The body is naturally expanding because it is dehydrated and the cells want more water inside the cell, rather than outside the cell.  The cell wall functions as a gradient, so the cell wall will open up and allow water to come inside the cell, only in the presence of minerals.

A couple of suggestions to increase these minerals:  utilize the trace mineral product, pH ReClaimed and/or Celtic Sea Salt.

Brandi G’s Victory Story
By Serena Kumar, NP’s WARRIOR

I began SHAPE ReClaimed in November of 2017 hoping to kick start some much needed weight loss.  After having two children and putting myself last for several years, my weight had topped out at 236 pounds.  I was tired, my feet hurt, my energy was non-existent and though tired, I was having trouble sleeping at night.  My health care provider and I had danced around the subject each time she checked my blood work, and finally one day I said “today is the day.”   I started the following day – following the program to a tee.  I was really worried about feeling hungry and that I was going to have to give up some of my comfort foods including my flavored creamer in my coffee and bagels, but knew I needed to do this for me and my family.

A Dietitian’s Nugget of Knowledge
By Beverly Prentice, MS, RDN/LD

A good doctor recognizes and treats illness, while a great doctor promotes overall health and wellness with an integrative/functional medicine approach.  Traditionally, physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners were the primary medical team members who performed health and physical assessments, yet other allied health professionals are specifically trained to provide critical portions specific to their disciplines.  For example, registered dietitians are trained to offer nutrition-focused physical exams that consider body systems, muscle and fat stores, oral health, swallow/breathing, appetite, and the affect of pharmaceuticals in food and drug interactions and nutrient depletion.  Enhancing your SHAPE practitioner toolbox with continuing education that enables you to provide nutrition-focused physical assessments may improve patient outcomes in your practice.

Brandi G’s Victory By Serena Kumar, NP’s WARRIOR http://shapereclaimed.com/brandi-gs-victory-by-serena-kumar-nps-warrior/ Tue, 03 Jul 2018 20:10:35 +0000 http://shapereclaimed.com/?p=9534 I began SHAPE ReClaimed in November of 2017 hoping to kick start some much needed weight loss.  After having two children and putting myself last for several years, my weight had topped out at 236 pounds.  I was tired, my feet hurt, my energy was non-existent and though tired, I was having trouble sleeping at night.  My health care provider and I had danced around the subject each time she checked my blood work, and finally one day I said “today is the day.”   I started the following day – following the program to a tee.  I was really worried about feeling hungry and that I was going to have to give up some of my comfort foods including my flavored creamer in my coffee and bagels, but knew I needed to do this for me and my family.

What I found was within 3 days, I was already feeling the positive effects of eating clean.  I wasn’t waking up with headaches each morning. I did not experience any of my typical “morning fog”, and I was able to focus at work throughout the day in a way I had not experienced in a long time.  At my first check-in, I was astounded that I had already lost several pounds!   As the weeks passed, I was not feeling any sugar cravings at all, was not missing my old carb-heavy diet and the pounds continued to shed regularly week after week.  I did not experience any hunger due to the clean protein-filled food I was now fueling my body with.

I continued with SHAPE ultimately losing just over 50 pounds!

I am currently in Phase III.  I continue to actually want to eat clean with only a couple of splurges – ones I really had to think about if I really wanted to do.  My body handled it just fine, and I was able to get back on the wagon right away.  I plan to continue with maintenance through the summer months, and then do SHAPE once more to get me to my goal weight.

My family notices a new confidence in me and a real shift in attitude.  I find I’m sleeping better, I’m more focused, my emotions are more stable, and I just generally feel GOOD for the first time in a long time.  I recently had blood work done again, and I’m proud to share that each of my levels we track had all shown so much improvement!  I’m looking forward to continuing to be healthy in the years to come and 50 pounds lighter!

I would recommend SHAPE ReClaimed to anyone who is serious about making changes in their life.

