I have seen a lot of my family members become ill and go the traditional route of medicine – which often times led to them getting worse, not better. So, I started reading about preventative health, as I personally wanted to treat myself before I got sick. This became increasingly important to me the more that I read and researched. A shift in focus became – I wanted to incorporate into my life organic eating, nutritional supplements (to help remove the toxins we are exposed to), and a mind/body awareness. Basically, optimal health. I personally was battling severe TMJ and had spent thousands of dollars on traditional dental doctors to fix this issue, to no avail. All treatments were like putting a Band-Aid on the issue, not fixing the cause. In addition to TMJ, I had low energy and increased mood swings. This led me to come to Holistic Wellness Alternatives for help. Every year I suffer from horrible sinus infections…I would take the traditional route and follow a course of antibiotics. But the past three years I noticed that the antibiotics were not working, and I felt that I was sick for much longer than in the past. Basically, I felt that I was getting sicker and sicker and not getting better.
So, when I started to reboot my life and start more preventative health measures (as well as alternative ones) – that is when I started to see what was working with almost immediate results. Almost immediately I noticed a major improvement in energy levels. Overall, I just feel better. My TMJ issues and mood swings have disappeared, and I feel like I am handling stress better. I work a demanding job and every December (my busiest time of the year) I get sick with every cold you can imagine. In November, I went to Holistic Wellness to help make my immune system strong so I could get through the holidays without getting sick. I met with Dan and he provided information on some beneficial immune-boosting supplements which I added to my regimen and for the first time in 10 years I did not get sick during the month of December! Overall, this has impacted my life tremendously. I feel better and I know that the practices that Holistic Wellness Alternatives has suggested for me are going to help my body fight off health issues that we all face: cancer, heart disease etc. … By making small manageable changes I am now at a better place both physically and mentally.
