Just 21 and I had pain every day!

Dana V.

I suffered with severe headaches – every day for four years. At age 21 I didn’t think I should be in pain every day and that the pain should be so bad when it rained that I couldn’t even get out of bed. My upper back pain and the neck pain caused such headaches, I was incapacitated. I also had very bad knee pain to add to my misery.

Since coming to Natural Wellness Centre and receiving treatment, I’ve had very little pain and some days I have no pain at all. My worst days are still when it rains but other that, that, I am almost pain free.

No More Migraines and Feeling Great

Jeannie N.

I had suffered with migraines for 20 plus years and with lower back pain for several years. My migraines were terrible. On a scale from 1-10, they were a 15 at times. They would keep me from doing things and going places. My lower back pain had the same effect on my life.

In July of 2004, I finally decided that I couldn’t be in pain anymore. Since I started going to Natural Wellness Centre, I have become migraine free. And my lower back pain has improved also. Being free of migraines is a wonderful feeling.

The doctor found that I had arthritis in my lower back that was responsible for the back pain. I’m not always pain free but he has shown me how I can relieve the pain with exercises that he has given me. I wish I’d gone to FSC a long time ago.

I had always heard that a chiropractor could help you if you had migraines but didn’t believe that until I tried chiropractic care. I owe a big THANK YOU to my chiropractor and his staff for all that has been done for me. I no longer have migraines and feel great!

Relief from Headaches and Neck Stiffness . . .


“On a Sunday bicycle ride, I took a spill of my bike. My neck received a jolt leaving me with headaches and tightness going up the back of my neck. Tylenol did not help. I saw my family physician and was referred to Natural Wellness Centre. After the doctor did my first adjustment I felt a tremendous relief from my headaches.

After just weeks of adjustments and physical therapy, my symptoms eased and then disappeared.. I have felt fine since finishing my treatment. I so appreciate what the doctor at Natural Wellness Centre did to improve my health! The staff at Natural Wellness Centre is wonderful. They make you feel welcome the moment you enter the office.

I would most certainly recommend Natural Wellness Centre to family and friends.”

I Have a New Life. . .


I have had neck pain and headaches for 5 years. Back in high school it was maybe one time per week but soon the headaches were everyday. In my mind it was something I just had to live with. About two years ago I saw a chiropractor who gave me one adjustment and told me it was all he could do. Then, he confirmed my belief that I would just have to live with the pain. There were so many times I missed classes, weekends that I missed out on dates, time spent with friends and more due to the pain.

Eventually, I had a co-worker who nagged me for weeks to come see her chiropractor at Natural Wellness Centre. Finally, I gave in and came in to see the doctor at Natural Wellness Centre. During my first consultation meeting with him, I gave my history and expected to be told, “I can’t help you.” Instead, I got a very assured, “I’m positive you can be helped.” My excitement was so great I almost cried. We got started right away and in about a week I was sleeping very well and could work with a lot less pain. Religiously, I did the stretches that were prescribed and taught to me and also did my exercise regimen without fail. The doctor discussed nutrition needs with me and I began to go to the gym five times per week as well.

Fast forward a month… I am now practically pain free, feeling great and have lots of energy. I have a new life.

Chronic Headaches are Gone

Jenna H.

“Prior to beginning my treatment at Natural Wellness Centre, I experienced chronic headaches with accompanying neck and shoulder pain. These headaches had persisted for about a year before I finally started looking for a solution to end the pain and discomfort.

After just a few weeks of treatment, my headaches are nearly gone all of the time and I am feeling significantly less neck, shoulder and upper back pain.

Medication Didn’t Work But Chiropractic Did

Heidi K.

“Before coming to Natural Wellness Centre, I was having a dull ache between my shoulder blades, low back pain and headaches. The pain in my neck was just barely tolerable and the back pain was moderate. I was also having pain in my wrists and wasn’t able to sleep due to these problems. This all started approximately three (3) months ago and wasn’t getting any better with the use of anti-inflammatory medication. Any bending, reaching and lifting during the day just made it worse.

After following through with my treatment plan at Natural Wellness Centre, my pain is almost non-existent. My husband and children even notice the differences. The stretches I do are so helpful and fun that I don’t feel like I’m exercising.

Now I’m able to do so much more as I am not having headaches, aches and pains and I can actually sleep! Thank you Natural Wellness Centre!

Headaches Everyday for 3 or 4 Years

Lisa D.

“Before visiting Natural Wellness Centre, I had headaches nearly every day. I would come home from work, take some Advil and try to make it through the evening. My back was always tight feeling and I constantly had neck pain too. This had gone on for 3 or 4 years.

