All my physical problems are reversed!

When I first came to HealthNOW I was, frankly, a mess. I was extremely depressed and moody, was having horrible headaches, and was literally getting the flu every few weeks. I had extreme fatigue and trouble concentrating. I felt like I was going crazy. I was anxious and irritable all the time. I felt sick all the time. All this had been going on for years, getting worse each year until my life was falling apart.

The doctors approached my problems in a logical manner and persisted in handling the various areas I was having trouble with despite my own laxness at times. 

Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and nutritional supplements turned all the symptoms above around. I’m often amazed how much clearer I think. 
My memory is normal again. The moodiness is much more under control. 
I rarely have a headache. (I cause them myself when I do get them by going off my diet and vitamins.)

For me miracles have occurred and I’m very grateful to the doctors for their help. The tests they had me do to find the right supplements and diet were amazing and have changed my life to a higher quality. The diet has worked very well for me and, one learned and refined, contributed to the final change in life and health for me. 

I honestly thought I was too old to reverse the physical problems I had. My energy and vigor for life is way back up.

Thanks!

Since receiving treatment at HealthNOW, I wake feeling refreshed before the alarm goes off!

“For about the past 4 years I have had severe neck pain, shoulder pain and fatigue. Most mornings I woke up feeling like a loaded Mac truck had been running over me all night. Mornings were very painful.

 Since receiving treatment at HealthNOW, I wake feeling refreshed before the alarm goes off! The modified diet is working great. 

I know I still have a ways to go but I am reaping the rewards of this change in my lifestyle. I am a convert to HealthNOW philosophy and thankful for my sister-in-law who recommended the doctors and staff for my health care.
 Life is good!”

The quality of my life (both physical and emotional) has benefited dramatically.

I’ve had Fibromyalgia for 8 years. When I came to HealthNOW 6 months ago I had experienced fatigue, muscle pain, migraines, insomnia and a general feeling of ill health. I was taking drugs for pain and drugs for sleep.

 Since beginning the health program at HealthNOW I’ve had great success in either reducing or eliminating most of the symptoms’ severity. 

I began a modified diet after an adrenal test showed that a change in diet would probably help some of the insomnia and muscle fatigue.

I began taking supplements which have helped stabilize my energy level.
 I also began exercising regularly which contributes to the overall general well being I have continued to experience. 

I am grateful I was led to the care offered by HealthNOW. The quality of my life (both physical and emotional) has benefited dramatically. This is my year to be well. And the success is due to the partnership I have with all the team at HealthNOW Medical.

No more fatigue and moodiness!

I remember asking Dr Petersen how good should an almost 50 year old feel. I didn’t know the answer to that, and to be frank, I was dubious that anyone could help me to feel much better than I did.

Boy, was I wrong! Between the program of adjustments and chiropractic care and the nutritional diagnosis and regimen, I am, literally, a new woman.

Within days of going on a modified elimination diet, I felt more energy, less fatigue, and even a lot less moodiness! I didn’t know exactly what the key was until my lab tests came back, but I knew they’d hit on something important. I never would have guessed at my intolerance for gluten without them.

Now, gluten-free for over 4 months, I have lost weight and I’m able to start reintroducing lactose into my diet.

Still, when Dr Petersen claimed that their program of slowly de-stressing my adrenal system would allow me to be allergy-free, even from cats, I was again skeptical. I had been acutely allergic to cats since I was eleven years old. I couldn’t even be in the same room with them! However, last month, after three months of being gluten-free and caring for my adrenal system’s repair, I was able to pet a friend’s cat with no reactions! I never would have believed it.

I just want to thank everyone at HealthNOW. You have a wonderful clinic filled with helpful and caring professionals.

Thank you doctors!

Thank you for changing my life. Indeed, saving my life.

I had discovered through a laboratory test that I had antibodies to gluten in 2003. For the last seven years, I had very carefully avoided gluten. I learned all the unsuspecting places gluten might be found, and I have been very careful to avoid them. Since avoiding gluten, the sharp, stabbing pains that I had in my lower abdomen have gone away, but I was still extremely fatigued. Fatigued to the extent that I took an early retirement from work, I underwent a sleep study which did not find any major problems, and I would limit my car travel to just a few miles from home. It felt as if someone had drained all the blood from my body. Also, each annual physical would come up with a finding of progressively lower total white blood cell counts.

