I am 62 and have been a patient of Dr. McCully’s for three years. In April, 2007, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease after a week’s stay in the hospital. I was put on steroids and an immunosuppressant drug, mercaptopurine. I knew that there had to be more I could do. My chiropractor referred me to Dr. McCully. It has been a great experience. She put me on several supplements that greatly helped my digestion.

In the beginning, I could only eat soft foods. Now I can eat all the whole grains, raw fruits and vegetables I want. I feel one of the most important things Dr. McCully has done, was to test me for food sensitivities. This has changed my whole body health.

The Crohn’s medicine I was put on by my gastrointestinal doctor, suppressed my immune system to such a degree that I became sick with viruses more than I was healthy. Dr. McCully and I are working on many new things to keep my digestive tract healthy and improve my immune system. I feel very fortunate to be working with her and look forward to continuing my journey of staying healthy.
