"My battle with graves disease began in October 2006 by confirmation of a blood test. I had reported symptoms for 8 months but went undiagnosed by the emergency room doctor and my PCP. I was referred to an endocrinologist in Greensburg and he had refused to put me on ANY medication because I mentioned that I would like to have a second child once my condition was under control. He told me my best course of treatment was radioactive iodine (RAI) because my thyroid was severely overactive. Other folks that had RAI said "your mind and body are never the same again." I felt uneasy about the RAI and I didn't want to expose my family or coworkers to the radiation.
I mentioned to Dr. Consales in November 2006 that I was having RAI. FINALLY, I had the support of a doctor that also believed that the thyroid was an important gland and shouldn't just be BURNED OUT when it was not functioning correctly.
Dr. Consales began treating my thyroid in late November 2006. I was tested for various viruses, and any organ or gland weakness that contributed to the graves disease. I then began receiving targeted therapies and manipulations to improve my thyroid function and help my body heal. I also received a tailored supplemental treatment plan which I coupled with organic foods to further support the overall healing process. I began getting blood work every three months to track my progress.
What seamed like a horribly bleak and hopeless situation suddenly took a turn for the better. The chronic fatigue, severe weight loss, constant shakiness, extreme appetite, rapid heart beat, hair loss and lack of energy began to take a turn for the better. In no time I was feeling better and began putting on some weight. Over the next several months I continued my treatment with Dr. Consales. Within 6 months of Dr. Consaless treating me my thyroid was back to functioning totally normal. How ironic since my old endocrinologist told me I could try Dr. Consales' approach but it wouldn't work. I received clearance from both by obgyn and my new endocrinologist to have a second child. My new endocrinologist said my story was an AMAZING case study. He said he never saw a patient with such severe graves disease turn around the condition to a normal state without medication. Even my PCP had to eat his words because he told me once I stop the treatments my thyroid would stop functioning correctly again. Well - IT DIDN'T!
I have Dr. Consales to thank for saving my thyroid and my second pregnancy which is perfectly healthy. Right now, I am seven months pregnant with no complications."
"I have suffered with seasonal allergies and constant year-round congestion for years. After a recommendation from a co-worker and friend, I became a patient of Dr. Consales. Following the Nutrition Response Testing, I was able to discover exactly what foods I should and should not eat, along with what natural supplements would be best for my overall health. The results have truly been amazing! I have been following the program for the past year and a half, however after following the program for just a few months, my allergies were completely gone! The sneezing, itchy eyes, and daily congestion are a thing of the past! After taking allergy shots for years with marginal success, I discontinued my allergy shots. I have changed my diet and take Standard Process natural supplements daily. I like that the program is completely individualized and after the initial start of the program, I am reevaluated approximately every six weeks as my health improves. The results have been truly amazing!
The Nutrition Response program, has truly changed my life and the lives of my family! My husband, daughter and son are currently involved in the Nutrition Response Program. My daughter has suffered with asthma and chronic sinus infections for years. She was taking what seemed like an endless supply of prescription antibiotics, over-the-counter medications and allergy shots. Since beginning the Nutrition Response Program with Dr. Consales, she has not had a single sinus infection in two years! She is not taking ANY medications!! She no longer has allergies, symptoms of asthma, or sinus infections!! She no longer feels the need for the daily inhaler and daily allergy medications that she has taken in the past. In her words, "Dr. Consales and the Nutrition Response Program have changed my life!"
Speaking for the entire Miller family, we feel as though we have found "the fountain of health". Dr. Consales and the Nutrition Response Program has helped us to realize what foods are individually best for our overall health and what natural supplements are necessary for optimal health.
Dr. Consales and Nutrition Response Testing has my very highest recommendation. It truly has changed the lives of the entire Miller family. My only regret is that I did not begin the program for myself and my family years ago!"
Dr. Badstibner is an excellent chiropractor and has helped me in the past. He is patient and kind and truly wants me to heal. Staff is always so kind too. Thanks for everything."
