Ever since I was a baby I have had stomach problems, diagnosed as lactose and soy intolerant; finding formula was not easy or cheap for my parents. As I got older stomach pain was always an issue for me, I even got to the point where I no longer wanted to eat because it seemed everything I ate made my stomach upset, not just dairy. I was miserable and in constant pain. My co-worker suggested WholeHealth Chicago, specifically Marla Feingold as my co-worker’s father suffers from severe colitis and Marla has turned his life around. I was very excited and desperate at this point as I had been to a gastroenterologist who gave me a colonoscopy, endoscopy and celiac disease test that all came back as if I was in perfect health. I was told I have IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and have to understand that some days will be worse than others and to just live with it. I was also given some pills to take with every meal, they wore off shortly, and I knew taking medicine with every meal was not the answer. I was very frustrated and wanted answers I then saw Marla. Marla put me on a very restricted diet as she suspected I had severe food allergies. After being on a restricted diet for over a month and meeting with Marla, we were able to pin-point my food allergies, gluten, dairy, and soy. Although this has been a total lifestyle change I could not be happier. I feel healthy, lean and strong, for the first time in years! No more stomach pain, bloat, gas or diarrhea; truly life changing. I have learned to eat what makes my body feel good and avoid foods that I am allergic to. I am a healthier, happier person now and I have no one to thank other than Marla Feingold!
