"This program gave me a new (food) life, and better health. I'm proud of myself with respect to food for the first time in a very long time. Thanks to Anita Capizzi, my pants are too big for me now! I lost an inch on the waist and hips, eating incredibly delicious food.
Before enrolling in the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I had dessert most nights of the week. I was a corn-bread connoisseur. My doctor was alarmed at my high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, along with blood sugar levels. I felt like the world was coming down on me, and that my age was catching up with me. I felt depressed and resentful that I would need to make a change.
After completing the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I feel like I have control. I don't feel resentful about what's required to be healthier it in the least. I eat incredibly delicious food, and yes, sometimes I'd rather not take the time to prepare it. But I do, nine times out of ten - nobody's perfect. Now my clothes are too big, and my doctor is delighted with my blood tests. I didn't think I could do it, I thought it would be too big of a life change, but Anita showed me how and made it fun. I am her biggest fan" L.H. 6/7/13

"Dr. Freeman’s pragmatic and knowledgeable approach to autism literally changed our son’s life (and ours too!). Three years ago our son was in an intensive autism program, and we were told he would never speak. Now he is in a learning center under the general education curriculum, and next year he will be integrated in a typical classroom with shadow. He is now interacting with peers, and telling us about his day at school every evening. He is back, and that we mostly owe to Dr. Freeman, who progressively identified and fixed the most handicapping autism-related symptoms, such as PANDAS and HHV6. Why her? Because she is totally dedicated to her mission and fight against autism, she is certainly methodic and brilliant, she is patient and never rushes anybody or anything, and she explains in detail what she is doing. Apart from that, she also proved very good in addressing the Lyme disease of my husband." 6/15

I am so happy." 3/ 2013

I have several close friends who are dentists and surgeons and after going to 3 of them (all making a valiant attempt) we did not know what to else to do. My business partner referred us to Dr. Mark McClure and to make a long story short - Dr. Mark McClure is nothing short of amazing along with his right hand man and staff!! I am utterly grateful for the care we received. The 'bedside manner', addressing and respecting my son as an individual, gaining his trust and agreement and the team work that we observed still leaves me in awe - I can only aspire to care for my own patients to the degree that we were cared for at NIHA." 6/3/13

