Successes - Drug Need

Drug Need

After only one visit I have decreased my drug usage from approximately 60 Tums per month to 2, 60 Tylenol per month to 4, and alcohol every day to twice in the last month. I sleep so much better it is remarkable. Thank you so much Dr. Pepi and staff.        J.W.


"After seeing Dr. Pepi, my son's ear aches stopped in a few days.  He was getting a virus all the time since he was born and it got treated by Dr. Pepi.  Thanks to her, he is not going to need harmful antibiotics anymore.  He is a healthy child thanks to Dr. Pepi."        K.H.


I was diagnosed with Graves Eye Disease-hyperthroidism-in 1994.  since that time, I have lived with the symptoms and controlled them to some extent only with acupuncture, finally agreeing to take anti-thyroid medication because of potentially serious long term effects of an over active thyroid.  Dr. Pepi began treating me six months ago when I was taking 20mg a day.  She pinpointed the source of the auto-immune reaction causing the thyroid disease and began treating me with supplements.  The result is that I am now off the medicaiton and for the first time in 12 years, my blood tests are reflecting draumatic change towards normal thyroid function.  We are now moving on to address other conditions and I am very very grateful!        K.M.


When I came to see Dr. Pepi about a month ago, my left shoulder was giving me a great deal of trouble. The pain was such that I had trouble sleeping and needed Tylenol PM to get any relief. Now, with just one treatment and some supplements, I am not having any trouble with my left shoulder at all with no drugs needed. This is to me a bit of a miracle and I am very grateful.        Much, much love, P.C.


I came to see Dr Pepi for Hashimoto's disease, a condition where the body attacks its own thyroid.  My thyroid antibodies levels were 320 which is high.  She treated my thyroid and the Hashimoto's on the first visit.  7 weeks later, I am off my thyroid medication and my thyroid levels are normal and the thyroid antibodies are below 20, in normal range.   My temperature which was 97 degrees on the first visit is now 98.2, probably due to my improving thyroid condition.        V.B.


I have been taking birth control pills for years to control my PMS. I have always had sever problem with PMS since I was 9 years old. Since quitting the pills and taking the supplements and seeing Dr. Pepi, I no longer have PMS symptoms at all. Thanks, Dr. Pepi!! P.S. I was clinically diagnosed by the doctors at the Oregon Health Sciences University with PMS.        J.S.


I have felt and seen wonderful results from my treatments with Dr. Pepi and the supplements she recommends.  Her products helped me through a bad cold and congestion…as well as killing bacteria.  Many other issues have been healed and are still being healed by Dr. Pepi by taking specific supplements she prescribes.  Thank you so much for getting me off of steroids and into such better health.  I actually wake up with energy and no fatigue.        M.L.


When I first came to see Dr. Pepi I was taking a high blood pressure medication.  She gave me a specific supplement and said to watch my pressure.  Within a few months I had to cut my [blood pressure] pill in half and my pressure is lower than it has been in years.        C.H.


Before I started seeing Dr. Pepi I was seeing my medical doctor who took blood tests and diagnosed me with hyperthyroidism. I had a swollen lump in my throat, my energy was low and my doctor told me I would need to be on drugs every day of my life or else have radiation iodine “therapy”. Since seeing Dr. Pepi my energy level has gone up to almost what it had been (80% better), the lump in my throat has gone way down (80% better) and I know I won’t need to be on drugs, or worse, have surgery! Thanks.        C.S.


When I first came to Dr. Pepi, I had several things I wanted handled. I had an infection in my eye which was giving me a lot of discomfort and getting me upset due its progressed condition. I had been on steroids to try and correct it which was actually making it worse. Each time I would try to go off of them, it would flare up again. Since working with Anita I have successfully been taken off the steroids and it all seems to be under control.        J.W.


Recently I got very sick out of nowhere with a bad fever and really bad cold symptoms one night.  The following day I had terrible back pain.  It hurt so much that I couldn’t sleep and I had to walk and balance my body very slowly when moving.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Pepi and she told me that my kidneys were screaming and had an infection.  She did the treatment necessary to address both the source of my back pain and also my other symptoms.  She instructed me with detail on what to do to help my body get rid of the infections as well.  At the end of the treatment my back pain was 50% better and my body overall felt less stressed.  I followed all of her instructions and in two days my infection was 90% better (yayyy!) and a couple of days after that it was completely gone.  I used NO ANTIBIOTICS and NO PAIN PILLS for the pain or infection.  Not only that but I also lost a couple of pounds too!  My body was very happy and thankful for the treatment and spot-on program to handle this.  Thank you Dr. Pepi!        C.A.


