When I came in to the office I had pain for over 30 years. I started hurting when I was a teenager and it has been worse the last ten years. I have been to many doctors for it: they gave me drugs that helped the pain. They told me it was all in my head, but then they said it was fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. I could not even take care of my own house and felt useless. I always felt sleepy with the medicines and did not want to get out of bed. I could not remember things very well.
My friend made me come in. I did not want to because I did not think anything would work. I thought I had tried everything and it did not work. When I talked to the doctor I thought it was too much money. My friend said it will work, she knows people who had come in already and she helped me pay for it. It was a lot of bottles, enzymes she said, and I was really confused. I got a written report and followed that.
It was not very long after that when I started feeling better. I have gone off a lot of my medications because I don’t need them. I am remembering better now and feel like getting up and taking care of my house. I am grateful to my friend for making me go. The doctor says to stick with it because I am going to feel better than this. This is the best I have felt in a long time. My friend wants me to go on a trip with her. I am thinking I might go.
I had been to the physical therapist for my frozen shoulder and after several treatments we had gotten nowhere. You did acupuncture on me and next thing I knew I could move my shoulder again. I could hardly believe it. And yes, I did go back to physical therapy like you told me to so I can keep my shoulder moving. I had never heard of doing acupuncture for a frozen shoulder and am so glad I found you! JG
I had complex regional pain syndrome/sympathetic reflex dystrophy. I had thought many times about killing myself because of the constant pain. You got me out of pain in a month. It is now a month and a half later and my leg is healing too! I feel like I have a new life!
I came to see Dr. Gephart after dealing with several Neurologists and other doctors for a Lightning shock I received back in mid 2010. I came to her in mid 2012 with several issues, a list in fact, and in just a few weeks she was making improvements on me the others hadn't even clued into. By following her instructions as closely as possible (I really want to be pain free and medically the other doctors said I was out of options) I began to make serious progress. Today I am suffering from a mere 30 percent on most days, of the pain I had when I first came to Dr. Gephart. The body still has healing to do, and that will take time. Her knowledge and outside of the box thinking was very key to helping to identify the factors causing the pains I have. Had I known of Dr. Gephart first off, I would have gone to her in the first place instead of wasting all that valuable healing time seeking those doctors that just prolonged my pain. Not only has she helped me with the Lightning damages, but Dr. Gephart has also helped me to treat my ADD through the use of Loomis Enzyme therapy. After 20 years, I no longer have to take my Ritilan and I function daily with little to no issues. The treatment for both of my issues is NATURAL, and in my opinion is much better than being on all the medicines. Dr. Gephart listens to you, and treats YOU.I felt hopeless on the Lightning damages, but now I have hope again!! Thank you Dr. Gephart! Give her a try, you will not regret it. JD
My husband went to Healing Hands Chiropractic because he had sharp stabbing pain, digestive problems, brain fog, insomnia, irritability, and debilitating fatigue. He had to drag himself to work. Adult conversations were very limited. I just wanted him to be out of pain and have his quality of life back. At first it was very frustrating, but as time went on we saw astounding results. The pain lessened. He started taking charge of the food and caffeine he consumed. The most noticeable improvement was with the enzyme therapy. It seemed like a true miracle. The brain fog lifted, the pain which was relentless subsided. I had my husband back after years of searching for answers. I'm truly amazed and so grateful for the day I found Dr. Carol Gephart.
I came in to see Dr. Gephart to get acupuncture for the pain from my fibromyalgia. I have had pain for years and physical therapy, diets, and pills I had taken for it did not help the pain. I had been in a car wreck a lot of years ago and have not felt good since then. It hurt in my arms and legs it seemed like a different place every day. I did not sleep good and I was always tired, even when I got out of bed. The pain would not go away.
I was sure that she could not help me even though she said she could. It was hard to keep up with the pills she gave me, but I did my best. She said the enzymes would help me. I did not do it perfect, but I still got better. As I got well she kept talking to me about taking good care of myself and doing what she asked.
I am feeling really good now. I can do my house work and still have energy to go places. I don’t hurt all the time and feel like doing things now. Thank you Dr. Gephart for not giving up on me.
For two years I was unable to perform (erectile dysfunction) like I wanted to. Then after I started coming here and seeing Dr. Gephart we talked and she gave me enzymes and some other supplements. I did not feel uncomfortable talking to her and she made me laugh and relax about it. She made me feel like I did not need to be embarrassed about my problem. After a few weeks things started to work like they should. There is help for this problem.
