Cheryl was on medication for high blood pressure, asthma, and reflux. She had low energy and poor sleep quality. At 55, she was 5’6” and her weight was 185.
Maria had just been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC), a chronic bladder disease caused by inflammation in the bladder walls that causes urinary frequency, burning, pelvic heaviness or pain and in some cases can be so severe that the urge to urinate occurs every 30-60 minutes.
Lisa came to see me after she had four failed attempts at artificial insemination and two attempts at in vitro fertilization that resulted in pregnancy and miscarriage. She was 43 years old, tall and thin. In addition to wanting to achieve a full term pregnancy, Lisa was having sleep problems and was therefore always tired.
Lee was 56 at the time, about 25 lbs. overweight and complaining of colitis with bad gas, bowel movement urgency, and loose stools to the point where she was afraid to do much traveling, which she had really enjoyed in the past.
Carol was 40 when she came to see me. She was 5’4” and weighed 245 lbs. She had gained a lot of weight with her three pregnancies and was never able to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight of 150. She wanted a program that would allow slow, gradual weight loss, help boost her energy level and provide a healthy eating program for her whole family, who were all overweight.
Bobby was seven years old when he came to see me. He had chronic strep throat; 12 times in the last two years, with one incident taking three courses of antibiotics to clear up. In addition, he had moderate irritability, tantrums, low muscle tone, fatigue, and some food allergies. His parents wanted a healthier child with a vitamin regimen to keep him off of antibiotics in the future.
