I have suffered for several years with headaches, fatigue and digestive issues. I’ve also never, and I mean, never been able to lose weight – even when working with a nutritionist and physical trainer. As a 30something who’d like to start a family and was tired of feeling sick and tired, I came to Dr. Baker to figure out what was going on and for the first time ever, I felt like someone was able to figure my symptoms out. Dr. Baker is easy to talk to and willing to listen. She answers my many questions and always ensures I feel comfortable and familiar with the treatment plan before I leave the appointment. Most importantly, the treatment plans are specific to my test results and needs – unlike some experiences I’ve had with endocrinologists and gastroenterologists in the past. Although major diet changes and certain supplements were needed to address my autoimmune disorders and it’s been a lifestyle adjustment, I’m pleased that for the first time I have lost weight and I’m having fewer headaches and significantly less digestive distress.
I was desperate to find relief from chronic pain that I had endured over several years as a result herniated disc and the 2 subsequent surgeries and rehab periods. My experience with Dr. Berg has been an incredible blessing of healing and building relationships. The acupuncture has cured my chronic pain. The caregivers have taught me much about my body.
[Later on] we found out that I needed a new right hip due to avascular necrosis caused by the high doses of prednisone I had to take in 2007 and 2008 before my heart transplant. This caused another round of high pain daily plus more inflammation in my whole right leg and foot. Today I am almost totally pain free, can sleep on my right side and am able to swim and even play tennis again.
I recently sought acupuncture treatment at Aria Integrative Medicine for tendinitis in my elbow, with amazing results. Prior to the acupuncture treatment, I received a homeopathic treatment for my Gallbladder disease in which prevented surgery. Dr. Berg treated me with respect and compassion. She spent adequate time with me, listened to me and explained the procedures in order to calm my uneasiness. I am very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Berg at Aria Integrative Medicine.
