When I started this journey twelve weeks ago, I was skeptical. Well, I'm not now! For the first eight months of 2016, I struggled to get my weight down from a high of 246 lbs. I had been fighting Diabetes for 20 years and my A1C kept climbing. I was already on two prescriptions for my blood sugar and one for my blood pressure and my doctor was beginning to use the "N" word - iNsulin. My fasting sugars were in the 200 range. I decided that enough was enough. When I started at The Metabolism Clinic I weighed in at 229 lbs with a BMI of almost 34. Twelve weeks later, I am off ALL medication, my blood sugar and blood pressure are well within the normal range, and I've lost 30 lbs of fat. My BMI is now down to 29.6, still a little higher than I want to see, but getting there. Looking at the before and after pictures, I'm stunned. I plan to take off around 20 more pounds and hopefully keep it off for good. My Hemoglobin A1c is now 5.4. At 67, I thought that all hope was lost. It's not. If I can do this, so can anyone!
I have struggled with managing diabetes for many years. At The Metabolism Clinic I have regained control of my diabetes and my life. My wife joined me on this journey as well and she is seeing a tremendous change in her health and energy levels too! I thank God for turning us both on to "The Metabolism Clinic" and now on day 41, I am feeling the best I have felt in such a very long time! My blood sugar levels have continued to drop and I am no longer on medication (been off of all my medication for over 30 days now)! What is probably the most amazing benefit I have seen in this time is the fact that I am no longer hungry... Hunger no longer drives me... That is really incredible for me! If you are looking for answers to your diabetic situation, you should really reach out to The Metabolism Clinic and talk with them about what they can do for you!
To appreciate what The Metabolism Clinic has done for me, it is probably best to give some background on what they were facing as I walked through their door. I was born in 1944 as a ten week premie with no lung capacity and an immature endocrine system. Battling weight, especially in the gut, hips, and thighs has been an undesired way of life. Cancers of the ovaries, thyroid, and colon polyps have been dealt with so far. Removing the two ovaries, each the size of an elongated small orange, necessitated a full hysterectomy. Five days later the stitches failed and the resulting shifting of organs rendered, in the surgeon’s words, a “God awful mess”. My last colonoscopy was aborted because my geometry would not accept the probe. Previous colonoscopies excised malignant polyps. Family history, job stress, and inability to digest many foods properly resulted in my becoming a Type 2 diabetic. The standard Band Aid of treatment is to begin insulin shots. Thus, I had been taking 52 units daily. My weight rose to 275 on a 5-foot frame. BMI at 50. Before removing my newly grown malignant polyps I needed to reduce my BMI to 30. Taking insulin renders weight loss impossible, so reducing my BMI meant losing weight, which translates to getting off insulin! Finding physicians to help me has for years been an exercise in futility. Previously, I had found out that doctors were not taught how to get diabetics off their high doses of insulin merry-go-round. The more I read about insulin and what it does in your body when you become severe insulin resistant scared me for what it would do to my health and the probability I would die from complications of diabetes ----- loss of limbs, overweight due to too much insulin bombarding my body. This was the discouraging state of affairs when I spied the Charlotte Observer ad for The Metabolism Clinic! At The Metabolism Clinic a quiet, unrushed, caring atmosphere is what I experience. I can explain my symptoms and they listen and understand. After the program is initiated, it is then tailored to address my individual issues. This alone makes The Metabolism Clinic unique in my experience. In my initial 12 week regimen, I have lost over 10% of my weight (32 pounds) AND… I have completely come off insulin injections! This is allowing me to continue to drop the excess fat that is keeping me from dealing with the polyp cancer I keep growing. Words do not adequately express my gratitude to The Metabolism Clinic whose caring and insight, going against mainstream mindset of the industry, have given me a new lease on life. I sing their praises to all who listen.
