How Don beat 35 years of symptoms in 48 hours

My experience with the Hompes Method, as well as with Hompes Method Practitioner Jack Walton, was nothing short of remarkable.

After years of searching for the answer to my ongoing digestive problems, I followed Jack’s advice to take a simple, at-home test.

When the results of that test were sent to Jack, he advised me to take a single action that would change my life for the better within 48 hours.

When I consider the costs of the Hompes Method, miniscule when compared to what I have spent with all but useless mainstream medicine, it is my advice to anyone considering working with this group that you run, not walk, to your computer and sign up.

Don, aged 72 from North Carolina, contacted us because he’d been experiencing digestive discomfort for some 35 years.

He’d seen various doctors and specialists about his symptoms, but to no avail.

But within three short months, Don managed to transform his health and vitality using some simple methods that would seem ridiculous to most doctors.

What’s more, one of his symptoms – back pain and sciatica – all but disappeared within just 48 hours after removing one simple food from his diet.

How Don felt when he first contacted us

Here is a list of symptoms Don described on the initial intake forms he completed for us:

  • Stomach discomfort for 35yrs
  • Bad taste in mouth
  • Lower abdominal discomfort
  • Constipation
  • Slight bleeding from a hemorrhoid
  • Fingernail fungus
  • Felt hungry even after eating
  • Cravings for salty foods
  • Sciatic pain for 30 years (pain in his back and leg)
  • Dark circles under eyes
  • Bruised easily
  • Right ear ‘rushing’ and occasional pain down his neck
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Need for naps during the day
  • Frequent urination during day and night

As mentioned above, it had been 35 years since Don had felt good, but all that was about to change.

One simple diet trick solved Don’s sciatica.

During the very first consultation, it was recommended that Don avoid eating gluten.

Within 48 hours, his stomach pain and sciatica, which he’d struggled with for 30 years, completely disappeared.

In some people, gluten, which causes an autoimmune response in the gut, has the potential to trigger symptoms in the gut itself, and virtually any other place in the body.

It is particularly well known for its ability to cause neurological problems, leading to mood, memory and cognitive symptoms… and PAIN!

Clearly the way Don’s body was reacting to gluten had triggered nerve problems that were masquerading as low back pain and sciatica.

Interestingly, Don had been about 90% gluten-free for many years, but 90% is not enough if you’re gluten intolerant: it has to be 100% or not at all.

Can you now see why I’m so keen that people avoid gluten to see if it improves their symptoms?

Don’s stool test results

As we often do, we encouraged Don to run a home stool test because it was clear after 35 years of digestive symptoms that we needed a thorough assessment of what was going on.

Here’s what Don’s stool test revealed, along with a quick explanation of what the results actually meant:

Hess_Don_Case_Study

  • A strong Candida overgrowth showed that Don’s digestive system’s microbial balance had fallen out of balance
  • Norovirus infection – a significant finding and needed to be dealt with
  • An elevated anti-gliadin IgA indicated gluten sensitivity, which confirmed Don’s improvements when he stopped eating gluten.
  • Elevated sIgA-1 and sIgA-2 showed that Don’s immune system was way over-active
  • Elevated calprotectin indicated that Don digestive system was inflamed
  • Fecal occult blood indicated that Don was passing small amounts of blood in his stool

With all of this going on in Don’s gut, it was no surprise he’d been feeling unwell.

But he was delighted to finally have some answers!

How Don quickly regained his wellness

Don followed the Hompes Method nutrition guidelines, eliminating gluten and other problem-causing foods, whilst introducing healthier foods into his regimen.

He diligently followed three 30-day herbal and nutritional supplement protocols to rebalance his gut bugs, improve his digestion and heal his intestinal lining.

Jack held Don’s hand through the process with weekly or bi-weekly calls to make sure the process was simple and smooth.

How did Don feel after 90-days?

The road to wellness is different for each person.

Like Don, some people can have symptoms for 30 or more years feel better very quickly.

In others, it can take a little longer to get the to bottom of the issue.

Look at the improvements Don achieved in just three months and remember this was just using some dietary changes and a stool test!

  • Vitality was 7/10 and was now 9/10
  • Stomach discomfort for 35yrs – disappeared after 48 hours of being 100% gluten free
  • Bad taste in mouth – improved
  • Fingernail fungus – identified as related to coffee intake and reduced.
  • Lower abdominal discomfort – alleviated
  • Constipation – alleviated
  • Hungry after eating – completely alleviated
  • Craving salty foods – alleviated
  • Sciatic pain for 30 years – no pain after 48 hours onwards
  • Right ear rushing and occasional pain down neck – much improved & links to foods identified.
  • Disrupted sleep – much improved sleep quality
  • Need for naps – less need for naps.

I’m sure you will agree that for a 72 year old, these improvements were really impressive and it’s testimony to Don’s efforts that he achieved these results.

Don felt so well that he said to us that he was inspired to get back to writing!

Here is Don’s full testimonial

My experience with the Hompes Method, as well as with Hompes Method Practitioner Jack Walton, was nothing short of remarkable.

After years of searching for the answer to my ongoing digestive problems, I followed Jack’s advice to take a simple, at-home test.

When the results of that test were sent to Jack, he advised me to take a single action that would change my life for the better within 48 hours.

He was correct.

That was the beginning of a most remarkable three months of Hompes Method training that I purchased. (With Jack leading me all the way.)

The information I gleaned during that time has been instrumental in improvements to my overall health that were wonderful.

When I consider the costs of the Hompes Method, miniscule when compared to what I have spent with all but useless mainstream medicine, it is my advice to anyone considering working with this group that you run, not walk, to your computer and sign up.”

If Don can do it, I know you can, too

If you commit a little time and energy to yourself, you too can achieve health improvements like Don and many others.

It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, or what your doctor or specialist has said.

Sadly, medical opinion isn’t always right and it can be very disempowering to be told nothing can be done.

On top of this, medical testing for digestive problems isn’t that great – the tests are ‘old school’ and not particularly accurate.

Docs just aren’t that interested in your gut unless you have violent diarrhea and vomiting.

But most often, and as Don found, your gut’s where it all begins.

So if you have any digestive symptoms at all, it’s wise to run a stool test because you’ll uncover reasons for symptoms outside your gut as well.

It’s simple and effective.

You just provide a stool sample in the comfort of your own home – there are no embarrassing clinic visits and nurses or doctors to contend with.

You pop a sample into the test tube and mail it back to the lab for analysis in the packaging provided.

It looks for 55 different reasons why you might feel under the weather.

We analyze the result for you, and give you some guidance on what it all means, and the action steps you need to take to begin feeling better.

I’m biased but I think it’s a no brainer.

Irrespective of what your doc has told you, you CAN feel better, faster, and a stool test is the best starting point.

I don’t allow a year to pass without doing a stool test – I’ve done lots now – because I want to make sure each year that my gut is in tip-top condition.

What’s more, if the test comes back blank and we can’t help, I’ll refund every penny.

What do you have to lose?
