Dental, "I saved thousands of dollars and left feeling cared for."

Dr. Cannon

Dr. Cannon really listens, and is very thorough. I come in with lots of questions and anxieties and I leave with concrete strategies and peace of mind. Thank you! 11/17

"NIHA saved my health and my life- twice!"

I first came to NIHA in 1999. After that I went for 5 years without so much as a cold. I'm 69 years old and on no prescription medications at all! I attribute that to the health restoration from NIHA when I worked with the practice from late 1999 into 2001.
But recently I have had several other issues with pain and diverticulitis and abcesses found in my colon. I went through my insurance and sought medical advice from traditional physicians. In a short period of time, they recommended that I get a pic line for antibiotics, and schedule a hospital stay for colon re-section surgery.

I know the importance of a whole body approach, a healthy diet, and practicing meditation and Reiki (Master level) on a daily basis and do my best to make my health a priority.The thought of colon surgery as my only option for healing did not fit with my understanding of what my body needed. So- I went back to NIHA because I needed a program with hope. I needed to find a physician who knew what was going on with me internally and could help me address my health issues.
Dr. Margarita Kullick is that person. She was able to read the MRI and immediately put me on a protocol addressing colon inflammation, diverticulitis pouches, two abscesses, two fistula and boosting overall health. Both my previous and current health issues were stress induced but created extremely different symptoms.
Now, months after being on Dr. Kullick's protocol, I feel the best I have felt in 10 years. My body has come back into balance to heal itself. The change is unbelievable. I no longer have colon inflammation, the diverticulitis pouches are no longer swollen, the abcesses are smaller and healing, and the fistula has healed.
She is wonderful and I adore her. NIHA has saved my health- and my life- twice! It is worth every penny to me. 11/17

Dr. Gant, my daughter...now has hope!

 

I have nothing but good things to say! This is the place you go when you have exhausted every doctor possible and you will get the attention and the results you have been looking for! My daughter has been sick for over 3 years. My daughter was losing hope - she feared she would not see her 28th birthday, that scared me when I heard that. She now has hope!

We had been to every doctor imaginable, cardio, endo, psych, GI, neuro, gyn, multiple PCP's, spent last June and July at Mayo, then back to Hopkins, rheumatologists, hematologists, the list was endless, she was too complicated. Every day was filled with doctors and tests, my daughter became a shell of the once vivacious, brilliant, bright eyed kindergarten teacher that she was. She no longer drove, slept 24/7, could barely lift her arms, shower herself, had half of her colon removed last April and the rest in August and yet she still had severe GI issues! Finally a doctor suggested NIHA, she was hesitant - not me - we have spent thousands plus a colon - I needed no convincing! Dr. Gant spent 6 hours with us, took 20+ vials of blood, tested for several different Lyme diseases, allergies and sent out a stool DNA - which you think would have been done at MAYO or Hopkins or anywhere else before her first rectoplexy and then complete colon removal!!! THIS WAS THE DOCTOR WHO TREATED THE WHOLE PACKAGE! Well, to our surprise - she had several different kinds of Lyme!, parasites that had paralyzed her small intestine! and heavy metals in her urine which is the reason she was not able to shower, bathe, wash her hair, - her own water was poisoning her! She had food allergies similar to celiac yet she does not have celiac - she basically lives on a gluten free diet, takes enzymes to digest meats and vegetables since she no longer has a colon.

She takes supplements for the lyme - her lyme levels are low now and under control - she has chronic lyme disease and will always have to treat it! She has low IG levels and must take gamma globulin infusions, which she is in a trial for thanks to Dr. Gant and no thanks to United Health Care who has turned her down, twice but which the Doctors office(NIHA) continues to fight!

She has parasites from her world travels during her college years to Costa Rica (2X), Turkey, Morrocco, England, France, Italy, South America; which I told every doctor about and was ignored. She was diagnosed a couple of years ago with H Pylori and given one dose of antibiotics and never tested again to make sure it was gone. Parasites multiply, hide and are difficult to get rid of, they thrive in your intestines. She has now been on several repeat doses of strong antibiotics after completing a regiment of supplements to get rid of them and when you can witness them leaving your body - you know you have found the right doctor!!!

He tested for allergies - which we requested before and were ignored - simple things like chicken eggs, all grains, yeasts, some veggies, spices - a diet change has made a huge difference in her life - it was not simple or easy but necessary.

She was diagnosed with POTS, NMH, fibromyalgia, has had 2 PE's endometriosis, low blood pressure, has had syncope every day, multiple times a day for over three years and is now over 3 months w/o a blackout!!!!!!!!

So all you unbelievers - rethink your regiment and do not believe everything your doctor tells you! At one point she was on 17 different medications a day, we were setting alarms to remind her to take them multiple times a day. PCP's are not well versed in Lyme, the CDC is just starting to believe in chronic lyme disease - so many of these diseases mimic the same symptoms - please continue to search other options - do not be afraid to try the holistic approach - you might become a believer! I am seeing my daughter go from a disabled young woman to a woman who is trying to work again! She still has her limits but in a short time she will be able to drive again and will gain her independence, that alone will be a boost to her mental and physical health! If someone's experience is less than stellar, or they were not cured does not make this practice bogus, they may have another issue or they are too cheap to pay the price for their health, or they want medication or are not willing or patient enough to try this approach - I am willing to go to the end of the earth to help my daughter become whole again, to live her life again even if it is not the life she planned.

If one person reading this is helped, I will be happy, if one person is able to gain some insight into alternative medicine, then I will be happy, because I have seen the difference it can make. V. C. Yelp review 6/17

K.Marie Hall

Every aspect of my visit was exceptional! Marie is awesome, knowledgeable and I feel great. Thank you. 2017

Dr. Cannon really listened

Dr. Cannon really listened, and did not make me feel rushed even though I was late and she had another patient waiting. She takes my health concerns seriously. 2017

Dr. McClure, If you are looking for a practice you can trust...

I want to tell you all about our experience with Dr. McClure because I know taking kids to a dentist is a big fear for most parents. Plus it was really hard to find information on the right dentist for us in the DC area so I figured other parents would find this useful.

I absolutely love this practice and now my entire family goes there. Find out what to expect and why you should go there, especially if you have kids. 

K.Marie Hall

The sweetest, kindest woman ever. She is welcoming and helpful, especially when giving me advice on making healthier choices in life. 2017

Dr. Weiner, a pleasure to come to the dentist- now!

Always a pleasure to come to the dentist- now! Friendly atmosphere, surrounded by professionals. From the front door to the exit everything is top notch. This is why we drive 2 hours to get here!  2017
