“Hi, My name’s Melissa, and for about the last 12 years I had a bunch of issues with digestion as well as my menstrual cycles. They would, every month, cause me to pass out. Menstrual cramps would cause me to get light headed, nauseous, and throw up numerous times. I would skip out on classes because I didn’t feel well. I’d go out in the hall, and they’d find me fainted in the hallway. I had to miss orientation in the Nursing program because I was light headed as well.
It accumulated in February of 2013. I had a car accident where I blacked out from the pain while I was driving. I turned under the highway and was going northbound. Next thing I knew, I was unconscious and went into southbound traffic and was airborne. I hit a pole and was airborne two more blocks north and crashed into a tree. All airbags deployed. The car was completely totalled, but I walked away with only a scratch on my neck and bruising from the seat belt.
Needless to say, that was quite the wake-up-call that something needed to change. I was taking 25 Advil over the course of three days in order to even control the pain — it didn’t even completely eliminate it. It just kept the cramps under control.
I had tried everything – natural supplements and normal medicine. Doctors were just suggesting birth control and being on pain pills for the rest of my life. They were ready to do diagnostic surgery, but they weren’t doing any blood tests or tests to see where my levels were.
A friend recommended I try Dr. Goodbinder, and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made. From the moment I walked in it felt like I was talking to someone who treated your words as liquid gold and had to collect every word and not let anything fall to the ground. He did blood work and it was very clear. The cause of the pain came forth.
To give a rundown of the changes I’ve seen:
I’ve lost 12 pounds.
I went from having to take 25 Advil every three days to having to take 3 Advil every three days.
The pain is nothing.
I haven’t felt lightheaded in two months.
I also had digestive issues and would get bloated all the time. I could hardly eat regular meals without feeling bloated, even though I thought I was a healthy person. Now, I have no bloating ever. Everything’s just evened out. My skin cleared up. Everything’s changed, and I couldn’t be more thankful for finding Dr. Goodbinder.”
