I struggled with recurring infections for 4 years
My interest in superbug infections like C. difficile began after college when I worked for a major pharmaceutical company as a Microbiologist. For 9 years I worked in the lab doing medical research on many kinds of bacteria, including Clostridium species. Among my research projects, I studied how Clostridium, Staph and other bacteria react to antibiotics. I later moved on to become a pharmaceutical consultant where I taught drug companies how to make safe and bacteria-free products.
I’ve been a Staph carrier since college (I did my own nose swab test), but I was pretty healthy until about 12 years ago. That’s when I started having recurring sinus and other infections.
My doctor prescribed me many courses of different antibiotics. I never thought to question taking all these antibiotics because that’s what my doctor told me to do. I never even got my infection tested because my doctor never suggested it.
I struggled with recurring infections for 4 long years and they often led me to other bacterial and viral infections, especially in my intestines. My life was a mess and my health began to plummet as the infections and antibiotics took their toll on my body.
What I discovered changed my life
All of the antibiotics I used weakened my body. I caught colds easily and I was sick just about every other week. I lost so much time from work that my work quality suffered and my relationship with my supervisor was strained. I was miserable and sick and tired of the cycle of infections, drugs, and more infections and I just couldn’t see any way out. That’s when I started searching for another way to deal with my infections… and what I discovered changed my life. *
Long-term freedom, beyond short-term relief
What really turned my life around was finding out there was a reason or “root cause” for my infection. Treating this underlying issue finally gave me the long-term freedom I desired, not just short-term relief from infections. What I discovered about treating infections also changed my husband’s life too.
My husband Les is a Chemist and he spent 17 years testing and researching drug products in the pharmaceutical industry (that’s our picture to the right). Les loves the outdoors and he started suffering from chronic joint pain in his ankles and knees from years of hiking and climbing in Colorado. After seeing how I turned my health around, Les began to treat the root cause of his health problems just as I had. Les’s treatment techniques were different than mine, but many of the underlying principles were the same.
We’ve seen first-hand the effects of both pharmaceutical drugs and antibiotics versus following natural and effective ways to achieve real health. Happily, we have made our transition from relying solely upon pharmaceuticals to a “new” path. We are now both happier and healthier than we ever have been and I haven’t had one recurring infection in over 11 years! *
Good research is more than just surfing the web
Superbugs like C. difficile are rapidly becoming more widespread, more challenging to treat and more serious and even life threatening. It’s critical that you get trust-worthy and reliable information when it comes to something this important. All my years as a scientist and researcher taught me a lot about studies, information and data. It definitely takes relevant education and experience to understand and present it accurately.
I think it’s really important for you to know who is behind any information you get. As part of my research, I’ve read many books, talked to medical doctors, naturopathic doctors and holistic practitioners, researched scientific journals in the U.S. and abroad, and attended seminars and trainings on how to use many different natural treatment techniques. And, I also learned through personal trial and error what methods worked and which ones don’t.
I’m widely referenced across the internet
My articles, and information have been referenced widely around the internet. I’ve also been interviewed about Staph and MRSA by Dr. Judi Gerstung on her KRFC FM radio show.
The principles and techniques we discovered changed much more than our own health. My husband Les and I started our first natural health business in 2002. Our “Embrace Health Inc.” business has allowed us to help thousands of people learn how to achieve better health and nutrition. In 2008 I published a book, MRSA Secrets Revealed, about handling Staph and MRSA infections naturally. Since then, C. difficile has grown and spread rapidly and is a very common problem after taking antibiotics for MRSA treatment. Experts predict that C. diff may soon overtake MRSA as the number one “superbug” in the U.S.
Why did I create this website?
To me, my journey back to health was a wake up call. I spent years researching antibiotics at my job, only to find that natural medicine was the right solution for me. I also knew from my research along the way that other people were struggling with the same problems with antibiotics and recurring infections that I had.
I wanted to make sure people didn’t have to go through the long process of figuring out the steps to take to stop these infections. So I created this website as an integrative information resource for you and your family. If you haven’t, please read my free report I offer on this website. Often, the hardest part is keeping infection from coming back. I think every household needs to know this important information because C. diff and other challenging infections are becoming much more common.
