“5 weeks ago a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Forman. I was feeling pretty bad. I was feeling a lot of fatigue, I was feeling tired all the time, I was bloated, I couldn’t focus and I was uncomfortable…really, really uncomfortable with everything that was going on with me. It’s been 5 weeks now and I actually feel fabulous. My bloating has gone away and that’s wonderful. I have more focus, which is something I was struggling with a lot for many years, and I have done a lot of things, but not until I came here did I get my focus back, I feel more energy, I’m actually staying up later and feeling really, really good. Overall, I’m super, super happy and super grateful. Thank you.“

“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Forman’s for about 5-6 weeks. When I first came in here I was suffering from very low energy, I had problems with my thyroid, weight gain, brain fog, hair loss, dry skin. I started his program immediately and I’m now in my 5th week and I’m feeling almost 100% better. I cannot thank him enough, I’m so grateful. My energy level is way better, my skin is better, my thyroid [symptoms] is under control, I’m almost off my medications and feel like my normal self. I sleep well, I’m actually losing weight so I’ve gained muscle, and I just feel overall 100% better. I’m so grateful to the doctor. I hope if you are thinking of coming here you will take Dr. Forman very seriously because I am very happy with the results. *“

“My name is William and I’ve been a patient of Dr. Forman for about 5 weeks now. I came here originally complaining about issues related to my blood pressure and blood sugar, lack of energy and some sinus problems. I’m happy to report that just a few weeks after coming here I noticed a considerable difference on those symptoms. I’m a lot happier and those numbers have gone down thanks to the knowledge I’ve gained here and the medication. It’s been a relatively easy program to stick to and again, I’m very thankful. *“

“Hi. My name is Kelly and this is Conner. Conner has been seeing Dr. Forman for about 4 months and he is completely healed in my eyes. He’s a happy baby now. No more congestion and bronchial issues like we had before. We both had had the same issues and I’ve been seeing Dr. Forman for about 9 months and once I started feeling a lot better I realized my son had the same issues and he needed to start going as well. As a mom, I feel really bad that my baby was on prednisone, nebulizers, and albuterol for pretty much the first 2 years of his life. And now, with Dr. Forman’s help, my baby is completely well. He has not been sick since he’s been seeing Dr. Forman. I feel like now, when he get’s a cold it won’t turn into something where he needs to go the doctor every time. He can have a cold like a normal child does. So, thank you Dr. Forman. And if I can just get through to one person, because I’m not a holistic person myself, to just try it to see what it can do for you and your family, please, please do so.“

- Kelly (and Conner)

“Hi. My name is Adriana Foster and I would like to make a testimonial for Dr. Forman. I’ve been in his program for 3 months and the difference between the person that I was when I first came here and the person I am now is huge. When I came here I was in a really, really bad place emotionally and physically. I felt really bad. I had really bad depression and anxiety. I can really say that is almost completely away, my life is back, I feel like I’m back on track, like I am back in the world and I can function. And I will always be grateful for that. It’s just totally worth it. So if you’re seeing this, listen, there’s a way out…Dr. Forman. Thank you. *“

“Hello. My name is Rob. I started with Dr. Forman on May 1st. It’s now July 14th. I was diagnosed several years ago with hypothyroidism. I was placed on Synthroid and I realized I was starting to get more bloated, I would exercise and not lose weight, I felt lethargic…I felt ‘crappy’. I was told about Dr. Forman and I came here. He has guided me (and his staff) on how to eat better and how to utilize the supplements they provided. The educational aspects of it has been great and I’m feeling so much better. I’m off the Synthroid and my blood w0rk came back 2 weeks ago and my levels are normal. I feeling very grateful, very energized. Even my depression is virtually gone…I’m just feeling a lot better and a lot positive about things. I feel that now I’m going to be able to lose the weight. So, I’m so grateful to Dr. Forman and his staff. Thank you.“

- Rob

“Hi. I’m Doris. I’m here with Dr. Forman. I’m very happy. I used to get sick. Every month I was getting colds. For more than a year I was taking antibiotics for my cold,so I came to see Dr. Forman. Now I’m in 6 weeks of my treatment and I feel really really well. I’m very happy, very energetic, no more colds. I feel the difference.“

