I came to see Bryan to get help with my immune system and symptoms of pain and inflammation. He found some imbalances in my metabolic systems and infections in my jaw and teeth. With the help of some detox products, energy treatments and structural work I am able to function much better with little to no pain and good energy.

Bryan is an exceptionally gifted and eclectic practitioner who embodies the cross-discipline convergence of both ancient and contemporary schools of healing. We work together to assist patients in discovering their paths to higher wellness and vitality.

As you know, this life school can bring many challenges. How we respond is the key. It’s difficult to accomplish alone – as a patient or as a practitioner. We are all learning together.

As a doctor, professor and friend, he brings it all to his art. He gets my highest recommendation for the quality of his care and abilities in wellness evaluation.

When I went to listen to Bryan Stern’s lecture on neurotoxins I was a forty six year old woman who didn’t want her body anymore. I had constant fatigue, joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, constant sinus infections, a long-term yeast infection and an inability to get a good night’s rest.

Since beginning the treatment, my joint and muscle pain is gone and I am able to exercise for the first time in three years. My energy level has improved dramatically and my sleep patterns are better. For the first time in over five years like my body again. Thank you!

My Yeast infection is gone and my sinus problems are better too.

I came to you several months ago at the recommendation of my swim coach for chronic pain and tingling in my left arm.

The pain was so bad I was unable to swim. Swimming is my lifeblood and I missed it terribly. I was really depressed about the situation. I had received chiropractic and osteopathic work for the problem, but was still in pain.

I’ve been pain free for some time now and I’m very excited about it. My swimming is strong and my arm feels totally normal. I’m very relieved and very happy.

Thank you so much for your help.
