Patient Success Stories
The following are copies of letters that our patients have shared with us. The names have been changed but the content has not.
I was scared to death. I had never been to a chiropractor before and didn’t know what to expect. Both Hollie and Dr. Holland put me at ease right away. After one adjustment, my pain went away and has not returned. I feel so much better. Thank you so much.
I have seen chiropractors many times in the past. I moved to Corvallis and needed to establish a relationship with a new chiropractor. I tried several but each one wanted to do a huge exam, take lots of x-rays and put me on a “program.” I had been with my old chiropractor for years and was pretty aware of my condition. Dr. Holland called my old chiropractor and got some information from him and then proceeded to do a brief examination to determine what my present condition was. He adjusted me and told me to return whenever I needed to. It was like being with my old chiropractor again.
Dr. Holland has been my chiropractor for over 15 years. I have seen multiple chiropractors in my lifetime and Dr. Holland has always done a superb job. He’s attentive and listens to my aches and pains. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Linn/Benton counties.
Dr. Holland is absolutely wonderful. He’s competent, compassionate, and honest. I have the lingering effects of back and neck pain from an auto accident many years ago. Getting adjusted is the only thing that actually treats the pain at its source. No matter what kind of pain I walk in with, I walk out feeling better. The results last longer than any medication. He’s reasonably priced and does work with insurance. He is knowledgeable about supplements and nutrition but isn’t a salesman. I have had nothing but positive experiences at Holland Chiropractic and I recommend them highly to anyone seeking excellent chiropractic care.
I had been hurting for months. My primary doctor tried different medicines but nothing seemed to stop the pain. He sent me to physical therapy for three months. I had more movement but the pain was still there. My doctor said I would probably have to have surgery. That’s when a friend of mine told me about Dr. Holland. I’ve always been skeptical about chiropractic. I heard the stories about how they keep you coming back and about the pain when you get adjusted. I’m here to say that none of that was true. Dr. Holland’s office is warm and friendly. Hollie is very knowledgeable and helpful with insurance and financial concerns. Dr. Holland carefully examined me and gently adjusted the area that was causing my pain. I left his office pain free – the first time I
had been pain free in months. I went back two more times to make sure the pain didn’t return. Thank you Dr. Holland and Hollie for such a pleasant experience.
Asyra is my go-to for maintaining my health and well-being. I treated myself to my first Asyra in June 2013. Now, as a 65-year-old, I cannot imagine maintaining my health without the gifts of Asyra. Beginning in 2013, I have been averaging once every six months, more or less frequently depending on my current needs or desires.
Some (but definitely of all) of my symptoms that have been eliminated by the homeopathic drops as a result of the Asyra analysis include:
Years of low potassium and magnesium – Gone!
High blood pressure – Gone!
Urinary tract infection – Gone!
Daily floating brown spots in my eyes – Gone!
Impaired hearing in left ear – Gone!
Multiple blisters on the bottoms of my feet during hot weather – Gone!
I believe most important, I am regularly checked for the slightest beginning occurrence of life altering and/or life threatening diseases, such as cancer. I live my daily life with the freedom and confidence that cancer has been wiped off my “To Do” list! And that alone is worth everything to me.
I am excited that I am feeling better after a couple of days. I have not taken my allergy pill at night since I started taking the drops. I have less aches all over right now. I have noticed that I am back to my old self getting in and out of the van and walking faster.
My son was having meltdowns at the drop of a hat. If he heard something he didn’t like, he would melt down, throw a fit, scream, shout and throw things. This was a daily occurrence. Since taking the drops, he has only had two meltdowns and it’s been over two weeks. He’s much better.
My fingernails were ridged and peeling. After a few days of taking the drops the peeling stopped and the ridges began to disappear. I’m still taking the drops and my fingernails look like they did many years ago.
“Optimistically skeptical” is that a sensible observation? Probably not, but Asyra has proved healing where all other treatment failed. Wow – no lightening nor thunder, but a progressive peaceful dispensation. This spring has been the FIRST in my life that I have had consistent “good days” – and no breathing anxiety with the sight of a lawn mower. Dr. Holland’s indescribable….but I’ll try….demeanor & obvious educated,
experienced care has been both exceptional and a joy. He explained all that I inquired of. Basically, I could research as much or little as I sought to, but in the end, I’m not of full understanding as to why this all works (Asyra), but it does! Oooh happy day….month….year….LIFE.
