The Invisible Person: A Story of Autoimmune Disease & Chronic Illness
The Invisible Person:
A Story of Autoimmune Disease & Chronic Illness
“I wanted to die. I didn’t even feel human.”
“I knew that feeling so numb I was unable to get out of bed wasn’t normal.”
““Good news!” the doctor says, and you feel your heart sink into your stomach
“All the tests came back normal!”
“I just changed out of pajamas into more pajamas.”
“I have Hashimotos and I currently take Levothyroxine, Topomax, Omeprazole, Celexa, Metformin, and Trazodone. I’ll have moments where I’ll look at my child saying, ‘Mom,’ and be like, ‘Who are you?’ Look at my best friend and think she’s someone else. Or think I’m someone else. I feel like I’m losing my mind. It’s like I’m not myself anymore.”
This is just a cross-section of the Invisible disease horror story. The National Institute of Health (NIH) estimates 23.5 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease, however, the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association estimate it’s closer to 50 million. There may be many, many more, in fact, who don’t know that they have an autoimmune disease or chronic illness and are instead just treating their symptoms at different multiple doctors, (i.e. when a patient is depressed about his/her condition and sees a psychiatrist for an antidepressant.)
There are over 100 different types of autoimmune disorders and many people have the horrible luck of having multiple illnesses. In fact, having one makes it almost certain to cause another to develop.
Scientific studies show terrifying survival rates, but surviving these diseases is more terrifying than succumbing, according to many sufferers. Mainstream conventional medicine doesn’t know what to do with them, even Endocrinologists don’t always have the answers and it’s frustrating and worrisome to both doctor and patient.
At Angel Longevity Medical Center, we offer up Functional Medicine as an answer to Chronic Illness and Autoimmune Disease. Our overseeing doctor, Dr. Anju Mathur, has a very successful holistic, integrative and comprehensive approach to get to the root cause of the illness. The patient’s history will be very revelatory, along with a series of cutting edge tests, and an evaluation of all organ systems of the body including the gastrointestinal system, cardiovascular system, nervous system, immune system and hormonal system.
These factors play a huge role in autoimmune and chronic illness:
Essential nutrient deficiencies and an inability to assimilate nutrients
Toxicity due to environmental chemicals or heavy metals
Stress in one or more areas of one’s life
This complex invisible illness causes such things as chronic pain, fatigue, sleep deprivation, migraines, diarrhea and constipation, depression, anxiety, memory loss, weight gain, extreme weight loss, and more.
Dr. Mathur is a specialist who gets to the root cause of these illnesses with natural, integrative, minimally invasive IV therapies, nutritional programs including metabolic typing, food allergy tests, a combination of Eastern/Western supplements and Bioidentical Hormones.
It is no wonder there is such a large magnitude of chronic disease and it’s becoming more prevalent every day. We, in America, are subject to 250 pounds of chemical toxins and pollutants per person every day. We willingly ingest, slather on, or subject ourselves in some way to 8-12 personal chemical items before even eating breakfast.
We also unwittingly subject ourselves to toxins in vaccines which the CDC claims are “safe” and “effective.” Their effectiveness appears to be more sinister and pernicious, as results show, they affect the human body in a debilitating way, not in an immunity.
A man called our clinic asking for help. His wife was paralyzed from the chest down. She’d been working on a highly stressful, highly toxic environment, the prison system. She was required to get the Hepatitis B shot in order to continue her contract with the prison. After the shot, the insidious happened. She was paralyzed.
In July of 2017, A woman came to Angel Longevity because her daughter didn’t want her to receive radiation and chemotherapy as a treatment for her cervical cancer. After only five months of treatment at Angel Longevity, her new cancer screening came up negative, no recurrence of cancer. See her video success story here.
Patients routinely find strength, comfort, pain relief, energy and a return of Quality of Life here due to the genius and true help of Dr. Anju Mathur, Dr. Shirin Rahmini and their recommended treatment protocols.
