5 Drugs a Day for Asthma
Caio and his mother, Shirley, were victims in an auto accident in September 2005. One month later, Caio continued to suffer from daily headaches, and his mom decided to bring him to try chiropractic. Caio recovered quickly from his headaches; however, during the course of his recommended care plan, Shirley learned about the benefits of chiropractic and children…specifically children with asthma.
Caio had been under a pediatrician’s care for chronic asthma and recurrent ear infections since birth. He consumed medication after medication. He also had ear surgery where artificial tubes were placed in the ear canal to help with his drainage and infections. One of the tubes had already fallen out of his ear.
Since following their chiropractors recommendations and rarely missing a single appointment, Caio has been able to reduce and even eliminate most of his medications. He used to take on a daily basis Albuterol, Flovent, Flonase, Singulair, and Claritin.
Caio’s mom says, “I wasn’t sure chiropractic would help him, but to my surprise he is doing so much better. The results are unbelievable.” Caio says that he enjoys his hugs and treats at the office and most of all…he doesn’t have to take medicine all the time which caused him to suffer from stomach aches.
MD said OK to be on 6 Allergy & Asthma Drugs a Day!!!
Tani came to the chiropractor in 2009 with chronic allergies and asthma. She had also been diagnosed with high blood pressure which her medical doctor said “it’s probably hereditary.” Her allergy doctor told her that he had no problem with her being on her six allergy and asthma drugs for the rest of her life. At the age of 34, married with two young children, Tani was taking Allegra-D or Zyrtec, Singulair, Nasonex, Astelin, Pulmicort, Proventil, and Benicar. Thankfully a friend of hers referred her to a chiropractor, and she came in for her complementary consultation. After receiving Principled Chiropractic care, Tani was able to eliminate all 11 of her medications and her body began to heal from the inside out! Tani says, “I was unsure of chiropractic at first because I only knew and understood the world of prescription drugs.”
After seeing what amazing results that she experienced through chiropractic care Tani brought her daughters in. They were also on allergy medications and through principled chiropractic care her daughters can now live a prescription drug-free life themselves. Tani’s husband, Brandon, also came to her chiropractic due to severe shoulder pain. He also has received great results! Now the Keller family is a happy, healthy, and terrific chiropractic family!!
“Debilitating Migraines” – Cindy V.
Cindy started chiropractic corrective care in 2007. Cindy suffered with severe migraines for years. She missed many days of work because her migraines were totally debilitating. She took Excedrin Migraine frequently, but the medication never corrected the problem. After coming to the chiropractor Cindy understood that “healing takes time and repetition.” Over a six month period of time after starting chiropractic corrective care and receiving her specific atlas adjustments, Cindy realized that she had had only one minor episode with her migraines.
With Cindy’s amazing results, she brought her teenage son to see her chiropractor for wellness and maintenance care. She wants her son to have an optimal functioning nervous system as well and does not want him to end up with the health problems that she had experienced!
“In Bed for Three Months!” with Hypothyroidism, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia” – Cynthia S.
My spiritual sister Latonya referred me to the chiropractic. I was clinically diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and later Fibromyalgia. My problems started about 7 or 8 years ago. I was suffering from hair loss, weight gain, tiredness, and pain most of the time. My feet were swelling and my back and shoulder blades were very sensitive to touch. I had problems sleeping and sitting. I had neck pain most of the time to the point of me being bed ridden for about three months. I was prescribed so many medications that I could not remember all of their names. (I did not take most of them because I have never liked taking chemicals.)
I really came to this office out of desperation, but after my first adjustment, I was able to lay my head down without pain. After a few more adjustments the pain in my body was subsiding. I became hooked! After about three months of specific chiropractic care, I went to my physician for a check up. She could not believe my numbers from my blood work. Almost all of my numbers were normal. When I told her I was not taking medication and that I was under chiropractic care, she told me that I needed to continue taking my medication. I have been drug free since December 2008.
I stopped coming in for adjustments for about a month (for personal reasons). My body responded unhappily. Now I am back on track and I am a happy, faithful patient. My father, mother, second oldest brother, and one of my nephews have now joined the road of better health through chiropractic care. I tell anyone that will listen that this is the way to go. My energy levels are rising and I am functioning so much better.
Jeremiah came to see us due to a referral by his mother and grandmother. Jeremiah started receiving adjustments at about one year old and had bronchitis and mild asthma.
He was on breathing treatments five to six times a day. He was taking Pulmicort and Albuterol for temporary relief of the problem.
