After seeing countless doctors and natural health practitioners over a period of 40 years for chronic digestive issues and migraine headaches, I discovered, through word of mouth, something called the Methylation Pathway and two specific MTHFR gene variants. On the basis of many hours of my own research I decided that my DNA was the most obvious place to start in order to cure myself of this family migraine “curse”. I saw a couple of practitioners who purportedly “knew about” MTHFR, but who didn’t have the depth of knowledge and expertise required to address my issues. In fact, I knew more than they did! When finally my path led me to Carolyn Ledowsky, I felt as though I was suddenly breathing fresh air.!
As well as being a very talented naturopath, she is also an excellent listener. She believes deeply in the value of taking a full family history, along with comprehensive lab tests, and careful questioning. She is warm, approachable, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable, and can be firm when she needs to be! I have ceased researching now and instead, put myself in her hands for 18 months and I have never stopped having confidence in her approach.
The MTHFR program has changed my life from one of limitation, deprivation and despair, to a gradually increasing sense of new energy, clearer thinking, less fatigue and brain fog, and – miracle of miracles – no more migraines after 57 years of suffering! The answers lay in my DNA report, and careful management of diet and supplementation have supported my body and mind back to health. Without Carolyn’s care, I would still be languishing in bed for three to four days at a time, in pain, miserable and afraid to live my life. I am singing again, and have more energy for the things I like to do. I was able to drive over 1500 kilometres last Christmas to visit my family, something I would not have even contemplated doing two years ago.
I recommend MTHFR Support Australia, Carolyn and her co-practitioners and assistants without reservation, and would be happy to speak in person to anyone who is thinking of making the journey back to health and well-being at her very professional and well-organised clinic in Neutral Bay.
