I have been suffering with hypoglycemia for 12 years!!!! I had to force feed myself every 30 minutes sometimes!!! I've been to every kind of doctor you can think of- natropaths, allergists, maybe 25 different endocrinologists, acupuncturists, herbologists, chiropractors, and the list goes on. The western doctors were the worst- so focused on how my labs look "normal" and that I need anti-depressants because it was "all in my head." Then of course rushing me out of their office.
I told him my symptoms, which had rendered me housebound for the last two years and confounded every other doctor, and he suggested it might be food allergies/sensitives. I got a blood test where they tested me for virtually every food. Turns out I'm allergic to almost everything! I stopped eating those foods and I can't tell you how much better I feel!!! I want to shout it from the roof tops for all you hypoglycemia sufferers out there!! I no longer have to keep food in my purse, my car, my nightstand! I'm FREE!!!! But my work is not over yet. Dr, Churchill is clearing out my heavy metals, candida, parasites and rebuilding my digestive system. It's so nice to be able to function again.
Meeting Dr. Churchill was a totally different experience. He was so incredibly present and compassionate. He heard every word I said and took on my case with a kind of caring and determination I had not yet seen in any other practitioner. He is totally available to his patients and to put it simply, he cares about his patients getting well much more than he cares about making money off them. I can't say enough about him.
From a patient with eczema
"I have had eczema since childhood. It became worse, especially on my face and hands, in my adulthood and I began seeing allergists and dermatologists regularly. I was taking inhaled, oral, topical and injectable medications yet nothing ever really seemed to control the problem. I felt like results I was getting didn't justify the quantity of medications i was taking. There had to be a better way. I began to do my own research - I stopped all medications and tried a gluten-free diet with no results. I began to see an acupuncturist and eventually found naturopathic medicine. I liked the idea of using natural substances to not only address a disease process, but to fix it.
By a lucky twist of fate, I stumbled upon Dr. Dana Churchill. My first consultation with him was like no other that I had had with previous doctors. He asked questions about not just my skin, but about me, my personality. We discovered some triggers for my eczema flare-ups and talked about how food could be involved. He suggested some dietary supplements to help restore the gastrointestinal tract and procedures to support the immune system. Most importantly he suggested a homeopathic remedy that would eventually change the "terrain" of my body. After about a month of tiny amounts of the remedy, the dose was increased. After the increase, the results were amazing. I could feel the itch dissipate first. Then the redness and swelling disappeared and was replaced by extremely dry, flakey, non-itchy skin. My skin flaked and peeled for about 3 days. What emerged was the best skin I have had in years, especially on my hands and face.
Dr. Churchill has been amazing from the start. He answered my initial email immediately and spoke with me for a brief phone consultation. Not only had he read my entire multi-paged history, but he had already begun to formulate a treatment plan even before our first meeting. His interest in really helping his patients, and not just their problems, was clear from the beginning. He is an intelligent and genuinely compassionate doctor who has dedicated himself to finding solutions to disease by treating the whole person. The quality of my life has improved tremendously since I have begun seeing Dr. Churchill - my skin is healing and I feel wonderful!
From a patient with auto immune disorders
To Staff Sergeant about her experience at Dr. Churchill's practice:
"My name is Belinda and I am an Air Force spouse married to MSgt Philip. We are currently stationed at Edwards AFB. Last August I started seeing Dr. Dana Churchill and began treatments for various health issues that I have dealt with for the past 15 years. On my last visit, Dr. Churchill told me about an opportunity he has to be involved in some base programs and that you were his contact. I just wanted to share my experience and relay to you how much I think this would be an awesome agenda for not only military members but also for the spouses as well. My husband has been deployed 5 times since September 11, 2001, and that has caused significant stress in our lives. I have a history of auto immune disorders and little did I know that the stress was contributing to my ill health. When I started being treated by Dr. Churchill, he discovered that I had several major food allergies along with large amounts of lead in my system. In the process of changing my diet and cleansing my system, my health has made a huge turnaround, and my perspective of military life is much more positive. The beneficial effect that Dr. Churchill has had on my life as a whole is absolutely incredible. Not only do I have more energy, but I am sleeping better at night, have more motivation to pursue my interests, and have lost over 20 LBS (and I wasn’t even trying to lose weight). Dr. Churchill’s naturopathic methods can be life changing. His approach to be personal and compassionate is healing and encouraging as well. My husband and I are so thankful that Dr. Churchill has influenced the quality of our lives for the better."
