"I am Joanne's sister and I have your email address because Jo shared some of your correspondence with me. It has been 8 weeks since we lost her and she is still on my mind every day - a very special person.

I wanted to say thank you to you for all you did for her. I was so saddened by some of her experiences with medical professionals during the two years she was struggling with this awful disease, but so often she told me how much she could tell that you really cared, wanted her to be healthy, wanted to help - and I know that feeling. She and I spent a lot of time together in the last three months, as I am now living in Palm Springs. I took her to a lot of her infusions and we had time to chat in general - she said our talking about everyday things helped her not focus so much on health issues.

If can ever help you - maybe by telling someone senior to you how wonderful you were to a patient who really needed that - just let me know!

Thank you, thank you" - Cindy

"Thank you for all you do to facilitate lifestyle medicine into daily practice and health. You have guided me with good information, smart assessments, and maintaining good health over these past 4 years: going off hormonal contraceptives, healing my gut through allergen testing and diet modification, anti-inflammatory supplements to eliminate the beginnings of rheumatoid arthritis, exercise and sunlight - I feel really good!

I had an appointment with my PCP yesterday for the first time in years. As she discontinued various old meds off my chart, deleting supposed auto-immune diagnoses, I updated her on how much better I felt in every system. She ran labs - all of which look beautifully healthy. She was really impressed!

I just want to thank you again for what you’re doing to improve the lives and overall health of many people. It’s working!"


"After a strong referral by several friends, I began working with Debbie Judd several years ago. Under her care, I was able to regain control over hormone issues that were plaguing me and affecting my sleep to the point that I wasn’t sure I would be able to continue my career. I have her and her wonderful staff to thank for the support and guidance that I needed to not only keep working but to feel better and more energized every day. Debbie not only takes all the time and care to help her patients navigate complex metabolic issues, but she has also most recently been incredibly understanding and helpful in addressing patient needs specific to Covid during this challenging time. Thanks so much to Debbie and to all the Staff at the Metabolic Institute!"


I am writing to thank the Metabolic Institute Team that alerted us to health issues that most Doctor offices would have brushed under the table.  Your team of dedicated professionals actually answer the phone and care about the patients you serve.  You are to be commended for being a cut above todays medical community.  YOU ALL TRULY CARE and it shows.  Thank you for saving us!!!

I absolutely love Debbie and Buffy! They have been nothing but helpful to me, answered my questions, and have guided me in a direction that no one else has given me as an option. I am so thankful for everyone that works here!"

Cleanse Testimonials

“To my friends at the Metabolic Institute: Thank You!  Your cleanse program was an eye opener to a whole new world and lifestyle of eating.  Before I did the cleanse, I was actually scared to try this.  All the rumors about getting ill, feeling nauseous, and having the mindset that this would be difficult or hard was some of the many reasons I was skeptical about doing a cleanse.  You have made a believer out of me through your program.  After doing the cleanse I feel lighter, more energetic, and never experienced any of the fears that kept me from doing a Cleanse in the first place.  I will recommend your program to all my friends and family members!  I have changed my eating habits and I’m aware of the foods that make me feel great, those that make me feel heavy and bloated and I now know the difference to healthy eating and a healthful lifestyle. Cleansed and Loving It!” – Eileen Barbieri
