Hi, I'm Ash, Founder of Nutrigenomic Naturals®, I have personally overcome a few severe and debilitating, so called "incurable" autoimmune diseases and chronic pain through the power of Nutrigenomics, Integrative Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine and Epigenetic & Functional Medicine. This was out of pure desperation after conventional medicine failed to cure me or keep symptoms under control and left me with many intolerable side effects from the prescription drugs given to manage all my symptoms.
I went from wheelchair and bedridden, suffering with painful swollen joints, debilitating fatigue, chronic head and neck pain, painful muscle spasms, GI bleeding and many other symptoms, to being able to ditch almost all the meds and 90% of my symptoms thanks to alternative root-cause based treatments and lifestyle changes that allowed my body to heal, reverse the autoimmunity, lose 45lbs, become pain free again and get my life back.
The long list of issues I was diagnosed with are: Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Chronic Leukemia /blood cancer, Chronic Lyme Disease and its co-infections, Mold infections, Mycoplasma infections, Mercury poisoning, intestinal dysbiosis, Ulcerative Colitis, NSAID induced GI bleeding, Sepsis, Sepsis Induced Dysautonomia, Tachycardia, DVT blood clots, 5 Pulmonary emboli in my left lung, Occipital Neuralgia (painful muscle spasms in the back of my head), Trigeminal dysphoria (head, neck and shoulder muscle tension with Migraines), Hypothyroid/ Hashimotos, PCOS and insulin resistance. It was an overwhelming amount of issues that began at the young age of 18.
By the grace of God, my never ending drive to get well, amazing Doctors, conventional and alternative treatments and the power of Nutraceuticals, I am lucky to be alive and so grateful to be fully functional and thriving again. However, it did rob me of my young adulthood with many years of suffering and It took me years to discover and identify all my causes and address them one by one. It was a lot of trial and error in different treatments, diets, supplements, lifestyle changes, exercise, modalities and biohacking, but I never gave up, I kept fighting and searching for answers and I learned a ton in the process.
Throughout my suffering and healing journey, I became incredibly fascinated with all aspects of health and wellness and especially passionate about helping others suffering to discover and treat their root causes (instead of just suppressing symptoms with medications or supplements) to restore their health, like I did.
I'm a big advocate of being proactive and preventing illness as well. I share my personal story because I want to empower people to be their own health detective, find the root causes of their illness and pursue treating that instead of masking symptoms, because, in most cases, when you address and correct all the underlying root causes the body can absolutely reverse the issue and heal itself. Giving the body what it needs and removing what it doesn't, can provide amazing results. Treating genetic polymorphisms being expressed when neccessary can go a long way. Research, get 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. opinions, explore all the options until you find what works for you. Our goal is to help point people in the right direction, so they don't waste time suffering because of unnecessary medications with harmful side effects, harmful treatments or ineffective supplements.
I didn't have faith or 100% belief in any type of alternative medicine let alone Nutraceuticals, until I witnessed it save my Dad's life after he was given 6 months to live from stage 4 Cirrhosis and liver failure. I was not ready to accept my Dad's death at the young age of 54, so I researched persistently and thankfully found an amazing Integrative MD that ended up saving his life with a simple IV therapy that is popular in Europe, called the PK protocol; which contains 3 natural substances: Phosphatidylcholine (a lipid derived from soybeans), Glutathione and Folinic acid. It did a complete cellular detox and actually reversed most of the Cirrhotic/fibrotic tissue in his liver. He also took a few supplements, but it was primarily this IV therapy he did daily for 6 months. That was 14 years ago. It was a shocking and amazing miracle! He got a 2nd chance at life and he is doing well and thriving today. He no longer does the IV treatment (but did for 6 months), but still takes his nutraceuticals that help keep him well. His routine blood labs and scans reveal his liver still remains normal.
My own health crisis and my Father's were not my greatest suffering or inspiration though, that came years later when my family and I suddenly lost my Mother unexpectedly to chemo and radiation treatments for lung cancer, just 4 months after her shocking stage 4 metastatic cancer diagnosis. She had no symptoms and felt fine up until a couple weeks before being diagnosed. By that time, it had already spread from her lung cells to her bones causing back and hip pain (no lung symptoms). The diagnosis came much too late and unfortunately she did not have a fighting chance. She went into the hospital for diagnosis and never made it out. We did not get a chance to try all the effective alternative cancer treatments and cutting edge genetic immunotherapies. She passed at age 66, way too young and missed getting to meet or see her grandchildren grow up. Lung cancer is one of the many cancers that has no symptoms until it's already advanced, end stage.
What we saw and went through with her, no one should ever have to endure. It was a heartbreaking tragedy and the most awful experience to witness firsthand as one of her primary care givers. We tried so hard to help save her life. Her passing, of course, devastated my family and I. After a long grieving period and healing emotionally (as much as possible), I vowed to share her story to help prevent others from suffering the same fate. Naturally, cancer prevention and recovery is another strong passion of mine and a driving force behind my own anti-cancer lifestyle and my brand's line of supplements; getting proper nutrition and addressing your own genetic SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) can help keep you healthy. My Mother's legacy will live on through us and we vow to help as many people as we can by spreading awareness on prevention and effective treatments and therapeutic Nutraceuticals.
