Mary Jo Transforms Health, Reduces Cholesterol

The comprehensive health review I had at the Charlotte County Public Schools Employee Wellness Center provided the wake-up call I needed to address my elevated cholesterol and triglyceride numbers. My blood work results made me see the long-term risk they could have on my overall health and quality of life.

Krystal Heintz, FNP, reviewed the results with me, recommended a three-month trial of a statin drug, and became my official health coach. With her help, I eliminated most sugar, unhealthy fats, red meat, artificial ingredients, alcohol, and caffeine. I read nutritional labels to pick the best foods and drink more water. I now have a fitness tracker, walk up to 5 miles daily, and perform weight and body mass index checks three times a week.

With Krystal’s help, I’ve dropped 31 pounds and decreased those pesky cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Krystal’s positive energy and support are vital to achieving my health goals. I could never thank her enough for all her encouragement.

Marathon Health’s patient resources are life-changing. My outlook is more positive every day as I get healthier. I sleep better and wake up knowing my healthy choices make a huge difference in my physical and mental wellbeing.

My friends have noticed the difference. I tell them it started with the blood work available through Marathon Health and continued with health coaching. The fact that a person can make all these healthy choices with Marathon Health’s support and see so many great results is truly transformational!
