Before I started seeing Dr. Sarah, I had diarrhea everyday. I was diagnosed with IBS 30 years ago and have had diarrhea everyday. It had progressed to the point that I was afraid to leave the house in fear of having an accident.

My life has changed dramatically. I have been seeing Dr. Sarah for about 6 weeks when I noticed I no longer had to run to the bathroom. Now, I am not afraid to go on walks around the neighborhood or in parks. My husband and I have started biking agin!.
To say that Dr. Sarah saved my life is not an exaggeration. Thank God I found her!

I’ve been on my Nutrition Response Testing? program for about 4 weeks. I started with Dr. Sarah because my wife was having good results and I was having a hard time with energy. I knew it was diet related but could not get myself to figure it out. I am familiar with muscle testing from years of chiropractic care – where symptoms are traced back to the cause and cured. After 3 weeks my fatigue became almost intolerable. I was becoming forgetful, frustrated, anxious, depressed and couldn’t stay focused on projects. However, aerobic exercise was wonderful. But I couldn’t do the strength training as easily. I had been eating carbohydrates and drinking caffeine trying to get energy, but I couldn’t get energy out of foods anymore. I had a particularly bad day when I couldn’t even confront getting the family Christmas Tree. I believe I got a taste of what Alzheimers must be like with the frustration, anxiety, forgetfulness and depression.

Sarah cut the homeopathic metals in half and within 2 days I felt an energy level I haven’t had in 6 months – or years. I realized after a cup of coffee later that day (habit) that I had not even felt the caffeine buzz or energy surge that comes with it for years. I knew at once that I was on the right path. I recognized that the metals flushing from my system were robbing me of my wits and my energy. I know for certain that it will take time – but I will get my OWN energy back and be on a healthy road again. I wonder if I have found a way around Alzheimers in the future just by purging the metals and complex carbohydrates from my system. I even added a set of reps to my strength exercises and event the extra set was easy. I can’t believe the depth of weakness that metals and carbohydrates have left me with.

Looking forward to getting the rest of my bodily problems addressed!

Probably the biggest difference is the quality of sleep. Before I came, my sleep was really restless – tossing & turning & waking up – sometimes it was difficult to get back to sleep. For the last couple of weeks, my sleep has improved dramatically. I’ve been able to sleep fairly soundly without a tremendous amount of tossing and turning. It seems I’ve been able to sleep soundly without waking for 5-7 house each night. If I have awoken, I’ve been able to get back to sleep within a few minutes.
-EMF

I’ve been seeing Dr. Sarah for about a month now and I’ve already seen improvements in my overall health as well as specific health issues. I’ve felt an overall increase in my energy levels and concentration particularly in the afternoons when I used to feel a drop off. Even things we haven’t been focusing on have improved. I have my nose pierced and I’ve had problems with the piercing getting infected and being red for almost the entire time I’ve had it. Within the last week I’ve noticed that the piercing site is no longer red. I also have seen improvement in the spider veins on my leg that I’ve had for ten years. I’m definitely happy with how things are going!
-A. S.

Before I would feel sick a couple days per week. I thought I ate healthy. I ate at restaurants periodically without getting sick. Often, I felt burning in the evenings.  The last 3 months have been a roller coster; however, I have not felt sick for two weeks. I feel I eat healthier now. I’m very concerned to eat out at a restaurant as I think it will make me sick. I’m learning to bring my own food to parties, but I’ve skipped many social events that are at restaurants. I’m encouraged that I have felt well for two weeks but feel pretty restricted. I’ve lost weight and would like to gain it back. -Laura B.

My health and life was spiraling out of control. I have been struggling with my health on and off my whole life. I had had improvements for awhile then my seizures started getting really bad again and my cancer returned. I fell into a depressive state because I had gotten to the point I was seizure and cancer free. My digestive system has been so out of whack too. I needed a fresh start.

Today I am feeling more energy. I feel hopeful again and though I am not completely healed, my body is making great improvements and that is exciting. I am trying to conquer little wins each day and am finding strength again to fight the good fight! Dr. Sarah has been a great support especially through some really low times-when I was ready to give up, she pushed even more for me to keep on.  I am grateful for all she had done for me and my health.
-Maria H. 

