In June 2009 while waiting to start my shift, my partner advised me that my skin was extremely yellow along with the whites of my eyes. This, along with a week of itching all over my body with no sign of a rash, caused me to go directly to the emergency room. After a blood test, the doctor advised me that my billirubin level was a 10.0 (normal levels are .5-.8) Over the month of June, I was given several blood tests and doctors visits that didn't give me any answers to help with the healing process of what appeared to be a nonviral Hepatitis. My mother was a patient at Coombs Chiropractic, which lead me to a non medicated healing process.
Going to get adjustments not only helped relieve pressure and pain, but it was an education on how the body heals. I believe the adjustments are the reason for my fast recovery. As the months went on, my billirubin when from a 10.0 to a 7.0 to a 5.0 and then finally a 2.3. I would tell anyone that at first I thought of chiropractors as meaningless, but now I know it was the best thing that was introduced to me! I am healthier today because of Chiropractic!
