It has been four years since I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I had all the symptoms, rash, achy body, headaches, nausea and I felt extremely tired. I was treated successfully with antibiotics and supplements to build up my immune system again. Within the next three years, I was bitten by 3 more ticks and I was once again treated each time successfully with antibiotics and supplements. Once I completed my last antibiotic therapy, my Lyme doctor took a blood test and I tested positive for Bartinella bacteria. Again he put me on antibiotics. While I was taking these antibiotics I started feeling very nervous which was causing heart palpitations, headaches and I felt nauseas. I stopped the antibiotics and I made an appointment with my general doctor who is an infectious disease specialist. He told me not to finish the antibiotics and that my body has had too many antibiotics in the last four years. He felt that my stress was causing me not to feel well. A few weeks later I developed a chronic cough. I went back to my general doctor and he treated me with a 5 day antibiotic. I started to feel a lot better but I still had the cough for four months. A few months later I started developing rib pain, knee and foot pain that would come and go. I developed a very gassy stomach every time I ate anything. I developed diarrhea. I had diarrhea for 1 month. Finally, after talking with my mother-in-law, she suggested I see her nutritionist (Rebecca) that she has been seeing for over a year or so. My mother in-law also told me that since she has seen Rebecca her high cholesterol level has gone down 100 points and she also no longer has pains throughout her body that she has been living with for years and she just feels great. I have been seeing Rebecca for 6 months. She is remarkable and she cares very much for her patients. She was able to pinpoint my aches and pains throughout my body through techniques she uses TBM and CRA. She determined that my body was full of bacteria which was causing my aches and pains. My liver and pancreas where not working at its fullest capacity which was causing all these pains I was experiencing. I was also experiencing a lot of headaches. Rebecca put me on supplements and a diet to cleanse my system and flush out the bad bacteria Also, because I took so many antibiotics over the past four years she felt that my body was stripped of all my good bacteria and nutrients in my body. Since following Rebecca's plan I feel great again. I don't have any of my aches and pains, I lost a lot of weight, my complexion looks very healthy, my hair and nails feel stronger and shinier, I no longer have diarrhea. My rib, knee and foot pain has gone away. And I very rarely get headaches. When I see Rebecca again she puts me back on track. She tells me not to beat myself up that everyone is human and everyone gets tempted. She also suggests that I take a look at myself to see what is working in my life and what is not. She suggests making a journal to determine how I can change my life for the better and to elevate stress in my life as much as possible. I have learned a lot from Rebecca and everything she tells me makes a lot of sense. The proof is how my body is reacting positively to her plan. I think of her as a healing angel. Michelle B.
My eyesight is better, I didn't need the reading glasses for the fine print today. Thank You! Anke S. PS My foot is better too!
You will be delighted to know that my hot flashes were dramatically better almost immediately after my visit and the TBM. I continue to take all the supplements as well, and for the past two nights I have only had one wake-up flash! An enormous improvement. Thank you for all your caring and persistence! Caroline T. Xoxo
I have been taking bcp for 18 years for severe cramps that I get with my period until I met Rebecca. She told me I was calcium deficient and since I have been taking a calcium that she recommended-I have no more cramps and I don't need that medication any more. Patricia B.
I wanted to thank you for seeing me. I am doing so well! My cyst is almost gone! It's amazing. The hot/cold treatment along with the supplements are really doing well. I am so pleased. Doctors couldn't even do anything for me, or at least take away the symptoms. Thanks so much. Thank you also for all you do for my mother. She loves you. You have been a blessing. I can't thank you enough. I am the biggest advocate of you. Thanks for allowing the Lord to work through you! God Bless, Jill M.
