San Jose Chiropractic Patient Allergy, Cough, Low Back Pain, Neck Pain, Sleep Issues, Fatigue and Mood Helped by Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

I came into the Dubners’ office at the urging of my family. They had grown concerned about my health as I often had a cough that produced phlegm and left me unable to lie down. Each night I would sleep in my living room chair, which left me with a stiff, painful neck and back. I have had Congestive Heart Failure on and off for the last few years and when I mentioned to my Nephrologist, Cardiologist, and Primary Care Physician they all did not know the cause of my coughing and suggested I take allergy medicine because my heart was fine. The allergy medicine was only a temporary fix and the cough always came back.

Since visiting the Dubners’ I can now stand up straighter, my head is up higher and I have even forgotten to use my cane a few times. I feel like I can move around easier and have even been doing lite exercise. I was impressed with how quickly my cough and the phlegm were eliminated, which helps me sleep better at night. My family members have noticed my health improvements and say I am less crabby and I chat more with them because I have the energy to do so. Following the food recommendations from Dr. Sharon has really helped me see the connection between what I eat and how it affects my health.

From my experience in their office, I would recommend this care to others because it is a unique, welcoming, and comfortable environment. I felt very relaxed and at ease with Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s gentle Chiropractic Care.

Palo Alto Patient Weight Loss, Back, Neck, Shoulder and Digestion Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

In April 2016 I started my treatments at the Dubner Chiropractic Center. Within four weeks, I lost 16 pounds, my energy levels spiked and I experience noticeable improvements with my digestive issues, lower back pain, shoulder, and neck discomfort. My body responded beautifully in many ways to Dr. Sharon’s protocol and Dr. Allen’s treatments.

Losing extra weight was something I had given up on since I had previously been a full blown sugar and carbohydrate addict. At first, I did not know how I was going to adjust my eating patterns and habits to my new Dr. Sharon prescribed eating plan. I lost 25 pounds in 4 months and it has been a breeze maintaining my new weight!

Eating whole unprocessed foods and avoiding the foods that my body does not like worked like magic. I easily developed new eating habits that are sustainable and easier on my checkbook too! I never felt deprived, in fact, I found food to be much more enjoyable and tasty than ever before, and still do!

With much appreciation and gratitude,

San Jose Chiropractic Patient Weight Loss, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Stress, Back Pain, and Fatigue Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

Dennis Balanesi 003

When I began treatment at Dubner’s office, my main goals were to lose 25 pounds, lower my blood pressure and high cholesterol. For many years I had watched these symptoms rise, which I think was likely from poor eating and lifestyle habits. My medical doctor prescribed medications to control my rising blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which eliminated the symptoms, but I had low energy and generally didn’t feel like myself.

Within a short period of time of receiving care from the Drs. Dubners, my blood pressure and cholesterol levels dropped enough that my medical doctor took me off of my medications. Not only did I lose 25 pounds, but I surpassed it! My total weight loss was 33 pounds with 6 inches lost around my waist. Also, another great benefit was that I did not lose any of my muscle or strength.

I have a lot more energy and feel less stressed now. I have also received many improvements in my skeletal structure and my back pain has diminished dramatically. I would recommend this care to others because the results speak for themselves!

I have always had lower back pain but all of the sudden it got worse and migrated to my spine. I could hardly get up out of bed or get into or out of a chair without excruciating pain. My little kids needed to be picked up all the time and it was killing me. I felt so crippled, like an old woman on her death bed.  I had gone to a doctor in the past for back pain, but his response was basically, “Get over it, you’re a grown up now, that’s just what happens, everybody has back pain, just take some Advil.” So, I didn’t feel motivated to seek medical treatment.

I did turn to yoga, but somehow the pain was getting worse, not better. Luckily, I overheard my very wise yoga teacher recommending the Dubners to another student, and I pounced on the information.  Within a few days, I was in their office and getting treated.  I noticed an immediate improvement with Dr. Allen’s adjustments, and a reduction in my inflammation and pain with the elimination diet.  

Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen helped me to get to the root of my severe back pain and together, we found a solution.  The pain subsided, and every day I feel like I am taking steps toward vitality and energy.

