To preface this letter, I must make a couple of statements. 1) I am testifying that
miracles still happen. I truly believe that what happened for me was a miracle.
And 2) prayer works. Prayer and lots of it from all sides works miracles.
I met Dr.
[masked] in the total confusion of what is the Sao Paulo, Brazil
airport. It was April 12, 2012. I was seated in the waiting area for a flight to
Miami. Along came Dr.
[masked] ,who looked exhausted, plopped down beside me.
Only moments before, the seat that this man now occupied, had been occupied
by another weary traveler. Thank God that person had a weak bladder. Here we
were, two bedraggled travelers waiting for an Airbus 330. He looked to be
American. He turned and asked if this was the gate for the Miami flight. I assured
him that I had checked twice and this was, in fact, the proper gate. He looked
quite relieved to be in the right place. I introduced myself and asked what he was
doing so far from home. He was further from home than I had imagined. He had
made a journey from Asia to Argentina to pick up medicinal products. I asked what he did in his clinic.
He confidently noted several amazing treatments and remedies he had accomplished with herbs,
nutraceuticals, enerceuticals and homeopathic remedies. Indeed, this was a passion of mine. I
had read extensively about this area of medicine and treatment. I was intrigued.
I had never met someone who actually practiced in this area of medicine. We had
something in common and we talked until the jet boarded. Just before boarding,
we exchanged cards. I never knew that I would need that card.
A month later, I noted that my left hand had begun to shake when I held
something, anything. This was very distracting because I read a lot. Next, I
started noticing that my left arm and leg were showing weakness during my gym
workouts. The problem persisted and progressed. I visited the massage
therapist and the chiropractor. Nothing seemed to improve or stem the tide of
my degenerating condition. By the first of July, my left hand had become very
weak and I had lost the use of my thumb. I was quickly losing musculature in my
left arm and hand. And the twitching, the annoying muscle twitching never
ceased. The twitching became very noticeable about the first of July. At that
point, one did not have to feel the twitch. One could see my arm twitch. It
started in my left bicep and forearm. It gradually moved to my left shoulder. As
the degeneration continued, the twitching moved to other parts of my body. It
moved across my shoulders and started to move down my right arm by the
middle of July. I diagnosed my problem and concluded the problem must be in
I called and set an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon who had conducted
the last two of my three back surgeries. I met with Dr Birkedal on July 25. He
concluded that I needed neck fusion. However, before we proceeded, he wanted
me to have a nerve test. The nerve test was conducted on July 27. It was
conducted by Dr
[masked]. He seemed concerned. About that time, I started to
notice that the twitch had begun in my left leg. We met again with Dr. Caress on
August 1. He indicated that I probably had ALS. After I was informally diagnosed
with ALS, I began praying.
I must establish that I have always been a very self-reliant person. I have very
seldom asked for help. I learned growing up that you helped yourself and if
something went wrong, you figured it out. Now, I was in the fight of my life and I
needed help. My friends asked what I needed and my only response was-prayer.
I prayed, too-for guidance. That guidance came in a dream and I went looking for
the Doctors Card. I had filed it properly and I found it easily the morning. And
To my surprise, he answered promptly. Thank God, he was in my time zone. We
e-mailed back and forth a few times. We agreed upon a time to call and have a
discussion. We spoke over the phone and discussed my symptoms. He
concluded our conversation by saying that I probably did not have ALS. He said
that I probably had a condition referred to as CTEM. He asked that I get my
records from the aforementioned doctors and send them to him. He said he
needed to evaluate what was in the records and then have another telephone
conversation. I shipped my records to him on August 15. He called me the
morning of August 16. He reaffirmed his former diagnosis. We agreed that he
could help me and I agreed for him to order a package of homeopathic (Hansi)
solutions for my condition. We agreed that I would visit and stay in his vicinity
when the product arrived. My wife and I made plans and traveled to his area on
August 26. As one can see, his response and actual treatment was a very
quick turn-around. It was critical for us to initiate treatments as soon as possible
and we did. I was treated daily for two weeks.
My first two treatments were conducted in my hotel room. He and his assistant
came into our hotel room and conducted the primary treatments. He was
concerned with how I would react to the treatments. Most of his former patients
went to sleep after treatment. He was a very accommodating doctor.
After the initial treatments, I noticed improvements. One of the most noticeable
pretreatment symptoms was the weakness and lack of function in my left hand.
After the second treatment, my thumb strength was noticeably better. And I
could oppose my thumb and ring finger again. Over the two weeks of daily
treatment, many of my symptoms subsided. The physical activities that had been
causing major muscle fatigue, twitching, and pain were not affecting me as much.
I was regaining my strength in many areas. Also, my neck felt a lot better and I
was not planning on neck surgery any more.
All of this was accomplished in a totally holistic manner. He was a great
proponent of whole body and mind healing. He taught us how to have a positive
attitude and meditate. He taught us how to dismiss and not concentrate on
problems. A lot of healing is in the mind. He also trained my wife and me in the
procedures he was conducting. My wife and I were to continue the treatments
once we returned home. Dr.
[masked] and his wife made us feel at home during the whole
Thank you for saving my life and giving me a new outlook on life.
Thank you and your wife for your kind hospitality. You made Nancy and me feel
right at home. I will go forward in life holding your teachings at heart.
