Hello my name is Frances. I have been coming here to Dr. Caruthers’ office for treatment for a problem I have with neuropathy. My right leg was totally black and blue all the way up to my knee, and the left leg was starting to do the same. I was really afraid of what was happening to my body. I was afraid of blood clots. So I decided to come and investigate what this series is about, and I began treatment. I have been on the treatment for about 2 1/2 months now. And believe it or not my legs are no longer black and blue, the blood is flowing and the numbness is subsiding, the touching of my legs was very painful even for me to touch them and now I have progressed so I can give them a rub down and it feels very good. I notice when I walk I used to have to stop after only 1 block and rest for 15 min and now I can walk for 3 blocks before I have to stop. That is my story and I love what is happening to me.

I am very happy with the program. I have lost over 35 lbs since I have been on the nutritional program in just over a month. The recipes are really tasty and good. It is a different way of eating. I feel energized. I am off all of my diabetic meds now. My A1c is down to 5.5 from a high of 7.0 without taking insulin! I am extremely happy with the program overall.

From the second week, I stopped taking all my medications. I didn’t need them. The first week my blood sugars were 76, 79. That was a little too low for me. So this diet obviously is working. It has been about 2 ½ months and I have shrunk in my midriff a good 2 inches where the belly fat was located, and I am continuing to go down. I am very pleased. I did not think you could reverse type 2 diabetes at all. I thought it was something that always got worse and eventually you end up on insulin. I was a dialysis social worker and I saw results of diabetes that is out of control. People having to have their blood cleaned 3 hours 3 times a week sometimes 4 hours, amputations, it scared me. So with hypertension and diabetes it was time to do something. This was kind of the end run on a long journey. That’s it, it works. Don’t wait!

I first encountered Dr. Caruthers at a dinner event. I was told by my doctors that I needed dialysis and I needed to act fast. His program offered an alternative that I felt could reverse my kidney damage and diabetes. Since starting I have lost about 35 lbs, reduced my insulin greatly, not completely yet, but am confident that will occur. Most important is that I am no longer a candidate for dialysis! My advice to anyone considering the program is, do it! Change your life!! I feel great and the program is working phenomenally.

Hi I am Tori. I have been coming to Dr Caruthers since June of 2011. I wanted to be strong and able to go back to Africa with Soles for Souls and help give shoes to children. I could not do that on my first trip because I could not bend over, and now I feel I can bend down and put shoes on a child’s foot, which is one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. I really enjoyed my treatment here. They make me feel good and I walk out much straighter than when I walked in. Good Going Dr Caruthers 🙂

I came to TLC Functional Wellness 4 months ago after living with my sciatica pain for over 6 years. I thought it would just go away…but it only got worse and my sciatica hurt so bad I had to physically lift my leg to get into the car. The pain went from my buttocks down the outside of my leg to my calf and my feet were numb. Not only did it hurt but I was afraid that I would twist my ankle and fall because it felt like my feet were asleep. I could barely walk without crying and it was impossible to get comfortable to sleep.
I saw the ad, and when it described the symptoms it was like it talking to me. I called and was set up with an appointment the next day. After meeting with Dr. Caruthers, I started on my treatment plan. The office personnel set me up with a schedule that fit into my schedule since I work. After my 2nd treatment, I noticed I wasn’t dragging my leg as much and every treatment I had less pain. The numbness had started to go away and I was getting some strength back in my legs.
Now that I have completed my treatment I am pain free. I get up in our (very tall) 4 wheel drive jeep all by myself and can go on walks and hikes with my husband. Every aspect of my life has improved since even the simplest of things caused me so much pain. I want to thank the entire office for being so nice and concerned with how I was doing and for encouraging me throughout the entire process. I followed the instructions that were given to me and got the results that Dr. Caruthers promised.

When I am asked about the program I have been on for the last 4 months, I stop and wonder just what value it has been for me. I have noticed and have been told by my parishioners that I have improved dramatically. My lifestyle has completely changed due to the diet plan recommended by Dr. Caruthers…for the better! I am no longer dependent on medication. I am no longer on any diabetes medications including insulin!! My A1c went from 7.1 to 5.7. I have lost weight and feel fantastic. I feel great and will continue on the diet plan to continue to feel much, much better!
