Please briefly describe your journey to better health and wellness with WHNC.
- What was your wellness / health like before you came in to see us?
Before I came to WHNC, I was on medications for high blood pressure and chronic pain. I experienced numerous GI symptoms, including feeling very uncomfortable after eating, bloating, gas and constipation. I felt depressed and knew my eating habits were out of control. I knew I was in poor nutritional status. I knew I needed assistance to help me to change my poor health habits into healthier ones.
- How has WHNC improved your quality of life? What have you learned? How do you feel?
Now, I feel great! With encouragement, I was able to give up caffeine, and as a result am off my blood pressure medications. My GI symptoms are also gone-GONE! Something I thought I would never say. I still have chronic pain but it has decreased, I am taking less pain medication and am learning to use nutritional alternatives to deal with my chronic pain. I am learning to cook healthier foods and am trting new foods and techniques, such as spiralizing vegetables!
