I was diagnosed with Lupus. I was experiencing severe pain, swelling, stiffness, and weakness all over my body. The energy level was very low. I felt miserable all the time. My job was beginning to suffer as well.

After I met Dr. Healy all symptoms above greatly reduced. Energy level greatly improved shortly after my first visit, and my quality of life and pain gets better with each visit. Dr. Healy had made such a difference in my quality of life. I am totally satisfied.

My quality of life has gotten so much better that I now enjoy all social events and family time. My professional life has also got better. Thank you, Dr. Gene, for saving me!

I came to see Dr. Healy for high blood sugar, tight muscles in the upper back due to stress, lower back pain, a pinched nerve in the neck, and digestion and vitality issues.

My blood sugar has stabilized within the normal range with the use of Chinese herbs. Also with the herbal formulations, my digestion and vitality have improved dramatically. My back and nerve pinch were relieved with acupuncture.

I am completely satisfied with the care that I receive from Dr. Healy and would refer friends and family to him with absolute confidence.

Type Type 2 diabetes, back pain, neck pain, & digestive issues

I had left shoulder pain and tension. Also, I had digestive issues.

As those are long-term issues, I’ve noticed subtle and gradual changes in indigestion. I also have noticed gradually increased range of motion in the shoulder, where there is reduced pain.

I am very happy to have Gene as part of my health care team.

Digestive problems & shoulder pain

The top of my foot was purple after I broke my ankle. It was sore and purple for 3 years and I finally decided to do something about it. He also helped me with my acid reflux and menstrual cramps.

After one treatment the purple color faded away a little and the pain was way less. After 3 treatments the color of my foot became normal and I was PAIN-FREE! My acid reflux and menstrual cramps are also GONE!

I’m very satisfied with Dr. Healy. He is very gentle and listens carefully. He has helped me with so much and I’m very thankful.

Menstrual disorders, acid reflux, & ankle pain

came to see Dr. Healy due to low energy, knee pain and I wanted to lose weight permanently.

After treatments and detox, I got off sugar. No, too low, cravings. High energy and no knee pain. I feel more like exercising to continue my quality of life. I lost 11 pounds in the two weeks of doing the detox.

I am very happy with Dr. Healy. I have been treated by many holistic doctors and doctors of oriental medicine. Dr. Healy is, by far, the best I have seen.

Weight loss

I had a hand, knee, ankle, and foot pain. Also, I had stress and anxiety.

My pain is gone for the most part. I am able to handle stress better and the anxiety has disappeared.

Dr. Healy has done an outstanding job! He is a caring, gentle, and great listener. He really wants to work with you to improve the quality of your life!

I came to see Dr. Healy for disc injury, hyperthyroidism, and a nodule on my thyroid.

My pain level was 8.5 out of 10 and now it is down to 0. Also, after the use of Chinese herbs, my nodule is gone and my blood levels concerning my thyroid are all normal.

I met Dr. Healy at a Rotary Club meeting and decided that I needed to take control of my "pre-diabetes" situation... because I didn't want to get diabetes. So, I worked with Dr. Healy for 6 weeks to detox my body. Since I have never done this type of thing in my 65 years, it was difficult at times. However, I stuck with it and had some surprising results. 1. I dropped my glucose number and my A1C number to be "out" of the "pre-diabetes" situation (which is what I hoped to do) and 2. I also lost 13 pounds of FAT and dropped 2 pants sizes. (I had NO IDEA that this would happen.) I've been on weight loss diets before and lost a lot of weight so, normally, the first 10 lbs would be "water weight" and I wouldn't lose inches. Having dropped TWO pants sizes was amazing and I've lost it mostly around my mid-section. Thank you, Dr. Healy and staff, for allowing me to take back control of my life and my health!read more