- Doris

“Hello, my name is Juliet and I came to see Dr. Forman a year ago with a number of problems. A major one for me was obesity and the issues with losing the weight. I thought I was coming in to just get a fix on that and a handle on that and what I ended up doing was being able to help fix myself from the inside out, thought I had numerous other issues that I no longer have. I feel better than I ever felt in my life and it’s a long journey and I’ve tried everything before now. It’s just something that I can’t recommend enough to anybody who really needs help; this is the place to go.“

- Juliet

“Hi, my name is Kelly Corso I am 43 years old. I initially started coming because I had chronic bronchial issues, I couldn’t breathe for a long time. I would go to the doctor and they would give me a round of steroids and it would be better for a little bit but it always kept on coming back. So, somebody referred me to Dr. Forman. I didn’t want to take steroids anymore and the fact that it kept coming back I thought that I needed to see him. I did think that it was a bunch of hog wash, I’m not going to lie there, but I was willing to see him because I couldn’t breathe. So, it’s been ten weeks now; I can breathe, I can take a big breathe. I would have to say the biggest plus from the whole thing is that when you go to the doctor for your issue, you may have many other issues but they only want to deal with that one issue at a time. With Dr. Forman, I told him about my whole life’s history of issues from bad breath to fatigue to – you name it I told him. With this process, he’s addressing all of those issues. So not only can I breathe, I don’t have bad breath anymore and I’m not tired anymore – cold hands, whatever it is, it’s really amazing stuff and I think that everyone should participate.“

- Kelly

“Hi, my name is Marieta Marrero. I’ve been with Dr. Forman already for 6 weeks; originally I came because of my Hashimotos thyroid. I wanted to have my hair loss, my shortness of breath, and ringing of the ears under control. I am happy to say that most of my symptoms are already gone with the exception of my hair which we are still working on. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for an alternative to chemicals and medicine to come to him and get a whole different perspective on how to get well from the inside out.“

- Marietta

“Hi, When I started coming to Dr.Forman in late February I had a sleuthed illness, which other doctor could not treat. I had suffered a trauma, Dr.Forman was the first doctor that treated my mind with my body and understood how they’re all connected. He’s a true healer. He was very intuitive and took his and his patience with me and I’m eternally grateful. Now its April and I feel so much better and I sleep so much better and I have so much more energy; and everyone has noticed the change. I’m not one hundred percent yet but I feel confident that ill will be very soon.“

- Melissa

“Hi, Rolando here. This is a testimonial for Dr. Forman. I started off with having blurred vision and generalized dizziness across the board. I have been on this program now for 5 weeks and the blurred vision has been completely eradicated and the dizziness is almost gone. I am going to be on his program longer, but I have seen night and day changes as it is already, thank you.“

- Rolando

“Hi, my name is Elaine and I just want to share with you my testimony. I have been coming to see Dr. Forman for a couple of weeks and the reason I am talking to you is because I really want to share the happiness that I have right now because I was finally able to address the health issues that I’ve been dealing with for a couple of years. I’ve done a lot of research by myself, I mean a lot! I’ve read many books, been to many seminars, I’ve paid lot’s of money for different products and just with a couple of visits to Dr. Forman, he was able to identify what were the stressors that were not making me heal. I just want to share that he gets to the point and addresses them right away, all holistically and very reasonable, price wise; which is very important because there are so many gimmicks out there that cost so much money. And you end up really paying a lot of money for things that actually just don’t work…and this really works. So I’m very happy about that.“

- Elaine

“Hi, my name is Patty and I want to say a few words about Dr. Forman. I started seeing Dr. Forman about 7 or 8 weeks ago. I came to see him primarily because a friend referred me for some similar issues I was struggling with like mental fogginess, inability to just feel good all the time, I had a lot of pain in my body, a lot of inflammation. So I figured I would give it a shot to see if this was something that would work for me to make me feel better in my body and in my mind. I can tell you from the bottom of my heart the last 7 weeks have completely changed the way I feel. I’m able to sleep through the night, I don’t have tingling in my hands and my feet, my head feels a lot clearer, I feel like I’m much more focused and the pain in my body is starting to really get alleviated. So a million words of thanks to Dr. Forman for all that he has done for me in these last 7 weeks. I’m looking forward to the next several months with him and if you have any doubt, if you have anything that is getting in your way physically/mentally, I highly recommend Dr. Forman. He can definitely get you to where you want to be.“

