"Eating the American diet and not being educated, I developed diabetes over the years. Of course, in my mid-fifties, I developed coronary heart disease and never associated it with my lifestyle, even after the stent was put in my heart, I continued the same old lifestyle under doctor supervision, trying to follow their eating recommendations with exercise. I never saw much results following my doctor's advice; it only contributed to my diabetes and impotence. I was on all the usual methods that doctors use to treat diabetes. I started with a pill, then two pills, and then shots.
The diabetes never improved nor went away. This went on for years, and I would get my A1C down, but it would return high because eating too many carbs, sugar, and starch. I started getting neuropathy pain in my hands and feet, but I never knew what it was or ever heard of it until I did my own research. After fifty years of not understanding what to eat, I started staying away from sugar and did see the light.
At 69 years old, I found out the truth through the fine doctors on youtube, etc., that explained that there were really good doctors out there that could help you understand, educate you and prescribe Holistic practices. I had been a victim of the American Heart Association and the Diabetes Association by eating what they recommended. I searched for this type of doctor.
This is where Lita Senior Nurse-Practitioner, came into my life to help with the correct supplements and vitamins to heal and repair an abused body. I am now 72 and have seen Lita for two years.
I am very fortunate that I found her in my life as late as I did because she has helped me with medication, supplements, vitamins, and understanding. I went from a size 42 or larger with a big belly that all my family has had since my grandfather. I will be one of the few Sherman's without a fat belly and probably die without a belly. I could not believe how fast my midsection disappeared under her advice. The energy and circulation have returned to my body along with my spirit and will to live. Life is much better. I am active, play golf, and enjoy my life. Thank you, Lita."
"Mother's Day is special to me. I became a mom only because of Lita's help. I am forever grateful to have found you. I struggled for five years before meeting Lita. I had multiple miscarriages, an ectopic pregnancy, and so much heartaches. I listened and followed Lita's recommendations and treatments and within that year I was pregnant with a healthy baby boy. You have saved my family and made my world complete. You are my hero Lita."
"I came to Lita when I hit rock bottom. It was May of 2022 when my husband rushed me to the ER. Elevated blood pressure, abnormal blood sugar and cholesterol readings, and even extreme inflammation from head to toe! Literally! After a desperate consultation with Lita, I was on the way to make sure my labs were completed immediately. Fast forward seven months later, 25 pounds lighter, and a regular blood pressure reading (down 20 points) and normal lab reports, I feel energized and motivated to keep at it and not give up. Lita is a blessing and truly has a gift of calmly and thoroughly explaining how each regimen will heal from within. Lita has blessed my family and friends with her knowledge. I am so grateful to call Lita a friend and wellness practitioner! Thank you Lita, God bless you, and so much love to you! "

"Without Lita Senior this day pictured below never would have happened. I was referred to Lita for a prophylactic Covid telemedicine appointment not knowing that that day my parents would become very ill with Covid. She stayed with me through the entire journey and provided life-saving advice and therapies. Being a Registered Nurse, I appreciate her expertise and help in prescribing exactly what my parents needed. Despite an intense illness for my mother, 86 with underlying lung fibrosis and multiple co-morbidities, and my dad 88 years old, both survived and were reunited in their new home a few months later. I will be forever grateful to Lita and her immense heart for service that she provided to our family. I stayed healthy throughout the journey as I cared for them as well, thanks to her assistance and supplement/medication regimen. Thank you does not seem to be enough. We are truly blessed to have had Lita on our team."

"When I started this journey with Lita, I didn’t feel very healthy and felt tired and depressed most of the time. Now six months later, I feel like a younger, more energetic version of myself. Although I have to admit it’s been hard to be perfect in executing my plan, I am happier, sleep better, and have even lost 25 pounds! My journey continues, and I plan on making my 60’s great.Thank you, Lita, for your knowledge and support."
"Hello, my name is Sherell Hill. I’m a pastor, wife, and mother. Over the past several years, I felt like I was doing these jobs Ineffectively because of my health. I felt tired all the time, my allergies were outrageous, and I was overweight. I was using pain medications for migraines, body pains, and allergies to alleviate my discomfort. I’ve been searching for years to figure out what was wrong but was told I was just overweight. It wasn’t until 2021 that I wanted to get my health in check (after losing my grandmother). My Pastor introduced me to Lita Senior MSN, NP. She had previously helped him with his health issues as well. I was hesitant at first, but when you get tired of being sick and tired, you get desperate. I reached out to Lita on January 4th, 2022, and that’s when my health completely changed. I had several things wrong with me hormonally, in which I tried to get help from previous doctors with no avail. Lita was straightforward with me and explained to me what was plaguing me. I have been on my regimen for 3 months, and with hard work and patience, I’ve lost 30 pounds. It wasn’t until I felt the change of no longer needing daily naps, my husband noticed a difference in my temperament, and seeing the weight loss, that I felt it was worth the fight! I was worth the fight. Thank you to my husband for supporting me, my Pastor for introducing me to Lita, and thank you Lita, for helping me. My health will never be the same."
