What our clients have said about Dr. Natasha Thomas…
Without Dr. Thomas’s medical care I hate to imagine the poor state of health that I would be in right now. After treating with numerous doctors for depression, fatigue, joint/ muscle pain and weight gain I had no answers, only more prescription medication to take every day. Dr. Thomas found that I was suffering from mold illness from unknowingly working in an office with black mold.
After removing myself from this office and completing the medical regimen prescribed by Dr. Thomas I can now say that I am well again. Not only am I well, but I am functioning at the best level I ever have. I no longer take prescription medication, I have lost 25 lbs and I am enjoying my daily work as a nurse practitioner again.
As the year is coming to end I wanted to give thanks to important people in my life and I really have to give the most thanks to you Dr. Thomas. Just over a year ago my health was really poor due to my bizarre illness and after visiting many doctors I was not sure if I could ever regain my health as nobody had good solutions for me. None of the doctors could improve my health significantly no matter what they tried. Fortunately I found your practice and Dr. Shoemaker’s treatment plan. It has really given me a second chance at fully functional life again.
For the first 6 months on the treatment plan my health slowly improved and when I took all the recommended steps, including removing my root canal, I really started to feel like I was on the right track to full health. When I got on the VIP in July that was the breakthrough as I have basically been symptom free since then.
From not being able to work or even barely get outside of my home for over a year to working full time is truly life changing. Actually, I feel so good that I am able to run 2 small businesses at the same time and provide not for only for myself but to help people close to me. I hope this note reflects at least some portion of the gratitude I owe for you Dr. Thomas, for being able truly change my quality of life.

I’m still floored that my health issues were caused by mold exposure. I am still healing, but the symptoms have consistently and dramatically improved.
Being active in sports all my life, I’m very “in tune” with my body. These last 5 years knocked me on my a**. It was extremely frustrating going from doctor to doctor only to be told that, “There’s nothing wrong with you,” or “It’s all in your head; I’ll give you a prescription for anxiety.”
I’ve learned so much about the damage mold can do, even to healthy people like me. I thank God every day that I happened upon your website and you took me on as a patient. I am truly grateful for your knowledge and expertise in CIRS and Biotoxin Illness. Thank you again for helping me through this and listening and understanding me when I said I felt like I was dying from the inside out.
So blessed to have found you, and beyond grateful for Dr. Thomas’s continued help and support. Words cannot truly describe how thankful I am for you and your team. Thank you.
I have been treated for depression for 15 years. Dr. Thomas was the most empathetic physician who has advised me during my difficult times. She continues to provide excellent recommendations on natural treatments and therapies that prevent my depression from recurring.
Dr. Natasha Thomas is the best doctor I’ve ever had overseeing my healthcare and working with me to achieve optimum health. After going from to one endocrinologist to another in Washington, DC and South Carolina (following a complete thyroidectomy), my health was declining, prescribed medications weren’t in balance, and I was still struggling with hypothyroid symptoms. That made daily life difficult since I had limited energy. As I approached menopause, things became much worse because insomnia was also added to the mix of problems.
Around this time, I learned Dr. Thomas had opened her functional medicine practice and I began seeing her. Here are some things I appreciate about her medical care: first, she’s brilliant and has a depth of knowledge that I’ve not encountered with many other physicians in the past; next, she’s open-minded and willing to do research if she doesn’t know something initially; and finally, she’s a good listener and tenacious in working things through to find solutions to complex problems. My situation has been somewhat complex but she’s continued to work with me and guide me along the path.
Now I’m happy to report that I feel better than I have in over 30 years and results on blood tests and hormone tests are finally going in the right direction, too! I’m very thankful for Dr. Thomas’s care and highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling and suffering with symptoms that aren’t being addressed by other traditional medical doctors.
I have been extremely impressed by Dr. Thomas’s care. I first saw Dr. Thomas for Type 3 Alzheimer’s dementia caused by Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) from exposure to a water-damaged building. Over the last several years, Dr. Thomas has effectively treated, guided, and motivated me through the complicated Shoemaker protocol with excellent results. I have been impressed with her knowledge of research and the latest treatments for cognitive decline.
Dr. Thomas’s clinical skills are superb! She ordered thorough nutritional assessment testing that I have never had done in 71 years of my life. The testing revealed significant deficiencies and imbalances. Dr. Thomas advised me on changes in my diet and nutritional supplementations that have significantly improved my health, memory, and symptoms of depression.
I started seeing Dr. Thomas in January 2019. I was worried and somewhat reluctant to see her, but did so after hanging from a thread and desperate! I was sick and had been for five years, with no answers. Medications did not alleviate any of my symptoms. It’s now April 29, 2019 and I’m feeling so much better! My brain fog has lifted, I’m exercising, and feeling much better. I still have a little ways to go but I wake up rested and with a smile, instead of in pain and trying to make it through the day! Thank you, Dr. Thomas, for saving my life and helping me get the old me back!
Dr. Thomas’s many medical talents include additional training in female issues. For me, this included treatment with bio-identical hormone therapy after menopause. As a prior nursing researcher, I have been impressed with her knowledge of the latest treatments for menopause.
I am very thankful for Dr. Thomas. I originally started seeing her for Bio-identical hormone replacement. She ordered comprehensive blood work and a saliva hormone test which gave a good overall picture of my health.
During our appointment I explained to Dr. Thomas that I was getting some other tests through a gastroenterologist for a nagging gastro issue—one being excessive uncontrollable belching. Dr. Thomas mentioned several other symptoms and asked me if I was experiencing them. I was amazed because she was on target with each symptom. She then asked if I had been exposed to mold in a water damaged building recently. The light bulb went off and I explained that I had recently joined a gym which had water leaks and have been going there four times a week. She told me that I had classic biotoxin illness symptoms.
She prescribed medication as well as additional instructions and I set up a follow up appointment in eight weeks. After two weeks my digestive symptoms were completely gone and my constant belching greatly decreased.
I am so thankful I found Dr. Thomas and I am looking forward to wellness again! By the way, regarding the several medical tests scheduled with the gastroenterologist at MUSC, I cancelled them because with Dr. Thomas’s help I finally got the relief I was hoping for.
Dr. Thomas has been instrumental in helping me in my recovery from mold injury. She is attentive, professional and always knowledgeable in every aspect of my treatment. Since working with her, I have recovered well and learned the protocol for living with CIRS. I can recommend her wholeheartedly. She is an exceptional doctor.
