“Dear Oprah and Dr. Oz,
I have to tell you about Dr. John Foley and why you need to meet him. Dr. Foley has developed and pioneered his own cutting-edge Advanced Bio-Energetic Testing system, is a top-rated doctor in New York State for reversing Thyroid problems naturally and has been interviewed and published multiple times in Natural Awakenings Magazine for his expertise on environmental toxicity. Here’s my story. I was getting migraine headaches 3 times a week for months, had been irregular with my cycle for as long as I can remember, had low energy, back pain, experiencing forgetfulness, and had difficulty losing weight. I had an MRI one week prior to meeting Dr. Foley and nothing was found. I had my blood taken and was tested for allergies and the results said I did not have any. So I made an appointment with Dr. Foley. He directly tested my body’s “electrical system” which revealed that I was allergic to wheat, corn and cheese, and that I had a very high level of Chlorine toxicity in my body. The Chlorine was affecting the health and function of my Thyroid gland and several other organs. This also affected my ability to digest food. After six months of changing my diet, filtering my water, and taking specific vitamins to detox the Chlorine from my body, all my symptoms were gone and I lost 30 pounds! I have never felt better or healthier in my life! Every one of Dr. Foley’s patients at BodyCures has different versions of the same success story. He has helped other patients with depression, joint pains, arthritis, parasites, allergies, asthma, autism, ADHD, high blood pressure, skin conditions, fatigue and infertility just to name a few. People from all over the world have come to see him. When traditional medicine has failed them, he has been able to help and offer hope. Dr. Foley is truly a one of a kind doctor. I really hope you will consider having him on your show!” ~ Kathryn Beaton (October 2010 – Yonkers, NY)
“Dear Dr. John – Words fail me when it has come to express my heartfelt thanks for all you have done for me. It is said that when you find the place of greatest peace, you stop looking. My search has ended where my life change began. My deepest appreciation.” ~ Geraldine O’Donnell (arrived from Ireland on April 13, 2010 – followed up via long distance consultations)
“When I first came to BodyCures, I had migraines that lasted from 6-7 days at a time, one or two times a month. Now, when I get a migraine, it is usually 2-3 days and the pain is less intense. I also have a better feel for what my triggers are and am learning to avoid them. I feel stronger now and have fewer days in pain which gives me more energy and time to do the things I want to do. I am grateful to BodyCures for their work with me in boosting my strength and overall health.” ~ Marilee B. (Owner and Publisher of Natural Awakenings Magazine – Westchester / Putnam / Dutchess NY)
“Please let Dr. John know that I feel a tremendous difference after my visit yesterday from how I felt before and after. I’m going to call John “The Miracle Worker” from now on because I felt so horrible before he saw me yesterday, and the difference is just miraculous.” ~ Eileen F. (September 2012 – Mount Kisco, NY)
Thyroid specialist – Dr. John Foley is rated a top doctor in New York State
“My 15 year old daughter was going to various doctors for over 6 years and some were considered to be the best endocrinologists and physicians in metro New York City but nothing they tried ever helped her. She was told she had hypothyroid and insulin resistance and was diagnosed last year with Hashimoto’s disease. Ever since she was nine she suffered from terrible weekly migraines, severe hair loss, irritability, depression, stubborn weight gain as she was 80 lbs overweight, and always had extreme fatigue. For years we tried medical doctors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, nutritionists, metabolic type diets, etc. and nothing ever worked. We were left hopeless and told by her medical doctors that she would have to live with it for the rest of her life and they just put her on a high dose of Synthroid that did not do anything. Thank God we found Dr. John Foley of the Nutritional Healing Center in Northern Westchester. I heard from my girlfriend that people go see him from all over for the special work he does to find the underlying cause of various health problems, especially thyroid issues. Dr. Foley found what nobody else could find. He does a lot of interesting tests and really looks at the environment as a major cause of health problems and found that my daughter suffered from Chlorine Toxicity that measured high in her thyroid gland and that was interfering with her ability to heal. He also found a viral situation as it related to her thyroid and he targeted special supplements to help her body remove the Chlorine and get her body systems healing again. In only one week, she lost 8 pounds, had no headaches for the first time in years, her energy and mood became so much better and her hair stopped falling out. It’s now been 3 months and I finally have my daughter back! Her energy is great, she is more outgoing and no longer irritable, the depression is completely gone, her beautiful hair is growing in thicker and not falling out like it once did.” (May 2008)