I had bad back, neck and wrist pain that I saw many chiropractors to handle. These symptoms did not improve and I was taking Tylenol to relieve the pain. My last chiropractor had no solid explanation for why my adjustments wouldn’t hold. I decided not to drag it out with her and waste even more money so I went to see Dr. Pepi because I heard from a couple of people that she was really different and got fast results.

 Dr. Pepi told me that no healing was going on in my back. This was not news to me! After one hour with her, my upper back and neck (this was the most painful part of my spine) sweated for about twenty-four hours. It really felt like something was going on in that area. My back felt relieved, as if someone had finally done what it wanted. After that I did not have to run to anyone to get adjusted just to manage my pain. I saw Dr. Pepi quite a few times for my back after that. It was really easy for me to overdo it (just about anything could stress my weak back). But I knew that when she was working on me it was helping me heal – it wasn’t just some arbitrary thing like other doctors had done.
Some months after my first treatment I started a belly dancing class. While I was there one day I realized I was doing repeated motions with my back that even once a few months ago would have left me in tears and taking Tylenol for days.

I wasted tons of money with other chiropractors and got nothing for it. Dr. Pepi has really different techniques that make traditional chiropractic seem primitive.        M.P.


My son had Candida due to excessive antibiotics for colds, flu, pneumonia, etc. He was on a vicious cycle of get sick, take antibiotics, get well and then sick again as the antibiotics and Candida destroyed his immune system. He developed allergies and was a very unhappy 4 years old. In the 4 months that he has been under Dr. Pepi’s care he has been sick 1 time for 1 day only. His coloring, his outlook on life and his temperament have all improved. He’s actually getting over his allergies. He is a changed kid. He also loves Dr. Pepi! Thanks so much.        N.P.


Before I came to see Dr. Pepi I was always exhausted.  I felt like a walking zombie.  She started me on some supplements and now I have more energy than before.  I wake up when the alarm clock sounds and I can last the day.
          I also was experiencing pain in my back and liver that doctors only gave me pain killers and muscles relaxers for.  I am not fond of this type of treatment.  With the supplements from Dr. Pepi I have hardly any pain.  My sleep is more restful because I am not in pain anymore.  Before if I moved at night I had so much pain it would wake me up.  Now nothing wakes me up.        C.A.


About one year ago, my then 2 year old daughter, was having difficulty breathing. She would wheeze about two “episodes” per month – requiring 4 to 5 day treatments of albuterol administered through a nebulizer. Her pediatrician considered the wheezing to be partially triggered by allergies and weather changes. In addition to the albuterol treatments, she was often placed on steroids and was being considered for maintenance doses of Claritin.

I was referred to Dr. Pepi. We have adjusted my daughter’s diet, placed her on a daily regimen of supplements and visited Dr. Pepi regularly. My daughter’s health has improved substantially – she has wheezed only 2 times in the past 8 months. Both wheezing “episodes” were resolved extremely quickly without the use of steroids.        M.C. for Anna


When I was 18, I had a severe painful infection in the right Eustachian tube (it connects the back of the nose and middle ear).  I was given antibiotics, a special inhaler and Codeine for the severe pain.  I had to do these for several weeks.  A lot of scar tissue was formed and this area has caused me problems on and off for the past 30 years.  It gets clogged with mucus easily, especially if allergies or an infection flares up.   It will become very uncomfortable and I feel like I have to constantly “pop my ear”, like when you’re on an airplane.  It’s generally irritating and can be painful.

Recently it became very inflamed and painful.  The entire right side of my temple, neck & ear area was in pain.  Dr. Pepi did one treatment on this and the pain was dramatically better!  Within a day or two it felt like normal.  She also got my body to start healing the scar tissue, to replace it with healthy tissue.   It was a big relief, it was all done without drugs, and I didn’t miss any work due to being ill.  Thanks!!        N.K.


I am very particular to only see dentists who believe in healing and health.  I was seeing the most competent dentist I could find, who I considered to be a healer.  He was part of a dentist research group that was researching new technologies and breakthroughs in dentistry.

He x-rayed my mouth in an area where I had an abscess.  On the x-ray, he showed me a dime-size infection in my jaw under one of my teeth.  He said it had to be excavated or dug out and was going to refer me out to a specialist to do that.  He said in all his years of dentistry he had never seen an infection like that heal - it had to be excavated.  I told him I would pass on the dental digging.

