For years, I struggled with anxiety, depression, positional vertigo, headaches, trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, nausea, memory problems, confusion, high blood pressure, exhaustion, a heart arrhythmia that caused lightheadedness, shortness of breath, and spells of near-passing out, plus complications from my monthly cycle that were so severe I was unable to leave the house for days at a time. Tests showed nothing “significant” and medications either didn’t work or caused awful side effects. Doctors said things like: "You’re a mystery…” and “I really wish I could help you, but…”
When I heard about Dr. Onyiah’s approach to wellness, I was cautiously optimistic that there might be a way out there for me to get better. At our first meeting, Dr. Onyiah took great care in gathering a thorough history and then explained that some imbalances in my system could be causing the problems I was having. She seemed confident that I could start feeling better!
The past six months on Dr. Onyiah’s plan have required discipline, patience, and a lot of hard work. I’ve learned so much about my body—its strengths, its challenges, what it needs, and the best ways to meet those needs. All along the way, Dr. Onyiah has been easily accessible to answer questions and provide support. It feels absolutely surreal to be able to say this, but ALL of my symptoms have resolved! I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to benefit from her tremendous knowledge and thorough, empathic care.
A couple of years ago I started having what seemed to be several unrelated health issues pop up in my life – issues with my stomach, joints & vision. I went to several different doctors trying to get answers, but I felt unheard, rushed & misunderstood.
I later discovered a lump on my thyroid. Once again I went to several doctors trying to get help. Tests determined the lump was not cancerous, yet everybody had a different recommendation. That was when Dr. Onyiah started caring from me. Dr. Onyiah’s degree in chemistry and her functional medicine certification, helps her understand how the body works on the most basic level. She helped put the pieces together regarding all of the previously mentioned health issues.
When I talk to her about symptoms potentially having connections, she doesn’t look at me like I’m a crazy person. She listens, asks great questions, and gets a whole health & life context before suggesting solutions. Because of Dr. Comfort, I finally feel heard, understood & cared for.
