My experience with Dr. Wengenroth has been entirely positive. Since I had to deal with allergic symptoms shortly after birth, no real allergy was ever found. In the course of my life, more and more inexplicable symptoms appeared, I did not fit into any pattern. At the age of 18 I experienced my first real relapses, but they were not recognized as allergic symptoms. I was again chased through a great many examinations, but with no clear result. After the relapses subsided, I was able to go back to a "normal" life until I had my first anaphylaxis of unclear origin at age 22. It just happened in the middle of the night and was inexplicable to the doctors around me. After that, my life changed completely. I had so many symptoms every day and suddenly reacted to everything. I came across the topic of histamine through my own research and had some tests done, whereupon I was diagnosed with "genetic histamine intolerance". This already explained the increased symptoms in my family. However, since I could not achieve any great improvement through a pure change in diet (low histamine, dairy-free, gluten-free, etc.), I started looking again and came across MCAS. I read up on the subject and went through the diagnostic workup by Dr. Molderings. Through my many examinations, many things could already be ruled out. This made me relatively quickly during Corona times on the search for a doctor and came to Dr. Wengenroth and her holistic approach appealed to me very much. Quick info: if you are local and have problems with fragrances, no problem either, as the practice is careful about fragrances. I was very excited when I went to the appointment, because I could not think of so many options instead. The first impression was already super and also the treatment itself and the first examinations have already helped me a lot. Dr. Wengenroth was pretty quickly sure that MCAS was present, also because of my history. After a long search for a diagnosis, I finally had one and no longer felt as lost as all the years before, where I didn't really fit in anywhere. Initially, I was adjusted with medication, which already allowed me to stabilize. I had already changed my diet. But it was not only about medication, which was very important to me personally, but also about other causes for my strong mast cell activation. I finally got treatment and much more. Dr. Wengenroth takes you seriously with your symptoms and listens to you and looks for explanations. Through many treatments on a physical and also psychological level (very important for me personally, only through this could I achieve a lasting stabilization!!) within a few years (everything slowly and with a lot of patience) I find more and more to myself and in my peace (a peace that I did not know before). I have felt my whole life rearranged. It is & allowed so much to be in flux. I used to want to go back to my old life, but I was allowed to realize that something much better is allowed to come out of this life-threatening situation. Dr. Wengenroth has also accompanied me on this path so far. I have an appointment with her every half year or so at the moment. I inform and do a lot on my own, but the common adjustment and also collecting new ideas/approaches and clarifying questions every half year is very important for me. I am very grateful that I found Dr. Wengenroth on my way. She is a great doctor and can only be recommended!!!
P.S.: Of course there are also ups and downs on this path. There are always relapses and sometimes worse phases (initial deterioration due to new therapies through detoxification, new nutritional supplements, which initially trigger new processes, etc.), but these are much easier and I get them under control myself with my toolbox. I haven't seen the inside of a hospital in a year, and even otherwise I only see my primary care doctor every few months for a quick update and blood draw. That's a marked difference from before, which I'm incredibly grateful for. It is a path or a journey on which you can learn an incredible amount if you want to. The diagnosis of MCAS (or in my case a few others, some of which have already passed) does not mean the end, but can also lead to a new beginning.
