I Had Food Allergies For Years
For as long as I can remember I've had allergies. I started testing for allergies when I was still with my parents. Since then I have spent literally thousands of dollars on allergy testing. I've tried everything to figure out what was wrong with me.
You name it and I probably had it. Digestive issues, IBS, fatigue, bloating, etc. Pretty much everything kind of distress and the symptoms that you have listed on several of the pages on your website. The tests were horrible and some were very invasive and uncomfortable. I was always scared that I couldn't trust anything.
Going out to eat was a nightmare. I couldn't enjoy it and was taking a toll on my relationship with my boyfriend. I had blood and urine samples done, an endoscopy, and colonoscopies, but nothing came back positive. The doctors were stumped and didn't know what to do. They put me on several kinds of meds but none of them worked. Many of them had terrible side effects such as depression, high blood pressure, and rapid heart rate. Their form of medicine was not working, so I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I met another girl who was studying to be a nutritional consultant. It was then I started learning about food allergies. She took the little bit she had already learned and applied it to my situation. At the time, I seriously doubted that all of my problems were caused by food allergies like she said.
Needless to say, i was very skeptical, but I thought I've tried everything else for the last 20 years so I just gave it a shot to see what might happen.
She took me to a chiropractor and he did some allergy tests that were very non-invasive. He was very affordable and helped me through the process.
He also did a simple blood test that I was unfamiliar with, but I still went through with it. The form came in the mail. I pricked my finger and gave the small sample of blood and sent it back. Within a couple of weeks I got the results in the mail. It was certainly one of the easiest allergy tests I had ever done.
Once I received them, my chiropractor contacted me to discuss the results.
My chiropractor was the best. he was also a licensed allergist, very down to earth and easy to talk to. He went the results and gave me a full understanding of what's going on.
In short, I was allergic to all kinds of foods and environmental situations. I also had "leaky gut", of which I've never heard.
He gave me a specific protocol for my treatment and made simple dietary suggestions. He also told me of great supplements I could take and offered resources for support.
That simple blood test done by people who knew what they were doing, along with Dr. Ben's suggestions literally changed my life. After years and years of suffering and listening to the wrong people, I finally found someone who knew what they were talking about and had a good understanding of food allergies. I suffered through years of pain. It CHANGED MY LIFE!!
Since being treated by Dr. Ben I've lost nearly 25 lbs and was able to do those things that I had wanted to do for so very long.
I can attest to the fact that food allergies are real, not imaginary. Simple changes in your diet and life-style can make a world of difference. Get tested and get the results you need.
