Joanne, 29-year-old mom is AIH AND MED FREE! And her doctors in England can’t believe it! AUTOIMMUNE HEPATITIS IS WORLDWIDE! But my beautiful British friend & mom of an adorable boy was determined to live a HEALTHY AND LONG life for her son and her family! I’m so proud of her because she only met me via SKYPE and didn’t have ANY support in her native country…like so many others. Now she’s healthy, OFF THOSE DREADED MEDS and Happy, happy, happy! Please read her testimony…:
Well where do I start …. in January 2014 I had a beautiful baby boy and life was good. I had general stresses of life as a new first mummy but nothing major. October 2014 I went back to work 4 full days a week and was absolutely exhausted running a household a new teething baby and my very intense job was taking it’s toll and I had no time for me or my body. After Christmas 2014 I was getting more used to my new role as working mum but I still just didn’t feel right but too busy to go to the doctors so I just soldiered on
Then in March 2015 I was so so itchy I really couldn’t cope so I googled it. One of the questions was, are your eyes or skin yellow? I looked in the mirror and to my horror, they were!
My skin was actually really yellow how had I not noticed!

I got to the doctors office that week and he called the same day at 3pm and told me to get to the Emergency room immediately as my liver results were off the scale – 700 & 800 normally 40-60. That 40 minute drive to the hospital was quite possibly the worst 40 minutes of my life! not knowing what was wrong with me. From the urgency in the doctors voice I could only think the worst. I arrived and after 6 hr wait, they took more bloods asked all the usual questions regarding drinking alcohol etc they just couldn’t understand why my results were so high, they thought it was possibly a gallstone but further investigation was needed and I needed to stay in. Once again a scary thought as I’d not been to the doctors for over ten years other than having my baby.

After an horrendous & nerve racking two weeks in hospital and numerous tests, MRI’s & biopsies I was diagnosed with Auto Immune Hepatitis. AIH was something I’d never heard of and certainly didn’t want so whilst still in hospital I set about investigating it and finding a natural way to try and cure it. Whilst doing this I did exactly what the doctors told me to. I took steroids and an immune suppressant. But the thought of taking a pill to suppress the only thing that keeps you alive seemed ludicrous to me so I continued on my search. The Prednisone and Imuran horrendous. I felt awful.

I went straight back to work refusing to let this beat me but every lunch time and every evening when my baby was asleep I’d research and research I found lots about juices and so on which i started to include whilst still taking my meds after 12 weeks the combined steroid/suppressant worked and doctors weaned me off prednisone but continued taking AZA. After 4 weeks on only Imuran, my liver enzymes went back up and they put me back on prednisone! I was devastated. Then I found Denise’s book. That day life literally changed over night for the better.

I read the book within a few days and after learning she was based in New Jersey America I didn’t think there was much that could be done however I sent her an email.

I woke up the next day to a response that was September 2015. A response full of positivism and that she could help regardless of living on opposite sides of the world that it would be a long but fulling journey and she wasn’t wrong!

I started the diet & supplements immediately the diet was really hard at first as it was so so different from what I’d normally eat but within a full week of strictly sticking to it and taking my supplements there was an improvement! I couldn’t have been happier, it was the motivation I needed to continue. Not only did my results change, I changed I truly felt amazing I was eating nourishing foods my body needed rather empty food of no benefit by December 2015 I reduced my meds to the lowest dose of hospital medication and was still receiving the best blood results. Not only that, but I’d lost weight, looked and felt great! I had so much energy.

Mid January 2016 i stopped taking my hospital meds completely and continued with good result however march 2016 they started to climb again nothing like what they were but still just over normal spoke with Denise she got me back on track and increase my vitamins and supplements by the end of August 2016 I’d had a good few weeks of perfect results so I started to reduce my supplements back down to normal levels since then each week has just been an improvement with today’s results Jan 2017 being the best I’ve ever had 12 months since stopping my meds.

I’m absolutely over the moon and couldn’t recommend Denise and her method more. Not only am I now fit and healthy, but I know exactly what to feed my little boy & partner to nourish him and help him grow and live a long and happy life. The learning journey I have been on has been truly amazing and I’m so happy to be in control of my body. It’s taken a long time but I knew I’d always get there.

I’ve learned to chill out and not take things so seriously, make time for me, nourish myself and my family & live love and enjoy every moment I’ve been given. It could’ve been so different 12 months ago and I owe this all to Denise xxxx

All my SKYPE patients are determined and try their best to stick to the program. You only need guidance and a will to live! Joanne’s love for her family obviously gave her the motivation to heal. Congrats Joanne, you rock “little sister!”