A Dietitian’s Nugget of Knowledge By Beverly Prentice, MS, RDN/LD http://shapereclaimed.com/a-dietitians-nugget-of-knowledge-by-beverly-prentice-ms-rdnld/ Tue, 03 Jul 2018 19:56:14 +0000 http://shapereclaimed.com/?p=9530 A good doctor recognizes and treats illness, while a great doctor promotes overall health and wellness with an integrative/functional medicine approach.  Traditionally, physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners were the primary medical team members who performed health and physical assessments, yet other allied health professionals are specifically trained to provide critical portions specific to their disciplines.  For example, registered dietitians are trained to offer nutrition-focused physical exams that consider body systems, muscle and fat stores, oral health, swallow/breathing, appetite, and the affect of pharmaceuticals in food and drug interactions and nutrient depletion.  Enhancing your SHAPE practitioner toolbox with continuing education that enables you to provide nutrition-focused physical assessments may improve patient outcomes in your practice.  Healthcare practitioners working with SHAPE patients may wish to consider investing in Nutrition Focused Physical Assessment: Making Clinical Connections by Mary D. Litchford, PhD, RDN, LDN as a reference text or a 14 CE Level III self-study course.  The book is intended to provide science-based information to assist advanced level practitioners in identifying and addressing potential macro and micronutrient deficiencies associated with recognizable changes in skin, hair, mouth, tongue, and nails.  I realize that medical professionals are often pressed for time, but providing nutrition-focused physical exams and considering the possible impact of medications causes practitioners to recognize outward signs of macro or micronutrient deficiencies.

Many “chronic dieters” come in with hormone imbalances and metabolic dysfunction due to years of yo-yo dieting.  They may not be successful, even with the SHAPE program, until some of their under-lying issues are effectively addressed.  Physicians are encouraged to refer patients to registered dietitians (RDs) who act as medical nutrition therapists for a host of ICD-10 codes that qualify for coverage under nutrition-related consultation and treatment to improve patient outcomes.  In-depth screening, identifying and addressing underlying contributing factors, and collaboration between team members can achieve personalized nutrition and mental health care, yielding meaningful results for patients such as described in a case study of mine, BHN Case Study 2016-6, that was published last fall in the Behavioral Health Nutrition newsletter. (The Behavioral Health Nutrition is a dietetic practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.)  When patients question various specific eating lifestyles such as Paleo/Ancestral, Ketogenic, Vegan, or following the basic Dietary Guidelines, I most often recommend the SHAPE anti-inflammatory meal plan because I have found it to be the most effective for addressing various medical conditions that have underlying dietary components.

Beyond that, as a general rule, the first piece of advice I give is to stop referring to any recommendations as a “diet.”  The further away practitioners can get from the “diet mindset,” the more peace patients will have with themselves.  Weight is just a number.  Any sustainable health improvements must be rooted in lifestyle change.  Encourage patients to practice mindful eating, such as the program laid out by SHAPE.  Also, ensure that patients get enough to drink.  Free fluid is needed in a ratio of 30mL/kg, which works out to be about half of body weight times ounces up to 100 ounces.  For example, a 150-pound person needs 75-ounces of water a day to meet his/her free fluid requirement. The most beneficial fluid for the body is pure, filtered water.  Green teas are known to help regulate blood glucose.  Teas can be flavorful, beneficial/medicinal (such as Fenugreek for lactation, chamomile or lavender for sleep, and a blend with senna, fennel, coriander, and ginger for constipation), and they can be enhanced with Stevia as well.  Speaking of sleep, I remind patients to get enough rapid eye movement (REM) sleep (7 hours) to allow their bodies time for healing and repair (such as resetting insulin receptor sites and blood pressure).  If sleep, mood, or digestion is a problem, check for vitamin B or D deficiencies, as outlined in the NFPA that might identify a methylation problem or a food and drug interaction, such as those caused by the use of serotonin reuptake inhibitors and proton pump inhibitors.

