Experiences

 

Here’s what clients are saying.

I didn’t think that I needed a doctor, I considered myself really healthy, and rarely did I ever visit a doctor, then I was introduced to Dr Mary, WOW was I ever wrong!!!

The poor sleeping habits, the regular night-time heartburn, the weight gain which I put down to Covid, to name just a few of the conditions that I thought were not such a big deal, were conditions which Dr Mary has very quickly and completely eliminated, and I feel fantastic!
Her scientific approach to health – and just to be clear there are no chemical drugs in her bag! – is a proactive, natural approach, combined with lifestyle, exercise and diet!
She is attentive, very likeable and constant in her delivery, I now understand why I am who I am and what makes me tick, I have found the process fascinating and understandable.
I made sure that she is now working with my entire family!

I came to Mary feeling helpless and not sure I’d ever find someone who could help me with my insomnia, which I’ve struggled with for 12 years. After working with her for a month, I’ve not only been sleeping better but actually slept straight through a full night recently. That hasn’t happened in 5 years.

On top of helping me sleep, Mary has opened up an entire new path for me to optimize my health in every facet. And that is, in fact, how she helped me sleep better: by looking at the entire picture of my current state of health and all of my life patterns.

Mary is, by far, the most comprehensive, intelligent, friendly health optimization practitioner I’ve ever worked with, and there have been many. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Dr Pines is providing me a much, much better awareness of my biological makeup and how I can improve on it on the molecular level – targeting my cells and their needs to stay healthy and alive.

Dr Pines is like a personal trainer for the inside of my body!

All can benefit from working Dr Pines – hers is a personalized service, specific to you. She is your personal trainer, on a cellular level!

You want to work with Dr Pines because she is a PhD who works at the highest level to understand your body’s needs, your genetic makeup, and everything that can help make you feel and live better.

Some of the results I’ve seen since working with her for 3 months: my gut health and bowel movements were way better, my sleep – which I always struggled with – is incredible, I have WAY more energy (maybe too much!) and I’m not as hungry as I used to be, so I eat less and I eat foods I  now know are best for my body.

Thank you Dr Pines!!

Entrepreneur, Restauranteur, Athlete. Whistler, BC, Canada.

Western medicine can leave me feeling unsupported, and has failed to address my issues.

Seeing any single practitioner can’t address my nutritional or other needs to the depth I require, the depths to which Mary works.

Working with Mary means having access to information not readily available to most people. Her passion for science, biohacking, nutrition, human optimization and so much more has given her the edge in addressing deep underlying issues that other medical approaches would never have uncovered. Hers is the most thorough method of addressing one’s whole health, in a holistic and fully supportive way.

Above all, Mary is incomparably dynamic: most people don’t have access or insight into the newest science and health trends, nor would they be able to decipher their legitimacy or utility. However, Mary uses her extensive education and experience to filter and distill the exact information required to create systems which can help anybody.

Her thorough, all-encompassing approach incorporates all of the elements needed to create a successful path to optimal health, incorporating the right balance of discipline, flexibility, independence and so much more.
