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.

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.

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!

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.

Finding Dr. Rob was an answer to our prayers! My 4 year old had been having behavior problems for a few years...not just tantrums. Unexplainable outbursts, irritability, violence towards herself and others, extreme mood swings, etc etc. Nothing we did had results or answers. We had her evaluated by a top child Psycologist as we thought she may be autistic or have other developmental problems...she found nothing atypical. We went to a councelor...etc. After only one week of getting on Dr. Rob's diet and supplement plan I saw a change in her....as time went on bigger and better changes. After having to remove her from the classroom mid-year in PreK, she has completed a full and sucessful year in Kindergarden! So much about her has changed and her total "welbeing" is wonderful, without drugs!! The psycologist gave us no real answers just that if things didn't get better she may not be able to function in a classroom! I am so grateful to Dr. Rob for setting us on the right path!

Our son lost his ability to speak, his social skills, and some motor skills after receiving routine 15 month vaccinations. Dr. Rob at Alternacare developed a plan based on our son's specific situation and we put it into action. It was amazing seeing the transformation right before our very eyes! Our son is now speaking, singing, and is a social butterfly! He has gained back his motor skills as well. We are forever thankful. He is still progressing and we can't wait to see what the future holds for him!

After being sick for years, the most urgent problem I had was a blood pressure reading of 235/125 and serious water retention. Doctors had put me on blood pressure meds, lasix, and channel blockers and later beta blocker. I lost 13 lbs. the first week, but my blood pressure would not come down. Another week , and another 8lbs and still would not go any lower than 180/100. I decided to go see Dr. Rob. After supplements and an eating program to improve my health, my blood pressure is normal, and I have weaned myself off all medications. It is a long process, because of other complications , and health problems, but Dr. Rob has greatly helped me in regaining my health. I highly recommend Alternacare, for their knowledge and understanding of healing the body naturally. Dr. Rob and Dr. Truax are outstanding in what they do.