I specialized in nutrition because I believed in the healing power of foods.  In biochemistry, we learned a “calories in, calories out” concept—when one eats too much and exercises too little, he/she will become obese, and if one does the opposite, he/she will lose weight.  In my opinion, this concept is essentially untrue.   After many years of practice and continued education and research, I RARELY calculate macronutrient/calorie needs for a patient. Instead, I review his/her biochemistry, health status, personal goals, and consider the impact of medications to personalize a plan that sets him/her on a path to optimal health.   Even though it is just a guide and can be misleading, such as in body builders, I sometimes check BMI against the standard norms to help establish goal weight.  For SHAPE patients, we usually suggest they strive to be within 10% of the norm to prevent co-morbidities associated with excessive weight. Many healthcare professionals agree that going more plant based is the wave of the future, especially for cardiac patients.  Plant consumption increases fiber and provides good quality nutrients in their preferred states.  You may recall that fiber, along with enough fluid, helps regulate the GI tract.  As a general rule, the majority of food (about 70%) should come from plants, such as fruits and vegetables—the more colorful the better.  The Shape program fits well into these guidelines and also stipulates good quality protein.  As a practitioner, I recommend protein be divided throughout the day, included at every meal, throughout a 10-hour “eating window” for optimal metabolism and blood glucose control.

Don’t be blind-sided.  Traditional labs may not reveal a complete picture.   For example, a patient with an MTHFR allele polymorphism may have high serum levels of folate and B12 due to a genetic inability to convert them to their active, methylated form.  As a part of the medical team, the distinctive knowledge base of the clinical dietitian makes him/her the qualified individual responsible for informing the physician of an individual’s unique nutrient needs.  Likewise, health professionals trained to offer nutrition-focused physical exams prevent nutrient-specific problems from being overlooked and left unidentified and untreated.  Most registered dietitians hold a master’s degree, and all dietitians have at least four years of specific training.  All registered dietitians, except those with doctoral degrees in nutrition, must complete an approved internship program upon graduation and pass national boards in five areas of practice.  Thus, dietitians and other healthcare professionals are critical components to medical teams and offer unique perspectives to improve patient outcomes.

A Case Study Of Chronic Arthritic Pain By Dr. Anthony Mills http://shapereclaimed.com/a-case-study-of-chronic-arthritic-pain-by-dr-anthony-mills/ Tue, 03 Jul 2018 19:53:04 +0000 http://shapereclaimed.com/?p=9528 38 year old, caucasian female presents with years of chronic low back pain from arthritis.

Beginning Weight: 287

History:

2 back surgeries resulting in the fusion of the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebra.

Patient required at least 2 ablations a year for extreme pain that was 8-10 on a scale of 10.

Patient developed insomnia due to the intense pain and her anxiety increased.

Medications:

Celebrex, Ambien

Patient began SHAPE ReClaimed FasTrac 5/2016 and moved to Phase II in 6/2017.

Results:

Weight: 161 (loss of 126lbs in 1 year)

The patient was able to stop taking Celebrex for pain and the Ambien for insomnia after just one month on the program. She was also able to cancel all future appointments for ablations and has not had to have one since. Her pain levels have dropped to 0-1/10 with a 90% decrease in anxiety. The patient states that she sleeps better and has so much more energy and continues to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Conclusion:

The anti-inflammatory properties of the SHAPE ReClaimed program and drops appear to be extremely effective for chronic low back pain due to arthritis.

Dr. Todd’s teaching assessment:

Please note that this patient was able to stop Celebrex and Ambien after one month on the program, way before 126 pounds was shed. One should ask, was she consuming a food that triggered an inflammatory cascade or was it SHAPE that reduced the inflammation? I’ll bet the patient doesn’t care and is thrilled either way! 

Every single day, we read these types of comments on Facebook: OFFICIAL SHAPE ReClaimed Support Group. These “SHAPE WARRIORS” refer to this kind of amazing benefit from doing SHAPE, NSV (Non scale victory). Most choosing to do SHAPE are doing so because of weight challenges. Reaping the rewards with insomnia, pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, headaches, brain fog and on and on and on.

I never, ever expected all the amazing health improvements when I was creating SHAPE! Amazing. Thrilling. Humbling.

