The hidden reason why some people can’t lose weight = TOXINS
A detox diet is designed to support healthy weight loss by supporting the removal of toxins from the body. However, a detox diet is not a “one size fits all” diet. In fact, there are hundreds of detox diets available for someone to do and the key to successful weight loss is finding the detox diet plan that is right for you.
In order to determine which detox diet plan is right for you, there are a couple things you have to learn before deciding. One of the first things you need to understand is that when something is bad for the body the body tries to eliminate that thing. When it can’t eliminate it, the body will then try and contain it so it can’t spread or cause damage. An example of this would be the formation of a tumor. Essentially, a tumor is a protective coating over a bunch of cancer cells clumped together. A tumor is the body’s way of trying to help slow the spreading of the cancer to the rest of the body.
Toxic chemicals can damage the vital organs of the body. The body tries to eliminate these dangerous toxic chemicals. However, when there are too many toxins, or if the body’s detoxification system is damaged, the body can’t eliminate all the toxins. Now, the body doesn’t want poisonous toxins just floating around the blood stream where they can damage the brain and other vital organs. The solution the body employees? Store the toxins someplace safe. One of the easiest and safest places to store toxins is in your fat. If you haven’t noticed there is not a whole lot going on in your fat. It just kind of sits there keeping you company like an unwelcome house guest. (Insert mother-in-law jokes here)
Now, not everyone’s toxins are the same and not everyone’s detoxification system is the same. It’s like an exercise program, you have to find what works for you. I’m more of a test rather than guess, type of guy. So, at AlternaCare we have designed a very specialized Holistic Exam and Holistic Testing procedure that helps us determine the best detox diet for you. Should it be a Blended Green Drink detox diet? How about an herbal detox diet with combined with a cleanse? Maybe a whole food cleanse or a juice fast? Let’s take the guess work out of all this and find out what is right for you.
Normally the Holistic Consultation and Examination run between $125 and $175 but from now until September 30th they are only $29. The first step is to call the office at (770)304-1500 or fill out the Free Online Weight Loss and Health Evaluation and one of our awesome staff will contact you ASAP.

Just a Few of Our Successes:*
Link Between Depression Anxiety and Intestinal Problems
Many people with anxiety and depression have tried everything from countless blood tests, visiting doctor after doctor, trying nutritional supplements and other remedies with usually no long lasting results. What’s worse, is many of the labs studies come back “normal” making the patient feel it is, “all in their head” and the only solution are powerful mind-altering medications. The truth is, there is absolutely a cause to the problems of anxiety and depression. In my experience I have found that over 70% of the time there is absolutely something wrong with the person’s body that causing these horrible symptoms. Feeling hopeless, depressed, not wanting to interact with others, panic attacks, feeling overly stressed, worried all the time or “just knowing something bad will happen” can have an actual physical cause to them.
For example, if the adrenal hormones become unbalanced you can get an overproduction of the hormone cortisol. When this hormone is in an unbalanced state with the other adrenal hormones in the body you can get problems with sleep, anxiety and depression. In addition to that you can develop aching in your muscles and joints and feel fatigued.
Another example would be a problem in the intestinal track. All the neurotransmitters in your brain are made from protein. Some type of intestinal problems stop a person from being able to break down protein sufficiently. If you can’t break down protein then you won’t be able to make certain neurotransmitters. This can cause a person to feel anxious, stressed, irritable, problems focusing, problems concentrating and sometimes even contribute to migraine headaches.
I could go on and on identifying all the things that could potentially contribute to anxiety, depression and other brain related issues but the list is so long that if you are reading this and didn’t suffer from depression you very well might develop it……LOL.
At AlternaCare we use a unique Holistic Health Examination combined with Holistic Lab Tests and sometimes a specialized type of Biofeedback Analysis that is not commonly done in traditional medical clinics or holistic clinics for that matter. These procedure are not diagnostic in nature but they help us identify the true underlying cause to a person anxiety or depression. Once found, we can get the patient on the exact eating and nutritional supplement program to support their body in healing itself. A healthy person doesn’t have anxiety or depression and that is what our goal is for you. To create a healthier you, which subsequently, would be free from these awful condition.
The interesting thing is, in the last 19 years we have never had two patients on the same exact holistic program because each patient is unique. Each patient’s anxiety/depression might have a different cause to it. The first step in uncovering the cause to your problem is either to fill out the contact form below or call the office at (770)304-1500 and schedule for your Holistic Examination. Normally the exam is between $125-$175 but until September 30th it is only $20. If neither of those sound right for you then please fill out the Free Online Health Evaluation – CLICK HERE and one of our amazing staff will call you for a free consultation to explain your survey results and review how we can help.

