Nutritional Healing Testimonials

Lose Weight

"I met with Bernie when I decided it was time to lose some weight. He educated me on nutrition and showed me some simple changes I needed to make to my diet…After trying very hard for 25 years to lose weight I…lost 30 pounds over the next 6 months." R. W.

“…I am healthier than I have been in 10 years! The most important thing Bernie has done is to share his knowledge about nutrition & exercise. I have lost 20+ pounds in the last 4 months, and while I have a long way to go, I am already enjoying the benefits of feeling great, and wearing my old clothes.” J.H.

“I’ve lost 20 pounds, gone from a size 40 to 36 waist, sleep better, have more energy, I’m off my acid reflux meds, and I’ve got my sex drive back.” J.R.

"I have used the Standard Process Cleanse recommended by Bernie. What can I say? WOW! I haven't felt this good in years. I am dropping weight and feel energized. Bernie is truly an expert in his field with a personable approach to nutrition and overall healthy living. Personable, knowledgeable, customer driven sums up what he is all about." B.G.

"I have dropped 25+ pounds doing the program you recommended.” C.S.

Lower Cholesterol

"In July 2008…my cholesterol level was at 236. I did not want to go on statin medications and wanted to lose weight. I started with the Standard Process Purification Program. My thought process became clearer and I felt better overall. I began following his dietary, exercise and supplement recommendations along with removing significant stressors from my life. In three months I lost 15 pounds and lowered my cholesterol to 181." S. S.

"With Bernie's help I've been able to lower my cholesterol and triglycerides levels over 50 percent. I was diagnosed with metabolic syndrome and pre-diabetic. My doctor was considering putting me on insulin in addition to the statins I was already taking. With my family history of heart disease and diabetes I was desperate to find something that would help me get off of any type of pharmaceuticals. I had read about and tried many different nutrition related advances but didn't seem to be getting anywhere. I knew there had to be better answers than what traditions medicine provided so I went to Bernie for help and within three months of following Bernie's professional advice my diagnosis has been reversed and my doctor has declared my numbers as excellent. As an extra bonus I lost 14 pounds without trying. Thank you Bernie!” P. P.

"I worked with Bernard to reduce cholesterol levels with out statin drugs. I am on my way to balanced levels and along the way I learned Yoga. I did not expect that so delivering extra levels of knowledge above and beyond made me very satisfied with his services. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to better their health, well being, with out the use of harmful drugs." J.K.

Control Blood Sugar

“…working with Bernie...I wanted to accomplish two things: lower my early morning blood sugar and lose weight—the same weight that I’ve lost/gained, lost/gained, lost/gained for the past 40 years...I’m not dieting any more! I did make a terrific lifestyle change! Result? …I can’t wait for my next doctor’s appointment. I’ve already impressed the diabetic nurse by successfully lowering ALL my blood sugars—not just the AM one and losing 25 pounds. Bernie is very knowledgeable and…he specifically tailored his recommendations to me." L.B.

Headaches

“For many years, I have suffered with bouts of headaches, insomnia and fatigue that were sometimes merely bothersome, other times completely disabling. I've been through all the medical and blood tests, seen allergists and naturopaths, psychologists and pain-management specialists, and nothing has really helped. So, my expectations of ever finding the reason for my disabling headaches and fatigue - much less a cure - were quite low. In fact, non-existent. Six weeks ago, I walked into Bernie's yoga class with a friend. The first thing Bernie said to me was, "You look familiar"... and it turned out that we had gone attended business school together 20 years ago. Naturally, I was curious about the path that led him from marketing management to teaching yoga. We talked a while after class, and I found out that he had completed his PhD in Nutrition. I shared with him some of my health challenges, listened to his solid and grounded approach to nutrition, and decided to join his list of nutrition clients.

Now, six weeks and three one-on-one sessions later, I have gone from skeptic to believer. Bernie provided clear, straightforward scientific reasons for recommending my particular diet and nutritional supplements, and I have followed them to a tee, with great results. My head is clear, I haven't had a headache for 6 weeks, I'm sleeping straight through the night, and I have significantly more energy. Oh, and I lost 10 pounds to boot.