From a patient with eczema and allergies
"I can't believe it is working so well!!! No itching on my entire body!!! ^___^ Thank you thank you thank you thank you!"
From a patient with severe cystic acne
"Thank you so much for all of your time, research, and dedication for the sake of my health. It's been such a transformation in such a short period of time. I can't thank you enough. -Thanks again-"
From a patient with severe cystic acne
"I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything, hard work, patience that you have shown me. I feel so much more relaxed and energized and happy because of your therapy. I believe that you will or you have found my remedy and I will recover from my acne. You are an amazing individual/doctor, I can’t thank you enough."
Now a foundation has been laid on which to build a new me...
From a patient who had been going through physical therapy previously for two months for a severed Achilles tendon
"If I had known that my foot and ankle could heal so fast using homeopathy and hydrotherapy, I would not have wasted so much time."
From a patient who had debilitating arthritis for over 20 years, one week after treatment
"Dr. Churchill, I must say thank you. My knees are so much better: I have not had pain keeping me awake at night in a couple of days and I can go down stairs normally, not like a two year old!" "I like to think of you as a medical magician. You researched my problems so very thoroughly and came up with solutions that worked so well and made my life so much easier."
I felt like I could TRUST my doctor once again.
rom a patient who had no more hope left who had suffered for years with life threatening depression and anxiety
"I firmly believe that the time will come when you shall greatly prosper and others will benefit from your course of studies and the new hope that you give to those who may have otherwise lost it.
I want to thank you again for the kind attention to details that you give so generously to me in the way you look for answers to my healing. It is a rare thing that you do and I really really appreciate you."
From a patient who had serious depression and anxiety
"Even though things are rough right now, I'm more hopeful than I have been in a long time. You are a really great doctor."
From a patient who had debilitating environmental toxicity, allergies, and food sensititives for 30 years
"Yes, Indeed, I am better and loving it. It is just as you said it would be, I am seeing things in a different way. Joyful, grateful, peaceful.
It was several things that made the difference; First you determined the foods I should avoid for the time being. Secondly, the remedy which lead me to the next step. The causticum dredged up some old emotional stuff that needed to be healed.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your part in all of this."
Recovered from an eating disorder
"God Bless you Dr. Churchill. I highly respect and admire what you do for a living. You change people's lives and heal them. Thanks in advance for your valuable time and effort."
From a patient who had an acute nasal sinus and respiratory tract mold infection
"I felt like I could TRUST my doctor once again. Dr Churchill is professional, involved and comforting – just like what you want when you are sick. I chose Dr. Churchill from an internet search for naturopathic doctors who also had understanding of western practices, so I did not have to choose what was right for me, but he could choose and guide me. My illness was very debilitating for about one month, now I am ‘back to normal’ – doing all the activities I was used to doing, working full time and enjoying life once again. Not only is my illness better, but all my vitals are better. AND my husband got better…he actually had some vitals that had changed over time and Dr. Churchill has treated him with exceptional speed and success.
"Dr. Churchill has been tremendously helpful in reorienting my nutritional approach toward a healthier lifestyle. By utilizing whole foods combined with nutritional supplements, he has worked wonders on my emotional outlook and weight loss. I've been battling degrees of depression practically my entire adult life. I've tried endless combinations of medications and therapies to no avail. I'm still in shock to discover that by simply altering my diet, I now have as much energy and emotional outlook that I once experienced as a teenager. I'm simply hands-down amazed that this approach tops anything and everything else that I've ever tried. This 50 year old former zombie thanks you for helping me get my life back!"
I just wanted you to know that I am feeling great!!!! I have not checked my blood pressure....but I am so much at peace because I came out this brain fog with all kind of thoughts running through my mind.
