Dear Prospective Patients,
I wanted to write about my experience with Dr. Anderson and the entire Longevity Health Center team.
When I first saw Dr. Anderson in 2004, I had been ill with Lyme Disease for three years (Diagnosed in 2001). I had received intensive IV treatment from Lyme-literate doctors in three states. I felt that the MD’s had saved my life, but I still had little vitality and was very sick. I have always been open to alternative therapies, and I had used many of them. But it took three years for me to make the leap to entrusting the core of my treatment to Dr. Anderson.
After only ten minutes of testing, Dr. Anderson told me that that I had two parasites. One of them was toxoplasmosis, which he said could be cured with an herbal remedy in one month. I was flabbergasted. I had been to several MD’s, including a gastroenterologist, for debilitating diarrhea over the course of a year. I had several invasive tests, as well as tests for parasites. The MD’s found nothing. After taking Dr. Anderson’s herb for one month, my diarrhea was gone! If I had any doubt that this man could help me, that doubt now disappeared.
The Lyme treatment was much tougher. It took well over a year with Dr. Anderson for me to regain some strength and vitality. But I got to the point where I could work part-time, which was a huge improvement. I continued to see Dr. Anderson regularly for five years.
I had a serious relapse in March of 2015. I had experienced significant emotional and physical challenges, including travel and caring for my 91-year-old mother living in Michigan. When I returned to Atlanta, I was in bad shape. I was very weak and had trouble thinking. I had no appetite, and my digestion was terrible. Trying to stand felt like I was hoisting an elephant. After six weeks without improvement, I called Dr. Anderson’s office. He was unavailable for several months, but Cristina was available in two days. I made the appointment with her in late April.
Cristina was extremely helpful. She found that I had six different tick-borne infections, including Borrelia, Babesia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. She told me it would probably take six months to feel well. I didn’t find the treatment easy, but I followed it diligently. I took certain supplements away from food and stopped consuming almost all gluten, soy, and dairy. When I had questions and concerns, I phoned the office. I always got a call back promptly. Nicole, Cristina, and Melina patiently listened to me and gave me informed, caring answers. I can’t emphasize enough how much it meant to me to know that these wonderful people were available to talk to me during this frightening time.
I did not notice any improvement for a long time. The months passed slowly, and I had terrible depression. When I saw Dr. Anderson in September, I still felt miserable. He modified the treatment for my specific type of Babesia. He found that I was not absorbing B-12 or folic acid properly, and he prescribed a cream to help with the methylation process. He also gave me additional adrenal support. He predicted that I would have better energy and thinking ability in about two weeks. It actually took five weeks, but then everything suddenly got better! At first, I had two days in a week where I could stand easily. The next week I could stand easily for four days. The following week I had five good days, and the next week I felt good every single day! My energy and appetite were back, and the depression vanished. Cristina’s prediction had been correct. It had taken almost exactly six months for me to regain my health.
I am absolutely elated! It is now seven months since I returned to Longevity for treatment for Spirochetes. I have felt well every single day for a solid month. Although I still have some limitations from the tick bite, I now have energy and can be up and around most of the day. I can think, carry on a conversation, shop, cook, and teach dyslexic children to read. I really feel like I have come back from the dead.
My mood is excellent, and I have my sense of humor back. My 26-year-old daughter said one of the big differences she notices is that I can be silly again. (When you are just trying to survive, there is no energy to be silly.)
There are not words to express the gratitude I feel toward Dr. Anderson and the entire team at Longevity. This is a very knowledgeable, caring group of people who are dedicated to helping suffering people feel well again. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
