Kenya’s Story

When Kenya came to see us, she’d been diagnosed with lupus, Lyme Disease and an entire host of other autoimmune disorders. For three years, she’d been living with head-to-toe pain. Her body would break out into such severe rashes that she couldn’t leave her home. Over the years, she had seen over 30 specialists, and when she first consulted with us, she was on 17 different medications.

She had never tried chiropractic, but on the advice of a friend, she booked an appointment at our clinic. Within one month of targeted treatment, this suffering patient was off the majority of her medications. Her rash completely cleared up and her pain diminished. She was soon able to return to work.

Kenya came to understand that if certain interferences could be removed that prevented her body from healing, she would indeed get better. The body would once again become self-regulating, and wellness would replace dis-ease. And that’s exactly what happened.

My pain is practically gone and I have been through 2 season changes without any skin reaction for the first time in many-many years!

I now understand the importance of a balanced spine and healthy nerve system. Chiropractic care has given me back my life!!”
