TESTIMONIAL: LYME DISEASE
I'd had Lyme Disease for about 10 months before someone recommended that I see Dr. Teshna at Freedom Chiropractic in Philmont, NY. During that time, I had taken two months of antibiotics, had all the usual symptoms that were either not getting better or were even getting worse (fatigue, aches, pain, brain fog, etc.), had conflicting blood test results, and was taking what felt like every supplement under the sun. If you’ve ever had Lyme, you probably are familiar with the Siberian ginseng, wheat grass, alpha lipoic acid, Japanese knotweed and so on that you’ll feel like you’re taking endlessly – all of which are great and certainly helped keep me going, but didn’t heal me.
If I wasn't at work, I was sound asleep and that was pretty much my life. I had forgotten what it was like to even feel normal, let alone good. Emotionally, I was starting to feel discouraged and really down over the whole thing.
Through several strokes of what I now consider magnificent good fortune, I was referred to Dr. Teshna. This was less than a month ago, and I am already feeling back to my old self. I’m not only feeling normal, but I’m feeling great!
I've always been open-minded to the idea of alternative forms of medicine/treatment, but had never had a need to use them (that I was aware of). I've learned so much in the last few weeks about the techniques that Dr Teshna uses, but can't profess to be an expert or even able to explain half of it. (I would highly recommend not waiting almost a month like I did before listening to the CD that you’ll be given on your first visit and which explains so much!!)
What I can tell you is that from my very first treatment, the majority of my pain disappeared and has not returned. My energy levels have steadily and significantly increased. There has not been a single person who knows me and has seen me over the past 10 months who has not commented on what a change they can see.
At my first appointment, we spent a lot of time going over my history, which made sense to me given that the Lyme had attacked areas where I had prior injuries or weaknesses. I then received some gentle adjustments along my spine. Using muscle testing, Dr Teshna was able to check various parts of my body to isolate specific areas that needed work.
I left not feeling any different and wasn’t sure what to expect, but I woke up the next morning feeling somewhat normal. Forget about feeling good – if you’ve ever had Lyme Disease, you’ll understand how incredible it can be to have a day where you just feel normal. Nothing hurt or ached, I was able to get out of bed without feeling like it involved climbing Mount Everest. It was a huge improvement in just one visit. At that point, I was pretty sure it must all be in my mind!
At my second appointment, I had another adjustment and we did some testing to see if the Lyme was still active in my body (it was) and came up with a 4-week treatment plan that included seeing Dr. Teshna twice a week and taking a course of homeopathic remedies.
In less than two weeks, I felt about 80% back to normal. It was incredible and I starting having more and more days where I actually felt good. In addition to the adjustments, we started some Quantum Neurology treatments to complement the adjustments and really work on some stubborn problem areas.
It’s been about a month now, and I can’t believe how much my life has changed in just a few weeks. I feel pretty much 100% as well as I did before getting Lyme Disease – we did some testing, and the Lyme bacteria and parasites are no longer active in my body. In four weeks, I got what I had been seeking for almost a year. I feel so incredibly lucky that the kindness and open-mindedness of several people brought me to Dr. Teshna.
I will forever be incredibly grateful for the care and help I have received from Dr. Teshna and her colleagues. I have and will continue to recommend Freedom Chiropractic to friends, family, and strangers alike. If you have not been able to get relief or solutions for what ails you, I highly recommend it to you too. The practice of being able to treat the body holistically, while also being able to isolate and treat specific conditions is invaluable in this day and age where our bodies experience so many stressors, whether they be physical, chemical, or emotional.
Getting regular adjustments is something I plan on making part of my life going forward. I think I deserve to be fine-tuned on a regular basis, and I find it so much more fascinating and beneficial than a mani/pedi!
In December of 2011 after being diagnosed with pneumonia by my medical doctor I took one pill from a "Z-pack" of antibiotics. Within three hours I broke out in hives. It was six o'clock in the evening and I had to wait for my doctor to get back to me. "Do not take another one!! I will order you something else." "In the meantime, begin taking Benadryl." The hives went away, and he phoned in another prescription. I took one of the new pills, and within 15 minutes was covered in the worst case of hives I have ever seen in my life. I don't think that there was an inch on my body that did not have hives on it. I began taking Benadryl again, but this time it did nothing, while I was feeling worse, and worse from the pneumonia. My daughter happened to be getting adjusted when she mentioned to Dr. Teshna that I was very ill. Dr. Teshna had her call me and tell me to come right in. I did and am I glad!!! Dr. Teshna is also a BioEnergetic Practitioner, knowledgeable in Homeopathic and Herbal remedies, as well as supplements. She tested me to find out which remedies would be helpful in my recovery. I started on her program that day and after the first adjustment I felt a bit better, after the second I felt a lot better, and after the third one I felt like my old self again...Oh, and the hives??? I had them for 9 weeks from 2 pills!!! They finally went away, but it was a very lonnnng and miserable nine weeks. THANK YOU DR. TESHNA!!!
TESTIMONIAL: BODY PAINS AND SLEEPING PROBLEMS
I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE MAGIC OF CHIROPRACTIC AT FREEDOM CHIROPRACTIC WITH DR. TESHNA BEAULIEU.