Coming to Root Wellness has been a life changer. Dr Healy and his entire staff, who are always welcoming and... accommodating, deserve an exceptional review. I have spent the last 20 years suffering from autoimmune disorders, chronic, debilitating pain and hormone imbalances. I've seen more doctors and specialists than I can count.If only I had found this incredible team of health care professionals before putting myself through rigorous treatments, medications and three spinal surgeries. I was that person who allowed my medical insurance to determine my treatments, only to discover my health continued to deteriorate.When I began to experience extreme muscle spasms and paralysis in my hands, it really frightened me. How would I function without the ability to use my hands? At this point, I was willing to try anything. I had my doubts that acupuncture or Chinese medicine would really make a difference, considering everything else I had tried but I was feeling desperate.Dr. Shylar was the first doctor I met. She impressed me with both her compassion and confidence. I always look forward to my acupuncture visits because she is gentle and kind. I leave feeling more relaxed with a dramatic decrease in pain.I was also surprised at how much my mental health had improved, probably because I felt so much better!Thanks to Dr. Shylar and a few weeks of consistency, I began to have faith that my nervous system would indeed change. I developed a new mindset, believing I could enjoy living inside this body that had been failing me.Dr. Healy is brilliant. He was thorough and attentive to address all of my health concerns. By ordering the right labs, he discovered the root causes and helped me understand why I was experiencing various symptoms.The Chinese herbs he gave me also improved all of my symptoms, including constipation, fatigue, incontinence and daily headaches. Dr Beverly was also helpful in her clear guidance through the detoxing process. She continued to educate me through the different stages in functional medicine and what to expect.It has been a blessing to have this entire team supporting me through my journey of healing. I am overjoyed to say that I am completely free from pain medications. I highly recommend all their effective treatments for an overall optimal health transformation!! I am forever grateful for the difference they have made in my quality of life!!read more

I was referred by my insurance carrier for severe pain following a lumber disc tear and am very glad that I followed... their referral. The staff is personable, knowledgeable and very friendly. The practitioner that treats me is Dr. Shyler Neveux. She is very gentle and explains the procedures clearly and completely before proceeding. I feel that she understands my pain and discomforts and truly wants me to improve. Dealing with this office is way better than most other medical offices, and they try to make you as comfortable as possible. As for the results of the treatments, I noticed a great deal of improvement after the very first treatment and continue to notice improvement after each session. Please give acupuncture at this office a try - it did wonders for my pain and I have no doubt that I will continue to improve and heal.read more

For some reason I started getting Tinnitus back in March. I went to see my doctor who had given me antibiotics to see... if that would help, as well as a referral to an ENT. The antibiotics unfortunately did nothing, so I went to the ENT. After a decent amount of testing, I was told that there was nothing that they could do as, "It was a very common problem, with no known solution". A few months after, maybe June/July my tinnitus got so bad I had many sleepless nights. I even tried a bunch of at home "solutions/remedies", from putting hydrogen peroxide in my ears to leaving the TV on at night to drown out the noise. Luckily, I mentioned this to a friend who referred me to Root. A couple weeks later, I finally called in. That same day I got an exam, as well as an initial treatment. After just 2 treatments, and with an herbal tea given to me, my tinnitus noticeably went down. After about a month or so, there were times that it went away COMPLETELY. I am still getting treatment, but the issue has significantly lessened and limited to just my left ear. I am still amazed at the results!!! Thank you so very much!!!read more

I had a wonderful experience working with the team at Root Healing and Acupuncture. I was having a strange heart... issue. Working with the team, we started with blood work and from there were able to determine a proper course of action. My blood work was all over with an excess of antibodies and inflammation. Using herbs and dietary restrictions we corrected the blood work, with weeks i was feeling significantly better and months later still feeling great. Heart issues are gone, inflammation and antibodies are down. This was a great experience and I can not thank Gene and his team enough. Aside from being healthier I've gained a good 40-60 yards on my golf swing. Absolutely incredible.read more

I really enjoyed my experience with Root Healing Wellness! For years, I have been dealing with a compromised gut and I... wasn't able to digest much plant matter at all. The Detox helped me isolate specific problem foods and really helped by stomach heal a lot - and therefore changed a lot of my energy levels and general wellness.read more

After several years of struggling with an auto immune disorder I had lost hope that I would feel better. My friends... told me about Root Healing and I decided that I would commit to the process. I did the cleanse and made a total life style change. The program and treatments changed my life. It was the first time that I felt improvement in several years. I feel so much gratitude for the help I received!read more

The results I have experienced thanks to Root Healing have been remarkable. For years I have been very disappointed... with the medical care I was receiving through Western Medicine so I decided to take the plunge and try something different. To my surprise the acupuncture, natural herbs and special diets for detox purposes have made a significant difference in my life. Thank you Root Healing for being so attentive, caring, understanding and paying attention to all the details.read more
