Functional Medicine for Hypothyroidism
“When we first met Dr. Goodbinder, Ethan (our son), was still having about a level 5 pain in his head. He had pain in his leg which was constant. He was walking but it was still there, he was on some pretty good doses of medicine. But, he was moving in the right direction it just wasn’t getting us where we needed to be. Of course, he was still feeling a whole lot of pain.
At that time, when we met Dr. Goodbinder, he was only going to school half a day or only part of the day. What was most interesting is he said that he wanted to take more of a holistic approach. At first, I was hesitant. I told myself, we’ve been own this vitamin regimen road before, we’ve tried this holistic approach, and we decided to give it another shot. But, going into it, I had a lot of reservations because we had been there and done that before and it did not work.
Well, the protocol that Dr. Goodbinder put Ethan on and the dedication he gave to Ethan really paid off. Within about 5 or 6 months Ethan was ultimately pain-free and he had never been pain-free for almost two and a half to three years. So that makes me feel really good and emotional because we moved from a child who was completely incapacitated going through so many therapies and medicines and changed him to a child who could finally go back to school.
It was amazing because Dr. Goodbinder listened to what Ethan was doing. At 12, it’s very difficult to work with such a young child who has been told since day one that he may never get better and that the pain may never ever go away. After about 6 months we still continue to come to Dr. Goodbinder. We believe in his practice, we believe in his protocol, and we believe in what he has to offer for Ethan. For a child who is now pain-free and has been pain-free for almost a year after this regiment.
Ethan is back to playing sports, he’s now on the basketball team. He’s also active in school doing very well with his academics and he is working out every day thanks to the help of Dr. Goodbinder. He’s my boy again thanks to the Epigenetics Healing Center.”
