Nutritional/Metabolic Testimonial

Doctor: Michael A. Winters, DC (Paducah, KY)

I would be legally blind today without the help of Dr. Winters and Debbie. I am very thankful I worked the front desk for them when I was diagnosed with a very rare auto-immune disease called Acute Multifocal Placcoid Pigment Epitheliopathy or A.M.P.P.E. In short, my body was attacking my retinas causing almost immediate blindness in first one eye and then both. I first tried the medical route and was told there was nothing they could do but give me steroids only because in theory they should help and to let it run its course. Obviously I was not satisfied leaving my vision to such weak odds. I was only 26 years old and couldn’t face the possibility that I might be blind for the rest of my life.

Dr. Winters and Debbie spent countless hours helping me through chiropractic adjustments, cold laser therapy, nutritional testing, supplementation, and unwavering support. During one of my visits to the eye specialist he remarked how quickly I was healing and how surprised he was that my eyes looked as good as they did. I know without a doubt the care I received at Winters Wellness Center was the cause of that remarkable progress. In the course of my treatment Dr. Winters determined that food allergies to gluten, wheat, and eggs played a major role in the cause of my autoimmune disease. The medical field was never interested in the cause. I wanted to know why so I could prevent it from happening again.

I am still working with Dr. Winters and Debbie to restore my health because this journey is not yet finished. However, I am now driving, reading, working, and functioning as an independent person. It took lots of trust, patience, and faith on my part. My life has changed its course but I am now on a path I can live happily with thanks to Dr. Winters.
