I have seen Dr. Skolnikoff for 5 visits between January 1st 2014 and June 25th 2014. I used to weigh 175 pounds at the beginning of treatment and now I weigh only 160 pounds. I used to have a lot of pain in the region of my kidneys when I first started seeing Dr. Skolnikoff and now that pain is gone. I was very weak before and now I have a lot more energy. I had anemia and was exhausted all of the time due to the anemia. I learned that many of my symptoms such as night sweats and hot flashes and excess belly fat, morning headaches and getting angry all of the time were due to Thyroid dysfunction. I still have headaches, but they come only once a month with my period instead of every morning. I am being completely honest that I was having headaches every single morning and it was terrible. I was very emotional due to the loss of my sister. I was crying all of the time. I cry only very seldom now. Dr. Skolnikoff shared with me specific lifestyle changes that were unique to any other health care provider I had ever met. During just the first visit or two he referred me out to an optometrist to get a new pair of glasses and also suggested that I get fitted for a bra without an underwire. I have done both of these things and it has made all of the difference in improving my health. Because I am a large breasted woman, this really made a big difference for me and was very important. I was able to get a great bra at Lane Bryant.
