“…his speech was clearer, his ability to deal with customers was steady, fatigue was lessened, and everyone noticed the changes and remarked how wonderful it was to see these improvements.”
Our Downs Syndrome son is 37 years old and has been working at Albertson’s Grocers for 18 years. He has his own apartment and is provided independent living support by an outside program. We began to see deteriorating changes in his skill levels which according to the latest studies, was to be expected.
As with any young person with genetic problems, physical problems were also a source of concern. One of the worst for someone who is on his feet the entire time working was the constant recurrence of growths on the bottoms of both feet. While they could be removed by being cut out, it didn’t stop them from growing back within weeks. As described by the podiatrist, it was like walking on marbles.
I mention both of the above because The Life Vessel Advanced Wellness Center has brought about the following results, which have made our son’s life more enjoyable and more satisfying. In the case of the loss of skills, positive changes such as improved cognitive and communication skills were noticed slowly at first but perhaps were most apparent at work where his speech was clearer, his ability to deal with customers was steady, fatigue was lessened, and everyone noticed the changes and remarked how wonderful it was to see these improvements.
We will certainly continue with the Life Vessel to continue to promote these improvements and provide our son with the continued ability to live independently.
In addition to the Life Vessel, the laser used at the Life Vessel Advanced Wellness Center has been remarkable in that it not only removed the growths from the bottoms of his feet but they have not returned in any manner. We will continue the laser treatments as it has made walking and dancing, once again, enjoyable without the pain of “walking on marbles” and without the need to use an invasive technique to remove the growths over and over again.
We will continue to use and recommend the Life Vessel Advanced Wellness Center.
