"You're one of a kind, doc. We can't tell you how thankful we are to you for giving us hope and changing my wife's life - her GI symptoms are gone, her scalp psoriasis has completely cleared up (no doctor or medication has ever helped) and her hair is starting to come back. Thank you so very much!"
Regarding 52 year old female patient (Hair loss, Gastrointestinal issues)
"I can't tell you how grateful I am to you, Dr. Kannankeril. Working with you has made a world of difference in me getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy. I'm so thankful that you looked deeper into my hormones and put me on the treatment that you did. I completely trust you and the pharmacy and am just so happy that I went this route versus going through a fertility clinic. Again, I can't thank you enough. I can't wait to bring my baby in to see you!"
38 year old female patient (Fertility, Hormone Imbalance)
"I just tell my husband everyday how thankful I am for you. You made me more conscious of everything I do and how my body responds. You've helped me work through these symptoms and realize that it's not just a one-size-fits-all approach that works. My energy is better, my mood is better, no more hot flashes or night sweats and I'm losing weight!"
53 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"I just wanted to thank you so much for your personal care with my son. As you know, when we first came to your office, he could only say a few words and was constantly looking out the window instead of making eye contact. It's been hard, but after following your treatment for 6 months, he is saying complete sentences, making eye contact with all our family members and I think you remember this from our last visit: 'Dr. Kannankeril, look out the window, the crane is moving. Also, your name is hard to pronounce!' It's been wonderful working with you and we're so glad we found your practice."
Regarding 6 year old male patient (Autism)
"Coming here from overseas, I was a total mess. A girlfriend convinced me to have my hormones checked out. Thanks goodness I found you. Not only did you get me into balance, hormonally, but also emotionally. As I leave back to Dubai, I have lost weight and feel more energetic and more myself than ever before. I will miss you dearly. You helped me with my body and my hormones, but talking with you during our visits always made me feel open and centered. Thank you for everything!"
-34 year old female (Hormone Imbalance)
"I'll be honest, Dr. K, I had no idea what to expect on our first visit. You were very professional and knowledgeable about UC, but my gastro told me that no diet or supplements would touch the disease. I went through the testing you ordered and something clicked when you went over the results and your treatment with us. Still, I didn't think much would happen until I tracked my symptoms as you advised. I'm very happy to report that I went from 10 trips to bathroom a day to 2 with no blood or mucus. I'm very determined to keep this up and I wanted to thank you for your care and expertise."
42 year old male patient (Ulcerative Colitis)
"Dr. Kannankeril was the only person to tell me what I needed to hear about my relationship and the stress in my life. I felt so comfortable in talking with her and was able to open up about things I hadn't even told my family or friends. After crying in her office, I realized I had to make a change. Soon after that appointment, I made a big change in my life that no one saw coming. I feel freer, less stressed and feeling better than I've felt in years. I almost felt like Dr. K was my therapist in how well she listened and gave advice. I never would have talked to my primary care doc like that and it was her approach that got me to the point I am now. She really takes everything into account with her treatment and I'm forever grateful."
56 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"I have been to 3 internists and 4 gastroenterologists about these stomach issues I've been having. They all ran the same tests and said there was no problem. I have to admit I was skeptical coming in to your office, but you asked questions that none of the other doctors had asked before they ran the tests. It's been hard, but I've been avoiding the food sensitivities you found on the tests, and I haven't had a flare-up since! I can hardly believe it! Thank you!"
25 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"Dr. K, you are amazing. Thank you for taking the time, for listening, for running the tests that no other doctor even thought of and found the issues that have been affecting our son. ou have been such a gift to our family!"
Regarding 10 year old male patient (Autism, ADHD)
"I had a lot of doctors to pick from to help with my fertility issues. I'm so happy that I chose you. All the other doctors would have just put me on Clomid, but you figured out my thyroid issue and hormone issue. With you advise, care and treatment, I'm so much healthier, happier and in control of my life now. I'm actually able to enjoy myself and handle stress. I never would have been able to get here without you."
