“I have been working with Dr. Dae and her team since April. She came into my workplace and did a session on some of the health challenges that women experience. So, my ears perked up. She spoke about hot flashes and how we have hormonal changes. And those were some of the issues I was facing. That, coupled with the fact that I had some weight gain for a period of time, I thought it was a good time to come in and talk to her.
I saw my general practitioner and they wanted to prescribe something to balance my hormones, but I wasn't interested. I wanted to try something more natural. And then Dr. Dae just came into my life and walked me through what I could do and helped me understand what the triggers were for my hot flashes. That's been really helpful. I think what was so powerful when I joined the team was the educational component. Dr. Dae was able to take some of the complex subjects and break them down into little bite size pieces, so that I understood how my body was reacting to different foods I ate or things that I was doing. And that was key for me. The other thing I really appreciated was the individual attention. Dr. Dae met me where I was. Sometimes, programs are ‘one size fit all’. Here's your schedule, here's what you need to do. And it wasn't like that. It was really geared towards ‘what are your goals’and ‘let's figure out what kinds of things/foods your body reacts to’. She really listened to what was going with me, and then shifted depending on what I needed in order to be successful. Also, the staff is amazing. I have been surprised at just the level of attention. There's no question that I can't ask that won't be answered.
Since working with Dr. Dae, I have more energy and more clarity. I'm sleeping well through the night and I have seen a decrease in the severity and frequency of my hot flashes. So, I'm very pleased with the improvements.
All in all, you can't put a price tag on your health and feeling good. So, if you're considering making an investment in something like this, I would say do it. So often are we making investments in other things and we don't take the time to invest in our health. For me, I didn't want to have to rely on medications or rely on a doctor telling me what I can and cannot do with respect to some kind of diagnosis. I've been very pleased with where I am and the progress that I'm making.”