- Patty

“Hello, my name is Quentin. Before I came in I was really stressed out. I had lot’s of anxiety and I was feeling pretty depressed. I’m having symptoms of hair falling out on my beard and also thinning on my head. So once I came to Dr. Forman, it’s been about 3 or 4 weeks, I’m feeling a lot better. I’m handling stress better, I have less anxiety and I’m definitely not feeling any signs of depression at all. I’m also beginning to see the hair growing back on my beard as well as on the top of my head. I’m so glad that I came to see Dr. Forman and I suggest that anybody who has any type of problem to come see him as well.“

- Quentin

“I have been coming to Dr. Forman for about 1 year now. Before I met him my testosterone was low, I had low testosterone. I had double Hernia surgery. And my energy levels were just to the ground. I was doing testosterone therapy as well. It was costing a lot of money. And when I met with him he told me that, you know that's just a banding that we have to go and see what’s going on with the root of the problem. So I started, I took his advice with faith and I have been doing this for a year with him, the Nutrition Response Therapy, and I feel like I am 25 years old again. And I am 42 right now and I could hang out with the 20 year olds in the gym right now. So, I thank him as well with my double Hernia surgery. For my double Hernia surgery, I tried yoga, stretching for about a year before I met with him and then he started doing his therapy and within 3 months, like 80% of the pain went away. So, I thank you Doctor Forman and we'll keep going.“

“I came to see Dr. Forman about 2 months ago. I had a lot of different complaints, anything from feeling tired to not being able to get up in the morning, having very low energy, at the same time I had a big appetite for sweets or snacks, junk food. I felt like it was a vicious cycle because even if I wanted to exercise I didn’t have the energy, or if I’d eat I would feel sluggish afterwards, I had food allergies, back pain and neck pain. It was all very stressful because I tried to fix it all myself and figure out which supplements would work. Then, trying the supplements with Dr. Forman has really brought everything back in line and slowly but surely all the symptoms started going away and now I tell all my friends I’m so happy because I really can’t complain about anything anymore. So I feel extremely good.“

“Hi, my name is Keila and I’m a patient of Dr. Michael Forman. I’ve been seeing Dr. Forman for 5 months now and I feel fabulous. I can for IBS and now I’m feeling so much better. I have no issues at all and I can’t wait to feel 100%. Also, don’t feel like it’s taking too long to reach your goal. You will reach your goal. Just stick to it and keep on coming to see him and I promise you’ll feel better.“

- Keila

“I would like to thank Dr. Forman for helping me through this process. When I first met him I had a lot of issues going on. First of all, I had a lot of stomach issues that I have been dealing with for the past 6 years and whenever I would actually go to a doctor they would give me, like a prev-acid which would take care of the problem temporarily but I did not want to be on that because it really wasn't taking care of the issues themselves. With the education that Dr. Forman provided me as well as the program, I have learned to improve my eating habits, as well as the stomach problems have gone away, which was my biggest issue. For the most part I believed that was the main cause for me having tiredness throughout the day. Earlier, 2:00 would come around and I would feel drained, I would want to take a nap, and I am a mother of 2 kids, so, you know it's important for me not to feel tired all the time. So that's improved. I was also having a lot of issues with acne. I dealt with that for about 2 years and in the past 3 months I have seen that improved, so that really makes me happy because I have to deal with customers on a daily basis, and it feels good when I can actually look at them in the eye and not feel uncomfortable with the acne on my face. Overall, I am just super happy, I feel like I can take on the challenges of life again, so thank you Dr. Forman.“

- Wendy

“I have been seeing Dr. Forman for may be 10 months now. I came to him because I had very bad breakout on my hands, and basically he was my last resort. I had gone and seen regular Doctors. I had seen dermatologists, they put me on steroids, wanted me to take pills, and nothing! There was no positive result out of it. So I came to Dr. Forman and we did the Nutritional Response Testing and my hands went from me being very insecure to having them out and constantly wearing gloves, afraid to clean, to do anything with my hands, to this, almost clear, which is amazing because if you can only imagine they were covered in bumps and they hurt, peeling, and like I said it couldn't do anything, so this is a miracle. Nutritional Response Testing is amazing. Dr. Forman is amazing. I am not insecure about my hands anymore. So thank you very much. I am very happy. Thank you.“

