What Our Root Cause Patients have to say . . .
My head was fuzzy and I just wasn’t as sharp as I wanted to be and my Chai Latte was the only thing that got me going.
As a wife and a mom of 4 amazing kids, all of whom were launched, I knew I should be happier, I knew I should feel better . . . but I was just flat. I prayed for a solution.
It had been a rough few years, we had moved out of state to care for my dad who needed help . . . That was crazy stressful. My kids were all in school, there were a couple of big health scares and my poor son was bullied horribly.
Then I had a nasty episode of diverticulitis in my intestines and they have never been right since. My gut was a mess. Then menopause and the mood destruction that happened with it. I was exhausted, just fatigued . . . all the time, even after a nap.
My migraines were taking over my life, they even made me numb on one side! Scary. And then covid happened, the stress of teaching got way worse and I saw Dr. Thompson's post. WHAT?!? The answer was on Facebook?
I truly feel like God dropped her into my life just when I had enough of feeling this way.
What surprised me was the ease of it all. With Dr. T it was like hanging out with a great friend that just knows her stuff. She truly listens. That surprised me too. Let's be honest, most doctors just reach for a script without really getting to know you or your concerns.
NOT Dr. Thompson! She wanted to get to the root cause of all of my issues.
I knew after our first call that I was making the investment to get well. To be the person I am supposed to be! OMG! From the get go, I felt and saw a difference in me. (And so does my husband) I thought it would be hard, but it really wasn't!
The rewards have been great. I even bought a two-piece this summer. I feel amazing!
I learned to listen to my body.
I learned how to heal from years worth of damage.
I learned to say "no" and not feel guilty, like I had in the past.
I learned that I don't need mommy’s little helper to be my best.
For the first time in 55 years, I can truly say I love myself.
I am finally feeling comfortable with the skin I am in!
Thank you Dr. Thompson.
