So this is an overdue testimonial. For the first half of this summer, my health problems (gut, autoimmune, fatigue) took a serious turn for the worse. I spent a whole lot of time in bed, feeling pretty horrible-and I’m used to doing movement-related activities for 3-8 hours/day.
After working with Dr. Paul, things have totally turned around. I’ve had chronic issues for years now, seen countless doctors and specialists, tried all sorts of things… this was the first time I feel like I’ve had a proper evaluation-he took a very detailed case history and ran a series of tests to find out exactly what was going on. When we got back the results, he took time to explain all of the findings and discuss possible options. Read his posts: he’s constantly going through research and furthering his education on his own time, and was able to provide me options when conventional (and even some naturopathic) doctors had no idea what to do with me.
After starting his treatment plan, I instantly started feeling better than I had in months, maybe years…. I was breaking my personal strength records at the gym, actually feeling motivated to do well in school, stopped feeling so depressed (super low energy and gut problems seems like a pretty easy recipe for some depression), and just feeling more like myself again. I still have a ways to go and there are ups and downs, so I’m not trying to promise some quick fix; consistently thru diet and lifestyle changes are key-but I feel like I actually have the energy and support to do well with these things now. I have been recommending Dr. Paul to all of my friends. Especially for anyone who has fatigue, gut/digestive stuff, or mysterious chronic issues going on, he’s your guy.
I met Dr. Saladino at the gym one day, when he was beating the absolute shit out of the heavy bag. After talking with him about Muay Thai, bjj, and surfing, I found out he is an MD and functional medicine doctor as well. It’s not very often you meet someone who has the medical background, as well as such a vast understanding of nutritional biochemistry, gut health, and genetic markers as he does. It’s one thing if someone’s talks the talk, and it’s a whole other thing when they walk the walk. Paul doesn’t provide a belief system (paleo, vegan, keto, etc) but instead, uses blood work and genetic testing to find out what YOU specifically need. Are you getting enough zinc from your diet? How about the other minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids you need to be functioning at your most optimal? How is your glutathione status, and other immune system markers? You don’t know if you don’t look under the hood. And that is what Paul does. He can look at your biochemistry, and tell you what you need to do to make your vehicle of a body to perform like a Porsche instead of a Civic. Give him a call, take a look under the hood. Your viewpoint on nutrition will never be the same, I promise you. "
“I worked with Dr. Saladino for issues with low energy and depression, and since implementing his recommendations, I have seen significant improvements. I used to come home after work too tired and unmotivated to make dinner and catch up with my wife, but that’s not the case anymore. I have more energy for my physically demanding job of routesetting and more motivation for my climbing. I feel much more myself.”