Initially I sought out nutritional advice from Rebecca because I was confused. With so many diet programs on the market and conflicting advice everywhere I turned, I just didn't know what to eat anymore. Like most Americans, I had tried all kinds of pills and programs only to continue getting heavier every day. By the time I made my first appointment with Rebecca I was at least 80 pounds overweight, very unhealthy and desperate. Although I thought that Rebecca would give me the magic answer to becoming thin again, I ended up with something so much more valuable to me, my health. Rebecca and I began working together in February 2004. My life before this consisted of sleeping all the time, chronic headaches and frequent illness. From September 2003 to February 2004, I had missed 15 days of work due to illness. This is especially remarkable when you consider the fact that I am a teacher and we all know that teachers have many holidays anyway. Believe it or not, I had never considered that what I was eating and all those visits to an M.D. were what was making me so sick. I was a pill popper and had no idea that the pills I was taking to feel better were actually destroying my body and making me feel worse. The worse I felt, the more pills I took. At first I followed Rebecca's advice by blind faith. This was my first exposure to CRA and it was very different from what I was accustomed to with conventional medicine. I certainly wasn't getting any better with the help of MD's, so I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. As Rebecca began explaining to me how the body works and what medications actually do to the body, I opened my mind and everything started to make sense to me. As the months pass, slowly but surely, my health and quality of life are improving. I no longer sleep 14 hours a day. I haven't been sick, not even a sniffle, since April and my headaches are few and far between. Am I still overweight? Yes. However, as my body becomes healthier, it is getting easier and easier to lose the weight. Rebecca predicted this from the beginning and she was right. Rebecca's support and advice have become invaluable to me. With patience, perseverance and faith in Rebecca's expertise, I have finally found that "magic pill." It was within me all the time. I just needed the knowledge and guidance to realize my potential. Jennifer P.
Just wanted you to know that yesterday was the best day I've had in about 2 years. I have a little irritation this morning. I hope we're almost there. Many, many thanks! Chris N.
I just wanted to let you hear the good news about my thumb. This past Friday was my scheduled surgery day. It's been 6 weeks since my injury. The surgeon came into the waiting area and looked at my thumb, did a few strength and flexibility tests and then told me that I didn't need surgery. How awesome is that??!! I was soooo excited to hear the good news. Just wanted to share it with you b/c I know you had said from the beginning that I wasn't going to need the surgery. I'm so glad I waited a bit to see a surgeon and then waited a bit more before getting on the schedule for surgery. Thanks for your help and support. I appreciate it! Thanks. Cb
I'm feeling so much better. I notice a big difference when I go for my morning walk. My lungs feel clear; my breath isn't labored. My joints stopped aching again. Thanks for you help. Teresa N.
Rebecca convinced me of the benefits of the SP Cleanse. She sat down and carefully walked me through the process that, she felt certain, would clear up a variety of maladies. For one, I had a bout of ulcerative colitis, and a recent diagnosis of a stomach ulcer. Let's see, how can I describe myself delicately? I was overweight, had heartburn, was constipated, had itchy skin on my back with no visible sign of a cause, and had to use only the very strongest of deodorants, to name some fun facts about me. I was totally committed to all that she said this cleanse entailed. Upon calculation, I estimated that I took in about 1200 calories a day. The first two days were difficult and when I couldn't simply wean off coffee abruptly, Rebecca said that green tea would be acceptable but that I should gradually change to caffeine-free teas. I started to feel amazing energy as the week progressed, on a diet of supplements, teas, 3-4 shakes a day, unlimited vegetables, excluding only a handful, and some fruit. My clothes started to loosen visibly.The results were outstanding. In less than 3 weeks I had lost 27 pounds, most of which was toxic waste, I'm sure, that my body couldn't rid itself of. My itchiness went away, and I now am able to use Tom's of Maine deodorants that don't contain aluminum and antiperspirant components. My ulcers were well on the way to healing--no further pain and absolutely no heartburn anymore. I went down 2 notches on my belt buckle and one pant size. At this point, Rebecca advised that I gradually reintroduce some foods not on the cleanse and monitor my body's response to them. Rebecca's advise and support throughout this trial was invaluable and life-changing. I would never have had the discipline to do this without her. Her incites and understanding of the body systems make her an incredible practitioner. Pure Newtrition to me really refers to the new life that you can find in excellent health, that doesn't involve expensive doctors, medications that further tax the body systems by overloading the liver, and kidneys with synthetic components that the body cannot utilize, and exposing the body to their potentially harmful side-effects. It really is possible to achieve this new found health and way of living! Helen K.
