Here at Longevity, our mission is to love God and serve people, and we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this story of our sweet patient, Lydia, as told by her mom, April. 

 

I am writing to share our story because I want anyone who reads this to find hope in what was, for us, a very hard road. When we arrived at Longevity Health Center, we had already sought help from a pediatric neurologist, pediatrician, two play therapists, two urgent care offices and two hospitals. Our daughter had taken 37 courses of antibiotics and had been given a prescription for psychiatric medication. We were prepared to have her start kindergarten in a special class because we did not feel she would be able to function in a mainstream classroom. 

Today, she is a thriving first grader who is being considered for the gifted program in second grade.

Our first appointment At Longevity was in May of 2019. I expressed concern about school starting in August and asked for documentation so we could get special assistance through the school. Without hesitation, Dr. Anderson said, “that gives us three months. I don’t think you will need help from the school.”  It seemed laughable at the time, but he was right.  

Here is how our journey started: Lydia had attended preschool at 3 and 4 years old and loved it. Very abruptly she started having severe separation anxiety. “Severe” in that my four year old would not get more than 3 feet away from me. She would not go to the bathroom alone, she did not even like to be far apart in the same room when she could see me. It seemed overnight, she started talking about death. She feared that I would die after dropping her off at preschool and at a very low point she walked through our house and said to my husband, “Daddy, can we hang up some more pictures of me so that you will remember me after I die.” Again, she was only 4 years old.

Trouble continued. She developed a twitch or tic in her eye. She became terrified in groups of people and had several panic attacks. She was unable to use the bathroom outside of our house and had multiple OCD-like behaviors.

Lydia repeatedly tested positive for strep throat and eventually had her tonsils removed. I would ask doctors for an antibiotic because she always showed improvement that we didn’t understand on antibiotics, and then the behaviors would return as soon as she finished the round.  

We were in a vicious cycle of taking medication to control symptoms, but never had any answers. One day, after a strep diagnosis that caused regression of all the behaviors, our play therapist suggested that we might look into PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections). I had only heard of this once and had never thought of it again.  

I did research and then started asking around for a doctor to help. We made an appointment with a top specialist in Washington D.C., but it was a 6-month waiting list to get to see the doctor. While we waited, I continued to ask around and heard about Longevity. I did this more or less, to be proactive and try something while we waited to see the PANDAS specialist. I never imagined we would cancel the appointment in Washington D.C. because we no longer needed to go after the help we got through Longevity.  

I entered our first appointment as a skeptic to say the least. In fact, when we left the office, I said to my husband “This is crazy and we are not doing any of it.”  He looked at me and said, “We are desperate and we are trying all of it.”  

We started to see significant improvement just one week after our initial visit. Several things happened: Lydia slept through the night and was able to get her face wet (which was major). We knew there was a change, but random acquaintances could see it too. It was a dramatic difference.

Here is what I found most interesting. We were still preparing to go to the PANDAS specialist and so I was gathering medical records and recording outlines of Lydia’s health history. As I started putting it all together, the very things that showed in the testing at Longevity started to make sense. I was finding medical documentation to support the protocol that we were doing through Longevity.  

Today, we see a pediatrician who fully supports our work with Longevity.  My daughter, the same one who was constantly sick along with all of the behavioral symptoms, just survived a flu outbreak at our school as one of the few students who did not get sick! I believe this is largely because we now have a protocol to start immediately when we see signs of sickness or compromised immunity.  

On our first visit, we were told “we are going to help your family heal.” That is exactly what happened.  We have seen the transformation in our daughter and we have all found so much joy in seeing her thrive beyond our wildest expectation. I cannot say thank you enough to the Longevity team, to Dr. Anderson and to Cristina McMullen. 

Whenever I meet a family in a similar place that we found ourselves, I suggest that they make the drive (we travel two hours each way) and get to Longevity. For us it has been absolutely life changing. I want other parents to know that there is hope that their life can return to normal, and that their child can thrive.

Here at Longevity, our mission is to love God and serve people, and we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this interview with our wonderful patient, Amy, who has experienced freedom from disease and a tremendous improvement in her quality of life.

What were your primary health concerns starting at our practice? Describe your symptoms.

