Almost immediately I started feeling better in so many ways. I felt that I had more energy and my mood had improved. Honesty the major surprise for me was how quickly my heart responded to the Pondera regiment. Within 2 weeks my blood pressure started evening out and my heart rate was steadier than what had become my “Normal”. I no longer get dizzy when I stand up, my heart no longer pounds in my ears and my heart rate even surprised my Cardiologist at my last appointment, he immediately asked me what I had been doing different. My answer was of course Pondera. Within three weeks I needed to decide regarding committing to the Pondera program or not. The decision was easy for me. I have made the commitment and have every intention to continue with Pondera for the balance of my life.
In addition to helping my heart I have noticed my kidneys no longer ache and hurt continually. I have kidney stents in my kidneys to aid draining. After 5 weeks of taking Pondera daily I just simply feel like my body is in balance and functioning as it should. I no longer have the depression of a downhill slide and each day I am feeling better. Pondera encourages me to eat better and do physical activity I have not been able to do for some time. Although not my reason for consuming Pondera, I have lost 7 pounds of body fat and I contribute that to my metabolism working at its optimal best.
“My name is Patricia. I met Dr. Sterling by chance at a Chrysler dealership. As he was discussing his experience with diabetes and Pondera, I decided to try his products.
Before Pondera: I am a type 2 diabetic. My diabetes’s was discovered 10 years ago. I was prescribed MF 40 mg 1 time a day and I take Nova shot as follows: 12 morning 14 afternoon and 1o evening. My morning sugar is 135 on average. I am dragging the morning, I have no energy and I have to push myself to do anything. My left ankle is swollen in the morning and by evening my whole left leg is swollen and numb as though my leg is asleep and it is painful. I have pain in the bottom of my foot and I continually stomp my foot trying to offset the pain.
After Pondera: After one week of using Pondera I was able to discontinue my 40 mg of MF. I feel really good, I have energy, I wake up at 4 am and so my laundry, go shopping and clean my house. There is no more swelling or pain in my left leg. It is completely gone. My blood sugars are averaging 97 in the morning and no higher than 101. People are noticing a difference in my skin. I look healthier and feel wonderful. I am so exited to find Pondera. I look forward to continuing this product and good eating habits to continue to get results and lower medications as my blood sugar continues to become normal.”

A friend sent me Pondera. I was a bad diabetic & all my doctors did was up my insulin. I felt so awful, lethargic and in constant pain. I began taking Pondera twice a day.
Within one month I stopped craving sweets and I lost 15lbs. I started gaining energy and feeling like a new person. People couldn't believe the difference in me. Since then, everything is so positive, friends are so excited that they have started Pondera!!!

"Dr.Wood I just want to thank you for introducing me to Pondera. This has helped me so much. Before I used it I was hurting all over in my joints, I didn't have any energy. I just didn't want to do any thing because I was hurting so bad. But once I started using Pondera and I mean as soon as I started using it I felt my whole body start to tingle. My sugar level is great now. It's not jumping up and down. Plus now I don't hurt any more in my joints. Now I'm outside more working in my yard."
“I saw this product on Facebook and was a bit skeptical. A user of Pondera assured me it was great. I ordered this over a month ago and I love it. When I first took it I could feel the energy pick up and I lost weight. I ran out and didn’t reorder and I felt sluggish with in a few days.
I just got my second bag last week and I feel incredible again. It keeps me full until lunch and I am using it as a meal replacement and a whole body balancer. It lasts longer than that expensive crap I would buy at GNC. It also helped to get my blood sugar down..”

"Been using this product for two years. Great stuff. I feel better and immune system definitely working, haven’t had even a sniffle since using Pondera. Good to be healthy and feel healthy."

"I have been using Pondera for going on a year , more energy, focus, and balance in my personal life and workouts , use as a meal replacement for breakfast sometimes, and not hungry at all."
“Dear Dr. Wood, I wanted to thank you personally for inventing Pondera. As you know I am a disabled Viet-Nam Marine and the Agent Orange in my blood has caused me many problems, one being Diabetes. At the start of my use of Pondera I was taking oral and injecting insulin. I had been on pills two times a day and injections four times a day. My doses were 70 units ML for long lasting and 15 units ML three times a day for a total of 115 units ML injections and two sets of pills twice a day.
Since starting Pondera about sixty days ago, my weight has gone from 340 lbs. down to 295 lbs. and I am still losing. I have had Diabetes for over twenty years and have not been able to control my blood sugars ever with diet and medication. I can tell you that because of your drink I am controlling my levels and reducing my insulin use down to only 15 units ML, with one injection per day along with my oral medication.
My dream for me is to lose all the weight and stop the medication. I will continue to use your product and rid myself of all the medication as it has also helped with all of the other problems like my cholesterol and lowered my blood pressure. Again from the bottom of my heart and I speak for myself and my family Thank You. Semper Fi”
My name Is Cyndie. I am 61 years old and I was a Registered Nurse for 35 years. I have always believed in approaching health problems the traditional way, with doctors and medicine. I have always been a skeptic when people talk to me about vitamins and nutrition. I have cabinets full of vitamins and it never seemed to make a difference, so, I was not initially that interested nor did I believe his powder would work.
In 1974 I was in a car accident and broke both of my legs. Due to the accident, I suffer from arthritis and inflammation in both knees, and now my hip. About a year ago, I was finally diagnosed with Scleroderma. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease which has been attacking my mouth and my entire digestive system. Everything is inflamed and I have been miserable for the last 2 years. I was beginning to believe that this was just going to be my new “quality of life”, and am very grateful that there was something that could do to change it. He stopped by my place of business and took one look at me and told me I looked terrible. He began, once again, to tell me to start drinking Pondera and follow a simple eating plan that he prepared for me. To my surprise within 11/2 weeks of following his suggestions, my hip pain is gone, my knees are better, I move better and I have energy. Normally on my day off I sleep because I am so miserable but last weekend I woke up early feeling great and took my dog for a walk at 7:30 am!
My digestive system is greatly improved, and as a bonus, I have lost weight without “dieting”. Pondera makes me feel full and I feel satisfied! I almost have to force myself to eat. I will continue with Pondera and Dr Sterling’s recommendations. Thank you Pondera and for being there to urge me to try the Pondera and help me change my eating habits. I got my life back with Pondera and I never want to be without it!”
I suffer from Crohns disease with pain and inflammation in my joints and irritable bowel movements. Once I started to take Pondera Wellness, within 1 week my pain in my joints went away, my bowel movements were normal, and symptoms of my Chrons disease seemed to disappear. I am truly thankful for this product. It really did change my life. Thank you Dr. Sterling
"My sugar levels has gone down. It gives me more energy and I feel a lot better."
This product exceeded all of my expectations. I originally began taking Pondera for the heart health properties.
This has helped improve my quality of sleep, reduced the amount of blood pressure medication I was taking, helped me lose weight, and increased my energy. I cannot say enough about how this product has changed my life. Definitely not your typical protein shake, and worth every penny!

“Hi Dr. Wood! I want to thank you so much for introducing me to Pondera! It has become part of my daily life, and what a difference in my “quality of life”! In as short period of time, I have not only lost weight (close to 10 pounds), but I feel fantastic. I am never “hungry”! In addition, my skin is better, I am sleeping better, and my thinking is clearer!
As you know, I just had surgery, followed by a major infection on my lower leg. It seems like the circulation is improved and everything is healing beautifully.
Thank you for helping me!”
