Dr. Kimberly Azelton’s Advice:
Don’t give up hope no matter what. You know you may have given up on yourself for whatever you’re struggling with or whatever is going on. But don’t give up hope. When there’s a will there’s a way for the instant you lose your will, you might have lost your way.

Hello! I wanted to say what a blessing Dr Kimberly Azelton MD has been for me. Beginning back in September 2021 I participated in a Lifestyle Program called Renove’ which was led by our pastor Phil Mills and Dr Kim. It was in this program where I learned so much about how food can be used for healing our bodies. I was diabetic, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol /triglycerides. Through this 6 weeks program we were tested through bloodwork to see the progress. I’m happy to say I am no longer diabetic, no more blood pressure or cholesterol meds are needed and I’ve lost about 25 lbs.
I’ve learned how to cook very differently but very deliciously without any animal products.
I then hired Dr Kim as my primary physician. She has a very untraditional approach to health care…treating every aspect of who we are as people, body mind and spirit. Her approach uses food as medicine to heal many diseases and issues we suffer from.
For 13 years I had been on opioids for back pain. I suffered from depression unknowingly caused by the opioids. I was blessed to participate in a program for depression and anxiety with Dr Kim and her team. It was through this program which included more intense focus on eating foods that targeted my back pain and depression. I also increased my activity to boost the effects of the foods I was eating. Since I was more active and eating the target foods, I was noticed my back pain was better. So after I finished the program I asked Dr Kim if I could work with her to get off the opioids. So we began the weaning process. I’m happy to report to you that as of today 1/23/23, I’ve been off the opioids since early November and amazingly my back pain is gone!!!! The opioids were causing my body to create more opioid receptors which caused my back pain to increase. While I was very determined to get off the drugs, it was through the care and prayers I received from Dr Kim and her team. I thank God everyday for the vision of those who have walked with me on my journey.