Chronic fatigue, hypothryroid disease, numbness in fingers and toes, restless leg syndrome, and recurrent bronchitis and pneumonia. 

What were your first appointments like?  What was your response to the treatment plan?

My first appointment was wonderful. I was filled with so much hope after my visit with Dr. Anderson. I was so excited about getting started on the treatment and so looking forward to feeling well. Fortunately, I had been guided by a sweet friend to view my treatments as a full time job. So I was very eager to get started. It helped to have the chart that was supplied taped to the back of the cabinet door where I kept my supplements. I did wonderfully on the treatment and after two months I noticed a huge difference. It was like a cloud was lifted off of me.

Describe your overall health picture today.  What improvements have you experienced? 

My health picture today is wonderful! I feel like I was given a new start in life! I was treated for spirochetes bacteria and when I was cleared from that, I was treated for thyroid stress. I was able to be taken off thyroid medication after being on it for the last five years. It has now been four years that my thyroid has been fully functioning. 

After being treated at Longevity I feel like a new person. I remember taking our first family camping trip after my health was restored. I was sitting by the river and looking at the green trees. It was like I was seeing them for the first time. I could see them so clearly with my eyes and see the beauty in my spirit. I was able to enjoy the beauty that God created! It brought tears to my eyes and I was so grateful to have been given such a gift. 

I also marvelled in every experience with my children, because even though I had been a mother for ten years, I was experiencing life with them fully with a clear mind for the first time! I had been lifted out of the fog I had lived under for 12 years. A year later I was blessed with the news that I was going to have a baby.

I already had two precious children, but I always wanted a third. I knew I didn’t have the strength to take care of another little one, but after being treated at Longevity my energy returned and before I knew it, little James came to join our family. As a 40-year-old mother, I was very anxious, but the staff at Longevity supported me with advice and supplements through my C-Section and cared for me and the baby after he arrived. 

How wonderful it’s been to have a healthy baby! My first two were riddled with sickness, but because James has been treated at Longevity since birth, all sickness has been over in the blink of an eye! He is healthy and strong. What a difference it has made in our lives. My other two children were treated at Longevity at the same time I was. Their health also turned around completely. Today they are strong and healthy. It is such a blessing to be free from the roller coaster of constant antibiotics.

What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?  

It is hard for me to put into words how grateful I am to everyone at Longevity. I know that every day is a gift from God. I am so thankful that he led me to Longevity through the testimony of a dear friend. I have seen God’s healing touch in so many of my friends and family members that have been treated at Longevity. Watching people go from desperation to hope and health has been awesome to witness. 

Jesus truly is the great physician. He alone is our hope and strength, and he provides a way out of the worst health issues. I am so grateful to Dr. Anderson for following the will of God in his life. He is truly using his gifts to glorify God and bless others. Thank you so much.

Here at Longevity, our mission is to love God and serve people, and we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this interview with our wonderful patient, Julie Ann, who has experienced a tremendous improvement in her health and quality of life this year.

What were your primary health concerns and symptoms when you started at our practice? 

I was experiencing dizziness, intense brain fog, multiple unexplained falls, neuropath, muscle tension, and extreme fatigue. I had seen multiple doctors who were unable to pinpoint exactly what was wrong, but suspected autoimmune disease and wanted me to see a Rheumatologist. I refused. I’m a retired nurse and stay up-to-date on all things health, and I had a strong feeling that I had a Lyme infection, not an autoimmune disorder. I didn’t want to take the chance of being misdiagnosed. A friend at a local herb shop in my town recommended Dr. Anderson and Longevity Health Center. 

What were your first appointments like? 

My first appointment was amazing. From the moment I walked into the lobby and saw the mission statement on the wall, I knew I was in the right place. I was immediately comforted. I was treated so kindly by everyone, and Dr. Anderson assured me we would get me feeling better soon. 

My husband attended the first appointment with me, and since Dr. Anderson’s testing was “very different” from anything we’d seen before, he decided to check Dr. A’s reviews right there in the office! My husband noticed that there was not one bad review on Dr. Anderson that he could find, but all glowing recommendations of how much he had helped them. This gave us so much comfort about this holistic method of treatment and the practitioner. My follow-up appointment with Cristina was wonderful as well. She was so kind and helpful. 

