Raymond Janssen Testimony

Raymond Janssen Testimony

My name is ray Janssen, I heard about Next on the radio. And I followed up to the radio ad because I was seeing my general practitioner and he was threatening to put me on insulin. I was on an Invocamet program and heading for insulin and wasn’t real happy with what was going on there. And I heard about the program so I came down and went to the presentation and I was quite impressed.

So I signed up and it has been a great program. Before the program, I was not feeling bad, but when I first got diagnosed with Type 2, my A1C was up around 13, but I was really what I would call “pounding sugar”. I was eating a lot of sugar and a lot of breads and things like that. So I started doing diabetic kinds of things and it got down to 7.7, which is where it was when I started the program. Within just a couple months, it was down into the 6 range, which was really impressive to me.

The program is really awesome, if you are considering it, I would say, DO IT! And don’t cheat. Do it! Just follow through with it, do everything that they tell you to do and the results are amazing. Just amazing. I’ve lost weight, my blood pressure numbers have gone down, my blood sugar numbers went down.

I’ve been in the program now for six months and everything has gotten better. From starting the program, until now, everything has gotten better. All of my numbers in my blood panel across the board are almost completely normal. So it’s been a huge, huge change. The staff has been amazing. They are all friendly, they are all very knowledgeable and everyone is very informative. I find it to be a great program, and like I said, do what they say! Don’t cheat, do what they say because they know best, really. If I can say this, this has been the biggest change for me, once I took the sugar out of my diet for 45 days, if I ate anything with a little bit of sugar in it, either on accident or maybe just for a small test, it was amazing how quickly I could tell what things had sugar in them. You begin to notice things immediately when things are not really good for you. And that was the most amazing change to me, was that I could feel immediately when I was eating really healthy food and not healthy food.

My significant other is the biggest skeptic in the world, and the doctor talk, she was amazed and impressed. So it was a big relief for me because when she agreed to be my support person, we both eat much better, we cook much better, we eat a lot more meals at home than we ever did. The whole program has been awesome; I just can’t say it enough. It has just been great. Overall, if you just do what you are told and suggested, it is amazing how much better you will feel. And when they say that you will get 10 to 15 more years of more quality life, I truly believe that now. Because I just feel better, I feel so much better. I feel healthier. And it’s proven in my blood work. It’s just awesome.

Hi my name is Nicki Brunelle, and I found this program from listening to KFI radio.

And what got me to the seminar to begin with was, one of the people on KFI, who talked about his dad having to have injections in his eyes. It scared me to death. So I thought, okay, now is the time. I had listened to the ads and not done anything but I thought, I’ve got to get to a seminar.

And I can’t tell you how glad I am that I did! I got to the seminar, and signed up immediately and was accepted into the program. And between then and now, my numbers are falling daily. Blood sugar levels are holding steady at right around 90, which is great, morning and night. A1c same thing, I was up over 6 and it’s now into the 5s. And this is only after a couple of months on the program, I’m fairly new to the program.

So I tell my friends all the time, my energy level has probably tripled. Two of the biggest things I thought could never be addressed were my cholesterol, I’ve been taking Crestor for probably 30 years and was told by every doctor that I had to continue to take it, that it was a family thing, that I could never get my cholesterol down just with diet or anything else.

I’m now off of Crestor, I’m happy to say. And I’m looking forward to getting off of high blood pressure medicine, so I’m monitoring my heart right now and it seems very good. They’re also treating me for thyroid which is all, I know, involved with the same disease and so this is working all the way around. I just can’t tell you, the staff here is phenomenal. I’ve never experienced anything like this. I, like many people, go to doctors, and they poo-poo you around, or they tell you just go home and lose some weight, or just tell you don’t eat sugar or these kinds of things. Absolutely not helpful.

I’m very sensitive to how my body feels and I would tell them, no its this, no its that. And they would look at me like, oh well this is just somebody complaining. And of you go and try to give you medicines I didn’t want to take. So I can’t tell you enough about this experience. I’ve told all my friends, I’ve told everybody that knows anybody that’s diabetic that has the desire and the will to do this program, that it works. It’s easy, I think, I mean, I haven’t had any problems at all.

