Treating IBS – A Patient’s Story

At age 33, this patient had suffered from IBS for over 25 years most of his life! His IBS started out with painful, cramping diarrhea. He was doing everything his doctors prescribed and was doing as much as he knew to do on his own. He had taken multiple rounds of antibiotics over the years and had many yeast infections. A scope into his stomach had shown that he had stomach and small intestine ulcers and inflammation. He also had major food intolerances, allergies, depression, and severe headaches that would turn into migraines. He was tired all the time and relied on coffee every morning to get through the day. He tried to eat healthy, but his diet was very limited due to the food allergies; and once he did eat, he felt full, gassy and bloated and had reflux. He tried eliminating grains and dairy from his diet, but nothing was stopping the disease process.

He would go to the bathroom a minimum of 5 to 6 times before he left for work in the morning. While at work as a paramedic, he always needed to know when and where there would be and if there was going to be a bathroom around. Can you imagine, trying to save someones life in a crisis and having a bowel crisis of your own. Not ok!

To help him, we had to identify the UNDERLYING CAUSES of his digestive problems! But first, let me tell you who this patient is, it was me! Yes, I had severe IBS and Ulcerative Colitis and I beat it without the use of Drugs and Surgeries!

How Functional Healthcare Healed Me

I found my answer through Dr. Jack Kessinger, DABCI, ND and Robert Kessinger, DABCI, DACBN. They found the exact mechanism that made me sick in the first place.

So, what did we do once we found out exactly how my body created this disease process? We used doctor-grade supplements and nutraceuticals that were biologically specific to me (it is different in everyones case). These normalized my gut, helped with digestion and the imbalances of my thyroid, healed my intestines liver and kidneys, and reduced inflammation throughout my body.

Please note that it is important to work with a functional healthcare practitioner that can personalize your health program to your own bodies biologically specific needs. You dont want something that is meant for anyone else but YOU!

What happened to me as I was healing was remarkable! Within just a couple of months, I HAD MY LIFE BACK!!!! No more bloating and running to the bathroom, no more food allergies and sensitivities. and lastly no more what ifs for the future of bowel surgeries or bowel cancers!


You dont have to suffer like I did. We have the science, the understanding, and the tools to deal with this chronic problem. There is no need to wait for any more studies. We have been assisting the body in helping IBS in my practice for over 14 years with amazing results.

In fact, just recently, one of my patients who had IBS so badly that he never wanted to leave his house told me that, for the first time in his life, he didnt have any more stomach pains or digestive problems!

Dont hesitate to get help for your IBS or Ulcerative colitis. We are here for you!
