Lost 18 Pounds!*

Laura E.,

My medical history stumped the entire medical world for 20 years before I met Dr. George Scheele in 2006. For the past 20 years I have had tremendous difficulties with wild nutritional swings that could only be relieved by sleeping for 48 hour periods. Because I was bedridden for days once or twice a week, it has been almost impossible to keep a steady job. As a teenager I developed bulimia and anorexia but also rebounded with eating binges that increased my weight to 150 pounds. My Mother had a serious weight problem (220 pounds) and was stressed, anxious, depressed and sad. My father was tall, thin and taciturn. Although I used my father's discipline to avoid the weight problems of my Mother, I developed a more serious metabolic and weight disorder, one that threatened the very core of my existence as well as my life.

As described above my body was metabolically out-of-balance for the past 20 years. Over this period of time I saw at least 30 doctors, including physicians, cardiologists, infectious disease doctors, immune specialists, acupuncture experts, Holistic physicians, chiropractic doctors, experts in oriental medicine, doctors of homeopathy, lyme disease specialists, experts in Ayurvedic medicine, kinesiologists, radiologists and energy healers. I was treated with every possible medication, including thyroid hormones (T3; T4), Cortisol, Estrogen, Progesterone, Pregnenolone, Testosterone and DHEA. Nothing worked to balance my metabolic swings.

My nutritional state was also out of balance. At breakfast and lunch I would limit myself to hot tea. Later in the day I suffered from sugar and carbohydrate cravings, but also intolerance to these foods. I frequently developed hypoglycemic attacks, with chills, nausea, headaches, tachycardia, and mental disorientation. Although I would leave food on my plate at dinner, I would develop cravings at night for sugar in the form of cookies, ice cream, cake, candies or cereal grains. No matter what I did, I could not conquer my cravings for sugar. I vacillated between strong motivations with great outbursts of energy and prolonged periods of weakness and fatigue, which developed quickly into periods of depression.

After 20 years of these uncontrolled symptoms and sufferings, a close friend took me to see Dr. George Scheele in La Jolla, California. Dr. Scheele talked with me for over an hour and examined my skin, scalp, hair, nails and throat. Initially perplexed, Dr. Scheele was kind enough to review the extensive notes that I kept from my visits to more than 30 doctors. When we met again Dr. Scheele had thought long and hard about my medical condition, which had stymied the entire medical establishment for 20 years. On that second meeting Dr. Scheele told me that I was suffering from a deficiency of protein and amino acids. He gave me Factor4, which contains power amino acids, protein, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. He told me how to mix the powder into a shake and instructed me to drink a Factor4 power shake at least 3 times a day.

Naturally, I was skeptical that anything would work after 20 years of trying everything. At first I did not take the Factor4 shakes on a regular basis. When Dr. Scheele found out that I was not taking Factor4 as instructed he kindly, but firmly told me that it was necessary to take the shake every 4 hours from arising in the morning throughout the entire day until retiring at night. This time I followed his instructions.

When he called a week later and asked how I felt, I broke down in tears when I told him that I had begun to feel healthy for the first time in my life. I did not believe it was possible to be cured of my sufferings after so many years. I was reduced to tears because Dr. Scheele had given me health for the first time in my life. I also could not believe that 20 years of my life had been severely compromised to the point of severe disability, even the possibility of death. It was hard to believe that more than 30 doctors had come up short in understanding my condition over all those years. You can imagine how thankful I am to Dr. Scheele for solving my medical problems, which, as he explained, were quite severe and extreme, putting my very life in jeopardy. I cried even harder when I realized how brave he was to not let me resist his help, to see through my delusions and to persevere so that the medical treatment could save my life.

Even today, I am so grateful to Dr. Scheele because, with Factor4, I now live a normal life that allows me to enjoy a steady job as well as a normal relationship with my friends and family.

I have taken the time to write this story in some detail in the hope that others may benefit from the Dr. Scheele's foresight and mission to cure the many people who suffer from poorly understood metabolic and weight disorders in today's world.
