Story:

When I first came to Dr. Sultan, I was severely allergic/sensitive to almost all foods. My immune system was in a hyper-reactive state and I was eating only 5 different vegetables and nothing else, because if I did, I would become extremely uncomfortable and fatigued and with 2 young boys, I could not afford that. So, by the time I visited Dr. Sultan on June 5th, 2006, I weighed 81 pounds (my normal weight is 110-115, I’m very petite) and I literally could not climb a flight of 14 stairs because I was so fatigued and malnourished. I also had bad acne, yeast infections, extreme mood swings and irritability, and my menstrual cycle had ceased. I was in very rough shape and fearing for my life. Dr. Sultan immediately administered nutritional and amino acid I.V.’s (10 of each), recognized that I was suffering from adrenal insufficiency and prescribed Cortef (20 mg/day). I tested positive for yeast/molds and was put on extract shots (1 per week) and had me tested and diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia, which shocked me because I had danced for 20 years, until I was about 26 years old (I'’ now 36). He began supplementing calcium, magnesium, copper, potassium, and iron for my anemia. It is now September 23, 2006 (almost 4 months since first visit) and I have significantly improved! I now weigh 106.8 lbs (over 25 lbs. More!) and my energy has increased dramatically! I am able to tolerate many foods now. My skin has cleared and I have a healthy glow about me! (When I began, I looked like a “walking ghost”.) I exercise regularly, walk a lot, and have no problem climbing several flights of stairs. In fact, I plan to begin dance classes next week. I also have much better control over my moods now that I know to eat more frequently (diagnosed with hypoglycemia) and my menstrual cycle began again on September 5th (I never thought I would be happy about menstruating, but I’m glad it happened!) with very slight PMS symptoms. And no more abdominal pain!! Needless to say, I no longer fear for my life. I feel as though Dr. Sultan has brought me back from the dead, and I am very grateful for his help! I had been to over 21 doctors prior to Dr. Sultan, and was very distressed at how little they knew about my condition (IBS) and nutrition. Dr. Sultan is the first doctor that I feel safe with, that I am in good hands. I cannot express adequately how grateful I am -- I’ve been given my life back! Dr. Sultan still plans to treat my thyroid and my osteoporosis will take time to improve, but I KNOW it will! Anyone who is skeptical or uncertain about his practice should look no further! He will most certainly put you on the path to good health, as long as you are willing to make the necessary adjustments. And isn’t good health what you want? To get your life back? What do you have to lose? I’ve gained tremendously!

Story:

After two years of feeling sick most of the time, I'm happy and relieved to finally find the cause of my ailments. I had visited so many different types of doctors for my various symptoms. Two different dermatologists put me on antibiotics for over five years. I now realize how harmful that was for me. Within two weeks of my candida treatment, the diarrhea subsided, the bloating improved, back and neck pain not as severe, skin clearer, cravings gone, I'm not as fatigued, and I have no more problems with yeast or respiratory infections. I've even lost about 7 pounds from being on the candida diet. It's been two months since I've begun treatment here and my general sense of well-being has dramatically improved. In addition, I used to suffer severe PMS 10-14 days before my period. My last two cycles were very mild with minor cramping the day before. Hallelujah!

Story:

I first came to Dr. Sultan in March for treatment of acne. The acne was very severe on my face. I had 10-15 large cysts and blackheads and whiteheads. It did not improve much the first month, but after I started treatment for Candida, it started to improve. I also started taking Vitamin A. Now I have only one small cyst, no blackheads and occasional whiteheads. At the time I started treatment, I was also having premenstrual problems, including gas, bloating, and cramping. These problems have been eliminated. I am happy with my progress.
