Hello my name is Christina Tilton I am 32 years old. First of all I would like to share a little bit about my story. In the year of 1999, a virus name Transverse Myelitis attacked my nervous system at a C-5 C-6 level.
This virus caused me to have pain in my neck which in two hours paralyzed me from the neck down. The doctors told me I would be in the wheelchair for the rest of my life basically never walk again or have any movements as long as I live. The virus did a lot of nerve damage to my spinal cord and according to the Internet regarding this virus you really don’t get much back if anything. Some people are lucky to gain full recovery depending on where the virus hit them that. In my case, I’m one of the worst cases I had nothing from the neck down no movements at all. The virus came from a vaccine called the hepatitis B shot which I got when I was in the 8th grade.
Unfortunately, I did not learn this until years later. I was 14 years old at the time. To make Long story short The doctors were wrong! Even though it has been 18 years, July 3, 1999, I have gained a tremendous strength, my spinal cord and nerves are recovering, my brain is working with muscles, and so much more is happening that is not supposed to happen. Even though it has been almost 18 years, I do not count the first 10 years due to a marriage that failed.
My ex-husband did not help me too well during my recovery in those years. But God is in Control. Everything that Transverse Myelitis took from me I am gaining back. I have a physical therapist that knows a lot about this virus and has worked with other individuals that has been affected with the same virus. When my physical therapist heard about my case from another physical therapist he did not know what to do for me. However, when he met me he tested my muscles and was amazed at how much my body is working when it should have deteriorated and atrophied so bad to a point there’s just no way for recovery. My physical therapist told me I’m a very rare case and how my body is healing is impossible.
He was so stunned that it caused him to go back and research the virus and go back over what he learned in college regarding spinal cord injuries. The therapy that I am going through right now are the following: physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic therapy, cranial sacral therapy, water therapy, and Massage Therapy with the use of young living oil’s. With all this therapy that I am going through I can say they all have their part of my healing for example the massage therapy with Young living oils. I have been doing massage therapy since December 2016.
About a month ago my massage therapist Marty Sovis introduced me too A product called Goldenrod Salve. Goldenrod Salve is used for muscle spasms, cramps, aches, burns, and wounds. He put the goldenrod salve on areas where I suffer from muscle spasms the most such as the pelvic, legs, ankles, back, and arms. I noticed a difference the first time he put the salve on me. My muscle spasms have decreased everywhere. Also the hyper tone has decreased in my body which is a form of a spasm. The best way I could explain hyper tone would be when your big toe has a cramp in it and your toe is bent down and you can’t get it to go back up until it relaxes. Unfortunately, I suffered from hyper tone throughout whole entire body for years especially my legs, hips, back and pelvic.
Ever since I have use this product the spasms and the hyper tone decreased. My physical therapist even noticed that my spasms and Hyper tone Decreased. He is amazed with the changes in my body. With that being said now my muscles are able to work more on their own instead of having the spasms and hyper tone to help me do my therapy which comes and goes and only caused me to gain a little bit of strength in my muscles. Now what strength I gain from now on is going to stay. I am so happy that I tried this product I really do truly believe this has helped me along my journey to walk again. I will like to thank Anat Shlagman for creating this product. I really do appreciate your time and effort to create a natural healing product you have blessed me in so many ways and this means so much to me thank you again!
Sincerely, Christina Tilton
