What our patients have to say about us:

With the help, encouragement and guidance of Dr. Mackenzie, I have in the last five months managed to shed 47 pounds toward a total weight-loss goal of 90 pounds.

My 9 year old son suffered for years with chronic constipation.  Within 2 weeks of seeing Dr. Mackenzie, his constipation was no longer a problem. She identified the foods that were causing his problem and cleared him of the sensitivity.  She also recommended probiotic bacteria.  The advice and treatment was so simple but incredibly effective. I am so grateful to Dr. Mackenzie.
D.O, Constipation Patient
I have suffered with headaches, twice per week, for several years. I was taking either Ibuprofen or Excedrin every week.  I felt uneasy about taking pain killers on a regular basis, but felt that I had no choice. I decided to see Dr. Gaila in May, 2011. Within 2 weeks of beginning the program, my headaches stopped.This program is fabulous.

Answer for my daughter’s hives and eczema. My daughter, the sweetest 2 year old ever, suffers from many allergies to foods and environmental allergens that cause severe rashes and hives.  We watched her suffer as she could not eat red pasta sauce, peanuts, wheat bread, pumpkin bread, corn products, and many other items that a normal toddler can tolerate easily.  She would break out in full body hives within minutes of eating any of these foods.  She also would develop rashes to any number of environmental exposures including dog hair, many flowers, perfumes, and even grass.  We spent our days covering her with lotion and hydrocortisone cream, making her drink benadryl and zyrtec, and trying every over the counter remedy available to help ease her suffering. Finally, we met Gaila. For several weeks, she desensitized my daughter with various substances, and to my surprise, it worked!  Somehow, my daughter can now eat almost any food without a reaction – where once there was hives to spaghetti sauce there is now a normal messy toddler slurping up sauce covered noodles.  She can also play outdoors without developing a full body rash from some unknown substance.  Yes, we still apply lotion and occasionally have to use steroid cream, but, our once suffering baby is now happy, playful, and able to enjoy life.  Gaila has simply been a miracle for our daughter.  I cannot begin to express the gratitude that our entire family has for her.

I first came to see Dr. Gaila in August of 2003. I had been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for several years.  I had seen many doctors and tried different medications, but nothing worked. Within 2 weeks of beginning the program, the stomach pain and diarrhea were gone.  I highly recommend Dr. Gaila’s program to anyone suffering from the symptoms of IBS.
Lupe P., Irritable Bowel Syndrome Patient
We wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for all that you have done for our family. Our daughter Danielle has been afflicted with a variety of allergies since she was 2 years old.  Her food allergies were so severe that she could eat almost no commercially prepared foods, either from the grocery store or in restaurants, without suffering some kind of allergic reaction.  Her reactions ranged from a rash to a mild cough that could last for several days. Through the course of your treatments we have eliminated her allergies one by one until Danielle can now eat virtually any food without worry of allergic reaction. It is not overstating it to say that these allergy treatments have fundamentally changed our lives.   We no longer need to prepare homemade foods for Danielle to eat when we are on vacation or eat at restaurants. We are fortunate to know you have enjoyed working with you, greatly improving our daughter’s health and our lives.

I have suffered with asthma, headaches, persistent cough and sinus congestion for the past 15 years.  I had to take Advair and use an inhaler several times per day.  I began the program with Dr. Gaila in May of 2011.  Within a few weeks, I no longer needed to take the Advair or use the inhaler.  My asthma has stopped, I no longer have headaches and my congestion is 90% better. I am thrilled about how well this program works.
Ralph M, Asthma Patient
I want to tell you how grateful I am for the life changing treatments, advice and caring support you have offered me. I am finally free from the nightmare of living with multiple chemical sensitivity!  I am no longer experiencing diarrhea, headaches, lightheadedness or fatigue. After suffering for the past 13 years and having to leave my home and live in a chemical free environment, I am finally able to live comfortably in my home and am currently enjoying a wonderful, hot, wood burning fire in my stove.  Thank you for giving me my life back! God bless you and thank you for your loving support.
Joannie M., Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Patient
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2003. In addition, I was also diagnosed with migraines and vertigo. My first visit with Dr. Gaila was on June 15, 2011. By June 29th, 2011, I no longer had diarrhea or blood in my stool.  My headaches were better and my dizziness was gone. I have continued to follow the program and 5 months later, I am still free of symptoms.
Alicia E., Ulcerative Colitis Patient
I started experiencing a painful skin rash on my face, neck and hands in 2004.  I was put on various drugs, including steroids and antihistamines and saw several different medical specialists, including allergists, dermatologists, internists and acupuncturists. My husband’s friend recommended that I see Dr. Gaila.  I was very skeptical and very reluctant.  I had seen so many other doctors and no one had been able to help me.  I first visited Dr. Gaila in May of 2007.  She asked me to give her 8 weeks to see if she could help me.  My first visit was on May 20th, 2007.  By July 10th, of 2007, my rash was gone – my skin was clear for the first time in over 3 years.  I am writing this in October of 2011 and my skin is still clear!
Patty D., Dermatitis Patient
“I have suffered from occasional constipation for as long as I can remember. Last year I was diagnosed with rectal prolapse, bladder prolapse, and uterine prolapse for which I had surgery to correct. Since the surgery which was January 2011 I had not been able to have a bowel movement without strong laxatives. I went back to the surgeons who had no idea what was going on and just told me to keep taking the laxatives. It was the worst year of my life until my husband urged me to see Dr. Mackenzie, I have been seeing her for a little over a month now and after the first week I was finally able to have a bowel movement without laxatives!  I have never felt so good and healthy. She is so amazing, I just wish I hadn’t waited so long to see her. Thank you Dr Mackenzie,  you have given me my life back!”
