Proven Remedies And Treatments
Hi Dr. Perkins,
Just wanted to let you know – a lot of people from our church and family have been following Rick’s progress since his accident on July 6, 2013. Together we have credited you, Dr. Perkins for much of his quick improvement and recovery. I wanted to share with you a recent Facebook post from the day after our last visit. We thank God for having you in our lives and we testify and promote you and your God given skills and efforts as often as we can. Here is the post:
“Rick has transitioned from his ibuprofen and acetaminophen to a longer acting, but better for him, pain reliever, Aleve. According to his Alternative Health doctor, the ibuprofen and acetaminophen restrict the blood flow to the areas that need healing, which in effect stop the healing process. Apparently the naproxen does not restrict the blood flow and allows the healing process to continue while relieving pain. There also is a muscle relaxing effect from the naproxen. It’s a big transition from 21 pills a day to just 3, but he’s been able to tolerate the transition and even notice an improvement, although there are times of greater pain. He feels good to know that the healing is on a continuing basis, rather than being stopped by the pain relievers he hoped were helping him. It feels good to be on a better path and he is so pleased he has Dr. Perkins, a God loving man, in charge of his recovery.
In addition there are other things Dr. Perkins has been able to do that has reduced his pain and is speeding up his healing recovery and comfort level during daily activity. He says “thank you God” for leading him to Dr. Perkins more than a decade ago. Rick and I both agree that God has been preparing him for this accident for a long time.
Dr. Perkins has been essential in this, as he has helped Rick get his body in tip top condition through his unique chiropractic skills, and a process called Matrix Repatterning that is unlike anything available thru modern medicine. If you haven’t heard of this, you should check it out. It can help you too! There is a story behind the fact that Rick and I brought and introduced Matrix Repatterning to Dr. Perkins, that we would be happy to share with anyone who would be interested. We are convinced that it is God given.” End of Facebook post
We thank you again, Dr. Perkins for all you’ve done and look forward to our continued relationship

Last time I was in the office, I was so happy to be feeling better. Dr. Perkins asked if I wouldn’t mind writing a short account of how my foot healed after a bad break and surgery, from which I could not regain my health. I went home and reflected, realizing there is no such thing like a short story about Dr. Perkins and me!
My family, friends and I go to his office for over 15 years! Dr. Perkins has helped everybody. But, even if I concentrate on my own experience, the story will be a long one! It started in 1997, when I had migraines twice a week.
My regular doctor was giving me strong pain killers. I did not know what had a worse effect on me – the migraines or the medication. I was not able to drive, work or function. I scared my co-workers with the look on my face. I was vomiting regularly, could not work on the computer, and my life was miserable!
I worked the night shift at GM, so I was able to get in with Dr. Perkins during office hours. He started with an x-ray of my spine, and had a lot of questions about my past injuries. After that, he told me that I needed to have my spine and jaw adjusted. He explained that I also had a problem with parasites. He took the time to explain every detail of the adjustments and treatment to clear me of parasites. It took about a year to fix my spine, to clean my body from parasites and to straighten out my jaw. In doing so, he eliminated, one by one, the causes of my migraines! From that time, I sometimes have had a headache, but never a migraine!
About nine years ago, I decided to quit smoking. We had a really tight budget, because my husband and I had lost our jobs. I could not afford the patches to help with the quitting. I decided to smoke less every day. I asked Dr. Perkins for help, and guess what? He gave me a “body cleaner” (a nicotine antidote), and after about two weeks, I was able to go a full day without smoking even one cigarette. I have no cigarette in my mouth ever, and never will!
Seven years ago, I was going through a difficult menopause. I went to Dr. Perkins to asked for help. When I hear ladies complaining about this miserable change in life, I feel sorry for them. I did not have to suffer the severe symptoms I had been living with.
Almost three years ago, I had an accident and broke my heel bone into pieces. I had surgery and an excellent doctor put in a steel plate keep my bone in one piece. Because I was using crutches my spine was off, every other week. I was going to Dr. Perkins for adjustments. He was impressed with the job my orthopedic doctor had done, but my surgical wound would not heal. For three months I was fighting with my own body to heal thet little opening. I asked Dr. Perkins for help. He recommend some natural medications to fight infection, but after seeing no results he tested me again, and suggested that I may be allergic to the metal plate. I wend back to my orthopedic doctor and asked for some allergy tests to see if Dr. Perkins was right. Even though the doctor thought it was nearly impossible, he sent me for the testing. Well, … he was wrong. I found that I have an allergy to nickel!
After several more weeks to allow for the bone healing process, my orthopedic doctor scheduled me for another surgery and removed the steel plate, which is not normally done. After that, things finally healed completely, so fast! This time my wound healed in two weeks, and after some time was almost invisible! I was lucky to have a good surgeon, but so very lucky to also have Dr. Perkins!
After my foot was healed, I would still feel pressure and pain when the weather changed. It had been over two years since my accident. I asked Dr. Perkins for help, and again he had the answer: Matrix Repatterning! I came just 3 times for him to work on my foot. This time, the treatment was different than anything he had done before. He released the energy that was trapped in the bone from my injury and surgeries. I don’t know how this works, but it works! My foot doesn’t hurt any more. I can walk in high heels and I can even dance!
I wrote this story for you, if you are a person who seeks help. This is a true statement that I am telling to show you that there is help for you. I trust Dr. Perkins with everything, and have never been disappointed. If only one person who reads this will go to Dr. Perkins and get help, sharing my story will be a great success. God Bless!
Thank you Dr. Perkins for being in our lives.

