I came to see Dr. Bieley after suffering from menopausal-related anxiety and general sleeplessness for 7 years. During those 7 years, I sought out various specialists, including my general practitioner and 3-4 different OB-GYN’s. I was given various RX’s over those years and ended up on clonazepam to ease the anxiety. That was the best they could do. I read with interest all of Suzanne Somer’s books, especially those on hormone imbalance. I subscribed to websites for women suffering from my same “disease”. I decided that if I wanted to cure myself, I needed to be pro-active. And I found Dr. Bieley.
After an initial appointment, Dr. Bieley ordered various urine, saliva and blood testing. He immediately recommended some supplements for me to take and books for me to read. After all of the testing came back, we met a second time. At this appointment I received a supplement and certain lifestyle change recommendations. It appeared that one of my main problems was cortisol-related. After reading a book about adrenal gland function, I realized that most medical doctors are not trained in cortisol-related symptoms unless severe; many general problems related to sleeplessness, weight gain and anxiety never get resolved at a traditionally-trained doctor’s office.
In approximately 3 months, I was sleeping through the night and my anxiety had all but disappeared! While I knew that menopausal hormone balance existed, I frankly couldn’t believe that supplements and some minor lifestyle changes could change my entire outlook on life. But they have, and I am living testimony of this.
Thank you Dr. Bieley, you have changed my life
