At 27 years old, I was training for a marathon and was in the best shape of my life. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and prescribed medication. At 30 years old, I was diagnosed with Gall Bladder disease and referred to a surgeon. At 40 years old, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease and prescribed medication. Physicians blamed genetics. But, I thought there was an underlying issue causing these conditions.
I saw many alternative health care professionals and finally came across Dr. Kharrazian’s book and found out about Dr. Flannery. Once I saw Dr. Flannery’s intake forms, I knew that I was in for a new experience. The thorough health history helped Dr. Flannery understand not only my strong desire for becoming healthy and what I had done so far to try to be medication and symptom free. By the time I saw Dr. Flannery for the first time, I was miserable with gallbladder pains, constant stomach aches, always tired and cold and needing a nap everyday, just to make it through the day.
After extensive testing and listening, Dr. Flannery explained to me that I had many food sensitivities including gluten and dairy. He set forth a plan for me to follow that included a strict diet and supplements. Within a week’s time, I felt amazing. I had energy and did not need a nap to get throughthe day. I began to lose weight and the cravings for food were gone. My stomach aches and gall bladder discomfort were gone. I have continued to follow Dr. Flannery’s plan for me and we meet to make revisions as needed. I feel like a new person and believe that I now have the opportunity to live a very healthy life.
Dr. Flannery is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor I have worked with. He genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients and is truly committed to helping us live a healthy life. He has shown me that food choices, no matter how healthy they are for others, are not healthy for me. For the first time in about 16 years, I have answers and knowhow to keep myself healthy. I feel empowered.
