Testimonial From A Friend w/ Gall Bladder Problems That I Helped

Vittoria – so I think you remember, and I want to THANK YOU for all your advice regarding gall bladder cleaning – I want to post about this too on Facebook and thank you, if that is OK – I had the six month followup on my gall bladder – and while I am not 100% clean, my doctor said he had never seen such rapid improvement – which he said had to be the diet on top of the Ursodial medicine – the scans are just incredible – from a gall bladder full of sludge and stones, to one with such a scattering of tiny sparkles, remnants of what was there and no edema or wall swelling and no issues with the bile ducts – I am still going to continue with ursodial another 6 months at least, and of course, olive oil, artichoke, healthy fats, mostly vegetarian and fish – but really the changes are incredible and what should take two years, took about 6 months – really thank you – Mike

What a Mixture of Chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology and Nutrition Can Do

03/28/2014 – Yesterday’s new patient has over 25 yrs of chronic pain complicated  by gluten sensitivity and a resulting leaky gut that has never healed and numerous falls and auto accidents. The list of her diagnoses included frozen shoulder that turned into an acromioclavicular jt separation, two ruptured lumbar discs, TMJ problems, bladder control weakness and peripheral nerve weakness and pain in her feet, gall bladder pain, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
 
All her medical doctors could offer her was surgery and pain management; previous surgeries had not resolved any problems and she didn’t want to be “drugged” up; and she wanted wellness care. She was tried of being sick; her body feeling “kinked-up” 
 
I worked on getting mobility into her sacrum, her cranials, her lumbar spine; strengthening her psoas – a major muscle for locomotion and posture, adjusting her feet and working on acu-points for her bladder, gall bladder and stomach and balanced her shoulder muscles and adjusted her a-c joint.
 
I started to tell her things she needed to do at home..like doing Kegel exercises to strengthen muscles around her bladder and not trying to hold urine in ( increases bladder problems) but to go immediately to the bathroom, how to ice her low back and feet, what position to sleep in , what probiotics & prebiotics she needed to repair her leaky gut and decrease the inflammation in her body and positive affirmations to repeat to herself about getting well.
 
Suddenly she looked at me and said that she was noting that sitting was not causing pain or increasing the “kinked-up” sensation…she felt a lot looser …I asked her to move the shoulder w/ the a-c joint problem…movement was pain-free and testing of her lt big toe was testing strong.
 
I’m sure that continued treatments and doing the homework I gave her to do will results in amazing changes in her body and her life.
 
05/10/2014 – Patient came in for her second visit due to financial problems, she can only come in for monthly visits. She has been doing her icing and exercises; though she says that she may have overdone it.
 
She is sleeping better and has less fatique and less overall body pains.
 
Her bladder control is much better with only occasional leaks since she has been doing her Kegel exercises and due to better nerve flow after her last adjustment to her sacrum and lower lumar vertebrae.
 
Her shoulder is moving freely though still with some pain and so her shoulder joint and scapula were adjusted and the spindles of her shoulder muscles were worked on.
 
Recent blood tests were negative for RA and Thyroid problems which were positive before; her Vitamin D is very low.
 
Due to financial problems, she has not gotten the supplements I recommended.
 
Her low back feels better and she was treated again with flexion distraction and pelvic category blocking  for her disc problem and stenosis; her pelvic category has changed to a less severe and painful category.  Her sacrum is moving well. Her big toe movement is better.
 
Her wrist (carpal tunnel) was adjusted again and wrist exercises were recommended.
 
Patient was told to continue w/ Kegel exercises for her bladder, and add toe exercises to her routine. And I asked her to get the supplementals I recommened.

New Patient Testimonial for a NYC Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist

The following was posted the early March by a patient of mine, Cheryl S. at a private website and she gave me permission to repost it.

I can vouch for Dr. Repetto! She’s been my chiropractor for about six years, and she just worked magic on an old injury.

I had to have surgery to reconstruct my shattered pelvis after a very serious accident in 2011. My surgeon warned me at the time that I would lose feeling on the front of my thigh because they would have to sever a nerve serving that skin. While I’m profoundly grateful to have regained 100% of my strength and range of motion, I’ve been mourning the loss of sensation in that large area ever since.. Damn!

