From chronic debilitating disease to wellness: A patients journey
Intro: In the realm of healthcare, Dr. Slezak stands out as a beacon of hope and healing, a true testament to the power of naturopathic medicine. With unwavering dedication and profound knowledge, Dr. Slezak has transformed the lives of countless patients, offering them a chance at renewed health and vitality. This article sheds light on two remarkable success stories where Dr. Slezak’s expertise as a Naturopathic Doctor made all the difference in a patient’s life.
Jennifer is a healthy 62 year old woman who had sudden onset of chronic fatigue after receiving a flu vaccine.
She had been bed bound for two years before coming in. Her life had been marked by endless doctor’s appointments, countless medications, and a pervasive sense of hopelessness. Jennifer had reached a point where she felt that there was no way out of her suffering. Little did she know that her path to recovery would begin when she walked into Dr. Slezak’s office.
Vaccine reactions are either autoimmune or toxic in nature and in Jennifers case it was determined to be impaired detoxification of the adjuvant chemicals used to produce the vaccine. This triggered a massive toxic reaction in her body that left her adrenal system exhausted and led to the chronic fatigue. In order to clear this up, Dr. Slezak prescribed a protocol that supported both her adrenal system and detoxification systems with targeted nutritional support while eradicating the chronic infection in her intestines that was triggering a toxic burden in her body. By treating these deeper levels of system dysfunction he was able to restore Jennifer’s energy level to normal within months and get her back to living the life she lost.
Maricella was in desperate shape. She came to see me after a friend had recommended me in an attempt to address her debilitating chronic joint pains.
For the last year or more she had experienced a progressive increase in pain in most of the joints of her body, culminating in a hospital stay at Stanford University to evaluate for the cause. Although they couldn’t clearly diagnose her condition, they could offer her drugs to lessen the arthritis. Maricella wanted more than pain management, she wanted to find out why she was in so much pain and how to reverse it. That’s why she came to Dr. Slezak. After doing a few screening tests for foods and other triggers of chronic inflammation it was determined that she had an allergy to foods which she was eating on a daily basis. Within a week of eliminating these foods, Maricella was completely out of pain and only noticed pain from then on when she consumed one of those foods. These types of results are not unusual.
These two stories are examples of how important it is to look at the root causes of disease rather than limiting your approach to treating symptoms.
Both of these patients would have been subjected to a lifetime of medications and endured years of suffering had they not seen Dr. Slezak. The saddest thing he hears from patients who recover is “why didn’t I do this sooner?” after waiting years until they try a doctor like him. Naturopathic Medicine may seem foreign to some because we’re a small profession, but Dr. Slezak reassure you that Naturopathic Medicine is the best of science-based health care that gets at the root cause of problems. There is nothing strange about that. Naturopathic Doctors dig deeper and look carefully at things that are ignored in modern medicine. They combine knowledge in nutrition, botanical medicine, supplementation, stress reduction and lifestyle medicine to bring you the most cutting edge medical science and treatments available.