After two months of treatment I went to meet a friend for lunch and she told me she hardly recognized me. She said it wasn’t just the weight loss that made me unrecognizable, but that I also seem more confident and brighter in the way I carry myself. It was such a wonderful, affirming compliment and I owe it to Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen.  I’m excited to continue my treatments at Dubner Chiropractic to see what new possibilities of health can open up to me here.

I began my healing journey about one year before discovering the Dubners. After my second child, my daughter, was born, I spiraled into depression and anxiety. I had buried my memories of trauma from sexual abuse as a young teen by a teacher, but the emotional wall I had built was finally beginning to crack under the pressure of having a second baby. Every diaper change sent me into a flashback, I had visions of my teacher coming back to stalk me, and I frequently had panic attacks that I was poisoning myself with food.

On my thirtieth birthday, I decided to commit myself to healing.  I found a psychologist and psychiatrist and found out that I was experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I attended individual therapy.  I found a month-long anxiety and depression support group, and a 3-month long PTSD support group. I began regular yoga and mindfulness practices. Still I wasn’t feeling better, and I finally took my doctor’s suggestion to begin antidepressants.

Zoloft helped numb the pain I was feeling, and it did buffer me a little from the terrible shock of my father’s untimely death, hit by a car while crossing the street.  As I was grieving, the months dragged on.

I still wasn’t feeling that elusive state of wellness that I thought might theoretically exist.  My body was getting sluggish and I had to eat cookies and bars of chocolate each day to get through the hours. The thought of removing sugar from my diet sent me into a panic. What’s more, my back began to hurt in such a crippling way that I could barely get in and out of bed, much less pick up or play with my kids.  Desperate for a solution, I heard a trusted friend mention the Dubner’s, and I called within the next thirty minutes to make my first appointment.

Over the last several months, I have had so many breakthroughs and miracles with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I can’t believe it.  With Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic techniques, my back pain is almost gone and I feel light and loose on my feet in a way that I haven’t remembered feeling since childhood.  The elimination diet was a challenge, but with Dr. Sharon’s support I made it through, and pounds have fallen off my body effortlessly and I never needed to count calories or go to sleep hungry.

I credit a lot to Dr. Sharon’s acupressure techniques, because my psychiatrist and I decided that I was doing so well I could go off Zoloft, and as a result of doing so I feel better and more authentic than I could have imagined.  Finally, working with Dr. Sharon with the Bach Flowers has been amazingly healing for me.  I have been on a long road to health, and perhaps all of the steps I took were necessary to chip away at these old walls, but I feel like the progress in my mental and emotional well-being that I have made with Dr. Sharon is at least, if not more, effective as many of the psychological methods I have used.

I have brought my children to the Dubner’s and I recommend their practice to every friend I talk to.  I am amazed at how Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen’s practice has helped me to heal, trust myself, and become whole again.

Thank you Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen!

San Jose Patient with Diabetes, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Foot Pain, Shoulder Pain, Low Back, Depression, and Stress Chiropractic Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractic Office

For the several years I had been having pain throughout my body and specifically the arch of my foot, my right shoulder, and low back. The pain was something I tolerated as I lead a busy lifestyle and my diet was often less than ideal, which contributed to my High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and High Blood Sugar. I went to my medical doctor looking for solutions to my pain and other ailments and he promptly handed me prescriptions. After taking those pills, I began to experience many of the side effects, including liver problems.

I was at the end of my rope with my health and was looking for a support group with similar issues as mine on Meetup.com when I came across the doctor’s meetup. I was intrigued and signed up for their Home Healthcare Class. I learned a lot valuable information in their class and decided to have a consultation with the doctors.

It has been a few weeks since my first visit and I feel more positive, less depressed and less stressed. After the second week of receiving care from Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon I was able to take half as much medicine because my blood pressure and blood glucose levels had lowered significantly. I even lost 7 pounds! The pain in my foot is completely gone and every day my shoulder and back are getting better.

I was skeptical at first and the results show that Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s treatments work. My goal of getting off prescriptions once felt overwhelming and unattainable and now, are not only achievable, but are the starting point for lifelong health and wellness.

