The Having Health
Why is this program so radically different from any other form of alternative healthcare?
Having Health Now is ideally suited to treat the following conditions:
Having Health Now is designed to:
The patient meets privately with Kevin on a weekly basis over 10 weeks. The first treatment is usually around 2 hours and consists of a thorough intake, review of the patient's goals, review of the orientation manual, and the acupuncture treatment. A 3 page health contract is also convered that formalizes the patient's commitment to nutrition, exercise, meditation, and yoga. There is also a part of the contract that explains the missed appointment policy and different options if the patient must quit the program prematurely. The following 8 treatment are 1.5 hours. One-half of this time is for acupuncture treatment, the other half is for meditation and yoga practice, along with checking in about the previous week and answering questions. The last treatment is a mini-retreat that lasts about 2.5 hours. During this time, we review the patient's goals and all of the disciplines learned in the program, answer any final questions, and discuss where to go from there.
The following two case studies are real patients (with made up names) from my practice who completed Having Health Now.
Case Study: John
John, a 53 year old male, came to my office with several health concerns. He was concerned that his relationship with alcohol wasn't serving him or his family. He was about 30 lbs. overweight, had slightly high blood pressure and blood sugar, restless sleep, low energy, moderate depression, and a feeling of excessive heat. John was also concerned that he used food as an emotional crutch. He had a tendency to binge eat and he often craved sugar.
Over the course of 10 weeks, John dedicated himself to weekly acupuncture and practiced the yoga and meditation with great enthusiasm. He also began exercising at work and radically changed his eating habits. I prescribed a nutritional supplement for John called Crave Arrest that is an excellent natural remedy for a variety of addictions including alcohol and sugar. I also prescribed Bojenmi slimming tea, a Chinese herbal concoction that helps with weight loss and another Chinese herbal formula called celestial emperor's teapills that helps with depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, fatigue, and a feeling of excessive heat.
By the end of 10 weeks, John looked and felt like a different person. He lost 23 lbs, was sleeping well, had significanlty more energy, normal blood pressure and blood sugar, and no sugar cravings. He had cut down the alcohol consumption to almost none. While John made great strides during the course of these 10 weeks, I consider his progress to be a wonderful means of prevention as well. Some of his symptoms are early indicators of heart disease (high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, excessive weight) , the number one killer in the United States. By committing to Having Health Now, John likely spared himself serious heart troubles a few years down the road.
Case Study: Susan
Susan, a 49 year old female, began Having Health Now with the following health concerns: severe hot flashes, poor sleep, anxiety, high stress, diabetes (blood sugars of 170 even with medication), and an excess of 25 lbs. Because of her anxiety, she found the meditation to be quite challenging, but she persevered. Susan drastically changed her diet, eliminating refined carbohydrates and sugars and eating a more balanced, organic diet. I prescribed a Chinese herbal formula called Jade Nourishing decoction that is excellent for lowering blood sugar and neutralizing diabetes. I also prescribed Bojenmi slimming tea to help her lose weight. Susan worked out regularly at the gym and she did the yoga that she learned in the program several times a week.
At the end of the 10 weeks, Susan had lost 15 lbs., which was very noticeable given her shorter stature. Her blood sugar was down to 120. Her hot flashes were gone and she was sleeping normally. She felt much more equipped to deal with the stress in her life and her anxiety was way down. Susan looks and feels like a new person and is very excited about her newfound health.
I consider Susan's progress to be of vital importance for her long-term health. Diabetes is a serious condition that can cause a host of health problems. Since her sugars were out of control due to poor dietary choices, she was at risk for heart and circulatory problems in the near future. Our goal is to get her sugars down to 105 with continued nutritional guidance and exercise. I may also used other herbal products in combination with the Jade Nourishing decoction.
