Our son, Ashby Cockrell, Jr. died unexpectedly in January of 2016 which has changed our lives forever. I was completely devastated and fell into a deep depression. For the next year, I sat in my chair everyday thinking about my son and asking why did this happen. I wanted to take his place. I was already very overweight and in poor health with uncontrolled diabetes (even with insulin 5 times/day), a heart condition, and high blood pressure - on 5 BP meds. My cardiologist kept telling me I needed to lose 50 pounds if I wanted to live much longer and then my nephrologist told me my GFR was 37 and very close to dialysis. That is what scared me into seeking help from Healing Alternatives and the Ideal Protein Program. I was at 307 pounds.
"My health has done a 180 degree turnaround. My doctors have taken me off of my short term insulin and all 4 of my blood pressure medications (my BP now is 107/78). My heart has greatly improved and I have a longer life expectancy. My GFR is now 50 and my kidneys are near normal – what an amazing change this program has afforded me and my family. The coaching by Maureen and Lisa along with my weekly visits has been fantastic. They have supported me throughout this entire process both physically and emotionally."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The fact that is was as easy as it turned out to be. Don't get me wrong-it takes some discipline but I was never hungry. I learned so much about what I was doing wrong.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
It's difficult to list them all. I have enjoyed looking so much better, feeling so much better, sleeping well throughout the night, buying some new clothes and most of all the energy and revitalize life I now have both for myself and for my wife. I have a totally new and bright outlook on life and am so proud of all the progress I have made with Healing Alternatives and my health specifically.