Great job Dr. Mills!

Victory Story
By Dr. Pam Wear’s
SHAPE WARRIOR

 

I had not been a previous patient of either Dr. Wear or Dr. Pam.  I became a patient of Dr. Pam’s after a success story from my sister who lives in another state and is working with another SHAPE ReClaimed practitioner.

I have been hampered with several health challenges which have limited my ability to enjoy life.  I have severe fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome.  I had also had a double mastectomy and reconstruction 5 years earlier with a cancer diagnosis.  My husband also has cancer.

SHAPE ReClaimed VS Weight Watchers
By Joan Hogan, RN

 

My client Ms M, a 65 year old woman with a thyroid condition, Graves Disease, with surgical intervention in 1970 and again in 1977; and then an intervention with radiation, “silver bullet†in 2009. 

She has been taking thyroid medication on a daily basis since then.  She has a history of Scoliosis. She also reported a history of asthma for which she would use an inhaler every day.  Additionally, she had difficulty sleeping. 

She was a member of weight watchers for 7 months. During the time she was following the WW program, she lost a total of 14 pounds.  (Ms M had a keen interest in nutrition and maintaining a weight in which she did not experience extreme back pain) 

It’s official. We’ve been working with our legal team for months and now offer a licensing agreement and certification mark for restaurants and chefs who want to offer SHAPE menu items to your patients.

Our goal is to launch restaurants in every community
who has a SHAPE practitioner.

As you all know, one of SHAPE’s greatest challenge is social isolation when folks start our program. Dining out is difficult. Your patients want to be dedicated to eating anti-inflammatory and stay on plan but joining friends and family is tempting. Being social equals sharing in a meal together. We want folks to enjoy their life and with that comes a healthy social life. It is our hope that we can enroll restaurants all across the country. We want SHAPE to be the voice for anti-inflammatory education and helping restaurants understand what it means to offer anti-inflammatory menu items.

In many of today’s upscale restaurants, you can request a gluten-free or vegan menu. What if restaurants all across the country were displaying our certification mark and offering SHAPE meals. We’re dreaming big!

If you have a hometown restaurant you can open the door of possibility for us to partner, please contact Ashley at ashley@shapereclaimed.com.

Exciting times are up ahead!

Starting in July, we will no longer email the newsletter to individual emails. The monthly newsletters will be posted under Archived Newsletters on our website. We will continue sending a monthly email alerting you that our latest newsletter is waiting for your review. 

WE COUNT ON YOU TO STAY INFORMED and always on top of our living, breathing, ever-changing program updates.

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUM, SUM SUMMERTIME…
TO TAKE OR NOT TO TAKE???

That’s the #1 question we are receiving. Practitioners and patients alike are weighing the consequences and trying to decide. What’s best?  We are convinced it is best to continue taking SHAPE, regardless of how clean the dietary choices. Every SHAPE clinic is facing the same dilemma. Patients are telling us they simply cannot, nor choose not, to be as dedicated to a strict dietary protocol during the summer. Kids are home from school, vacations are priority and many want to “let their hair down.†Most understand when they abandon the boundaries of FasTrac, weight loss comes to a stand still and if they totally abandon what they learned when doing SHAPE, will begin to gain some of the weight they worked so hard to shed. While this is a choice they are willing to accept, they are not happy when the inflammatory symptoms: fatigue, emotional, digestive and sleep challenges,headaches, aches & pains, etc. sneak back into their daily life.

Case Study
By Dr. Brian Ferguson

41 year old female presents with frequent joint pain, lack of energy, fatigue, excess weight, abdominal cramping, bloating and an overall malaise. Patient has been a chiropractic patient at our clinic for two years during which time I brought up the benefits of the SHAPE ReClaimed programs with her and encouraged her to do the program. She was hesitant for several months to try the program as she felt guilty spending money on herself. In February 2018 she began the SHAPE FasTrac Phase I program.

