Naturopathy for Children

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.

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.

Not long after I had become a patient of Dr. Perkins, I was diagnosed with Chiari Type I Malformation, an abnormality of the brain at the junction of the skull and the spine. More tests revealed that while most of my symptoms were attributable to Chiari malformation, I also had cervical spinal stenosis that was considerably more severe. After conferring with the neurosurgeon regarding treatment options, I also discussed this frightening new development with Dr. Perkins who was compassionate and extremely helpful. I decided to go ahead with cervical laminectomy with fusion, meaning that the area was decompressed and titanium rods and screws were inserted from C2-C6. The surgery was considered successful and I experienced some headache relief and significant relief from the pressure in my head almost immediately. However, because it did not address the Chiari malformation, I still had recurring headaches, body pain, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. After an extensive recovery, I returned to Dr. Perkins not knowing if he could even help me anymore.

Over time, Dr. Perkins found ways to improve my condition despite having hardware in my neck, including Matrix Repatterning. While I can’t begin to explain the technique, I can testify to its efficacy. Dr. Perkins could no longer adjust my neck due to the rods and screws, yet the area still needed healing. Matrix Repatterning allowed him to work on my neck and head using only slight pressure. Because of widespread pain and fatigue due to fibromyalgia, he also conducted a full body assessment and was able to correct other areas of past injury as well. While the treatment is typically painless for the patient, I found it quite painful. Dr. Perkins was able to develop a way to continue the treatment without causing me pain by using a surrogate. Over time I have been able to tolerate the treatments without the use of a surrogate and find it extremely beneficial. In my case, he has used Matrix to significantly help treat headaches, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, shoulder pain, leg pain, digestive issues and TMJ.

Virtually all of my family members and many friends have become patients of Dr. Perkins. Some have had Matrix Repatterning treatments with great success. One in particular is my son who, at age 12, suffered a head injury while sledding. We brought him straight to Dr. Perkins who found him to show signs of concussion (eyes not able to track, dizziness, nausea, headache, seemed to be in a daze). After one Matrix treatment, my son was immediately improved, his eyes were able to track, the dizziness and nausea subsided and he was more present. By the next day, he was fully recovered. It was truly amazing.

If you’re reading this testimonial, you are probably already considering alternative healing techniques and are most likely dissatisfied with traditional medicine. My experience with Dr. Perkins and all of his many healing modalities have proven to be the right choice for me and my family.

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.

Dr. Perkins is wonderful with our whole family. My children not only enjoy their visits, they beg to go, because they know they’ll feel better after their visit. He is persistent in solving our health complaints, and takes the time to explain things to me. I would highly recommend Dr. Perkins, as my daughter says, “He is a wonderful kind doctor who makes me feel a lot better”.
