For those of you in doubt of the healing possibilities chiropractic care can give you, please read my story.
I have never experienced migraines in my life, up until the past 5 years. I saw a General Practitioner and was prescribed a medication that worked, however, the migraines got more and more frequent and I was relying more and more on my medication. Along with migraines, I was taking medications for acid reflux, allergies and asthma. My husband has been a believer in Chiropractic treatments for years and was visiting Dr. Russ when he saw that there was another Dr. in the office that was a cranial & migraine specialist. He told me about it and suggested I go see this “Dr. Kimberly” to see what she can do for me. I acknowledged his suggestion and put it promptly in the back of my mind. Until I got another migraine. I made an appointment with Dr. Kimberly, had a full exam and consultation then with the support of my husband decided to commit to a treatment plan.
After seeing Dr. Kimberly for about a month I was noticing small changes in my allergies and just feeling better over all, however, one day I came home from a visit with her mad and depressed. When my husband asked me how it went, I vented to him my frustration of every time I go, she sends me home with ANOTHER supplement and instead of getting OFF my many medications, she was adding to them! My husband reminded me that I was generally feeling better, my allergies were better and I hadn’t had a migraine since I was seeing her. I agreed with him, but I told him that I felt she was selling me “snake oil”. He laughed, of course, but asked why I felt that way. That day, Dr. Kimberly had asked me to try a supplement in the office. I came in with a mild headache and she wanted to see if the supplement made it go away. She said they tasted good to her, but they probably wouldn’t taste good to me and I had to chew them before swallowing. As she was chomping on hers saying how yummy they were, I was gagging mine down thinking “This Lady is CRAZY”. She actually told me they tasted sweet like candy to her. They tasted like dog food to me! I didn’t tell my husband how she described the taste for her, only that they were absolutely horrible and yet I got some. He couldn’t believe they were that bad, so I demanded he try one and tell me how it tasted. My moment of clarity was when he said….. “Hmmm, kinda sweet”. Without having to say so, I continued to see Dr. Kimberly and continued to improve with each visit.
I have learned since, that the sicker your body is, the longer it takes to reach your goals, but you can do it. After regular visits to both Dr. Russ and Dr. Kimberly, I am happy to say that I am off ALL of my medications and have decreased my Advair inhaler to once a day. I am much more in tune with my body and I know when I need a treatment or when I have not been eating right. My allergies have improved dramatically (sometimes right after I leave the office!) and my migraines are less and less frequent. The best thing is, now that my body is healthy on the inside, I know how to treat it with supplements instead of going to a General Practitioner for more antibiotics or other horrible chemicals. We still get sick and run down, but I would much rather use food based supplements to treat myself than putting chemicals in my body.
You get the whole package with Comprehensive Health and Chiropractic Center. Not only did they help me to eliminate my medications, improve my allergies and decrease my migraines, they taught me about what I was putting in my body and how it was affecting my allergies and migraines.
