“After suffering from numerous allergies, asthma and chronic sinusitis for over 25 years, I became very sick in November, 2016. I was suffering from acute asthma attacks and worsening sinus infections and couldn’t even get temporarily relief via my normal route of going to my Pulmonologist and ENT. After going through 7 invasive sinus surgeries over the years, almost continual prescriptions of oral steroids and antibiotics and still not feeling anything but temporary relief I felt very defeated. I suffered from many of the common symptoms of these chronic diseases such as “brain fog”, lethargy, irritability, depression, memory/recall problems, etc. as over the years of subtle declining health I hadn’t realized just how unacceptably sick I had become.
A friend told me about Dr. Erin and Functional Medicine so I thought I had nothing to lose if I tried it. I began seeing Dr. Erin in February 2017. Her holistic approach was unlike any doctor I had been to before. She strives to identify the underlying reasons people are sick rather than treating the symptoms with prescription medications. Initially, and to establish a benchmark, I took a saliva test and had comprehensive blood work done. The results indicated I was in a bad, possibly dangerous state of health. Dr. Erin recommended 2 additional blood tests which would determine particular food allergies. When the results came in it turned out I was dairy, sugar and gluten intolerant (but did not have Celiac disease) in addition to ~ 40 other specific food allergies. It was also determined that I had a “leaky gut”.
Dr. Erin put me on many different supplements to boost/repair my blood flow, immune system, lipid panel, hormone and adrenal support plus 2 supplements to help tissue repair (abdominal wall perforations (“leaky gut”) and lung barrier) as well as recommended a gluten, dairy, sugar free diet and the avoidance of the ~ 40 food allergens specific to me. She told me this would be a long process (~ 12 months) and that I needed to be patient. Needless to say, this was a MAJOR change in my diet and it took me about 6-7 days to absorb all this information and to effectuate these diet changes.
After 3 months of following the new protocol, and no prescription medications from my other doctors (other than continuing to use my prescribed inhalers for my asthma), we retested my blood. The results were phenomenal. Even though I knew I felt better and had regained my life, seeing the blood test results proved unequivocally that Dr. Erin’s method of treating me was working. And working fast.
While I still have a ways to go, I am ecstatic by my results thus far. Without Dr. Erin’s commitment to treating the body as a whole and her kind and compassionate way of guiding me through this process, I know I would be home bound medicating my symptoms rather than living my life again. I encourage anyone who feels hopeless due to chronic health problems which seem unsolvable to try Functional Medicine with Dr. Erin.”
“I had real bad allergies I tried it the lazer bax and its fast painless. I am well.”
“Erin is very meticulous about what she does and how she handles her patients. She looks after and is concerned about her patients. Her knowledge is assuring, and I believe she gives the greatest care. The adjustments are awesome, long overdue and much appreciated.”
“Dr Erin has given me a new and healthy life. 10 years of being sick with Colitis and the effects of epilepsy as a child left me very Ill After only a few treatments and working with the BAX 3000 I feel like a different person. I have tried many modalities in 10 years and have gotten the fastest and best results with Dr Erin. Her knowledge and interest makes my treatments a pleasure.”
“Dr. Erin does amazing work! When you think of chiropractic, that’s not what Dr. Erin does. She treats your whole system as complete picture, figuring out what is out of balance that is causing a long line of other issues. She is gentle on the chiropractic table (does NOT whack & crack) and uses dietary and hormonal therapies to correct the whole system – not just band-aid your symptoms.
They also have laser thermography, which in my opinion is far better than a mammogram in detecting changes in the breast, without all the cancer causing radiation. Why subject yourself to cancer causing radiation, to find out if you have breast cancer? If they see an issue on the thermogram, they can do further tests from that point. Very common sense. I feel blessed to have found such a great, caring clinic in the DFW area!”
“I have only been seeing Dr. Erin for a few weeks, but have already had great results! I have suffered from migranes/stress headaches for years and have seen everyone from neurologists to message therapists and NO ONE has helped as much as Dr. Erin has thus far. I am very pleased and will continue seeing Dr. Erin!”