"I want to thank you, Lita and your staff for all your help!! I am well because of you and your expertise. I am so grateful. I'm forever grateful!!"
"I am grateful for Angelita's knowledge; she has been a Godsend. I was on a path of self-destruction, but after my first visit with her, I felt encouraged to make drastic changes in my life. Once we started working on the inside to heal my body, I started to feel so much better. I am not done yet, but here is a little preview of how my life is changing on the outside. Thank you Lita! May God continue to fill you with wisdom and knowledge to help others. xoxo "
"Lita has been a God-sent person in my life. She has helped direct me in so many ways to refocus on my health and encourage me along the way. Her guidance and wisdom have already helped me through many challenges and I can’t wait to see how far I have come by next year. I’m so thankful to have her with me on this journey in my life. I recommend her to all of my family and friends."
"Where can I start? I am generally quite a skeptic and believe folks are often inundated with overstated claims of medical and wellness benefits from diets, workout programs and supplements. Well, I feel like it's impossible to overstate the potential of what Lita does. Lethargy and fatigue, stomach and digestion issues, joint pain, sleeping problems, waning sexual performance, consistent weight gain over a decade, poor attitude and cloudiness, all significantly and positively impacted with Lita's assistance. I feel like a brand new person."
"When I came to Lita in February of 2020, I was in the midst of one of the worst health crisis I had been in. My workouts had been drastically diminished, I was plagued with constant abdominal pain and issues, and my once active lifestyle had become nonexistent. I was unable to keep up with the demands of my job in the entertainment industry and the physical and mental tolls it took on my body. Since then, Lita has tackled my health issues one step at a time, and treated my body as a whole not just mitigate my symptoms and throw me on a bunch of meds with their own aide effects. We’ve been able to stabilize my hormones, my thyroid, and have drastically reduced the amount of chronic inflammation I deal with on a daily basis. We have a clear plan of action that allows me to go at my own pace as I regain my quality of life. It may not be perfect but I have more good days than bad. I’ve learned there’s no magic bullet or get fit quick scheme when it comes to feeling my best, and that shortcuts often just lead to set backs. Health is a daily battle and choice for me. And I feel so much stronger with Lita in my corner."
"I came to Lita about 2 months ago desperate for help. I normally would never publicly speak about something so personal but I believe postpartum healing FULLY and PROPERLY is important. I also believe what was happening to me is viewed as normal in the healthcare world but many women are left in the dark by their healthcare providers. I have been breastfeeding my daughter for a little over 2 years. I have always planned and felt in my heart to let her wean when she’s ready. However, postpartum my hormones changed and I developed chronic vaginal bacterial infections MONTHLY to which my Dr would just tell me to A. Stop nursing and they would go away and B. Refill my antibiotic prescription. I didn’t want to stop nursing. My daughter wasn’t ready to be done nor was I. But my infections were a nightmare to deal with and I just felt like I had no other choice but to continue on antibiotics each month to try and control the symptoms. Until I found Lita through a friend. For the first time in a long time I felt heard. I felt HOPE. Finally. Lita found the ROOT cause of my monthly vaginal problem. She didn’t just prescribe me a drug to put a bandaid on it temporarily, nor did she tell me to wean my baby. She respected my beliefs and desires. Because of the regimen Lita has me on I have been free of an infection for almost 2 months! I could not be happier and relieved! In sharing my story I hope that it helps other women not feel alone as I did. I hope it brings hope to many struggling with advice their healthcare providers are giving them that in their hearts they don’t agree with. LISTEN to your gut - keep searching for answers, and find someone who will LISTEN to YOU. Thank you Lita for listening and for helping me feel confident that my body is able heal and be healthy."
"I wanted to thank you you the thoughtful, useful Christmas presents. Your personal, caring touch is one reason I love being your patient."
I always appreciate you and your kind heart. You are prompt and caring and it makes a difference. I really feel like what you and Lita do for me make a big difference in life and you are both so in my heart this holiday season. Enjoy the holidays and I hope you get to have some fun as well.
