The National Institutes of Health defines dyslexia as a developmental reading disorder or disability that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols. Noted artist Elizabeth Berg has struggled with a more severe form of this disability for nearly six decades. As far back as Elizabeth can remember she was dyslexic.
Her earliest recall was when others pointed her disability out to her. Letters actually moved on the printed page. Letters like “b” were seen as a “d.” Her mother provided her with building blocks with raised letters on them to help her imprint the proper configuration of letters into her mind.
This disability didn’t hinder Lisa, as she is fondly called. She became a child prodigy and entered art college at a major university while still a young teenager.
For Lisa, running is sometimes difficult because she had difficulty figuring out which foot to use for her next step. She loves to swim and run, but these activities have been a challenge for her. Competitive sports were be an insurmountable challenge. She played tennis against a wall or shot basketball hoops by herself.
Reading was difficult, having to scan a line of type with her eyes over and over and re-read a page for any comprehension at all. She didn’t read a textbook through till later in life.
But she took to art very early and won awards and scholarships. Her greatest success has come in book illustration, but her fine art is on display for resale of prints at www.
Over the years her dyslexia didn’t dissipate. When she drives a car she has difficulty finding places on a map.
So the world of dyslexics is different. Dyslexics like Lisa have no problem intelligence-wise. She says she relies on intuition. And it was her intuition that caused her to believe a dietary supplement she was hearing about on Coast-To-Coast night-time radio just might be a godsend. Even though she is on a limited income, she spent a wad of money to get those pills and put them to the test.
It was about five days later while climbing stairs that she realized something was different. Normally she gets four or five steps up the stairway and then has difficulty remembering which foot to take the next step with – her left or her right?
But this time she ran up the stairs to her bedroom and didn’t have to stop and regroup. After a few more successful trips up the stairs, she began to think something special was happening. She waited another five days before reporting her experience to the manufacturer of the pills.
Lisa says she now has much more rapid brain transmitter connectivity and she responds quicker to mental challenges and now has greater physical agility. Her energy level also improved and her anxiety levels “ceased to exist” she said.
A little over two months into taking this dietary supplement (Longevinex®) Lisa reports she can now read “at light speed, with her eyes and mind” in “perfect smooth coordination, no stopping, no stuttering or re-reading.” “This is really big for me,” says Elizabeth.
It all sounds so impossible. Whatever molecules are in that dietary supplement are, in Elizabeth’s mind, re-programming her brain, uncrossing the wires that have been that way since birth.
