“I started going to Melissa Karch in July 2016 for gastrointestinal issues. I had been diagnosed with a stomach full of ulcers and needed information as to how to adjust my diet to help heal my insides. Melissa had great info right from the get-go that gave me immediate relief for some of the problems I was having. As my progress continued, we worked together to see how foods were possibly affecting another condition I have called fibromyalgia. Melissa suggested that my food choices could be causing inflammation within my body which could be increasing my chronic pain levels. She suggested the LEAP MRT testing for me. Because the test was individualized to my body, I learned what foods to avoid, which foods to control the amounts I eat, and what foods are safe for me to ingest. While I did experience an intense detox the first few days, I knew this was a sign that my body was full of inflammation and that this new eating plan could change my life. Amazingly, before the detox period was over, my chronic pain levels started to decrease. In fact, after a few days, I went from a consistent 6-7 pain level to a 0-1 pain level in my back. The other doctors I was working with were amazed at my results and all ended up discharging me since the food adjustments were helping me more than physical therapy, drugs, etc..
Melissa has changed my life. Not only has she taught me how to eat for my body, she has opened my eyes to “clean” eating and has inspired me to cook (something I always hated doing). I now read ingredient labels on everything I buy and am very conscience of what I chose to ingest and/or feed to my family. I have told everyone who will listen how great Melissa is and what relief I have achieved from treating with her. I highly recommend her for anyone with physical conditions as well as those who just want to learn more about food and how it affects our bodies. She is a miracle worker!!”
