“The Answer to my Prayers”
A few years after the birth of my son I began to gain weight quickly. I went on several different diet and exercise programs to lose the weight and feel better about myself. Some worked for a short time. Others did nothing but frustrate me to the point of depression.
Not only did I gain and lose weight, I was very fatigued all of the time. It was affecting my work and personal life severely. I was very moody, had terrible anxiety, and itchy eczema all over my arms.
Over several years I had seen many doctors and spend thousands of dollars trying to get an answer to my problems. I was tested for sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome by a sleep specialist. My family doctor tested for chronic fatigue syndrome as well as blood test after blood test for thyroid disorder. None of the tests showed anything that would help me. Finally I went to my gynecologist and was tested for menopause. That was also a negative result. I am only 38 but I was desperate.
I was at my wits end and so was my husband. Of course with all of these things going on in my life and my constant fatigue I had no sex drive.
Then I found Dr. Cederquist. Although she was not on my insurance plan I decided that she was my last resort and I would give her a try. It was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Cederquist was worth every dime and more.
Dr. Cederquist spent almost one hour with me on my first visit. She asked questions that other doctors never thought to ask and made me feel very comfortable. After getting to know my problems she advised me that she thought I may have some food allergies and so I began the Food Elimination Diet. The diet was a little difficult at first because I was so used to eating out. The dietitians are very helpful with recipes and ideas for cooking. After a few weeks of the Food Elimination program I started seeing a big improvement in all of my symptoms. Once the diet was over I began adding foods back in one by one. We discovered I had several food allergies which were causing all of the symptoms I was having.
I am no longer tired all the time. I have energy to work in the yard and play with my son. I have no depression or anxiety. My skin looks great and I have lost 10 pounds so far.
I highly recommend Dr. Cederquist to all of my family and friends.
