I was the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life and I wanted to lose weight so I decided to give Alternacare a try. Not only had I gained weight, I had joint pain, hair loss and anxiety. I tried all the popular diets like Nutrisystem and Quick Weight Loss along with diet pills and going to the gym, but the weight stayed on. I felt so helpless. I knew I was heavy and I didn’t like myself, but I couldn’t stop the downward spiral I was in. I was always tired and sluggish, even after a good night’s sleep. I felt like I had lost “me” and I felt old and embarrassed about my looks. I knew my body was not healthy, but I didn’t know what to do to change it. I felt like I wanted to avoid activities where I needed to dress up because I hated the way I looked. Going to the beach or to the pool (activities I use to love) were things I started to dreaded.
Once I received treatment at Alternacare everything changed for the better! After my first meeting with Pam I felt truly confident that I was in great hands. She actually took the time to sit with me and listen to all my health concerns. I never felt rushed like I have in some doctor’s offices. Once it was determined that my health was contributing to my weight gain it made me feel less guilty about my eating habits. There was a reason I was so heavy and tired all the time and they could fix it! As soon as I started on my supplements, I realized my joints didn’t hurt anymore (and it took not hurting to realize my joints had been sore). My hair stopped falling out which was a noticeable improvement immediately. I had more energy and slept better all night. All in all, I felt healthier than I had in years. I have also lost 34 pounds and I’m still on track to lose more! Thank you Alternacare!
