I was affected by the constant pain of severe, debilitating headaches I’ve always paid attention to diet and been active physically.  I’m also a worrier  and a nurturer and take on others problems as well as my own.   I carry most of my stress in my upper back and didn’t realize that the tension was accumulating until it could no longer be ignored.  I’ve tried massage, acupuncture and other avenues but didn’t get any lasting relief until I saw Sukhi.  At first it was for upper body stress and much later for severe, debilitating headaches. My entire life was affected by the constant pain and made me realize that I cannot let it get to this point again.  We do live in a world with varying degrees of tension.  To be able to deal with our daily stresses we must keep our entire bodies in balance.  Over the last few years I realize that I’ve been RE-active with my body instead of PRO-active.   As soon as my back was in proper alignment from the adjustments my headaches stopped and I had much more energy.

The pain was just an indicator of imbalance within my system and with proper help the body could heal itself.   I now realize that in order to maintain a healthy life style I must be PRO-active and make regular adjustments just another part of my routine.  I hope anyone suffering from headaches as I did considers proper regular adjustments as a real solution to total body care rather than oral band aids to mask the problem.  With Sukhi’s help I will now work with my body rather than fighting it.

Thank you, Sukhi.

We were introduced to Dr. Sukhi by my best friend, who had attended one of his seminars and was his patient for a few weeks.  We were out for coffee one night just the two of us when my husband called me and said our older daughter (3 ½ at the time) Kimiya is having one of her cough attacks again and that I should get home as soon as possible.  I just lost it and started crying as I knew what that meant, many sleepless nights with her not being able to catch her breath and turning blue in her lips, trips to the hospital and pediatric clinic.  My best friend insisted I call Dr. Sukhi and leave a message for an appointment for the next day (February 13, 2009). The next morning Kate called me and fit us into their busy schedule and on that day our lives began to change.  His adjustments changed Kimiya into a whole new child, she had not been able to attend preschool, or any child gatherings as her immune system was so weak, she would catch a cold.  She had Mono, Bronchitis and was sick, on antibiotics EVERY WEEK, using an Asthma puffer 3 times daily, and pediatricians had confirmed she would have to use them for life…….

We met Dr. Sukhi, I explained Kimiya’s life from pregnancy to date to him and he gave me so much HOPE…real HOPE… I instantly trusted him and knew he would make her much better I just didn’t know he could change our life this much.  He told me to stop her meds immediately and she has not needed or had any since that day! Kimiya, Donya, and I drove from Maple Ridge to West Vancouver for over a year to see Dr. Sukhi. She has started preschool, swimming lessons, playing at the park with no shortness of breath. I even noticed a huge shift in her personality; she was more loving and open to all of us. Then in September 2009 Donya and I started seeing Dr. Sukhi as well, I have experienced so many changes in my body internally and externally my back pains went away.  Our 2 yr old Donya wouldn’t talk and started to talk within a month of getting adjusted, as he removed some of her blockages.  When we come to see Dr. Sukhi and the girls are getting adjusted I ask him all kinds of questions about life and daily challenges and he helps me through them with a few, but thoughtful  words.  I feel a sense of relief and calmness when we enter; to see Kate’s happy face and the great energy she has, to getting adjusted, and then we leave feeling amazing. I really feel like he helped us transform and change the path we were on and now we are on a Healthier, Happier, and more fulfilling path.

Thank you Dr. Sukhi and Kate, We Love you both…..

After my first week I started to notice immediate changes in my digestive system.  My bowel movements became more regular than I can remember. These were just a few of the physical changes I experienced. More profoundly, I was deeply impacted by other life changing events.

Some of you that read this may think that these events may have happened regardless, but let me assure you that the precision, direction and synchronicity could not have been better aligned.

While getting adjusted I noticed a book at Sunshine Life Studio that took my interest and early on I realized that I am very spiritual and through the reading connected with my inner spirit.