Before coming to see Dr. Sarah I was tired, had low energy and was slow to heal. Now I feel a 70% improvement in fatigue, energy and healing rate.
-Greg P.

Before coming to see Dr. Sarah my blood sugar was hard to control and my nails used to flake and break constantly. Now, I can control my blood sugar much easier even if I eat something with sugar etc. Also, my nails are much stronger. They aren’t breaking and they are much longer than I normally wear them.
-Susan L.

Before coming to Dr. Sarah it was hard to keep my blood sugar under control. It was very random. Now I now exactly what will effect my blood sugar in what way and don’t need as much insulin as well. Last time I went to the doctor my hemoglobin A1C test was the best it’s ever been! -S.L.

Before coming to see Dr. Sarah I had swelling in my right knee and ankle, pain in the knee, morning headaches, joint stiffness. I also had trouble with digestion and was also very sleepy and lethargic. After one week of taking the recommended supplements I do not have swelling in my knee and ankle. I have no pain, headaches or joint stiffness. I have more energy and am sleeping better.
-Cranston J.

I have been following the Nutrition Response testing modality for 16 months now. I am feeling better than I have for several years. I was diagnosed in December 2006 with rheumatoid arthritis, then with low thyroid and then with Epstein Barr disease, along with antibodies in my blood that can lead to stroke. I also have some degeneration in my spine. I had a lot of allergy and sinus issues. In other words, I was a “mess”. Two years ago the doctors decided I did not have rheumatoid arthritis; my test was just a false positive, but that I did have osteoarthritis.

I have severe arthritis in my thumbs, ‘the bones rub on bones’, and in my knees and many other joints. I was receiving injections in my thumbs to help with the pain and wearing braces at night. I could not lift a glass of water with one hand, nor hold a pencil to write.

Today, it is a whole new game.

When I was tested by Dr Sarah, she told me my body could not tolerate certain foods. She helped me locate the foods that where contributing to my problems. I have become quite a food detective when I go grocery shopping. I always read the label. I also limit my intake of foods that have been linked to inflammation.

My allergies are 100% better.

After 16 months I feel incredibly well. I no longer have all those aches and pains. I can lift a glass with one hand. I can use a pen. I can get up from a chair without using the arm rests. My feet and knees don’t hurt with every step.

My body lets me know if I ‘fall off the wagon’ (with my diet). Also, my thyroid function is better. The antibodies that cause stroke are back at a “good” level.

Thank you Dr Sarah for helping me get my life back.

Before visiting Dr. Sarah and Dr. Rob at Metro Chiropractic, my weight was spiraling out of control somewhere around 245 pounds, the heaviest I had ever been, I wasn’t sleeping at night, constantly getting up to go to bathroom at night, and also throughout the day, I was going more frequently than I had ever before. I also had some very bad acid reflux after eating meals. Within a month of visiting, Dr. Sarah had set me up with my specialized meal program and supplements for my program that produced results. The acid reflux was gone, I wasn’t going to the bathroom as much and I was sleeping much better, and most importantly I was losing weight in a healthy manner and my friends and family really took notice.

After visiting Metro Chiropractic for about a month, I decided as long as I am at the chiropractors office I will have my back looked at, I had some minor pain in my lower back, and also in my neck but nothing that I thought was too serious, with the help of Dr. Rob and his staff, they detected some abnormalities to my spine that would ease the pain I was having in my back and neck. Along with the balanced diet that I have been on for months, I have lost 20 pounds and have kept it off and plan to lose more.

Both of these Dr.’s have been just great to work with and honestly I don’t know where I would be right now if I haven’t made this change. I recommend them to everyone I know and tell my friends and acquaintances what a wonderful job they do. So to the both of them I say thank you! -Chris B.

I’ve lost weight and I have no digestion problems. I have more energy, no colds, my immune system is better, and my blood pressure is down.
-Mena M.

Improvements I have noticed: skin, hair, complexion, anxiety level, self-assurance, improved digestive system, increased energy, overall health, better eating habits, and better health awareness.
-Nicole M.

