IS A NEW
Linda Cleary has changed my daughter's life. We have been to many specialists at the best hospitals in Boston and treated by some of the finest medical minds but none of them knew how to change the underlying cause of her symptoms. Linda has traditional medical training and she goes beyond being merely a medical practitioner. Her investigations extend far deeper than symptoms to look at the whole person, their environment, their mental, social and spiritual states to find root causes of illness. Linda takes the time to understand her patients and speaks directly, providing guidance and presenting choices clearly. Most importantly, she cares about her patients. My 12 year old no longer suffers from chronic fatigue, severe back pain, headaches, stomach aches and anxiety, all from SIBO. My daughter has a much more positive regard for her body and understands how her disease functions and how to best care for herself, thanks to Linda. She is transforming not only our daughter's health, but her self esteem and her regard for her physical and spiritual body. Linda came so highly recommended from so many sources and now I understand why, as I continue to refer people to her. She is a gifted healer.
Several years ago my daughter was diagnosed with PCOS. She was quickly given “hormone therapy”, the pill and we were sent on our way. Although that helped tremendously with some of her issues she still suffered and we needed answers. I took her to Dr. Arena and within 15 minutes of meeting with her we had more answers from Dr. Arena than we had in 3 years at Children’s. She was kind, easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and really made my daughter feel as though she wanted to help her. We left the first visit feeling hopeful and with Dr Arena’s help my daughter’s world has completely changed and she is living her happiest healthiest life! Grateful!
Dr. Arena, Thank you so much for all you and your team have done for me. Before I came to see you, I was in so much pain and discomfort I had to quit my job and could not take care of myself. I truly thought I was going to die. I took 2 years of visiting countless doctors, blood work and all kinds of tests and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. I am only 38 years old and with 2 daughters, I was not ready to give up. When I came to your office as suggested by my physical therapist, I was honestly just doing it to check off a box and I was not sure you were going to be able to help me. After you went through my medical history, you said you were going to help me. It's been over 6 months since my first visit with you. I am taking care of my kids, myself, my house and I am working again. I did everything you suggested and every day I wake up and I am not in pain. I go to bed and go through all the things I have accomplished. I am amazed and I truly thought I was not going to make it through that last summer. Thanks to you, I am planning my 40th birthday and my daughter's sweet 15th. Thanking you does not express how grateful I am for finding you.
BE THE LIGHT. I had a sign in the kitchen of our old home, that reminded us daily. Linda Cleary is that light! We have been on a wild journey of pans/pandas/ extensive medical treatments/ mold/ immune system dysfunction/celiac/food allergies. We lost our home and worldly possessions, but we have found faith, hope, grit, and determination. After many years of different doctors and varied treatments, we landed exactly in the spot that we needed to be, right in Linda Cleary’s hands. From the very moment our sickest son met her, it was evident that she would be treating our whole family for mold illness. All five of the members of our immediate family were sick with different issues, but Linda seeks out root causes of dis-ease and illness, rather than treating symptoms. Linda has different ways to treat and heal all of my children. Linda meets my oldest where he is at, with all of his left brain thinking. She uses science and factual knowledge. For my second son, the sickest of our family at the time we met, she uses spiritual healing and her gift for natural treatments. Our third child, our sassy daughter, Linda treats with gut health. All three very different children, and they also require different ways of treating. It’s a speciality that is unlike any other practitioner we have come across. Linda meets us all where we are at, as individuals. She has a bond with my children that is so evident to see. She is light in the world, placed in our community to help heal and fix the dis-ease, in this very moment in time. When I share our journey and tell others how “Miss Linda” has bought my family’s health (physical, emotional, and spiritual) back to us, I cannot help but feel truly blessed. She is light. She is “mythical”. She is our Earth angel!
When I started this program, I honestly didn’t even know what I needed as a solution. I just knew that I wasn’t the best version of myself. I had a lot of anxiety and chronic stress. I had no idea how to truly nourish myself in a way that would be beneficial in the long run. I just thought that my life was just supposed to be like this. I considered people who ate really healthy to be on a whole different level than me and I thought I would never be able to achieve a lifestyle like that. I had a pretty strained relationship with food and my body, it was really at its worst right before I started this program. That has been one of the most important areas of improvement for me, and the one I appreciate the program most for changing. I had a very low energy level, couldn’t make it through the most days without sleeping in the middle of the day and I was constantly tired. I now have never felt as confident as I do now. I am finding myself appreciating and loving my body for what it is. I have a genuine understanding that it’s the only body I’ve got so I might as well treat it right and love it. I’ve always heard others preach a similar motto, however it’s only now that I am finally embracing it. I am so happy I went through this program and although at times it was challenging, I never would have imagined how amazing the results would have been and that’s what makes it worth while. I am the happiest, most productive, and most appreciative that I felt in a while so thank you Linda and the Waves Team!!
I was sick and tired of being tired. I was overweight, in chronic pain, and had terrible GI issues as well as depression. I was in the midst of a divorce and knew I needed help to get my entire life back on track. I felt alone and at my lowest moment thought I might be dying. Now I have my life back! I have an entirely different lifestyle and I am able to focus on all aspects of my well being. Now I sleep, my weight is down and my stress is less. I am now educated about my health and can be active again. I am happy, whole, and confident in who I am. You are all amazing!