I just had to have yet another surgery related to that same accident and I’ve had some concerns about post surgery nerve function in a muscle group adjacent to the numb skin on my thigh. I asked Dr. Repetto to check it out, and she also did some work on the numb area. I’m thrilled and astounded to be able to say that after she treated me the other night I seem to have suddenly regained sensation in a large portion of the numb skin area! Honestly, that should have been impossible. I don’t have full sensation yet. It’s kind of tingly, but I have another appointment with Dr. Repetto next week. Crossing fingers. It would be magical to regain that area.

Cheryl S.

How a NYC Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist/NeuroKineticTherapy Practitioner Treats Migraine Headaches

Are you having intense throbbing or a pulsing sensation in one area of your head and experiencing nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.

Does your headache last for hours to days and is it so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down.

Then it a good bet that you are suffering from a migraine headache.

Some find that their migraine is preceded or accompanied by sensory warning symptoms (aura), such as flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling in your arm or leg.

Unfortunately a lot of migraine sufferers take pharmaceuticals which only work 50% of the time, only that mask symptoms and cause side effects which include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, liver toxicity, muscle weakness and an increased risk of strokes and heart attacks.

migraine

In my practice, I have work with numerous people affected by migraines and I use a combination of holistic therapies to give my patients relief from their migraines.

In my practice, I have found some of the causes to be

  • Cervical and Cranial Misalignment/Malfunction
  • Neck Muscle Imbalances – Facilitating ones compensating for inhibited/weak ones
  • TMJ – Jaw joint & muscle imbalances
  • Stress
  • Liver toxicity
  • Food allergies/ Intolerances
  • Imbalance in Organ and Vascular Function
  • Nutritional Deficiencies such as Magnesium, B complex vitamins, Vitamin D and CoQ10

A lot of migraine sufferers have a combination of these causal factors.

In my practice, I check for upper cervical mis-alignments which can irritate nerves to the head and refer painful impulses.

Jammed cranial sutures can also affect both cranial and cervical nerves and the muscles of the head and cause pain.

Poor posture can cause cervical and cranial problems and therefore a patient’s posture is addressed and corrected.

Neck, shoulder and jaw muscles are tested for imbalances where facilitated muscles are compensating for inhibited muscles or where hypo-tonic  or hyper-tonic muscles affect the alignment of the spine,jaw or skull.

https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2010/05/17/cranial-sacral-therapy-in-applied-kinesiology/

Organ and vascular mis-function (not pathology), food allergies, intolerances, and liver toxicity can affect the processes of organs to work efficiently, decrease blood flow, affect the immune response and increase toxics in the body.

I use neuro-lymphatics and neuro-vascular pts and acupressure pts to increase the function and energy of the body.

I can also use these points to help the patient deal with stress and also suggest lifestyle changes to help them cope with the cause of their stress

https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2011/07/29/how-a-nyc-applied-kinesiologist-uses-neurovascular-pts-for-better-physical-and-emotional-wellbeing/

I check to see if the patient is eating foods that aggravate their migraine symptoms; these can include food allergies and intolerances such as gluten or dairy. Allergies and intolerances create problems in your gut and increase toxicity in the body.

https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2010/05/15/it%e2%80%99s-not-a-food-allergy-maybe-it%e2%80%99s-a-food-intolerance/

I encourage patient to only eat whole, natural un-processed fresh foods and get rid of artificial sweeteners, foods with high fructose corn syrup and other additives.

A lot of migraine sufferers befit from nutritional supplementation and a liver detox to increase body function

A NYC Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist Talks About Chiropractic Adjustments

Year after year, progressively more individuals consider chiropractic care for elimination of muscle, joint and spinal pain conditions. As a chiropractor and applied kinesiologist, I can assess, diagnose and determine what treatment would be best fitted to your needs.A chiropractic adjustment is a scientific method done with a skill developed from years of education and practice. It provides a gentle force into the spine of the patient through a very carefully directed and controlled pressure. This method is performed to be able to restore stronger position and motion to fixated spinal joints.

Chiropractic treatments were discovered to be far better and economical in eliminating numerous clinical conditions by scientific studies. It has been determined that chiropractic health care combined w/ applied Kinesiologist which uses muscle testing and balancing, acu-points, Neuro-vascular and neuro-lymphatic pts is risk-free, beneficial and cost efficient.

