Jenny Smolinski: Lou Gehrig’s Disease

I am a 36 year old wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. Last year, after experiencing some troubling symptoms for the previous year and a half, I was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. It is also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It causes eventual paralysis, including breathing and swallowing muscles. There is no known cause, and no known cure. The usual life expectancy is 2-5 years from diagnosis.

After I received this news, I knew there had to be a way to manage this disease and hopefully halt its progression. I had a strong gut feeling that traditional medicine was not going to be the answer for me.  I found Waller Wellness Center and was able to quickly get an appointment. After my first appointment with Mary Wilson, I felt peace and most importantly, hope. This alone has been a huge gift and an essential piece on my journey toward healing.

Nearly a year later, I feel great. I have had very little worsening of my symptoms (which, for this aggressive disease, is truly amazing).  I feel like I am the healthiest “sick” person I know.  I have no doubt that the things we are doing per Mary’s suggestions are the reason I am doing so well.  Discovering all of this valuable information about how my body is functioning is truly eye opening. The philosophy here is perfectly in line with my beliefs, and just makes so much sense when you think about it. Treat the cause(s), not the symptoms. I love going into the office. Everyone is so kind and welcoming and remembers me and my young daughters (who frequently have to come along to my IV sessions). I recommend this wonderful center to everyone I talk to. I can’t thank the entire staff enough for helping me and my family in so many ways!

A Healthy Gut is a Happy Gut

The television commercials would have you believing that digestive discomfort is as normal as anything.

Jokes about passing gas, having to run to the bathroom after every meal, feeling discomfort day in and out and popping pills so that you can still manage to down your favorite foods, this is the normal day to day for millions of Americans. But it doesn’t have to be that way. [Read more]

Properly Addressing Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease is a genetic subclass of chronic disease that directly impacts the immune system. Depending on the type of autoimmune disease that one is afflicted with, the immune system is either over-stimulated or under-stimulated. For some, this means that the immune system will attack the body during normal functioning, damaging its own tissues and causing destruction within the body that is quite painful. For others, it means that the body is subject to immune deficiency, exposing it to increased risk for disease as the immune system is left unable to fight off invaders, leaving you vulnerable to infections.