“When I first visited Van Family Chiropractic, I was suffering debilitating symptoms of high blood sugar and high blood pressure. Erin did some blood work and a saliva test which discovered that I was having problems with my blood sugar. I was dizzy, nauseated, tired, and even had a racing heart at times. She recommended supplements, and I had frequent adjustments at first. When I first started taking the supplement for blood sugar support, I took 8 per day. I am now down to 4 per day, and hope to be down to 2 per day before the end of the summer. I have really worked on my sugar intake, however now I can tolerate sugar. I am so elated that Erin and her staff helped me avoid prescription medications. She also discovered that my hormones were not balanced either, so I’m taking progesterone. That has been very helpful as well. Needless to say, I feel way better. I am feeling better than I have felt in 2 or 3 years. The kind and caring staff are a joy to see every time I come in for a visit.”
“I wanted to give a big thanks to Dr. Erin and Anna. I went to bed with the ball of my foot feeling bruised. I woke up and could not stand or balance myself because the pain was unbearable; I thought I broke my foot. We called Anna and asked if at all possible and it was, even though their day was packed with appointments.
My husband and son had to carry me in to see her and I was able to walk out on my own. Amazing! No need for expensive ER visits, x-rays and walking boot. A really good adjustment with an explanation and recommended exercises will prevent it from happening again. Now that is Fantastic in my books. Our family loves Van Family Chiropractic!!!”
“I have been to many chiropractors in my 38 years. I have finally found the best person to treat my entire family. I have seen a difference in just a short period of time. She is very knowledgeable and isn’t trying to push you out the door after 5 minutes to get to he next client. My kids call her the “fun chiropractor” for a reason. I look forward to many years of care even though we drive 45 minutes one way. Thank you!”
“I brought my teenage granddaughter to Dr Erin because she had injured her shoulder. The injury was on the weekend and the pain was bad on Monday so she went to another Dr, got xrays, was told no bones were broken, was told to take an anti-inflammatory, and her arm was put in a sling. My granddaughter could not move her arm up without pain. The next day she went to Dr Erin and after one treatment she had complete freedom of movement, threw away her sling and did cartwheels to show off!”
“We were referred to Dr. Erin in March 2010. Our son had broken his tibia and was finally out of a cast. But he was having a lot of pain in his lower back. After physical therapy treatments and an MRI we discovered a bulging disc. The PT treatments were helping but not taking the pain away. The Dr prescribed anti inflamatory.
He has been under the care of Dr. Erin for about 2 months and the difference is incredible. He is a lot more pain free. His energy level is up and he is standing taller. His personality is back to the old self before he broke his leg.
He decided to see just how good Dr. Erin was and the 3rd day after he started seeing her, he fell off a high place and dislocated his shoulder. Dr. Erin saw him about 2 hours after it happened and she treated him and he walked out of there with full range of motion and went to the deer lease and had a great weekend.”
“I have suffered from the pain of migraines for 26 years. I have gone to ophthalmologists and expensive neurologists since I was a little girl, spent thousands on MRIs and useless medicines. About six years ago, my eye pain became much worse, and my migraines uncontrollable. My life has suffered so much more since then. Everything I did or ate triggered pain in my eyes and followed with a migraine. I became a very sad and irritable person, even a bit grouchy at times. Everyone got on my nerves, especially my husband. I had to constantly apologize to him, thank goodness for his love and patience with me, and for Dr. Erin.
As a recent graduate in a corporate engineering company, I have had to really prove my-self. I have to stay on my toes and keep up with the competition. There is no excuse for someone who is not feeling good and cannot show up to meetings or cannot meet deadlines. I was missing so many days at work that I felt like people could not count on me. I found Dr. Erin online, in my last attempt to find what was wrong with my eyes. The first day I had to fill out so much paper work. I have gone to so many doctors before, and no one had asked me nearly as many questions. Even when I met her, the questions continued. She really wanted to figure out what was wrong with me, and not just give me pain killers (as many other doctors have done in the past). We then established that my miss-aligned neck was the trigger to my eye pain. It was a structure problem that did not require MRIs or nasty medicine. I started going to her as often as I could, twice a week if possible. I can now say that I am a very happy person, do not yell at my husband as much anymore, and I have had perfect attendance at work. Sometimes I get busy with work and cannot make it, huge mistake. My health goes down-hill. So I try to make it a priority. I have a life now, a normal one. Thank you Dr. Erin!”
