Powerful Patient Testimonial

Powerful Patient Testimonial

Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to share feedback on my experience with Innovative Directions in Health and more specifically, Dr. Sinda.

Bottom line in my experience with Dr. Sinda – he has been able to help me accomplish more with my health in the past 6 months than any other physician has been able to do for me in the past 7 years.

I was always diligent in making sure my annual exams every fall were completed. Every year I would explain how I was tired, not able to lose weight (even though I was exercising 4-5 days a week), and was waking every 2 hours each night, and all those other things that come along with my age. My physician would spend her 10 minutes with me and ask me the same questions as the previous year (even though I had been going to her for many years) and then tell me the same thing “you just need to accept it” and “there is not much you can do – just work out more!” I even went to an Endocrinologist and had additional testing done because they were convinced that I had a thyroid problem – nope wrong again!

Quite honestly – I was tired of hearing the same response and decided I needed to be assertive and challenge what they told me. So, I pulled out the last Suzanne Sommer’s book and starting reading – then got to the section of recommended facilities and noticed there was one in Minnesota! Yeah!

Fast forward to January, I scheduled the appointment with Dr. Sinda where we went through a very thorough discussion on my health, history of my family’s health and discussed the Innovative Directions in Health’s process. Being very impressed with the level of attention to me and my symptoms, I decided to move forward with the process.

My lab tests showed that my progesterone was extremely low, my estrogen was low, and most surprising was that I was Vitamin D deficient. Based on the all the results, Dr. Sinda was able to personalize my treatment plan with natural replacements. After 4 months of using his recommended approach, here are the positive changes that I have seen:

  1. Not tired anymore!
  2. Losing about ½ pound a week and have more energy to work out – working out 5 to 6 times a week.
  3. No more feelings of being bloated.
  4. Actually getting sleep – only wake up once a night.
  5. Found a physician that actually listens and gets to know me as a person!

The current results have been wonderful, but the even more amazing story is that the changes that I have seen from my experience is creating a more long term impact on my health. I work for a large healthcare company and for the past 5 years we get incented with lower healthcare premiums based on “passing” certain biometric screening tests. This is the first year that I have been able to “exceed” these metrics – BMI, Blood Sugar, Cholesterol and also the Blood Pressure measure. No more being a “Pre-Diabetic” or “High Blood Pressure” patient!

Making the decision to work with IDH has been one of my best health decisions – after all we are in a “consumer directed health environment” and this is proof about how taking responsibility for our own health can be rewarding.

Thanks Dr. Sinda for listening and making an impact on my current and future health. Don’t change anything with your approach, just try and reach more people!” Cheryl F.

We would love to reach out to help more people.

Jill is Minnesota’s Bellafill Trainer

Jill is Minnesota’s Bellafill Trainer

Innovative Directions in Health is proud to announce our Nurse Injector, Jill Porter is now a National Trainer for Bellafill!

Because of her extensive experience with cosmetic injectables, Jill has been selected to train other providers about the indications and techniques used with this premium product!

Bellafill Background

Bellafill is breaking ground with collagen stimulation lasting 5 years! Bellafill has become the dermal filler of choice because it stimulates and creates your own collagen production resulting in a refreshed and natural look. We recommend Bellafill to patients who want to correct facial wrinkles, treat acne scarring and create an anti-gravity facial framework. Because Bellafill is permanent dermal filler, the manufacturer takes care to select only providers that they deem capable of administering this product.

How It Works

Bellafill contains collagen and small synthetic microspheres. The microspheres create a structure under the skin. Collagen fills the structure, adding volume to the skin and correcting lines and wrinkles. The microspheres in Bellafill are not absorbed by the body, so the body’s collagen is provided with a permanent structure to support the skin.  

What to Expect

Treatment with Bellafill is very similar to treatment with other injectable fillers. There is a skin test that is done prior to injections to identify those patients who may have an allergy to bovine collagen or lidocaine. Lidocaine is provided to minimize discomfort during injection. Upon injection, you will usually see immediate improvement to lines and wrinkles. The amount of Bellafill required will depend on the severity of the lines/wrinkles being addressed. A follow up visit will be scheduled to monitor the results of the collagen growth you experience. Results continue to improve with time as your own collagen growth is being stimulated.

 

When you are ready to experience results that stay and are natural looking, Bellafill is the choice.

TRAVEL TIPS!

TRAVEL TIPS!

Hello and Happy 2016!

What a wonderful year 2015 was! I’ve been taking the bioidentical hormones for over a year and a half now…feeling great! 2015 was a whirwind. We have 2 new grandchildren, my interior design business has never been better, and my days fly by feeling balanced and happy.

One special event last October was getting to go Germany. We were going to be gone for 10 days and I was starting to get my packing list together. We had a wonderful coordinator and I learned some important travel tips that I didn’t know.

Biggest tip!

Did you know that you can’t just put all your prescriptions in those cute little pill boxes? I did not know that when flying internationally, it’s important to take your hormones or any other medication in the original prescription bottles.

When going through customs, they need to be able to see the content, your name, and the prescription number. Who knew! I was so glad to learn this, as I was not leaving my bioidentical hormones at home, and certainly didn’t want my cute little pill box to be tossed in the trash before I even left!

We had a wonderful trip..and I didn’t miss a day of being balanced, well rested, and happy to be there! Thank you Dr. Sinda!

Have a wonderful February!

Warmly,

Susie Ries, Patient at Innovative Directions in Health
