Nutritional Counseling

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!

Recent Health Tips

  • Toxic Metals, Heart Disease, and Chelation Therapy

    In last week’s Health Tip I reviewed the well-researched health dangers of environmental toxic metals (also called heavy metals). They’ve always been a serious health risk, but with the Trump Administration’s recent rollbacks of clean air and water regulations we can expect even more trouble ahead. Statisticians predict an astonishing 160,000 unnecessary deaths over the next decade from the reversals of clean air and water Read More

  • Heavy Metal Toxicity and Your Health

    For those who were otherwise preoccupied that day long ago in high school chemistry, the heavy metals refer to a group of especially dense metals or metal-like substances (called metalloids) found in the environment. These metals–specifically lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and aluminum–can all be absorbed by your body and stored there. Our environment is already quite toxic (Trump’s EPA deregulations aren’t helping) and it’s getting Read More

  • The Chemical Swill In Your Body (And What To Do About It)

    Two Harvard social scientists writing in JAMA estimate that 80,000 people will die unnecessarily every decade because of the Trump administration’s repeal of clean air regulations, with another 80,000 deaths caused by the more recent repeal to clean water rules. If you ask a Trump supporter about this, you’ll likely get an answer like “More jobs.” Well, yes, perhaps, but waiting for someone to die Read More
