“When it comes down to it, you can’t really put in to words what kind of impact Barbara has on your health. .but I’ll try. I found Barbara after being told by a so-called Endocrine Specialist that everything is normal and that I was fine. Apparently, “normal” is being so tired I could hardly function, chronic all- over body pain, insomnia, depression, adrenal failure and a host of other problems. I had two choices: take what he told me at face value and live a miserable existence or fight for my health and well-being. I am not exaggerating when I say that Barbara saved my life. In only 4 months, she has helped me turn my health around and almost all of my ailments are minimal or completely gone. I’m thriving and I love it!!! I have learned so much about my body and what healthy looks like from her. My journey is not over, we still have a lot to work on to get me to optimal health but if I can have such huge progress in that short period of time, I can’t wait to see how I’ll feel in a year.”
“I would highly recommend Barbara. I had a very rare allergic reaction to an antibiotic. My reaction was extreme, I don’t want to say almost deadly but it was. The symptoms I went through after were unheard of in the medical field. I was highly sensitive to the sun, can lights, electronic, chemicals, and almost all foods. Going from having no allergies to not being able to eat anything was extremely limiting plus all of the other symptoms. Prior to this I had gotten mono and developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Barbara was the only one who listened to me. She was extremely perceptive and can pinpoint your symptoms almost like a magician. We drew my blood and got me on a regiment of supplements that calmed my symptoms down. After a few months all of my energy came back. Back to waking up at 5:00am and ending my day at 10:00pm. I am a business owner and have always had high stamina. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. “
“I brought my son to Barbara because he was starting to develop an allergic reaction to something he was eating and was looking very thin, almost anorexic-like. She was very professional and so knowledgeable! She gathered a lot of information on him, studied it, and then we had a lengthy meeting. Barbara had phenomenal insight and advice to help my son get on the road to wellness. She provides a comprehensive packet of information and steps so that you know what to do after you leave the appointment. She responded quickly when I had a few quick, easy questions. I highly, highly recommend Barbara. This is how our healthcare system ought function – knowledgeable, personal, and bio-individual focused. Thank you for helping my son improve on his health! We so appreciate you.”
“I was in a lot of pain. Over the course of a year I was diagnosed with many new conditions including IBS, Crohn’s, and Lupus. For some, there is are no medication or treatment options available. My health continued to decline until I was consumed by daily pain. Nothing I did seemed to help. Barbara really listened to me. Even though I shared a whole slew of symptoms, that seemed impossible and unrelated, she was unfazed. Past doctors have tried to address one symptom or disorder at a time and I just never got better. After many trips to different doctors, Barbara was the only one who could take all of my symptoms and test results and make sense out of them. She tailored a plan specifically to me. I am in such a good place now. I am pain free, working more and able to enjoy activities with my family. I am truly living. Beyond the obvious benefits of feeling better, I have a much better knowledge base to keep myself feeling good. I am even beginning to look at the possibility of addressing the root causes of my thyroid condition something I never thought I would be able to do. If you are someone who thinks you have reached the end of the line, that there is no help for you, I am here to tell you to call Barbara. You are worth it and you deserve to live your best life. “
“After years of not being diagnosed, my Lyme treatment was stymied by sensitivities and health issues. Barbara quickly calmed my GI system and made it possible be able to take the needed supplements to help improve my health. Barbara is very caring and knowledgeable and I am greatly impressed by her vast array of solutions.”
“I believe that we are each responsible to take our own healthcare into our own hands…I am the captain of my ship and I do not turn my healthcare over to doctors who spend 10 minutes (with me) in their office and are keen to prescribe medication without uncovering what my body is telling them. I have become very disillusioned at the state of our healthcare system today. I avoid taking medications because I believe they are a “bandaid” only, and they don’t fix the underlying issues. The body knows what to do to keep us healthy IF we can give it what it needs and that is what Barbara is so good at doing. The big questions is…how do any of us know what our body needs? Even as I did my own research and crafted my own solutions I felt that I was often guessing. After seeing numerous doctors & health professionals over the years (including Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists, and more) for my health issues, numerous questions still plagued me…and my health issues were only getting worse! Then I met Barbara 4 years ago. Since that time she has become the only health professional I work with. And that is saying a lot, because I have worked in the healthcare field, and I am “self-taught” in the practice of holistic living. Yet, as I age, and have health issues arise (or worsen), I have found that consulting with Barbara on a regular basis has helped me…
I’m sooooo happy! Not only am I gaining weight and my calcium in urine (24-hour) test results came back normal. Hooray! That bodes really well for my bones. And I didn’t have to take diuretics! This diet/lifestyle stuff is POWERFUL stuff! Life changing. Thank you so much for all of your help. I couldn’t have done it without all of your knowledge and moral support. I’m feeling so good about my health now and not 1/10th as worried as I was. Thank you so much…..I’m psyched! Thankful, thankful, thankful.
Working with Barbara has changed my life and I will be forever grateful that she had the patience and drive to help me get healthy again. I had been to numerous doctors for digestive issues and increasing swelling in my neck area. The only real conclusion after all the testing was multiple food allergies. I was constantly thinking to myself “How could I have no allergies my whole life and suddenly be allergic to almost everything? Is this what ‘adulthood’ is?!” Thanks to Barbara being a super detective I am symptom free, back to a normal weight, and I am having an easier time processing foods. I love how comprehensive everything is and she really finds the problem no matter how sneaky, or hidden the problem is. I have not only learned so much from her but I have also gained an appreciation for this type of health program. The forms and journals may be tedious at times but the end result is so worth it!!! Barbara is the person you want when you finally want to be healthy again and you’re exhausted from all the medicines and doctors that don’t give you the time to extensively look through your health history. I am forever impressed with her work and feel that I am on the right track to complete health!
Barbara Solomon was a godsend to me. She helped me return to good health after many years of struggling with increasingly poorer health and odd symptoms that neither I nor my doctors could figure out. I saw many doctors including a naturopath, but none of them were able to help me. When I found Barbara I was in such a bad state that I thought I was dying. And looking back, I really believe I was. Very slowly dying. I was suffering with Hashimoto’s, poor digestion, multiple food intolerances, hives, itching, brain fog, depression, blood sugar swings, and severe fatigue. And I am only 32 years old! After just two months of following Barbara’s protocol, I felt better than I had in years! And there was no secret potion or dozens of tests involved. Barbara’s protocol was so simple and it worked! It worked because she is very knowledgeable about the many body systems, how they are all interconnected and how to get them working together properly again. I am so thankful for her and her knowledge and expertise. I continue to work with her in helping my health improve even more.
Over the years, I have seen a variety of alternative health care providers. Never have I received the kind of service and dedication as I’ve gotten with Barbara. Both my husband and I trust her deeply, and she is able to explain complex functions, and break it down to what I need to know. Her advice is practical, useful, and (not unimportantly) economical. I have recommended Barbara and Functional Health to many friends and will continue to do so. I give her an unequivocal ‘thumbs up.’ If you’re ready to really understand and change your health, definitely invest some time and energy in Functional Health!