“I just came across your website here and I had a definite need to write about one of the best kept secrets in New York State as far as I’m concerned. His name is Dr. John Foley and he was actually able to get my body healing again for the first time in 22 years! I am a 51 year old female that lived with hypothyroidism and stubborn abdominal weight gain since I was 29 years old with absolutely no hope whatsoever from 14 other doctors including well known medical endocrinologists from the tri-state area. Please don’t get me wrong. Every doctor I went to wanted to really help me and did their very best to get me well based on what they learned by using standard blood tests (which always showed that my thyroid was fine by the way). As much as they all tried, when I look back in the past those other doctors simply did not have the knowledge, expertise, and testing ability that Dr. Foley had. Dr. Foley is absolutely amazing and has real answers and solutions to those of us suffering from an undiagnosed low thyroid. As soon as he found that my thyroid gland was full of Chlorine and Fluoride toxicity I knew that I was finally in the right office as I had suspected this all along based on my own research. My healing did not happen immediately as it took around 10 and a half months to get all the Chlorine toxicity out of my thyroid gland which was probably a lifetime of exposure and thankfully I was very patient during the process and I’m so happy that I was. As soon as all the Chlorine left my body I immediately felt years younger and that I had control over my life and health again. It was as if my metabolism was reset or something as I started to lose the stubborn weight very quickly just like I was a teenager again! The iodine fulfillment therapy that he gave me kicked in nicely once my chlorine levels we lowered with certain liquid medical herbs. His brilliance and ability to help me gave me real hope that thyroid conditions can in fact be reversed naturally. As a nurse, this was a huge transformation for me that I never learned was even possible in my schooling. I would have to say that the best feeling of all is that everyone that I have ever referred to Dr. Foley for a suspected low thyroid is amazed at their own results and health achievements. It feels so good to help others that have gone through the same thing that I have for years. Thank you for such a great website and informing others like me!” (July 2008 – Dr. John Foley rated as top thyroid doctor)
Blessing to our family
“Dr. Foley, I will be forever grateful for the day I stepped into your office and began this journey to health. Keep the picture of my kids someplace where you can see it often enough so you’ll never forget why you do what you do. I love each of my children dearly and will never regret having a big family, but the demands of being a mom to so many combined with terrible health left me to be merely a shadow of a mother to my kids. I was in scary bad shape this time last year. I didn’t want to live anymore if it meant just struggling to make it through each day. I’m so grateful for the knowledge God has given you and your willingness to learn. You are more than a blessing to our family. We may have to stow you away in our luggage if we move because I can’t imagine life without you.” ~ Heather Waldvogel and family (August 2010 – Dover Plains, NY)
“Because of Dr. John and his wonderful staff, my children Sarah and Zack no longer suffer from Asthma or ADHD and they are now among the healthiest kids around. My children have been to a number of specialists who were suppose to be the best of the best in New York but they never helped my kids they way Dr. John could. Dr. John is a gifted healer and educator and will surely help tons of people overcome adversity. God Bless you John and all that you do for our community!!!” ~ Kim M. (February 2008 – Yorktown Heights, NY)
