Author Nancy Seagal captivates her audience by sharing her deeply personal and highly informative true life story of unexplained illness, medical ignorance, and remarkable recovery.
For twelve years, Nancy was sick with an undiagnosed and repeatedly misdiagnosed illness. She was hospitalized a number of times for severe pain and intermittent paralysis. At times confined to a wheelchair or had to rely on a walker, and suffered from debilitating symptoms like fatigue, wide spread pain, muscle spasms, insomnia, and other ailments. Her career was severely impacted, her life put on hold every time she got sick. She went broke. Doctors at leading medical facilities told her she had fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis,and even a conversion reaction disorder. They told her the illness was neurological,they told her it was psychological, they told her it was all in her head. The doctors patronized and dismissed her.
What the doctors failed to recognize and what she did not find out for way too many years was this: She was suffering from a treatable ailment. She had been poisoned, and her diet was continuing to poison her body.
Fortunately, her story has a happy ending. But what took more than a dozen years to resolve favorably is currently a crisis situation for others. Because of the widespread contamination of our water supplies with mercury, a heavy metal toxic to the human body, many people the world over are suffering today from low-level mercury poisoning. They may have mild symptoms or they might suffer from serious disorders like Nancy did. Typically, they have no idea whatâ€™s wrong. And they are unaware that eating fish–supposedly healthy, low-fat, high omega-3 fatty acid, â€śbrain foodâ€ť fish–might just push them over the edge into the crisis zone. This is what happened to Nancy.
