“Where do I begin? Oh, yeah, right here! I saw Dr. Ross for the first time 23 years ago. For my condition, he advised a lot of things including testing for my thyroid, testing for food and chemical sensitivities and strict dietary changes like becoming a vegan and eating only gluten-free food. I didn’t do any testing and I tried the diet but never followed through. It’s hard when you lead a conventional life with conventional people who eat anything. Besides, all those friends were doing fine. Now, all these years and surgeries and continued recurrent infections all over the place and skin issues and blood pressure medication, and all those conventional friends now in their 40’s and they’re not looking or feeling so good anymore either, I’m ready to commit to my health.
My primary care doctor is wringing her hands, not knowing what to do with me anymore so she agreed to approve whatever lab testing Dr. Ross suggested. So now, his hunch about my low thyroid has proven to be true, among other things. I’m on the diet he advised for me 23 years ago. Kathleen gave me a lot of vegan and gluten-free snack ideas and that’s helping me keep on track. I love everything she told me to make, and now I’m getting inspired to try more recipes.
I still have to do the right test for food sensitivities, but I know I’m moving in the right direction now.
Changing your life, even for the better, is a tough decision until you make the choice for your future.”
