I was diagnosed with depression when I was 15 years old. My whole life I’ve been on the up and down roller coaster of prescription medication and self-help. I am a health and wellness coach, an athlete and an entrepreneur and my life is very hectic. I must balance between being a stay at home working mom and also pursuing different goals in life as well as in businesses.
When I started the protocol with Dr. Rasheed I was blown away with her approach. I had never encountered a medical doctor with such detail and holistic regards to my mental health care. I have always taken medication, but I know that medication for my condition doesn’t cure it but helps manage daily life as a mental health patient. However, as a wellness coach I know the root of the problem has to be addressed. No one addressed it until I found New Horizons. I never really understood how this treatment would completely positively change my life because. I never knew I had Anxiety, ADHD as well as a slight form of dyslexia and OCD. All I was told was that I had depression so all I have ever been treated for during the last 26 years of my life was depression. That’s it. Everything else was left undiagnosed and worse untreated because no one could detect it. Until Dr. Rasheed did. Finally, it all made sense. My life and my condition made sense. She gave me the power of knowledge.
I am a believer in her approach. It’s what I knew has been missing from seeing different psychiatrists and therapists through my life. I’ve never really been given a diagnosis like the one I was given by Dr. Shama Rasheed with all the technology and accuracy, based on a clinical research approach. She developed a tailor-made plan for my condition, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
It has taken me so long to find the detailed care herself and her staff has made sure I have. I am 100% satisfied with every treatment that I get. As a health advocate myself, this level of care is what we are missing from our medical field, where the root cause is not usually addressed, and if it is, the approach of “have a pill” to treat symptoms and not the person herself, is a detriment to everyone on this day and age.
Thank you, Dr. Rasheed, and everyone at New Horizon’s. I owe you so much.
