We found Julie to be a God-send considering the many digestive issues that I had since October of 2016. We learned of Julie from a member of our family and called her for help. Julie came to our home where she spent three hours explaining what I was enduring while also providing a reason for every thing that I was allergic to. She also helped us figure out a diet that was more conducive to my needs while also explaining how many other foods weren't good for me. As Julie explained, it would take time battling what is called Acid Reflux, but the end result is that I have gained back about 15 pounds and feel much better thanks to her guidance and understanding. We highly recommend her for not only her expertise, but also her understanding in dealing with a painful and confusing disorder.
I also wrote a blog which details our experiences with acid reflux and how Julie carefully diagnosed the issue and paved the way to my recovery. I now understand what food to eat and what vitamins to take en-route to a better life.
