Two different doctors said I would need to remove my gallbladder and another that I had an ulcer. At this point I became overwhelmed and even more depressed and started talking to Dr. Mendez about my health issues and she advised me to bring her a copy of my blood work. Once she saw my blood work she gave me a list of supplements and recommended a raw vegan diet for me to try. At first I was like, “oh boy no meat” but then I said to myself, “it's not that serious it's just for 1 month until I lose weight and my stomach cramps go away”. (I wasn't even thinking about my migraines). So I went for it and during the first 4 days I wanted to hang myself from the ceiling because I needed meat and my headache was very intense, but that was my body detoxing all the trash.
Basically I haven't taken anymore ibuprofen, phentermine, diuretics, sumatriptan, rizatriptan, topiramate, oxycodone, or dramamine. I have no more migraines, no more stomach cramps, no ulcer, and no gallbladder removal. I haven't had the flu since I started my new lifestyle (no more flu shot). I am definitely not constipated anymore. I lost a lot of weight and still going at it. Thanks to Dr. Mendez I don't run to the pharmacy when I have the cold, allergies, sore throat, or post nasal drip. She has taught me many natural alternatives to over the counter drugs.
I have learned a great deal from Dr. Mendez and it has helped me not only in my health but also has helped me save time and money (copayments at doctors, hospitals, pharmacies). Dr. Mendez has not only supported me physically but also spiritually, emotionally and mentally with my depression and anxiety. She is always there to cheer me up and giving me the extra push I need to help me with my new lifestyle. Every time I have questions or doubts about anything she is available unlike my other doctors. Dr. Mendez is extremely smart. She is the type of person that cares about your well being and genuinely wants to see everyone have a healthy physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well being. She does not give up and is very determined. She values her work and is very professional and welcoming. She is trustworthy and she follows her own advice in her life and not only does she tell you but you can see it for yourself once you meet her. I am very blessed to have been given the opportunity to meet a person like Dr. Mendez.
Written on behalf of her infant daughter: A couple weeks after I was born, I developed a bad heat rash and Dr. Mendez told my mom which oils to rub on my skin to allow it to heal on its own. My rash completely went away and I now have clear skin. I also started suffering from acid reflux. I would scream in pain all night leaving my mother distressed. I am completely breast fed, never had any vaccines or formula, and Dr. Mendez told my mom what teas she should add to her diet so that I could have relief from my acid reflux. Ever since my mom started following her advice, I don’t scream out in pain anymore.
