I was diagnosed with stage III kidney failure and was referred to Dr.Mary Washington. So I was expecting to receive some kind of medicine but what I got was a plan just to eat foods of a plant-based diet and exercise. Also I have hypertension. After about nine months I am no longer needing any pills for high blood pressure and know my kidneys are back to normal. Thank you Dr. Washington for caring enough to tell me the truth about the foods I was eating that were causing me to be unhealthy
I have accomplish so much on the program and I advise everyone to try it.
I think Dr. Washington is on a journey which should accumulate in allowing us to have an outstanding awareness of what we can do in order to improve our health. Because I thought that I was on a declined and that was it. But based upon information Dr. Washington has made and from other lectures, makes me more knowledgeable. I feel that I can improve my health status. Especially as it relates to my kidneys. Because I sure don’t want, as she continues to say, be on dialysis. I don’t think I can make it.
So if If I can continue to attend these types of presentations as she moves along bringing in additional people that will allow me to become more aware of what I can do, I will be highly appreciative of her. I think Dr. Washington really is doing an outstanding job at this stage of the game.
I started seeing Dr. Washington about a year and a half ago. Before then I was just going to my regular doctor and they were telling me that my kidneys were not working as well as they should. But after seeing Dr. Washington she takes time to review everything that was on my reports. When I get my labs she gives me a thorough, very thorough report. She lets me know exactly what I have done and what I should be doing. She tells me what I need to improve upon. With this clinic that we had today, it’s just something else that she’s brought forth to say if you eat right, treat your body right, you can heal yourself.
But the most important thing that I have to do is make sure that I eat the right foods, drink enough water and be consistent in what she’s asking me to do.
I think Dr. Washington really pushes eating right & living a healthier lifestyle in order for your body to heal itself. This is very rare in this day and age because you always find a doctor that always want to push a pill or push some type of supplement or all these things that always have a side affect on the body. There is always some type a byproduct that is made when you are in a position that you have kidneys that are not functioning properly or certain things like diabetes going on, hypertension, you really need someone that’s going to help your body to heal itself and not add medications that your body is going to become addicted to or won’t react properly if you stop taking them.
So it is important to teach a person how to live a healthy lifestyle versus thinking that they can’t do it. So you just give them a pill instead because they won’t do right.
So so I am really thankful that I met Dr Washington and thankful she takes the time to go through every step and says “you know what, I’m not gonna put you on another pill. I want to get you off of your high blood pressure pills.” And I am very thankful. I really enjoyed that she works with other healthcare professionals, nutritionists and yoga instructors…everyone who is on line of making me a healthier me.
