"She's never had normal periods..." —Debbie W.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

My daughter is 18 years old.  She's never had normal periods.  Her periods would come as they liked, sometimes every month, but then she would go without a period for months.  Doctors had put her on birth control pills for a period of 2 years. But, we were afraid of the side effects and we knew that pills are just a temporary measure that does not produce long lasting healing.

Lately she's been very uncomfortable. She felt like she was putting too much weight on and her skin was breaking out.  My family had used homeopathy for years and I was familiar with the concept. We just did not know a good Homeopath in Newport Beach.

Dr. Afari recommended Dahlia and we had the best experience ever. My daughter is having normal regular periods every month, her skin looks great and little by little she has lost about 10 pounds. Also, a few other symptoms, like dizziness, nausea, bloating and cramping that she had always experienced with her periods are completely gone. Needless to say that my daughter is very pleased and her level of confidence has totally changed.

Thank you so much for all you have done for us Dahlia!

"I had allergies and unrelenting stress..." —Lyndsey

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I was originally referred to Dahlia because I had been living with allergies and unrelenting stress. I had no idea what to expect or how it worked and honestly I did not care. The only thing that mattered was that if it did work I would be a more complete, happier person.

When Dahlia first asked me to describe how I felt, "popcorn" was my immediate response. I was popping in every which way and I knew I needed to get grounded. Almost immediately after my first visit and without changing my busy schedule I was balanced in life. Stress become less and less and I began making the time to do the things I knew fulfilled me as a person. 

It has been 4 years from my first visit. I am allergy free. I will remain a passionate follower of homeopathic practices for life. There are no words I can use to describe all that can be treated with homeopathy except that I feel as if I can reach my complete potential as a human: mentally, physically and emotionally.

"I was getting recurring sinus infections..." —Gina M.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

Dear Dahlia,

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done for my family. When I came to you 7 months ago, I was getting recurring sinus infections almost every month to the point that my body had become so resistant to different kind of antibiotics that my doctor had a hard time prescribing effective antibiotics.

I was also suffering from anxiety and depression so much that most days I did not even want to wake up dreading the day ahead of me. I was getting my periods every two weeks and my gynecologist had suggested that I get on birth control for my hormones to get balanced again. After bringing my daughter to you and seeing the difference in her physical and emotional level once she was treated by you, I decided that I needed to come to you, as well.

I was hoping I could experience feeling healthy -- physically and emotionally. What I am experiencing today is far more than I ever expected. Now I wake up looking forward to the day ahead of me with so much energy. Having a degree in psychology, I always thought therapy would be the answer to the way I felt emotionally.

However, what homeopathy has done for me does not even compare to any other treatment that I had ever sought. I can not thank you enough for what you have done for my family and me.

It is such a joy to see my daughter blossoming and embracing life with a healthy body and mind, too.

"I was hit by IBS in college..." —Kate H.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

Dear Dahlia,

I was hit by IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) ever since I was in college. That was 20 years ago. At first it did not look serious and I thought by changing some food habits I could just live normally. As years went by with the amount of stress in my life this condition got worse and worse and it got to a point that dieting would not help. 

When I came to see you, I was desperate. I had tried the conventional approach for almost 20 years and I was not doing well at all. My therapist recommended that I should come to see you. I agreed to go through the expense, even though it was very hard for me. She assured me that you could help, and that she had known of other people who had tried Homeopathy and were happy with the results.

I did not know anything about Homeopathy, so it was hard to trust. I decided to accept my therapist’s suggestion just because I had been her patient for the last 12 years. I came to you with a lot of disbelief!

I cannot tell you enough of my experience with you. The first session was amazing and very different from anything that I had experienced before. You patiently explained the procedure and explained that we need to treat the root cause of my disease. And also that only by knowing me you would be able to give the correct remedy or the “Similimum." I think my life changed ever since that first session. 

However the real effect started happening within the first 4 weeks. I started having less and less bouts of my condition. I started feeling stronger and happier within 10 days of taking the remedy. It was pretty interesting, because I only took two tiny pellets. I first thought it was a joke. How could two little pellets do so much for me! 

I was so surprised that I tried to attribute the change to any other thing that I could imagine, but there was no change in my life, besides the remedy! I came to see you a month after my first visit and you did your evaluation work.

This time I knew it was the remedy, because within 48 hours I started feeling even better. The bouts of diarrhea and constipation decreased that month drastically and I continued to feel stronger. Things that could overwhelm me around the house and with my children affected me less. My tolerance was building up beautifully and I felt a freedom from within. 

I cannot tell you how much of a difference this has made in our lives. I also should be thanking you for the health of my son and daughter and my husband. We are all very healthy and we owe it to your work. Homeopathy is like a treasure box. We are so lucky to have found it!