"Dr. McClure and Staff,
I had my 6 mercury amalgams taken out approximately 5 weeks ago and it was the best dental experience of my life.
The protocol of detoxing first along with allergy testing gave me greater confidence in NIHA Dental caring for my needs.
The whole procedure was seamless to me. Upon driving back to work I realized my head felt lighter and I didn't even have the sick feeling that I usually get from the novocaine.
The followup was great and the fact NIHA Dental educates the patient to do continued detoxification because of the mercury as well as other environmental factors that will detract from our health.
I also have had slight restless leg syndrome; no symptoms have occurred since my fillings were taken out. Mercury free and I'm loving it.
Many thanks for your dedicated service of healing!" 10/15
"No pain! The dentist and asst. were very kind, gentle and helped me to relax." 11/15
I am emailing to THANK YOU Maureane and Dr. McClure for teaching me to use MFT (a.k.a., “tapping”) as part of a daily meditation practice. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Every condition that I have meditated on using this technique, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, has either improved or been resolved (the condition usually improving at first and then quickly or eventually becoming resolved). Know also that I believe that the amazing success I have had is due in part to a) the incorporation of reading spiritual literature prior to meditation (in my case, usually Emmet Fox) and b) a growing effort to improve my mental perception of any subject/condition/person.
It seems to be a very powerful method of improving any problematic condition…and I am somewhat amazed that it is not more commonly practiced.
To help explain the success I have experienced from almost daily practice in the last 12 months (following a VERY low point in my life), here is a list of some of the conditions that have I have specifically meditated on and that either have been resolved or are improving (and, by the way, I’ve found that MFT does not always change the situation itself but provides someone that can).
Conditions improved or resolved using MFT…
-Unresolved back pain disappeared
-Unresolved pain in foot (possible neuroma) disappeared
-Several weeks of chest discomfort and coughing disappeared
-Anxiety is lower overall and lowers immediately upon start of practice and continues for most of the day
-Faith is being restored (at a VERY low point last year)
-Sense of well-being is improving
-More enthusiastic about daily living, “keeping house” (and yard), daily meditation, and all chores
- Relationship with husband has improved or resolved on whatever issue was troublesome (and – in defense of his honor – there are only a few)
- Client queue is increasing and usually full
- Clients returned to paying on time
- Better able to get my work done
- More enthusiastic about work
- Company prosperity is growing
And now for the really-hard-to-believe…Pets (two 18 year-old cat siblings):
-Male cat’s colon resumes working nearly every time I use MFT (cat has a severe neurological problem that affects walking and occasionally interferes with colon working; condition is significant to require at-home or under-anesthesia enemas)
-Male cat’s teeth healed within 2 months of applying MFT (veterinary determined that two teeth must be removed; upon a return visit it was determined that they had improved so much that removal was not required)
-Female cat’s demeanor has improved (especially in the early morning) – She may be becoming hard of hearing and has become impossibly loud when she wants attention.
Dr. McClure and entire dental staff, "Thank you so much for your kindness, patience and courtesy. I am petrified of dental offices and I really appreciate all that you did for me. The care received from NIHA is irreplaceable in Washington DC.." 7/13
"What great dental care by Dr. McClure! He does such a professional job, makes the patient feel very confident."
"Before my treatment with Dr. McClure I lived in almost constant pain...It's been about 3 months since we moved from DC to our new home in New Jersey and I had considerable improvement in my physical and mental condition. Even though some of my problems still persist (especially low energy and poor bowel function), I haven't had a single severe headache attack during these 3 months. It's a true miracle! Before my treatment with Dr. McClure I lived in almost constant pain. Now I continue my at-home detox treatment and hope to get even better.
I thank God for His blessings, for Dr. McClure, for NIHA and for all wonderful people I met there. Your grateful patient."
"Dr.McClure is the most caring & informative dentist I have ever known. My bite is better than it has ever been and it was hard to know how bad it really was until I felt what "great" feels like. THANK YOU!
"Dr. McClure is the best dentist I have ever found. He believes in the healing power of the body and thus only uses procedures that work with it. He only does what is absolutely necessary- saving the patient money and time."
"This visit was the best example of the strength and service of Dr. McClure; I saw Laurie for cleaning, then Dr. McClure suggested a solution to my allergy to smoke. " 2/13
"Dr.McClure is a wellspring of knowledge, dental excellence, and just good energy."
"I really liked Dr.McClure's gentle manner while performing my dental procedure."
"Most satisfactory part is I am still alive. If not for Dr. McClure and Niha staff I would have died 4 years ago. I am eternally grateful to Dr. McClure and NIHA. Thank you!!" 2/13
"Dr. Weiner was very informative and thorough. Integrating dental with overall health; cutting edge knowledge of nutrition and mind/body connection. He answered questions no one else could or would answer." 9/15

"NIHA is a great holistic medical practice."
"If you are willing to step out in faith and try something radical, this HCG Weight Loss program will change your life. It changed mine! I lost a total of 61.5lbs over 2 program sessions, including an 8 week transition. I went from a size 14 to a size 4 in 5 months and my waist went from 40” to 27’’. I was most astonished by where I lost the weight. I literally watched my stomach, hips and thighs shrink. I currently have the flattest stomach I have ever had, even though I have been at this weight in the past.
This program changed the way I think about eating and helped me to overcome my addiction to carbohydrates. What is equally amazing is how great I felt from eating an organic and non-processed food diet. This also resulted in my entire family eating healthier!! Furthermore, my allergy symptoms cleared up, and the headaches that I had previously experienced on a monthly basis were gone. I experienced a high level of energy and focus throughout the program and the sheer joy from the weight loss is indescribable! Sometimes I do not even recognize myself in the mirror.
The transition program is critical to long term success on this program. My biggest fear was that I would gain the weight back shortly after the weight loss phase ended. This fear was dissolved when I lost a total of 9 lbs during the 8 week transition period. The transition program is very well laid out and guided and is easy to follow. The consultants were there every step of the way to answer all my questions and give me daily tips and encouragement. Don’t wait, start today. It will be the greatest gift you can give to yourself!"
"I look forward to each visit (with Dr. McClure and Debbie McCabe) for my treatment and learning so much about health. NIHA has not only changed my health for now but also for my future.

