“I have been on thyroid medications for almost 20 years and on diabetic medications for 15 years. It seems that the medications continue to increase, while my symptoms worsened. I have rheumatoid arthritis, with pain through out my body, fatigue and feeling not as sharp as I was in the past. I began to see Dr. Vaughan and within a few weeks I noticed an increase in energy. My diabetic medications began to drop. My weight began to drop. I have fought losing weight all my life due to my thyroid issues. My A1C was 8.9 when I started, with 5 mg glipizide, 2000 mg of metformin, 150 Levothyroxine, and 40 mg 3 times a day of Simvastatin. Six months later I am proud to say I have more energy than ever. I lost 35 pounds. My A1C is at 5.6 and off all diabetes medications, off my statin medication and my thyroid medication dropped down to 25 mg. Dr. Vaughan helped me realize I also have auto-immune thyroid, and how to control my auto-immune flare ups from happening. If you want to be healthy or get support out of your disease to a better place, go to Dr. Vaughan. Stop waiting. Your health will only get worse if you don’t address it.”
“I started seeing Dr. Vaughan 2 months ago and I found her on the internet. Her testimonials and background seemed like she is what I needed. I have been on thyroid medications for 15 years and I am also diabetic for 10 years. I have had a hard time sleeping, my energy is low and I continue to be unable to lose weight. I have lost 20 lbs in 2 months. My energy is better than it’s been in a very long time. I have the energy to play with my kids and be a good mom. My thyroid has normalized, which I had to lower my thyroid medications. My A1C was 9.5, with Glipizide, Metformin and my doctors were about to put me on insulin. Now my A1C 6, only 500 mg of Metformin. Dr. Vaughan ran special test to find what’s going on with my body. She also found I am autoimmune thyroid. I didn’t know I had this autoimmune disease. She helped me understand how to stabilize my body with the right foods, as she helped rid me of infections that I didn’t realize I had. No wonder I didn’t feel good. I would highly recommend her and her office. I know it might seem different because of what we are accustomed to all our life, however I realized this approach is where I fit. It helps me be healthier, teaching me to regain control of my body and health.”
Dr. Vaughan is what I always thought a doctor should be. She is highly skilled and knowledgeable. She tests and investigates to determine root causes and finds natural ways bring the mind/body back inline. I tested very high for mercury 2 years ago from a regular doctor after I had requested a test. Their only concern and advice was eat less fish. Dr. Vaughan ran additional and broad tests. It turns out I have a gene that indicates my body doesn't get rid of heavy metals well so cutting out fish doesn't help much. She came up with a plan of vitamins, diet, processes and eliminating sources of mercury to cure my condition. Mercury attacks the nervous system so I had spasms in my arms and legs, brain fog and other issues. I'm only part way through the process but these are gone and many other things have improved. If you've tried prescribed drugs and it didn't fix anything then give Dr. Vaughan a call.
