During a routine visit with my physician five years ago, I was told that my breathing sounded abnormal. He described the sound of my breathing as something comparable to the sound of rustling paper. With this symptom, my physician recommended that I receive a CT scan to provide further knowledge as to what was causing this abnormality. In spite of the information that I was trying to digest, depression did not actually set in until I was sent to see a pulmonologist for an open lung biopsy. After the procedure, I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. I was then informed that according to statistics, I only had 5 years to live—and there was nothing they could do.
I was given a death sentence.
In attempt to prolong my life, I was placed on a clinical trial and was given potent amino acids that only upset my stomach, making me much more uncomfortable. However, approximately two years ago, my chiropractor recommended that I look into a company called AST Enzymes. He told me that he knew of people who were using these products and claimed that they were producing excellent results and improving their quality of life. I figured that I had nothing to lose and decided to try Serracor-NK and Peptizyme.
After purchasing the product, I had numerous questions and would call often to speak to the nutritionist on staff. I wanted to know when I would notice results. She encouraged me to stay consistent with the product. I had my doubts; I did not know if I was just wasting money but sure enough, I began to see results two months after initially taking the product! I knew they were helping. My stamina had increased, my coughing decreased, and my quality of life had improved.
I have been using these enzymes for the two years. Not only has my coughing decreased but my breathing is better. I used to suffer from fibromyalgia flare up and flare ups due to cystitis of my bladder but I have yet to experience a flare up in the past two years that I have been using the product.
I don’t know what I would do without these enzymes. My current routine visits with my physicians are different. They’re surprised how well I’m doing! They tell me: “Keep staying active, it is really helping you”, but I laugh knowing that these results are because of these enzymes. I know if was not using these products, I would not be doing so well. The progression of the disease has slowed and I believe that I will exceed my five year death sentence. AST has not only provided me with products that gave me an improved quality of life but something a little more – Hope.
