From our Clients
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.
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

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.

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.
I visited Dr. Sam to help me deal with the horrible allergies, yeast infections and skin rashes I had been living with for all of my life. I had seen countless specialists including dermatologists, gynecologists and allergists who had prescribed me all types of steroids and allergy medications. Nothing seemed to work! I had been told that because my family has allergies so do I and I should just learn to live with them. Dr. Sam is the first person who ever looked at me as a whole being.
Hi Sam, I had a wonderful experience when I left you after acupuncture. I was walking my dog on the rail trail and as I looked around everything had a brightness and crispness about it. I think that chi was indeed released and flowing better. I had more clarity of mind too. It was a great feeling of euphoria and peace. My knees are a little sore today, but that’s normal. Thanks!
Dr. Sam Schikowitz is a very bright and caring practitioner. He listens with a holistic mind, assesses symptoms in creative ways and comes up with thorough treatment plans. He has a whole constellation of knowledge and techniques which gives the patient the distinct advantage of being able to use one practitioner and receive many treatment modalities. Dr. Sam is also a visionary. He is the kind of person who brings Holistic Medicine to the mainstream. We are lucky to know him. Have a wonderful summer!

When I speak of you it is with the highest regard–I always tell people you are “absolutely brilliant and the nicest person” and that you research each person’s case thoroughly before you prescribe a treatment, and that you were the only person to ever really figure out my chronic problems and how to treat them. Thanks for your caring work!

When I was diagnosed with a cervical dysplasia (ASCUS 2) I was devastated. The procedures I had to endure were painful and frightening, and I had no hope for a permanent cure. I went to see Dr. Sam and he understood the stress I was feeling and put me at ease. He knew exactly the treatment plan that would cure the condition. After 6 weeks of his protocol my follow-up PAP was 100% clear. It was a focused, natural, and safe plan and I suffered no side effects. I send anyone who has serious health conditions to see Dr. Sam.

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.
I walked in and right away you heard what was going on, and gave me a plan that addressed the issue right away. You acknowledged things that I hadn’t realized were impacting my health that nobody, not friends or health care professionals, had recognized. You believed in me and you helped me and I had been foundering for years.
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!

I just wanted to let you know on a personal note that I took all of the helpful tools you gave me regarding how I can use NVC to talk to my father and we ended up having an amazing conversation yesterday. A lot of things were cleared up, I let my Dad know of a need I had that he was not even aware of and by the end we were both crying tears of happiness. It was very emotional and healing so thank you for taking the time to ask the right questions and make the inquiries you did. I am very grateful.

I was dealing with IBS that was related to both food intolerances and social anxiety. After searching online I found that acupuncture had helped a lot of people in dealing with and curing IBS. After speaking with Dr. Sam about my issues I had great hope for returning to a normal life. Dr. Sam’s caring nature for all things that were happening my life and his great knowledge of the human body were able to help me to overcome the obstacles that I was facing both with IBS and some of my work and personal life issues.
