I first started seeing Dr. Melinda in early 2015. Before that, I saw a chiropractor in St. Joseph & an acupuncturist in Overland Park. I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Melinda – and it turns out they are all true! At my first visit, Dr. Melinda took a great amount of time to go over my medical history, which at that time included numerous prescriptions for allergies and a history of lower back, neck and daily facial pain. Dr. Melinda gave me my Wellness Plan at my second visit and suggested trying the Paleo food plan – she thought I may have food allergies in addition to seasonal allergies.
After several chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture sessions, plus converting to the Paleo lifestyle, I was able to stop using numerous nasal sprays & other prescription medicines. I now know what my “trigger” foods are, and I feel great! My allergist & ear/nose/throat doctors are amazed that I am no longer visiting them several times a year for infections. Both have told me they are encouraging their other patients to try chiropractic and acupuncture. My previous chiropractor had told me I have arthritis in my lower back – but after Dr. Melinda’s adjustments I rarely have any lower back pain.
If anyone is skeptical about trying acupuncture – give it a try! It is painless – and I consider it a 20 minute nap.
