Like many people I have battled the scale most of my life. I could easily blame genetics when truthfully, lack of discipline and weight management are largely the culprit. Sharing my personal journey isn’t easy, but I’m hoping it will make a difference in at least one person’s life. I first started seeing Dr. Tereo in 2007 specifically for alignments. After a short time, I realized Dr. Tereo offers the services and tools that could propel me to better overall wellness.
Without any sense of judgment, I had my questions answered. I started an exercise program that was entirely different from what I'd been doing: more weightlifting, less cardio. I remember telling him "Okay, I'm going to trust you. I'm going to do it your way."
I was directed to this very website to learn different exercises including structure and form that are easy-to-follow and can be customize. I started losing body fat and became less concerned with the number on the scale. Another crazy thought? Not at all. Find the answers to BMI, Body Mass Index, on this site. And hang on, I eat more throughout the day.
Like I mentioned, I’m just like you. After a few years of staying consistent with the program, I allowed life’s demands to get in the way of my progress. I regained the weight I’d lost and then some. Here’s what I have to offer in hopes of reaching that person/those people that struggle. I’ve chosen a lifestyle change rather than a short-term diet. I’m back at the gym and rediscovered how much I enjoy that time. Find what you enjoy, weight-lifting isn’t for everyone – you might enjoy hiking, yoga, Pilate, swimming or cycling.
I was borderline diabetic, occasionally I would feel my heart race while I was in a sedate state. If my parents’ longevity is any indication on the length of my life, then I needed to make changes. I lost a considerable amount of weight but reached a plateau. That’s when I noticed the brochure for the 21-Day Purification and Weight Management program. For me, it’s been life-changing. The purification program is a smart detox. It’s not about juicing or only drinking broth for a week.
The 21-day program includes a Standard Process supplement kit, to support eating food that provides the nutrients you need while eliminating all processed foods, sugar, dairy, and allergens such as nuts, seeds, soy, and grains. I’m here to tell you the program was eye-opening. When we eat the right foods and supplements, our bodies don’t crave. Without trying the program, it may sound restrictive; it’s not. I was rarely hungry, and food became what it’s supposed to be: fuel for my body.
At the end of the program Dr. Tereo re-evaluated my heart, weight, and measurements. My goal was to discover my food sensitivities and weight loss was a happy side-effect. I lost 3% body fat, and 13 lbs; my BMI dropped to just shy of a healthy range. While I write this, I’ve completed the program a second time, and again dropped additional body fat, another 13 lbs. and am within a healthy BMI range. Results will vary from person to person, but provided you follow the program, you’re guaranteed improvement.
In addition to the exercise program, I've worked with Dr. Tereo on staying aligned and ensuring that I'm taking the right supplements. I'm entering the next phase of my life, in the best physical condition of my life. It’s hard to put into words how good it feels to feel good!
Allow Dr. Tereo to evaluate you. You'll find that with the right program, you'll have more energy to do the things you truly enjoy.
