In a worst case scene that I have witnessed in my own clinic, a young patient was on his way to the University of Utah to have a Nasogastric tube put in to allow food to be directly in the digestive system, as he vomited up anything that he ate, or he was presented with diarrhea a short time after he ate. This was a young person who loved playing soccer, and otherwise was a very viable young man. They had heard about me from other patients who have experienced relief here. He was losing 4 pounds a week, and needing much to gain weight. After just one treatment here at Eagle Rock, he stopped vomiting, and his diarrhea decreased. In a matter of a month he had gained enough weight and strength to be able to return to the soccer field. It was such a vast difference in his health and well-being. In particular with this patient, he has severe lung issues – that was creating a vacuum into the thoracic cavity. We combined a lung treatment and then a digestive system treatment to help him overcome his impairments.
Chronic diarrhea can be a big problem for many people. Generally the people who have these symptoms are too thin, always tired, and have no energy. They can’t eat anything without it going right through them. They have been to many doctors and practitioners who have tried fruitlessly to help them, often telling them that they just have to live with it.