What was your initial response to the treatments and therapies? 

My response to the treatments has been incredible! I have been faithful to all the supplements that Dr. A gave me and his instructions on how I should eat. I have used the HOCATT therapy in addition to the supplements. I have regained “myself” much quicker than I anticipated. When I first started the detox, I felt worse for a short period (I was told to expect this), but then I started to notice my symptoms were beginning to fade away. By my first follow up visit, my detox numbers were cut in half, and the viruses that I had been fighting for over 5 years were gone! 

What is your overall health picture today? 

Now, about half-way into my treatment plan, I feel like I am at about 85% and well on my way to 100%! My brain fog is almost non-existent, I have more energy than I have had in a long time, and I am not falling or having dizziness and fatigue on a regular basis. I feel much more lucid and productive. I have been in an aircast boot three times on my right foot from the falls I was having. That foot doesn’t even feel weak anymore, which I believe is a result of my therapies and supplements. 

What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?  

My overall rating of Longevity Health Center a 10 out of 10! I have not had one bad experience in dealing with anyone there, and the therapies offered are such a tremendous help. I was so happy that everything my body needed to heal was within the Nutrition Shop right there in the office! I have been telling everyone I know about Longevity, Dr. Anderson, and his staff!

Enjoy this story from our wonderful patient, Lisa, who has experienced a tremendous improvement in her health and quality of life this year. If you have a transformation story to share, we’d love to hear from you! 

I began to hear and learn of Longevity Health Center and Dr. Anderson from my pastors over the past five years. During this time and over the past few years, I had been experiencing symptoms from diabetes, bloating, constipation, and unexplained itching. I was doing my best to manage my symptoms and take control of my diabetes by losing weight and making lifestyle changes, but finally these issues, in addition to the lack of sleep and overall fatigue, motivated me to give natural health care a try. I must say, coming to Longevity was the best decision that I’ve made for myself in a long time.  

My first appointment proved to be a blessing, as so many of my symptoms were addressed. It was an eye opener to see how many viruses, parasites, and other toxins were burdening my system. To give you an understanding of my perspective, I’ve been a healthcare professional for the last decade. In my experience with doctors in the past, they could only provide some of the answers, but mostly focused on running expensive lab tests and prescribing a regiment of pharmaceuticals. 

Since I lived in a household that took an alternative approach to illness using supplements, herbal teas, and other remedies, I wasn’t on board with most doctors’ approach. At my first Longevity appointment, as I consulted with Anna, Nicole, Melina, Ashley, April and others, I realized I could resolve my health issues in a more holistic way. 

I praise God that the response and reaction that my body had to these therapies was so successful in a matter of 6 weeks! I noticed the change immediately. Of course, the detox period was quite different to say the least, but overall my toxicity score that was above 10 resulted in a lower score too!  Thank you Jesus!! 

As of today, I’m still noticing a lot of changes as I continue to stay on track while eliminating sugar, gluten, and other harmful foods from my diet. I’ve also noticed on occasion I’m sleeping better on the days when my work schedule is not so demanding.  I have no more itching and scratching, and my thyroid levels have improved drastically, to the point where my primary doctor wants to lower my medication dosage. 

I continue to rave so much and so appreciate Longevity and its staff.  While I’m at work, I’ve had the opportunity to share information about Longevity with patients, co-workers, and personal friends. I tell them it works when you make a decision to get and take care of the temple that God has given and where His Spirit resides!

I’m so thankful and grateful to God, Dr. Anderson, and the whole staff of Longevity, who have been instrumental in my continued recovery and success. 

Grateful and Blessed, 

Lisa Beal

 

 

 

Longevity Health Center’s 40-year impact in the community can be summed up in the devotion of a longtime patient and friend, Sharon Folk. She first met Dr. Seneca Anderson in 1979 at a holistic healing conference at the Health Barn and Vitamin Shop near her hometown of Greenville, TN. So impressed with his care and healing method, she has continued to seek his health guidance to this day.

