Lyme and POTS for six years! See teenager walk for the first time and read her story!

This truly miraculous story just came to us this week! I want to share it with you to provide you with encouragement that even when six long years have gone by, such as in this beautiful 15 year old, that the seeming impossible is indeed possible! 

This recovery was not from the annihilation of bacteria. It was not from a canned treatment protocol that finally worked, but from the gradual repairing of an incredible range of issues in every aspect of her body. Under the skillful hands and brilliant creativity of natural treatments from the mind of Dr. Streit of the Hansa Center, health restoration was achieved! 

Here is the story of terrifying illness to restored health in Maren's mother own words...

"We are so excited to share Maren’s story of healing with you! On Friday, October 16th our 15 year old daughter Maren, stood up by herself and took her first step....she was able to walk again….and she hasn’t stopped walking since! It was a miraculous moment in her journey to optimum health that she has been on since she first became ill six years ago.

When Maren was 9 she developed neurological problems and excruciatingly painful neuropathy in her legs and feet. She recovered from the neuropathy but since then she’s had body and joint aches, headaches, nausea and fatigue. 

Two years ago, when she was 13, she woke up one morning with extreme dizziness causing her to vomit and was so exhausted that she couldn’t get out of bed without help. Her normal sensation of feeling like she was lying on the bed wasn’t there...she couldn’t feel the bed.

She had lost the feeling of being grounded and she felt like she was floating in space. She couldn’t feel where her limbs and head were in relationship to her body, it was such an unsettled feeling and it was hard for all of us to understand. 

Soon it became impossible for her to walk because of her fatigue, dizziness and not being able to feel where her body was in space. Eventually she couldn’t read and write and found it hard to even converse with us. She saw many doctors and specialists and was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and POTS. 

She was treated with a lot of conventional medications, antibiotics and therapies, but nothing relieved her symptoms and the unrelenting dizziness she had every minute of the day.

Last fall our prayers and research led us to the Hansa Center and that has truly been the greatest blessing. Maren started treatment there in October 2014, and we knew as soon as we came through the front doors that we were finally in the right place. The staff embraced us with care, compassion and understanding, and we could feel God’s love and joy coming through all of them. 

When we met Dr. Streit for the first time we were amazed, he explained that there were many systems in her body that were out of balance and that he would use different remedies to empower and give her body what it needed to heal itself. We truly learned more from him about her situation in one hour than we had in the past six years from the dozens of doctors we had seen. 

Through his wisdom and knowledge he had the ability to understand what she explained to him about her symptoms and used integrative ways to treat Maren as a whole person…body, mind and spirit.

Since our first visit, her symptoms have slowly and persistently improved and we’ve noticed positive changes from month to month with her fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues and pain. During the follow up visits with Dr. Streit he used innovative methods to help her feel her body as a whole and regain normal sensation. Her dizziness steadily improved and he helped her to be able to feel stable when standing at her last visit in September.

In Maren’s own words, “I felt major changes in my body after every appointment and now I am walking and playing with my horse again, I feel so good!! Most of the time I am not dizzy at all, I can feel my body and what I am sitting on, I have so much more energy! I never have headaches, nausea and my body is not in pain anymore. God truly worked though Dr. Streit by using his gifts to heal and teach my body, mind and spirit…it has been such a humbling experience to see God’s great love and power at work! Thank you Dr. Jernigan and all the staff and therapists at the Hansa Center…you have truly changed my life and not just my body!”