35 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"I'm serious when I say that I really wouldn't be where I am without you. When I came to you, I was scared about my pain, about all my symptoms and where I was in my life. You made sense of all my symptoms, the connection to stress and how I was handling things and got me to trust myself. Your trusting nature, careful attention and treatment and gotten me past all my previous issues. I've never made so much progress before with all my other doctors combined. I'm in control of my health and who I am. I so look forward to my appointments with you because you make me feel so much better about it all. So, thank you again for everything!"
32 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance, Gastrointestinal issues, Anxiety disorder)
"Looking back at 1 year ago, I didn’t think that visiting you would make a difference. But really, the difference is night and day – almost 180 degree turn. Was hopeless, barely functioning, huge list of things that was wrong with me. Now, not doing gluten and the enzymes that are helping, I feel so much better."
50 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"I was telling my friend that the discussions with you are so empowering. You made me realize that I have control over my health and that I can do something about it. It's really made a difference in my entire life!"
year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"A million thanks for your help with our son. One month on your treatment protocol and he is engaging, aware, making signs and trying to communicate with us for the first time ever! All our behavioral and speech therapists have said that he's like a different child! Even if this is the only improvement we see, that's fine because his response has been amazing! Thank you again!"
Regarding 2 year old male patient (Autism)
"Since starting your treatment, I feel more my age and have so much more energy. I'm only now realizing that my digestive issues were so exhausting all these years. I love coming in to see you and hearing your perspective. I get excited to tell my husband about all I learn after each visit. We think you should have your own tv show!"
30 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance, Gastrointestinal issues)
"I remember reading your testimonials before I came in to see you and now want to make sure mine makes it up there, too. When I first came in to see you, I had a long list of symptoms that I honestly didn't feel you could do much about. I can't believe I'm coming in to your office today without a single health complaint. It's been a long road, but I did everything you suggested and have really seen the results. Thank you!"
25 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues, Hormone Imbalance)
"Amazing experience from the time I signed in to checking out. Everyone was friendly and supportive. Dr. Kannankeril spent a generous amount of time listening to me and understanding my history and concerns. She was also extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand when explaining my treatment path. I am in a place of thanks and gratitude for the support and compassion, as well as the personal, loving, human element Dr. Kannankeril exudes. I look forward to my return visit."
30 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"I've been very impressed with your practice and how you are with your patients. I was particularly taken by the fact that you were my daughter's doctor and you spoke with her directly throughout the appointment. She says that you are her doctor and she's very happy about this. Thank you for being so sensitive regarding her health concerns and making her feel so comfortable."
Regarding 9 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"This is a belated but sincere thank you: for all of the support you provided me during my fertility struggles and throughout my pregnancy. Your expertise, openness and amazing ability to listen and respond to various needs of my (mind and) body really were the catalyst to my healthy pregnancy and the light of my life - our beautiful, healthy daughter who was born without complications. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I look forward to seeing you again soon!"
35 year old female patient (Fertility, Hormone Imbalance)
"I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June and the past six months have been a whirlwind of doctors, surgery and talks of chemo and radiation. You were the only doctor in this crazy time to sit down and listen to me and, even more important, explain exactly what is going on with all these treatments. Regardless of the path of treatment I need to take, I am truly grateful to you that."
42 year old female patient (Breast Cancer)
"I really have to thank you, Dr. K. My wife and I can't believe how much better I've felt in just one month. I'm not sure why none of my other doctors thought of running the tests that you did or even thought of talking to me at length about my symptoms. You really played detective on this one and we are very pleased with the results. Thanks again."
42 year old male patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"I wanted to thank you so much. I think you saved my life in some ways with post-partum depression. You ordered hormone testing and the hormone treatment you gave me totally did the trick. I was able to relax and enjoy my baby and I really couldn't do that before with all the depression, anxiety and exhaustion I was feeling. Thanks again!"
34 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"Good Morning Dr. Kannankeril, I just wanted to thank you for pointing out the gut issue to us. Our son has improved a whole lot as far as his gut goes. He is now using two words together like "ipad please". We are pleased with his progress. He is eating alot more vegetables and fruit and open to experimenting. He is also playing more with his sister which is a very good sign for us. We continue to take the supplements and just wanted to say thank you. Appreciate your opening our eyes to the gut issue."
