Sharing their experience.
Thanks again! I’m feeling great and I lost 5 lbs. in the last week, How wild is that! See you in August.
I just want to thank you for your kind and excellent care. Since starting your program of dietary changes and supplements I have had much more energy and have lost an entire size with no effort! For three years I have searched for someone to help me deal effectively with the effects of menopause and until my cousin recommended you I had no luck. Further, as you know, when I came to see you I had a severe lung infection that had lingered for two weeks, but after one Acupuncture treatment and one week of the supplements I was completely back to normal and when I saw you last I was pleased to learn that I did not have to stay on the lung support supplements. Your time and attention to detail and caring manner are sadly uncommon in health care professionals. My husband, Bob and I feel blessed to have found you. Please feel free to use this as a most enthusiastic letter of recommendation!

I first visited Dr. Sam this winter to discuss some problems I was having with poor circulation and chronic coldness. In my first appointment Sam was very enthusiastic about treating not only my circulation problems, but also asked me about other health issues I had been struggling with as well. He was incredibly open to hearing what I had to say about my own health, and made me feel that he was taking very careful consideration of everything that I had to say. Rather than isolate the problem, he helped me assess all the factors of my health and lifestyle which could be affecting my overall wellness. He prescribed a Chinese Herbal tea for me that increased my circulation dramatically and made me feel so much warmer all the time. In addition, Dr. Sam’s recommendations decreased my migraines, and need for medication, from once per week to once per month. As a medical professional, Sam was caring and thoughful, and my visit to him was very refreshing. It was great to have my medical concerns treated with such an open-minded and holistic approach.

I am writing to tell you how grateful I am for your help. When we met in June 2008 I was completely depleted. I had been through a year and a half of crazy work stress, endless tests, procedures and inseminations without success, a thirty pound weight gain and a very painful bout with Achilles tendonitis. Needless to say—just talking without crying was a feat. Your prescription began with plenty of rest and creating some boundaries—but continued with suggestions for almost every area of concern. I wanted to tell you about some of the triumphs that have resulted from them. First of all—I had cross-fiber friction therapy on my Achilles tendons as you advised. I have to say that I was sure that the pain I was suffering was never going to subside. Today, I have NO pain 99% of the time. Occasionally I have a twinge here and there, but I would confidently say that I was cured!! I am so thrilled with the results I tell everyone who will listen!! Second—Exercise. I know everyone says that regular exercise will help with stress, weight, sleep and a myriad of other problems, but it is not always easy to take that first step. Your gentle guidance got me to the gym—it started slowly, but I gained confidence and started moving more and more. Since October 1, I have lost 12+ pounds and I feel so strong and clear-minded. My sleep has definitely improved and so has my energy level, mood and general disposition. Third—The book you recommended “Non-Violent Communication” has been a definite eye-opener. Although it is a struggle some days for my inner voice to be “non-violent”—the concept has really touched me and allows me to be more conscious of how I think and speak to myself and others. Mostly—your knowledge, kindness, patience and courage in the face of a storm (really—it was a crazy thunder-storm and then all the lights went out—we finished our session in the dark!)were just what I needed. I am so appreciative of the time you spent with me as well as your diligent follow-ups. The suggestions you made—both the ones I followed and the ones that fell by the wayside were insightful and totally on the mark. Thank you so much for your help!!

I came to Dr. Sam for a serious and sensitive health condition. He understood the fear and stress I was experiencing and helped me feel hopeful. He knew exactly what to do to address the condition naturally, effectively, and without side effects. I doubt I could have found the protocol anywhere else.

