Symptoms : IBS/Digestive Issues,Weight Loss,Allergies,Chronic Health ConditionsI heard about NW Vitality Center through a friend who had visited and had great results and a great experience. I was a bit skeptical at first as it was something completely different than what I had tried but quickly became a believer.
I had lived with stomach issues for 15 years, since I was in jr high, I had visited countless doctors and specialist only to be told that I was perfectly healthy despite having so many issues on a daily basis. I was hypoglycemic, had IBS, heartburn, etc. I woke up every day with morning sickness, I got migraines regularly and always felt like I couldn't go somewhere without knowing where the nearest bathroom was going to be. Things started to get worse this last year, I would randomly get the worst stomach pains that I had ever had in my life. It seemed like each month there was a new food that appeared to cause the issue that I would have to avoid like the plague. Doctors had no answers.
After one visit to Kevin I was convinced. Hearing that my issues were completely understood and validated was such a relief and for the first time I felt like it wasn't just me. He knew exactly what I was going through and quickly found the problems and started talking solutions. We found that I had several weak organs, a long list of food sensitivities and an infection in my stomach. We cut out all the foods that caused sensitivities and the doc gave me some homeopathic drops. After a week I could see and feel a difference. After 3.5 weeks I had lost 20lbs (which I had been struggling to lose for years) and pretty much all of my symptoms were reduced. Now about 5 weeks later, I feel better than I ever have!!! I have more energy, my skin is clear, I'm still losing weight, and the best part... No more pain! No more migraines! No more fears of trying something new or eating out or worries of being in pain. It's changed my life in the best way possible and I am so grateful for the team at NW Vitality center for changing my life for the better!!

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive IssuesI have suffered from stomach issues since I was 2 years old. I had a foot of my small intestine removed and ever since food has been a battle that I chose wisely. Over the years I self diagnosed a lactose intolerance and recently with new studies a gluten intolerance. No one should feel like they ate a brick after a veggie sandwich.
In my high school and my 20's I was highly active exercising daily and eating healthy and still suffering. I went to see a gastroenterologist who didn't really diagnose me or treat me for any of my symptoms. Eat more fiber, drink more water was what I was told I needed to do and I'd be fine. Which all in all made me feel worse and now bloated. I got to the point where I would only drink water on an empty stomach, never with meals.
Finally, I decided I had enough. There had to me something I can do. I was excited to find Nutritional Response Testing through NW Vitality. The results were immediate. I followed my treatment exactly. From 33 years of suffering it took Kevin less than 6 weeks to rid me free of my symptoms. My follow ups are positive, no food or seasonal ailments. I am so happy to feel like food isn't an enemy anymore.

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive Issues,Weight Loss,Allergies,Chronic Health ConditionsI started my journey with Northwest Vitality Clinic after my wife recommended I go for a free examination. I was in search of a solution for my high blood pressure and sleeplessness due to frequent urination and muscle cramps. I also had been living with digestive issues that became so routine that I assumed gas and discomfort after meals was just ‘normal’. I have been on the traditional blood pressure meds for over a decade with no end in sight of the dependency upon these meds. I was also overweight, but that wasn't even a priority for me.
At NW Vitality I was tested for reactions to wheat and yeast, and recognizing these led to a progression of issues being identified, and then solved with the combination of the BAX treatments and the supplements Dr. Jerome recommended.
My blood pressure went down 20 points and I was able to decrease my meds! My progress to better health was so great, I completed the weight loss program as an afterthought and lost over 18 pounds during the program as well!
My improved digestive health, increased energy and longer periods of sleep have resulted in an overall lifestyle improvement that I have no doubt is sustainable. This has been the best money I have spent on ‘me’. I have recommended many others to the clinic and that is not something I would do without feeling it is a great investment. One I wish I made a lot earlier.- Jeff W.

Symptoms : Weight Loss,Chronic Health ConditionsLast summer I was in the midst of a months-long, miserable psoriasis flare-up, plus experiencing pain in many of my joints, especially my knees. Things were getting worse, week-by-week. I had been through almost every traditional drug regimen to treat psoriasis in the past, and had experienced terrible side effects. The joint pain severely limited the outdoor and fitness activities I had always enjoyed.
When I saw an online coupon for the Nutritional Response Testing at NW Vitality, my curiosity was piqued I admit that it seemed a bit “woo-woo” to me, but I was ready to check out a fresh approach to my skin and joint issues.
After my first exam with Kevin, I carefully followed the dietary limitations and took the supplements that were indicated by the exam. Immediately I noticed improvement in my digestion, energy level, and mood. As I continued treatment, the joint pain soon disappeared. Progress was slower with regard to the skin condition; psoriasis is notoriously stubborn. Kevin persisted in the quest to treat any and all possible causes, and my skin is now almost completely cleared! No other regimen to treat my psoriasis has worked so well.
Not least of the benefits of treatment, I’ve lost 30 pounds! I have some clothes shopping to do; this spring I can show off some (healthy) skin as well as my trimmer figure.
It turns out there’s nothing “woo-woo” about this. NW Vitality staff listen to you, are well trained in their fields, are caring and committed to healing. Yes, it also takes work and commitment as a patient to follow up with the dietary advice and supplements. The steady and sometimes dramatic improvements were a tremendous motivation for me to stay on track.

