patient testimonials

“Dr. Armstrong pulled me out of a pretty bad health state, spent the time to get to know and understand me, and also gave me recommendations and a path that really changed my life. I've lost nearly 70 pounds now, my blood pressure is normal, and I'm living / eating way better than I ever have. I have more energy, I sleep better, I just overall feel better! Really all of the recommendations she gave me really opened my eyes - and quite frankly I feel helped to save my life... So very sincerely - thank you for saving me, and being the best doctor I've ever had.”


“I made the appointment to see Dr. Armstrong mainly to talk about my migraines, which had really gotten out of control (10+ per month). But I also wanted to talk to her about my thyroid disease, and my family history with autoimmune disease. I knew from filling out the online forms that I was going to like the approach of Dr. Armstrong, because the focus seemed to be on finding the underlying causes rather than just treating symptoms. Dr. Armstrong is a great communicator. She listened to my story and we came up with a plan together to help address my migraines and other concerns. I really loved the idea of thinking about nutrition, stress reduction and exercise as part of a treatment plan. At my second visit, my migraines were down by more than half, which in and of itself was fantastic, but I was (and continue to be) feeling super energetic and optimistic about my health. Dr. Armstrong keeps patients feeling like she is with them working on their plan for health, and I really appreciated that. My messages and questions were always answered immediately, and she always followed up with me. I’m 100% sold on the idea of functional medicine as the best approach to overall health. I recommend so strongly Dr. Armstrong! The results for me have really been life-changing and I am so happy that I made the decision to contact her.”


“When I first went to Root as a patient, I had recently lost 55 pounds and was feeling relatively healthy. Even though I had lost the weight and was feeling good I felt like there was something missing in my diet. I wasn't experiencing this overall sense of euphoria people describe after losing a lot of weight. Since starting a nutrition program three weeks ago, my anxiety has drastically decreased, my moods don't dip during the 2-4pm slump, I no longer have intense sugar cravings, and overall I feel healthier and happier! The information that I have received from Root has been invaluable and I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in improving their overall health.”


“Kelsey's advice has been very helpful in tweaking things for me and making this a long-term way of living not a quick fix or "diet". I'm excited about how the slight changes have kept me fuller longer and I don't feel as restricted as in the past.”


“I sought the advice of Kelsey after testing showed I had developed a problem with the protein powder I was using in my shakes every day. This threw a monkey wrench in my diet because these shakes were my main source of protein. Kelsey made very helpful suggestions about my diet. She is a very talented, knowledgeable and delightful young woman and I look forward to working with her in the future.”
