Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

Recommended by a friend.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

After the first couple of months, I noticed a huge difference in my bloating and overall inflammation. The practitioner started me on a routine of supplements and following that she recommended I go gluten free. I would say after 3 months of being gluten free and the supplements was when I started to notice a difference overall. I also noticed my afternoon fatigue and overall tiredness decreased as well as my sleep.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

After a couple of months of going to The Spring, I told my practitioner that I wanted to get off of birth control but I wanted to make sure my hormone levels were regular and balanced before doing so. After 5 months of taking supplements to support my kidneys, liver, gallbladder, gut, etc. I stopped taking birth control in February and was able to have a regular menstrual cycle the following month. After taking birth control for 10 years and never experiencing a period, they are now very regular and no debilitating symptoms during my cycle. In November of 2022, I got some blood work back that showed I had unhealthy levels of high cholesterol. I eat a very healthy clean diet and exercise regularly, so my doctor prescribed me a statin. I went to my practitioner at The Spring before taking the statin and shared with her my results, and goals, and that I wanted to see if there was another way we could lower my levels without taking a statin. My practitioner did some muscle testing on me and tested a supplement she thought would work for me and my body. In May of 2023, I got another round of blood work done and my cholesterol levels lowered to a very healthy level without taking a statin.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

The Spring is like a breath of fresh air. Everyone there is kind, genuine, and supportive. The office is such a calm and peaceful space where you feel like there will actually be answers and people who want to help. “I don’t know” or “We can’t help you” are not things you hear at The Spring. They are willing to dig deep into your wellness and get to the root of the problem. I also think it is important to know which supplements you need to be taking and not listen to the internet or social media. The Spring has high quality brands and science-backed brands to choose from with the recommendation of your practitioner on which are best to take for you.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

I have and continue to recommend The Spring to many friends and family members. Everyone who has gone has been extremely happy with their visits and are regular clients. It is important to go to The Spring with an open mind and be relaxed. Being open to different practices of medicine and therapies is something not everyone is comfortable with because they want immediate answers and solutions. Trusting the process and knowing that you are helping your mind, body and soul is very important. I would recommend the spring to anyone and everyone.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

I went to dozens of doctors. Colonoscopies. Took various prescription pills. Tried elimination dieting but nothing worked.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

Was worth a try and I was desperate for something to help. Went in with 100% open mind.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

It was fairly quick. Maybe a few weeks at most to notice I felt exponentially better. Bowel movements were more normal. Not bloated all the time. Felt much more comfortable at night and throughout the day.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

I knew fairly quickly that it was working and I made the right decision. I went from a stomach ache every day. Always constipated or even on the flip side 6-10 bowel movements in a day. I went from feeling bloated most of the time to none at all.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

I was skeptical at first but the moment I realized it was something I was all in on was when I was getting tested and didn’t know what the practitioner was testing. She put a sample of something on my stomach and it immediately started hurting. When she took it off my stomach pain stopped. It was heavy metals and something that was a big problem for me.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

One of the best health decisions I’ve ever made. Changed my life. I was in pain and miserable for years. That made my stress and anxiety elevated too and was a horrible way to live. I’ve never felt better in my life than the last 6-8 months

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes. Go in with an open mind and give the process a chance. Also follow their advice because it works.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Traditional medication for hypothyroidism (levothyroxine) from a doctor with blood draws every six months to determine dosage, temporary diet changes

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I had heard about The Spring from a friend who struggled with auto-immune issues and had great results after seeing The Spring. After being frustrated for many years with worsening symptoms from my hypothyroidism with no relief from traditional medication despite increasing the dose many times, I was willing to try anything. The initial appointment and the wealth of information they asked about my medical history but also about my lifestyle solidified that this was a place that was really interested in their patients and making them feel better long term.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

I noticed improvements in my symptoms within the first two weeks of working with The Spring and taking the recommended supplements, but within a month and a half, my fatigue had decreased dramatically, which was my worst and most pressing symptom in my mind. I previously needed a nap at least once a day in order to have enough energy to complete daily tasks, and now I can go all day without, which has completely changed my life. My anxiety has improved immensely as well knowing the physical connection between my auto-immune disorder and how it manifests in my body.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

I noticed significant improvements in my overall health after three months at The Spring. My body was less bloated, still less fatigued, and I was sleeping like a baby on a consistent basis. Within four months my ADHD & anxiety symptoms lessened as well and even friends & family started to notice. This new normal for me has continued for months since.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

