SHAPE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!
Several months ago one of our SHAPE family brought a review to our attention by ConsumerCompare.org. To say it was scathing is an understatement. After three months, 53 emails back and forth and a 55 min conversation with Darius, the final draft is attached in the link below. While we are grateful for their revisions, there are still a ton of false statements and referencing others they should not.

We have kept our legal team advised and at this point we believe our best recourse is to bombard their review with our opinions
refuting what they have reported.

https://consumerscompare.org/shape-reclaimed-review/

We have also attached our RED LINE EDITS to refute their claims. I apologize for the scary length of this draft but feel you need to
know how we responded and
what we are all up against!
Internet madness…

PLEASE, PLEASE HELP US BY RESPONDING TO THEIR REVIEW.
SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM AND POST AS A GUEST.
(JONATHAN IS OUR BUSINESS STRATEGIST WHOM YOU
WILL ALL MEET AT THE SYMPOSIUM IN JANUARY)

All new practitioners added under an existing SHAPE umbrella will be required to purchase their own PTG and complete a 60-90 min training.
PRACTITIONER INVOLVEMENT
We’ve just crossed 15,000 FB members and it is more and more challenging to monitor posts. If you are a member of our FB group, we would appreciate your involvement. Let’s show our WARRIORS you care enough to chime in. If you see a post that is questionable, add your SHAPE appropriate perspective. If you see something alarming, go to the little arrow at the top right corner of the post and report the post to admin. It instantly gets pulled out of the feed until we review to determine if we need to address or delete. Often times we simply need to clarify an answer and add it back to the feed and shut down commenting. Other times we delete the post and the member if we come to the conclusion they are inappropriate or a spammer!

Laura W. Victory Story
By Dr. Shelley Radosta

Years of yo-yo dieting, menopause and gradual weight gain took control of my 60 year old body. I had been a competitive cyclist, a runner (albeit not the fastest runner in the world), but it had gotten to the point that every step I ran was painful.  I had regressed to 2 minute running, one minute walking for my long distance runs.  Each of those running minutes was agony.  In January 2016, I ‘ran’ my slowest half marathon ever in just under 3 hours.  On top of that, I had a closet full of clothes I could no longer wear.  I was depressed, tired, and feeling hopeless.
I had hit my wall.

Congratulations to Dr. Jason Row on his 4th of July baby girl!

Nugget of Knowledge
By Dr. Beth Bartlett

This seems like a simple concept, but at least once a day, I have to remind myself to ALWAYS LISTEN to my patients.  No matter who is sitting in front of me or what the condition they suffer, EVERYONE HAS A STORY.   It is important to listen to that story….this is the moment a trusting relationship is established and healing begins.

After completing one 6 week round of SHAPE ReClaimed, the following improvements were noted on 11/20/2014:

In the Ortho Molecular Questionnaire:

Headaches                            Marked as “Better”, no number assigned

Acne                                      Remained the same at 1

Pain/Aches lower back         Improved from 4 to 1

Arthritis                                 Remained the same at 2

Overweight                          Improved from 2 to 1

Difficulty losing weight         Improved from 3 to 1

Constipation                        Improved from 2 to 1

Bloated feeling                    Improved from 2 to 1

Blood Analysis: Revealed a BUN normal at 23, and BUN/Creatinine ratio of 34 H, but because the initial lipid panel was done at the hospital, ranges were different, and, there was no improvement in the lipid panel or BUN/Creatinine Ratio after the first round.  Also noted were normal TSH and T4 and CBC.

