Testimonials – Success Stories

Success by Symptoms

“In June of 2000 I was diagnosed with food allergies. In fact, I was allergic to all foods but 5 items (onions and sardines were part of the 6 I could have). The Doctor was recommending that we eliminate most of the foods for a period of time and then re-introduce them one at a time. I am not that patient.

Dr. Books had been working with me on other health related issues. Through June and July we worked trough the various foods to have my body accept them rather than reject them.

Well, almost three years later I must relate, I have had not one bout of diarrhea!!!!! It is incredible to me…not to have to be constantly running to the bathroom. As the CEO of a large company, consistently leaving the office by mid-afternoon for diarrhea is not a good idea.”

“As a mother of three dyslexics and a grandmother of five, I felt we had encountered just about as many challenges as one could endure. Each child had his own personality and degree of disability. We all felt we had pursued and survived as well as possible, until we were introduced to Dr. Phyllis Books.

Her unique philosophy, method, techniques and results were far beyond current approaches. She addressed the whole person, including eye tracking, reading, emotions, coordination and temperament, just to name a few.

Then to our devastation, early childhood sexual abuse was diagnosed for all three children. Again Dr. Books came to the rescue in releasing the trauma stored in the body, as trauma always is. “The body remembers what the mind forgets!”
She has brought betterment into our lives, to say the least. Three generations want to say, “Thank you, for being you!”

“Almost five years ago I went over the handlebars of my mountain bike landing myself in the hospital for four days. The medical doctors did every test imaginable (x-rays, CAT scans, MRI, MRA, EEG, and an angiogram) to find out why I had stroke like symptoms on the left side of my body. Not even the neurologist could figure out why I was passing in and out of consciousness. They even wanted to do exploratory surgery to which my roommate said, “Absolutely not!” I am so thankful that she was there. So, not being able to drive, read, spell, write, or come up with basic everyday words like shoes, food, or car, they released me from the hospital and told me that nothing was really wrong with me.

I spent the next month sleeping about 18 hours a day. I started seeing a chiropractor that also did cranial work. She helped me a little. I saw another chiropractor whose specialty was upper cervical. She helped me a lot with being able to stay awake, although I still couldn’t figure out what was going on in school.
It wasn’t until I saw Dr. Books that my recovery really started. Within a couple of weeks my memory started to improve. I could come up with everyday words on a more frequent basis. The reminder notes I would write myself began to make sense. After about a month or so I could read, spell and comprehend. Reading was fun again. I still remember the excitement I had when I read my first novel after the head injury. I was ecstatic.

Whether you have a head injury or not, Dr. Books will be able to get you to function at a higher mental level.
Thanks for everything.”
