Earlier this month, I published a blog about the connection between chronic illness and COVID-19. The message seemed to touch a nerve with a number of Natural Healthcare Center patients who have been working so hard to overcome chronic illness. One of our patients, Marie, emailed me this wonderful letter. Her words mean more to me than she could imagine. Such heartfelt feelings and emotions are why we do what we do at Natural Healthcare Center. I wanted to share Marie’s letter with the hope that you’ll find it as encouraging and inspiring as I have.
Hey Dr. P! 🙂
I just wanted to and say that I really enjoyed reading your most recent blog and am so happy there is at least one person on this planet that is reaching out to others to make chronic illness an issue at the forefront! Thank you so much for writing it!
I find it incredible that all healthcare is not geared towards educating the general public about chronic illness. You would think the insurance companies would at the very least be pushing that narrative! I love that you send these blogs out to your patients like me who have signed up for such. But in reality, we need you to start reaching out further to the general public to get this info to those that need to hear this, like an editorial in a major newspaper!
I have watched now for years, ever since I was about 20 years old, people getting unhealthier by the moment. It is so sad that our food chain is mostly toxic and that the FDA allows the most egregious foods to be produced in our country and the most poisonous additives to boot! I have no idea how people are so ignorant about what to do to keep their bodies healthy and strong, and how they blindly destroy themselves from within. I am grateful that you are here to help in your special, wonderful way, and I wish there were many more of you – Soldiers of God, as I like to refer to all of you.
It does make me sad to know that I do everything in my power to live my best life. I do believe I am incredibly healthy but I still suffer so with this broken body. I know that sounds extreme…lol! But it is really how I feel at this point. I am fine if I do nothing, but as soon as I try to go back to my real life, my body betrays me. 🙁 But that’s a story for another day.
I do really need to come in soon and, hopefully, when this whole thing lifts, I will see you! I know you are open now. But I am taking extra precautions for Michael. I believe he is considered in the high-risk category since he has been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. This is a genetic defect, sadly, that he has acquired from both sides of his family and not unhealthy living.
I simply can’t take any chances… bringing home anything to him. I am not worried about myself. I think I could handle getting through the virus, God willing. But I stay home and try and protect him in that way.
Anyway, I am looking forward to coming back asap since I am definitely struggling. I did buy a bicycle though! And at least that has allowed me to keep moving with little fallout! Yay! 🙂
I hope you keep safe. God forbid if anything ever happened to you! All of us would be in a very bad place! Keep up the great work and your love and care of mankind!
Many blessings to you and your beautiful family, my friend.
