“The functional medicine route is by far the best way to go. When I met Dr. Osgood, I was 40 pounds under my ideal weight. I had struggled for 2+ years trying to gain weight, put on muscle, and feel strong again. I was also experiencing heart palpitations, and was extremely irritable. I had been a collegiate athlete, but at 28 years old was so weak I was unable to hold our newborn son for any longer than a few minutes at a time. At my first appointment with Seth, I appreciated the time and energy spent to understand my health history, and my current struggles. I felt heard and understood. There was time and space to ask any and all questions I had, without feeling rushed or degraded. Going into my first appointment, I was convinced I had a parasite, and balked at the idea of doing the lab tests Seth recommended. However, I’m now so thankful we did all the tests Seth recommended. Those tests revealed I had Graves’ Disease - an Autoimmune Hyperthyroid condition, as well as several underlying gut issues. I had no clue. Knowing exactly what was going on in my body was key for us to put a plan together to correct all the health issues I had going on. With diligence and support, following the plan we put together with Dr. Osgood, I’m overjoyed to report Graves’ Disease is now in full remission! Something my Endocrinologist originally told me would never happen. Now, I’m off all medication and have implemented several healthy lifestyle habits that will continue to benefit me and my family for years to come. I am strong, have energy, and am generally happier than I have been in years. Thank you Dr. Osgood and GrassRoots for leading the way for those of us who desire true health and healing!”
When my oldest child started to have some health issues I was at a loss for how to deal with the situation. As a pharmacist, I knew that what she was experiencing wasn’t completely typical. I know the basics of lots of health conditions and I know about the medications that are usually prescribed and I knew that in her case, they wouldn’t help. When I couldn’t bear to watch her suffer anymore I went the route that was the only thing I knew about-traditional medicine. While the physicians we met were compassionate, I could tell they didn’t know what to do with her and I felt like they dismissed everything I said. We were referred to a specialist because of some odd lab values and the summary of the visit was him saying, “We don’t worry about those lab values. A functional medicine Doctor would be all over that but we don’t concern ourselves with that”. I left the office, took my daughter to school, and cried in frustration. Then I decided to listen to what the specialist inadvertently recommended and make a change to functional medicine. I decided to take a chance and head in a direction that I knew NOTHING about. I called my sister in law and she knew I was ready to listen. She told me how Dr. Osgood and Grassroots Functional Medicine had changed her life and healed her when traditional medicine had failed her for years. I made an appointment that day and began the journey of finding healing for my daughter. I had a million questions and concerns and Christina in the office was so helpful and patient with me. Dr. Osgood was amazing and supportive and knowledgeable. As he described what he felt was going on with her health it just clicked-I knew what he was saying was exactly what she was dealing with. I had been reading and researching for months and I just couldn’t make everything fall into place but it finally all made sense. Healing wasn’t an easy process-it took commitment and a lifestyle change for her. However, the reward was worth it. After a year or more of increasing misery and worsening symptoms, she finally began to feel better. Last week she left to go to college. I cried a few sad tears because I was saying goodbye to her but I cried even more happy tears because she finally feels great and has been symptom free. My goal was to find answers for her by the time she left for school and thanks to Grassroots and Dr. Osgood I have a happy healthy girl. I couldn’t be more grateful.
Dr. Osgood has been a life changer for my 9 year old son who has PANDAS/PANS/ Lyme. Before starting treatment my son was in such a bad place he could hardly function. Dr. Osgood did extensive testing to see exactly what elements needed treatment, supplementation and what foods needed to be eliminated. Healing is a slow process that requires a lot of tweaking of the protocol and time and patience. Dr. Osgood found ways to help him heal all while listening to my suggestions and concerns along the way. My input was always validated and welcomed. I can’t say enough about how much he has helped our journey. We know we have more healing to do, but our current regimen has given my son his life back.
I’ve been a patient of Seth’s for the past year and my husband has been a patient for the past two years. He is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate, caring and detailed. He’s a good listener, too. Seth has helped my husband successfully gain control of his Rheumatoid arthritis without drugs and he is now in remission. I had been to countless doctors over the years trying to find a cause for my ongoing fatigue and muscle pain. Seth was the only medical professional who took the time to dig deep and tried to find a root cause. He is also the only medical professional that tested me for Lyme disease. Unfortunately, that came back positive. He’s been overseeing my treatment and I am making progress. Words can’t express how much we appreciate Seth and the work he’s doing. He has positively impacted our lives and we are grateful for him.
