Infertility:

A woman in her 20’s was not pregnant after over a year of trying to conceive.  Her hormones were balanced with botanical medicine, and she was educated on tracking her basal body temperature.  After 2 months she became pregnant and recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

A woman in her 30’s, who already had a 5 year old daughter, was having difficulty getting pregnant for the second time.  After acupuncture treatments and homeopathic medicine, she became pregnant in 3 months and had another baby girl.

A woman in her late 20’s had 3 miscarriages and was told she would not be able to carry a baby to full-term.  After a protocol of acupuncture, homeopathy, and botanical medicine, she became pregnant in 4 months and carried her baby boy to full-term.

Autism:

The parents of a 3 year old boy saw me for help in treating their child’s difficulty with speech, constipation, inattention, and insomnia.  Within 2 weeks of following a specific individualized diet, his bowel movements were regular.  4 weeks later after supplementation of the patient’s nutrient deficiencies, as well as homeopathic medicine and daily activities for speech, their child was finally looking at them in the eyes, could speak a few sentences and would sleep comfortably for 8 hours.  After 1.5 years of treatment he is now in mainstream school and doing very well.

Cancer:

A man in his 50’s who had been diagnosed with Lymphoma was suffering from chronic fatigue, night sweats and itchy skin for the past several years.  I saw him shortly after his last chemotherapy treatment.  Within 1 week his energy was markably increased and utilizing clinical nutrition he experienced muscle recovery enough to exercise within 6 weeks. His depression lifted and memory greatly improved so he felt back to normal twice as fast as his first round of chemotherapy. 

I treated a women diagnosed with lung cancer in her 40’s before she had any allopathic treatment.   I was able to boost her immunity significantly so that during the chemotherapy and radiation, she did not suffer from common side effects such as fatigue, hair loss, nausea, or vomiting.

Parkinson’s Disease:

A man in his early 60’s who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease for over 5 years came to see me on a recommendation that I could help increase the effectiveness of his drug prescriptions.  Within 2 weeks he noticed significant change in his energy, mood, and sleep.  After 4 weeks of treatment using clinical nutrition, botanical medicine and acupuncture, his tremors were gone.  He was able to stabilize on his medication and has not needed to increase the dosage. 

Eczema:

Parents of a young girl brought their child in for chronic eczema that covered both of her feet.  The only symptom that she had was intense itching that was aggravated by swimming and worse at night.  She had been suffering from this skin condition for over 2 years, and after trying cortisone cream off and on, which did not help, they came in for a second opinion. Her diet was analyzed and modifications were made to exclude several food sensitivities, as well as treatment with homeopathic medicine and nutrient deficiencies.  Within 4 weeks, her eczema completely cleared up.

Acne:

A woman in her 30’s with severe acne on her face, chest and back.  She also had PMS with breast tenderness, worsening of acne, and menstrual cramps.  She had been on the birth control pill for the past 12 years, with mild improvement of her symptoms.  Using botanical medicine and acupuncture, her PMS was gone within 2 menstrual cycles, and her acne was completely gone after 3 months.

His mother who was concerned that her son’s facial acne was worsening brought a teenaged boy into the clinic.  The only option they were given was to go on Acutane, which the mother did not want to do.  After a clinical nutrition assessment, liver detoxification protocol and acupuncture, the boy’s skin first healed, then no new outbreaks occurred, and his skin was clear for the first time in his life.

Smoking Cessation:

A woman in her 50’s came in specifically for help to stop smoking.  She had been doing so for most of her life, and had essentially quit several times, but not more than for a few weeks.  Her stress level was also quite high due to her job and family life.  After an acupuncture protocol of 1 treatment per week for 6 weeks, as well as stress relieving techniques, homeopathic and botanical medicine, she stopped smoking 14 days into the treatment and continued to be smoke-free after the 6 weeks, as well as today, which has been over a year!

Digestive Issues:

A woman in her 20’s had been suffering from chronic diarrhea, bloating, and stomach pain. She had a Food Sensitivity panel done in order to effectively eliminate all foods that were causing her digestive distress. Her treatment plan consisted of dietary changes and botanical medicine.  After only a few weeks, all of her digestive complaints were gone and she no longer suffers from anxiety around food.

Migraine Headaches:

A man in his 30’s had been suffering from frequent migraines.  The pharmaceutical drugs he had been given for pain made him ill, so he wanted to get to the bottom of why he was having the headaches in the first place. During the assessment, he was also found to have constipation and difficulty falling asleep.  He kept his emotions in and subsequently suffered silently. After a few weeks of keeping a journal and writing down how he felt, he was able to get a handle on what was causing him stress.  Through the use of guided meditation during acupuncture sessions, as well as Chinese herbs, he stopped having migraines and had normal bowel function.

Exhaustion:

A woman in her 40’s was unable to get out of bed in the mornings, although she slept an average of 8 hours per night.  She felt ill if she did not take a nap in the afternoon, specifically around 3pm.  Blood tests were taken which revealed iron and vitamin B12 deficiency.  She was given weekly injections as well as vitamins.  After only a few days she had more energy than she had in years!
