“I went to see Dr. Sandro on the recommendation of a friend. I had undergone a hysterectomy two years prior and did not feel like myself anymore. I lacked energy and my strength was waning, my thyroid was malfunctioning, my hormone levels were erratic, I was diagnosed with emphysema, and my night table was a mass of prescription bottles. To say I did not feel well is to understate my condition.
Dr. Sandro took my case history, discussed all aspects of my life, and weeded his way through my shopping bag full of traditional cures. He talked to me at length about what was happening to my body and explained his plan for my holistic treatment.
Within a couple of months, I was beginning to feel like my old self again. By the end of the summer, much of my energy and strength had returned. Now, one year later, I feel better than ever. I feel like conquering the world. I feel good. I feel happy. I feel alive.
The best thing I ever did for myself was to enter the world of naturopathic medicine. Thank you, Dr. Sandro.”C.K.
“I have suffered from back and bilateral joint pain for years. I have tried prescription and over-the-counter drugs, chiropractic, acupuncture, acupressure and topical treatments. I began seeing Dr. Sandro several months ago, and am delighted to say that his treatment and the natural remedies he provided have substantially reduced my back pain and have completely eliminated pain and discomfort in my knees, shoulders and elbows. I have found Dr. Sandro to be a medical professional who truly listens and who is dedicated to pain eradication by addressing root causes, not by masking symptoms and quick fix adjustments and pain killers. He has assuredly earned my trust and appreciation, and I highly recommend his skills and expertise to others who are suffering.D.C.
“I came to see Dr. Greta for polycystic ovarian syndrome. I was experiencing hair loss, acne, irregular periods, anxiety attacks and depression. Being a patient of Dr. Greta was truly a blessing. She was thorough, kind, and concerned. She worked extremely hard to get to the root of the problem. From that point on I experienced less hair loss, acne, anxiety attacks, depression and approximately 7 months later, I receive a period. By far her and her husband are the most remarkable doctors.”J.D.
“After a period of high stress when I was trying to get a new business started and taking care of my parents who live 80 miles away, I began to notice a lump in my throat. It did not hurt but I could not swallow. A friend finally urged me to see my doctor, fearing something serious. I went to see Dr. Sandro, who had helped me in the past. His line of questioning and keen observation skills of my behavior on this visit versus others was amazing. Even as he talked and listened I saw how the previous months had been affecting me. He gave me a homeopathic remedy. A single, once a day dose of the homeopathic brought sporadic relief in 3 days, and complete relief in one week. Thanks, Doc, for your understanding of natural remedies, the time and instruction you gave me, for the gentle abilities you’ve allowed to develop in you, the detection of nuance overlooked so easily, and the passion to keep alternative therapies around for the future.”C.H.
Our family and support circle have been working to help our eight year old with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) succeed in life.
We discovered through naturopathic medical testing that he has off the charts candida, several nutrients and metabolites deficiencies, and he’s allergic to dairy, egg yolk and gluten. All of which can greatly enhance his neurological disorder symptoms. We have seen great improvements with his behavior over the past four months of treatment. We’ve been told by Dr. Sandro D’Amico that it can take up to six months to see his behavior stabilize. All of us are so excited to support and nurture him on this path of having a higher quality of life.
A little history: He was diagnosed with ASD, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) over the past two years. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being high energy, he was a 10 and now we feel he is a 6. We haven’t seen any ODD behavior in months. We as parents are not the only people that has noticed the changes. Our son used to cause property damage, physically harm individuals as well as elope from school constantly. His teachers commented on his last Individual Educational Plan (IEP) meeting that he has not shown any of the behavioral challenges listed in his IEP plan since he came under the care of Four Rivers. He’s been so responsive and has handled the transitions so well. We are very proud of our son and very grateful for Dr. Sandro D’Amico and the staff at Four Rivers!B.J.
“As I sit here today, writing this letter, I have increased vitality, clarity of mind and lushness of spirit. Beginning six months ago, Dr. Greta’s thoughtful questioning, skill and passion for discovering my individual steps toward health were a catalyst for this continued return to self. I have always felt genuinely cared for by her, as well as that feeling of connection which is present when your doctor is truly invested in your well-being and your life.”K.H.
“I am an over the road truck driver and routinely experienced headaches in the afternoons, general feelings of fatigue and irritability. Dr. Sandro performed ‘AK’ and immediately I felt refreshed and full of energy. My afternoon headaches are a thing of the past, and my energy level increased. My co-driver noted that I am much calmer, I feel more relaxed and do not tire as easily.”W.M.
“I am so grateful for all that you did to help me get ready for my hysterectomy last year. Your nutritional advice, the supplements you recommended and the physical medicine that you included in my care are the reason that I woke from surgery feeling like nothing had happened. I was able to walk about a mile in the hospital the day of the surgery with very little discomfort. My doctors were absolutely amazed at my recovery.
I would like to express my deepest appreciation for all the time you spent working with me. Your patients can rest assured that you really care about them and will do everything in your power to help them live the healthiest lifestyle possible. May God bless you both and every person you treat.”S.C.
“I first saw Dr. Sandro a year ago. I was so fatigued and stressed, I could hardly move my body. I had issues with my thyroid and my adrenals. Dr. Sandro determined that my dosage of thyroid pills was incorrect, and put me on supplements to support my adrenals. Within a very short time, I started to feel better. I got my energy back and was able to function at a much higher level. Previous to seeing Dr. Sandro I had been misdiagnosed by many traditional doctors. I highly recommend Dr. Sandro. He is very caring and his approach to health is all-encompassing.”S.J.
“I have found Dr. Sandro to be kind, patient, capable and knowledgable. Truly, I am thankful for his treatment.”P.E.
“I had heard good things about both doctors at Four Rivers Clinic, but eventually settled on Dr. Sandro to get to the root of my fatigue. After a comprehensive overview of my general health, diet, exercise, and a few tests to pinpoint my problem areas, mainly stress, Dr. Sandro suggested Self Regulation Therapy. I do not remember the scientific explanation of how this therapy works, but I can say that it does work. Once SRT is practiced enough with the doctor’s guidance, it can be practiced anywhere, anytime to bring calm, rest, and ‘truth” to any situation. I found doctor Sandro and Greta’s office to be inviting, the receptionist friendly and helpful, and both doctors to maintain a friendly, warm and professional atmosphere.”T.P.
“Thank you so much for your wonderful support during a time in my life when I was ill and in search of natural ways to bring my body back into balance. You were instrumental in my healing process, and I appreciate you tremendously!
Your gentle and confident manner always showed me that you really cared. I sensed at a very deep level your interest in my wellbeing on all levels and am thankful for your suggestions in helping to heal my spirit too.
You are a magnificent person with the great gift of healing!”L.M.
I went to Dr. Sandro because I’ve struggled with OCD for over ten years (for me, it manifests in repetitive thought/worry and the corresponding anxiety). I didn’t want to take traditional anti-anxiety medications, so I looked for another approach and found Dr. Sandro and I am SO happy I did! After just six months I was already feeling better. And after a year, I feel practically 100% back to my old non-OCD-self.
Moreover, for such a delicate and personal issue as OCD, I never once felt uncomfortable. I was never pushed into sharing something I didn’t feel emotionally ready to share, and his wonderful office staff made me feel welcome and comfortable — even from the very first phone call (thank you Lisa!).A.W.
I would just like to say thank you for all that you have done for me. I am so grateful to have a knowledgable and caring naturopath. I look forward to my continued care. God bless you always. I can’t tell you how good it feels to be feeling good again.
