Within days of adjusting my diet and taking Whole Food Supplements I felt better!

Success Story

Meet Bernadette

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Brenda’s for more than a year, and walking through her door was the single best decision I’ve ever made for my health!  Serious foot pain had sidelined me, but within two weeks, the pain was completely gone and I was able to get going again.  I continued regular adjustments with Dr. Brenda, and long-term neck problems vanished.  I then attended a talk Dr. Brenda gave about peri-menopause and menopause and realized that many “minor” symptoms I had been experiencing; trouble sleeping, weight gain, and low energy were part of a larger issue.  I consulted with Dr. Brenda, who recommended a range of whole food and herbal supplements based on an adrenal stress test.  The test results revealed, among other things, that I had a gluten sensitivity, something I’d never imagined.  Within days of adjusting my diet and taking the supplements, I felt better.  My energy level started to pick up, I started sleeping, and I felt better than I had in a long time.

Dr. Brenda offered a 21-day purification program to her patients.    She explained the process thoroughly – a combination of vegetables, fruits, and dietary supplements would cleanse my body from accumulated toxins and promote healing and weight loss.  I began losing weight with almost no effort at all!  I’ve continued to eat a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and organic meats, and I avoid processed foods whenever possible.  The change in my diet has also affected my family – my husband has started to lose weight and my children now prefer organic apples to potato chips.  I continue to lose weight gradually and effortlessly, and best of all, I feel fabulous!

SHE LOOKS FABULOUS TOO 🙂  “And, I’d like to show you how I can do the same for you.”

I was so tired and fatigued that I didn’t care about anything!

Meet Karen

Before seeing Dr. Brenda my state of health was a mess.  I was in constant pain, every task was an effort and I had absolutely no energy.  I would leave my part-time job and go home to take a four hour nap in the middle of the day.

My doctors told me I had a thyroid condition but the medication wasn’t making me feel any better.  I was so tired and fatigued that I didn’t care about anything.  All I wanted to do was sit on the couch and eat.  As you can imagine my weight was getting out of control and my family life was suffering.

As a result of working with Dr. Brenda and taking the natural approach, I no longer have to take daily naps, I have the energy to work two jobs, go to the gym and take an active role with my kids.  I am loving life again.

Oh, by the way, I’ve lost 50 pounds!


I had irregular menstrual cycles, difficulty sleeping and just wasn’t feeling myself!

Meet Kim

Last April I began to have an irregular menstrual cycle, difficulty sleeping and just wasn’t feeling myself.  I had gained about 10 lbs in the course of a year without really changing any of my dietary or exercise habits and was feeling resigned that this was just the natural aging process.  Neither my GYN or my IM had any real suggestions…

My chiropractor, Dr. Carleen Thum referred me to Dr. Sahlin

I have had no sleep difficulty and tremendous energy since beginning the natural management of my hormones and nutritional health.  Dr. Sahlin works with her patients to listen to their bodies and make adjustments/refinements as needed.  I am certain that I will have a much easier time with menopause than most of my friends thanks to this proactive approach.  I have been off of birth control pills for a year and for the first time am really able to understand my body and it’s changing needs.  

Thank you Dr. Sahlin!  I could not have done this without your help and look forward to your continued support.


I had reached a critical point.  I could no longer  function in my job or at home with my children.

IMG_0976I was at the ends of my ropes.  Insomnia, continual fatigue, stomach pain, bloating, joint aches, acne and sinus congestion were pushing me down.  I could barely function let alone get out of bed in the morning.  I simply couldn’t live in the funk I was in any longer.

I began working with Dr. Brenda and within a week I started sleeping through the night (and still do).  Within a month, my fogginess lifted almost completely, my appetite reduced, and I was beginning to experience ENERGY:) 

In three months of being on the program, my insomnia, acne, stomach pain, bloating and joint aches disappeared .  I lost 16 pounds with very little effort and my sinuses are much clearer due to a few dietary changes.

Dr. Brenda saved my life.  I tell that to every one who wants to know how I lost weight, cleared my skin, and regained the pep in my step and brightness back in my eyes.  Dr Brenda cares about women’s health and she takes very good care of me.  She will always be in my life and part of my children’s health care as well.