“Erin and her staff go above and beyond to ensure that each patient is functioning at his or her optimum level of health. Her knowledge, expertise, and attention to detail set her apart from other health care professionals. She listens to her patients and spends the time to provide the best quality care for each person who comes into her office. If you are searching for someone to assist your body in healing, you have come to the right place. Not only are Dr. Erin and her staff up to date with best practices, but also they care about the patients they work with and take the time to make sure each person is equipped to achieve optimum overall health. My children and I are forever grateful to her and her coworkers for helping us get back on the right track with our health!”
“I was at my wits end with tension headaches. I had gotten off my 20 mg lexapro by seeing a hynotist but they came back. I didn’t want to go back on medication so I searched the internet for help. I found Dr. Erin’s website and, thankfully, she was not far from where I lived. I have been more than impressed by her. I think she is amazing and I think everyone in the world would profit from seeing her. I am looking forward to being headache-free for the rest of my life. Thank you, Dr. Erin!”
“This is the only doctor’s office I have ever looked forward to coming to for an appointment! No matter how I’m feeling, I always leave there encouraged with a renewed hope for my health.
I initially went for a thermogram but after my saliva and blood tests I found there were several other issues going on that needed to be addressed. Frankly, those issues scared me. But between Dr. Karen and Dr. Erin and Anna, they gave me confidence that we could change things and to not give up hope. They devised a “battle plan” for each issue and after a few months of detox and supplements, my numbers are continuing to improve drastically. And I feel better than I have for years! Plus I lost 17 lbs as a plus!
Van Family Chiropractic treats the whole person, not just the symptom, but the root cause of the problem. And the best part of all is the fact that they make you feel like you’re the most important patient of all! They truly care about you!
I know God sent Van Family Chiropractic as my “Army of Angels” to restore my health so I can be a better me! Look out world, here I come! Thank you, my angels, for the honest communication and the wisdom to know what to do and the love you show in so many ways from the moment I walk in the door till the time I leave. God bless you always!”
“I have been seeing Dr. Erin for a while now due to my seizures. In the year and a half I have been seeing her I have not had any seizures, and my migraines have been cut down as well.
I have really been educated as to the many things that Chiropractoric care can help and/or cure. Dr. Erin is very knowledgable and caring. You do not feel like a number, you geniuenly get personal care.”
“My son had been experiencing headaches due to post concussion syndrome after his fourth concussion from football. We had been to the neurologist who indicated his MRI was clear with no signs of permanent damage. The neurologist encouraged my son to increase his activity level and get ready for basketball. However, every time my son tried to increase his activity, his headache increased. We prayed diligently about what direction we should take. A co-worker, whose daughter is in chiropractic school in Dallas, had raved about how Dr. Erin had helped another daughter with headaches and other health issues, so I asker her for Dr. Erin’s number. I called the neurologist, a physical therapist and Dr. Erin. The neurologist indicated my son should just take some Aleve. The physical therapist thought visiting Dr. Erin might be a good idea. We were very frustrated and my son was slipping into a depressive state due to the continued headaches and not being able to participate in sports. We dropped everything, drove to Dallas and saw Dr. Erin the next two days. The headaches were greatly reduced after the first day of treatment and even more so the next day. Dr. Erin was wonderful with my son and explained everything she was doing to increase his brain function. We found Dr. Erin very patient-friendly and personable and look forward to improved health! We are thankful God led us to her and that she is allowing God to use her as an instrument of healing.”
“Dr. Erin Saved our Daughters ability to speak! After a seizure, our daughter Heidi was unable to speak, and at first could not even read or write. We had every test in the world run on her including MRI and everything was coming back “normal”. This was good of course, but she was still not able to talk. We began educating ourselves about what was happening, all the while that we were all fighting with the fear that she may have lost her abilities to speak and read… possibly forever. She was taking supplements, and we were trying to get with as many different doctors as possible to get her help, but no one seemed confident they could help her. Finally, after researching online about functional medicine, we discovered Dr. Erin. We liked what we saw, and brought her in. After a very unique and tailored full blood work and other tests and a VERY expert analysis of them, Dr. Erin was able to tell us things about Heidi that NO ONE had been able to tell us before, even with previous blood tests. Whats more, she was confident she could get Heidi talking again soon using her knowledge of Functional Neurology. We brought her in for her therapy, and suddenly one morning SHE WAS TALKING! Her other abilities came back slowly as well, and she is now on the road to full recovery along with a program to help her correct the underlying causes in her biochemistry that put her at risk of this episode in the first place. We could not be more happy and relieved! We are coming to Dr. Erin now for our own health issues as well as referring our family and friends whenever we get the chance!”
