Matthews >Carolinas Natural Health Center
I am a medical doctor practicing family medicine. I would love to have alternatives to mainstream medicine for many reasons. In my field, we maintain chronic diseases that could be fixed with homeopathic medicines. I will give an example in the next paragraph relating to my daughter, but also conditions like GERD, inflammatory conditions, and many more can be cured. Treatments in my field often cause secondary problems, such as GERD medicines like Prilosec OTC. They commonly cause vitamin deficiencies, upper and lower respiratory infections, and can lead to osteoporosis. Statins, like Lipitor,a very popular cholesterol lowering medicine, can cause testosterone deficiency, memory loss, and now has been found to increase risk of diabetes. We often have to treat the side effect of the chronic medicines we give like giving ulcer meds while giving steroids to prevent bleeding ulcers. We are pushed to see patients every 15 minutes which precludes education on dietary changes or alternative treatments that would reduce the need for prescription medicines. There is a snow ball effect and increases the cost of health care. I can seriously give many more examples.
My daughter Sofia was given the possible diagnosis of an incurable autoimmune disease by her pediatrician. She is an excellent physician and she let us know that as symptoms continue to confirm the diagnosis, she would send us to a rheumatologist and would likely need a lifetime of steroids. Well, those lifetime of steroids will cause obesity, osteoporosis, ulcers, depression, and adrenal gland failure. Therefore, we promptly saw Dr. Michael Smith of Carolinas Natural Health and we are watching her get better. It is amazing to me. Sofia was also referred to an ENT due to effusions in her ears and the specialist was going to place tubes. Dr. Smith told me to stop giving her dairy and within a week, her effusions and eczema cleared up. My oldest child was suffering from worsening snoring and bad breath issues, likely leading to needing a tonsillectomy. Again, Dr. Smith instructed me to stop dairy and within a week, her breath returned to normal and she stopped snoring. He saved both of my daughters from unnecessary surgeries that occur regularly due to the lack of nutritional education of MD’s.
No More Acid Reflux Medication!.
No more Acid Reflux and no more daily medications! I am incredibly grateful for Dr. Mike Smith’s knowledge and ability! Over and over, I was told by doctors that I would have to be on a proton pump inhibitor for life (and I’m only 39)…while my body slowly but surely slowed down its ability to digest nutrients. My iron stores fell near 0! When I came to Dr. Smith, I was determined and desperate to get off of the drugs! Dr. Smith listened, had my blood work run and began to help me digest food again without heartburn. (My reflux was so bad at times that it had sent me to the ER twice…once in an ambulance thinking I was having a cardiac arrest.) The first 2 weeks were tough…but Dr. Smith said I could call anytime I needed to (which was often.) He helped me with supplements to keep me as comfortable as possible in the beginning and then to rebuild my body’s ability to digest well. It’s been 5 months now, and last week, I ate chili for first time in 10 years…with no reflux and no medication! This year, I plan to have Dr. Smith help me get back to my optimal weight.
Dr. Smith is also going to begin seeing my son who has Asperger’s Syndrome. I am sold on the natural route to health! I unequivocally recommend Dr. Smith and his staff to anyone!
when you have the best, what more is there?.
i was very sick, no energy, sleeping all day and all night. Finally crawled in to see Dr. Smith. He found I had E coli. Did what he recommended and within a month, I was in tip top shape. Then we went to work on another problem that was not as pressing. Am presently working with his recommendations. He knows what he is doing.
Don't Buy Juice Plus From Them. They sold me on trying Juice Plus. The only way they would sell it is through a "courtesy ship" program where they automatically ship every 4 months and charge my credit card each month. They promised to call before making each shipment--they did not call and the shipments started coming before I was out. Now I have bottles of product and ongoing charges to my credit card. Buy from Ebay--they are cheaper and will ship as you need the items.
