Prolotherapy for Rotator Cuff Pull / Tear

Cured

Don’t need surgery on my rotator cuff

By Texan on May 14, 2018 at 7:50 pm

These prolotherapy shots fixed my shoulder. I’m a 70-year-old male and I pulled one of the muscles in my shoulder about two years ago. I was in a lot of pain and couldn’t do to much physically with that arm and I couldn’t sleep on that side. Incredibly, it’s fine now. Much better than having to go through surgery.

Acupuncture for Ulcer

Some improvement

I think it helped my ulcer

By Ralphy62 on May 12, 2018 at 3:41 pm

It was hard to tell if time healed it or if it was the treatment. I also was taking some Chinese herbs she gave me. I thought the treatments were very relaxing and sometimes I would fall asleep.

Dental Ozone Therapy for Dental Bone Loss

Large improvement

I regrew significant dental bone!

By Mijita on May 1, 2018 at 3:18 pm

I had dental bone-loss from a long standing gap in my teeth. I had another dentist suggest a bone graft. I started going to a more “holistic” dentist who wanted to try dental ozone therapy instead. It worked. After the 6 weeks we did an X-ray and the area had much more bone filling in the gap than before.

Vitamin C Therapy for Flu / Influenza

Large improvement

Hope to never have to endure the flu again

By Healthygirl on April 27, 2018 at 6:57 pm

My Integrative MD had mentioned that at his office, they do Vitamin C IV drips and when the flu is coming on is a great time to get one. So, the next time I felt myself coming down with the flu, I made an appointment. It took an hour or two to get through the bag, but by the end of it, it was clear I was going to breeze through this bout with the flu! I did feel mildly unwell for a couple days, but have never had a flu play-out so easily. Sometimes you just don’t have time to be down for a week. I highly recommend!

NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) for Allergies, General

Large improvement

I can eat many more foods now than before NAET

By Cita on April 27, 2018 at 3:17 pm

Anytime I would each bananas, avocados, strawberries and many other foods, my throat and ears would always itch and I would get sinus congestion. NAET really did remove those sensitivities. There are ten food/substances that have to addressed first but after I went through treatment on those, I was able to be treated for more specific foods. Even all these years later, I am still able to eat these foods without reaction.

Dry Needling for Back Pain

Large improvement

Like giving your muscle a "chill pill"

By Mijita on May 1, 2018 at 6:11 am

I had been having mid back pain on and off for years – I think related to being pregnant and all the ways that my body was shifted and strained carrying babies. I finally went to see a physical therapist who came highly recommended. She introduced me to dry needling as part of her treatment. She targeted several of the tight, sore muscles with her needle – which is – I think – basically an acupuncture needle. She sticks it in and goes pretty deep with it and then does this kind of twist. It was the most bizarre sensation because at a certain point, the muscle just completely relaxes. I walked out of there feeling like all the muscles that she treated had just been to the spa! I also did a series of exercises as part of my treatment that were designed to restore balance. On the whole the treatment worked and I’m so glad I broke-down and saw someone, but especially for immediate relief, dry needling works.

Dental Ozone Therapy for Tooth Pain

Large improvement

Well worth doing

By Mijita on May 1, 2018 at 10:04 am

My daughter fractured a lower front tooth a few years ago that caused quite a bit of pain when she would chew on it. Also very sensitive to cold. The ozone therapy (because it was cold), was a bit painful for her to receive, but it has definitely helped with healing the nerve. Took a couple days for her to notice the difference.

Infraspinatus Respiratory Reflex (IRR) for Asthma

Large improvement

Very helpful

By Healthygirl on April 29, 2018 at 9:53 am

I had outgrown asthma as a child, but it came back with a vengeance a few years ago. My rescue inhaler was not working well enough so that I could sleep at night because the feeling of suffocation would keep me from being able to fall asleep. I was searching for an effective alternative asthma treatment and came across IRR on one of the local integrative MD’s sites. The treatment took about 10 minutes and involved the doctor injecting lidocaine (which is a numbing solution) into a certain acupuncture point on each of my shoulder blades. By the time I sat up on the table, I could feel all the extra air going into my lungs. They had tested my blood oxygen level with a pulse oximeter before and right after the IRR. It had jumped from 93 to 98% which is really incredible!
My asthma is well under control now (still at a 98% blood oxygen), though still room for improvement. I’ve been wanting to eliminate all need for asthma medication and have been back for three more IRRs over 2.5 years, but without noticing the big jump in improvement like that first one.

Chiropractic for Colic

Cured

Try chiropractic before medication!

