Dr. Andrew Neville’s Story:
My Personal Journey with
Adrenal Dysfunction

Dr. Neville is well qualified to guide your journey, as it is one he also traveled.

Reese N., USA

As is true with most of you, the journey that landed me at Clymer Healing Center was a circuitous one. I suffered from Adrenal Dysfunction for many years prior to discovering what condition I actually had. I didn’t discover the underlying cause of my symptoms until I attended naturopathic medical school. I now know that I attended medical school for selfish reasons; it was an effort to figure out what was going on with me and my health.

I decided to pursue alternative medicine, not because I was raised that way, and not because I was I drawn to it for any altruistic reason. I pursued alternative medicine because, like many of you, conventional medicine failed me. No doctor I ever visited was able to define my problem fully, or to help me significantly with my health, until I stumbled upon the work of my mentor, Dr. Poesnecker. Certainly, I had experienced some small peaks in the valley of Adrenal Dysfunction: I would benefit temporarily from yet another antibiotic, or my symptoms would be relieved by some chiropractic adjustments; I was, however, never healthy, never far from the next crash, and always at the mercy of my condition’s uncertainty, its unpredictability.

 

My Path to Healing

During my time at Bastyr University, I worked in the university library where I was able to read and review much of the work of naturopathic medicine’s pioneers. In addition, whenever I was required to do additional focused research on a project or a condition, I inadvertently (serendipitously) chose Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia. To this day, I am amazed that I didn’t notice my pattern of research. This is the path that led me to discover Dr. Poesnecker’s book, The Adrenal Syndrome (now called Chronic Fatigue Unmasked 2000), deep in the recesses of the Bastyr library.

Upon reading Dr. Poesnecker’s book, to say “a light bulb went on” would be the understatement of the decade. I was both elated and angry for some time. Why had no one mentioned this dysfunction before? I had access to and had sought help from some of the best doctors in my profession, and still no one was able to explain the significance of the Adrenal Dysfunction that I so obviously had, for so many years. Years and years of trips to countless practitioners, both conventional and otherwise, and no one had ever mentioned the possibility?

I sought Dr. Poesnecker in Quakertown, PA (not a hot bed for the study of natural medicine, by the way). I became his precept. He treated me, and he became my mentor until his death in 2004.

We all heal differently and in our own time, as we are all unique beings. I am thrilled to be able to share my story, my experience, and my understanding of this frustrating condition. My goal is to help you understand your condition, its symptoms, and its origin. I want you to be able to treat yourself, now and in the future, and to heal on the deepest level possible.

I can help you uncover the true cause or illness and help you to heal once and for all. I will guide you to live calmly, pain-free, to sleep deeply, to have energy, to lose weight, to be able to think clearly again, to have joy, to have drive, to tolerate stress, and to look forward to daily life.

 

Why Choose Me?

Choosing me as your doctor is like bringing your Mercedes with a blown transmission to an experienced Mercedes mechanic. He specializes in transmissions; he’s been in business for over 10 years; and he’s worked on thousands of Mercedes transmissions. Choosing another practitioner or “expert” is like bringing that same  Mercedes to some dude down the road that once owned a Mercedes, who perhaps read an article on Mercedes’ transmissions, and who’ll “take a look” at your problem after he’s finished his beer.

Except we’re not talking about a car here. We’re talking about your endocrinology, your body, your health, and your life. Choose wisely. Choose me.