Regarding 8 year old male patient (Autism)
"My whole lifestyle has changed within two months on your recommended treatment. The biggest thing is that I was used to having to go to the bathroom 10 times a day and now I've gone back to regular bowel movements - just twice a day and no more diarrhea. I can't tell you how much my life has changed because of this. Thank you, Dr. K!"
33 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"I came to your office out of desperation. I was having gastrointestinal bleeding and several painful trips to the bathroom every single day for over a year and all my gastroenterologist wanted to do was put me on steroid medication. You took the time to explain my condition to me (which no one has ever done) and within just one month of treatment, I have had NO more bleeding. My wife is ecstatic, I'm so very relieved and I can finally live my life without thinking about it anymore. We can't thank you enough."
32 year old male patient (Ulcerative colitis)
"I couldn't have made it here without Dr. Kannankeril. I was on bio-identical hormones including testosterone for 2 years without any help in my hot flashes or libido. On my first visit, Dr. K listened to what I was going through and reassessed everything. I'm on a treatment specific to me now and my energy is up, hot flashes gone and my libido is getting back up there. I really appreciate the work she's done for me and I can't recommend her enough. I'm taking my first vacation in 10 years and I couldn't have done it without her treatment."
50 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"Coming from a background of entirely conventional medicine, I had my doubts about the integrative approach you offer but was pleased to find out how scientific and lab-oriented your approach is. I had been on just about every medication you can think of for my GI issues and nothing helped. None of my doctors (not even my Dad) thought about ordering the test you did and since avoiding those foods and starting on your treatment, I've been symptom-free for 2 years! My family still can't believe it and I can't thank you enough!"
28 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"Our son is doing so well on only 2 months of treatment so far. It's like we have a new child! Along with ABA therapy, Dr. Kannankeril is part of a terrific team we have for our 4 year old son. We don't know what we'd do without her."
Regarding 4 year old male patient (Autism)
"I already feel so much better. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Dr. K. I really feel like she saved me. I was hopeless and at the end of my rope...then Dr. K came in as an angel. I want her to know how much she has helped me."
22 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"My husband and I really want to thank you for all the help you have given us. We credit you for our pregnancy, especially after our miscarriage, and we are so glad we found you. You've always provided us with terrific advice on virtually every topic we ask about. We really don't know where we would be without you. After coming in to your office the first time with my list of symptoms, it's hard to believe I'm feeling this well (even being pregnant) less than a year later. Thank you!"
32 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance, Lyme Disease)
"You were the only one out of all the doctors we saw to have figured out our son's GI issues. He's no longer in any pain and it's caused a tremendous change in his behavior. We were able to pull back on all of his meds and he's doing a lot better. Thank you!"
Regarding 12 year old male patient (Autism)
"I've been to 34 doctors in the past 8 months and no one looked at the whole picture like you did. No one looked at the surgery I had over 20 years ago and pieced things together. When I started crying in doctor's offices before, I was sent to a psychiatrist, but you sat down and talked me through everything and helped me to understand what was going on. I can't thank you enough."
55 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"I'm sad to be moving out of the country because I will miss my visits with you. Over this past year, you have been my lifeline. You have listened to me like no other doctor and with your treatment, we were able to get my periods back on track. Thank you for everything."
35 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
"I told my daughter that I'm so happy to have you as my doctor. You have this magnet with your personality that makes you so easy to talk to. You let me talk, but you listen to me, which is more than most doctors do. And I'm getting better!"
32 year old female patient (Fibromyalgia)
"I wanted to share some really good news with you. I've been on your treatment for about 2 weeks now and I have no complaints on my period for the first time in 8 years! No mood swings, no cramps, no pain! I wasn't expecting to feel this good so soon and I don't think you were either, so it's amazing! Thank you!"
22 year old female patient (Women's Health, Premenstrual Syndrome)
"I don't know what it is about you or your office, but I always feel so comfortable around you. I can open up about anything and you're able to make connections and help me make changes. I always leave your office feeling better about everything and it's a great feeling."
54 year old female patient (Depression and Anxiety)
"All the lifestyle changes you've instilled in me and have truly paid off. My previous doctor told me to go on a diet and exercise more. You've given me the tools so I don't have to diet. I know how to shop now, what different foods will do to my body and I can apply that to my whole family's diet. We're on a whole new path as a family because of you and I appreciate all the help you've given me!"
