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.

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.

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!

San Jose Patient with Diabetes, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Foot Pain, Shoulder Pain, Low Back, Depression, and Stress Chiropractic Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractic Office

For the several years I had been having pain throughout my body and specifically the arch of my foot, my right shoulder, and low back. The pain was something I tolerated as I lead a busy lifestyle and my diet was often less than ideal, which contributed to my High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol and High Blood Sugar. I went to my medical doctor looking for solutions to my pain and other ailments and he promptly handed me prescriptions. After taking those pills, I began to experience many of the side effects, including liver problems.

I was at the end of my rope with my health and was looking for a support group with similar issues as mine on Meetup.com when I came across the doctor’s meetup. I was intrigued and signed up for their Home Healthcare Class. I learned a lot valuable information in their class and decided to have a consultation with the doctors.

It has been a few weeks since my first visit and I feel more positive, less depressed and less stressed. After the second week of receiving care from Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon I was able to take half as much medicine because my blood pressure and blood glucose levels had lowered significantly. I even lost 7 pounds! The pain in my foot is completely gone and every day my shoulder and back are getting better.

I was skeptical at first and the results show that Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s treatments work. My goal of getting off prescriptions once felt overwhelming and unattainable and now, are not only achievable, but are the starting point for lifelong health and wellness.

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.

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

In November of 2004 I was involved in an auto accident and was rear ended by an 1800-GOT-JUNK truck. I had excruciating pain in my mid and lower back, so my grandmother rushed me over to see Dr. Allen to get an adjustment. (more…)
