Energy Level Higher!
"I was feeling poorly for years since my hysterectomy in 2002. I had gained weight, was feeling sluggish, very tired, my life is full of stress running a business, dealing with my family members health issues, and the general stresses of family life. My blood pressure was not being controlled and I was not digesting foods the same. Something was wrong. I also was having symptoms of a weakened bladder due to my hysterectomy and went through the tests to determine if I was a candidate for surgery. I knew that was not the answer and I wanted to turn this downward spiral around. The breaking point was when my step father fell ill and passed away in Florida. I was flying down often to help and felt like I was ready to be in that hospital myself. Enough was enough. I have a degree in Dietetics Management and knew there was something more than what we were being told by the ADA and the FDA. I am also an ex-pharmaceutical rep and for 12 years knew how the marketing dollars influenced what we take and what we are prescribed. The Nutritional Wellness Center was the answer. I started in February of 2011 and learned a lot about what my body needed and what did not work for me anymore. There were not many surprises in what I was told. I was having issues at times digesting dairy so it was no surprise I needed to eliminate it from my diet. After eliminating the wheats, breads, etc from my diet, my bladder issues disappeared. That means no surgery for me and I am so happy! My blood pressure started to drop also and now I am on sub clinical doses every other day for my blood pressure. We hope to eliminate them soon. My weight is still dropping gradually - I am 31 pounds lighter. However, the first thing I noticed after eliminating sugar from my diet was the way my body handled the times in between meals. I no longer felt shaky between meals and did not have the cravings to snack. My energy level is so much higher now. After seeing my early results, my husband also decided to join me. He is doing fantastic and has lost 50 pounds and is reducing his meds. Together we know this is the answer for us. This makes sense, it works and we feel great! Thanks to Nutritional Wellness Center for their constant encouragement and guidance and enthusiasm has helped us through this process."
Insulin Resistance is Gone!
"My energy was low, I was insulin resistant, had high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I had a chronic cough for 30 years and my hands were constantly shaking. Hiking was difficult and I needed a trekking pole for balance. My energy is much better, I found myself answering the question, 'How have you been?' by saying, 'Great! I’m getting younger every day!!' My insulin resistance is gone and cholesterol and blood pressure are down. My hands no longer shake. Hiking is easier and the trekking pole stays home! The cough is still with me but that might just take time."
Poster Child for Diabetes Recovery and Weight Loss!
"Energy level had been low. Was in a mental fog. Thought I was just tired and ate to get more energy. Digestion was off. Felt bloated all the time. Weight was 227 lbs. Liver: fatty. Pre-diabetic/diabetic and cholesterol was 257. My doctor had given up on me: 'Just take the medication and eat what you want.' That marked the end of not caring about my body. Energy level improved by about 50%. No mental fog. No longer feel bloated. Weight as of 8/15/2011: 195.8 lbs. Liver enzymes: normal (fatty liver gone). Metabolic Syndrome/Prediabetes: A1C decreased to near normal. I am thrilled. My doctor calls me 'the poster child for diabetes recovery and weight loss.' In six months, if I continue to improve, my diabetes medication will be discontinued. I am no longer diabetic. My memory has improved too!"
Triglycerides are Down!
"Before I started seeing Nutritional Wellness Center, my blood sugar was creeping up toward the diabetic range, I could not lose weight, I felt exhausted all the time and I felt irritable. I had tried restricting wheat because I knew I was sensitive to it, but I still needed a daily inhaler and daily allergy tablets to prevent bronchitis. I also suffered from anemia, osteoarthritis, migraines, bouts of dizziness and a rapid heartbeat. Now my energy level throughout the day is much more consistent and I feel terrific even though I’m eating a very low-carb diet. I no longer crave sweet food, and I’m beginning to lose weight but don’t feel deprived. I no longer have to use allergy medication or inhalers, and rarely get a cough. My anemia is gone, my arthritis rarely bothers me, and I get a migraine only if I eat wheat. My blood pressure and triglycerides are down. I’ve also learned to cook a much wider range of healthful meals for my whole family."
Blood Sugar is Now 60-70 Two Hours After a Meal!
"My blood sugar was 120-150 two hours after a meal. My PSA was 4.1, my AIC was 7, and I weighed 180 pounds. My first visit assessment of physical fitness level was 70; my actual age is 71. My blood sugar is now 60-70 two hours after a meal. My PSA is 2.8, my AIC is 6.1, and my weight is down 18 pounds - I am now 162. My balance is better. I have more energy and I am eating less."
