What Patients Are Saying
I have been 80% paleo/primal for 8 years but still struggle with IBS-D and some eczema on the back of my hands. Results from the various tests and the discussion I had with the Moday Center members helped rule out certain things while highlighting some deficiencies in my diet.
My eczema is now gone and my IBS-D is much better and I feel I have control over it now…If you are really serious about fixing a health issue and you are not getting help from your doctors, try talking to Dr. Moday.
