Beating migraines and medication
By: Sheila O.
For years, I had suffered from migraines. This led to seizures and to TiA's. No doctor could give me the reason why or help me. All I got was more medicine (I was up to 14 pills every day).
After one month I am now down to three in the morning and two at night. I haven't had any seizures and have only had a few migraines. Compared to before, I am able to get out of bed for a reason. I have my life back!!
Finally taking charge
By: Steve H.
I feel like I've finally gotten a road map to a better life. I've been losing weight and feeling better, more alive. I've also found myself feeling less stressed out with the daily grind. I've been able to take charge of situations which would normally send me into a panic.
Losing pounds, fixing my scoliosis and kicked my medications
By: Stephen H.
I knew I had a problem and it was going to take a long time and money. My back has been in pain for four years. Mainly due to football injuries. My neck was nearly curving the wrong way. On the fourth week of care my pain was gone and I had more energy to do things.
My scoliosis is now from 11 degrees to 5 degrees. To date I take no medications for my back pain (I took four Ibuprofen a day or more in the past!) and take no allergy medicine. I have also lost a considerable amount of weight which is still coming off.
Nutrition plans that changed my family's lives
By: Lisa A.
I don't even know if I can completely express just how much this program has changed my life!
I have a completely different view of food now. I don't think of it simply as something to eat because I am hungry. I have a new mindset about how food fuels my body and how to combine different foods in a way that will fuel my body to keep up with the demands of my life.
As you know, our whole family is on board and the kids are loving it! They are sleeping better and are less cranky without the processed foods and so much sugar. We have broken a cycle for them. It has become who we are now.
Overcoming depression, fibromyalgia and chronic sickness
By: Lisa G.
My body was ravaged by sickness and disease, my lifestyle was horrifically unhealthy, and I felt like I imagined people do when they are 90. All of this at just 31.
I had struggled with various health issues since childhood, but still never dreamed it could get as bad as it did. I had a laundry list of problems: chronic sinusitis and bronchitis, allergies, migraine headaches, digestive problems, menstrual problems, insomnia, joint pain, sciatica and got an average six to eight viral infections a year. I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which brought with it muscle pain and weakness, crushing pain in my hands and feet, profound exhaustion, difficulty concentrating and focusing and even hair loss.
Basically, everything hurt all the time.
I was taking all sorts of different prescriptions and over-the-counter medications every single day. I was overweight and was struggling with an eating disorder. I had also been told by various doctors that I would have to be on antidepressants for the rest of my life to deal with depression. Not a very pretty picture.
At that point, I had no hope.
After about two months [of Maximized Living care], my health started improving—much to my surprise. Today, I am the healthiest I have ever been! I take no medications for anything. I have no more allergies, no more sinusitis, no more bronchitis, no more migraines, no more digestive or menstrual problems, no more insomnia, my hair quit falling out, and my pain levels have dramatically decreased. Some days, I have no pain at all! I have been delivered from depression, no longer have an eating disorder, and have lost over 40 pounds and am still losing.
My life has been truly transformed.
And through all of this, I have discovered my purpose, my passion, and my destiny. I have discovered who I am.
Reliable healthy living
By: Wendy W.
I feel I now have a reliable plan to live a healthy lifestyle for myself and my family. I get to make healthy choices—or not—and it all falls into the plan. This has given me a lot of freedom, especially to tell people I'm not on a diet, I'm just making healthier choices, which feels great.
Restoring my strength
By: Jenny T.
On January 29, 2004, I herniated the disc between L5-S1 vertebrae just by sneezing three times. In an instant life as I knew it was over. My back locked up and I began to feel numbness in my right calf and foot. I was screaming when I finally made it to the emergency room. I was given pain pills and muscle relaxers to mask the pain and was told my spine was fine.
In May of 2004 x-rays showed incredible degeneration and damage. My spine literally looked like a question mark and I was only 30!!
In the four months that I have been under care here, I have made tremendous progress! I am so amazed. My numbness is almost entirely gone. I can lift, carry and even chase my son; I can walk several miles; and I have even begun weight training. My husband and I are truly grateful.