Since receiving specific scientific chiropractic adjustments, Jeremiah’s body is feeling and functioning much better and he no longer takes Albuterol or Pulmicort and no longer needs breathing treaments. His mother, Shareeta says, “Everyone is so nice and the doctors are great. Jeremiah loves everyone, especially Theresa.”
COLIC & GAS – Six Weeks Old – Ava N.
At six weeks old, Ava’s parents brought her to the chiropractor for infant reflux and colic. She was constantly crying and irritable due to gas and little sleep. Her parents described her situation as severe because she hardly slept and cried all the time. As first time parents, Alison and Brad were also suffering with lack of sleep and much concern for their baby girl. Ava’s pediatrician prescribed Prevacid and prescription gas medications. Neither Brad nor Alison had been to a principled chiropractor before; however, they had a niece who had received excellent results with her infant reflux through principled chiropractic care.
Ava’s Mom and Dad say, “Within a week, Ava was sleeping through the night. We now have a happy child. It feels like we have a new baby. We have never been to an office that is so friendly and caring.” With Ava’s healing and then learning more about principled chiropractic care, Alison and Brad decided to have their nervous systems and spines evaluated. Now the entire family enjoys the benefits of corrective chiropractic care.
Alison and Brad would like to tell all parents, “If you have a baby, have he or she checked by a principled chiropractor as soon as possible”.
Chiropractic Care After Neck Surgery
Diane came to Discover Chiropractic in May 2003 with severe headaches. She already had two discs replaced in her neck ten years earlier and was trying everything from pain pills to patches and creams as well as receiving epidural shots every six months for the pain. And with no results she decided to try principled chiropractic care.
Diane’s results were great! Her pain and headaches ceased, so she decided that she no longer needed chiropractic care and discontinued care. However, the following year, her headaches and pain returned. Her occupation as a fork lift operator involves a great deal of turning and twisting of the head and neck which further exacerbated her condition.
Diane admits that she should have never stopped coming and that chiropractic far surpasses all the other methods that she had tried because with chiropractic there are no side effects. She has recommended chiropractic to her family, friends, and co-workers.
Due to her past surgical history and occupation, Diane says, “I understand that I will need to see my chiropractor for the rest of my life in order to maintain my spine and live in optimal health.”
Darcy came to the chiropractor and started care in February 2001. Darcy suffered ear infections from December through January.
In this short period of time she had three back to back ear infections and her pediatrician had given her two different antibiotics.
Since Darcy has been coming to see us, she has not had any more ear infections. She does not take any medications and has not been to the pediatrician since January 2001.
“She loves to come and see the doctors and she is only 15 months old. She sleeps better and has better bowel movements when her neck is in alignment.”
“From Chiropractic SKEPTIC to Chiropractic Advocate” – Charity H.
When Charity first came to the chiropractor she was suffering from sinus infections for about one and a half years. They were so severe that she would cough up mucus and have debilitating headaches everyday. At night she wouldn’t be able to lay flat on her back, so she would have to put four pillows under her head to proper her up in order to sleep. She continually took antibiotics, nasal sprays, and even steroid shots but nothing helped her.
Although she had family members that had been under chiropractic care for back pain and severe allergies who testified about the benefits of chiropractic care, she was still very doubtful about starting care. Within three days of beginning principled chiropractic care, the innate intelligence of her body began to expel her excessive mucus out of her body, and her headaches began to go away. Since being a practice member here, Charity has eliminated all medications since 2004 including the “common monthly female medication – Ibuprofen” for menstrual cramps.
Ethan, Charity’s first son was born in 2006 in a local hospital. Following a traumatic hospital birth which involved the use of forceps and an episiotomy, Ethan was not able to have bowel movements on his own. His pediatrician gave him Glycerin tablets and told his mother to have him drink prune juice. Charity decided to bring him in. With just one adjustment, Ethan came home and had a bowel movement on his own.
In October 2009, Charity became a mom for a second time with her daughter, Lauren. After her traumatic hospital experience with her son, Charity decided to have her second child at home. Near the end of her pregnancy, her midwife discovered that the baby was in a Breach position. The medical approach to this situation would be an invasive and uncomfortable manual procedure to try to turn the baby and then ultimately a Cesarean; however, Charity heard that specific chiropractic care could also facilitate the baby to turn into the normal vertex position, and soon thereafter Charity delivered Lauren in two hours at home. That same morning Charity called her chiropractor who came to her house after church that day to adjust both her and her baby Lauren.
Severe Constipation & Urinary Tract Infections – Shirah W.