"Top Notch Health Care Providers
I’ve been a patient for years and cannot be better satisfied with my treatments. Dr. Consales has an excellent, knowledgeable staff. I am always amazed at the effectiveness of his methods, and of Dr. Badstibners’ as well. Both top notch health care providers. I would guess that my beliefs in homeopathic care add to the fine work I receive at the clinic."
"I am able to once again lift my grandson and enjoy “play time” with him!
Thank you Dr. Consales for all you have done to relieve my pain, as well and to improve my quality of life through your Nutrition Program. I came to you three months ago with numbness and tingling in my left leg, left shoulder tenderness, and neck pain which made it difficult to turn my head. Within a few short visits those conditions were alleviated, and I was once again able to perform daily living tasks without discomfort. My greatest joy has been being able to once again lift my one year old grandson and enjoy “play” time together.
I wanted to learn more about the Designed Clinical Nutrition Program. For over 15 years I have been battling a serious autoimmune disorder. I am taking a daily regimen of prescription drugs. The side effects that have occurred as a result of taking these drugs have proven to be very grueling on my body.
Two months ago I underwent Nutrition Response Testing. This program has definitely changed my life for the better. I have learned so much about the importance of whole foods and supplements, and how simple changes can enable my body repair itself and become healthier. My most recent blood test results indicated positive changes in my body’s functioning. I am excited to see how my health improves as I continue with the nutrition program. I hope to wean myself off the prescription drugs I have been taking for so long. I have more energy, less pain, and most importantly, I hope that I can live a happier and healthier life.
Thank you again for all the care and compassion you have extended to me."
"I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 6 years ago, in addition to a variety of existing health issues. Walking in the morning was painful. My neck and back were often stiff and sore; I needed my husband to give me a massage just to start my day. (He’s a saint!) I have tried dozens of medications (prescriptions and OTC), patches, exercises, pillows, adjustments, and some worked for short term, some only briefly, and some not at all. Dr. Consales recommended I try the Nutrition Response Testing to identify my underlying issues.
I started taking a number of whole food supplements and tracking everything I ate. Within one week of taking the supplements my digestive system kicked into overdrive. I have never been more regular. Seeing as the things I are made me more conscious of how much junk, sweets, and lack of protein I had in my diet. I am in my 5th week of the Nutrition Response Testing Program and I am amazed at how good I feel, eating correctly, the supplements, and more activity in my daily regimen has reduced my pain and stiffness dramatically. I have not needed my massage in the morning for 2+ weeks. I have more energy and mobility. I am looking forward to seeing the results at the end of my 12 week regimen."
"I’ve been able to stop taking prescription drugs
It is with great pleasure that I share my wonderful experience with Consales Chiropractic Health Center II. In today’s world of hype and empty promises, it is refreshing to find a practice that exceeds expectations.
My chiropractic encounters there over several years have all been healing and positive. But what most amazes me is that I was able to stop taking prescription drugs that were not only, not fixing the problem but was adding to them!
Candida- I had a bad case of oral thrush that defied different prescription drugs. In addition, one of the drugs caused severe allergic reaction. I was worn out and believed nothing could be done about it. During one of my chiropractic visits, I mentioned my frustration to Dr. Consales. I left his office with a three-week diet to follow and supplement. At the end of the three weeks, the Candida was completely gone. It has never returned, and that was four years ago!
GERD- During my parents’ illnesses and deaths, the stress brought on a horrible case of acid reflex. The prescription drug seemed to settle it. However, my chiropractic adjustments were not holding. Dr. Consales asked me the right questions. Once he realized what I was taking he explained the devastating impact it had on my muscles. I left his office with a natural supplement. I stopped taking the prescription drug. In a matter of a few weeks, the symptoms were gone! I have not had a problem with acid reflex in over a year.
Thyroid- Dr. Consales discovered that my thyroid was not working properly. I was then able to get my compounded thyroid medication adjusted. In addition, Dr. Consales gave me a natural supplement as well. He never wants you to take something that your body does not need. Thus, supplements are only used when you need them!
