I began my healing journey with Dr. Flannery about 4 years ago. Before I finally found him, I had been to at least 10 different types of doctors (internal medicine doctors, specialists, NDs, naturopathic doctors, integrative doctors, Medical Doctors, endocrinologists, acupuncturist, emergency room doctors, energy healers, etc.) with very little help. My symptoms were severe and included insomnia, tinnitus, hormonal imbalances, leaky gut, adrenal fatigue, constipation, hypothyroidism, hair loss by the handfuls, hot flashes all day and night, no libido, blood sugar dysregulation, brain fog and inflammation, compromised immune system, parasites, EBV, CMV, other viruses, and on and on.
It was in 1997 when I was 27-years-old that my health first started to decline. I was an upbeat, energetic, extreme athlete up to that point in time. It wasn’t until a falling-out with my father which caused so much stress in my life that my health began to decline.
It started out with headaches and moved on to depression. I became debilitated, so much so, that I could not even make a trip to the grocery store, it was too overwhelming. I tried to muster up enough energy just to go into work and make it back home. This was during my pre-healthcare days; I did not know anything about health. I was eating McDonalds 2 to 3 times per day and would order the fish sandwich when I felt like eating “healthy”. I saw specialist after specialist for my headaches, brain fog, fatigue, and my depression. I spent tens of thousands of dollars seeking help. No one could help me. (more…)
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia back in 1991, but I have been in constant distress with my health for the past 50 years. The number of doctors I have seen would shock you! When one doctor was finished running tests that didn’t show anything, he would pass me to the next specialist for more tests. Medication has been part of my life for my asthma, on and off of antibiotics (more…)
My experience with working with Dr. Mark Flannery over the past few years has been an incredibly pleasurable and beneficial one. Dr. Mark Flannery is a very informative, helpful, and caring Doctor that always takes the time to thoroughly explain everything to his patients and never hesitates to answer any questions or help in any way he can. When I first came to see Dr. Flannery (more…)
After receiving the Gardisil vaccination in February, I experienced severe abdominal pain that brought on vomiting, headaches, back pain and high blood pressure. I was in and out of the hospital for a total of 12 days in 2 months while they performed many tests including: blood tests, multiple cat scans, an MRI and other tests revealing no definitive diagnosis.
My sudden illness kept me from completing my schoolwork and I had to eventually (more…)
As a health care professional, I tried effortlessly to find someone that would address my health concerns. Nothing that Western medicine offered was effective. I knew that a pill was not the answer. After many years and thousands of dollars not covered by my insurance, I stumbled upon the book “Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? When My Lab Tests Are Normal” in 2010 by Dr. Datis Kharrazian. My passion is wellness research and I thought I could figure out my body and what it needed, evidenced by multiple supplements, multiple consults, and countless hours
spent researching remedies, modalities, which might offer an answer to my health issues. I felt like I was losing my mind and becoming a hypochondriac. I had reached the end of my rope with my weight at an all-time high of 185 lbs on my 4’10 frame along with the list of symptoms that accompany adrenal exhaustion, pre-diabetes, hypertension, high blood lipids, shortness of breath, and too tired to exercise. I felt like a balloon ready to pop. (more…)
