eFundYourHealth Founders

My son, Dane, was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. We tried every form of conventional medicine imaginable. His doctors recommended removing his colon. This would mean he would lose the fight and be a slave to his disease for the rest of his life.

In desperation, we turned to Complementary and Integrative Medicine. He drastically changed his eating habits, lifestyle and learned to manage his stress levels. Today, Dane thrives in remission.

We started eFundYourHealth to provide a community willing to help others thrive where healthcare and health insurance was not enough.

With Love,

Phyllis Johnson, Founder

You can make a HUGE difference in the life of another person.

Donating to a General Fund allows you to channel your generous philanthropy to help other patients like Dane who are fighting chronic disease.

At its worst, Dane had 25-30 bowel movements in a 24 hour period, Chronic sleep apnea, drug induced Hepatitis, brain fog, extreme abdominal pain, extreme rectal inflammation and bleeding, blackouts, etc. After years of throwing away money on dangerous drugs and miracle supplements without any improvement, drastic diet, lifestyle, and stress changes made all the difference.

ROBIN BERNHOFT,
MD, FACS, DABEM, FAAEM

Board Member

Owner & Medical Director of the Bernhoft Center for Advanced Medicine

After working for several years in a busy surgical practice, Dr. Bernhoft became ill. His life was threatened by an illness which left conventional MDs at a loss for diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Bernhoft's search for underlying causes of his debilitating illness (he had severe respiratory and GI symptoms, numerous allergies, sensitivities to perfumes, car exhaust and other common odors and lost 35 pounds in four months) lead him to study environmental medicine.

His personal quest for survival carried him into cutting edge advanced medicine, including gene-environment interactions. He found out that his gene which codes for an enzyme called MTHFR was hypoactive, and a second which produces GSTM1 was absent, leaving him susceptible to poisoning by a wide range of metals and chemicals. Since the Genome Project has identified abnormalities of this sort, biochemists have found ways to improve performance of substandard enzymes like MTHFR and increase the amount of enzymes backing up GSTM1, allowing improved function. With this new information, he was able to begin clearing the metals, chemicals and surgical disinfectants which had poisoned him, and regain his health.
