I started coming to the Natural Medicine Clinic because I was having muscle pains all over. I was super weak. I was basically laying on the couch all day. I could barely go to work, I could barely stand for even 5 minutes per day and medical doctors were not sure what was wrong with me. They wanted to put me on pain meds; very addictive ones. They thought it was a lost cause. I was also having a lot of sensitivities to a lot of foods and I couldn’t figure out why i was itching or my throat was closing up. Anything that could go wrong, was… even my digestive system.
So when I came in, we did some testing and blood work and we actually found out, here at the Natural Medicine Clinic, that I had Celiac Disease. So, once I got on a gluten free diet, I started noticing a tremendous difference. Dr. Tom put me on supplements to help build up my vitamin levels as I had a lot of vitamin deficiencies. After only a couple of months, not only did I lose a lot of weight that I had gained from eating unhealthy and being so incredibly sick, I had also started noticing my symptoms going away. Fewer headaches, my muscle aches were minimizing, I wasn’t having as much of that ‘foggy mind’; I could clearly think. It’s incredible how quickly things turned around for me. After four months, I hardly had any of those symptoms anymore.
The only thing that I am working on now is healing my gut and my adrenal levels. I am back to having good energy, I’m not in pain, and at the end of the day, all I have to do is a little more healing to do so that my body will again accept some of the foods. It has made a tremendous difference. Its has changed my life. It has changed my view on food and how we take care of ourselves both medically and how we handle things naturally. The chiropractic work and everything they gave me has helped in every facet. It has been tremendous.
