My name is Fabio, I am 31 years old and I am from Portugal.
These words come from the deepest place of my heart and tell about my most true and profound wish – recover my health.
I have been living with a health condition since 2010, and with the profound suffering that results of all the physical, mental and emotional pain that it causes. Since that time, I have been focusing my effort on finding a way to recover my health, to end my suffering and, therefore, to regain the sense of harmony with life.
I never could have an official medical diagnostic, so I can’t even label my health condition. All I know with certainty from my health condition, is the real and profound suffering it causes on me due to the many symptoms I have been living with for the last nine years.
After years of intense self research and experimentation, I truly feel I finally found the path that will best allow me to recover my health and fully heal, which consists in implementing the healing protocols developed by the holistic health practitioners and professionals I have been studying for a long time. To make it possible, I will need to go temporarily to USA, to stay near them so that I can have their support and guidance. However, I have not enough money to go to USA, to stay there for the time needed, and to pay for the guidance and for the treatments. For that reason, I am asking for donations to make it possible for me to go in January 2020 towards what I truly feel and believe from my heart to be the possibility to finally recover my health. This is the purpose of my request.
In 2010 I was in college and was living a very happy life when, suddenly, my health started decaying and my life soon became an everyday effort.
It all started with the manifestation of a state of permanent hoarseness and throat pain that severely compromised my voice and, therefore, my capacity to communicate with other people. That hoarseness and throat pain turned out being really incapacitating and, at the worst moments, it started being very hard and painful for me to talk. Because of that, I often started feeling the need to move away from people, because I really couldn’t talk to them because of having no voice. That incapacity to communicate with people and that need to move away even from the closest ones, makes me feel really sad and has a profound negative impact on my relationships. This condition really deprives me from naturally engaging with people and from truly expressing my feelings, my thoughts and my humanity.
At the same time, my digestion started malfunctioning and many digestive symptoms appeared. I started getting severe bloating after meals and a big amount of trapped gas in my intestines that causes real discomfort and, sometimes, pain. My digestion became slower and heavier and constipation became frequent. I also started feeling painful heartburn and acid reflux after meals, which increases my throat burning and pain and also the loss of my voice. I feel I really don’t properly digest almost all of the food that I eat and, because of that I am always hungry, even when I am full. Nutritional deficiencies started showing up and there is also undigested food on my feces, which is also an indicator that food is not properly digested.
Frequent urination, occasional burning urination, painful hemorrhoids, white coated tongue, fungus, fatigue, weakness, body pain, cold body, nausea, tremors, heart palpitations, severe and incapacitating brain fog, inability to think, poor concentration, memory loss, disorientation, sense of disconnection with the present moment and with the moments of my life, anxiety, depression, fearful thoughts, insomnia, irritability and mood swings, inability to feel and express emotions, etc., are just some of the symptoms that, in time, took over my body, adding to a state of profound physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.
Apart from all the physical pain, I feel profoundly deprived of most aspects I most value in life, and the experience I can get from life itself got truly shortened. It feels like there is some kind of barrier that doesn’t allow me either to connect with myself and also with everything that surrounds me and with life itself.
I sought the help I truly need near many doctors for six years (2010-2016) and, throughout that period, I had many different medical exams done which were always inconclusive. I was also often prescribed with many medications from which I never got relief. I never could get that true help neither an explanation of what causes my condition, or a diagnostic. Because the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with my body they often said that my symptoms should all be caused by stress, anxiety or depression and, for that reason, I was also prescribed with calming medications, which also didn’t provide me with any relief. In my deep, I always felt that there should exist some physical cause behind my condition and that the emotional symptoms that came along are a consequence, not the root cause. On one of the last medical consultations I went at, the doctor said that, most probably, I should learn to live with my health condition for the rest of my life, since there isn’t anything apparently wrong with my body. After that statement, I went out of the doctor’s office feeling profoundly sad and hopelessness. Those effortlessness six years also made me feel that conventional medicine doesn’t have the answer to my condition, at least here in my country. I really started feeling that, to find a cure, I would have to start looking into a different kind of knowledge and seeking a different approach.
