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.

Los Altos Hills Patient, Bloating, Acid Reflux, Heartburn. Success Story Through Cupertino Chiropractor.

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

After suffering from severe and inexplicable bloating for over a week, I went to see my medical doctor. She was unable to offer any real explanation for my condition and recommended Miralax and a CT Scan, which seemed both unhelpful and excessive. I immediately came in to see the Dubners.

Dr. Sharon discovered the culprit! After my first treatment, I experienced immediate relief and within 3 treatments the bloating was gone completely.

We then began to address my digestion on a deeper level, focusing on my acid reflux. I had tried for years with my doctor, a gastroenterologist, and a different chiropractor, and suffered excruciating pain with disastrous results. Following the Dubners’ recommendations, I was able to stop the medication with ease.

My symptoms are cleared up entirely as long as I continue to eat well and be healthy. I am thrilled to say that after 15 years of acid reflux, I am now entirely off of Prilosec OTC – something I thought would never happen!

I feel so relieved to be free and not be dependent on that medication for the rest of my life!

I whole-heartedly recommend 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

Friday, January 15th, 2016

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!

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

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

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!

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

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

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!

Mountain View Chiropractic Patient Sensory Integration Disorder, Asperger’s, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Issues, Hyperactivity, and Stress Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Max has always been an intense child, but it wasn’t until he was almost 4 that we met a new preschool teacher who recognized that what had been going on with him could be described as Sensory Integration Disorder, or sensory processing issues.  Max hated his hair being touched. He would push other kids when they tried to hug him.  He would scream to try to block out loud noises.  He craved constant motion, or zoning out with screen time.  He would shriek “Mommy, don’t look at me!” and avoid eye contact.  If the routine changed, even slightly, we had to brace ourselves for a big emotional meltdown.

Grateful to have some idea of what to call what was going on with him, I started about nine months of research and negotiations with our pediatrician and health insurance about occupational therapy and getting an evaluation for autism. The more I read, the more he seemed to fit the pattern of what used to be called Asperger’s.

Meanwhile, I began my own healing journey at Dubner Chiropractic.  After seeing how much my health and energy transformed through Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s care, and how gentle they are, I realized I had nothing to lose by bringing Max to them.

After the first visit, Max was hooked.  I couldn’t believe that he could sit still long enough for the network chiropractic treatments, but he loved them.  He says, “Mommy that makes my brain feel so good.”  Through Dr. Sharon’s guidance, we’ve cut out all processed foods, including gluten and sugar, and Max’s mood and energy is much more stable.  For the first time, he was calm enough to sit on the couch and look at a book by himself.  For the first time, he happily occupied himself with imaginative play in the bathtub, without needing us to entertain him.  He’s acting sweeter and more patient.

By the time we made it to the Autism evaluation with the clinical psychologists, his behavior, health and mood had all significantly improved.  They decided that his symptoms don’t rise to the level of warranting a diagnosis.  I was thrilled, but not because of the lack of label (because I was willing to get one if it meant that we could have access to treatments that might help him), but because I could already see what a profound improvement Max had made.

I’ve already recommended the Dubners to every friend I can think of, and I would completely recommend their gentle treatments for any child with sensory issues or Autism Spectrum Disorder.

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.
