Summary

I recently attended a seminar by Dr. Tuchinsky at a local restaurant. That night changed my quality of life in three short weeks. Prior to the seminar, I had been experiencing severe abdominal pain, bloating, headaches, irregularity, and fatigue. I didn’t want to go the traditional route with a medical doctor treating the symptoms and not the cause. I took to the internet and researched my symptoms. I had all the symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome. It was very confusing because there was so much information about contradictory treatment solutions. I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat and what to do. I was impressed with the information on his website. The thing that impressed me the most at his seminar was his statement, “I don’t guess, I test!” I was still a little skeptical but what did I have to lose. I was tired of feeling sick.

Dr. Tuchinsky did extensive blood work and spent time with me going over my information and got a thorough background on my health. The next week I received a detailed report on the results. I was shocked at how many issues I had. He tailored an individualized six-week plan to address two different issues based on my results. He then designed a treatment plan detailing what to eat, foods to avoid and gave me quality physician grade supplements for each week. After the first week, I felt a little better and had more energy. The second week I felt a lot better but still had some pain and much more energy. Today when I went in at the third-week mark, I was shocked and excited to report no pain after eating, energy levels better than can remember having. Most symptoms are gone! He wasn’t surprised, it was the results he expected, right on schedule.

Now I start on the other issue over the next three weeks, the Liver Support Phase, not with skepticism but confidence. He says it is not magic or rocket science, but it was for me!