 

At the time when Sharon attended the conference, she suffered from habitual sore throats and earaches, which she had treated unsuccessfully with years of antibiotics. She had spent years treating symptoms, only to experience more. She was beginning to discover a new way of thinking and living just as Dr. Anderson was accepting his call to practice bio-energetic medicine.

 

“What impressed me from the very beginning was that everything is energy,” said Sharon. “Energy assumes several forms and it can heal the body. Dr. Anderson would test me and I would listen to the frequency and how he checked for the right remedy.”

 

Through experience, Sharon saw for herself how these remedies healed her. In the last 38 years Sharon has been under the care of Longevity Health Center and overcome numerous sicknesses from toxins she accumulated through the years.
In 1992, Sharon underwent a major dental procedure to remove 14 amalgam fillings. Dr. Anderson assisted her in her detox of heavy metal toxicity with homeopathic drainage remedies. Later she developed hot spots in her breast and again Dr. Anderson assisted her with homeopathic remedies and with new technologies that Longevity offered such as Ozone Therapy and Frequency Specific Microcurrent. In the past 30 years, Longevity has grown to offer more services such as Massage, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Acupuncture and the addition of four new bio-energetic practitioners. Sharon recalls when the office staff was only Dr. Anderson, Melina Smith, and Kay Anderson, all of whom she fondly admires for their amazing care.

“Through all this time I have become friends with them,” Sharon said. “Kay is always so caring and she goes the extra mile. You don’t go 38 years knowing someone and not form a personal relationship. Melina especially has done great things. Over the years I have seen Dr. Anderson grow and refine his process. He has developed and applied the knowledge he’s learned, but after practicing for 40 years, he has developed his own path.”

 

Sharon recalls all the offices Seneca and his wife Kay taught and practiced in from 1978 until Longevity was formed and set up permanent residence in Roswell, Ga. Even though Sharon lives and works in Tennessee, she sometimes travels 10 hours round trip for an appointment and treatment at Longevity. Sharon has a goal to keep her health good for as long as she can. She has appointments more often these days, but she said it’s like visiting family. “I would recommend this practice to anyone,” Sharon said.

 

Sharon is the former owner of a manufacturing company for printing custom business forms. She currently owns and operates an 18-hole golf course in Greenville, TN. She is very active in her community where she contributes by sitting on several boards and committees. But most of all, she is living a healthy life as a testament to her care from Longevity Health Center.

How HOCATT Transformed My Quality of Life: A Testimonial by Kimberly I.

Here at Longevity, we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this Q&A with a patient who has seen vast improvements in her quality of life by incorporating HOCATT into her protocol. 

The acronym HOCATT stands for “hyper-thermic oxygen and carbonic acid transdermal therapy.” The HOCATT acts as a personal steam sauna, in which a person sits with just his/her head exposed to room air, while the body receives the benefits of infusion through the skin of tri-oxygen, carbonic acid, steam, infra-red light, photon light therapy, oxygen and aroma therapy. Now in use in over 20 countries, this therapy is safe and effective for all people seeking vibrant health or pain management.

What were your primary health concerns and symptoms when you started HOCATT therapy?

I began a series of ten HOCATT treatments in hopes that the acute attack of Spirochetes bacteria on my spinal cord, brain and heart would cease. I was experiencing a myriad of symptoms, including:

  • Crazy unpredictable heart rhythms, racing and skipping at random times throughout the day
  • Debilitating headaches
  • Severe pain at my brain stem and down my spinal cord
  • Weakness and dizziness that preventing me from driving myself
  • Muscle spasms around the abdomen area
  • Neuropathy and idiosyncratic nerve sensations down both legs and in my hands, arms and back
  • Arm and hand weakness and exhaustion (To the point where my hands shook just trying to hold my phone for longer than a minute or two, and even brushing my teeth was challenging.)
  • Severe and heavy brain fog (I had trouble remembering events from the previous day.)
  • Severe imbalance and inability to walk on my own
  • Uncontrollable emotions

What was your initial experience and response to the treatments?

To be completely honest, I expected to feel better a little quicker. At first, I would say I actually felt worse, was weaker and more off balance. Around the fifth treatment I started to turn a significant corner. I quickly started regaining my balance and muscle strength, and was able to walk again! I continued to improve each treatment thereafter.

