“I got off 15 Rx medications!”
Lying in bed, too drained to get up, Shannon recounted all the ways her weakening health had robbed her of independence. She could no longer hold a job, take care of her house or socialize with friends. I just want to get better, she thought. I just want the pain to go away.
For years, Shannon struggled with mysterious fatigue and health issues, including chronic strep, slow thyroid and stomach pains. Doctors didn’t know what was wrong but kept prescribing medications—15 in all. “Being sick is a long, lonely journey,” she says. “I can recall plenty of times when I lost hope.”
Learning about Anthony William’s
Medical Medium books was a turning point. Shannon discovered she had hidden Epstein-Barr virus that was contributing to her health issues. She began eating healing fruit and veggies and drinking celery juice and a detox smoothie every day.
Within the first week, Shannon’s fatigue began to lift. Soon she shed 80 pounds, and for the first time in a decade, felt her strength build as her thyroid symptoms vanished.
Her doctor was amazed. “She told me how impressed she was that I’d gotten better so quickly,” says
Shannon, who is now off all her medications.
“Honestly, I never thought
I’d get well.
Now I’m living my best life!”