That was 2016 and I was in profound suffering and despair and feeling that I really couldn’t find any help. I really wasn’t seeing a way out of my suffering, so I decided to start researching for what could be the cause of my condition and for a way to truly heal myself. Because of my effortless past experience with conventional medicine, and also because of my beliefs, I started focusing on holistic and natural health. That was the true beginning of my healing journey, which hasn’t ended yet.
Since 2016, I have been spending almost all of my free time researching, trying to understand how the human body works, why disease manifests, how to truly heal and also learning procedures to assist true healing.
At that time, I also started consulting with a few local naturopaths who put me on a few healing protocols. I was diagnosed with gut dysbiosis, so the naturopaths focused on addressing it by changing my diet and prescribing some natural supplements. For the first time in years I started feeling some relief and a little decrease on some of my symptoms. As the time passed, I started feeling that I wasn’t improving more and, for that reason, I kept doing my intense research in hope to find a quicker and most effective healing protocol. From my research, I started feeling that my gut dysbiosis wasn’t the main cause of my condition but just the result of a bigger problem and that, perhaps, the healing protocols I was on wasn’t addressing the real root cause. I also started being more aware of what true healing really means and what it takes for it to occur, which has a lot to do with bringing the body back to balance by giving it what it needs to self repair (nutrition, hydration, rest, oxygen, sunlight, etc.) and removing everything that it doesn’t need and that it is toxic to the body itself.
By that time, I also started focusing my research on foreign references by discovering a knowledge around holistic health that I couldn’t find here in my country, where the approach is more conventional and limited. In fact, most of the knowledge I started focusing exists even beyond official knowledge but, what led me to it, was discovering that it truly helps people to heal of their health conditions by applying the natural principles of true healing. That started to be my focus, to learn about true healing, so I could apply the principles on myself to recover my health. My discoveries raised my hope again and gave me strength to keep walking.
Because I wasn’t seeing any major improvements with the protocols prescribed by the local naturopaths I was consulting with, and also because I stopped resonating with their approach, I let go of those protocols and started contacting by distance the foreign holistic health practitioners that I was studying, telling everything I could about my health history and about my health condition.
From all the detailed information I kept providing to the health practitioners, I was told for the first time what my condition really appears to be and the most possible causes behind it. Generally, they explained to me that I am certainly dealing with high levels of toxicity (such as heavy metals) within my body and, for that reason, some of my organs are malfunctioning, starting with my digestive organs - the stomach stopped producing enough stomach acid, the liver became congested and stopped producing enough bile, the pancreas stopped producing enough enzymes and, because all of that, my gut became inhabited by pathogenic organisms (such as bacteria and parasites, hence the gut dysbiosis) that feed of my nutrition and constantly release toxins that keep being absorbed, creating systemic intoxication and inflammation. As my digestion became impaired, I stopped getting most of the nutrition from my food, hence the intense food cravings, the nutritional deficiencies, the weight loss, the fatigue and weakness. They also told me that when nutritional deficiencies occur and there are toxins floating around in the body, the starving cells feed on those toxins and, because of that, cell damage and impairment occur. For that reason, other systems of my body also started malfunctioning (such as the endocrine glands), resulting on the many physical, mental and emotional symptoms I started living with.
When I think about the possible sources of toxicity that may have contributed to the toxic load of my body, there are some aspects I can point. I never had perfect health and, for that reason, I often had to take chemical medications. In my childhood I had asthma, so it was frequent to take medications to address it. Then, when I was seven years old, I also got meningitis. About one year after, I had to get my tonsils and adenoids removed, because they were often inflamed. I also started having many teeth problems since my early childhood, even though I always had proper dental care. Because of the teeth problems I often had to take antibiotics and other medications to prevent and address infections and inflammation. Those problems often occurred because my teeth were very weak, broke very easily and, for that reason, had to be repaired very often. The repairing of my teeth often resulted on the placement of silver amalgam fillings, which are known today to be very toxic because of the many toxic substances they are composed of, including heavy metals (such as a big amount of mercury). I also started having root canals at a very young age because sometimes my teeth broke to the nerve. Today, it is also arising the awareness of the dangers of root canals, mainly because they often hide infections. As the procedure involves the removal of the nerve, the teeth are no longer irrigated by blood and, for that reason, the body loses its natural ability to fight the infections that occur. Then, those infections become chronic and weaken the immune system.
