I reached out to Dr. Doni when regular routes of health care were no longer working. Initially I was suffering from terrible stomach pains and my doctor had suggested I try anti-depressants to alleviate the pain, a route I did not wish to take. A friend had suggested a naturopathic doctor, and after asking around I found Dr. Doni.
Initially, my main concern was regarding the stomach problems. Dr. Doni identified a number of allergies and corrected the issue along with supplements to bring balance back into my body.
A few years later when I was suffering from hormonal imbalances and mood fluctuation, another health issue my regular MDs had given up on, Dr. Doni was able to pinpoint the problem and show me how to bring my body back into balance – without the use of medications that in the past had only acerbated the issues.
I love that it she uses a holistic approach. Dr. Doni looks at all areas of the body, including nutrition as the basis of all health. Bedside manner is everything, and she is a gentle and kind practitioner who understands that there is health, and there is life. If we can find balance in our body we can find balance between these two aspects of ourselves, too.
Looking back on what Dr. Doni has helped me with, for one, my body and my moods are far more balanced now. I no longer need pharmaceutical drugs to be healthy. As a matter of fact, I am now healthier without them.
Secondly, I have learned (and perhaps this is most important) to be more aware of myself and my body and what it is telling me. For example, I am now aware when I'm low on fuel (food) because my health or my mood reverts to a less-than-optimal state.
Finally, I'm a healthier individual. I am learning to rely on healthy food and activity. Not because I know it's important to my health (I always knew that!), but because I know how good I feel when I do.
All in all, can I say that working with you saved my marriage? That maybe it saved me? Perhaps it even helped me get (and stay) pregnant when my friends were stressed and imbalanced and struggled to do so. It sounds amazing but it is all true!!!!
Since finding Dr. Doni I've made many changes in my life and have continually searched for ways to better health and balance. She's been an inspiration and the first person I contact when I have a health concern.
