2013: Please read the post in it’s entirety in addition to the comment section below for new information that has come to light since we attended the center in 2008. The facility we went to and wrote about is no longer open. To my knowledge we never met with Dr. Anubrolu and this doctor would need further due diligence on your part if you were to seek treatment. Original post and comments are included below:
2013: About William Walsh
In regards to Pfeiffer Treatment Center that we attended. There was an announcement on the website and each patient received a personal letter and an introduction to Wyndgate Health. The message read as follows:
“In an effort to assist each family with continued care, we are pleased to also announce that Wyndgate Health, St. Paul, Minnesota, has agreed to provide care to you going forward. Wyndgate Health is staffed by Pfeiffer Treatment Center Certified practitioners, and headed by Laura McDaniel, RN and former Pfeiffer Treatment Center staff member and Pfeiffer Methodology Trainer.
The Pfeiffer Treatment Center and Wyndgate Health share the same mission, and we are confident that the transfer of Pfeiffer Treatment Center patient records to Wyndgate Health facility will help ensure continuity of care. You may contact Wyndgate Health for additional information, appointments, follow-up support, prescription refills and record transfers.”
Unfortunately, as the above states, the center we attended has been closed. That was perhaps much of the reason we didn’t feel that we got much from our visit to the treatment center in IL. There were as previously stated, some deficiencies in the test results and we did find that a diagnosis of pyroluria was given, but once we returned home we failed to keep a connection with the clinic.
It was quite expensive to visit and my husband and I felt finances could be better spent elsewhere. In our case, the supplements did not particularly help any better than an over the counter variety and actually the compounding of multiple vitamins together seemed to not be a good combination for B. Supplementing daily with the pills tended to make his behavior worse rather than better. We have since found that for us, a rotating schedule works much better. While he may require a supplement such as iron daily over a 2-3 week period, we need to stop when he has reached a stable level again. This is the same for zinc, vitamin C, and especially fish oils as they give him quite serious eczema. I no longer believe that in our case a daily dose requirement is a good idea as my son seems a slow detoxer. Supplements have a tendency to build up in his system. We do treat with methylated B12 and glutathione to help him detox, but again he does not require this as a constant. So for us that part of the treatment was good to know but not really helpful in the long term. What we did get though was some good information about his allergies/intolerance’s and ideas for further progress so it was a worthwhile trip initially. As I said before when I initially posted about the clinic ” I guess, that overall our trip, while informative and diagnostically helpful on some levels has not proven to be the silver bullet that we desired. So in all probability we will not continue to work with this clinic; however if they were closer chances are we would still be in full swing.”
This was an additional email I received: After repeated requests from patients and families, Dr. Anubrolu will open the Pfeiffer Medical Center on October 1, 2011.
“For those Pfeiffer patients who have not received care from Dr. Anubrolu, she is a graduate of Guntur Medical College in India and completed her Internal Medicine residency at St. Joseph Hospital – Northwestern University in Chicago. Dr. Anubrolu has extensive experience with nutrients and supplements and she has a strong belief in nutrition as the key element on physical and mental well being. Dr. Anubrolu, a Pfeiffer trained physician since 2009, feels blessed to be part of the healing process in her patient’s lives.
If you need to reach Dr. Anubrolu, her telephone numbers are 866-504-6076 or 630-505-0300. The Pfeiffer Medical Center address is 4575 Weaver Parkway, Warrenville, IL 60555.”
**apparently, the name The Pfeiffer Medical Clinic lives on, the treatment center is not affiliated in any other way than by name only. We apologize for any confusion, and the one email introducing Dr. Anubrolu is the only information I have on the clinic. I guess at this point, my best advice would be either contact The Walsh Research Institute or Mensah Medical in regards to a referral or doctor who is well versed in these protocols.