Everybody is extremely helpful, you have everyone at your call if you need something you can just call and ask what’s going on, and they’re more than happy to help. So I can’t say enough good about it, and again, I’m only a little more than two months into the program and I’ve seen these great strides already and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be at the six month time!

Hi my name is McKenna and I just finished up and Next Advanced Medicine. I started this about six months ago, I had a thyroid disorder and we just got the results back today and I have no problems! It has been quite a journey and I am really glad I did it. I feel really good and I am excited to be healthy again. Everyone has been super nice and I have had no problems or anything related to staff. My doctor here really cared about me and my health, which was cool. I felt like it was like her mission to make me feel better. Before the program, I was super tired all the time, I would wake up in the morning and feel like I just could not get out of bed. Now I wake up and feel super energetic and fine, but before the program by mid day I just could not get out of bed. I just felt super tired all the time, but now I feel completely normal!

Hi my name is Kellie Long, and I’m here at Next and I started on September 1 st .

I have to tell you all, you’re going to be skeptical probably in the beginning, as I was. I was pretty much at the end of my rope as far as my A1C, it was over 8. I believe it was like, 8.6, my sugar was at 250. And I’ve been battling this for eight years and pretty much ignored most of it.

Until, a lot of symptoms started changing my life and my lifestyle. So I began with Next on the first of September. My husband heard about this program on KFI and he was really drawn to it and asked if I wanted to go to a free seminar so, skeptically, I told him yes. And they day came, and he said, ‘well, are we going to go?’ and I said well, I don’t know. And he said, ‘well, I really think that we should.” So I said okay, so we went. I was moved and motivated. Was I convinced? No. But as I said, I was at the end of my rope and my time of trying to find something to make me feel better.

I was tired all of the time, neuropathy in my feet, and stinging. I run my own business and you have to be motivated and energetic in order to have a successful business. So I went ahead and signed up, came in.

My first month was tough, but it was rewarding. There were nights when I felt like crying, and my husband kept telling me, ‘just hang in there, Kellie, it is getting better.”

My first blood test went from 250 on my sugar to 185. And today, I’m celebrating because it has gone down to 139! And my A1C is 6.1, maybe a little off but it is basically around the 6’s. I feel like celebrating tonight. I think I’m going to have me some vegetables or protein. But this is something worthy. And I believe that if you are skeptical, you feel like not drinking the koolaid, as I told my husband. I said, I’m going to try it.

I believe that you should definitely believe in the staff here. They’re friendly, they’re helpful, and they’ve been motivating and supportive to me and my needs. And have customized my program. And have brought out a lot of information, I now read labels more than I ever have in my life. And you, too, can learn how to have a better lifestyle. And to add icing on the cake we do not eat, I have lost about 20 pounds.

So, that is even better. I am feeling better, my feet are better, more feeling at the bottom of my feet, and I have an overall positive attitude. So I hope today, you will join. And it is good to network. I have had people ask me for my number, just meeting them in the hall. You can tell by the office that it is a good buzz and everybody is excited and motivated and wants to share their story. Feel free to talk to each other and support one another.

Hi my name is Jim Keys, I was considered diabetic when I started at 6.5 on my a1c, I am now 5.1.

I heard about the program on KFI, I was a bit skeptical but I thought, what have I got to lose? So I went to the dinner and met the doctor and she went over the program there. And the next day I met with her again and I signed up. It was the best thing I ever did. I had no idea that I was in need of this program, because I felt fine. I never felt like I had diabetes. However, my blood sugar was 416, and now I am at 95 to 100. I just can’t say enough about how good my clinician has been helping me with my diet, my exercise, and the supplements I’ve been taking. The staff has been incredible, very welcoming and always there when I needed them. I really didn’t have any symptoms before I started, but once we realized how serious this disease really is, it is truly a silent killer. Where you can feel good one day and the next day you wake up and you’re losing your eyesight or losing a leg.

I recommend this program to anybody, it’s well worth it and I’d do it again if I had to.

A Sad Story with a Happy Ending.

