"I lost 28 pounds working with Barb Goshorn, the Nurse Nutritionist.
My experience with the Nurse Nutritionist has been life changing. I have battled with weight my whole life but the battle was almost futile in my 50’s until Barb explained the relationships between food and my health (including but not limited to gut flora). She looked at the prescription medicines I am (was) on and advised me about the vitamins they were depleting. She also talked about inflammation and the anti-inflammatory foods which made all the difference for me to walk and exercise with less discomfort.
I have been able to stop taking blood pressure medication and my cholesterol medicine has been cut in half. I hope to be off that also in the next months.
I have been dieting since 4th grade. I thought I knew what I should be doing. A whole world has opened up to me with the knowledge I have gained from Barb and the staff at Goshorn Wellness Center."- Christine Chipouras

"What a Blessing this treatment has been! No more plugged sinuses. I am back to eating moderate amounts of wheat with no side effects.
Thank you!"- Donna H.
"Barb is a knowledgeable nutritionist who is passionate about her work. Having been recently diagnosed with diabetes, she helped me understand the crucial balance between protein and carbohydrates and implement that understanding into my daily diet. I am much healthier, have lost 30 pounds and have my blood sugar well under control. I appreciate Barb's support and commitment."- Deb W
"I made a conscious decision to live a healthier life. I came to Barb and started Shape Reclaimed 9/17. I’ve dropped 50 pounds and took 7 inches off my waist with the program and exercise.
I feel great!! No more lower back or knee problems. They call me skinny at work now!"- Jim L.

"I lost 25.5 pounds working with Barb Goshorn, The Nurse Nutritionist.
My experience has been: Although I have another 25 pounds to lose, “Shape” and Barb have given me the motivation to continue. I am learning the proper way to eat and make better choices. I would not be able to continue without the kind words and awesome friendly personality of Barb and the other staff at the desk."- D.S.
"My life and confidence has changed dramatically since I started the Shape Reclaimed program with Goshorn Wellness Center. I have been on the program for 1 month and have just fit into my jeans that I have not been able to wear in 4 years!!
My confidence is through the roof, and I have never felt better!!"- Karen S.
"My Experience with Goshorn Wellness Center has been outstanding! I worked with Barb Goshorn and followed her advice for the Shape ReClaimed program. Not only did I lose weight, but I reduced my medications and my arthritis pain is minimal. I feel great!!"- G.P.
"HI! I'm writing on behalf of my husband Bob who I "dragged" to see Barb on the referral of a friend at work. My husband has been overweight for years with no continued success on diets. He started the shape reclaim program and has lost almost 100 pounds in 8 months - AMAZING!!!! He looks and feels so much better! He is currently off ALL medications! And the best part - he doesn't snore anymore! With Barb's help we learned how to grocery shop and read labels, how to cook and eat healthy. Barb is so enthusiastic and supportive. The entire office is very friendly and professional. Meet Barb and change your life!"- Dawn L.
"I can’t thank Barb enough for all her assistance in helping me achieve my goal weight!
I never thought I would get back down to the 120”s! I had tried everything that was out there. I had a drawer full of useless weight loss products that probably sis me more harm that good, not to mention I spent a lot of money on them, all of which was a total waste!
Not only is Barb a delight to talk to, I have learned so much from her as to how to eat, what to eat and when to eat. Even my husband lost 20 pounds just by following my new found healthy eating habits!
Thank you Barb!!"- Susan N.
"Barb is an amazing guide in the path to weight loss, greater health and vitality in your life! She knows exactly how to get results! I am one of those people who has tried everything with inconsistent results, but Barb has taught me a new approach to reaching my goals that has been met with greater success than I have ever achieved before, and feels very "doable". She has worked with me, and supported me, every step of the way, and continues to support me through maintaining it long term. Through her combination of nutritionist and nurse backgrounds, Barb's wealth of knowledge and experience that she brings, has helped me over every hurdle and challenge. I am off all medications, my diabetes is undetectable, and the best part... bathing suit shopping was actually a joy for the first time in my entire life! I highly recommend giving Barb a call!"- Amy B
"The Shape program has succeeded in allowing me to lose about 35 pounds in 3 months. I was skeptical at first since other methods I've tried have failed. But I'm a believer now!