Several years ago, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I prayed for healing but God did not answer my prayers. I was given a diabetic diet to follow in order to control my A1c levels. This was a waste of time and paper. As time went along I was put on Metformin, Invokana, and Onglyza. I felt like every time I went to my primary care doctor I was placed on more diabetes medications and higher doses. My A1c continued to climb each time that I went to the doctor. After refusing to go on insulin I finally agreed and began with 20 units of Levemir each night before bedtime. Affording insulin created financial stress. My drug prescription plan would only pay part of the price and in three months I was in a doughnut hole. The doctor increased my insulin intake 2 or 3 times per year until I was up to 200 units every night. I was following dietary recommendations and nothing changed for a long period of time. Then I began to take Novolog before meals in an attempt to bring my readings down. I went from 5 units up to 60 unit at times before meals. I could feel I was dying a slow death. I was always tired, no energy and no desire to do anything except what I had to do. As a pastor I did not even feel like going to the pulpit on Sunday morning. I preached as a dying man and was exhausted after the service was over. Then one day God began to move and a friend told us about The Metabolism Clinic in Charlotte. I went to my free consultation and I knew instantly that this was my gift from God. After week one I was down 11 lbs. and the doctors cut my insulin intake to half. Week 2 saw even greater results and again my insulin was cut in half. My A1c continued to drop and I began to feel good again. After 12 weeks I am off ALL diabetes, cholesterol, and triglyceride medicines. I now feel 20 years younger. My weight continues to drop. My recorded weight in the clinic had me down from 228 lbs. to 190 lbs. This is what happens when you find someone who will treat the cause instead of the symptoms. I expect to see my A1c down below 5. Thank God for His great plan for my life. I also want to thank The Metabolism Clinic for their support and encouragement. Also for caring about other people’s lives. As I entered the office I was always greeted with a big smile and many kind words from the staff who always made you feel at home. My spiritual life, my marriage and all other relationships are better and I look forward to a healthy life.
I’m 64 years old and was a diabetic before starting at The Metabolism Clinic. I also have heart disease which I found out in 2004, since then I have had 3 open heart surgeries plus 20 stents and 33 heart caths. While in the hospital 10 years ago I was told that I was diabetic, my family doctor put me on Metformin 500 mg twice a day. Of course, I tried to eat right but I was still having trouble with controlling diabetes. In 2015, my heart doctor said I needed to be put on an insulin pump, my sugar numbers were running 150-250, which he said might be alright for some but not for me. The heart doctors believed the diabetes were causing some of my blockages. So my family doctor put the V-GO 20 disposable pump on me. I was using 56 units of insulin plus the metformin which did bring my sugar numbers down. At that point, I figured the next thing for me was losing my toes or limbs and even dying. I didn’t think that I would ever come off insulin. Then I started having trouble with some neuropathy and started seeing a Podiatrist. My daughter talked to me about The Metabolism Clinic after my third open heart surgery. I had a conversation with the physicians on the phone and I was still skeptical and basically didn’t want to spend the money which was tight. My daughter talked my wife and me into going to the free consultation and we decided to give it a try. I weighed 196 and A1C was 7.2 at the beginning of April, when I first started at the clinic. On May 25, my weight was 169 (lost 27 lbs.) and my A1C was 5.7. No longer on insulin pump or metformin, this all happened within six weeks of starting the program. Also, I have come off three blood pressure meds and all over the counter meds. I was tired of being operated on and having needles stuck in my arms 24 hrs. My health was more important than the money. I thank God for the doctors at The Metabolism Clinic who took the time addressing every single one of my past medical conditions. Like they said you have to treat the cause and not just the symptoms.
My husband and I have both benefited from The Metabolism Clinic. We heard about it from our daughter, who decided she needed help to lose weight and had benefited from the clinic. In November of last year, my husband had his 3rd Heart By-pass. He sought out The Metabolism Clinic and found out that they could help him with his medical issues because no matter how closely he followed his physicians recommendations before he continued to see a decline in his health. On March 30, 2017, I was 195 pounds at 5’10”. I was taking 2 types of diabetes pills, 2 types of blood pressure pills, a cholesterol pill and reflux medication. The Metabolism and Wellness Clinic told me that they guaranteed if I came to them and followed the program that they would not only get me to lose 10% of my body weight-which would be about 20 pounds-but they would REVERSE my Diabetes AND get me OFF Blood Pressure Medicine. I was a little skeptical, since I had NEVER heard of your diabetes being reversed. I thought once you had that diagnosis that you had it for life. I had an Aunt that went blind from her diabetes and I honestly thought that was where I was headed. I tried to lose weight on my own, WITHOUT taking diet pills, but I had gotten to a standstill. So, after 12 weeks, I had not lost the 20 pounds; I had lost 31 pounds instead! I am OFF both the diabetes medicines, both blood pressure pills, the cholesterol pill and my reflux medicine and I feel GREAT!
