Mariela’s New Lease on Life

Here at Longevity, our mission is to love God and serve people, and we love hearing stories from patients who have experienced amazing transformations with their health. Enjoy this interview with our patient, Mariela, as she tells her story of improved health and quality of life! 

What were your primary health concerns starting at our practice? Describe your symptoms.

In 2018, I started experiencing many scary systemic inflammatory health issues: migraines, dizziness, poor coordination, brain fog, extreme fatigue, weakness, vision disturbances, bilateral joint pain, joint swelling, muscular pain, nerve tingling, muscle wasting, skin rashes, gastrointestinal symptoms, increased anxiety, sleep disturbances and much more. After seeing 19 different specialists, 6 months of countless MRIs, CT scans, spinal tap, blood work, endoscopy, colonoscopies and many other tests, no one could figure out what was causing my symptoms. I remembered telling a good friend of mine, “I wish someone could treat my symptoms and I as a whole”, that’s when I was recommended to Longevity Health Center.


What were your first appointments like? What was your response to the treatments and therapies?

I knew I was at the right place from the moment I stepped foot in Longevity. I immediately felt a sense of peace and reassurance. I was no longer scared. My initial appointment was with Dr. Anderson. He was extremely thorough, compassionate, and very attentive. I was tested using the Bio-Energetic testing method and other non-invasive tests, which gave us insight into what had been causing all of my symptoms. Dr. Anderson put me on a detox and supplement protocol to kill toxins and support my immune system. I was also recommended to do a series of HOCATT treatments, which tremendously helped my body detox faster and more efficiently. I highly recommend it!


Describe your overall health picture today. What improvements have you experienced?

Today I feel 90% better. Two years ago I could not walk 1/2 a block. Today, I am walking 3-4 miles daily, bicycling with my son, and even went back to school and started a new career path in natural health. I owe it all to Longevity Health Center.


What is your overall impression of Longevity Health Center, the practitioners and staff?

I have seen a few of Longevity’s practitioners, and they are all qualified and wonderful. Alice Honican, Dr. Anderson’s daughter, is fantastic, and Lisa in the Nutrition Shop is extremely knowledgeable and so kind! One of the many things I love about Longevity Health Center is that it offers many services and treatments all under one roof. I even bring my 13-year-old son for help with improving his overall health. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan!
