THE STORY OF DENNIS PETOSA'S JOURNEY TO BRING HIS WIFE BACK FROM A

LIFE THREATENING ILLNESS.

THE STORY OF DENNIS PETOSA'S JOURNEY TO BRING HIS WIFE BACK FROM A

LIFE THREATENING ILLNESS.

My journey started in 1971, when I was first introduced to Martial Arts. I immediately knew I was on the right path. I quickly absorbed the teachings. My master/teacher had opened up a whole new world to me. We took many trips to Chinatown. He gave me many books to study on Chinese medicine, culture and philosophies. I immersed myself in these studies. However, even though I was expanding my knowledge and developing my skills, it just wasn’t enough.

In my efforts to learn more, I was introduced to “The Silva Method”, based on the teachings of Jose Silva. The Silva Method became a bridge to further expanding my knowledge. I continued to seek more information, which led me to attend many seminars on the various subjects of

the mind/body connection, health, metaphysics and spiritual growth.

In 1980 I opened a fitness center in New York. This continued my quest into health and wellness. During the 80’s, the fitness craze was really taking off and my business was flourishing! I felt incredibly blessed!

It was there that I met the love of my life!

TRAGEDY STRUCK 

OUR LIFE CAME TO A SCREECHING HALT! 

 

OUR LIFE CAME TO A SCREECHING HALT! 

 

During the spring of 1999 my wife, Carol, was rushed into surgery. At the time she was 45 years of age and in picture perfect health.
Prior to the surgery she wasn’t feeling well.

She had all the typical symptoms of a stomach flu or food poisoning.

A team of doctors kept asking if we had been out of the country recently. The answer was NO……

It turned out to be something way more serious.

It turned out to be something way more serious.

The diagnosis was a foreign bacterial infection that they couldn’t identify. The infection caused part of her intestines to rupture. After 2 bowel resection surgeries, she lapsed into a coma. Every organ failed except her heart. The doctors attributed it to all the cardio exercise she had done.

And while in a coma, her body was also fighting serious infections, which included Sepsis, MRSA and Acute Respiratory Disorder.

Anyone of these infections have the potential to kill a healthy person.

After three traumatic months in the I.C.U., she came out of the coma. Of course she had no idea that 3 months had gone by. When she was able to speak, she told me she had an astounding “Near Death Experience.” Ironically, after the NDE is when her vitals took a turn for the better.

The next step for her was making it to the rehab floor. Carol struggled with the simplest of tasks, even sitting in a chair was incredibly painful for her. It wasn’t easy, there were many setbacks. This went on for another 3 months in the hospital. The doctors then informed me that they wanted to transfer her to a nursing home, for more extensive therapy.

After 6 months, I knew my wife was LOSING HER MIND!

I felt a nursing home was not the answer.

That’s when I made the decision to get her home.

I made a vow to my wife,

I felt a nursing home was not the answer.

That’s when I made the decision to get her home.

I made a vow to my wife,


“I will find a way to bring you back.”


 


“I will find a way to bring you back.”


 

With a lot of effort and a great deal of determination, I was finally able to bring Carol home. She was a mere 88 lbs., very weak and confined to a wheelchair. She looked emaciated. I was starting to doubt if I took on a little too much, bringing her home just yet. She was on 13 different medications. And she wasn’t improving. However, I made a promise to her and I was determined to restore her health again.

I hired nurses, home health aides and physical therapists. It was during this time her blood pressure would dip really low and her heartbeat would race really fast.

Nothing was working.

Traditional medicine was failing her.

The doctors could no longer help her.

I was guided to a wonderful alternative/MD. He adjusted her medications and supplied intravenous nutritional support.
Because of my Martial Arts training I was able to find a Chinese master healer, who made herbal formulations and used Qi Gong therapy, which entails the use of Chinese massage and pressure on the body’s acupuncture points with the power of Qi.

Carol knew the road ahead was going to be grueling. She had to relearn everything, from the most basic of skills, in order to rebuild  herself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

In 2005 we moved to Orlando, Florida, where I managed a health and wellness center, which catered to alternative therapies and cutting edge nutritional support.
