Charlanne B. - Natural Horizons patient
My name is Charlanne Brew, and I came to Natural Horizons Wellness Center because I was diagnosed with adrenal exhaustion. And is I had gone to any other doctor, they probably would have given me Prozac and told me to go have a happy life. But the doctors that I came to see here really did an in-depth, not only blood tests and saliva tests and all the tests a regular doctor would do, but they talked to me and they asked me questions that no doctor has ever asked me before, like for example, when you wake up in the morning, do you have sleepy in your eyes? Or, are you dreaming? You know, that kind of thing. And really got to know me and listened to me. And then designed a wellness program for me that really pretty much started working right a way.
They - just all the recommendations that they made were -- I can't even tell you how helpful they were. It's kind of hard to explain how helpful they were because I wasn't sleeping, I was - I didn't want to go anywhere, do anything, so for all superficial observations, you might have said that I was depressed, but really what it was, was I was just plain burned out.
So I just started a new diet and on the recommendation of the doctors here, and supplements and within a few months, I started sleeping all night for the first time in a couple of years without waking up. That was a big -a big deal. It was so big that I called them and said, “Oh my gosh! I slept all night!” You know. It was kind of exciting. And I lost weight just without really doing anything. And then little by little they would get me back into my regular exercise routine and things like that, but I'm still following the same - some of the same recommendations that I did then and that was almost four years ago.
Everything is, don't stress. They don't want any of their patients distressed. It's not just me; it's everybody that walks in the door. Very caring, it's a busy place so I can't really say it's low-key, but it's not stressful and you're never rushed from pillar to post, and you don't wait. That's another thing. The doctors are anti-doctors. They don't keep you waiting so you're not sitting out in that waiting room for 30 minutes or 45 minutes. They're very aware - you know, they know your schedules. The know you, which is kind of the neat and wonderful thing about Natural Horizons Wellness Center is that - I think if I had to sum it up, I would just say, that's exactly it. They know you as the individual. You're not the person that they've just checked off the box. It's more than that; it's deeper than that and better. I'm getting good treatment I trust and I feel comfortable. And if I could see somebody else have that same kind of treatment, comfort and care, I'd definitely recommend Natural Horizons.
