Crohn’s Disease

Dear Dr. Andreano

I wanted to thank you for your treatment; it has changed my life. As I remember, I arrived at your clinic diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome in 1999. I was only 24 years old. It’s been and uphill battle since then. I had a colon resection almost 5 years ago and suffered from spasms in my abdomen (labor pain) every time I ate. I would take pain medications and then sleep for 4-5 hours. Sometimes the pain medications would not work, and I was in and out of the hospital on a monthly basis to try to control the pain with Morphine or Demerol.

As you can imagine, my health was affecting my mood and mind. I was sick of being sick, and did not see my health improving any time soon. As a result, time was taken away from my family and friends. I was unable to commit to church functions, help with my children’s field trips, attend friends’ weddings, or even plan family vacations. Due to all the medications I was taking, my health continued to deteriorate. My organs (liver, gall bladder) were being affected. I was at the point where I felt like Job.

I arrived at your clinic and started the plan you selected for me. Even though I did not see immediate results, I kept doing it, step by step. About 2-3 months after the start of the plan my spasms started going away. I can now sat that I am pain free! I have been enjoying life with my family and friends regularly. I believe that God used you to heal me, and for that I thank you!!!