Once upon a time there was this married couple who thought they could do whatever they wanted, eat whatever they pleased, and still live long and vibrant lives (they obviously lived in a bubble) because their health care provider kept them well supplied with drugs.

They would hear a radio commercial on talk radio Los Angeles bragging about how the elderly father healed his Type II diabetes.  While mildly interested, they found themselves distracted by other of life’s temptations, so ignored the warning flags.

Both were Type II diabetics.  But her, by simply popping more and more pills and injecting insulin, no problems, right?  The list of pills and quantity of insulin got bigger and bigger, and so did they….

That was when she finally got the stink eye from her Kaiser doctor.  Her kidneys were in stage 3 failure. The cause?  The diabetes AND the related medications.  She knew if she continued down this path, in short time it would cost her dearly.  Nobody wants kidney dialysis the remainder of their life !!!!

So this time, she listened closer to the commercial.

The adventure started by attending a dinner seminar (hey, it’s on their dime) and listening to their program and philosophies and success stories.   Quite enlightening.  Being lifetime, well read “dieters”, they recognized many truths to their claims.   These were people in far worse shape whose results were undeniably impressive.

They signed up and checked their pride, gluttony and denial at the door.

……………………………………………………………………………………….

The first office visit we were introduced to our respective practitioners. This is team approach using both traditional medicine and alternative (homeopathic) approaches .  My new practitioner, Dr Bosler, very easy to talk to and ask questions, prescribed the nutritional supplements while my primary physician at Kaiser adjusted my medicines as we progressed.

Mind you, my Kaiser professionals frowned on these alternative methods.  At the same time, they are now in disbelief yet praise me over the results.

Back to NEXT.

First on the agenda…baselines.  There were a gamut of blood, urine, saliva, and stool tests done to see exactly what we were dealing with and how to proceed, mine being seriously wacked up kidneys, hormonal imbalances, cortisol problems, intestinal yeast issues, glucose intolerance, and of course weight, and lastly, hidden food sensitivities (not allergies, causing the inflammation that leads to all these conditions).

Then we were given a very restrictive 2 page list of foods we could and could not eat.  We were asked to stop taking our own vitamin supplements and only take their nutritional formulas.  I found myself lugging a bag full of supplements and two canisters of a powdered drink mix that would start me on the first 4-weeks, a detox program, and wondering HOW THE HECK I was going to prepare these foods and stay sane.

Thankfully, the powdered drink was tasty (chocolate !) and was loaded with nutrients and fiber.  You are advised to eat 6x a day, meals of organic proteins, vegetables and a small amount of fruit, and no counting calories or measuring.  Just eat until full.  Doing this, I dropped 7 lbs the first week.

Another team member, dietician Theresa, was at our disposal at all times, even by phone or email.  The first thing she did was take us on a 1+ hour trip to the grocery to introduce us to a new way of shopping and what we need to look for on food labels.  Then, told us to empty our cupboards at home.  Sigh.

First day…shocking for me who has been on a moderately high dose of nighttime insulin for at least 4-5 years, I needed to stop all insulin immediately.  I kid you not, one day on *their* meal plan of no starchy carbs or sugar, and the insulin was no longer a necessity.  I have not needed one drop since.

Other than the substantive up front costs for this service, the other cost to us is a 45 min drive each way for our appointments over the 6 months.  But even that is negotiable, as they advocate using Skype as an alternative.  Of course, during this period you are building new habits and hopefully entertaining the fear of God that you will not insult your body by becoming diabetic ever again.

6 months later…THE RESULTS ARE IN.  Kidneys functioning normally, blood pressure normal, cholesterol levels normal, all my other test results are normal or nearly normal, and the collateral weight loss brings tears to my eyes.  My previous medicines?  Some are completely eliminated, a few linger but in far lower doses.

We continue on this new path, even went on a long vacation, after we finished the program, without skipping a beat.  Imagine going on vacation and the weight continues to drop.  I am ecstatic over my new energy levels, physical abilities, and the huge bags of clothes I have donated to Goodwill.

Was it worth it?  Absolutely.
