Gregoria had been diagnosed with diabetes for 20 years when she first began treatment with me. Her primary complaints were burning achy kidney area pain for 15 years, fatigue, difficulty falling and staying asleep, blurry vision, daily leg burning and tingling of feet, neck pain, headaches and frequently would be angry even for no reason and often felt depressed. She had no appetite and frequently had constipation. Over the years more medications were prescribed and she felt they no longer were working. She did not feel in control of her condition. After 4 months of treatment all her kidney and back pain were gone, her digestion, energy, mood and sleep and burning feet were much improved. Her appetite had returned, all neck and headache complaints had abated. Whereas prior to treatment she was walking 2-3 times per week for 20-30 minutes, she was now walking for 30-60 minutes everyday.
Her clothes fit better and she was able to reduce here insulin injections, metformin, and blood pressure medications in half. Her original fasting blood sugar of 142 was reduced to 99 and her original HbA1c of 10.5 was reduced to 6.8.
What Gregoria had to say:
“I made the choice to see Dr. Bastomski because I wanted to get better instead of continuing to get worse. I had kidney pains, swelling and numbness of my feet, vision problems, depression, headaches and I was losing my desire to live life. Dr. Bastomski’s treatment of a specific diet, supplements and vitamins completely changed my life! After 4 months of treatment my A1C went from an initial 10.5 to a 6.8, I significantly decreased my insulin dosage, my symptoms were much better and my desire to live my life was back! His treatment is effective, life saving and he is simply the only Doctor that ever showed me how to gain control of my Diabetes. Thank you Dr. Bastomski!”

“I was having lots of stomach pain and digestive problems and also headaches, back, hand and foot pain. I had this problem for many years and they were affecting my life because I could not eat, I was anti social at work, I was depressed, nervous and I had no energy to do anything.
Before seeing Dr. Bastomski I had seen a lot of different doctors but nothing improved. After my treatment with Dr. Bastomski I feel great, much better than before. I wake up with motivation for the day, I don’t feel nervous or depressed anymore and I am able to eat more.”
