My Hearing Improved

As a “Keep Moving” Middletown featured participant, I was surprised to learn chiropractic care was a benefit of the twelve week initiative, but game to any tool that would help me on the road to improved fitness. What I discovered was you can’t operate at your fullest potential if your body is not in alignment.

In 1999, I was tested and medically diagnosed with diminished hearing. Several weeks ago, my husband was driving us on a westbound journey when he made an unplanned southbound turn. Instead of asking him why he turned, I said, “turning to avoid the train?” He looked at me with his eyes wide open and answered, “yes, but how did you know a train was coming?”

Although the train or track was not yet visible I told him, “I heard the bells ringing as the arms of crossing boards were coming down.” He and I were both shocked at my new found ability! For a brief second it was almost as if he had diminished hearing, because he asked me to repeat what I had just said. Through the expert adjustments of Dr. Hasemeier, my hearing has returned! Within a few office visits I began to notice other changes in my overall health as well. Dr. Hasemeier’s care exceeded my wildest expectations. He is extremely thorough and more than willing to teach patients alternative ways to obtain the keys of wellness, freeing us to reach for our true potential.

Lost 26 Pounds

During the Keep Moving Challenge, Dr. Rick Hasemeier has played a vital role in helping me regain my fitness level and has been a critical source of information and inspiration.

A spine X-ray showed my narrowed disc spacing, roughened joint surfaces and bone spurs. Using a thermal spinal scan Dr. Hasemeier taught me about my allergies, muscle imbalance ( which leads to spinal decay), and vertebral subluxations (nervous system disturbances). Using Nutrition Response Testing enabled Dr. Hasemeier to analyze what reflexes are working properly and which ones are under stress and formulate a plan to help me.

Getting adjustments three times a week and taking dietary supplements helped me get fit enough to exercise daily to lose 26 pounds in twelve weeks and lose 10% body fat. His nutritional guidance and subtle analogies and metaphors helped me eliminate what was interfering with my reaching my goals. His office is never crowded, I feelt comfortable that I could get in and out without being rushed. I enjoy the big open treatment room also; it is a very warm atmosphere to be treated in. I will forever be grateful that Dr. Hasemeier sponsored the Keep Moving Challenge. He can help you too.

I thought it was Voodoo at first…

I had gone to chiropractors before for chronic neck and back pain from an injury. They would adjust my neck and less than two weeks later I was back in pain and needing another adjustment. They just couldn’t make the adjustment stick. I couldn’t even drive without pain because every time I would need to turn my head to watch for oncoming traffic my neck would hurt. I just didn’t have any range of motion in my neck with out pain. I have had significant improvement since coming to Dr. Hasemeier, my adjustments are holding and I am without pain.

I also have had a lifelong problem with constipation. So my initial reason for seeing Dr. Hasemeier was for nutritional counseling, hoping he could help me with the constipation issue. I can happily say that after regular adjustments and nutritional supplements the constipation issue is no longer a problem. It’s nice just to be able to go to the bathroom!

Dr. Hasemeier uses several different ways of working on your problems. He adjusts your spine, he works with you on your nutrition and he uses a technique called NET. Now I have to tell you that at first I thought what in the world ….this is a bunch of voodoo. But this is what has really worked for me. NET can help you because of the emotional connection between your mind and your body. I now understand the reason my neck adjustments wouldn’t hold was because I had some emotional issues keeping me from being pain free.

I have a skin irritation problem that we have been working on also. I have discovered that when I am upset about something my skin will start to tingle and flair-up, NET has helped with the tingling about 50%, I look forward to continuing and becoming tingle free. I keep coming to work with Dr. Rick on average of once a month not because I am in pain but to continue with the nutritional supplements and to be monitored to make sure all are still working or if we need to change dosages. It’s nice to feel better and be virtually pain free.

If you are having recurring pain or flare-ups of some kind and nothing seems to help, you need to try NET. There is a definite connection between your feelings and emotions and these problems that just won’t go away, Dr. Rick can help you with theses problems using the combination of adjustments, nutritional supplementation and NET.

Let Dr. Rick help you along your journey to wellness.

Everything seemed to culminate for me when I returned to Dr. Hasemeier’s office. For several years I had run the gambit trying to find relief for Fibromyalgia, a form of rheumatoid arthritis. Some are reluctant to believe that this form of arthritis exists… they need to speak to me and the many others diagnosed with this debilitating disease. I was plagued with fatigue and pain. I would lie in bed for days. So weak I found myself crawling to the bathroom at times. I didn’t have the energy to drive to the grocery store let alone cook something.

At that point I really didn’t care if I did eat. I was so tired. Specialists were willing to fill out disability papers for me. Somehow I had a knowing that if I couldn’t work my life would literally be over. I would lie down and never get back up. I surrendered to the fact that I had Fibromyalgia. I backed off the prescription medication I was given to mask symptoms and make me more comfortable. I returned to Dr. Hasemeier to relieve the many migraines that are associated with this disease. I was surprised to find that Dr. Hasemeier was practicing somewhat different. Gone was the popping and cracking of the neck and spine.

