Case Study – Day 1

Case Study with Paolo Dell Aquila – Day 1

Today, I started the CPMHA independent case study.

My goals:

  • To decrease the swelling in my brain and inflammation throughout my body and to reduce my chronic body pain and migraines,
  • Lose 100 pounds within the next nine months
  • I researched out of Europe and designed this program myself. This is all-natural and there should be no side effects. We want to point out that this is experimental and if anyone tries to follow it on their own, that they should consult their doctor and make sure they’re not allergic to any of the items or ingredients involved.


May 2015: – physically strong, Height: 5’10 ½ & Weight: 220 lbs. Started to notice small symptoms

As of today May 28, 2019

  • Weight: 327 lbs
    Ht 5ft 7.5(in)
    BMI 50.45 index
    BP 150/84(mm HG)
    HR 87(/min)
    Oxygen sat%97(%)
    Pain: 9 (1-10)

Migraines every day

My vision has been declining over the past month and a half. I had one episode where I went blind for approximately 3 minutes.
Memory is getting worse every day mostly short-term.
Last seizure was four months ago.
People can go to my symptoms page for more details: my coping strategies are changing as symptoms arise.


As of approximately two and a half months ago, I went cold turkey and stopped all pain medications/Opiates.

Currently, I am only taking:

Testosterone CYP injections 1.5 ML a week. I have been on the TRT for three months now. I am feeling a little better with more strength and endurance. A positive for sure! My original marker was 75 for my testosterone levels before I started my TRT.  I had an extremely low number for a man my age, 51. It’s probably due to all the concussions and pain meds over the years. My goal is to be in the range of 700 to 1,000 within the end-of-the-year. Based off of the latest research that is the right range for men my age to get maximum brain function and energy.

Xanax anywhere from one mg to 3 mg a day. I have been going through a very stressful and painful time. The Xanax is helping but my goal Is to come off it completely in September or October at the latest and switch to non-addictive anxiety medication.

I also take:

  • Cymbalta for pain and depression I take 60 mg of twice a day.
  • Zofran as needed for nausea.
  • Blood pressure medications
  • Clonidine 0.1 mg twice a day
  • Losartan 50mg 1 tab 2x daily
  • amlodipine,10mg once a day
  • Metoprolol 25mg 1 tab twice a day
  • Pantoprazole 40mg once a day

Organic medical marijuana 2 to 3 times a week (sometimes, side effects consist of the munchies and slight paranoia, but not always.

I prefer CBD.  All I need is one hit of a vape pen for pain unless I am nauseous and I am feeling the spins.

Lab technician said my blood was like glue meaning the hemoglobin is way too high. My doctor should’ve spotted it. I’m a prime candidate for a stroke or a heart attack. She recommended I get a prescription from the doctor, go to a blood bank and get a pint of blood taken out to thin the blood naturally. This is why we have to push hard with this awareness program.


Today’s doctors are not thorough (we will repeat the same blood panel/Work every 6 to 9 months to see if there are any positive or negative changes. I am fighting with the insurance company to see if we can get brain scans, but they will not approve of it. They will only do them for me one a year.
