Practitioner

"The hair mineral analysis has been the most important testing tool in my naturopathic practice for a couple of years. I had already figured out that it is sometimes best not to do "what the lab says“ and also not to do what some other authorities on the HTMA say as well. By following a few of Dr. Smith’s interviews/articles, I knew that we were generally on the same page and I wanted to see what he had made of the HTMA concept. Long story short: I am so glad I signed up for his HTMA webinar class. I learned so incredibly much and I have been having immediate, even dramatic results with myself and I am sure clients will follow very soon. His findings are really unique. What I really appreciate about Dr. Smith is that he never stops learning, researching and revising his own concept to make his treatment better. I will definitely sign up for further classes!”

Energy & Fertility

"I started on Dr. Smith's program because a friend recommended him. I was suffering with constipation and low energy. After only 6 months on the program my energy had improved greatly and I was more regular than I had been in 2 years. My hair was thicker, my skin had improved, and I was surprised to find that I was pregnant! I had struggled getting pregnant in the past and this one was a complete surprise! Dr. Smith is very knowledgeable and as a medical professional the reasons behind his treatment are fascinating. He uses up to date research and really has a passion for what he does. He's very patient and willing to work with you when problems arise with your treatment. I believe he is truly helping people to improve their health by getting to the root of the problem instead of treating symptoms with a prescription pad."

Joints

“BTW, my joints feel much better. I haven't started protocol yet with the specific supplements (waiting for them), but ditched past weeks vitamin D supp, made food based adjustments and results are showing :)”

Weight Loss

"You do not know how happy I am today putting all these pieces together. Since I started your program I've felt better the past 2 weeks I have in years. I've lost 9 lbs even though I'm eating (eating a lot actually, I've been getting all my potassium in from fruits and veggies). I feel like my body may actually be starting to function correctly and I may have a chance to beat this (especially if I can get these pesky infections under control)! ♥ I've been going to naturopathic doctors for 8 years now, and while they've helped me immensely, I've been treating my "adrenals" for 8 years and my cortisol levels have barely increased the tiniest amount IN 8 YEARS!"

Brain Fog

"While on Dr. Smith's program, I experienced freedom from the brain fog that I've had for nearly all my life (and I'm in my 60's). And as to saying "nearly all my life' I actually cannot remember ever NOT having brain fog. I was magnificent at memorizing and regurgitating, but was practically incapable of independent thought! Thanks Doc!"

IVF / Fertility

UPDATE 12/6/16: She is now pregnant. 🙂

"Hey Dr. Garrett, I have the most amazing news!!!!! So as you know I was about to start my 8th round of IVF when we talked. I was on magnesium lotion for about a month and then started everything else u recommended (except -------- and -------) about 2 weeks later. So I prob started all my supplements right about when I started my IVF stims. 2 weeks on supplements and counting...well anyway, we did the egg retrieval on Friday. We got 12 eggs, 10 were mature, and all 10 fertilized. We have NEVER HAD THAT HAPPEN! Usually IVF is like a funnel effect so u start with a lot and end with a little. Well, today our embryologist called and our embryos have. Even growing for 3 days and all 10 are still growing, again, NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE! Also, 6 are growing fast (never happened always have really slow growing embryos) and are already Morulas which is day 4. My first/only pregnancy with my 2 year old was with a morula embryo. And the other 4 are right on track at 6 cell/day 3. Everyone at the RE office is over the moon and so are we. Now, we still have to make it to day 5 or 6 blast, but the embryologist said that's looking like it's not going to be a problem. Then we have to biopsy them, send them off to be tested (PGD) to make sure they are normal. PGD tests for chromosomal abnormalities such as the trisomys. We have never done PGD, and basically our last ditch effort to find out what if any issues are with my embryos and why I'm not getting pregnant. So long story short, with your help and a new RE (bc our practice got bought out and we got new amazing doctors) I might finally have another baby!!!!!

Hope this email wasn't overwhelming! I gave all my Instagram followers your name so if any IVF/IUI/TTC people call you, it's bc of me and my raving about you on Instagram. Anyway, I'm over the moon and I literally could kiss u and if I get pregnant I'm 100% your poster child and will recommend u to everyone I know and don't know!"

Infertility

Prudence and I would like to “publicly” thank Dr. Garrett Smith for remedying our 2.5-year case of infertility. He’s done an amazing job at fixing the root of the issue. He continues to have this kind of success with countless other couples, and we’re super thankful for the extra support he gave us throughout the whole process.

