A Path Medical Testimonial:
I went to see Dr. Braverman for the first time, just over a year. I had spent the last decade trying to find someone to help with my metabolism problem. I knew something was something to help me with my metabolism. I knew something was wrong because no matter how much exercise I did, how little I ate, or what diet/ eating plan I followed, the result was the same: Little to no weight loss, or a small amount of weight loss initially, only to be followed by, regaining the weight and more while still following the meal plan.
It seemed that no doctor could help me. Frustrated, I sought the help of “specialist.” I was told by multiple doctors “ You must eating hidden carbs,” “You need to eat less and exercise more.” One doctor told me “Eat 50 calories a day, because any more is apparently too much. ” Valuable time, money and energy was being expended to be told that I was the problem and that I was doing something which caused me to gain weight and not be able to lose weight. Every time I went to a new, I hoped and prayed that he/ she would find the answer, the missing piece of the puzzle. I tried everything and traveled to doctors and clinics around the United States. I knew that something had to be wrong with my metabolism. I was never hungry and I had spent years exercising for hours everyday, I was always sick to my stomach, and my immune system was not functioning well. It just didn’t add up, I was expending more calories than I was consuming and I still could not lose any weight. Many doctors tried to help me. They were able to figure out pieces of the puzzle, but would eventually explain: “ I have tried everything that I can do for you. I don’t know how to help you.” It was a complex problem and most doctors were only able to treat one piece of the puzzle at a time. The problem was, without the whole system functioning correctly, that one piece they were fixing did not make a difference. On top of that, there was still the question of what is causing this inability to lose weight and unexplained weight gain? Dr. Braverman answered my question. After a full head to toe examination (literally) that included sonograms, scans, and other tests, Dr. Braverman determined that my metabolism had shut down. He explained that I could exercise all day and eat nothing and I would not lose weight because my metabolism shut down. I will never forget these words or the tears they brought to my eyes. My prayers had finally been answered. For the first time, a doctor provided me with a reason that didn’t involve me doing something wrong. It was not a matter of eating less and exercising more, or eating no carbs, etc… it was a matter of correcting deficits in my body.
Dr. Braverman told me that I would 90 pounds in a year. I met that goal and surpassed it with a weight loss of about 100 pounds in 1 year. Dr. Braverman continually addressed and issues as they came up. He made adjustments to supplements as necessary. He responded quickly to problems that arose. He stood by me every step off the way to insure that I would successful. I followed his recommendations of the rainbow diet, which includes eating all colors of the rainbow at every meal, drinking green tea and various herbal teas (rainbow of colors) everyday, and using spices at every meal. (Tumeric, cinnamon, cilantro, paprika, oregano, basil, thyme, garlic, parsley, rosemary, etc…) I eat healthy meals everyday and never feel hungry, or deprived. Before Dr. Braverman, I was unable to eat much, because anything I ate resulted in weight gain. Over the past year, I was able to eat full meals, and lose weight. I never thought that would possible, BUT IT WAS, AND STILL IS.
Dr. Braverman is a brilliant doctor, knowledgeable, intelligent, doctor who thinks “outside the box.” He finds the things NO OTHER doctor can find! I wish I had found him sooner. Without his determination, superior medical knowledge, guidance and support of his staff, I would not be where I am today. I love the new ME!