- Mila

“When I first came to Dr. Forman I was having headaches, really bad migraines, pretty much weekly. I was having lot of breathing problems, a lot of general pain and discomfort and that was in the beginning of October. Now it's the beginning of February and I really feel so much better. My headaches and migraines are pretty much gone. I have had one migraine since I have been here. My eating habits have gotten better, my general nutrition is better, my general pain is much better, I sleep better. I think that my breathing has improved by 500%, it’s so much better. And I really believe in what I am doing here and I am so grateful that I have access to it.“

- Raena

“I started using Dr. Forman's program about 12 weeks ago. When I first started with Dr. Forman, I was using my asthma inhaler 5-6 times a day, multiply that by 2, that's anywhere between 10 to 12 times puffs per day. Currently today I haven't used it once at all which is a huge step in the right direction for me and I am really thrilled about that. I also used to have a lot of fatigue, which I no longer have. Shortness of breath as well, which I no longer have. All in all I want to say that my health is probably at a 90% where it used to be and all thanks to Dr. Forman and his prescriptions.“

- Ralph

“Michael is caring, patient and thorough. He is genuinely interested in his patients and takes the time to explain his Nutritional Response Therapy program in great detail; until he knows you understand. In working with him to restore my thyroid health, I have experience great digestive relief and increased energy levels!! I'm excited to experience continued benefits!!“

- Cindy

“I am a patient of Dr. Michael Forman. I have been on the program for about 3 and half months now. When I first started the program I was feeling certain things like rapid heart rate, and other health issues that I was concerned about and although not all of them are 100% better, I feel lot of differences in the way I feel. Being off the program accidentally for a week, I have realized just the impact it was having on me, and now that I am back on the program I am feeling better.“

- Stephanie

“I have been seeing Dr. Forman for about 3 weeks now. I came with ADD problems, problems of concentrating and memory. Since I have been on the program for 3 weeks, I feel like I have more energy, more ability to focus on things I want to focus, and not being distracted by all of the things that have distracted me. I have also been with some asthmatic problems and that has been slowly getting better and better day to day.“

- Hector

“I have been seeing Dr. Michael Forman for about 7 months now. When I first came to see him I was struggling with years of hyperthyroidism. I am only 27. I was diagnosed when I was 22, and at that point I was also just being diagnosed with PCOS. I had seen an Endocrinologist and my OBGYN. My general practitioners had me on numerous medications and nothing was helping. My energy was very low. My skin looked terrible. I couldn't lose weight, I just felt horrible. I have now been seeing Dr. Forman for 7 months. My thyroid medication has been lowered. I am completely off another one of my medications. I feel like a totally different person and my energy is back up. I am able to work out. I am 27, I turned 28 this week, and I can't wait to be 30. I am feeling better than I did when I was 21, and we are on the road to healing.“

- Sydnee

- Jorge

“I just want to let everybody know how I’ve reacted since coming to Dr. Forman. When I came in here I was having problems with my gout, my joints, my libido, and energy levels. In just under a few months that I have been seeing Dr. Forman, my energy level is up, I don‘t have any problems with my uric acid level that was causing the gout. My libido and sex drive is up. I jump out of bed, sleep well and everything has been going just fine, especially with my joints, as I had all kinds of problems with work through the years and it is as if they are lubricated now, it’s great.“

- Richard

“Hi. My name is Frank. I’ve been seeing Dr. Forman since the beginning of February of 2015. I came in with some issues with my stomach, lower abdominal pain, and some vision issues. I’ve been on the program for a couple of months now. Definitely any problems with abdominal and lower pains have gone away. Vision has gotten a lot better. Memory has improved. And overall, I’m feeling great. I have a lot of energy. And that’s it.“

- Frank

“Hello, my name is Limby, and I’ve been coming to Dr. Forman since June 2nd. Today is the 24th. I was having a lot of problems with stomach, digestion, and hemorrhoids, and a lot of pain. Since I’ve been coming here and following his regime, or regimen, I’ve been feeling a lot better. I don’t have any pains anymore. My hemorrhoids are a lot better. I’m feeling a lot better overall, so I really…I’m looking forward to getting better with all of the recommendations that he’s giving me.“