Before getting on to Garrett, we had tried heavy progesterone therapy, coupled with charting, for quite some time (which has a 70% success rate). We also tried a couple of other natural remedies (wild yam cream, superfoods) but nothing seemed to work.

By a series of random events, I ended up buying a book written by Dr. Garrett Smith and Matt Stone called “Solving the Paleo Equation”. I was enthralled by what they had to say, laying down all the foundations of no-BS health. So I wrote an email to Garrett asking if he’d have anything for us to try with our infertility. He responded in the affirmative, saying that our infertility was most likely due to a nutrition problem.

So we both went ahead with Garrett’s recommendation, an assessment of our internal minerals through a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA). We then received from him a comprehensive mineral treatment program tailor-made for each of us, along with a 1-hour Skype consultation. After minerals, vitamins and whole-food supplements were ordered, we began replenishing our bodies from the ground up.

Six months in, and, thanks be to God, we conceived our first child! All of the multifaceted efforts paid off immensely (and our bodies are feeling constantly energised and de-stressed as a nice side-effect).

We absolutely recommend Dr. Garrett to anyone needing help in the area of fertility, or any area of health for that matter. It’s truly amazing what the body can do once it’s given what it needs.

...little Louis is certainly enjoying life.

Vitamin D

“I would read your articles prior to calling and becoming your patient. I was reading one day that taking vitamin D3 will raise calcium levels and decrease potassium next to nothing (causing fatigue). On two different occasions I spoke with two family members and told them this information due to both of them already taking Vitamin D3. They both stopped their Vitamin D3 and are having great results and do not feel fatigue like they were experiencing. The issue they were having is both of them felt like some days they could barely move and had very low energy.”

Sleep

“Since working with Dr. Smith my sleep has improved tremendously; from waking up multiple times during the night to nights of 8 hours of straight sleep. This improved my energy levels during the day. Also, I don’t need the midday naps that used to be absolutely necessary to get through the rest of my day properly. Another big thing for me is that I experience fewer brain fog moments.”

Anon

Sleep

“Hey Dr. G, Wanted to let you know my sleep has improved out of sight since starting the new iron overload protocol. I’m not even on the whole treatment yet (waiting for new supplements to arrive) but less muscle meat (and less dairy/grains, more veggies!) seems to be making a big difference. Tested it out by eating a lot more chicken meat at dinner yesterday, and had disrupted sleep with a 4am panic wake up. Can’t believe how good it feels to sleep properly! You’re a genius!”

Anon

Webinar Information

“I’m incredibly pleased to have taken Dr. Smith’s webinar series. Having come out of it with a huge volume of knowledge and information, I now feel equipped with the tools (and confidence) to accurately analyse a hair test and start helping people. It’s a pretty special opportunity to be able to have access to over a decade of research and Dr. Smith’s talent for condensing complex information into quickly apprehensible analogies made the process of learning enjoyable as well as easy. I feel his approach to HTMA is infinitely more logical, insightful and, therefore, more valuable than any other I have come across.”

Overall Improvements

“PROGRESS this week: More pain and more tired. Good signs since I am doing what you say. Got slightly looser stools today after getting up on the C drink. The smell was like a cleanse. So it's HAPPENING!
I feel more Happy!
Half as much post nasal drip.
Less eye pain.
Less swelling in legs.
Gums are no longer bleeding.
Not so much craving sweet foods”

Back Stiffness

"I wanted to tell you that I've been off of nightshades for only a week & I already feel better. I used to wake up every morning with a very stiff back. When I got up I hobbled around like a very old person. I can't believe how quickly it is working. I wondered if it was my mattress. Then after the x-rays I thought it had to do with that. I've had a lot of anxiety about my back problems. Now I can almost forget about them. That's how much better I feel. Thanks to you.

By the way, what do I do with all the tomatoes and peppers in my freezer? (lol)"

ED

"Hi Dr. Garrett, Wanted to give you feedback. I've been feeling a shift from your recommendations. Even before starting the [supplement that keeps iron in its ferrous and not ferric form] seeing a shift with the ED [erectile dysfunction]. Things are better but not perfect. Waking up with morning wood which is a good sign. Hoping it lasts and continues to improve. Thank you for your good work! I'll be referring clients to you."