What I like about Shape is that it taught me how to eat ordinary foods in a sensible, healthy way. Very early on I lost my craving for sweets and fatty foods. I still have fond memories of enjoying them in the past, but I'm now able to resist them and actually appreciate how much better I feel when I eat the balanced, anti-inflammatory Shape way. My motivation to do the Shape program was twofold. For many years I've been plagued with various autoimmune issues that I now understand were exacerbated by diet. With the help of Shape and Barb's tutelage I am not only thinner but my skin and joint problems have improved.
I must tell you that at first it was difficult. I didn't feel better right away, in fact I actually felt worse. I felt fatigued, achy, and mentally foggy. I didn't get that "new lease on life" zing that so many other people talked about and I was discouraged. Bur Barb was a terrific cheerleader, patiently explaining the metabolic metamorphosis my body was going through and helped me stay the course.
I'm happy to report that I'm now feeling much better and enjoying a resurgence of energy. I look forward to continuing my new eating habits as I now appreciate what a positive impact proper nutrition has on the overall quality of my life and health. "- Meg Northrup
" "Most of us who have struggled with being overweight throughout our life ask the same question - how could this be happening to me? I seem to eat all the right food and I exercise when I can. At first I gained 10 lbs. then 20 lbs. and then with the blink of an eye it was 65+ lbs. This is exactly what happened to me.
I was coming home from a Halloween party at our son’s house where my grandson had asked me to dress up like Batman. Because of how much weight I had gained I could not purchase anything locally so I had to order a costume online from a company that made XXL costumes. The next day I happened to have a chiropractor appointment with Dr. Andrew at the Goshorn Wellness Center. He was telling me about his brother who had a similar issue with his weight and how he successfully lost weight and changed his life with the Shape Program that was offered at the Wellness Center. The next day I called Barb Goshorn, who manages the program at the Wellness Center, and I received an appointment to review the program within a week. She outlined the program in detail and asked about my goal. My goal was simple. I am a 62 year old male who wanted to get back to the same weight I was when participating in sports during high school and college. A weight that I thought I would never see again.
During my first visit, Barb took the time to explain the program and answer all my questions. The supplements were provided along with examples of sample recipes. In the beginning I was hopeful but skeptical. To my surprise after the first few weeks I was down over 8 lbs. It didn't stop there. I would meet with Barb every two weeks and the least amount of weight that I lost was 6 lbs. during that two week period. I am happy to report I have achieved the goal of losing 65 lbs after only 5 months. During that time I was challenged with holiday parties, numerous birthday parties, and yes, even a vacation.
Barb and her team have provided me the means to take back my life and reach my weight loss goal. The program does work and I am so happy I took the challenge. "Joe Stulb
" After two accidents with broken bones in the last four years, I have been in a lot of pain due to inflammation. With no energy and being overweight, my back was hurting along with my knees. I decided to seek the help of Dr. Charles Goshorn again. While I was leaving my appointment, I overheard a women talking to another patient about the sugar content in bananas. I was intrigued with the knowledge this woman had and asked if she was a Nutritionist. At my next visit I asked Dr. Goshorn who she was. Come to find out she was his wife and he suggested I visit her and see what she had to say. I liked what she told me and was willing to try the “Shape ReClaimed” program. I am amazed how fast I am getting results. I have lost 30 pounds in three months. The inflammation is mostly gone. I have more energy than I have in a very long time. I feel more alive and happy with myself. “Shape Reclaimed” is an easy program if you are willing to follow the book provided and have guidance with the help from Barbara. You have to be creative with making your meals. You don’t go hungry if you follow the plan. If you are willing to make changes and really want to feel better, I highly recommend the “Shape Reclaimed” program. "- Betsy B.
" Shape Reclaimed is a phenomenal diet. I have tried so many other diets through the years and gained weight. I faithfully would follow them and gain weight. When the flyer for the Shape Reclaimed program came in the mail, I almost tossed it out. I decided instead to investigate this diet. I tried valiantly to poke holes in it and find problems with it. It sounded too good to be true.
Next my husband and I went to an informational meeting with Barb Goshorn. We decided to try it. I had nothing to lose but my weight. In the beginning of May I weighed 236.5 pounds.
The diet was restrictive in the types of foods I could eat, but the amount was way more than I had been eating for years. I was not hungry at all. After three weeks I lost 21 pounds-amazing!
While changing my lifestyle of eating, there have been other benefits to this diet. My inflammation of joints has decreased, the Roseacea has diminished, my energy level has shot up, I am not walking around tires, and the mental fog has vanished. Because I am the one preparing most of my family’s meals, they too have lost weight and feel better from healthy eating.
