CHRONICALLY HEALED: Kiki’s Chronic Illness Story

How I Overcame POTS and Lyme Disease: IV Therapy, Marijuana, and the Grace of God!

After being sick for 10 years, I am now alive healthy and thriving!
My healing journey was non-linear. Watch my full story to get the most out of what I learned from living with and overcoming a chronic illness.

I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS aka Dysautonomia), Lyme disease, and Babesia.

My symptoms were feeling faint (chronic pre-syncope), low blood pressure (hypotension), low blood volume (hypovolemia), nausea and stomach pain, chronic fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, social anxiety, cold hands and feet (cold extremities), sensitivities, brain fog, TMJ, neck pain, and more.

The treatments that helped me were:
– Biofeedback therapy (InnerBalance by HeartMath)
– Jugular Venoplasty (Transvascular Autonomic Modulation surgery)
– NUCCA Chiropractic
– TMJ Orthodontic Treatment
Paleo Diet
Supplements
Vitamin IV Therapy
– Medical Marijuana THC

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, none of these treatments would have helped if my heart was not open to receive healing. Spiritual and emotional health are interconnected to physical health. IT WAS ESSENTIAL for me to be healed spiritually before I could be healed physically.

As I grew closer in my relationship with Jesus, I grew closer to his healing. He healed my soul and strengthened me to be the overcomer God created me to be!

I am so excited to share with you that I was one of 80,000 online students chosen to be featured for GCU’s Thunder in All of Us commercial campaign!

I am earning my Bachelor’s degree in Christian Studies online at GCU, and after that I am planning on continuing to earn my Masters!

With my degree, I hope to help others spiritually who are dealing with chronic illnesses. My faith really helped me cope when I had a chronic illness disability for ten years. Now that I am fully healed, I feel compelled to help others who are in the same situation I was in. The doctors don’t tell you that a chronic illness will make you feel emotionally and spiritually drained, feeling hopeless and helpless. That is why I want to be there for others and lift them up with God’s hope and light!
