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!

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!

2004_Spring_flowers

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.

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.

San Jose Patient Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Weight Loss, Back Pain, Hand Pain, Sleep Problems, Sugar Cravings and Stress Success Story through Cupertino Chiropractor at Dubner Chiropractic

Monday, December 8th, 2014

I have been a patient of Dubner Chiropractic for about 2 months now. Before coming here I would take 50 units or more of insulin a day for a few years for my diabetes. I also have had a severe condition of fibromyalgia for the past 25+ years. I was on 8 different medications to help with pain, diabetes, blood pressure, kidney and cholesterol. I suffered from liver damage and stage 2 kidney disease. Prior to attending treatment with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I had seen a primary care physician and a beneficial chiropractor, but not much changed.

Immediately after coming to Dubner Chiropractic, I saw results. Within two weeks, I got off all of my insulin. I am off all of my other medications except one. My pain is virtually gone. Before, I experienced pain all over. Now I am capable of moving with great freedom and in addition, my sleep has improved. I have lost 27 pounds and 3 ½ inches at my waist since my first day here, and my blood sugar numbers are now in the 90’s with no medication. I also no longer have sugar cravings. Since being here, I have noticed that I have been much calmer, a lot happier, relieved, and more positive, and over all I feel better about myself.

With the combination of Dr. Sharon’s acupressure and Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic adjustments, I am now insulin free and I am happier with life itself. On top of their great work, the doctor’s emotional work, encouragement and support have definitely made the experiences I have had here worth continuing. I recommend and already have recommended these doctors to others. It will not only help symptoms go away, but it will save your life. I have tried a lot of things, but this is by far the most effective – even my medical doctors are supportive of it.

In addition to having one on one time with the doctors, their in-house health talks and lectures have brought me to understand more about what is good and what is bad for the human body. My dog, believe it or not, has also improved in health. Though most say not to, we feed our 11 year old dog from the table, and since my husband and I have changed our eating habits, our dog is getting happier and healthier with us. I am happy here. I feel good coming and feel better when I leave due to such great treatment and service.

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.

I came to the Dubners after dealing with chronic nightly heartburn for 8 – 10 years. Previously, I had visited a doctor who performed an orthoscopic procedure on me. The procedure revealed that I had a loose valve, for which the medical doctor recommended surgery as the only way to fix the heartburn issues. Surgery was not an appealing option for me, so instead I took Pepcid nightly to bring down the heartburn – until I found the Dubners.

Since visiting Dubner Chiropractic, I have had so many improvements! I have now been heartburn free for 8 months! I threw out all of my antacids. Dr. Sharon helped me beat my caffeine and sugar addictions that were the major causes of the heartburn I had been suffering with. I’m now sleeping better. I have more energy and clarity, and I eat much better. With all of my improvements I have a more positive outlook on life. I was very impressed with Dr. Sharon’s muscle testing. I love coming into the office and being greeted by their friendly staff. I am so happy that with the Dubners’ help, I’ve been able to avoid surgery. I tell everyone about my experience with Dubner Chiropractic because I have had nothing but positive results!

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!