I was suffering from a whiplash injury I got in an auto accident and my neck was completely immobile and locked. Although I was only in this condition for a week, previous accidents caused weakness in the neck area. Past treatments with chiropractic care benefited me. However, muscle testing was not incorporated, and for that reason, I never felt the treatments were designed for me. I was being treated generically.
The chiropractic treatments I received from Dr. Perkins have been completely thorough and specifically prescribed for my body. I am feeling recovered from weakness and immobility of my neck. I feel much stronger and better with my neck rotation. I am so relieved to be under Dr. Perkins care.
I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to elect Dr. Perkins as my primary health care provider and wellness contributor in my life.
Thank you Dr. Perkins for sharing your gift with me.
A poster on a wall of Dr. Perkins’ old office in Farmington Hills showed a woman, bent over and walking with a cane. Next to that, was one of a man with a golf club slung over this shoulder. He was the picture of health. The woman’s picture was titled “Without Chiropractic”, the man’s picture was titled “With Chiropractic”. Those pictures made a strong impression on me 21 years ago. I regularly visit Alternative Health Solutions for chiropractic care, to maintain a healthy body and active lifestyle. I can attest to the fact that regular chiropractic care has helped me to have a strong, healthy and active life.
I can’t seem to find the right words to express how grateful I am to Dr. Perkins for taking care of my health in ways that traditional doctors were unable to. My medical history is a strange one: I’ve had a bone die in my foot that had since grown back, but the shadow of the injury remained. I had mononucleosis when I was 12 years old that continued to leave a mark on my adult spleen, making me constantly ill. My hips and pelvis would fall apart in ways that would be humorous if it were not so incredibly painful.
But, regardless of the injury, no matter where I was on the globe, Dr. Perkins and his staff have bent over backwards to help me. After years of regularly needing chiropractic care and matrix repatterning, I am happy to report that my body is finally holding itself together, all by itself. That is quite a statement considering the workload I put my body through as a dancer. Without my Alternative Health Solutions family, I would not be the happy and healthy person I am today. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
I was in my early 50’s and newly diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (a degenerative heart condition) and congestive heart failure. My cardiologist was about to place me on the heart transplant list, when I first met Dr. Perkins. At that time, my ejection fraction was 20% and I was so weak that I spent most of my time resting on the couch. Dr. Perkins told me that the heart is a muscle, and with proper support, and can heal and rebuild itself. I was skeptical and went to my cardiologist for a second opinion.
When the cardiologist said nutritional therapy would not hurt me, but it would not help me either, I decided to give Dr. Perkins the opportunity to treat me. Within 3 weeks under his care, I realized that I was no longer resting all day.
It has now been 11 years since I was first treated by Dr. Perkins. My ejection fraction is 60%+. The doctor of internal medicine gave me permission to wean myself off the heart medications.
Along the way, through naturopathy and chiropractic, Dr. Perkins has also helped me to overcome fibromyalgia, migraines, adrenal deficiency and onset of diabetes.
Currently, I am very physically active, exercise, ride my bicycle, and keep up with my seven grandchildren. I am so much more healthy than I was 10 years ago.
Thank you, Dr. Perkins.
I remember the first time I saw you like it was yesterday. It was early 1997 and I was pregnant with my second child. I had been very sick with sinus infection type symptoms for quite a while. I had seen an M.D. several times and was given an antibiotic each time, which had its own repercussions. I wasn’t getting any better and the symptoms kept recurring.
My best friend, now my husband had been seeing you for years. He told me about you and the things you do. To be perfectly honest, it all sounded a little hokey, but I was deperate to feel better, so I made an appointment with you. Thank God I did, because you got to the root of what was really going on just by digging deeper and asking questions. Then you asked what had I been doing prior to getting sick, and with that one simple question, it all made sense.
I had been painting indoors using oil based paint, with no ventilation or breathing mask. I had chemical poisoning from breathing in the fumes and that is what caused the sinus infection type symptoms. You gave me some natural pills to take for 3 days and told me I would probably feel worse for those 3 days, but that on the 4th day, I would feel better, and I did! The symptoms never returned.
Needless to say, after that I was a believer. Since then you have treated me for conditions literally from head to toe: TMJ, skin issues, hand and elbow issues, spinal issues, bladder issues and more, all with great success.
I now work with M.D.’s and still schedule appointments to see you before seeing them. I don’t have anything against them. I would just rather get well the natural way, and I believe your practices and treatments to be nothing short of a miracle.
I can’t finish without commending your staff for always being accommodating when I needed it, no matter what. Thank you for all your years of service.

