Thank you all for a wonderful service." April 2014

" I am a retired Army veteran with 20 years of military service. I travelled extensively was exposed to scores of tick and other insect bites across the globe.

I met Dr. Levin in late 2008. In early 2009, I had become too incapacitated to work. At that time, I was not a patient of Dr. Levin. He mentioned that my symptoms were consistent with tickborne illness, and suggested that I be tested, due to my exposure history in the military. I tested positive for Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb)/Lyme Disease (LD). I was one of the unlucky majority that showed recurrent and changing IgM reactivity without the shift to IgG. I was sick, and he knew why, but I did not qualify for the disease label from the CDC because my immune system was impaired. (I believe that it was because of my immune system impairment that I remained ill.)

IGeneX IgM/IgG testing and Borreliose Centrum LLT testing showed positivity for active Bb. I could get no help from the VA or the IDSA infectious disease medical providers. I improved greatly during antibiotic treatment, but regressed upon removal.

Dr. Levin remained supportive and continued to help me when no others would. Eventually, we proved the chronic Bb infection--via positive PCR and positive blood culture. I became an official CDC-recognized case of Lyme Disease.

Thanks to the combination of IV and oral antibiotics, my Borreliose Centrum Lyme LLT now shows no activity. My LD is either dormant, or gone. Thank you Dr. Levin.

However, I still was having recurring symptoms--pupils going uneven, episodic nausea & vomiting, trouble walking and talking. These flairs occurred for several days monthly. Dr. Levin knew to look further.

The other infections that Dr. Levin identified in me were: Borrlia hermsii, Chlamydia pneumonia, and most recently, Babesia duncani. The Borrelia hermsii has been cycling between active and inactive for three years. The recurrence of organisms and symptoms lead Dr. Levin to check my immune system. My immune deficiency was verified by a credible immunologist who appreciated Dr. Levin's diligence.

Borrelia hermsii and Babesia duncani are considered to be emerging infectious diseases. Both were featured in research articles in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013. Despite my having laboratory documented infections, IDSA infectious disease doctors from a major research university declined my request for an appointment!

God bless you Dr. Levin, for not giving up on me. You were right about the illness. We proved it. You are now helping me combat the Babesia. If it was not for you, I would have received no care.

God bless you Dr. Levin. You are my hero." 2/10/14

Yes, billing is not perfect but the treatment is more important. " 6/24/13

This was the only place that finally figured out what was wrong with me for most of my 30's (Lyme Disease). I had been to so many doctors and they all said it was in my head. Dr. Rind figured out I had Lyme and my whole life has changed since then. T.D. 5/23/13

"This program gave me a new (food) life, and better health. I'm proud of myself with respect to food for the first time in a very long time. Thanks to Anita Capizzi, my pants are too big for me now! I lost an inch on the waist and hips, eating incredibly delicious food.

 

Before enrolling in the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I had dessert most nights of the week. I was a corn-bread connoisseur. My doctor was alarmed at my high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, along with blood sugar levels. I felt like the world was coming down on me, and that my age was catching up with me. I felt depressed and resentful that I would need to make a change.

 

After completing the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I feel like I have control. I don't feel resentful about what's required to be healthier it in the least. I eat incredibly delicious food, and yes, sometimes I'd rather not take the time to prepare it. But I do, nine times out of ten - nobody's perfect. Now my clothes are too big, and my doctor is delighted with my blood tests. I didn't think I could do it, I thought it would be too big of a life change, but Anita showed me how and made it fun. I am her biggest fan" L.H.  6/7/13

"Dr. McClure is very professional, personable, knowledgeable and is a true professional. Dr. McClure's supporting staff John was very helpful and pleasant. They all work well as a team and care about patient comfort and well-being.

"My name is Dr. Mark Chalfant- I am a Chiropractor and Clinical Nutritionist, but more importantly my 4 year old son Karson had 1 isolated tooth significantly decayed. I have several close friends who are dentists and surgeons and after going to 3 of them (all making a valiant attempt) we did not know what to else to do. My business partner referred us to Dr. Mark McClure and to make a long story short - Dr. Mark is nothing short of amazing along with his right hand man and staff!! I am utterly grateful for the care we received. The 'bedside manner', addressing and respecting my son as an individual, gaining his trust and agreement and the team work that we observed still leaves me in awe - I can only aspire to care for my own patients to the degree that we were cared for at NIHA." 6/3/13