It may sound trite, but running into Bernie at yoga that morning literally changed my life. I now know what I can do to keep myself feeling strong and well. As I say, I was quite skeptical at the outset. I have always been careful to eat what I considered a healthy diet, but there is so much mis-information out there that much of what Bernie showed me was new to me, and quite revolutionary. And it has worked.” L. S.

Improve Digestion

“Based on my meeting with you I have taken your advice on diet changes and I've noticed…changes in how I feel when it comes to the symptoms of my colitis...I have noticed wonderful results from the supplements that you recommended to me. They feel soothing on my insides and comforting.

I have taken your advice on eliminating gluten and dairy...still have traces here and there but I have GREATLY cut back. No more cold cereal. I start every morning with a fruit smoothie with my protein powder and oils, and milled flax seed. I snack on nuts and fruit. I keep a close watch on how much fiber I am getting so I do not upset my symptoms any worse. I also pay close attention to how foods affect me; if they make me tired I don't eat them. If I feel good from them I add them more often. I have cut sugar out and that is actually the greatest change for me. I know that is does nothing positive for me, it make this disease worse, it will make me fat, and I hate the low I get so quickly after the high. I am eating to live, not living to eat.

Having Ulcerative Colitis has made me so thankful for every single day that I feel good, and it makes me pray harder on the days I don't. I know that God is the ultimate Healer, but I also know that he has led me to the people that are making a positive effort to keep me well. Thank you for all you've done for me!” J.S.

“I am doing so well since we started working together. I used to have gas and bloating regularly, but now it occurs very infrequently. I’ve been gluten free for about 10 months and at this point, I don’t even miss any of the gluten products. As a bonus, I’ve lost about 5 pounds without even trying! I’m also limiting soy and dairy, since neither is very good for me. I’ve given up caffeine, Splenda, wine, and chocolate since they are all potential triggers for migraines. Overall, I feel healthy, I have good energy, I sleep well, I’m generally headache free, and my digestive system is working well! Thank you for being so optimistic when we started working together, and for giving me the advice and guidance I needed to stay on track.” J.E.

“My husband says it is now safe for him to go into the bathroom after me.” M.G.

Balance Hormones

“Bernie Rosen has been an inspiration in helping me get my health back on track. He guided me toward testing that unscrambled the imbalance in my hormones. He also helped me begin the process to modify and improve my eating habits… which has been a constant struggle. He recommended the purification program and other supplements that have made me feel healthier and have more energy then I have had in years. Relaxation was also a concept that he introduced me to and I started out with private lessons of Yoga and now I have been participating in group lessons at Yoga One.

Your words of nutritional wisdom are often on my mind and I am determined to continue to strive for a healthier life style. I am so glad I met you when I did I feel like you were really able to help me get to the bottom of the hormone issue and find the nutritional support I was desperately lacking to get me back on track.” A. H.

Blood Chemistry

"After a routine blood screening ordered by my Internist, I learned that I was anemic and that some of my other counts were off. I was sent to a Hematologist and a GI doctor. Eight vials of blood, an endoscopy, colonoscopy, and small intestine camera study later, it was determined that I had no blood or GI cancer, and that I should go to Walgreens, buy some iron pills, and come back in 2 months to be retested. Instead of going to Walgreens and taking the over the counter, highly constipating, stomach upsetting synthetic iron pills, I went to Bernie. He reviewed my numbers, gave me iron capsules that didn't cause any ill side effects, and several other supplements as well. Went back to the Hematologist today to get my results. He couldn't believe the improvement and asked me what I was taking. He had NEVER seen such a dramatic improvement in such a short time. He even asked for Bernie's contact information he was so impressed. When I asked him if I should continue taking the iron supplements (you can have too much iron) he told me to "ask Bernie, and follow his advice." I am obviously thrilled, relieved, and VERY grateful to Bernie!" S.B.