When I left your office I went to spa and went into the Jacuzzi and felt anxious, then to steam room and then to the sauna very quickly. I decided to go to the quiet room which was around 4:00 PM and asked myself " who am I being" and waited for the answer. About 4:45 PM, I finally really saw the clock on the wall and everything around me. It's like I have been sleep walking and I finally woke. I felt so happy and excited.
What came up is that I was being ungrateful.
I Now am living in the NOW and not worrying about the what happened in the past and what will happen in the future. I am going to continue to do my best and accept others who are doing there, best because what else can you ask for yourself and others.
I don't know what going to work for my blood pressure, but I am optimistic about the results and my future.
Thank you so much for your assistance.
Now, I get to where I talk to people or see them, and I think 'Oh, my God, you need Dr. Churchill.'
I wanted to take a few minutes to acknowledge the care and expertise that Dr. Dana Churchhill has demonstrated to me. I am still a fairly new patient but have experienced significant improvement already in a one month period. I have been to every doctor you can think of including other Naturopaths and not one of them have fully grasped my condition and what my needs have been, except Dr. Churchill. He is completely attentive, thorough, compassionate and very knowledgeable. Although some of these treatments are very new to me I have a sense of confidence and certainty that I'm finally in the process of having a major breakthrough (after 10 years of battling). One thing I know for sure he won't let me get away without finding a way to help. For that I am grateful, very grateful.
I could not believe the scales this morning 169, it seems that I am melting away and I love it.
I started the pills on Friday but waited until I got back from San Diego on Monday to start the drinks and tea and I am amazed at the results so far. My swollen ankles are down for the first time in years. I am feelin pretty good, a little tired and drained and light headed, but otherwise great. I have not even changed my diet that much yet as I had a steak and desserts over the weekend.
This is the first detox I've done that doesn't taste bad and make me feel really bad. I am truly amazed at the results so far. You are awesome (but I guess you're used to hearing that!!)
You'll probably get an appointment from the lady that I pet sit for in Bel Air, cause she is amazed at how I'm looking and feeling.
I have been walking for exercise for 20 years. During my last year of walking it became slower and more painful to walk, to the point that i had to give it up. For the past 10 months the pain became so severe that I thought I would be bedridden or in a wheelchair. Then Dr. Churchill introduced a homeopathic remedy that has reduced my pain by 90%. The transformation was most noticeable after a week and a half. I have my independence back!!!
I have been sick as long as I can remember. over 16 years to be exact. Going from doctor to doctor. Told over and over again that nothing was wrong with me and that it was "in my head", self manifested. I knew in m heart I wasn't making it up or making myself sick. I did everything they told me and after finally year of being on every anti depressant and pain medicines, I was diagnosed with Fribromyalgia and anti anxiety disorder. Pressing on through different opinions I came across a doctor who asked me if I had ever been tested for Lyme Disease. Well he did test me and found out I was for Lyme Disease. Finally mystery solved I can finally start feeling better. Not quite. Come to find out not a lot if not a hand full of doctors even know about Chronic Lyme Disease, and fewer know how to treat it. Basically going back to square one trying to find a doctor who would treat my disease.
I was depleted when my husband came across Dr. Dana Churchill's website. My husband said to "I think he can help, I just have a feeling this is it!" I thought after seeing well a hundred a so doctor's, "I'll believe it when I see it". Dr. Churchill got me in right away and within the first half an hour I knew my husband was right. He knew all the right questions about my disease and the pain and suffering I was going through. He spent about 4 hours going through my history and everything I was going through one at a time. I've never felt that a doctor was so tentative with me ever. After 2 weeks of starting the herbal medicines and going to weekly detox, and hydro therapy, and change in diet. I was finally starting to feel better. Going from thinking this disease would probably cripple and could possibly take my life I feel like Dr. Churchill helped save my life. He has helped not only my physical health but my mental and spiritual as well. I continue to get stronger and feel better even though I've completed my therapies and he continues to check on me all the time. I am so very thankful to have found Dr. Churchill he has given me strength, hope, and a chance at a normal life. I realize I have Lyme Disease it doesn't have me, I took my power back, with Dr. Churchill's help for that I am eternally grateful.
