I started to have pain in my knees which I thought was from over exercising. After a few weeks, the pain spread to my hands, feet and elbows. I had no idea what the issue was but after a month I was having a hard time getting through the work day and sleeping at night due to constant pain in my joints. I saw my primary physician who referred me to a rhuematologist due to my test results. This specialist told me I only had three out of the four symptoms needed to be diagnosed and to come back in six months.
Luckily, Dr. Gloria took a completely different approach to my symptoms and helped to uncover the underlying issues causing my pain. She listened to my problems and came up with a plan to help heal my body.
Dr. Gloria is the reason I am able to enjoy a pain free lifestyle. After being discouraged with the traditional medical system, she provided a new way to understand and heal the body through nutrition, supplements and all natural remedies. We completed various labs so she could take an extensive look at my gut health and foods that could be triggering my inflammation. We then came up with a plan to combat how my body was reacting. It wasn't easy, it was the most challenging thing I have done. However, after a year of her guidance, I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made to support my longterm health.
Based on my experience with traditional medicine, Dr. Gloria's approach is different in every way. Her goal is to understand the underlying cause of your symptoms. She spends an extensive amount of time learning about your issues and coming up with a customized plan to heal your body. Its not about masking symptoms with medication but understanding your illness to solve the problem.
I would recommend Dr. Gloria to all my friends and family. She is extremely knowledgable and truly cares about her patients. I have learned a lot through this process and take every opportunity to educate others. If someone has a chronic or autoimmune issue, I always bring up Dr. Gloria and her approach to healing.
