"Upon review of people whom have entered my life even for a short period of time, and who of these influenced, motivated and guided me towards a more fulfilling life, I can wholeheartedly say you are at the forefront. What was it that impacted me in a way as to create a drastic positive change in my life?
When I first came to Southwest Naturopathic Center, I was depressed, had achy muscles and bones, and was morbidly obese. I was not happy with myself.
What I noticed immediately about you was your approachable personality that radiated knowledge and professionalism. Once you began talking to me and assessing my current health status, I became relaxed and felt comfortable because I sensed that you truly cared about my holistic wellbeing. It didn’t feel like I was at the “doctors” office, it felt more as if I was talking to a friend about all my ills. You asked questions about all areas of my life - social, emotional, physical and mental and I just couldn’t stop talking...I felt I could trust you.
You gave me exactly what I needed to regulate my thyroid, help me quit smoking (really liked that “feel good” tincture), the amino acid that elevated my mood to “happy” status and all the other vitamins and minerals to help me get better.
Although I already knew I needed to eat healthier, exercise and get more socially active, I was not doing it. I gave you excuses and expressed my fears and you gave me guidance and reassurance.
I remember one specific follow-up appointment; this would be the one that would motivate me to put all my efforts into sticking to my weight loss plan. I recall standing on the scale and looking at your face as you said I had lost 6 pounds. It struck me that your face truly showed sincere happiness and excitement for me....it was contagious.
Well, it all worked, I did everything you recommended and this completely transformed me from the person that I was at that time.
Today I am a completely different person from the one I was three years ago (physically, emotionally and socially). I used to weigh 267 lbs and now I’m at 160 lbs. I make very healthy and delicious food choices (chicken wings do sneak into the diet now and then), I’m addicted to exercise, which I do 4-5 times a week (oh yes...love the weights), and engage in various social activities... dancing classes, hiking (even did a ten mile hike), have lots of friends and I am always willing/confident to try something new. I love the new me.
I continue to go to SWNC, and I am satisfied with the medical advice and service I receive. Yet, there hasn’t been anyone like you. Being seen by you was an outstanding medical experience; one in which healing occurred holistically for me.
You really are good at what you do. Your knowledge in physical fitness together with naturopathic medicine gives you with a winning combination. Yet, what you bring with you, your most valuable asset (I would say), is your inherent ability to connect with people. You truly care and it shows. I am so very grateful for your exceptional medical care and fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet you. I wish you success and abundance in all areas of your life.
Wholeheartedly thank you,"
"Thank you for helping me down this path toward health. I have spent 45 years feeling like my head and my body are separate and to now be doing the work to feel that I am connected is so wonderful. And the most amazing part is that I love it- the workouts, the food I eat, the way I feel and look. I look forward to the journey of this work ahead as well. Your experience, guidance, and patience is a gift to me. "
"I am an old (53) marathon runner, who has had to go back to square one and rebuild. William has taught me how to do that in a way that has made me stronger, more balanced, and as a result my enjoyment of running, hiking, and biking has improved immensely."
