What were your primary health concerns before you became a patient at Longevity?  What led you to incorporate supporting therapies in your health journey?  

I had a lump in my right breast that was discovered 10 years ago during a mammogram.  When I had a needle biopsy and had it drained, it came back as non-cancerous, but I was told I needed to watch it. Over the years I had become increasingly discontent with traditional medicine and was embracing integrative healthcare. I began using thermography to monitor breast health instead of mammogram. My right breast always came back with a high score. After a few years my doctor thought I should explore another mammogram due to my constant high scores. I reluctantly did so, and the hospital where I had the mammogram was concerned with the results and had me come back for a diagnostic mammogram. The radiologist wanted to watch it and wanted another diagnostic in 6 months. I knew in my spirit that this was not for me and chose not to go back.

Instead, I continued good breast care with oils, supplements, massage and followed a good diet, but my thermographies continued to show red flags in my right breast.  The lump showed up again in a mobile ultrasound, but once again I was told just to watch it.  Last spring I went through a traumatic event, and following this my health check up did not go well. Not only did I feel terrible, but my cell vitality was very low. Shortly after this, I began having pain in my right breast and a little discharge. I knew at that point that I was ready to completely embrace the holistic lifestyle and decided to go to my sister’s doctor, Dr. Seneca Anderson.

I choose to go through Dr. Anderson’s testing before telling him my health concerns. Low and behold, his tests revealed low cell vitality and problems in my right breast! In addition to following a homeopathic detoxification and supplement protocol, Dr. Anderson recommended 8 sessions of Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy to speed up my healing process.

What were your first few sessions like? What was your initial response to the therapies?

My first few sessions were wonderful. Not only did I find a peace every time I walked in the door of Longevity, I also felt the compassion of the staff. Nancy was the staff member who gave me my treatments. She is warm and caring and her loving demeanor helped me to feel safe. The treatments were performed laying down on a heated biomat, which was absolutely wonderful. It helped me relax and even nap for part of my time there. I could feel my body and spirit responding and becoming more vibrant. The treatments are painless and actually very stimulating, much like getting a massage. I looked forward to coming each week and began to feel stronger each time.

Describe your overall health picture today. What improvements have you experienced?

After the first 4 treatments, it was time for my 2nd mobile ultrasound. Fortunately, the same technician was assigned to me. She told me while she was performing the ultrasound that the lump appeared to be dying and fizzling away and she felt good about it. The report came back as clear. Upon completion of my 8th treatment, I decided to go back to my old thermography center for a follow up. I was absolutely thrilled when the report came back perfect. The technician wrote on the report that the score was perfect for the first time ever with a smiley face and congratulated me. She told me to keep doing whatever I was doing. My next check up with Dr. Anderson also indicated that there was no more stress and stagnation in the right breast. I continue my breast oils and my massage, and I have not had any symptoms at all.  I am relieved that, for the first time in 10 years, I can move forward without fear.

The new and improved Melody!

What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?

I love Longevity and the staff. As I mentioned, I had just experienced a traumatic event in my life and my health and emotional state were greatly affected. Each and every person I dealt with at Longevity were loving and genuinely caring. Dr. Anderson was so calming, and I was able to tell him what had happened to me. He was compassionate and always asked how I was recovering from this each time I saw him. Dr. Anderson’s wife Kay is a jewel and always worked with me to get what I needed. Nancy became somewhat of a soul sister for me, and every other person I worked with was marvelous. Without them knowing it, they were each a part of helping me rebuild my life, and I am so grateful. There is a peace in their office like I have not found anywhere else from the moment I walked in the door. I feel safe with them. I have referred several people to Longevity and will continue as a patient and friend there always. I have the utmost confidence in them. They improved my health when no one else seemed to be able to do so. Thank you Longevity!

Dear Prospective Patients,

I wanted to write about my experience with Dr. Anderson and the entire Longevity Health Center team.

When I first saw Dr. Anderson in 2004, I had been ill with Lyme Disease for three years (Diagnosed in 2001).  I had received intensive IV treatment from Lyme-literate doctors in three states.  I felt that the MD’s had saved my life, but I still had little vitality and was very sick.  I have always been open to alternative therapies, and I had used many of them.  But it took three years for me to make the leap to entrusting the core of my treatment to Dr. Anderson.

After only ten minutes of testing, Dr. Anderson told me that that I had two parasites. One of them was toxoplasmosis, which he said could be cured with an herbal remedy in one month.  I was flabbergasted.  I had been to several MD’s, including a gastroenterologist, for debilitating diarrhea over the course of a year.  I had several invasive tests, as well as tests for parasites.  The MD’s found nothing.  After taking Dr. Anderson’s herb for one month, my diarrhea was gone!  If I had any doubt that this man could help me, that doubt now disappeared.

