What was it like before you came to see us?
I met Aaron at a workshop on Sugar Cravings (which I had a problem with). While I didn’t have a diagnosis of anything serious, I knew it was just a matter of time. I was very over-weight (morbidly obese), I had joint pain, especially in my knees and a lot of problems with my feet. I also had digestive issues, bloating, constipation, just feeling so badly all the time that I didn’t even realize it wasn’t “normal” not to feel that way. I was also exhausted ALL of the time- I would consume sugar (in my tea, or in the form of donuts, etc.) to get through the morning, more sugar to get through the afternoon (more tea, and a candy bar- or two). The symptoms were too vague to see a medical doctor and expect any response other than “lose weight”- which is easier said than done. It’s hard to commit to an exercise program when you feel bad, your knees and feet hurt, and you have absolutely NO energy.
