“My mother first heard about Dr. Patrick and his work from one of his current patients who encouraged my mother to bring me in to see Dr. Patrick.
Before I came to see Dr. Patrick I had been through almost everything to try and fix my fatigue and digestive problems. I tried Lyme treatments, vitamins for digestion, Beano, and a homeopathic approach with no sign of improvement. I even made a few trips down to the Scripts Clinic in San Diego. Not only did I not have any success but I was told that I was faking my condition and was a spoiled home-schooled kid. My body is so reactive that I couldn’t take many of the supplements and medications given to me because I would react or it would make my problem even worse. I took antibiotics for a month and I became sick for about a year due to the antibiotics causing my candida to be out of control.
My daily life consisted of being on the couch all day and sleeping. I was fatigued and in a great amount of pain. It was impossible to make any new friends or keep my old friends because one week I would be fine then for the next month I couldn’t leave the house.
Being stuck inside also caused some emotional issues to arise I became depressed and anxious.
Now that I have been seeing Dr. Patrick for about three months I can see a future for myself that I did not see before. I have started studying for school again and I am able to focus on my studies rather than my pain. I have even started taking my dog for walks regularly, which would have been impossible a few months ago. Most recently I was able to make a trip to San Francisco for a weekend without any problem. Before, if I made a trip, I would be exhausted for the next month just trying to recover.
I am really happy I met Dr. Patrick because I have my life back, and if I never had met him I would still be on the couch. Through this treatment I am now convinced that digestion is the underlying problem.”

"My initial reason for going to Dr. Patrick was because I was tired all the time. This condition has plagued me for the past 30 years...I've been to every kind of...doctor, also acupunturists, massage therapists, alternative doctors, and Chinese herbalist. I figured Dr. Patrick was just in line with everyone else who could not help me...
I rarely take a nap now. In fact I go all day without a nap and it never occurs to me to take one anymore. I can dance on Friday nights, dance on Sunday mornings and again in the afternoon and not get tired. I never thought in my wildest dreams I could go all day without a nap. I'm living proof that you can have more energy and feel better by doing what Dr. Patrick says...
One of the other problems I had was sleeping...I was also having anxiety and nervousness when I woke up in the morning and had trouble returning to sleep if I woke in the middle of the night. My sleep problems are a thing of the past.
[In addition,] bowel movements are a regular thing now."