Muscle testing is truly incredible. I absolutely love being able to feel the difference between various supplements that are used, and it really feels like the most effective method of healing symptoms.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

Everything has been better. The people here genuinely care about you holistically, and it has been the game changer in my healing. In my experience going from a traditional medication via a daily pill, to finding the root cause of why your symptoms are occurring allows for such a deeper healing, and not just a bandaid. The appointments are efficient and it feels so good to be “checked” on a consistent basis without a huge time commitment. The supplements are so helpful and I just love that you can grab them right after your appointment. I just know that they want long-term healing for me, my practitioner is an absolute joy to work with, and I can’t thank The Spring enough.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

100%. I have referred multiple friends to The Spring and will tell anyone about them who will listen!! The Spring has truly changed my life in a way that I cannot put into words. The advice I would give to anyone just starting to work with The Spring is to never hold back, even if you feel like you “should” be feeling better or you don’t think a symptom is related, your practitioner and The Spring team can help. One of my favorite times I went to visit The Spring, my practitioner asked how I was doing symptom-wise, and I told her there was really nothing in particular going on, so we proceeded to do our normal check-in. A few minutes in, she asked if I was having some lower back pain. Of course I was, but I just thought it was from working out and not related to why I came to The Spring in the first place, so I didn’t mention it to her before. My practitioner informed me that it was likely related to detoxing heavy metals, gave me a great supplement, and the pain has fully improved.

Traditional medicine

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

After only a few weeks, I began to notice weight loss. A number of different foods were causing a lot of overall health problems. I had no idea that food affects us so dramatically! The most important part of my journey has been learning about food. I have been guided into a deep understanding of food, and this has been literally life changing. I am a 5’2″, and at my heaviest weight I was 290 pounds. As of today, I have lost 120 pounds, I am working toward another 25 pounds which will mean I will have lost half my body weight, and, with the guidance of The Spring, I am confident of reaching this initial goal. I have accomplished this exclusively by the education of food, not just what to eat, but how, when, and why to eat. I am now able to exercise along with moderate strength training. I am building muscle and endurance, I have energy to do things.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

After a few months, certain areas of my body began to hurt less. Honestly, when I first started at The Spring, I literally hurt everywhere, all the way down to the tips of my toes. Suddenly one day I noticed the toe tips didn’t hurt and I was able to rotate my ankles in full circles! Then less pain in my knees, hips, back, shoulders, and arms. After about a year, I was totally off of all medications. No more pain medication or high blood pressure medication. I had also been pre-diabetic, but not anymore. I had autoimmune issues, too. Another issue for me was my memory. I just could not remember things and had to write things down all of the time. Now, that has improved dramatically. Additionally, my hair has stopped falling out and seems thicker and stronger and my nails do not chip and crack anymore.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

For me, muscle testing was easy. I just relax and let my body respond naturally.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

I am still working on issues with The Spring. Ultimately, however, my long-term goal is to continue to acquire the education of healthy eating to live a long, healthy, and active life.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

At The Spring healing begins at the root of the problem, not with a bandaid to cover up symptoms.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

I highly recommend The Spring to everyone. The best advice I can give is to be honest with your practitioner with questions that come up, however, most importantly be honest with yourself. Stay with the long-term plan and don’t be discouraged if things come up that were unexpected, deal with them and be strong in staying the course. It is so worth it!

candida Candida

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Went to see a medical doctor for some of the issues. Was prescribed Adderall for ADHD and anti-fungal medication for the candida.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I’ve always been uncomfortable taking medication. Most of the time it felt like it was treating the symptom not the cause. This was proven by the fact that I had to take a higher dosage over time to address the same symptom. As luck would have it, I was listening to a wellness podcast and they talked about naturopathic medicine. I immediately looked up practitioners in Austin and The Spring popped up and it had a lot of good reviews. So I took the leap.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Roughly speaking I’d say about 2-3 months in.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

About 5 months in I saw increased energy, able to sit and focus on tasks for longer periods of time, increased libido. I’d say the most important one was my mood. I was mostly depressed before going in. One day, a few months into my treatment, I woke up feeling happy. For no apparent reason. Didn’t need to work out or meditate. I was just…happy.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

I vaguely knew about muscle testing before making an appointment with The Spring. Frankly, while I now know more about it, I still don’t fully understand it. My reasoning has always been that the results would speak for themselves. And they have.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

Yes. We are still working on clearing up the Candida. I’m close to graduating!

