When I first came for just a chiropractic adjustment, I wasn’t planning on talking about anything else – but I’m so glad I did. I had been experiencing various memory problems for 8+ years, but there was a significant cognitive decline in the past 8 months-it was horrible. I’m a professional woman with a job that has a lot of responsibility. I was always seen as a “powerhouse”. My brain was foggy, I couldn’t concentrate, I was easily frustrated, I wouldn’t enter conversations at work for fear of not being able to think of the right word or mix up words or just not being able to keep up. My brain felt like a radio station that was always on static. I was always confused. I felt…depleted…lost…scared…and older. I didn’t know what was wrong. I was worried there might be a tumor or pressure of some kind in my brain, or Lyme disease. Dr. Priestman assessed me and in addition to treating me chiropractically, he treated me in the WHOLE sense. He genuinely cares about my health, is very knowledgeable and very empathetic. He’s a doctor that doesn’t want you to struggle with something you don’t have to. He recommended a few supplements. At first I was skeptical but figured I had nothing to lose. I was desperate for help. I followed the schedule religiously. Within 2 ½ weeks, the change is dramatic. My concentration levels have increased. I am purposely working longer hours with great energy and focus. I’m catching up on everything I had fallen behind in. There is a possible promotion in front of me. Before, I didn’t consider I had a chance – had made too many mistakes and my performance was just “off”. Now I am confident in this possibility and it seems like I have a good or even probable chance. Around the family, my “cognitive decline” had become the topic of jokes. I even made reference to it frequently in a joking way. I just realized that in the past 2 ½ weeks, no one has referenced this AT ALL. The change has been almost overwhelming…but in a good way. I feel like myself again- like how I used to be- confident and competent. I am so grateful and excited to see what the future holds.
“In the 3 months previous to the cleanse (21-day Purification), I was on 3 different antibiotics which had eventually stripped my digestive system. I was speaking to Dr. Priestman about my wish to do something about that. He explained the 21-day Purification Program to me and provided me with all I would need. I knew I needed to do something about the food I was eating, but that I didn’t know where to start. Four days later, I started the program. The challenge I was most afraid of was my sugar addiction. My two goals were to interrupt my sugar addiction and reconstituting my digestive process. In the last week of the cleanse, I had a very abrupt blood pressure drop. That allowed me to go off the blood pressure meds I have been on for 15 years. During the purification, I lost 8 lbs and after, I lost 4 more. Right now, it is 3-4 months post cleanse and my weight has stabilized in the 130’s and I’m delighted with that. I have continued to stay off wheat and dairy, as Dr. Priestman recommended specifically for me. I eat much less sugar, but I still have 1 glass of wine at night. I will mention that 2 months after the cleanse, my blood pressure started going up again. Several family and life stressors are going on at the same time, so I am back on the blood pressure meds again. Although, my blood pressure is still lower than when I was on meds before the cleanse. My goal will be to get off them again. I am on 2 antibiotics due to some infection, but as soon as I get back to town (patient spends winter months in Florida), I will be in to see Dr. Priestman for a wellness assessment. Also, I WILL be doing the 21 day Purification Program again!” (Patient gave this testimonial verbally over the phone while hiking a nature trail in Florida.)
Dr. Priestman was 100% right- the cleanse (Standard Process Purification) was definitely what I needed to clean out my system. He explained that until I cleaned out my liver, I would not be able to burn fat. In doing the purification, I saw immediate results- 9 pounds in the first week! Within the first 3 days, I could feel immediate digestive improvement. The first few days were definitely a dramatic change- you must be prepared in terms of having the right food on hand. I always plan 2 days ahead. Once you get into the new rhythm, it’s easy. This process eliminates the cravings – now fruit satisfies me instead of candy/chocolate. My taste buds changed in a positive way. I crave and ENJOY healthier foods now- like brussel sprouts! So good! I look forward to eating healthy foods instead of dreading it. I lost 18 pounds in the 3 weeks of the Purification Program and am continuing to lose. Now I just eat completely differently. I am more satisfied eating healthier foods. It’s a positive lifestyle change and it’s even trickling down to my family. My 3 year old daughter is asking questions about the food I’m eating and trying new things. She actually likes brussel sprouts. I’m just ecstatic and so thankful I did it. I exceeded the weight loss, but it’s not just that- I feel so much better. I feel more balanced-able to handle things better. I can let some things slide and am more clear-headed. I have more energy. I’m accomplishing more in the same amount of time. I’m also sleeping better-there’s been a huge improvement in my sleep.