Describe your overall health picture today and the differences you’ve experienced.

Today, I am much more “normal” physically than I was before the 10 HOCATT treatments. My brain no longer feels impeded, and my balance is vastly improved. The weird neuropathy and muscle spasms are gone! My emotions are more consistent, and my heart is no longer out of rhythm.

What would you like to say to others who are going through chronic illness?

Chronic disease almost always has an underlying emotional component that has caused the individual’s immune system to be stuck in overdrive as well as adrenal burnout. Luckily, the immune system can be reset so it’s not always on high alert. I think it’s imperative that people deal with their stress, emotions and past traumas while detoxifying and rebuilding their immune systems.

I would also recommend patients be informed of the need to really allow their bodies to REST after each HOCATT session. The treatments cause the body to go into intense detoxification mode, so people should take it easy and try to reduce stress while going through their series.

What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center?

Longevity has been a beacon of hope for me after being medically diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, for which there is supposedly “no known cause or cure.” All I was offered were prescription drugs to manage my symptoms, but that never address any root cause (and cost upwards of $60K a year!). Coming to Longevity and learning I am dealing with a chronic Spirochetes infection, and just knowing that healing is possible, and experiencing my own physical progress has been a huge shot in the arm!

What is your overall impression of the practitioners and staff of Longevity?

Longevity is a true place of hope and healing. The staff members are humble, kind and understanding.  I love and appreciate all of them so much. The HOCATT practitioner, Lisa, is a fantastic communicator, advocate and friend, and she really cares about each patient and wants to help. She is just wonderful.

Testimonial By Bonnie S.

Our family met Dr. Seneca Anderson for the first time on July 20, 2015. In the year leading up to that first appointment at Longevity Health Center, my teenage son had steadily changed from being an outgoing, fun loving and intelligent kid, who was active in student government and three sports, to a depressed, irritable, rage-filled, hostile, anxiety-ridden boy. He was exhibiting constant tics, rituals and obsessive-compulsive tendencies. He struggled to stay awake in class, but couldn’t sleep at night. He went from making mostly A’s to failing most of his classes. He dropped out of many of his activities and opted to stay at home much of the time.

In our quest to figure out what was wrong with our son, we took him for MRIs, meetings with psychiatrists and therapists and multiple visits with an immunologist located hours from our home for bloodwork. We even took him to the local children’s hospital, where we signed a form to have him taken against our will. We went through what felt like literal HELL.

And then we heard about our naturopath Dr. Anderson from a close family friend who had experienced an amazing health transformation. Our family had never had any experience with homeopathy before, so this was definitely outside our comfort zone. But we were not getting answers anywhere else and we were desperate to find healing for our son. 

On the very first visit, Dr. Anderson was able to use his bioenergetic testing to find several toxins affecting my son’s health and behavior. He tested positive for Spirochetes Bacteria, Borrelia Burgdorferi and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, as well as other viruses and toxins. His organs were working too hard, and he tested positive for autoimmune. We started to understand why his immune system was shutting down.  

Dr. Anderson was so assuring and walked us through the health journey our son was going to be on over the next six months as his body detoxified and healed. We decided to go “all in” with Dr. Anderson’s recommendations, and threw away the antibiotics he had been taking. We followed the protocol to a T, even though it wasn’t easy! As Dr. Anderson predicted, my son’s condition got worse before it got better, and there were many ups and downs during the treatment. But we stuck it out, and boy are we glad we did! My son was able to detoxify all the major toxins affecting his system in the first five months! We have continued to keep him on his supplements as he rebuilds his immune system and bone density. He is taking good care of himself and getting stronger and healthier every day!

Today we have our boy back! He’s heading into his junior year of high school with a 3.9 GPA, and he’ll be a starter on the varsity basketball team. He also leads a 6th grade boys small group at our church. He is back to his hilarious and fun-loving self and is an incredible big brother to his two siblings. His anxiety has almost completely gone away and he is feeling stronger, happier and healthier. We are so thankful and give God all the glory! I am sharing our story to let everyone know that healing is possible. Do not give up the fight to find healing for your child!

