I’ve got a story I’d like to tell you.

My name is Lena and I've been on a lifelong search for health and peace, first for myself and then to everyone I can reach out to with my message, that doctors and drugs will kill you and to keep away from both at all times.

From the moment I was born it seems, I’ve had one medical crisis after another trying to stay alive. I got married at 21 and in the first 4 years, trying to start a family, I had four premature babies and one miscarriage.

After the birth of my 4th child, I was suddenly overwhelmed with pain in every part of my body. It was then that I started a search from some kind of relief from the never ending pain and constant fatigue.

The medication the doctors put me on made everything worse. I came down with Meinere's Disease really severe; the vertigo seemed present every single day. For weeks at a time I couldn’t move my head without spinning out of control. Never a night went by without just turning over in bed triggering vertigo and vomiting.

Then I was diagnosed with uterine cancer and had a hysterectomy. This was when I was just 29 years of age. Luckily at that time chemotherapy wasn’t an option or I would have gone through that.

In the middle of handling all this, my husband was nearly killed in a horrific accident that shattered both his wrists and arms. With four children to look after and nursing him back to health – took two years - God told me that my calling was in nursing, so I somehow put myself through college and got my nursing degree.

The daily pain, raising four children and nursing my disabled husband at times made me think I must be going mad. I even went to a psychiatrist but he said I had no mental illness that the pain was real.

To keep the family going and put bread on the table, I initially worked in hospitals and rehab clinics as a nurse, and later ran medical offices for several doctors, where I was receptionist, nurse, office manager and patient advocate. I did this for twenty-plus years and witnessed first hand the conflict between patient care and insurance payments.

I learned to cope with the chronic pain, headaches and fatigue by constantly staying busy, sometimes working 18-20 hours/day. I finally was given a diagnosis for what was causing my pain: “fibromyositis”, which today is known as Fibromyalgia. The doctors were totally hopeless in treating it with drugs. The heavy sedatives did nothing but make me a zombie and all had undesirable side effects that at times, put me in the hospital.

I found work as an office administrator at a sports medicine clinic one day. The clinic offered both alternative and traditional medicine. I’d never heard of alternative medicine back then and it was a turning point in my life. What a “wake up call”!

People were getting healthier without drugs and no side effects. I jumped into studying everything I could about natural medicine. I read a book a night, sometimes two, and studied under the nutritionist and chiropractor at the clinic, soaking up everything they said and did, while also teaching medical office assisting and management at night!

Working 18 hours a day of course made me exhausted. The headaches and pain from fibromyalgia became unbearable at times. One of the doctors pushed me to get a cardio checkup one day and discovered I had a prolapsed mitrial valve (where one of the heart valves does not completely close when the heart pumps) as well as some damage from a Rheumatic Fever illness. Apparently I'd had this for years. I also had 75% blockage in my major arteries leading from the heart. It was a wonder I could walk to the clinic they said!

Of course they wanted me to have heart surgery to repair the valve, but I said NO WAY JOSE!

Instead, I’d been reading about a thing called Chelation Therapy in one of the books and guess what – it cleaned up my clogged arteries and the mitrial valve problem went away. No drugs! No surgery!

All of this confirmed my deep down distrust of western medicine and pharmaceutical drugs - and at the same time reaffirmed my trust in God’s pharmacy of herbs, vitamins and minerals.

So I put all my growing experience in natural medicine and healing along with my skills in administration of businesses and started my own healing center. I called it Antibiotic Alternatives.

This was way before the Internet came along. I had several of my articles published in natural healing journals and the word just spread. When people rang me up, I used my personal experience to advise them on what to do and what to take.

Having been so very ill for so long and then discovering that just a few capsules and liquid minerals can turn your life around really resonated with people. It’s helped me get rid of my fibromyalgia, arthritic nodes in my finders and the vertigo.

I look for special products, formulas with high healing capacity. Which is how I found Wayne Garland and his Master Formulas.

We’ve become wonderful friends over the years. I recommend his formulas to all my customers and patients at the Antibiotic Alternatives Clinic and he helps me with his advice when I can’t solve a patient’s problem. It’s a fabulous partnership.

And through Wayne, I finally found the answer to my Meniere's vertigo. Through all the years, barely a night went by that I wasn't awakened with the world going ‘round and severe nausea by simply rolling over in my sleep. He recommended I try the Mind Power formula – and the Meniere's completely went away - I couldn't believe it!

To confirm the formula was truly making a difference, I skipped a few of days and the nausea and vertigo came right back. I spent 2 days in bed recovering from that experiment and haven't missed a day since. What is so great it only takes me four capsules a day!

In 2002, at the age of 68, my doctor wanted me to have a bone density MRI because he was sure I had osteoporosis because of my age, (I figured I would humor him and do it) small stature, lactose intolerance, total hysterectomy, two bouts with cancer and chronic fibromyalgia for more than thirty years.

Well, he called to give me the results and said, “You were right, so continue doing whatever it is that you are doing. You have the bones of a 30 year-old and shouldn’t have to worry about broken bones the rest of your life!”

I could have told him that! I believe it is the Life Transfusion Liquid Mineral Complex and the herbs that have given me these great bones and all the formulas and minerals together have built up my immune system and given me a new lease on life for the last seventeen years!

And forget flu shots! I have had no colds or the flu since I can't remember when.

I sincerely hope by sharing my story you can benefit from my experience in some way.
