“I started coming to Congruent Life when my husband and I started talking seriously about my need to go to a higher level of care for my eating disorder. After two hospitalizations in the past three years, I knew it was time to try something completely different than the psychiatrists, therapists, and medications. When I started going to Congruent Life, my mood was very unstable and anxiety was extremely high, especially regarding food and exercise, I was at a weight much lower than my healthy range, and I had lost my menstrual cycle for over a year. When I found Congruent Life, it all started to make sense- I had never heard anything about my nervous system from my previous care providers. True recovery from my eating disorder would not happen until I started taking care of my master controller, the nervous system!

For the first time in a LONG time, I feel SO hopeful, empowered, and excited about the healthy life that is ahead of me, a life I was not sure I’d ever be capable of. Since starting care, my anxiety levels have reduced significantly and I am better able to adapt to stressors coming my way. The connection between my body and mind has improved in amazing ways. After just a few adjustments, my hunger signals started to return and I was better able to nourish my body in appropriate ways, thanks to the education from Dr. Mike which has really changed the way I view my body and the awesome ways it functions. Also because of this, I have been able to restore weight at home instead of in the hospital. Getting to stay at home with my husband, puppies, friends, and everything I love has been absolutely priceless. And my menstrual cycle has returned. It has been so amazing to be able to have to fun talks and dreams with my husband, excited that we will one day be able to try to have a family. I have been told many times that it was highly unlikely I’d ever be able to get pregnant or carry a child and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Mike for giving us hope again. On top of all of this, I am sleeping better, I am able to better focus and engage in relationships and conversations, my body has physically felt amazing whether it’s been increased flexibility in yoga or boosted endurance while running. I have heard so many awesome comments from family & friends about how much better, happier, and healthier I seem and I am so happy that I can agree 100% with them.

Dr. Mike is truly unlike any healthcare provider I have ever worked with. He always addresses me with compassion, understanding, and curiosity. At my first appointment, he allowed me to share my struggles with mental illness and he was able to both provide comfort and so much information and educate me in ways to help me understand how normal these illnesses are and how treatable they are through chiropractic. For people struggling with mental health who are being told they will likely never get better or have to take medication for the rest of their lives, I truly want to yell from the rooftops that chiropractic works. Getting adjusted is always a highlight of my day. Everyone deserves to receive this quality of care. I am so grateful to Dr. Mike, Mady, and Victoria for the passion they practice. Congruent Life has saved and changed my life!”

“I originally came to Congruent Life because I thought they might be able to help me with my anxiety, which would allow me to decrease my medication. My anxiety held me back from doing a lot of fun things with my daughter. We wouldn’t go out into the heat because I might have a panic attack and pass out. I wouldn’t do anything that involved heights, because my anxiety was just too high. I missed out on a lot of experiences with my daughter. My anxiety also caused a lot of stress in the workplace. If I wasn’t performing perfectly, I was terrified someone might be mad at me. I felt like I was trying so hard, and my only option was medication. I didn’t want to rely on medications, especially since I was still struggling. My anxiety caused me to suffer in many areas of my life, rather than explore life.

Since starting care at Congruent Life my anxiety levels have definitely decreased and I am so much more care free now. They were so different because they put an actual plan in place and tracked my progress along the way with the neurological scans. It really helped me put my full trust in them. I’ve been able to decrease my anxiety medication for the first time in YEARS, and I have hope that I can continue to decrease!

My daughter and I are connecting so much more now. I’m able to give her attention rather than just getting through the day. I’m able to actually BE with her, and not just in the same room! I’m just so hopeful looking into the future!”

“I originally started care because of a back issue I was having, but I had also been suffering with anxiety and depression for a long time. My depression and anxiety really started when I was pregnant with my now 5 year old, but I just let it go. Then when I got pregnant with my youngest, it continued to get worse. I was always against going on medication, but I was at my breaking point. My kids needed me, and I didn’t know what else to do. I tried to get out of the house and do things for myself, but nothing was working. Ultimately I decided to get on medication to help me.

I had been on 3 different medications, with multiple doses for the last 3 years. They kept increasing doses, and I felt dependent. I knew I wanted to try something different. What I was doing just wasn’t working for me. My son started care at CLC, and after seeing the great results he was getting I decided to take the jump and start care as well.

