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 Dr. 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. Dr. 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 Issues, Allergies, Chronic Health ConditionsI 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 Dr. Kevin to anyone who wants positive change in their life! If I can do it you can too!

Symptoms : Weight Loss, AllergiesBefore I started seeing Dr. Kevin 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 Dr. 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 to see Dr. Kevin! 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 Dr. 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 being treated by Dr. Kevin, 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 Dr. Kevin. Dr. 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 Dr.
Believe me when I say, “There is no way I could do what I do now in life, if I never met Dr. Kevin.” Dr. Kevin 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 Issues, Weight Loss, AllergiesI found Dr. Kevin 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 came into see Dr. Kevin but only shared my digestives issues at first. He 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 Dr. 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 Dr. 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! Doctor 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. Dr. Kevin is the best doctor I have ever seen! He gave me the tools and understanding that no other doctor ever had. I am truly grateful.

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive Issues, Weight LossI had suffered from IBS for many, many years, always fearful that I would get caught in a another embarrassing situation where there were no bathrooms close at hand. I experienced pain, bloating and diarrhea daily and was really miserable. I had tried medication for my IBS and it helped a bit, but it also made me gain a lot of weight. My cholesterol levels were bad, and my blood pressure was creeping up. I tried to lose weight, but was never successful. I first heard of Dr. Kevin online, and the first testimonial I read was from a woman who had been cured of IBS under the guidance of Dr. Kevin. At that point I didn't care about loosing weight, I just wanted my IBS to be cured. I met Dr. Kevin in February of 2012 and my life has completely changed for the better. I still can't believe all that Dr. Kevin has done for me. He is so knowledgeable, so caring, and so encouraging (and so are his staff). I AM FREE OF IBS! I also decided to follow Dr. Kevin's weight loss program. I LOST 38 LBS! My blood pressure is really healthy, I am no longer on cholesterol meds. I feel GREAT! I have gained my life back. I never thought I would be able to take long walks on the beach and not have to worry about where the nearest bathroom is. I never thought I could ever look in the mirror and like what I saw. Dr. Kevin has done wonders for my heath and my self esteem!

Symptoms : IBS/Digestive Issues, Weight LossI came to see Dr. Kevin in hopes that he could help me get to the bottom of my nagging digestive issues. After suffering for 15 years of gas, bloating, cramping, and diarrhea, I’d tried many things to help me solve this mystery. Within 2 weeks of my first appointment, my digestive issues had disappeared, and I was feeling a lot more energetic, too. And, the treatment was easy to follow because I could see and feel immediate benefits. Now, just 3 months later, my symptoms have not only stayed away, but I’ve also lost 15 lbs. and have so much more energy and stamina! Friends and family notice not only the weight loss, but also that I just look more radiant, my skin is clearer, my eyes brighter. I’m so relieved and thankful to be feeling like ME again!!

Symptoms : Weight LossI have suffered from severe body pain and fibromyalgia for 47 years. In recent years it had really intensified, especially after a really bad car accident. I saw a Naturopath, many medical doctors, and tried acupuncture, all with little success. I was spending almost the entire day, every day, laying in my recliner in constant pain. On a scale of 1-10, my pain was an 11. I could barely stand long enough to cook myself a meal. I could only stand on hard surfaces like cement for about 15 minutes, and had to buy expensive specialty shoes just to go to the grocery store. I could not move my arms away from my body, couldn’t reach up to get a coffee mug on a shelf, or look down to read or shrug my shoulders. I couldn’t hold my head up for long, so I had to take a pillow with me everywhere I went for support. I went to my Christian meetings & sat in the back where I could prop the pillow behind my back & head, but was still in a lot of pain. Sometimes I would take 1/2 a pain pill, but they made me drowsy. About every 3rd night I would take the pain medication just so I could get some sleep. Needless to say, the last day I worked was the day before my car accident- I was in such bad condition I had to give up my job, which I truly enjoyed.
I thought I had tried everything to get well, until I ran across an ad in the paper for Dr. Kevin. The ad said, in bold print ‘I will listen to you’. I thought ‘oh boy, I’ve got to see this guy,’ because doctors have never listened to me. I was completely blown away when I came in. Dr. Kevin prescribed a supplement, which he had me take right away. 15 minutes after taking it I was completely out of pain- I couldn’t believe it!!! Dr. Kevin also diagnosed me with a hidden egg allergy, and once I stopped eating them the change was remarkable. I immediately had so much more energy, and got even more after clearing up the parasites the doctor found. I then received allergy treatment on the Bax 3000, and now eat two eggs every morning with no problem! Dr. Kevin also found that my thyroid and adrenals were not working properly, and since he has treated me for that I feel like a new person! I was recently able to do outside yard work for the first time since 2005!
And to top it all off, I have struggled with my weight for 35 years, and have never been able to lose weight. I’m now on my second round of Dr. Kevin's customized nutrition plan, and so far I’ve lost 76 pounds! I’m so thankful for all that Dr. Kevin and Northwest Vitality has done for me! For the first time in years, I feel alive again.
