My main symptom leading me to seek help at AltneraCare was hypothyroidism; I was diagnosed two years ago. After seeing my primary care physician for an annual physical, he called to tell me my diagnosis and that he had already called in my synthroid prescription. I started taking it, but I was looking for other answers. I sought a second opinion and started reading everything I could about thyroid issues. At my worst, I felt sluggish, tired, overweight, and unmotivated. At work, I didn’t feel motivated to do the paperwork involved in my job and I didn’t want to be creative and solve problems. By the time I returned home, I was tired!
Though I forced myself to go for a bike ride or walk, it only made me more tired. My meals were becoming increasingly less nutritious because grabbing something quick was easier. My budget for eating out was over its limit. I was also paying a lot for massage therapy for my muscles. I was giving up on being healthy again. Then, a friend of mine referred me to AlternaCare. I was hesitant at first, but decided that I could either live with my health issues or give this alternative a try. Besides hypothyroidism, I was experiencing other symptoms: eczema, weight gain, and muscles aches (especially in my right shoulder and hip). I tried creams and topical ointments for eczema. I tried more exercise for weight loss (I rode my bike, jogged, walked). Massage treatment was how I tried to decrease the muscles aches. I didn’t necessarily relate these other symptoms to my physical health or my hormones; I believed they were all part of aging. However, I learned that they were related to my physical health and hormones!
After following Dr. Rob’s program specifically designed for my health issues for four months, I returned to my primary physician for another thyroid test. I have now been off my synthroid for a month! It was an emotional moment when I heard my primary physician say, “Discontinue the use of your synthroid.” However, not only did my thyroid heal, but my other symptoms improved, as well. The eczema has improved. I lost 42 pounds and therefore feel much better, and I no longer have muscles aches. My energy has returned so I work more efficiently and creatively. I also have plenty of energy left to accomplish tasks at home and cook a healthy dinner. Other symptoms, that I was unaware of until I didn’t have them, that have gone away are raised bumps on my legs, skin discoloration, and anxiety. I even sleep better – even if I awaken during the night, I go back to sleep quickly and awaken in the morning feeling refreshed and rested! AlternaCare is staffed with wonderful, caring people – they want to see you healthy and living your best life! Dr. Rob is not only there to guide you through the program, but also to teach you! I learned so much about my health and how issues in one area are related to others! Thank you Dr. Rob!! • • •
