I feel like I have a new lease on life. For more than 25 years, I lived with fatigue, overwhelm, back pain, widespread muscle and joint pain, sinus problems, insomnia, brain fog and depression. Year by year, the symptoms increased and my weight increased right along with them. There were mornings that I couldn’t touch a place on my body that did not hurt.
In the past 7 months since I have been seeing the Dubners, things have changed dramatically. My energy level is amazingly improved. I have lost over 30 pounds, and the pain is significantly reduced and continues to decrease. I am off all medications. It is an ongoing process of peeling off the layers it seems. As each new layer is revealed, I feel like I am rediscovering myself. I am standing up straighter and taller both physically and emotionally. It is comfortable to live in this body for the first time in more years than I count. I have the energy and the focus to get things done. I have learned how to play. There is a bounce in my step, flexibility and ease in my movements, and a newfound joy and contentment. It is so good to be smiling again.
Thank you Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen,
I originally started coming to Dubner Chiropractic in 2004 to alleviate hip pain, which Dr. Allen successfully treated.One of the motivating reasons for correcting my hip problem was that we were planning on having children in the future. (more…)
For many years I was suffering from painful osteoarthritis in every joint and had terrible pain in the nerves on my ankle. I was diagnosed with degenerative discs causing me severe pain in my lower back. I tried many different treatments. I tried physical therapy and acupuncture. Then, I went to my primary doctor and ask to see a neurologist, but instead I was sent to integrated medicine. There they prescribed me cortisone shots. The shots did not have any real side effects, but after 3 months I did not want to keep fueling my body with all these medications. None of these treatments seem to work for me. My body was suffering, it was getting harder and harder for me to do different things and I was becoming less enthusiastic. The pain level and my fatigue were so terrible that I got to the point where I did not even want to attempt to do anything. I have been going to Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon for just 6 weeks and I have seen such great results! My general pain level was once an excruciating 10 but now it has decreased to a 1 or 0, which none of the medications I was taking were able to do. Due to the great decrease in my pain level, I feel more active and wanting to do more activities. As far as my muscle in my hamstring, it has improved significantly in strength. I do not feel as much hamstring pain and more importantly I have less muscle spasms. My constant fatigue has decreased and now I am more energetic. I am more relaxed and I appreciate regular daily things every chance I get. As an extra bonus my sinus congestion cleared up!
For over 30 years, I have been plagued by sinus infections that regularly followed the usual colds. They were treated with antibiotics; but over the last years, the treatments took longer and longer. This time, I was on antibiotics from April into June and still wasn’t free from the symptoms. After attending a presentation of Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon Dubner at the Los Altos Whole Foods store, I accepted their offer of a free consultation. I was deeply impressed by Dr. Sharon’s highly intuitive diagnostic, and followed the Candida diet she prescribed to the letter. Within two or three days, I started to experience a dramatic improvement in the symptoms of the sinus infection. Incidentally, and without suffering from any cravings or feeling hungry, I also lost 5 pounds without asking for it (I already had a rather normal weight for my age). Other beneficial effects included that the usual afternoon fatigue at work disappeared, and that my blood pressure (which was often too high) came down to normal levels. Over the following two or three weeks, where the diet was accompanied by Dr. Sharon’s gentle (and, as far as I am concerned, rather mystifying) treatment, the beneficial effects stabilized and improved even more. I am confident that Dr. Sharon has shown me a way to definitely get rid of my fragility in the ear/nose/throat area, and I am very grateful.
I had been prone to a sinus infection every 3-4 months since being a teenager. I would take antibiotics and end up with a yeast infection. I was also on allergy medications every spring and fall. After I started Network Chiropractic with Dr. Dubner, I didn’t have one sinus infection for 7 months. That is the longest I had ever gone without a sinus infection. It took a cruise to Alaska, 2 airplane flights, and my husband having a cold to trigger the next sinus infection. When that infection began I came into Dr. Dubner’s office for an adjustment and instantaneously felt the sinus pressure disappear. It was like the doctor waved a magic wand and the pressure disappeared. Wow, so much better than another trip to the medical doctor for antibiotics!
