“Before I met Dr. Geeta Arora I had a daily nagging feeling that I should be taking better care of myself. Though I exercise regularly, my primary care physician (and my mirror!) told me that I needed to lose 10-15 pounds. I was prone to headaches and my levels of energy and mental acuity seemed to vary greatly throughout the day. I gave little consideration to what foods I ate and I found the idea of taking a daily multi-vitamin to be too much of a hassle. Sound familiar?
My laissez faire attitude toward my health came to a crashing halt when I fainted at a friend’s BBQ. I know what you’re thinking, “He must have been hammered!” The scary truth is that I had consumed only a single can of light beer that day. That fainting spell triggered a trip to the emergency room, an MRI of my brain, a CAT scan, and the removal of 11 vials of blood to determine what might have caused this to happen.
Right around this time, I had been introduced to Dr. Arora through some friends. Dr. Arora reviewed all of my test results and identified a number of anomalies in my blood work that lead to a diagnosis of a gene mutation that affects how my body absorbs key nutrients. Apparently I have been living with this condition my entire life and it has gone undetected by at least a dozen doctors who have treated me since childhood.
Like all members of my family, I am prone to hypochondria and worry so when I received the diagnosis I assumed the worst. Fortunately Dr. Arora was on the case. She took the time needed to explain my diagnosis in simple terms and answered all of my questions. Together we worked up a personalized plan that was relatively easy to incorporate into my busy life. After three months on Dr. Arora’s plan I feel a LOT better. I have not fainted again (phew!) or had a migraine headache in 60+ days. I have more energy all the time. I go to sleep within a few minutes of my head hitting the pillow and I wake up feeling refreshed. My ability to focus is improved and I am just a happier person overall.
I had no idea that I could feel this good with just a few simple changes and some vitamins. It sounds weird to say it, but I am glad that I fainted at that party. If I hadn’t, I doubt that I would have ever made the changes necessary to feel this good.
Thank you Dr. Arora!”