When I first met the Dubners, I had been injured in a severe sledding incident. I was in pain every day. My entire spine was whiplashed. There was no healthy curve in my neck, which caused my scoliosis to progress. I was always cold. I was also overweight by about twenty pounds. I had intense mood swings and emotional upsets which I felt completely helpless about. I knew I needed to find balance both physically and emotionally.

I’ve been to all of the Dubners free health lectures, and I’ve learned so much about natural health. The daily pain I had been living with for years is almost nonexistent – unless I eat processed sugars. I had no idea how much eating processed food caused pain in my body until I was educated by the Dubners. I committed to eating naturally, the way they taught me. I did their two-week Health Rejuvenation Food Plan when I started care. After about three weeks the extra pounds and inches started falling off. I went from a size 14 to a size 4, which I’ve easily maintained for 3 years now! In addition to the weight loss, I’ve noticed that the shape of my body has changed with my new, improved posture. I get up earlier in the morning than before, feeling awake, energetic and positive. I feel more like myself – or the best version of myself.

Dr. Sharon’s gentle acupressure treatments helped lessen the residual effects of the birth control and anti-depressant chemicals I had put in my body long ago. This improved how I felt tremendously. Also, Dr. Sharon treated me for my cold sensitivity and now I am able to tolerate cooler temperatures. The emotional treatments I received from Dr. Sharon have helped as well. Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic adjustments have restored my range of motion and my body’s natural state of balance. My spine is the healthiest it’s ever been.  I’m better able to adapt to stress now. I feel more present and ‘in my body’. The work is so gentle, yet profound. It has truly been a blessing to be cared for and also to be taught how to care for myself. Thank you, Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, for all of your support on my healing journey.

San Jose Patient Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Weight Loss, Back Pain, Hand Pain, Sleep Problems, Sugar Cravings and Stress Success Story through Cupertino Chiropractor at Dubner Chiropractic

Monday, December 8th, 2014

I have been a patient of Dubner Chiropractic for about 2 months now. Before coming here I would take 50 units or more of insulin a day for a few years for my diabetes. I also have had a severe condition of fibromyalgia for the past 25+ years. I was on 8 different medications to help with pain, diabetes, blood pressure, kidney and cholesterol. I suffered from liver damage and stage 2 kidney disease. Prior to attending treatment with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I had seen a primary care physician and a beneficial chiropractor, but not much changed.

Immediately after coming to Dubner Chiropractic, I saw results. Within two weeks, I got off all of my insulin. I am off all of my other medications except one. My pain is virtually gone. Before, I experienced pain all over. Now I am capable of moving with great freedom and in addition, my sleep has improved. I have lost 27 pounds and 3 ½ inches at my waist since my first day here, and my blood sugar numbers are now in the 90’s with no medication. I also no longer have sugar cravings. Since being here, I have noticed that I have been much calmer, a lot happier, relieved, and more positive, and over all I feel better about myself.

With the combination of Dr. Sharon’s acupressure and Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic adjustments, I am now insulin free and I am happier with life itself. On top of their great work, the doctor’s emotional work, encouragement and support have definitely made the experiences I have had here worth continuing. I recommend and already have recommended these doctors to others. It will not only help symptoms go away, but it will save your life. I have tried a lot of things, but this is by far the most effective – even my medical doctors are supportive of it.

In addition to having one on one time with the doctors, their in-house health talks and lectures have brought me to understand more about what is good and what is bad for the human body. My dog, believe it or not, has also improved in health. Though most say not to, we feed our 11 year old dog from the table, and since my husband and I have changed our eating habits, our dog is getting happier and healthier with us. I am happy here. I feel good coming and feel better when I leave due to such great treatment and service.

We, Surendra Srivastava, and spouse, Nirmala Srivastava, have been to US on a holiday trip from India since July 2014. We are staying with our son and family at Cupertino, CA. We had not been able to enjoy the trip due to severe knee joints pain and other related health issues. During our stay, our close family friend, based on their experience, suggested us to consult Dr. Allen Dubner, and Dr. Sharon Dubner.