Greetings! I saw you three weeks ago and wanted to say thanks. It was great to meet you. The heart palpitations went away quickly I’m glad to say, as I regained perspective. I’m holding all your recommendations in my mind, following some more than others, but grateful for them all. … Thanks for your presence and advice! Take care.
Dr. Sam is a highly professional and compassionate doctor whose services were there for me when I needed them the most. I suddenly became ill and that same day, Dr. Sam was able to fit me in for an appointment. From the moment I sat down to the time I left, he gave me his full attention and I never felt rushed along. During the entire appointment I felt like what I had to say and how I was feeling was the most important thing. During the appointment he not only addressed my physical symptoms, but we also spoke about what was going on for me emotionally and mentally. He gave me useful tools to help me deal with my emotional pain. By the end of the appointment my physical body felt better and my spirits were lifted. Dr. Sam truly does treat the ‘whole’ person and he fully recognizes the body/mind connection. I am 100% grateful that I had the opportunity to see Dr. Sam that day. His attentiveness, kindness, and professional knowledge made a lasting positive impression on me and I will be recommending his services to my friends and whomever I may meet who is in need

I hope all is well! I just wanted to follow-up to our treatment this past summer. I got my latest PAP smear results back today and it is normal. Very good news! Thank you again for your help with everything!
I just wanted to take a minute to express my sincere gratitude for your practical advise, knowledgeable wisdom, and inspiring me to make positive and proactive health choices. Let me start off by telling you how much I loved your email health series! I really enjoyed reading your helpful and interesting health tips and have began implementing them into my daily life. Now, the most heartfelt thank-you I can offer to you for changing my life. My acne is almost completely gone and I cannot remember the last time my skin looked so clear and healthy! (Literally it was probably before puberty that my skin last looked this good!) Although I am grateful for acne to be my main medical concern at this point in my life and though others would rate acne as the most minuscule of medical issues, it weighed on me heavily. As you may imagine it is difficult to be looked at as a knowledgeable professional during my daily work life when I look young and pubescent due to my acne. The clearing up of my skin has given me much more confidence and I have so enjoyed hearing people compliment my skin and notice the huge change in my complexion. The one side-effect that should be listed on the bottle; "Unable to control looking at yourself when in the presence of a mirror" especially considering that looking in the mirror used to be the determination for what kind of a day it was going to be. Now everyday is a good day! Who would have known that all this could be solved with minor lifestyle changes and natural compounds!? I am a believer! It is absolutely mind blowing when dangerous substances are pushed at you with side-effects 10X worse than the original medical condition and turn out not to work, but an all natural substance works perfectly with no side-effects what so ever! With that, knowing that this method took me about 10 years to find is a pity and that is why I am trying to spread the word about your practice whenever I can. People need to be more aware of what healthy, natural cures can be available to them. Seeking out a holistic doctor like yourself should not be considered "thinking outside the box" like it is today, it should be considered the first step in treatment. My sincere gratitude for your wisdom and kindness. Wishing you and your family the happiest of holidays and hopes of a bright and beautiful new year!

At first I didn’t notice much.. But I did feel very relaxed during the session. After getting up I didn’t feel much. But after a while I noticed a calmness that set in. I’m not usually calm… its’ an unusual sensation for me. I am going to try to get to bed earlier because i feel like i will be able to sleep well tonight. Yes, a relaxed, grounded, calmness. I don’t know what you did, but I think you knew. Thank you. I will be back.
Dr. Sam spends a great deal of time with me. He does careful research to ascertain the nature of my concerns and address my needs. I am impressed with his knowledge and his positive attitude. Because of his therapies, I feel better and have reduced my need for medications.

