This is a patient of mine, came in with massive skin irritation, flaking, pain, itching and bleeding of his hands. Couldn’t touch anything without pain. Did some testing, found out what was going on, worked to remove the source of the irritation in his GI tract and gave the body the chance to function normally. That’s it. A normal functioning body should be the goal of any doctor. Remove the causes of the inflammation and watch the body flourish!
▪️ Hello everyone! We have gotten this amazing testimonial from April last week and we are thrilled to share this to all of you!
“I wanted to share my before and after success! For over 10 years, I dealt with frequent inflammatory flare ups on one of my knuckles. Being a dental hygienist?, it surely posed its challenges with being able to do my job.
6 years ago, I discovered I had Celiac Disease and went strictly gluten free?????. Though I experienced some improvement, the flare ups continued to happen. ?
I knew there was another layer to work through with my healing journey. So I did the food allergy and sensitivity testing. Finding out the results and eliminating the additional foods???? that were causing inflammation was exactly what I needed to do.
It has been two months that I’ve been diligent with the dietary changes and I haven’t had a single flare up!??”
▪️ April, you have put in a lot of work into your healing journey and we are so proud of you!
▪️ If this story resonates with you or anyone that you know of, please don’t hesitate to tag them!
I wanted to share with everyone something I see a lot, because Dermatologist do not know how to fix this, they just give steroids with no long term benefit. This mans hands got so bad they would bleed and be completely red and hurt to even drive his care. He was suffering for years before he came in, and this is only after a couple months of care.. Skin problems are not from the skin, they are immune problems, so addressing the skin NEVER FINDS THE CAUSE. So by testing him he had inflammation caused by allergens and subluxations (damage to the nervous system) and with avoiding his allergies, taking his medicinal herbs and Chiropractic care here are his results. Please take this to heart, stop using toxic creams that have no chance of long term benefit but do cause long term damaging effects, and find a Chiropractor that understands how to look for CAUSES and you can get these results that are long term..
Hey everyone Dr. Mitch again, now let me tell you about my girl, Sally. I’ve been working with Sally for little over a year now, but I wasn’t the first doctor that she started with. She was diagnosed with lupus, chronic pain, painful periods that included bleeding on her cycle for 3 months, and growing cysts on her ovaries. She was told the cysts would never go away and would possibly need surgery to remove them. Well, Sally thought differently, and sought out a different approach than the traditional medical thinking that wasn’t working for her.
We found a whole lot of inflammation that was source of all her problems and started addressing the inflammation right away. After a short time, Sally told me something that I will never forget and is one of my favorite things. Sally told me that after just two months of The Wellness Way Approach, she didn’t have any cramping, any mood swings, or signs that she was going to have her cycle. Her cycle just showed up and after a week it was done with her body was feeling normal again. A normal cycle! Also, her pain was significantly lowered, and NO MORE CYSTS on her ovaries. The cysts they said would never go away without surgery!
About 10 months later, she went to her medical doctor to get her autoimmune and lupus markers checked. They all went back to normal. This type of fantastic news is often unheard of, but we think differently. We found out what was creating inflammation for her and helped her rebuild her body, so it started to return to normal function. Now Sally is looking great and most importantly, feeling even better. All of this was possible because of Sally! Sally disagreed with the status quo, thought differently, and we are working together to let her take control of her health!
Hey Dr. Mitch here, I want you all to hear about Angie’s story.
First off, it took Angie some time to take the plunge to come and see me. I initially met her at a small lunch and learn in the community, afterwards we were able to speak to one another about the symptoms that Angie was suffering from. She informed me that she was a triple negative breast cancer survivor but had been dealing with IBS for years.
One thing to note is Angie does work in a high stress professional job and as many of you know dealing with IBS, high stress often makes this worse. Angie was frustrated, she had been to many different doctors and had tried many different diets with the promise that this was the answer to her suffering. However, to Angie’s disappointment, none of these helped Angie long term. Her diets worked for a little bit, but eventually everything reverted back to her chronic IBS symptoms.
