See what a phenomenal patient had to say…

Color me grateful, healthy and hopeful for the future. Why you may ask? It’s because of The Balsam Institute for healing. I am presenting my litany of symptoms which included pre-diabetes, extreme fatigue, cognitive issues, IBS, unrelenting pain, and being overweight to mention just a few. I was desperate to find answers and help, feeling hopeless… UNTIL going to Balsam. They did not treat my symptoms, they wanted to discern the ROOT causes of them. What a concept! Balsam armed me with knowledge of my illnesses and provided me with a plan designed specifically for me to begin the process of healing. My five-year long journey with Balsam has been a true partnership. Because of their guidance, the medical expertise of the whole team and my stubborn determination to follow their protocols, nutritional guidelines and therapies, I am healthier and happier now than I have been since 1996, when my initial symptoms appeared. I am so blessed to have been led to the Balsam Institute for Healing. The relationships and medical results have been priceless.
