I’m 47 and it’s twenty years that I’ve been suffering from recurring asthma and occasional heartburn that I’ve always thought could be in some way related. Unfortunately, at the end of 2014 my gastric problems became chronic and worsened my asthma symptoms. Given my good general health conditions, I thought I could always be free to exceed my usual diet and hygienic habits without worrying too much. But when I started to suffer from heartburn and stomach acidity I also started to suffer from enteric disturbances together with unusual problems at my upper and lower respiratory tract (strong whooping, apparently asthmatic, nocturnal cough, recurring inflammation of the external ear canal, of the pharynx with an apparent allergic rhinitis). In a short time, this provoked me an unbalanced psychophysical state, exacerbated by anxiety and psychological dejection.
After going to the doctor who wrote me a prescription for the usual drug therapy (bronchodilators, anti-inflammatories, and anti-histamines and/or antibiotics for the respiratory tract; anti-acids and PPIs for the gastro intestinal disturbances) all I could get was just a minor improvement of the symptoms, and that’s why I decided to address to the Global Postural Reeducation in order to try to solve either my gastric and my respiratory problems.
Even though I didn’t undergo all the analysis due for the gastro intestinal tract but only those of the respiratory tract (that confirmed the allergic nature of my recurring asthma and of the occasional rhinitis), thus having just a general diagnosis from my doctor, I decided to follow the so called alternative treatments. (It is necessary to remind that my symptoms could be linked to a suspected GERD, suspected Helycobtter Pilori virus, and a suspected presence of a hiatal hernia, and that all the usual medicines I had taken had not produced significant improvements).
Among the alternative therapies, I thought that the physiotherapy of doctor Trabucco, the so called Trabucco method, could be the most effective to solve my chronic gastrointestinal problems connected to those of the respiratory tract.
My determination and my strong will to recover, together with the skill and professionalism of doctor Immacolata, whose strong empathy and sense of kindness in understanding the problems of the patients are unique, have been fundamental and essential to obtain positive results soon after the initial sessions. From that moment, a quick improvement has been total and it’s still goin’ on.
I want to make clear that this decision allowed me to understand how wrong my dietary and healthy habits were. Thanks to doctor Trabucco I was able to correct them in a short time and make sure that the exercises I did were not in vain but, on the contrary, could help me get the necessary awareness (together with the total relief) of a now balanced state of mind and body that I had for a long time forgotten. In the end, Trabucco method allowed me to understand that each one of us has his own personal way to stay in good health. We need to take care of our own wellness according to our own rules, and become aware of what is dangerous for our own psycho physical balance, trying at the same time to prevent illnesses in our very personal and unique way.
