Recent Testimonials
From Our Previous Patients

  • My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.

    “I have suffered with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Diabetes Type 2 for a number of years. As the MCS progressively worsened over the years, I was basically confined to my home. Certain activities of daily living became impossible or extremely difficult for me to do; shopping, pumping gas, traveling, attending religious services. I began to socialize less and less with friends and family, due to their homes or they themselves not being environmentally friendly. Their laundry detergent, perfumes, or deodorant would cause me to become very ill. My diabetes was also out of control, even with traditional prescription drugs including insulin. My life changed when I began treatment at the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine.* My diabetes is finally stable with the correct diet, supplements, and exercise regimen.* My MCS no longer has complete control over my life.* I still avoid chemical exposure as much as possible but with supplements and a personal air purifier I am now able to be more independent and enjoy a social life once again.* My quality of life has significantly improved only after 2 months of treatment!* I cannot thank them enough!* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • The technicians made me feel so comfortable.

    “I wanted to let you know that I had a really good experience with the whole process of scheduling the thermos and with the test itself. I always god a callback whenever I left a message lll and they were always so professional and friendly. The staff was flexible with working to meet my scheduling needs. They sent me all of the paperwork and prep instructsion ahead of time. They also were patient with waiting for the script from my doctor’s office the day of. And what a great experience the Thermo was in contrast to Mammos I’ve had in the past. The technicians explained everything very well, made me feel comfortable, and even played music while I was adjusting to the room temperature. The test went so smoothly, and I am relieved to have the results back so quickly. It all just reinforced my decision to opt for a Thermo rather than a Memmo.”

  • I can now truly feel like the healing has begun!

    “I wanted to let you know that I am enjoying the Brain Advantage Program tremendously but it was not very enjoyable on Day One of the Program! This is just an FYI in case you have any of my relatives or close friends take the Brain Advantage Course and have similar results (which I hope they do not!)* During the first 30 minutes of the Brain Advantage Program I started hearing a tremendous amount of negative self talk, negative images and negative childhood thoughts. My mind started putting out messages like: “You stupid idiot, you can’t do anything right.” “No one wants to look at you or be with you.” “You can’t do it.” “You are so f____ed up!” I wanted to be invisible because each thought, fueled my low self-esteem and made me want to walk out your door and not come back. In fact, after I left and drove back to my hotel, I called my husband and spoke to him in an angry tone. I told him that “I was going to come back home to Overland Park, Kansas and that I didn’t want to be here at ACAM.” In fact I said, “I wasn’t going to even get my things from the hotel room, I was just going to leave all my stuff in the hotel and fly back home.” “I wasn’t going to return your calls because I didn’t like being here…..” The emotional pain was too much. But, MANY HOURS AND MANY TEARS LATER, I realized that these were most likely past tapes or childhood messages that I had heard in the past and they were not occurring right now at this moment. But boy, they felt like they were in the here and now. Somehow, later, by the grace of God, I returned to ACAM the next morning and Dr. Reese had me talk to a former client Martina, who had gone through some similar problems ….. So, after talking to Martina, then Stephanie and Chris, and then, in more serious depth to Dr. Steven Swerdfeger…. I was able to resolve and make sense of some of these EMOTIONS being stirred in my mind via The Brain Advantage Program.* And it is a good thing that all of this happened because I can now truly feel like the healing has begun (and the ADD is being solved.)* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son.

    “Do you remember us? You treated my son … years ago. I have since that time talked about your practice to everyone and anyone who will listen to me. I believe a couple of friends have brought their children to you as well. So just wanted to let you know that [he] was recently accepted into the University of Arizona. Another success story for you.* I am sure your practice changed his life.* I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my Son. I wish you many, many years of continued success.* Be well and keep healing.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.

  • Definitely a game changer!

    “I just wanted to take a moment to email you to say thank you for your very detailed testing and even considering Lyme as a possible suspect to my ailments.* Had I not gone to see you I would have never even thought of Lyme as a reason for my weakness on my right arm and leg.* In your recommendations you had stated you wanted me to possibly get checked for Lyme and I asked and asked and not one insurance doctor would do the test.* Everyone said that there was no reason to check. Well, we moved to Virginia at the end of November and finally about three weeks ago the neurologist that I went to see for my migraines here tested me for Lyme. The results came back equivocal (1.10 on Elisa) and she simply stated that they found antibodies in my blood. And she started me on Doxycycline (100mg 2x day) for 21 days. I don’t know much about Lyme but will be seeing an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday. In the meantime, we had our newborn (born 1/21/13) tested with the Western blot and another test and per the pediatrician the results were negative. We will continue praying that he will not be affected. … Thank you very much for being that little guiding light that led us in the right direction.* Once again Dr.Grout, continue to do what you do.* You were definitely a game changer for sure.* *Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of successes for any given medical treatment.