Instead I had Dr. Pepi treat it.  She spent about 1/2 hour treating it and gave me supplements to take for it.  The abscess in the area disappeared so I knew we were on the right track.  One year later, I had the area x-rayed to see how it was doing.  The infection was gone and the bone had healed up completely!   I have continued to have this area overseen by dental x-rays, but they say there is no longer any problem there.    A dental miracle!!   So much less expensive than the dental surgery planned. . .plus no drugs!        A.J.


After 2 years I was able to stop taking a sleeping medication. I am now taking a supplement that Dr. Pepi recommended instead and getting just as great sleep without the drugs. I thank you Dr. Pepi for your help. I have faith in your magical alternatives.        G.O.


When I first visited Dr. Pepi, I had been severely ill with ulcerative colitis for 19 years.  I had been taking heavy dosages of medication which were no longer effective.  I was in severe pain.  My colon was inflamed, I was bleeding out of my rectum and I had 50 diarrhea visits a day.  My gastroenterologist wanted to remove my colon.  I ran away from him and into Dr. Pepi’s office as my last bit of hope.  4 weeks after my first visit with Dr. Pepi, I was 100% completely cured of ulcerative colitis.  That was 9 months ago.  I have had zero symptoms since.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you Dr. Pepi!        K.K.


Dr. Pepi helped with my son’s ear infection.  He has seen MDs and they always gave him antibiotics.  She had him use a specific solution which was great…[it] did something with his ph/acid balance and he was all better.  Thank you.        B.T.


Success is usually measured by accomplishments. The “I did this and that” sort of thing. For me success is being measured on Dr. Pepi’s programs by “I did not”. This month for example:

1) I did not wake up every night of after 3 or 4 hours sleep and stay awake until dawn with insufferable insomnia.

2) I did not have to take pain killers for “that time of the month”.

3) I did not feel like I was a complete mental and emotional basket case.

4) I did not come home so drained I couldn’t even walk my dog, much less play with him.

5) I did not stay home on the weekend exhausted and emotionally beat because I was too exhausted to enjoy a day off to see my friends or family. I went out and had fun.

All told, this list of “did nots” I did not think would ever be, so never let it be said I did not appreciate Dr. Pepi and her crew. Thank you all. You did not let me down.        K.L.


My little brother (I call him that even though he is 33 years old now) has endured 12 years of heartbreaking agony with mental illness. Diagnosed at age 21 with paranoid schizophrenia, he began years of repeated hospitalizations, irrational violence, ineffective psychotropic medications, uniformed psychiatrists, group homes, legal proceedings, homelessness (in Cleveland winters0, delusional thinking, and the hopelessness of watching his peers progressing through life while he languished in terror and confusion.

His medications have included Haldol, Congentin and Risperdal.

I came to know about oils because of the huge role it played in my own recovery from Multiple Sclerosis. This simple oil supplement supplied my brain and nervous system with the nutrients needed to restore much of my lost mobility and cognition.

In 1999, a friend informed me that studies were in progress in Canada on the benefits of the oils with Mental Illness patients with various brain disorders. It was helping to the extent that many were able to gradually wean off medication. Of course I wanted desperately for him [my brother] to try it, but not until November 2001 would he consent.

I am thrilled to report that I received a phone call on December 17, 2001 from my brother (from my mother’s house, not from a group home). He said, “Thank you so much for those vitamins you sent. I have a sense of peace for the first time in a long time, and real mental clarity.

I almost burst into tears. My mother was almost beside herself with joy. She said “I’m getting my son back!”

Since that phone call, my mother and sister report that his reasoning, memory, memory/reflection, conversational clarity and calmness are all much improved and he is eager to start re-establishing a functional life.

He is now able to live at home for 4 out of 7 days per week instead of at the group home all week long.

He is going to continue with the oils and perhaps one day he can be completely sane and medicine free.        S.M.C.


I came in to see Dr. Pepi right after being in the hospital the whole night with kidney stones.  I was told it was going to be really painful—which it was—and that I had to be on pain medication until my kidney stone passed.  I then decided that morning that I was not going to take pain medication and that there must be a natural and safe way to handle it.  So I came in to see Dr. Pepi and she did a handling on me.  When the pain medication wore off that I was given at the hospital, I had no pain...  Dr. Pepi’s handling worked and I was pain free and medication free until the kidney stone finally passed through my system.        C.L.


I am a new woman now. My chronic muscle pain that I used to have to take drugs for is much better and I can exercise when I couldn’t before. My body is 75% more flexible and I’ve lost 14 pounds. My energy level is 90% better. WOW!        M.P.


