When I first saw the ad for what I thought was yet another worthless book used to make money and not cure anything, I was skeptical. I read the reviews and although they sounded good they were too good to possibly be true. The offer had a iron-clad money back guarantee so after some days I took the chance. Wow! Was I ever surprised? I began reading and implementing the advice by Dr. Merritt. The more I studied her book's advice the more I realized how much sense it made as a whole. Fast forward 5 weeks, my BP is stable around 118/69, 128/73 and even though the numbers keep changing within this bracket I have been able to cut back on my BP meds and even skip them on some days. As time goes on I am confident BP pills will be a thing of the past. As a Veteran, my meds are very inexpensive but it is the idea of taking BPmeds that is so worrisome. Spend the small fee to get the book, all you have to lose is your BP meds and you will gain so much more, plus you will lose weight, have more energy and EAT BETTER. I am back to eating BACON, STEAKS AND PORK CHOPS. Just do it!

I found Merritt Wellness Center by ordering Marlene Merritt's book on blood pressure. I was able to cut my medication back to almost none at all in a very short time. I made an appointment by telephone with her and have been helped considerably. She is very knowledgeable, honest, and sincere. I was already taking some of the Standard Process vitamins, protein shake, and 21 day cleanse that she offers. They are all great products and all natural. Some of my family members have also been helped by Merritt Wellness Center, and I would highly recommend their help to anyone.

Dr Merritt and her team are awesome! I came to see her for infertility, we have been trying for 3 years. After 1 set of blood work, she immediately identified several nutritional deficiency that I have and she made suggestions on how to replenish them via nutrition and supplements. I also did the cleanse which helped me feel better overall. After a couple months following her suggestions we found out that we are pregnant! Now I really believe that food is your medicine.

I appreciate Dr. Merritt's encouragement and knowledge. Since first meeting with her last June, I have lost 20 pounds and have learned how to make healthier choices (even though I don't always make them). I also did the Standard Process cleanse in October and I felt great! My feet quit hurting and I was much more focused and energized. I'm looking forward to doing it again in a couple of weeks.

I don't know how many times I have said, "Thank you! Finally!!!" I have had terrible IBS since I was a child. I have been to every type of doctor, healer, psychiatrist, you name it. I am now 41 and can say for the FIRST time in my life that I feel relief ALL the time. Thank you Will!!!!
Review by BigWaduHek1 year ago
The Merritt Wellness Center is made up of the most caring doctors I've ever met. I have several layers of ongoing medical issues and they carefully and systematically figured out what is wrong after I'd been to 15 other doctors who didn't have a clue. Their caring and attentiveness is displayed in our interactions, and they are always available for questions or concerns. With my ongoing present day issues, they are guiding me every step of the way. Marlene Merritt is always there to encourage me to stay on the course and Will Mitchell works his hardest to figure out the root cause of what is happening, whereas other doctors will give you a pill to mask symptoms. I truly am impressed with the care I've been receiving. Now that I have a diagnosis, the hard part of treatment begins...

Will Mitchell is a joke. He lies to elderly patients. He tells them that if they follow the bredeson protocol that their Alzheimer's can be reversed. Of course it cannot. He takes their money and laughs all the way to the bank. What a disgusting individual.

Dr. Merritt has been an answer to prayer. Two years ago I took amoxycillin for a dental issue (December 2015). Within 24 hours I had sharp pains that went from my chest to my back. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought I was having a heart attack. I wound up stopping the antibiotic after 3 days because it was wreaking havoc on my body. Almost immediately, I had the worst heartburn and gerds, was breaking out in hives nightly, as well as having my eyes and/or lips puff up suddenly. Most notable, despite the other things being quite severe, my period stopped. Subsequently, I started consuming apple cider vinegar and maple syrup in water which stopped the heart burn and gerds. I took Benadryl almost daily for at least 6 months to overcome the hives and allergies. I still have terrible allergies, but the sudden puffing up of my eyes and lips has stopped. For the last year I had signs of hypoglycemia and diabetes and felt horrible. I went to see Dr. Marlene Merritt (November 2017) who said she could have me feeling better in 2 days. She recommended several things but most importantly to reduce my carb intake to no more than 60 grams per day (excluding good carbs such as veggies) and increase healthy fats. I started immediately. She was right! Two days later I felt a thousand times better and shockingly, within 3 weeks I started my period and have had a second one all within 2 months. I am almost 52. Despite the inconvenience of a period, I am thrilled that with this simple change, my hormones are kicking in, my symptoms of pre diabetes are gone. It is stunning just how important a healthy diet is and the impact a poor diet can have on the aging process. I have been to several doctors who didn't really have specific answers to my issues. I am thrilled with finding Dr. Merritt. She has been an answer to prayer.