NOTE* Yes, all true. To address this issue, we suggest you book your 6 month appointment prior to leaving the office so you can be assured of getting your preferred time frame- and we have added another experienced hygienst so that you will not have to wait long for an appointment.
"Everything is more than satisfactory. Laurie is the best dental technician I've ever encountered, and always a pleasure to talk to." 11/19/13
"Most satisfactory was the way Laurie (dental hygienist) treated me and my son, with friendliness and gave us information about what we needed to do to improve our oral hygiene." 11/25/13
"Laurie is always competent and cheerful. Check-out often takes too long- computer system seems way too slow and/or complicated." 12/5/13
NOTE** We were upgrading to a new computer system during your visit. As our staff becomes more proficient the new system should provide a speedier check out for our patients.
"Laurie DeRosa is an excellent hygienist and her skill and expertise is evident in her work and the way she relates to patients."

"Just wanted to say that Marie's professionalism and courteousness were a wonderful finish to a great appointment. Customer service from support (transaction desk) is just as- if not more important- than from practitioners." 3/8/13
Maureane OShaugnessy, I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the role you played in helping me get healthier! Your care was beyond phenomenal as you explained in great detail why I was experiencing some of the ailments I was experiencing. You are truly gifted at what you do. You helped me recover not just physically but emotionally as well. My time with you was well-spent as I learned how to take care of not just my physical health, but my emotional health as well....thank you for being so compassionate, knowledgeable, and enlightening! You are amazing! 4/21/13
"Maureane O'Shaugnessy is fantastic! She listens and gives me excellent advice and counsel. Checkout at the office can occasionally be backed up which can be frustrating if I am trying to get out the door for my next appointment." 4/13
I have had the pleasure of working with Maureane O’Shaugnessy. Maureane’s gift is her ability to reach the inner foundations of psycho-emotional issues. She not only assists patients in seeing the correlation of their past traumas and current predicaments; but she also provides a comfortable and safe space for people to grow and express. Maureane utilizes many tools to facilitate her accomplishments including Automonic Response Testing; Emotional Freedom Technique, and the Healing Codes among others. As a holistic practitioner, I believe work on an emotional level is paramount to total healing. Maureane beautifully assists others on this path of wellness. Dr. Tracy Freeman

"Chronic illnesses can often have a psychological and energetic component that is not merely biological. Maureane O'Shaugnessy has an invaluable gift for treating the whole person and seeing the bigger picture surrounding an illness. I have made remarkable gains in my personal life as well as my medical situation. She is patient-focused and able to listen like few medical professionals I've encountered. I highly recommend that every client of NIHA try at least a few sessions with Maureane. You will be pleasantly amazed. And it would not surprise me if you saw almost immediate results."
"Dr. McClure and his dental staff are the best of the best in talent, knowledge and personality. They work as a team which is the most effective way to accomplish goals."
Myrt took so much time with me and shared so much helpful information about colonics. She really cared! 4/16
"Would be great if there was somehow coordination between different doctors on treatment (e.g. Dr. Rind and Dr. Gant). Also I was lucky to get the first appointment today. Usually I am frustrated at how much time everything takes. However, I do very much appreciate how much time the doctors spend with me." 2/28/13
"Thank you for the incredible service experience. Everyone was kind, efficient and knowledgeable."
"NIHA was disconnected. I waited 2 hours for the doc, but I have to say it was worth the wait." 3/12/13
"I haven't been able to access a particular coordinator's and practitioner's direct extension using the automated system. I have to keep going through the receptionist. Maybe that could be fixed." 2/13

" I am always impressed with the level of care at NIHA." 9/6/13

I am very grateful to NIHA for this and all that it offers to the community for each of our well being. It was extremely helpful to me with all that I am trying to achieve in my challenge of breast cancer.Thank you from the bottom of my heart." 10/11

