One of my house sitting clients told me about Dr. David many years ago. I called into his talk show several times and got started on Iflora. I didn’t take it consistently back then and of course wondered why the product wasn’t working! It wasn’t until five years later that I actually took my symptoms seriously. That was August of 2006. My health was in such dire straits by then that I simply called his office and made an appointment.
I never researched NAET or Dr. David’s credentials. Something inside of me just knew that the services Dr. David renders were the answer to my lifelong search for my health. Understand, I had exhausted EVERY other avenue prior to my visit to Dr. David; general practitioners, vein specialists, MRI doctors, endocrinologists, sports doctors, acupuncturists, herbalists and vitamin therapy. I would only have temporary relief from my symptoms before they’d come flaring back.
My feet have been swollen since childhood. Once I hit my sophomore year in college the swelling extended up into my left ankle and calf. The swelling was so bad I could just barely get my pants off at night; and my mom could see the swelling through my pant leg. I had what is commonly known as pitting edema. Over the years, a heaviness I can only compare to the weight of a sandbag, accompanied the swelling.
In 2003 I had blood drawn to be tested for food allergies. Oh I definitely had a few of those. I was tested for 73 different food sensitivities and was allergic to over 40. The rotational diet was the supposed cure. It wasn’t.
In August of 2006 when I first met Dr. David face to face in his office I not only had food allergies, and edema but I also had adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism. If I had been a junk food eater with a sedentary lifestyle I probably would have understood my poor state of health better. However, this was not the case. I had lived in the gym for the past twelve years as a drug-free competitive body builder eating a very clean diet. As Dr. David put it to me one day, “You are a living example of the damage we have done to our environment. You eat well, you work out and you take vitamins. No one would ever know, just by looking at you, how sick you really are.”
When I think of how to describe NAET, three words come to mind: process of elimination. That’s what this has been for me. We had to clear out all of the allergies to see what the underlying problems were.
One of our biggest discoveries was that my stomach wasn’t producing enough digestive juices to break down my food. The result for me was extreme lethargy almost immediately following any meal. My belly would get bloated following the lethargy; and then my whole body would swell up because my stomach couldn’t digest the food. If your stomach cannot break down the food you are putting into it, you have serious problems. Needless to say, eating wasn’t very much fun anymore.
Another discovery was my allergy to the purified water I was drinking from a filter at my house.
Once I finished The Basics for NAET, we started on the kits. We were now able to test numerous items during an office visit as opposed to just one.
Here’s what I would tell anyone: make your health your priority in the least invasive way possible. I tell my clients all the time: You only get one body. Make the most of what you have been given and be nice to it! Where NAET is concerned, make the commitment to it and make it a priority in your life. There is no guarantee of a tomorrow.
I started NAET on August 22, 2006. The most visits I was allowed each week during The Basics was two. When we started on the kits I was allowed three visits each week. By December 21, 2006 we had completed all of the testing in the office. My edema was down by one-half to three-quarters, I had enough energy to exercise AND go to work all in the same day, my clothes were fitting again; and I could eat food without swelling up. I wish everyone would make such a commitment as this to getting their health back.
I have continued to make little discoveries of my own since December which have only improved my health that much more. I believe Dr. David has enjoyed my discoveries about as much as I have. His open-mindedness has allowed this to happen and made it very easy for me to refer people to him. In a FREE telephone call [Health Help Hotline] you can ask Dr. David any question. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I’m more than happy to answer any questions from a skeptical reader and share my victory! I was brought through this in order to help others… not just to keep it to myself.