Practitioners and patients alike are weighing the consequences and trying to decide. What’s best?  We are convinced it is best to continue taking SHAPE, regardless of how clean the dietary choices. Every SHAPE clinic is facing the same dilemma. Patients are telling us they simply cannot, nor choose not, to be as dedicated to a strict dietary protocol during the summer.

While this is a choice they are willing to accept, they are not happy when the inflammatory symptoms: fatigue, emotional, digestive and sleep challenges,headaches, aches & pains, etc. sneak back into their daily life.

Early in SHAPE’s life, the choice was either follow the program as intended or don’t take SHAPE. We’ve learned a ton from SHAPE’s living, breathing, ever-changing protocol and understand the value of this unique formula. Dr. Todd formulated the product with the intention of it being a “total health support” product. Yes, eating an anti-inflammatory diet
is best, but we never, ever want to be so rigid that there is not room for flexibility.

After experimenting with many patients, we realize and have had many, many report back to us, taking SHAPE, (even when the patient isn’t eating as clean), keeps their blood sugar, blood pressure, lipids controlled, as well as, the long list of inflammatory symptoms folks struggled with.

Certainly, we give the patient the choice, but from our clinical observation, patients maintain their health best if they continue taking SHAPE even when they are not following a rigid protocol. Just as we recommend for those who choose to continue taking SHAPE (after they have ReClaimed their health) as a part of their support supplement program, we would recommend they back down to taking one to two doses daily. (Three doses is for Phase I) Start with one dose daily. Many do great on this recommendation but if their inflammatory symptoms are creeping back, increase to two doses daily. If the patient is taking just one dose daily, the bottle will last close to three months.

Make sure you require a maintenance office visit when the patient needs to purchase a new bottle. This helps keep your finger on the pulse of your patients health profile. If the patient is stopping in to buy a bottle of drops every month, they are taking too many drops. We recommend you keep tabs on their purchase history. Unfortunately, many of our practitioners have reported patients buying drops and passing them on to friends and family. Remember, the liability falls back to your clinic for any product you sell. We ask that every practitioner be mindful and put tight boundaries into place.

Victory Story By Dr. Pam Wear’s SHAPE WARRIOR http://shapereclaimed.com/victory-story-by-dr-pam-wears-shape-warrior/ Mon, 11 Jun 2018 17:00:14 +0000 http://shapereclaimed.com/?p=9500 I had not been a previous patient of either Dr. Wear or Dr. Pam.  I became a patient of Dr. Pam’s after a success story from my sister who lives in another state and is working with another SHAPE ReClaimed practitioner.

I have been hampered with several health challenges which have limited my ability to enjoy life.  I have severe fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome.  I had also had a double mastectomy and reconstruction 5 years earlier with a cancer diagnosis.  My husband also has cancer.

I have also been dealing with depression which Dr. Pam believes has made my pain levels worse.

I have been going to medical doctors and they continue to put me on more medications including trazadone, escitalopram, aripiprazole, clonazepam, acebutolol, and two different medications for my thyroid.

My sister and mother both have fibromyalgia and CFS, and she shared that her pain had been subsiding and was feeling better overall after starting the SHAPE ReClaimed program.  I wanted to only lose about 10 to 15 pounds, so weight was not as big an issue as my health conditions.

When initially starting, I lost 6 pounds and a lot of bloat.  I felt like I was detoxifying.  I have been on the protocol for a few months and am proud to say that I have lost 17.5 pounds.  More importantly than that, I feel much better with less muscle pain.  I have not returned to my medical doctor as of yet, I have an appointment with her the end of July.  I am hoping to be able to cut back on my medications, as I feel like I do not need all of them just to ‘get me through the day’!  We also will be doing some blood work and am interested in seeing where my inflammation level is.

I have also been able to get outside and do some walking, whereas before, I would have been in too much pain both during and certainly afterwards.

Dr. Pam has been supportive and kind, but is very much a realist and let me know from the beginning that I had to be responsible for what I was putting in my mouth.

Overall, I am thankful and grateful to the makers of SHAPE, I feel like I am starting a new phase of my life.