After speaking with Angie, I knew that The Wellness Way was the answer to her suffering. None of the many doctors that she had seen ever tested her “specifically”; meaning no one ever tested her to see what was going on in her intestinal track. But as I said earlier though, it took Angie a bit to come see me; almost 6 months went by before Angie finally came in for an appointment. She was skeptical because of all the other failed promises made to her previously.
After having an honest discussion, I asked her “has anyone ever tested things specifically for you and do any of your other doctors have a plan of care for you?” You guessed it, her answer was no. From there on, we hit the ground running. Initially we started some simple tests on Angie, low and behold we found a few things needing attention. We were able to find Angie’s inflammatory triggers, which allowed her to start feeling better. We didn’t use any crazy diet, there was no magic pill, just simple specific testing for Angie.
It has been over a year that Angie has had any issues, she lives her life to the fullest, travels socially and for work without any worry in the world when she might have another attack. It does make me a little sad that I don’t get to see Angie as often, however that means she’s feeling better and that’s a good thing. Thank you, Angie, for believing in me and that there was still hope!
Hey guys, Dr. Jason from TWW Green Bay, let me introduce you to Owen! I got to meet this young man because he was given a diagnosis and a “watch and see” prognosis and was set to get routine bloodwork over and over until bad enough to treat medically.
He was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and also has positive markers for another autoimmune. He was also hospitalized with mono due to the Epstein-Barr virus.
His endocrinologist believed that none of his symptoms were interconnected and not even in the same family of issues and that diet can not help reverse or slow the unavoidable outcome fo the hashimoto’s. And if you know about our Swiss Watch principle, you know how silly that is!
Well…his mother DISAGREED and brought him in to see us. I’m super happy to say that even just avoiding his food allergies, cleaning up his gut and getting him adjusted, he has lost 17 pounds of inflammation!!! 17 pounds!!!! How? Well without the stress from the allergies and strengthening the immune system, he doesn’t need his inhaler nearly as much and hasn’t had to take the steroid inhaler for anything!
Now he doesn’t have stomach pain before bed, his legs have stopped twitching at night and energy levels are off the charts!!!
After 11 years of infertility, exploratory surgeries and rounds of IVF, I was feeling done. It was hard wanting to be pregnant, seeing pregnant strangers or being with a friend who was expecting a baby. I had been told by the IVF doctors I’d never be able to carry a baby in my womb. They told me I would have to look into a surrogate or adopt. I wanted to have a hysterectomy. If I couldn’t use my female organs, I didn’t want them. When we had found The Wellness Way and Dr. Patrick, a cancelation enabled us to get in right away. I knew it was meant to be!
We learned a whole new lifestyle at The Wellness Way. The approach was completely different. From all that we learned, I have referred my sister, a neighbor, people with cancer and those with other health challenges. While some people are opposed to trying anything different, others have great results with The Wellness Way. We had several people who were skeptical and told us it wouldn’t work. I faced my own challenge. I worked in the dairy industry. Due to my allergies, I had to eliminate dairy from my diet. I often heard “don’t bite the hand that feeds you;” but I had to do what was right for my body.
We now have our second baby and weren’t even trying – it just happened. We weren’t trying but we also weren’t not trying. We figured since it took 11 years to have our son, he would be our only child. Then I started waking up with nausea and wasn’t feeling well. I was 8 weeks along before I realized I was pregnant.
When I share my Wellness Way story, a lot of people are concerned about insurance coverage. I tell them all it’s worth it. If this is what you want, and this is your dream in life, then there really is no dollar amount. When we went through IVF, we spent tens of thousands of dollars. All the medications were out of pocket as well. When I talked to my insurance company about the IVF, I was told having a child isn’t a necessity of life and they wouldn’t cover it. Now, I tell people to put that money toward fixing your body the right way. Let it work the way it should and treat it right. You only have one body.
