Dr. Pompa is a walking testimony of the body’s amazing aptitude for healing itself. Following the debilitating effects of a three-year battle against chronic fatigue syndrome, his deteriorating health manifested in anxiety, insomnia, brain fog, panic attacks, nervousness, auditory and chemical sensitivities, mood swings, irritability, irrational anger, severe gastro-intestinal disturbances, blisters, dizziness, unusual sounds in the ear, and twitching facial muscles. Death seemed a better alternative, but God had other plans. The doctor’s illness, and his eventual command over it, led him to a deeper faith in God and made him a better husband, a better father, and a better doctor. Truly, God does “work all things for good for those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). In the doctor’s own words: “Just like the patients God sends me, I know what it’s like to suffer.”
Dr. Daniel Pompa, D.PSc.