Menopause

“In just six short months of following Dr. Smith’s treatment plan, I have experienced reversal of menopausal symptoms such vaginal atrophy!!!!

I am also experiencing deeper, undisturbed sleep, fewer aches and pains (i.e. recover more quickly from hot yoga) and reduced frequency and intensity of hot flashes.

Also, I have noticed in recent years an increase in “floaters” in my vision. Since beginning Dr. Smith’s treatment, these “floaters” are shrinking and becoming increasingly transparent.

Thank you, Dr. Smith!”

Rosacea

“It is just about two months from starting on the program you gave me. I had one "crisis" the first month and one this month. I woke up this morning after 7 days of exhaustion, shortness of breath, feeling like I was 90 years old and excruciating pain in the hips and shoulders.

But this morning it was just GONE! I didn't even try to address it while suffering. Like you said, I just kept on the program, slept more and rubbed in magnesium on it and it just PASSED ON... like a rainstorm eventually goes away. I am not "pain-free" but significantly better.

Not only that, but the rosacea on my face that I have had for years JUST ISN'T THERE! Gone in what seemed to be "overnight". That was startling. Thank you! Quite amazing!”

Kidney Stones

"I just wanted to send a quick note that I celebrated 1 year without passing any new kidney stones, as of yesterday! I have no idea if I still have additional stones hanging around or new ones forming, but this bodes well. I first started your program last March, about a month before the last stone I passed."

Eczema

“The hair test analysis has been the best investment in my health I have ever made, nothing else even comes close. At the time I signed up for my first hair test analysis, I had eczema all the way up my arm, thinning hair, receding gums, and food sensitives. I developed eczema and food sensitives for the first time at age 28. I tried both the Paleo diet and the Ray Peat diet and an endless number of supplements on my own without any success. Within 6 months of working with Dr. Smith, my eczema fully disappeared (and has not come back in the two years since). After a year of working with Dr. Smith, my gums appeared to stop receding, my hair started noticeably thinning less and my food sensitives greatly diminished. Lately I have noticed my mood, energy, and emotional resilience are at an all time high. I have had such amazing results.”

Weight & Joints

"When I started Doctor Smith's program, I had no energy, couldn't lose weight, and all my joints ached. I only went up or down the stairs once a day and felt 65. Now 9 months later, I have a lot of energy, my weight is slowly coming off, my joints don't ache, and I feel my age - 36."

Periods

Fertility

"I've been Dr. Smith's client since January of 2014, so my testimonial is long overdue! When I started with him I had been bopping around, following Internet health fads for a number of years and I was looking for a program that would make me healthy for the long haul, not a fad that made me feel good for a while, followed by an inevitable crash. I was mostly looking to increase my energy and sleep better, to start. During my first consult I mentioned to Dr. Smith that my husband and I had been struggling with unexplained infertility for the past 4+ years, and he warned me that a "side effect" of his HTMA program could be pregnancy, as he had seen this happen with other clients. Sure enough, after 8 months of following his program I discovered I was pregnant! Keep in mind this was after nearly 5 years of following both natural and conventional methods to overcome infertility, without success. I have no doubt it was Dr. Smith's program that provided my body with the right balance of minerals to allow my body to be healthy enough to conceive, carry and give birth to a healthy baby.

Fast forward 15 months postpartum, I had continued to follow Dr. Smith's program. Much to our surprise, my husband and I discovered we were expecting again. We hadn't really even been thinking about that possibility given our previous struggles, so be warned, that is how well Dr. Smith's program works! Clearly I have him to thank for my two little miracles.

I am currently 9 months postpartum after giving birth to my second child. Honestly, up until recently I had yet to notice any improvements in my energy and sleep, but I had faith and proof that the HTMA program was making positive improvements to my health given the changes in my HTMA results and my ability to conceive and carry two children. At around 5 months postpartum I did an iron overload consult with Dr. Smith and a couple months after following the iron overload suggestions combined with his HTMA suggestions I am finally feeling an increase in my energy and I am sleeping better. It's so wonderful to have this energy to keep up with my kids. I am only expecting to continue to see improvements as I carry on with this program.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to improve their health. Dr. Smith makes it very easy to follow with streamlined treatment plans and detailed client handouts. If you follow his supplement suggestions and make a few changes to your diet, you will be feeling great in no time. One of the things I love most is that it is simply providing your body with the minerals and vitamins to do what it needs to do to work optimally. It's not forcing your body to do anything it doesn't want to."

