I came to Matt because I had chronic inflammation and infection in the colon. It made my legs feel heavy, burning, and achy. I felt tired all of the time, and felt like I had the flu. I was constantly gassy and bloated, and I didn't want to eat. Matthew pinpointed the foods (that I had been eating all of my life, because I thought they were healthy!) that were causing my inflammation and bowel problems. Now that I've changed my diet, I feel great, my inflammation is gone, and I haven't had any more infections, gas, or bloating!