Cholesterol                             174mg/dL                            (Range:110-200)

LDL                                         92mg/dL                              (Range:0-99)

HDL                                        68mg/dL                              (Range:>39)

TSH                                        0.079 L                                  (Range:0.360-3.740)

T4, Free                                 1.04                                        (Range:0.76-1.46)

Re-exam and measurements:

WEIGHT               123 pounds

NECK                     11.5”

R ARM                  10.75”

L ARM                   11”

UPPER CHEST     32.75”

BUST                     34.75”

MIDRIFF               30”

WAIST                   28”

HIPS                       37.75”

R THIGH               16.5”

R KNEE                  14”

R CALF                  13.25”

L THIGH                16”

L KNEE                  14”

L CALF                   13.5”

These numbers reflect 19.5 pounds of weight lost, and 29.75 inches lost from 9/16/2014 to 11/20/2014.

BMI improved 3.48 points to 21.96, and % of fat improved 2.3 points to 38.7%, and total pound of fat improved 10.5 pounds to 47.5 pounds of fat.

Patient returned 19 months later after feeling like she had started to eat some things that were not agreeing with her, and felt like she had re-gained inches she had lost, with just a four pound gain in that time.  She also remarked that her joints, knees especially did not feel as good as they did while taking SHAPE. We began her on another round of SHAPE to help alleviate the achiness, cleanse her system, and help reduced the inches she had regained, which totaled 8.75”.

NECK                     11.75”

R ARM                  11”

L ARM                   11.25”

UPPER CHEST     33.5”

BUST                     35”

MIDRIFF               31”

WAIST                   32”

HIPS                       37.75”

R THIGH               16.75”

R KNEE                  13.75”

R CALF                  13.5”

L THIGH                16.5”

L KNEE                  13.75”

L CALF                   13.5”

Between June 20, 2016 and August 31, 2016, we recorded the following improvements at end of program and re-exam:

WEIGHT:              121

NECK                     11.75”

R ARM                  10.5”

L ARM                   10.5”

UPPER CHEST     32.25”

BUST                     34.5”

MIDRIFF               30.25”

WAIST                   29”

HIPS                       36.75”

R THIGH               16.5”

R KNEE                  13.75”

R CALF                  13.5”

L THIGH                16.5”

L KNEE                  14”

L CALF                   13.5”

This was a net result of an additional 1.25 inches lost from initial round loss, and an additional 2 pound loss from the initial round.

Patient had a hard time getting her calories up above the 1000 calorie mark. Patient remarked that 800-900 calories feels comfortable, and that at 1000 calories she feels “stuffed” on 8/10/16.  Patient also remarked again that knees and thumb arthritis do not hurt at all when taking the drops. She asked if she could do a medicinal dose of the drops.  We told her we would discuss after her follow-up labs on 8/12/16.  Patient went out of town, and came for labs on 9/15/2016. ROF for 9/15/16 lab abnormals are as follows:

BUN                                       28mg/dL              (Range: 8-27)

BUN/Creatinine Ratio            39                        (Range 11-26)

Cholesterol                            257mg/dL            (Range: 100-199)

LDL                                       144mg/dL            (Range: 0-99)

Cholesterol/HDL Ratio           2.6                      (Range: ½ Average Risk for Women is 3.3)

HDL                                        97                      (Range:>39)

Most noticeable with these numbers is that even with the elevated cholesterol and LDL, patient’s Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio is still at 2.6, which is approximately ¼ of risk for heart disease (Range: ½ Average Risk for Women is 3.3).  Patient was travelling and eating out of the ordinary for the two weeks prior to the lab draw.  We allowed the patient to start a medicinal dose (.5ml) of drops once a day to help with the knee and arthritis pain.  We monitored her monthly for 3 months, with urinalysis and consult.  Both months patient reported feeling great, and remarking that she was still between 900-1000 caloric intake a day.  On 10/19/2016, we did spot measurements; patient was up about ¼ inch in the waist and hips.  She reported she was not swimming as she had been and would return to that exercise.  She continued to bike and walk. We recommended UA monitoring with each bottle of drops she purchased for relief of joint issues, and this was anywhere from 3-4 months.  The most recent purchase was in April 2017.

