As a naturopathic physician who has practiced intermittent fasting (IF) for the bulk of my adult life, I am uniquely positioned to speak both scientifically and anecdotally to intermittent fasting's profound benefits.
I have had chronic neck pain for over twenty years which improved significantly as a result of Dr. Somody's treatment.
Similarly, my daughter has had lower back pain for many years, which had dramatic improvement as a result of Dr. Somody's treatment.
She had low back soreness often, especially at night or when she was resting.
That disappeared very quickly as a result of the first Bowen therapy session.
This shift seemed to stick, too - she hasn't needed any more treatment in almost a year, and now barely even mentions her back.
Her stomach pain - it seemed that she had a low-level of parasites that were really good at hiding from her immune system.
Something about the treatment - the mind-body connection, perhaps, or the homeopathics, Bowen [therapy] sessions, dietary counselling, or something else - all I know is that she doesn't even mention her stomach now, and hasn't since the first session.
It's more difficult to judge the effect of the treatment on her anaphylactic allergies, as we've been trying to avoid her biggest anaphylactic triggers.
However, whatever the reason, she hasn't any anaphylatic attacks in the year since she began Dr. Somody's treatment.
Her dyslexia's also dramatically improved to where it could be considered cured, or at least so small that it barely interferes with her life.
Dr. Somody has been both professional and respectful in his care of both my daughter and myself.
I have great regard for Dr. Somody, and for the health results he has achieved in attending to both myself and my daughter.
For about three years, I was suffering from unpleasant symptoms with my digestion which eventually triggered my social anxiety that was going to the extent of periodic panic attacks occurring in crowds, before going out of home or with no apparent or trivially discoverable reason.
At first, the remedy Andy gave me made some gradual, slow changes, but we weren't quite there, yet. Later on, Andy found some interesting homeopathic solutions that improved my quality of life big time.
Like with any sensible approach, I didn't become absolutely okay overnight (and I still have some issues) but it looks like my social anxiety came down to a much more tolerable level and I forgot when was the last time I experienced a panic attack like I did before. Suffice to say, I am not obsessed with my condition anymore — and that's a huge step forward.
Also, the probiotics and various herbal medicines Andy gave me to improve my digestion were working quite well, albeit at times those solutions were rather temporary.
I don't normally take any of these things regularly now and yet my stomach is doing much better than before.
