Testimonials and Success Stories

What was it like before you came to see us?

My energy would drop around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. I had trouble functioning. I had excruciating headaches with incoming storms. I had been diagnosed with Raynaud’s disease and I would lose circulation in my fingers and feet with drops in the temperature. It could be over 90 degrees and if I went into a cool pool, I’d have white numb fingers and toes.

How is it now?

I feel good all day. I no longer have headaches and my Raynaud’s is much much better. I recently went to a water park on a windy chilly day. I went swimming even though my whole body was shivering because of the wind. My fingers and toes maintained circulation.

What was it like before you came to see us?

In January 2007, I went to the hospital with chest pains. They thought I had heart problems. My own medical doctor said I had acid reflux. My stomach was swollen and tender. When I came into Dr. Barsoum’s office, he put me on supplements.

How is it now?

I have no pain, no discomfort, and no swelling. I feel great! I am not having any allergy problems either. My energy level is up and I just have a good all over feeling.

What was it like before you came to see us?

Before I started with Dr Barsoum, every day was a hardship for me. I had no energy to even get off the couch. I had a daily headache and my arthritis was at an all-time flare. Dr Barsoum has been treating me for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and a two level cervical fusion. Dr Barsoum was not afraid to take me on as a patient and was sure that he could offer me help.

How is it now?

I still have a two level fusion, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. The big difference is the nutrition therapy, along with the supplements, has brought improved quality to my life. I have so much more energy than before and my headaches are gone. I am not afraid of tomorrow. I have been on so many medications in the past. Using nutrition and daily supplements has been such a huge improvement in my daily health. My body is starting to heal!

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I had long sleepless nights. I would be up four or five times to the bathroom. I experienced hot flashes, back pain and headaches. I ate a LOT of chocolate!

How is it now?

I sleep like a baby and only get up one or two times to go to the bathroom! Sleeping is HUGE! My hot flashes have stopped. My upper back pain and headaches are much better. In fact, the headaches are almost nonexistent. I can go days without chocolate. If I do eat sweets or junk food, I feel lousy, and crave vegetables!

What was it like before you came in to see us?

Before I started coming to AHAC, my days were slow starting, since I didn’t have much energy. I knew I needed something more than what I was getting. I feel Dr Barsoum has been very, very good at what he is doing with me and has got me feeling much better.

How is it now?

I am now working about fifteen hours a day and still have time, and want to come home and walk about a mile and a half with my dog Miss Bella every day. I am going to bed a lot later and getting up feeling good and looking forward to the day.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I had no energy, disrupted sleep, sinus problems, and a general feeling of not feeling well! Two weeks into taking the supplements, everything started to improve, but then I found out that I had to have two major surgeries in ten days, and I couldn’t take any supplements for two months. I was back to where I started with not feeling right. I asked Dr Barsoum if we could start over.

How is it now?

After a month of being treated and back on supplements, I now feel good with more energy, no sinus problems, and overall I am feeling great.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I had very severe hand eczema. My hands were blistered, scaly, callused, raw, and swollen. It affected every aspect of my life, from zipping a zipper, tying shoes, opening a bottle, or buttoning a button. I could no longer do these everyday things! My hands were in pain twenty-four hours a day with severe itching. I had been dealing with this for at least two years. I went to three different doctors and dermatologists and spent hundreds of dollars with no relief. The only thing that helped was steroids.

How is it now?

After only six weeks, the results are amazing! I can use my hands for the first time in years. They look and feel so much better, it’s amazing! Overall I feel better, I am sleeping better. I can open bottles and ZIP A ZIPPER! Hooray! I will continue with my program and hopefully everything will be better and I will be 100%.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I was experiencing digestive pains and problems such as, gas, abdominal pain, acid reflux, etc. I was not able to sleep and when I did sleep, it wasn’t restful. I did not have a complete feeling of well-being.

How is it now?

I have no abdominal problem, no acid reflux, only gas when I eat something I shouldn’t such as refined sugar. I am able to have restful sleep and I feel completely healthy!

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I was in a car accident and had a headache, nightmares, and discomfort in my neck and shoulders for almost two weeks straight.

How is it now?

What a difference! I have not had any headaches since the first adjustment. The tightness and discomfort are gone! I am very thankful for the work that has been done.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

I was dealing with allergic reactions where my throat would start closing and I would have to go to the ER. This had been occurring during the past year. Every time my kids would get sick, I would get sick. For the past three years I had been dealing with sinus congestion. I have dealt with chronic neck and back pain for more than five years and was having constant problems going to sleep and staying asleep. I was using high sugar foods to make me feel better, to the point where I became addicted and experienced many mood surges and had trouble dealing with the day-to-day stresses of life. My PMS Was horrible.

How is it now?

My energy level is up. My sleep is great and it is so nice to sleep through the night! My PMS symptoms are significantly decreased. I am feeling human again, not so much like a zombie anymore. I used to be the top customer for purchasing Biofreeze, but the usage for my neck has gone down greatly.

What was it like before you came in to see us?

My dad has had osteomyelitis (bone infection) in his leg since 1938. The infection would flare up and he would have to be hospitalized for several days. He is 83 years old and dementia is setting in.

How is it now?

Since seeing Dr. Barsoum, my father’s leg looks great. The scars are smaller, and instead of it sinking into his leg, it is almost flat along the skin. The infection is not flaring up. He is also more alert and more active!
