I recommend Dr. Bryan Hoffman for all he’s done to help me as my Integrative Medicine doctor.
I feel strongly confident to recommend Dr. Bryan Hoffman as a primary doctor. He has been my family’s doctor for over 10 years now. With a family of six, he has been able to approach all of our medical and health needs, not only did he diagnose my third child with tracheomalacia when she was a newborn, but he has also helped my husband, my son and myself in many different ways like teaching us how to use health supplements and healthy ways to eat that truly help our bodies. But the most recent experience was saving my oldest daughter’s life by detecting a tumor and fluid in her brain. She had to get brain surgery, but fortunately, she has been cleared by the neurosurgeon now. He is a very thorough doctor, and also makes sure we understand his directions. He has always met our expectations when we come to the office, and all his treatments have worked for us. My family and I are very grateful to be under his care.
In 2014 I started having kidney stones, I got diagnosed with high blood pressure, I was told I was pre-diabetic, and I was put on birth control because I was bleeding for 3 weeks at a time. After going through 2 years of trial and error on all kinds of pills I started going to see different doctors because the kidney stones kept coming back and every 2 or 3 months I was in the hospital either getting lithotripsy, or with kidney infections and on two hospitalizations, I was close to septic shock. In 2016 I was put on depression medication, hormones, and more pills to try and stop the kidney stones from forming. I went to see a nephrologist and different urologist all so they could tell me I had no hope. and that’s just how I was going to be for the rest of my life. I tried every diet out there, pills for weight loss because at this point I wasn’t just pre-diabetic but full diabetic, the dosage of blood pressure pills was increased, more prescription pills were given to me, and I just lost hope more and more. I became so depressed that I did not want to keep living that way. I could not take care of my kids, and my hormones were all over the place so, I was put on hormones to try and stop the bleeding, which made me swollen and worse so, I had to get a partial hysterectomy. Every day I was worse and worse with kidney stones, kidney infections, I was taking 8 to 10 prescription pills for diabetes, high blood pressure, kidneys, allergies, depression, and not to mention all the pain meds so I could function a little from the kidney stone pain.
After all those pills, about 9 lithotripsies, a hysterectomy, and many many many rounds of antibiotics, and when I say antibiotic I mean I was on them for about 3-4 weeks at a time, in 2018 my primary doctor sent me to see Dr. Hoffman, and that’s when my life began to change. For the first time in 4 years, I wasn’t told I was hopeless, I wasn’t told that there was nothing to do, and for the first time, I didn’t get another pill. Dr. Hoffman said I had hope, and it was a simple fix (not easy) but simple. He told me to follow the AIP (Autoimmune protocol) and told me what vitamins my body needed. I followed everything exactly like he told me and 8 months later I’m no longer diabetic, or pre-diabetic, I’m actually living, I lost 30 lbs, I’m down to 3 prescription pills, I no longer take any pain medications, I haven’t been on any antibiotics, no more kidney stones, and no more visits to the hospital. If God had not put Dr. Hoffman in my life, I do not know how much longer I could have kept going the way I was going because, for a while, I started thinking that dying was a better way than to keep suffering the way I was. I got my life back!!!
Dr. Hoffman is knowledgeable in functional medicine, and that, combined with his traditional medical background and training, is an incredible asset. He provides education and coaching to optimize my physical health and well-being. It’s been a wonderful benefit and of immense value, as I work on implementing his suggestions.
I have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for years. I spent a lot of time in doctors’ offices looking for healing, but that only led to expensive medication and temporary relief. After a particularly bad flare-up, I was referred to Dr. Bryan Hoffman, who took a completely different approach with my care. First, he spent time with me, hearing all the various issues I had related to my illness. Second, he was thorough in his approach, explaining functional medicine and going in-depth detail on my test results. Lastly, Dr. Hoffman taught me how all the aspects of my health (mental/physical/emotional) are inter-related and how I could change my diet and lifestyle to heal myself. After following the prescribed supplements and anti-inflammation diet, I have been in full remission of my Ulcerative Colitis symptoms. I have nearly eliminated my prescription medications, I have more energy than I’ve had in years, I sleep great, I’ve lost weight, and I’m excited about my health again.
I highly recommend Dr. Bryan Hoffman for all areas of men’s healthcare, including hormonal health. Dr. Hoffman quickly diagnosed and treated my issues, taking the time to explain both to me. He treated me using a natural approach that is easily sustainable and has greatly improved my performance in all aspects of my life, including strength, stamina, and stress management. By sharing his experiences with me, both as a doctor and as a patient, I have a greater understanding of my body, and that has given me much more confidence.
My husband and I were trying to conceive for over eight months without any luck. We looked into alternative or more natural ways to help us out, and we found Dr. Hoffman. He discussed all of the factors that could affect us, and he ran lab work that showed that my hormones were out of balance. He discussed dietary and lifestyle modifications and recommended supplements that would re-balance my hormones, and in a couple of months, I was pregnant. We are now happy parents to a one-year-old daughter.
A year ago, I was a mess, physically and emotionally. I had been suffering from anxiety for seventeen years for which I had been prescribed the antidepressant, paroxetine. Of course, antidepressants take the edge off of anxiety and relieve the insomnia that comes with it, but they introduce a whole spectrum of unpleasant side effects of their own. Unwanted and relentless weight gain is the most familiar of these side effects, but I don’t think most people realize that antidepressants can cause people to literally lose themselves and who they are as a person. I tried to wean myself off of the antidepressant several times, and I did it gradually and under a doctor’s supervision, but inevitably the anxiety would return as soon as I encountered a situation that caused me some level of worry.
I am the type of person who searches for answers on my own, and I am truly opposed to simply throwing some pills at a condition to mask symptoms but not resolve the condition. I started searching alternatives that seek out the core cause in order to get to the root of the condition. My search led me to a clinic in Dallas that practices medicine in that way. I was paired up with Dr. Hoffman, who jumped right in and recommended extensive blood work to try and determine if I had nutrient imbalances or endocrine problems. After he studied my blood work, he suggested that I had “leaky gut.” After the diagnosis, I went on a one-month regimen of supplements and a diet that aimed at eliminating the common culprits that cause leaky gut (gluten, sugar, alcohol, etc.)
In addition to supplements and diet, I started using a device called “Alpha-Stim.” The unit is about the size of a deck of cards. It has a cord with clips that you clip to your ear lobesTurn it on for 20 minutes, and it delivers a microcurrent to the brain, modulating and stimulating certain nerve cells resulting in a calmer, more relaxed state of mind. Additionally, it promotes better sleep.
Let me tell you. I could not have imagined the change that happened with my body. I lost about 25 pounds of weight, including stubborn flab around my midsection. My energy level zoomed to the top of the scale. I honestly have not felt this great in decades. I was able to finally get off of the antidepressants ,which was one of my top goals. I almost forgot to mention that I had started to have nearly constant headaches, but they have disappeared as well.
Finally, I was able to enjoy life again, and I soon began to plan to prepare for retirement. I had been putting it off for so long simply because I felt bad for so long, and the medication had robbed me of ambition and interest in my future. I cannot say enough positive things about the practice of “natural medicine” and having Dr. Hoffman to guide me and help me to get where I am now has been a tremendous blessing.
If this strikes a chord with you or if you have been sitting on the fence not knowing what to do about your nagging health issues, then all I have to say is “do it.” Get with Dr. Hoffman and let him help you feel good again and enjoy your life like you haven’t done in years.
