On My Way to Health

by Natalie

Dear Melissa,

I just wanted to say "thank you" for building this site. I too have been told there isn't anything wrong with me by doctors and made to feel that it is all in my head.

Two months ago I left the doctors office in tears because my body was saying "there is something wrong" and the doctor just handed me a prescription for two antibiotics and a pain killer (which I must say made me so violently ill I couldn't function for a week) and shoved me out the door.

I have since become worse and my body is now screaming "THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG HERE!!!" I know a fair amount about natural health and so I decided to buy some pH strips and test my pH levels. It was at 5.5! But I didn't really know what that meant.

So I did a search online and came across your site. It was very helpful and gave me the right information I needed to answer the question "what's wrong with me?" I have so many of the symptoms of acidosis. But I now have piece of mind knowing that I can turn this around and I don't have to continue living with the pain and fatigue forever.

I am a 34 year old stay-at-home-mom of 3 and 5 year old boys. I am to the point where I can hardly get out of bed each day and I am too tired to even care about anything. That has caused a horrible cycle of not cooking and eating healthy foods because I am too tired, which makes myself and my family even more "sick". I am now on my way to health! Thank you, thank you for sharing and being a support and resource for others.




Hi Natalie,

Thank you very much for such a wonderful email. It really touched me deep down to the core.

Your message gave me flashbacks of what I used to be like - what I used to feel like.

I know exactly what you are going through. Some people think you're crazy...others think you are just plain lazy. They just don't understand how hard it is to function...to do the simplest tasks.

There was a point where I felt like I needed to literally hibernate. No matter how much sleep I would get, it never felt like enough. I'd wake up just as tired as when I went to bed. It was so frustrating.

But I turned myself around. So can you.

When people are as acidic as you are, alkaline supplements really start getting things going in the right direction.

Consider doing a full body detox too. That will also help to alkalize you.

Once you start getting some of your energy back, then it becomes easier to eat right and exercise.

Wishing you a speedy recovery,