. Evaluation necessitates the following:- Take the patient’s case history
– Examine the posture
– Test muscles strengths and reflexes
– Other orthopaedic and neurological test might be required from time to timeThese medical tests are designed to spot any abnormal spinal function. Based on the findings of the evaluation, x-rays or some other types of diagnostic image resolution might be required.If the spinal is found to have abnormal functions, a program of adjustments will probably be recommended. The adjustment temporarily releases the joint and helps it back into correct alignment. It minimizes pressures on the joint and surrounding nerves.

MRI Scans Show Immediate Benefits of Chiropractic http://www.chironexus.net/mri-scans-show-immediate-benefits-chiropractic/

As a chiropractor, I serve as the guide for only the body knows wherever the spinal bones is going; however it is the skill and scientific means of the chiropractor that directs the bone to move.

Chiropractic treatments can reduce pain, improve movement and flexibility, as well as correct posture and gait.

TMJ Problems (Jaw Problems) and How A Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist/NeuroKineticTherapy Practitioner Handles the Problem

Temporomandibular Joint problems(TMJ) or jaw pain occur mainly as a result of an imbalance  with the joint and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw.

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull, which is immediately in front of the ear on each side of your head.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temporomandibular_joint

The joints are flexible, allowing the jaw to move smoothly up and down and side to side and enabling you to talk, chew, and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control the position and movement of the jaw.

http://education.yahoo.com/reference/gray/subjects/subject/109

What Causes TMJ Problems?

  • Receiving a heavy blow or whiplash
  • Grinding or clenching the teeth, which puts a lot of pressure on the TMJ
  • Dislocation of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket
  • Presence of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the TMJ
  • Stress or Emotional Overload which can cause a person to tighten facial and jaw muscles or clench the teeth
  • Biting down on a hard and/or thick piece of food
  • Using jaw clenching to compensate for weak or inhibited muscles elsewhere

What Are the Symptoms of a TMJ Problem?

  • Pain or tenderness in the face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak, or open your mouth wide
  • Limited ability to open the mouth very wide
  • Jaws that get “stuck” or “lock” in the open- or closed-mouth position
  • Clicking, popping, or grating sounds in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth or chewing
  • Difficulty chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite
  • Swelling on the side of the face
  • May occur on one or both sides of the face

Other common symptoms of a TMJ problem can include digestive problems, toothaches, headaches, neck aches, dizziness, earaches, hearing problems, upper shoulder pain, and ringing in the ears (tinnitis).

Neurological influences of the temporomandibular joint

As a Applied Kinesiologist and Doctor Of Chiropractic, I look at the articulation of the joint itself and the pull of the muscles such as the Masseter, the Temporalis, the External Pterygoid and the Internal Pterygoid on the joint itself. Neck muscles, hyoid muscles  and upper back muscles also affect the TMJ. Are they in spasm? Are they weak?  Do they need muscle spindle or golgi tendon work?

As a NeuroKineticTherapy practitioner, I ask if some muscles are compensating (or overactive) for inhibited or weak muscles. “The jaw muscles can compensate for weakness in the grip, in the neck flexors, or in the hip flexors.” http://neurokinetictherapy.com/do-you-treat-causes-or-symptoms-part-three

What_is_the_TMJ_2

As the TMJ is part of the skull, the cranial bones are checked for alignment; esp the occipital bone at the back of the head.

https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2010/05/17/cranial-sacral-therapy-in-applied-kinesiology/

Subluxations of the occipital also are involved with upper cervical (neck) problems and therefore cervical subluxations are adjusted

And since the examining acupuncture pts. on the head shows us that a number of meridians associated with digestion such as the stomach, small intestine and large intestines cross the TMJ can affect digestion (digestion can affect the TMJ), checking acupunture pts., the neuro-lymphatic and neuro-vascular points for digestive organs need to checked to see if there is any connection.

head acupunture pts

Once all the above are checked, then a very gentle adjustment of the joint itself can done.; a number of adjustments may be needed to break the subluxated pattern and get the Jaw joint moving freely and pain and noise free.

If you believe you have a TMJ problem, please give my office at call at 212-431-3724 for an appointment.
