Dr. Tsafrir was excellent and helped me through a really rough period of time. After taking medications for an extended amount of time, my body had adapted and become physically dependent on pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Tsafrir was understanding and worked with me to taper off the medication. I tried many times before myself, but with Dr. Tsafrir’s help I was finally able to do it with relatively no difficulty! I could never have gotten to where I am today without Dr. Tsafrir’s patience, understanding, empathy, and care. I highly recommend her, she is excellent!!
Dr. Tsafrir’s holistic approach was extremely transformative and effective, and I was able to see a significant improvement in my well-being in a relatively short amount of time. Her depth and breadth of knowledge and compassionate care were unparalleled, and the knowledge and skills I gained through working with her will stay with me for the rest of my life. I cannot recommend her enough.
I don’t know where I’d be today without Dr. Tsafrir! She’s compassionate, kind, extremely knowledgeable and up to date on everything that traditional Western medicine isn’t! She really, really listens, gets to the root of your issues and gives a clear plan moving forward. Just knowing I have her in my corner gives me peace and tranquility.
After working with Judy over the last year as a patient, I feel like a totally new person. She was able to transform my mental and physical health dramatically in a relatively short period of time providing me with holistic health benefits that I have never received with other doctors. She is constantly updating her practice with the latest techniques to offer the best care that is available anywhere for a range of mental and physical issues. She has a very patient and non-judgmental manner and will work with you to find the very best solutions available. I always look forward to meeting with her to continue the journey towards complete health and happiness. I cannot recommend her more highly and encourage anyone looking for superior care to contact her anytime.
Dr Judy Tsafrir is a gifted practitioner. I was first drawn to her because of her joint background and practice as a western Medical Doctor and therapist as well as her range of skills in alternative health. The breadth of modalities which she uses as part of client care are quite unique.
I contacted Judy mid 2021 when I was experiencing a form of extreme anxiety that seemed to have come out of left field and overwhelmed my daily life. The work I did with Dr Judy ranged from astrology, to talk therapy, to energetic work. The energetic work in particular was transformative. I started sleeping better and the anxiety subsided. Dr Judy uses many additional resources to back up her sessions. She connected me to new apps, websites, and similar recommended resources to build self resilience. Dr Judy Tsafrir is generous, direct and 100% dedicated to client care.
Judy Tsafrir’s wisdom and guidance enabled me to finally take hold of life-long patterns of behavior that consistently worked against my overall vitality and well-being. Having grown up in an alcoholic family, I wrestled with tendencies that felt hard-wired and resulted in yo-yo compulsions: with sugar, alcohol, carbohydrates and whatever else might be at hand. The immediate effects of weight swings, brain fog and malaise led to cycles of anxiety and remorse that seemed impervious to change. Dr. Tsafrir brought a wholistic understanding to the landscape that I experienced as an acceptance of my account of my experiences, as well as a grounded belief that something else was possible. After a memorable blow-out weekend that included high school and family reunions, I took up her explicit recommendations for diet change, supplements and LDN with real intention. I felt like I had a kind and compassionate partner who enabled me to listen to myself more acutely and stand by these changes. Her passion for what she knows and is learning (as evidenced in her blog) are catching in the best possible way. Under her gentle and encouraging care, I learned patience, self-compassion, consistency and a keen appreciation for the interconnectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit and environment. Soon I undertook a more serious exercise practice. Now, almost a year and a half later, I experience a newfound stability and a kind of virtuous cycle of strength, resilience, flexibility and self-esteem that see to have blossomed as a result of these practices. I cannot recommend Dr. Tsafrir highly enough.

Dr Tsafrir is the most wonderful and innovative Dr I have ever worked with. Her approach is very different than most doctors. She prescribed a diet, supplements, LDN, and other lifestyle changes that have changed my recovery completely. I have a schizoaffective diagnosis ( bipolar disorder and schizophrenia) and had between 10-15 hospitalizations in less than 10 years. I was on the highest dose of an antispychotic shot and mood stabilizer when I started seeing her. I had lost my period, was extremely fatigued, and had akathesia when I started seeing her due to the meds. Through following her protocol I’ve been able to get down to only a quarter of psychiatric meds at this point ( 10 months in) and I’m doing far better mentally now and physically! I’ve lost 40 pounds also! She is extremely invested in her patients well being and doesnt have a limited view of recovery like most psychiatrists do in my opinion. I highly recommend Dr Tsafrir to anyone!!! My advice to anyone that is bold enough to start this recovery journey with her is that the work she has you do is 100% worth it just give yourself a chance!!!
Working with Dr. Tsafrir has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. As a fellow healthcare professional, I do not take endorsements lightly.
Around 3 months ago, I made the decision to switch psychiatrists, along with other significant lifestyle changes. Conventional medicine/psychiatry had failed me repeatedly. I was frustrated, sick, and not in a good place physically or mentally.
Dr. Tsafrir took the time to look at the whole scope of my declining health. Specifically, testing for conditions as mold sensitivity, chronic infections, systemic inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, and exposure to heavy metals. It soon became apparent that most of my current/past afflictions were the result of chronic black mold exposure and other environmental causes. Had I not made the decision to switch to Dr. Tsafrir, I would still be stuck on the hamster wheel that is “Western” medicine.
Dr. Tsafrir has been amazing. She takes a whole being approach to mental health which includes diet, lifestyle, supplements, gut biome and many other factors that impact our well being. Dr. Tsafrir has been working with my son and helping him to reduce and even eliminate some medications. She has been there for us through challenging situations and has seen him through to the other side. Her practice is so radically different from other doctors we have worked with and I can’t even express how much she has improved my son’s overall health including his mental health.
Dr Tsafrir’s knowledge and expertise saved my son’s life. One and a half years ago my son was diagnosed with acute psychosis ,acute depression,acute ocd, acute catatonia and personality disorder just two weeks before his college graduation. He was studying Exercise Health Science and had a particular interest in following a healthful lifestyle.
It was so shocking to all of us when he started talking incoherently and was not aware of his behavior. We called the Emergency Services 7 times, he had 3 long hospitalizations and was sectioned and put on antipsychotics at the hospital. I spoke to so many psychiatrists and everyone told me the same story: that schizophrenia starts at his age and no one knows the cause of it. I couldn’t stop Googling about psychiatric symptoms and kept hoping to find some answers. I found an article about Copper Toxicity written by Dr Tsafrir, which made me wonder. I contacted her asking if she could test my son for copper overload. She called back right away and gave me an appointment (something you can never get from a psychiatrist). The first time I met her I knew she had the answer.
She tested him for mold toxicity and he had high levels of mold toxins. Dr Tsafrir’s plan of treatment was a miracle for my son and my family.
My son is now back to work, and is talking about going back to school. For the last year and a half he has not been talking to anyone but his voices and now he is talking to us. We are forever grateful to Dr. Tsafrir. We don’t have enough words to thank her. We love her!!!
