Throughout my adult life I had dealt with several issues like fatigue, irregular and heavy periods, severe sinus headaches and allergies. I had always struggled with my weight even as a young girl, I always thought it was that I took after my mom. I had told the doctor several times to look at my thyroid because I had all the symptoms of low thyroid and my mother had been diagnosed hypothyroid. But every time the doctors would test my thyroid they would always say it was in normal range. I even had a doctor tell me I needed to exercise more, I was already exercising an hour a day 6 days a week and sometimes 7 (much more than what I think the doctor was currently doing). Even with all that exercise for an entire year I had only lost 10 lbs. I was introduced to Integrative Wellness through a friend and met with Dr. Shields. After meeting with him I decided to get the testing and it revealed I had an autoimmune disease of my thyroid called Hashimoto’s. I also discovered I had significant food allergies and extremely high levels of inflammation (doctor told me that means damage to the cells in my body). Finally I had found answers to why I felt the way I felt. I knew there was more to my health issues than the typical excuses like “it’s just that you’re getting older” or my favorite “it’s just the way it is and you’re going to have to deal with it.” I knew it wasn’t all in my head. Following Dr. Shields’ recommendations to the “T” after 8 months I was actually skinny for the first time in my adult life. I had lost 60 lbs, I was down from 184 to 124. I hadn’t seen that number since I was in junior high school, now mind you it took a lot of work and commitment. I am not going to tell you it was easy but it was worth it. My menstrual cycles are normal now, my digestion is perfect and I haven’t reached for an allergy or sinus medication since I started care. I finally feel like I am in control of my health, I have been given the answers and a set of rules that I know if I follow them I can continue on this path.