By Healthygirl on April 27, 2018 at 2:33 pm

At about a month old, my baby daughter began to have a pretty rough time, especially in the evenings. She would cry for an hour or two and we would bounce around the living room trying to ease her pain. The usual over-the-counter aids weren’t helping. Friends were suggesting various prescriptions that had helped their babies, but I just hated to give such a new little body medication! I read about chiropractic treatment of colic with as good or better success rates than with various meds, so I found a pediatric chiropractor. She said that the birth process can regularly leave a baby’s spine sublaxated and it’s just enough to interrupt the nerve-impulses between the brain and the digestive system.
I was nervous to get started because I was just thinking about the cracking and popping that usually goes on when I go to see the chiropractor for myself, however all the chiropractor’s adjustments on my daughter were completely silent and actually looked like she wasn’t doing anything at all! I was holding my daughter the whole time and the DC was just going up my baby’s pine with her fingers and then up to the crook behind her ear. She said this is the place that when things get “off” really interferes with digestion.
That evening, to my surprise, my daughter’s fussiness was cut-down by half! It was clear the adjustment had really helped. We went back for one visit every week for four more weeks and each time, her fussiness was cut down by half. I was thrilled. Five weeks is amazing to completely get rid of colic and without medication.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy for Amenorrhea (Absent Menstruation)

Cured

A true miracle

By Mijita on April 26, 2018 at 4:04 pm

I was twenty-one at the time and it had been about two years since my last period. It was suggested to me to “get on the pill” to essentially induce a monthly period, but I didn’t like the idea of potentially covering-up a problem. I travelled to another state to visit a well-known integrative clinic that did two days of testing. One discovery was that I had antibodies to ovarian tissue in my blood. My doctor prescribed Intravenous hydrogen peroxide twice a week for a month which I was able to do in a city closer to home. The hydrogen peroxide IV involved sitting in a backroom of the clinic in a lounge chair with an IV bag. Each session took about two hours to complete and was painless except for the needle going in. Much to my shock, one week to the day of my first Hydrogen Peroxide IV, my period returned! All I can say that there was no placebo working here because I had no expectation that this treatment would work! Rather, I was following orders from my parents and this all seemed very experimental to me.
All that happened twenty years ago, but I have had regular menstruation ever since. I also have two children and had no trouble getting pregnant in the least! I have never had a follow-up blood test to determine whether the ovarian antibodies still exist in my blood. But for what it might be worth, my IV bag had written on it” H202, Mg, Mn” .

NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) for Neck Pain

Some improvement

Finally got some relief after many years

By Cita on April 27, 2018 at 2:44 pm

I had quite of bit of pain for many years after an auto-accident when I was 20. After trying various other remedies, I discovered this unique chiropractic style where the doctor just adjusts the one vertebrae at the top of your neck. It was surprisingly relaxing. It did take a while before I noticed it was helping.

Prolotherapy for Back Pain

Some improvement

The biggest help to my back pain

By Cita on April 27, 2018 at 2:53 pm

Prolotherapy really helped my back pain. It was interesting because the doctor used live x-ray to see just where to do the injections. It was uncomfortable to have it done and I was sore for a few days, but I think it was worth it in the long-run.

Inhaled Glutathione for Mold in Lungs

Cured

An integrative therapy miracle

By Cita on April 28, 2018 at 3:31 pm

I was diagnosed with pneumonia that I was not recovering from. The doctor eventually did a biopsy on my lungs which showed that I had mold growing in my lungs. I was 64 at the time and told that I would basically be sick for the rest of my life with lung-related problems. I was hospitalized for 5 days and put on steroids. I was referred to specialist who tried to keep me as healthy as he could. I had pneumonia a second time and at that point, I chose to look for an alternative treatment.
I went to the northwest to get counseled by an integrative physician there. I was told to nebulize glutathione and sodium chloride twice a day. After four months, I was completely healed of all lung problems. I returned to the doctor at the hospital about 6 months later and was told that I had beautiful lungs and he wondered if I had a been an athlete! 🙂 (no!) When you considered that I could have died from treatment they wanted to do on me, its amazing that I was able to heal this in such an easy, natural way.

Chiropractic for Occipital Neuralgia

Some improvement

It was worth a try

By courkedi on April 29, 2018 at 6:10 pm

I had numbness and a slight sensation of heat in the back of my head, near my neck. Our family practitioner MD diagnosed it as ON, and had no recommendations other than surgery….! I visited my chiropractor, who manually adjusted my neck (meaning he did not just use the clicker activator), and although he was able to achieve quite a bit of movement, half a dozen appointments later, I saw very minimal improvement to the neuralgia.
