My name is Sheryl Block and I have participated in Dr. Corey Kirshner’s Metabolic Program. After seeing the workshop Dr. Kirshner advertised in the local newspaper, my husband said to me that so many of the problems listed were what I was suffering from. He suggested that I give the Dr. a call. My major problem was fatigue. It was so major that I slept so much of the day away, and had a severe problem holding down my part time jobs. I really thought that I would need to stop working altogether. I also had brain fog, lacked confidence, and the ability to complete any tasks in a reasonable amount of time. I found myself trying over and over again to do the same thing.
I had made appointments with my medical doctors, prior to Dr. Kirshner, but it seemed that no one could get down to the bottom of what was happening to me and why. I began the program, and truly felt not only was I tired but now I have to curb my eating habits. Shortly after a month on the program, I began to feel better. At first it was a glimmer of hope, and then I realized I was becoming myself once again. I regained my confidence, which I didn’t realize at the time I had lost. I not only felt better, but a friend commented I looked better as well. My husband was so thrilled that my “spunk” was coming back. My expectations were never to lose weight, though I certainly needed to. Losing weight was not a concern of mine, I just wanted to be able to function at the level I was used to. I lost over 20 lbs, but most importantly, I began to feel better and better. I owe it all to Dr. Kirshner, who helped me with every concern I had. Since I had such severe brain fog, his office staff even helped me to prepare for the various tests. I am so thrilled with the results of being on this program. Dr Kirshner was always available to answer my questions which I was so grateful for.
I would be happy to share the details of my problems with anyone that might be going through the same thing. I feel so fortunate to have my life back again.
“I am so thankful that I found Dr. Corey Kirshner through his thyroid seminar. After many years of being overweight, sick and getting sicker, he was the only doctor who could give me a correct diagnosis and then help me to get well by treating the cause, not just the symptoms. Using diet and lifestyle changes to promote healing, he knew just what to do. No prescription drugs at all! He led me through his program of natural healing each step of the way. I lost the weight that I had been trying unsuccessfully to lose for decades and my energy level is better now than it was 20 years ago. I have also noticed an improvement in my mood, complexion and the arthritic pain in my hands. Dr. Kirshner is amiable, attentive and has a real desire to help people find their way back to good health. When friends tell me that I look ten years younger and ask what I did, I tell them about Dr. Corey Kirshner. I only wish I had found him years ago.” – Lynda H.
“I genuinely thank Dr. Kirshner and his Health Solutions program from deep within. Freedom comes in many forms. I’m borrowing words now, “Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”(on the Statue of Liberty). Prior to December 2013, my life had become a prison of poor health, constant fatigue, sluggish thinking, and a sense of exhaustion and fear that this might be all I would know for the rest of my life. Over several years I had struggled to return to health on my own without success. In the 2 months I have been under Dr. Kirshner’s care, real transformation has taken place in my body, mind and spirit. Over 20 pounds thinner and still counting, energy -no more afternoon slumps, clear thinking, sleep and a sense of personal peace. Hope finally realized. The program is so doable, the supplements just part of what I need to so to have a life I can actively live. God has answered my prayers through Dr. Kirshner. My faith, trust, and perseverance rewarded. Thanks again Kirshner Health Solutions with the biggest smile I can manage.” – Adrienne G.
I wanted to thank you guys for the last four months. When I happened upon the ad for your thyroid workshop, I wasn’t even sure if it would have any purpose for me, but I was desperate for some kind of answers to the issues I had been having. As a 24-year-old with fatigue, brain fog, hair loss, malaise, headaches, almost constant musculoskeletal pain, and major depression, I was very unsettled with my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Being a diagnosis of exclusion, it isn’t even really a true diagnosis at all, and leaves one with a lot of questions and few viable options. Having heard some horror stories about where other people have ended up after years of treating this condition, I knew I was going to have to find a different way to meet this head-on. Your ad for the thyroid workshop caught my attention because many of the listed symptoms resonated with me. And although my condition is not thyroid related, I was convinced by the end of your workshop that your program was my only line of defense before turning to traditional medications. Whether or not the program helped to alleviate my symptoms, I knew at the very least I could learn how to properly live a healthy lifestyle in terms of the things I did have control over. (And it would give me the incentive I needed to actually buckle down and make the changes). I could always add in medications later if necessary.
Four months later, I’m amazed at the difference. The changes to my lifestyle have been intense and often difficult, but now the good results are what drive me to keep up with the changes. My fatigue, malaise, and brain fog have pretty much diminished, while my daily mood has all but done a 180. The frequency and intensity of the aches and pains have been greatly reduced, and this, coupled with the improved mood, has allowed me to break out of the vicious cycle of pain and depression that had kept me down for some time. I’ve lost 25 pounds and I feel pretty darn good. My condition seems to be somewhat within my control, which is a great feeling. So instead of dwelling on things and feeling sorry for myself, I have the tools and the incentive to live the way I need to in order to feel as close as possible to normal. I had forgotten what ‘normal’ feels like, I think. A lot of people take ‘normal’ for granted. But for me normal is awesome. Normal feels great.
So thank you and your staff for the guidance and support, and I’ll be popping in whenever my will power falters and I need a kick in the pants to get back on track. – Katie
I was experiencing obesity and fibromyalgia pain, especially in my legs. I was always tired and it was a real effort to do anything. I have gained and los (like a yo-yo) 100 lbs. at least four times before coming to this center and was tired of the same “diet mentality”. I have lost weight (especially belly fat) and continue to lose weight every week. I also have a lot less pain and noticeably more energy (I got my life back!) it was great working with Dr. K. Just knowing why and how food works with your body was a new way of losing weight that finally made sense to me.
Thank you Dr. K!