I have been challenged by CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), autoimmune thyroid disease, and a Mast Cell disorder for over 5 years. These issues resulted in systemic, chronic inflammation affecting multiple systems of my body. I suffered from a long list of symptoms. I lost all of my energy and enthusiasm. Most days I was consumed with debilitating “brain fog” which made the most basic life tasks a challenge. I sought help from countless doctors in Texas and the surrounding states, without resolution or even meaningful improvement. The challenges seemed insurmountable, and my emotional state was deteriorating rapidly. That changed when I met Dr. Seth Osgood! Dr. Osgood took my entire medical history into account – the body, my mental state and support structures, and emotional well-being. He has a unique approach to treatment which manifests through his compassion, thoroughness, and enthusiasm for his patients’ well-being. His encouragement and optimism made an immense difference in my outlook. Dr. Osgood uncovered the hidden causes of my condition and explained the mystery of what I now know to be a complex illness. His treatment plan has me well on the path toward healing. This will be the first year in several that I can resume my passion - hiking in the mountains! I am so grateful for his care!
One year and a half before I found Dr. Osgood, I was not able to speak. My vocal chords did not have enough energy to vibrate and post-nasal drip obstructed the little function I was able to get out of them. I felt flu-like symptoms and, exhausted all the time, was not longer to work or even function as a mom. I saw many, many doctors to no avail! I researched and researched until it became clear that Functional Medicine was the way to go. That’s how I found Dr. Osgood. A month after my first visit, Seth was able to pin down the root cause of my illness. He ran specific genetic testing and comprehensive labs to identify the current state of my health. After analyzing genetic, environmental, and life style factors; he discovered that I was genetically susceptible to mold and was indeed being exposed to it. The journey back to health was not easy but as fascinating as transformative! Seth taught me the tools that my body needs to achieve optimal, radiant health. Simply put, he got my life back! I am a now much better off than I ever was before getting sick. I have energy, focus, a sense of purpose, I can feel my emotions, my brain works, I can deal with stress, I feel comfortable with my body and I like how I look at 45! I have worked really hard to achieve this, but without Seth’s help, I could have never reached my true health potential. Dr. Osgood has transformed my life and I hope my friends and family will be as fortunate to have him as a health care provider. He is an amazing practitioner and person. I am deeply grateful for his knowledge and commitment to improve the life of his patients!
Dr. Seth Osgood has many qualities of an ideal healthcare practitioner: knowledgeable, dedicated, thorough, compassionate, well-researched, positive, and a great listener, to name several. I have been a “tough case”, with many others having told me that I’m out of options and have to live with ineffective Band-Aid solutions. Not something you want to hear in your 20s! Throughout my treatment, Seth has never doubted my symptoms and has remained resolute in finding the root causes of my illness, so that I can be the healthiest version of me possible. He has consistently been concerned with not just my physical wellbeing, but also my emotional wellbeing. I know that my health would be stuck in a downward spiral without functional medicine as offered by Seth. I’ve gone from barely being able to get through each day to enjoying things that I am passionate about again! It is rare to find a practitioner who can be trusted as much as I trust Seth. I highly recommend working with him to get to the root of your chronic health issues!
Dr. Seth Osgood has played not only a vital, but more importantly, a pivotal role in my health journey. His vast knowledge, intense listening and his ability to concentrate on individual care, makes him the best practitioner I have ever encountered. I didn’t feel like a number, as I had with a few previous “alternative” or “functional” practitioners. Dr. Osgood was able to dig in deep to the root causes of my autoimmune issues. I struggled with Hashimotos for years until I decided to give Seth a try, and I could not be happier that I did. My body and overall health has improved so much, that my Hashimotos is almost in full remission, and I haven’t felt this good in years. I am and will be forever grateful for all Seth has done and continues to do to on my path to full healing.
In my first appointment with Dr. Osgood he really took the time and listened to me. He asked thoughtful and insightful questions that brought out details of my health history that I had totally forgotten about. Dr. Osgood is extremely knowledgeable but also relatable and fun to talk to and work with. You can tell he stays on top of the most cutting edge research and he cares about his patients. He presented multiple ideas and options and we had conversations about each to determine the best next steps. Working with Seth feels like a partnership. He is fully committed to his patients’ improvement and it was clear he really cared and was motivated to get to the bottom of what’s causing my condition. To anyone struggling with their health and having a hard time getting answers or seeing results, I’d say schedule an appointment with Dr. Osgood.

Thanks Dr. Osgood for all that you do!
After a couple of years of unexplained & intermittent health issues, I worked with Dr. Seth Osgood to improve my overall health. In our first appointment, Seth spent more time learning about my health history than my three physicians spent cumulatively over the prior two years. Under his care, Dr. Osgood always provided his undivided attention & expertise to determine the best course for me. I looked forward to our appointments knowing we were thoroughly exploring potential culprits that may be disrupting my health. By following Seth’s plan, my general health improved overall. I feel blessed to have crossed Dr. Osgood’s path.
No words could every truly convey the type of practitioner Dr. Osgood is and the type of care he provides to patients and families. I have been blessed beyond measure to work with him and I will forever be grateful for his knowledge and expertise. He is detail oriented while also taking a look at the big picture and connecting the dots in someone’s healthy journey. There is no other provider I would rather partner with me, my friends or my family to optimize health and get to the root cause of chronic conditions. His compassion accompanied by his knowledge, experience and expertise are incomparable.
