“In 1995, at the age of 45, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. In September, 2000 my neurologist told me I could no longer drive because of the side effects of the drugs I was taking to manage the symptoms of the disease. At that point, I had tried some alternative supplements & treatments, but was mostly following Western medicine’s protocol of medications. Not being able to drive at only 50 years of age was enough to make me search for other ways of managing this illness. In January, 2001, I started loglutathione IVs & taking supplements regularly. In March, I started seeing Dr. Bonnie twice a week for a specific protocol using electro-stim & acupuncture. I received deep tissue massages at Wellspring once a week, had occasional chiropractic adjustments, followed dietary recommendations & got regular exercise. All of this allowed me to cut my drug intake in half, so that by the end of May I was allowed to drive again! There is no doubt in my mind that acupuncture plays a huge role in controlling the symptoms I experience. I am grateful to Dr. Bonnie Walker & her staff for their concern & support.”

“Being born in a large city one would think a person would be very open minded to many new and different things. Not so. I was born to a community that believed in only medicine to cure what ails you. If you were sick, pop an antibiotic, if you had back problems have surgery. Several years ago, I became a believer in Dr. Bonnie’s work in chiropractic and acupuncture disciplines. Four years ago, an orthopedic surgeon told me that I would need knee replacement surgery. With help from Bonnie and myself, I run 3 times per week and never had the surgery. Currently I have been having back problems of which Bonnie has been treating me for several weeks and I already feel better. If you don’t believe, than you should believe. If you have not tried alternative medicines, what can it hurt? It just might help!”

“My headaches started in the third grade. I started missing school and didn’t want to participate in most activities because this would bring my headaches on. I had all sorts of tests done. (MRI’s, Cat Scans, Blood test). They all showed nothing wrong. I tested for allergies and soon started on allergy shots. These did not work and at times made my headaches worse. In the 6th grade, I was put in the hospital to break a ten day migraine. After I got out, they wanted to send me to a neurologist for more tests. My mom brought me to Wellspring Chiropractic clinic where Dr. Bonnie started treating me with acupuncture. I was nervous at first but just wanted my headaches to go away. After just a few visits, I started feeling much better. I have quit my allergy shots and all medications. I have more energy now and can participate in sports again. My headaches are gone and for the first time in 3 years I feel normal.”
