Chronic Conditions


Peripheral Neuropathy

For several years I had discussed the increasing nerve pain in my feet with my endocrinologist. He acknowledged my pain and would tell me that diabetes is a progressive disease and I should know that and there was very little that could be done. It seemed hopeless.

My ability to walk had decreased to where I was beginning to drag my right leg as opposed to taking a step and bending that foot because of the razor sharp, burning pain. I had pain in both of my feet and was beginning to feel twinge in my arms and upper legs. I was also experiencing loss of balance.

By chance one day I saw a Facebook post from Dr. Taylor’s Chiropractic office claiming to treat neuropathy. I was skeptical. But I had nothing to loose and I made my first appointment. Even after the first treatment I could feel an improvement. I was convinced that Dr. Taylor had my answer.

Through a series of in office treatments, dietary changes and exercise, I no longer fear I will loose a foot or leg to diabetes. My recovery from nerve damage is remarkable. Movement through my life has been restored.

I highly recommend Dr. Taylor and his practice.

Low Thyroid

I was diagnosed Hypothyroid at the age of 13 years old. And I have recently celebrated my 50th birthday. I’ve been hypothyroid for 37 years and had never truly grasped the complicated nature of this disease.
I thought if I took my daily medication I was fine. I didn’t understand the many effects it can have on a person’s body and overall health until I began to work with Dr. Taylor.

Like most thyroid patients, I see a physician annually who checks my TSH and doses my medication solely based on the results of that one blood test. As I’ve found though out the years this approach does not treat the symptoms.

For the past several years I’ve suffered from chronic fatigue, mild depression, hair loss, brain fog, and rapid weight gain. I gained 20 pounds in one year! My TSH results were in a constant yo-yo pattern – too high, too low – so my doctor was constantly adjusting my medication. During this time, no matter what dose I was on, I wasn’t finding any relief from my symptoms. I was put on an anti-depressant and my chronic fatigue continued to get worse.

I decided to do some research and found my story to be very common among Thyroid patients. Doctors who treat hypothyroid based on the TSH blood test and not on each patient’s symptoms, or the cause of those symptoms. It was a “one size fits all” treatment plan. A treatment plan that doesn’t work.

During my research, I ran across Dr. Taylor’s website. I related to so many things Dr. Taylor addresses on his website and in his videos. During my initial consultation he explained his approach to treating hypothyroidism through functional medicine and finding the root cause. Everything he said made sense to me.

As I began to work with Dr. Taylor he ordered several tests, including 9 different thyroid tests and food sensitivity testing. With these results, he designed a treatment plan specifically for me. He suggested dietary changes to reduce the inflammation in my body based on my triggers. Throughout my treatment he layered different protocols to heal my body based on my specific root causes.
I was quickly seeing relief from my symptoms and my energy levels were increasing. I felt like a normal person again!

Working with Dr. Taylor and finding the root cause of my symptoms has been the best thing I could have done to take care of myself. Thanks to Dr. Taylor I have more energy and focus then I have had in years.

I highly recommend Dr. Taylor and his approach to treating hypothyroidism and finding the root cause of your symptoms.

Low Thyroid

Dr. Taylor

Through the majority of my adult life I felt so terrible and helpless, and had no idea why. Little did I realize how significant my thyroid and other health problems would affect my overall well-being.

When we found you at about this time last year my general mindset was a lot different than it is today. I had pretty much accepted feeling terrible, and I thought that was just how everybody lived. Either that or I should just suck-it-up. At the time, I was moving in a rush trying to avoid my health in exchange for something that could give me direction. I was prepared to accept a menial starting position outside of Detroit and see how long I could go until I burned out.

As a blessing in disguise, being forced to go through this health improvement and thyroid cancer has really been an eye opener for me. It has given me an opportunity to slow down and figure out more about myself. As a result, next Monday I will be starting a new job doing something that is interesting to me, and not feel like I had to settle.

Looking forward, I am optimistic about what the future holds, and I am so thankful that just by chance my parents were able to find your YouTube videos, and as a result, you were able to help me.
Thank you very much once again.

