This week I was blessed to meet with Angie and Derek and look at their new 6 month x-rays. Angie explained that she no longer needed her walker, but also that she had been able to get off of heavy pain killing medication, and anti-anxiety meds too! I could see the life and excitement in their eyes as they explained what they had been through. Angie had been to see 30 previous doctors who said they couldn’t help her or had given up. Derek added doctors had also given up on him too. It is an amazing blessing for us to be a part of their story and see them set free to truly live!! Two weeks ago Angie posted a comment on Google,
“Hey everyone I’m gonna tell you my story. At 25 years old I was forced into a walker 3 months after my daughter was born in 2010. I had an MRI done, my main nerve on my right side was 75% pinched off and I was told I need surgery or I would loose full mobility. I had surgery where they removed the disc and tried to repair the nerve. They expected me to be walking after six months, only they were wrong, I was still in the walker and mobility getting worse. My feet were swollen really bad. I went to so many doctors, all of which didn’t want nothing to do with my case. I was referred to physio which they tried for 4 weeks where they used machines like ultrasound to decrease inflammation, then the shock machine and had asked me to sit on a rubber disc. After that I could not move. I was in tears and they were almost ready to call an ambulance, but she said they could try acupuncture which when they did, I was able to get up and get home but with a painful struggle so they didn’t want to do anymore treatment. Being told at 29 years old I would be like this for life, I was very depressed. I was advised not to go to chiropractors, but a friend of mine that I went to public school with happened to see my struggle and told me about New Life, but I didn’t know what to do cause of being told not to, so I said thanks for the offer and I might look into it, but it never got it done. Last year this friend happened to see a picture of my feet that were swollen really bad, and she persisted that I go see Brad at New Life. This lady went beyond her means and did something that touched my heart. She didn’t have to, but she paid for my xrays and my exam and got me into New Life. I went there and they were very nice and caring. I had my exam, then Dr Brad brought me to tears when finally he said he had hopes they could do something. I was shocked, finally one doctor had hope! We had made an appointment to get the family checked, so now my husband and daughter go too. Now I think we have only been going for 7-8 months and I am very happy to say with happy tears that after 7 years of being young and not having mobility, I have been walker free for almost 3 months now. I still can’t do lots, but I’m sure I will get there. Being able to just walk without a walker is the best feeling I have felt in years, so enough said. I think everyone gets it – don’t put it off, if you are tired of the “I can’t do” this feeling, then reach out to New Life and New Life will reach out to you. I want to say thank you to this very kind lady who didn’t give up and pretty much made me go, lol. It truly has done wonders, thank you Kim!!! And now thank you to the amazing New Life staff for doing what they do everyday to give us all a chance for a new life, you all rock. Thank you Dr Brad for your chiropractic care ;)”
Here’s what you should know,
- It was a persistent friend who got Angie and Derek here – is there someone you need to write down for the Gift of New Life and encourage them until they get here?
- Both Angie and Derek had amazing results by 6 months and I was excited to show great changes to their x-rays too. They arrived ahead of time, every time for their adjustments – they did not miss. Some of you have been slack with your schedule – if you want results, get serious about this and get on track.
- Summer holidays are coming – everyone needs to see Sasha or Ashley to book make-up appointments (ie. Spinal subluxations don’t take holidays, so you’ve got to stay on track!)