I was due to have a wellness update appointment, so I explained that I had ongoing immune/sinus issues that I have had all of my life with no resolution. I was very stuffed up at night and could not sleep well. I had breathing problems throughout the day. It was causing fatigue and even anxiety issues. Dr. Priestman evaluated me and prescribed 6 supplements to address these sinus and immune issues. By my next visit, 1 month later, there was noticeable improvement and his testing showed that dosages could be reduced. Now, 4 months later, I take 4 supplements and the dosages are dramatically reduced. More importantly, I have absolutely no symptoms today. I’m able to fall asleep right away. I have no breathing problems throughout the day. All my issues are resolved and my fatigue is gone!

The middle part of my back was hurting. I came to see Dr. Priestman for chiropractic treatment- I had two appointments. I have three jobs- all require physical labor. My full-time job is head custodian for a school district. I have a part-time job where I do residential/commercial clean-up. Then I renovate/flip houses on the weekend. I did all of my jobs this past week- I even put in 5 hours doing rip-out/demo on the flip. I also have severe asthma. Today I am here for my third adjustment. My back is good! The discomfort in my back is only slight. The main thing is I did not have to reduce my work load at all due to pain.

I had been having general aches and pains off and on… but a recurring pain in my right leg that would stick around for 3-4 days. This started 5 years ago. My right knee would become very stiff – I could barely walk up and down stairs. This would recur once/month. I came for regular chiropractic adjustments, but it didn’t help this particular issue. In December 2015, Dr. Priestman recommended a regimen of Livaplex. From when I started taking Livaplex, I have had no reoccurrence of my leg and knee pain at all. In fact, all joint-related pain anywhere in my body is gone. It has been 3 ½ months. I’ve been coming to Dr. Priestman for a long time. He has taught me how to manage my motions/movements to keep my back in good shape. Doing that along with maintenance chiropractic appointments has kept everything working well. Now, with the Livaplex, I don’t even worry about an upcoming flare-up…I am just pain-free.

I was referred here by a friend who was having similar problems. I initially came because of severe gynecological hemorrhaging. It had been going on for 10-12 months. My symptoms included blood clots, hemorrhaging and crippling cramps. I lost time from work…it was miserable. I had been to the gynecologist, who essentially said they were going to do a bunch of horrible tests that were painful. And no matter the results, they would internally burn my uterus. Then if that didn’t work, they would remove my uterus and I would be on pharmaceutical medications for the rest of my life. There were just no other options being discussed or offered. I made an appointment with Dr. Priestman about 7 months ago. He performed different kinds of tests on me and recommended several supplements. Initially, the change was slow, but each month I was better and better and the number of supplements I was taking was reduced and a few were changed. Now I am no longer cramping or hemorrhaging at all. In addition, I learned that I had some food allergies. By making the changes he recommended, I no longer have headaches or joint pain. I feel awesome today! I have so much more energy! Everything is going well.

I had been suffering with severe pain in my neck, shoulder and lower back. My pain level was a 10 every single day for 5 months. I was unable to sleep. I couldn’t vacuum the floor. I couldn’t stir food in a pot. I was totally incapacitated. I just remained as stationery as possible because just about any movement hurt. I bowed out of almost all social functions because I was miserable with pain- even being reduced to tears at times. I had been to an orthopedic surgeon who referred me for pain management. They recommended injections, which were not covered by insurance. They cost $475/injection. I had a total of three…but this was only a temporary fix and did not address the cause. I had MRIs and x-rays- all paid for out-of-pocket. I went back to my Primary Care Physician who went over the results with me. He said there was nothing wrong with my shoulder and no follow-up was needed. I had come to a dead end. My pain was still excruciating. My girlfriend referred me to Dr. Priestman. After receiving chiropractic adjustments and taking recommended supplements (Cataplex ACP, Glucosamine Synergy, Ligaplex I and Chlorophyl Complex) and doing neck/ball exercises he demonstrated, I finally had relief from pain. It is working wonders! I got my life back 100% thanks to Dr. Priestman! He is the only one who has helped me. I am so grateful!

