Milpitas Chiropractic Patient Blood Pressure, Weight Loss Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For the last 6 or 7 years, I had a more sedentary lifestyle that involved a lot of eating in restaurants, which left me overweight, pre-diabetic, and with High Blood Pressure (170/110). My medical doctor prescribed me medicine to help control my blood pressure. Even though the doctor thought that many of my issues could be improved with lifestyle changes, I was having a hard time making any permanent ones.

When I came to the Dubners my blood pressure was being managed with medicine (130/90) and I wanted to see how they could help me with managing my blood pressure and overall health. What stood out to me was that Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon found the root cause of my health issues and did not just treat the symptom. They did food testing to see what foods my body was not benefited by.

After receiving treatments and doing the food plan with Dr. Sharon I feel less bloated, have lost  40 pounds, I am no longer pre-diabetic, and my blood pressure 110/70 without medicine, which my medical doctor said I could stop taking. Another surprising change is that my posture is much better and it is now uncomfortable to not sit up straight. The plan the doctors laid out for me has been easy to follow and I can stick with it.

I would recommend this care to others and have told many of my friends and family to come see the Dubners.

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!

Mountain View Patient Low Back Pain and Weight Loss Chiropractic Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

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.

Monte Sereno Patient Chiropractic Knee Pain, Leg Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Stress Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Over the last year, I had gradual pain in my knees and legs, which I had seen physicians for and did not find relief. I had been taking Gluclosamine and no noticeable change. However, it was the sudden onset neck pain that brought me to the Dubners.

Within a short time, the pain was eliminated in legs, knees, neck, and the shoulder pain I had been experiencing was lessening. I could not believe the great pain relief as I had not been able to find a solution previous to seeing the Dubners. Another wonderful result was that I felt more emotionally solid, at peace, and my stress levels felt balanced.

An additional benefit, I lost 15 pounds on the Food Plan followed by a low sugar/carb Paleo lifestyle.

I have had great results working with both Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon; it is a recipe for success!

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!

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.

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’.

My high blood pressure began in 2004 and at its highest point it was 160/100. After years of seeing medical doctors and taking high blood pressure pills, I had seen no change in my health and had gained side effects, such as coughing and high uric acid.

Two months ago, my son Ben brought me to the Dubners’ office. After the initial consultation, I began receiving treatments from both doctors. Dr. Sharon’s emotional clearing method was amazing. I had not mentioned the childhood experiences which caused me emotional distress that I often focused on. Dr. Sharon picked out a flower essence that directly related to my experience and created support for me.

I feel so lucky to have met such amazing doctors as the Dubners and their staff. Due to their effort and skills, I have experienced alleviation of my sufferings, health issues, and mental stress. Their use of gentle chiropractic and acupressure work made the difference in my health. Now, I am able to maintain normal blood pressure of 130/88 with only taking 1/4 of the medicine dosage. In addition, I have lost 20 pounds, reduced overall inflammation, the coughing is gone, and I was able stop taking other medications altogether. The bloating has decreased so much that I have gone down an entire shoe size!

Overall, I am happier and mentally relieved because the above symptoms were resolved. I am heading back to China, and will tell all my friends and family about the amazing experience I have had working with the Dubners. Even though they cannot directly benefit from the Dubners’ treatments, I will carry the concept of wellness I learned here and share it with people in China.

Shoulder Pain, Neck Pain, Jaw Pain, Hip Pain, Weight Loss, Allergies, Skin Problems, Cold Hands and Feet, Memory and Stress Success Stories at Cupertino Chiropractor Office

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

I was referred to Dr. Allen at Dubner Chiropractic by a family member after an auto accident in February. My car had been totaled. I had pain in my shoulder, neck, jaw and hip. After one month of gentle adjustments by Dr. Allen, the pain from the auto accident is practically non-existent. Physically, I feel better than ever!

In addition to the chiropractic treatments, I also chose to see Dr. Sharon for weight and skin issues related to food allergies, problems I had dealt with my entire life. I had been looking for a place like this, where I could be tested for food allergies and educated about what kinds of foods are best for me, for as long as I can remember. With the acupressure treatments Dr. Sharon and I also addressed the coldness I had in my hands and feet. The results are amazing! Within 3 weeks of treatments and doing the recommended food plan from Dr. Sharon, the redness in my face cleared and the coldness in my hands and feet is now only 50% of the time instead of all the time. The inflammation I didn’t realize that I had in my body is now gone as well, as indicated by the loss of 4 inches at my waistline.

Within a month of seeing the Drs. Dubner, I am doing great! My memory is improving daily with the new food changes. I feel calmer. I’m drinking water on a regular basis. Now that my body is feeling good, I’ve been doing things that I had wanted to do for a long time, like spending more time outdoors and hiking. I’m no longer holding back in my life. People are complimenting me on how good my skin looks, and telling me that I look beautiful. I feel like I can go anywhere and do anything.

I highly recommend this practice to anyone, especially women. The office environment is safe and rejuvenating. It feels like I’m getting treated just by being here. If you are already curious, are drawn toward alternative medicine, or simply need to try something different, just get here!
