Testimonials: Acid Reflux

Glenn Morris

My name is Glenn Morris and I am 25 years old. I have always been very active in sports and have been in two car accidents in the last three years. Over the past three years, I have had problems sleeping and have had back pains. I also started having problems with acid reflux. My uncle recommended seeing Dr. Jeff and said he could probably help me. Well, Dr. Jeff did! I have been seeing Dr. Jeff for only a month and I already feel a ton better. I have been sleeping through the whole night, the acid reflux has stopped, and my back pains have stopped as well. I’m so glad I started coming to Dr. Jeff’s office and realize that chiropractic care really works! Thanks a million, Dr. Jeff!

Sarah Elyse Parker

This is a success story about Sarah Elyse Parker. She is a lovely, energetic 2 ½ year old girl who came to Dr. Jeff at the end of August 2000 when, as a parent and decision maker for her health, I had reached a point of frustration with the conventional medical treatment Sarah Elyse was receiving at that time. At age 1, Sarah Elyse was diagnosed with “antibody specific deficiency” which basically means that she does not produce antibodies like an average healthy person of her age. She caught colds and ear infections and kept them for weeks. She had numerous food and environmental allergies that added to her poor health. She was grayish in color and losing weight. We received treatment from an allergist/immunologist for 1 year. Her food allergies were detailed by skin testing and she was given 2 prescription drugs for allergies to be taken twice a day. At age 1 ½, although some improvement in her health was gained, she still did not sleep through the night. She was diagnosed with chronic acid reflux and given another prescription. During this time she also received an experimental treatment of a vaccine to jumpstart her immune system. She passes her second birthday and slowly her health began declining. She had chicken pox for 3 weeks, even though she received the vaccine. She caught a cold virus and was ill for 1 month. All the while, we are told to increase the doses of her medicines and she will improve, but here she is, not thriving, losing weight, and back on square one. The doctor then recommended another experimental vaccine to be given to her to boost immune function, increase her treatment for reflux to 2 teaspoons of Zantac a day, and to begin transfusions once a week of antibodies filtered from the general blood supply. When this treatment was proposed, I did as much research that I could find on the vaccine and the transfusions. I found that the vaccine caused death in several infants and auto-immune disorders and diabetes in children under age of 5. I talked to several parents who had children that received the transfusions of antibodies. They said it was a grueling process for the child (you must be admitted to the hospital and be transfused for 3 hours) and none of these parents said it helped significantly. It was at this time that I met Dr. Jeff at a health talk. After a long discussion and a few e-mails, I decided to bring her in to Dr. Jeff and postpone the more invasive treatments. Sarah Elyse’s transformation has been astonishing and wonderful. Her reflux went away after only 1 week of adjustments. She has only had 2 sick days related to her environmental allergies, but we have been able to manage that with herbs. She no longer takes prescription drugs and has been healthier than her peers at school thus far. Dr. Jeff had some his gentle work and now her healing system is turned on. Not once was Sarah Elyse in pain and she knows Dr. Jeff will never make her take bad tasting medicine or stick her with needles. I, of course, will stick to her program Dr. Jeff laid out for her and wait for more wonderful things to happen. I will always be grateful to Dr. Jeff for his caring way and for taking Sarah Elyse down a path to a healthier way of life.

Paige Tidwell

My problems began six years ago as an over-weight teenager. After losing seventy pounds I began suffering with constant lower back pain, acid reflux, and TMJ. I searched for relief and comfort for many years. I honestly could not find comfort in most everyday activities. Sitting, standing, and sleeping were all painful and uncomfortable activities.

Each of these created many problems and symptoms that were not only a discomfort, but also an expense. I visited many doctors and tried countless remedies. All showed no signs of relief. After talking with co-workers and friends, I decided to give chiropractic care a chance in relieving my pain.

At first, I was a little nervous and unsure, but it soon disappeared after talking with Dr. Davenport and his staff. Over the past couple of months, I have truly realized the effectiveness of chiropractic care. I no longer suffer with acid reflux, TMJ, or constant lower back pain and discomfort as I have in the past. My symptoms have decreased tremendously and I would definitely recommend Dr. Davenport’s Family Chiropractic services to others.

The Rices

On April 2nd, 2003, God gave us our third child…Hannah! Our oldest child is Jacob (8), and middle child Tyler (4). Hannah is now 16 months old. From birth, Hannah has had problems with acid reflux and ear infections. Our original reason to seek chiropractic care was to help my wife’s neck problem. Boy! We were shocked to learn that Dr. Jeff felt that he could help Hannah. Hannah did not sleep at all at night. She may sleep for an hour or two and then she would be up for an hour or two. After her first adjustment, Hannah slept ALL NIGHT! Whenever Hannah has trouble sleeping…Dr. Jeff is put on the schedule for the next day. Hannah’s ears are clear, no acid reflux, and family sleep time. We praise God for our friendship and chiropractic advice we have found with the Davenport Family Chiropractic crew!
