What Patients Are Saying
Autoimmune Disease (Connective Tissue Disease)
I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease after I couldn't move my elbow for several days due to pain. It was a shock to have this sort of diagnosis at the age of thirty and because it was in my family, I knew I had to take measures to prevent it from getting worse. Dr. Jen got me on a meal plan to reduce the overall inflammation in my body. She also had me on an easy vitamin regimen to help my situation. After the first 2 weeks my energy levels skyrocketed. The pain was reduced and I actually felt healthy. Her meal plans and visits have shown me that with the right help, I really can make a difference in my own health.

Abdominal Pain and Low Energy
After battling with severe abdominal pain on and off for several months which caused me to have to stop working, I was recommended to see Dr. Jen Dyck. My energy was at an all time low and my stress was beginning to increase from being out of work and with a family to take care of. After my first visit with Dr. Jen, her treatment and dietary recommendations stopped my abdominal pain within one week. My energy came back up and I felt better than I had in a long time. With regular follow ups every few months, my health is re-assessed and I have continued to improve to the point where I can now play with my two children and am back to work full-time!

Osteoarthritis and Facial Paralysis
I am an eighty-year-old woman who had been suffering from knee pain due to osteoarthritis for over a year. I tried different pain medications and when these no longer worked I turned to Dr. Jennifer Dyck. I had 6 acupuncture sessions with her and even after the first treatment, I woke up with less pain and my ability to walk increased dramatically. Her treatments did not only focus on my knee, however. Following a recent surgery, I had some paralysis on the left side of my face around my eye and jaw. After the first session with Dr. Jennifer, my eyelid was no longer droopy and I could feel my earlobe. The medical doctors had told me not to expect full recovery, but thanks to the Doctor's acupuncture, I did! I now see her for maintenance treatments and to check in with my overall health. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to have less pain in their life.

Irregular Periods and Mood Swings
After over a year of irregular periods, mood swings, and skin problems, I decided to have my saliva hormones tested to see where their levels were at. After my first visit with Dr. Jen, I did the test and when the results came back, she had a plan for me to help balance my hormones and cortisol. With the help of supplements and good food, my symptoms have diminished and my periods have become much more regular.