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

A couple of things have stood out to me. They take a holistic and very personalized approach to treatment. I initially tracked my food intake and different supplements were introduced depending on the progress I was making during the treatment. So while they still gave some attention to the symptoms, their main focus was identifying the cause. Another thing that stood out was the environment. The Spring has done an amazing job handpicking the staff. They are always warm and welcoming, all know and address me by name, and share in my excitement when I share progress.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Absolutely! 110% I would recommend. It’s changed my life. My practitioner told me this would not be a quick fix. I was coming in with years worth of habits and behaviors that got me to where I was. So my advice would be to look at it as a marathon rather than a sprint. And be consistent. And the results will come.

lack-motivation Lack of motivation/daytime sleepiness

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Antibiotics, lots of different detox protocols mainly focused on mold, lots of supplements, some parasite cleansing, moving out of a moldy apartment, various functional medicine doctors, and also conventional medicine.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I had been wanting to see a muscle tester for a long time and I got a good feeling from The Spring. I was also introduced to them through a community I trust.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Within the first month. I had never done any treatment for Lyme or co-infections before The Spring. My practitioner was suspicious of Lyme on the first visit and recommended we do further blood work with a lab specializing in Lyme to confirm the findings. Regardless of the findings, she explained that we needed to build my system up more first before moving onto the next layer. Once the blood work came back confirming Lyme and several co-infections, we began a protocol for Lyme. I began to feel different within a few days! She helped me calm down a seriously bad pain flare-up within that first month — ones that I used to wind up in the ER and get hospitalized for but we were able to calm it down with her protocol. That was a BIG DEAL for me!

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

When I started working with the Spring I had some pretty deep-rooted pathogen issues that hadn’t been dealt with yet. I noticed some improvements within the first month, and I began to notice more significant changes to my overall baseline of how I felt after a couple of months. I am still having occasional flare-ups, but they are much less frequent and shorter duration which tells me we are making a lot of progress and I am healing. They were completely debilitating before. Now I can calm them down fairly quickly.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

It’s been very supportive in helping me identify and handle a number of underlying issues that other providers had not been able to address with me. My practitioner has also introduced me to many extremely helpful supplements I had never used before, and some that I’d never heard of before.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

Yes, I would love to reach a state of health where I no longer have the pain flare-ups at all, that I currently have from time to time. However, these flares are further apart and have a shorter duration than they used to be — which is a HUGE improvement. So far I have been able to avoid hospitalizations since working with the Spring. I also have the goal of healing this chronic rash. It has responded well to some of the treatments but it comes back, so we’re still working on that.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

I’ve really appreciated the continuity and regular checkpoints especially because things seem to change often with my health. Working with The Spring has given me way more stability and feels more like a team effort than other therapies or providers I have tried. They have taught me a lot about my body and what things are affecting it in a different and more applicable way than other providers.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes, I would — and I have recommended The Spring to many friends and family! My advice would be to work with The Spring when you are feeling dedicated to your health and willing to make changes to heal. And that you have to show up and be consistent. This approach works if you work it! And that healing takes time. Focus on progress and pay attention to how your body is responding to things. I am truly INCREDIBLY grateful for the support The Spring team has given me. My health would not be where it is today without them.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

A new approach and something that is non-invasive and based on a combination of body and blood work. I wanted to get away from Rx drugs and focus on healing my body from within, not a band-aid solution.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

It was only a matter of a couple of weeks when I noticed an increase in energy and better sleep. Additionally, I was thinking more clearly and felt like I wasn’t living in a set of clouds. My bowel movements became more “normal” and the consistency was healthy instead of runny.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

Noticing significant improvements in my overall health took a little bit more time and finesse. I knew my body was adjusting to better health because of the subtle changes (increased energy, mood, bowel movements) and never gave up being patient or curious with the process and how my body was responding. After we tackled bowel movements, we moved on to a pretty intense parasite cleanse. After several months, I still was not passing parasites. At this time, The Spring referred me to various emotional therapies and stress management techniques and sure enough, after my first session, I started passing parasites the next day! Once they started purging from my body everything else lined up: my menstrual cramping decreased, blood work showed significant improvement for thyroid and hormonal balance and inflammation and physical weight started to shed. I also began to see, feel and understand the impact mental, emotional, and physical stress can have on our healing. The Spring truly takes a holistic view of the body.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