Now Dr. Hasemeier takes a whole mind/body approach to his practice. I was sold on it immediately. What affects the body affects the mind and what affects the mind affects the body. This theory made sense to me. What started out as a visit to simply get some relief became a growing/learning process for me. Dr. Hasemeier supported my nutritional needs with all natural, whole food supplements until my eating habits could be changed. Saint Thomas wrote, “If you bring forth what is within you, it will heal you. And if you do not bring forth what is within you, it will destroy you.”

Dr. Hasemeier uses a revolutionary new technique called Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) along with a Home Run Formula that encompasses structural, nutritional, homeopathic as well as emotional components to reconnect the mind to the body, he doesn’t play psychiatrist but he does have a mysterious way of bringing to the surface blocked memories. These memories are not good or bad, right or wrong. They just are!! They were brought to the surface for me to emotionalize. I see Dr. Hasemeier as a facilitator to my healing process. As much as I may protest, I have to take total responsibility for the circumstances of my life. I am responsible for what nourishes my body. I am responsible for what I allow to nourish my soul and so on. I have worked up to forty minute kick boxing sessions and twenty minute AB sessions. I am back to doing Tai Chi and Yoga nearly everyday. And I meditate twenty minutes twice a day. Meditation is not a part of the norm in our western culture, but it cannot be emphasized enough. Meditation is not just to quiet the mind. It is to get to the quiet below the constant chatter in our heads. That’s where our true Self lies. When you get past feeling silly about meditating you will look forward to the serenity everyday. Intellectually I understand the many things that Dr. Rick has taught me. I cannot say that I have internalized all of these things yet because it is a process…a journey. It is a journey I praise God for everyday! I am sure that Dr. Rick can help you along your journey as much as he has helped me along my journey.

I am truly impressed Dr. Rick with your new philosophies and your wonderful new staff. Thank you for everything,

The cravings aren’t there anymore!

And best of all, I feel much better about myself!!! I was always having problems with my neck being tight and tense; I felt that it always needed to be “cracked.” This was a great source of discomfort for me. I had been having massages frequently and was seeing a chiropractor in Cincinnati, for adjustments, and they seemed to work for a few days to a week but then I would need them again. The doctor suggested that my neck problems were emotional and thought that N.E.T. may be helpful. I came to Dr. Hasemeier and found his office to be very positive and enlightening. I’ve learned a lot about what’s bothering me emotionally. Dr. Hasemeier is very patient, upbeat, and never judges you or your feelings. My neck feels much better, and I am able to go for a whole month in between adjustments now (as opposed to once a week).

Another problem I have had was that I drank two to three (or more) cans of soda a day for 10 years… it was my crutch. Upon waking up, my mind screamed “soda”. I depended on soda to perk me up during the late afternoon and evening as well. I wanted to quit, and tried to do so on my own several times unsuccessfully. After a couple N.E.T. sessions with Dr. Rick in which we concentrated on this, I quit cold turkey and haven’t had a soda in months. The cravings aren’t there anymore, and best of all, I feel much better throughout the day and about myself! I guess I didn’t really “need” soda after all! What people need to know about N.E.T. is that sometimes our physical pain is caused by an emotion. Past trauma and stress are the main causes of my neck/back coming out of alignment. Dr. Hasemeier gets to the problem in a friendly and non-threatening way and helps to “clear” the event that causes the physical pain. My entire self (physical, mental and emotional) is improved after a visit. I keep coming back to Dr. Hasemeier because it works!

Every detail in life improves when you feel well!

Originally, I struck my head on a kitchen cabinet many years ago, causing some compression of discs in my neck. I went to a medical doctor for help. He prescribed pain pills and they helped a bit but certainly did not cure the problem! I tried the usual over the counter pain pills, which really never helped and then I went to a chiropractor in Batavia, where I lived at the time. I found relief with Chiropractic care but upon our move to Otterbein I could not find another Chiropractor (and I tried several) who provided relief. I was desperate! The pain in my neck was very severe at times. I simply couldn’t function for that frame of time. Our new neighbors, Dr. Rick’s parents, Dr. & Mrs. Hasemeier, Sr. recommended their son.

I then tried Dr. Rick, where I have always found a very friendly and caring environment. They are always trying to educate us to seek better health – no matter what limitations we may have. When Dr. Rick changed his style of treatment a couple of years ago, I must confess I was very uneasy. However, the torque method has worked out very well and I am satisfied, and for the most part pain free. Why would I ever want to change what is working for me?!

I tell folks to at least try this method. Perhaps most of us are impatient and expect instant results, but most of our health problems have taken years to develop and surely 3-6 months isn’t too long to improve and even in some instances to cure health issues. Chiropractic is a way of life. I have accepted that and continue with maintenance. I am happy and thankful this care is available to me. Every detail in life improves when you feel well.

