Last April I went through a series of doctor’s appointments and tests confirming a medical condition and a prognosis from 3 doctors that it would be very difficult for me to conceive a child. Refusing to accept this as an end (or the beginning of a very long trail through infertility drugs), my husband and I prayerfully decided that we would do everything possible that we could naturally before turning to infertility drugs to bring my body to a place where I could conceive on my own. Several friends referred me to TI Bishop for consult. I didn’t really understand exactly what she did… but I trusted my friends and so we made my first appointment.
As I sit to write this, my little 18-week-old baby continues to grow in my womb with no complications to report to date! To say that I am thankful that my path crossed with this exceptional woman is an understatement. It has been a gift beyond measure.
Not only am I pregnant, but I also feel better than EVER before. I have experienced healing in my body that I didn’t think was possible. I used to experience headaches daily, low energy levels, and allergies that were at times unbearable. All of these symptoms have either gone away completely or reduced greatly due to my partnership for health with TI. This didn’t happen overnight… or even with one visit. It was a series of visits and two committed people working to uncover my optimal health.
It continues to be amazing to me the objectivity of the measure that TI uses to detect what is going on in my body as well as what will be helpful for me to get better. You and I could have the exact same problem, but our course of treatment would vary significantly depending on what our bodies respond to. Though this is true in the medical community, the only way to see what treatment will help is to try the drug. With TI, she is able to test different options to see what will help you up front. It is amazing!! I have never felt such a strong alliance for my health with another health professional. She listens… REALLY listens to what I have to say each time I go into her office. I have never felt so validated. There are so many little things that I just thought I had to live with. I have learned that there is so much more to the quality of my health and life that can be uncovered. I feel as though I have been empowered to take control of my own health. And I truly feel like I have a partner in that venture. I also know that TI genuinely cares for me and about my health. Her excitement when I shared with her the news of our pregnancy ranked among that of my closest friends!
I am so thankful
