Mrs. Kim Andrews
Your Springfield Chiropractor
"My name is Lumi Szilagyi and in 2011 I became one of the unlucky people that have been diagnosed with cancer. I had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Two years later I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I was in the hospital for a long time, received a lot of chemotherapy and a few months later had a bone marrow transplant. Everything seemed to be alright for a while. Unfortunately a year and a half later the leukemia relapsed. For five months I had a lot of chemotherapy and then one day my oncologist told me that he had done everything he could and my body simply wasn't responding. He told me to go home, get my affairs in order and enjoy the rest of my life spending time with my family and friends. He told me he would keep me as comfortable as possible. When I came home I thought, "I'm not going to give up without a fight!" I then started to treat myself with alternative methods. I started with eating a very healthy diet, taking natural supplements and using essential oils. My chiropractor, Dr. H.R. Thompson told me that the hyperbaric oxygen chamber and Vitamin C IV's would be beneficial to me. So besides getting regular chiropractic adjustments, I started the hyperbaric oxygen therapy and getting nutritional IV's. Two months later my oncologist told me he couldn't find any leukemia cells in my blood. I thank God for wonderful chiropractors and good friends. Chiropractic adjustments, IV therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and natural supplements can and do keep your body healthy and able to fight against disease. I am living proof."
"Yes, I was one of those who doubted the benefits of a chiropractor. I put them in the same category with massage therapists. That was until I developed Bells Palsy. My primary medical doctor just hoped it would go away. When it didn’t, he referred me for speech therapy exercises. When that didn’t work, we tried electrical stimulation with a physical therapist. Then a friend told me about a Chinese woman who did acupressure. She helped my face some, but told me what I really needed was acupuncture. Then I tried Dr. Thompson. Since I’ve been going to him, I’ve almost got my smile and my eye back. Through a series of acupuncture sessions, combined with chiropractic adjustments, my face is slowly returning to normal. It’s been a year, and oh how I wish I had known what Dr. Thompson could do and just started with him from the start."
I am nine years old, and I have a condition known as pectus excavatum, also known as funnel chest. This is a deep depression of my sternum and my ribs flare out to make it even more noticeable. This causes stress on my lungs and heart.
My brother, Jon, who is sixteen, had this condition and is now recovering from pectus repair surgery. In 8th grade he began to feel a strain on his stamina and endurance when he competed in basketball. The surgery will allow him to function normally but it is a very painful and costly surgery. He still has to do 300 crunches a day to get his muscles to pull his ribs back in.
I’m thankful Jon could have the surgery, but I’m praying God will heal me with the help of Dr. Thompson. I have had twelve adjustments, and now I’m going once a week. My back was so tight and my shoulders were already rounding. Dr. Thompson is working on me to get every part of me in line so I can grow straight and prevent the depression from getting deeper. He also gave me exercises to do twice a day. I can even do 100 crunches at one time!
Already my mom can see a difference in my posture. Dr. Thompson says the body can heal itself. That’s what I’m praying for because I don’t want to have surgery. I’m thankful for Dr. Thompson!!
Last Sepember I developed intense knee pain and within a week couldn't walk. I have been a patient of Dr. Thompson's for 30 years and so I knew he could help me. Dr. Thompson started acupuncture treatment on my knees. I started coming to Dr. Thompson three times per week at first, then twice, and now I go once a week for acupuncture in addition to my monthly maintenance adjustments and therapies.
I noticed an improvement in my knees after the first treatment of acupuncture. Within two weeks I noticed an even more drastic difference. I have had no more pain during the day and can walk fine. I highly recommend Dr. Thompson and acupuncture treatment. I will continue chiropractic care as long as I live.