Depression/Anxiety

“Before consulting with Bernie on my diet I dealt with constant mood swings, emotional imbalances, severe pre-menstrual symptoms, digestion irregularity, and bloating. Not only did Bernie explain how various foods effect physical and emotional states, he also outlined a diet plan that helps to keep me energized and emotionally balanced. For years I have grappled with an emotionality and depression that were nothing short of draining - not to mention limiting in the work place and to my social life. Now I feel even-keeled and energetic. I had no idea that sugar was driving my irregular emotional states. I literally feel like a different person. Finding a more stable and better state of mind has been the most significant change, but as a bonus I've also dropped weight, decreased bloating, and pre-menstrual symptoms. I would definitely recommend Bernie's services to anyone who has ever thought their depression was simply a genetic predisposition or an immutable chemical imbalance of the brain.” W.J.

“I am so happy that I came to work with you! My body and mind are slowing changing the way they do business. I am cutting back on the Zoloft--from every day, sometimes two per day, down to one every other day. I think it is a combination of nutrition and 31 points practice. I can't wait to see what happens in the next couple of months!” Z.O.

Mental Clarity

“…I was really broken down both mentally and physically. I was on three different medications for depression and anxiety and was easily distracted to the point where I couldn't concentrate enough to read a book anymore, and reading is one of my favorite hobbies. I suffered from chronic headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. Bernie created a personalized plan … I noticed an increase in energy level and my thoughts started to clear. My belly flattened out and I was no longer suffering from stomach problems and bloat. My headaches and IBS are virtually gone. Right away Bernie knew that I was probably gluten intolerant, and he was right. His new plan changed my life. I never would have believed I could have stopped eating bread and sugar, but my body feels so good that I don't even think about eating them anymore. After my diet, health, and dependence on prescription medication improved, Bernie recommended I try the Standard Process Min-Chex for my anxiety. With the Min-Chex I went from three different medications to control my depression and anxiety down to just one at a reduced dose. Going to see Bernie was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Thank you for my health, Bernie!” J. F.

Regain Vitality

“…some pretty typical female mid life issues, weight gain, lack of energy, depression, lack of motivation. Bernie evaluated my diet and exercise routine, we spent a good deal of time working through changes to my diet and eating habits…taught me some wonderful relaxation and meditation/breathing techniques as well as developed a personalized yoga routine for me. I've put his suggestions into practice and feel like I am in control of my life, feel more relaxed and positive as well as having more positive energy to emit to the world. This was a very positive experience and I am thankful I met Bernie at this stage in my life.” L. U.

“I got my life back. I couldn’t hold down a job…didn’t know if I’d have a good day or a bad day…was 39 and my joints hurt all the time. The medical community wrote me off…suffered from chronic fatigue.. inflammation of my joints and muscles...trouble sleeping. I was on an emotional roller coaster with high anxiety. I had cravings for carbs and chocolate, IBS, couldn’t lose weight, and had no sex drive. In six weeks I lost over 25 pounds. I have more energy; I’m up every morning at 6:30 AM. Before, I never could get up before 9:00. My emotions are stable, my anxiety is minimal, my stress is reduced, and I’ve regained my sex drive. I’ve regained my life.” J. R.

Detox/Purification Program

“The most striking thing I have noticed in "changes" is the way my skin looks. My face is absolutely vibrant, which is not something I would normally describe my skin to be. It’s cleared up, it’s glowing, and there are virtually no pores that are visible. My whole life I've dealt with problem skin, so it’s very eye-opening to see what changes in my diet can do to affect it.” K.Y.

Erectile Dysfunction

“I am an active male in my late 30s who had been struggling with ED issues. This was a serious issue in my marriage, and in my attempts to resolve it I had progressed from exams to ensure there were no clear medical issues to acupuncture and off the shelf supplements with no results. I am a true believer in finding and fixing the root cause of an issue, so pharmaceuticals did not appeal to me. I sought Bernie Rosen's help to understand the root cause of my issue, and my outcome was amazing. What I got was an education on how my body functions beyond what web sites and fitness magazines can provide, and a plan to put my body back on track. I saw results from this approach in a few weeks, and maintained those results through diet alone around week 5. As an added benefit, I've noticed an improved ability for my body to deal with career and family stresses that I didn't have before. The best part is that my 'diet' consists of more of the things I want to eat vs. things I thought were 'healthy' to eat, and I have a renewed confidence that I can perform as I feel I should without depending on any drugs or other unnatural processes. I would strongly recommend working with Bernie to any quietly desperate men out there.” T.R.