MY PROBLEMS STARTED YEARS AGO (56 YEARS TO BE EXACT) AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT.
I HAVE GONE TO CHIROPRACTORS MY WHOLE LIFE PRIOR TO DR. TESHNA.
ONE MORNING, I WOKE UP AND MY LEFT ARM WAS KILLING ME. THE PAIN WAS UNBEARABLE. I WENT TO MY CHIROPRACTOR AND HE TREATED ME. I KEPT GOING BACK AND GOT THE SAME TREATMENT EACH TIME. I DECIDED TO GO TO AN OSTEOPATH. SHE TOLD ME I HAD A PINCHED NERVE IN MY NECK. MY NEXT APPOINTMENT WITH HER DID NOTHING FOR ME, SO I WENT BACK TO MY ORIGINAL CHIROPRACTOR. HE SENT ME FOR X-RAYS. YES IT CONFIRMED I HAD A PINCHED NERVE. HE GAVE ME THE SAME TREATMENT. AFTER SEVERAL MORE VISITS THE PAIN SUBSIDED A LITTLE BUT DID NOT GO AWAY.
THE NEXT MORNING AT 3:00 AM I WOKE UP AND WHEN I GOT OUT OF BED I FELL AGAINST THE WALL. I COULD NOT PUT ANY WEIGHT ON MY LEFT LEG. BACK TO THE CHIROPRACTOR. SAME TREATMENT. ONLY THIS TIME I NEEDED HELP GETTING ON THE TABLE AND GETTING OFF. THE PAIN WAS SO INTENSE THAT IT MADE ME SICK TO MY STOMACH. WHEN I GOT UP FROM A CHAIR OR BED I HAD TO STAND PERFECTLY STILL, TAKE THREE DEEP BREATHS BEFORE I COULD WALK. WHEN I STARTED WALKING IT WAS FINE FOR A WHILE, BUT I NEVER KNEW WHEN IT WOULD GO OUT AGAIN. IT WAS BY FAR THE WORSE PAIN I HAD EVER EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE.
I TOLD MY DAUGHTER ABOUT IT AND SHE TOLD ME ABOUT DR. TESHNA. I FINALLY AGREED TO GO SEE HER. SHELLY MADE THE APPOINTMENT FOR JANUARY 25, 2012 AND DROVE ME THERE.
WHEN WE WERE CALLED INTO HER OFFICE I WENT TO STAND UP AND ALMOST FELL OVER. SHELLY HAD TO HOLD ME UP. AGAIN I HAD TO STAND PERFECTLY STILL, TAKE THREE DEEP BREATHS BEFORE I COULD WALK TO HER ROOM. SHELLY HAD TO HELP ME ONTO THE TABLE. DR. TESHNA CAME IN AND ASKED ME MANY QUESTONS AND WHERE THE PAIN WAS. THEN SHE STARTED WORKING ON ME.
ON THE WAY HOME, I SAID: "OH MY GOSH!" SHELLY SAID: "WHAT'S WRONG MOM, ARE YOU OKAY?" I SAID: "I CAN FEEL MY BACK AND I CAN FEEL MY SHOULDERS!" THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I COULD RELAX MY BACK AND SHOULDERS IN YEARS. IT FELT WONDERFUL. IT WAS A NEW FEELING FOR ME.
I COULD NOT WAIT FOR MY NEXT APPOINTMENT. THE PAIN IN MY ARM WAS COMPLETELY GONE AND THE ONE IN MY LEG WAS LESS PAINFUL, BUT STILL THERE. DR. TESHNA ALSO SUGGESTED A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT, LAMININE.
AFTER THAT AND THREE ADJUSTMENTS, I WAS PAIN FREE!
ON MY NEXT VISIT WE WERE CHATTING AND I MENTIONED THAT I AM A HORRIBLE SLEEPER. I HATE TO GO TO BED BECAUSE I TOSS AND TURN ALL NIGHT AND WAKE UP EXHAUSTED EVERY DAY. I PULL THE WHOLE BED APART EVERY NIGHT. SHE SUGGESTED I TAKE L-TRYPTOPHAN, WHICH I DID.
I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT THE NEXT NIGHT I WENT TO BED, AGAIN DREADING IT, AND I WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND WAS ASTONISHED AT THE FEELINGS I HAD. I WAS SO RELAXED. IT FELT WONDERFUL. I HAD NOT FELT LIKE THAT IN YEARS, AND THE SHEETS WERE STILL IN PLACE.
I FEEL LIKE A NEW PERSON. ACTUALLY FROM THE FIRST VISIT TO DR. TESHNA I AM A NEW PERSON.
THANK YOU DR. TESHNA FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK - PAIN FREE.
TESTIMONIAL: FINGER PAIN
I feel like a million bucks!
Five weeks into the Tibetan rites, the body really responds. And after NET and the last flush, the pain in my index finger evaporated. After half a year of pain, I now keep bending the finger in disbelief. Have to get used to the lack of hurt in there. Not that I miss it, I just had gotten so used to it.
Let me thank you again for changing my life in such a profound way.
