My husband and I have been on the candida/hypoglycemia program for 7 days and we are both absolutely amazed at the difference we feel already and in such a short time.
When I wake up in the morning, I am now feeling rested and ready for the day. No longer do we get the “afternoon sleepies” and are sleeping much better at night. Increased energy levels are amazing.
I have not had the body aches and the lethargy/depression seem to have abated. Added benefit is we have both lost around 4 lbs in a week. We have been sticking to the diet pretty rigorously.
We did have one blip, which really brought home how bad refined sugar is. We went to a wedding Sunday and did well with the food, but broke down and had a piece of cake. We both had horrendous headaches the rest of the day into the evening and felt terrible. Lesson learned!
When I started the program, I figured a lot of the claims were hype, but if it worked half as well as claimed, I would be happy. Well, it works absolutely as well as stated on your website testimonials and we are now true converts.
Dear Dr. Z
I want to thank you for the study you have done on Hypoglycemia, and for
I was in very bad physical condition when I got in contact with you. I did not want go anywhere or see anyone. I felt as if I was in another world most of the time. My nerves were very bad and I was weak and shaky quite a bit of the time.
Thank God and
you for the diet you put me on for a month and for the supplements. With the
cleansing, the supplements, and eating
right, I now have my life back. I am still on Medipro.
I have actually had days and partial days of feeling so much better since I started this regimen last Thursday that it was a no
brainer to just follow course.
I started on 9/1 and have completed a week+. Some days I've only been able to have the supplements or the drinks twice due to travel schedule inconvenience, but always at least twice and I've been very strict on the diet end. Feel great, lost about 5 pounds already. Thanks.
Dear Dr. Z,
I am amazed what these products have done. I am more amazed that a doctor I have never met, especially over the internet,
seems to know more than the several doctors that I have seen (including nutritionists).
I'm 55 years old. 40 years ago I had surgery of my left knee. I've had knee pain ever since. I have been contemplating knee replacement surgery because the pain has become relentless and kept me up at night.
Since childhood I've had problems with my feet. I've suffered from depression since my teenager years. Asthma started when I was 21 years old. Low back pain has been my constant companion.
Over the years I went to different chiropractors for chronic low back pain. Nothing was ever solved. Within a few days the same symptoms returned.
I was really sick of being sick. I finally made an appointment with Dr. Z.
I must admit that initially I resented having to take all those pills and submit to a really boring diet for candida and hypoglycemia - I was a chocolate addict, I used to have bagels, peanut butter and jelly, plus three 2-3 cups of coffee every morning for breakfast .
To my utter amazement, within a few days my knee pain disappeared completely. I walk faster, with more confidence, not just in a self protective mode.
I've not used an inhaler since I started on Dr. Z's program.
The depression lifted nearly immediately. I find that I need less sleep, I wake up refreshed at 5:00 in the morning.
My food cravings have all but vanished.
My name is Alene.
I'm able to basically walk again. My knees were so bad I couldn't walk up and down the stairs or sit in a chair. They are now 100% better.
I am in the 3rd week of your anti candida diet and supplements. I am losing weight, feel better more energy and better mental function, but not 100% yet.
Thanks for your help
Dear Dr. Z,
I am starting to feel much better, more energetic, not feeling the need to sleep as much. I observed the other day that after taking the supplements an organ in my lower left abdomen (pancreas?) was throbbing and beating significantly.
I am beginning to feel more sexual. My head is clearing, not so much brain-fog.
The depression is not anywhere near as severe and I must say that I've been feeling happier the last couple days and not so lost in gloom and sadness and worry.
I'm feeling really clear-headed and good right now.
Shane L. Burlington, Vermont
Dear Dr. Z,
I wanted to let you know that it has been about 5 weeks since my first appointment with you and I have been very happy with the results thus far.
I have lost 15 lbs without even really trying. My acupuncturist remarked that my skin was noticeably improved.
My energy level is better, I am not over eating. Digestion and elimination are improved and my food cravings have essentially been eliminated.
I feel that my memory has actually been slightly improved which is interesting because it was slowly getting worse with each passing month.
Then of course there are the intangibles which I cannot really put my finger on but there is a general return to normalcy or the way that I used to feel many years ago.