Hair/Nail Regrowth & Feeding

"I haven't even consulted with Dr. Smith yet, but I have some amazing news- I've been following the "what you can do right now" protocol you sent me for three weeks along with changing everything he said to with my current supplements and I have HALF AN INCH OF HAIR GROWTH! In three weeks! My hair has always grown MAYBE two inches a year. My nails are going crazy too, I've had to cut them twice. Oh, and I'm producing more breastmilk when I pump... I haven't changed anything else! This is so cool! Thank you so so much and please thank Dr. Smith for me if you have a chance!"

Skin

"Hi Garrett

Thought I would share this with you. Yesterday I had coffee with a friend who I hadn't seen for about 3 months and she said whatever I was doing, to keep doing it!!! She said my skin looked amazing and that you would never know that I had kids as old as they are (I was 29 when I had my first one, so not as if I was a teenager!!).

So, not only must I look better, after going gluten free and not having digestive issues anymore, I feel better 🙂 🙂

Can't thank you enough 🙂"

Neuropathy

“After 10 years of neuropathy following a right thyroidectomy, the hair testing program and supplements from Dr. Smith are the only thing that has taken it away. I have spent the last decade trying countless medical, natural and homeopathic remedies, along with acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga and other avenues, without success. I am so pleased to finally be free of this pain.”

Caffeine

“I’ve always been sensitive to caffeine, experiencing anxiety, heart palpitations and what I can only describe as the ‘jitters' after just small amounts of caffeine. After a year taking molybdenum at Dr. Smith’s recommendation, my caffeine sensitivity has improved remarkably. I can now drink a full-strength espresso without getting the jitters! Whilst it wasn’t a symptom I consciously set out to improve on this program, it’s not a change I’m complaining about!”

35 years Chronic Health

“I have been on Dr. Smith's Hair Mineral Program for the past three years, and it is the only program that has proven itself to work for me (and my family members who are on it now also, after my success). After 35 years of chronic health issues including fibromyalgia and hormone imbalances, I had given my best efforts to conventional medicine, traditional Chinese medicine & acupuncture, numerous diets (low carb, alkaline, vegetarian, vegan, Weston A. Price, and everything in-between), custom supplements based on blood tests, and even iridology. I saw many well-intentioned specialists who had many answers that led nowhere, as well as doing tremendous amount of research on my own. I was just leaving my "I give up" phase when I came to Dr. Smith with very little optimism and a literal long list of ailments. Slowly in some areas and quickly in others, I began to see improvements - and then began to cross each health issue off my list. My experience with the hair mineral analysis program has been one of "two steps forward and one step back" as my body has cycled through the healing process. Dr. Smith has walked me through each bump and celebrated with me over the successes that followed. Having confidence in my health provider and three years of consistent improvement makes it easy to continue - I have my list to look back on and a whole lot of hope to cross off the few remaining issues. I would encourage anyone who is considering Dr. Smith's program to jump in with both feet. His unique approach has been a worthwhile investment, and his communication is top-notch. Our family is the healthiest we've ever been!

Sincerely,

A Very Happy Client”

Joints

“I have really good news! My joints feel amazing! I started what seemed like a systemic flare in April or May. While we had family visiting and even a few days while I was traveling in Scotland, some of my finger and foot joints were inflamed and sore, especially on rising. On a few occasions, my wrists would get in on the act. There were a few days where I had to rely on an Advil so I could walk without my feet hurting. Most days I just move through the stiffness and stick with my routine of waking, exercising, eating breakfast and then walking the dog. There were a few weeks in late May and early June where my feet were really uncomfortable in shoes. I'm not sure what that was all about (weather, stress, diet???) or whether cutting down on my flesh intake made this switch...but I'm absolutely thrilled!”

Mental and Physical

“Hi Dr. Smith, Happy New Year!
I'm two full months into the treatment plan and wanted to write you to say thank you. I feel fantastic. The first month was a bit rough. As you signaled, I experienced retracing in the form of allergies, lower back pain, T1 inflammation, and cold sores. They hit back to back and sometimes ran parallel. I was a wreck. Because you alerted me to it, I understood it when it came and after a few weeks, the discomfort withered away. I've really hit my stride these last two weeks. I feel mentally and physically sharper than I can ever remember.”

