“Today, All of My Symptoms are Gone”

Chanhassen chiropractor reviews

Learn the proper diet to treat your conditions

Before seeing Dr. Kennedy, I had daily stomach pains, cramping, constipation, bloating, and a distended abdomen. I was experiencing these symptoms for years and no medical professional could tell me what was causing them. I tried going to a chiropractor who stated GI problems could be solved with adjustments, so I made a one year commitment to a chiropractor.

After one year, my symptoms didn’t improve. My primary MD referred me to a gastroenterologist. They told me I was fructose intolerant but not lactose intolerant and was not sensitive to gluten.

They told me to change my diet to exclude fructose and if my symptoms didn’t subside I should come back in 30 days. I wasn’t given instruction on what foods to avoid though. My symptoms didn’t go away and my abdomen was more distended than ever.

I went back to the GI specialist and he told me to take “as much Miralax as I could everyday”. This remedy wasn’t even plausible with having a full time job and having a life, instead of sitting by the bathroom all day.

I was put on a prescribed medication for constipation which didn’t help at all. Then I was referred for a colonoscopy. After going through all the prep for the colonoscopy and the procedure itself, I was told nothing abnormal was found.

The GI specialist was stumped, so he just referred me to a pelvic floor center without any other instruction. After researching what the purpose of a pelvic floor center is, I knew the GI specialist wasn’t even listening to what my primary concerns were. So, I went back to my primary doctor who just referred me to have a scan of my abdomen and a pelvic ultrasound. So I followed through with both and still no results.

By this time, I had invested over one year to seeking help and going through procedures with no answers. I used to enjoy running and working out which I wasn’t able to do anymore because of my stomach pains, bloating, and distention. The referral to Dr. Kennedy came from my chiropractor.

I was reluctant at first, but thought I had nothing to lose at this point. Dr. Kennedy listened to what my concerns were and informed me of what Nutrition Response Testing entails before getting into anything. I was told to cut out fructose, lactose, and gluten from my diet. The difference was that Dr. Kennedy told me specifically what foods I should and shouldn’t eat which made it much easier for me to follow.

I was given supplements to take each day and was explained what each was for. I was told to stay away from plastics, such as water bottles and food containers that I was storing my food in. I was also given wheat germ oil for my scars. I followed my regimen exactly and began seeing results within the first week. I was no longer constipated and my stomach pains and cramping went away. I was learning what my body needed and didn’t need so changing my diet was easy because I knew I was helping my body heal itself.

After four weeks, my bloating subsided and my abdomen was less distended. I couldn’t believe what took over one year for medical doctors to work on started changing after one month with Dr. Kennedy. Today, all of my symptoms are gone and my distention is improving. I am not as self-conscious in clothing and I am able to run and be more active again. I continue seeing Dr. Kennedy and continue to feel better. My distention was my worst symptom and I know it may take more time for this last symptom to go away. I am more than willing to keep at it because I have already started feeling like myself again. I was skeptical and said that if this actually worked I’d be the spokesperson for Nutrition Response Testing. So here I am, promoting the outcomes of just letting your body tell you what it needs.