40 year old female patient (General wellness, Prevention)
"I tell my family every day that you're my angel. You're the only doctor who listened to me and trusted what I was saying enough to run the right tests to figure out what was wrong with me. I wouldn't have had a diagnosis before coming to you and without actually following the protocol, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you."
37 yo female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"It seems like we've hardly gotten started on the DAN! treatment with our son and we're seeing results already. I can't tell you how frustrating it has been going through the schools and IEPs and even pediatricians. It seems like no one listens or wants to listen. Going through this has been so hard on me and my husband and your office was such a find. It's hard to put our son through any kind of treatment because we're worried about what it will do to him. You always explain everything to us in a way we both understand and you always seem very careful in your treatments and running the tests to make sure he won't have any side effects. It makes us feel secure in our treatment decisions and it's something we never found with any of the autism resources. We really want to thank you for all your help throughout all of this."
Regarding 2 year old male patient (Autism)
"I've been going to Dr. Kannankeril since 2006 and we got on a path towards treating my hypothyroidism and rheumatoid arthritis. I no longer have joint pain and I have been steadily decreasing my thyroid medication. I feel the best I've felt in years. I'm Dr. K's biggest fan and can't thank her enough."
48 year old female patient (Hypothyroidism, Rheumatoid Arthritis)
"Thank you so much for your time, your attentiveness and your explanations. In the hospital and even with my regular doctor who I've seen for years, I never got this level of care. No one ever explained to me anything about my diabetes or high cholesterol. They just gave me the medication. You took the time to explain everything to me and my daughter and we have learned so much from you. Thank you again."
65 year old female patient (Diabetes and Cardiac issues)
"I tried everything from medications to acupuncture and nothing worked for that feeling of low energy. I just couldn't shake it. My regular doc thought it was in my head and only listened to me for a few minutes, but I knew something wasn't right. Two appointments with Dr. Kannankeril and everything has changed. I'm actually waking up before my alarm clock and I have energy to exercise again. She ran some tests and then actually sat down to review the results with me! I only had a doc call back if things weren't ok. After the testing, we found out that I had a gluten allergy and the doctor guided me through the dautning task of giving up gluten. It's been a great experience and I'm very satisfied with the results."
45 year old male patient (Chronic fatigue)
"Dr. K, you are a tremendous blessing to me. Rarely in health care today, do people get the kind of care you give. It means so much. I truly appreciate it."
42 year old female patient (Chronic migraines)
"I was suffering from fatigue for 6 years after a particularly stressful period. After hormone testing and an intense diet change, Dr. K has helped me get the energy back to take care of myself. Her techniques for stress management have helped my whole family! I'm very grateful to her."
38 year old female patient (Hormone Imbalance)
"Dr. K, I'm not sure if you understand how much you've helped me and my 2 sons. Both of my sons would have been on steroid medications for asthma and eczema without your testing and treatment. It's been 6 months and they're doing great. We really can't thank you enough. We don't know where our family would be without you!"
38 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
"I came in to you feeling like I was about to die, I had never felt so bad in my life. I came out of desperation, but I never believed in this stuff. And literally within a day of following your treatment, I haven't felt that way again. I just want to give you a hug, I'm so happy."
45 year old female patient (Lyme disease)
"We thank you very much for all of your information, time, and care. We always enjoy our visits and appreciate your compassion and passion for your work."
33 year old female patient (Preventive care, Wellness)
"My teenage daughter has traveled throughout the world, picking up parasites and always treated with heavy medication. On our last trip, she had over a week of severe stomach upset and other symptoms. We finally decided to go to Dr. Kannankeril for naturopathic treatment and she ordered testing. The testing found Blastocystis hominis which we looked up on the internet as very difficult to treat. Dr. Kannankeril put my daughter on her specific series of herbal preparations, some lifestyle changes and changed my daughter's diet and since that first week of treatment, she has been symptom-free! We always believed in this kind of medicine, but it's so nice to see it work so quickly."
Regarding 15 year old female patient (Gastrointestinal issues)