All of these aspects certainly weakened my body overtime and added to its toxic load, even though I wasn’t consciously noticing it, till 2010, the year my health started decaying and having a profound negative impact on my life.
That exact year, I went through a deep and extensive teeth restoration process as I never did before, which involved the replacement of old silver amalgam fillings, the placement of some more silver fillings and some more root canals to address infections that showed up. It was also often required to take antibiotics and other medications along the process.
Right after being told by the holistic health practitioner I was contacting with that the most possible cause of my condition is toxicity overload, I started realizing that the deep teeth restoration process I went through in 2010 might be what certainly triggered the decaying of my health and the manifestation of my many symptoms. I can perfectly remember that, during the dental procedures, it was often inevitable to swallow particles of the amalgam fillings and also to inhale the vapors that released from the procedures.
In the time that followed, I went to another dentist and required the replacement of all the old silver fillings by less toxic white fillings. That new dentist, also noticed that four of my nine root canals had infections which were already causing damage to the jaw bone. For that reason, I had those teeth extracted. Even though I always kept regular visits to the dentist, those infections were never noticed before. My dentist says that the remaining root canals doesn’t show apparent infections, but I feel seriously concerned about them because I often have my gums inflamed and also feel a pulse sensation that goes from those teeth to my throat and head.
The connection between the decaying of my health and the deep teeth restoration process I went through in 2010 is not only suggested by the chronological coincidence, but also from the conclusions provided by the response of my body to the implementation of the healing protocols prescribed by the foreign holistic health practitioners I have been contacting with.
Every time I tried to go through any kind of detoxification protocol I started experiencing strong detoxification symptoms, such as intense brain fog and inability to think, increased body pain and burning, nausea, extreme physical fatigue and weakness, etc., which is an indicator that, in fact, my body keeps a big amount of stored toxins. I am also very sensitive to foods that detoxify heavy metals from the body, such as beets, cilantro, chlorella, etc. When I eat those foods I also experience the same strong detoxification symptoms, which suggests that my body also keeps a big amount of stored heavy metals. Because of those strong debilitating detoxification symptoms that I often experienced, I never could be on any detoxification protocol for more than a few days, not only because of the increased pain and suffering that results, but also because I lose the capacity to handle the daily tasks and the capacity to stay productive and work.
By October 2018, I took the decision to quit my job so I could fully focus on recovering my health and not have to worry about the need of staying productive. I also went to live alone because I felt it would be easier to stay focused and didn’t want my family and friends to see me go through detoxification and misinterpret my symptoms, worry and put more pressure on me. I was provided with the minimal social financial support from being unemployed, which allowed me not to work for a full year (till October 2019). So, during that year I was fully focused on recovering, tried some more healing protocols and procedures and kept spending all of my time researching about health and true healing and experimenting some of the things I was learning on myself. I kept getting some occasional professional guidance by distance, however, because of the need to save money, I have been walking alone for most of the time, supporting my path on the knowledge that results from my research, from the teachings and from the healing experience I have been going through.
During that year, things went harder than I expected and every time I implemented detoxification protocols or procedures I felt the real need to give up soon because of the strong detoxification symptoms that always appeared. At some point, I got so weak that I barely couldn’t even walk or even raise my arms. One more time, this was a clear indicator of a heavy toxic load and cellular weakness.
At that time, the holistic practitioner I started contacting with told me that the weakness I was experiencing means that the cells of my body are really weak and, for that reason, have to be properly strengthen before any attempt to go through a detoxification phase. He also told me that it would be of extreme importance to get the needed support from specific supplementation along all phases of my recovery, which I never did because of my insufficient funds.
