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 had excruciating joint pain in my hips, knees, back, and other joints which not only affected me during the day, but interrupted my sleep at night.
Since Dr. Andy’s treatment, these pains and the insomnia have gone away completely.
Physically, I wasn’t sick in the sense of major disease or sickness. But if I was to keep going the way I was. I would have been for sure soon!
Being troubled with stomach issues for sometime, and having emotion issues I wasn’t even aware of.
Before I met Dr. Andy Somody, my journey first started at a walk in clinic, where I was put through some blood and stool test after a quick intake.
My test came back and I was told I have a parasite. I was put on antibiotics and it completely wiped me out. It wasn’t a pleasant experiences at all!
After all that, I still had painfully stomach issues. I guess it wasn’t the parasite. That upset me a lot to think I poisoned my body for no reason with drugs. I was then told that I had IBS.
After doing some research about IBS I thought it was time to get a second opinion. Why do western doctors just treat the “what” and not want to figure out the “why” so it wont happen again? The reason I went to the walk in clinic in the first place was because my family doctor was a drug pusher who really didn’t listen to me and made me stupid for not wanting to put drugs into my system.
I chose then to see Dr. Andy Somody.
I called him up made an appointment for the next Saturday.
I was very pleased that I didn’t need to take anymore time off work and that he was available on Saturday.
My first appointment reassured me that this was the right choice for me.
Andy listened to everything I said.
He asked me question, that I never I been asked before.
He provoked thoughts in me that I never even new existed in me.
My cure was a simple but profound one.
I was stressed out from work and I was going down the wrong path in life. The balance in my life was way off.
I am pleased to say that the pieces of my life are coming together and I’ve never been happier!
(which I never thought could happen, because I thought I was already happy.)
The pieces were always there in front of me - I just didn’t know what to do with them.
I owe Andy for helping me figuring it out, by opening my mind and spirit.
By listening and showing me love and compassion.
Andy has a true calling for naturopathic medicine.
Which has inspired me do what I love.
I am free of all pains and have learnt the ability to listen to my body for what needs it has at the time.
