Jessica's Story

Jessica is 40 years old and has suffered from GI issues her entire life. It’s uncomfortable and embarrassing—bloating, gas, and chronic constipation. Plus, skin rashes, intense sugar cravings, and strange reactions to various foods complicate her everyday life. 

She tried SO many things to feel better: elimination diets, over-the-counter drugs, and of course she visited multiple gastroenterologists. Yet, none of this helped her feel better—it even made things worse! She was confused and increasingly frustrated because she didn’t understand why no one could figure out what was wrong and why her body was not responding to “all the good things she was doing,” as she explained to me.

When she found me, Jessica was curious but skeptical. She had been let down so many times before. But, she decided to give it a try—trusting me to guide her. 

Her symptoms first led me to order a functional lab test for dietary antigens so we would find out for certain what foods were causing allergy or sensitivity reactions. We discovered that there were literally dozens of foods (eggs, broccoli, and tomato just to name a few) that were causing her immune system to react and triggering inflammation. I knew that we had to calm her over-reactive immune system down if we wanted to see any improvements in how her body felt.

When Jessica saw the long list of foods, she was stunned, but also relieved to finally be getting some solid answers. These were foods she loved and ate often, but I was able to give her alternatives with simple recipes. She quickly started feeling better and enjoying the new foods!

That didn’t take care of everything, though. Some issues like the chronic constipation and eczema-like skin rashes persisted, so I ordered another comprehensive functional lab test for pathogens (e.g., bacteria, parasites, viruses, and yeast) as well as immune, inflammation, and digestive function.

Wow, were these test results helpful! They gave me a clear picture of exactly how distressed her immune function was, and how the “bad bugs” were overpowering the good ones. No wonder she had been feeling so compromised for so many years!! 

With the help of a few supplements to improve her digestion and boost her immune system, and antimicrobials to kill off the nasty bugs, she’s finding her way to a new normal with unbounded energy, zero bloating, and regular bowel movements.

Best of all, Jessica finally has the peace of mind that she’s giving her body what it needs to heal itself. She is finally stepping into the life that she imagined for herself all these years!

Can you relate to any of Jessica’s story? 

Or do you know someone that has been suffering as Jessica has for far too long and been told “we can’t find anything wrong”?

If so, you don’t have to suffer a single day more. I’m here to help. 

I invite you to schedule a complimentary 20-minute consultation with me.

We’ll get on the phone and talk about what you’re experiencing, and see if we’re a good fit. 

Don’t waste another day living in misery. Get help now and start living the energetic, pain-free life you’ve always dreamed of—just like Jessica!