Tom M, Visalia, California
Hi Dr. Z
I am 45 years old. I came to you on the recommendation of my wife, because you have helped our son quite a bit.
For approximately 1.5 years I have been suffering from recurring panic attacks and anxiety. Along with those came heart palpitations and sweats. I suffered a nervous breakdown a while back.
I could not handle the extra pressure and stress at work very well. I often suffered from unbearable twitches. Every other day I had to go home because of that.
Also, it was difficult for me to be around a lot of people. I could not tolerate fluorescent lights in stores and shopping malls. I also had severe heartburn for several years. Medications did not really seem to alleviate my condition. I took many.
Well, you recommended a number of supplements and put me on a strict hypoglycemia and candida diet which I faithfully followed. I figured anything was easy compared with the troubles I had gone through.
You also prescribed custom made orthotics. As you explained they could alter feedback to my brain, thus change my brain function. You demonstrated that through a change in muscle tone in my thigh muscles. You told me that the brain governs all human functions including muscle tone, and you indicated that orthotics might well change my emotional status, not just biomechanical imbalance.
Amazingly, within two weeks I experienced major changes. The heartburn is gone. The anxiety and panic attacks have vanished. I feel more comfortable in a crowd. Fluorescent lights do not seem to bother me any more. I feel more relaxed. I am more of a father and a husband.
When we tell our friends and family about this change without medications, hardly anybody believes us.
Thank you for all your help and concern.
Bill B., Grass Valley, Ca
I'm 30 years old. For the last 15 years I've suffered from chronic fatigue, sluggishness, chronic cough, mood swings, depression, lack of ambition, and chronic low back and hip pain. My brother-in-law recommended strongly that I see Dr. Z.
Dr. Z discovered that I was allergic to many foods, that my digestion was not working properly, that I had candida, and hypoglycemia. Dr. Z placed me on a nutritional protocol that included drastic dietary changes and various supplements. He also ordered custom made orthotics.
I must say that the first week was not fun. I wanted to quit badly and go back to my old ways, but I hung in there.
Within two weeks my life was changed. Many people around me thought I was pregnant because I exuded so much glowing life energy. I have a lot of energy which is constant. My cough is gone, I lost ten pounds.
Since wearing the orthotics I have no more low back and hip pain.
I feel truly good about myself. I am a better parent and wife. I've so much more patience now.
Kristen F. El Nido, CA
Just wanted to let you know that I am still experiencing much success with the Medipro and supplements. I continue to use the Medipro shakes twice daily and have lost 26 pounds and have had very infrequent hypoglycemic "episodes." I feel much better and walk 30 minutes daily. Several people have asked me how I've lost weight and I've given them your web address - I hope they give it a try.

I just wanted
to say that I am so glad that I found your information on the internet.
I have finished the recommended protocol for Hypoglycemia and will continue
to use the Medipro. I am still taking the protocol for the Candida/ Digestive
Suzanne S., Wisconsin
Dr. Z, I finished the 4th week of the protocol this week, and wanted to update you on my progress.As per our last conversation, I started the program on Sept 23, 2003, when I was sure that I was not pregnant. My youngest is still nursing and, as I had predicted, did not seem to mind the SF722. My muscle and joint pain is very much improved, I have a lot more energy, and I've probably lost about 20 pounds. ....Thank you so much for your help.
Wanda H., Texas
I am 55 years
old. Since 1978, that is 28 years, I've suffered from pain in my right arm, wrist, hand and shoulder. I have not been able to sleep
on my right side at night.
Well now, one week later, I can report a dramatic improvement. The diet is somewhat boring. However, my moods are much elevated and have stabilized. I don't recall a single mood swing during the past several days. I get a good night's sleep now. I can even sleep on my right side for several hours at a time. When I wake up in the morning I feel actually refreshed. There's a noticeable improvement with my headaches, probably 60%. My outlook on life has much improved. I'm more fun to be around.
Renee D., Northern California
I have dropped approximately 12 pounds since starting your 4 week program and seemingly doing well. I am also applying the "modified"
Atkins diet per my GP.
I'm 73 years old. Since about 1994 I have suffered from chronic and continuous diarrhea. I went from doctor to doctor. There was no agreement on the diagnosis. Because of the diarrhea I kept losing weight, a total of 40 lbs.