We love the staff of Longevity! I cannot count how many times I called the office (sometimes in tears) with questions and concerns, and the staff members calmed me down and encouraged me to stay the course and assured me that healing would come. I can’t thank Rosie, Nicole, Lis, Alice, Melina and Kay enough! We actually feel like they are family and I can say honestly that I love them! I feel that depth of emotion toward them because they teamed up to bring healing to our son who was declining so rapidly that we thought we were going to lose him.

And Dr. Anderson…What can I say about the man who God used to heal our son? He is a godly, calm, humble, brilliant man. He prayed over my boy multiple times and we feel like he and all the staff are our extended family! I really feel like he cares about the well-being of my son and wants to do what he can to help him continue to heal and get stronger. 

I would recommend Longevity to anyone…and I do!! I recommend them at least 1-2 times a week! And every time I have watched someone else choose to go to Longevity to receive healing it feels like it redeems just a little bit more of the hell we went through. As strange as it sounds, I feel like God allowed my son to go through this so that so many other people could receive healing! I would never want to go through this journey again, but I would not change this journey that God has taken us on. He had a purpose in all of it and is bringing good to many people!

At Longevity Health Center, our mission is to love God and serve people by pursuing healing and encouraging wellness, both for ourselves and for our patients.  That’s why stories like this from our long-time regular patient Lisa M. make us so happy!  Lisa is experiencing incredible improvements in her quality of life by utilizing a combination of the many of the services that we have to offer.  Read her story below! 

Longevity Health Center has been a blessing to me as I battle with Chronic Lyme Disease and have a history of Lymphoma and Leukemia.  The entire staff is so genuinely caring and sensitive.

One particular therapy that has been a game changer in my health battle against Lyme Disease is the HOCATT.  The staff is so supportive and helpful, continually monitoring and ensuring my comfort during the treatment.  The HOCATT practitioner offers innovative ideas and customizes the treatment to my needs, and she is extremely attentive and helpful during the treatment. The first few sessions were challenging, as the detox was difficult.  However I was committed to the series of 10 prepaid treatments (the best money I ever spent!) and the Longevity team was very reassuring and encouraging.

I am so grateful I persevered and continued on as I began to see drastic benefits.  Most noticeable are my increased energy levels. I can now hike both days every weekend! My immune system has improved so I don’t have frequent infections and viruses. My body doesn’t ache or feel like I have flu-like symptoms. I am told by others that my skin color has changed from a dull gray to a healthy rosy pink.  I am happy to see the increased benefits as I have now completed my 25th session.  I plan to continue until energetic testing by Alice shows no trace of spirochetes (Lyme bacteria).  Then I plan to continue a maintenance schedule, as I feel the treatments are extremely beneficial.

I have discovered that the HOCATT treatment in conjunction with supportive Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and Acupuncture is advantageous and amplifies the benefits.  Follow-up with acupuncture the following day by Andrea or Alice (both women are so knowledgeable and proficient in acupuncture.), has been extremely effective in facilitating the detoxification process.  Also, I periodically precede the HOCATT treatment with Lymphatic Drainage Therapy since my lymph system has a tendency to get congested.  I schedule with either Nancy or Andrea as my schedule permits as they are all incredibly accommodating and supportive.

A special shout-out to sweet and lovely Ashley who works with me to schedule my complicated treatment appointments around my schedule! I think sometimes she is more aware of my schedule needs than I am at times. Truly I am so impressed by the level of professionalism combined with care and thoughtfulness from the entire staff at Longevity.

Here at Longevity, we love hearing testimonials from our patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health.  Enjoy this story from Melody Frcek, a patient who has experienced incredible improvements in her quality of life using our supporting therapies.  If you have a testimonial to share, we’d love to hear from you and use your story to encourage others! 

What were your primary health concerns before you became a patient at Longevity?  What led you to incorporate supporting therapies in your health journey?  

I had a lump in my right breast that was discovered 10 years ago during a mammogram.  When I had a needle biopsy and had it drained, it came back as non-cancerous, but I was told I needed to watch it. Over the years I had become increasingly discontent with traditional medicine and was embracing integrative healthcare. I began using thermography to monitor breast health instead of mammogram. My right breast always came back with a high score. After a few years my doctor thought I should explore another mammogram due to my constant high scores. I reluctantly did so, and the hospital where I had the mammogram was concerned with the results and had me come back for a diagnostic mammogram. The radiologist wanted to watch it and wanted another diagnostic in 6 months. I knew in my spirit that this was not for me and chose not to go back.

