“Companion Health has completely changed my life. The team’s personalized approach, overwhelming support, and attention to detail allowed me to finally understand and address the root cause of my health concerns, leading to significant improvements to my overall wellbeing.
My diet has been tailored to my needs, my blood work has never been better, and I feel more motivated than ever to take on the day.
Cheers to the team at Companion Health for helping me along this journey!”
“I got my first job when I was 16 years old and have been working hard ever since. Working hard was my philosophy . . . and working hard became my identity. I am proud of what I have accomplished over the years, but in the pursuit of a better life, I lost sight of what a better life actually meant.
After decades of pushing as hard as I could, then becoming a parent, then losing a best friend to suicide, then the pandemic; I found myself overweight, constantly sick, grief stricken, and filled with panic, anxiety, and dread; and then I got shingles on my face. I was 45 years old and literally felt like I might not make it to 46.
I knew that I could not continue like this anymore, and so I began my pursuit to better health. My immediate concern was a panic disorder that made me feel like I was on the verge of having a heart attack multiple times a day. A friend posted on social media about having her own anxiety issues and that she had found a great therapist so, I scheduled my first therapy session. During a few months of sessions, I learned some tools and techniques for managing my anxiety and she also helped me work through my grief, but I was still feeling terrible. It was during one of my sessions though that she thought that some of my symptoms may be health related, and she referred me to Dr. Jorge with Companion Health.
I reached out to Companion Health the very next day and set up a consultation. In that first appointment and exam with Dr. Jorge he took the time to listen to my concerns and discuss all the things that may be contributing to my symptoms. Many of which I knew like poor diet, lack of exercise, to much work, and lack of sleep; but there were other things too that I did not realize, and he explained it all in such a way that clarified my paths and gave me confidence that I could set course in the right direction.
Dr. Jorge ran several tests and panels that revealed, poor gut health, poorly timed and very high cortisol spikes, and the presence of high levels of mold in my system from my 17 years as a home inspector crawling in some very nasty attics and crawlspaces. He made a specific plan for me that involved, better sleep habits, exercise and dietary changes, mediation, targeted supplements, and a plan to extract the mold from my system. After feeling so terrible over the past two years I decided that I was going to follow the plan and give it my all.
Dr. Jorge also set me up with my amazing health coach who was (and still is) there for me every step along the way. Big changes like this are never easy, but I am excited to say that as of this moment I am on day #164 of my health journey and I am 40 lbs. lighter, exercising and eating right every day, still working at managing my workload and stress, and am taking the time to find and collect moments of joy along the way.
My health coach asked me to set some goals early in the process, and one of my aspirations was to run a 5k without stopping. This to me was a very lofty goal, but today I just completed my third 5k of 2023 and finished in 6th place out of 300+ participants. I am averaging just over a 7 minute miles and am ready to work towards my first 10k.
As I run now, I am filled with intense gratitude for everyone at Companion Health. I never new that taking that first step would lead me to where I am today. Companion Health is unlike any doctor experience that I have ever had. They listen to you and establish a proactive plan, but they are also easy to schedule well visits, and are literally there for me if I need them. Joining Companion Health was the best thing that I have ever done for myself, and my wellness has never felt so sustainable before. Companion Health is what health care should really look like.”
“I came to Companion Health to look at my overall health picture and not just to the doctor when I was under the weather. I wanted to be more proactive towards my health versus reactive.
I can honestly say that The level of service and personal care is a complete one-eighty from my prior experience with my GP’s. The access to the advanced diagnostic testing, the depth to which those test are explained, and the access to other functional medicines have completely changed the trajectory of my health. I met my initial goals and am shooting for even higher goals as I age!”
“As someone who has lived with Crohn’s Disease for 16 years, I have met with A LOT of doctors. There is no doubt that I went into my initial consult with a bit of skepticism but I can assure you that the consult far exceeded my expectations and every experience has since been the same.
When I first met with my Health Coach, Liz, she asked me to set some goals. One of those goals was that my new lifestyle changes would “trickle down” into my family.
I would have never imagined that within my first year as a patient, two of the most important men in my life have also joined the Companion Health way of life: my husband and my father-in-law. It was evident to my husband that I was changing, for the better, and overall he had a, “happier wife and happier life” because of it! Naturally, he was curious. Whether it be the supplements I was taking, the changes I was making to our pantry, or the stress management skills I was gaining he had to know more for himself. So, off he went to a consult and he was all in!
My father-in-law, who has always been a health fanatic, witnessed the improvements in my overall wellbeing. While visiting us from Connecticut, he agreed to a consult with Dr Jorge. He quickly saw the value in a Functional Medicine practice and became a patient, which he can do virtually! What greater gift to give to ourselves and our families than the gift of prioritizing health?
I am so thankful that these two leading men in my life, and the lives of my children, are committed to being holistically healthy! We are so grateful for the CH Team and I am happy to report the “trickling” has continued with our friends and family!”
