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 Francisco Chiropractic Patient with Neck Pain, Vasovagal Syndrome, Blackouts and Fainting Success Story through Cupertino Chiropractor

I would like to thank both Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen for helping me. After over 15 years of being diagnosed with Vasovagal Syncope I was referred to Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon. I was on very serious medication to diminish my blackouts and fainting.

With my medical doctor’s approval I have reduced my medication from 2 ½ pills per day to ½ a pill a day. Plus, my blackouts and fainting spells are now milder and less frequent. Also, my neck had been stiff and painful for over two years and now it much freer and lighter.

In addition, their wellness directions and guidance continue to produce a healthier and happier person. Their work is so important to me that I travel on public transit from San Francisco to Cupertino.

I have passed along their tips and tricks to loved ones in order to make others more aware of a better lifestyle. I truly believe people come into your life at different points for different reasons.

Thank you Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen for being a part of my life!

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!

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.

Menlo Park Patient Neck Pain, Acid Reflux, Heartburn Success Story through Cupertino Chiropractor

I was referred to Dubner Chiropractic because I was suffering from excruciating neck pain. I had tried massage, pain pills and exercise, none of which helped. I had stopped doing my daily walks due to the pain I was in. Within a couple of adjustments from Dr. Allen, my neck felt so much better. What a relief! With continuing treatments, I gradually started walking 20 minutes every day. Then eventually three times a week and now I am able to walk, jog and run every day.

When I started working with Dr. Sharon, my acid reflux went away within 4 weeks. In the past I had taken Prilosec and still suffered. Also, my immune system is so much stronger. Now I rarely get a cold or ear infections.  In the past I would get painfully frequent ear infections, stuffy nose and head colds.

Since coming to the Dubners, I feel as if I have been released from something. I used to have pressure and stress and now I no longer do. At first, when I would see the totally gentle treatment Dr. Allen does, my initial thought was he was not doing anything until I actually got treated. I then immediately noticed a difference in my body. Also what surprised me was the advice Dr. Sharon gave me about food actually worked. I would definitely recommend this care to others because the treatment they do really helps and makes a difference in your life.

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.

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!

Menlo Park Patient: Shoulder Pain, Stress, Headaches, Neck Pain, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure & Weight Loss Success Stories at Cupertino Chiropractic

Monday, July 30th, 2012

 I came to Dubner Chiropractic to address the shoulder pain, tension headaches, and long-term neck pain I had been living with. They helped me with even more than that. I was so happy to receive Dr. Sharon’s gentle acupressure treatments in addition to the gentle chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Allen. Since being treated by the Dubners, the pain in my shoulder has disappeared. I rarely have a headache, and my neck feels great! I haven’t taken a single pain-killer since I’ve been coming here. The acupressure treatments helped stabilize my blood sugar and blood pressure levels. I’ve even lost weight! I feel so much more energetic now – my body feels light! I am less stressed and find it easy to accomplish daily tasks. I recommend this care to others because I know it feels good, and I’m sending them to a place where the people are nice and always smiling. The staff treats me like family. Thanks so much Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon for helping me with my health concerns.

Ellen Hickle: Freedom from headaches, shoulder pain and neck pain in Cupertino

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I came to see the Dubners because I had learned that their chiropractic care was totally gentle, with no twisting of the spine or cracking sounds. Before beginning care with Dr. Allen I would say that I had suffered from headaches (often severe ones), neck stress and shoulder tension for over 10 years. I learned to get by with my headaches which occurred at least every few weeks. I have now been under Dr. Allens’ care for 7 months and I feel so much better physically. My neck and shoulder tension is greatly improved and my headaches have reduced dramatically, especially the severe ones. If you’re a person who suffers from headaches you will truly understand the significance of what Dr. Allen’s’ care has done for my life.