“Dr. Foley, I think that I have been waiting for the right words to come to me, the right words to express how grateful I am for you and what you have helped me through. But I realized today that those words will never come – they will never come because they do not exist. ‘Thank You’ is wholly inadequate to convey the depth of my gratitude. ‘Thank You’ does not reveal the enormity of what a blessing your work has been. ‘Thank You’ does not count the number of tears from which you have spared me. ‘Thank You’ does not paint a grand enough picture of how open my heart is to life now that I am healthy. But that is all I have to give you – gratitude, blessings, a smile born from joy, an open heart… and a ‘Thank You’.” ~ Janani Urreta (2011)
Something finally worked
“Before doing the BodyCures Whole Food Detox Cleanse, I felt horrible! I had gained 20+ lbs. over two years and felt bloated, constipated, and could not lose weight. I had poor sleep habits and was feeling depressed. In just 21 days, I feel so much better! I have lost 10 lbs and am sleeping through the night. My digestion has improved and I am feeling happier and less lethargic. My bloating has lessened and I am hopeful that all of the symptoms continue to improve. My diet feels healthier and people are noticing how much better I look and feel!” ~ Allison W. (Read Dr. Foley’s Article on Stubborn Weight Gain)
“I was very tired when I started seeing Dr. John Foley of The Nutritional Healing Center Inc. (now BodyCures), I started coming due to lack of energy and difficulty losing weight. At that time I was experiencing episodes with irregular heart beats. I also experienced frequent acid reflux and frequent headaches. NOW, my energy has greatly improved. I no longer am having heart palpitations. My friends have said that my skin looks so much brighter and healthier. The headaches are gone and I no longer experience acid reflux. I am very pleased.” ~ Frieda M. (June 2007 – Manhattan, NY)
“Before I came to the Nutritional Healing Center in 2007, I had aches in joints and odd ball pain during running and athletic activity. I tried everything and had no idea on how to handle it. Now I feel fantastic! I have lots of energy without any attention on my body as I know that I am getting the proper nutrition. I’m an athlete and I feel better now than I have over the last 15 or so years. You’re the best Dr. Foley!” ~ Dave L. (September 2007 – 44 years young, Westchester, NY Golf Pro)
We had nothing to lose
“I was a total medical disaster when I came to see Dr. John Foley. My husband and I just wanted a baby so very much. After all the failed fertility treatments and thousands of dollars spent the medical community told me our dream of a family would never happen. We were devastated and left hopeless. A friend referred us to Dr. Foley and we figured we had nothing to lose. We were probably the most skeptical patients Dr. Foley ever had, and he stuck with us. We were astonished that he found very high levels of Mercury and Aluminum in my reproductive area considering that I felt great! It made so much sense to my husband and I that this was probably the reason why I wasn’t able to get pregnant in the first place. Dr. Foley helped my body repair and get healthy over the course of 8-9 months so it could handle getting pregnant. Through Dr. Foley’s specific testing, I looked forward to watching the levels of mercury and aluminum come out of my body each visit. Little Patricia turns one next month! I still tell everyone that my nutritional doctor got me pregnant! They giggle, but we just look at our child and thank God everyday. He does very special work.” ~ Julia J. (Fairfield, CT – 28 yrs old, trusted us with 7 referrals of family and friends)
“Before I came to The Nutritional Healing Center in Yorktown Heights, NY (now BodyCures), my psoriasis really bothered me and I was having stomach problems. Now, I feel so much healthier! Since Dr. John Foley started removing the Mercury and Lead he found in my body, my psoriasis is really beginning to clear up, and I am better able to digest foods. I don’t have bloating anymore and feel like I have more energy too. This system of healing is amazing and makes so much sense. He was the only doctor that found the underlying cause of all my problems.” ~ Casey M. (July 2007 – White Plains, NY)
Being a skeptic by nature