Because my insufficient money didn’t allow me to implement a solid healing protocol with professional guidance and all the needed support from supplementation as I was advised to do, I kept walking alone from most of the time and with no support, trying to do my best to recover from the all the knowledge I could gather from my research, from the occasional contacts I kept doing with holistic health practitioners, and from my healing experience. However, I feel like I kept permanently fighting against my body because of feeling so weak and not being able to provide the needed support. With no guidance, I also end up feeling lost very often. On those moments, I really don’t know how to proceed and what are the best choices to make.
The year I lived fully focused on my recovery ended on October 2019 because I needed to get back to my job so I could keep supporting myself financially. For that reason, things got even harder because now I have to stay productive, so that I can work. Since then I feel that I am only managing my health condition by optimizing my diet so that I can control my symptoms and have sustainable levels of physical energy. Food really has a great impact on my symptoms and on the way I feel, so I have been focusing on it because it is something I can do. Thus, I feel that my healing is stagnated since October 2019.
That year between October 2018 and October 2019 doesn’t only allowed me to deepen my research about true healing and to try many healing protocols and procedures, but also to be more in tune with myself and with what I really want for live and, at last, it allowed me to discover a purpose – I truly started feeling from my heart that I want to dedicate myself to help other people improving their health and, therefore, getting a better experience from life; and I want to do it from all the knowledge I want to keep expanding and from the healing experience I truly believe that will make me fully recover my health. I started feeling that I don’t want to disconnect from the path I have been following, and that I don’t want to let go of all the knowledge I have been gathering, not only because of feeling that it will allow me the best experience of life and a happier life, but also because I feel it can also be really helpful to other people, as it has been for myself.
Because of my health condition, I became aware that the level of health determines the quality of the experience that we can get from our life, and also the possibility of us to be fully happy. As an example, the experience I can get when I talk to someone is more profound now than before because I could partially recover my voice. This small aspect has a profound positive impact on my life and makes me feel happier.
From my research and from the teachings I have been getting, it grew up on me the conviction that toxicity is often the main culprit of poor health and is at the root of most health conditions. It can be toxic substances that we assimilate from our food, from the contact with chemicals, from environmental pollution and contaminated atmospheres, etc., but it also can be toxic thoughts or toxic emotions. I really believe that all of these forms of toxicity have a profound negative impact on the expression and function of our cells and is the main trigger of disease. Thus, I truly believe we are sicker than ever before because of our growing toxic behaviors and practices. I feel really sad when I think that the children that born today may not have a beautiful life because of poor health and debilitating conditions they may not even be responsible for. We can already clearly state that diseases manifest at earlier ages than ever before.
Because all of that, I truly started feeling that helping people improving their health and, therefore, having a better and happier life is what I really want to do for life, and that the best foundation for that help is my healing experience, which I truly believe that will allow me to fully recover my health. This is a true and profound whish that I don’t feel the need to question, because it really comes from my heart and brings tears to my eyes when I think about it.
However, I know that I will only be allowed to help other people when I recover my health, not only because I need to go through a true and effective healing to support that help, but also because I also need to regain my capacities. Meanwhile, I truly feel that the life that I wish from my heart is on hold because I really have not enough strength to manifest it.
Since the end of the year I isolate myself to fully focus on my recovery, I have been looking for the way to make it possible for me to go through a true and solid healing protocol to recover my health. From all of the previous experience, I truly feel and know that I can’t go through it alone, because I don’t know enough and often feel lost; I also can’t go through it without support, because I feel really weak and, as I was advised before, my body has to be strengthen and fully supported along the healing process.
From all the knowledge I have been gathering from my extensive research I truly feel that the shortest and most effective path to my healing is to go temporarily to United States of America to implement the holistic healing protocols and procedures developed by the holistic health practitioners and professionals that I have been studying. I truly feel that I will find true healing and support there, and a chance to go through a solid and consistent healing protocol that addresses the root cause(s) of my health condition. Here, in my country, conventional medicine only provides me with symptom management treatments, which often consists on taking chemical medications that doesn’t really heal me.
