In April 2009, I went to a walk-in clinic and I was given an antibiotic for a bladder infection. I had a really bad allergic reaction from the antibiotic. I had instant insomnia and after 4 days of not sleeping went to the ER. I was given medications to help me sleep and they sent me home. I got worse and worse and suddenly was not able to eat almost anything.
I was only able to eat boiled meats and steamed veggies with butter. I ate the same six foods every day for months. In three months my weight went from 146 lbs to 119 lbs. I only got out of bed to go to the bathroom. I had to leave my job and my husband had to work from home to take care of me. I couldn’t do anything for myself – I was so weak.
In July 2009, after going from doctor to doctor and not getting any help a friend who had been to Dr. Debra Gaffney told me about her. I decided to give her a try. It was a 90 minute drive to see her and I will say it was so worth it. From the very beginning, Dr. Gaffney was wonderful, so kind and so compassionate. I have never heard of her treatment but thought it really made sense. She ran a test to see what my body was sensitive to and we found out my body was sensitive to everything, so that is why I feel like I was at death’s door.
Well after the very first treatment I felt almost like my old self. I was absolutely amazed and so was my family. I continued on with all the treatment and found I was getting better and better. I was up and out of bed and I was eating more and more foods every day. I was able to go off the medication for sleep and finally get to sleep on my own. Today I weigh 138 lbs and I can say I am thrilled to have my life back. I will never forget Dr. Gaffney. She is my angel and there is not a day that goes by that I don’t appreciate the day I met her.