I was chronically fatigued, suffered from nearly constant headaches, neck and back pain. Finally I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. In 2001 I underwent an operation. A section of my small intestine was removed. Initially I appeared to do better. Within two months the diarrhea reappeared along with all the other symptoms.
I have been all kinds of medications, including antibiotics, to no avail. Often I was so weak that I had to be in a wheelchair. Upon the repeated urging of a longtime friend who has been a patient of Dr. Z's for many years, I finally made an appointment with Dr. Z. After a thorough examination Dr. Z put me on a very limited diet and a number of supplements to combat digestive insufficiency, candida and hypoglycemia.
To my amazement, within 48 hours my diarrhea was gone. Seven weeks later my diarrhea still gone! Most of my pain is gone, I have more energy, I feel more alert. Above all, I have hope to get well again.Thank you so much, Dr. Z
Marilyn, Penn Valley, Ca
in to tell you I started the protocol on Friday the 30th, this is one
week now. Whether the diet or the supplements, I
haven't had a hypoglycemic episode since. I'm drinking the
medipro in the morning and late afternoon as a snack. I seem to be doing
good so far.
It is interesting
that I have had few sugar cravings. Just want to eat something
crunchy like the nuts.
Hi Dr. Z
days are up.
I will continue using medipro and adding food groups into my diet.

Tom B, Bakersfield, Ca
For more than 20 years I have suffered from food allergies, digestive problems and relentless diarrhea. Over the course of the past years I could eat less and less foods. I became depressed, had no life energy, felt tired and listless all the time, suffered recurring headaches. I craved food, especially sugar and other carbohydrates. My life seemed to be slipping away. I lost 35 pounds.In my despair I went on a six month "candida diet". Of course I was not very strict. Nothing changed, things actually became worse.Upon the recommendation of my hairdresser I went to see Dr. Z. Dr. Z made a rather radical diet and lifestyle change proposal that was to last for four weeks. I thought to myself: "I can do anything for four weeks". I took his recommended supplements, ate differently, cut out all carbohydrates, drank only bottled water...Within one month I felt a dramatic improvement. After eight weeks I had my life again. I truly felt like myself again .I can eat pretty much anything now. I have tons of energy. Instead of being depressed, I am "up" and optimistic. I can focus on my life now .Thank yo so much.

I have finished
the 4 week express kit and feel remarkably better. Here are some

Excellent website. I am not surprised at my "diagnosis". Just only surprised at how your web site did in 10 minutes what 11 doctors could not do in 3 years.
After years of problems and a fleet of doctors I was finally diagnosed with Hypoglycemia, Systemic Candida, & Chronic Epstein Barre. I went misdiagnosed for years & every new Doctor would insist on doing an HIV test & when the results were negative would simply say that they did nott know what was wrong, but agreed there was something. My immune system was completely disabled, chronic reoccurring infections sick with colds, flues, & stomach bugs that seemed to just rotate through my body but never go away, chronic bladder infections, rectal bleeding, constipation for 12+ days at a time, biweekly yeast infections, even a staph infection of the skin. About four years ago I was suffering from some serious health problems. Went from Doctor to doctor who insisted there was a definite problem, but after all tests came back negative they would give up. I was actually tested for HIV 7 x in 18 months always at a new doctor's request despite my low risk classification. This was always the last resort to blame my obvious immune deficiency on something. ( I was also tested for other less know immune disorders always negative.) I finally found a doctor with a different approach to medicine. He sat spoke to me asked lots of strange, what seemed unrelated questions & then sent for three Blood Tests. To my surprise one week later all three tests came back positive. I underwent treatment & have found a new world of improved health.
Now I am starting to see a decline in health, stumbled across the web site below & took the free health evaluation. To my surprise this site "diagnosed" me with three conditions, two of which I already knew I had. (Not only that it gives a complete description of each disorder & other problems it may cause (i.e. systemic candida causes migraines, endometriosis & cysts three things that I suffer from.) I once got really drunk off of half a drink thats not drunk but a hypoglycemic episode interesting! This website did in 10 minutes what eleven doctors could not do in three years.
You may not be sick, but are there little annoying things that are bothering you? Check it out! Its worth the 10 minutes!