Dr. Consales is blessed with the gift of healing and of life-long learning. He uses his abundant knowledge to enable people to function at the highest level possible. He never judges, he takes you right where you are and helps you to move forward.
Finally, his entire staff is welcoming and ever so competent. It is always a good experience to visit Consales Chiropractic Health Center II."
"Wake Up Call - A Patient Testimonial “My own personal wakeup call”
On Feb. 24, 2014, I came to this health center, referred by my daughter, primarily for basic chiropractic help to treat my lower back, leg muscle and foot pain. Honestly, I could barely walk, the pain was so horrific. After examination, x-rays, and consultation of my structural problems, my treatments began immediately. It was a further determined during those 6 weeks of treatments, that I was also testing with “high levels” of metals in my body, led, mercury, etc. and the need to offer me further medical attention from a nutritional standpoint to help me with my own personal health.
On April 7, 2014, I decided to have the “Nutrition Response Testing” of my own body’s neurological reflexes examined. I am very glad that I chose to do so, on April 14th my test results were thoroughly documented and reviewed, providing me with a complete understanding of my personal designed clinical nutritional program, and ways to improve my nutritional health care. At that very moment, I made a healthy decision to take my own “wake up call” in life, and start the process immediately. During my first 6 weeks of testing and taking prescribed whole food supplements I honestly began to feel the difference in my everyday living, I am currently in the healing phase of the program.
It was at that point, I began the educational process of better understanding what nutrition really is all about. This center provided me with books of history and studies on nutritional foods, articles written by professional nutritionist and many other healthy food pamphlets for a better health plan in this nutritional program.
We all like to believe that we eat right, exercise regularly, and get the proper rest required in our lives, until we find out differently. It is only when our health may begin to breakdown, that it really gets our attention. Studies have shown that less than 1% of the American people actually eat nutritional healthy foods. It just might be one of the reasons why there is a significant increase in diabetes, heart disease, and cancers in our society.
At some point of time, in our lives we all get “Clinically Diagnosed” as to our present health status. It then is out individual choice in life to decide if clinical prescribed drugs are the way to go or it just may be time for a “wake up call” with an alternative choice to become a better educated patient, from a structural nutritional and neurological standpoint. Taking the prescribed whole food supplements has been a healthy choice for me. These types of health decisions are being made each and every day and are vitally important to all of us in our life.
It is my personal opinion that the success of this program is the “believe in it”, don’t give it up, and genuinely stay with quality nutritional foods throughout."
"There have been a lot of improvements
What was it like before you came to us?
Back and neck problems, poor bowel movement, and tired.
How is it now?
Back problems are much better, I was looking for a “gentle” chiropractor and I found that in Dr. Consales. With the Nutrition Response Testing and the supplement Fen-cho my bowel movement has improved. Some days I’m still tired but there have been a lot of improvements."
"I have resumed normal activity, pain free!
Prior to coming to see Dr. Consales, I was suffering from intense neck pain. As a result, there was also stiffness, limited mobility and shoulder pain. I also had pain radiating into my arms. I was unable to complete some tasks while experiencing much difficulty with the things I was able to do. Because I was unable to lie down, I could only sleep in short sessions while propped up with a pillow.
After a couple visits, Dr. Consales identified a source of toxicity in my body that was interfering with the treatment and healing process. With and integrated approach of whole food supplements, Nutritional Response Testing, chiropractic adjustments, and therapy, Dr. Consales was able to address and correct the issue. Within a few weeks, I was able to resume normal activity with no pain and minimal discomfort. I am able to sleep comfortably and have reduced my need for chiropractic."
"My Stomach is gone and I’m back into my dresses!
Before I started the Nutritional Response Testing Program, I weighed 219 pounds. My cholesterol was 277, my triglycerides were 435, my sugar count was 128, and I have very little energy. The biggest thing that bothered me was that my stomach had expanded to the point where none of my dresses and skirts would fit me.
