Going to Alternacare was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've lost 18 lbs so far. I'm off medications for high blood pressure and reflux and I feel better than I've felt in years!

I've been aware of the concept of alternative medicines for more than eigh years. Unfortunately, I was made aware of alternative medicine after I took a radio active iodine pill due to my diagnosis of Graves Disease (Hyperthyroid). Consequently the radiation damaged my thyroid and I was placed on the pharmaceutical drug Synthroid. A year or two pass and I begin to struggle with hypothyroid symptoms(cold hands/feet, inability to concentrate, etc), even though my blood work came back normal. Being frustrated with traditional medicine, I took it upon myself to read and research so that I could improve my health. I stumbled across a youtube video where Dr. Rob spoke on an at-home thyroid test. Alternacare's website information was in the description of the video so I visited their website and read their testimonies. To my amazement, I read testimonies where people stated that they had thyroid issues and where no longer on their medications thanks to Alternacare. After only a few months of treatment my symptoms have improved drastically. My cold/hands feet, heavy legs and other issues are virtually gone. I'm now off my thyroid meds completely and I am very thankful for Alternacare. They have a very family-oriented environment and treat you more than just a patient. I 100% recommenced Alternacare to any one who is having health issues.

My experience with Alternacare - Dr. Rob and the associates in the office - was wonderful! I have worked with them for a little over a year; four months of weight loss and balancing hormones (especially my thyroid) and then I went on maintenance. My initial health issues were hypothyroidism, inability to sleep, muscle & joint aches, and excess weight. In four months I lost 42 pounds, balanced my hormones, began sleeping through the night, and relieved muscle & joint pain! I am thrilled with my results! There are a few other issues I had never connected to hormones or weight that have now disappeared as a result of my body's healing. Everyone at Alternacare is kind, professional, and helpful. You won't find a more caring group. I will never forget the day my primary physician called to tell me, "Discontinue use of your thyroid medication." It was quite emotional for me as I realized that my body had healed and was strong again! It has been a little over a year since I began the program. I am healthy. I feel good. I wake up refreshed. I cannot recommend Alternacare enough!! Thank you, Dr. Rob and Alternacare!!

I learned about Alternacare through my Aunt inviting me to one of the cooking workshops. Within the first few minutes of the workshop I was intrigued. It is difficult to find a place that is truly interested in your well being other than yourself. Alternacare is that place. They genuinely want to not only help you feel better, but stay healthy!!! I have been going to Alternacare for only two months and have seen a improvement in my health. Over time, I had progressively it seems to feel worse and worse. Everyone at Alternacare put the "care" in Alternacare. I highly recommend anyone going to Alternacare.

Being in the medical profession myself, I must say that I had tried MANY options related to weight loss...not only was I concerned with carrying the extra weight, but more importantly I wanted to get to the ROOT of why I was extremely fatigued, had no appetite (yet continued to battle with weight) and also why I had headaches in the afternoon...after working with Dr. Rob and his staff, I learned that I was struggling with adrenal fatigue. Dr. Rob developed a personalized plan, that was very strategic for my lifestyle (as I work and travel a lot). His team was very encouraging and helpful every step of the way! Now, I sleep better, have lost 20 pounds, have energy, and continue to work towards optimum health! I still have a ways to go, but I am hopeful for the FIRST TIME in YEARS!!

I felt ill for a few years and I didn't know what to do or where to go. Alternacare has been my only solution! After just a few weeks, I began to feel healthy and rejuvinated. I know I have been healed. Thank God for Alternacare and their wonderful staff. I feel great again! :)

Several years ago a doctor mentioned that I had a goiter which is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. I had tests along with a biopsy done but it did not show up anything. I began reading many books because I wanted to know more about issues involving the thyroid in order to be more informed. I also began reading books involving the hormones. I was always tired as well as going through menopausal symptoms. I would not be able to sleep through the night since I would wake up from hot flashes and sweats. I was searching online and found the Alternacare website along with many others. I read through most of the websites but the one for Alternacare stood out to me. The main thing that caught my eye was the workshop that emphasized eating for your body type. I filled out the online form and was contacted by Pam. She is very friendly and just a lovely person. I went to the workshop along with other family members that were visiting from out of state back in June. Since going to the workshop, I have lost over 30 pounds, I no longer have night sweats or the hot flashes and I feel great. Not bad for under 3 months since going to Alternacare. I am no longer tired all the time and have so much energy. I am getting so much done now. I worked with Dr Rob on all the issues I had and am confident in everything he has guided me throughout this journey. Dr. Rob diagnosed my issues and had a protocol that included a detox, an eating plan along with supplements.