Very comfortable. My practitioner did an excellent job making me feel relaxed during our sessions together and talked me through every step of the process. She allowed me to ask questions and get curious about her findings. One critical component that stands out about The Spring is that your practitioner really listens and gives you her complete attention. She is not shuffling you out the door before you feel heard. She does not judge you and will go the extra mile educating herself and researching your symptoms in order to find long-term resolutions. She even referred me out to an energy healer to coincide with my muscle testing. This combination has worked wonders and been a huge additive to my health journey.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

We’re now working on fertility and getting my body (and my husband’s!) ready to start trying to conceive.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

The Spring staff treats you like family. The other therapies I tried helped to lead me to The Spring and gave me the perspective that holistic healing takes time. The Spring came into my life when I was in the right headspace to be patient and give it the attention and dedication my body deserved.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes, I have recommended friends and family to The Spring and will continue to do so. Everyone from the front office staff, to client advocates and practitioners are friendly, smart, helpful and non-judgemental. They work quickly and thoroughly. The best gift you can give someone is the gift of good health. The feeling of being healthy is contagious. When people begin to notice a positive change in your demeanor they begin to wonder and want to make the same changes.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

I grew up in a very natural family that always saw naturopaths, used holistic medicine, did NRT, etc, but as an adult I had not really committed to one path or stuck with anything.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I had a friend refer me and after my initial visit I was hooked.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Basically immediately. The bloating and gas were probably the most obvious immediately. I think for me the biggest thing was starting to peel back the layers and finding some underlying issues that I may have not been aware of that were causing me to operate at less than 100%. We tend to get so used to not being 100% that we don’t realize it is possible to feel our best almost all the time.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

I started a parasite cleanse in August/Sept of 2021 and was on it for almost a full year. This is when I noticed the most significant changes in my overall health. We spent a year working on my baseline health and prepping my body for the cleanse, and then hit it hard with the cleanse and all I can say is WOW. It was a game changer. Everything in my life improved, hair, skin, mood, energy, weight, etc. After the cleanse it was also a goal of mine to get pregnant in early 2023 and between the end of cleanse in 2022 and my wedding in Feb 2023 we started to focus on building up my body for that next phase of life. Happy to say I was pregnant shortly after our wedding and have had the smoothest pregnancy ever. I attribute all of this to the work we put in to prep my body over the last couple of years.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

It was something I was very used to having grown up with parents who took us to NRT practitioners but it was cool to see it as an adult and how spot on everything was.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

A quick and easy pregnancy was a top priority for this year and The Spring helped me lay the groundwork for that.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

I loved that they had me commit to a package upfront. I think it is so important with this type of healing to really commit to a period of time because you might not see changes after one visit, but you will after 3, 4, 5.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes! Go in with an open mind. We have normalized not feeling good and that should not be normal! You should be operating at your best all the time because you deserve it.

Of course I was, but I just thought it was from working out and not related to why I came to The Spring in the first place, so I didn’t mention it to her before. My practitioner informed me that it was likely related to detoxing heavy metals, gave me a great supplement, and the pain has fully improved.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

After only a few weeks, I began to notice weight loss. A number of different foods were causing a lot of overall health problems. I had no idea that food affects us so dramatically! The most important part of my journey has been learning about food. I have been guided into a deep understanding of food, and this has been literally life changing. I am a 5’2″, and at my heaviest weight I was 290 pounds. As of today, I have lost 120 pounds, I am working toward another 25 pounds which will mean I will have lost half my body weight, and, with the guidance of The Spring, I am confident of reaching this initial goal. I have accomplished this exclusively by the education of food, not just what to eat, but how, when, and why to eat. I am now able to exercise along with moderate strength training. I am building muscle and endurance, I have energy to do things.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

After a few months, certain areas of my body began to hurt less. Honestly, when I first started at The Spring, I literally hurt everywhere, all the way down to the tips of my toes. Suddenly one day I noticed the toe tips didn’t hurt and I was able to rotate my ankles in full circles! Then less pain in my knees, hips, back, shoulders, and arms. After about a year, I was totally off of all medications. No more pain medication or high blood pressure medication. I had also been pre-diabetic, but not anymore. I had autoimmune issues, too. Another issue for me was my memory. I just could not remember things and had to write things down all of the time. Now, that has improved dramatically. Additionally, my hair has stopped falling out and seems thicker and stronger and my nails do not chip and crack anymore.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

For me, muscle testing was easy. I just relax and let my body respond naturally.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

I am still working on issues with The Spring. Ultimately, however, my long-term goal is to continue to acquire the education of healthy eating to live a long, healthy, and active life.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

At The Spring healing begins at the root of the problem, not with a bandaid to cover up symptoms.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

I highly recommend The Spring to everyone. The best advice I can give is to be honest with your practitioner with questions that come up, however, most importantly be honest with yourself. Stay with the long-term plan and don’t be discouraged if things come up that were unexpected, deal with them and be strong in staying the course. It is so worth it!

