From good to even better!
Sick and tired of being sick and tired!
When I first came to see Dr. Carolyn Berghuis I was almost 220lbs and constantly battling viruses, sinus infections, acne, irritability, food sensitivity, extremely low energy and was on many different medications. Dr. Carolyn was my last resort for help as I felt like everything that I tried had failed. Dr. C and her staff are extremely helpful and supportive. They are always willing to work with your schedule to reach optimal health and wellness. She has helped me transform from the inside out. I have lost 60 lbs, feel better than I have in 10 years and am off many of the medications. Dr. C started slowly and worked up to tackle my major issues. She is the only person who knew what treatment I needed to reach success. She has figured out the keys to help me reach my optimal state of health and wellness and I am so grateful that I found her and have told so many family and friends about her!
I began seeing Dr. Carolyn because I was gaining weight for no reason and I had done just about every weight loss program on the market. This one truly worked. I began my weight loss journey approximately 4 months ago. When I first heard about the HCG Diet I wanted the diet to start tomorrow, I wanted the weight gone. Dr. Carolyn explained that process of the diet and the cleanse. In the beginning I did not get why I needed the cleanse, however once I started the HCG diet I could see the importance of that step. If nothing else, it allows you to begin looking at what you actually eat. The first week on the HCG diet was great. The weight fell off. I felt so much better. Dr. C was incredibly helpful in my meal planning as well as when I had questions and concerns. There is no way I could have ever done this diet on my own. Dr. C was able to pull it all together for me. The one thing I was never able to do on my own. Through this 90 day process I was able to lose 30 lbs. and keep it off. The one thing I know is I will never weigh what I did again. Thanks so much Dr. C!
Weight Loss Success!
I first learned of my hypothyroid issue about 7 years ago. Recently I have had to get blood tests every 3 months to increase the dosage of synthroid. When Carolyn held an educational seminar on Sluggish Weight loss, I signed up. I learned more from her 2 hour seminar than I had in the 7 years from my medical doctor. The seminar gives you plenty to think about and several ah-ha’s, yes, I experience that….things you just pass of as stress, being a part of normal life’s aging process, hormonal, etc. I considered myself a somewhat healthy eater, I drank my water, took vitamins, exercised some, tried all the diets from Atkins, Jenny Craig, T-Burn Fat Attack Combo, you name it, but I could not lose but a few pounds here and there. I first met with Carolyn on June 6th and began the 3-week cleanse process on June 19th. Today is July 19th and I have lost 16.5 pounds and have more energy than I could imagine. Just prior to meeting with Carolyn, I would come home from work, eat, sit down to watch Wheel of Fortune at 7:00 pm and would fall asleep in the chair in the middle of the show. NOT GOOD !!! I experienced interrupted sleep at night, 3:00 in the afternoon sleepy time, and lots more small things that added up to no energy, feeling irritable, and overall blaaah …all things I just said was a part of “normal” life. Well, it is not normal. From the different testing methods, I have learned some very interesting things about myself. Carolyn is always willing to take the time to explain it so you understand….even though it is a great deal of information that is basically a foreign language to most of us. What does It take to do this plan: Commitment, some “me” time which we all should do anyway, organization, open mindedness, willingness to listen to your body more than you ever have before….because it will tell you things, we just need to be aware, which that is what Carolyn is good about…asking do you experience this, that??? Still I pass some things off as something else, but she makes me aware that it may be something else that I didn’t know was a symptom or a result. The overall experience so far has been AWESOME!