“I just wanted to let you know how excited I am about not only the incredible results I’ve received from Dr. Foley’s recommendations, but also how quickly I received them. I had my first appointment about one year ago at the request of my husband and decided not to engage in treatment partially because being a skeptic by nature and a scientist/educator by trade; I wasn’t convinced that it would work. I needed facts; I needed to see for myself. The other reason I decided not to engage is the distance. I travel from New Haven, CT and it’s at least 5 hours out of my day in total. I just didn’t have the time to start a process I wasn’t sure about. Now let me tell you what finally made me decided to start coming… my husband Joe has had back problems, severe sciatica and lower abdominal pain for about 4 years. We have been on many Doctor appointments together with no results at all. What we did get was fluid tests of every variety, one invasive procedure and a request for another (which he denied), multiple X-Rays, Cat-Scans, MRI’s, 2 cortisone shots, prescription pills with horrible side effects and finally… what everyone wants to hear the least: you have 2 choices… 1.) You’ll just have to live with it (which wasn’t an option if you know my husband) or 2.) Surgery, which was out of the question as well. He made his first appointment with Dr. John Foley about 1 year ago and within 30 days saw a huge difference and has been pain free and symptom free shortly thereafter till this day. After witnessing the results, I decided to commit. I have had low energy, high blood pressure, frequent headaches and crippling hip pain for over 3 years. I was tired of controlling my high blood pressure with prescription pills, the x-rays show nothing wrong with my hip and pain killers didn’t offer any relief. None of the doctors I saw offered any hope. I started seeing Dr. Foley 4 weeks ago and my hip pain was 90% better within 2 weeks. My lifestyle is hectic, having two kids involved in many activities, and a full time job. I needed to be both pain-free and have the energy to keep up that pace and now I feel it’s possible. My only regret is that I didn’t start the process a year ago when my husband did. My recommendation to anyone who has had lingering health problems and low energy, but wants to feel better and look better is to not give up when you are told “There’s no cure, you’ll just have to live with it.” Make that first appointment and stick to it.” ~ Wendy M. (August 2010 – New Haven, CT)
“Whenever I saw my Chiropractor in Manhattan in the past, which was once a month for bad neck pains, I needed an adjustment. Now, when I see my Chiropractor, his whole office staff is amazed because I have not needed an adjustment since February! That’s almost 9 months of stability. It goes without saying, that my neck pains have been gone the same time span, too. My neck and back feels really strong.” ~ Ron K. (April 2004 – Manhattan, NY)
I am so happy since seeing Dr. Foley
“I felt stress and unhappiness when my medical doctor told me I had high blood pressure. My doctor wanted to put me on medicine that he said I would be on until I die. He told me to eat right and exercise but did not offer natural or holistic medicine. NOW I am so happy since seeing Dr. Foley. My stress & high blood pressure are going down and I’m learning how to eat healthy foods, read labels and walk for exercise.” ~ Loveria L. (September 2005 – Katonah, NY)
“Before seeing Dr. John Foley I had chronic constipation and bad eczema breakout’s. Even though I had been engaged in physical fitness 1-3 time weekly, I was tired — fatigued and constantly bloated. I craved salt and ice constantly and ate a bag of ice daily. NOW, after the first week of taking whole food nutrition based on my exact profile I began feeling better such as increased energy, and DAILY bowel movements. I no longer crave salt or bags of ice. In addition I don’t have any more breakouts! I love how I feel!” ~ Rebecca S. (January 2007 – Baltimore, MD)
“I was tired, had swelling in my feet and very bad facial acne. My body thought I was older than I was. I balance many roles. I work full-time for a telecommunications company, work at two gyms teaching classes and I am a single parent. I need my body to work efficiently to complete all my tasks. However NOW… all major symptoms have completely cleared up and I am very happy that I am getting my clear skin back. I have more energy and no swelling in my feet. I am amazed with the energy level and it has helped me to go through my daily activities WITHOUT any fatigue. Thank you Dr. Foley!” ~ Audrey H. (November 2006 – Chappaqua, NY)
The 2 hour drive was so worth it
“Dr. John Foley is fantastic and has resolved various health issues with me such as food cravings, indigestion, fatigue, anemia, parasites, and hormones. My biggest delight is when he resolved my parasites issue, all my muscle stiffness that I experienced in the mornings was gone and continues to be gone. The 2 hour drive from New Jersey to Yorktown Heights was so worth it. It is an investment in my current and future health path. Oh, yes, my husband also sees Dr. Foley and he has his own success stories, so he is not for women only! Try him; you might be surprised how simple it is to reclaim one’s health.” ~ Delores C. (April 2007 – Princeton, NJ)