Meet 29 yr old Christina Kohl She’s AIH FREE! First time in 2 years!!! She’s from Germany and she followed the CURING COURTNEY protocol with the help of an N.D. in South Bavaria. Yes, everyone told her she was crazy to not take meds (including the Liver Specialist)…but she found an Holistic doc & some friends who believe in alternative methods..and now she’s HEALTHY HAPPY AND OFF MEDS FOREVER!!! I’m sooo proud of her! Go Girl!!! Here’s her story …:
At 27-years old I’d just completed my BA in Business while working and finally landing my dream job.
I was professionally successful and building a social life with sports, friends and other activities. And I was in a solid relationship…everything seemed perfect.
Then in August 2014 during a routine check-up the doctor discovered my liver enzymes were AST80/ALT157.
I was then diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis because the SLA antibodies were present. Their only treatment was High doses of cortisone.
So I got a second opinion. I met with a liver specialist in Munich who quoted the “newest statistics” from the 1980’s! He informed me that according to these statistics, 70% of patients who didn’t use medication with a “hepatitis” were no longer alive after 10 years! He scared me to death! But that’s what the doctors do to justify their treatment methods. Because they don’t know better.
Then they gave me a very painful liver biopsy WITHOUT anesthesia. Even though the AIH wasn’t confirmed, the doctors still insisted on cortisone treatment.
I could not and would not accept a permanent treatment of cortisone and the side effects. So the investigation marathon began on the internet. Then in January 2015, I found the book CURING COURTNEY. The 1st and only literature I could find for autoimmune hepatitis and alternative treatments.
I contacted Denise via Facebook and within 20 minutes I received a reply. That was the turning point! I remember sitting there, crying and full of new hope. Her message was: Girl, you can do it. If I healed my daughter in a much more advanced stage of the disease, then you can do it too!

And our work together began….all over Facebook messenger. She recommended the diet and vitamins and to change and improve my lifestyle. Also the books Denise recommended changed my way of thinking about nutrition..”.WHEAT BELLY,” “THE ALPHA LIPOIC BREAKTHROUGH,” “THE AUTOIMMUNE SOLUTION.” I also had to find an alternative practitioner who would work with this protocol and take blood.
After 2 weeks of changing my diet to the Paleo diet and finding which foods were good and bad for me…my liver levels fell to AST 44/ALT 75…and leveled off more and more in the following months.
And of course, I fired the liver specialist who still insisted that I go on the cortisone treatment.
I prepared all the vitamins, with the help of Denise, as this protocol isn’t common in Germany and I had to virtually teach the holistic doctor. But she was very open minded because in Germany ALPHA LIPOIC is approved as a drug for diabetes.
In January 2016, I met a new man who I can really be ME with and who shares my passions and plans for life. And within 12 days of meeting this man, I decided to separate from my former partner. THEN ONE WEEK LATER….with my new relationship and new life…my liver levels were within normal range!!!!
Finally, I can’t say exactly what led to my great health. As Denise says, I think it’s always a combination of diet, lifestyle (happiness) and vitamins.
I’m very grateful that Denise came into my life at the right moment and that she pointed me in the right direction.
I’m also grateful that this disease tested my internal strength. My stubbornness and tenacity kept me strong against the fear machinery of conventional medicine. There were many times that I cried and was about to take the cortisone. Also, like many others…I had to stand up to my anxious family and friends who repeatedly advised me to “trust the conventional doctors. But the struggle was worth it.
LIFE IS WONDERFUL!
So my message is to others with AIH and other AI diseases:
Conventional medicine is not the only way. You have to find the right pieces of the puzzle and put them together. It’s your responsibility to take care of your own health. So keep questioning and and keep an open mind.
….don’t you just love this Bavarian Beauty! Smart, lovely , happy and healthy!
You Go Girl!!! Big American Hugs!!!

