I am Dr. Allison Haughton-Green, a mother of twins in my 40's. As this year moves forward, I would like to share my story with you in the hopes that this will be your year, as 2008 was mine: a mixture of good health and successful weight loss. My Story From 1999 to 2007, I suffered from a variety of chronic disorders which included crippling migraine headaches, insomnia, and anxiety. It was while having my annual physical that it finally hit home: my health (or lack of good health) was taking a serious toll on my body. I was showing the beginnings of illnesses that were potentially life threatening if I didn't take action. My lab tests showed signs of Type II Diabetes and my cholesterol was at 270. I was 40 pounds overweight, taking multiple medications daily and under the care of three physicians. The final straw was a migraine that incapacitated me for 5 days, feeling as though I was literally on fire. I was of limited use to my family and my practice. I had to make a change and fast. The Search Begins I began investigating weight loss programs and the science behind them, only to find that they are extremely costly and are often geared toward pre-packaged products that did not fit into my family's lifestyle. More importantly, most of the programs focused on eating just to lose weight. None of the programs focused on making lifestyle changes necessary to avoid repeating past dietary mishaps. Insulin is a key factor to weight loss. Recent studies conclusively find that men, women, and children that have "belly fat" are targeted for an earlier death than those without this tendency. This even includes individuals that are not overweight! "Belly Fat" is dangerous due to the fact that it poses a serious risk of disease to the organs it envelops and it is also a clear indicator of high insulin levels. My approach to weight control is an easy, realistic and nutritive way of dining that decreases inflammation in the body by targeting insulin, which results in significant and consistent weight loss. Outcomes Today, I am 37 pounds lighter, having gone from a size 12 to a size 2. I am off all medications, diabetes is no longer a threat, I am sleeping well and my last migraine was several years ago. I practice what I preach. I have been blessed with this program in more ways than one. Losing 37 pounds in two and a half months cured me of diabetes and high cholesterol. Alas, I cannot put a price tag on my health. We are all living longer, but people are plagued by chronic diseases and decrease quality of life and overall satisfaction. I wish for you what I desire for myself … to live a long, healthy life FREE from all disease. I am determined to be of service and assistance in helping people to Eat Right, Cure Disease, Feel Great … It's just that Simple! Warm Regards,Allison L. Haughton-Green, M.D., FAAP