“I was constantly fatigued and in severe pain from osteoarthritis. I was having difficulty also dealing with severe Fibromyalgia; it seemed like I had layers of pain. None of the doctors or diets I tried in the past ever helped. NOW after 6 weeks the pain has diminished to a very tolerable level and I have had more energy. I am able to tend my garden on the weekend and handle more household chores that I have been avoiding. Dr. John Foley of Yorktown Heights, NY was the only doctor I know of that tested for and found Mercury and Aluminum in my body that was causing my severe pain.” ~ Alice R. (March 2008, 49 years young, trusted us with 11 referrals of family and friends)
I was tired all day long
“I was tired all day long, from the time I got out of bed until it was time to go to bed. I wasn’t feeling good at all. By 5:00 pm on Friday after a long week I just wanted to sleep the entire weekend, just to hopefully get ready for another hard week. NOW, after just one week, by 5:00 pm I was singing and dancing and ready for a great fun weekend and looked forward to work again on Monday. I felt good for the first time in many years. I can’t wait to see how I feel, if the first week is just an indication, I will feel after I am finished with the program. Thank You Dr. Foley!” ~ Pamela P. (October 2007, 41 years young, mother of 4 boys, and a child day care provider)
“I had terrible stomach cramps at least once a month. They could last up to 5 days. They were so bad that I usually had to go to bed. I had allergies and asthma too. The medicines caused my blood pressure to rise. I was facing having to be treated for high blood pressure. I took 3 pills daily. Now, I haven’ t had any cramps for a few months and haven’t taken the pills on a regular basis in almost a month.” ~ Wendy C. (December 2006 – Los Angeles, CA)
“Since starting your program Dr. Foley, I am sleeping much better and I have much more energy. The funny ache in my back that I’ve had for a very long time which made me feel a bit weak and not able to stand for long is GONE! I noticed it was gone because one day I was standing for about an hour and didn’t even think of sitting down!” ~ Sharon M. (January 2008, 39 years young, trusted us with 8 referrals of family and friends)
Dr. John Foley found what everyone else missed
“I had considerable confusion in the past because certain supplements I tried worked once or twice and then stop, plus some things would do the opposite of what they should. It was very frustrating. Dr. John Foley found what everyone else missed – that my body’s electrical system was not healing correctly! Now there is a finally a real light at the end of the tunnel. And already I’m doing much better & really improving. I’m very excited so far!” ~ Tony R. (April 2006, 57 years young, trusted us with 12 referrals of family and friends)
“It was horrible — I had psoriasis on my knees, elbows, legs, hairline, behind my ears and all over my stomach and all over my hips. Almost completely gone (at the 5th office visit) ALL over. YEAH!! Everyone I referred had similar results.” ~ Barbara B. (March 2009, 43 years young, trusted us with 6 referrals of family and friends)
I dreaded work and my life
“I work at a hospital with long days. I would literally come home and fall into bed. My Saturdays were spent sleeping and lying around. My daughter would know that she would only have Sundays to maybe do something together. I dreaded work and my life. My health problems were not only affecting me but also my entire family. NOW I feel years younger. I can not believe the difference. I am a nurse and I don’t quite understand the whole dynamics of Bio-Energetic Medicine or The BodyCures Healing System (BHS), but I do understand the results. I finally have my health and life back again and I am truly thankful to Dr. Foley. Thank You!” ~ Mary G. (47 years young, Registered Nurse, after 4 months on her designed clinical nutrition program)
“I’m writing this to let you know of a positive result thru your efforts to lower my high liver enzymes. Please share it with anyone. Coincidentally, my yearly check-up blood work was ordered just before my scheduled appointment with you. The MD made an appointment to discuss the results. She was concerned with the high liver enzyme reading the blood work showed. She had even written me a prescription for a liver MRI. (I didn’t know there was such a thing!). She wanted me to wait a couple of weeks & have a second blood test to confirm before the MRI. During my appointment with you, I told you of the test results & you did your organ reflex testing scan. You said I should take a specific whole food supplements that was a perfect match for me in order to help my liver heal itself. I did this for 3 weeks before the second blood work was done. The MD just called me to say the results of the second blood test show NO elevation of the liver enzymes! It’s always nice to have a before and after blood test to show the disbelievers. Thank you very much!” ~ Margery W. (October 2008, 49 years young, trusted us with 8 referrals of family and friends)
