My name is Tim with the Clinton Township fire department. I’ve been a patient of Dr. George’s for six or seven months now. I originally listened to Dr. George at the Health and Safety Seminar in Lansing for our group—now he’s probably seen the majority of that group as patients. I originally heard a testimonial from a gentlemen from Hazel Park; I knew him and had seen him around at some these conventions. He’d seen a dramatic change; he seemed very level-headed as a fireman, not someone you’d see on a TV program. He was someone you could relate to and trust to tell you the up-and-up on what was going on. I pursued it and didn’t talk about it too much initially, trying it for myself. I’m a seeing-is-believing type of person. Everyone has some area they want to change…for me, it was my body. I was going on vacation with my wife at end of November and I wanted to look better on the beach and feel better about myself. I think it goes a long way when you start to feel better about yourself. You are able to do a lot of things for other people around you. If you are down on yourself, the last thing you want to do is go out and help someone else out. I listened to Dr. George describe a lot of the things I was experiencing and the benefits: better energy, mood, and
sex drive, feeling better about the way you look. In my case, I was probably the second heaviest I’ve ever been, even though I was a ways from my heaviest, in the mid-190s. I’m not comfortable at that weight. My comfort range is the low to mid-170s. Cholesterol was a huge factor for me. For the first time in fifteen to twenty years, I was able to get it under 200.
