In January of 2013. I was stricken with a debilitating health experience. Upon waking one fine Saturday morning. I found my hands mysteriously hurting to the point of not being able to hold my coffee cup. My whole body felt achy and I wanted to stretch to make it go away, but no amount of stretching or exercise was helping. As a matter of fact, exercise was making it worse. I did not know what was happening to me! The worst part of all of this was the fact that I could not work in my clay studio, because my hands had no strength to form the clay. I felt like an 80 year old in the body of a 52 year old!
This went on for two mouths getting progressively worse. Some days were better than others, but most days I could barely hold a cup or lift the coffee pot. Walking from one end of the house to the other was a chore. I thought it was some kind of virus and it would eventually go away on its own, but I was wrong! Finally I had enough and I decided to seek medical advice.
I did not want to go the traditional allopathic route. I did not want a doctor who was going to do a few blood tests and then give me a pill to treat my symptoms. I wanted a doctor that would consider the big picture. Someone who could help me put together my health puzzle and show me the way out without the use of prescription drugs. I wanted someone who could get to the root of what was happening. That’s when I came across the website of Dr. Christopher Jackson, Ph.D., D.O.M. and his amazing office “A Path to Wellness”, http://www.aptw.net/
From the beginning of my treatment in March of 2013, I felt that Dr. Jackson was a caring and compassionate man. He listened intently to all my concerns. The initial consultation took quite some time, after which he used his vast medical experience to order several blood tests that he felt would give us the answers we were looking for.
Well sure enough, he was right on the money. Although I was not happy to hear that I tested positive for Rheumatoid Arthritis with low vitamin D, it was a relief to finally know what was wrong. Dr. Jackson then prescribed a holistic regimen of fish oil, turmeric, and isotonic vitamin D, to name a few. He also suggested I give up gluten and dairy. He said my recovery would be slow, but it would happen. I believed him and I did as he suggested. Now here I am two years later (2015), pain free and working in my clay art studio full time. Thank you Dr. Jackson for all of your time and expertise in working with me through my bewildering health experience.
If you are seeking a doctor who will take the time to listen to you, who looks at the big picture, and who has a holistic approach to medicine, then Dr. Jackson is for you!
I highly recommend Dr. Christopher Jackson. He changed my life and he may be able to do the same for you.
