I feel like a whole new me. – A.R.

A year ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia. With these diagnoses, it makes it extremely hard to exercise, and I was put on extremely strong drugs and high doses of them. I was weighing in at around 210 lbs. when I first came to Dr. Dolan. 

She discussed with me an anti-inflammatory nutritional program. She called it SHAPE ReClaimed. Since my diseases are due to inflammation, I figured I would try anything.  

I have lost about 20-25 pounds and 36 inches off of my body. My rheumatologist has cut my medicines in half, and I have more energy now than I have in years. I feel like a whole new me. I can walk long distances, and I am outside all the time now instead of sitting on the couch or lying in bed. I have completely cut out sugar and now use stevia for a substitute and switched from regular milk to almond milk (it really tastes good). I have found a healthier way to live.  

I owe everything to Dr. Dolan. I couldn’t be where I am today without her. She helps you if you need it to get over the humps and believe me I had one or two. I called her, and she returned my call right away. I appreciate everything she has done for me. 

My ESR (Erythrocytes Sedimentation Rate) dropped from 75 to 25 after doing the SHAPE Program. ESR is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in 1 hour. An easier way to understand this test: it is a non-specific test for inflammation. 

Thank you all very much.
