“The team at Modern Medicine has made a huge impact on my physical health and mental clarity! I came to Modern Medicine frustrated because of other medical professional’s responses to my numerous symptoms. “Welcome to your 40’s,” they all said! That was not the answer I wanted to hear, so my friend recommended that I come to Modern Medicine. Dr. Rice listened patiently as I explained my symptoms, including constant bloating, fatigue, moodiness, weight gain, hot flashes, foggy head, and more! He offered me immediate feedback and recommendations that did not include prescription medications. One major recommendation was to modify the foods that I eat. So, I met with a nutritionist, Ashley, who encouraged me as I committed to a 60-day strict food protocol. She was readily available for all of my questions any time/day. Following the completion of the 60-day food protocol, I was 20 pounds lighter and virtually symptom free! Because of Dr. Rice and Ashley’s guidance, I feel better than I ever have and I’ve been able to maintain my physical improvements and mental clarity for several months now! Thank you Modern Medicine!”
Before seeing Dr. Rice with Modern Medicine, my heath was dramatically declining. I was overweight and on several medications for many years, including blood thinners, statins, blood pressure medicine and acid reflux medicine.
It was during a visit with my neurologist to treat my sleep apnea that dietary habits where first discussed with me in a clinical setting. I had no idea that there could be a connection between what I was eating and how I was sleeping! He ended up referring me to Dr Cory Rice at Modern Medicine in Forney.
I met with Dr Rice and after some incredibly thorough lab work, he assisted me in setting goals for losing weight, getting off or reducing my meds, and improving my energy and memory. I am an analytical person and his explanation of the science and the steps needed to get to optimal health was encouraging.
Dr. Rice found that I had antibodies to gluten that can be related to Celiac disease as well as insulin resistance. He recommended a therapeutic lifestyle change program tailored to my specific condition and needs.
A very integral part of that was the next appointment with Ashley Howell, my personal wellness coach. She was just as thorough as Dr Rice and together we laid out a program to first cleanse my body of toxins and then nourish it with a food plan that addressed my issues.
At my three month checkup, I found out my Celiac antibodies were gone. At my six month checkup, my insulin resistance issues were gone and my fasting blood sugar levels were normal and I was no longer pre-diabetic. Within a year, I lost 30 pounds, stopped taking statins, and stopped taking acid reflux medicine. Today, my blood pressure medicine has been cut in half and I have been taken off of blood thinners. In addition, I recently had a calcium heart scan that indicates I have the lowest risk factors for heart disease with no indication of heart plaque.
Seeing the dramatic improvements in my health as a result of the therapeutic lifestyle change program administered by Dr Rice and Ashley Howell has motivated me to continue eating healthy and living my life in a way that creates optimal health!
God bless and good health to you all.
