I Appreciate Her Knowledge!

I recently got hooked up with Michelle (Vitalady) to go over my lab work being 1 year post op.  She took the time to tell me what I was low/lacking and gave me a detailed list of the vitamins I need to stay on track.  I appreciated the fact that she was willing to go that extra mile for a stranger.  I then placed an order on her site because she has vitamins/minerals that no one else has.  That really helps me so much to continue on my gastric bypass journey.  What worried me the most was … [Read more...]

Michelle has been a Lifesaver!

Michelle (Vitalady) has been a life saver.  She always responds to emails personally, and she always has an idea (backed up by a TON of research) to help me get back on the right path.  She puts ethics before profit, and that is a huge testimony to her character.  As a new post-op, I was able to ask her questions that my doctors didn't have time or patience to answer (and didn't really know the answer to, anyway!).  I am honored to consider her a friend.

I had my surgery here in Illinois with the Barix Clinic, which has since closed up … [Read more...]


Vitalady Michelle, Vitalady, has always been there to answer my questions about anything dealing with proper vitamin/supplement protocol and specific lab tests as I have needed it over the years since my 12/8/03 RNY.  I am a person who also does my own research, but I found that she was always correct.  The important thing is that in our gastric bypass community, we know that Vitalady can be counted on when we are stymied about what we need to get proper results on our lab tests.  When … [Read more...]

Vitalady Really Cares!

Vitalady helped me figure out I'm distal when I shared my surgery report with her.  She has answered many of my questions over the years, if not personally, then by reading her responses to others in this group.  Vitalady really DOES care!  She is sharing, helping, and has made herself available to answer my important questions. Camellia … [Read more...]
