Incredible Things, Said By Incredible People
Last summer I twisted my back and fractured a disc, which was very painful. My primary care doctor is Dr James H. Silverblatt of Mentor, Ohio. He has been my doctor for 18 years. Jim knows more about me than I do. He was reading about a medicine called Naltrexone, and after a long study, he thought some of the ingredients in Naltrexone may be beneficial to my condition. I said OK Doc, “Let’s go for it!”
I started taking one Naltrexone 4mg every night before bed. This was back in February of this year. After about a week or so, I noticed changes in my movements. I was able to control my feet. I was beginning to stand straight up, and I was walking like a normal person. I started walking around in my house without my cane. About 3 weeks ago, I was feeling pretty good. I did something I hadn’t done in 35 years. I ran.
I ran from my utility room, thru the dining room, thru the kitchen down the hallway, in the bedroom, thru the bathroom into the next bedroom, back to the hallway, thru the kitchen and dining room, to the utility room. I did it in 8 seconds. Do I say this is a cure for M. S., no, no, I won’t say that. I’ll still have M.S. the day they plant me in the ground. I am enjoying some of the movements I haven’t felt in 30 years.
I am currently changing all of the lightbulbs to L.E.D bulbs which requires me to climb a step ladder. I could always climb the ladder, but I couldn’t let go to free my hands, so I could not change the bulbs in the ceiling lights. Last week I changed those bulbs.
I’m not alone in my house, I have “Angie”. Angie is a 11‐year‐old blind basset hound, she keeps me busy taking care of her. When I shop, I shop at stores that have electric wheel chairs. It is easier to load and unload the car now.
Thanks Doc for thinking outside the box and coming up with Naltrexone. Life is much easier for me."
initial appointment and resulting laboratory findings, Dr. Silverblatt was able to determine, within moments, how to treat the various issues I was
facing. Two weeks into his assigned regimen and I was simply amazed at how much better I felt. Within a month’s timeframe, I was no longer
falling asleep after resting for five minutes; I have found I am able to
function at a higher capacity with an abundance of energy – an experience I
haven’t had in quite a long time."
I finally decided to search for an internal medicine practitioner who might be open to a holistic approach to healing. I'm grateful I discovered Silverblatt Medical Associates. The staff are welcoming and helpful. And in Dr. Silverblatt I found a thorough, attentive physician whose expertise I could trust. During my first visit Dr. Silverblatt suggested a gluten-free diet could alleviate my sinus inflammation and debilitating fatigue. I was dubious but after a few days of gluten-free eating my symptoms started disappearing. I am amazed and thankful to feel so well and energetic again. Dr. Silverblatt also provided interesting reading material that's helping me further pursue a personal path to better health.
To anyone seeking the best of both worlds of wellness --- traditional medicine and functional medicine --- I encourage you to visit Silverblatt Medical Associates.”
