I believe that Barbara is the wisest, most passionate and intuitive functional medicine practitioner out there. I came to Barbara with a broken gut and some autoimmune issues that needed some more work. Through some testing and interpretation of genetic information, Barbara got me started on the right path to heal my broken gut, thus making a huge improvement in my autoimmunity. She takes her time and thoroughly goes over everything as to the how’s and why’s of what we are doing, and I began a limited diet and some supplements and began to feel better almost immediately. She showed me charts of why certain things were happening in my body and my brain, and what we could do to heal them. I have worked with other practitioners in the past who have either not been very communicative or just plain not very knowledgeable, and Barbara blows them out of the water with her knowledge of how to feel our best as humans. She always gets right back to me, which is truly amazing and so very appreciated…as sometimes while I was healing, I would get anxious or have questions about whether or not I was doing something right. Barbara is a rocket scientist for the healing and wellness of our bodies, her focus is on true and lasting wellness, and after so many years of being brushed aside by practitioners who did not have my best interests at heart, she is truly a breath of fresh air and I…
“Sometimes the cure is worse than the sickness”, so my gastroenterologist told me in February 2015. I saw him after two rounds of antibiotics to treat h-pylori had failed and had also brought on c-diff. It all started in September 2014 with a small pain on my side. My primary care doc ordered many tests and finally a stool test found h-pylori. The antibiotic treatment for it was horrendous. I ended up with really bad acid reflux that felt like I had swallowed gasoline. I knew something was seriously wrong. After numerous ER visits they finally found the c-diff and with different antibiotics it cleared up. I still felt horrible though and had flu like aches and pains for weeks. I went to two different functional medicine doctors but found that they really weren’t familiar with h-pylori and what they recommended didn’t with the pain, weakness, and acid reflux. In March of 2015, I finally found Barbara after doing a search for functional medicine practitioners who experience with h-pylori. She reviewed all my lab reports and blood work and found that my body just wasn’t absorbing the minerals from my diet. She put me on a strict diet and supplements regimen. It was difficult and it didn’t happen overnight but about 30 days later I had more energy and appetite. The pain and acid reflux had subsided significantly. I was tested again in May 2015 and the results were negative, yup negative for both h-pylori and c-diff. I’m still not…
In the 5 short weeks you have worked with me, I have noticed several significant changes. I am sleeping better, my digestive system is working much better, I have more energy and I have lost 9 lbs. I am looking forward to taking my health to the next level. Thanks for your help.
This past August while studying abroad in Paris, France my health took a turn for the worse. I was 24 years old, extremely active and constantly challenging my mind as well as my body, yet, doctors were telling me I’d be on heartburn medication for the rest of my life. Until I met Barbara, it’s what I truly began to believe. However, within weeks of my first consultation I was seeing the symptoms of my illness simply vanish. After sitting down and looking over my blood work, in combination with supplements and minor diet modifications, I am now feeling like the old (young) me. I believe wholeheartedly in Barbara’s methods and my health is a testament to her theory and expertise. These days I enjoy walking my dog, camping and surfing while confidently living a healthy lifestyle thanks to Functional Health!
If you are ready to take control of your health you must see Barbara Solomon. Her knowledge and understanding of the human body is amazing. With her help we were able to figure out what was making me sick. She also had an action plan on how to heal my body. With in days I felt so much better. I no longer have digestive problems or joint pain. I sleep through the night and have so much more energy through out the day. I also got rid of the brain fog! Thank you so much Barbara.
I have so enjoyed working with Barbara, she has gotten me out of the medical world of “you have to be on thyroid medication for the rest of your life” and into many other areas that effect hypothyroidism. After learning so many things, which she generously shares with you, I am now living the good life down in Costa Rica and not having to worry about taking “meds” for the rest of my life. I do take a minimum of supplements. I so enjoy working with Barbara because she is so passionate about what she does and does a lot of research. She is continually learning the newest developments in science and health. She spends time with you making sure understand and have the right supplements to help you improve. I found working with her one of the best investments I made in healing my health at 70. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is tired of going to many doctors and getting treated poorly without any improved results AND who wants to be more responsible for their own health.
I first saw Barbara Solomon about a month ago. I was dealing with an issue that left me very fatigued and weak. My hair was falling out and I had indigestion, a lingering depression with chronic insomnia. Barbara Solomon’s approach was to first identify through extensive blood panels, what was going on. I saw her again as we discussed the results and she explained (in terms that were neither condescending or too obscure in medical terms) the issues I was facing and the protocol for getting my health back in order. It has been 30 days and I feel like a new person. I know I have work to do to maintain this but with the diet recommendations and supplements Barbara recommended, my life has changed. I went on a long canyon hike today and I could not do this a month ago. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone who knows that there are answers out there but finding the right person to help is the challenge. Thank you Barbara for your intelligent approach and your sensitivity and availability in my time of need.
Thank you for the time and effort you have given to my health. I trust your intelligence and rationale behind your decisions. You made it easy for me to understand and implement nutritional changes. I have tried a variety of health support systems, but I feel confident in what you have suggested. Thanks again, I am telling everyone in need that you are the best!
When I was visiting in San Diego I met Barbara Solomon. I was impressed by her knowledge and obvious desire to help others reach optimum health. Since I live on the East Coast I was disappointed that I would not be able to use her services. However, a month later when I had a health challenge and was reminded of meeting Barbara I called and arranged for a phone consult. This was last March and I have been working with her consistently since then. My health has significantly improved and I feel much of that improvement is directly related to Barbara’s assistance. She always asks pertinent questions, follows a logical path of investigation and suggests efficacious interventions based on the information she receives. I have appreciated her offering various options to me that took into account my financial status, too. I feel she definitely has provided her services to me in a very individualized manner and am grateful this could all be accomplished “coast to coast”.
I first met Barbara at Jimbo’s Naturally; she was the guest speaker of the night. I was immediately drawn to her because she was completely engrossed in answering everyone’s questions and was happy to oblige us long before her seminar ever started. I was fascinated by her knowledge and I knew that this was someone that could help me. I am in the throws of menopause, unable to sleep, I have gained weight, I am very emotional and subjected to high highs, and very low lows, along with other long term health issues I have been dealing with. I have worked with many others before Barbara, trying to manage my health issues from being on bio-identical hormones to working with a colon therapist and although I was helped through these avenues it only scratched the surface of what I was going through…And that was where the help remained, on the surface. Barbara started by unpeeling the onion so to speak, she started slow but remained steady, and continuously reminded me along the way that we were partners in my health; it was a relationship towards better health for me and I really liked that as who knows your body and it’s issues better that you. There have been some trial and error issues along the way, but we are making huge progress in my health. I sleep at night, it is not ideal YET, but well on it’s way, my weight has decreased and continues to do so weekly,…