The big difference with CLC was the freedom that came with being truly heard. You actually helped me figure out the cause of my struggles and I felt hope that I could find help without covering up my symptoms! You listened to my actual needs and told me WHY I was struggling. Seeing it on paper with the scans, and hearing you explain it made perfect sense. I finally understood why I was feeling so down, depressed, stressed and anxious.

After a few weeks of care not only was my back issue improving, I didn’t need that extra cup of coffee in the morning. I actually wanted to get up and start my day! I wanted to keep going to get better! My mom even started to notice my extra motivation for things! It’s truly amazing to go somewhere where they actually care about you, and how your week is going. I’m so glad Dr. Mike gave me the extra push to get myself scanned and start care, because I didn’t know I could feel this good! It’s nice to know there are good people out there that really want to help you!

Coming here is the highlight of my week! I feel like I am being truly heard and healed! Since starting care, this is the best I’ve ever felt! Things aren’t perfect, but my anxiety isn’t constant anymore and I can deal with it now. I can just breath and know my body is healing. After taking medication for 3 years, I am finally off it all!!”

“Emma struggled with separation anxiety, and cried all the time about not being “normal”. She struggled in school and had to go to the counselors office to help her cope and make it through the day. She was missing class all the time, and was always having to make up work. She was self conscious, and as a mom I was worried about her being made fun of and the impact that would have socially.

Emma really wouldn’t leave her room. She was sad, and stressed from all the school work she had to make up. When I had to leave and go to activities, she would cry and hold on to me. Someone would have to physically pull her off of me. She missed out on a lot because of her stress and anxiety. She was on 3 medications, taking 8 pills every day.

After starting care at Congruent Life, we noticed a difference in her happiness right away. We stopped her tick medication pretty soon after starting. After 2 months we decreased the other meds, and after several months she is COMPLETELY OFF ALL HER MEDICATIONS!!

What does life look like for Emma now? A couple months ago she went to a friend’s house and spent the night, she was SO proud! She is happier, and no longer has a facial tick. She is going to school FULL days and doesn’t have to go to the counselors office. She’s more confident, and she even tried out & performed in the school talent show ALONE in front of the whole school! She’s even thinking about getting into b-ball this year! Emma can just be a regular kid and be more social without anxiety or fear!”

“Before starting care at CLC I was suffering with back/leg pain, headaches, depression, anxiety, poor sleep and STRESS. I was either sleeping all the time, or not sleeping at all. I was taking 4-5 medications daily for my depression, anxiety and ADD. I had even been hospitalized twice for depression. I felt like a total mess! I felt like I had hit rock bottom. I had a hard time enjoying my grandkids. I couldn’t get on the floor to play, and I couldn’t go to the park with them or go for walks. I was not enjoying my life.

The moment I realized that my care at Congruent Life was making a difference was in my first week of care when I went in with a headache (didn’t tell Dr. Mike) and when I left it was gone! Since starting care at CLC I can now enjoy playing with my grandkids and taking walks! I’m in so much less pain and it’s even motivated me to watch what I eat! I actually get out of bed before my alarm goes off, rather then sleeping all the time like before. For the first time in my LIFE I’m not on any medications! I finally enjoyed the holiday season for the first time in 10 years! I’m enjoying life and my grandkids!”

“I first came to CLC because I was struggling with anxiety, depression, severe menstrual cramps, lack of energy/motivation and panic attacks. I would either have to bathe myself in peace & calming or valor essential oils or suffer side effects of medication.

The doctors at Congruent Life were different because they wanted to get to the root causes & help my brain send the appropriate signals! I realized Chiropractic care was working when my suicidal ideation + irritability diminished and I had increased energy + joy!

Since being under care at CLC I am more motivated to workout, I love being a mama even more and I am getting my passion & zeal for life back! The cramping I used to experience during my periods has improved drastically. Postpartum depression and anxiety sucked that away from me -but with functional medicine, aromatherapy & Congruent Life Chiropractic I am learning to thrive again! Thank you!”

