A great letter from a client who decided to make changes

(bolds and links added by Dr. Z)

I'm 47 years old, and I've been sick most of my life. Several years ago I found Dr. Z on the internet, when I was searching for hypoglycemia and digestive help. I filled out his on-line questionnaire, and asked to be added to his mailing list. I began receiving his newsletters on-line, and I recognized myself in many of the letters that he shared.

I've had chronic pain, weight problems, breathing problems, and severe digestive problems (because of Crohn's disease). My intestines would bleed daily, making me anemic. I basically lacked the energy to do anything, and I became increasingly depressed. I was on 12 medications.

Finally I told myself, I'm sick and tired of waking up sick and tired. I need help! I made the trip from New York to California to see him. I met with Dr. Z for ten days in October. He explained that our brains need three things to function properly: adequate oxygen, good nutrition, and stimulation/physical activity. With his help I discovered that I was sensitive to sugars, grains, polyester, most metals, fluorescent lights, chlorine and the formaldehyde used on new fabrics, as well as most of my medications! I was a neurological mess.

Dr. Z prescribed a strict high-protein "Candida/Hypoglycemia" diet with supplements to support digestive function and to combat candida overgrowth. He introduced me to exercises to help improve and balance my brain function. He suggested that I use the Personal Portable Oxygen Bar several times daily at home to help improve the oxygen supply to my brain.

By closely following his instructions, I experienced dramatic results within the first week. The intestinal bleeding, and monster cramps that accompanied it, went away. My constant craving for carbohydrates disappeared. My chronic neck, back, muscle and joint pain and depression subsided! For the first time in a long time I actually felt well enough to exercise.

I noticed improvements in my symptoms each day. Below I've listed some of the symptoms that we were able to turn around in less than two weeks:

  • My intestinal bleeding and severe cramping simply stopped within just 5 days.
  • I had daily headaches, and constant neck and back pain.
  • I used to throw my back out just sneezing or bending over to brush my teeth.
  • I couldn't write numbers or words without transposing the characters. Reading was hard for me.
  • My head and chest were always congested.
  • I wasn't able to lose weight. Instead my weight crept up ten pounds each year, and every year I was forced to buy new clothes.
  • I had terrible foot pain that had me "hobbling" around. My favorite sports and walking for exercise were out of the question.
  • The hypoglycemia had me dizzy, disoriented and passing out, which at one time had caused a severe head injury.
  • I used to have urinary urgency with the occasional accident.
  • I used to have pain in my right lower jaw. Even though I had several teeth pulled, the pain never went away.
  • My eyes were always red and irritated.

I'm very encouraged, and it's all because of a major diet change and some minor lifestyle changes. Dr. Z gave me hope, that I could be happy and healthy without taking a dozen prescriptions every day. If you have a chance to see Dr. Z, I can assure you the visit would be worthwhile.

For Your Health to Change - You Must Change!

For Your Health to Change - You Must Change!

This seems obvious, to me at least. You must take full responsibility. There are many people, however, who want the "Silver bullet".

Actually, we are brainwashed into believing that silver bullets do exist. Simply notice the constant bombardment in TV advertising by the pharmaceutical companies. There seems to be a pill for just about any health problem under the sun. The potential and often rather severe side effects mentioned briefly at the end of the ads speak of a very different reality.

There is no Silver Bullet!

When Donna arrived, she was on 12 medications, and getting worse.

I told her that my job as a doctor was not to heal her. I told her that the word "doctor" means "teacher".

My job as her doctor:

  • to teach her what kind of changes she might want to do to allow her body to heal
  • to monitor her progress over a period of time
  • to recommend further changes as needed
  • to encourage her to stay the course

Well, Donna was ready to make changes. She knew with certainty that what she had tried over the years did not work. She faithfully followed my recommendations. She changed, her health improved, her outlook on life dramatically improved.

When she left, she had, by her own choice, decreased her daily medications from twelve to two. She was determined to find a way to discontinue the remaining two medications.

How to Begin

Always start with your SELF

  • Your lack of health is NOT due to medication deficiency
  • Always start with the basics
  • Do you breathe deeply enough, do you get enough oxygen?
  • Are you physically active?
  • What do you eat and drink and snack?
  • How is your digestion?
  • What is your history with antibiotics and other medications?

The Solution

The solution: you take full responsibility

If you cannot come personally - - - -

1. Our on-line Self Evaluation is geared towards giving you a basic starting point in order to make some intelligent changes in diet and improve some basic human functions such as digestion, blood sugar control.

If you have ever taken antibiotics, yesterday or 30 years ago - the chances are high that you may suffer the consequences of bowel flora imbalance and candida overgrowth.

2. Adequate Oxygen is of vital importance, more so as we grow older.

You may want to consider purchasing the Personal Portable Oxygen Bar. This is a wonderful unit that has helped many of my friends and clients become more aware of the importance and benefits of deep breathing.
