Dear Dr. Caroline:
Lisa and I just wanted to say thank you for your assistance and support with Janna’s health over the last 4 months. She just told us a week or so ago, that she is happier personally and physically and feels better than she has in years. We celebrated her 22nd birthday yesterday and she is doing great.
Janna first came to see you in February of 2013 for assistance in managing tension along with joint pain that we and she believed were associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and fibromyalgia. This was because she had been diagnosed by other doctors with Rheumatoid Arthritis as well as Fibromyalgia. Her treatments basically were through prescription medication for RA, fibro, sleep assistance, anxiety and depression. She was taking 8 prescription medications, with 4 of those having warnings of very dangerous and serious side effects. This has always been concerning for us with Janna being only 21 years old and having to take so much medication.
You took time unlike all of her other doctors to spend time and effort in understanding and diagnosing what Janna’s problems really were vs the traditional doctors’ plans of prescribing medicines.
Through your sessions with her, you assisted her in how she looked at things and how she should manage her health. Everything from what she put in her body, to exercise and her outlook on life. This change assisted her in reaching the conclusion that she did not want to be on all these medications as it was impossible to tell if one was helping or not. We are so happy to now have her off of all these prescribed medications and that she is healthier and happier than she had been in years. She no longer is suffering from symptoms of RA or fibro and is living the life that a 22 year old should be living.
Thank you for your help in assisting her through your chiropractic care, brain core assessment, and wellness management. Thank you for taking time, unlike most any other doctor to dig into finding out what is really the issue vs a medical plan that is through prescription medication.
