Hi all, I recently ordered the program system after seeing the infomercial on TV and realizing that perhaps I am causing myself a lot of the issues I have been living with for the past 2 years.

In 2008 I was in a 4 car pile up on a major highway on my way home. I was a sophomore in college at the time and led a very healthy and happy life. In the accident I suffered from a head injury and blacked out. The police working the scene were more focused on the girl behind me who was trapped in her car, than in checking me out. Needless to say, I wasn't treated right away. That coupled with the fact that I didn't have the greatest roommates in the world meant I went 3 days without being able to move until my mother could come to take me to a hospital.

I suffered a concussion that caused complications with my memory, balance, speech, motor skills etc. and was in a neck brace for a month. The doctors, however, said that though it could take up to a year for the concussion to heal, I should be pretty much fine.

Unfortunately for problems have ultimately gotten worse since the accident. I have struggled to maintain my lifestyle at school, I had a hard time comprehending lessons, reading and retaining information, and in controlling my emotions, all things I was told were common with a head injury. However, I was depressed because I knew that I had lost a part of myself. I had always been a straight A student and I was now having difficulty with basic addition and subtraction.

To top it off I was in constant neck, back and shoulder pain from the accident...I went to multiple doctors and still have trouble moving my head and sitting for long periods of time. The constant aching in my joints, legs, hands and knees was written off as fibromyalgia and I was given pain meds to take as well.
I also have suffered constantly since with nausea, dizziness, vertigo, and a poor appetite...
I went to neurologists, chronic disease specialists etc.
I have been mistreated for neurological lymes disease (for which I have all the symptoms)
...told I have the symptoms for MS and Lupus...
and have even developed tremors that resulted in what looked like full blown seizures.
I get bells palsy of one side of my face, and have even at times of severe stress (like finals) gone into full on stroke-like symptoms where one side of my body gives out and I can't form words, I black out, and my body goes numb.

I have been living in fear for 2 years. No doctor has been able to tell me what is wrong with me or why I keep getting worse. I have been on tons of medications...I even spent time in the hospital on 48hr watch so they could monitor my symptoms.

The results have all come back that there is nothing that they can find wrong with me. I have been living helplessly wondering whether or not I was going to die, whether i was crazy, or whether I would even find a cure...

I would never wish this on myself so it is hard to see how it could be all in my head, but recently I was told that this could all be because of PTSD from the accident....

I didnt even realize how anxious I have been these past few years...but seeing the informercial made me realize that I may have found the solution to my prayers.....

I am very excited for the chance to get my life back....and I am hoping that this is it.

Has ANYONE else suffered from any of these symptoms only to find out it was all anxiety and stress that was causing it?? Tremors? Pseudo-Seizures?

Please let me know....

Hello CLM,
First I'm sorry no one has answered yet, though the fastest way to get responses is to put this in general anxiety column. =)
BUt moving on, first, OH my GOODNESS! You poor thing!! What a heck of a couple years you've had! =(
kudos to you for hanging in there, first of all, and you are right to continue to search for answers. One thought I did have is do you know of a good chiropractor? Their specialty is the spine, and all the nerves that run through it. I have found some great ones who are gentle. I recommend setting up an appointment where you tell them, " you may not be ajusting me today, lets talk first". The professional ones will want a through medical history and take the time to work with you.
Secondly, yes, stress can mimic all kinds of diseases, our bodies will respond differently and sometimes delayed to all kind of events in our lives. Meaning months will go by and symptoms will surface. ( at least that's true for me)
If you punch in " anxiety sypmtoms, or physical symtoms" under the "FIND" button, you'll see an amazing aray of different things, from temporary loss of vision, to numbness and tingling, and nerve stuff lasting months! Difficulty breathing, to headaches, can't swallow to tremors, to uncontrollable shaking, crying, anger, depression, etc.
The list could go on for days.
Order the program, and start taking those baby steps to walking out of panic and anxiety. Learning self help tools and connecting with others ( like us) whom deal with it too.
You have quite a bit on your plate, I mean you truly have some physical injures from the accident, but that doesn't mean it's permenent, this time next year you could be feeling back to your old self, or maybe 5 yrs, only your body knows how long your individual healing will take. But know your not alone.
Then after the accident, you have your struggle with school, and stress and dealing with doctors and tests. YOu have alot to be upset about. But know there are plenty of people who are sympathetic, willing to share with you, and listen. It sounds like stress really has compounded your injuries.
I"ll pray for you, and your healing, know nothing is ever lost to Jesus, and I know after dealing with anxiety for over 20yrs, it all gets better, and you learn more everyday, and you'll get stronger every day. Keep searching, an keep praying, your definetly moving in the right direction. Much peace and prayers to you on your journey, you never know what may come of your experiance. You may someday find yourself counseling someone else who is going through some thing similar. And chances are your NOT the first person to deal with things like this. SO keep going, Again, godbless you, and be with you, and keep me posted on your progress.