Shirah came to the chiropractor in May 2007 after her grandmother had referred her mother and her family. At the time she was suffering with severe constipation and urinary tract infections. She was having bowel movements once every 2 weeks and it was so painful that at times she couldn’t walk. Shirah’s Urologist and Gastrologist couldn’t find anything wrong with her! She was taking Miralax (which made her bowel movements uncontrollable).
After her third specific, scientific, chiropractic adjustment, she went home and had three bowel movements in two days. Thank God, she is now back to normal! Her mother Kristy was suffering with depression, her father with spinal pain, and her brother with speech and hearing problems. Now mom is no longer on medication and the whole family is healthier thru chiropractic care. Mom says she was a complete skeptic, but now tells anyone who will listen about specific, scientific, chiropractic care.
Multiple Sclerosis…There is a better way! – Marie S.
In 2008 Marie came to the chiropractor as a last resort. She had been given a diagnosis for a debilitating disease, Multiple Sclerosis. Her Neurologist said that there was NO Cure and that she would just have to deal with the symptoms; these symptoms included numbness from head to toe and severe headaches which induced vomiting. She was on daily medications such as Imitrex and Avonex. Her symptoms for Multiple Sclerosis got so bad that her neurologist was recommending weekly shots. …And that is when Marie found her chiropractor. As she began to get principled chiropractic care and get her severe spinal problems corrected and through Time and Repetition, she no longer has headaches and her numbness is gone! In just a short time, Marie’s co-workers noticed a drastic change in her attitude. Marie said that “she knew that it would take time to heal”, but through Above-Down, Inside-Out healing, she has been given her life back! Marie has a nine year old daughter named Karrie who suffered with nosebleeds.
After Marie came in and saw that the office has a family friendly atmosphere, she brought Karrie in so that her body could be healed also! Recent research has proven that Multiple Sclerosis is linked to past head and neck trauma causing “nerve interference” and “subluxation” of the upper neck and Atlas.
“Blood Pressure Blues!!” – 6 Blood Pressure Pills – Marianne M.
MarianneHi! I’ve been under Chiropractic care, on and off for almost 30 years. Unfortunately, it’s the “on and off” part that caused my problem. On January 22,2009, I was taken by an ambulance to the emergency room with a sky-high blood pressure. The ER doctor put me on meds and sent me home. Over the following 8 months, after trying at least 9 different prescriptions, I was still on 6 of them, with a myriad of side effects that were affecting my productivity, balance, energy levels, and more. So Finally, I came to my senses and decided to stick with the care this time. After a few adjustments and a new regiment of heart healthy herbs, my blood pressure is virtually normal and I’m on my way off the last Rx! There is no more dizziness, I have no aches in my legs, the hacking cough is leaving, my energy is back and I’m sleeping all night again! I know and understand the miracle of Principled Chiropractic Care…now I fully understand the “time and repetition” that it takes to stay healthy and drug free.
Chronic Sinusitis – Bret M.
Brett started care in April 2001. I have suffered with low back pain for many years, since early in my military career when I injured it while parachuting. I have also had chronic sinusitis for over 10 years. I have had two surgeries on my nasal passages. When I came to the chiropractor I learned about the spinal degeneration (decay) in my neck and spine and how it lost its proper curve. No other doctor told me I had these problems. With consistent specific chiropractic adjustments I no longer have any pain in my lower back and I have recently scored higher on physical fitness test and beat my two mile run time from last year by 45 seconds. I also have been able to stop taking Zyrtec (allergy medicine) and Flonase (sinus medicine).
“No More Sleepwalking!” – Nicole S.
Nicole started care in October 2005 following a motor vehicle accident; however, she has suffered with sleepwalking her entire life. She was given sedatives and various other sleeping medications for her condition. When she was younger, she saw numerous physicians about her sleepwalking that claimed – “she would grow out of it.” Upon arriving at the age of 27, she continued to have these episodes at least twice per week. She was nervous upon starting chiropractic care because she had never been to a chiropractor; however, since beginning chiropractic care and following her recommended care plan of 2-3 times per week for several months, Nicole is thrilled to say, NO MORE SLEEPWALKING!! Nicole says, “Chiropractic really does work! Take it from me!”
“I’m Pregnant At 40!” – Delaina M.
Delaina started principled chiropractic care for spinal pain. Not only did she receive positive results regarding her pain, but she also received other benefits as well. After the birth of her second child, who currently is eleven years old, her menstrual cycles never started again. The medical community prescribed her various birth control pills over the course of 9 years, which caused a lot of weight gain. Within a short time of starting corrective chiropractic care, Delaina’s menstrual cycles normalized, and at the age of 40 years old, she now has a newborn baby boy named Logan. Within a week of Logan’s birth, Delaina and her husband brought him in for his first chiropractic evaluation.
