41 years female
When I first came to Dr. Shahid, I was severely allergic/sensitive to almost all foods. My immune system was in a hyper-reactive state and I was eating only 5 different vegetables and nothing else, because if I did, I would become extremely uncomfortable and fatigued and with 2 young boys, I could not afford that. So, by the time I visited Dr. Shahid on June 5th, 2006, I weighed 81 pounds (my normal weight is 110-115, I’m very petite) and I literally could not climb a flight of 14 stairs because I was so fatigued and malnourished. I also had bad acne, yeast infections, extreme mood swings and irritability, and my menstrual cycle had ceased. I was in very rough shape and fearing for my life. Dr. Shahid immediately administered Immuno-Nutrition and hyperalimentation by IV PUSH for 10 sittings, recognized that I was suffering from adrenal insufficiency and prescribed Hydrocortisone tablets(20 mg/day). I tested positive for yeast/molds and was put on extract shots (1 per week) and had me tested and diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia, which shocked me.. He began supplementing calcium, magnesium, copper, potassium, and iron for my anemia. In almost 4 months Id I have significantly improved! I now weigh 106.8 lbs (over 25 lbs. More!) and my energy has increased dramatically! I am able to tolerate many foods now. My skin has cleared and I have a healthy glow about me! (When I began, I looked like a “walking ghost”.) I exercise regularly, walk a lot, and have no problem climbing several flights of stairs. I also have much better control over my moods now that I know to eat more frequently (diagnosed with hypoglycemia) and my menstrual cycle began again.with very slight PMS symptoms. And no more abdominal pain!! Needless to say, I no longer fear for my life. I feel as though Dr. Shahid has brought me back from the dead, and I am very grateful for his help! I had been to over 21 doctors prior to Dr. Shahid, and was very distressed at how little they knew about my condition (IBS) and nutrition. Dr. Shahid is the first doctor that I feel safe with, that I am in good hands. I cannot express adequately how grateful I am — I’ve been given my life back! Dr. Shahid still plans to treat my thyroid and my osteoporosis will take time to improve, but I KNOW it will! Anyone who is skeptical or uncertain about his practice should look no further! He will most certainly put you on the path to good health, as long as you are willing to make the necessary adjustments. And isn’t good health what you want? To get your life back? What do you have to lose? I’ve gained tremendously!
Bronchitis, pneumonia, hormone, severe osteoporosis, bone pain, sickly all my life
60 yrs, female
I was sick most of my life with bronchitis, pneumonia, hormone (female), early cessation at 42 years of age. Then I suffered 50% loss of bone (severe osteoporosis). Fell four years ago breaking the femur in my leg in pieces, and shoulder in pieces. With allergy shots, hormones, progesterone, my bone pain has stopped. I walk better than most people and have a foot-long steel plate in left leg and a 12” rod in shoulder. I feel better than when I was very young. A year ago, before treatment, I had bronchitis for 5 months. No doctor visits this past winter because I took allergy shots. More energy since treatment. Feel younger again. Life is so much better and fuller, thanks to Dr. Shahid’s allergy treatment.