- Limby

“So I came into Dr. Forman, and I was not having a good time with my energy at all. Really feeling like I needed to take one to two naps a day. By 8 o’clock at night it just felt like I was going just going to keel over and just really needed to sleep. And this last week I just really felt a change and could stay up until 11, even midnight, with just a lot of energy. And so I just really feel like my energy level is increasing dramatically, and it’s just really exciting to think that I’m on a path of healing.“

- Anonymous

“Hi. I’m here to share my story with you. I have been under a lot of stress with my mouth and my tongue and I have seen 10 doctors so far since March. Nobody seems to know what I had until I cam to see Dr. Forman, Michael Forman. He does Oriental medicine and he’s been treating me for the past 4 weeks. Miraculously, nothing I have right now on my tongue. Everything is working perfect, I am so blessed, I’m overwhelmed that I don’t have anything on my tongue or in my mouth. So I encourage you to come and see Dr. Forman for any issues you may have. Thanks.“

- Elba

“I came to Dr. Forman since march15. And I felt very very tired. I also have thyroid problems. And basically I could not wake up in the morning from my bed. I managed in the time of 4 or 5 months to feel a lot better and now I’m doing my techniques, I don’t get sick anymore and I’m very happy with Dr. Forman and all his supplements.“

“Before coming to Dr. Forman’s office I had a couple of issues including 3 years of stomach discomfort due to gastritis and joint pain in my left knee. After only just about 5 weeks into the program with Dr. Forman, I have improved immensely. My stomach discomfort is almost gone and my knee pain is also just about gone as well. Thank you for your help Dr. Forman!“

- Maria

“When I came to Dr. Forman’s office I was struggling with being overweight, tiredness, stomach problems and loss of hair. After being on Dr. Forman’s program I have seen much improvement. I have found it easier to and have lost weight. My energy not only came back but I have found it to be even better than I can ever remember. My bowel movements have been very regular and my hair loss has dramatically improved. I am very satisfied with my improvements thus far with Dr. Forman and am excited for what is to come!“

- Kathy

“Before coming to Dr. Forman I was dependent on focus enhancing supplement and I had a gut feeling something was wrong so I decided to come in 45 days ago. If I didn’t take focus enhancing supplement it was certain that I wouldn’t have the energy or focus that day to complete my job. After only 45 days on the program, there’s life without focus enhancing supplement! I feel great again; I have the energy and focus I need to outperform at my job every day. I thank Dr. Forman for the help and support throughout these past couple of weeks and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their health!“

- Bobby B

“I was taking armour (.15) for about a year and still not feeling my best despite blood tests showing great results and I wanted to stop armour. I don't like being dependent on meds, especially if they aren't really working. After seeing Dr Forman for about 6 months I was able to stop the medication, and I am now feeling good (normal), and happy to not be on any meds. I continue to see Dr Forman to maintain good health.“

- Laura

“I was weighing 234 lbs. and had severe symptoms as a result of my Type II diabetes. I had excessive thirst, strange tingling on my feet, bloated stomach pains and blurry vision amongst other symptoms. My fasting blood sugar was over 130. My overall mood was depressed and my energy was very low. In about one month following Dr. Forman’s recommendations, my health has dramatically improved. The major symptoms of my condition have diminished dramatically, my vision is restored, my feet have much less pain and stress and my stomach pain stopped. My overall mood is better and I have much less fatigue. My fasting blood sugar has come down to a normal range.“

- John

“Before I cam to see Dr. Forman I had Type II diabetes with an A1c level of 8.5. I was hungry all the time, urinating frequently, had night sweats and mild neuropathy. I was constantly craving sugar and carbs. After seeing Dr. Forman for 3 ½ months, my A1c levels are down to 5.5 and I feel much better. I have little to no carb cravings, I have less fatigue, I’m not hungry all day and the neuropathy went away.“

- Cristiano

“Before I visited Dr. Forman, I was diabetic, suffered from sleep disorder, and faced digestive problems. In just 3 months of seeing Dr. Michael Forman, there have been a lot of positive changes. I have lost weight, I'm taking less insulin, and no longer taking Nexium. My sleep has improved dramatically.“