We met with the Dubners on July 17, 2014. After preliminary checkup, consultation, and investigation, our treatment commenced on July 18, 2014. We also attended two lectures by the Dubners on network chiropractic and health. We completed 24 sessions with Dr. Sharon Dubner and 30 sessions with Dr. Allen Dubner.  We would like to share our experience and observations.

  1. Dr. Sharon, customized a “Food Plan” for us. We followed the food plan strictly, which benefited us.
  2. Dr. Sharon possesses spiritual powers, and the movement of her magical fingers on the body provided ‘POSITIVE ENERGY’ to both, mind and body. One feels completely relaxed and stress free.
  3. Dr. Allen Dubner with his gentle manipulation of spine & nerves, and followed by mild exercises recedes the pains. With the initial itself, we started getting relief.
  4. Earlier, before the treatment by Dubners, we have tried conventional and modern medicines, but the issues persisted. Surprisingly, we have not taken any joint pain pills and pain killers since we started treatment with the Dubners.
  5. We are able to negotiate staircase better and also able to walk longer distance than before.
  6. Our digestive system has improved and constipation is almost eliminated.
  7. Standard weight has been maintained and blood pressure is under control. In the case of my spouse, Nirmala, she was able to lose a few pounds weight.
  8. Mental and physical stress is lessened.

We want to express our appreciation and gratitude for providing us dedicated & honest services in healing our miseries. We consider Dubner Family Practice as ‘The Temple of Humanity’. While you enter the premises, you are greeted by the gracious lady Shannon with a sweet smile. The celestial sound of music fills the mind and body. Then you meet Dr. Sharon Dubner, ‘THE ANGEL’ with her ‘DIVINE MAGICAL TOUCH’, and Dr. Allen Dubner, ‘THE MESSIAH’ with his ‘GENTLE TOUCH’, both of who cures the mind and body.  They have adopted the established principles of the Medical Testament – “I TREAT, HE CURES”. Hence one comes to their abode with ‘painful tears’ and return back with ‘smiling cheers’.

Milpitas Chiropractic Patient: Back Pain, Allergies, Athlete’s Foot, Stress Success Stories at Cupertino Chiropractor Office

I’ve been coming to Dubner Chiropractic for 2 ½ months. Before I came, I thought I was as healthy as one can be, but I was about to find out otherwise. In that short amount of time, I am happy to report that I am feeling even healthier than when I originally came in. What brought me to Dubner Chiropractic was exercise-induced back pain. I had heard about Network Chiropractic and was happy to find a practitioner in the area. Dr. Allen’s gentle adjustments have helped my whole body to feel better after just a few sessions. What I hadn’t anticipated when coming to this office was working with Dr. Sharon, receiving her gentle acupressure treatments for my allergies. The allergies had started around 8 years old. When I had allergy testing done on my back, I was allergic to almost every type of mold, dust, pollen, flower, tree, grass, weed, and animal dander. I had seen multiple doctors in both China and the U.S. for these symptoms. They prescribed medications, nasal sprays, and even shots, none of which completely alleviated my symptoms. The moment I stopped with the prescriptions, my allergies would return, and even with the meds, I couldn’t breathe through my nose.  I am happy to report that after 1 ½ months of treatment, I am now able to breathe through my nose for the first time since I was a kid. My family and friends are amazed! Another unexpected improvement was in the case of long-term athlete’s foot of 14 years. Over the years, I had seen dermatologists who prescribed creams, which worked, but only as long as I was using them. Recently I resisted the urge to use the cream when the familiar symptoms crept up. At that time I was on the 2 Week Food Plan to strengthen my immune system. Without any cream the symptoms disappeared and have not returned since. I have also noticed that I am able to adapt easier to the stresses of daily life, and am more flexible in my thoughts and attitudes. Coming to Dubner Chiropractic has been amazing. The adjustments are so refreshing, as are the Dubners’ sense of humor. Even though I was already very healthy and active, I did not realize how much improvement I could have beyond that – and THAT is what I want for others. I have recommended this care to my wife, friends and parents, and continue to encourage others to visit Dubner Family Chiropractic Center.