"My irritability and anger is history..." —Jackie N.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

I have generally been a healthy woman. Ever since 3 years ago I had noticed that two weeks before my period, I would be very irritable and impatient.  Not wanting to deal with anything, I did not want to deal with any of my children’s homework or any of my usual duties.  I also had noticed that my periods were much heavier and darker than normal and the backache that I had always experienced was increasing, too.

Dr. Shemtob was able to put me back to a state of balance that I had not experienced for a while. Thanks to her, now my children and husband do not have to suffer two weeks of the month. The irritability and anger is history, my backache is gone and my periods are normal again. I am 48 years old and my OBGYN had put me on hormones; she thought it was all because I am pre-menopausal, but it had not helped. Homeopathy worked like a charm!

"My sleeping pills gave me nightmares..." —Ann M.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

Dahlia,

I came to see you 5 years ago when I started going through menopause. I had such strong hot flashes, sleeplessness and anxiety. I had used prescription drugs for my symptoms, but I had side effects from them and I still had many problems. For instance the sleeping pills gave me nightmares and I really hated that! 

Hormones were not a good solution for me either, because of the history of cancer in my family, besides I did not feel comfortable with taking synthetic hormones. I came to you on the recommendation of my chiropractor.

I was amazed at the fact that my hot flashes, which were about 20 times a day, went away in a few days. Also very soon after I noticed that my headaches were disappearing. I had also started sleeping better, the quality of my sleep also changed, in the sense that it became much deeper and more peaceful. My horrible dreams started disappearing, too. I could never have achieved such results without Homeopathy.

"Traditional doctors could not help me..." —Kathy B.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I enjoyed 50 years of excellent health and had no signs of any type of allergies or tendency to have sinus or respiratory problems.

At age 51, I developed severe sinusitis, a debilitating cough and asthma. I was told it was caused by allergies and I tested positive for allergies with traditional allergy testing.

I coughed throughout the night every night for three months and it was so severe that it fractured several ribs. This happened twice. Prescription cough medicines did not help. I developed asthma and had many attacks.

An allergist prescribed Prednisone and then Advair (steroids) and I had trouble sleeping. I was taking Advair for one year before I discovered homeopathy. Instead of spending up to one year getting allergy shots, homeopathy helped me!
 
With Dahlia's help, I no longer need any medication. My breathing is normal, my sinusitis is gone and I have no allergy signs.

The traditional doctors could not help me, but homeopathy has given me my quality of life back. My energy is great and I feel better now than I had in many years.

I am so grateful for this wonderful, natural cure!

"My last hope for my son..." —Beverly S.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

Dear Dahlia,

I experienced the magic of Homeopathy many years ago with my son. He was about 11 months old, still not sitting or even turning. He had very soft muscles and did not react much to anything. He was developmentally about 4 months old and the doctors attributed that to the early closure of his fontanels and their only solution was surgery, which was to be performed two months later. I turned to Homeopathy as my last hope with the recommendation of one of my friends who was your patient.

The results were astounding; within 48 hours my son started to turn and within a week he was able to sit. His reflexes were getting strong and there was so much improvement within a month that the neurologist was not only amazed at his progress, he was not sure why he had recommended the surgery. Of course the surgery was cancelled and my son has been continuing to do very well and now he is a normal 4th grader. Thank you.

"I can have a normal life now..." —Rita G.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors. 

Hi Dahlia,

I just want to tell you that I am able to work and have a normal life. I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue and it had incapacitated me.  I had done everything under the sun to treat this disease, nothing helped until I came to you.  Even though I still come to see you occasionally, the Chronic Fatigue is history and my life is completely normal in that respect, I have not been to a conventional doctor ever since I have started seeing you! I couldn't be more grateful!

"My son had some of the worst headaches you can imagine..." —Jane M.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

My son had some of the worst headaches you can imagine. I have a feeling he had these headaches ever since he was a newborn. We knew he was very uncomfortable but we did not know what was going on.

Later he was on a lot of antibiotics because they thought it was a sinus infection, and he was very prone to colds and ear infections, whooping cough; he used to catch almost any cold. The headaches made it very hard for him to concentrate and do any mental work, meaning reading or listening intently!

He would always complain of the fact that as soon as he wanted to concentrate or study the headaches would get worse. Also he had one of the worst constipation, he would only go every 3 to 5 days. 

Dr. Dahlia had to change his remedy about 3 times, but the last remedy that we got, changed everything so drastically. The two first remedies were not bad, but she is a perfectionist. She kept saying that there has to be a better remedy to cure the headaches altogether with the constipation, and that is exactly what happened, after the last remedy we could see why she was not happy with the other two remedies.

