Age:

57, female

Story:                                   

Before coming to see Dr. Shahid I had continuous sinus infections, tired, and a general sluggish feeling inside and outside my body.  I knew it had nothing to do with depression, it had to do with my diet and my environment.  Dr. Shahid gave me the information I had been seeking for 15 years.  I could change how I felt by changing the way I ate and using vitamins and minerals that my body was lacking.  My body has not felt so clean inside and out in 15 years.  I feel as though I took each organ out and bathed it and returned it to its proper place.  I have lost 8 kilos without dieting.

Story:

After suffering with chronic sinus problems for over 30 years, I felt it necessary to seek medical attention from a different direction. Following my initial visits to Dr. Shahid, and having an allergy series, I have noticed a tremendous decrease in such symptoms as stuffy nose, sinus infections, psoriasis, gas, coated tongue, heartburn, headaches, and muscle stiffness. I feel much better during the day and evening as well; I pursue my family goals, personal goals, and professional endeavors. The change has been nothing less than remarkable to me over the past two months.