Now, I can count on one hand the number of headaches I’ve had since beginning my treatment visits. After my first visit, I did not have a headache for at least a week. It was wonderful! I felt so much better… like I was a real human being again. When I do have a headache, it’s not as severe nor does it last long. Usually, I can do my stretches and the headache will go away. For 3 or 4 years I had forgotten how it felt to feel good! I sure know good “good” feels now.

Thank you Natural Wellness Centre.

Severe Headaches . . .


“I suffered with severe headaches. The kind that makes you want to find a dark, quiet room and stay there. They had been so bad that, at times, I wanted to just sit down and cry.

The first time I got chiropractic treatment for my headaches, it was great! My headache was gone within a few minutes and I was able to function again.

Since that time, with regular visits, my headaches have all but disappeared with only the occasional one occurring. On occasion I also got lower back pain. I get what I call “a different and funny feeling,” in my lower back that tells me I need to start watching what I am doing and go get my spinal adjustment. I was taught stretches that help a lot with my back.

Chiropractic treatment makes a difference in my life because it keeps me moving so I can work; enjoy my grandchildren and my life.”

Headaches, Neck Pain and Shoulder Pain . . .


“I had never experienced chiropractic care until I started working for Natural Wellness Centre. I was a little skeptical at first about receiving care because I was afraid the manipulations were going to hurt.

Wow… was I wrong! I had been living with really bad headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain and some back pain. It was nothing for me to take a headache pill every day or at least every other day. I love to ride horses and work outdoors and my pain was so limiting that, many times, I was not able to do the things I wanted to do.

When I started at Natural Wellness Centre, Dr. Grilliot provided an examination, explained my condition and set up a treatment plan. From the examination, I found out I clenched my teeth. He told me I needed a temporal-mandibular joint splint and, also, that I would benefit from a special pillow that helps support my neck at night while sleeping.

I followed his advice and use both the TMJ splint and the pillow. My headaches, neck pain and upper back pain quickly resolved. I still get headaches and neck pain on occasion; but I usually know what triggered the pain and I follow through with a visit for chiropractic treatment. Maintaining my exercising regimen every day really helps me feel better.

I would recommend chiropractic care to everyone!”

Headaches and Leg Pain . . .


“I started working at Natural Wellness Centre with no idea of what chiropractic was all about. What I did notice, initially, was how thorough the doctors were with their examinations and how they explained to the patients what was wrong and what needed to be done to correct it.

Since then, I have seen patients come in with so much pain they could hardly walk and then, within a relatively short period of time, with treatment they started feeling much better.

Patients receive their treatment and learn how to stretch to not only relieve the pain; but, to correct their problems without the use of medication. I had headaches and leg pain for a number of years. I would take something for the pain; but, when the medication wore off, the pain was back. After my examination, the doctor explained what was causing the problem. He described how we could not just cover up the pain with medication; but, correct the problems to eliminate the pain.

Within a few weeks of treatment, which included stretching; I felt great! The doctors also give nutritional examinations and prescribe whole-food supplements. I have completed a program which is called a “Liver Purification/Weight Loss Program,” that helps cleanse your body of toxins that have built up over time from the foods we eat and the body’s natural metabolic processes. After completing that program, I lost over 16 pounds and felt great. I now take Catalyn which is a multi-vitamin, along with several other supplements on a daily basis. Even when I started having hot flashes, I was prescribed a combination of herbs and supplements and I cannot believe how well they have worked.

I believe anyone seeking a natural way to correct their health problems should seriously consider what Natural Wellness Centre has to offer.”

Headaches . . .


“I was introduced to chiropractic for the first time, when I was a young girl and my father was injured at work. Dr. Rudd was a practicing chiropractic physician in my hometown of 2000 people. At the time, I wasn’t exactly sure what was being done; but, I knew that my father recovered quickly.

Later, while working at the hospital, I saw a variety of people treated mostly with medications that often times seemed to cover up their symptoms rather than cure their problems. I didn’t really learn what chiropractic was all about and what it could do for a person until my husband furthered his education by going through Chiropractic College and beginning his practice. I learned that chiropractic physicians not only want to help people feel better but, also, to help people get rid of whatever is causing the problem in the first place.

Personally, I had experienced headaches associated with my menstrual cycle for almost 30 years. Most of the time, I could not even keep them in check by utilizing various medications. When I did really load up on the medications, I felt like a zombie. Upon first beginning chiropractic treatment, the process seemed slow. However, I soon realized that due to the severity of the problem and the length of time I’d had the headaches, corrective changes would take time.

Through time and repetition, the headaches eventually reduced and I rarely get them anymore. Over time, we also realized the importance of proper nutrition as an avenue in helping with the clinical aspect of a person’s treatment protocol. I personally have benefited immensely from the “Liver Purification Program,” and I now take my supplements daily. My food cravings have decreased and my energy level has gone up. It takes effort to monitor our diet, stretch and take my supplements daily – but, I have certainly learned, that my health is worth it!”
