When I first came to see Dr. Dericks, we had tried everything to treat my 3 year old son’s eczema. EVERYTHING! It was red, itchy and bleeding and he wasn’t sleeping from the itch. My son also had cradle cap since birth that wouldn’t go away. I was shocked by how quickly his eczema and cradle cap went away after we started working with Dr. Dericks. I am so grateful!
I had suffered from stomach pain and bloating for over 11 years. I went on many different diets. I took multiple supplements. They seemed to help for a while but then would stop working. Dr. Dericks was able to help me find the cause of my stomach pain. We worked together. I no longer have stomach pain. I have my life back. If you want to feel better and get to the root of your problem and not just mask it with prescription drugs I would highly recommend Dr. Dericks.
After the birth of my first child I experienced postpartum anxiety and depression. I didn’t want to get out of bed. I was scared to care for my child. Everything felt overwhelming. My husband and friends realized what was happening and made an appointment for me with Dr. Dericks. She helped me without judgement. I finally felt I had control. I know I couldn’t have done it without her.
The first time my 6 month old boy had a fever, I was terrified. I thought I was supposed to give my child Tylenol. But when it didn’t work I reached out to Dr. Dericks. At our appointment she checked my son. She told me about the importance of fevers on the immune system and how they are important for development. She told me about how to support the body through a fever and warning signs to look for and how to avoid them. I had never been told this before. When fevers come, I now feel confident in my ability to care for my son.
I believe Naturopathic Medicine is the health care of the future. Working with Dr. Dericks has been very helpful. I have learned and changed so much. She is caring and understanding. For years I suffered from headaches, fatigue, joint pain and overall feeling unwell. I was on multiple medications and I felt I was getting worse. Dr. Dericks helped me turn my health around. It’s empowering to take charge of my life and health with her support.
Dr. Anne was very informative and explained the physical and emotional benefits that pelvic floor healing can have in my life and with my relationship with my husband. The first benefit I noticed came the day after our first treatment. I think my intestines had been squished during pregnancy and after an abdominal massage I passed a large smooth movement. This may be TMI but if you are post-partum nothing is really private anymore. The next benefit I found came after a few treatments. I found that my diastasis was healing very well, and I had more control and connection to my pelvic floor. I also started to use her visualization technique for letting go of stress, anxiety and guilt that I had stored up through-out my life. This began a deeper healing that has allowed me to be more compassionate to myself. Pregnancy is a physical, emotional and spiritual journey that is unique for each woman. For me the healing process afterward needed to encompass those three aspects, and working with Dr. Anne has helped a lot.
