|"After experiencing a barrage of health issues over the past two years that includes 27 hospitalizations in 24 months. Let me give you a rundown of the health issues I’ve had to deal with over the past two years.
I was bit by a brown recluse spider on my big toe back in November 2011. Since I am a diabetic, this caused a nasty infection/cellulitis in my right foot and partially up my right leg. I was hospitalized for 9 days in early December having very strong antibiotics pumped through my body. Just to give you an idea of what my body was battling…the infection was staph and MRSA. Unfortunately, the antibiotics weren’t enough to prevent the amputation of the toe due to the infection going to the bone resulting in osteomyelitis. After I was sent home from the amputation I had nurses coming out to my home for about 4 months checking my vitals, looking for signs of infection, monitoring how well the wound was healing as well as changing the dressings.
February 2012 – Hospitalized due to the infection/cellulitis flaring up. Once again more antibiotics being administered through an IV.
March 2012 - I had an appointment with my primary care doctor. For a couple of days prior to the appointment I had been experiencing chest pain. When I went to my appointment with the doctor the nursing staff had taken my vitals. My blood pressure was pretty high and my heart rate was higher than normal. They waited a few minutes and took my vitals again…the blood pressure and heart rate was still running high. The doctor wrote a script on her prescription pad with the directions of “go directly to the ER from here”. So, off to the ER my husband and I went. I ended up being admitted to the hospital for 2 weeks having a couple of blood transfusions and open heart surgery (triple bypass) due to blockages.
April 2012 - I went back into the hospital to have some more surgery on my right foot. The wound vac that was assisting with healing the wound on my foot wasn’t functioning quite right resulting in some leakage and overgrowth of skin and tissue. The antibiotics also didn’t quite take care of the osteomyelitis that was in the metatarsal. My orthopedic surgeon ended up removing part of the metatarsal to eradicate the osteomyelitis. After a few days in the hospital, I was sent home with a PICC line so the antibiotics could be administered intravenously. Three days later, I was instructed by my home healthcare nurse to go to the ER because one of the ports on my PICC line wouldn’t flush. We went back to the ER and the doctor there ordered some tests including a CAT scan of the chest and a Doppler scan of my right arm. He came into the exam room a little while later and told us that I had a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis - blood clot) in my right arm and a PE (Pulmonary Embolism) in my left lung. This resulted in me spending another 11 days in the hospital with 4 of those days being in the ICU because my blood pressure was dropping too low. During this hospitalization, they needed to do a lot of blood tests on me because they were giving me shots of Heparin that became Lovenox and they had me taking Coumadin so they had to keep a close eye on the clotting time of my blood. The bad part was the veins in my left arm was starting to collapse or “blow” when they would stick a needle in it and I was presenting a challenge in getting my blood. The right arm was “off limits” for anything to be inserted due to the DVT in it.
June 2012 – Hospitalized with infection/cellulitis in the right foot and a broken toe.
July 2012 - Hospitalized due to chest pain.
August 2012 – Hospitalized due to chest pain. This resulted in having a heart catheterization and having stents put in the LAD.
October 2012 – Hospitalized 3 times for heart issues…elevated heart rate, chest pains, and abnormal blood pressure.
December 2012 - Hospitalized 3 more times for a PE in the right lung and heart issues.
January 2013 - Hospitalized twice for internal bleeding and chest pain.
February 2013 - Hospitalized for chest pain and a heart catheterization. There were some blockages but nothing was done about them.
March 2013 - Hospitalized for chest pain and abnormal heart rate. Apparently, I also had a partially collapsed lung which resulted in going through breathing treatments for a few days while I was in the hospital.
May 2013 – Hospitalized for chest pain and elevated heart rate.
July 2013 – Hospitalized for chest pain and abnormal heart rate.
August 2013 – Hospitalized for chest pain and elevated heart rate. Had a blood transfusion because hemoglobin was too low. Had another heart catheterization and stent put in the Circumflex. Doctor informed me that my blood lab results were a mess and my kidney function was at 36 percent.
September 2013 - started taking Prodovite.
October 2013 – Hospitalized for chest pain and elevated heart rate. Resulted in having another heart catheterization and stent put in the LAD. Doctor told me my lab results were good…too good. He thought there was a mistake. So he ran the blood labs a second time again and came back with the same results. My kidneys went from operating at 36% back up to 100%. I’m still slightly anemic but not like I was previously. The only difference between the August and October hospitalizations was that I had started taking Prodovite in September 2013. There is medical proof that Prodovite is working for me.
November 2013 – Hospitalized for chest pain and blood pressure too low. The blood labs looked very good.
December 2013 – Hospitalized twice for chest pain and the blood lab work continued to look very good. So good that there is reason to look into stopping several more prescription medications.
I have to say that I was skeptical of a supplement being able to make any kind of significant impact on my body and health. But since I began taking Prodovite in September 2013, I have experienced a big improvement in my health. From the very first ounce that I swallowed I could actually feel it working… and now I no longer feel like I have sludge running through my veins. In just two short months, my energy level has increased and my mental concentration level has improved. As a result of the multiple blood lab results showing consistent improvement, my doctor has removed some of the medications that I had been prescribed. The bottom line is Prodovite has definitely improved my health since I started taking it in September 2013, and I have the medical proof to back up everything I’ve said."
