Watch the brief video clip and read her story below.

 

"When I was recently diagnosed with a chronic illness, I was shocked and upset.  I had no idea it would turn out to be a blessing in disguise. 

Let me explain.

I’ve always been a pretty healthy person, but I just never really felt great.   Even though I’ve always maintained a balanced diet and consistent fitness routine, by the time I was in my early 30s I developed insomnia and struggled with increasing aches and pains. 

Being an avid yogi and former recreational runner, I just assumed I was as healthy as I could be in my forties and accepted it as the learned hopelessness of the aging process.

Then I met Dr. Brent Agin, and my wellness journey began!

As a wellness physician, Dr. Agin intuitively understood that there was likely an underlying issue causing my symptoms.  While my plea to Dr. Agin initially focused on solving my insomnia, he suggested lab work.  The results revealed I was suffering from high inflammation and elevated rheumatoid arthritis (RA) levels. 

I couldn’t believe it! 

I was so discouraged, but Dr. Agin remained positive.  With conviction and enthusiasm, he advised that I was fortunate to know my diagnosis, and convinced me that I could overcome it with the right plan—which he formulated and I followed.

Fast forward 4 months, and my life has changed for the better!  I lost 20 pounds, have reduced the inflammation, increased my muscle tone and now I have more restful sleep! 

I feel great! 

Now I’ve transitioned from seeing Dr. Agin at the Metabolix Wellness Center, his clinic in southwest Florida, to managing my prescribed therapies through the convenient TelewellnessMD online platform.  Since I live in Oklahoma, this is a much more convenient option for me.  In addition to a gluten-free, low carb diet, I’ve adopted an all-natural supplementation and nutrient program that combines Trim Nutrition oral supplements and injectable nutrient protocols.

I work as the vice president of a healthcare corporation, and have access and inside connections to a fairly large network of highly qualified providers.   I wouldn’t say I feel like the system failed me; there just aren’t any comparable services available in traditional healthcare.

Dr. Agin and the highly credentialed providers at TelewellnessMD have offered me a wellness based alternative that puts me in charge of my health.  It has enhanced my quality of life and reversed the progression of my illness.

As a person committed to a healthy lifestyle himself, Dr. Agin’s approach to optimal wellness comes from a place of understanding cause and effect relationships within the body.  For example, he advised that gluten often increases inflammation and could potentially exacerbate my RA symptoms.  He understands that people who deal with chronic illness need to maintain a healthy fitness level, instead of relying on prescription medications. The program he recommended was uniquely formulated just for me.  It addressed my insomnia and RA and has enabled me to achieve optimal health. 

The best part is, I’m able to manage everything online and in coordination with my primary care physician.

The results speak for themselves.  Believe it or not, it’s actually really easy!  I don’t feel deprived, starved or dissatisfied. I’m on a program that is sustainable; I look better and even though my disease will probably always be with me, my current labs show it’s likely in remission. I’m living proof that people with illness can live a healthy, happy and natural life.

Everyone can improve their wellbeing.  My advice is to consider an alternative to your status quo.  Choose a healthier you and start your wellness journey today!"- Cheena P., TeleWellnessMD Client
