Before I started receiving treatment from Dr. Veronica Collings, I had an A1C of 12.1, I was over 310 pounds, was on 2 blood pressure meds, took 160 units of Insulin daily, had IBS, and my menstrual cycle was on daily!
Since 1988 at the age of 13, doctors have attempted to treat my hormonal imbalance symptoms with either birth control pills, Medroxyprogesterone, Provera, or AMEN hormonal treatments. For my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), they had me on 1000 mg of Metformin for years, and told me to just eat less and exercise. Well, eating less was a cruel joke since I had non-stop cravings for greasy foods and sweets. This was an ongoing way of life for me of trying to eat less, but couldn’t; and still exercising occasionally with minimum energy to do so since I was a child! Even though I was already seeing an Endocrinologist for the PCOS, I didn’t become aware of my Type 2 Diabetes until July of 2012 when I was admitted into ICU for Ketoacidosis (DKA) with a blood glucose of 998. I thankfully survived that episode, and have been on massive doses of Insulin since 2012. It wasn’t until this July of 2017 when I finally took the advice of a co-worker to see Dr.Veronica Collings. In a matter of 60 days after I started her Sugar Control program, I was down 20 pounds, my A1C went from 12.1 to 7.1, and I was down to 1 blood pressure med, and decreased my Insulin dose to 50 units a day.
I am at my 90 day mark, and I am almost down 40 pounds, I take 15 units of Insulin, and I just had my first normal menstrual cycle! While I am not completely cured of my Diabetes, I am well on my way to being off of my medications. The loss of weight on her Sugar Control program is just one of the gifts that come with her program. The real gift has been a sense of control over my body I never had! I am no longer feeling out of control with cravings for greasy foods or sweets, I can now know when I’m full, I am no longer experiencing painful IBS, and I am saving money on no longer having to take expensive Diabetic meds.
This feeling is incredible, and it is with great joy that I am finally starting to experience a normally balanced body I never knew. This program is a gift of life, and reset to my future!

“Greetings Dr. Collings.
I spoke with Carolyn recently and she mentioned you had asked how I was doing. I wanted to drop you a letter (long overdue) and let you know I am doing well – great actually!
I am still putting into practice all that you have taught me Dr. Collings. By learning about my different allergies to wheat, dairy, soy and rice, and being diligent in avoiding any foods containing these ingredients…my body has improved greatly. Yes, the scale has gone down (almost 25 pounds as of this morning) and my cholesterol work-up looks fantastic (cholesterol – 151 (down 35 points); Triglycerides – 66 (cut in half!); LDL – 91 (down from 115))! But it’s the amazing way I feel that is the best part in my eyes and no number on a scale or from my blood work could ever replace this feeling. My asthma has greatly improved (even within the first few weeks of seeing you, Dr. Collings), I can tell I am sleeping better and have more energy throughout the day – which is amazing since, as you know, in my line of work I have a 24-hour call schedule at times. I feel so in-tuned to my body’s reaction to foods, I can tell if I have something I shouldn’t. Many people keep asking me what I am doing, and I direct him or her to you. Unfortunately, working in traditional medicine for so many years, some people are still skeptical. This is is sad since I am living “proof” right in front of them!
In any case, I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know I am doing great and once my work schedule frees me up, I will be back for a ‘tune-up’. Thank you for your dedication to your field of expertise. All you have taught me has changed my life and I am forever grateful.
“Dear Dr Collings,
It’s been about 3 years since you said to me, That you can help me with my weight problem. I didn’t think I”d ever be able to stop over eating.I always mistakenly believed that I was addicted to food,but as you told me it”s not a food addiction,It”s a suger addiction.and once I detox from the bad sugers.I stoped having uncontrollable urges to overeat,and have lost over 100 lbs. Oh by the way,Reese, Tasty cake and ice cream make me nauseous now, If I can be of help to anyone by letting them know,Just have them give me a call,I hope I can be of help
Thank you so much.”

“Dr. Collings totally readjusted my thinking towards my eating habits and the way I treat my body. At first I was dubious over getting my “sugar fixed” as I could not see how this would benefit me. But I was willing to give it a go as something needed to change. I had just finished my collegiate athletic career and studies, and had put on the “freshman 15” all four years in school, putting me more than 60 pounds heavier than I wanted to be. I had just turned professional and needed to take a look at my life and what I really wanted from it.
So I decided to lose some weight and get back in the shape I need to be in to be successful during a competitive season. After Dr. Collings had set my sugar she explained what it did and the way I should eat, and why I had been eating the way I did. I was formerly in a downward spiral. For instance I was constantly drinking diet soda that gave me a sugar addiction. Then I would want ice cream, potato chips, etc the list goes on.
No matter how hard I tried I could not lose weight with these habits. But after the trouble-free procedure and education I lost 30lbs in six weeks of healthy eating. This resulted in better health, increased focus, more energy and greater zest for life. The biggest change was not craving fake processed food but getting fully satisfied from the natural sweetness of fruit and I also found deeper flavors in all natural sources.
This is not a diet or quick fix as you will see for yourself when you have been doing it for a while, as your body will be telling you how much better it is eating this way. I can assure you will not want to go back. In summation, this has been a really easy life shift in the way I see food and my body. We are all highly tuned machines that need the correct care and attention to run at peak performance for the longest time possible and this comes with eating correctly.
That’s where Dr. Collings can come in with the knowledge and education required for you to live a much fuller and happier life enjoying the natural fruits of our world. I cannot thank her enough for guiding me in the right direction.”
