I met Dr. Pegah from Hempeutics at a city function and never dreamed I would meet someone at this time in our lives when we needed her most!
We have been struggling with my father-in-law (90) who was suffering from dementia, agitation and sleeplessness. He could no longer be cared for at home with home care. Even when we moved him into a wonderful facility where he got better care, his behaviors escalated. His doctor continued to medicate him, but the results were not good. Dad was lethargic and uncommunicative, suffered from agitation with the "sun downing", and he was still not sleeping. We were just beginning to investigate CBD as an alternate treatment for Dad.
Then I met Dr. Pegah who owns Hempeutics. I told her my concerns and she immediately came up with some suggestions. We asked our father's doctor and he was enthusiastic to give it a try. We tried one formula for the daytime to ease agitation and aggressiveness, and one formula to aide in restful sleep. The results were amazing! Dad responded positively within one or two days. He was alert, could hold a conversation (as best as he cold with dementia) and was much more content. The nighttime formula was added a little later. And with some adjustments, it has been showing success and he is sleeping better most nights.
Dr. Pegah will work with the patient, families, care providers, the patient's doctor and, in this case, the owner of the care facility, to adjust the dosage to fit the patient's needs. Gaby has been wonderful fielding my questions and providing excellent service!
I can't express the relief and happiness I feel knowing that our father is off his strong medications, is happier, healthier and more alert than we had seen him in a long time.
Dr. Pegah is knowledgeable and really listens. She is genuinely concerned about the the results and will closely follow up with the care providers. She even plans to visit our dad soon.
I look forward to working with Dr. Pegah and Gaby at Hempeutics, and am also starting to find formulas that are appropriate for my family's own health needs.
