Meet Marty K.

“After 34 years in law enforcement I retired – partly due to developing chronic back pain. I was literally in constant pain, with limited mobility.

For over 7 years my family doctor tried all the traditional medical approaches, but he could not provide relief. I went to a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, and various physical therapists and none of these therapies provided relief either. Desperate, I underwent a series of spinal injections (at the cost of $8,000.00) by an orthopedist and they also failed.

Then a physical therapist directed me to Dr. Charles Harpe. He reviewed all my medical records and created an innovative program of neuro-muscular manipulations and soft tissue injections that treated the root cause of the pain and inflammation – not just the symptoms. After two months I have diminished pain, greatly increased mobility and am now able get back in the gym three days a week. I highly recommend Dr Harpe because he was able to focus on the cause of my pain and then relieve my pain when other people couldn’t.”

Meet James W.

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.

At our next meeting I agreed to begin eating a natural food regimen, and track everything I ate, with the goal of reducing my weight and eliminating as many meds as possible.

The next step was a visit from Claudia Harpe to go through our cabinets and refrigerator to be sure we understood which foods were good and which were bad. This was invaluable help.

As my weight loss began, my need for meds began to lessen, then some disappeared altogether. Over the next 7-8 months I was able to drop about 60 lbs., resulting in a reduction of more than ½ of my meds. The most exciting development was the complete elimination of Diabetes meds. I am now only taking a small cocktail of high blood pressure meds.–NOTHING ELSE!

The reduction of my waist size from 54” to 42”, has enabled me to begin a light exercise program, which Dr. Harpe has lead me to(kicking and screaming). Hopefully this will result in further weight reduction.

I am extremely grateful to Dr. Harpe for his help and continued interest in my health and well being. He is a “one of a kind” physician! I owe him my eternal gratitude.

“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

AND NO MEDICATIONS!”

Thank You – Linda S.

Meet Linda H.

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.

I had been taking ever-increasing amounts of insulin by injection, plus oral diabetes medicines. The cost was phenomenal even with my Medicare drug program—I kept falling into that stupid donut hole!!

And the inconvenience and bad effects of the insulin, including weight gain, were huge too.

In a month or two, I had lost substantial weight and was off most of the insulin. By March of 2014 I had lost 35 lbs. and took only one small shot of slow acting insulin daily. I have stayed at that level until the present, August 15, 2014.

I have gone from a size 14 to a size 8. I feel incredible. I go to a gym several times a week and walk a lot. And I have managed to continue this way of living even through such rough times as Holidays (I lost 2 lbs. over Christmas/New Years), flu, family losses, etc.—that is, while living normal life. I hope to continue this for the rest of my life.

My love and thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Harpe.”

Meet Diana W.

70 Pounds Down & Counting!

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!

The medication I have to take for the autoimmune disorder, namely Prednisone, did not help my weight issue any. I had gotten to the highest weight in my life and seemed powerless to really make a dent in it. In the past I had gained and lost the same 50 lbs through one diet or another, always to have it creep back on and then some. Doctors would always advise me to lose weight, but never gave much practical advice on how to do that beyond the standard eat low fat, high fiber, whole grain, count calories type of diet, which never really worked for me, especially long term. I cannot think of a worse drudgery than counting calories!

After reviewing my medical records, Dr Harpe looked at me on that first visit and asked me what I thought my most pressing medical issue was right now. I said the Relapsing Polychondritis, as I was still trying to get a handle on that fairly new diagnosis. But really, in my heart, I knew it was my weight. I just didn’t have it in me to go down that path again. But he did! He told me all these other issues, though serious, would not be the thing to likely take me out of this world first, but that my weight was setting me up for a stroke or heart attack. Even though I knew this logically, it finally was setting in. I had just lost my youngest sister to a massive heart attack in April of this same year, just a few, short months earlier.

So, after a few tears and acceptance of where I was in this, Dr Harpe offered a plan. Different than any other physician had offered me before, so I was intrigued. Get off the processed foods, the grains, and the sugar. I got his book, the Naturvore Power and read it immediately. I finally began to see the reason behind all the weight struggles. The way our food is engineered to create cravings and even addictions! It was resonating with what I believe I had already known, just didn’t have the science to back it up. Now I did. I lost 7 lbs the first week alone, it was incredible. As I purged all the junk out of the house and myself, I started to see a real difference in my health, and my weight. Less joint and body pain. More energy. I started hiking again, and riding my exercise bike, just being active to a degree that I hadn’t been in a very long time. I have five granddaughters, and a new grandson due this Summer, and I really want to be interactive with them all, and spend a lot of time making memories.

I keep a food journal per Dr. Harpe’s request. It is very simple, just what I eat for the day, no calorie counting, but it does keep me accountable, knowing that I am going to show it to him on my next visit. Dr. Harpe has been so positive and supportive and so enthusiastic and excited about my progress, which really makes me feel I can accomplish better health with my efforts.

I feel very blessed and thankful, that the Lord has put special people in my life to guide me in the way I should go, with a cheerleading team to boot! I still have a ways to go, but I am confident that with eating natural, unprocessed foods, as God intended, and following after health, that I will get better and stronger, day by day.