This is the story that will change lives..it will hopefully change the way you think about eating, vaccinating and taking lots of meds to reverse disease.
Meet my new love…This is 4-year-old HUDSON & he’s AIH FREE! At his worst, his liver levels were at 5000! Yes, many AI cases are caused by vaccines at birth, in utero, or as adults. But, with the science of an Autoimmune diet, vitamins & patience, Hudson is healthy and drug free! His mom, Kiely found me last year when his prognosis was dire.
Here’s Kiely’s story…

Every parent’s worst nightmare came true for us in December of 2014 when our two and a half year old son Hudson started complaining of belly pain he also had darker than normal urine. So we called the pediatrician’s office and gave them his symptoms and they didn’t seem too concerned until a few days later I noticed the whites of his eyes looked yellow to me so I rushed him to the doctor and they took a urine sample and did some blood work and told us that he had high levels of bilirubin in his urine and they would let us know what the blood work said. But 4 days later we got a call from the pediatrician telling us that Hudson’s liver enzymes were in the thousands and that he was going to be admitted to a hospital in Northern CA. Once we got there they ran dozens of tests & he had blood drawn every morning. All of the tests were coming back negative and they told us that he’d need a liver biopsy because he was in acute liver failure. He spent 6 days at this “Memorial hospital” but his liver enzymes sky-rocketed to the 5000 range and they were uncomfortable doing the biopsy. The then transferred him to a famous Children’s Hospital in Northern, CA. When we arrived and they took even more tests, then did a liver biopsy.

While Hudson was in recovery, two of the liver team doctors came in and told us that he would most likely be listed for a liver transplant the next day if things didn’t start getting better. Then they had my husband and I watch a video of how to care for someone that’s had an organ transplant. We also had a hematoligists come in and tell us his blood cells looked abnormal and asked if we had any history of leukemia in our family!

Talk about my absolute biggest fear! During the next twenty-four hours we prayed over him and had hundreds of of people all over praying for our baby. We literally lived our days in the hospital focused on AST, ALT, INR and ammonia levels… things most parents have never even heard of.
The next morning one of the liver transplant doctors came in and told the other doctors to try to give him some different medications. One of the drugs was prednisone. That’s when his liver enzymes to drop. And less than 24 hours after we were told he was going to be listed for a liver transplant and 6 stressful days of waiting…we were told he had AIH and we went home the next day. We were ecstatic. It was Dec 23rd and an absolute blessing and miracle!

We were sent home with a slew of medications, with him at 30mg of prednisone and a taper calendar to have him off prednisone by Feb. But as the steroid tapering got to 10 mg, his ast/alt numbers shot up to the thousands again. Hudson was having horrible side effects, angry outbursts,.. his sweet face got round and chubby and he was growing hair all over. After an appt with his GI Dr. In Feb we were told that since the steroids were no longer working, we would need to go to a stronger medication they use for chemo patients called Imuran.

Then in his next breath the Dr. said it’s been known to cause blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma and its a medication he would be on for life. I asked him if there are any other options. He said no. I took the information and said “my husband and I would discuss it.” I left the office in tears with Hudson in my arms and prayed to God the whole way home for a miracle for healing of my sweet baby. I got home and immediately started researching alternative treatment for AIH and that’s where I came across “Curing Courtney” I began feeling hopeful reading all of the testimonies of others people who Denise had helped. I went to Facebook and sent Denise a PM with Hudson’s story and to my surprise got a quick response from her. I bought her book and read it in a few hours. I immediately felt a sense of peace and hopefulness. My husband and I decided to hire Denise to be Hudson’s Holistic Health Counselor. She was so amazing answering my hundreds of questions and walking me through the protocol. We decided to hold off on the cancer causing drug and immediately started the new diet and cut out all wheat and dairy. Hudson’s next labs started trending down. Once we got all the vitamins we continued to see labs dropping. Our next appt with his GI Dr and a liver Dr. from the Best Hospital in Northern California, we asked if the new change in his diet and vitamins would help and they said no but it wouldn’t hurt so we decided to try it along with the prednisone. After what felt like forever …a year later our boy is off all steroids and his liver numbers are normal!!! Praise Jesus! We are beyond grateful for Denise and what she has done for our son there are no words to thank someone enough for saving your babies life. Denise you are a true angel on earth and an answer to our prayers and we will be forever thankful for you. Your love for others shines through all you do and I pray you will be greatly blessed.xoxo
You’re very welcome Kiely Allen . Not only am I in love with this adorable little boy, but I’m so impressed with his mother’s research and tenacity. Kiely is as intelligent as she is beautiful. We need to give a lot of credit to the mothers, fathers and adults who sift through the research, apply the principles and hang in there while the body takes it’s own time to heal. Even when the naysayers question our intelligence….and they continue to do so…we must persevere! A hat tip to Kiely and a salute to her Military husband, Jared. He’s taking care of our Country!