"God puts certain people in your path, and Rebecca is one of them put in my path. August 2003 I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a slow growing cancer. I knew in my heart that aggressive chemo and radiation were not for me. I asked her to be a part of the team to advise me on how to handle it naturally. She set into plan my diet, supplements, exercise, etc to improve my lifestyle. It is now a year and a half later and I feel better than I did then and the oncologist said that "I don't need chemo or radiation...at this time!" Praise God!" Sherry M
"For the past ten months Rebecca Karchere has shared with me her valuable knowledge and guidance regarding my health and diet. Rebecca's experience and ability to diagnose root causes of my ailments has made a remarkable difference in my life. Today I can comfortably say how great I feel and as a result makes life more enjoyable". Steven C
“I met Rebecca when I attended a class given by her for Adult Education. After many years of chemical medication use, I was ready to try another method of helping myself that would effect my body in a much more positive way.After many many years of not being able to breath through my nose, I came to the realization that I will have to breath through my mouth for the rest of my life. Rebecca helped me to finally breath correctly...through my nose. I sleep better and feel less tired not having to struggle to bring in the so needed oxygen we all need to survive. Words can not express how great it is to do something that so many take for granted. I am very grateful for Rebecca's help. I will continue to work with her andwould never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is ready to heal themselves the correct way. Naturally. "Marie A. H
"I learned of Rebecca and Pure Nutrition thru a friend and I am forever grateful! Rebecca has changed my life! Prior to meeting with her I realize how misinformed I have been about nutrition and understand now that we literally ARE what we EAT. I sought out Rebecca to help me with weight loss and to help figure out why I was sooo tired and ill all the time. I have been seeing her now for only four months and so much has changed. I have lost over 20 lbs and have so much energy now. I cope better with stress, my skin complexion has improved and I don't feel sick anymore. It is flu season and everyone around me is sick and I somehow have not been afflicted. These changes are life changes and one must be very disciplined in order to reap the benefits but I will never go back. I do not take any synthetic medications anymore and instead rely on good nutrition and organic supplements. I tell everyone about Pure NEWtrition and encourage them to make an appointment as this has truly changed me inside and out. Thanks Rebecca!" Melissa H.
"I have been working with Rebecca for 2 years now and I have never had better results with weight loss and management. I never was a believer in taking supplements, because they made me nausea. However, Rebecca's organic brand of supplements were different; I did not get sick. She taught me what foods would be best for my body. I lost 17 lbs. I have maintained my weight which never happened with Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Slim Fast or the other fad diets. Whole foods not processed foods is the key to having a healthy body." Jackie
" Rebecca has opened my eyes to a whole new way of taking care of by body, especially being a vegetarian. Before meeting Rebecca, I was eating boring foods and taking the wrong supplements. Now, I feel like she has created a better me." John
" PRAISE THE LORD! I have never been so healthy in all my life.Approximately 2 years ago the phone number of a holistic nutritionist was given to me. Actually the phone number was for my nephew who was at that time diagnosed with stomach cancer. However, I kept the number thinking that I would call it one day to get myself on a healthy eating plan and lose some weight, which I had been struggling with for a number of years. That was my goal. I did not call to make an appointment until May 2004. On the day of my scheduled appointment - May 24, 2004, I received a call from the doctor with the results of a biopsy I'd had stating that I had tested positive for breast cancer. I knew then that I had to move forward. God is good, because I had actually called earlier in the day (prior to receiving my test results) to cancel the appointment. If I hadn't gotten sick, I am not really sure if I would have kept that appointment. I do thank God, because not only am I going in the right direction of allowing my body to heal itself, I have also been getting very good readings for my blood pressure and cholesterol WITH NO SYNTHETIC MEDICINES!! This is after 28 years. PRAISE THE LORD!! " Loretta J. B.
" In less than three months, I can already feel a healthier difference in me and my body, thanks to my sessions with Rebecca. While she offers a lot of suggestions on how to make changes in eating habits and overall living habits, Rebecca never pressures you into making those changes and lets you go at your own pace. Thanks Rebecca!." Cara B.
After one solid year of battling with hives and other strange skin conditions, my chiropractor sent me to Rebecca Karchere for diagnosis and treatment, as my dermatologist could not figure out what was wrong with me. Rebecca's thoughtful interview and wonderful administration of CRA convinced me that I had come to the right place. As my hives left and my skin began to glow, I became a believer in the REAL nutrition I was receiving from my supplements, analysis and thoughtful eating plan. I am still in the process of whole body self-healing; however, I know for certain that I sleep more soundly, have more energy, and my immune system is much stronger.Pure Nutrition is worth every penny! Amanda H.