I would like to share my experience about the Metabolism Correction Program. I am so grateful I had a chance to participate in this program. The program has changed my life for the better. I have tried numerous weight loss regimens (I will list them at the end) that did not give me long term results. I would lose, but always hit a plateau. I could never keep the weight off. I can gladly say that I never plateaued with the Metabolism Correction Program. I am a person who likes working out and could never understand why I kept gaining weight. I kept hearing, it is harder to lose weight the older you get. I really enjoyed the fact, The Metabolism Clinic, focuses on each individual. They have been very supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. I have not seen this much weight off at one time in over six years. I feel really great. My question to you is, do you want a healthy body? If your answer is yes, then the Metabolism Correction Program is for you. My body feels great with thirty-five pounds off. I have more energy. My skin looks better. I workout now and I can feel the difference in my body. I have more endurance than in the past. I do not feel sluggish throughout the day anymore. It is a wonderful feeling to have the body that I knew was always inside of me. Shopping for smaller clothes is a nice reward. I must also add, I do look younger since I am thirty-five pounds lighter. I want to thank you The Metabolism Clinic for all the encouragement, advice, knowledge, and support. This is one of the best decisions in my life. The list of past weight loss regimens: Master cleanse powder, ten-day smoothie diet, weight watchers, metabolic makeover 12 weeks’ program (workout classes), personal workout trainer (3 different times), pureed diet, Hollywood liquid diet, 21-day portion control, no carb diet, vegetarian diet, weight loss clinic (2 times, diet pills, HCG shots, and B 12 shots), hydroxyl cut sprinkles, Atkin’s diet, EAS protein shakes, Arbonne detox cleansing program, detox pills and bath soaks, slim fast shakes, and Garcinia Cambogia pills
I’m a 57-year-old woman. I’ve struggled with my weight since my mid 40’s. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and had previous knee replacement. I just thought it was because I was getting older and my metabolism had slowed down. I tried several different diets, only to fail and gain the weight right back. Then my daughter told me about The Metabolism Clinic in Charlotte. This program changed my life, it is fantastic. The physicians took the time to focus on your metabolism. My body is healing from the inside, by actually fixing the problems with my metabolism in the first place. It is amazing! This clinic has changed my life. It has helped me get the inflammation down that was in my body. My joints don’t hurt anymore. My energy level is so great now! The Metabolism Clinic is involved in every step of the way. The clinic makes you feel good about yourself. There is always a positive atmosphere, from the physicians to the staff. They are always uplifting and encouraging. They are as excited to see the results as you are. I no longer crave the sweets like I used to. This whole process has made me want to stay healthy. The doctors here are AMAZING! They are always available with any questions you may have. The doctors and staff are very personable and want you to achieve your goals. I feel so much better physically and mentally. I highly recommend The Metabolism Clinic for anyone who wants to become healthy and have more quality of life. Great program and great doctors!!!
I am 32 years old and have struggled with my weight since childhood. I'm a daughter of a dietician and the only overweight one amongst my siblings. My mom tells me that even when I was a toddler and a young child, she expressed concern to my pediatrician about my consistent weight gain despite my diet. I have seen countless specialists who, after receiving my "normal blood" work, told me to "eat less and exercise more", which literally seemed impossible. Throughout my young adulthood I spent a lot of money on gym memberships, personal trainers, and diet programs but my weight continued to go up. I have two young children and the back to back pregnancies obviously didn't help my weight much. Since my youngest child was born (2 years), I have been excessively working out and calorie counting and couldn't lose a pound; in fact, I have never lost more than 5 pounds in my life!! I learned of The Metabolism Clinic on Facebook and had a consult over the phone before making the decision to travel from Detroit to Charlotte. The testimonials spoke volumes to me and I was desperate to try anything. During my appointment, I was diagnosed as being insulin resistant, amongst other things; which was a pretty scary reality for me and upsetting considering all I've done to stay healthy. After my meeting at the clinic and learning about the program, it made complete sense to me and was different than anything I'd ever tried; I had no choice but to commit the next 12 weeks (at minimum) to it. Today is day 13 on the program and I have lost 12 lbs. I've never lost 12 lbs....so I know this works. I feel fantastic and have so much energy and am not starving; I hardly even think about food or what I'm going to eat. I can't wait to see my progression over the next 10 weeks and I'm very thankful to have discovered the clinic at this time in my life.
