What was it like before you came to see us?

Before I started coming to the WHNC I had been suffering from stomach problems for over a year. I was getting bloated every time I ate. I would sometimes get really gassy and soon I found that I couldn’t eat anything with dairy without severe stomach pains. I saw two different doctors and they both told me something different. One doctor said it was Celiac and the other said Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I went on a gluten free diet and tried gas medicines, but nothing helped. I was also diagnosed with acid reflux disease and was taking antacids 1-2 times a day to help keep the heartburn under control. I also suffered from fatigue and lack of energy. All I wanted to do was sleep. I was losing this battle with my body and needed help. Then a friend referred me to WHNC.

How is it now?

Now I feel great! I no longer suffer from heartburn and stopped taking antacids. My stomach problems are gone. I can eat pretty much anything (healthy) I want without getting bloated or having stomach pains. I have so much more energy and I’m not nearly as tired throughout the day like I was before. Through Nutrition Response Testing I found that I had a sugar handling problem and my pancreas was not working as it should. After cutting out sugar my pancreas went from a “0” to a “10” and my taste buds changed big time. I am now eating foods that I used to hate.
I haven’t felt this good in a long time. I have even lost the weight I’ve been trying to lose for the past year. I can’t believe how much my body has changed in the past 5 months. Now I’m in control and I’m ready to continue to live a happy and healthy lifestyle.
