"I have been struggling with "dysbiosis" to one degree or another, for nearly 20 years. The worst symptom is "brain fog" which makes it very difficult to stay focused and motivated to continue the regimen.
I am 72 years old. I take no drugs and I feel better today than I did when I was 50. All that is due to figuring out my optimum diet and taking the correct supplements. Your palate will adjust to the healthier diet in less time than you think. The body needs the building blocks of optimum nutrition to rebuild itself fully every day. Those building blocks are just not available from the Standard American Diet.
The treatment is working just as I had hoped. No more Brain Fog. More energy and more optimism every day. Thank you Dr. DeForest for your wonderful help."
"Before Dr. Melissa, I wasn't feeling well and hadn't for a long time. I had very poor digestion. My gut had begun to grumble loudly to an embarrassing amount on a regular basis. I found myself eating enormous amounts of sugary foods in an out-of-control way. I had ongoing low grade yeast infections, my eczema was stubbornly flaring up even with liberal topical steroid use every night, and I never felt rested, no matter how many days off or hours of sleep I had. I would wake up stiff and feeling hung over, when I hadn't had a drop to drink. I would get migraines at least once a month and I was anxious and/or depressed a lot of the time.
I like the idea of using more natural medicines and focusing on supporting the body systems which are already powerful means of detoxification and healing. The eating changes were a little rough at times emotionally, with missing my favorite foods and donuts and other treats often encouraged at work, but I stuck with it. Once I quit sugar entirely I no longer had the intense cravings for it and it was easier over time to pass on the donuts.
It's been over 6 months now and I feel a big improvement. I have lost over 30 pounds, I have more energy and my eczema is almost entirely gone...and no more steroids! I haven't had a migraine in months and my internal mental state overall is much calmer and more optimistic. People tell me how much more healthy, vital and alive I look. My skin is clear and bright. My digestion is still sensitive but it's not out of control anymore. I would say I'm at least 80% better. I know, in time, all my body systems will be working at their best, my digestive tract will be fully healed and I will be confident about what foods are good for me as an individual. With guidance and knowledge from Dr. Melissa, I have made enormous headway towards overall wellness and I am very grateful to her."
" I was suffering from severe arthritis in my hip. There was constant pain every time I took a step, which caused me to walk with a limp. Dr. DeForest's articles led me to try some herbal remedies and dietary changes, along with physical therapy.
Four months later, my hip feels fantastic! I can walk without any pain. I'm even planning on playing tennis again this summer! "
"For 8 years I had been suffering from Ulcerative Colitis. It would come and go but when it was present it was pretty bad. My gastroenterologist could only recommend anti-diarrhea medication but that stopped working after a while. I was losing hope.
I found Dr. DeForest's website through a friend and the information was exactly what I needed. It has been about a year now, and I am mostly back to normal. If I eat food that I know I should not, I can feel a little worse, but I get better by the next day. Spicy food is the worst. I am so thankful for finding Dr. DeForest. She has taught me so much about my body, how to best take care of it, how to recognize a high-quality supplement, and how to listen to what my body needs. She has given me more information, hope, and healing than anyone else has."
" Today thanks to her sensitive and knowledgeable ways, I feel a remarkable improvement and lightness where there used to be pain and heaviness."