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Went to see a medical doctor for some of the issues. Was prescribed Adderall for ADHD and anti-fungal medication for the candida.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I’ve always been uncomfortable taking medication. Most of the time it felt like it was treating the symptom not the cause. This was proven by the fact that I had to take a higher dosage over time to address the same symptom. As luck would have it, I was listening to a wellness podcast and they talked about naturopathic medicine. I immediately looked up practitioners in Austin and The Spring popped up and it had a lot of good reviews. So I took the leap.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Roughly speaking I’d say about 2-3 months in.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

About 5 months in I saw increased energy, able to sit and focus on tasks for longer periods of time, increased libido. I’d say the most important one was my mood. I was mostly depressed before going in. One day, a few months into my treatment, I woke up feeling happy. For no apparent reason. Didn’t need to work out or meditate. I was just…happy.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

I vaguely knew about muscle testing before making an appointment with The Spring. Frankly, while I now know more about it, I still don’t fully understand it. My reasoning has always been that the results would speak for themselves. And they have.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

Yes. We are still working on clearing up the Candida. I’m close to graduating!

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

A couple of things have stood out to me. They take a holistic and very personalized approach to treatment. I initially tracked my food intake and different supplements were introduced depending on the progress I was making during the treatment. So while they still gave some attention to the symptoms, their main focus was identifying the cause. Another thing that stood out was the environment. The Spring has done an amazing job handpicking the staff. They are always warm and welcoming, all know and address me by name, and share in my excitement when I share progress.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Absolutely! 110% I would recommend. It’s changed my life. My practitioner told me this would not be a quick fix. I was coming in with years worth of habits and behaviors that got me to where I was. So my advice would be to look at it as a marathon rather than a sprint. And be consistent. And the results will come.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

Antibiotics, lots of different detox protocols mainly focused on mold, lots of supplements, some parasite cleansing, moving out of a moldy apartment, various functional medicine doctors, and also conventional medicine.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I had been wanting to see a muscle tester for a long time and I got a good feeling from The Spring. I was also introduced to them through a community I trust.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Within the first month. I had never done any treatment for Lyme or co-infections before The Spring. My practitioner was suspicious of Lyme on the first visit and recommended we do further blood work with a lab specializing in Lyme to confirm the findings. Regardless of the findings, she explained that we needed to build my system up more first before moving onto the next layer. Once the blood work came back confirming Lyme and several co-infections, we began a protocol for Lyme. I began to feel different within a few days! She helped me calm down a seriously bad pain flare-up within that first month — ones that I used to wind up in the ER and get hospitalized for but we were able to calm it down with her protocol. That was a BIG DEAL for me!

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

When I started working with the Spring I had some pretty deep-rooted pathogen issues that hadn’t been dealt with yet. I noticed some improvements within the first month, and I began to notice more significant changes to my overall baseline of how I felt after a couple of months. I am still having occasional flare-ups, but they are much less frequent and shorter duration which tells me we are making a lot of progress and I am healing. They were completely debilitating before. Now I can calm them down fairly quickly.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

It’s been very supportive in helping me identify and handle a number of underlying issues that other providers had not been able to address with me. My practitioner has also introduced me to many extremely helpful supplements I had never used before, and some that I’d never heard of before.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

Yes, I would love to reach a state of health where I no longer have the pain flare-ups at all, that I currently have from time to time. However, these flares are further apart and have a shorter duration than they used to be — which is a HUGE improvement. So far I have been able to avoid hospitalizations since working with the Spring. I also have the goal of healing this chronic rash. It has responded well to some of the treatments but it comes back, so we’re still working on that.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

I’ve really appreciated the continuity and regular checkpoints especially because things seem to change often with my health. Working with The Spring has given me way more stability and feels more like a team effort than other therapies or providers I have tried. They have taught me a lot about my body and what things are affecting it in a different and more applicable way than other providers.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes, I would — and I have recommended The Spring to many friends and family! My advice would be to work with The Spring when you are feeling dedicated to your health and willing to make changes to heal. And that you have to show up and be consistent. This approach works if you work it! And that healing takes time. Focus on progress and pay attention to how your body is responding to things. I am truly INCREDIBLY grateful for the support The Spring team has given me. My health would not be where it is today without them.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

