Mexico.. www.sanoviv.com
I have had lyme disease since January, 2001. I was on antibiotics for 2 ½ years. I continued to suffer from fatigue, foggy head and excruciating pain in my left shoulder blade.
While searching on the web for an intergrative hospital, I came across Sanoviv. Sanoviv is just how it looks and sounds on its website. I found the doctors to be highly skilled and caring.
I underwent extensive diagnostic testing and evaluation during the first 3 days.
The therapy which was designed for me was basically focused on detoxifying my body and boosting my immune system.. My treatments consisted of the following:
High doses of Vitamin C, EDTA (chelation therapy) DMSO, IV Glutathione and ,
Multi vitamins and minerals
Injectable homeopathic-isopathic remedies
Psycho-spiritual program (meditation, visualization and relaxation)
My amalgams were removed improperly over the last ten years and I was full of heavy metal toxins.
I had with me xrays of my spine which I?d had taken in November while I was in New Zealand. The Dr. who had previously read these xrays said that my spine showed no abnormalities. I decided that I would show my doctor at Sanoviv these xrays as I was nearing the end of my stay and felt a whole lot better but still was having constant pain in my shoulder blade.
They ordered an MRI and noticed important spondilolistesis of C5 over C6, disc protrusion of C6-C7, chronic degenerative disease in T4, T5, T6, T7 and T8.
I felt very confident with the Orthopedic and Neurosurgeon assigned to my case and underwent the procedure of a fusion of C5-C6, application of Casper plate and left iliac bone graft placement.
I was out of bed and walking the following morning after the 5 hour surgery.
I am now back home wearing a super neck brace. I will start physiotherapy soon .
I am truly grateful for having found Sanoviv on the Web and for being able to go and be treated by their fantastic staff.
I thought that I would like to share my experience with all of you on Lymenet. I am very hopeful that the quality of my life will be much improved once my spine has healed.
I am sending all my healing thoughts your way.
