Center for Integrative Wellness Headache Results in Group Wellness Programs
Anonymous Group Participant Feedback “Just wanted to let you know that I realized one day that I'd not had a migraine headache in several weeks and that the pain in my knees has gone also. This is so great, I cannot believe it. I've also lost 21 pounds. I am in a weight management program, but I strongly believe that listening to the CDs and focusing on reducing my stress, has certainly played a pivotal role my ability to be true to my weight loss efforts. I have not been experiencing any binge eating, or cheating. My attitude is very positive, it has amazed my husband, who is being motivated to change his eating habits towards healthier eating by what he is seeing in me.”