As of today (the end of my 4 month program) I now weigh 203, my cholesterol is 186, my triglycerides is down to 148, my sugar count is 95, and my energy level is back to where it should be, I’m happy to say that my stomach is gone and I’m back into my dresses."
"My skin and endocrine problems finally cleared
For many years I struggled with acne. Through middle school, high school, and college I saw various doctors, none of whom could seem to “cure” me. At times I grew depressed for no reason, would have itching skin or uncontrollable chills over my body that made the middle of July feel like the inside of a ice cooler. Simply put, I was miserable. I wanted to feel “good” again, because my depression got worse and threatened to drive me down a path I might’ve been unable to recover from, and I haven’t even hit my twenty-third birthday! I was scared I had no idea what was wrong with me.
My body now feels amazing. Dieting from sugar and all those harmful toxins has revitalized me life. The acne on my face is all but nonexistent now, and I haven’t fallen into a single depressive episode since being on the Nutritional Response Testing Program with Dr. Consales. I’ve never felt more in control of my health and well-being, and I will forever be grateful to Consales Chiropractic Health Center for helping me attain a higher quality of health, the best part? No more drugs! No more pain, discomfort or aches. The Nutritional Response Testing has changed my life. It opened my eyes and gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Consales."
"Great Results With Decompression Therapy
Dear Dr. Anthony Consales,
I am writing to thank you for taking great care of me. When I first came to see you I was having intense pain in my neck, my left shoulder and my left arm was numb all the way down to my finger tips. I had seen a neurologist and received an MRI at the hospital that revealed a bulging disc in my neck that was pushing on a nerve. The neurologist tried therapy on me for several months and finally told me that I no choice but to have surgery. I had heard about decompression therapy and I came to see you for a consultation and you explained everything to me and helped me understand all my options. I think on my second visit the pain was less intense and it got better with every one of your gentle treatments. I just want to tell you that it has been two years now and I am doing great thanks to you and I thank God for you every day of my life. I am 100% pain free."
"I was experiencing migraine headaches approximately 1-2 times per week. They each had a duration of 3-4 days. After treatment at Consales Chiropractic Health Center I am now experiencing migraines 1-2 times a month and the duration has been cut in half."
"The K-Laser is truly an amazing effective treatment
I was experiencing severe pain in my left leg; behind the knee radiating to the upper leg and the calf area of the leg. My leg at times felt like it wouldn’t support me. Also at the same time I was experiencing excruciating pain in my left foot due to spurs in my heel and in the bone above my large toe. Also the pad of my foot was extremely painful due to a nerve ending condition.
Through the utilization if the K-Laser therapy and manipulative techniques, Dr. Consales alleviated the pain in my left foot and leg. The K-Laser treatment also alleviated the tendinitis in my elbow area.
Dr. Consales I truly appreciate your caring and expert knowledge. I’m truly thankful that I’m able to resume my daily walks and exercise routines. The K-Laser is truly an amazing effective treatment."
"Before I started treatment at CCHC my feet hurt like tooth aches, my lower back was locked up and I was very tired all the time.After treatment my foot pain is gone, I can touch my toes and my energy is wonderful!"
"It feels great to feel good and function like a human being again.
My name is Ruth. I have been a patient of Dr. Consales for over 16 years. I fell and herniated a disc in my lower back. Over the years I had some muscle problems. I always have a sore area I both sides of my spine in my lower back. On my visit 12/14/12 Dr. Consales told me about a seminar he and his son attended about scars on the body and how it affects the energy flow inside the body. he asked me if I had any scars on my body. Well guess what, I do. It goes from the bottom of my belly all the way down until it can’t go any further down.
My scar always felt like a thick card. After the painless scar treatment of oil and cold laser, most of it has disappeared and the lower point feels like a thinner piece of card and the constant ache and soreness in my lower back has gone away.
I haven’t felt this good in a long time. It feels foot to feel goof and function like a human being again."