Warm regards,

Mike M.

Chiropractic Care

I was having a lot of neck pain and often found myself feeling very uncomfortable throughout the day and even trying to fall asleep. I was also having back pain and stiffness because of the rigorous play in my basketball games and practices. I started going to to Dr. Taylor and I was very impressed after my first visit. He spent so much time with me, looking at my x-rays and figuring out my problem areas in my neck and back. Every time I have gone for my appointments he spends so much time taking care of my needs. I can tell he really cares and is passionate about what he does. I do not have any more neck pain and back pain because of all of the time Dr. Taylor has put into helping me feel better. Now I can perform without pain and focus in the classroom. Thanks Dr. Taylor!

Dr. Taylor:


Just a short note to thank you for the time and treatments you provided to me. I came to your office as a skeptic on the suggestion of a friend.

Since February my right knee has been bothered me every day. There were days that it was nearly impossible to do an 8 hour day. Doing steps--forget about it.

On my first visit you took the time to ask every possible question as to my expectations, my daily activities and levels of discomforted. Treatment began with the first appointment. When this first treatment was complete I did notice an improvement.

On my second treatment I knew I had made the correct decision. I was even able to do the treadmill for the first time in months. We then had a couple of courtesy appointments that we decided to do a weekly treatment for 3 weeks.

Today, I have little or no pain in my knee. My lover back improved.

I am extremely happy to have you as my provider. Your professional, yet personal, approach allows me to be a person and not a number for my care. It has been a two way street for my care. Thank you for everything.

I sought out care because I have degeneration in my back and struggle with pain continually. Dr. Taylor provides amazing relief as he expertly adjusts me to give me relief. He's also helped me with some digestive issues I have. I no longer have the issues after just one adjustment! If I hadn't lived it, I wouldn't believe it, but I did and I firmly believe in Dr. Taylor's ability. He's one of the best chiropractors I have had in my life, and I strongly recommend him to all I can. He's GOOD! Thanks Dr. Taylor!!

I first went to see Dr. Taylor at the suggestion of my daughter. I've worked at a desk for 30 years, sitting basically in the same position. My lower back has always ached right when I stand up and especially first thing in the morning when getting out of bed. One visit and I couldn't believe the difference. He's also helped with my shoulders and neck. I was one of those people who never believed in chiropractors helped, but now I'm a true believer and go on a regular basis!!

I felt much better after my appointment. My pain was greatly reduced. They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. Their staff is very friendly and professional. I was very satisfied with my visit. They were helpful and I left feeling encouraged. The office was easy enough to find.

I am currently being treated for a wide range of medical issues. As a result, I am committed to living the healthiest lifestyle possible to improve my health outcomes. After my spouse fell on the stirs carrying a heavy box, he sought chiropractic care. Following the first session with Dr. Taylor, the improvement was remarkable and the positive results continued following subsequent treatments.



Thus, I was so impressed that I decided to find out what Dr. Taylor could do for me. I’ve had difficulties with my neck, low back, right wrist, and posture. Dr. Taylor began by listening to what I told him about my life circumstances and taking x-rays. I have certainly been impressed by how carefully he has listened to what I have told him and how he has taken interest in and followed up on my specific concerns. I have reaped the benefits of the care provided by Dr. Taylor!

I had foot pain for over a year. Dr. Taylor evaluated it and adjusted it and I was pain free shortly after. I am running again! He does a great job.



Kim

Not only did I have no more pain after my adjustment, but I felt great afterward. I definitely saw a huge difference. They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I've ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting them. All my questions were answered, and I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future.



Mary

My back had been feeling tight and sore for a couple of weeks. I was starting to wake up in the middle of the night and it was affecting my ability to get comfortable/sleep. I thought that it would work itself out but I was wrong. I called up Dr. Taylor and he went out of his way to see me. I…and my back, are thankful he did! He was able to isolate the problem and educate me on not only what the issue was, but what he was doing to correct it. I also liked the fact that he sent me on my way when he felt my back was good to go(only 2 visits). I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Taylor to anyone struggling with back or neck pain.
Thanks again!