After a serious car accident almost 20 years ago, I was told by two medical doctors that I would need shoulder and back surgery so that I might be able to play golf and bowl again, among other things.
I have been seeing Dr. Perkins for almost 20 years, have never had any surgery, and play golf 3 days a week now, with only bi-monthly adjustments.
I have referred my entire immediate family and a dozen others, all with similar success for their problems.
Approximately 5 years ago my back was paining me so badly that I couldn’t sit, stand, or barely walk. My two daughters brought me to Dr. Perkins’s office at my request. After the exam where he passed his hands over my left foot and asked if I had hurt it recently. I said “Yes, when I had fallen trying to sit down on a chair that was not there.” He manipulated the tendons in my foot. In 3 minutes everything was well. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated his knowledge and expertise. My entire family now sees this great doctor. He does what a doctor is supposed to do and that is to HEAL his patients!
After having three other Chiropractors I was introduced to Dr. Jim Perkins. I finally met a doctor that not only gave me relief but took the time to discuss and try alternative methods in helping my situation. My situation is an ongoing problem resulting from injuries when I was younger, and Dr. Perkins continues to help me.

When I first came to the office, I had just generally felt very ill and sad. Dr. Perkins discovered a spinal cord inflammation that no one else had uncovered. He has also been amazing at diagnosing some hidden infections caused by allergies, upset and inflammation. Over time, these things have healed. I’m so happy and relieved to have been brought here by a friend. Coming here is a commitment to your health and your life.

I came with neck, back and hip problems. I had been to many doctors with no relief. Dr. Perkins worked with my neck – now I can hold and read a book and turn my head freely!
Dr. Perkins worked on my hip and now I am able to turn, twist, walk and do activities that I haven’t done for years! I feel “light” and have more energy than I have ever had. I am very happy that I found out about Dr. Perkins.
I had a stiffness in my neck for three years, could turn my neck only with much difficulty. After visiting Dr. Perkins he manipulated my neck and cured me. My neck ache has not come back yet and this was two years ago.

