"Why didn't any one else ever bother to explain to me what was going on with my health?  After all these years, you are the first person to tell me, in words I can understand, what's wrong with my health and what I can do about it to make it better."

"I appreciate how you break down the complex and make it understandable, piece by piece.  For the first time I don't feel like just some sort of disease...you treat me like a person who counts.  I really feel respected and heard."

"For once I am in charge of my health.  You've taken the mystery out of why I was sick.  I didn't know how bad I felt ... now that I am so much better, I can live my life the way I want to, day after day.  Thanks so much!"

"You saved my life.  I had one scary heart-related event after another, including arrhythmias and panic attacks.  After 2 stomach bypass surgeries, serious heartburn and digestion issues, and weighing almost 500 pounds, I finally realized I had to make real changes.  NOW!  That last cardiac procedure of ablation, where they used a microwave probe to burn the cells in my heart that they thought were causing the distressing arrrhythmias, was the final wake-up call for me.  This procedure was done while I was awake on the operating table, and I could feel the burning pain in my heart as the doctors worked.  I prayed I would find the strength to take care of myself and knew it was time for a change from what conventional allopathic medicine offered me.  You explained the needed changes so I could understand it, do it and maintain a health program based on sound, sane principles.  You broke it down step by step, into phases of care I could do and achieve.  For the first time in over 20 years, I am making choices for my health that work for me.  I thank you for your skills and caring as I continue to regain my health, day by day."