In 2009 and 2010, I saw both Dr. Petersen and Dr. Mousseau. They had me take a stool test checking for parasites. As strange as that might sound because I had not been backpacking or traveling to third world countries and I had no complaints of diarrhea, I followed their directions. Amazingly, the results came back positive for a parasite called Cryptosporidium. They explained that this parasite is common on food and in the water. It frequently does not bother people who do not have a reaction to gluten and who have normal immune systems, but people who are sensitive to gluten can have irritated intestines that allow the parasites to stay and make a home. Although it was challenging, I took the medication they prescribed, and right away my energy levels jumped about five hundred percent. I now feel like I have normal energy levels.

There is just no way to say “thank you for giving me my life back.” What a gift these two doctors have to unravel very elusive issues that can make you feel like part of the “walking dead”. Dr. Petersen and Dr. Mousseau, thank you a million times.

Now all of my symptoms are gone!

“I was feeling depressed and fatigued. I had continuous discomfort in both of my wrists due to using the computer too much. I had a stiff neck and was feeling older than I really was. My body was not as flexible as it used to be and my posture wasn’t as upright as it used to be. I had had all these symptoms for at least 5 years.

 Now all of these symptoms are gone.
 I am 36, but I feel as if I was 26! 

Thank you,

I have learned that I’m gluten intolerant so I’ve modified my diet to eliminate gluten.

I came to HealthNOW Medical to merely gather information about ways to alleviate extreme fatigue I’d been experiencing. For more than 10 years, I experienced a number of issues ranging from digestive to neck and back problems to just an overall bad/uncomfortable physical state.

Now not only am I almost 100% symptom free, but I’ve learned about triggers, such as gluten, that cause my body to react negatively. I have learned that I’m gluten intolerant so I’ve modified my diet to eliminate gluten. I was a heavy coffee drinker, and I learned that caffeine was affecting my adrenal glands, which was causing my fatigue.

Overall, I feel like a normal human being!!!! It’d been so long that I’d forgotten what it was like to feel “normal” and pain free. This wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the folks at HealthNOW Medical.




I’ve discovered the secret to life!

I wanted to thank HealthNOW and Dr. Preeti for helping me achieve outstanding results under your weight loss program.

 I first came to HealthNow over two years ago. My main reason for coming was chronic fatigue. I was sleeping up to 12 hours per night and unable to make it through the day without a nap. I was also getting nasty skin rashes, headaches, and other problems that regular medical doctors were not able to cure.

 After being diagnosed as gluten intolerant at HealthNow and strictly avoiding gluten since then, my health fully recovered. My fatigue and other medical problems completely disappeared! I haven’t needed more than 7 hours sleep per night and have super amounts of energy. But even after adapting to my new gluten free diet I was still very overweight. I had tried every weight loss program ever devised- especially high protein, low carb programs. They never seemed to work for me. Then Dr. Preeti suggested I try a plant based program. I was concerned at first.

At my age of 51, I don’t remember ever having a meal that didn’t include meat. But I figured I might as well try it since I’d tried everything else unsuccessfully.In the first 7 weeks of my program I lost 33 pounds and my body mass index category dropped from “obese” to merely “overweight”.

This weight loss caused my pant size to drop from a 46 waist to a 38 waist and even my neck size dropped an inch and a half. I’m beyond thrilled with these results; it feels like I’ve discovered the secret to life. Women are looking at me again and all my friends tell me I look more than ten years younger. My energy is off the charts now and I’ve never felt better in my entire life! At my current rate of progress. I’m on track to be the same weight in the next 7 weeks as when I got out of the Army thirty years ago.

And the best thing about this new diet is that it is sustainable.

Unlike previous diets, I can eat like this for the rest of my life. I don’t have to eat just broccoli or all salads; I get to eat potatoes, rice, fish, and other foods I love every day. I have really adapted to this new diet and should have no problem eating this way in the future.

A month later I feel really good!

I learned about HealthNOW Medical Center from a nutritional lecture given by Dr Petersen at work.

 When I came to HealthNOW I had a lot of lower back pain. It would take me several seconds to stand up straight because it hurt so much. I also had neck pain with limited range of motion. Since fatigue was a big part of my life, I also took advantage of the clinical nutrition part of the practice.

A month later I feel really good! My neck does not hurt at all and my back only gets irritated if I sit more than a couple of hours. A big improvement!

 I have learned a lot about how, when, what and why to eat. I’m still waiting for the results of my food allergy tests but the education alone has changed my habits and well being. I get through the day with more energy left over!

 Thank you to all the doctors who have examined and adjusted me.
