Last year at the beginning of November, Betty Higgins embarked on a unique journey with Baker Chiropractic and Wellness to lose weight and gain her health. At 55 years of age, Betty had struggled with her weight for decades. That battle was taking a toll on her overall physical and mental health. She suffered from a long list of health conditions from fibromyalgia to depression to high cholesterol and was taking thirteen (13) different prescription medications to treat the symptoms of her various ailments. The list included such common medications as:
Betty had tried all types of diets in the past including the ones that are highly advertised on television by celebrity spokespeople. However, those diets failed her and left her frustrated. She needed something different. She found the difference when she stopped into the Red Bank Clinic of Baker Chiropractic one day and talked to Dr. Paul.
“I felt a strong leading from the Lord just to stop in (the clinic) without an appointment”, stated Betty. “They took me right into this bustling office, just liked I belonged there. The rest is history”, she added.
Betty had a strong desire to change her health and her life, but she had not found the right program with the right support. Unlike the highly publicized diet plans, Dr. Paul’s and Dr. Patrick’s LifeCall Weight Loss and Health Gain program is not focused solely on weight loss. In fact, loss of weight is simply a derivative of their unique program. A LifeCall is about making changes to your lifestyle in order to gain health and lose the elements in your life that are preventing you from having good health.
When Betty started her LifeCall program last year, this is what she said about why she was doing it:
“I would like to be able to take better care of my grandchildren. I haven’t mentioned it to my daughter, but the reason I won’t take both grandchildren outside to play together my myself is that I’m afraid a four year old and a two year old will outrun me and I couldn’t keep them safe. I’m ashamed to say that, but it’s true. I came to Cincinnati from a failed marriage which in part was caused by my obesity. I would like to regain my health and my life.”
In November of last year, Betty sat down with Dr. Paul Baker and Dr. Patrick Baker to discuss her LifeCall program. They provided her with detailed plan to escape her unhealthy habits and develop a new and healthier way of life. The doctors showed Betty how to eat, taught her the importance of proper nutrition, provided her with guidance on exercise and set a schedule of regular chiropractic care with Dr. Paul.
Betty’s first steps in her LifeCall program began by throwing out all the processed foods in her refrigerator and pantry that were providing her with little or no nutrition. Then, she went on a special shopping tour at a local supermarket where she was showed what food to buy and what to look for on the labels. The doctors also gave her a detailed exercise plan to follow along with regular chiropractic care.
The Results After One Year of the LifeCall Weight Loss and Health Gain Program
For the last twelve months, Betty has been following the LifeCall program, attending routine chiropractic care with Dr. Paul and enjoying the support and motivation of the Baker Chiropractic and Wellness staff. Her investment in herself is paying huge dividends. Here’s what Betty has accomplished:
• Lost 70 lbs. of weight.
• Reduced dependency on prescription medications from 13 to 3.
• Self esteem restored.
• Confidence increased.
• Positive outlook on the future.
“If someone would have told me I would be 70lbs. lighter in one year, I would not have believed them”, said an overjoyed Betty Higgins. “I had tried to lose weight and keep it off for 30 years and had lost hope until Dr. Paul’s and Dr. Patrick’s LifeCall program”, she exclaimed.
Betty is an inspiration to anyone who is facing weight and health conditions. Her determination and hard work are providing her with a new outlook on her life. She is a perfect example of how strong faith and support from others are essential to conquer adversity and promote positive changes.