Since going to Dr. Puskar, I have lost weight, and reached my goal! I have much more energy, less headaches, etc. Another big point is antibiotic use. I have not needed an antibiotic for months, and that is wonderful. My children are a big element in my life, and Dr. Puskar has given us our lives back. No more hospital admissions, sleepless nights, etc. My eldest child even asks for his supplements.
-Suzie Adams

I have been seeing Dr. Puskar for 2 years, and have noticed an improvement in my joint pain, intestinal disorder, cholesterol, weight loss, and blood pressure. Before I came to Dr. Puskar, I was using a lot of anti-inflammatory drugs, but since I have been using her protocol I have not needed to use any of those drugs. I have more energy than I have had in years. Evelyn A.
My all around health is better in a short amount of time.
-Nancy L.

I have much more energy, weight loss, more confidence, and feel better overall. I am anxious for the bimonthly appointments and I do not mind knowing what else can be found wrong with me, because I know Dr. Puskar will take it care of.
-Melanie D.

Dr. Puskar has helped me to address nutritional issues at this stage of my life as well as certain health issues of concern such as migraine headaches, stress, cholesterol, and weight concerns. As well as generalized health improvement.
-M. G.

Within one year of seeing Dr, Puskar, I have noticed many changes in my body, scars have peeled, lumps have disappeared, my hernia has disappeared, along with the hernia in my belly button, my hair grows like crazy, my nails are stronger, mental attitude has improved, and I even went from a 44C bra to a 38C on the second hook.
-C. G.

I have been able to watch my diet more carefully, eat better and healthier, and have become aware of “bad foods”. I have lost 12 pounds since I started, and my indigestion concerns are much improved.
-Susan G.

I suffer from Crohn’s Disease, and since seeing Dr. Puskar my cholesterol vs. triglycerides have been reversed, I have the ability to eat salads without the fear of doubling over or spending hours in discomfort, and I realized I was eating too many carbs vs. protein.
-Cheryl

Since seeing Dr. Puskar, my hot flashes have been taken care of; I have lost weight, which I did not even come for. The very painful Bursitis in my shoulder has also been taken care of. Most of the pain I have suffered in the past has been resolved through the Thyroid supplements. -Gloria C.

Prior to seeing Dr. Puskar, I had chronic fatigue. Now I have more energy. I have lost 20 pounds, and I do not have to take as many pain medications. -Dolores K.

Since seeing Dr. Puskar, I have been able to drink more water, eat less junk food, pay closer attention to food labels, eat more vegetables, and use more seasonings.
-Bonnie D.

Upon being seen in Dr. Puskar’s office, I was tired; I ached all over, and carried extra pounds. After two months, my energy has increased, I am losing weight and my overall outlook on myself has improved, and my stamina is much better than it was in the beginning. -Sharon M.

Since seeing Dr. Puskar, I am beginning to look at food in a different light. Rather than as a solution to problems, I see it as a means to becoming healthy as I get older/ I am learning slowly to make wiser food choices and in doing so learning to hear and feel how my body reacts to what I ingest. I also like the one-on-one approach with someone whom I feel cares… I do not feel fatigued or generally depressed anymore.
-Judith S.

Dr. Puskar has made me more aware of the lack of nutrition I have been eating, and getting me back on track with wholesome food and how satisfied you feel when you eat that way. She has also helped to change my mind set on fats, something I always watched.
-L.S.

Since seeing Dr Puskar, I have noticed a positive change in my stomach problems, including less gas, I feel better, and I am no longer on my Acid Reflux medications.
-Karen M.

When I first came here I was very tired, my stomach used to bloat out so far I looked like I was about 5 or 6 month pregnant. I was just very unhappy with how I looked and felt. Now, although I only lost 8lbs, all my pants have gotten very baggy on me and I am now back in my skinny clothes. My stomach isn’t bloated anymore, even my fingers don’t swell as much. I have more energy and my stress level has gone down a lot. I realize I have more to go but I know at this rate I will have no problem getting there thanks to the people at the Nutritional Healing Center and their knowledge of the body, finding what’s wrong and knowing what it will take to fix it.
-Sharon H.

For several years, I felt extremely tired all the time. I had no motivation or stamina to get things done. Sometimes, I would be so tired, I couldn’t focus or concentrate on anything. I also had problems with a sour stomach and gassy bowels. The Nutritional Healing Center changed all of that. It has been an eye opening experience for me. I learned how much my diet, and how the right supplements, could change my problems.