- Lorin

“When I first came in, I had several stomach issues that included bloating and constipation. I also had ringing in my right ear. For the past two years I have been suffering severe acne (cystic acne). I often felt tired and drained. I felt hopeless because my primary doctor or Gastroenterologist were unable to provide me an effective treatment to help me heal.I no longer suffer from painful stomach issues. The ringing in my ear has completely disappeared. My acne has improved dramatically. I feel energized and I'm ready to take on the world. I feel so blessed to have found Dr. Michael Forman.“

- Wendolyn

“I have nothing but accolades for Michael Forman, DOM. I can feel a dramatic difference in my overall health in the short time I've been under his care. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Beyond his knowledge of medicine and nutrition is a deeper intuitive wisdom that enables him to access and treat the root causes of health issues in a holistic way. He is a true healer.“

- Marbeth

“Dr. Forman is one of the most knowledgeable physicians I've met. He is professional and extremely passionate about his work. He focuses on finding results by working on the source of your problems. I had an amazing experience with him and I have referred multiple friends and clients that I know will benefit from his services. I have the utmost respect for him and his integrity. Highly recommend.“

- Joanne

“I started my treatment with Dr. Michael Forman a few months ago and after seeing positive results in my health there are several things I would like to mention about him: His approach is very unique and is designed for me. That means that he doesn't just prescribe a general medicine, but he focuses more on the proper nutrition that MY body needs in order to heal. The most important thing that I've learned with Dr. Forman is that my participation in my healing process is crucial, and that modifies my behavior guiding me towards healthy things and makes me learn about what makes me healthy and what makes me sick on my nutrition. That is priceless for me because gives me a sense of empowerment and responsibility over my own health. The treatment I'm taking with Dr. Forman, Nutrition Response Testing, really resonates with my inner self and it makes sense because is very effective and works according to my own body. The treatment doesn't focus on eliminating symptoms but going to the causes of any illness. Eliminate the cause, eliminate the illness. I'm very happy with Dr. Forman, because besides being a good doctor, He sees you as a human being and not like a number or like a piece of machinery. I recommend Dr. Forman because I'm seeing results in my own life!“

- Gonzalo

“Dr. Forman is an amazing healer and is one of the best in his field. I highly recommend him for chronic issues as well as simple stress relief or preventative medicine.“

- Harimandir

“Michael Forman blends a knowledge of applied kinesiology with an expertise in nutrition and acupuncture to provide an impressive way to diagnose and treat a variety of common health issues. I came to him with several seemingly unrelated symptoms that, while certainly not very serious, were annoying and getting worse, and apparently shared a common cause according to Chinese medicine. His use of precisely dosed whole food nutritional supplements as a complementary treatment to acupuncture has helped to resolve these issues at the cause, so both symptom and root problem are eliminated. That's a great way to address a health problem. It's nice to know that, after years of tolerating those issues, there is hope. I have, and will continue to, refer people I know to Michael. Thank you!“

- Todd

“Michael Forman has improved my health in a tangible and significant way. I would recommend anyone who wants to live a more vibrant life to seek out Michael.“

- Hillary

“I was tired, stressed, overwhelmed with school and work. I was experiencing hair loss, irregular menstruation, poor memory, dry skin, and all signs of hyperthyroidism. Now, all my symptoms have improved. I feel younger; my endocrine system seems more balanced. I have trust in Dr. Forman and I feel confident about the program.“

- Vivian

“My energy was extremely low and I had a terrible relationship with food. I felt like I was not taking care of myself. Without the knowledge of doing it better, I felt angry, emotional and anxious. Now, I feel that my body is turning back to a healthier shape and reaching a better state of energy. I have better control of my emotions, sleeping better and deeper. I'm less angry and less anxious. I'm learning what I need to – taking care of my body, which also benefits my mind and my relationship with my family and people around me, as I am becoming a better version of myself.“

- Paula

“I came to Dr. Forman for acne on my face and back and dry skin. I seldom got my period and when I did it was extremely painful and lasted much longer than it normally should. I felt bloated in general, but especially after eating. Now, my skin is clearing on my face and back like magic! I no longer have dry skin on my hands. My period comes when it is supposed to and there is no bloating or cramps or nausea. My arms and legs have lost fat.“

- Louise

“I was always tired, irritable, moody, anxious, unable to sleep & didn't go to the bathroom regularly. After seeing Dr. Forman, I am not irritable, moody or anxious just on rare days. I go to the bathroom more regularly and am no where near as tired. I can get more done in the day.“

