My Health Story Part 3: The Answer To My Craziness

I want to clarify that I don’t believe people who are depressed are crazy! There is a true thing of depression that can come from chemicals taken inwardly, or a chemical imbalance in our bodies. There are natural things to do for depression too. But this post isn’t about depression, so I won’t go into that now.

So here I was trying to live my days with extreme fatigue, having a hard time doing daily tasks, and feeling like I’m some astronaut floating in outer space anytime I went somewhere. And 3 different doctors have told me that I’m perfectly fine and healthy!  

This really started making me feel like I was crazy or a hypochondriac and imagining these things, but I thought I had a sound mind! So as I said before, I started really praying! Do you ever have something really important to pray about, but you just offer small petitions to God instead of really doing some serious praying? Well, this got serious enough for me that I was begging God for an answer!  

The Answer To My Craziness

The answer came soon after when I was speaking to a lady about my situation. I had talked to this same lady before but this time, she recalled someone that also had symptoms that doctors couldn’t explain. She gave me her name and I immediately looked her up and explained what I was going through. This lady told me about a certain chiropractor who was able to help her feel like a new person. I called this chiropractor’s office and made an appointment with “Dr. Sunshine”. I will never forget his name since he definitely brought “sunshine” in my life by making me feel better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dr. Sunshine is a “natural” chiropractor. He is a practicing chiropractor but is also very knowledgeable about supplementing. When I explained my symptoms at my first appointment, he knew what to do.  

Finally! I had found a doctor that didn’t think I was crazy or depressed! What a load lifted off my shoulders!  

What was his diagnosis?  

I was very depleted of nutrients!  

God made our bodies very complex, and they need certain “vital” nutrients to function. When we lack in these nutrients, our bodies go haywire! A variety of symptoms can happen, and nothing can make us truly feel better except replenishing ourselves. What Dr. Sunshine did was took different vitamins, minerals, and nutritional supplements and tested me to see what I was lacking in.  

What did I take?  

I don’t remember! 

I really wish I did, but up to this point I knew nothing of supplements and natural things, so all the names were foreign – not something my brain remembered.  I called Dr. Sunshine’s office to see if they still had my records, but unfortunately my records have been shredded.  

 {UPDATE! I recently found the paper from Dr. Sunshine in storage with my diagnosis! Read what it was here!}

I took these supplements and began to feel better within a few weeks. I took them for about a total of 4 months. When we replenish ourselves, it’s not a quick fix like popping a pill in our mouth and covering up symptoms. Remember how long I took antibiotics every day?  For 6 years!  I can’t expect to fix something in a short time that took 6 years to mess up. It’s a slower process as our body balances and heal themselves. 

I still have liver problems that I struggle with from the many years I took the medicine, but I’ve been able to live a normal life since I replenished my body with what it needed to function.

    great information. being prone to anemia and it is usually worse during pregnancy, i can definitely tell when i’ve forgotten to take my iron—usually by lunch. and vitamins/ supplements HAVE to be taken daily (or at recommended times) for at least 2-3 weeks before you can really tell their effect {if you are a moderately healthy person to begin with}. i’m glad you found that doctor back then!

    So glad you found a good dr.! You are so right: God created our bodies to be balanced with other things that He created. My father-in-law was having lots of health issues, and still does to an extent. We have been encouraging him to use natural things to heal, but it’s hard when you’re used to getting a “quick fix” that covers the symptoms and healing can take a much longer time! He has been taking some of our advice and looks and feels better than he has in years. =)