Merritt Wellness gave me the answers no one else could and helped me restore my daughter's health. Their knowledge and expertise also saved her from possible grave harm. I went to the doctor for over a year for my young daughter's eczema...it was a very small spot on her face in the beginning, but the nice pediatrician wrote a prescription immediately. It took two months for insurance to approve the script due to the very high cost, over which time the eczema spread significantly. Upon beginning to use the cream, the condition only worsened. When I called the doctor's office and asked for help, saying it had spread to her torso, I was assured that I could put the cream over every affected area and use it until the condition went away. I looked at my then 4 year old, and before I slathered her with more cream that didn't help in the first place, I decided to look the medicine up on the internet. To my horror, it had an FDA black box warning saying that it should be used only as a last resort, only on small areas, and used only for a limited time because it was associated with childhood cancer. Eczema... an auto-immune response...thus this "medicine" worked by suppressing the immune system. When I gently asked the pediatrician about this being given as the "first resort," she replied simply with, 'Well, that's what the dermatologist would have given you." I knew they had no answers, and I wanted to not only treat the symptom, but the root cause, and wanted to skip the cancer side-effect!
After visiting Merritt Wellness and seeing Dr. Mitchell, we had hope and a plan of action. Within 30 days of implementing his wisdom, there was dramatic improvement. She is now almost 9 and has been eczema-free for several years. I was desperate and felt powerless when I first brought her in. MWC and Dr. Mitchell gave me the answers and knowledge to take control of my daughter's symptoms by addressing the underlying causes and helping her back to genuine HEALTH. For me, MWC was and is a lifesaver as we have continued as a family to pursue flourishing health and wellness with their amazing knowledge and invaluable help. Thank you, MWC!

Review by AbdoolRasheed1 year ago
I have just reviewed my original hand-written notes, date 3/11/2010, when I first went in to see Dr. Marlene. How I got there was rather unusual. My daughter-in-law had been greatly helped by an Austin acupuncture clinic that dealt with infertility issues, and she suggested I call them to see if they took men for other reasons. I did! And they assured me that they only worked with women, but THEN they recommended Merritt Wellness Center. I went on their website, sent an email to Dr. Marlene, who SURPRISE!!!!!, called me personally and chatted over the phone. That sealed the deal.
My six presenting symptoms were dealt with seriously, but the serious work was really to address the underlying causes. I so remember returning home and telling my wife, Yvonne (also a patient for years) that for the first time I was really hopeful in my future healing.
I have now been a patient-friend of MWC for these years, and am so grateful for the personalized care and ongoing concern. My emails, when Dr. Merritt and Dr. Mitchell are out of country, are answered!
The six presenting symptoms? All are significantly improved, but over time. And many other issues took me to the Center. No over-night miracle; just organic, wholeness discipline (ah, those many supplements I keep chugging down every day!!!), and the personal interest confirm to me that my long-term wellness comes in good part because of MWC.
My most recent step was the Thermography exam, taken just this week. I await my appointment with Dr. Marlene for her reading and the next steps of integral healing.
I can't remember how many people we have suggested they visit the Center, but some of them have reviewed Merritt Wellness Center in TRUSTPILOT also.

It has only been 3+ weeks but I am already feeling MUCH better! I look forward to going through the whole program to see how I feel after. My health is now quickly changing for the better after many years of no improvement.

Dr. Merritt is a nutritionist that truly understands the relationship between diet, exercise and diabetes. Check her out on YouTube as that's where I first spotted her. We talk on a monthly basis and the knowledge gained is hard to put a price tag on. I'm a type 2 diabetic with current pre-diabetic fasting numbers. My A1C will be determined in January. Since taking her advice for 3 months, I'm now taking half my blood pressure meds and am off Metformin for T2 diabetes. My heartburn has been non-existent for the last 6 weeks and I was previously consuming antacids on a regular basis. She recommended certain blood tests and it was found that my vitamin D level was low, as well as homocysteine. It is now within range and that might be helping my pancreas produce more insulin, thus helping my morning fasting blood glucose numbers. I plan to continue communicating regularly with Dr. Merritt until I am off all prescription medicines. I feel great due to her recommended supplements and a diet of healthy fats/oils, organic vegetables, limited fruit and grass fed, free range meats. Lastly, I have lost 11 lbs comfortably with a goal of 11 more.