- Lana

“When I began my treatment with Dr. Forman I was experiencing chronic stomach aches, headaches and fatigue. Now, I no longer have stomach aches. My headaches are few and in between I have more energy. Thank you!“

- Jennifer

“Before i used to feel bloated. I was suffering from migraine headaches. Always tired. In general feeling sick and old. Now, I’m getting my energy back, feeling young and fit. My waist is getting smaller and not getting bloated.“

- Marilyn

“I was taking 75 units of insulin injection each day. I had acid reflux about every night. I had high blood pressure and I was overweight. After 8 months, I am no longer taking insulin injection (gradually supervised and approved by my MD) and I no longer take Nexium. I now have normal blood pressure and I lost 25 lbs since I started at Total Health Restoration.“

- Lorin

“I had a chronic challenge with fatigue and my metabolism. I did not feel like my food was distributing energy to my body. Therefore I felt weak and tired. This was a result of a thyroid malfunction that was diagnosed almost 40 years ago. Since seeing Dr. Forman my energy started increasing almost immediately, as if a veil had been lifted. I felt like I was more connected with my body and I slowly I noticed that I was beginning to lose weight without making any effort.“

- Susan

“My voice was raspy and I had a hard time keeping the integrity of my voice without straining it. I felt swollen and no matter how much I exercised, I still did not feel lean. I was always congested, needed to use a nose spray and antihistamine. Since seeing Dr. Forman my voice no longer is raspy and my throat feels good. I feel lean and healthy. No congestion and no need for spray or antihistamine.“

- Susy

“I was having a hard time sleeping, focusing, and was always tired. Since seeing Dr. Forman I have much more energy. My focus is better and I can sleep through the night. My family and friends have asked “what have I been doing?“

- Pablo

“I came to see Dr. Forman after being diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (Hypothyroidism). At the time, I was experiencing a perfect storm of symptoms I didn’t know were related to my condition. Both of my parents are on medication for this condition, and I was determined to not follow in their footsteps. I saw five different traditional doctors of varying specialties who were unsuccessfully treating my various symptoms. In addition to that, I experienced a trauma and didn’t realize how much my mind was affecting my already-compromised body. Dr. Forman was the first doctor to treat me while considering this mind-body connection. His patience and intuition enables him to treat the person behind the ailment(s); his extensive knowledge of the human body enables him to treat the cause not just the symptom.  I believe I am finally on the road to total health restoration.“

- Melissa

“Before coming to see Dr. Forman I was tired, depressed and had issues coming after my chemo treatments. Now after some time, I’m feeling much better. I’m not tired anymore, my anxiety and depression are gone and I’m coming out of my fog.“

- Angel

“When I first came to see Dr. Forman I was tired all the time, in a brain fog and had difficulty sleeping. I was taking 3 hour naps at a time. I had difficulty in comprehending directions and had to ask others for assistance. After 8 weeks I feel amazingly better! I rarely take a nap anymore and I have the energy to de everything I do in a day including weight training, volunteer work, walking my dog etc. I am also focused now and can grasp directions quickly.“

- Thalia

“When I came to Dr. Forman I had anxiety, difficulty sleeping, I was bloated and my,,psoriasis was getting worse. In short, I felt like my best days were behind me. After working with Dr. Forman my appearance is of a very healthy person. My psoriasis is way better, I’ve lost weight in a healthy and sensible manner, I am full of vigor and my outlook is no longer gloomy and anxious.“

- Omar

“When I cam to see Dr. Forman I felt extreme anxiety, palpitations, bloating and gas. I have always had a relatively healthy diet. However, since seeing Dr. Forman, I have never felt better. I though I was at a health peak, but now I am really at a health peak. My bloating and gas are completely gone as are my anxiety and the associated symptoms with it. Thank you Dr. Forman!“

- Veronica

“Even though I thought I ate healthy and exercise regularly, I felt tired all the time and could not get a restful night’s sleep. My thoughts were scrambled and I felt mentally foggy. I was not able to perform mentally to my capacity. I also gad frequent and recurring anxiety and mood swings. I was easily triggered to irritation and had frequent headaches with light and noise sensitivity. After 5 weeks my anxiety is gone, my mood has stabilized; I feel mentally clearer, sharper and have more motivation. Over the past 5 weeks I feel like my thoughts have slowly been coming back into focus. I have more energy and regularly get a restful night’s sleep. I no longer have the bloating around my waist and have not had a headache in several weeks.“

