My total cholesterol was 289 and my HDL (good) cholesterol was 35. I knew it was time for a change. I made the diet/lifestyle changes that Barb suggested and added a daily fish oil supplement. After only six weeks on the program my total cholesterol came down to 212 and my HDL was now up to 50.

After twelve weeks my cholesterol was 175 and my HDL remains at 50. I continue with the lifestyle changes that Barb helped to implement and I no longer take statins to control my cholesterol.

Sugar, not fat, has contributed to the obesity epidemic. This is a “hands-on” program designed to help employees learn the impact that sugar has on their health. Sugar affects learning, causes blood sugar to spike, lowers immunity, and increases the risk of heart disease. Empower employees by educating them on the impact that sugar has on their health.
June 2011 is when I first decided to take my health into my own hands. I was at my heaviest, hated looking in the mirror, and age 50 was fast approaching. My first challenge was to get off acid reflux medication which I had been on for about 8 years. My next goal was to get down to a healthy weight.

Barb worked with me for weeks healing my gut, I honestly didn’t think she could – I was not a believer but I gave it a shot and worked with her for several weeks. October is when I was ready to stop taking my medication. It worked and I no longer needed to take acid reflux medications.
