I walked into Dr. Karlin’s office almost three years ago and was living a life filled with anxiety and angst. I distinctly remember her telling me, as I described my anxiety level a 7 out of 10 that someday it would be zero. At that time, I had accepted that anxiety was very much a part of me. I was actively seeking ways to avoid medication to control it and turned towards Naturopathic medicine.
Our early appointments were filled with addressing physical aliments that had gone unaddressed after I had my children. She spent nearly 90 minutes with me asking questions and learning about my history and lifestyle. She ordered a complete blood panel work up and we met again a few weeks later to come up with a wellness plan. Over time, I have followed her plan and lifestyle recommendations and have been amazed at the changes I have experienced not only in my health and mental well being but in the way I now approach life.
Along the way, she has prescribed supplements and homeopathic remedies along with other types of treatment like hypnotherapy and reiki healing to supplement the healing process. At my follow up appointment the other day, I answered a solid “zero” when she asked what my level of anxiety was. We both looked at each other with huge smiles on our faces and thought about the journey to get to this number.
Being Dr. Karlin’s patient has had such a positive impact on my life, I even bring my two children in to see her and have referred friends and family. I am truly grateful for finding Dr. Karlin and Well Being Medical Center.
