“As a working mom of young boys I find that Dr Ali has kept us balanced. We began seeing her when our youngest was 6 weeks old. I was at my wits end after seeing multiple naturopaths regarding my digestive issues. I was looking for an answer to new issues within myself that arrived after my son was born. Three years later we look back and laugh now when I arrived for my first appointment with bottles and bottles of supplements I was given to alleviate my symptoms. Needless to say we were able to throw them out. Her monthly newsletters are a healthy reminder of how crucial it is to look after ourselves and our families. Our boys are excited to see Dr. Ali and whenever someone has a “sore ear” she fits us in immediately. She is our preventive medicine. In the 3 years we have been visiting her no one in our family has been on antibiotics.”
“I went to see Dr. Ali in attempts to control my migraines. I had suffered from migraines several times a month starting at age 12 and now I am pleased to say that I only get the odd one here and there and I have Dr. Ali to thank! She also helped get me through the aches and pains of two pregnancies. I love going to see Dr. Ali because when I’m there its like talking to a lifelong friend while also being treated with complete professionalism and genuine care. If I mention that my back hurts, even my 3 year old knows “time to see Dr. Ali!”
“My daughter ‘M’ began seeing Ali at 12 months old. She was not meeting some milestones, and after trying physiotherapy, occupational therapy, diet changes, doctors, etc, we were at a loss of what to do next. We decided to try visiting a chiropractor as a next step. After one visit, my daughter’s life was changed. Before chiro, M could not get in or out of a sitting position on her own; could not weight-bear on hands much, knees without crying, or feet at all; could only finger point with her left hand, and did not have pincer grasp in either hand. Each week M improved dramatically. We saw her get in and out of a sit, point with both hands, develop pincer grasps, CRAWL, and at 1 week shy of 14 months, put weight on her feet and finally stand with assistance. Eventually, M walked alone at almost 19 months. I truly believe that Ali, and her chiropractic work, has “kick-started” something in M and it has allowed her body to do what it needs to do – to receive the proper messages and signals from her brain/nerves and progress in her gross, and fine, motor skills. Now, M is a typically developing almost 2 year old, who runs, walks, talks, and plays with her peers. Our family is so blessed to have met Ali and have her work her magic on M. I would recommend chiropractics, and Ali in particular, to anyone who is thinking to just “try one more thing” and to not give up! That “last resort” may have been the only thing you needed! Thank you Ali for everything you’ve done for M!”
“How does one show gratitude, well in my case by sharing my story.
A few years back I was living a physical life so uncomfortable that Advil and Tylenol couldn’t soften the pain. The daily back pain was so persistent, eventually a CT scan showed degeneration of disks and a miss alignment of my spine. Fairly quickly, a once extremely high pain tolerance had been reduced to moments of tears and uncertainty. My future was in doubt. I began questioning my ability to work and survive a year let alone the next 40. I worked in a very physically demanding industry (which at the time provided the only source of income for our family) and completing simple duties had me feeling helpless and cornered. Not being able to play with my children when I got home had me feeling weak and disheartened. Any form of exercise was impossible and my body weight climbed to 265 leaving me emotionally and physically exhausted. Simply driving the tractor to cut the lawn…..
Desperate, I began adding different forms of over the counter meds (prescribed and none, separate and at times many together) to lighten my new burden and ease my minds collapsing walls.
Adversely to my hopes, I sank into the darkest cave I’ve ever retracted to in my life. My back was numb but my mind had taken a rapid turn for the worse. What a lonely state!! I kept my secret to myself and all those around me including my loved ones had no idea what I was considering. In my mind the only choice seemed almost simple and freeing with no regard for anyone including me.
My TSN turning point….
Chiropractor Dr Ali was suggested to me by a Community friend. My first moment of Dr Ali was in the vestibule at Mayfield Community Centre where she was bouncing from person to to person, filling everyone and the room with an unconditionally honest energy. An energy I NEEDED!! Before that moment, I had been in conversation with a friend regarding his own back issues and surgery as his resolution. I needed to converse with Dr Ali, find another option besides surgery and a life of drugs. That light at the end of the tunnel…. Was grey and casting some eerie shadows.
It’s taken Ali 2 years, I’ve lost almost 60 lbs, workout and run and have added healthy eating to my new lifestyle. I drive the tractor…. Pain free!! I’ve recently started a business, left a job (after 12 years) I had assumed was going to be my last. This mind is clear and fog free. My new and only pills are vitamins and the only memories of that proverbial cave is in my journal.
I owe Ali my life, literally!! But in payment for what she’s offered me (her chiropractic talent and love of healthy people) is to find a way to help heal others and offer that same level of unconditional energy and love of life that I almost left behind.
Her family, friends and this community is lucky to have her, her kindred spirit and skill.
I’m forever indebted to you Ali!!”
“I am glad we have found your care and I really think it is making a big difference for Jack. He loves seeing you and getting his adjustments.”
“My son has been a patient of Dr. Ali Miller for almost three years now. He began seeing Dr. Ali one year after being diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive Subtype. In grade 4 my son was required to take medication during the school week in order to stay focused in class. As a side effect, the medication suppressed his appetite causing him to lose a significant amount of weight. After being informed that chiropractic care helps children with ADHD function without medication, I began sending my son to Dr. Ali. After a year of weekly visits with her, my son felt he was capable of focusing on his own. He asked his doctor if he could stop taking the medication. His doctor suggested that he tried 2 school days off of the medication a week for the remainder of the school year. Soon after trying this, my son’s teacher informed me that he was able to focus even on the days he was med-free. As of this year (grade 7), my son is completely off ADHD medication and is doing extremely well at school. He is able to complete his tests in the time given, which he was unable to do when he was first diagnosed. His grades have improved significantly and according to his teacher he is able to pay attention in class. My son came off the medication sooner than we expected and for this we thank Dr. Ali who has not only adjusted his back weekly, but has also shown concern and offered her support while he struggled with his diagnosis.”