A new approach and something that is non-invasive and based on a combination of body and blood work. I wanted to get away from Rx drugs and focus on healing my body from within, not a band-aid solution.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

It was only a matter of a couple of weeks when I noticed an increase in energy and better sleep. Additionally, I was thinking more clearly and felt like I wasn’t living in a set of clouds. My bowel movements became more “normal” and the consistency was healthy instead of runny.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

Noticing significant improvements in my overall health took a little bit more time and finesse. I knew my body was adjusting to better health because of the subtle changes (increased energy, mood, bowel movements) and never gave up being patient or curious with the process and how my body was responding. After we tackled bowel movements, we moved on to a pretty intense parasite cleanse. After several months, I still was not passing parasites. At this time, The Spring referred me to various emotional therapies and stress management techniques and sure enough, after my first session, I started passing parasites the next day! Once they started purging from my body everything else lined up: my menstrual cramping decreased, blood work showed significant improvement for thyroid and hormonal balance and inflammation and physical weight started to shed. I also began to see, feel and understand the impact mental, emotional, and physical stress can have on our healing. The Spring truly takes a holistic view of the body.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

Very comfortable. My practitioner did an excellent job making me feel relaxed during our sessions together and talked me through every step of the process. She allowed me to ask questions and get curious about her findings. One critical component that stands out about The Spring is that your practitioner really listens and gives you her complete attention. She is not shuffling you out the door before you feel heard. She does not judge you and will go the extra mile educating herself and researching your symptoms in order to find long-term resolutions. She even referred me out to an energy healer to coincide with my muscle testing. This combination has worked wonders and been a huge additive to my health journey.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

We’re now working on fertility and getting my body (and my husband’s!) ready to start trying to conceive.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

The Spring staff treats you like family. The other therapies I tried helped to lead me to The Spring and gave me the perspective that holistic healing takes time. The Spring came into my life when I was in the right headspace to be patient and give it the attention and dedication my body deserved.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes, I have recommended friends and family to The Spring and will continue to do so. Everyone from the front office staff, to client advocates and practitioners are friendly, smart, helpful and non-judgemental. They work quickly and thoroughly. The best gift you can give someone is the gift of good health. The feeling of being healthy is contagious. When people begin to notice a positive change in your demeanor they begin to wonder and want to make the same changes.

Treatment/Modalities Pursued Before The Spring?

I grew up in a very natural family that always saw naturopaths, used holistic medicine, did NRT, etc, but as an adult I had not really committed to one path or stuck with anything.

Why Did You Choose To Become A Client At The Spring?

I had a friend refer me and after my initial visit I was hooked.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Begin To Notice Improvement In Your Initial Symptoms Listed Above?

Basically immediately. The bloating and gas were probably the most obvious immediately. I think for me the biggest thing was starting to peel back the layers and finding some underlying issues that I may have not been aware of that were causing me to operate at less than 100%. We tend to get so used to not being 100% that we don’t realize it is possible to feel our best almost all the time.

How Long After Working With The Spring Did You Notice Significant Improvements In Your Overall Health?

I started a parasite cleanse in August/Sept of 2021 and was on it for almost a full year. This is when I noticed the most significant changes in my overall health. We spent a year working on my baseline health and prepping my body for the cleanse, and then hit it hard with the cleanse and all I can say is WOW. It was a game changer. Everything in my life improved, hair, skin, mood, energy, weight, etc. After the cleanse it was also a goal of mine to get pregnant in early 2023 and between the end of cleanse in 2022 and my wedding in Feb 2023 we started to focus on building up my body for that next phase of life. Happy to say I was pregnant shortly after our wedding and have had the smoothest pregnancy ever. I attribute all of this to the work we put in to prep my body over the last couple of years.

What Was Your Experience With Muscle Testing At The Spring?

It was something I was very used to having grown up with parents who took us to NRT practitioners but it was cool to see it as an adult and how spot on everything was.

Are There Any Secondary Health Goals You’re Now Working Towards With The Spring?

A quick and easy pregnancy was a top priority for this year and The Spring helped me lay the groundwork for that.

How Was Your Experience At The Spring Different From Previous Therapies?

I loved that they had me commit to a package upfront. I think it is so important with this type of healing to really commit to a period of time because you might not see changes after one visit, but you will after 3, 4, 5.

Would You Recommend The Spring To A Friend Or Family?

Yes! Go in with an open mind. We have normalized not feeling good and that should not be normal! You should be operating at your best all the time because you deserve it.