Now, I have more energy and stamina than ever and my stomach and bowels feel better too. Most of all, Dr Lori, April and the friendly staff are dedicated and have the knowledge to get you under way to a life changing experience.
-Robin T.

Before I came to the NHC I no longer fit in my skinny jeans, not my period jeans. I was tired all the time. I had no energy or motivation to do what I had to do let alone what I wanted to do. Now I have energy and I’m cleaning out my house doing all the things I let lay. I am motivated to do them and I’m getting it done. My mind is clearer than ever, having clarity of thought. And even my eye sight is less cloudy. I feel like that song “I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.” And now my period pants are big and I fit comfortably in my skinny jeans. All the pants I bought last summer (my fat jeans) are pretty huge. When I run in them I have to hold them up. I can say that changing my eating habits and not cheating, along with the supplements, has changed my life. Thank you Dr. Puskar. I thank God for you.
-Patrice

The Nutritional Healing Center has helped me tremendously in a very short period of time. I feel better in general. I have more energy. I am more active resulting in significant weight loss in just 3 to 4 weeks. My attitude towards eating has changed and nutritionally I am making better food choices for my new lifestyle change. Thank you Nutritional Healing Center and Staff. You are the best!
-Ann Marie

I attended a group meeting with Dr. Lori held at a friend’s house who swears by the process. After attending the meeting and hearing what Dr. Lori had to offer I felt I needed to give it a try. I had some concerns about my weight, tiredness, energy and other problems I felt she may be able to help with. I have to say as of this testimonial I have lost two pant sizes (38 to a 36) where I wanted to be. I have more energy and have no problems staying alert. The tiredness basically “went away”. I must say it’s amazing what can be accomplished in such a short period of time with the right direction and nurturing that was given by Dr. Puskar and her staff. I am very thankful for their help and expertise.
-G.M.

My Name is Mary G. and I have been coming to Dr. Lori for just 3 short weeks and it has changed my life for the better. I work retail and by 2:00 in the afternoon I would be wishing for a nap already. Every day felt like a constant struggle to get through my busy day. I was taught to believe that this was normal; if you worked hard you were expected to be tired. Since I came to Dr. Lori, I feel better. I can breeze through my day without thinking how much more I have to do before I could rest. Christmas is the most stressed time of the year in my job. Usually by Christmas Day I am exhausted and sick, and really don’t get to enjoy the holiday and my family. This year was much better. I have not changed my diet radically. I have followed what Dr. Lori has told me to: avoid the things that my body did not like. It is working! I have more energy, I feel better and it is helping my marriage. My husband works second shift and I don’t get to see him until after 10 PM. Usually I would be so tired I really didn’t want to be bothered and would get “cranky” if he wanted me to stay up and spend some time with him. The one girl that I work with noticed a difference in me. She asked me what’s going on that I was in such a good mood. Thank you Dr. Lori for all your help. I never want to feel the way I used to. Tired, miserable and depressed were normal, but I don’t want to feel that way anymore. God Bless Dr. Lori and the staff of the Nutritional Healing Center. -Mary G.

Before coming to Dr. Puskar, I was certain that the next time I visited my family doctor she would put me on cholesterol medication. Well, to my amazement, after my blood work I was within range that I didn’t need to take the medication. I was determined not to go the standard way of taking a pill that would have twice as many side effects. I know now by coming to the Nutritional Healing Center and working one on one with Dr. Puskar I’ll have a healthy life using natural products. -Sally M.

Prior to treatment, I found myself so exhausted that I could hardly function. I have two small children and could barely complete the “usual” daily routines, let alone anything extra. All I wanted to do was sleep and I was well aware of how apathetic I had become. I was tired no matter how much sleep I got. Since I started taking the recommended supplements and following my program guidelines, I feel like I did prior to having children. I wake up with energy, enjoy my children, and have pursued interests that I was too exhausted to even think about before. I truly thank Dr. Puskar and her staff for helping me to feel so well!
-Susan B.

I suffered from migraines all of my life. I took a lot of medicine for my headaches. I have been coming her for 3 weeks now. Taking the supplements and changing my eating habits and I haven’t taken any medicine for my headaches for 3 weeks now.
