Life After Lupus: Ashley's Success Story 

"I am 26 years old and I’m in the office administration field. I am also a youth and worship leader. I am pleased to say that I am currently in the best health I have been in since I was 19. 

When I first came to Dr. Patrick’s office I had a variety of health issues.  I suffered from digestive health issues, environmental and chemical allergies, food allergies and Lupus  (which I didn’t know I had at that time). I started seeing negative changes to my body when I was 19 but I got very sick for 5 years without answers or help. This caused a lot of sickness, flare-ups and hospital stays.

“I saw 9 doctors before going to Dr. Patrick. I saw 5 MD’s, 2 cardiologists, an ENT specialist and an allergy specialist."

I didn’t have any energy at all and felt exhausted and weak in my body no matter how much rest I got. I had to stop working because I was too sick to be dependable, and I needed time to heal my body. My relationships suffered, because I was absent for many life events and rarely made or kept plans due to never knowing if I could actually manage to get myself there. It took all I had in me to get ready to go anywhere. I had to plan my days out very well to make sure I had plenty of rest, even to do something as simple as going out for a quick lunch or grocery shopping. I started getting depressed and losing hope. I was worried I wouldn’t get better and would have a less fulfilling life than I had dreamed.

I saw 9 different doctors before going to see Dr. Patrick. I saw 5 MD’s, 2 cardiologists, an ENT specialist and an allergy specialist. There were probably more doctors but I lost track after the ninth doctor I went to see. I started feeling neglected. Being bounced from physician to physician was frustrating and overwhelming. At the advice of an RN who cared for me during my last hospital stay, I decided to take my health into my own hands.

After being discharged, I started researching allergy specialists in my area. Dr. Patrick’s website showed up in my Google search. I was looking to find answers and someone who would try to help heal the cause and not just prescribe medication for the symptoms. Reading his story gave me hope that someone out there may have the knowledge and care to help me. Something that really stood out in the information on the website was that I could get relief without medication or shots.

I had no idea what to expect when first visiting Dr. Patrick. I was simply hoping for someone to listen. No one had ever really listened to what was going on with my body. I was hoping for an open ear, and of course, some help.

After visiting Dr. Patrick I achieved control over my life again. Before, I felt like I was a slave to my health issues. I’ve had to retrain my brain on how to think and respond to things. For so long I was used to thinking, “I can’t do that because…” Now I have to consciously remind myself that I have the ability to do anything and think “Yes, I can.”

My digestive system has calmed down and is under better control. My trigger foods don’t seem to bother me as much. I have the energy that I always dreamed of having back. Dr. Patrick has also helped me with my allergies. My Lupus seems to be in remission after treatments with Dr. Patrick. My physician wants to run tests, because she thinks that Lupus is either gone or I have achieved the remission stage. My family noticed my bounce back of energy and drive. They say my skin has more color in it, and jokingly tell me it’s nice to have me alive again. They always encouraged me to go back to Dr. Patrick, because they could see my progress.

I was given peace of mind. I don’t have to worry about my body and illness getting in the way of daily life or adventures. I’m even about to go back to work! After healing so quickly, my husband and I decided to go do a list of things I always wanted to do that I never thought I would get to do, including swimming with dolphins on our Valentine’s day date!

I was taken back by Dr. Patrick’s approach at first, because it was different than anything I had tried before. I decided to be open-minded. I felt like I, and my body, deserved to give the treatments a chance. I am very glad I did. No medications, no shots and non-invasive whatsoever. Dr. Patrick’s treatment approach produced something I had never experienced before…results!"
