Although I must admit, in the beginning, I was sceptic thinking this would be a waste of time because she did not offer a cure but rather explained to me to that it will take some time until we see results, but that it will be worth it. She was asking me a lot of questions, was very engaged to listen to what I had to say and what I thought. It was refreshing to feel finally heard by a health care professional, without being rushed with some generic questions just so I an end up again waiting for a line at the pharmacy to collect my prescriptions. She understood my way of life, my food preferences and very little time I had to spend on myself due to my job requirements. I felt there was no judgment what so ever, but I felt she addressed my problematic lifestyle habits in such a way that at the end of the consult I was really ready and wanted to change them solely because I was finally aware of how they wreak havoc on my health. I was overweight, with a lot of stomach issues including acid reflux, pain, discomfort, bloating after meals, and very irregular bowel movements. I had a very Standard American Diet with allot of takeout food due to my work schedule. What became very challenging for me was that I was dependent on my antacids after literary every meal. My heartburn was getting out of control.
I started worrying when my antacids were not working anymore, and I had to increase my dose to 2 sometimes 3 Tums after a meal just to soothe my heartburn.
This was the reason that made me want to try to work with Biljana. As I said earlier, she asked a lot of questions, she listened to my story, and she explained my lab results and what they meant to my health struggle. I had a feeling that it was the both of us that made a therapy plan for me because she was recommending, but in the same time listening to what I am able and willing to do, and what I am not. She individualized her diet plan to my needs, and I must say, I was surprised to how it made it so easy for me. She introduced me to some roots and plants that I took instead of my antacids, for which it took some time getting used to, but the results were nothing short of a miracle.
I am happy to say my heartburn, my stomach issues and me going to the restroom have much improved with an occasional need for Tums depending on what kind of meal I decide to indulge on. I am happy and very grateful because she helped me with my stomach issues, taught me how to use food as medicine as she likes to say, and what I was not expecting, in the whole process I even shed some pounds, started sleeping better, am more interested in my health and well being, and even lost some pounds around my waist.
I recommend for whoever is trying to gain some control back over their health, is tired of having their health symptoms ruling their everyday life, to give it a try and work with her. I hope she can help you as much as she helped me.
Thank you thank you thank you Biljana,
