Before working with Marc Ryan at Green Health Acupuncture, I had numerous health problems that seemed unrelated. I previously sought the assistance of a dermatologist, an endocrinologist, a neurologist and a hand surgeon, among other doctors. My most pressing health issue was carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. I even resorted to surgery on one hand, with unsatisfactory results. After consulting with an endocrinologist, I was informed that I had hypothyroidism and was told I could take medication to combat the condition, for the rest of my life.
I was referred to Marc by a colleague at work who had amazing results after working with him. While working with Marc I learned that my hypothyroidism was an autoimmune condition known as Hashimoto’s and that it could be managed with dietary changes and supplements. All of the seemingly unrelated chronic conditions I suffered from were actually quite connected and directly related to my underactive thyroid.
After working with Marc I was able to properly manage my thyroid condition and as a result, my carpal tunnel syndrome, without drugs or surgery. After eliminating gluten and dairy from my diet, and taking certain recommended supplements, I virtually eliminated the pain in my hands, as well as numerous other health problems that had plagued me for years. I no longer rely upon caffeine and sugar to get me through the day. I now enjoy activities that I had written off such as tennis and gardening.