“I initially came to Congruent because I was having migraines beyond belief; they paralyzed me to the point I couldn’t get up and do daily functions. They were so bad ibuprofen wouldn’t touch them. I also had very shakey hands and my weight fluctuated a lot. I was experiencing extreme fatigue and had a lot of brain fog. My menstrual cramps were unbearable and I had a very sluggish digestive system.

I didn’t want to feel like this forever. I just wanted a day to wake up and not wonder if I’m gonna feel like crude; not wonder if I’m going to get a migraine; not be hesitant to show someone a picture on my phone because my hands are shaking so bad. I had been struggling with all of this stuff for about a year and I just wanted to feel GOOD again.

I don’t love going to the doctor, for my whole life it’s never been my first resort. I hated the idea of going on any type of migraine medication. I was at a loss of what to do. I knew I had to try CLC first. I finally pulled the trigger and started care here; it’s helped me with every single symptom that I came in with.

CLC got to the root cause. You found out what the real problem was, where as other places would have just masked the issues with medications and prescriptions. When I saw all the stress on my neurological scans at my first appointment, I was actually relieved that everything I was experiencing wasn’t just in my head, I could see it right there on paper.

You can tell you guys genuinely care about your patients; I feel so comfortable here. I have never felt comfortable at a doctor’s office until I came here. You want to know that you are being taken care of, that YOU matter, and that’s what I feel here.

I started feeling better immediately. The first time I got adjusted, I came in with a headache and left without a headache; I haven’t had a migraine since! Before, I couldn’t even get my pain during my cycle to a manageable amount WITH ibuprofen, now my cramps are very minimal or not there at all! My digestion has also improved significantly!

After the first month of care, my hands stopped shaking! I was feeling so much more energized. My brain fog was gone! I wasn’t able to focus on anything or be present before…now, it’s just so different! My anxiety and depression have improved so much; because so many of my other symptoms that were draining me have improved significantly, I am now better able to focus my energy on healthy ways to manage my anxiety and depression. It’s very apparent to people I am around on a daily basis that my health has improved by a landslide. I was shocked how quickly I started feeling better in literally every aspect of my health.

My life is just way better now. I am HEALING. You guys have helped me more than you know. I can’t even believe I let myself go so long feeling the way I was. I am so incredibly thankful I found CLC.

“I started chiropractic care in June 2016 because I had chronic migraines and hoped it would help lessen them. My migraines started at age 15 and worsened as I got older, with no real reason that a doctor could give me. At its peak, I was seeing a doctor at least 1x/month to get a shot of tylenol/benadryl to help a migraine go away, because it wouldn’t on its own. This was in addition to taking a daily preventative medication and another prescription for when I got a “breakthrough” migraine. I spent a lot of time in bed, in silence, with the lights off. It affected my life by making me miss school/classes, many activities with friends, and work shifts. When I did get out of bed, I was miserable and very irritable. After a few months of chiropractic care, I stopped getting migraines, and now it’s rare that I even get a headache. I never imagined it would improve this much!

Originally I just sought care for migraines, but I then realized there was SO MUCH MORE that CLC could and did help me with. Shortly before I started care, I had also seen a general practitioner for my anxiety, OCD, and nervous ticks. The doctor asked me what I knew about anti-depressants and suggested that it was the best option for me. I proceeded to take anti-depressants for a few months, which made me irritable, dull, everything was hazy, and I seemed to be indifferent or unhappy about everything. I was not in a good place. After 1 month of care, I slowly took myself off the medication and noticed significant improvement.

I also took a daily medication for UTI’s, which I got at least 1x/month. I didn’t think anything of this, since I had been getting them since I was a baby. The doctor simply blamed it on genetics. As the first month of care went by, I realized that I hadn’t gotten a UTI. I haven’t had one since, and I definitely don’t take a prescription for it anymore! I’m excited to say that I’m now off ALL medications.

It’s hard to even remember what my life was like before chiropractic care! Telling my story has made me realize that I can’t even imagine going back to how I was. I asked my fiance how he thinks chiropractic has helped me. He explained that I’m much more outgoing, energetic, and active. He described a time when I was constantly stressed out, had no hope of getting better, and was always pessimistic. I was unable to live life how we wanted to. Now, our relationship has improved because I am able to be the best version of myself!

