Chronic Pain Eludes Conventional Medicine's Gold Standard of Treatment
When a patient presents with a chief complaint of chronic pain from head to toe, you know you have been given an extraordinary challenge. This was the case with Priscilla. Reviewing her medical history showed a preponderance of yes answers to many of the questions, which makes it even more difficult to decipher her causes for the pain. Priscilla's broad spectrum of yes answers was overlaid with the fact that medical treatment focused on alleviating her symptoms with steroids. A "magic" bullet used by most conventionally trained physicians, which over the long haul will compromise her immune system and overall health.
One key factor was that many of Priscilla's symptoms related to an under active thyroid. In addition, she owns a farm with the potential exposure of many chemicals. The big advantage of using Quantum Testing Technique (QTT) is that it quickly enables triaging the patient to diagnose the core issues. This QTT approach is extremely accurate in pinpointing the exact location of specific toxins, pathogens, heavy metals, etc. whereas conventional blood tests do not give you these answers.
QT testing revealed hypothyroidism, which was being caused by the presence of Epstein Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, Lyme, mercury, glyphosate and one other pesticide in the thyroid. Also her liver had a high concentration of glyphosate, and mercury; she also had glyphosate in both hands and Lyme in both knees and an oral pH, which was too acidic.
Eight months of nutritional therapy was effective in reducing the body's burden of the above mentioned "splinters" or initiators. The end result was that Priscilla stated that she was 90% to 95% out of pain. Interestingly, the Center for Disease Control's data center notes 15,000 deaths in 2018 were attributed to opioid prescriptions. This scourge is another indicator that our medical system is broken. Our medical system has been dumbed down to treat pain by masking the symptom rather than uncovering the causes.