My primary issues were irregular, too heavy, too long, too frequent menstrual cycles. I felt lousy and miserable too much of the time. I was exhausted. I was upset and frustrated that this was how it was going to be for the next 10 years while I went through this period of my life. I just felt so down. I came to see Dr. Priestman initially for chiropractic issues and these concerns came out during my interview. After muscle testing with me, Dr. Priestman prescribed Wild Yam, Ovex P and Utrophin PMG. Two and a half weeks later I had my next cycle and it was much better. I’ve now had 3 cycles and each one has been better than the one before. I now have only one cycle each month instead of two. The flow is normal and lasts only 4-5 days instead of 7-9. I have much more energy now. I feel happy and I’m more active. I can just continue to live my regular life during my cycles. I don’t have to miss work. I just overall feel so much better about myself!

I hurt my back- this goes back a long ways…back to 2012…and when I first came in, Bob from our service department carried me in! I couldn’t walk at all! I couldn’t take care of myself. The first day I came, Dr. Priestman saw me twice that day, and then again on Saturday. Dr. Priestman saw me again on Monday and by then I was up and walking with a cane.! Now just recently, I had another flare-up. He prescribed St. John’s Wort and Neurotrophin PMG to calm the nerves (contributing to this sciatica). I had an even more rapid improvement. Now I am continuing on Calcifood and Trace Minerals B12 for ongoing strengthening of my joints. I still work three days a week at a marine business. As the receptionist, my physical duties include sitting, standing, walking, vacuuming, and even pumping gas into boats. I’m back to walking my dog. Today I feel good. It’s very good.

I have been coming to Dr. Priestman for so long – he has helped me with so many issues. Many years ago I had been hospitalized because I had trouble emptying my bladder. I came to Dr. Priestman. After he assessed me, he recommended the supplement Arginex to support my kidney function. This has helped tremendously. If I don’t take it, I start to ache all over. I take several supplements that have taken care of a number of different health issues. Biost is another supplement Dr. Priestman recommended, which has much improved my receding gums. He is so knowledgeable.Dr. Priestman’s chiropractic expertise is valuable also. Many years ago, I had excruciating pain shooting down my arm and my two middle fingers went numb. I was concerned it was my heart, but because I have so much faith in his ability, I came to Dr. Priestman first. He reassured me it wasn’t my heart – it was a pinched nerve. He adjusted me and it was better. He consulted with my GP and told him I had a pinched nerve due to degeneration of some discs in my spine and that it would require surgery. I had the surgery and it has been fine for a long time. I had similar pain just last week. I came in and after he adjusted me, the pain and numbness completely went away.Basically when I have any kind of physical/health problem, I see him first. He has saved me from going through needless malarkey and gets right to the cause and remedy of the problem.

I came to Dr. Priestman’s Wellness Program with hopes to get relief from ongoing migraine headaches. I have suffered with them all of my adult life, most of them leading to vomiting. They caused me to miss work and family events on a regular basis. I tried different medications and visited several chiropractors with the hopes of finding the root cause of them. I did find a particular drug that was very effective in stopping a migraine at its onset, but the drug was not preventative and I was taking them at a much greater frequency than was recommended which is dangerous in terms of potential damage to your liver. I came back to see Dr. Priestman. After several appointments where I was tested for mineral and vitamin deficiencies, there was great improvement physically, but the migraines did not diminish. At one appointment, Dr. Priestman asked me to try something different. He suggested I do neck exercises using a ball, which are core-strengthening exercises for the neck. He also recommended the supplement Cataplex ACP. With these two interventions, my headaches decreased IMMEDIATELY! I went from 2-3 headaches/week to 1 every 2-3 weeks. Not only have they decreased in frequency, but their intensity and length decreased as well. This was achieved with no pharmaceutical medications at all! I am so grateful to Dr. Priestman for his expertise and suggestion of trying this exercise and to have this debilitating condition essentially gone from my life through a natural, healthy way.

