It's rare to find a caregiver that is truly knowledgeable about thyroid and hormones, values your input and treats you with respect.
I struggled with undiagnosed and untreated hypothyroidism for over 20 years. I've had 2 doctors offer me a hysterectomy within 10 minutes of meeting me. I had done my research and I knew my symptoms were hormone and thyroid related but was told my TSH was normal, therefore it couldnt be my thyroid, a hysterectomy would fix my symptoms and I needed an antidepressant. Another caregiver treated my thyroid but only based on normal lab ranges so that I still felt horrible.
In the short time that I have been seeing Teresa, I have felt better than I have in a very long time. I still have a ways to go but I'm feeling better, thinking better and coping better. I have more energy and I'm losing weight because my body is getting the thyroid and hormones it needs!
I wish I would have found Teresa years ago.
I had been to see several Doctors over the past 5-6 years explaining in detail my multiple symptoms, all to no avail. My primary Doctor, over a long period of time, ran a slew of standard test (always excluding a hormone panel), where we tried multiple things, including Vitamin D and Vitamin B-12 shots. These made me feel better temporarily, but soon I was back with the same symptoms.
Thinking it could be my hormones, I then went to see a Gynecologist. One Doctor gave me a prescription of a low dose “Speed” which made me feel horrible! Another told me that due to my age and smoking, she refused run a hormone panel or to offer me hormone therapy. She told me that these things begin to happen as we get older and I would just have “To-suck-it-up” and “Deal-with-it”.
I cried many tears…but upon reading about the standard hormone replacements available, with all of the horrible /deadly side effects, I understood the reluctance of these Doctors to prescribe these.
I had given up and succumbed to the ‘fact’ that I would have to live the rest of my life just pushing myself to exist every day, I even believed, that perhaps, I was being a hypochondriac and that this was all in my head. So, my abilities to regain my life were all up to me and if not, I would remain unable to enjoy the daily activities, adventures and social interactions that where once a part of my life.
Until…I came across Teresa Mealy! Who listened to my symptoms, and having been through them herself, she understood…We ran the hormone tests…. And now….With Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and the correct supplements, I felt so much better! Having said that…after a little more time had gone by, I felt I was still missing a component. Teresa suggested a couple of genetic tests. It turns out that I had a mutation (MTHFR-C677T), which limits my absorption of B vitamins and more. I am now taking supplements to support this and I am now living a FULL LIFE again!
I can now exercise and other physical activities without it leaving me completely exhausted, muscle tone is returning, I can find the words to be able carry on a conversation, cognitive function has returned, I can go on vacations without being so wiped out all I want is sleep, I enjoy being intimate with my wonderful husband again, attend to daily affairs and SO MUCH more.
Thank you and BLESS you Teresa
