Sunnyvale Chiropractic Patient Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hand Pain, Knee Pain, Shoulder Pain, Feet Pain, Auto Immune Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

In English:

In Spanish:

My symptoms started in December of 2016 and I was diagnosed in January by my medical doctor with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had severe symptoms that left me barely able to walk, trouble using my hands, I could not sleep and had pain that radiated throughout my body and was especially bad in my shoulders, neck, knees and feet. My medical doctor gave me a prescription for a medication that would help with these symptoms. However, I did not want to take it as I had seen the effect it had on my sisters who also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and did not want to have that experience.

I was not sure what I was going to do since the pain was bad and I felt like I was out of options. It was at this point my son told me to go see the Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon as he knew they could help me. We had been patients seven years before. My son had been five years old at the time and he had remembered how great the help was that we received.

I am glad I listened to my son because in less than two months the pain in my shoulders, neck, hands, knees, and feet has greatly decreased. I am sleeping again which helps me have more energy to do regular activities. I am back to my day to day life and can cook, walk, and spend time with my family. I feel more positive, motivated, and better able to handle stress.

I have been surprised at how much better I have felt so quickly. Beyond just listening to the doctor’s recommendations and receiving treatments and following the Food Plan, I have learned how to make the best food choices for my body, which has helped to aid it in minimizing the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I feel as though my body is healing itself.

I am very grateful for Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon and the work they do. It has helped me be more conscious and take responsibility for my health and the choices I am making each day, especially when it comes to food. It can be a challenging process, but I know I am doing what is right for my body.

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

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!

Sunnyvale Patient,Neck Pain, Low Back Pain, Weight Loss, Stress, Fatigue, Improved Posture and Range of Motion Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

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.

Santa Clara Chiropractic Patient, GERD, Acid Re-flux, Digestive Problems, Insomnia, Sleep Problems, Fatigue, Stress Success Stories and Sugar Cravings through Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

I came to the Dubners after dealing with chronic nightly heartburn for 8 – 10 years. Previously, I had visited a doctor who performed an orthoscopic procedure on me. The procedure revealed that I had a loose valve, for which the medical doctor recommended surgery as the only way to fix the heartburn issues. Surgery was not an appealing option for me, so instead I took Pepcid nightly to bring down the heartburn – until I found the Dubners.

Since visiting Dubner Chiropractic, I have had so many improvements! I have now been heartburn free for 8 months! I threw out all of my antacids. Dr. Sharon helped me beat my caffeine and sugar addictions that were the major causes of the heartburn I had been suffering with. I’m now sleeping better. I have more energy and clarity, and I eat much better. With all of my improvements I have a more positive outlook on life. I was very impressed with Dr. Sharon’s muscle testing. I love coming into the office and being greeted by their friendly staff. I am so happy that with the Dubners’ help, I’ve been able to avoid surgery. I tell everyone about my experience with Dubner Chiropractic because I have had nothing but positive results!

San Mateo Patient: Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Arm Pain, Hand Pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Digestive Problems, Allergies, Fatigue Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

When I first came to the Dubners, I had been suffering from terrible inflammation and debilitating chronic pain all over my upper body: neck, shoulders, wrists, and joints of the fingers. My red blood count was low (anemia), and I would feel cold all over. Doctors had diagnosed it about 6 months earlier as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Until that point in my life, I had been mostly healthy, and had tremendous confidence in the western medical system. After seeing several expert doctors from UCSF, PAMF, etc., the only thing I learned was that I would have this condition for the rest of my life, and they might be able to control it by administering various cocktails of drugs (which sounded like poisons to me based on their side effects). I did a lot of reading, and increasingly it became clear to me that medicine was mostly flying blind (for example, one of the drugs they prescribed was Plaquenil, which was originally an anti-malaria drug until someone discovered that it helped some patients with RA). Or, with some of the newer drugs (biologics), they were trying to address the symptoms (trying to bring immune factors in blood into a normal range), rather than the cause (why were those immune factors off-kilter in the first place?). In computer science (in which I hold a PhD), we call such band aid solutions “hacks”, and they are almost always a terrible way to fix a problem. My confidence in the system was shattered; I refused to take the drugs, and sought out other approaches. I went on a water-only fast, changed my diet, and was already noticing small improvements; this was when I heard the Dubners talk at a bookstore and decided to give their approach a try. I was highly skeptical of their approach at first, but decided to stick to it, and am so glad I did. Not only have I been completely cured of RA, but several other conditions I had also resolved themselves: digestion problems, allergies, fatigue, etc. What I’ve come to realize is that what you eat and how you live your life is of paramount importance to maintaining your health, and the Dubners can guide you along the right path which is specific to you as an individual. I am now also a believer in the network chiropractic idea that disturbances to the nerves emanating from the spine can cause disease. Disease can also be caused by the subconscious brain not doing the right thing: this would explain why the placebo effect is so strong for so many diseases. After all, most computer bugs end up being problems with the software and very rarely with the hardware, so why would the same not apply to the human body? So it’s important for the subconscious brain to “think” that everything is going right with the body, and for that to happen, it helps to have a “healer” rather than a “doctor”: someone who works with you, is interested in you, and cares for you. I have no doubt that the Dubners are amongst the best healers out there, and I’ve been so lucky to have found them.

