“I knew David had great experience and knowledge in business and leadership and that everything he did was backed by research and science from multiple sources. And then, I discovered that he also had expertise in the area of health and wellness. I asked David what his secret to losing and keeping weight off was, and he agreed to meet with me. After asking me some questions about my health and my goals, he shared a plan on how to lose weight in a healthy manner. I followed his guidance, and literally, the weight dropped off on a daily basis – and it came off of my most challenging area – my gut. Within 60 days, I lost 27 pounds and went from a 42 waist to a 38 waist, and best of all, I felt great and had more energy than ever! And then I met with my doctor, and all of my bloodwork was perfect. And finally, this has been something that I have been able to continue to do and maintain for over a year. I would highly recommend that you take the time to meet with David.”Wendell Funk, President of the Wichita Independent Business Association
“I am an allopathically trained medical doctor and neuroscientist, so I thought I knew nutrition because it was my job to restore people to health. Then, I had to reconsider. Medical education spends two weeks on nutrition; the remaining four years are spent learning how to concoct pharmaceutical cocktails. If this formula works, why are we the most mentally and physically ill and obese population of Americans to date? It is almost the norm to have multiple chronic illnesses and autoimmune issues. Dr. David Robertson understands why, and he knows how to reverse the ominous trend. He is a true expert in nutrition as he can look at a person’s medical history alone, predict what has been amiss in their diet, and advise how to rebalance their way to health. Though not always conventional, his theories are backed with infallible logic. I am wholly a scientist and a skeptic, but even I believe that a holistic approach to healthcare is far more effective at getting to the root of the issue than throwing fistfuls of pharmaceutical band-aids on the symptoms. I trust Dr. Robertson’s expertise, deep domain experience, and wisdom more than the current dietary recommendations.”Jacqueline Newel, M.D., M.S.
