Powerful Patient Testimonial

testimonial picture“Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share feedback on my experience with Innovative Directions in Health and more specifically, Dr. Sinda.

Bottom line in my experience with Dr. Sinda – he has been able to help me accomplish more with my health in the past 6 months than any other physician has been able to do for me in the past 7 years.

I was always diligent in making sure my annual exams every fall were completed. Every year I would explain how I was tired, not able to lose weight (even though I was exercising 4-5 days a week), and was waking every 2 hours each night, and all those other things that come along with my age. My physician would spend her 10 minutes with me and ask me the same questions as the previous year (even though I had been going to her for many years) and then tell me the same thing “you just need to accept it” and “there is not much you can do – just work out more!” I even went to an Endocrinologist and had additional testing done because they were convinced that I had a thyroid problem – nope wrong again!

Quite honestly – I was tired of hearing the same response and decided I needed to be assertive and challenge what they told me. So, I pulled out the last Suzanne Sommer’s book and starting reading – then got to the section of recommended facilities and noticed there was one in Minnesota! Yeah!

Fast forward to January, I scheduled the appointment with Dr. Sinda where we went through a very thorough discussion on my health, history of my family’s health and discussed the Innovative Directions in Health’s process. Being very impressed with the level of attention to me and my symptoms, I decided to move forward with the process.

My lab tests showed that my progesterone was extremely low, my estrogen was low, and most surprising was that I was Vitamin D deficient. Based on the all the results, Dr. Sinda was able to personalize my treatment plan with natural replacements. After 4 months of using his recommended approach, here are the positive changes that I have seen:

  1. Not tired anymore!
  2. Losing about ½ pound a week and have more energy to work out – working out 5 to 6 times a week.
  3. No more feelings of being bloated.
  4. Actually getting sleep – only wake up once a night.
  5. Found a physician that actually listens and gets to know me as a person!

The current results have been wonderful, but the even more amazing story is that the changes that I have seen from my experience is creating a more long term impact on my health. I work for a large healthcare company and for the past 5 years we get incented with lower healthcare premiums based on “passing” certain biometric screening tests. This is the first year that I have been able to “exceed” these metrics – BMI, Blood Sugar, Cholesterol and also the Blood Pressure measure. No more being a “Pre-Diabetic” or “High Blood Pressure” patient!

Making the decision to work with IDH has been one of my best health decisions – after all we are in a “consumer directed health environment” and this is proof about how taking responsibility for our own health can be rewarding.

Thanks Dr. Sinda for listening and making an impact on my current and future health. Don’t change anything with your approach, just try and reach more people!” Cheryl F.

We would love to reach out to help more people.
