I have been fighting the effects of Lyme disease for quite some time and Dr. Clark‘s knowledge about the disease and help with treatment has been such a blessing to me and my daughter (who has also fought Lyme disease). Dr. Clark has always been very kind, willing to listen to any concerns and questions we have had along the way—and very knowledgeable about Lyme disease and it’s over all effects it on the body. I’ve been seeing her for quite some time and will continue to do so. I’m so thankful I found her!
How can I ever thank you for the positive impact you have had on my life. Together we have faced difficult situations and even when I was unable to communicate my needs clearly, you went out of your way to reach out to me and bring balance to my health. This has been a long road for me as I felt so disconnected from my world.
At the end of 2018 I felt a spiritual stirring inside of me that I needed to embark on a weight loss journey and I fought it with all my might but it was persistent just like you. I thought about the HCG protocol that you relentlessly talked to me about on my annual visits and I struggled with doing this program because it seemed so very restrictive and unforgiving. Upon doing some research on this protocol I found the HCG Chica podcast and listened to countless interviews with people just like me who had struggled with their weight all their lives and I knew I had found my tribe. This protocol seemed more doable. It only took 6 years of your support, devotion and compassion to push me through the door of what would be a life changing experience. Wow, Dr. Kelly I am sure that you wondered if I was ever going to turn that corner.
I embarked on my HCG journey on my birthday, February 20th 2019. There were a lot of highs and lows and so much that I discovered about myself. I realized that what I thought were cravings were actually hunger pains. I learned that I can keep weight off without starving to death and that I can still have treats in moderation. I observe how food affects me. Most important I learned that it is ok to make mistakes because that is a wonderful teacher. Being insulin resistant I think that only the HCG protocol would have let me shed the weight as quickly as I did. I am amazed that at my youthful(LOL) age of 61 and being insulin resistant I was able to shed 56 lbs in about a year while also taking a 6 month break. It has taken herculean efforts to achieve weight loss. I would often have clips of our conversation come back to me and I would say to myself: Dr. Kelly is right I need to do something to get this weight off. I have been through a myriad of diets through out my entire life but have never found one as effective as this protocol. Dr. Kelly , THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for opening this door wide and leaving it open even when I was reluctant to walk through it. God bless you.
I have a vivid memory of being 7 or 8 years old and one of my good friends told me about her favorite treat and I thought to myself that I did not have a favorite special treat and so I would adopt hers. She loved chocolate and so that became my favorite treat. I was slightly heavy but that did not really bother me. My father’s side of the family tends to be obese and I feel as if it has always been easy for me to put weight on and my parents were always putting me on a diet and I always felt deprived. I realized that treats filled a void for a lot of emotional turmoil I found myself in from an abusive school system , and growing up in a big impersonal city where I was exposed to disturbing realities that shaped my fears. What better way to feed suppress emotion but with chocolate!! Although in all fairness, the last few years weight lost seemed absolutely impossible.
What a journey I have been on and I thank God for putting you on my path to help me along this journey.
I hope this gives you a glimpse into a sliver of my life. There is so much I want to share with you but when I was in your office I really feared getting into that ugly unstoppable crying !!! because this has been such an emotional and difficult journey.
My son has been dragged to so many appointments, I couldn’t count, so when I told him that he was meeting with Dr. Beades for an extended appointment, he groaned. But after we arrived and Dr. Beades graciously explained to me that it was critical that my 15 year old son do all of the talking, he walked out of the appointment and told me that it was the best appointment he’s ever been to and felt as though Dr. Beades was his advocate for life. My son suffers from a life-long, chronic condition and Dr. Beades has the passion for wellness and healthcare that we should expect from ALL of our healthcare providers, but sadly, cannot. I would recommend Dr. Beades to anyone who has either chronic conditions or simply wants to know what is going on with their health, physically, mentally or physiologically.
I want to let you know how much I appreciate your nursing and support staff. You’ve assembled such a strong team. As regular patient, I so appreciate their professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile. They are a hard-working group.
My rather lengthy (5+ hour) Vitamin C infusion treatments mean I spend a good portion of my day with your staff, once every two weeks. The atmosphere you and your staff offer is unfailingly upbeat and positive – that’s so important for patients like me dealing with cancer or other serious conditions. I find your clinic radiates a terrific energy and I honestly look forward to my “infusion days.”
I also want to offer kudos for Dr Clark, who is part of my Naturopathic provider team. Her commitment, patient communication and approachability make her wonderful to work with.
No doubt the pandemic has created a new set of non-trivial headaches for you and the clinic. From a patient’s perspective, I think you and your staff are handling it all beautifully, and I thank you for that.
I found the pellet procedure to be less painful than a T shot. Overall, my levels feel much more stable. This was definitely an improvement over self-administering shots. The staff is the best. Love these people!
Dr. Beades is the first physician I’ve worked with who truly listened to me and took a holistic approach to treatment, ensuring we looked at all options – not just medicine – to improve my health. She went above and beyond to explain her recommendations and made me feel empowered as a patient. This not only helped the conditions I sought treatment for but helped me be a better advocate for myself when interacting with other clinicians.
There is burgeoning evidence that gut health and the microbiome have direct links to artery disease. Arterial disease is the main way we develop cardiovascular problems. When arterial plaque develops it can cause either a stroke or heart attack when it ruptures. The plaque may also become so extensive that it completely blocks the artery
Recently, I have been fielding a lot of questions about heavy metals in chocolate (often referred to as heavy toxins). Food safety can be a depressing topic. Rice has arsenic, most fish contain mercury (some more than others), shrimp have arsenic, leafy greens take up cadmium from the soil, about 30% of the tap water
Intravenous (IV) therapy is when a substance or drug is administered to a patient directly into the vein. Over the last 15 years, it has become very clear that IV treatments can help improve cold/flu symptoms, recovery, hangovers, and fatigue. Some intravenous treatments are approved by the FDA for the treatment of conditions such as

Niacin (vitamin B3) was one of the first drugs that was ever used to improve cholesterol levels. It was frequently used with good results before the introduction of statin medications. Now it is common for conventional medical doctors to tell patients to stop taking niacin and take statins instead. When Statins for High Cholesterol Are
