I have been taking prescription medicines for more than 20 years. I am extremely happy to eliminate it. It could not have been possible without you. I cannot say thank you enough for this. But this is a start. This is the best thing that has happened in many, many years. Thank you for your invaluable mentoring these past few months. I’ve had fun getting to know Dr. Chellam better and I’ve learned so much about food and health from talking with her. Her passion to educate about benefits of lifestyle changes has been terrific. Dr. Chellam is amazing at what she does! S.P.

Finding meaning in my life D.M.
I have been looking for a Functional Medicine physician for years. One who would be proactive in working with me to obtain optimal health without the use of medical drugs. I found such a physician in Dr. Nisha Chellam and participated in her Wellness Program. Dr. Chellam’s Wellness Program provided me with expert health guidance and mentoring through informative workshops and classes including educational manuals and videos. In addition, medical blood work and saliva tests were conducted to determine where I was deficient and what supplements and lifestyle changes were needed to maximize my health. Coaching was also available for a nine week diet that included an integrative detox system.
Prior to discovering Dr. Chellam’s Wellness Program I suffered from a nerve issue in my neck which lead to debilitating headaches. My quality of life went from a 9.5 out of 10 to a 1 in a four month period. After seeing many medical specialists, tests, medications and hospitalization my condition worsened. I discovered, on my own, that my issue could not be cured with nerve blocks, medications, of other medical procedures. Physical therapy was needed to improve body posture to alleviate pressure on nerves in my neck. This is where the physical fitness portion of Dr. Chellam’s Wellness Program, Interactive Wellness with Leesa Hansknecht, helped me tremendously by preventing any setbacks with my neck and improving other physical issues. Leesa has a great staff and a wealth of knowledge on body mechanics, overall physical fitness and does a great job of motivating you. It was determined that Pilates would also be beneficial for me and Debbie Sawicki is a great instructor who inspired me.
My highest possible recommendation for Dr. Nisha Chellam’s Wellness Program including Interactive Wellness Life Coaching with Leesa Hansknecht at the Verdurous Me Interactive Wellness Center. If you listen and are willing to work these professionals can turn your life around or help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Mark J.

Oil talk was very useful and interesting! D.C.
Big time! I really enjoy you program! Hope that I can enjoy some of your program later.
Wish you the best! T.S
The care and responsiveness my wife and I have received from you has been unlike any care we have ever received from a physician. You are attentive, you listen and respond by email or texts to any questions we have had in a more than timely manner. The program is well planned, based in science and the support in the form of written material and group classes has been tremendous. Your competence is unquestionable. For that we are grateful to have you in our lives.
The classes were well organized and helpful. I appreciated the class on how to read out lab results. The science was way over my head but I gained a better understanding of what you were quantifying. I am thankful that you can understand all of what was being measured. I have shared my “before” and “after” detox results with other health care providers. They were impressed not only in my progress but with the scope and magnitude of what you were measuring. I have never seen such thoroughness. Anonymous
My blood sugar has gone from a dangerous high of 9.9 (A1C) to a better 7.5 (A1C) and I haven’t even completed the detox. Without dieting or extreme exercise, I have released almost 25 pounds and I have given away all my larger clothes because I am confident I will never need them again.
I truly believe Dr. Chellam and her wellness program are saving my life. Evelyn T.