So many hopes. So many dreams. Yet I could see my child slipping away from me. While “M” had always been extremely sensitive and prone to tantrums, unable to deviate from expectations of what the day would bring, things seemed to be getting worse as “M” grew. Being a pawn in a challenging divorce did not help, and seemed to be “M’s” tipping point. “M” did not act out at Dad’s or school. “M” did quite well in elementary school, with no behavior issues and was considered as leader in the classroom. However “M” had gotten the first lower scores on the report card.
Yet at home with me, “M’s” Mom, “M” became fore verbally abusive, with fits of hostile anger – these fits became more physical and were leading to safety concerns at home. The best way to describe “M” is “Indigo child.” I had tried conversations about anger with “M”, parenting and self-help books, soothing, calming kids music, traditional therapy for myself and “M”, praying and Shamanic intervention. Yet things kept escalating.
One day my child was ill with a fever and “M” realized there was a choice in how to behave when feeling angry. “M” decided to work harder in school and to make better choices at home. Things improved, but “M” was still extremely challenged as anger towards me, the person “M” felt safest with, had become a habit. Because my child had begun to accept responsibility for the anger he was experiencing, I decided to try one more avenue. “M” agreed to try visiting Dr. Holland and have an Asyra and TFT performed, and “M” was given drops from Dr. Holland.
The NEXT DAY, I noticed a change in “M”. My child came back to me. “M” was no longer angry, but affectionate. “M” seemed to better be able to navigate emotions and when confronted with something that had previously caused great anxiety and angry outbursts, “M” is now able to look at the issue and decide not to become angry. As of now, it’s been 7 weeks. There are still some rare outburst, but the habit of exploding into anger is gone. We are no longer tiptoeing around “M” in the household.
I had not informed “M’s” teacher about the drops or about “M’s” behavior issues at home. I was very surprised when “M” brought home the report card showing the lsas two months term, most of this time on drops from Dr. Holland, as receiving the nearly best marks possible, a marked improvement from the previous term. My child’s teacher even commented that “M” had seemed happier in the classroom, and had less errors in math and huge improvements in writing. I know that “M” has been working VERY hard at school to improve. I also know that because my child now had the ability to make a CHOICE before becoming angry, that “M” has been working very hard at home to make the appropriate choice for anger outlet. However, I feel those drops and the TFT have given “M” the ability to make a choice prior to becoming angry.
I am so thankful to God and to Dr. Holland for providing the service that he does. Because of Asyra and TFT, I haave my child back, who is running and laughing and silly and so much happier.
A Thankful Parent
Most of my life has been touched in some way by sickness in some form…..
Starting at the young age of 21 with complications from ulcerative colitis through the years to the present time at the young age of 67 with an autoimmune disease afflicting my liver and my life as well. Before Asyra testing I had severe bouts of weakness and intestinal upsets on a frequent basis. So, when a dear friend suggested that I try Asyra testing done by Dr. Holland, I was willing to give it a try. I must say that I never thought it would make much difference, as other things I tried failed in the past.
Looking back when I first started almost two years ago to now, amazes me at the progress I’ve made physically. I was even able to bounce back fairly quickly from flu complications causing a three and a half day stay in ICU in the local hospital – then rebuilding strength once again from the very bottom to where I am today.
I know for a fact that the Asyra testing is the reason I am doing so well. I walk my dog Maggie and do bike rides for a good distance – plus have energy for the rest of the day. I love being able to go and do things and am so thankful for every moment I get to enjoy my grandkids, great grandkid, and the rest of my family as well. How great is that?
Pretty awesome I think.
It was so nice of you to write and ask how I am doing. I am happy to reply that I am doing very well. It is wonderful to be able to eat tomatoes and potatoes again without the slightest hint of a migraine. I really cannot believe it. I started out slowly at first and a few days ago I ate more pizza with tomato sauce than is good for anyone. I have been able to increase my daily dose of natural estrogens to a high enough level tht the hot flashes are down to about 5-10 per day, down from about 40. Hurray!
The best part is that I seem to have more energy than I have had in the last few years. Perhaps this is because my body is no longer beleaguered by a hundred sensitivities. You tell me. And though I may never understand how or why the NAET works, I am living proof that it does. Many thanks to you for making this available.
At this time, I am just happy to be feeling so good and look forward to a more free and productive year than I have had in quite some time. Thanks again.
My five year old son had daily headaches, difficulty breathing and chronic coughing. After treatment with NAET, his breathing improved, his coughing stopped and his headaches went away. He now plays outside with his brothers and sisters without any problems. I now have my healthy little boy back. Thank you so much.