I can’t thank Dr. Mike and Congruent Life enough! They provide hope and promote overall wellbeing for all of their patients. Dr. Mike not only encourages you to receive regular adjustments, but he encourages you to educate yourself. There’s so many things that chiropractic has done for me that I didn’t even know were possible. Through being a patient at Congruent Life, my ENTIRE life has been CHANGED for the better!”

Coming to Congruent has been amazing to say the least. I started going to chiropractors a long time ago because of my scoliosis, but I had never experienced the level of care and healing you provide your patients with here. I moved to the area for college and knew I needed to find a new chiropractor, I’m so thankful I found CLC.

Before care at Congruent, it was very hard to sit still and focus in class. On top of that, all of the college books I was having to carry around was taking a toll on my body physically. I was extremely tense everywhere. The new surroundings and demands of college added a lot of emotional stress to my plate that I wasn’t handling well. My stress levels were all over the place and I was struggling with severe anxiety that was consuming my life. My sleep was horrible which led to a lot of fatigue and low energy. Additionally, I had experienced DAILY nausea, for the last 2 years; the thought of breakfast made we want to throw up.

SO MUCH has changed since beginning at CLC. My morning sickness has improved significantly; I was actually able to start eating breakfast without the nausea for the first time in YEARS! Before, my nervous system was too stressed to be able to digest food appropriately, but now I can fuel my body in the mornings to give me more energy throughout the day. The tightness between my shoulders has gone down by a lot and my body overall feels much more relaxed. One of the biggest changes I have noticed has been in my sleep and energy. Before, I would have nights where I’d be up all night long, which led to days where I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed. Now, I’m able to fall asleep at night and stay asleep rather than waking throughout the night, which has allowed me to wake up in the mornings with energy instead of feeling fatigued all day. I’m SO MUCH more energized!! That’s been extremely helpful to keep up with the demands between school and work as a college student.

Another HUGE change has been in my ability to handle stress. 6 months ago, one stressful situation would have just tipped me over the edge and I would freak out, my anxiety would go crazy and would often end in a panic attack. It was like having one drop of water in cup that would just cause all my stress to start overflowing, I couldn’t handle it well at all. The stress felt like it was crumbling me up and I couldn’t function. Now, I’m able to actually breath through my stress! Chiropractic has allowed me to utilize coping mechanisms so much better, rather than having the stress completely consume my mind and body. I can look at a problem more rationally and be able to solve it, now that my brain and nervous system aren’t always locked in fight or flight mode. Not only does my body feel so much better, but more importantly my MIND does.

When I was in high school, I actually worked at a chiro’s office and had a basic understanding of chiropractic; but when I came to CLC my eyes were completely opened to the neurological and functional aspect of how adjustments help the nervous system function better; your approach is much more wellness based which I LOVE, rather than always just focusing on pain. The doctors tell me exactly what is going on internally and how my nervous system is responding to adjustments FUNCTIONALLY, which is something I have never had with my prior chiropractic experiences. I really enjoy that aspect, it’s really encouraging to gain an understanding of what is going on with my body internally, you really involve me in the healing process which is so important, it gives me more motivation to want to lead a healthier life style in general.

This was my first chiropractic experience where I had the neurological scans done; they were so validating! I had never actually been able to SEE where the stress was at in my body and just how bad it was; you were able to explain to me what my symptoms were trying to communicate, WHY certain systems of my body weren’t functioning optimally, and how that was connected to my nervous system. It has really allowed me understand how chiropractic is helping my body heal, as well as those steps I can do along with you guys to heal myself fully; it’s been such an empowering experience. My chiropractic experience before all seemed to just revolve around pain, but you guys have gone way above and beyond that. You look at the WHOLE nervous system to restore function. I’ve been able to see so much progress on my scans along this healing journey. Knowing that not only am I feeling so much better, but also functioning so much better INTERNALLY has been so motivating for me to want to lead a healthier life style.

I am actually planning to go to chiropractic school in a few years! You guys have inspired me so much to want to incorporate so much of what you do here for your patients into my practice in the future to help people live a life where they feel and function their best! It’s so cool coming here and watching you care for so many kids and pregnant women, and really teaching people about how to be proactive in their health and healing journeys.