This is a story one person from church told us about that I wanted to share with you all:

When you awake alive in the morning, thank Creator for it.

“Let me explain the problem science has with religion.”
The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand.

“You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?”

“Yes sir,” the student says.

“So you believe in God?”


“Is God good?”

“Sure! God’s good.”

“Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?”


“Are you good or evil?”

“The Bible says I’m evil.”

The professor grins knowingly. “Aha! The Bible!” He considers for a moment. “Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?”

“Yes sir, I would.”

“So you’re good...!”

“I wouldn’t say that.”

“But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn’t.”

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. “He doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?”

The student remains silent. “No, you can’t, can you?” the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. “Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?”

“Err, yes,” the student says.

“Is Satan good?”

The student doesn’t hesitate on this one. “No.”
“Then where does Satan come from?”

The student falters. “From God”

“That’s right. God made Satan, didn’t he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?”

“Yes sir.”

“Evil’s everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything, correct?”


“So who created evil?” The professor continued, “If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.”

Again, the student has no answer. “Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?”

The student squirms on his feet. “Yes.”

“So who created them?”

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. “Who created them?” There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized. “Tell me,” he continues onto another student. “Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?”

The student’s voice betrays him and cracks. “Yes, professor, I do.”

The old man stops pacing. “Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?”

“No sir. I’ve never seen Him.”

“Then tell us if you’ve ever heard your Jesus?”

“No, sir, I have not.”

“Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?”

“No, sir, I’m afraid I haven’t.”

“Yet you still believe in him?”


“According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?”

“Nothing,” the student replies. “I only have my faith.”
“Yes, faith,” the professor repeats. “And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.”

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own. “Professor, is there such thing as heat?”


“And is there such a thing as cold?”

“Yes, son, there’s cold too.”

“No sir, there isn’t.”

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. “You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don’t have anything called “cold”. We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.”

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.

“What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?”

“Yes,” the professor replies without hesitation. “What is night if it isn’t darkness?”

“You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? That’s the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?”

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. “So what point are you making, young man?”

“Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.”

The professor’s face cannot hide his surprise this time. “Flawed? Can you explain how?”

“You are working on the premise of duality,” the student explains. “You argue that there is life and then there’s death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought.” “It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.” “Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?”

“If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.”
“Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?”

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

“Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?”

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided. “To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.” The student looks around the room. “Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor’s brain?” The class breaks out into laughter. “Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor’s brain, felt the professor’s brain, touched or smelt the professor’s brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.” “So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?”

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. “I Guess you’ll have to take them on faith.”

“Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,” the student continues. “Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?” Now uncertain, the professor responds, “Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man’s inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.”

To this the student replied, “Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.”

The professor sat down.

The student was Albert Einstein.
Albert Einstein wrote a book titled God vs. Science in 1921.

I actually just bought the program for 1/2 off.

I received an email back in December, hesitated, but now ordered it.

And I am anxious over my chronic disease too. Have been for 5 years. You are not alone there, my friend.
