MEET OUR PATIENTS - WEIGHT LOSS
I came to Dr. Ortiz on a referral from a good friend who is also a Naturopathic Doctor in another area. This friend saw how I was suffering. I had just completed 6 months with a local orthopedic group trying to figure out what my issue was. Don’t get me wrong, they were wonderful people. But at the conclusion, they offered me surgery without any other counseling. I wasn’t ready to go there. I knew my health was becoming scary, but I did not know who to go to until this referral to Dr. Ortiz. She zeroed in on my issues with no hesitation, and with in depth blood testing, she could see what I needed and encouraged me to begin with the HCG Diet. I was hesitant. I am a ”sensitive” type, and had a lot of inflammation going on as a result of my weight gain. She expertly encouraged me to give it a try. I did. NEVER BEFORE HAVE I HAD SUCH A SUCCESSFUL AND HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS. And never before have I felt as good as I do now. I was scared of the injections. I was scared of the low calorie diet. Let me say that during the entire 30 days I was cravings-free and sometimes had to force myself to stop working in order to eat. If you know me, this is a miracle. The injections are super easy, no pain. The low calorie diet is satisfying, and I think the shakes are key. Having my blood sugar levels evened out was another key. There was not a more unlikely candidate than me due to my fear and basic addiction to food. I lost about 24 pounds in 30 days. I have continued to lose (I have a ways to go) and feel fantastic. My wonderful husband and I are eating clean and healthy! Let me also say that whatever small dilemma I came up with Dr. Ortiz was able to solve in a natural and healthful way. She is a caring, loving professional with strong knowledge and she is a strong but gentle guiding force. God Bless Dr. Ortiz, she saved me life. I know this to be true.
