My patients’ personal stories present their success in their own words.
A co-worker shared Cherri’s contact information with me. I have suffered with digestive issues for years with no true relief. I started seeing Cherri 3 months ago. I have experienced significant digestion healing in this short time than I have had in years. After my first visit I left feeling “hopeful” that she would be able to help me. I am so very thankful to have found her and can not say enough about how she has improved my life in such a short time.

I came to Cherri Schleicher because of a compromised immune system. She listened thoroughly, she guided me to make simple changes a couple at a time in order for me to be in control of my own healing journey. Cherri took my entire, in-depth health history into account, using a holistic approach. Cherri is non-judgmental, a fantastic listener, and has a kind heart. I have referred many people I care about to Cherri.
At my initial appointment, Cherri was very thorough and was the first provider who really listened to my symptoms and concerns. Most were ready to quickly prescribe medication with side effects to deal with health issues. She immediately made a holistic recommendation which helped. After receiving test results, she focused on the root cause of my health issues. I respect her advice and would not be doing as well today if I did not have her as a partner in my health journey.
Cherri is knowledgeable, compassionate, caring and dedicated. She works diligently to determine the root cause by listening intently and using lab results to help to create an effective care plan designed to meet the specific needs of the patient. She has a holistic approach to healthcare and it’s evident she truly cares about the health and well being of her patients.
After having my second child in Oct 2017, I felt a huge shift in my overall health. Physically, my fatigue was at an all-time high and though I had complaints of feeling un-well for at least a decade, it was clear that my health was truly spiraling out of control. Emotionally, I was also in a very dark place.
A routine check-up with my PCP in Sept 2018 uncovered classic Hypothyroidism lab results; TSH was 31.7. My PCP explained to me that I would need thyroid medication for the rest of my life. I was met with much opposition at even the mention of natural healing without pharmaceuticals and was told that there was no way I would be able to overcome this without Levothyroxine.
Hopeful that I could heal without medicine, I began researching Functional Medicine and found C&S Holistic. After my initial conversation with Cherri, I left full of optimism and quite hopeful that with a positive lifestyle change under Cherri’s guidance, we would be able to recover my health. Cherri knew immediately that additional testing was needed and after a full thyroid panel, it was discovered that my antibody levels were elevated; TPO was 2231. This uncovered the true cause of my Hypothyroidism – Hashimoto’s disease and an inflammatory response in the body. We immediately put a plan together and after 10 months of eliminating gluten and processed sugars, along with introducing many supplements and herbs and taking measures to reduce stress, I am feeling so much better and my labs have improved drastically. As of June of 2019, Antibodies are 233, TSH 4.2. This journey has been challenging yet rewarding but having Cherri’s support and guidance in the healing process has been monumental in my progress. I can’t thank her enough for her insights and deep understanding of root cause and path to healing.
