Dr. Leonard Feld: So, a lot of times there are side effects and with every drug and it has disclaimers and they could be doing this, could be doing that, could be doing that and so yeah you are masking the problem you are not fixing the problem and I don’t really do anything, I don’t treat symptoms I try and fix with problem. Jano: I was diagnosed with h pylori. What happened was I started having some blisters in diarrhea and so it went on for a couple of weeks, went to a month cant being a mom I was like oh I will get over it don’t worry about it, well I couldn’t get over it so I went to my doctor and they tried to tell me that I had herpes and other symptoms and they put me on medication nothing helped. I would say that I probably seen about 45 doctors then to the Osborn Scottsdale Clinic in Scottsdale Arizona, then to the Mayo Clinic then to Yuma Regional Medical Center in Yuma Arizona diagnosed me with Crohn's colitis in 2006 February 2008, the symptoms came back, they started me on -- again taking nine pills a day which equals about 4,800 milligrams of ibuprofen and aspirin a day and prednisone, 65 milligrams of that a day and then pain killers and of course antibiotics and I think I have an allergic reaction of the colossal, the sulfates in it just stick to my stomach and the side effects are bleeding, diarrhea, loss of hair, you know which I have that already so it really doesn’t help and prednisone makes it swell up and of course put you on a roller coaster ride. Dr. Leonard Feld: -- no color what so ever, her circles on her cheek, she has like three circles blending into one huge one, she was suffering from depression and she dint know why she was here and it was just like she was just hopefully she could find something that she had no clue, we start communicating and I did some few little tests and things and her eyes start sparkling all of a suddenly, oh my God this is different, this was different but it was really tough because she was in a definitely a down hill spiral, if she hadn’t hit bottom, it was pretty close and I could see that in her eyes, they were really small and she was all puff in gray. Jano: He put three popsicle sticks in the back of my jaw and when I came in you could hardly touch my neck, my face, my head everything hurt so bad and when he put those three popsicle sticks back there, it made all the different. So, for the next week until I saw him I used the three popsicle sticks when I started getting headache and want to get popsicle sticks when I got back to Yuma and used them until we came back and actually until I got the orthotics more at the compound pharmacy set me down, I was picking up for -- and he asked me what was wrong with me, why I talked funny and I didn’t understand what he was asking, I said well I have blisters and I have Crohn's, he said you don’t have Crohn's, you have a TMJ problem. And he picked up the phone and called doctor Feld and it was 5.30, they are closely let me in and did a couple of procedures on me checking my balance and I don’t know exactly what they call it. I could stand or hold my arms out and tell me that more tell me that he thought I had a nerve problem right here called the vagus nerve and he told me -- because his daughter had similar problems. I had been to so many places and seen so many mainstream doctors and they don’t believe in anything holistic and they just give you a pill to cover it up and a painkiller to make thing go away. So, we are driving up the mountain and I just get killing in either of us to believe it and we cant believe that he would stay after hours to even speak to us, we went home and actually looked at some stuff about TMJ on the internet because I dint know a lot about it, I dint realize how much everything is connected and how this nerve couldn’t be connected to my stomach and my colon and may be the whole problem because everything is out of alignment. I had hopes, I hope because I felt like he wasn’t pulling my leg and do