I was also at a job that although the work was very rewarding the setting was problematic, so much so that I thought that I was not going to survive. I was going home feeling upset on a frequent and persistent basis. However, I kept a positive attitude and the adjustments helped connect me and stay grounded. Spontaneously within a couple of months I was contacted from another organization and offered a position. I took the position and now realize that it is my dream job; exactly what I was asking for. All of this without even drawing up a single resume.

I also started to change my view on “aches and pains” that sometimes occur as I regularly stress my body with exercise such as running, weight training, yoga, softball and cycling. I used to go to the Chiropractor in another city I lived in to get rid of the aches and pain. Now, by getting adjusted on a weekly basis I realize that I don’t go to get rid of pain. Pain is an important message and sometimes tells us when things are wrong and other times can be an anomaly of no big importance. Pain is what it is. Now I realize that all experiences whether physical, mental or spiritual need to be integrated into the body and by getting adjusted regularly my body can better facilitate this process.

I can honestly say that since getting adjusted I am more connected to myself and who I am, why I am here and with life in general. I believe that getting regular adjustments has opened up a myriad of experiences for me and my family. I now think that the necessity of having a regular adjustment is much like that of eating a meal for sustenance. It needs to be experienced for optimal living.

I had always viewed chiropractic as a harsh and intrusive alignment of the spinal cord to alleviate pain. When I first came to see Dr. Muker I didn’t really know why I was there. So with this being my mindset about chiropractic, the first thing I told Sukhi about was a pain I had had in my shoulder for over a month. It is almost important to say that I was very depressed during this time, and I was so surprised to find myself totally opening up to Sukhi about how I was feeling, not just physically but emotionally as well.

My first few weeks visiting the Sunshine Life studio, was an amazing experience. I found Dr. Muker to be extremely easy to talk to and very understanding of what I had to say. During these sessions I noticed immediate improvements on my energy level and attitude. I was happier and feeling better about myself. I learned that my shoulder pain was due to a torn muscle that just wouldn’t heal because of the stress my body wasn’t integrating. Not long after seeing Sukhi for the first time my shoulder pain started to dull and then disappear as my body became more aligned and better integrated so that it was able to heal itself.

Now I’ve been seeing Sukhi every week for a couple years now and I have learned to listen to my body. Our bodies tell us exactly what we need but we forget to listen, or more precisely, we forget to feel. When I am tired I need sl eep, when I am hungry I need food, when I have sore muscles I need to stretch and relax, or when I feel agitated or depressed I need to be active. This is what my body tells me.

Seeing Sukhi has helped me achieve a higher quality of life through regular adjustments that center my body and to better integrate life experiences. I can highly recommend regular adjustments to anyone, in pain or not to experience a higher quality of life.

Before getting adjusted I wasn’t able to play an entire round of golf pain free. A trusted friend who has a similar vision of healthcare referred me to Sukhi, initially I was terrified of seeing chiropractor.  I had dealt with other alternative doctors before and agree with alternative healing and healthcare.  My concern was a bad back that was affecting the mobility of my legs.  The pain was debilitating, such that it was compromising my golfing.

My fear of disablement led me to spend lots of money on preventative care and year’s worth of treatment, but nothing produced results like getting adjusted did.  I received freedom from pain after one adjustment, it was miraculous.  My degenerative condition would have eventually required back surgery if left untreated, so my health transformation experienced from getting adjusted changed my life.

I get adjusted on a regular basis for wellness, and almost forgot that I use to live with pain because it has been gone for so long.  I think chiropractic is a gift.  It is a very gentle process, a holistic process that addresses the whole body.

Chiropractic assists the body to do the healing, to allow it to come into balance.  The adjustment has been a life altering experience.  I even come back early from holidays for an adjustment.  My husband, family and friends have all witnessed my transformation and I am passing on this new methodology to family and friends in sharing my vision of a fulfilling and active life.