The Lyme treatment was much tougher.  It took well over a year with Dr. Anderson for me to regain some strength and vitality.  But I got to the point where I could work part-time, which was a huge improvement.  I continued to see Dr. Anderson regularly for five years.

I had a serious relapse in March of 2015.  I had experienced significant emotional and physical challenges, including travel and caring for my 91-year-old mother living in Michigan.  When I returned to Atlanta, I was in bad shape.  I was very weak and had trouble thinking.  I had no appetite, and my digestion was terrible.  Trying to stand felt like I was hoisting an elephant.  After six weeks without improvement, I called Dr. Anderson’s office.  He was unavailable for several months, but Cristina was available in two days.  I made the appointment with her in late April.

Cristina was extremely helpful.  She found that I had six different tick-borne infections, including Borrelia, Babesia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.  She told me it would probably take six months to feel well.  I didn’t find the treatment easy, but I followed it diligently.  I took certain supplements away from food and stopped consuming almost all gluten, soy, and dairy.  When I had questions and concerns, I phoned the office.  I always got a call back promptly.  Nicole, Cristina, and Melina patiently listened to me and gave me informed, caring answers.  I can’t emphasize enough how much it meant to me to know that these wonderful people were available to talk to me during this frightening time.

I did not notice any improvement for a long time.  The months passed slowly, and I had terrible depression.  When I saw Dr. Anderson in September, I still felt miserable.  He modified the treatment for my specific type of Babesia.  He found that I was not absorbing B-12 or folic acid properly, and he prescribed a cream to help with the methylation process.  He also gave me additional adrenal support.  He predicted that I would have better energy and thinking ability in about two weeks.  It actually took five weeks, but then everything suddenly got better!  At first, I had two days in a week where I could stand easily.  The next week I could stand easily for four days.  The following week I had five good days, and the next week I felt good every single day!  My energy and appetite were back, and the depression vanished.  Cristina’s prediction had been correct.  It had taken almost exactly six months for me to regain my health. 

I am absolutely elated!  It is now seven months since I returned to Longevity for treatment for Spirochetes.  I have felt well every single day for a solid month.  Although I still have some limitations from the tick bite, I now have energy and can be up and around most of the day.  I can think, carry on a conversation, shop, cook, and teach dyslexic children to read.  I really feel like I have come back from the dead. 

My mood is excellent, and I have my sense of humor back.  My 26-year-old daughter said one of the big differences she notices is that I can be silly again.  (When you are just trying to survive, there is no energy to be silly.)

There are not words to express the gratitude I feel toward Dr. Anderson and the entire team at Longevity.   This is a very knowledgeable, caring group of people who are dedicated to helping suffering people feel well again.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Patient Testimonial: A Journey to Motherhood

Stories like these are why we all show up to work at Longevity Health Center each day.  If you have a testimonial to share, we’d love to use it as an encouragement for current and prospective patients! 

I have always considered myself healthy. As a college gymnast, I ate right, did more than my
share of exercise, and generally took care of myself. When I graduated from college, I continued a life of exercise and general well being. I ran 2 marathons and 6 half marathons and honestly, I felt like I was in better health that when I was at the peak of my gymnastics career. So, when it came time to start thinking about starting a family, I figured “I’ll get off birth control, and I’ll get pregnant.”

I first started to get worried when, after discontinuing birth control, I would go months without having a menstrual cycle. The athlete in me figured I was just exercising too much, but deep down, I knew this was not just a case of over-exercise. I started seeing specialists…my gynecologist diagnosed me with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, an endocrinologist tested me for several disorders like Cushings Syndrome and Adrenal Hyperplasia all with inconclusive results. Every doctor I saw wanted to put me on some kind of drug to “force” my body to do something it didn’t seem capable of doing on its own. No one could tell me why this was happening. That’s when I decided to visit Longevity Health Center.

At my first appointment, Dr. Anderson immediately saw some imbalances in my body. I sat down with JoAnna who took me step-by-step through my treatment plan. After my first detox, I had a 35 day cycle. I then started a series of herbal treatments and started seeing Alice for acupuncture. Immediately I began seeing results…normal cycles, ovulation each month, sleeping better, feeling better, etc. Doc and Alice were able to tell me why, something no medical doctor was ever able to do.

As I write this testimonial, my 11 week old son is asleep in his crib. After more than a year of trying to conceive unsuccessfully, I became pregnant last summer. My husband and I are so thankful for Doc, Alice, JoAnna, and the entire Longevity staff for helping us through this journey and helping make parenthood possible for us.