San Jose Chiropractic Knee Pain, Ankle Pain, Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain, Finger Pain, Arm Pain, and Fatigue Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Monday, November 5th, 2012

 

When I first began seeing Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, I had constant pain in my joints and muscles which included my knee, ankle, elbow, wrist, fingers, arm and many other areas. These symptoms had bothered me for years. I was not able to squeeze my hand tightly and even had difficulties climbing up the stairs. On top of that, I was always feeling fatigued throughout the day. Within 2 months of seeing the doctors, my joint and muscle symptoms had improved. I can finally raise my leg and climb up the stairs without any problem. My fingers finally can touch my palm without pain. Since going on the food diet for 2 weeks, I feel calmer mentally and my fatigue has improved. By knowing how to choose the best food for myself, I am getting healthier by losing weight from 157 lbs. to 147 lbs.! I have more energy now and I am pleased with the results that I have received at the Dubner Family Chiropractic Center.

Thanks Dr. Allen and Dr.  Sharon!

Patient from Santa Clara: Thyroid, Fatigue, Stress, Back Pain, Menopause, Night Sweats, Leg Pain and Posture Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractic

Monday, June 11th, 2012

I originally came to the Dubners with neck and back pain issues related to poor posture. I had seen a physical therapist a couple years ago who told me my posture was causing pinched nerves. I went to a traditional chiropractor for almost a year after that with discouraging results – I was in more pain, and had developed a limp when walking. With nothing seeming to work, I became anxious and depressed, and was prescribed medications to treat those symptoms.
Since becoming a patient at Dubner Chiropractic, I’ve had so many improvements which have brought me a tremendous boost of satisfaction. My posture has improved; the limp is gone. I’m no longer on medications for anxiety and depression. I find it easier to be present, energetic and happy. I have had bowel and urinary flow improvements. I’m not cold even though I no longer have a Thyroid. I sleep much better, without the night sweats I had before. I’m more in touch with my body’s needs. I love myself and others even more than before. I finally have the life I’ve been wanting. Coming to Dubner Chiropractic has been good for me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The staff is genuinely happy to see me and truly cares for me. I love coming to the office, and I tell people about it all the time! I’m so excited to be alive!

Cupertino Chiropractic Patient Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Stress, Weight Loss, Fatigue Success Story at Dubner Chiropractic Center

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

I had been diagnosed with Diabetes and High Blood Pressure about a year ago. Six months after being diagnosed, my symptoms got worse. I had been prescribed Metformin for the diabetes and Lisinopril for my blood pressure. While I didn’t have any side effects from the drugs, I also didn’t have any relief. Being on the medications did not help keep the diabetes or the blood pressure under control. They simply did not work for me. When things seemed to be getting worse, I found Dubner Chiropractic. I started treatments with both doctors, and started seeing results within a week! I was able to get off of my medications within a couple weeks and am now off of all medications. My blood pressure and diabetes levels are normal. I used to feel tired, often to the point of exhaustion. Nowadays I feel more energetic, more active and refreshed. In the last two months I’ve lost 12 lbs.! I feel great, and much less stressed than before. I have been seeing the Dubners for less than 3 months. Both doctors are wonderful to work with. They are always enthusiastic and cheerful. The staff is great. Seeing is believing. I strongly recommend this care to others because I see the results!
