    Age: 44
    Height: 5'8, Weight: 115

    Live in Estero, FL (SW Florida near Naples)

    Main Health concerns: Cognitive Issues, Chronic Fatigue, EMF sensitivity, Acid Reflux, Hiatal Hernia, Poor Circulation

    I have been struggling with a suppressed immune system and chronic infections, heavy metals, mold exposure (CIRS) and parasites for many years now. I have had a declining brain function which is very concerning as I am only 44 and a single mom of 2 boys. I have always known that I feel so much healthier at the beach, but never knew why until now. I have started sun gazing at sunrise, getting 1-2 hours of sun during the day without sunglasses, blue blocking glasses at night and while using devices, grounding and cold showers and swimming in my cold pool. I try to go to the beach as often as possible, but we have had a lot of red tide issues the last year. I have had EMF issues for several years, so I already have a low emf house with no wi-fi. i also choose to live in a community that is way out and backs to many miles of preserve. There is really bad cell reception where I live, which I like. But lots of new communities are being put in, so I am not sure how long that will last.

    Health History:

    I grew up in Hawaii and was at the beach and barefoot for my first 18 years, but I still had a ton of health issues. I had chronic ear infections starting at 2 years old, followed by antibiotics and chronic yeast infections. I was given fluoride pills every day starting at 1 year old thru age 15 years old. I had 4 teeth that came in without enamel which they now know was from too much fluoride. When I got my period at 13 years old, I got such horrible cramps that I was put on birth control pills and prescription pain killers that I stayed on for 15 years. I now believe the cramps were due to low progesterone levels.

    Growing up I had chronic respiratory infections and bronchitis. Every time I got a cold, it would get in my lungs and I would cough for 2 months or longer. I was always sick. In high school I started having a lot of back pain, which has continued until present. I have hundreds of trigger points, constantly tight muscles and lots of back and neck pain. I do not have fibromyalgia because the trigger points are not in the right places. I was told it is chronic myofascial pain.

    I have experienced chronic fatigue, exercise intolerance, heat intolerance and cold intolerance for many years. I also was told I might have sjorgen’s syndrome, but I tested negative for it. I have extremely dry eyes, mouth, skin, etc and chronic dehydration - show low ADH on tests. I have also been told I have raynaud’s from my poor circulation and that I probably have EDS because of multiple symptoms including hypermotility.

    I tend to have low blood pressure 90/60 and was experiencing major hypoxia while living in Colorado. My normal blood ox level was 90 and it would drop to 85 as soon as i started walking. I went to heart docs and lung docs and they could not find anything wrong, but told my i had tachycardia and bradycardia. Just a month ago I had an EEG and was told I have a right bundle branch block. My blood oxygen level is back to 99 now that I live in Florida again.

    I have had 2 pretty bad mold exposures in the last 10 years. I have been tested for Lyme disease which was inconclusive. I was tested for the dreaded genetic variants for mold / CIRS and I have one for mold and one multi susceptible. I had some disturbing lab results in regards to mold in 2016. My CD57 was 6 at one point and my TGFB1 was 24,000+. They came down a little when we tested 2 months later. I believe my CD57 is still pretty low, but I have not been retested lately.

    For about a year, I have experienced periods of really bad acid reflux (GERD) to the point to being up all night with my chest and throat burning. The worst was last August 2018 and it got so bad that I started Prilosec and have not been able to get off of it. I avoid pharmaceutical drugs at all costs, but the reflux was unbearable and my teeth were in extreme pain from it. I would like to get off of these ASAP. It is my top priority. I had an endoscopy and they said I have a hiatal hernia and my LES flap is not closing. I have no been able to eat meat since August or my acid reflux gets much worse. I read somewhere that Jack recommended putting ice packs on the stomach and laying in the sun to help with digestion issues. Is that recommended for me?

    My brain function has not been good the last few years. Both my short term and long term memory are horrible. i have trouble with word recall and sometimes recognizing faces. I constantly have brain fog and get migraines several times a month.

    My mother' mother had chronic digestive issues and ulcers. She ended up dying of colon cancer in her late 60's. My mother has diverticulitis and hypothyroidism but other than that is really healthy and active for 74. I have many more health issues that she does. My father developed osteoperosis in his 50's and I believe that I have been experiencing bone loss as well.

    I would love some feedback on getting rid of the acid reflux and getting my heart and brain working better.

    Welcome. You are very close to some very bad marine radar in Naples and Tampa area. This is why this area is a no go for my members.

    Jack, is there anywhere left to go in FLA? The Keys prior the Key West? Siesta Key and Boca Grande have always been sanctuaries, IMO. Sleep excellent, easily slip into mediation on beach, etc.

    What is "bad marine radar"? I have never heard of that. Are you talking about radar off of boats? I am inland quite a ways and there are no marinas anywhere near me so would I be affected?

    NOAA has them from Apalachicola to US waters distal to the keys up to Miami because of Cuba.

    There is also HAARP arrays all in TB. TB is the worse part of Fla I've tested.

    Oh, ok. So that would affect the area between Naples and Tampa?

    Jack - would putting ice packs on my belly while lying in the sun help heal my gut?

    Not at this location. I'm sorry to say that this area of Fla is nightmarish.