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive Issues,Weight Loss,Allergies,Chronic Health ConditionsI was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes 6 years ago I have been on a very high
insulin and oral medication protocol. My weight has fluctuated, I deal with
IBS, constant heartburn, low energy, irritability, and mood swings. I get
sick often and am on antibiotics at least twice yearly for different
infections. I am on several different medications for acid reflux, diabetes,
and depression. I have high cholesterol, very high triglycerides, high blood
sugar, very high inflammatory markers, and am very overweight. When I use
the bathroom I can see my undigested medications and pills in the toilet
This was my life 6 months ago. I decided enough was
enough. I saw a Living Social ad for NW vitality Clinic and pondered what I
might have to lose by learning a little more about what they offer.
met Dr. Jerome, and he asked me about what brought me to the clinic. I told
him about all of my issues, the most recent being not digesting my medicine,
and he told me exactly what was going on in my body and why it was
happening. All of the medications I was taking were to treat the side
effects of the medical problems I was having. He explained what different
foods do to my body, and was able to assess and tell me which foods I had
sensitivities to. He told me countless things that were wrong, why they were
wrong and how we could fix them together.
I took the challenge and I
am now a different person. Through diet, education, and hard work I have
changed the unhealthy person I was. I am off ALL diabetic medications. I do
not have to take insulin anymore. I am off all heartburn medications, and
have almost halved my depression medications. I have lost over 30 lbs. My
skin is clear, I have so much energy, and the list goes on. My cholesterol
is down as well as my inflammatory markers, and I am no longer considered
diabetic as my sugars are in normal range. I have run three 5k’s and
returned to playing tennis and running regularly. Our family is healthier,
my husband has lost 30 lbs and my daughters are eager to learn more. From
the books I have ready and what I have learned from Dr Jerome I have
discovered a dairy intolerance in my three year old and a gluten intolerance
which has relieved my 6 year old of her chronic excema. I could go on and
I am now in the middle of the rapid weight loss program and continue to
strive to make myself better and healthier every day.
Dr. Jerome has given me the knowledge, confidence and support to be able to
do whatever I want to make myself healthier. Thank you for this opportunity
to learn about what I needed to do to choose the right thing for myself.
Carrie Hartley, age 39 and getting younger every day!

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive IssuesI came into the clinic with so many chronic issues. I have suffered from airborne allergies, bowel irregularities, joint pain, insomnia and heartburn. I have been treated by Dr. Kevin for these symptoms using the BAX 3000, homeopathic drops, and daily supplements. As a result I feel better than I have in YEARS! I have lost 25 lbs, I am happier, I sleep better, and no more Tums for me. I actually feel like people treat me differently now that I have more energy and feel good about myself. I have suffered with insomnia since a child and it disappeared after the first few days of following my regimen. I also saw my General Practitioner recently and found out my blood pressure has dropped 25% in 3 months due to my new way of life! I now get to enjoy life and my passion to garden again. I would highly recommend NW Vitality to anyone who wants positive change in their life! If I can do it you can too!

Symptoms : Weight LossBefore I started at NW Vitality I had horrible pollen allergies, and I was always sick with something. I’d been having these problems for about two years. Also, I had put on about 25 pounds, and I couldn’t get it off with any diet plan, even when I was doing 10 hours of hard cardio a week and taking diet pills! I was always sick, I always felt tired, and I hated the way I looked. After I started seeing Kevin, I noticed results in about two months. Nine months later, I am happy to say that I have a ton more energy, a great state of overall wellness, and haven’t been sick once since starting care! After a strict diet plan and supplement regimen, that stubborn weight finally came off. I’m so happy with my results! I can go through my day without feeling tired or groggy. When I look at myself in the mirror, now I feel happy and healthy, and LOVE the way I look!

Symptoms : Chronic Health ConditionsLife without Kevin would never be the same! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after 20 years of my health declining. I was gaining unwanted weight, pain all over my body and severely depressed. I could not get out of bed without pain or even put on my clothes. Life was terribly depressing. I would say my quality life was an F minus!!! I really didn’t want to live any longer.
Since I have begun treatment at NW Vitality, I have changed my entire life around! I am a new woman! My pain is very limited, my sleep is great and I am able to volunteer in areas I have always wanted to help make a difference. My Primary care doctor decreased my blood pressure meds in half and my CRP blood marker levels also were cut in half after working with NW Vitality. Kevin saved my life using NRT, BAX 3000, and nutritional supplements to get my back to optimum health. I was thankful to find him through Groupon, I never would have known about such a great program.
Believe me when I say, “There is no way I could do what I do now in life, if I never met Kevin.” He treated me wonderful and so did Amber his office Manager. Both of them are a big part of who I am today! Thanks for caring and helping.

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive IssuesI found NW Vitality through Groupon. I was having stomach issues that I knew I couldn’t live with. I had been on acid reflux meds and did not want to be on them for the rest of my life. I only shared my digestives issues at first. Kevin gave me a supplement to support my digestion and the pain was gone! It was really amazing. The pain that used to wake me up in night was completely gone and so was my acid reflux!
Now that I was feeling better in this area, I knew it was time to share all of my health issues. One by one we have tackled them to gain back my health. I sleep better than ever and can breathe through both sides of my nose. My neck is no longer as stiff and I am losing weight too! Life is much richer and fuller because of my return of my health. I believe Kevin is a healer of the state of the art!

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive IssuesI have had stomach problems for years. I’ve been to many doctors, had dozens of tests, but the results were always the same- they said there’s nothing wrong. But starting from the first visit Kevin understood my conditions; he explained exactly what was wrong. I left that first visit with some supplements, and some confidence. After the first week I was amazed that I was going through the day with no problems at all! Kevin is the first person who truly understood the problems I was having, and he has changed my life in just a few short weeks! He’s also taught me how to continue my life without pain and without the worry and stress of not knowing what was wrong. Kevin is the best practitioner I have ever seen! He gave me the tools and understanding that no other doctor ever had. I am truly grateful.
