Testimonials        Core Care Center

Shelly (26) regarding weight loss: 
"Before I came to Core Care Center, I was depressed about the way I felt and looked. I had no energy. I tried exercising of all sorts but still gained weight. I tried everything and was ready to give up hope. Then I was introduced to Core Care Center. With the help of Marc Weill and his staff, I have way surpassed my goals. My life has changed. My self confidence and self esteem have returned. Within six months, I have lost over forty pounds and have a great deal of energy. It was well worth the hard work and I would do it all over again. I don't know if I could have done it without their guidance."

Marci M. regarding rheumatoid arthritis: 
"One day I felt a soreness at the base of my toes. I didn't think much of it at the time. A few weeks later I noticed that the knuckles on my left hand were very sore. Then I began waking up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain shooting up my arm. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, "an incurable autoimmune disease" I was told by my rheumatologist. In the weeks that followed my symptoms grew worse. The pain in my joints increased, I felt exhausted, drained of energy, and I had more painful flare-ups in the middle of the night. The pain in my feet made walking difficult. My doctor prescribed drugs that could potentially have very damaging side effects.

At this point I consulted Marc Weill at Core Care Center, who recommended a detoxifying diet and a regimen of nutritional supplements. Contrary to my doctor's recommendations, I chose to not take the DMARD drugs (disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs). Gradually I began to feel better; my energy returned. After 5 months I was free of pain and my life returned to normal. I feel that I have made a 90% recovery. Two moderately swollen knuckles on each hand are my only remaining symptom. A year after my diagnosis I returned to my rheumatologist for a blood test, which came out negative for the RA factor. He was surprised at the results I had achieved; he had been very skeptical about the treatment plan I followed. An additional benefit is a 26 point drop in my cholesterol, never high to begin with, and a lowering of my blood pressure to 110/70. Thanks to the excellent care I received at Core Care Center I remain in good health and have been free of pain for over a year and a half. I live an active life, including hiking and teaching Yoga."

Alan Briscoe regarding a child's chronic illness:
"Few experiences are worse for a parent than seeing your child sick, but seeing them disabled every year for months at a time with a chronic illness that didn't respond to any treatment takes it to another level.

For us, this all started when Jordan was in 4th grade. He started having sinus infections and long term colds. He had sinus surgery to open a clogged sinus passage, but still he got sick every winter. The symptoms included fatigue, congestion, dizziness, constipation, lack of concentration, and irritability. While sick, he would sleep 16 hours per day and still be tired. He missed weeks and later, months of school each year. He barely graduated from 8th grade and missed the entire Spring semester of this freshman year in high school.

Over the years, we took him to see over a dozen doctors and specialists including pediatricians, allergists, immunologists, pediatric gastric-intestinal specialists, ENTs (ear, nose, & throat specialists), psychiatrists, and counselors. Diagnoses from the medical community included asthma, mononucleosis, depression, cat allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, and others. Several doctors said that since they couldn't find anything wrong, it must be "all in his head" and that we should force him to shape up and go to school. For years, Jordan was on maintenance doses of antibiotics to hopefully prevent more illness. Nothing worked and Jordan continued to get sick for longer and longer periods of time each year.

I was actively networking the problem, telling everyone I met about the situation and seeing if they had any ideas. One day, one of my new clients told me about Marc Weill and how he had helped her with a difficult medical problem. I called Marc that day and he first saw Jordan a few days later.

Marc took one look at Jordan and told us to cut refined sugar and flour out of Jordan's diet. He recommended a number of supplements to rebuild Jordan's intestinal tract after the years of antibiotics had killed off the good bacteria and slowed it down to a crawl. He also introduced Jordan to the Light Beam Generator that uses light energy to stimulate the lymph system and eliminate toxins from the body. Jordan felt measurably better after just 1 hour on this machine.

When the doctors found out about this approach, they were very negative about it saying that we were "poisoning" Jordan with the supplements and that the Light Beam Generator was quackery. Never mind that it is FDA approved. We ignored them and stopped taking Jordan to them because none of them had ever helped him. Jordan has not needed to go to a doctor because of illness for over 2 years.

During the year that he was recovering, Jordan used the Light Beam Generator once or twice a week. Each time, he would feel better for longer and longer periods of time. During this 1-year recovery period, Marc would also call us at home every week or so to check in with Jordan. He stuck with Jordan and really cared about how he was doing. It has now been almost 3 years since Jordan started seeing Marc and Jordan has been symptom-free for over 2 years.

I believe that without Marc's help that Jordan would be a complete invalid by now instead of the normal, active teenager that he has become. Marc's recommendations resulted in almost immediate improvements to a chronic illness that had resisted medical solutions for years."

Jon Beck regarding an abdominal injury:
"As a former college athlete, and now active cyclist and yogi, I have had my fair share of musculoskeletal issues. Marc and the Core Care team never fail to treat my symptoms, but even more importantly, Marc diagnoses the root of the problem and provides treatment protocols that address the acute symptom(s) and long term prevention.

I recently sustained a lower abdominal injury that was diagnosed as an inguinal hernia by my primary care physician. Not wanting to risk an unnecessary surgery, I asked Marc for a second opinion. Through thermography and Electro-Dermal Screening/Vega Testing, Marc determined I was suffering a deep abdominal muscle strain and not a hernia. After an hour Rolfing session, I walked out of his office symptom free! The Core Care team uses diagnostic and healing methods that are safe, effective, and complimentary to traditional western medicine and the results are there to prove it."

Will Waghorn:
"I have found Core Care Center to be both insightful and understanding in their excellent treatment of my health. I have made great improvements after following a targeted protocol of nutritional supplements and occasional bodywork. They are also refreshingly easygoing whilst being thoroughly professional in all their communication."

S. E. regarding Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome:
"I spent my childhood in the 1950's in Sacramento in the middle of an orchard which was our family business. Pesticides, fungicides and DDT were constantly used. As I grew up, I had many childhood diseases starting from when I was six years old. The list includes mumps, measles, chicken pox, scarlatina and polio. In 1985 I was bitten by a tick and developed Rocky Mountain Spotted fever which affected me so badly that it took over four months to regain my strength. In the years that followed I developed intense and chronic insomnia, brain fog and my ability to handle any kind of stress was very affected. A second tick bite in 2000 left me with heart arrhythmia, and severe fatigue. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease with second to highest titers.

Over the past 20 years I have seen more than twenty doctors, both regular and "alternative." I have done antibiotics with no positive response, IV Phosphatidylcholine and Glutathione detox for two years, and chelation therapy to list a few. All were "standard treatments" as prescribed by the doctors. It has been a full-time job searching for solutions, wading through treatment modalities and Lyme specialists with little and inconsistent results.

I came to see Marc Weill in February 2004 and was relieved to receive a level of care that I had not experienced before. Marc and his staff really listened to me, taking a very thorough history of my problems and using the information and in-house analysis to create a custom protocol of whole food supplements; an experience I had not had before. Marc has patience and a great deal of knowledge, and has acted above and beyond, doing retests and changing the protocol whenever necessary. Along with the using supplements, the direction he has gone with me is in strengthening my immune system, slowly cleansing my body of chemicals and recommending dietary changes that support my digestion.

As a result, since working with Core Care Center, with their approach to strengthen the body from the inside out, at the rate it can handle, I have made slow but steady progress. I am three times more active than I was a year ago, my brain fog and flu-like symptoms have decreased, and my "bad days" have gone down 60% in frequency. Where I used to go down for months at a time, I now come back in two days when we change the protocol. I am very happy with the progress I have made with Marc and the staff at Core Care Center and looking forward to more."
