I am not exaggerating when I say that I have never been in such despair or confusion about my health. During the initial consultation, I felt a sense of relief wash over me because Dr. Ostroff was able to cut through the confusion, and explained that getting my hormones in balance was not just about treating symptoms, and it certainly was not a quick fix. She set out a goal to get my entire mind, body, and spirit back into balance, and when that happens, the hormones should also be in balance. This not only made sense to me, but it demonstrated a sense of caring on her part to help bring me to optimal health. The simplicity of it is simply elegant. In addition, she detected a viral infection that we had to work on first. I have quit smoking and drinking coffee. I have lost some weight, which was unintentional, but a welcomed change. I can now see how my past diet and habits led me to a point where i could just not maintain my health and menopause, they say, is the mother of all wake up calls. I am at the point where I do feel much more balanced, have some energy and want to start an exercise program that will add even more energy and tone to the body. In less than two months, my hot flashes are much milder and less frequent, to the point where I can finally function during the day. The dizziness is gone and I can drive and go out with confidence. My sleep has improved. I feel so much better and believe that I have only just begun. My experience with Dr. Ostroff has been life changing, and I am now looking forward to the rest of my life knowing that the best is yet to come.
I don't know what else I can do for you - we've tried every medication there is for high blood pressure. This was the pronouncement of my medical doctor a few months ago. I was being treated for hypertension, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, arthritis, asthma, allergies and other maladies. I came to Dr. Ostroff in a brain fog of prescription drugs and pain. I had little energy, sleep deprivation and a very busy schedule which contributed to my elevated blood pressure. After only 2 months of treatment I am much more energetic, having more restful sleep, reducing the prescription medications and my blood pressure is beginning to go down. Dr. Ostroff's expertise and knowledge of correct supplements and herbal prescriptions has started a healing process in my body and I have a greater feeling of well-being than i've had for a long time. I really appreciate Dr. Ostroff's positive, caring attitude toward physical and emotional needs to promote healing.
I moved to Hawaii from an entire life of east coast living. Upon arrival my sleep cycle was seriously disturbed. I could not sleep during the night, during the day – anytime. I was exhausted and I could not sleep. This went on for two weeks and then I found Dr. Ostroff. Within one week I was sleeping 6 hours per night. After 2 weeks I was back to sleeping 8 hours. Then after 3 weeks, I was sleeping 8 RESTFUL hours and feeling much more energized. It even only took me 2 days to paint the entire inside of our new house! I am so thankful for her. Without this I would have continued to struggle to the adjustment, I would not have had energy to go on job interviews or spend time with my husband. Beyond this, she has kept me from getting colds, she has balanced my diet and helped with my terrible knee pain. I can say honestly: SHE DOES IT ALL!