Dear. Dr. Perkins,
In the past 2 years, I’ve been taking both my mom and dad to quite a few doctor appointments. Most of these appointments have been with specialists. Retina, Glaucoma, Cardiologist, Cancer Specialist and Heart Surgeon. All of these professionals, although very good in their field, were terrible with the doctor/patient interaction. First of all they would not talk loud enough or slow enough so that my parents were able to understand everything they said. They didn’t attempt, unless requested by me, to make it more understandable for any of us. And the worst thing of all, they always directed their statements to my brother and me when mom and/or dad would be sitting in the same room. I had been so fed up and so disgusted with the whole medical profession, and then we came to you.
It was such a major thing for my dad to agree to come to see you. I’ve always told him all along how much you’ve helped me. That was all well and good, but he didn’t want any part of it. When his back kept getting worse and he was getting scared about what it might be, he knew that he would have to go to a doctor sooner or later. If he’d gone to his M.D. he would have ended up in the hospital with all kinds of tests. And also ended up with yet another medication. I explained to him in great detail how you would go about testing him to find out what the problem was. He agreed to go as long as he didn’t have to get down on the table or get adjusted. He was afraid of both of those things.
Here’s a man who is a World War II Veteran, who spent 3 1/2 years in a Japanese prison camp, and he was afraid of getting adjusted because of all the chiropractic horror stories he’d heard throughout his life. Dr. Perkins, you deserve the medal of honor for your professionalism, your compassion and for the skill and enthusiasm you share with each of your patients, in this case, my father.
You spoke in a clear, calm, loud voice, which my father was able to understand perfectly. You spoke right to him, looking him directly in the eyes, which by doing so was treating him with the dignity he deserves. Because you took the time to explain everything completely and simply, you were able to relax him to the point of getting him through the two things he feared; lying down on the table and having and adjustment. He came back for his second appointment yesterday and had yet another adjustment. His back pain is going away and he doesn’t shuffle his feet anymore when he walks. After the second appointment he had a big smile on his face. You could tell that he was relieved that he didn’t have anything seriously wrong with him and that he wouldn’t have to go through all those hospital tests.
I had no doubt that you would be able to help him. My doubts were in my dad as to whether or not he would trust you enough to let you do anything for him. He said on our way home that he never had any faith in chiropractics before, but he trusted Dr. Perkins and was glad he’d gone to see him.
You are so healthy in mind, body and spirit. I admire you for the person you are and for the work that you do. I thank you for treating my 84 year old father with compassion, the dignity and the respect that he and every other senior citizen has earned and deserves. Thank you and God bless you!
I grew up with headaches. Although my own dad went to a chiropractor, my folks never equated something wrong in the neck area, could cause a headache. So I grew up suffering not only from headaches, but also frequent and severe nosebleeds. I couldn’t play tag or be athletic, as that would bring on an excruciating “tension” headache, as the doctor’s called it (and sometimes a nosebleed). The nosebleeds were as often as once a week – seemingly brought on by nothing at all.
Our family medical doctor suggested my parents rub my neck, which only made my headaches worse and gave me nausea. I would walk around like a zombie all day, afraid to move which brought on the throbbing pain and a queezy stomach. If I only had it once in a month, that was a good month. Often I would wake up in the morning with a splitting headache for no apparent reason. Aspirin didn’t help. I would suffer until I was able to take a long nap after school, or bear up under the pain until bedtime. It took hours to fall asleep when the headaches were particularly bad. The only comfort I had, was that when I woke up the next morning, the headache would be gone. These headaches were a dark cloud that hung over me for almost 20 years. I know now that the kind of headache I suffered from is classified as a “classic migraine”, commonly called a “sick headache.”
My parents took me to the doctor for my nosebleeds, who would cauterize the inside of my nostrils with silver nitrate. This was very painful, and never helped the nosebleeds to stop. I had this done several times when I was between 7 and 12 years of age.
When I was in my early 20’s, the headaches began to worsen, and sometimes lasted 2 days. My boyfriend Jim introduced me to his chiropractor, Dr. Gizynski. I eagerly made an appointment with him, and my exam revealed that I had a subluxation of my atlas vertebrae (at the top of the neck), a whiplash injury. I had never been in a car accident, but the rough and tumble of my early childhood was no doubt the cause. Once I began treatment, the headaches began to subside and I had no more nosebleeds. As a young woman, I also experienced frequent painful bladder infections, which also became history.
Since my boyfriend had also been a “chiropractic miracle”, cured from injuries he suffered while working his way through college, he decided to pursue a doctorate in Chiropractic. I ended up marrying my boyfriend, who four years later, earned the title Dr. James Perkins, D.C. It took years of regular chiropractic care before I was headache free. But eventually, it happened! Now I’m in my 50’s, I’ve been adjusted when necessary for 30 years. We’ve raised our children up in the best of health, thanks to the doctor’s knowledge and skill as a chiropractor and naturopath.
It’s easy to forget what a big part of my life those headaches were. But I am often reminded, and feel sad, even angry when I meet others who suffer needlessly like I did. I cannot describe my gratification in seeing others (especially children), receive relief through chiropractic care, that I went without for years of my life. I thank God always, that I was spared an adulthood of debilitating pain, through the miracle of chiropractic.

I used to see a chiropractor for my low back pain. I saw him regularly and he always adjusted my low back area. It would feel better for a short period of time, but always hurt again within a few days. I finally came to see Dr. Perkins.
Through his method of testing, Contact Reflex Analysis, he found that my neck needed adjusting. He explained that my neck and low back work together as a team and compensate for one another, and that if he adjusted my neck, my low back would eventually release.
After a few visits, receiving chiropractic adjustments for my neck, my low back pain went completely away. It’s been 4 years since my first visit to Alternative Health Solutions, and I’m enjoying life without low back pain.
I met Dr. Perkins at a local lecture on alternative and complementary health care. I am so grateful we met.
I was injured in a serious auto accident in 2000, and suffered from severe headaches, hip discomfort and pain that radiated down my neck, shoulders and arms to the tips of my fingers. I also had tremendous pressure in my ribcage that inhibited my breathing.
I started as a new patient in December, 2003. Dr. Perkins was able to locate and correct injured areas of my spine through Chiropractic. He also used Matrix Repatterning to treat soft tissue injuries around and within my ribcage, along with cranial misalignments which were also a result of the accident. These issues were not addressed medically for three years following the accident.
I have found few chiropractors that apply such varied corrective modalities as Dr. Perkins. My body is very receptive to the subtle, exquisite and highly effective movements used with Matrix Repatterning. Realizing the importance of non-restrictive motion of the body, it is liberating to be set back on track in my healing journey to full functional recovery.
I am also a practitioner of a Native Indian modality and as well as a professional masseuse, working with the body’s communication and promoting stress reduction. I refer my clients and friends to Dr. Perkins to unlock what massage is unable to free up in my clients.
Dr. Perkins is one in a million who has the ability and capacity to correct structural situations. My mom is 99 years old, and he miraculously put her out of pain from more than one accident. I recommend him highly to anyone for superior care and beneficial end results. He has the best personality too.
