“Ten months ago I weighed 230 pounds, struggled to manage my type 2 diabetes, had to use a CPAP to sleep, and couldn't walk 2 flights of stairs without losing my breath. To date I have lost 50 pounds, run one to three miles a day, no longer need a CPAP, and have essentially reversed my diabetes. Dr. Paulina helps me understand and implement the changes in my diet, eating schedule, and other lifestyle factors that make this possible - all without drugs, exotic therapies, or expensive supplements. Getting guidance from Dr.P is one of the best investments I ever made."

"I had the pleasure of attending a zoom talk that Dr. Paulina gave to my women's group recently, on boosting our immune systems during the Covid19 pandemic. In an uncertain time, her talk was reassuring and wonderfully informative. As a physician assistant, I thought I was well-versed on this subject, but I had a lot to learn about the importance of certain vitamins, healthy nutrition, exercise and mental self-care. Her manner is authoritative yet approachable, the information science-based yet practical. Everyone was left with a feeling of being able and equipped to incorporate meaningful healthy changes in our lives. We especially appreciated Dr. Paulina's "Super 8 Challenge"! I highly recommend Dr. Paulina's coaching to anyone considering making positive changes in their life."
