Proven Remedies And Treatments
My husband and I became patients of Dr. Perkins in the mid-1990s. We believe in the alternative health way of life. He has cured us from sinus issues, pneumonia, and back, hip and neck issues with gentle means of care. One time our son sprained his ankle in basketball. He had to be carried into the office, as he could not walk on it, but after Dr. Perkins’ adjustment, our son was able to walk out of the office and go to basketball practice 4 days later. Amazing!
Dr. Perkins also introduced me to Thermascan (infra-red thermal imaging), instead of mammograms. When my husband passed away in August, 2010, Dr. Perkins helped keep my hurting body and health in line.
I thank God for Dr. Perkins’ continued “hand” in my life. Dr. Perkins is the best, and I would go to none other.
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.

At barely 21 years of age, (over 10 years ago), I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder of unknown origin. The symptoms were debilitating, and specialist after specialist offered nothing but shoulder shrugs and prescription drugs that were supposed to manage my symptoms. Instead, the symptoms grew worse and nothing was being done to address the root cause of the problem. Growing discouraged and depressed, a friend referred me to Dr. Perkins. I had never been to a chiropractor and I had heard my share of stories. But, at this point, I had nothing left to lose.
Upon meeting Dr. Perkins and his friendly staff, I felt immediately at ease, even optimistic! His bedside manner is professional, compassionate, and he is steeped in integrity. Through regular chiropractic adjustments, detoxification protocols and nutritional supplementation, my symptoms began to disappear and I began to feel whole again. I have even had bloodwork done several times, and there are no longer any markers for the disease that I was once told I would have to live with, for the rest of my life.
This experience was so inspiring to me, I transferred to Wayne State University (from Michigan State), and switched my degree to study Human Nutrition and Food Science. I was lucky enough to work with Dr. Perkins in my last year of school, and he inspired me more and more each day. I actually went on to marry a chiropractor and not a day goes by, that I do not think back to my time with Dr. Perkins, and consider the model that he created and continues to implement at Alternative Health Solutions.
As my husband and I build our practice, we often discuss Dr. Perkins. Be it his commitment to his patients, his brilliance with regards to innate health, or the fact that he truly saved my life, Dr. Perkins is a true healer and an inspiration. I only wish that I still lived close enough to be his patient.

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.
Dear Doctor Perkins,
It is with admiration that I thank you for the outstanding care you have provided me across the many, many years of our partnership in health. I greatly appreciate your gifts of healing and conversation. You have changed my life through your amazing talents, and I am forever grateful to you!
Please accept my challenge coin from my tenure as the National Commander of the USAF Auxilliary – Civil Air Patrol for your excellence and dedication to me. It is a small token of my personal appreciation to you.

Thank you to Dr. Perkins and your wonderful staff, for giving me my life back. After having to drop out of water aerobics because of intestinal problems, a dear friend suggested that her Dr. Perkins could help me. Indeed we could and did! After the good doctor tested me and prescribed GOOD supplements, he made suggestions on some changes in my eating routine. THANKS TO HIS DIRECTIONS AND ADVICE, I am back in water aerobics and once again, having a great retirement.

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 am the lucky mother of three grown children who enjoyed a healthy upbringing through natural health care,… that is without traditional medicine. Thanks to Dr. Perkins, we were able to avoid antibiotics, finger pricks, throat cultures, and injections. We were never the type to rush to the doctor at the first little sniffle. But, when it came time to see a doctor, the first place we went was Alternative Health Solutions. Dr. Perkins was able to pinpoint my kids problems through muscle testing. Whether it was strep, staff, virus, parasites, or allergies. For colds, skin rashes, sleeplessness, upset stomachs, and even ear and toothaches, we followed his recommendations. Instead of a cupboard full of prescription medicines, we had a cupboard full of natural, organic whole food supplements, and homeopathic remedies that really worked. Whether at home or traveling, we always knew what to keep on hand or bring along. Believe me when I say, this saved more than one family vacation from the thing that wrecks the best laid plans – sick kids! What peace of mind we had, compared to so many other families we’ve known while raising our kids.
One year we went to the Michigan State Fair and we put our kids on a water ride, which contained contaminated water. We realized this only too late, when we got their stinking shoes and socks off once home from the fair. Soon after, one of our sons developed a very bad skin rash on his arms and legs, and torso. Through muscle testing (Contact Reflex Analysis), Dr. Perkins determined that our son had been exposed to Staphylococcus (bacterial staff), and his skin was severely infected. He prescribed an oral nutritional supplement made by Standard Process, (organic nutritional supplements), which in time, cleared up the rash. I’ve always thought of the hundreds of children who were also exposed. I wonder if those kids were prescribed creams and salves which may not have addressed the staff infection, perhaps suffering for years, maybe still to this day.
Dr. Perkins has been there for us through everything from fevers and ear infections, to bug bites and soccer injuries. I can’t imagine what we would have done without having someone to put our kids back together, and treat our whole family in a safe, drug free manner that we’ve trusted for over 25 years. How fortunate we have been to have Dr. Perkins knowledge of natural healing.

My husband and I have six children. We started bringing them to Dr. Perkins when our regular doctors were pushing all the new vaccines like Hib, Hepatitis B, and now this supposed new vaccine for girls to stop cervical cancer. I feel Dr. Perkins has helped keep my family healthy without all the drugs that traditional medicine so easily gives our children, including antibiotics.
Don’t misunderstand, we need both types of doctors and medicine. It depends on the circumstances, but natural is best. There are so many side effects from drugs.
Dr. Perkins also helped my husband avoid surgery on his sinuses with natural remedies.
Thank you to Dr. Perkins and your helpful and friendly staff.
I have a remarkable story to tell about my experience with Alternative Health Solutions and Dr. Perkins. My son had a severe head injury and developed a bilateral subdural hematoma as a result. He had surgery to remove the blood from his head by a neuro-surgeon and recovered nicely, until one week later. He became unsteady, dizzy, foggy and forgetful, and was deteriorating with his cerebral function including bowel habits, etc.
I called Dr. Perkins who came and examined my son. He said his brain function appeared to be in a state of shock and malfunctioning. He prescribed supplements and nutritional enzymes for cerebral function and my son gradually recovered. Within one week he was perfectly normal in function and appearance.
To this day, there has been no recurrence or residual disease from this event. I am so grateful we have our son back.

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.

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.

About 10 months ago, my 11 year-old son was diagnosed with chronic inflammatory bowel disease. This illness can be very dangerous, debilitating and even life threatening. Dr. Perkins is an extremely gifted healer and has helped us manage this condition, so that my son has been able to have very few, mostly mild symptoms, and lead a relatively normal life for a boy his age. Unlike the traditional debilitating and invasive treatments for this type of condition, Dr. Perkins has employed methods that are directed at strengthening the body’s own natural defense and repair mechanisms.
There is still so much that we don’t know and understand about the physiology and individual biochemistry of each unique person, that I feel much safer having my son cared for by the gentle, specific and non-invasive methods used by Dr. Perkins, which don’t interfere with my son’s body’s own attempt to get and stay well and healthy. I am extremely and humbly grateful to the Providence that led us to Dr. Perkins and his wonderful staff at Alternative Health Solutions.
