|Patient was suffering from arthritis, hypertension, anxiety, and frequent bouts of edema. Patient had a general lack of energy.|
|Patient had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. She was facing multiple medicines including insulin for diabetes unless she changed her lifestyle.|
|The patient was taking Lexapro, Lasix, Potassium, Lisinopril, Hydrochlorothiazide, and Meloxicam.|
|Medical Testing Results|
|The patient’s lab work showed a hemoglobin glyclated of greater than 9.0 and showed both her cholesterol and triglycerides well outside normal ranges.|
|Length of time on SHAPE ReClaimed|
|The patient started SHAPE ReClaimed March of 2018 and finished August of 2018 for a total of 5 months on the program.|
|The patient only required the standard dosing of SHAPE drops.|
|The patient weight dropped from 231.8 to 185.8 for a total of 46 pounds lost. The patient lost 49 inches off her body, including 7.5 off her abdomen, 7 off her waist, and 7.5 off her ribs. Additionally, the patients blood labs showed major improvements including a reduction of her hemoglobin glyclated to 5.9, cholesterol 143, triglycerides 129, HDL to 26, and LDL to 91. The patient’s physician removed the patient from all prescription medication including medication for anxiety. The patient’s energy returned with abundance and was able to return to activities like walking and playing with grandchildren. Her arthritis no longer plagued her.|
|The SHAPE ReClaimed lifestyle changed this patient’s life forever. She was ordered by per family doctor to stop taking five prescription medication and never started on numerous others to control her diabetes. She has become energized again for life. The patient is no longer nearly crippled by arthritis. On a side note, the patient’s family physician was very skeptical of this program prior to her complication of the program.|
Dr. Todd’s Teaching Assessment:
I met Pete a few times, most recently when we did a WARRIOR event in West Plains, MO this past spring. I’ve never been a fan of before and after pictures with all the fad diets, but seeing Pete’s before and afters were amazing. Pete is a walking billboard of what SHAPE can do when one embraces its lifestyle tenants.
Personally, my success with Type II diabetes was 100% through SHAPE when I was actively practicing. There were patients that didn’t do SHAPE properly and failed but those that did the program as it is designed, and were honored all their follow-up monitoring, had 100% success! Prescriptions were all reduced and most eliminate! Type II diabetes is NOT a disease that needs to be “managed.” It’s a lifestyle issue and can be corrected with proper lifestyle changes.
Just look at this patients benefits of embracing SHAPE: 5 prescriptions eliminated, edema gone, blood pressure controlled, pain reduced dramatically, energy galore and a new outlook on life. Was it worth the hard work? This patient sure thinks so.
Typically we consider shedding 1/2 inch per pound of weight shed. This patient dropped a whopping 49 inches to 46 pounds. That’s spectacular!
This patient’s MD was skeptical of our program, yet, saw the amazing results. Sadly, I’ve heard way to many stories where the prescribing physician continued condemning SHAPE even after seeing its amazing results. What do I typically say in this situation? “You can’t fix stupid!”