I would like to let you know how much you have changed my life. When I first came to you I had given up hope of ever becoming healthy mentally and physically. I had been to places like mayo clinic where I was seen by nine doctors over a couple of weeks, only to find that they just wanted to try and solve my problems with more drugs. St. Louis hospitals had the same answer. More drugs with side effects as bad as the problem. This went on for over 3 years until I met you. You approached my manic depression and dementia with a different attitude. You wanted to cure the source of the problem. With your acupuncture, enzyme therapy, NET, chiropractic, nutrition, and diet things started to happen. I was starting to see a difference.
It was hard at first complying with what you requested but seeing the results made it easier. You have even given me the answer of beating my diabetes. I went for 5 years to try and find out what was causing my left side to hurt. I took all the tests the doctors could give me and they had no answer. Amazingly you told me in 30 seconds why it was hurting and then fixed it. It really makes me wonder about these so called M.D.'s. Also when I have muscle, back, and pain problems you know just the right thing to relieve it.
My name is ***, I am 25 years old and I have been tolerating (Most people say they suffer from, but that makes me think I'm saying I let it control my life. And I won't have that) RSD/CRPS on a daily basis.
Please bear with me on this. I don’t quiet remember the exact dates on when surgeries happened or when the big milestones where. This is just a brief statement on all the things I have been thru in my life and what Dr. Carol Gephart has done for me. She is truly an angel in my eyes.
I was diagnosed with RSD at the age of 11: I was then diagnosed with the other part CRPS around the age of 15. Just in case you are not familiar with it, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome is a progressive disease of the autonomic nervous system (the sympathetic nervous system). The pain is constant, intense: It also involves swelling, skin changes, and extreme sensitivity. The pain is burning, stabbing, a shocking feeling, and needles. I can only describe it as a muscle spasm: it is similar to 5 or more Charlie horses in one muscle. My case traveled quickly; it started in my left ankle and now it is from my toes on my left foot to my hips, both hips, and my lower back.
There are some real unflattering symptoms to this problem, abnormal nail growth, increased or decreased in hair growth (in my case it is increased).
When I was 11 years old, I had an accident that changed my life. I stepped out of the shower and when I went to turn to get my towel, my left foot stayed flat on the floor as the rest of my body turned to get the towel off of the chair. I then heard a popping noise and I was on the ground in pain. I never felt something like this when it happened, it really scared me. My mom came to help me, and got me off of my leg. It swelled up bad, it started turning colors. My parents decided to wait a little bit before we went to the hospital to see if it would go away in the next couple days. We already had a pair of crutches from a family member’s previous injury so I used those in school the next couple days. My ankle wasn’t getting any better in the next week or so. My mom took me to our family doctor, he told us it was a sprain and it would eventually get better.
When it wasn’t getting any better we all started to worry about it. We saw so many doctors in those first 6 months after my injury. About 8 or 9 months after I hurt myself we had a neurologist tell us that it is RSD go home and live with it. With that "AMAZING" advice my mom went home and started researching. She never exactly told me in the beginning what she read or found out about it. She hid a lot from me in my young age with this problem. We saw many different doctors in the central Illinois area. Many of them did nerve block shots, and a lot of physical therapy. Physical therapy never helped me the way we hoped it to help, in the end it made me worse. The nerve blocks I got at a younger age never worked the way we hoped either, but I dealt with all the experiments and surgeries we were offered to try to get my pain down. We found one in St. Louis at Shriner's children's hospital. I was with him from the age 13-20. He did help me a lot at that time. Over the years I have had 3 spinal epidurals; they would numb me from the waist down and then have advanced physical therapy on my leg. Over 20 nerve block shots, I have a spinal cord stimulator implant. I have been on many, many different medicines for pain, swelling, anti-depressants, and nerve meds. You name it I have most likely been on.
So that’s a little about me and some of what my childhood has consisted of.