In June of 2017, while at the hospital clinic where the patient works, the patient, now 70 years old, approached us and could not believe the benefits of continuing with medicinal dosage of SHAPE.  She reported that her cholesterol values had continued to drop, and that her primary care physician was extremely pleased with her numbers.  She reported that she continued to eat Phase II foods mainly, with the occasional indulgences.  She reported that she felt better than she had in 20 years.  The following are the metabolic panel from CGH Medical Center lab 5/13/17:

Cholesterol                              174mg/dL                            (Range:110-200)

LDL                                         84mg/dL                              (Range:0-99)

Cholesterol/HDL Ratio            2.02                                     (Range: ½ Average Risk for Women is 3.3)

TSH                                        0.079 L                                (Range:0.360-3.740)

T4, Free                                 1.04                                      (Range:0.76-1.46)

Discussion:  The use of this homeopathy formula for anti-inflammatory purposes, along with her dietary changes, has helped this patient greatly.  This is a good example of an additional use for this product in maintaining health, healthy lipid values and reducing arthritic pain.

dr. todd’s teaching assessment:

So often we assume with our patients of advancing age that they simply must expect to have symptoms. Age is not and should not be a road block to gaining better health.
The numbers speak for themselves. It is always exciting to see practitioners think beyond weight loss. SHAPE is so much more and taking a maintenance dose of .5 ml once daily or twice (if need be) can be very effective to reduce symptomotology.
A side note on labs: remember, they are simply a window into where the patient is at, at that moment the blood was drawn. Although valuable, I always suggest treating patients first and blood tests second.

Laura W. Victory By Dr. Shelley Radosta http://shapereclaimed.com/laura-w-victory-by-dr-shelley-radosta/ Thu, 29 Jun 2017 16:14:03 +0000 http://shapereclaimed.com/?p=8722 Years of yo-yo dieting, menopause and gradual weight gain took control of my 60 year old body. I had been a competitive cyclist, a runner (albeit not the fastest runner in the world), but it had gotten to the point that every step I ran was painful.  I had regressed to 2 minute running, one minute walking for my long distance runs.  Each of those running minutes was agony.  In January 2016, I ‘ran’ my slowest half marathon ever in just under 3 hours.  On top of that, I had a closet full of clothes I could no longer wear.  I was depressed, tired, and feeling hopeless. I had hit my wall.

My wonderful practitioner had sent a postcard about SHAPE in December 2015.  But at that time I wasn’t ready…. I wasn’t ready to fail yet another ‘diet’.  By the end of January, I knew that I had to give it a try.  I started my SHAPE ReClaimed journey, with a most supportive husband at my side.  Even though he was skeptical of the lack of carbs, I told him to not worry about it, but to trust the plan.  He was the family chef and was very careful to cook to the guidelines in the guidebook.  I was so fortunate to have him on my team and not trying to sabotage my efforts.  Ten pounds were released in the first couple weeks. I was feeling so good, I continued on and was able to start Maintenance in July of 2016 after reaching my goal.  Much slower weight loss than most, but in my mind, it was a miracle.  In January of 2017, I ran that same half marathon 34 pounds lighter and 29 minutes faster than a year earlier.  That was a victory moment.

This program has ingrained into me what I should be eating.  This is not a diet, but a lifestyle.  This is the ONLY time I have ever felt that way about a plan.  I am happy to say that I have managed to stay within three pounds of my goal weight.  It takes weighing/measuring and commitment to healthy eating, but it is worth it to have ReClaimed my SHAPE and my health again.

I thank God that this program is available and that my wonderful practitioner, Dr. Shelley Radosta, made it available to us in Louisiana.

Some Non-Scale Victories (NSV):

I feel healthy and strong.

I can RUN again!

I don’t feel suffocated by my stomach pushing into my lungs when I sit.

I can fit into clothes that I had in my attic that I never thought would fit me again.

I can comfortably sit in airplane seats (as comfortable as anyone can)!

My thighs don’t rub anymore.

I don’t feel embarrassed when I see someone that I haven’t seen in a while.

I have gained back the confidence to know that I can do it!  I can!!