I’ve been with Dr. Kirshner’s office for approximately three years. I am in treatment for a fractured spine, herniated disc, and degenerative disc disease. I have been plagued with severe back, neck, and hip pain and with regular treatment the pain is almost non-existent. I used to be severely bent over due to misalignment of my spine and back muscles. I had even complained to my neurosurgeon about the way I walked and he said – after my fall of 40 feet, I should be glad that I can walk at all. My spine from the fracture used to be staggered. Now the x-rays show that it is straight and I keep improving with my posture. I went from a wheelchair to a walker to sometimes walking with or without a cane. Recently I was able to go back to work. I am also a nervous person and the friendliness of Dr. Kirshner, Nicole, and Cynthia made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend chiropractic care for treatment for spine, neck, headaches, and to maintain good general health.

I have experience chronic lower back pain and sciatic pain on my right side. I noticed improvement in a few visits but the real test was my trip to Richmond, VA to visit my brother. I drove 5 hours each way with no sciatic pain which was previously unheard of for me. Thanks Dr. Kirshner!\\
I had pain and stiffness in my right hand’s middle finger. It was painful to bend and had extreme pain if I carried something (like a tote bag) in my right hand. Five years ago I was treated for carpal tunnel symptoms in my right hand by a chiropractor and the symptoms disappeared and have never returned. Two days after Dr. Kirshner adjusted my neck for its forward tilt and tightness on the right side, the extreme pain is gone and I can move my finger with little pain! Yes, it’s a chiropractic “miracle”!
I was experiencing extreme pain in my buttocks and legs when I walk and also neck pain. I was treated my numerous orthopedic doctors but the pain is still there. Surgery was recommended but I was reluctant. I then read an article in the Morning Call which mentioned decompression therapy. In just 3 visits the pain went away. I can walk with my wife in a mall without pain. I am very pleased with my results and I would recommend the treatment!
I was experiencing back pain and a painful tailbone area. My right shoulder was also very painful. I had some injections under a pain management group – without any relief. I was also on pain medications until the physician had to stop them to avoid kidney damage. But surgery was ruled out. Since I began my chiropractic treatment, I have movement in my right shoulder and the pain has decreased. My back has experienced increased painless movement and I can walk further and sit longer without feeling pain. I can also rise from a seated position with less pain.
Over the course of the past three years I’ve had severe low back pain, which I thought was due to my job. Back in January of 2001 I just couldn’t take it any longer so I called Dr. Kirshner’s office. They took me in with open arms. My first visit was very informative and so they have all been since.
I have acquired scoliosis which could have ruined my back for life. Due to the care I’ve received from Dr. Kirshner and Amanda, I can finally sleep at night and enjoy outdoor sports without pain and what I like to call pure agony. I am a perfect example on why not to wait any longer to go and see Dr. Kirshner.

I was experiencing a protruding “pot-belly”, gaining weight wit age, clothes not fitting, “dry cough”, itchy burning eyes, acid reflux, having to deal with rising blood pressure and high cholesterol. In the past I felt “out of control” with no plan to correct problems. Emotional “roller-coaster” and moral issues. Feelings of hopelessness at times… From seeing Dr. Kirshner I began experiencing weight loss. My dry cough vanished, no more itchy and burning eyes, my clothes fit again, blood pressure and cholesterol noticeably lowered to where they should be, and no more acid reflux. I saw a drop in 3 to 4 clothing sizes, improved self-esteem and pride, improved physical appearance, more energy, no cravings, sensible eating food choices and portion control.
Thank you Dr. K! I feel empowered!
