Transcript of Trudy W, Tremors-Headache-Anxiety
Hi, my name is Trudy, and this is my third trip see Dr. Jaudy, and this trip I’ve had eight treatments, and it’s been amazing. I’ve gone from wanting to die, to feeling great, and there’s nothing like it. It’s a blessing, but I had so many symptoms that a doctor back home couldn’t do anything for me, and the doctor was actually making it worse, but didn’t know it was making it worse. The doctor added supplements and found out I had lead poisoning, so we were just going on that premise and that’s the direction we needed to go, when it wasn’t the problem at all.
I was so blessed to get here because one of the problems I was having was that I felt crazy. I wanted to just scream. Frustration, acne, headaches; everyday I had a headache. My hands hurt. My hands and feet hurt so bad. They were cold all the time, I just felt like I was on the edge of the cliff, every moment of every day, and there was no joy. Trouble concentrating, started stuttering, my face was twitching, my eyes would flutter, my eyes would go back and forth in my head. I had no control over them. It made it difficult to drive; certain smells would set my head off. It was just bizarre. Nothing made sense, and when I came here, I found out it didn’t have anything to do with the fact that I had heavy metal or lead poisoning. It was all my middle brain.
The first day, just within the first 30 seconds of him working on me, made all the difference in the world… the facial twitches and the tremors with the eye twitching, started about six to eight months ago, and I was trying to figure out what that was through the process of elimination. Certain smells would make my face twitch, and my arm would start to twitch and jump on it’s own, and it would make the restless leg problem worse. It also made it difficult for the driving, and also, just going to work every day with the facial tics. It would only be this side of my nose.
A lot of times my husband would look at me and say, are you just happy to see me, you’re winking at me. No. I’m having a reaction to something. I don’t know what it is. A lot of times it would be during cooking dinner, and I couldn’t function. I’d get something started, and something is on the stove cooking. I couldn’t function to finish it. They would have to step in and help me. It was just frustrating. It affected everything. The twitching and the eye fluttering affected everything I did. Trying to read. Read at work, trying to function at work, look socially acceptable. Not happening. Go to basketball games. Can’t walk. I start having problems with the leg, and when my head would shut off and my face would twitch, then I couldn’t do stairs. I couldn’t do other activities at the same time, so to walk and twitch didn’t work. My body would just shut off, and so it affected everything I did, not just brushing your teeth. I mean it was everything, every moment of every day.
My dad was there and he thought I was having a gall bladder attack. No, it had nothing to do with that. It had to do with the mechanism, the part of my main middle brain that deals with your breathing, all those mechanisms that you take for granted. My sympathetic nervous system was so on high 24 / 7, and it never shut down, it never went away. That caused the tremors, that caused the eye fluttering, that caused my restless legs, that caused the chest pain, because it was so over powered that any little thing would set it off, and it actually it was shutting off signals to my organs, which it shut off the signals to my diaphragm which, therefore, I could not breathe, because if your diaphragm doesn’t move, you don’t move your lungs. So, yeah, it’s pretty important to exchange oxygen. It was so scary.
I’m thinking I’m 40 years old, and I’m having a heart attack. What is the deal? I’m healthy. I think of myself as healthy, but not brain healthy. We eat organic, we don’t eat any sugar, we eat really healthy, we cook healthy, all those things, and you think, what’s wrong with this picture? But there is still stress, it was environmental stress, environmental chemical. All those things played a role in my brain. My frontal lobe was not connected with the rest of my brain, and therefore, I was just angry, I had absolutely no joy, and I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t enjoy my kids, I couldn’t enjoy anything. Even though I should be laughing, I felt like a stone, and I had no personality, and I was just frustrated all the time. Frustrated, frustrated, and the more frustrated I got, the more I stuttered, the more “off” my brain got.
Now look at me. It’s been eight days, and I feel great, and it’s possible. Nothing is impossible when it comes to Dr. Jaudy, absolutely nothing. He’s amazing. The migraines that I was having were so debilitating. I had a headache everyday, but it was lack of the part of my brain that wasn’t working, and that’s why my hands and my feet are cold all the time. He said I have no blood perfusion, so even though I’m breathing, yes, but that part of my brain, because it’s on the sympathetic nervous system, is overloaded, and it shunts all the blood to the center of your body, and no blood goes out to your extremities.
So even though it’s a hundred degrees out, my hands are ice cold, my feet are ice cold, and they hurt, and it hurts to walk, and it hurts to exercise, and do all those things, so you assume, I have this problem with this foot. It’s not. It’s because my brain wasn’t getting blood. Therefore, since my brain wasn’t getting blood, that’s why I had the headache in the first place because my brain wasn’t getting the blood flow to bathe my brain, and it only compounded the issue, but also my hands and my feet, that’s why they hurt because they don’t have the blood flow.
So hormonal issues… I was seeing a doctor back home and she had me on hormones, and different doses, and trying different things, and it just made it so much worse. The acne, the horrible acne. To be forty and have acne, welted acne. I couldn’t figure out what it was.