“….. I had seen psychiatrists and tried anti-depressants, but all I would do was sleep all the time. I gave up many activities I enjoyed, one being exercise. I even had days that I would sneak away from work to take a nap. I had no energy to engage with my family. These problems became very depressing and debilitating!
“Now, after coming to Alternacare I am no longer struggling with weight, no longer depressed, sleeping better, and have more energy! I feel better than ever!”
— Anita W. (Individual results may vary)
“My depression is nonexistent. I feel great. Thank you Alternacare for giving me my life back.” — Cindy V. (Individual results may vary)
I decided to try Alternacare and since I began treatment I lost 20 pounds. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 10. I’m off all of my medications and my energy is in abundance. I now sleep like a log and my anxiety is gone. I have much more confidence in myself and love how I look and feel. Thanks so much Alternacare.” — Shirlene G. (Individual results may vary)
“Some of the symptoms that brought me to Alternacare were anxiety, cloudy thinking and sleep trouble. I tried changing my diet to cut out carbohydrates but that did not help so my doctor prescribed Xanax for the rough times. At my worst, I was hard pressed to leave my home for any length of time without being nervous. I always carried my Xanax just in case. I stopped going on overnight trips and going more that 10 minutes away from home. Twice I left overnight trips with my friends because I just felt too uneasy. It was sad and completely uncharacteristic for me. I have always been the social butterfly and the first one to charge out the door in search of fun however, we had a 5 day, all expense trip to Aruba given to us and I considered not going. It was the first time in years my husband and I would have a trip alone without the 4 kid, we needed it! I then had to use the Xanax everyday on the trip. Hard to believe that trying to relax can give you more stress. I stopped being me, I was irritable and the cloudy mind was driving me nuts. It made me truly think I was loosing my mind. I am surprised I did not end up clinically depressed. I did not do all the things I love to do.”
“After I received treatment at AlternaCare our family has planned a trip to Disney World which I never would have considered a few months ago! I can attend my book club again without fear of the restaurant location being more than 10 minutes away. I feel more at ease everyday and I’m sleeping through the night much more often. I still have a rough night from time to time but nothing like the lack of sleep I was experiencing. I have lost 30 pounds and I use the Xanax very infrequently now. I no longer have a racing heart and swollen ankles and feet. I feel more like myself which is a priceless gift. Thank you!”

Are you exhausted? Discouraged? Feel like you just can’t get your energy back no matter what you do? Many people with Chronic Fatigue (CF) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) have tried everything from, visiting doctor after doctor, herbal remedies, vitamins, Lyme Disease treatments and so on, but don’t ever feel like themselves. I remember one of my patients explaining to me how they don’t have the energy some days to properly take care of their kids, their home or even themselves. It’s truly terrible for some. The first step in understanding how someone with Chronic Fatigue or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be helped, is to understand how the body makes energy and where the body’s energy production system is breaking down (more on that later).
For starters, your body generates energy by producing a chemical called ATP. ATP gives energy to your body and is produced by a part of your cell called the mitochondria. Every cell in your body has a mitochondria and the mitochondria make energy. However, in the Chronic Fatigue and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Case, the mitochondria are either not working properly or there are not enough of the mitochondria present in the body. That’s right! You could actually have not enough mitochondria, which is like trying to drive a big 18-wheeler truck on a moped engine. It might move, but it will be slow and have all kinds of problems.
There are several things that can stop the body from making enough mitochondria or simply stop the mitochondria from working properly. Let’s take a look at some potential connections to CF and CFS.
Potential Connections to CF and CFS:
- Adrenal Fatigue-the adrenal glands are located above the kidneys and make hormones that help the mitochondria work properly.
- Thyroid dysfunction–certain thyroid hormone controls the size and number of mitochondria.
- Hormonal imbalances–there are many others hormones that can go out of balance or become deficient that can effect the mitochondria.
- Intestinal problems–can stop the absorption of key nutrients that the mitochondria need for proper function.
- Neurotransmitter deficiencies–certain neurotransmitters such as, the catecholamines stimulate the mitochondria into action.
- Liver dysfunction–can cause too many toxins to be present in the body that will interfere with mitochondrial production as function.
- Nutritional deficiencies–a diet void of proper nutrients could stop the body from making the correct number of mitochondria, as well as, could stop the ones that are being made from working properly.
- Host of other toxic compounds from mercury to bromide toxicity all of which have their own affect on the production of energy through the mitochondria.
- Autoimmune condition in the body–this is most commonly seen with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, although it can be present with Chronic Fatigue.
- There are others which we’ll leave out for now.
Any of the above situations can shutdown your mitochondria and stop your ATP production. This robs your body of energy and leaves you feeling dead. Now Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has it’s own unique issues, as it has an autoimmune component to it that Chronic Fatigue doesn’t necessarily have. So in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome you have to not only find what has gone wrong in the body that has stopped the mitochondria from working properly but you also need to discover why on earth the immune system has gone a bit bonkers.
Symptoms For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
Chronic Fatigue suffers may also experience some or all of the below. (Taken directly from Mayo Clinic):
- Loss of memory or concentration
- Sore throat
- Enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits
- Unexplained muscle or joint pain
- Unrefreshing sleep
- Extreme exhaustion lasting more than 24 hours after physical or mental exercise
The Real Questions that Need to be Answered:
The thing that we have to understand is that there is a cause to Chronic Fatigue and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, you just have to find it. The symptom that come with CF and CFS are not the cause they are the effect. Kind of like when you step on a dog’s tail, where does the bark come from? In CF and CFS you need to identify the cause!
- Why is this condition present?
- What broke down in your body to produce this condition?
- What can be done to support your body so it can heal itself from this condition?
These are the real questions that need answering.
The first step in finding and addressing the cause to CF and CFS is to fill out my Free Online Health Evaluation. This is a very important tool and the first step that we use at AlternaCare to identify the root cause of this or any condition. Just remember, everything has a cause. The Free Online Health Evaluation only takes about 2 minutes to complete and moves us in the direction of identifying that cause.

“Before I came in to Alternacare I had thyroid problems, cholesterol problems, and most importantly, suffered from chronic tiredness and just never felt well. I had tried Weight Watchers, was on thyroid medication. I would actually plan naps before getting out of bed in the morning. I had no energy and no desire to socialize or do anything “extra”. I didn’t even have energy to help kids with homework/projects, or keep my house clean. After coming to Alternacare, I lost 40 pounds, my sleep is greatly improved, I have energy in ample supply, no more naps, no more puffiness under the eyes, and no more meds!! Thanks so much Alternacare!”