It would also be beneficial and important for me to have a precise diagnostic before starting any healing protocol so it could be securely targeted to the diagnosed root cause(s) of my health condition. From my intense research I feel truly confident that I can get the most precise diagnostic at Sophia Health Institute, by going through a diagnostic procedure developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt called Autonomic Response Testing. Here in Portugal, I never could get a diagnostic and really have no hope to ever being possible to get one.
Because of the strong possible connection between my health condition and the toxicity absorbed from the teeth procedures done in the past, I also feel to be of extreme importance to have my teeth examined by a true integrative holistic dentist to address any possible issue(s) that may hinder my healing. From my deep research, my best reference is Dr. Stuart Nunnally who stablishes is clinic in Texas.
I truly feel from my heart and from everything that I could learn and experience throughout the last three years, that this is the shortest and most effective path to recover my health.
However, I have not enough money to go temporarily to United States of America and to pay for the treatments and procedures, and for the guidance and support. For that reason, I am asking for money to make it possible, as my health condition really takes away the strength that I need to get the needed amount of money from my effort and hard work.
My most pure, true and profound wish is to recover my health, so that I can end the pain I have been living with for the last nine years and be allowed to manifest the life that I truly desire from my heart and that encounters with my purpose.
Because of everything I have been telling, I wish to go and to recover my health, I wish to learn the most I can from the healing experience, I wish to bring that knowledge with me and transform it into true help I can give to other people. This is truly what my heart tells me to do.
My motivation is so strong that I know for sure that I will recover my health. I keep doing my best to allow for my recovery.
For everything I have been presenting, this is my request:
I ask, from my heart, for monetary donations, so that I can achieve my most profound and pure wish – recover my health. I need to get at least 75.000€ for the following:
. to go to United States of America and stay for the minimum time needed to implement the healing protocols and procedures that I truly believe that will allow me to recover my health;
. to pay for the regular professional guidance of the holistic health practitioners and professionals that I look to go after;
. to pay for the full implementation of the healing protocols and procedures and for everything that it may require (supplementation, complementary procedures, diagnostic exams, and other possibly necessary aspects).
The announced needed amount of money is an estimate. I may need to get more money (or less) according to the necessities that come from the course of the treatments and from the time needed to my healing. Thus, it is a starting point; it is an amount that safely allows me to proceed.
As a starting point of my healing path, I intend to realize a deep comprehensive diagnostic at Sophia Health Institute – a medical institute located in Washington and directed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, who is a pioneer at diagnosing and treating chronic disease. That diagnosing phase includes the diagnostic procedure Autonomic Response Testing, which was developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt and allows to precisely diagnose and determine the root cause(s) of chronic disease. This is truly my best reference for getting a valid diagnostic, as most toxicity diagnostic procedures are unreliable and inaccurate, and often result on false negatives. Furthermore, this diagnostic isn’t specific for diagnosing toxicity (such as heavy metal toxicity) and if there is another root cause(s) to my condition, they will certainly be revealed. I truly feel to be of extreme importance for me to have a diagnostic, so that it would be finally possible to precisely target the healing protocol to the root cause(s) of my health condition. That diagnostic phase at Sophia Health Institute may take up to three weeks, and it’s price can rise up to 24.000 USD, according to the time needed.
