Sarah Chambers didn’t believe that she would ever recover. The remedy was supposed to be practical -- surgery to remove the excruciating peptic ulcers followed by antibiotics. The ulcers were gone. However, the pain returned.
It felt like knots in her stomach. And since two-thirds of it had been removed, everything she ate dumped rapidly into her small intestine where it remained undigested. “I would have to drink hot water to move it,” she says, adding that her condition left her feeling lethargic and miserable.
Certainly, this was no way for the sprightly 26-year-old single mother of two children to live. Despite standing 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 105 pounds, Sarah was determined to find a glimmer of hope in at least one doctor. But, what she found seemed more like a death sentence.
"They told me I would have to live like that for the rest of my life,” she says, and was instructed to take Mylanta.
For 25 years, the former day spa owner kept her battle a secret. She often shied away from dinner invitations to friends’ houses fearing embarrassment by the foul odor she would release had she used their bathrooms.
One day, while working at the spa, a client told Sarah about a homeopathy center she’d recently visited. Hopeful, Sarah immediately made an appointment. The following week, the doctor ran a series of tests. What he later revealed surprised her.
“He discovered that the antibiotics I had taken after surgery had killed all of the natural bacteria," she says. “He also found that I had no enzymes in my stomach to break down the food.”
As a remedy, the doctor gave her Acidophilus to restore the bacteria in her stomach, Ultra Clear Sustain to replenish the enzymes, and a B-12 shot to boost her energy. Within three days, Sarah was eating again without the aid of hot water.
Since that day in 1997, Sarah, now 66 and completely healed, has made a lifestyle change. She’s cut out processed meats and sugars. She cooks fresh foods, and eats fruits, vegetables and natural herbs. She also refers to the book, “Eat Right For Your Type” for additional guidance.
The day Sarah Chambers was able to eat again was by far an awakening. More appropriately, a testimony.
"I want to help people change their eating habits based on what I know healed me,” she says.