Thank you doc. Ernie

I have been going to Merritt off and on for 12 years now. I have terrible seasonal allergies which they have been able to remedy with acupuncture and herbs -- something that traditional western medicine wasn't able to do. Their staff is fantastic! The practitioners are well versed in their fields, and they actually listen to what's going on with you so they can get to the root of the problem. If you're sick of taking allergy medicine and all of the side effects that come along with them, I highly suggest checking out Merritt Wellness Center.

Drs. Mitchell and Merritt and their capable staff have made the care I've received SO personal. I appreciate their professionalism and expertise. With their guidance I've made great improvements in my health. I highly recommend them for health and wellness care. Love them!
Review by Mulham Jowett2 years ago
Four years ago I was in ICU being treated for Diabetic Ketoacidosis. I was diagnosed with LADA - Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults. Western medicine did not have much to offer me, except insulin, so I reached out to the Merritt Wellness Center and began seeing Dr. Mitchell. Over time, Dr. Mitchell was able to educate me in the road to healing through nutrition, supplements, and healthy lifestyle choices. He also was able to treat my menopause symptoms, without going on hormones In my last round of blood work, my A1C was in the normal range (not common for diabetics) and my family doctor stated that I was healthier than most of her non-diabetic patients. I will most likely have to be on insulin the rest of my life but I believe Dr. Mitchell has been the main reason for my recovery and the good health that I am experiencing today.
Review by Tveak2 years ago
Several years ago Merritt Wellness provided supplements, acupuncture and a diet plan to counter allergic reactions. It took about three months but it worked. I have not suffered from allergies since. I just completed a one hour consult with Dr Marlene during which she answered all my questions regarding the nutrition plan I am currently using. I have never had a more clear, simple explanation of how blood sugar works and the benefits of a low carb diet. I plan to continue using Merritt Wellness for all my wellness needs.

Review by Dnyanada2 years ago
I've had type two diabetes for over 15 year. It was getting worse every year...3 types of diabetic medication and two types of insulin (100 units a day with 5 injections daily). I revamped my lifestyle in the last 6 months.... I was getting better. I started following Dr. Merritt's recommendations outlined in her "Smart Blood Sugar" book. Now you can do years of your own research coupled with trial and error excercises ..... I did! After reading this book I realized everything and more that I searched for was covered in a very easy to read and follow presentation. I wear a Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor. This displays my blood glucose every 5 min since I put it on 6 months ago. My A1C dropped from 10.7 to 5.7. I stopped taking all my insulin and reduced my other diabetic medicine by over 40%. I also lost 22 pounds. I still have the same diabetes I've always had.....but my blood sugar is now completely under control! This really works!

I went to Dr. Merritt because I was having problems with poor sleep quality and low energy throughout the day. It had gotten pretty bad - I could barely peel myself out of bed in the morning, and just getting through the day was a struggle. I had been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea a few years earlier, so I thought that was the reason.
Dr. Merritt helped me see that there were other factors influence my sleep quality and energy levels. She helped me uncover aspects of my diet and lifestyle that were contributing to the problem. Dr. Merritt gave me a simple, easy-to-follow plan with clearly laid-out instructions of how to regain control of my sleep and my energy.
Within a week or two, I started noticing a significant change in my energy and sleep quality. I was able to start exercising again, and enjoying fun activities as well.
What Dr. Merritt has done for me has transformed my life. I finally know how to build a lifestyle which supports high energy and productivity. And best of all, I was able to improve my situation through nutrition and herbal supplements, instead of prescription medicines. I always prefer a natural solution when it exists.
I highly recommend Dr. Merritt to anyone who wants to get control of their health and vitality. What I appreciate most about Dr. Merritt is that she sits down with you and listens deeply to find the root cause, rather than treating the symptoms. That's something you just don't get with most doctors.
Review by Viicki2 years ago
After 7 years of dealing with all sorts of functional issues from Endocrine to GI and seeing every one of those specialists, sometimes multiple ones, I finally gave up on "traditional" medicine. I waited so long because I wanted to exhaust all options covered by insurance, but years later, I only got worse and worse and never got help. I finally earned some extra money to help pay my expenses to see Dr. Merritt. Within 12 weeks I saw results I had only dreamed of having. I still have a ways to go, but every week I get more and more back to normal. I have Dr. Merritt to thank. On top of it all, her staff is amazing and very responsive!

I have seen Dr. Marlene Merritt for many years. She has helped me and my family with many health issues ranging from the flu to chronic illnesses. Her holistic approach to healing, her blend of using many modalities for treatment, and her approachability are some of the many reason she is my #1 choice for my doctor. I have sent several people to Dr. Merritt who were exhausted with mainstream western medicine and they have all been grateful for her care.
