Hi Friends and Family,

Wanted to tell you that these things are working over here. I am feeling so much better. Truly like a savior for my condition. I am really surprised how well my body is accepting these. I thought it might take longer to feel a difference. The part I didn't know about when I started this campaign, is that I get ten implants while I am here, but over the next year I am recommended to get around twenty more. There is many things I learned while here that I did not know about the gut microbiota, the growth of bacteria and what happens with probiotics and prebiotics when ingested. Even from researching hundreds of hours over the past five years on conditions and treatments, I am happy to say there is so much we do not know still and these studies will pave the way for us to learn more and more. Now that I have experienced these implants firsthand, I will say that the effectiveness of this treatment for my condition, and perhaps other conditions is profound and will have an impact on the future of healthcare for people who are suffering in all manner.

I also want to report that I think I need to tone down the volume of my smile on FB and Instagram, even though I can not help it, I am literally happy every day in spite of conditions, it a commitment to how I live. I seem to be having the time of my life. Well, in a way, I am, because these FMT's are changing my life, the possibilities for my future because my health is restored and informing my work with others’ health in the best way I can imagine. Over the weekend, I had off from the clinic and I felt crummy. Some symptoms returned, ever briefly and I felt really a lot of abdominal pain; not fun. So I am really really looking forward to receiving more implants, and continuing the treatments over the course of the next year. (I’ll explain more about this and why as this year progresses).

One of the things that will let me know if I have really healed and restored bacteria is the quality of my movement and my ability to dance. Dance is something that is truly me, that I love so much and when I return to dancing again, I will start first slowly and gently, checking out my energy and ability.

I have learned so much from Glenn Taylor, the clinic director and all the heroes of Taymount. The staff is compassionate and wonderful, a distinct difference form other clinics that are performing these transplants, I am told. I feel completely at ease every day as I am welcomed into the health clinic. I was able to have an exclusive chat with the folks who started the clinic where I asked a lot of in depth questions as to how they have evolved the clinic and these treatments over the past five years. I am working on putting together a piece to share in a little while. Right now, my focus is on staying at ease with my return home.

On another note, we have met so many people coming over from the States. There has been some magical moments with the kindest most sincere amazing people here, with lots of connections happening and relationships building.  The USA by far has the most people coming over here to for these transplants, and spending a lot of money. As the many (47) trials complete in the USA, I am sensing that these procedures will become widely available over the next 3-5 years in the States, at least that is my great hope. As one friend just texted me and said, “Amazing how one has to leave the US to get better healthcare.” My dedication to alleviate others suffering by providing education and leading edge innovations in healthcare through my work will change this. At least this is my great hope.

Sending all my appreciation and love to you. Kerri

Hi Friends and Family,

Wanted to tell you that these things are working over here. I am feeling so much better. Truly like a savior for my condition. I am really surprised how well my body is accepting these. I thought it might take longer. The part I didn't know about is that I get ten implants while I am here, but over the next year I am recommended to get twenty more, and in a pretty accurate and systematic schedule. I am supposed to take them home and get them across the border. We will see how I do with that. Several of the Americans who have purchased Top-Up’s as they are called here have gotten them confiscated at the border by the FDA. They are frozen so if they are held up for any length of time they are basically no good anymore as we are dealing with live bacteria specimens. So, wish me luck, my friends!

I am now halfway through the treatments and I am feeling some changes already. Particularly in my Blood Pressure readings and pulse. I am astounded at how much these have improved over the past week. I am normally at 94/47 or around there for my BP and now I am getting around 114/58, and my pulse has increased from 52 bpm to 60 bpm. I am really excited about this because normally I use exercise to get my blood and metabolism, and mitochondria firing properly, and now my ability to circulate my blood is really increasing. Yay! I can feel it working and I am warmer too!

This is all very positive news and this coming week will give me more precise information on where this is all going and how I can continue the progress when I return to the States. So far, I have met really lovely people and the clinic director and I will have a sit down next week where I ask him a series of questions about how and why and what of FMT’s -that I am looking forward to!

Thank you all and be very Well.

With Love,
Kerri

A few of you have asked me to update and here is a bit of what’s going on. There were too many things that had to fall into place for this to happen this month and it is miraculous how many conditions are just right for this to take effect in my system right now. Things are unfolding with perfect timing from a cab driver who lives near our clinic and decided to take us straight there and turn off the meter without us having to board a train to get from London to Letchworth where the clinic is located.

I did my first treatment today. My low back pain feels almost gone. I know I don’t complain about the pain I feel with several spinal herniations, but I have intense low back pain almost every day and get a lot of massages and chiropractic to ease the pain. I practice Gyrotonic and Pilates, as well my own workouts I’ve designed over the years that are effective for spinal herniations, and treatments such as cryotherapy reduce chronic inflammation. The relationship between the lumbar vertebrae and the nerves that innervate the intestines are correlated so having this treatment directly affected my low back health. So I am feeling good at the moment. The clinic is spotless clean and everything brand new, so I feel really comfortable about the quality of the the clinic and their standards. Glenn Taylor and his staff have taken extra care and mind to detail when designing their new clinic facility. I will post updates as my energy allows and I have taken video and photos to share with you along this ride.
Ready to receive my treatment today

So much cool stuff has happened since just 12 days ago, I shared with my family, friends, colleagues and clients about what is happening with my health and it was so helpful to do this publicly. The love that came pouring out in the form of donations, emails, texts, and phone calls is beautiful. I thank all of you, for being a part of my life. Thank you for your kind words, thoughts and expressions of kindness and generosity.

Please know that I am so well emotionally as I am in immense gratitude and appreciation for all that is coming. I have been dealing with this very serious disease for almost five years now, and I am throughly educated on the components of this disease and what I am looking at for the future. The opportunity I have in front of me is a world of difference from the 12 days in the hospital, looking for a solution in 2015.

I will continue on my quest to assist others in their optimum health and well-being as I realize my own. I am firmly focused on positive outcomes that have yet to pass, and as I have challenging days and good days when I make strides, I believe that my body will catch up with my thoughts of happiness and joy. This is the best we can do. Thinking and believing in what yet we do not know to be true, is the key to not living in misery, in miserable situations.

The ability to receive these treatments now is such a liberation for me. I am now able to get the most advanced breakthrough I have seen in the treatment of this disease, thanks to you. Now that this is common knowledge that I am undergoing these procedures, I am happy to share with you the ups and downs of it over the next months. Please email me if you’d like more information for you or your family about any health knowledge that I have and can share with you.

Mostly this is just a letter of gratitude to connect with you all as you have been with me on this journey to raise this money.

Most of all, I want all of you to know that you will be seeing me get well. You will see me open a health clinic one day with world-class treatments for ailments of all kinds. I have been writing, creating and taking action on this vision for years now and with my committed heart I am eager to set it up.

We will provide many possibilities for others to learn, to be educated and to be thankful too for the great healthcare they receive at my clinic, when it is most needed.

This time we live in is so great. With medical breakthroughs like this happening all the time.

Please keep your thoughts well, and may you and your families be forever blessed. Your love is noticed.


With Love,
Kerri
