What Is Stacey’s Superpower & Favorite Thing To Do At PEAK
“It is satisfying to see a patient walk through the door feeling hopeless and feel like they have exhausted all of their possible options of ever feeling better (been from specialist to specialist with the problem not being resolved), and we take the extra time to dive deep into finding the root problem of a patient’s issue through extensive testing, bloodwork etc that other doctor’s would not order, and get them feeling better and giving them their quality of life back!”

Who Is Stacey’s Hero Or Person Who Inspires Her?
“My hero is my mom! A few years ago, she battled cancer and kept on getting beaten down but still somehow found the strength to keep on fighting back day after day even on days where she felt like she didn’t have the strength to fight back. I am proud to say she is cancer free now, and she is just a strong and brave woman. She had a hard journey for a few years, but always kept that positive outlook and I just admire how strong she was during her fight.”
Stacey’s Note To You
“I have suffered with migraines and chronic headaches since elementary school. I have been to several neurologists, and on every medication combination you can probably think of but no one was ever able to get to the root of what was causing these headaches/migraines. All testing always came back negative. After Dr. Buddy worked to get to the root of these migraines, we figured out the biggest factor of what was triggering them was the foods I was eating. This was figured out after doing an elimination diet and also doing a healthy eating lifestyle for 6 weeks and not eating foods high in fats, carbs, sugar etc. Prior to Dr. Buddy helping me, I just felt like I was a guinea pig at these neurologists and just throwing me on “cocktails” of different medications month after month with not getting any relief.”
