“I couldn’t believe how much better he was in just 7 days after starting the diet. So Thank you!” LO Hudson, whose husband has Crohn’s.
But there are some diseases that often have a not so obvious digestive origin that George successfully treats:
- Brain Fog
- Migraines or Headaches
- Frequent Colds
- Weight Gain / Inability to Lose Weight
I had no idea that the symptoms I was suffering from were related to what I was eating. In turn, I now sleep better, have more energy, and when I get sick it doesn’t last as long.”
T. Schorn, Graphic Designer, Boston, MA
“After receiving my diagnosis of gastroparesis from my doctor, I found there were really no treatment options other than the drug Reglan…When I came to see George I was taking 40mg Omeprazole per day to stop the burn associated with gastroparesis. Much to my amazement after 4 treatments I was able to get off of my medication completely.
As an added benefit of acupuncture my general overall being has improved greatly. I sleep better and feel rested in the morning and have a much more relaxed feeling overall. George, I can’t thank you enough for giving me my life back!”
