After a week I hadn’t had a headache!

Since I was in grade school, I have been suffering from minor to severe headaches. About 3 to 4 times a week I would wake up in the morning with a headache. So one day a friend from work suggested that I go see Dr. Petersen and that I may be having an allergic reaction to food.

 So when the doctor put me on a strict dietary program for ten days, I noticed after a week that I had not had a headache.

I am really happy to find out that I am allergic to certain kinds of food that cause my headaches and that it is not hereditary. All my life I thought I had inherited it from my father, because he used to have headaches all the time. And now I try to stay away from foods that will cause my headaches.

My severe migraines disappeared!

I came here with migraine headaches, asthma and neck pain. I had these severe symptoms for about 4 years. I was taking a lot of medication.

Now after being treated for a few months I rarely get migraines at all.

I only use my inhaler about once every couple of weeks and my neck doesn’t hurt anymore!

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.

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.

I am naturally cured!

Before I started coming to HealthNOW Medical Center I had several problems that were continual. Some of the problems were arm pain and numbness, migraines, high cholesterol, sleeplessness, back and neck pain.

After going to HealthNOW for only 3 months, most of my symptoms and problems have been resolved! 

I hurt my upper left arm while painting the inside of our house last summer. At night, the pain would become worse and my arm would feel numb. It would wake me up at night. I felt like I was becoming weaker all the time.

The Pneu-Back treatments (a specialized form of physical therapy) and the manipulations that got everything back in line and ended the numbness and pain.

 I also had frequent migraines. I did a hormone test and am now into the fourth month of taking my supplement and I have had no migraines this month. I feel like my emotions have leveled out and I do not feel as tired. 

I was on Zocor, a high cholesterol medication. I asked my internist if I could try to control my cholesterol with diet and exercise because the medication made me feel bad.

I went off the medication for three months and with HealthNOW’s help with supplements, nutrition counseling and exercise, I was able to lower my cholesterol naturally so I do not have to take the Zocor any more. 

Another problem I was having was with sleeping. I worked “grave yard” off and on for a while and when I went off that shift I could not sleep through the night. I started taking melatonin with the doctor’s recommendation and I sleep like a baby now. I have more energy and I feel 100% better. 

In addition to the above mentioned problems, I had neck, shoulder and back pain.

Through treatments on the Pneu-Back and manipulations I have no more pain. I do exercises every day for my back and neck and I feel stronger than ever. 

I am a person who likes things that are natural. I hated the thought of starting a medication that I would have to take for the rest of my life. I think it is a miracle that all my problems with my health were handled in a natural way. 

I have not felt this good for as long as I can remember. I am truly grateful and thankful to HealthNOW Medical Center.

Sincerely,

— R.M.




My energy levels have risen substantially!

I came to HealthNOW through a referral by a friend. I knew I had poor eating habits, I was experiencing very low energy, bloating, weight gain and headaches.

 I didn’t truly believe that a change in my diet would change my life but it definitely has! In just 1 month I lost 6 pounds. My energy levels have risen substantially. I don’t experience as much stress and I haven’t had a significant headache in weeks.

Through HealthNOW I learned about balancing my diet and eating a broad range of healthy foods. I’ve been taking supplements to support my body which have helped tremendously. 

My friends and co-workers comment on my appearance, often saying that I look like I’ve been in the sun – glowing and healthy!

 I haven’t felt deprived of any food during my nutritional program and the benefits I’m experiencing are so marked that I plan to continue this as long as I can!

 All the professionals at HealthNOW have been so supportive through this program and are extremely knowledgeable. I have learned much about my body and its needs.

 Thank you for helping me to feel my best!

My allergies are gone!

My allergies are gone!

HG testimonialI was first referred to the HealthNOW Medical Center in the spring and while I’ve only been actively receiving treatment for 30 days, the results have been amazing.

This is the first time that I can truly say a course of treatment has literally changed my life. I have been a chronic sufferer of airborne allergies, sinus problems, migraines, stomach disorders and severe back, neck and shoulder pain. While I have used prescription medication virtually all my life to control the related symptoms, I’ve never found any treatment to relieve the underlying problems. The team at HealthNOW was the first group of medical professionals to actually find the underlying cause of my symptoms!

Since following the course of treatment prescribed, including a gluten-free diet, vitamins, supplements and regular chiropractic appointments, virtually all my symptoms have disappeared in 30 days or less.

 When first arriving at the clinic, I was on three types of allergy medications a day, along with prescription migraine pills and the occasional painkiller for my back aches.

After starting treatment, I stopped using all my medications and have found no need to even keep them in my purse or cabinet.

 You really don’t know what a good day is until you have one again after years of pain and problems.

The treatments and consultations I receive at HealthNOW are painless and productive. I have searched for a group of medical professionals who actively wanted me, the patient, to be involved in my own course of treatment. Dr. Rick and Dr. Dean are the first doctors to allow me a seat at the table, so to speak.

While my treatments involve permanent lifestyle changed including saying goodbye to wheat products forever, this is a small price to pay for the amazing changes in how I feel, how I’m able to function and the overall quality of my life.
