I first met Dr Shah 20 years ago, when I visited her because my allergies were out of control. I was taking 150% of the prescription dose for a decongestant that is no longer on the market because taking less left me with constant severe pain in my ear (think knife in the ear!). This was very significant because I am a piano teacher and it is impossible to listen closely with that kind of pain. My blood pressure had started to rise, which promoted me to seek some healthier means of dealing with my allergies. After just a week, I was off all the allergy medicine, with the help of a homeopathic remedy. My blood pressure normalized and I have never had to take the decongestants again.
Dr Shah also saved my life! This is not an exaggeration. About 10 years ago, I called her because I had a fever (literally the second one in my entire adult life!). We both thought that I had the flu. On the second day, I was discussing my symptoms with her in a phone call and mentioned that my lower back hurt. She instantly told me that this was very serious and that it was likely to be a kidney infection, a diagnosis that was confirmed that afternoon at the doctor’s office. I was immediately given IV antibiotics. I mention this to address any worry that you may have, going to a non-conventional medical provider. I have complete confidence that Dr Shah will steer me toward conventional medicine as needed.
My daughter has also been a beneficiary of Dr Shah’s wisdom. At 4 years old, she had complete bladder control during the day but was never dry at night. I love that the first time I brought her in, Dr Shah’s reaction was to point out my daughter’s excellent health and her advice was to just let her mature. At 6 years old, we revisited the issue, and after just one dose of a homeopathic remedy, my daughter went form never dry to never wet. Amazingly, that was it- no more issue!
Through the years, I have recommended Dr Shah to many friends and students. One family was planning to leave Houston, although the father was the head of a major health provider in town, because they all had such bad allergies. They first saw Dr Shah 15 years ago and they are still in town and healthy. Others have been able to lessen cat allergies to the point that they can not only take lessons in my studio (where there is a resident cat), but also have a cat in the home environment. Many have gotten relieve from acute illness (think severe cold and flu), injuries, and chronic conditions.
If you see Dr Shah, my recommendation is to let her tell you which modality will work best for your issue. She is very wise and experienced. You can completely trust her!
