Weight Loss

I had a list of things I wanted to work on when I came to Dr. Sowerby –

  • High blood pressure (it would spike even though I was on medication)
  • Weight loss
  • Snoring
  • Overall sick feeling most of the time
  • Getting up many times in the night to use the bathroom

Now, after beginning my nutrition program less than 6 weeks ago, I have lost 15 lbs.; I sleep better and I don’t have to get up to use the bathroom AND my blood pressure is normal!

For the first time in a long time I feel like my body is in balance and my digestive system is better!

I did not have much energy, my arthritis was bad, I could not lose weight and I had heartburn. I had no energy or strength to walk long distance, my blood pressure was high and I had an underactive thyroid that I did not know about.

Since coming to see Dr. Sowerby I feel much healthier, I have a lot more energy, my arthritis is milder, I’m losing weight and the thyroid vitamins are helping me a lot. I’m walking long distance, my heartburn is not as bad and I’m hoping my blood pressure is going down. I recommend Dr. Sowerby highly to others!

I was told I had an over-active thyroid.  One doctor wanted to burn out my thyroid and another put me on high doses of iodine which only made me feel worse.  Still another doctor said I should take a drug and get off the iodine.  I was confused about what treatment was right.

My bones ached, I was nervous and on edge.  My bowel movements were not good, I was losing a lot of hair and I was not sleeping much.

I came to Dr. Sowerby because I wanted to get my thyroid at a healthy level without medication.

I was feeling better within 3 weeks!

Now I feel good, I’m not nervous and my emotions are stable.  My bones don’t ache and my quality of sleep has improved.  Dr. Sowerby is going to start helping me with my hair loss and I know he can help me with that also.

I recommend him to everyone I know!

UPDATE -My blood work was done 1 month ago and it was perfect.  My thyroid is great and I am so happy I came here!

Even though I was on thyroid medication, my hair still fell out and I suffered underlying fatigue and hypersensitivity to cold.  I had been to many doctors, but they could only offer prescription drugs.  I was also continuously breaking out in hives and none of the doctors could figure out why.

When I came to Dr. Sowerby, he found through muscle testing [and Nutrition Response Testing] that my diet was affecting my thyroid, which in turn was causing my hive issue.  After just a short time I realized I was beginning to feel much better.

My hair is no longer falling out and I rarely break out in hives.  As an added bonus, my sensitivity to cold is disappearing.  On top of all that I have a sense of well-being and even when under stress I stay more calm and relaxed.

I started seeing Dr. Sowerby last fall after I received my blood work    results from my gynecologist indicating that I had hypothyroidism.  My mother has had problems with her thyroid for years and explained how terrible thyroid medications were and how they caused your thyroid to stop working.  I did not want to take that route with medications since I am only 30 years old and refuse to take a pill the rest of my life for my thyroid.

I went to one of Dr. Sowerby’s thyroid seminars and decided to make an appointment to see if he could help my thyroid.

I also had issues with lack of energy and indigestion that I hoped could also be addressed.

Before I came to Dr Sowerby I was feeling run down and my back hurt.  I work outside and I wore sunglasses all the time and tried to stay in the shade as much as possible.

Since beginning my (Nutrition Response Testing) program and taking the supplements Dr Sowerby suggested I am now able to withstand the heat much easier.  I am not always looking for shade!

I have lots of energy and find that I look forward to physical work!  I have more stamina and don’t feel lethargic.

I have also lost 27 pounds!  I watch my portion size and cut out dairy products after finding out I was having an allergic reaction.

I haven’t felt this good in years!

I was feeling terrible.  I didn’t have much energy and was in quite a bit of pain.  I was not able to walk or exercise.  Then I started seeing Dr. Sowerby.

I noticed improvement in my condition after about the 2nd visit of my program.  The supplements are really working!

I have no trouble walking now and have a lot more energy, and overall am feeling good.   I can get right out of bed and am ready to go in the morning.

Since starting my Nutrition Response Testing program, I am eating a lot differently and watch my diet.   I have lost about 25 lbs.   I have even had to buy myself new slacks!

I was diagnosed with bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  I have an EpiPen and I carried a spare bag of medications everywhere I went.  I had headaches and fatigue, and I always seemed to be      hungry.  I took Benadryl daily to be able to breathe through my nose, and drank tons of coffee to deal with the sleepiness caused by the Benadryl.  I used nasal sprays constantly, and I developed an addiction to it.

After my first visit with Dr. Sowerby for Nutrition Response Testing, I went home and told my husband it seemed like a lot of hocus pocus.  I didn’t understand it all but I thought I should give it a try.

By my second visit, I had already noticed a positive change in how I felt.  I was able to eat a meal without having to use nasal spray for the first time in a very long time!  Now I am off the nasal sprays and the Benadryl!

My chronic allergy symptoms made me depressed because I was always sniffing and sneezing, and as a result I became a shut-in.  That has all changed and I go out now.  My depression is gone!

I have lost 12 pounds.  I am more aware now of what I am eating because I am filling out daily food intake records, but I exerted very little effort toward weight loss.

My brain fog is gone and I have stopped biting my nails.  The arthritic joints in my fingers used to ache but not any more.

Menopausal symptoms are much better.  My husband has noticed a big change in my moods and temperament.

I am always telling others about Dr. Sowerby!
