  • I lost 32 pounds and a total of 15 inches! I’m off all medication!

    I came to AlternaCare because I was not able to loose weight and I had acid reflux, anxiety and stress. My skin was dull and I had no energy.  I just wanted to lay down and die, I was so over it. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I was bloated and depressed all the time. I was miserable and felt like I was making everyone else around me miserable. I went to a doctor who told me it was my age. He sent me to a digestive doctor who put me in the hospital for test and then prescribed 9 different meds. I walked 6 miles a day and lifted weights but nothing was helping. Since coming to AlternaCare I have lost 32 pounds and I am off all of my medication! I feel amazing! I sleep like a baby now and my energy and skin is improved! I don’t have anxiety or stress. The weight has stayed off! I also did the Strawberry Laser and my results were amazing! I lost a total of 15 inches off my body. Taneka made me feel at ease on my first visit.  I couldn’t have done this without Dr. Mark and the whole staff.  – M. Nyquist


  • I lost 11.5 inches from waist! Energy is through the roof!

    I came to AlternaCare because I felt horrible and my quality of life wasn’t good. I wasn’t able to sleep. I had panic attacks and anxiety. My PMS was severe up to two weeks out of the month. I was depressed and cried when I saw myself in the mirror. I wasn’t interactive with my kids or husband. I quit everything I loved doing and was just going through the motions of life. I tried every diet on the market… Jenny Craig, HCG, Keto, low fat and Slim Fast. I even tried a personal trainer. Since coming to AlternaCare I have lost 11.5 inches from waist! My energy is through the roof! I am not even the same human. I am sleeping like a baby. I have almost no PMS and I haven’t had a panic attack. My body has completely transformed!  I am happy, my kids are happier. My husband says he has his wife back. I feel like I’m 25 again. I am living my best life!  A. Schultz


  • Lost 60 pounds! Have more energy! Decreased Sugar Cravings!



    Prior to coming to AlternaCare, I was having constant stomach pains, sugar cravings, and I wanted to lose weight. I felt fat and unwanted. My stomach hurt all the time. I wouldn’t wear certain clothes, and I didn’t like to take pictures below my collar bone. I always felt bad about what I ate because it was mostly unhealthy food. Also, I didn’t have a lot of energy. I tried to go a week without sugar, but that only made it worse when I reintroduced the sugar back into by diet.

    After coming to AlternaCare, my sugar cravings decreased tremendously, I have more energy, and I am happier with my appearance and health. I’ve lost 60 pounds! – Yvonne Allen.


  • Lost 50 pounds! No longer needs insulin!

    I came to Alternacare because I am (or was) a diabetic. I wanted off insulin and to loose weight. I have tried Weight Watcher, diet pills and exercise classes. I was tired of my fat body and was determined to get the weight off. Since coming to Alternacare I have lost 50 pounds. I am off insulin! I have more energy! I wake up ready to go! I feel a lot better about myself. I am proud to wear a bathing suit.  B. Boyle





    When I first came into Alternacare I was struggling with my weight. I had been overweight since I was 16 years old and had tried every diet program available without success.  I always felt fat and self conscious.  I was also taller than most of my classmates so I felt big too, this made me very shy.  I also had problems with my thyroid and high cholesterol.

    After receiving treatment at Alternacare I am more confident and active.  I lost 50 pounds AND HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP IT OFF FOR ABOUT 9 (NINE) YEARS SO FAR.  My thyroid has also healed and I have been off synthroid for 9 (NINE) YEARS.  My high cholesterol is now normal and I would recommend Alternacare to my friends and family members.

  • I lost 105 pounds! I’m sleeping much better! No more hot flashes!

    post01The main symptoms that brought me to Altenacare were my sleep problems, hot flashes and weight issues.  I tried to alleviate my symptoms with exercise, weight watchers, diet pills, Atkins, no carbs, no fat, no sugar, going to the gym for almost two years and taking 3 Tylenol PM to sleep.  Nothing I tried seems to help me.  At my worst I was tired and very unhappy.  I was tired when I woke up and tired all day.  I would drink at least one cup of coffee in the morning, three diet Mountain Dews during the day plus a cup of coffee when I come home.  I craved sugar all day long.  I was tired all day because I couldn’t sleep and I didn’t like doing anything.

    After I received treatment at Alternacare I now sleep much better.  I don’t have hot flashes and my weight has gone from 260 to 155lbs!  I now have more energy to get through my day!

  • Lost more than 60 pounds! More engery! Able to handle stress better! Depression is no longer a part of my life!


    Individual results may vary

    I am 39 year-old mother of nine, homeschooled children. Our family has two boys whom we adopted from foster care that exhibit Reactive Attachment Disorder, and seven biological children. Through my 20s and 30s I gained a lot of weight.  The bulk of this came from eating a typical American diet, multiple pregnancies, and a huge amount of stress.  I had finally had enough in 2012 after a vacation to the beach when I could  barely walk across the sand. I was on medication for high blood pressure and was so embarrassed when I had to buy new jeans in a size 18; and, even those were tight. I started my journey then.   In April 2012 I weighed 222lbs.

    Jennifer Miller Face Weight Loss Before and After Jennifer Miller Weight Loss Before and After


    The best way of getting your body back and healthy!  I searched for a holistic doctor after I couldn’t climb all the stairs at a water park with my daughter. I didn’t think I was that out of shape. After having my initial consultation I had my lab work and my journey began.  The doctors and their team taught me how to eat clean and encouraged me through some hard times.  I’m down 65 pounds and feel great!

    I feel like it was one of the best decisions I have made for my life and family.

  • I lost 40 pounds! Increased Energy and Improved Mood!








    What brought me to Alternacare was my weight. I exercised 4-5 days per week and tried to make better food choices. I tried It Works and Plexus. I was embarrassed and ashamed of my appearance. I hated seeing pictures of myself. I was very depressed about my weight. When I couldn’t get results, no matter how hard I tried, I felt hopeless. I would binge eat because I was depressed and frustrated. Since coming to AlternacareI have lost 40 pounds! My energy is increased! I finally learned how to eat a healthy, balanced diet even when eating out. My mood has improved. I feel as good as I did when I got married 10 years ago!     Kara Kirby











    Before I came into Alternacare I suffered from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, extreme fatigue, weight gain and constipation.  I felt close to death.  I was so dizzy and tired that I could hardly walk.  I always thought that when I went to bed at night that I would not wake up.  I had stomach pain all of he time and my legs and hip hurt constantly.  These symptoms affected me by not being able to do things with my husband and grandchildren.

    After receiving care at Alternacare I no longer take insulin, Lisinoprel or Simuastain!  I have lost 26 pounds in the first 2 months!  I have lost to date 54 pounds, my blood test at my doctor showed that all of my levels were normal.  My AIC had dropped 2 points (from 10.5 to 8.5) in five weeks.   I’m no longer constipated or have stomach pain and my energy and sleep is greatly improved!  Best thing is now I can play with my grandchildren!