"Not only did I lose weight, but healed numerous health issues...
Through her incredible guidance, Eve has opened my eyes to a whole new world in which we can actually control our overall physical and mental health through proper nutrition. I first signed up to take their course to lose weight, however they quickly taught me that with proper nutrition, not only can I lose those extra pounds, but also alter my eating habits to heal numerous health issues. I feel so empowered as am now personally in control of my health. They are remarkable and inspiring educators and I truly feel that her class has changed my life for the better."
"After years of deteriorating health, misdiagnosis and failed treatments, I sought out NIHA for help. I immediately knew they were experts at the forefront of mercury related health issues and a breath of fresh air from my previous experiences in healthcare. I decided to go through with their recommended removal of 20+ amalgam surfaces and the extraction of 1 root canalled tooth. After only 2 weeks I have already experienced the most dramatic abatement of symptoms in years; my sinuses have cleared allowing me to sleep at night; my face and shoulder pain has been cut in half.; and my chronic fatigue has begun to subside. For the first time in years I am optimistic about my future health prospects."
"I felt I was in very capable hands. Scott Richards explained the desensitization process in a way that gave me hope."
"With Scott Richard's education, explanation, attitude and treatment I noticed shifts in my body tension, releasing right away."
"Scott has been working with me all year to detoxify mercury. The allergy doc suggested I see him and Scott's desensitization of me had enabled me to get rid of a lot of it."
"After having my appointment with Scott Richards I immediately felt my spirits lifted and I was suffering a lot of lower back pain and after the desensitization my pain decreased significantly. Scott was very thorough and expressed genuine concern for my well being. I appreciate all that he has done for me and hope to see him again." 9/14
" I had AET, Allergy Elimination Technique, for heavy metal sensitivity with Scott Richards before removal of my mercury dental fillings. After the AET session, the ear pressure and chronic inflammation that I had for over 2 decades resolved literally overnight. I had additional AET sessions for MCS and tree/grass pollen. My symptoms have improved so much that I no longer need to take any antihistamines, and I was taking them 10 months of the year before AET. 4/15
For the first time since our head-on collision 4 yrs. ago, R. not only fell asleep in the car, but told us he was sleepy, that he was not scared and then reclined his seat. And NO screaming or freaking out in traffic and yelling at us to pull over and let tailgaters pass. You are a miracle worker! 2/16
"Really enjoyed Scott. He is gifted and intuitive, We are thankful for all we learned today and purpose to follow up. Already checking out those necklaces that can help with EMF protection. Peace was in the atmosphere. The staff was professional and there was an overall tendency to help us, not hurry us. We like that! 2/13/13
"Scott Richards gave his attention to us all day. Everything was explained- he followed through and confirmed our understanding, explained clearly. Respectful and supportive. Honestly, the visit was an amazing experience. From the initial phone call directly through 2 days of testing and assessments with Dr. Gant. Questions were answered, information provided, all staff helpful, respectful and friendly. More space in the exam room would be nice but does not impact the experience." 11/14
"An all the way around experience! Staff and facility amazing. The medical expertise and information provided was beyond all hopes. Thank you." 11/14
Susan Greenberg was extremely personable, informative and has impeccable expertise. She is empathetic and provided stellar service. 5/13

"Hi Scott, I'm providing you a follow-up on the results of the first Erchonia Laser treatment. Well I am happy to say it’s working – more than just working, the results are absolutely remarkable!
At first I thought it wasn’t going to help at all. I started to feel really lousy after leaving your office. When I got home around 7:30PM, I immediately went to bed (which is highly usual for me). I slept miserably – I felt feverish all night, the cup of my left heel was hot (where I have the scar from the tendon surgery) and I was experiencing sharp and dull pains on the right side of my body from mid-calf to shoulder. It was so uncomfortable I got up out of bed @ about 1:00AM and did not return to bed until around 3:30AM. I thought it must be the laser treatment and questioned what I had done to myself.
When I awoke on Friday morning at 5:45AM - my usual time to get ready for work; something felt really different in my knees. The pain in my left knee was barely noticeable except for around the edges of the areas I had been complaining about; and in my right knee the pinching sensation from the torn meniscus was gone.
That day I was able to walk up and down stairs with very little pain. Rising from a sitting position was also less difficult.
Since Friday, my condition has only gotten better. I can walk up and down stairs without caution and any really bothersome pain. And rising from a sitting position is also much better. I don’t how long the treatment(s) are supposed to last, but I am really interested in developing a long-term treatment plan that will encompass traditional medicine, laser, prolotheraphy and possibly PRP."
"I love the personal attention and time spent answering my questions (about thermography), explaining everything, & address all issues. Unlike any other medical experience." 7/ 17/13
