You are one of the nicest doctors I ever met, it is your human skills!
Since starting the elimination diet and now cutting out any remaining foods on the ‘do not eat’ list I’ve noticed that my body is rapidly changing shape. … I never knew it’d be so easy to get such rapid results.
I went to see Dr. Frey with several undiagnosed problems, these were primarily issues regarding my digestion and fatigue. Following Dr Frey’s advice, I eliminated gluten and dairy products from my diet and I noticed an improvement in my overall health. I was really pleased with the service I received as it was caring, detailed and had a refreshing outlook on health compared to other doctors I had previously seen.
Having someone medically trained to work with and point me in the right direction has been a huge relief as finally, I feel that the cause of my health issues are being looked at not just the symptoms being medicated.
Thank you for seeing me yesterday afternoon. I found it very insightful and your observations have confirmed something I had been wondering about for some time.
Talking to Dr. Frey and discovering that at last I had found a doctor who understood my problem was like a Miracle.
I loved his analogy of the oarsmen in a slave galley, paddling to the beat of a drum but not putting the oars fully into the water. Just 2 days after taking his new prescription which included some T3 I was feeling a new person. The best testimonial I can think of is backed up by the 2 photos of myself, (to follow by post) …one taken when I was feeling quite ill, and the other after only 4 days on the new prescription.
It is not an exaggeration to say that, after months of getting nowhere with the medical profession in Dorset, I at last found my salvation in the CountryHealth Practice and heartily wish that conventional medicine would listen to the experts who have made an in -depth study of thyroid problems.
I am so glad I came. Thank you so much for listening to me and for being willing to help me on my health journey 🙂 I so appreciated your wisdom.
Following an appointment with Dr Frey in September 2018, and the results of the blood tests a couple of weeks later,
I followed all the advice given and also changed my supplements to those advised. For two weeks I had flu-like symptoms and felt very down, but, as I was desperate to change my low thyroid symptoms, I stuck with it. After three weeks I felt so much better; ‘brain fog’ lessened, gut problems (IBS) easing and generally feeling more well. I found a ‘tapping’ instructor on YouTube that I felt comfortable with and have followed this method of stress relief along with the meditation I was already doing morning and night.
It is now three months since my visit. Although the personal problems in my life persist, I am better able to cope with the stress, I sleep better and awake refreshed (something I hadn’t done for years), I can think and speak fluently and my memory has improved. And, by following a strict Paleo diet and cutting out the foods the blood test showed I had reactions to, I’ve lost 1.5 stone. I am not dieting in the conventional sense; I can eat as much as I like of the allowed foods. This has been the icing on the cake as I piled on 5 stone in the ten years since my under-active thyroid was diagnosed, despite being on levothyroxine that I had been assured would be all I needed to return to my normal self. I had tried many other diets in that time, with no weight loss.
Although I was initially anxious about the cost (hello, credit card!) I can honestly say it’s the best money I’ve ever spent as the consultation (and support from Dena) and following the plan has truly changed my life. Thank you!
This was the first proper consultation I have ever had!
Great service; superb. It is important to note that IgE tests for allergies – this test, IgG, is more for intolerances. I used it as I believed it could be a useful pointer for experimenting with possibly beneficial dietary changes. I have now stopped eating dairy and some other foods, and am definitely feeling more healthy and alive. Many thanks!
You are a lifesaver! Thanks for listening.
