"I had never felt so sick in my life. An ER visit for blurry vision landed me in the hospital for a week on high doses of Prednisone and an optic neuritis diagnosis. Leaving the hospital I remained very ill with many symptoms including but not limited to: zero energy, nausea, diarrhea, anxiety, rashes, thrush, joint pain, weight loss (25 pounds in 6 weeks). I saw multiple doctors and specialists - the last which was a rheumatologist who looked me in the eye and told me I was very healthy, but I had depression. He prescribed me anti-depressants.
After being tested, I found that my body had some sensitivities as well as an immune system challenge. When I initially started healing, it was difficult; but within a week I was able to eat my first meal of solid foods in about two months. It was a process, but as I approach my one year anniversary as a patient of Dr. Lipton I feel more blessed than ever to have met him and his staff. I feel better than I have in a long time. I hate to think where I would be without his help."
