First of all, we cannot thank each of our patients, families, and communities for their out-pouring of love and support in the short time we have had the honor of serving you in your wellness journies. It has been a pleasure getting to see new faces, get to know some of our long term patients better, and see the incredible health many of you are regaining by trusting us to get to the root of your concerns and ailments. Over our years in healthcare, we have seen a progressively worsening baseline of illness plaguing our society. We are proud to be able to validate a lot of what our patients have felt for a long time, but been unable to put their fingers on because “everything is normal” in their labs. Seeing an overall improvement of health in physical, mental, emotional, personal, and professional lives of those we serve is a great gift and we look forward to doing it for a long time.
As a healthcare clinic in the ever changing landscape of advancements, we are always looking to provide not only what our patients are asking for, but also to ease the challenges associated with seeking care. We are pleased to announce we are credentialed with Blue Cross Blue Shield NC which means (hopefully) more affordable visits and services to our patients. Our Medicaid managed care plan contracts are still in process with an unknown time frame of completion. Of course, we will still aim to make care available to those who are uninsured and underinsured in the best way possible by providing cash visits and lab work at cost-effective prices.
Some of our patients have been with us since Julianne started Hygenerate in late 2022. We are honored to share some of those patients’ progress pictures and feedback as well as those of some of our newer patients who started with us this spring.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words!
Our Patients Say it Best!
March 2023 I was the heaviest I had ever been in my life, I was always tired and had no energy. I was told by my PCP all my labs were normal and the best solution for me is weight loss surgery. That, for me, was not an option. It was a drastic answer when not all options had been explored. April 2023 I started my journey to a healthier me with Hygenerate. With Julianne’s functional medicine expertise she discovered I had a lot of things on my labs that could be optimized to improve my overall health, including that I have Hypothyroidism. With following Julianne’s mindfulness and moderation approach to healthy eating, the supplements and weight-loss injections, I have lost 22 lbs in 3 months. I feel amazing, have way more energy and starting to feel more like myself. I am the Patient Director at Hygenerate, I can relate, empathize and support our patients through first hand experience. I have a ways to go, but for once I have hope I will be able to reach my goal and to be the healthiest version of myself.
3 months on Ozempic, I have been too hard on myself for not losing more but now I see my pics and I’m blown away. My belly button poked out in the first one because it was so bloated and big. 20lbs down but a lot of inches lost (I didn’t measure) thank you Julianne this has been life changing!
I started this journey at about 200lbs, give or take a few pounds. The left picture is during that time. I was feeling a lack of motivation, a lack of self esteem and just not myself. I had heard stories about Wegovy and after researching it I just wanted to give it a shot. Julianne was recommended to me through someone who she had helped before. I reached out to her, she was so supportive and accommodating. She made me feel comfortable and excited when talking about my goals. Today I sit at a 40 lb weight loss since starting Wegovy, and I hope to lose another 20 lbs. I am still working towards my goal weight, but I feel like a new person. Wegovy is a journey and not a fast race, it still takes healthy choices, but it definitely took away the “food noise”. I could eat a slice of pizza and my body would tell my mind that I was done before reaching for another slice. Make sure you listen to your body, if you need to stay on a lower strength to give your body time you adjust, don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor about that. Wegovy is the help I needed, just stay motivated through the plateaus and make sure to take pictures to see the difference for yourself! Remember, all of our journeys have different time frames, and don’t think of this as a magic switch, but as a tool.
5 months on Saxenda/Wegovy. I’ve never felt normal around food until I started this medicine. My eating disordered mind was so hard to manage until I got help from Julianne! Thanks for all you are doing to help people get healthy! Approximately 35lbs down with little to no bad side effects. I can’t remember the last time I binged.
The main reason that Julianne started Hygenerate is because of her love for helping people become a happier, healthier version of themselves. Whenever we receive progress photos and testimonials from our patients, it serves as a reminder of why we are here.
