Functional Medicine Helped Reverse My Diabetes Symptoms
July 7th, 2020
Thanks to Dr. Amy Myers and Functional Medicine, I have reversed my diabetes symptoms and taken back control of my health!
Our journey to optimal health started when my husband and I began eliminating gluten from our diet a year ago to see if that would help his IBS. We saw enough improvement that I considered the possibility of a more holistic strategy to resolve the multiple chronic conditions I’ve had for many years, if not most of my life.
I came across Dr. Amy Myers and took a leap of faith that this might be the solution I had been looking for. After extensive testing, I found I actually had multiple food sensitivities as well as extensive Candida overgrowth. After just a few weeks on The Myers Way®, I was managing my diabetes, my cholesterol tested normal, my energy improved dramatically, and I was making progress with taking control of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis!
I can honestly say that I feel I am the healthiest I have been in at least 20 years.
I have had so much success that our entire family is now following The Myers Way®. One of our daughters no longer has constant stomachaches, headaches and ear infections — simply by removing a handful of foods! We also found that our youngest’s ADHD is dramatically impacted by a change in diet.
What continually amazes me is conventional doctors’ insistence that food sensitivities and gut health could not cause all of these issues. From my husband’s gastroenterologist, to my endocrinologist, to the ER doctor, to the pediatric neurologists, all nay-say what we are experiencing.
To anyone who is considering The Myers Way®, I would say take this journey one day at a time. It is not easy and may require many life-altering changes, however the results can be so dramatic that it truly becomes a way of life, and not just a diet. A favorite quote that keeps me going: “Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.”