By the end of July I had gone from obese to overweight. I have stayed in Phase 1 under Barb’s supervision and have lost a total of 58 pounds to date. My goal is to lose 100 pounds.
Thanks Barb for all your encouragement. The staff at Goshorn Wellness Center has been encouraging and supportive through this education of healthy diet and living. I would recommend Shape Reclaimed for anyone wanting to lose weight or just live life to its fullest. "- Andrea K.
" "I want to let the Goshorn’s know how thankful I am for them. I have had an Achilles tendonitis in both my ankles for 3 years. I have gone through two rounds of physical therapy and twelve cortisone shots. I was told that I needed to have surgery to fix my ankles and it would require 6 months of recovery for each ankle. A doctor even suggested that I change professions. I am a very energetic person and cannot sit still for long. The thought of being down that long would drive me crazy.
A friend of mine suggested that I see Dr. Goshorn. The first time I met with him he was 99% sure he could help me. I ordered orthotics for my shoes and continued doing the exercises Dr. Goshorn suggested. My ankles became less painful and the swelling started going down. Dr. Goshorn is also treating me for migraines. I have not had one since he has been treating me.
I learned about a program Barb Goshorn offers. The program is called Shape ReClaimed. It helps increase your metabolism and reduces inflammation. While on the Shape program I have lost 20 pounds. The swelling in my Achilles is completely gone. Barb continually monitors my urine to make sure I am handling all the fat I am burning. I feel better knowing that someone is making sure my health is maintained.
The other day I told my husband that I was very thankful for the Goshorn’s. It is the first time in 3 years that I am totally pain free in my ankles. Because of the Goshorn’s, I can continue being active. The Goshorn’s are amazing people and I feel honored to be treated by them.- Tina
" I am a 48 year old woman and have been struggling with weight loss since the birth of my son 12 years ago. After my son was born I was able to lose about 20 pounds and remained steady tipping the scale at about 188 pounds. At 5’1”, that measures “OBESE”! You’ve all the heard stories from people who have tried “everything” to lose weight - well I was one of them. To site just a few attempts, there was Nutri Systems, LA Weight Loss, Weight Watchers, Counting Calories, and endless hours and countless money with Personal Trainers at local gyms. The personal trainer was actually working for me until I was in a horrific car accident while on my way to the gym. It took two hours a day, six days a week for sixteen months to lose 35 pounds. I thought that was pretty good. Barb thought it was pitiful! Eight months after the car accident, just as I was beginning to feel better, I took a fall and broke my knee cap! The total recovery time was about 2-1/2 years and resulted in putting the 35 pounds back on and no longer being able to send six days a week at the gym.
Feeling miserable and beaten, I sat at my desk one morning opening the envelope of local coupons we get in the mail (you know, the ones we usually throw away). I came across a coupon from Goshorn Wellness Center – Barb Goshorn – Nurse Nutritionist. I called the number, scheduled a consultation and started her Shape Reclaimed program on May 28, 2013. Over Labor Day weekend I finally managed to accomplish something I had been trying for 3 years – waterskiing! It’s been 18 years since I last got up on skis. Talk about complete elation! Although I am still 22 pounds away from my ultimate goal, I am extremely confident that I will get there! The program is totally manageable and only requires a true desire to change the way you look and feel.
About six months prior to starting this program I began experiencing what I believed to be the onset of arthritis in my hands, arms and elbows. After only 3 weeks, the inflammation in my joints was gone and the pain I had been experiencing was also gone. Up until that time I was Advil’s best customer – taking it at least once a day and purchasing a bottle every time I went shopping. I have not bought a bottle since beginning this program. In addition to that, I am no longer in need of my high blood pressure medicine. Weight loss is obviously the visible benefit gained from this program, but the things you can’t see – like inflammation and high blood pressure and everything else that’s going on inside our bodies – those are the true benefits! LONG LIVE US!
Do you have a doctor who you can talk to or e-mail with questions and actually get responses from? A doctor who doesn’t make you feel like a failure and says “get off your butt and go to the gym” or “you need by-pass surgery”? Barb Goshorn took the time to get to know me and my history. She asked me questions that I didn’t think to tell her about. She evaluated me as an individual, not as a part of the “obese group”. She made suggestions that she felt would benefit me based on the information I gave her. Barb is gentle, kind and very supportive. She does not shake her finger at you and say, “well, you shouldn’t have done that” or “you should have done this”. She says, “let us figure out how to make you feel better”. And if something isn’t working, she tries something else, instead of sending you to a different doctor. Best of all, she doesn’t know any criticizing words – she only has words of support!
