My GastroIntestinal issues relieved by RIFE
My life was at a low point before I came across Healing Roots Acupuncture. This a long review but I want others to truly understand what Terry accomplished in my life. My life changed on December 23, 2018, where my body came across a viral infection that attacked my stomach. My symptoms began in February of 2019, a flare-up of my left side underneath my rib cage. I lost about 12 pounds in a month because everything I ate flared me up. My health started deteriorating, my Primary Care Provider could not figure out what was the issue. She then came to the conclusion that I had Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, I then requested a referral to a Gastroenterologist to see if there was anything abnormal in my abdomen.
The Gastroenterologist suggested we do both a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy, that is what we did in September 2019. The results came back negative, everything was fine in both the EGD and the Colonoscopy. The doctor did find inflammation and I ended up doing an H. Pylori Urea Breath test. The test did not detect any Helicobacter Pylori and while that was good my abdomen problem got worse. I started flaring up not only from my left side but also my right as well. I was then tested for Lactose Intolerance and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth(SIBO) in December 2019, that also came back negative. That was the last time I saw my Gastroenterologist, the last exams he ordered came in May of 2020. I received more blood work which checked for blood counts, liver enzymes, kidney enzymes, pancreatic enzymes and inflammatory markers which were all again within normal limits. I also received a CT Scan on May 2020 which showed no abnormalities.
Starting on August of 2020, I started seeing both a Urologist and Dermatologist regarding a penile issue. After multiple creams and exams of my bladder and penis, no root of the issue could be identified. These doctors could not diagnose me with anything except Eczema. Meanwhile, through all of this, my ability to eat drastically changed. I could not eat the food that I used to eat. I come from a Latino household, rice and beans is part of our regular diet and my body could digest any of it. It was around this time that I started noticing that I could not gain any weight and it was easy for me to lose it. I became depressed, I did not leave my house. Even though Covid was going around I had no interest in meeting with friends. My hobbies became movies and TV Shows.
I decided to look for alternatives outside of the medical system early in February of 2021. I began seeing a Naturopathic Doctor, he at least stabilized my condition, but he did not know how to improve it. About a month before e-mailing Terry I got introduced to an UK NAET practitioner in a forum. She listened to my story and suggested that I look for a NAET practitioner in the states. I looked through the NAET web page and came across Healing Roots Acupuncture.
My treatment mainly focused on Rife Technology, something that I had never heard of before. I was treated very professionally during my treatment sessions, to the point where I did not consider them appointments. I considered, and still do, Terry and Lilly like family. Their clinic is located a bit far from me and they worked their schedule around mine. Terry did not have to do this for me but that showed me the passion that she has to help people. I can gladly say that my life has come to a point where I did not think it would come to again. I am eating rice and beans again, something that I had not done in 1 1/2 years. I have gained weight, something that I could not do for 2 years. My body began to heal after the RIFE treatment and is still healing. What Standard Medicine could not do for me in 2 1/2 years Terry has done in a few months. In my opinion, overall, one of the top medical clinics in Massachusetts. If you are looking for someone to help you with your condition, if you are feeling hopeless, then I strongly recommend visiting Healing Roots Acupuncture.
