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!

Think about it: different colors mean different nutrients. No single food can give you all the nutrients you need to thrive. That's where variety comes in, and a big part of that variety is the colors on your plate.
⠀
When you reach for a variety of colorful foods, you're not just adding flair to your meals, you're also loading up on essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that keep your body humming along happily.
⠀
🍆🍇🍠🫐 Today, let's highlight those purple and blue-hued fruits! 
⠀
🧐They owe their vibrant color to compounds called #anthocyanins, which are antioxidants. These antioxidant powerhouses swoop in to prevent and repair cellular damage, protecting your brain, your heart, and even help dial down inflammation.
⠀
But wait, there's more!
⠀
🧠Research suggests that chowing down on purple foods might even give your brain a boost, helping you think more clearly and calmly. That's all thanks to polyphenols, another group of antioxidants found in these colorful gems.
⠀
And don't forget about vitamin A and flavonoids – they're hanging out in those purple veggies too, giving you even more nutritional bang for your buck.
⠀
📣SHOPPING TIP: the darker the fruit or veggie, the more antioxidants it tends to pack. So, when you're browsing the produce aisle, go for those deep, rich hues to get the most nutritional bang for your buck.
⠀
So, there you have it – the lowdown on why you should embrace the rainbow on your plate. Not only does it make for Instagram-worthy meals, but it also sets you up for a healthier, happier you.

🧠Dopamine is a neurotransmitter intricately involved in various cognitive functions within the brain. 
⠀
🥰 Naturally released from nerve cells, dopamine contributes to the sensation of pleasure and reward following enjoyable experiences. This neurological mechanism underscores its pivotal role in the development of habitual behaviors - both good and bad! 😈 
⠀
Here are six practical strategies to naturally enhance dopamine levels:
1️⃣ Non-sleep Deep Rest (NSDR): Dedicate a brief 10-minute interval to guided meditation for daytime fatigue reduction and enhanced cognitive focus.
2️⃣ Morning Light Exposure: Commence your day with 10-20 minutes of exposure to natural morning light, fostering a dopamine-boosting effect akin to a revitalizing tonic.
3️⃣ Cold Morning Shower: Embrace a 3-5 minute cold shower regimen, stimulating dopamine release and invigorating your senses for the day ahead.
4️⃣ Diminished Evening Illumination: Opt for subdued lighting during nighttime hours to facilitate a tranquil ambiance conducive to dopamine regulation and restorative sleep.
5️⃣ Prioritized Sleep: Recognize the indispensable role of quality sleep in dopamine modulation. Prioritize sufficient sleep duration to uphold optimal neurotransmitter equilibrium.
6️⃣ Comprehensive Self-Care Practices: Engage in stress-alleviating activities such as massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, or nature immersion to bolster dopamine regulation and overall well-being.
⠀
In addition to lifestyle interventions, certain supplements may offer support in promoting healthy dopamine levels.
These include:
✔️Tyrosine
✔️L-Dopa
✔️EGCG
⠀
However, it's imperative to exercise caution with supplements as everyone’s chemistry is different. What’s supportive for some may be compromising for others. Consult with your BeWell clinician before incorporating supplements into your regimen.
⠀
Balancing dopamine levels can yield profound benefits for cognitive function and emotional well-being.

🥗"Eat your greens!" — a timeless mantra echoing through generations. But what is it about these verdant wonders that make them the cornerstone of a healthy diet?
⠀
🥦Green vegetables boast a wealth of #chlorophyll, the pigment responsible for their vibrant hue. Beyond aesthetics, chlorophyll packs a punch as a potent #antioxidant, shielding our cells from the ravages of free radicals [1]. Remember, where there's oxidation, there's aging. So, by indulging in chlorophyll-rich greens, we can effectively slow down the ticking clock of cellular aging.
⠀
🌱Research also suggests that chlorophyll might even aid in weight management by curbing cravings [2]. A study conducted at the University of Lund in 2013, demonstrated overweight women who consumed 5g of chlorophyll daily experienced a notable reduction in their desire for sugary treats and chips!
⠀
🫛Furthermore, a 2018 study revealed that individuals who regularly incorporated leafy greens into their diet exhibited slower rates of cognitive decline [3]. In fact, their cognitive function resembled that of individuals a decade younger! Talk about a fountain of youth!
⠀
🫑Beyond their nutritional density, many green vegetables are fiber-rich, vitamin-packed, low-calorie, and low-carb. They serve as the perfect ingredient to boost satiety and nutrition without adding excess calories.
⠀
🚨IMPORTANT NOTE🚨
It's essential to note that while greens offer a plethora of benefits, they may not be suitable for everyone. 
⠀
Individuals sensitive to sulfur or prone to #hyperoxaluria should exercise caution. Schedule a session with our licensed nutrition practitioners to determine the best dietary choices for your unique needs!