This is a letter from a concerned daughter regarding her 84 year old father. They contacted this office a few months earlier, just after her dad had been placed on Hospice care. He was weak and frail. His hair was white. His skin was gray with yellowish overtones. He was losing weight and unable to eat. He was told that he had a liver condition and a pancreatic tumor. He had diabetes and was taking insulin. At the time of this letter, her father had recovered significantly. He was eating and gaining weight. His color is back and he stands upright, usually with a smile on his face, His hair is now dark brown, The consensus is that the liver and pancreas are now functioning normally.
Couldn’t wait to tell you about dad’s appointment with Dr. ****. Boy did we have fun!!
Dr. was amazed at how well dad is doing. ALL the blood results are in the normal range. He was so pleased! Finally he says, “Just what are you guys doing?” We told him that we were doing alternative health stuff and that dad was taking lots of supplements. We told him that we were working with you guys. His response? A BIG smile and “Whatever it all is, keep it up, don’t change a thing!!” He was very sincere about it. He said that it definitely wasn’t anything that western medicine was doing, so just keep it up! This was a triumphant moment for us, and for you vicariously. I have been just waiting for this to happen!!
Dr. said that he felt we ought to go back to the pre-illness routine and start acting like a healthy guy. So he wants dad to come back after the first of the year and have a physical. He said he wasn’t at all worried about the blood sugar. Dad had asked him about keeping an eye on it at home and Dr. said not to worry about it. It has been low for so long now that he is perfectly happy checking the average every 3 months or so.
I would like to say that when I first started NAET, I did not know what it would do for me by the time I was finished. I was having problems with inner ear infections that were becoming a regular occupant every spring and I had been to all the doctors and taken all the medicines.
One of the main reasons I decided to try this approach was because of my allergies. I still had a month or so to go and had not even been treated directly for the specific allergies and I was already breathing better and was not so stuffed up in the morning. The big thing that was really amazing to me was the things I did not consider. Whenever I would do any physical activity, no matter how fit I have been, it always was hard for me. I could not understand why after being so dedicated to whatever exercise I was doing that I was always winded, much more than I thought I should be.
I started walking in the woods and hitting some trails that I have done in the past and I did the whole walk without feeling exhausted! I could breathe more easily. I was not winded. I was surprised, that was the first time in years.
I used to only be bothered by hay fever and once the spring was done and the grasses cut, I was good to go. Over the last 3 years, even when the so called allergy season was over, I was not done and it continued right through summer, fall and winter. I would wake up every morning stuffed up, not being able to breathe, sometimes waking
in the night to get up to take an allergy pill. Then I started taking them before I went to bed all the time just so I could get through a night peacefully. They did not always do the job either.
Since I have finished the NAET program, I have been able to forego the allergy medicine all together. I wake up in the morning able to breathe, no stuffiness. Food allergies, I thought that it was just an age thing when I would come up against some food that was not agreeing with me. I would wake many mornings with my stomach upset. There were certain things I would eat or drink and I would get the worst stomach ache soon after or I just felt lousy later. Since the sessions, I haave had no problems with my stomach and I have been able to eat and drink the things that bothered me before. I have to say I was a bit hesitant to try the onions. They really affected my stomach. Since the treatments, I have had several dishes with onions included and have done just fine.
In 1995 I came down with a bad case of a yeast infection. I tried getting rid of it with the over the counter medication that is available. But it returned several days after finishing the treatment. I tried several more times and could not get rid of it. I went to my medical doctor and she gave me medication in pill form and it still came back. They took a blood sample and said that I had Type II diabetes and that was why I had yeast infections. They wanted to put me on insulin right away, but I refused and chose to control the blood sugar through diet. In the year 2000, I began experiencing terrible pain in my arms, hands, chest, and legs. It felt as if someone was jabbing an ice pick into my muscles. I went to my medical doctor and she told me I had to lose weight. I am 5’4” and weigh 185 lbs. They said to take Tylenol or Motrin for the pain and sent me home.
I spent the next year in hell. I could no longer go for walks or exercise. I work in a foster home and must lift the clients as they cannot walk. Lifting was a misery, and scary as I never knew when the bouts of pain would hit. It became so bad that I had to use two hands at times to lift a coffee pot. I could barely sleep. I would wake up every hour because the excruciating pain in my body. Because of the pain and lack of sleep, I had no patience for anything. I would sit in the bathroom with the door closed and just sob because I did not know what was happening to me. I was scared and angry.