“My new boyfriend, who is a surgical nurse, has cats. I was very allergic to them, experiencing sneezing, itchy eyes, wheezing, chest congestion, bronchitis and asthma. Through your testing we discovered I was allergic to one cat (Suzie). Dr. John Foley was able to clear the allergies with ONE treatment! I returned to my boyfriend’s house two days later and did not sneeze once! The wheezing, itchy eyes and other symptoms were completely gone! My boyfriend was so impressed; he immediately booked an appointment with Dr. Foley. Thank you so much!” ~ Diane D. (March 2007, 38 years young, Registered Nurse)
“I am very pleased to tell you about my recent appointment at the VA Outpatient Clinic. The VA doctor couldn’t get over the improvement in my blood. “Better than better” were her words. She was very pleased as both the liver and kidneys showed marked improvement. Thank you. I’m sure this good news is a result of being on your program, and I’d like to thank everyone at BodyCures.” ~ Rod C. (2010)
Marked improvement in mass
“I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in August 2009. Multiple Myeloma is Cancer of the bone marrow that arises when plasma cells become malignant, invade the marrow, multiply uncontrollably, and disrupt normal bone function (www.mskcc.org). At the time of diagnosis, I had surgery to remove some of the tumor in the sacrum of the spine and then underwent radiation to stabilize the cancer. I have an MRI done every 6 months to check the status of my condition. From completion of my radiation up until 2011 the MRI showed that the mass was still present but not active, therefore placing me in remission. In early 2012, my daughter recommended that I get treated at BodyCures to further improve my health. Several months later, in July 2012, I had a PET Scan done from head to toe. I was delighted to hear that the cancer has not spread and that the results showed marked improvement in the mass! This is the first time in the past 3 years that any MRI or PET Scan has stated any kind of improvement. I feel strongly that BodyCures’ recommendation of proper supplements and nutrition has helped me achieve these results. I look forward to continuing my treatment and improving my health with BodyCures!” ~ Sebastian L. (September 2012) – Full body PET Scan report from the radiologist states, “The hyper-metabolic sacral mass noted on the prior study has resolved. Marked improvement in the sacrum. No PET scan evidence of residual viable malignancy in this region.” (Sebastian’s testimonial)
“I AM IN REMISSION!!!!! WITH A Stage 4 incurable cancer!!!!!!!” ~ Susan B. (August 2014 – Bethel, CT)
“I felt like my body was falling apart but it shouldn’t because I am an active person. I was tired of hearing from doctors that I shouldn’t be having kidney issues because of my age ‘that’s just how your body is.’ I was tired, forgetful, back pains, kidney stones, gallbladder stones, eyes watering and ringing in my ears. Simple terms: a mess. Within the past 2 months my head felt clearer but more importantly I felt no back pain or painful indigestion. The oils and food choices have helped tremendously. I am grateful to have the opportunity to speak about real solutions and realistic ways to keep my body healthy. I have learned to listen to my body and question when I’m not feeling well instead of accepting feeling terrible because of my age or ‘that must be how my body handles issues’. It’s been 1 year and 6 months and I feel great and continue to visit remotely with the BodyCures’ group.” ~ Lisa H.
“Chronic Fatigue slowed me down for more years than I want to count. Over the last 7 years, I suffered with debilitating fatigue and constant pain that moved throughout my entire body, joint pain, muscle pain, weakness, and at times migraine headaches. My legs would hurt and burn just from standing a short time. Medical specialists I saw in the past could only offer drugs, trigger point injections, and pain patches, and these just took the edge off the pain. Finding BodyCures (formerly Nutritional Healing Center) was an answer to my prayers. It’s AMAZING how much my energy level improved after just a few weeks of treatment. I was even able to drive over an hour to my appointments. The trips were well worth it! In weeks following, pain in my lower back began to ease up, then left completely. BodyCures truly cares. They are pleasant, professional and courteous. Thanks to them, I’m on the road to healing!” ~ Tricia D.