Instead, I continued good breast care with oils, supplements, massage and followed a good diet, but my thermographies continued to show red flags in my right breast.  The lump showed up again in a mobile ultrasound, but once again I was told just to watch it.  Last spring I went through a traumatic event, and following this my health check up did not go well. Not only did I feel terrible, but my cell vitality was very low. Shortly after this, I began having pain in my right breast and a little discharge. I knew at that point that I was ready to completely embrace the holistic lifestyle and decided to go to my sister’s doctor, Dr. Seneca Anderson.

I choose to go through Dr. Anderson’s testing before telling him my health concerns. Low and behold, his tests revealed low cell vitality and problems in my right breast! In addition to following a homeopathic detoxification and supplement protocol, Dr. Anderson recommended 8 sessions of Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy to speed up my healing process.

What were your first few sessions like? What was your initial response to the therapies?

My first few sessions were wonderful. Not only did I find a peace every time I walked in the door of Longevity, I also felt the compassion of the staff. Nancy was the staff member who gave me my treatments. She is warm and caring and her loving demeanor helped me to feel safe. The treatments were performed laying down on a heated biomat, which was absolutely wonderful. It helped me relax and even nap for part of my time there. I could feel my body and spirit responding and becoming more vibrant. The treatments are painless and actually very stimulating, much like getting a massage. I looked forward to coming each week and began to feel stronger each time.

Describe your overall health picture today. What improvements have you experienced?

After the first 4 treatments, it was time for my 2nd mobile ultrasound. Fortunately, the same technician was assigned to me. She told me while she was performing the ultrasound that the lump appeared to be dying and fizzling away and she felt good about it. The report came back as clear. Upon completion of my 8th treatment, I decided to go back to my old thermography center for a follow up. I was absolutely thrilled when the report came back perfect. The technician wrote on the report that the score was perfect for the first time ever with a smiley face and congratulated me. She told me to keep doing whatever I was doing. My next check up with Dr. Anderson also indicated that there was no more stress and stagnation in the right breast. I continue my breast oils and my massage, and I have not had any symptoms at all.  I am relieved that, for the first time in 10 years, I can move forward without fear.

What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?

I love Longevity and the staff. As I mentioned, I had just experienced a traumatic event in my life and my health and emotional state were greatly affected. Each and every person I dealt with at Longevity were loving and genuinely caring. Dr. Anderson was so calming, and I was able to tell him what had happened to me. He was compassionate and always asked how I was recovering from this each time I saw him. Dr. Anderson’s wife Kay is a jewel and always worked with me to get what I needed. Nancy became somewhat of a soul sister for me, and every other person I worked with was marvelous. Without them knowing it, they were each a part of helping me rebuild my life, and I am so grateful. There is a peace in their office like I have not found anywhere else from the moment I walked in the door. I feel safe with them. I have referred several people to Longevity and will continue as a patient and friend there always. I have the utmost confidence in them. They improved my health when no one else seemed to be able to do so. Thank you Longevity!

It just seems like I remember always being what could be described as “robust but fragile” all of my life. Maybe my immune system was always a bit weak, because although I could excel at sports, I would catch things easily. It was not until 1990, at age 38, when the situation took a turn for the worst, and I experienced a fever that held on for 12 days and increased as the days went by. I kept getting weaker and weaker, and finally numbness began to move up my legs starting at my feet. By evening I could no longer stand up and had to be rushed to the ER. After many tests, the doctors were still unsure of the cause, but treated the symptoms as they saw fit (with steroids). The doctor of infectious disease mentioned that he “suspected Lyme disease” but could not confirm it through the testing.(I have since learned that traditional testing is not adequate to confirm Lyme disease and that more sophisticated testing is needed.)

Two weeks later when all the dust settled, I found myself paralyzed from the chest down, with several doctors telling me I would likely never walk again. I was single, and rehab took about a year, so my new life was an incredible challenge.  In a strange way, I found all of this to be a time of spiritual awakening, as I came to trust a higher power to see me through all of this. In an unexplainable way this experience had a beauty about it that was profound.

