My high blood pressure was the main reason I came into Alternacare but I was also having breathing issues, weight gain and keloids. I didn’t really hold out much hope that they could help with my keloids but I really wanted them gone. My doctor prescribed Lisinopin for my blood pressure and within 3 weeks I was in the emergency room in anaphylactic shock. I could have died from this side effect and refused to take anymore of that medication. For the keloids I had cortisone shots, gel scar sheets, acupuncture, cleanses, basically everything except surgery but nothing worked for me. At my worst, I always felt sluggish, tired and stressed out. The keloids significantly impacted my self esteem in a negative way. It’s hard to describe how ugly they made me feeL and people can be extremely rude and mean while being curious. As a result, I would never wear sleeveless clothes or anything to expose those areas on my chest or back. I wasn’t able to participate in activities like hikes and kayaking because of my blood pressure and weight either.
After I received treatment at Alternacare my blood pressure is normal without medication, my breathing is normal, my weight is normal and my keloids seem slightly better. I have lost 30 pounds and roughly 12% body fat. I feel like I have more energy and my co- workers say they can tell a difference in my energy level too. My eyes are brighter and I have reduced anxiety and definitely don’t “lose it” as easily as I use to. Thank you Alternacare!
