Massage Therapist Naturopathic Doctor
In 2012, I was diagnosed with arthritis and fibromyalgia. I was put on several different medications. I did not want to be one all of these medications. I really wanted to know what was wrong with me, not be put on toxic medications. I felt like I was too young not to have any answers as to why I was in all of this pain. I literally did not want to walk up my steps to my bedroom, as the pain was so bad. It was very difficult for me to continue to work, but I need to support my family.
In 2013 and 2014, the pain just got worse and worse, so I was just given more medication to try to treat the pain. The medical doctors even put me on anti-seizure meds, but that still did not work. I honestly was getting very discouraged and feeling hopeless. Most of the pain was in my knees, shoulders and hip.
After all of this, the medical doctors recommended me to go to the pain clinic. In the meanwhile, I had a friend tell me about Dr. Valerie Nelson and suggested that I give naturopathic medicine a chance. So, I set up my appointment.
One of the health questions was “do you want Dr. Nelson to pray for you during the appointment?” Of course, I said ‘yes’ because I wanted every chance I could get to feel better.
Dr. Nelson encouraged me that she had been successful utilizing vitamins, mineral and homeopathy therapies and that within 6 weeks we would know if the program was going to work for me. She told me that there would be a number of natural medicines that we would need to try & that I needed to follow the program exactly & we would know soon enough. I had to admit that this was not like other doctors appointments, but again, I was so tired of living daily in chronic pain that I was willing to give it a try. I was very happy that my HSA account would cover the expenses.
Within 2 weeks, my pain had reduced by 25% -- within one month, the pain was reduced by 50% -- by 2 months, the pain reduced by 75% and by the 3rd month, the pain was reduced by 95%.
When I returned for my follow up at the medical doctor’s office, the office staff said “Wow, I can see that going to the pain clinic really helped you out!” I excitedly told them “Nope! The Naturopathic Doctor is who got me better! My medical doctor was so impressed and he saw Dr. Nelson’s husband at a gathering and actually sought him out saying “hey, your wife really helped one of my patients! He then proceeded to ask for some of her business cards because he could see how much I had been helped!
This has been such a life changing experience for me that I tell anyone who is willing to listen!
I’m twenty years old, and spent most of those twenty years mysteriously unable to eat nearly any food without becoming terribly sick. My parents brought me to a lot of different mainstream doctors, who just prescribed medication, which didn’t work.
We had only just moved to the Pittsburgh area when my dad found Dr. Nelson on an Internet search for local naturopaths. I was horribly sick and about to start college, so I decided to investigate further.
Dr. Valerie Nelson is an extremely knowledgeable doctor and herbalist, who can figure out what’s ailing you within only a couple minutes of meeting you, and can also explain it to you in concise everyman’s language. Her faith is also an important part of her practice. I’m a Christian too, so this element (I asked her to pray with me on my first appointment!) was a huge comfort to me.
She ran a test, which concluded I was allergic to practically everything edible—dairy, gluten, wheat, rye, sugar, peanuts, corn…An MD would probably have told me to just avoid these foods for the rest of my life, but she gave me a specially-formulated antidote for those specific allergies that would eventually render me non-allergic. I hadn’t even known that was possible…
Dr. Nelson’s supplements started helping right away. Not only did my food allergies eventually disappear, but other supplements of hers started to help balance my hormones and mood.
I can’t tell you how much these supplements have improved my quality of life. I can go to restaurants with my family now and eat pretty much anything without getting sick to my stomach and having to leave. For the first time in my life, I can enjoy eating as a social experience. I haven’t even mentioned the footbaths. They pull so many toxins out of you and leave you feeling incredibly light and clean.
I am forever grateful to Dr. N, and would recommend her practice highly to anyone experiencing problems like mine. Your life will change. Mine did.
