Feeling Like Myself Again

by: Wine M. on 03/06/2014

About two and a half years ago I had begun experiencing symptoms of what I thought to be the later stages of menopause. My symptoms were text book; fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, hot flashes. Thinking that this was perfectly normal at “this time of life”, I took my doctor’s advice to not start any hormone therapy unless symptoms were intolerable. They were at most times, only a minor inconvenience and did not affect my daily activities. All medical exams were normal; I was in good health and physically fit. As a practicing Taekwondo student and instructor, health and fitness were a vital part of my life. Fast forward a year later and my life and health are a drastically different picture. Over the course of only a few months my symptoms elevated rapidly. I was gaining weight and not able to lose it no matter what I did. I was experiencing extreme fatigue, insomnia several times a week, anxiety, brain fog, severe digestion issues, and pain in what seemed like every inch of my body. Simply put, I felt awful and it took everything I had to get out of bed each day. During my annual physical my doctor discovered though a blood test that I had Hashimoto’s. I did some research on Hashimoto’s, auto-immune deceases, and thyroid conditions. Honestly, I was scared, anxious, and did not know what to do next. I felt completely overwhelmed, and even a little hopeless. A friend who was also diagnosed with Hashimoto’s was treating with Dr. Roney and recommended I do the same. IT WAS THE BEST ADVICE I EVER TOOK! I went to the website, read every word, watched every video, and made my first appointment. Only a few weeks after starting treatment and supplements, making lifestyle changes, and changing my diet I noticed that some symptoms were already improving and my digestions issues had significantly reduced. I was very happily surprised and realized there was hope. Each week following I felt better and better. There were some definite challenges, and even a few set- backs, but Dr. Roney is true to his word and was there every step of the way with support and encouragement. Now, fast forward again and I am now feeling more like myself. I sleep better AND sleep through the night, waking rested. I have energy and can enjoy an active life again. I no longer “lose it” over little life stresses and the brain fog has lifted. The pain is gone and it feels great to move again. And thankfully, I am now losing the weight. And the bonus, the occasional “bad day” is manageable and tolerable. I am looking forward to the ongoing progress that I know is yet to come. Dr. Roney has given me the tools to do this successfully. He has a passion for helping his patients in and through the healing process. Dr. Roney is compassionate and listens to his patients. Truly listens. . . this is a gift, and I appreciate it more than I can express. I am grateful for all Dr Roney has done for me. The staff are genuinely caring and kind, and always helpful. I rest easy knowing that Dr. Roney and his staff are always there when I need them. They are an answer to prayer and continue to be a blessing in my life.
