I have looked & listened enough to be confident in my decision...he even has a radio show. I have watched videos & I am blown away. This man knows more about thyroid health than I ever heard from my endo! One video in particular, was "When All the Lab Tests Say You're Normal, But Your Not"...he could have been talking about me, with all the symptoms..and I love the fact that he wants to help you heal your body, not just mask the symptoms with another drug! I filled out my application to become a patient last night. They will be running an event on the 31st for a discount on the initial consultation, so I will take advantage of that. For the first time in a long time, I am hopeful. I am still bouncing around up a pound , down a pound...the other day, was down to 128.4, lowest in years, next day, it was up 2 pounds! At this rate, will never see the 1st goal of 5 pounds...starting my 4th week now...Fingers crossed that I get accepted!

I am sure that is good advice, however I would hot have a clue how to "investigate" it. All I can go by is his credentials list on the website...

Eve: you need to do your research. First you need to figure out what regulations govern naturopaths in your state and what licenses they require. Some states require nothing, and there are very few consumer protections. So it would be good to find out what licensing, certifications and training the clinic you are considering holds and then do your research into each organization and find out how legit they are. Also ask for referrals from the clinic and request and clinic tour so you can meet the doctor and staff.

It's funny, I always worry about the cost, when it comes to me, especially since I take so many supplements,but I have been not well for so long now, it is time to invest some in myself...when my soul mate kitty, "Mickey" got lymphoma, we spent $$$$ dollars trying to save him to no avail, but I would do it again in a heartbeat...Time to see if something alternative will help me, now to convince DH....

Eve, You are not crazy. Don't know if this is the answer. I would expect the doctor to give an honest assessment of whether or not you can be supported by their clinic.

I remember the first time I visited a particular chiropractor that he would not adjust me until I got a neurological clearance. I don't remember what the particular issue was that concerned him. But, he would not touch me until I provided the neurological clearance from my MD.

I have received support from various alternative health providers over the years ...

nutritionists
chiropractors
homeopaths

I have also utilized therapies such as massage, essential oils, flower essences, herbs, and nutritional supplements. Relaxation and mindfulness practices have also supported me. I have also benefited from the skilled services of a cognitive behavioral therapist.

My husband has had assistance from an acupuncturist.

This is just "pondering" in print... emoticon We have a place here called "The Natural Health Clinic". It is run by a Naturopathic Doctor who is also a clinical nutritionist & also has a
clinic in Houston. I was reading some of the case histories today & it would seem that a lot of people with various issues have been helped. Since I have not been able to get any help from regular MD's, I am thinking of going there...being alternative care, it is not covered by insurance.It is not cheap, but they do offer a money back guarantee ( with stipulations). I would hate to throw away that much money, but I am so desperate to get well, that I have to try something besides suffer till I die...Am I crazy or might this be the answer? That is the question.
