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 patient, Philip, as he shares his story of improved health and quality of life!
Describe your primary health concerns when you first started at Longevity.
After 12 years of symptoms, I had finally been diagnosed with Lyme and several coinfections by a pioneer in the Lyme field. After a year and half of multiple rounds of highly damaging and ineffective antibiotics, I was told that the Lyme would never be eradicated and I should expect to be on antibiotics for the rest of my life. I had a level 10 headache from the moment I woke till I fell asleep, crippling fatigue, and paralyzing Herxheimer reactions every two weeks. In addition to that, the bacteria had spread to my brain, and begun to cause brain fog. The absolute lack of any hope began stirring up suicidal ideation.
What was your first visit to our office like? What was your initial and ongoing response to the treatments?
I was treated very kindly by the founder, Seneca Anderson. He sat across from me, looked me in the eyes, and said “You’re not going to die.” I cried, because it was the first time anyone spoke so confidently towards me and what seemed like an absolutely hopeless situation. I began the treatment plan, and within six months saw significant changes. I continued to return to Longevity for follow up evaluations as my body slowly healed.
Describe your overall health picture today. What improvements have you experienced over the years?
I have not tested positive for Lyme for over 3 years. My headaches have disappeared. My fatigue has diminished significantly, and the debilitating Herxheimer reactions are no longer recurring. Most importantly, the hopelessness that engulfed me is now gone. I realized that my condition is not permanent and I am able to live a life that not only has energy, but hope for a vibrant future.
What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?
From the receptionists to the founders, every person was so incredibly patient, kind, and professional. When first arriving at Longevity, I had many questions, all of which were answered thoroughly, giving me a high level of confidence that my treatments were being carried out by highly competent practitioners.