Very positive atmosphere. Doctors are extremely supportive. Available by email with quick response. I've struggled with my weight all my life, and the older I got, the harder time I had. I'm finally losing the weight and seeing positive results! Very, very pleased with The Metabolism Clinic!
Prior to starting at The Metabolism Clinic, I was on a path to nowhere good. I had struggled with weight gain since having my child four years ago. I lacked motivation, energy, and I was growing unhappy with myself. My husband and I were even considering gastric bypass surgery. But with a toddler and busy schedule, there was no time for that. The Metabolism Clinic sincerely wants you to succeed and has supervised my weight loss journey. I was shocked with the results in the first month, losing 25 pounds. Not only was the weight coming off, I had more energy, was able to focus better, and I was not tired all the time like before from playing mom while working full-time on night shift. Restarting my metabolism, was one of the best choices I could have ever made. I no longer have any aches in my legs from being on my feet for twelve hour shifts as a nurse. I look and feel so much better. I have gone from a size 22 to a size 14 within three months. In addition, several times a day I get told how much younger I look. I am currently at a sixty-four-pound weight lost and I am still continuing to lose without plateauing. I am a believer in The Metabolism Clinic. I was able to excel on my weight loss journey and even involved my husband in the process. My husband has lost a total of fifty plus pounds and he still continues to lose as well. This metabolic plan has not only helped me but also my family. My husband and I are able to keep up and play with my four-year-old. We can now enjoy doing things with him, as opposed to watching from the side-lines. I believe anyone can benefit from this program. It is amazing! The Metabolism Clinic team is dedicated and truly believes that obesity is not your fault nor a result of laziness. They will be with you step by step through the whole process. I look forward to my continued weight loss and increase in my health. My Best decision ever was to restart my metabolism.
November 2015. I am 51, very overweight. Morbidly obese is where I fall on the medical scale. I am a Critical Care nursing supervisor. I see the consequences of my obesity daily in our patients. Heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and the associated problems that come with diabetes such as loss of limbs, organ failure and blindness. I enjoy life. I try to stay active, long trail walks with the dogs, kayaking and paddle boarding. I do as much as I can as often as I can. I consider each day a blessing because I realize, in the back of my mind, that being 5’ 6” tall and weighing 260 pounds (and growing) is not sustainable. I am acutely aware of my mortality and the great possibility that I will die young, or worse, become permanently disabled. I try working out at the gym, and find myself in extreme joint pain. I find myself winded and nauseous just a mile or so into walks. I find that my feet ache after just 15 minutes on the paddleboard, and if the dog accompanying me on the board causes me to fall in, the swim back to the board leaves me breathless, waiting a while before I can even continue. My joints ache continually-hips, knees, wrist, elbows, shoulders. The hip pain allows me just an hour, maybe 2 before it wakes me out of sleep to turn. Often the other hip is still hurting when I turn, but I can’t breathe if I try to sleep on my back or stomach. I tried dieting, multiple times. Springtime. I’m on the board with my dog Rocco. We paddle for hours, only stopping to play because we want to stop and play. No pain in my feet. I feel hopeful, for the first time in years, that maybe, just maybe I can become healthy and add years to my life instead of subtract years. Friends, family and coworkers all comment on the drastic change in me. I was stopped by one of our trauma surgeons just a few days ago and congratulated on my transformation. At this writing, I am at 178 pounds, 82 pounds from my heaviest. My pants have gone from waist size 42 to 32. My shirts from 2XL to medium. More than this though, I feel great. I feel successful. I feel hopeful for my future.
