Success Stories

Weight Loss Goals Reached & Hormonal Health Achieved

Finally I have reached my weight loss goal of 30 pounds! I made the decision to do the twelve week program you offered and I am so glad I did. For a very long time I have been confused about how I should eat. There is so much conflicting information out there. You showed me exactly what I needed to do to overcome my sluggish metabolism and burn fat. I loved how you gave me meal plans that worked just right for the time I had available for meal prep, which is very little! You also taught me what was causing my dry skin and hormone imbalance and how to correct it. Thank you for coming through with a workout program that was short and sweet so I have been able to stick to it!  I feel like a new woman. I will definitely be telling my friends about your programs.

Chronic Pain Managed

For two and a half years I have suffered from a neck injury and two surgeries with continuing pain.  When I came to you, a pain specialist had just told me he could not help me outside of destroying part of the nerve that was being affected.  I happened to see your brochure and wondered if you could help me.  You really impressed me with your knowledge and your caring attitude.  As a nurse myself, I look for factual data that supports using a supplement or not, and I was amazed at how much data you have stored up in you!   After 2 weeks I was noticing a decrease in pain, and after 3 weeks I was greatly improved.  And to think I was considering letting my nerves be destroyed because I was so desperate to get rid of the pain!  This was so-o much easier.  You have made a believer out of me.   I also appreciate how you have continued to care about my continuing recovery with adjustments and recommendations along the way!  Thanks so much for your help.

Blood Pressure Lowered Without Medication

Dear Karen,

When I first came to you my blood pressure averages were 138/86 in the mornings and 135/84 at night.  Five weeks later my blood pressure averages are 114/72 in the mornings and 115/71 at night.  To have the systolic pressure drop 20 plus points and the diastolic pressure drop 13-14 points in 5 weeks is amazing ... and without any medication.  I detest the thought of me taking prescription drugs when my food can be my medicine more effectively.  During this same 5-week time period I have lost 8 pounds.

Also, I appreciate your listening ear and keen ability to get right to the heart of the matter.  I have tried to think of words to use to express my appreciation, but I have been unable to improve on those two often-used words "THANK YOU".

As I have grown healthier each day, I can truly say that I am most fortunate to have your good care and counsel.

Health Restored After Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Illness

(After a home remodeling project) I became very ill, and I was diagnosed with multiple chemical sensitivities. Because of Karen Bishop's excellent nutritional advice and her knowledge of MCS, I am able to resume my normal daily activities and my health has been restored. Thanks, Karen, for all your dedicated work!