I have suffered with psoriasis since I was 16 (now 32), PCOS since my twenties, and my weight nearly my whole life. Before going to Alternacare, I tried all types of ointments, creams, steroids, etc for my psoriasis, multiple doctors for PCOS, and several different diets to control weight. Since I have been going to Alternacare my psoriasis has greatly improved, PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome) is getting better because I now have normal menstrual cycles, and I have lost 47 pounds in just 3 months. Thank you Dr. Rob and all the Alternacare staff for making this experience life changing!

I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Gastritis, and Duodenitis by doctors who could only offer me a lifetime of Klonopin and Prilosec for my pains. To no avail, I tried to heal my body through diet, careful exercise, vitamins, and herbal supplements for a long time. After countless searches online for a naturopath on the south-side of Atlanta, I was shocked when I came across Alternacare's website. All of my ailments: chronic fatigue, brain fog, orthostatic hypotension, orthostatic intolerance, gastrointestinal problems, and cold extremities (just to name a few) were seemingly "routine" patients under Dr. Rob's care. With hope and skepticism, I made an appointment and began a long journey of healing. Through non-invasive procedures and tests, he was able to identify the root causes of my ailments and treat them carefully and systematically. It is with a smile that I can honestly say that I am happy today and don't feel "sick and tired of being sick and tired." I no longer wait all day just to go to bed; I no longer loath the morning time. I am happy to just live :-)

After losing 29 pounds, I feel more energetic and better about my overall health. Before coming to Alternacare, I had tried a few weight loss methods and was not successful. The most I lost undergoing these methods was 5 pounds. After hearing a presentation from Dr. Rob, I decided to visit the clinic and see what they had to offer. My goals were to lose weight and have more energy, the journey began. Dr. Truax met with me and listened to my concerns, he explained the process, and explained what was going on with my body. What I liked the most was that his first priority was to get my body back on track. Although I was anxious at first and wanting to lose the weight, I soon realized that he knew what was best. He prescribed the supplements needed to "readjust" my body and a meal plan designed to help with the weight loss. I was impatient as most people probably are and Dr. Truax listened patiently. He continued to monitor and counsel me on my progress and before I knew it, I noticed the weight loss! Overall, it happened over a course of 4 months. My energy level was up and I was able to exercise more without feeling like stopping. I am also sleeping better and waking up refreshed rather than feeling so groggy. I'm 52 years old and better able to keep up with my children who are in elementary school.

I began working with Dr. Rob via mail, telephone and email in October 2012. Two of my local sister-in-laws had been under his care and thought I might be able to benefit from giving it a try. I was suffering from panic attacks, a racing heart and sleep issues. After quick and painless testing, Dr. Rob diagnosed my issues and prescribed an eating plan with vitamin supplements. I am pleased to say that after sticking with the program for 10 months now I am nearly anxiety free and sleeping like a brick. I have had the added bonus of loosing 30+ lbs. He's a kind, compassionate man and I am so grateful for what he has dome for me. I would recommend him highly! Thanks Dr. Rob!

Dear neighbors, There is an alternative plan to masking symptoms with drugs. First one must discover the cause or the root to the symptoms we carry around. The body requires nutrients and Alternacare carries high-grade whole food supplements. When I first started I was taking supplements I did not need. Alternacare focuses on what you do need. The Dr.'s and staff care about your health and wellness.

Dr.Rob and Dr. Truax have turned my health issues around, enviromental, hormonal and skeletal. We are currently working on memory problems and having results. I believe I would have been seriously ill, had I not received the personal, individual treatment provided, at Alternacare, thanks to the whole team. What a blessing.
