I met Dr Harpe in June of 2014 when he became my new primary care doctor. At this point in my life my health was going into a real downward spiral. I could only walk short distances without being winded. I had back and joint pain so severe I had taken to walking with a cane. Also had arthritis, acid reflux, diverticulitis, heart arrhythmia, borderline high blood pressure, migraine headaches and an autoimmune disorder called Relapsing Polychondritis, which attacks cartilage and connective tissues. Also, I was extremely overweight for not just my height, but for just about any height!
In October 2013 I began seeing Dr. Harpe because my previous physician retired. At my first appointment, Dr. Harpe asked for the reason I was in his office, I replied that my previous doctor required me to be checked every 6 months for various health problems—high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gout, cholesterol and some other problems I can’t even recall. At the time I was 68 years of age, 5’9” tall and almost 290 lbs. Dr. Harpe said I needed to do something about the reason I was in such poor shape, so that I would not have to continue many of the 10 different medications I was taking. Dr. Harpe asked me to read his book, “ Naturvore Power” and come back to see him in one week.
In July 2013 I began as a patient with Dr. Charles Harpe and his treatment and patience have changed my life. I began his recommended Naturvore way of eating about Sept. 1, 2013. I am 70 years old, diabetic, and have been 40 plus pounds over weight for at least the past 10 years. I have had problems with my weight all my life. I developed the diabetes about 1993. Dr. Harpe and his lovely wife Claudia gave me so much time, detailed instruction, and support. As I began the Naturvore way of eating, along with regular exercise, my blood sugar improved enormously and, as Dr. Harpe had promised, the pounds dropped off. I have never been so astonished in my life.
“Dr Harpe, I want to congratulate you on this profound, mind-opening system to health. Thank you for doing what you do.” –Carol T.
Dr Harpe, I am stunned. You took me on as a new patient at 73 years old and reduced my cholesterol from 294 (Triglycerides 525, LDL “unable to calculate”) in August 2013 to a cholesterol level 218 (Trilycerides 134, LDL 146) by October 2013. My life has improved and NO MEDICATIONS! Thank You. –Linda S.