Nightshades

"I'm trying to be conscious of nightshades and limit consumption. I think I'm noticing a decrease in headaches and muscle tension in my neck. I would get headaches quite often that felt like they were coming from tight neck muscles which I just attributed to poor ergonomics. But I also noticed that headaches would come on after I ate. The last 3 times I had marinara sauce, I had a headache. That's when I decided to reduce the nightshades and see how I felt. So far so good. I will definitely keep up this experiment. Haven't had a bad headache in 2 weeks. It's great!"

Feeding

“I started the supplements on Sunday. I just realized tonight that I am not in pain while breastfeeding. Usually by the end of the night she has to suck harder to get milk so I'm in so much pain by the last 2-3 feeds before she goes to bed. I feel nothing the last 2 nights. I'm thinking my supply must be increasing. I've also been having vasospasm/Raynauds of the nipple often. The blanching of the nipple and pain would last for an hour or more sometimes. It became so normal to me I didn't even think to mention it to you during our consult. I thought it was due to a suboptimal latch. But it's gone. I can't believe it! In 2 days!! The supplements are the only thing I've changed! Thank you! :-)”

Anon

Iron Overload

"Also, on a related note, I've only been following the iron overload protocol for a little over a week, but so far it seems like it is having the biggest improvement on my fatigue, headache, and blood sugar symptoms out of everything that we've done so far. My blood sugar is still a bit unstable at times, but this seems to primarily happen when I let myself eating something made with fortified white flour. I used to think that was an issue with consuming simple carbs, but I don't necessarily have the same issue when eating fruits. I'm starting to think it may be due to the iron they add to the flour rather than the flour itself."

Anxiety

“I have been working with Dr. Garrett Smith for about 6 months now. My health issues began back in 2011 with my first anxiety attack. From there, I started having every possible heath issue from fibromyalgia, chronic sinus infections, PMS, low stomach acid, fatigue, anxiety, digestive issues, no appetite, weight loss, low thyroid function, joint pain, lower back pain... My entire body was falling apart. I went to every MD, holistic and homeopathic practitioner I could find. I spent over $20,000 on doctors, supplements, acupuncture, massages and therapies in order to get well again. No one took me seriously and I was constantly being told that it is all in my head and that I was perfectly fine. After a while, those doctors gave up on me and told me that they could no longer help.

Thank God I came across Dr. Smith. After my 1st hair analysis he was able to tell me right away what was causing all the symptoms. I felt better within the 1st month of working with Dr. Smith than I ever did for the past 5 years. Dr. Smith is very understanding, very honest, knowledgable, and most of all very caring. He never gave up on me regardless of how many emails and questions I sent. He always had a very knowledgeable and reassuring answer that would calm down all of my fears. During my 6 months with Dr. Smith, I went through so many detox symptoms, passed a parasite, my PMS is gone, my eyebrows and hair started filling in, and I have so much more energy. He is really one-of-a-kind doctor out there that cares about his patients and is very dedicated in getting their health back. There are not many doctors, if any, like him out there. Soon I will be on my 3rd hair test and I know that my health with Dr. Smith will just keep improving.”

Cod Liver Oil Damage

"I happened to come across the whole FCLO(fermented cod liver oil) scandal in recent days and I was absolutely shocked. Despite me taking the FLCO, my Vitamin D levels were low on all blood tests and my doctor recommended I go on Vitamin D supplements, which I did. When I first came to you, I mentioned that I had been suffering from heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat that would force me to sit down, facial paralysis, unexplainable weight gain, nausea, dizziness throughout the day, and migraine headaches. I went back to my journal for that time period, realised I had been on this FCLO pretty consistently for about 2-3 years and never connected the dots together. My CRP was always elevated as well, and when I went to my blood test results, I noticed a spike in my CRP levels, triglycerides, high LDL whenever I had gone back to the FCLO (sometimes I’d forget to take it for a few days which would turn into a few weeks and then I’d go back to it). I had this gut feeling at first that it was the Vitamin D supplement I was taking and as soon as I just stopped the Vitamin D and CLO, I felt so much better! I couldn’t understand at the time why I was eating so well and taking all the “right” things and still feeling like crap, and in fact the worst I had ever felt in my life.

I have to say I have personally experienced the same thing that others have mentioned: when I started or restarted the FCLO/CLO, I’d have amazing improvement initially and then suddenly things stopped working. At the time, I blamed my symptoms on poor adrenal health or Lyme disease. Never once did I suspect it was the FCLO! The outcome was the same as what others have mentioned: my health improved and symptoms went away immediately after stopping all CLO and Vitamin D supplementation. If it had really been poor adrenal health or Lyme, I’d still be out of energy and sick all the time, but I had never felt so much better until I stopped the CLO and Vitamin D."

Energy is better, so I've started doing Pilates a couple times a week in addition to my daily walks with the dog.
In regards to hormonal health, I'm starting to see changes. My period started Tuesday and while I did still have a migraine, it lasted 1 day instead of 3. Cramps weren't as bad as usual, and my energy was also better than usual.
I think the biggest change I'm noticing, though, is that I'm starting to want to do things again. What I mean is that for a really long time now, I have been coming home from work and just wanting to veg out on the couch the rest of the evening and not do anything. Now I'm coming home and playing with my dog, doing chores, cooking, or whatever else needs to be done and it doesn't feel impossible.
So anyway, I'm happy with the progress I'm seeing."

Feeling Better

“Update:

I already notice a difference

It's easier to get out of bed in the morning. It's not 100%, yet I notice a big difference where before it was painful to wake up and get out of bed and now it's not.

I feel like the constant low-grade edema has gone down

I feel clearheaded, more alert, and I have more energy.

It's a great start and I'm so excited, thank you so much”

Sleep

"I’m so happy to tell you that my sleeping has improved hugely! I’m sleeping about 7 hours a night in total which is totally amazing! Thank you thank you thank you!! I still wake up 2 – 3 times a night, but I’m sure with time, that too will improve, and mostly I just fall straight back to sleep. I had one day last week where I was really fatigued and felt exhausted, which may have been the healing crises you explained, but other than that I’m feeling great and have pretty good energy levels. Even my fibromylagia pain has improved a lot."

Menstrual Cycle 2

“ My periods have become much closer together compared to before and becoming more predictable. Now my cycles are averaging about 31-35 days, which is a huge improvement from 65-75 days!”

The hair mineral analysis has been the most important testing tool in my naturopathic practice for a couple of years. I had already figured out that it is sometimes best not to do "what the lab says“ and also not to do what some other authorities on the HTMA say as well. By following a few of Dr. Smith’s interviews/articles, I knew that we were generally on the same page and I wanted to see what he had made of the HTMA concept. Long story short: I am so glad I signed up for his HTMA webinar class. I learned so incredibly much and I have been having immediate, even dramatic results with myself and I am sure clients will follow very soon. His findings are really unique. What I really appreciate about Dr. Smith is that he never stops learning, researching and revising his own concept to make his treatment better. I will definitely sign up for further classes!”

"I started on Dr. Smith's program because a friend recommended him. I was suffering with constipation and low energy. After only 6 months on the program my energy had improved greatly and I was more regular than I had been in 2 years. My hair was thicker, my skin had improved, and I was surprised to find that I was pregnant! I had struggled getting pregnant in the past and this one was a complete surprise! Dr. Smith is very knowledgeable and as a medical professional the reasons behind his treatment are fascinating. He uses up to date research and really has a passion for what he does. He's very patient and willing to work with you when problems arise with your treatment. I believe he is truly helping people to improve their health by getting to the root of the problem instead of treating symptoms with a prescription pad."

“BTW, my joints feel much better. I haven't started protocol yet with the specific supplements (waiting for them), but ditched past weeks vitamin D supp, made food based adjustments and results are showing :)”

"You do not know how happy I am today putting all these pieces together. Since I started your program I've felt better the past 2 weeks I have in years. I've lost 9 lbs even though I'm eating (eating a lot actually, I've been getting all my potassium in from fruits and veggies). I feel like my body may actually be starting to function correctly and I may have a chance to beat this (especially if I can get these pesky infections under control)! ♥ I've been going to naturopathic doctors for 8 years now, and while they've helped me immensely, I've been treating my "adrenals" for 8 years and my cortisol levels have barely increased the tiniest amount IN 8 YEARS!"

"While on Dr. Smith's program, I experienced freedom from the brain fog that I've had for nearly all my life (and I'm in my 60's). And as to saying "nearly all my life' I actually cannot remember ever NOT having brain fog. I was magnificent at memorizing and regurgitating, but was practically incapable of independent thought! Thanks Doc!"