When my family and I moved to southern Illinois my dad found and started going to Healing Hands Chiropractic. He told Dr. Gephart all about me; she informed him she has helped people with what I have. I started seeing her on my own about a year ago. We have done back adjustments, foot and leg adjustments. She changed my diet and put me on enzymes and vitamins. The changing of my diet I would have to say is the hardest; I am working on it. it’s mainly my willpower that gets in my way. Anyways with all the changes she has helped me with and everything my pain has gone down tremendously. When I first started seeing a positive result I couldn’t wrap my head around that something so natural is helping me this much, and everything else I have tried didn’t do anything compared to this. I still have some pain, but over the months it is getting less and less. When I have flare ups my recovery time is amazingly short. It is nice not to be down for days when all I would do is clean my house.
I don’t know how I am ever going to be able to repay Dr. Gephart. She is amazing at what she does. She means to the world to me for what she has done for me. Between her and my amazing support team from all of my family, I am unstoppable at what I can do.

Thank you SO MUCH!! Not only are you helping me with the treatment, but also with your advice & the way you explain things to me: the way you are teaching & enlightening me. I was able to position myself just right last night & got a really good nights sleep. You understand what I am going thru & explain it to me in such a way that I understand it now too. So again, thank you. I know God led me to you & I’m grateful that He did. I am looking forward to seeing you next week! Sincerely, HK
I just want to thank you again. Many times over! You not only have helped me physically, but spiritually & emotionally. No wonder I was drawn to you. I’m very grateful God crossed our paths. And anything I email you, you are more than welcome to use as a testimonial on your website. You can use my initials or my name. Either way is fine with me...
There was really a breakthrough for me yesterday as we talked of God, my mother & my dad. Still working on the dad thing. But my spirit feels so much lighter regarding mom & God. God whispers softly but we don’t always listen or we think we hear wrong. Thank you so much again! You are such a blessing! I’m learning from you & I like to learn... You & Brenda are both in my daily prayers... It will probably be a couple weeks before I can get back to you...
Oh, and that throat spray works REALLY well! Thanks for that too! I had previously been buying all my supplements & herbal needs from a place on line. But will no longer be doing that. Have decided to buy solely thru you as the needs arise.
My ankles had been swelling and my doctor told me that I needed water pills. I had to stay home in the morning after I took them. Someone I know told me that Dr. Gephart knew how to get ankles down again. I went to see her and she told me what to do. She got me feeling a lot better with the enzymes, and fixed the problems with my ankles. After I got my ankles down again, she sent me back to my doctor and they let me stop taking the water pills. I am glad to get off of the pills if I don’t need them. It is great to feel good too!
I had pain in my back so bad I could not walk standing straight. The only time I was out of pain was when I was laying down. I had had surgery and it left me like this. After Dr. Gephart worked on my back for about 4 weeks I was able to stand straight and walk for a while without any pain. I am so thankful to find a doctor that is qualified in so many fields of healing for the body. I would recommend her to anybody. She is a wonderful person and doctor.
Dr. Gephart is nothing short of amazing! She is easily the best chiropractor I have been to in the course of nine years and in several states. She has a gift for palpating and discerning where problems are - sometimes problems I didn't realize i had til she fixed them. She was even able to adjust my young nonverbal son when he was having problems with his legs and feet. I would recommend her to anyone for any problem!
I would recommend Dr. Gephart to anyone. To anyone who wants to get well.
Anybody who can become a Cardiac Nurse and then go BACK to school to become a Chiropractic Primary Care Doctor has go to be amazing. And Dr. Gephart is just that, amazing! Because of her expertise and knowledge and method of Chiropractic, she can often solve your issure/problem with only a few treatments. As compared to 20 or more that some Chiropractors often require.
I firmly believe in Chiropractors and always have. They have helped me tremendously over the years and thru some very difficult times. But Dr. Gephart surpasses all others (no offense intended to any others.)
She also like to research and if she doesn't understand something, she look into it in depth. Knowledge is priceless. Especially when applied with wisdom and insight. Dr. Gephart treats the whole person. I now go to her for maintenance, about once a month, unless something else comes up, like it did recently. And she got me thru that as well.
She doesn't try to get every penny you have. She simply tries to make better and to help you help yourself. Thank you Dr. Gephart for continuing to improve the quality of my life! HK
My whole family had been kept up for weeks when my new baby got colic. She cried for hours and we were all so tired. My neighbor said a chiropractor might help. We took her in to Dr. Gephart and laid her down on the table face down. Dr. Gephart touched her spine and when she got to the top, my baby relaxed and fell asleep right on the table. She slept for hours and the whole family is able to sleep now!
