How Donna Riviello attained 75 percent reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome pain relief. This is her RSD testimonial.
Donna Riviello, a 50 year old LPN surviving with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Pain (RSD) for over 17 years was in constant pain. Additionally, she had been diagnosed with CFS, TOS, fibromyalgia along with other chronic pain syndromes.
Donna was the victim of both hospital errors and abuse in 2005. As a result of the trauma and complications, her RSD flared up throughout her body. She lived in bed for 20 - 22 hours a day for the next two years.
As a result of the flair up, Donna started to experience other health problems. Constipation, rectal bleeding, weight gain, cachexia (muscle wasting) and muscle atrophy of her left leg. These complications were the result of dehydration, medications, inactivity and poor diet choices. Comfort foods won out over healthy eating.
She was a prison with out bars. The prison was her body and mind. Intolerable pain ruled her every waking moment. Depression and guilt were her driving forces. Every day she continued living, she was prolonging death, not her life. She did not have a life.
She had no pain relief and felt hopeless and helpless, in spite of all the treatment she went through. In the 17 years she suffered, she had 55 nerve blocks, 9 rib cage nerve blocks, PT, OT, acupuncture, intra-spinal epidural catheters, trigger point injections not to mention what seemed like a shovel full of medications.
Then in May of 2007 she heard of the Water Cures protocol. In two weeks, her pain had decreased 75%. She had never seen even close to this amount of relief using the the health care system or any of the treatments she had been through. He depression was no more. The other health concerns also disappeared. She lost 28 pounds of unwanted weight over the next 5 months.
She now knows the most basic of nursing diagnoses that is the cause behind most diseases. It is called 'fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than body needs.'
You can check out her story on WILK talk radio or on 22 News in North East Pennsylvania. The Water Cures protocol provided her the reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome pain reduction she so longed for. In her case, the pain did not totally go away but she had an improvement.