You look great!” “You lost weight!” “You look younger!” These are the typical comments I receive from family and friends. Very nice compliments but more importantly, for the first time in years, I feel good, physically and mentally.
I am very grateful for my initial consultation with Lita Senior as it was riveting, enlightening and life-altering and more importantly, lifesaving. Lita educated me about the impact of my symptoms, medications, inflammation and the effects my lifestyle had negatively impacted my health. During our conversation, it was also apparent she has a deep passion to help her clients have optimal health and wellbeing. I was immediately at ease and felt very comfortable to share my confidences.
For several years I was overweight, tired, stressed and depressed. Let me give you a brief description of my health before my life-altering meeting with Lita.
I am of a particular age and am married, work full time, have two sons and 87-year-old mom suffering from Alzheimer’s. Thus, many responsibilities and obligations. I found myself taking care of everyone except myself. I was functioning on “automatic pilot” and slowly burning out. I felt sluggish, suffered from lack of sleep, zero sex drive and high blood pressure. I did not know until Lita had me do wellness lab work, that I was pre-diabetic and had a malfunctioning thyroid. I thought I ate somewhat healthy meals but with Lita realized I could do a lot better, especially by eliminating carbs and sugar and learning about how inflammation and toxins infect our bodies.
Previously, I addressed my health concerns with my (Kaiser) internal medical doctor who did not acknowledge my concerns and simply prescribed medication and advised me to exercise 30 minutes a day. This is where the life-altering difference is between Lita and my doctor illuminated. My doctor treated the symptoms with medication, whereas, Lita delved into my whole-being by taking into account physical and mental factors rather than just the symptom of my ailments.
Lita’s Medical Wellness Center’s program has drastically improved my well-being and life expectancy. The most significant impact I experienced with Lita was my mental breakthrough and wellness edification which unleashed the hold I had to live my best life.
I have been a patient of Lita’s for a few years now, and I have never been healthier in my life. My quality of life and well-being has improved tremendously, wholly resultant from Lita’s care, guidance, and treatments.
When I came to Lita, I was a physical mess! My list of ailments is too big to include here. However, through her programs and treatments, she has systematically dialed me into the point where my conditioning and lab work would rival that of any man in his forties. I’m in my seventies and all who know me say I neither look nor act like I’m in my seventies. I actually learned to snowboard and ski, “in my seventies “. Heck, I couldn’t have done that in my fifties!
A major attraction for me for Lita’s practice is the fact that everything she does is scientifically based and verified. There’s never any “guessing”. Whenever a treatment is started or modified, it is always appropriately evaluated with lab work to verify it’s effectiveness. Never anecdotal treatments. Everything is fact-based. I wholeheartedly recommend Lita and her health care program to anyone who wants to improve life itself.
Hello Everyone, my name is Frank Smith; I’m a lifelong client of Lita’s. I say lifelong client because when I met Lita I was in dire straights and she helped me get myself back together. You see I’m a 53-year-old type 2 diabetic who was struggling through a debilitating back injury when I met Lita. I’ve always been in fairly good shape, but when I was diagnosed with diabetes and hurt my back, I kind of let myself go. It’s weird when you get hurt and can’t do the job that you love any longer. I got depressed big time! I was following along with the plan my medical doctors laid out for me. I was taking tons of insulin to control my blood sugar and was struggling with other assorted health issues I thought were unrelated to my condition and diet; boy was I wrong. I met Lita through my best friend Dennis, as a referral to see if she could help me get on track. All I can say is if your following a treatment plan, any treatment plan, that is based on conventional medicine, it’s like your pushing a big rock up a hill all the time. You get up in the morning, follow your doctors advise and plan, only to be disappointed with the results in the end. You spend all day pushing that imaginary rock up the hill, only to go to sleep at night and find that thing at the bottom of the hill the next day, it was so frustrating!.
When I first met Lita I was 217 pounds, had 28% body fat; my A1c was 8.7 (5 is normal and you are considered a diabetic when you hit an A1c of 6.3. I was depressed, overweight and kinda hooked on painkillers the doctors were giving me for my back, I was a mess and Lita didn’t sugar coat it when she got my blood work back! We met for 5 hours on our first “date” and she let me have it!!! BIG TIME!! Lita made it very easy to understand what was wrong with me and how I could fix it, or at least make it better! After our first meeting, Lita put me on a new diet and prescribed for me several supplements and a couple of prescription drugs to get me balanced out. My testosterone was pretty low and I suffered from erectile dysfunction so Lita prescribed me two medications to get me back on track. Lita laid out an incredibly easy and simple plan to follow. Her plan proved to be easier than all the other diet and exercise regiments I had tried in the past to piece myself back together.