I had been absolutely miserable.  When I saw my car covered with fine, yellow pollen from the trees above, I realized my pollen allergies had flared up with the recent warm and windy weather.  My nose was running so much I had to hold a Kleenex under it or it would drip!  My sinuses were stuffy and ached, I was sneezing, my chest was congested and my nose was starting to get raw from wiping it so much.  It was hard to concentrate, I felt mentally dull and I was getting frequent headaches.  I kept taking breaks at work because I was having sneezing “fits” and blowing my nose so much.

As a teenager, I took prescription drugs and got allergy shots to control my symptoms, but those drugs caused side-effects and more body problems.  I recall having a veeeeeeery scary allergic reaction after an allergy shot.  (Hey, aren’t they supposed to make you feel better?!?)  After 2 days of misery, I scheduled with Dr. Pepi.  In one short visit, she was able to treat exactly the right things and find the right natural remedy.  The sneezing, runny nose and headaches stopped immediately, and I haven’t had it flare back up!  And she did it without drugs!        N.K.


Fourteen years ago as a young girl (very, very young Ha!) I started taking laxatives to get skinny. I then became addicted to them taking one hundred laxatives a day. Needless to say I screwed up my system so that I always needed to take a form of laxative to have a bowel movement. This problem has diminished by coming to Anita Pepi. My system works on its own and is getting stronger and rebuilding. Thank you.        M.S.


I had only seen Dr. Pepi for a short time. In the month after I started the vitamins and the change of diet, my asthma almost completely disappeared. I used to use my inhaler on a daily basis. Now I can put it away, I even forget where I put it. That’s because I am no longer worried carrying it around everywhere I go. This has also had the same results for my son, who unfortunately suffers from the same illness. Since Dr. Pepi got him off the sugar and onto these vitamins, he can finally stay away from Doctors and breathing treatments. Thank you, Dr. Pepi.        N.W.


When I first came to Dr. Pepi I was feeling constantly fatigued, and I was experiencing headaches and muscle imbalance.  Also quite regularly I had to take my inhaler for my asthma that was being affected by pollens, grasses, and especially cat dander.  These were all troubles in my life that I wanted to reduce or get rid of altogether.  After hearing about Dr. Pepi and all the amazing results she has gotten, I knew I had to try it out.

Not more than a few weeks after I had seen her, I was feeling much better.  For fatigue she gave me some vitamins to take everyday and also some healthier alternatives to my diet.  I am a college athlete, so naturally sports drinks were a must-have, but after learning that they did more damage than giving you energy I immediately stopped.  Along with [cutting out] sports drinks, I also was told to change my diet by adding some more essential “energy” foods.  From these little changes I have seen a drastic increase in my athletic ability and stamina, and have been able to concentrate better.  Also…I have not had one headache since, which is extremely rare.

Also my new diet and alternative foods have helped with my muscle imbalance and asthma.  The muscle imbalance caused my knees, back, legs, and neck to hurt constantly.  After going in for an appointment, Dr. Pepi somehow got my muscles to start working properly again.  Now I seem to be more athletic, with less pain in everyday life.  My asthma has greatly improved since I have seen Dr. Pepi.  During certain times of the year I had to take my inhaler at least every other day, but now, I haven’t taken it since I have been treated.

In other words I highly recommend everyone to Dr. Pepi, as she has had some amazing results with me and countless other patients.        S.M.


Since the age of 12 I have suffered terribly from severe menstrual pain. It has interfered with every aspect of my life. I always had to plan around my period, worrying that it would ruin track meets, exams, graduations, job interviews, big presentations, business trips, wedding, etc. Then I met Dr. Pepi this year. She recommended some special oils. I was pleased because it was so much less dangerous that the 800 mg Ibuprofen I had been using in order to function. I am thrilled to say that now my periods are virtually cramp free! It’s a miracle, finally, at age 38!!        S.M.C.


I was suffering badly from Candida. I knew of the condition’s existence, but I didn’t realize how horribly it was affecting my life. I was on this downward spiral of caffeine, sugar, nicotine and a few street drugs as well as moderate alcohol consumption. At 23, I was destined for some major health problems. I’d lost my voice, my memory, my confidence and basically my ability to function properly. Through diet changes, supplements and courses, I’m on the road to health. I feel a thousand times better. It’s as if I’m getting my life back again. Even though I’ve go a good six months to go on the program, the progress I’ve made in the last two months has been remarkable. Thanks. Dr. Pepi!        R.M.