Delaina says “My older children had a lot of childhood problems and I now see with my son that it could have all been prevented had they been going to the chiropractor at a young age. My son is now 1 year old and has never had any antibiotics in his body!
” Delaina’as entire family receives chiropractic care and she constantly is telling others about the benefits of chiropractic for the family.
82 years young and Pain Free – Bertha S.
Bertha was referred to the chiropractor during a patient dinner. She suffered with spinal pain, neck pain, osteoporosis, and leg cramps at night. She had been suffering for months rating her pain at 7 out of 10 for severity. Her orthopedist recommended pain medications and shots in her back.
Bertha was nervous about starting chiropractic at first because she didn’t know what to expect. She said she realized that she couldn’t erase time, but she was willing to give chiropractic a try. Bertha is happy to report that principled chiropractic care has made her feel and function much better. She referred her sister and says that she is doing much better also.
Migraines, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol & Ritalin!
“HELLO HEALTH – GOODBYE DRUGS”
Cherilyn “Mom” arrived with back pain, migraines, and headaches. Her health problems were severe. She was hospitalized several times and her pain also affected her ability to care for her children. She routinely saw her neurologist who recommended more and more prescription medication on a daily basis. Cherilyn knew that all these drugs were affecting her liver and kidneys, but she continued to take them because she had not been educated yet on the benefits of principled chiropractic care. After 6 months of corrective chiropractic care, she no longer has back pain and her migraines are almost non-existant. She no longer takes Dilantin, Depakote, High Blood Pressure medication, or Cholesterol medication. Scott was diagnosed with ADHD and asthma. The medical doctor prescribed him Ritalin. Since starting corrective chiropractic care he has reduced his asthma medication and no longer takes Ritalin. Savannah had a severe case of asthma. Her asthma would hospitalize her several times per year. She regularly was seen by a pulmonologist. With principled chiropractic care, Savannah no longer takes Singlair or Advair. Although Barry “Dad” and Mikaela “baby sister” had no “medical diagnosis” like the rest of the family, they understand the importance of chiropractic care for overall function and general health and wellness. The entire family completed their corrective chiropractic care program. They now continue their chiropractic journey with maintenance care to keep the entire family in optimal health.
Juvenile Rheumatiod Arthritis – Austin U.
Austin came in diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Auditory Processing Delay, and Juvenile Rheumatiod Arthritis. These diagnoses’ required speech, feeding, and occupational therapy three times per week along with special education placement. He was being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. His mom says his treatment was on how to “deal” with his disorders not on how to “heal” his disorders.
After Austin’s first few specific, scientific, chiropractic adjustments, his attention span improved and he was able to sleep through the night. He also said to his mother, “That the loud noise in my head is gone. I can hear at school now.” Austin’s mom says, “Austin’s report card showed amazing improvement, and he is now doing well in a regular education setting. Austin can also tell me when he needs an adjustment because the “noise” in his head starts to return.” Austin’s entire family is under principled chiropractic care. Austin’s mom, Veronica, realizes that not only do her son’s spine and nervous system need to be in optimal health, but that the rest of the family deserves the same as well.
Acid Reflux, Blood Pressure and Insomnia – Michael R.
Michael started care in March 2007 with low back pain, acid reflux, high blood pressure, and trouble sleeping. He had been treated by his family medical doctor with prescription drugs which didn’t help him at all.
Since starting principled chiropractic care, he no longer takes his sleep medication or his blood pressure medication and his acid reflux is now under control. And of course his lower back is better as well. Michael followed his doctor’s recommended corrective care plan and never missed an appointment. He continues to maintain his progress and overall health with his recommended maintenance care appointments. Michael says, “I really like the doctors and their Team. They really seem to care for your health. You will see results without drugs. I appreciate all their help.”
Vertigo & Dizziness
Donna started in early 2006 for severe vertigo, which caused her dizziness and vomiting. The vertigo was so bad that it would last three to four days at a time. She was given medications that would provide only temporary relief. She was referred to our office by another patient, however Donna was very skeptical about chiropractic, but since she was desperate for help, she decided to give it a try. Since beginning chiropractic care and getting specific scientific chiropractic adjustments she has completely improved. She no longer needs any medications, and is virtually vertigo free. Now Donna comes for wellness care adjustments every so often to keep her body free from nerve interference and vertebral subluxations.