In my experience, Dr. Sam hears, and has a clear way of understanding what is needed in an overall way. He takes in account all physical, mental and emotional aspects in a wholistic and organized way that seems unique to anything that I have experienced. He focuses on the issue that is most causing the dis-ease while giving support in the many areas that he is knowledgable in. Thank you.
I want to start off my testimonial by thanking Dr. Sam for his amazing talent, plethora of knowledge and his ability to assist patients in their healing process. I also want to thank my mother for introducing me to Dr. Sam, if it had not been for her I would still be living with HPV. I was always an individual who relied on medication for any ailment or sickness that my body endured. When I was diagnosed with HPV I became very upset, frightened and anxious as there was no known cure for the disease. In some cases the body cures HPV on its own, however, in other cases it can develop into cervical cancer. After several years of living with the disease my mother mentioned a holistic doctor who said that he can cure HPV. I was very skeptical about holistic doctors and their practice because the products that they use are not FDA regulated, however, that was me being extremely ignorant. When I met Dr. Sam he was very down to earth, genuine, unbiased and extremely knowledgable. I also felt very comfortable and relaxed when speaking with him. After discussing my condition with Dr. Sam he suggested several products to use and how to use them appropriately. After one month I went to the gynocologist and got a PAP test. My results came back negative for HPV. I can't thank Dr. Sam enough for his true ability to understand the human body. I would recommend Dr. Sam to any person looking for an alternative approach to healing bodily dysfunctions.

My heart is changing physically & metaphorically: from oftentimes experiencing a completely constricted feeling I was able to release to complete openness enveloping the love of the wonderful support network that I’m blessed to have, & then feeling my physical heart beating to a normal healthy rhythm for a change. There’s much more physically & psychologically I experienced, but right now I really need to go appreciate all the good things around me & ignore the 97 emails in front of me. THANK YOU! This is the most like my real self I’ve felt in at least a couple or more years
Thank you again for weeding through my very complex medical history.
It's sad when people face chronic sickness, they almost get used to it. In a way, not living vibrantly was just the norm for me during relapses.
Sometimes lasting for 6 months or more. When my body betrayed me, it was almost three years of fading eyesight, disease and brainfog before I was treated for Lyme back in early 2000's. I was not able to plan or undertake in real living. Lyme treatment helped, however off ABX, i would totally relapse, and I would not 100% heal.
During my 20's and 30's, a time when I should have been traveling, dating, seeing the world and having kids, I lost all of those years to doctors visits and confusion.
Well, 3 days ago, my wife and I packed up for a road-trip to Vancouver, on to Whistler and we had a great time!
While in Whistler, I reached a new high of 96% of normal health. Where my previous high of 94% was topped. I am in a way different and better place than I was before. Thanks to you!
We took cable cars to the top of the peak and just hung out and took it all in the winter wonderland (next time we will take snowboarding lessons). 😀
Even though I am not 100% yet, this is miles from where I was before.
And people commented on my skin complexion was way healthier. Like I said, my eyes and cheeks were sucked in before, as well as people would sometimes say my complexion was on the slight yellow side in years past. I can even show you before and after photos.
Now my skin is normal and healthy, my eyes no longer have dark circles, stomach was flatter.
My legs felt that of an 18 year olds, no pain, no joint pain, no shooting nerve pain or buzzing/twitching, no heavy feelings.
Sleep is amazing now! Full 8 hours! Before I would be lucky to sleep for an hour!
Stomach is now flat, stools are normal. Formed, harder and dark, for a continual basis. Don't like talking about poo, haha - I did not mention - my stools would be 'fatty, greasy and light colored' over the past years when I was really ill.
I will say, I still have a little wax and wane, so you are right, a slight Lyme element, however my range is 90-96% now.
Well, hopefully now, this genetic curse and be rectified and we can focus on really learning from the past, however not living in the past. We can embrace the future!
Thank you so much for your understanding and compassion.
I have had so many 'false hopes' in the past, and I don't want to jinx this, but it looks like it may be the root of the cause I have been searching for, and I can finally depend on my body to stop betraying me, to allow me to be a real man, a warrior and a winner - and reverse my families curse as well.
I will be in to refill some supplements this week, and get additional ones for my mom.
Thank you and happy holidays.
But yes, seeing huge gains here, and hopefully for my mom as well. But like I said, this looks like the right path, its still a little early to tell with my mom quite yet. She is in her 70's, so she might take longer for her to heal.
You don't know how excited I am to get my (and hopefully) my mom's life back. Even though I am trying to hold it in, haha
