Hi there my name is Steven Desantis. A little about me, the last 12 years of my life have been dedicated to health and fitness which has been a passion of mine ever since I got involved in the industry at the age of 18. It wasn't till five years ago that I started to get more scientifically involved with the human body. This is where the love turned into a passion for longevity and survival.
You see, when I was 16 years of age, I was diagnosed with an ulcer. Two years after that, I was diagnosed with two ulcers and let me tell you, it was brutal. Now, lets fast forward a few years of constant pain and discomfort to the age of 24, and I now am extremely sick and have been that way for a whole year and during that time doctors were baffled as to what was going on with me. That year goes by, I am now 25 years old and after further and extensive tests, they discover my ultimate nightmare which I didn't know was going to be one. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. This took my life to a whole different level.
I was put on medication and proceeded to get on with my life however, the disease had alternate plans. I was sick off and on and was not able to have the total freedom that I wanted due to the disease. It is now 2001 and I felt the wrath of my first crohn's attack which landed me in the hospital with tubes going in through my nose down into my stomach. I was in there for 4 days so the inflammation could subside. I was released and on my way to resume my life. Two and a half months later, it happened again and I was back in the hospital for 4 days. Same procedure was released but this time, I was given what I thought at the time was my saviour. I was put on Prednisone. Well if you don't know about this drug let me tell you that as good as it is at taking away inflammation and subsiding the pain, it can and will ruin your life.
The only way I could function and go to work everyday was to stay on this drug, so I did for six and a half years every single day. When I tried to come off, it sent shooting pains through my body and the washroom was my very best friend so I had to remain on the drugs if I was to make some sort of a living. It is now 2005 when all of a sudden totally out of the blue, I was struck with massive pains in my stomach so strong that it would knock me to the ground and I was forced to stay there because I could not stand up. It was so bad that the ambulance had to come and pick me up. I was in the hospital again for 5 days but this time my gastrointerologist told me that I have another problem. I have a spastic bowel which I found out was due to stress and boy was I going through a lot of that.
So here I am, my life is in the medical community's hands and I am not getting better so I had to do something and I did. I followed a man by the name of Paul Chek and he introduced me to a whole new way of nutrition. Actually, he was the one who told me that I better get off the prednisone because it will ruin my life, and yes he was right. So I started to follow him and it was having a big impact on me because through his teachings and my efforts to balance my PH levels, I was off the drugs and have been off them now for 3 years. I have won my battle with crohn's as long as I keep my healthy lifestye up.
Actually the disturbing thing is that at the time of the discovery with my first ulcer, all over my medical records dating back to 1987, there was a funny name that kept appearing. This name was Helicobactor Pylori. At the time I had no idea what it was. It wasn't till 2005 when I went to get tested for food intolerances and bacteria. Wouldn't you know it, I am being tested when the individual who runs the clinic tells me that my I have a bacteria in my body and the name was helicobactor pylori. I jumped and said what is that? It is all over my medical records dating back about 18 years. He told me this is what is causing your crohn's disease and that if I don't get rid of it, I wouldn't be alive to see my son grow up to the age of 15! I was scared so I started to implement some different changes in my diet, changes that would have me eat less acidic foods and more alkaline foods. This was very hard for me to do but I gave it a shot. It lasted only 5 weeks strict but I managed to keep it somewhat decent.
I was still off my drugs but I was falling apart. I felt and looked older than I was and I could not stay up past 8:00 in the evening. My life was a complete mess and I had to do something about it. This is when I discovered that the medical community was not there to help me but to benefit their pockets. I did some research and found that there is NO treatment or cure for helicobactor pylori. There is nothing the doctor's can give you that will kill this bacteria. The only thing that can kill it is balancing your ph levels, and all these years I was given a drug that was further putting my life at risk. You see we are born slightly alkaline by design and if you change that your health will begin to deteriorate.
My point to this story is, don't wait for something life threatening to happen before you try to make a change, don't wait for the doctor's to tell you that there is something wrong. We only have one life and we don't necessarily get a second chance. I am here to tell you that your health is more important than money, than your house, than your cars. If you don't have health you have nothing because you certainly can't buy it. I now enjoy taking care of my son's health along with all the other lives I have touched through my knowledge and my will to provide people who are suffering a fighting chance to live healthy. The doctors cannot and will not save you. Only you can save yourself by taking action.
I am here to say we all have the will to do whatever it is we want to do. Make a choice to live a healthy lifestyle and you will have a life of pure happiness because you are what you eat.
Feel free to comment or ask me any questions about health as I would love to help anyone that is in need of it.
I wanted to share this story with you because it is about me. This was my life and I know there are other people out there just like me so I wanted to talk about me so I can find other people that don't know where to turn to and help them succeed in their battles
Be Well and Stay Healthy
The difference between a successful person is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
