Caregiver Success Stories
My story started about 4 months ago with an appointment I had here at the Clinic, in Functional Medicine. It was recommended to me by a friend and co-worker and it has turned out to be the best thing I could have ever done for my health. Since going to the appointment and meeting with the doctor and nutritionist I have lost a total of 22 pounds by making a conscious lifestyle change of my eating habits. Rather than looking at it as a diet I have learned to make better meal choices which has not only helped me but my husband as well. I still have about 25 more pounds to go but I'm more motivated and well on my way with eating better and adding exercise to my total lifestyle change. Before going to this appointment I was having issues with a lot of inflammation and told by a doctor that it was arthritis because of my age... it was so bad that I could hardly walk up stairs now I can run up and down the stairs in my home just from changing how I was eating! I was also being treated blood pressure and sleep apnea and probably on my way to diabetes and high cholesterol. But hopefully by my next appointment these issues will be much more under control because of changing my diet and adding more exercise to my life! I'm a very spiritual person but now I feel better not only spiritually and emotionally but now physically. I always knew a plant based whole grain diet was better for you but never implemented it in my life but now I'm a firm believer in "You Are What You Eat" Even though I'm not totally there yet and being imperfect I have to admit I've had some slip ups but I'm no where near as bad as I was 4 months ago!
