“ I have not felt good since I had mono 30 years ago but conventional doctors never listened. The initial labs Dr. Gorla ran showed numerous issues, after taking the recommended formulas and following Dr. Gorla’s plan, the second labs showed just a few remaining issues. I now have so much energy; I can have activities scheduled every day where before if I did something active one day, I was “in the bed” for two!! My life has improved in so many ways. I didn’t realize how “bad” I felt until I felt “good” again. I can plan activities with friends and family, shopping trips, sight-seeing trips, etc. and know that I will feel good all day and still have energy when I get home. My sleep is improving along with my health. I’m off blood pressure and acid reducing meds. I’ve lost 28 pounds in 4 months! I can even tell that my posture has improved due, I’m sure, to the exercise plan.Elizabeth T.
““I was feeling terrible and not showing any improvement. I was overweight with lower back pain, high blood pressure and high sugar levels. I could not stand up very long on my feet and didn’t have any stamina. A relative of a friend had been to see Dr. Gorla and was pleased with the results. I made a phone call and got an appointment.
I started a Wellness Program and in 4 months had lost 37 pounds and lost 50 pounds in 7 months. I have lost more than 51/2 inches in my chest and 5 in my waist. My A1C (blood sugar marker) dropped from a 8.1 to a 5.8. My daily readings are all acceptable. I feel much better and have much more stamina. I am also able to do my mowing and yard work. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gorla!”Mike R.
“ At my initial consult, I requested help for my anxiety for which I had been taking medicine for about five years. I was hoping to find a drug-free solution. During the evaluation, Dr. Torrey explained that anxiety can often times be a symptom of other imbalances, and he asked about my health history. In addition to my anxiety, I also have a history of infertility, endometriosis, hypoglycemia, high blood pressure, kidney problems, and a slew of “slightly off” lab values, all of which conventional medicine had told me they had “no cure for” or it is “isn’t a big deal.” Through Dr. Torrey’s investigative eye and thorough blood, saliva, and stool labs, we were able to find the root reason for my myriad of health problems. Now I am on my way to being healed for the first time in my life through targeted supplementation based on my lab results and medical history. I am incredibly grateful for the care I have received from Dr. Gorla because conventional medicine had left me completely empty handed.”C.S.
“I was sleeping 13 hours a day and was still exhausted! I also was having abdominal pain and excessive weight loss with ongoing bouts of unpredictable diarrhea. I was miserable. After my consultation with Dr. Gorla, I decided to take control of my wellness! After following my individualized wellness plan, I am now free of abdominal pain, food intolerances, bouts of diarrhea that I have suffered with for over 20 years! Dr. Gorla is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met, but he’s also compassionate and approachable.”K.B.
Are You Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?
The facts are clear. Year after year, the World Health Organization (WHO) ranks the US as one of the sickest populations in the developed world, despite the fact that we spend more money on healthcare and consume more pharmaceuticals than any other nation. The truth is, the conventional medical model, while crucial for emergency medicine, is very poor at resolving chronic, recurrent health problems. Our system is one of disease management and not healthcare. The goal of healthcare should be to get people healthy.
In the body systems are interrelated and “cross talk” so as one system becomes dysfunctional it often has a negative affect in other systems. As these dysfunctions are not addressed, chronic disease develops, leaving you chasing symptoms with drug therapies, while the inflammation worsens. This is often devastating not just to the individuals suffering with the dysfunctions, but also families.
Dr. Gorla discusses how using functional medicine can help. Functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of the problems, and help the body to function properly again. He outlines a path to wellness, using his proven step by step system, and relates some real-life wellness success stories.
The following 4 areas often need to be addressed to reclaim ones health:
