Whether you have been on the path of optimizing your well-being for decades or a health crisis has prompted you to reconsider your options, it is useful to ask yourself, "How can I be healthy and happy for as long as I'm here on Earth?"

When I first started seeing Dr. Connie Amundson, I had been abused by the medical system, being told that I had incurable conditions that could only be treated with large numbers of prescription drugs. However, the treatments I was getting from traditional medicine only made my conditions worse. I had lost a lot of hope but was still determined to find alternative solutions.

Working with Dr. Connie has changed my life in so many ways. I have hope once more, and I am able to do things I thought I would never be able to do again. The work with Connie helped me to get my spirit back. I feel like the improvements made have gone beyond physical changes, to also include spiritual and emotional growth. People have said that they can see a change in me, my eyes are alive again.

I now have a much healthier lifestyle and have seen a great deal of improvement in my pre-existing conditions. I know that I still have more growth ahead of me, but I feel the work has enabled me to make healthier choices in all aspects of my life.

One of the highest compliments that I can give to Connie is that she truly has the spirit of a caregiver. As a client of Connie’s, I have felt nothing but compassion and caring from her as a practitioner. After being treated horribly by many practitioners in the healing professions, it was truly a gift to have the chance to work with Connie. She never blamed the person in pain for their circumstances and always encouraged the client to see healing as a process. She invests in her clients, and that compassion shows in her work, and I for one have definitely been able to reap the benefits.