I remember calling Lita after about three weeks and exclaiming on the phone how good I was feeling and how strong I felt. I felt so good that I was able to go to the gym five days a week! I told her this and she said, “Easy Tiger, your not as young as you used to be, you need to be careful.” That seemed weird coming from someone who wanted me to get into shape and take care of myself. That's when I realized my health care had switched from quantity to quality, Lita simply understands the whole picture when it comes to your health. She treats your whole being, not just one or two ailments. Her approach to healing me was a directed and specific package deal, not a one size fits all remedy or treatment. I simply followed the directions laid out by Lita and I got better, quickly! I wish I had a "before picture” but I was pretty ashamed of myself and deleted all of them. I did attach an "After Picture" my wife took of me last summer.
With Lita’s help, I’ve managed to get my life back on track. My back feels better than it has in two years, my A1c has dropped to 6.0 and I’m maintaining my blood sugar with less and less insulin each day. I weigh 189 pounds and have 11% body fat now, and it was easy to do! What Lita does works really well, you just have to follow her directions and trust her!!!
When I turned 30 years old, I decided to get off birth control. Two months later I began lactating, never having a child. I went to the doctor, who advised me to get back on birth control. That did not feel right with me since that’s what got me here in the first place. The following months I became depressed, low energy, zero sex drive and could no longer be as physically active as I used to be. I was at my wit's end when my friend recommended Lita Senior. Prior to meeting her, I had to get some blood work done and shortly after I had an appointment. That appointment changed my life! She explained the results of my blood work and explained how she was going to help heal my body from the inside out. She spent 3 hours explaining everything in detail and coming up with a solution.
She personalized my plan, to include diet, hormone balance, and professional supplements to correct my deficiencies. I left that appointment feeling like a new person!! I am now 37 years old and see Lita twice a year to make sure everything is working the way it’s supposed too!
Hello, my name is Nancy Towle. At 40 years old I had a complete hysterectomy. I had no idea what a whirlwind of emotions and health issues would ensue after this procedure. I was put on hormone replacement therapy through my primary care doctor but nothing was helping. I had gained about 45 pounds, was depressed and one angry woman. I started researching alternative therapies and was directed to Lita Senior, NP, that day my life changed! Lita spent hours with me going over my labs, how I could lose weight, and I could begin to feel like myself again.
I have been seeing Lita for approximately 10 years. I no longer have hot flashes, night sweats, depression, have lost most of the weight and my overall physical and mental health have improved greatly since then. I would and do recommend Lita to any and all other woman that are pre and post-menopausal. My life has changed and yours can too.
I am a 51-year-old patient at Medical Wellness Center and Lita Senior has been my Holistic Nurse Practitioner for the past several years. After 20 years of working in a mental health facility, I found myself both physically and mentally exhausted. I was anxious, unable to think clearly and couldn't sleep through the night. In the past, I was generally able to cope with the challenges of work and life, but now I was feeling less and less capable of keeping things together. Even more frustrating was the fact I couldn't explain why I felt so hopeless and terrible.
My supervisor at work, observing my symptoms, suspected that they may have been hormone related and she referred me to Lita. After completing a blood panel, the results showed that my testosterone and progesterone levels were extremely low, while my estrogen levels were through the roof. My thyroid function was very low and I had nutritional deficiencies. Basically, I was in terrible shape! After explaining in detail my lab work, Lita was able to discuss my symptoms and specifically pinpoint what was causing them.
Based on my lab results, she developed a Bioidentical Hormone and Nutritional plan to address my specific needs. It wasn't an easy one time fix. Women's bodies are complicated, and our hormones are constantly changing with the amount of stress and flux in our lives. This is why I recommend working with Lita. Her holistic approach to your treatment takes into account your whole health picture. It is very comforting to be able to talk with an expert in the field who can validate how you are feeling, as well as, explain why you are feeling the way you do. But most importantly, she will help you create a pathway to feeling better and enjoying your life to the fullest extent. As women, we all deserve to be healthy, happy and feel great all the time.
BHRT helped me feel like my younger self. I feel calmer, happier, more productive and I am able to sleep through the night. I feel that BHRT is an investment in me. I want to look healthy, feel great and live my best life. I firmly believe that my relationship with Lita Senior, NP, and my personalized program are directly responsible for my current state of mental and physical well-being.
