Sometime near the end of 2010/beginning of 2011, I wrote my first testimonial about my early experiences with Dr. Ryan Weitman, NMD. I first started working with him as my trainer during the late summer of 2009. Prior to that time I had never had contact with an NMD and really wondered about their methods of treating patients. Boy was I wrong. In January of 2010 I became one of Dr. Weitman’s patients. That was the beginning of my changing my life as he got me started on a healthier diet. Dr. Weitman introduced me to the concept that Naturopaths treat the total body, not just current aches or pains. As time went by he also pinpointed causes of some of my maladies that my regular MDs had missed. Because of his observations, I was also alerted to health issues that needed attention. I continue to work with both Dr. Weitman and my regular PCP. My main regret is that Medicare and my health insurance company do not accept NMDs on the same level as DOs and MDs and thus do not cover my visits.
There are not enough words that I can use to describe how much my Naturopath has helped me improve my life. Were it not for his help, I probably would have given up on life in one way or another. When I met him, my pain was such that I did not want to live. I probably would still be around, but would be some old, crippled person. Yes, I once doubted the works of Naturopaths, but I since became an absolute believer in what they do. I have referred several people to Dr. Weitman, and will continue to do so. GH – 73 years
