SUCCESS STORIES

Finally Heard and Helped!

I am happy to share my experience with BeWell. I was having GI problems, insomnia, chronic UTI/ kidney issues along with a full-blown case of Menopause/ hormonal imbalances. Family Doctor and Urologist couldn’t/ didn’t help me. However, with updated labs obtained through BeWell, along with their guidance with supplements and diet, I have been able to share my results with my OBGYN and together they came up with a plan to help me get back to me! If you feel like you’re not being heard or helped, I would highly recommend BeWell and its services.

Significant Improvements

After five months working with the BeWell team, I have experienced significant improvements in my overall well-being. I came to my initial appointment with a variety of ailments including brain fog, anxiety, and fatigue. Laura was able to suggest a few supplements based on my symptoms before diving deeper into the roots of my issues to build a customized plan. I was honestly surprised at how quickly I began to feel better. Every aspect of my plan was thoroughly communicated to me in a way that I could understand and was given constant support and feedback on my progress.

Scheduling, meetings, and checkout procedure are seamless. Team members are at the height of professionalism. I Highly recommend BeWell Associates to anyone looking for a natural approach to their health.

Excellent Customer Service Sets BeWell Apart

I just wanted to let you know that [Office Manager] Lydia provides excellent customer service. She is efficient, pleasant, and helpful. I know this must be a busy time with the supplement sale going on but she was excellent. That’s one of the main things I like about your business – when you call you get to talk to a real person who knows you and cares about you.

Thanks for all you do.

Weight Loss and Great Numbers!

Thank you for helping me get on the right road and getting my body to function properly. As of now, I am down 31 pounds and feel much better. Knowing what to eat and when to eat it has made it much easier, and I am never hungry. Thanks again for helping me not become a statistic as a diabetic. It takes some work, but I think it is better than finger pricks, prescription meds, or insulin shots. I’m happy with my recent numbers and my doctor is also. My A1C is down from 6.6 to 5.7, just .1 away from “normal,” total cholesterol down from 193 to 137, triglycerides down from 123 to 65, LDL down from 124 to 79, and my risk of stroke/heart attack went from 4.39 to 3.04, considered “low.” Thanks, Monica!

From Skeptical To Believer

I was skeptical about calling BeWell because I thought that I would have to make hard changes to my diet and lifestyle. My daughter convinced me to call because she did not want me on a lot of medications. I am so glad I made that call. The changes have been easy. The BeWell Team are so knowledgeable and so helpful. I am feeling better than I have in years. I am off my reflux medicine, I am making better and healthier eating choices, I have the energy to exercise, and I walk every day. I have no inflammation, no bloating, no aches and pains. I have lost ten pounds. I don’t miss bread or dairy at all! I would recommend BeWell to anyone!

Help For Pain And Food Allergies

I have lived for many years with pain and food allergy issues. Recently I was told that I have autoimmune problems, but with no answers to my question – why? Doctors just wanted to give me prescription medicines to deal with the pain. I didn’t want to go down that road of constantly taking prescriptions that only mask the problem. I know that there has to be a reason that my body is being affected the way it is. I am glad that I have found BeWell Associates to try to help me figure out all of my food allergies and health issues. Only one blood test will check for 90 different food allergies – this amazes me! So I went for the blood test, and am now awaiting the results to come back. I’m trying to have patience as I await these results. I have already noticed a difference in my health and pain issues just by cutting out some things that they advised me to stop eating. So I’m grateful for the improvements to date and look forward to knowing more in the future. Thank you BeWell!

🍽️ Nutrition is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal for maintaining optimal male hormone balance and health!
⠀
🥗 What you eat impacts hormone production and their pathways of communication. A balanced diet can work wonders in keeping these hormones in sync.
⠀
Remember those hunger-regulating hormones, leptin and ghrelin? Well, they, along with testosterone, are influenced by the fat content in the diet.
⠀
🥑 Heart-healthy omega-3 and omega-6 f fats are found in foods like olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel. These fats aren't just good for your heart; they also influence sperm quality, motility, and acrosome reaction.
⠀
Research even shows that the #MediterraneanDiet, which is rich in these heart-healthy fats, can improve erectile dysfunction!
⠀
#Omega3 fats can also assist with stress reduction by lowering cortisol levels.
⠀
🥩 Unfortunately, The Standard American Diet (aptly abbreviated as SAD), is loaded with saturated fats from sources like beef, pork, cheese, butter, and dairy desserts like ice cream. This imbalance undermines hormone harmony, and it's linked to issues like erectile dysfunction, infertility, insulin resistance, and heart disease.
⠀
👩‍⚕️ When looking to optimize male hormone health, it’s important to get individualized guidance. Consider booking a Dietary Deep Dive session with one of our Clinical Nutritionists to kickstart your journey to better health!

💪Think testosterone is the end all be all of male hormones? Think again! The truth is, the landscape of men's health is far more intricate and multifaceted than just testosterone levels alone.
⠀
✅Insulin is released from the pancreas after eating. It transports the glucose from a meal out of the bloodstream and into the cell where it can be used for energy. Thanks to this transport function, it’s key to maintaining stable blood sugar levels and weight management.
⠀
✅Leptin and Ghrelin are two separate hormones responsible for hunger and appetite control. Leptin is the “I’m full” hormone, while ghrelin is the “I’m hungry” hormone. The proper production and signaling of these hormones is critical to control appetite and maintain weight.
⠀
✅Thyroid Hormones. Most people are familiar with thyroid’s impact on energy metabolism and thus an underactive or overactive thyroid can lead to weight and body temperature changes, fatigue, and low mood. However, it’s important to also know that thyroid can have a direct relationship with infertility and sexual dysfunction!
⠀
✅Testosterone More than just a muscle builder and libido booster, testosterone also wields a positive influence on cardiovascular health, including cholesterol levels and inflammation. Low testosterone? You might be at higher risk for cardiovascular issues and insulin resistance!
⠀
✅Cortisol is a steroid hormone that gets a bad reputation as “the stress hormone,” but is actually essential for our day-to-day functioning. It regulates blood pressure, supports the immune system, anti-inflammatory responses, and blood sugar levels. It’s important to recognize that prolonged stress can throw other hormones, like DHEA, out of balance, which in turn will lower testosterone production!
⠀
🧪Ready to take charge of your hormonal health? Talk to your BeWell clinician about functional hormone testing.
⠀
💊Remember, hormone management is highly personalized, so always consult a pro before diving into any new supplements targeting specific hormones.

🏃‍♀️At its most basic level, #metabolism is the chemical conversion of food into energy. This core process is essential for all bodily functions, such as breathing, circulation, cell repair, and movement.
⠀
The rate at which metabolism operates varies from person to person and is influenced by several key factors:
✅ Age
✅ Sex
✅ Body composition
✅ Genetics
✅ Hormone levels
✅ Activity level
⠀
🧬 Clearly, some of these factors are out of our hands. Can't turn back the clock or rewrite our DNA, right?
⠀
🧓🏼And it’s true that metabolism slows down with age. This is natural, and not something to shame ourselves over!
⠀
💪 However, many of these factors we can directly influence to optimize metabolism, such as #activitylevel, #bodycomposition, even #hormonelevels!
⠀
Talk to your BeWell clinician about your greatest opportunity for metabolism boosting lifestyle tweaks.
⠀
🧪 Organic Acid testing and hormone testing are also FANTASTIC tools to identify opportunities to better support your unique metabolism.