“I have been going to Dr. Erin for about two months. I was in search of someone who could answer questions regarding certian health issues that no one else seemed to be able to answer. I only received generic help until now. Dr. Erin has been able to give me real answers and I now have a plan to help me start living a quality of life that I have been in search of.”
“If you are searching for help for your medical condition and traditional doctors are not working, please come see Dr. Van. She is gentle and caring. She will not give up until she can help. I was suffering from Graves’ dermopathy when I was referred to Dr. Van. My hyperthyroid caused the protein to build up in my skin causing it to be lumpy and red. The traditional doctors had no cures or help for my condition. Dr. Van used a cold laser and adjustments along with suppliments to cure my condition. The large lump on my leg and in my feet are completely gone. Praise the Lord for Dr. Van!”
“I would recommend Dr. Erin for all children and adults! She has helped me and my preschooler tremendously with many things: me for neurological issues and other chronic illnesses that no one else has been able to help with; for allergy/sinus/behavior problems; and just exceptional overall care that is much better than any other doctor we have seen. Also, whenever any child falls down, bring them in to see Dr. Erin immediately if they are limping in any way or saying something is hurting other than a scrape (or just for an overall check) This is very important, because it is probable that one of the bones has come out of it’s joint and causing pain; she has a knack for knowing exactly what is going on with a patient (a wonderful gift!) It would be a very nice thing for your child if you would just play it safe and take the child to see Dr. Erin, and she will fix it. She and Anna and Pam are very welcoming and make patients feel like a part of the family. They also go above and beyond to make young children feel very comfortable and actually look forward to their appointments (as do I). There is a lot of healing going on in this office, that’s for sure.”
“Dr. Erin has been working with my severely autistic son after we were in a car accident a few months ago and I have been very grateful. She and Dr. Karen have been able to work with him gently yet effectively. Both Dr. Erin and Dr. Karen have worked with autism before and it shows. With my son being non-verbal, life is not always easy. Sometimes my son does not want to lay on the table. So, both doctors will get on his level to work with him; whether it is on the floor or on the couch in the waiting room. Both Dr. Erin and Dr. Karen, as well as Anna, the receptionist, have all shown that we are not just patients on charts; they genuinely care about us.”
“I came to Dr. Erin’s after four months of being unable to turn my head to the right or left very far. After two weeks, I realized how bad I was when I was actually able to turn my head to back up in reverse in my car. Dr. Erin determined the cause very quickly and after a quick neurological exam had determined exactly where the problem was located. As I said, within two weeks I was able to do something I hadn’t been able to for the previous four months! I would highly recommend Dr. Erin to anyone, as I had tried many different in the four months leading up to my decision to come in. To have made as much process in such a short time, after trying so many different things is truly a testament to Dr. Erin looking beyond the problem. It is worth bringing in your whole family in to see what she can help with. It might be something you didn’t even know was there!”
“I have been communicating and seeing Dr. Erin in just 3 months, and I have seen dramatic changes with my health. I have felt sooooo much better and I have my energy back!!!!! And it has to do with the natural supplements that I take instead of just drugs. Drugs have worse side effects than what they are suppose to be for treating symptoms… and the problem is still not being addressed. I have really appreciated Dr. Erin’s willingness to want to help me. I am really looking forward to more exciting results to happen!!!!!”
“I have been dealing with post concussion syndrome for 15 months now as a result of 5 concussions from football. I had headaches every day and became so sensitive to movement I could hardly walk or ride in cars. Since I started seeing Dr. Erin 4 weeks ago, I have not had a single headache and I have become much less sensitive to movement. Dr. Erin has truly turned my life around when I thought there was nothing I could do but suffer through it. I highly recommend Dr. Erin and her staff to anyone going through post concussion syndrome; she turned my life around and can do the same for you. I am so thankful for Dr. Erin and her amazing staff and what they have done for me and my family!”