My son -- after 6 months of seeing her -- has no headaches now and his bowel movements are completely normal and everyday. On top of that, he is able to concentrate in class and his grades are improving every day. Dr. Shemtob is really gifted in what she does and Homeopathy is God’s given gift!

Thank you so much, Dr. Dahlia,
Jane M.

"At a dead end filled with physical pain..." —Tracey

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I am a new patient of Dahlia's and brand new to homeopathy. This surprises even me, as I have received the benefit of being exposed to alternative healing methodologies early in life through my ever-so-forward thinking mother.  We all have received scars in life that touch us emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

In my path to wellness, I explored counseling, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, and traditional Western medicine. But I was only getting better incrementally and never felt truly healed.  I spent six years searching for wellness, balance, freedom from fear and hoping for inner peace. While the methods I mentioned provided some relief, it wasn't touching my core. A dear friend of mine suggested (over at least a three year period) that I pursue homeopathic treatment. I didn't think a remedy could provide the depth of healing that I so desperately sought.

At a dead end filled with physical pain, emotional pain covered up by anti-depressants, nights spent without sleeping and bone-deep fatigue, I just gave up. My friend nudged me again and so I called Dahlia.  What I want you, dear reader, to understand, is that I have walked too many miles unnecessarily without relief. I don't want you to experience another day of your symptoms, as I did, running in the wrong direction. What I found with Dahlia's approach is truly healing in its highest level. I have reached places in my life that I didn't ever dream of aspiring to, in happiness, peace, restored physical health and freedom from fear.  My prayer is that you, too, will allow this healing to enter your life.  Let it begin. Your place of healing is waiting for you. Dahlia is a healer blessed with the knowledge to give you the tools so you can heal yourself. Selah.

Love & blessings,
Tracey

"I had always been constipated..." —Diana B.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

Hi Dahlia,

I like to tell you about the impact of Homeopathy in my life. I first got to know about you through my local health food store. I was there looking yet for another brand of laxative, one that would not harm my system. 

The sales person, who seemed like a very informed and knowledgeable man tried to help me with the best ones. I had either used them already, or I had bad reaction to them.

Finally he asked me of how long I had been struggling with the condition, and I told him that as far as I remembered I have always been constipated. He told me that in order to treat chronic conditions like this, I would need to go to a Classical Homeopath.

At the time I did not know anything about Homeopathy. I asked him if he knew of an experienced Homeopath and he recommended you. I am so grateful to God that I trusted him and came to see you. My constipation now has been history, however what I had not told the sales person was that I was also suffering from depression and chronic tiredness. No energy to go through my day. All of those symptoms also improved with my remedy. 

Within the last 3 years I must have used my remedy three or 4 times in total, and every time I notice a general sense of well-being and happiness and my physical symptoms would go away within a few days. Homeopathy has been my savior. Thanks so much!

"I was suffering from extreme migraine headaches..." —Dana J.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

Dear Dahlia,

I just wanted to thank you and tell you that you have been in my prayers ever since I came to you. I was suffering from a deep depression and a lot of anxiety, which stopped me from having a normal life. 

Sleeplessness had become very severe. On top of that I was suffering from extreme migraine headaches which could hit any time.  The ones before my period were excruciating, but I was not spared from every day headaches either! 

I had tried the medical field with no avail, but of course I was on three different chemical drugs, and I was still feeling all these symptoms!  Within 6 weeks of taking the remedy I felt really different. My headaches had become less severe and they were not happening as often.  The migraine headaches were decreasing significantly. I started feeling more energetic and my sleep improved. The depression was decreasing and there were days that I could see the light and did not feel like I was in a black hole.  Within the next 3 months, my life had completely changed, I was able to sustain a normal life. I went back to work, my depression had lifted, I was feeling at my best physically and I had dropped all my medications.

I have been enjoying great health ever since two years ago and any time that I have had a slight return of my symptoms all I had to do was to take a dose of my remedy! Homeopathy is a great gift to humanity.

"I was a miserable person..." —Jacob P.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I've been going to Dahlia since September and I have seen nothing but improvement in my life: my attitude, health, and self consciousness. Before this, I was a miserable person. At first, I never wanted to go to these sessions.

But after I started to give it a chance I became a better person. I used to get bad grades like D's and C's now I get straight A's.

"Rounds of doctors and dozens of tests over the years..."—Tammy L.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I HAD I.B.S., as in I'm not going to get this again, thanks to you.  I unfortunately waited to see you until I went through rounds of doctors and dozens of tests over the years. Homeopathy should not be considered as the last resort because everything else has failed.  It should be the first stop we make.

