Digestion Difficulties

I first came to see Dr. Giaquinto in July 2007 because I had severe digestive difficulties.  For thirteen years all the muscles on the right side of my body were always very tight creating migraine headaches, neck, lower back, and sciatic pain. This condition brought on constant pain.  I assumed gymnastics, playing sports, and having a really active lifestyle may have caused my condition.  Unfortunately, this condition interfered with my life to a great extent.  I couldn’t run any more, lift weights, watch movies in a theater, drive for long periods of time, or even take long walks for shopping.  I couldn’t do anything too physical or else I would pay for it. Every time I would eat, I would get indigestion, nausea and diarrhea.  I have seen many acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, naturopaths and medical doctors for my condition.  The naturopath had helped with the food allergies, but for the most part I only experienced short term relief seeing these professionals.  I was referred to Dr. Giaquinto by a friend of mine that swears by him.  Dr. Giaquinto put me on an enzyme program to help with my digestion.  The enzymes have helped tremendously and they re-enforce what I should be eating and are a great reminder for me to eat properly.  With my digestion system working extremely well now, the rest of my body is feeling much better due to the decreased nutritional stress.  Thanks to Dr. Giaquinto, I am now resuming the active lifestyle I use to have thirteen years ago.
