Naturopathic & Functional Medicine Testimonials
For over a decade, I have struggled with major gut, brain, and physical endurance issues associated with my celiac disease. In December 2013, my wife suggested I make an appointment with Betsy Burris. By that time I had become weary of reading books, seeking the help of people, and had accepted that this was just the way it was going to be for me the rest of my life. It is with the most sincere appreciation and gratitude that I write this letter in April 2014. I still cannot believe the improvements my entire body has made in just a short amount of time. I do not remember feeling this good.

In August of 2013, I was emotionally sick, bedridden, and well on my way to a long hospital stay. A friend and health practitioner recommended I go see Betsy to try to get to the bottom of my ongoing thyroid issues and overall hormonal imbalance. I had been from conventional to naturopathic doctors and had received what I thought was good care. That is until my mother called Betsy in desperation for help, and she so graciously saw me the very next day. Upon arriving at Betsy’s office I was handled with kindness and care, and she sat with me and through my tears gave me a thorough exam and took an extensive history. She spent time with me, in my darkest moments, and for that I can never repay her. I left that day with hope and restoration felt possible. I left with a plan.
Fast forward to April 2014, I am still a work in progress, but I am a fully functional, emotionally healthy person. I am on a much lower dose of a prescription medication, and am completely off of antidepressants. I am much more aware of what’s happening in my body, and am finally becoming hormonally balanced for the first time in my life. We are still working on my thyroid, but I no longer suffer from the extensive highs and lows. I am happier than I have ever been, and part of me knows it’s because Betsy and Dr. Bogdon are by my side. They have my back and are interested in my feedback as well as test results. I now know what integrative medicine is. It’s exactly what I have received every time I grace the doors, or get a friendly phone call to check on me from 2BWell. I know I’m not alone, and that someone cares. I know I will be well. And, I know it’s right around the corner.