Right after that diagnostic phase at Sophia Health Institute, I intend to move to the city of Santa Cruz, located in the state of California, to implement the healing protocol. I intend to go through the healing protocol with the guidance of a local holistic health practitioner (not certified or official) who learnt, among many others, from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. I am looking to benefit from his comprehensive and integrative knowledge and of the possibility to get close and regular guidance, as I never could have. From all the research that I have been doing for such a long time, I truly believe and feel that a holistic approach will allow me to recover in the shortest period of time. Furthermore, it would be a lot more expensive for me to go through the healing protocol at Sophia Health Institue. The healing protocol takes a minimum period of three months. The guidance expense is for those three months is 10.000 USD, and the minimum needed supplementation costs around 3.000 USD (1.000 USD per month). The level of supplementation could be higher, according to the necessities and the goals of the protocol. A higher level of supplementation will also allow for more profound and faster results. For that reason, I will try to be allowed to afford for an optimum level of supplementation that meets all the necessities, that allows for the optimization of the protocol and, therefore, for a most effective recovery. A higher level of supplementation necessarily means a higher cost. It may also be necessary to implement complementary therapeutic procedures, or to go through intermediate diagnostic procedures. For all of that reasons, I look to get 16.000 USD to meet all the possible expenses required to fully go through the healing protocol.
Because of the highly possible connection between my health condition and the toxic load that possibly resulted from the dental procedures done in the past (and in particular in 2010), I also feel to be of extreme importance to have my teeth fully examined by an integrative holistic dentist, to ensure right from the beginning that any teeth problem that may hinder my recovery is eliminated. My best reference is Dr. Stuart Nunnally, who’s medical clinic Nunnally, Freeman and Owens is located in Texas. In the past, I had to get four of my teeth with root canals extracted, because they contained silent infections that were already causing damage to the jaw bone. Although my dentist says that there are no evident problems, I truly feel that the remaining five root canals aren’t healthy, because my gums are often inflamed and I often feel a kind of pulsing sensation that goes from those teeth to my throat and to my head. I also feel to be important to have all of the toxic amalgam fillings replaced by clean ones. I will shortly send a full X-ray of my mouth to the clinic of Dr. Stuart Nunally so that I could be informed, at a first moment, of the main needed dental procedures that I may have to get done and also of the cost of those procedures.
I am aware that the time needed for my recovery will be longer than those first three months. For that reason, I also intend to get the needed amount of money to keep implementing the healing protocol for an additional three month period. In that way, I look to ensure the secure stabilization of my health and the establishment of a solid condition that allows me, at the following time, to start working again and, therefore, to be able to pay for the following expenses from the money I can get from my work.
During that expected total period of six months, I will need to cover the minimal expenses of accommodation, specific food, basic daily needs and travelling.
To ensure all of these needed support, I need to get the minimal amount of 75.000€, estimated according to the following:
. Comprehensive diagnostic at Sophia Health Institute:
Up to 24.000 USD
. Inherent expenses to the implementation of the holistic healing protocol for the first three months, including guidance, supplementation and possibly needed complementary therapeutic procedures:
. Inherent expenses to the implementation of the holistic healing protocol for the following three months, including guidance, supplementation and possibly needed complementary therapeutic procedures:
. Dental procedures at Nunnally, Freeman and Owens medical clinic (if necessary):
Cost yet not known
. Expenses with specific food, according to the therapeutic directions:
800 USD x 6 months = 4.800 USD (estimate)
. Accommodation expenses:
. Expenses with basic daily needs:
600 USD x 6 months = 3.600 USD (estimate)
. Travelling expenses:
3.000 USD (estimate)
Cumulative amount (USD) = 76.400 USD
Cumulative amount (€) = 69.000€
Taxes (10% of the total amount) = 6.900€
Total amount (cumulative + taxes) = 75.900€
(the estimated amount doesn’t yet include expenses from possibly needed dental procedures)
It truly means much to me to recover my health - it is about ending my pain and suffering; it is about being able to transform my healing experience into help I can give to other people. I truly have no words to describe how important this is for me. For that reason, I am currently putting all of my effort on gathering at least the announced amount of money to go towards what I truly feel and believe to be the most effective and shortest path to my recovery. This path is really my best hope.
When I recover my capacities, I will be able to keep walking by my own and I would be profoundly happy if I can give the help back. I truly will, from my heart.
I have no words to express my profound and sincere gratitude for everyone who helps me by making a donation.
Thank you, from my heart.
