This is my favorite Testimonial. When he came to see me his chief complaint was a tremor he had in both hands. He was a writer and often took his pad and pen with him to capture his inspiration. When he had his fill of Rxs he came to see me.
 
 This is his  letter after he learned the power of delayed food allergies:

Patient to Doctor — Success!©

“Growing older” always seemed to mean counting the years and boring young folks with tales of how I won World War II single handedly. Lately, it has meant trying not to notice each new physical complaint.

“Luckily, my doctor had the standard treatment for each symptom: Vasotec for elevated blood pressure; Motrin for back pain; Valium for shaky hands; more Motrin for knee pain; antacids for bloating; and more Valium just for feeling lousy.

“Years ago, I discovered that my mother and New York State were both wrong. Milk was not good for me. Without milk, my digestion improved, but I was still bouncing from constipation to diarrhea with constant heartburn.

“Every morning I ate a sesame bagel with a coughing spasm that made me guess that I had a wheat sensitivity, but I wouldn’t back away from my favorite breakfast.

“I’m blessed with a sunny disposition, but that smile was wearing thin.

“Now comes the good part. I went to see Dr. Alfano. Having read her columns about food sensitivities, I thought she could help me feel better. Now, three months later, what has happened is unreal. The results of a blood test uncovered a plan that I could follow. At last my body wasn’t fighting my food intake.  My life and mood have completely changed.

“My blood pressure is now normal without medication. My back pain is gone, and my hand tremor has subsided. My knees don’t hurt, and my digestion is as good as it was in 1944 when I was in the Army and could eat nails.

“Although this was not a reducing diet, I’ve shed 30 pounds. My waist size has gone from 40 to 36, and I feel great! I can hardly believe it myself, Dr. Alfano, I love you!”.

(By the way, this gentleman is not sensi­tive to the wheat in the bagels. The sesame seeds were the problem!

    Good luck with the reuslts! I'm planning to start tracking my eating, sleep habits, and workouts so I can be armed when I finally make an apt with a doctor to try and figure out why I'm so fatigued all the time. Blood tests show all levels are normal. Frustrating! This post has me wondering if I should seek out a naturopath Dr. though.

      Depression medicine is very doruenags and does not help the problem, it can make people much worse and when they try to get off it some people go a bit nuts, a read an article about it recently that was quite alarming.a pill cannot get rid of depression, not really and not for good. the problem is in your mind, your thinking, psychology, you need therapy of some sort.depression has no quick fix, you have to sort out why your depressed and deal with it, learn new ways to think, sort out your mind and life that the depression is coming from.