Athena J., Pembroke, Ma
After five days on Dr. Z's protocol...
hasn't been as bad as I thought ... the first 3 or 4 days were the hardest
Just wanted to check in and let you know how I am doing on your Candida/Four Week Health Express protocol.I just finished up my second week and am starting my third week today.
I still had some fatigue after finishing my menstrual period this past weekend. That caused me some concern. I knew fatigue could be a possible side-effect. But that lasted only 2 or 3 days after my period ended, and then my energy started to emerge. I had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday ... lots of energy, very little mucus ... it felt so good. Like I had said in one of my earlier reports, May is usually my worse month for allergies. I usually have to go on Prednisone (since nothing else helped). This year, I am amazed that I am not experiencing this. The only symptoms I am experiencing seems to be 'reversal symptoms' ... being able to cough up old mucus in my chest, minimal allergy symptoms, minimal gas, better digestion, and more energy.
I have lost another 1 1/2 - 2 pounds. I've become a little better at drinking water, but still need to improve on that. I have cut down on overeating with the nuts, but I still have moments that I overdo (I think it's when I experience a craving or tiredness ... otherwise I am fine).
I finished the Pleo 3X suppositories on day 10, and will start the Lactobacillus Sporogenes after completing the 3rd week.
I was just wondering what happens after the fourth week. I know that I can start incorporating foods slowly, but do you have any other specific guidelines? Also, from what I have read off your web site, am I correct in my understanding that I need to stay on the SF 722 and the Lactobacillus Sporogenes indefinitely? The reason I am asking is because I want to make sure that I don't run out of the supplements that I will need.
I saw my update report in your latest newsletter. I hope that it may help to encourage others, who are suffering with this condition, to try your candida support program. Thank you, for honoring my request of leaving out my last name and location.
Until next week,
My name is
Ray F. and I spoke with you about 6 weeks ago regarding my Candida.
I did your recommended protocol and have gotten excellent results.
In the meantime, my stomach gaseousness and cramping on the left side
has improved about 80%. That was my primary symptom.

Just a thank you (with a little history), I wanted to thank you for your products and information you have made available to the public. Not only do you provide good details, you have also made yourself available as a physician.
Such a rare quality to see such personal responses from the actual person! I started some of your product blends approximately 3 weeks ago....due to some strange health concerns, I went searching for something to assist my own practices. I was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 at the age of 2.

and thank you again,
I am 76 years
old! Before I saw Dr. Z I suffered for many years from frequent asthma
attacks. These attacks occurred often daily, especially when
I was under stress or if I ate the "wrong foods".
I also suffered
from many digestive problems such as nausea, constipation, bloating,
heart burn. Nervousness, depression, and constant serious fatigue were my constant companions. I had daily headaches, chronic sinus problems,
night sweats. I also suffered from compulsive eating and food cravings, water retention and excess weight. I further had chronic
and long standing insomnia. Dr. Z placed
me on a hypoglycemia/candida diet, gave me recommended supplements
for digestive and thyroid support, gave me chiropractic care and prescribed orthotics for my feet. My asthma
disappeared nearly instantaneously.
I have not been well for more than a year. I suffered from uncontrollable mood swings and severe and constant fatigue. My headaches were frequent and debilitating, and kept me from functioning. My neck was really stiff and very tender. I also suffered from frequent brain fog, heart palpitations, primarily when lying in bed at night. I also had severe bloating and frequent diarrhea attacks. I was craving sweets and spicy foods. I also suffered from frequent urination: I had to be up at least once at night, often more. I tried different doctors, but there was no real improvement. During the month before I went to see Dr. Z I had what appeared to be an infection in my right ear. I couldn't hear in that ear. No matter what I did this condition did not clear up. Within one month on Dr. Z's protocol most of my symptoms have disappeared. My energy is much improved, so is my mental status. Within two weeks my hearing was 100% restored. My digestive stress is resolved, I have no mood swings as long as I stay on the high protein diet. My hair feels thicker, its texture appears stronger. I have had no heart palpitations at all. My neck feels free and wonderful. I feel like a new person. Thank you!
