When I first scheduled an appointment with Dr. Schwartzman, I had been diagnosed with a Hiatal Hernia and told that there was nothing that I could do except to manage the painful and frustrating symptoms or undergo major surgery. During my first appointment, Dr. Schwartzman was able to perform an adjustment to correct the Hiatal Hernia and over the following two weeks my symptoms began to disappear and they have never returned. In addition, Dr. Schwartzman has been treating me for a few other issues including a hormonal imbalance and the process has led me to feel better than I can remember feeling in years. I have experienced a significant increase in energy and well-being and I feel that my health is being restored. I’ve had a wonderful experience with Whole Family Wellness and I would highly recommend them! –H.W.

Kendra is an extraordinary healer! I began seeing her about six years ago after being diagnosed with PCOS. I was simply looking for help with infertility issues, but through her, gained a priceless knowledge of my body and a greater understanding of myself. Kendra is a kind, patient and extremely intelligent practitioner as well as a teacher. Today I have two amazing children: a 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son. I can’t thank Kendra enough for making these wonderful children a reality for me! -Jill

I have been trying to get pregnant for two and a half years. The diagnosis I was given by my reproductive endocrinologist was hypothalamic amenorrhea; my hormone production was out of sync and he did not believe it was a good chance of getting it where it needed to be without medication or treatment. I tried clomid five or six times with varying issues, which did not result in a pregnancy. I was having no cycle at this point and clomid created a cycle but left me feeling poorly. I decided to try to get my stress level down and my body back in balance by trying acupuncture. I met Kendra and we came up with a plan. She did say it may take a while, but I was willing to try anything to have a normal, drug-free cycle. After about six months I started having periods; not regular but they were happening and I was ovulating. I also found out I may have a bit of endometriosis which I had a hystosalpingogram to check it out. Approximately one year after starting the regular acupuncture and Chinese herbs I found out I was pregnant. I do believe I could not have done it without Chinese medicine and a guide like Kendra. So far pregnancy is wonderful and I am looking forward to a beautiful baby! Thank you and good luck to all of you who are trying. Be persistent and be patient. -A.M.

I was what Western medicine doctors label as a complicated patient, with chronic pain, asthma, allergies, and digestive problems with many symptoms. I have been very open with my acupuncture treatments and a healthy way of eating. I also was treated for grief with acupuncture with meditation. My pain level is much better by treating the root of my problems instead of the symptoms. I have less symptoms now because Kendra helps me with guidance and as a healer in acupuncture. I am getting better! –P.P.

For the last 14 years, I have suffered incessantly from IBS which has been an almost crippling experience in both my home and work life. For the first time in my life I feel like a normal person again. You first gave me hope which I believed in, you then gave me inspiration which I very much needed, and finally, you have given me back to my family. Thank you Dr. Schwartzman. –S.L.

I had just totally hit the wall when I finally made an appointment with Dr. Schwartzman. I had recently quit my job because the stress of trying to conceive while traveling (and turning 40) was just too much for me to handle. Luckily, my husband was very supportive of me taking a little time off to focus on my health. Through Dr. Schwartzman, I discovered that my hormones were off (hypothyroid and low progesterone) and that I was anemic. All of those years of work, late nights and abuse to my body had definitely caught up to me. He suggested acupuncture for hormone balance and relaxation, in addition to a regimen of enhanced nutrition, exercise, vitamins and supplements. It was not very long before I started to feel better (and wanted to over-do again) but he was able to get me back on track and make sure I didn’t erase all of the positive progress we had made. Now I am 16 weeks pregnant and feeling the best I have in many years. More than anything, I feel Dr. Schwartzman helped me regain a perspective on my life that I had sadly lost in the rat race of my working life. I am so very grateful for all of his support in finding this new and improved balance in my life. -Veronica
