I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome at age 9. I spent the next 17 years of my life battling this disease daily. I was in and out of the emergency room. I saw several specialists and tried several drugs including an immunosuppressant drug with no noticeable improvement. The acute stomach pain, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, headaches, fatigue, anxiety/ depression and joint pain had made me feel completely hopeless, With all options exhausted I was referred to Dr. Heath and decided to give holistic medicine a chance. We started a gluten free diet immediately while awaiting my food sensitivity test results. I felt undeniable improvements within weeks. I have now started my specialized diet and am feeling better than I ever have. I finally know what it means to love life.
After 14 years of pain, sometimes really bad, I now have my life back. After 5 months or something of treatments. I now can sleep through the night without pain. I can enjoy bubble baths once again .
“At the time of my first appointment I was wearing reading glasses most of the day, had high blood pressure, wasn’t sleeping well, at night often felt dizzy, had frequent headaches/migraines, almost constant upper back pain, and had been steadily gaining weight for over year.
After my first visit I realized I wasn’t reaching for my glasses in the morning and no longer needed them. I eliminated all dairy, gluten, and sugar from my diet for 90 days. In that time my blood pressure meds were reduced for 50 mg to 12 mg, I’ve lost 30 pounds, I am sleeping through the night, greatly reduced back pain, and only occasionally have a headache. before going on blood pressure medication a year and a half ago I was having headaches almost every day, frequent heart palpitations and was extremely dizzy. those symptoms has not returned as I’ve lowered my meds.”

“Ever since I was young I always remember having the fear of running to the bathroom due to stomach cramping and chronic diarrhea. I would go out to eat and them have to run to the bathroom. When I was in college I would have a drink and have to run to the bathroom. My last two years in college I would get bronchitis every season and have to be put on antibiotics that would cause me to have to run to the bathroom. I was frustrated and depressed!!! Who wants to constantly have the fear of needing a bathroom nearby every time they would eat or have a drink?!? I decided to try a gluten free diet own since my symptoms weren’t getting any better. After a year of being on a gluten free diet, my symptoms cleared up, but then eventually flared up again. I went to some physicians who just prescribed me medication that helped the symptoms but didn’t help the underlying issues. When I stopped taking the medication my symptoms would just come back. I realized I needed to get to the bottom of this. I decided to go the natural route and called Dr. Heath’s office. He had me go through a series of tests and my results came back with many food sensitivities and different types of bacteria in my colon from the medications!!! He put me on a personalized diet and supplements to help my digestive system. I have been on this program for about 5 months now and getting great results! No more stomach cramping! No more diarrhea!!! I must say it was hard at first but I am so happy with how my body is responding with the program he has put me on and will continue to follow this till my recovery.:) ”