- Linda

Brief History Of Acupuncture

The practice of acupuncture goes back earlier than recorded history. The most noteworthy development occurred during the period of Huang Di, the Yellow Emperor. During the period of 305 BC - 204 BC, the book titled Nei Jing (The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine) was compiled; one part of this book is called the Ling Shu, and its focus is on acupuncture. The progress of acupuncture continued in the time following the reign of Huang Di, with significant development occurring during the Sui (581 AD - 618 AD), Tang (618 - 649), Song (960 - 1279), and Ming (1568 - 1644) dynasties.

The popularity of acupuncture in China would wax and wane in the following generations. In 1950 Chairman Mao integrated TCM and Western medicine, thereby ensuring that acupuncture would be an important part of healthcare. Since then, acupuncture has seen a sharp rise in popularity among many countries of the world as more people discover how efficacious it as at safely treating a variety of illnesses.

What Is Acupuncture And How Does It Work?

Acupuncture focuses on managing the body’s life force, called Qi (pronounced chee), which flows through channels called meridians. The belief behind Qi is that the body is in balance when Qi flows freely and it is in pain or stress when the Qi is out of balance. Acupuncture restores the flow of Qi by placing long, thin needles in specific places on the meridians called acupressure points or acupoints.

There is also a scientific theory which states that acupuncture promotes the release of endorphins during the procedure. Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and they are produced by the central nervous system and the pituitary gland. The theory behind acupuncture’s effect on gastrointestinal problems is that it has an effect on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Acupuncture has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, which is one of the reasons why it is such an effective technique for pain relief.


What Physical Problems Can Acupuncture Treat?

Other Applications Of Acupuncture

Aside from providing pain relief, acupuncture is also an effective treatment for infertility in both men and women. It cannot fix problems that are physical in nature such as blocked fallopian tubes or endometriosis scarring in women, or blocked ejaculation ducts in men.

For women, acupuncture can be an effective standalone treatment because it can improve ovarian and follicular function and improve blood flow to the endometrium. It can also be used to improve the chances of success of other fertility treatments like donor egg transfer or IVF. For men, acupuncture has been shown to improve sperm quality and sperm motility.

Acupuncture And Mental Health

Acupuncture is also highly beneficial in providing relief from stress, depression, and anxiety. In laboratory tests on rats, acupuncture was shown to lower the blood hormone level secreted by the HPA (Hypothalamus Pituitary Adrenal) axis. The HPA axis controls the body’s reaction to stress, and acupuncture blocks the elevation of the hormones produced by the axis. NPY (Neuropeptide Y) is a peptide that modulates the stress response. Acupuncture has also been shown to affect the production of NPY in a way that lowers the overall stress level of the person receiving the treatment.

This scientific analysis proves that acupuncture is a good way to reduce stress and anxiety levels, and that it is also a favorable way of helping with depression. Anyone who is suffering from depression should see a doctor first and follow the regimen they provide. However, acupuncture is an effective supplement—but not a replacement—to any treatment for depression.

What Are The Different Types Of Acupuncture?

  • Korean Hand Acupuncture - As the name suggests, this form of acupuncture is focused on the acupressure points in the hand that can be used to treat the whole body.

  • Japanese Acupuncture - This is a more minimalist type of acupuncture treatment. It uses fewer and thinner needles, fewer acupuncture points, and the needle insertion is shallower.

  • Scalp Acupuncture - This involves inserting acupuncture needles directly into the scalp. This kind of acupuncture is effective in treating problems related to the spine.

  • Auricular Acupuncture - This involves inserting needles into the ear, because it is seen as the body part with many connections to the major organs.

  • Electric Acupuncture - This is like regular acupuncture except that the needles are connected to an electrostimulator that sends a mild electric current into the needles. This produces a soft, tingling sensation; this treatment is believed to augment standard acupuncture.

  • Non-Insertion Acupuncture - Per the name, this does not involve any penetration by the acupuncture needles at all. Instead, blunt silver or platinum needles are placed against the acupuncture points on the body.