Good for the body and soul!

I was referred to Dr. Rick by another chiropractor because of his specialty work in NET. Dr. Rick and Debi are just special people. I have been being treated for cancer and Dr. Rick’s sincere and patient manner helped me relax and created confidence in the treatment. He’s educated and open to the latest ideas in total health care, working with the mind and spirit as well as the body.

I am a very busy working woman and Dr. Rick is always on time and reasonable in his charges. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rick and continue to see him because I feel he has truly helped me to improve my physical condition!

He has also helped me to deal with the mental stress from my cancer.

Try him! You’ll like him! He’s good for the body and soul!

Improved endurance and muscle strength!

I first met Dr. Rick through my employer, I am a Pilates instructor at the Towne Athletic Club. I teach Pilates and step aerobic classes 3 days a week, so of course I felt I was in pretty good shape. However, I had always felt that I was stronger on the right side of my body than my left. I started coming to Dr. Rick and soon began noticing I had more endurance in my classes and my balance was beginning to level out, which is one of the main goals in Pilates.

I also have had allergy problems all my life, making my love of horseback riding sometimes very uncomfortable. I was taking three prescription drugs a day for many years and I had nose bleeds at least once a week. Thanks to Dr. Rick, through his adjustments and the homeopathic remedies he has given me, I am pleased to say I no longer take any prescription or over the counter medication for my allergies. The best part being I haven’t had a nose bleed all summer.

I now can train and teach my Pilates and step aerobic classes with more endurance and muscle strength and I can ride my horses without the pain afterwards for several days. I am in the shape I thought I was in before Chiropractic and I don’t have to wait to ride on a day that my allergies are not bothering me!

I decided not to pursue the surgical option.

In January 2004 I was diagnosed with a severe case of Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is a viral infection that affects the nerves in the facial region and causes temporary (in most cases) paralysis of one side of the face. After my initial diagnosis and presentation of the treatment options, I contacted Dr. Rick for advice and treatment.

Dr. Rick helped in the research of the options presented to me by EMT specialists, as well as provided guidance as to how I should approach the option right for me. After my consultation with Dr. Rick, I decided not to pursue the surgical option, but rather pursue facial exercises, auricular therapy, adjustments and nutritional supplements to treat my condition.

As mentioned above I was diagnosed with a severe case of Bell’s Palsy. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the most severe, I was a 1. Informed by the EMT specialist that most likely I could expect a partial recovery to a 5 or 6, I am happy to say that I am an 8-9 and continue to show signs of improvement. I contribute the success of my recovery to Dr. Rick for his overall approach in the treatment of my condition. I am looking forward to being a 10 on the scale again.

Yesterday I was diagnosed with a severe case of Bell’s Palsy. Today I am well on the road to complete recovery of this ailment. Tomorrow, I will continue to see Dr. Rick for my overall wellness care. Thank you Dr. Rick for taking the time to help me understand how my nervous system interacts with my entire body. Your professionalism and caring approach are unparalleled.

I was a little skeptical…

Having never been to a Chiropractor before, I was a little skeptical about whether or not it would benefit my overall health. I began seeing Dr. Hasemeier in March of 2004 with open expectations. Dr. Rick’s evaluation and overall focus on total health and wellness was a motivation for me to start care.

My overall energy level is better, I have once again begun playing golf regularly and with only minor discomfort. This was a problem for nearly 16 years after complications from a near fatal car crash in 1988. I was never able to play a single round with confidence and be pain free. The resulting 2-3 days after physical activity was very painful as well. The adjustments have evidently aided my recovery to a point where I can play painlessly and have very little side effects in the days following my activity.

When I was a child I had allergies and breathing problems. I grew out of these problems as an adult but I was left with a lost sense of smell. On Mother’s Day this year I walked into my house and instantly smelled something offensive. I asked my wife what the smell was and as we searched to find the odor I discovered the problem in the kitchen trash. It then occurred to me that I could actually smell the offending odor and realized this to be another wonder of Chiropractic.

Having purchased a fitness facility with my wife and son last fall, I also had a desire to regain my physical appearance. I was very aware of how painful it has been to lift even minor amounts of weight for 16-years and as a result gained over 50 pounds and have had difficulty dieting to any degree. Since obtaining a physical trainer and working on a dietary fitness program, I have now lost over 37 pounds and feel great.

Feeling great about my physical well being is a great asset to my daily life. I am more confident about myself and my ability to play sports at a pre-accident level, for me this is a blessing.

Thanks to Dr. Rick, I am feeling continual benefits from my Wellness Chiropractic care and I’m sure it will enhance my spine recovery to a sustaining level within 12-14 months. I look forward to this result and thank Dr. Rick for the care and responsiveness to my physical needs.

I am totally convinced that my recovery, to date, is very much a result of my Chiropractic care.
