Dr. Jon Repole
Your Jacksonville Chiropractor
Thought I would post this for people that have been asking me what I am doing, how I'm eating and why. My prayer is that maybe my story and experience can help someone else in their journey.
I would like to first thank God for the wisdom to seek him and His will for me. Next, a shout out and a sincere thank you to Dr. Jon and Heather Repole at Jacksonville Health and Wellness Center!
Here is a short version of a long story! This has been a long journey of dealing with health issues that manifested themselves into lots of weight gain and life stealing hormone issues. As far as my weight, it has been as high as 240 lbs. and today as a byproduct of getting my body healthy I am 161 lbs. But what you can't see in a picture is the huge benefits in my health and wellbeing. I began eating 100 % plant based and no processed foods on July 12, 2012 and as a result I was able to get off thyroid medication and progesterone (Praise God)! In trying to function on a daily bases, I was increasing my usage of both medications with little to no results. I am still amazed that I am now off everything and feeling awesome and losing weight! I have learned that weight is a by-product of health, so I don't have weight goals, I have health goals. My body will find its natural weight and I'm ready! I still have a ways to go, but I'm not who I used to be, I'm excited about who I am, but not yet who I'm going to be.....Let the journey continue.
"Dr Repole has Magic hands! For the first time in a week, I'm not in back/neck pain! It is so amazing! The alignment and EMS did wonders! I didn't need my Tiger Balm patches (in 6 different places) nor my heating pad last night nor ibuprofen! I slept a full 8 hrs which made for a more productive, successful day today! My daily living activities/capabilities have increased from barely a 5 out of 10 to an 8 af just one visit! I still need more help to fine tune but he gave me great pain relief (understatement) with his work. Plus, mentally & psychologically I'm healthier as well bc I'm not in constant pain! I know my treatment is working! it is such a good feeling to know you are doing something to repair the problem from within instead of masking the problem with medication or quick fixes where it will eventually rear its ugly head again. I can't wait to go back tomorrow! If you are in pain, make an appointment, you will be so glad you did! Or, be proactive & make an appointment to prevent future pain."

"I used to eat whenever food was in front of me, and I pretty much ate everything. There was not a lot I wouldn't eat. I ran and walked 7 marathons, did yoga, and so I generally thought of myself as healthy. Each time I went for my annual physical, the doctor would say that everything is great except my cholesterol is high. Would I come back in 3 months and get it checked again after changing my diet? Every year I would decide "I'm not going back for a second check because I eat well and I'm not going on cholesterol medicine!" Even my father said that no matter what he did in terms of his diet, he was not able to bring his cholesterol down below 210. And he eats very healthy. Since I got my high cholesterol from him, I figured there was nothing I could do besides take the cholesterol-lowering medicine. I talked about this with a friend who suggested I see Dr. Repole because she had learned a lot from him about eating and nutrition. The first thing he told me is that chicken has about the same amount of cholesterol as red meat! Dr. Repole taught me how to eat in ways that lowered my overall cholesterol by 21 points. This year my primary care doctor said I do not need to take cholesterol medicine! Besides the fact that I won't be on a pill for the rest of my life, my digestion has improved incredibly. I feel more comfortable all over. I have less bloating, gas, and more comfort when it comes to eating and digesting."
