With numerous sensitivities and problems, I was essentially a homeless nomad.
Doctors with plethoras of degrees and certifications from Ivy League schools and facilities (such as Mayo) scratched their head at my case, resulting in a diagnosis of IBS and dysautonomias and a script for benzodiazepines and antidepressants.
I had a laundry list of symptoms (not a full list):
ADHD and focus issues
Appendix pain, hernia pain, UC-type pain, diverticulitis like pain
Body temperature dysregulation
CFS and Fibro pain
Chronic Infections (multiple) and Mold sensitivities
Circadian rhythm issues/Sleep problems/Insomnia
COPD and other lung issues
Environmental intolerance and chemical sensitivities (mold, chemicals, VOCs, haptens)
Gut issues, Dysbiosis, IBS, Malabsorption issues, SIBO
Hearing loss and tinnitus
mTBI and concussions
Muscle spasms and twitches
Renal pain and nocturia
Sensory processing issues - someone would be talking to me while someone is on TV talking to me and I couldn't tell which person was talking
Wounds wouldn't heal
Viral outbreaks (chronic)
Vision loss in right eye (major)
I decided to take my health into my own hands.
I was going to get to the root of my problems and nothing and no one was going to stand in my way.
When doctors were not able to help me, I turned to science to give me the cold hard facts.
Through n=1 self experimentation and scientific data, multiple factors contributed to my health problems (not exclusive list of pathways):
SALI (CIRS derivative)
Thalamic, Hypothalamic, Basal Ganglia, and PFC Grey Matter inflammation/oxidation
I took everything I learned and more and put it into a website to empower others, allowing others to have the information I was deprived of by the many professionals I had seen over my health crisis.
I created this website to help others get their life back to normal and help them unlock their maximum potential.
