Becky found the Epigenetics Healing Center after 15 long years of unsuccessful fibromyalgia treatment. Fibromyalgia is a complex and often misunderstood condition that so many traditional doctors disregard or treat ineffectively with nothing but harsh painkillers.
She came to the center almost ready to give up, unsure if she could ever find a normal life again without debilitating pain. When she started the program, her body started to heal itself in a way she’d never experienced before.
Today, Becky is on her way to an amazing recovery and a life full of experiences she never dreamed possible at the worst of her condition. Congratulations, Becky. You are incredible. Read the story in her words below.
“I started having trouble with joint pain when I was in college. I started out treatments by going to the Mayo Clinic, and they really couldn’t figure out what was wrong. They told me I had a ‘connective tissue disorder’ and let me go. I was on naproxen, and I did OK most days.
After I had my kids, when my little girl was about 2 or 3, I was working with the youth group at church. One day we were playing kickball (so I was still doing pretty well at that point), but my hip started to hurt during the game, and by the next day it started to hurt so badly that I thought I had broken it. I actually went into the ER, and they couldn’t find anything. A couple of days after that I had pain and muscle spasms so bad that I wasn’t able to walk again for two or three months.
I was stuck on the couch. My kids pretty much took care of me. My little girl would stand on a chair in the kitchen, and I would give her directions about how to cook our meals for us. It was that bad.
I went to three different doctors who said it was in my head. I was on a really strict diet and worked with a pain management guy. I was on tramadol, amitriptyline, naproxen …. and more. I can’t even remember. The more symptoms I had, the more prescriptions they put me on and the worse I got.
One day, I came home from work and talked to my daughter (who is 17 now) and I said ‘I give up. I am going to have to go in and apply for disability. I can’t do this anymore.’
She started doing her research, and she said ‘Look mom, I found this doctor in Oberlin Park, and he treats fibromyalgia and a bunch of other things. Maybe you should check it out. And it was Dr. Goodbinder. He sent me a huge stack of paperwork. He wanted to know everything, and I was thinking ‘Nobody has ever asked this many questions before!’
We went in to see him, and he was so kind. He talked to my daughter and me for an hour and listened to everything, absolutely everything. He accepted me as a patient, and he did a whole bunch of tests. When I came back in to see him, he found all the things the other doctors should have found. I used to need 12 hours a sleep a night, and now I only have to get 7-8. I am adding on work instead of being afraid of having to go on disability. Every day there is something else where I can say ‘Wow, I am getting better.” I have hope again that I am going to be normal.
I was able to go swimming with my kids this year. Before Dr. Goodbinder, I hadn’t done that in 5 years. We are going to go to a renaissance festival. I haven’t been able to do anything like that in so long. And I am not even scared to go. Before, I would have had to take off work for 2 to 3 days to rest after going to something like that. And I don’t have to do that anymore. He’s giving me my life back.
The whole office doesn’t just tell you what to do and hand you supplements. They give you the tools to really change your life, to get it back. And now I know I can stay healthy. I think he is amazing and everybody in the office is amazing. I had 15 years of going to doctors who just treated my symptoms. And now I have hope of being able to say that I don’t have any diagnosis at all. It is night and day.”
