I developed severe gastritis when I was a high school student. I made several trips to the ER due to pain, acidity and discomfort. My parents started worrying about me and I was seen by a gastroenterologist. My GI prescribed me medications that seemed to help with the symptoms but was unable to eradicate the root cause. I then consulted with Ms. Lavanya Kethamukkala who advised me to take the Mediator Release Test which is based off my blood work. Ms. Lavanya worked with our family together to eliminate foods from my diet while still providing alternate foods to meet my nutrient needs. I followed a strict dietary regimen and received constant help and support from Ms.Lavanya for the next six months that helped me return to normalcy. While going through the process was difficult, I am thrilled about the outcome. Thank you, Lavanya!
