Dr. Hedaya is an extraordinarily skilled practitioner, at a level I’ve never experienced with any other health professional. He combines an incredible range of empirical knowledge with the skill to connect his research and experience for practical application. Through a highly individualized treatment plan, his goal is to address the root causes of disease and remove barriers to the body healing itself. After nine months beginning last year, my health trajectory is on the way up. And my recovery in cognitive function and mood is remarkable. I think of my newfound ability to recall names and other details as my “new superpower.”
I realize that Dr. Hedaya and his methodology are not for everyone. It takes as a serious commitment of time and money. Because he’s on the cutting edge of applied medical science, little is covered by insurance. For me, it also was a hike from my home in Virginia to his office in Maryland for testing and treatments. To effectively follow his advice and protocols, you have to commit to it as a second job. But what price is your cognitive ability, emotional health, and longevity? Seeing him was a unique bargain.
I first saw Dr. Hedaya in 2010 when I was recovering from extensive cervical fusion surgery and a dangerous staph infection in my neck. I was both physically and mentally exhausted and in a great deal of pain. His testing revealed some surprising health impairments never caught be other doctors, such as extremely high levels of mercury, neurochemical imbalances, adrenal insufficiency, and genetic mutations that affect my metabolism and mental health. Through treatments based on those results, we jump-started my self-healing, and I made major progress.
I came back to see Dr. Hedaya in 2019 at age 64, because I realized I was not performing at my best. I was astounded by the new diagnostic and treatment tools that had become available in just a few years. With qEEG, he was able to literally image the function of each region of my brain. Early vascular cognitive impairment was one of the most sobering findings.
But Dr. H gave me hope we could reverse it. In addition to supplements and probiotics, he devised a powerful multi-level treatment plan that included high intensity interval training and innovative uses of medical technology. The results after six months were dramatic. The follow up qEEG indicated amazing improvements in brain function. Qualitatively, I experienced major gains in memory and mood, hence my new “superpower.”
An added benefit for me, as man of faith, was our ability to talk about the spiritual dimension of my health. That is literally priceless.