After seeing my results, two of my friends have started on the Shape Reclaimed program. They have also seen wonderful results.
Make the decision – Make the phone call – Change your life! "- Nan R. Wood-Williams
" I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful experience I had working with you and your staff to drop almost 15% of my weight and reach my goals ahead of schedule. I have been working out for years and have never really been able to lose weight or at least enough to make a difference. By coming to you and learning about food, the reactions our body has to it and then modifying my behavior based on your suggestions and diet I was able to achieve in 8 weeks what I haven’t been able to do it years. The other important point is I travel 3 days a week for my job and I use to use that excuse, but with your program that excuse is gone and I lost several inches in my hips and belly (requiring several new clothes – great problem to have) and a bunch of weight. The best part about it is I learned so much in the program that I am confident I will not put the weight back on and I really didn’t have to do anything crazy like starving myself or cleanses or any other fad. I would say to anyone who has trouble losing weight or wants to lose it in a controlled and sensible way they absolutely need to work with you.
My results were amazing and I know it because I have had plenty of people tell me, and most importantly I feel it both physically and mentally. I also have the blood work and new low blood pressure to prove it!!!
Thank you so much.
Sincerely, "- James Sbarra
" I have been in the program for 9 weeks now, and I am feeling like a new person. I have lost 13 pounds to date and last measured (3 weeks ago) I had lost 1-1/2 inches from my waist and 2 inches from my hips, and all other tests done at your office show improvement. I would have never thought that I had a problem with gluten (wheat), but since virtually eliminating it from my diet along with fried foods and increasing my veggie intake, my digestive tract has been functioning much better. I used to feel bloated and gassy most of the time, which I had erroneously attributed to certain veggies not agreeing with me, when in fact it wasn’t the veggies at all but rather the gluten products and grease I was eating. I have been suffering for many years with arthritis in my right knee which my extra pounds was not helping. I was just about to undergo my second round of arthroscopic surgery of that knee for a meniscus tear repair and arthritis clean-out (last done 3 years earlier) when I first began the FLT program at your suggestion. Since I was basically sedentary for the first few weeks of the program due to the recovery time from my surgery, imagine my surprise when I began losing 1-1/2 pounds a week by just sitting on my couch! It was a miracle!! I had not seen my bathroom scale go any direction but up for the last 20 years. With Barbara’s nutrition guidance and the information she provided, the program was very easy to follow and something I can stick with for a lifetime. Now that I am almost totally recovered from my surgery, I am once again able to use my recumbent cycle at home which provides aerobic exercise and keeps my knee flexible, and Karen has started getting me slowly integrated into the fitness aspect of FLT… primarily strength/core training with hand weights/the ball and stretching… as my knee will allow. As things progress, I will increase the weights with the strength training and she will add in some band and ball exercises. I am feeling better than I have in years. I believe that without this program I would have continued to gain weight each year, my arthritis would have gotten progressively worse, and I may have ultimately developed diabetes or heart disease. You, Barbara, Karen, and the FLT program have saved my life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! "- D.F
" As a health and physical education educator, an athletics coach at the Varsity, JV and Modified levels, Interim Director of HPE, and Chair of my district’s Wellness Committee, my 33+ years in education have been an opportunity for me to practice what I preach. However, all of this education and experience did not preclude lapses as a consistent practitioner. That is the reason that I turned to First Line Therapy at the Goshorn Chiropractic and Wellness Center.
Under the tutelage and close guidance of Barbara Goshorn, B.S in Nursing and M.S Clinical Nutrition, I was able to get back to basics, to objectively see what was going on inside my body at the cellular level, and to address my needs in a relatively simple, yet straightforward manner. Barbara answered my questions, provided me with insights and materials, all shared in a light hearted manner and an enjoyable atmosphere. Barbara consistently encouraged me to meet my goals.
Although weight loss was on my list of goals, more importantly I wanted to attain the ability to positively affect the manner in which the cells of my body processed energy and nutrients. I sought to replace fat with lean muscle mass, and to be able to increase my body?s basal metabolism rate. To those ends, my goals were met and exceeded, and my weight is at a healthy level.
Presently, I am back on course for eating a more balanced, nutritional diet, for increasing my water intake and for exercising more consistently, both aerobically as well as through a strength development regimen. To those seeking a well-researched and data-driven method of increasing your wellness, I highly recommend First Line Therapy facilitated by Barbara Goshorn at the Goshorn Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Webster, NY.
