Bob: Wine Connoisseur
Bob is a successful restaurant owner. Typically, he worked twelve-hour days, six days a week. During work, he sampled delicious foods, which was typically high in fat and calories. Bob also enjoyed wine and consumed several glasses daily. He was so busy managing his restaurant that he didn’t have time to exercise. After turning forty, he noticed a persistent gut ache. Constant heartburn, sour belching, and constipation alternating with diarrhea were common. After seeing many medical doctors, he was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The doctors prescribed a strong stomach acid–blocking drug, which gave Bob headaches. At his wife’s urging, he visited our clinic. He started the Digestive Clearing Program, and he took herbs to support his digestion. Bob noticed a significant improvement within three days. He learned several key points:
(1) he had to balance work with quiet time, including exercise and meditation;
(2) he had to limit his consumption of fatty foods;
(3) when he sipped herbal teas throughout the day, he had more energy and less desire for coffee. Since he wasn’t wired on caffeine, he didn’t require alcohol to relax.
The most difficult part of the program for Bob was eliminating alcohol for four weeks; however, his dramatic health improvement motivated him to limit alcohol consumption to weekends only. As long as Bob continues to take digestion-supporting herbs, exercise, and moderates what he eats, he doesn’t have digestive problems.
Mike: “The Skeptical Scientist”
Mike the “Skeptical Scientist” suffered from IBS, poor mood, and headaches.

None of this seemed to help, which only increased his skepticism and bad attitude. After starting the Digestive Clearing Diet, Andrew also suggested to avoiding cheap probiotics which can vary in quality and effectiveness. Mike also loved to eat out most of the time, which contributed to his digestive issues. Watch the complete video about Mike’s case and how Andrew helped him relieve his digestive issues and become a “True Believer” once again.