For several years now I've been under extreme amount of emotional stress. In addition, I've suffered from digestive problems, anxiety, anger, and irritability, fatigue, restlessness, lots of arthritis pain, hip pain, poor concentration, and excessive weight. I also had considerable swelling and pain in my right knee stemming from an automobile accident. Several months ago my right hand was shredded by a dog. I underwent surgery. Since then I have had loss of mobility, swelling, and pain in my right hand and arm. After just two weeks on your protocol and several low level laser treatments most of my pain is gone. I lost 6 ½ pounds, I have lots of energy, my mood swings are much improved. My hip pain is gone, and my right knee swelling is much improved. It appears that I can handle external stress much more easily. I feel more like myself again.
I had been suffering for 10 years on and off with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and osteonecrosis of my jaw (chronic low grade infection that was destroying my jaw bone). Over the span of my illness I gained 70 pounds. I was constantly hungry, craving carbohydrates. Since I was 10 years old I've been acutely aware of being hungry all of the time, even after a full meal. I was on anti-depressants for five years because I suffered from short term memory problems, chronic pain, and anxiety. Dr. Z placed me on his strict hypoglycemia/candida/digestion regimen. After one week of feeling terrible and weak I started to feel better. I experienced for the first time in my life that I was off the carbo hunger roller coaster, and that I was in control of what I was eating. I lost 33 pounds in 3.5 months. My fibromyalgia has improved 80 per cent. I am going off my anti-depressants, and I am doing fine. My outlook on my life has improved substantially. This is a diet I want to stay on forever.
Lisa W. Chico, California
I just wanted to write to thank you for curing my chronic heartburn and indigestion that I have suffered with for over 25 years. Going on your hypoglycemia/candida/digestion plan has been the best thing I've ever done for myself. Extra benefits that I have derived from this new eating plan combined with the supplements are a definite increase in energy and a loss of 35 pounds. Thank you again for all of your good advice.
Clyde S. Grass Valley, Ca
Our son Andrew is 12 years old. Andrew had had asthma and poor health from infancy. Then last year Andrew developed such a bad case of asthma that we had to take him to a nearby clinic. His blood oxygen level was so low that the doctor gave him two rounds of a very strong inhaler and was considering sending him to the emergency room. Andrew did improve and we were given a course of treatment to contain the asthma for the future, which included cortisone type inhalers. We really didn't want Andrew to be dependent on these heavy duty chemicals and so we came to Dr. Z, who had been highly recommended to us by a friend. We discovered that Andrew was hypoglycemic, and that many of his allergies and poor stamina and weepiness could be caused by the hypoglycemia. After just two weeks on Dr. Z's program, Andrew was tremendously improved and we were thrilled. During the last two months, Andrew has used his inhaler only once and he has gained ten pounds and is noticeably more robust. His energy levels have evened out and he is doing better in school. Thank you, Dr. Z. .

Thank you so much for being there for me. After suffering from middle back pain for over 10 years, frequent mood swings, mental fog and low energy, joint pain, allergies and bloat, I have finally found the solution! Your program has really made the difference. I feel better than I have in years!
Mark O. Camptonville, Ca
I would like to thank you for introducing me to a dietary method of healing my skin rash and allergies. When I came to you, my body was in a very depleted condition. I had a skin rash all over my body, and I had severe allergies to many foods and various pollens and chemicals. After five years of suffering under the care of three different dermatologists, my condition was worse than ever. All three of them used the same approach: various forms of steroids to treat the symptoms, but no treatment of the causes. You placed me on a high protein/ Candida diet for a total of four weeks. In addition, you gave me vitamin and nutritional supplements for my body's particular needs. Within three weeks after starting the diet, my skin rash was completely gone. Thanks again for all you've done to help me. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others who have chronic health problems.

How wonderful it is to wake up feeling well. How wonderful it is to have energy again - to experience a whole day without feeling exhausted!! In the early months of 1996, I had three bouts of a virus which left me totally worn out. My physician said I would eventually get over it. Many months later, I learned that I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I would fall into bed exhausted after doing minimal housework, going into town shopping, having dinner out with friends, or even talking on the telephone!I read many articles and references about CFS - and I tried several so-called cures - nothing helped my exhaustion. Dr. Z recommended supplements and a diet, which I have religiously followed. After just 3 weeks, I was feeling so much better. After 6 weeks I did not just feel good - I felt great.