“My son Devyn 6yrs old has absent seizure eplipsy and has suffered for 2 yrs now with frequent episodes that has affected his ability to learn and focus in school. We have been seeing Erin for 2 weeks and can already see a BIG difference in our son Devyn. He went from having mulitple seizures a day to a few a week now and we are only on week 2. My son, Myself and my Husband are VERY excited to be working with Erin. Her knowledge and the time she takes to actually talk to you if very very refreshing. She’s the first Dr’s office I’ve called that the Dr. actually got on the phone to talk to me, before ever meeting me or us having an appointment. I recommend her to all my friends, especially those with Children. My son would do all but kick and scream anytime we would go to the Dr with him, but not with Erin. He gets EXCITED about his appointments and we look forward to every visit. Erin not only helps Devyn but also helps educate me, and that is priceless. We are so appreciative of her and her office staff who make each visit AMAZING!”
“I am so pleased with the progress my son is making…… For the first time I received an e-mail from my son’s teacher praising his acheivments! Check it Out!
‘Will had a great day! This was his best day in a long while! He was focused and was really into his work. He is so proud of himself. Even several of the kids noticed that he was so quiet and working so hard. I hope he continues this for tomorrow. I love to see his face when he is successful and works the way he wants to work. Have a great afternoon!’-Mrs. Sudduth, D. Elementary”
“Dr. Erin has been seeing myself and my 4 children for almost a year now. Two of my children had been taking allergy medicine for the 9 years that we lived here and could not miss a day or they would be sick. This was a huge concern for me and I knew I needed to get them out of that cycle. Dr. Erin successfully was able to strengthen their immune systems and they were off the pills after the first month and haven’t taken one for 10 months now and they are allergy free! She has helped my daughters’ acne disappear by cleaning out their systems and is helping my son overcome his Epstein-Barr virus. I have 2 daughters going on missions to Central America for 18 months and she helped their stomachs become strong and able to withstand the sickness and stomach problems that can occur there. My daughter wrote home and told me that everyone around her is having stomach problems and she isn’t! What a relief as their mother to hear this! She is a fun doctor and we look forward to our visits. I refer all my friends to her because I have seen first hand that what she does WORKS!”
“I have been dealing with sinus issues for years. Along with the sinus issues were debilitating headaches! I have seen every kind of doctor and been on all kinds of medication. I decided since nothing else was working, but only seemed to make me feel horrible, I would try the natural, holistic approach. I stumbled on this website one night while googling sinus headaches. It was the best internet find I have ever come across!! The entire staff are friendly and caring. The adjustments and supplements that Dr. Erin has me doing are amazing! I haven’t felt this good in years. I recommend her to everyone. Although my commute to her office is an hour long, I always look forward to going. I can not put into words how happy I am to have found such an amazing place!”
“The team at Van Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center has given me the keys to reclaim my health and my life, and I’m so grateful to have found them.
When I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Brock back in 2016, it was an act of pure desperation, one last-ditch effort to find answers. I was a walking corpse. I was barely 100 pounds and rapidly losing weight, most of my hair had fallen out, I was in constant agonizing pain, and I was on the verge of being unable to walk. No one knew why. I’d seen countless doctors, most of whom tried to force drugs on me that just made me sicker. Some told me it was all in my head, and one even accused me of lying about my symptoms because my test results didn’t match what she thought the diagnosis should be.
I’d been sick for years, and I’d been warned I was facing organ failure. My husband and I didn’t think I was going to make it to 2017. We got my will in order and just tried to make the most of every second until goodbye finally came. But then Dr. Brock was able to diagnose me with an autoimmune disorder. He started my treatment immediately, a treatment that thankfully didn’t involve drugs. I made it to 2017. And then I made it to 2018.
Dr. Brock, Dr. Erin, and the entire team have worked tirelessly to help me recover and live a normal life. They listen to me when I voice questions or concerns and always adapt to my feedback with the utmost attention and care. I’m walking and gaining weight and building muscle, my organs are functioning again, and I have hope of seeing 2019 and beyond. I’ve even been able to accomplish athletic feats in the last few months that I would never have dreamed of when I was younger and healthy.
I don’t know what I was hoping for when I started this journey with their amazing team, but they’ve given me my life back. They listen. They care. They’ve put in countless hours to learn about the human body and treat the whole patient. It has been a long journey toward recovery, and the team at Van Family Chiropractic has been with me every step of the way. I have never trusted medical professionals the way I trust them.”