My first visit to Dr. Pepi in October 1990 started my body on the road to recovery. I had been the affected by Asthma for 27 years. Now I am off any drugs (which were making it much worse). Thanks, Dr. Pepi.        E.H.


When I first came to see Dr. Pepi, my thyroid had been misbehaving and was being treated by a thyroid specialist. Blood levels were high and I was taking a hormone to control it. Dr. Pepi convinced me that I would be better off without the hormone and with her supplements and treatment. Now, about 1 ½ years later I had new blood tests done and my thyroid levels were all normal. So, it is possible to handle this with more “natural” methods. I am sure that my thyroid condition, if not completely gone now, will be soon, thanks to Dr. Pepi!        M.G.


I just completed my treatment here today.  I started the day barely able to walk due to the pain from a kidney stone.  The stone was not moving.  Hours passed with no end in sight.  Finally I was brought here to see Dr. Pepi.  Within about 15-20 minutes she had the stone moving and then out of my system.  The relief was incredible.  No drugs needed of course.  I now feel totally handled and have positive direction on the permanent handling.  I am very pleased with the result and would recommend her to anyone.        V.B.


I was suffering from an excruciating migraine headache when I came to see Dr. Pepi.  She treated me and then recommended a specific supplement.  I was coming off of my allergy medication and so it took a couple of days with great results.  I also use the sinus irrigation 2x a day.  It feels great and my sinuses are much better thanks to Dr. Pepi.        J.M.


I have had an extremely difficult time with my menstrual period since I was eleven years old. Before seeing Dr. Pepi, I had resorted to taking Advil (an over-the-counter pain medication) to help alleviate the pain. This went on for about five years. After having tried every other way, short of surgery, to handle my condition without success, I felt that I had no other recourse. Since seeing Dr. Pepi I have stopped taking Advil (for about five months) and have been detoxifying quite heavily most of the time. Now, I’m feeling very well and best of all my menstrual period is about 75% better – an astonishing win for me. I’m now looking forward to 100%! Thank you, Dr. Pepi.        V.D.


I learned early in life to select a path after careful thought, then to stick to it, with frequent appraisal. So, when back problems began forty-five years ago, I gave complete cooperation to various doctors – up to now – about rest, exercise, pillows, beds, back rests, braces (large and small, metal and canvas), pills (from no aspirin before I was thirty to Darvons, six a day) sleeping pills, tranquilizers, antacid and liquor.

My body became somewhat desensitized. My head was befuddled much of the time. I lost confidence in being able to handle the pain, so that I would start taking pain killers and alcohol more quickly. Thirty-five years after my first spinal operation and twenty-five years after the third, the surgeons said it would take a stupendous operation to give me relief. By that time, Anita had graduated from college and was starting classes at chiropractic school. She began suggesting other procedures.

Five years ago I went to the first of three doctors of chiropractic. The first two were helpful to some degree, but life was still very painful. I came to the clinic where Drs. Dziekan and Pepi worked on me for about twelve hours. Their technique was unbelievable. The only thing good about it was that I felt reasonably well for the first time in half a century. Now, I still get pain - much less violent, no pills, no liquors and no fears of more operations on the spine. “Where has this stuff been for fifty years?” If these procedures had been available to me fifty years ago, how much trauma to me and my family might have been avoided.        R.P.


I had my first phone consultation with Dr. Pepi only two weeks ago and already, so much has changed. I am a single mother with three children. I have a lot of stress in my life. I wanted help with weight, depression and anxiety. In just two weeks my energy is 400% better! I am sleeping better for the first time in years. My depression is 95% better and I have gotten off all my anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications! I have also lost two dress sizes!!

During my phone consultation, Dr. Pepi also made recommendations for my children. My 19 month old was not sleeping through the night. After giving him supplements that Dr. Pepi recommended, he has been sleeping well ever since. Two of my children have asthma problems and needed daily breathing treatments. There has been a 60% decrease in one child’s need for treatments and the other’s treatment need has decreased 75%.

I highly recommend Dr. Pepi!! I’ve only had three phone consultations. I can’t believe I’ve gotten such great results without even seeing the doctor. Dr. Pepi, you’re awesome!!        R.K.


I’ve suffered with allergies my whole life. As a child I received three allergy shots three times per week. In the past year, my allergies have gotten so bad that I stopped going for daily walks with my family. After two visits with Dr. Pepi, my allergies improved so much that I started back on walks with my husband and daughter. After my third visit with Dr. Pepi, I stopped carrying Kleenex everywhere. Thank you, Dr. Pepi. P.S. I am no longer taking allergy medicine!        B.A.
