I just called the voicemail system for my results. My FSH level is down to 14.9 from 20.9 two months ago. Just wanted to say Thanks, I couldnt have done it without your help.

Jennette

I don't believe anything in life is coincidence, that is why I don't feel that my finding you is anything but a gift.

As you probably remember, about 2 years ago I called you and set up an apt. for my son Gianni. At that time Gianni was CONSTANTLY sick. Always on a nebeulizer, coughing, hives, never sleeping and very active.

Since meeting you and learning from all you have to offer, Gianni is rarely sick, is markedly more attentive, and is just a different kid.

It was a lot of hard work to implement some of these changes, but it can be done and was done. Without your guidance, support and availability (as I know I called often) this child would still be suffering. Suffering may seem a little dramatic, but it really isn't. He was having a rough time.

Thank you does not begin to express my gratitude....Your presence in my life and the lives of my kids is a gift and a blessing to all! If ever you have a parent who needs to hear, first hand, what changes can come of homeopathy and natural intervention, don't every hesitate to give them my number.

I wanted to thank you again for your time and advice over the past couple of weeks [regarding migraines and asthma ]. All of the suggestions on the recommendation plan you devised are really starting to make sense to me when I look at the diagram you drew and understand how everything seems to be inter-connected. It is comforting to finally talk to someone who can organize and interpret all of these issues in one place rather than compartmentalizing each one in separate boxes. I know that this is all a process that will take time for change to happen, but I am feeling very hopeful at this point and more in control.

Beth


I am doing quite well on the supplements you gave me combined with the physical therapist I am seeing now. Both are proving to be a great deal of help with pain and low energy.

Maria


I saw my PCP today. What a stark contrast after visiting you! He spent about 5 minutes with me and then asked if I wanted to try Zelnorm. I told him I didn't have IBS and didn't want to use anything that would artificially stimulate the colon (like laxatives, etc.), he said it still might help. I told him I'm trying something natural right now, so I'd like to hold off.

Joanne


Thank you and Dr. Pina for coming out to speak with us. It was one of our best [Lupus Support Group] meetings yet. We have touched on many of the topics that you discussed so I think it was good that nothing was completely unfamiliar, but your presentation really brought everything home.

Regards,

THANK YOU so very much for coming in and spending your time enlightening and educating us yesterday. Everyone was talking about it all afternoon. I can not tell you how much I appreciate it. I can't wait to be able to say "I knew you when" after you all are so big and famous and so busy that you won't be able to even talk to me anymore... you're doing such amazing stuff... it won't be long.

Cindy


First off...let me reiterate how much better I feel...my sinuses are unbelievably clear...at least for what I'm used to... you can definitely use my letter on your website...I wish everyone would realize that natural remedies work. In fact my mother, who was the most skeptical of them all, has made an appointment with an N.D.

Erin


I wanted to let you know that I am feeling a big difference in my health. And it's only been a few weeks. I've been in touch with my medical doctor, and we have started to decrease my plaquenil as of yesterday. I see him in 2 weeks for a follow up. I am very excited about the good health.

I also wanted to let you know that I have given your phone number to about 4 or 5 people in the past week. I hope they call you. They see the difference in me and want to get results for their own health conditions. I've been telling everyone who will listen to my story and they are so happy for me.

I just wanted to touch base with you one week after [following your recommendations], and I feel SO much better from it! It took a few days to kick in, but at first I noticed in the morning, having taken it the night before, a relaxed and light feeling the next day.

Today, my legs, arms and whole body are relaxing (the muscles). And WHAT a joy that is! I've been a walking tension-bomb for so long, it's nice to have a body that's relaxed.

Emily, NY City


Thank you very much for [your suggestions]. It really helped. I took it at 12:30 and was feeling better by 1:45. Thanks soooooooooo much!

Olivia


So I talked with my husband and we agreed that it is not really working out with the other practitioner and that I’d rather come to you since I am not really getting herbs from the other place there is no point in going there. Plus my husband said from what he can tell, I am getting much more personal attention and care from you and that I am more comfortable with you in general. I couldn’t agree more!!

Shelly


The results are in... and I am PREGNANT! I cannot believe it! I guess all the pomegranate juice really worked! Anyway, I could not be happier and I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I am so thrilled I found your name and came to see you! I am convinced you were the key to getting me pregnant. You and all the Pom juice!!!

Michele


On another note, I just would like to tell you that I walked out of your office yesterday feeling terrific. Your warm, yet professional, demeanor made me very comfortable and relaxed. I am very confident that you will be able to make me "new" again. I am looking forward to working with you.

Louise


Thank you for the phone call this morning. It is so comforting to know that not only are you available to talk to, but you really do care. I hate to repeat myself, but your concern and time and knowing that you are always there for me has been the greatest gifts anyone can give me.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Cecilia


Physically, my neck felt a lot looser thru the night, although it still hurt, but by morning the pain was gone (makes sense since all the clutter in my head got uncluttered) .... I believe in fate and that it has brought me to you ...thank you for helping me back on the right path!

Margaret


Just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how I appreciated all of the kindness and hospitality that you extended to me. I really learn a great deal from you and think you are a fantastic doctor and human! I will be in touch soon when the schedule for the fall starts looking more clear.

Melanie


Thanks! And thanks, too, for all your great counsel and caregiving. I wouldn't be in half as good shape during this pregnancy if it weren't for your expertise!
