Dr. Khalsa Patient Testimonials
I am a 12 years Arizona resident, one of the first thing I heard from colleagues at work after moving is, Arizona is a biggest allergy sufferer state, within two to three years I was on allergy route, after five-six years of staying here I thought this is normal to be taking multiple doses of allergy fixes every day. You name the allergy medicine and I have tried them Flonase, Nasonex, Astelin, Allegra, Zyrtec, Claritin, Singular, 2-3 times a year I will have sinus infections, severe runny nose and have to get the Antibiotics and oral steroids to get better, a few years in to allergy medicine usage, and I was now having serious acid reflux problem, my PCP started me with Nexium, and every few months he has to increase the dose, I was at a point I cannot eat anything if I don’t take Nexium daily. Truly, I felt down physically & mentally every day. My energy level was low, and I felt completely worn out by end of the work day.
I sought an alternate medicine treatment and looked up Google and met up with Dr Khalsa. She took time to understand my health issue and worked on fixing them systematically. She works 1:1 with patient and very knowledgeable on eastern herbs, western herbs, acupuncture treatment, homeopathic medicine, and IV treatments. She cured my Acid reflux completely and treated my immune to a point where I was completely off allergy medications. Today I feel better, energetic, and I take naturopathic treatments to stay healthy. If you are living a myth that in Arizona you have to live with allergies than think again, go see Dr. Khalsa.

When I started coming to Dr. Khalsa office I was living with migraines twenty out of thirty days a month. I have had them since I was seven. I had learned to deal with them since I was told for many years they were just allergies or tension. I was diagnosed with migraines in the late 90’s and tried all the traditional medications. Some helped, but not for very long and they only relieved the pain, never taking them away. When I started menopause the migraines were horrible. I had spent a year trying new drugs that didn’t work. I remember going to see my grandson for two weeks and I spent most of it with migraines. I came home determined to try alternative medicine.
I feel so blessed to have found you Dr. Khalsa! We tried several more conservative routes, but now my monthly IV therapy of B’s and C’s keep my migraines away!! I am so happy! I know I have tried to push it out to two months, but I find the migraines begin to creep back into my life, so monthly it is!
Dr. Khalsa has also helped me with the pain in my ankle that I shattered almost ten years ago. The acupuncture and heat lamp feel so good and help to relieve the pain. I am so thankful for Dr. Khalsa’s help especially since I am allergic to pain medications. Her talent has truly given me a new life. I can spend time with my family and enjoy life again! Thank you for everything you have done for me Dr. Khalsa! You gave me my life back!