So, I pulled myself up by my bootstraps and tried my best to learn to walk again. Over several months, I was able to get around and walk, but always with a severe stiff legged limp. Over the next many many years I experienced diverse symptoms that included: joint pain (with visible joint damage) skin rashes, severe allergic reactions, sounds in my ears, itching all over, insomnia, dry uncomfortable eyes, eye lids twitching, flashing lights and floaters in one eye diagnosed as “inflammatory vitriol detachment”, memory loss, severe brain fog and dizziness, neck pain that would become unbearable and make me have to lay down, irritability, depression, foot pain that seemed to be in the bone, Hashimoto’s thyroid disease, chronic severe constipation and heart palpitations. I think my worst symptom of all was severe fatigue to the point of being unable to participate in life. The list could go on and on but I think you have the picture. The Doctors I would see did not have helpful advice.  They offered drugs to mask the symptoms, but I declined.  I then began to try eating a much healthier diet, which I feel certain may have helped to tide me over until I found the real cause of the problems. At least with good nutrition I was not exacerbating an already difficult situation.

Finally, last summer my symptoms became unbearable and I was finally fed up with suffering.  For many years I had been hearing from people about a wonderful homeopathic doctor. A veterinarian, a chiropractor, a well respected friend and an MD had all spoken of this man to me with great respect. His name they said was Seneca Anderson and he “got results”. They say when the student is ready, the teacher will come, and this was the case with Dr. Anderson.  One day I just decided that I needed to see the “gift in my challenge” in order to be healed. A week after I decided to change my attitude, I found myself talking to a stranger about Dr. Anderson and how he had helped her. That was it. I was going to see him!

Thankfully the wonderful office staff helped me get in ASAP by placing me on a waiting list. I was a bit familiar with Dr. Anderson’s testing equipment and was not too surprised when I was told I had the spirochetes bacteria.  I had read other stories of people who had been treated for the disease with standard medical protocol and were placed on antibiotics for anywhere from one to two years and then relapsed.  I just could NOT go there. I was so happy to hear that Dr. Anderson used methods that supported the body but were effective in killing the bacteria. I was also relieved to see that Dr. Anderson understood how sick I had been and had compassion for me rather than trying to convince me it was “all in my head”.

As excited as I was to have found this wonderful resource, I could not have been totally prepared for how this healing was going to try out my patience in a way like never before. I think when you are resigned to being ill you become lethargic and lose hope. But when you begin to get hope once again, it is a vulnerable feeling and you must exercise your faith like never before so you can go the distance. The healing time I was told would be six months to one year, and so we began. Dr. Anderson sent me home with first a bioenergetic balancing card to wear on my body, as well as some supportive supplements that included a special silver that could kill bacteria. I was asked to eliminate certain foods for a while and to drink plenty of pure water.

It seems that for a good while I felt more tired than before.  I was hopeful that this meant my body was using energy to heal itself with the help of the various supplements and therapies. For several months I was able to be patient as I think I had this idea that it would take “six months” for me to get better. I had sort of set a time limit like that in my mind so when six months arrived I was getting anxious. I felt a good bit better, and many of my symptoms had reduced or disappeared slowly but surely, and I could see clear changes happening. I think the scary thing for us Lyme folks is that our symptoms come and go and move around so much that when we start to get a real cure, we feel worried that it will not last, but my symptoms were now going and not coming back! Yahoo! It did take me almost eight months to clear the spirochetes from my body, and at that time I felt great improvement in my overall health. It would take a little longer to tweak some of the symptoms as I had this disease for close to thirty years, but I was ever so much better and felt like myself again!

In closing, I am ever grateful to Dr. Anderson for following his heart call to become a healer of not only bodies, but of hearts and minds, as he gives his patients much hope and support. The staff at Longevity is just a fine group of caring individuals who encourage you on your journey back to health. Healing will require you to be strong and go the distance, but you can do it, and you deserve to really fight for your life!  Just let Dr. Anderson help you and never give up.  We are all deserving of great health.

May God bless you on your journey, Susan Flahert
