Why MOOD ReClaimed?
Br Dr. Todd Frisch
For years, I tried to support emotional issues with nutritional supplementation. I went after emotional problems physiologically. Without a doubt, I am supportive of the world of psychology, unfortunately, they only have counseling and/or prescription medication as their â€œgo toâ€™s.â€ What role does hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, nutritional deficiencies (or excesses for that matter) play into emotional imbalances? What about PMS, menopause or andropause? Is toxicity an issue?
Truly, one is left with, anything can cause anything!
Iâ€™ve seen SHAPE change patientâ€™s personalities, lift them out of depression, calm anxiety and even despair has improved dramatically. I initially thought it was simply from the thrill of shedding toxic weight (as we all know, that is the priority for most.) As I began using SHAPE on patients who were not struggling with weight issues, but rather extremely inflamed and immune-suppressed, I still witnessed dramatic shifts emotionally.
However, there were always those patients that continued to have emotional problems, even after â€œattackingâ€ them in a myriad of ways. Always the detective, finding the missing puzzle piece was my driving force and passion to help my patients ReClaim vibrant health.
MOOD ReClaimed is my attempt at formulating a support remedy that can help your patient who is struggling beyond what SHAPE alone can do to help with higher emotional imbalances.
The WHAT & WHY:
Dr. Paula Dolan SHAPE WARRIOR
At 280 lbs, I was at the point where I needed to turn to a professional and seek help. I was constantly tired and in pain. My knees, my back and neck were constantly bothering me. I sought help from medical doctors who prescribed me anti-inflammatory and physical therapy which really did not resolve any of my issues. My mood was awful, and I did not have any interest in anything or anyone because I was so uncomfortable with the way I looked and would get tired so easily.
After only a few months being under the care of Dr. Dolan, I never felt better and lost 40 lbs! My energy was back. I slept so much better. All my pains were gone â€“ literally, all! I was able to get down on the floor to play with my kids and that meant so much to me.

Is your HEC in check?
By Dr. Janet Yarger
Is your HEC in check? I recently started asking my SHAPE patients this question. HEC, which stands for Hunger, Energy and Cravings, is a great monitoring question that I got from Dr. Jade Teta, ND. I have found that this is a wonderful way to help patients in learning how to adjust their eating based on their HEC. I explain to my patients that if their HEC is not in check, then they are not burning fat. It is not about the number on the scale, but how they look and feel. I tell them that we do not want them to be skinny fat, but to lose toxic fat. So, if their HEC is not in check, the first thing that I have them do is increase their vegetable consumption for one week. If that did not get their HEC in check, then the next step is increase their protein. Finally, if modifying their vegetables or protein did not get their HEC in check, then I have them increase the amount of fat in their diet. I also ask them to monitor their quality and amount of sleep and assess their MOOD while on SHAPE, as sleep and MOOD are also important factors in shedding toxic fat. Ultimately, it is important for each patient to monitor their own eating, as SHAPE is not a one size fits all program. The key to success is find out what works for them. Patients are encouraged to take responsibility for their own success, and I am here to guide them and help them along their journey.