Sciatica was my primary problem, which started about 12 years ago. I suffered through several years of pain. It was terrible- everything hurt. I’m a DIY guy and just going up and down stairs hurt. Bending, lifting, getting into the positions I needed to in order to do things was just all very painful. About 7-8 years ago I had surgery to deal with this- a hemilaminectomy. The surgery got rid of the most severe pain, but not all of it. I have been on pain pills (8/day) ever since. My wife came to Dr. Priestman recently for severe pain and she had dramatic positive results. So I made an appointment for myself. I was very impressed with how knowledgeable Dr. Priestman was about my specific problem. He had a definite course of action that would help me. After the very first adjustment and taking the supplements he recommended (St. John’s Wort and Neurotrophin PMG), 40% of the pain was gone. Each time I came, there was less and less pain. I have been able to greatly reduce my pain pills from 8/day to only 2-3 at night. My pain level was down to a 4 last week and today it’s completely gone! He also recommended an inversion table for both me and my wife…and that has been great. Now everything is so much easier. I recently attended a family graduation at FLCC and had to go up a long flight of stairs. It was no problem. I didn’t even need the handrail! All the little things in life are so much easier…I just feel so good. I can feel the muscles in my back getting stronger and stronger. All my joint pain is gone! I was seeing another chiropractor before I came to Dr. Priestman and was told there was nothing more that could be done for me. The next step would be surgery again. So what Dr. Priestman has done is a big deal to me. All chiropractors are not alike.

In 1994 I had a serious injury to my knee at work. I was helping to unload a huge heavy 60-quart mixer. It was pushed too hard towards me and I tried to stop it from falling by using my body. Everyone in the area heard my knee pop. I had my knee repaired in 2001, but the surgery was unsuccessful- it had actually done further damage to my knee. I was then wearing a brace to just be able to walk. I saw another doctor and he said my knee had to be replaced again. The damage to the nerve is permanent. When I told Dr. Priestman about this, he put me on Neurotrophin PMG to support my nervous system. With that supplement, it has made this area of my leg much less sensitive. I can bowl again!-and golf again! I couldn’t do these things for a long time.

I have never met another doctor like Dr. Priestman. Whatever problem or ailment you have, he researches it to figure out the best natural treatment. I had a glomus jugulare tumor that had attached to a blood vessel in my brain behind my ear in 1991. I had it removed- it was an 18 ½ hour operation with 7 doctors attending. They couldn’t get it all and I was told that it might grow back, but it was a very slow growing tumor. In November 2014, they found it was growing again at the base of my skull, in a place where they could not operate. The only option was a very aggressive method of radiation. I was scheduled to have this done in 6 weeks. I told Dr. Priestman what was going on and he started me on Drenotrophin PMG, Vitamin D and Vitamin K2. When I was originally scanned, the doctor said the size of the tumor was the size of the top of my thumb. When I was scanned 6 weeks later, it was only the size of the tip of my pinky finger. The brain cancer doctor was amazed. The only things I had done differently was taking these supplements. There was no need for the radiation. I have had another MRI; there is still no need for the radiation!

The very first time I came to Dr. Priestman- over ten years ago- I was just a walk-in off the street and he gave me some adjustments and put me right back in shape. At my next visit, he asked me how I was feeling and I said “like death warmed over”. He did some muscle testing and also tested me for food allergies. He told me I shouldn’t eat wheat. I thought “Oh my God- he’s just another quack!” But I gave it a try anyway. I had more energy, I wasn’t so lethargic and just felt better throughout the whole day. From there, we addressed a lot of different problems areas in my body. Whenever I tell him things are not going well, through muscle testing he recommends a supplement and says that I may not see a change overnight, but usually within 3-4 days. This has turned out to be true every time. The chemicals and processing of foods don’t give us what our bodies need. The supplements are always effective.