There are numerous homeopathic doctors but you understand the science of homeopathic remedies. The all-natural remedies had no side effects, like drugs can have and it worked.

There was no guess work when it come down to which remedy would work best, you nailed it on the first attempt and I was feeling better in days, feeling great in a couple of weeks, and healed in a couple of months.

I believe God has given us the ability to heal all of our illnesses through plant, mineral and animal and your knowledge of homeopathy makes that science real.  Thank you for your help in giving me my healthy life back.

Thank you,
Tammy L.

"Totally overwhelmed with the stresses of an executive position..." —Becky B.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

Dear Dahlia,

I can't thank you enough for the tremendous impact that homeopathic remedies have had on my life. When I came to you, I was weak and had a feeling of being totally overwhelmed with the stresses of an executive position that required more than I felt I was able to provide. Through your care and homeopathic remedies, I am now able to cope and actually progress in the very stressful environment of the corporate world. 

Thank you so much for all of your help and commitment to quality patient care. I look forward to continued healing and growth. I would highly recommend you and the homeopathic treatments to anyone that has experienced the frustration of conventional medicine. Finally, there seems to be an answer for those who are looking for more than just conventional medicine. 

With sincere gratitude,
Becky B.

"A role model and teacher..." —Massie

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

Dear Dahlia,

It was really nice seeing you this weekend, and I'm glad to see you doing so well. As you know I'm going to be finishing my 3rd year at HASC and I can't believe that graduation is already here. I was thinking back to how I got into homeopathy in the first place, and one of the major influences of me getting into this wonderful field was meeting you.  I first came to you because of my "allergies" and what a life changing experience that was.  You are a big role model for me, as a homeopath and also as a teacher; and I wanted to thank you for adding to my knowledge and experience as I've gone through my initial step of entering the homeopathic world.

I hope to see you at graduation,
Massie

"My son had eczema all over his body..." —Dora J.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I brought my son to Dahlia at the age of two.  He had a lot of trouble with eczema. His eczema started when he was four months old. We had tried everything, from having him on a very strict diet to lots of different vitamins and supplements and different doctors, but nothing seemed to work.

I came to Dahlia with the recommendation of a neighbor who had brought her kids for respiratory and behavioral issues. She had given me the information a while back, however, I did not know anything about Homeopathy. Also all these powerful drugs had not helped him. The eczema was spreading to his whole body. I did not trust that Homeopathy could do anything.  

Finally out of desperation, I came to her.  It was pretty amazing from the beginning. She has a way with children. My son Allen felt completely comfortable and started talking to her very easily. It was a long session, but painless. She just talked with us — no poking and no pain. My son loved that! Anyhow, she sent us these little pellets that I gave him in a state of disbelief!  

The first thing my husband and I noticed was that he was not itching as much and his sleep became better. In fact within one week of him taking the remedy, he could sleep til the morning and itching had reduced by about 50%. I could not believe it! When we went to see her about four weeks later, my son’s eczema had improved about 50%. Itching had improved almost about 75%. And his sleep had become better. Also his skin seemed less dry! However there was a bonus. He had been so much happier. He used to wake up in the morning in an unhappy mood, and he always started the day crying. No more — that was history.  

We were really surprised, we continued with her for another 6 months, and the eczema completely cleared out. At this point, my son is living a very comfortable life with no food restrictions and absolutely no medications!  On the recommendation of Dr. Dahlia we see her once every four months and she has managed to keep my son in the best health possible.

We could not be happier with the results.  I strongly recommend Dr. Dahlia to parents who are concerned about the optimum health for their children and do not like the side effects of [pharmaceutical] drugs which do not heal — but mask — the disease.

"I was diagnosed at age 20..." —Kevin B.

The following is a verbatim testimonial from an actual client. It has only been edited for typographical and grammatical errors.

I was diagnosed with lichen planus at the age of 20. I have gone through a journey of many many doctors with no avail! When I came to see Dr. Dahlia, it had covered my arms, my back and my private areas. It was very uncomfortable (the itching and the scabs)...the whole process. From the time that these eruptions started, they were irritating and disrupted my everyday life.

I just could not believe that there could not be a treatment for this condition. I found Dr. Dahlia on the Internet and decided to go see her. The eruptions stopped from the first month of seeing her. The itching completely went away in the same month. 5 months later, I am almost clear from the eruptions; the ones that I had are almost non-existent. She told me from the beginning that I would notice a general sense of well-being together with the improvement of the lesions, and that is exactly what happened. All my life I have been so hyperactive that concentration was a very difficult thing for me. I was always on the move. I do not remember having watched a movie from beginning to end.

I have been much calmer and at peace. My concentration has been amazing, which makes my productivity so much better. All and all it has been a life changing experience!