I am really glad I found you.
TESTIMONIAL: TEENAGE DISTRESS
As an adopted child, my daughter carries quite a bit of emotional baggage, which also impacts her physical well-being. At the height of her teenage distress, we began our pilgrimages from mid-western CT to Philmont, NY to work with Dr. Teshna. After the first adjustment and NET treatment, my teen excitedly told me of her experience, clear that she had experienced release from a past emotional trauma. For the next 3 months, we made weekly trips to continue treatment. On one unforgettable trip home, my daughter told me that Dr. Teshna’s NET treatments had helped her release negative emotions more than any other therapist had!
We no longer go to Philmont as often, but periodically, my now 18-year-old, will announce that it is time to see Dr. Teshna because her “occiput is way off”, or her “stomach is way up there!”--in her view, no other therapist quite resolves those needs like Dr. Teshna. I will forever be grateful that Life led us to this gifted and ever-curious, ever-innovative health care practitioner whose natural perceptions allow her to truly assist her patients in their quest for healing and wellness. Dr. Teshna is a tireless pioneer in the alternative health field and a blessing to all under her care.
TESTIMONIAL: ENHANCED SPORTS PERFORMANCE AND WELL-BEING
After my adjustment I have never felt better!
I sleep through the night, I feel more focused and my reaction time is faster. It was recently evident in my boxing match in which I was victorious!
I am definitely looking forward to another and becoming a regular!
Thank-you so much!
TESTIMONIAL: EAR INFECTIONS, GONE!
When my twin boys had their first ear infections at the age of a year and a half; I had to make the difficult decision to give them antibiotics for the first time. This cleared up the infection, however a month or two later, we were back in the same boat. Another infection, and this time the pediatrician said that their ear canals had fluid in them. This condition pre-disposed them to perhaps numerous infections down the road, more antibiotics and a consult with an Ear Nose and Throat Doctor for “tubes” if the condition did not change. That was a road I did not want to go down.
At a routine chiropractic check-up with Dr. Teshna, we mentioned the boys' ear problem. She of course adjusted them and strongly suggested that we remove wheat (gluten) and dairy from their diets. So, we made a commitment to do that, as well as use some homeopathic remedies that Dr. Teshna tested on the boys.
After making those changes, we had no more ear infections! The pediatrician still checked their ear canals every 3 months to see if they were clear. In six months time, during the last ear canal check, he told us that the boys' ear canals looked great and that he never would have guessed that there was a problem to begin with! My husband and I were thrilled! Thanks Dr. Teshna!

TESTIMONIAL - MY HEALNG JOURNEY
I’ll try to remember everything, there has been so many changes in my health from the start of my visits with Dr. Teshna.
She asked me what the doctors were treating me for, I said Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. She said: “let’s see what your body can do to heal itself once your nervous system is working better.”
That 1st visit, trying to climb the stairs to her office, seemed almost impossible, my legs were so weak and painful. I was angry that a Doctor would have a patient climb stairs. My hands were purplish and unable to open or even hold a pen. After 3 visits to Dr. Teshna I was running up those stairs! My hands were returning to a normal color and I could open them and hold a pen for the first time in ages! AND the big thing is that’s how fast I took it for granted!
Dr. Teshna tested me for food sensitivities. I am sensitive to sugar, and to sum it all up, anything processed; when I stopped eating those foods, I felt like I was 17 again, full of life and energy.
My RA Doctor had me on so many drugs, it was very difficult to think and I was sleeping at least 18 hours a day. After 3 months of visits with Dr. Teshna, I was able to wean myself off all the drugs little by little. Besides clearing my brain, I was dropping pounds like crazy! One drug was prednisone, it blows you up!
I even began skiing with my daughter! As well as walking 4 miles a day.
After doing various cleanses Dr. Teshna suggested, I noticed among other things my eyes were a shade lighter, I always had dark brown eyes, now I have hazel eyes.
Another time, while walking my dog I was pulled down an embankment about a mile from my home, I knew I pulled ligaments. It was very painful. The leg was all swollen and bruised. I went to see Dr. Teshna and she treated me with adjustments and acu-aids on my leg. The acu-aids sped up my healing time greatly.
I have had many NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) sessions, clearing out unwanted subconscious beliefs and fears, and deep-seated thinking. I stopped smoking cigarettes and started flying in airplanes. I was totally paranoid before, about flying anywhere in an airplane, after getting cleared with NET, I have flown to Italy, Mexico, Florida, Arizona, many times and other states.
I don’t know if my visits with Dr. Teshna had anything to do with menopause, but one day about 4 women were discussing what they were taking for menopause symptoms, someone asked me what I was taking, (never had a hot flash or any symptom). I wasn’t taking anything. I think somehow my adjustments had something to do with it.
I would advise anyone to have an adjustment after any fall!! I’ve had tons of falls, each time I’ve made sure to get an adjustment, sure enough something was out of line. The adjustments helped me recover faster.
After an auto accident, I had a serious whiplash, after believing whiplash was a joke, I realized how serious it was. After many adjustments, my jaw, neck and spine were back in alignment. I felt like myself again.
