Gluten free is for me!! For the past few years, I had been suffering from several health issues that went undiagnosed and unresolved by regular doctors. These included sinus problems, severe allergies, hormone imbalance, irregular menstrual bleeding, severe anxiety, depression, mood swings, insomnia, dizziness, adrenal fatigue, ringing in the ears and even vertigo. My regular doctor recommended anti-depressants and scheduled me for a partial hysterectomy. Scared of all these things, I went to Dr. Trockels for help and a more gentle & natural approach to healing. Dr. Trockels spent 3 hours with me, going over my medical history and symptoms. I’ve never had a doctor spend that much time with me in my life. She asked me if I’d be willing to change my diet and I said “No way! It’s not my diet that is the problem and I could never give up dairy and gluten.” I had spent my life eating mostly pasta, breads, pizza, cakes, cookies and ice cream. Because I was not overweight, I thought my diet was fine. But no…it definitely was not fine. It was causing me illness that would not go away. A few weeks later, I became desperate to get well. I could no longer sleep and my panic attacks became debilitating. My dizziness was scary and I knew something needed to change. I remembered what Dr. Trockels said about taking wheat (gluten) and dairy out of my diet and figured it would be worth a try. But how could I stop eating all the things I loved? One day at a time is how I did it. And I became well, one day at a time. The first few days off gluten and dairy, I started to notice my anxiety subsiding. Within 4 days, I got the first normal menstrual period I have had in 3 years. My dizziness started to subside and my sinuses started to clear up. Oh my gosh…I was on to something. So I kept going and I started sleeping again…this is amazing! I have been gluten and dairy free for 3 months now and I’m a changed person. My health and energy have returned. No longer am I in panic mode, I am living and feel very blessed to have canceled my surgery. No meds for me, I’m just gluten and dairy free! I have found many ways to enjoy eating in the past few months and learned to cook for health. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. I never want to go back to eating and feeling like junk. Thank you Dr. Trockels for your guidance and for helping me get back to health with this new lifestyle. Sincerely, JoAnn S. Age 48 and feeling great!
I felt welcomed and important the moment I walked in. The time Dr. Trockels spent with me was invaluable. She never once acted rushed or impatient with my questions. Her knowledge and advice was so helpful. I'm looking forward to her guidance as I try to get my health issues under control. What a blessing!
So informative, caring and patient with my 8 year old and me. Can't begin to express my gratitude for explaining which vitamin/minerals my lil one needs and why for her specific GI issues. We left excited and with hope.. Which we had lost. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and finding the most reasonable way to get the extensive panel labs done.
Dr. Trockels truly cares about her patients. Her knowledge and experience is an asset to the Sacramento area and I have come to rely on her skill set on my individual path to wellness and disease prevention!!
