began in June of 1996. Being a type A personality, I had
a career, went to school part time and served on several
community boards. Additionally, my husband worked long
hours leaving the responsibilities of raising two
children and running the household to me. Even when I
tried to relieve stress, I immersed myself in more
activities like quilting and ceramics class. Exhibiting
typical type A values, I expected perfection in life and
everything was black or white. I was too busy to think
about the “grey”. My own health care was no different. I
believed in over the counter medicines and prescription
drugs to quickly ease any symptoms. Prior to my
accident, one antibiotic caused a flu-like reaction
which I ignored. My need to cover my symptoms well
enough to stay busy became my downfall.
In the beautiful June weather, I was on the deck mixing pool chemicals.
As usual, I was in hurry and I didn't have my glasses
on. While mixing water in the bucket, my hand slipped
and I dropped the nozzle into the mixture of water and
chemicals. I rushed inside to rinse my eyes and face. I
called the eye doctors explaining the chemicals that had
touched my face. They flushed my eyes again and sent me
home. The next morning, I woke to discover my eye sealed
shut. Feeling confident that it was dry from all the
flushing, I applied an antibiotic. In seconds, the same
antibiotic that I used before had caused yet another
reaction. This time, however, it had near fatal
My suffering went way beyond a few moments or even days of discomfort. I
was living my own personal nightmare. I became
completely hypersensitive to everything in my world. I
reacted to everything in my environment. I was unable to
eat or even breathe without assistance. I was in control
of nothing. I was a victim to the air and chemicals
surrounding me. I yearned to get out of the black hole
into which I was rapidly descending; I was passed from
doctor to doctor. One doctor even refused to treat me
for fear I would die during treatment. Still there were
Eventually, Dr. Greenlaw came into my life. He did everything within his
power to help me, and I would not be here today if he
had not had the vision of using holistic alternatives in
a conventional world. He sent me to a holistic clinic in
Chicago. Everything mainstream medicine had to offer
caused me to become more hypersensitive. I had even
suffered formaldehyde poisoning from one of the tests. I
was slipping into a world of pain and anguish.
After I left Dr. Greenlaw’s care, I experimented with different
modalities to help stabilize my health. Nutrition,
homeopathy, and guided imagery made up the foundation of
my care. I was exposed to a new world of healing and was
on my way to becoming stable.
While a patient at Northwestern Hospital’s allergy unit, which is the
best in the Midwest, they reviewed my records. It became
increasing clear that there was no hope. The doctors
were afraid to do further testing for fear of sending me
into shock. Their only recommendation was to put me on
stronger steroids, even though they weren't sure my
liver could handle such a heavy dose. The only advice
they had was to continue with the holistic approach I
As I worked with the holistic approaches, I had been able to eat at least
400 calories a day and things were stabilizing. Once
again, however, I was attacked by the world around me in
my own backyard. At the time, I did not realize that my
husband had sprayed the yard with weed killer. I went
outside to enjoy the beautiful day and decided to pull a
few weeds. I couldn't find my gardening gloves so I
thought I would just pull a few. Reaching down I
realized that they had just been sprayed. My immune
system was not able to handle another chemical exposure.
This truly was my darkest hour. I began to lose weight
at the rate of several pounds a week again since I was
not able to eat more than 400 calories a day. My corneas
turned from a hazel green to black. My cheeks were
sunken on my pale face.
Convinced I had slipped to a place of no return, things got even worse
when I was exposed to natural gas. The pilot light had
been left on in the kitchen and the house filled with
gas. My immune system, at this point, was devastated.
After many trips to the emergency room, I had given up
all hope. I was unable to attend events for my children
and no longer able to work. It seemed I had lost my
children and my identity.
Desperation and despair filled my days and nights. I weighed 99 pounds.
During my darkest hour, I couldn't even use a simple bar
of soap. My clothes had to be washed with plain water
and separated from the family laundry. I spent most of
my time in rooms with air purifiers in order to breathe
comfortably. I could not touch door handles, drawers or
kitchen utensils that had been washed in dish soap or
touched by someone coming in from the pool deck. Our gas
stove had to be replaced with electric due to gas
exposure. I barely had the energy to walk from one room
to the next. Any chemicals, deodorants, perfumes or
sprays that my children came in contact with I would
react to. My diet consisted of water, chicken or turkey
breasts and baked potatoes. I prayed everyday for a
healing path. When I stopped to listen, I was told that
I had the key to healing inside me. My faith and prayers
to St. Therese kept me alive and gave me something to
After hearing this hope filled message, a friend who I hadn't seen in
months came to visit. As she walked in the door she
announced that her daughter had seen me and told her to
visit before they buried me.
As I heard those shocking words, I knew deep inside that I had indeed
found something that would help me and that death would
not be my fate. That was one of the first times I shared
the story of my healing. The treatment was specifically
designed to desensitize you from your allergies and in
the process boost your immune system. The process is
called NAET. Dr. Jackie Bashleben and her staff were
lifesavers. Her care and kindness went way beyond what
anyone would ever expect. Dr. Jackie has a kind and
gentle spirit. Her knowledge of Chinese medicine and
acupuncture were a foundation I could always count on.
It took many months for me to gain ground. Her
encouragement and care offered me hope that one-day I
could return to life in the real world. I felt like part
of her family. She was always there in emergencies and
there were a quite a few. Each emergency was dealt with
grace and dignity, humor and tears. She always knew the
right thing to say and do. We began to conquer each
allergen one at a time. My physical state was improving.
The color of my eyes became clearer each week. With Dr.
Jackie's help I realized that in order to move forward
to a complete recovery I had to make that mind- body
connection that I had failed to see all those years.
I then began to see a therapist that used guided imagery, Reiki and
flower essence to treat her patients. She had practiced
12 years of mainstream psychology and had seen the
benefits to using other methods to balance the mind and
body. She was my strength. Rose was a true gift from
heaven. Our sessions always kept me on my path of
healing. Her spirit is one of compassion and warmth.
Until I acknowledged the impact my emotions had on my
health I knew I couldn't move forward. I had to look
back at all the stress in my life going back to my
childhood. I saw all the unhealthy patterns that led my
immune system to collapse. I spent 5 years of
uncertainly and desperation learning how to survive and
build a healthy lifestyle.
Moving away from that black and white world of medicine led me to
discover that to be truly balanced means acknowledging
that our emotions play a huge role in the healing
process. Whether they are from a current situation or
from our past, the mind body connection is a powerful
healer. I have learned that illness and misfortune are
not the enemies; they are the teachers by which we
learn, grow and evolve.
Mediation allowed me to finally breakdown the emotional and physical
blocks I had built all those years. Breaking down the
fear, anger and depression were all important keys to my
success. I have returned to an active lifestyle. I enjoy
watching my daughter’s sports activities. Three or four
times a week I exercise and also enjoy more leisure
activities like quilting, gardening and golf.
A traumatic illness led me to holistic medicine. Acupuncture, homeopathy,
Reiki, guided imagery, mediation and Flower Essence were
all powerful tools I used along my healing journey. I
survived by walking through my darkest hour.
When I allowed the light within to come through it led me to a place of
well-being. I found a place of balance and peace.