Yoga for Exercise and Relaxation

“Bernie knows more about nutrition than anyone I know. He has a great ability to cut through marketing hype to get to the core of what we should be eating to maintain a healthy and balanced life. I also attend Bernie's yoga class - it is amazing how much better I feel after attending. I highly, highly recommend Bernie for both nutritional support and yoga!" M. M.

"I have been working with Bernie for several months now with personal yoga coaching. Mainly because of special needs. Bernie is very willing to work within my limitations, all while pushing me to improve. I would highly recommend Bernie." B.L.

"Bernie was one of the lead instructors for my Yoga teacher training. He did an exceptional job as an instructor/facilitator and it was through the teacher training that Bernie shared his extensive knowledge of holistic nutrition. I hired Bernie for nutrition consulting and the results have been profound. Through Bernie’s guidance I have improved my diet and made significant positive changes in my lifestyle. For example, the changes that Bernie suggested for my daily breakfast have created a consistent energy level throughout the morning and I no longer have to deal with the carbohydrate low in the morning that I have been grappling with for years. I would recommend Bernie for his yoga and nutrition training and consulting. His guidance will benefit any person desiring to make positive changes in their life." J.V.

Holistic Health

"I thoroughly enjoy working with Bernie...He provides me with information on my health and eating habits that was targeted to my specific needs…is caring, considerate and extremely knowledgeable about health and nutrition. I highly recommend, to everyone, that they at least meet with Bernie to discuss their current health and nutrition habits. You will be amazed at what Bernie can do for you.” S. K.

"Bernie is highly knowledgeable in the over-all health of the mind, body and spirit of the human body and seeks with passion to assist and pass on thus important knowledge to helping others achieve a healthy and spiritual life through diet and yoga." D. N.

Competitive Athlete

"Bernie has provided expert guidance and knowledge on both nutrition and wellness to me which has in turn helped me in competing at a very high level. As a competitive distance runner, food is fuel; without Bernie's knowledge and guidance I would still be suffering from nutritional deficiencies and sub par digestion. Bernie has also been nothing short of amazing in helping me develop my yoga practice and learn the benefits of yoga and relaxation. Bernie is an outstanding resource for all things nutrition, wellness, and the practice of yoga." C.V.D.

Health Practitioners

"Bernie is my number one recommendation for nutrition and supplement information for my patients. His work complements mine and my patients always benefit from meeting with him. The fact that he teaches yoga and relaxation in just an added bonus!" R.A., Acupuncturist.

"Not only is Bernie one of the most passionate HEALTH-care providers when it comes to nutrition he is also one of the most knowledgeable that I have come across. Bernie makes the powerful and complex field of true nutrition attainable and comprehendible for everyone. There is plenty of misinformation out there and Bernie easily differentiates the good from the bad from the insane. I have trusted Bernie with my patients and would recommend him to anyone looking to live a healthier life on their path towards happiness and being WELL." Dr. A.K, DC

"Bernie is quite thorough in his approach towards a patient's consultation and assessment. His extensive knowledge in his field of nutrition has helped patients with various conditions. His expertise does not require him to use any equipment or machines for patient assessment. He gleans quite a bit from the consultation and patient history therefore his assessments, approach and recommendations are quite accurate." Dr. H.G., DC

"I have consistently used Bernie as a source for all things in which he is expert- such as yoga, stress reduction and a general holistic approach to integrative health. I've quoted him in my upcoming book and I can't recommend him highly enough. He is knowledgeable, generous, forthcoming and honest, and he knows a lot! A really terrific person in every way.” Jonny Bowden, Nutritionist and Author