I went back to my medical doctor and she explained what I was going through. She told me I had endometriosis. She prescribed an anti-inflammatory. Two days after taking it I began vomiting blood. I went back and she prescribed Tylenol with codeine. Soon the pills caused drowsiness and constipation. Then I was given pills for the constipation.
While looking for a chiropractor in the local area I found Dr. Holland. I called him and during our consultation I mentioned what I had been going through. That was the first I had heard of NAET treatments.
In October of 2002 I began my first treatment. I was really excited about what might happen. When the first two treatments came and went and there was no change, I began to worry. It wasn’t until after the fourth treatment that it hit me like a brick. I was not experiencing the pain I had been living with. And I was not taking any Codeine!! I
waited another week and when I was still pain free I told Dr. Holland. It was WONDERFUL!!
I found myself sleeping through the night. And the constipation went away. It sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. I no longer need the Codeine.
On December 5th, Doctor Holland treated me for Candida. The yeast infection did not come back. For the first time in five years, I feel clean and healthy.
Because of Dr. Holland and his kindness, and because of NAET, I now have my life back. I am walking daily, my energy level has sky rocketed, I can sleep at night, and I am no longer losing patience with friends and family because of pain.
At fourteen, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I took a number of medications and had surgery to try to correct this debilitating digestion disease. However, at twenty-nine I had no other option left but to have ileostomy surgery. I had a few issues with the ileostomy, but compared to life before the “bag,” things were good.
After 10 years of living with “the bag,” I began looking for improvements. I happened upon an appliance that involved an internal pouch. I would no longer have to worry about the bag falling off or having It hang off my body. I researched it and then flew to Florida and had the operation.
Although I was enjoying my new found freedom of life without a bag, I later developed chronic pouchitis. That brought along its own set of symptoms – cramping, abdominal pain, diarrhea and a need to empty more often.
I have suffered with chronic pouchitis since my surgery in September 2000. In May 2002 I was so sick I had to be hospitalized for three weeks. I even required a blood transfusion. Since then I have been on numerous antibiotics and have had a daily regimen medication maintenance with no end in sight. My options were limited to either antibiotics for life or return to my ileostomy. As a result of the antibiotics I had chronic yeast infections.
I met Dr. Holland in September 2002. He ran a full allergy test on me and found many things I was sensitive to. Dr. Holland knew I had support from my GI doc and my surgeon, who had both told me that if alternative medicine works, “go for it,” and so I was. Dr. Holland and I began a new treatment plan. Each time I reduced my antibiotic intake down to the next dosage, Dr. Holland would test the dose on the Bio Meridian machine and then I would make my decision. I would keep in touch with my GI doc and my surgeon on a regular basis so that they were aware of my progress.
I was very skeptical at first, because I have worked in the medical field for 20 years and anything not mainstream was not valid in my mind. Desperation, however, is a strong driving force and I was at the end of my rope with nothing to lose. We started working the new plan, and to my amazement, I started to improve dramatically. When I started treatments with Dr. Holland, I was taking 1000mg of Cipro every day. After a short period of treatments, I was able to remain off of antibiotics for four weeks. I continue to see Dr. Holland on a regular basis. As long as I am on antibiotics I get chronic yeast infections that required prescription drugs. Dr. Holland is able to treat me with alternative methods; the end result is that I have not taken any drugs to treat the yeast.
I thank God for Dr. Holland and the work that he does; I know first hand that it has made huge improvements in my overall health and life style.
Thought Field Therapy
I had been battling depression for years. I tried medicines and counseling but nothing seemed to help. A friend told me that Dr. Holland was doing something called Thought Field Therapy and that it had helped her. I had tried so many other things and spent so much money that I thought this couldn’t hurt. Dr. Holland explained the procedure and we began. It took five or six minutes. When we were finished I wasn’t sure that anything had happened. However, I began to notice that little things that bothered me before had no effect on me now. I felt lighter. I didn’t want to shrink away and hid in my own little world. I wanted to get out and do things. It hasn’t stopped. I feel great. Thank you so much.
After being on a runway ready for take-off, they turned the airplane around and took me of. I had such a panic attack that I was beside myself. I had not flown since. Recently I found out that I had to fly to Texas and back. I began to panic. I was told that Dr. Holland had treated others for that same thing. So I decided to give it a try. After only one session, I apprehensively boarded the airplane expecting that old feeling to hit at any time. It didn’t. I flew to Texas and back without any problems. I have since made several trips across the US and that old panic feeling has not returned. Thank you so much.
