Cameron Scott: Hashimoto’s Disease
Mary Ellen Cameron Scott, 57, of Rochester Hills. Mother of two, grandmother of one.
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease, a thyroid disorder, and had struggled with memory loss and with my weight for years. I hadn’t slept through the night in about 15 years. I give presentations in front of people and I was getting so forgetful, I worried I wasn’t going to be able to work anymore.
Once, I had driven about a mile away from my house and I didn’t know where I was or where I was going. That’s what made me decide to go see Dr. Waller.
She gave me hormone supplements and within a week, I was feeling better. It’s really amazing how my health has turned around, especially my memory. I also had the beginnings of osteoporosis and in a year, I have reversed that with vitamin and mineral supplements. My cholesterol and blood pressure have now dropped to safe levels and my homocysteine level has been cut in half, reducing my heart attack risk.
When I think of the expense, I think that I wouldn’t be able to do my job if I hadn’t met Dr. Waller. So, it’s worth it. My goal is to be healthy until I die and I plan to live well into my 80’s!
