LL lost over 10 lbs. the first 10 days on the protocol. She was placed on Phase I for six weeks and continued to lose weight. Followed Phase I and eliminated foods that she was deemed sensitive to on testing. Abdominal bloating resolved, PMDD improved and her menses was much more manageable over time. Most importantly, her fibromyalgia pain improved tremendously, dropping her need for daily NSAIDs. Total time on the SHAPE program was four months with total weight loss of 36 lbs.
LL stopped the SHAPE protocol when kids were home for the holidays. She kept up with the elimination diet and her supplements to continue to see progress with her PMDD and menstrual issues. She was able to incorporate exercise which she had abandoned years ago due to the fibromyalgia.
Patient is ecstatic that she is able to feel age appropriate again. At initial consultation she stated she felt like she was over 90 years old with her limitations and fatigue. She does not feel like she needs to lose weight but likes to maintain every few months on the SHAPE protocol for 6 weeks to keep her fibromyalgia in check.

Dr. Todd’s Teaching Assessment
I absolutely love it when our SHAPE family of practitioners support their patients the way Dr. Omnia has done. SHAPE by itself is wonderfully effective and by using what Dr. Mark Hyman’s calls think-and-link mentality (i.e: support those peripheral entities), the SHAPE program becomes profoundly more effective. My daughter Abbie and I dive deep into this think-and-link approach in our book, WTF? Why the Face: A Practical Guide to Understanding Health & Personality through Facial Diagnosis (available through Amazon).
We teach that SHAPE ReClaimed is:
- Anti-inflammatory – additionally supported by Omega-3 and Curaphen extra strength by Dr. O.
- Immune-enhancing – additionally supported by Colostrum by Dr. O.
- Mildly detoxing – additionally supported by enzymes and B6 by Dr. O.
- Releases toxic weight – 36 pounds shed with Dr. O’s monitoring.
Never hurts to throw in an adaptogen, Ashwaganda, and a bullseye supplement, Nutrigyn.
Great job, Dr. O! I hope you all see the many benefits of SHAPE ReClaimed way beyond weight loss when you read these wonderful case studies.
