    Abdominal Pain and Joint Pain

    "After visiting many traditional doctors and having multiple tests over the past 14 years for chronic gastrointestinal distress and joint pain, the diagnosis was always “stress related”. I could not accept this diagnosis or the way I was living in pain. Two years ago, I sought Dr. Chan when traditional medicine had failed to help me. I can honestly say Dr. Chan changed my life. Dr. Chan took the time to listen to my history, symptoms, and food intolerances. She put me on supplements and a special diet right from the start and within days, I was pain free. Now, two years later, my health is back.I have very little gastrointestinal pain, and virtually no joint pain. I have been able to add foods previously intolerable, back into my diet. Dr. Chan’s listening skills, gentle manner and knowledge were key to getting my health back."

    "Dr. Chan was extremely knowledgeable and kind. She was rigorous and thoughtful in her investigation of root causes. She was a terrific listener and insightful healer. I experienced extremely dramatic improvements in my health after our appointments. My rather bad and persistent acne cleared up almost entirely much more rapidly than after having gone on dermatologically- prescribed antibiotics. My formerly rampant anxiety is almost entirely quelled. I am extremely satisfied with my experience."

    "I went to Dr. Chan with concerns about candida (yeast), as I was suffering from a skin yeast infection and severe fatigue and headaches. She was well-versed in this issue. She listened intently and really heard what I was saying. Then she very carefully explained her theory of how my situation came about. She tailored my supplements and vitamins to my own body in a fascinating way, and I am on the right track! In setting up the appointment, I was really touched by her accommodation to my needs, as I was suffering pretty severe symptoms and hoped for an appointment asap."

    Cervical Dysplasia and HPV

    "I have spent years of struggling with HPV & CIN 1 dysplasia seeing doctor after doctor (MDs) who told me “This is just something you’ll have to deal with the rest of your life”. In the first few minutes of our conversation Dr. Chan described to me the different levels of HPV stages and what kind or protocols and approaches she takes to help the body rid this disease for good. She has an amazing track record of dealing with these problems particularly. The best part about her is how completely accessible she is unlike most modern doctors. Her and I both live on opposite ends of the country and she is able to have Skype appointments with me where she is focused in on my specific concerns. After just 4 months of undergoing treatment of specific homeopathic vials, pills, immune system support and energy releasing strategies, I am beyond pleased to report that as of today I no longer have HPV or CIN 1 dysplasia!"

    Chrohn's disease

    I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease roughly six years ago. I suffered from weight loss, anemia, and severe gastrointestinal discomfort. Typical Western-style medicine helped to keep my disease in check, but it wasn't until I met Dr. Chan that my health greatly improved. Using a variety of approaches that included changes to my diet and nutritional supplements prescribed by Dr. Chan, I was able to achieve a new level of health and satisfaction with my treatment. I feel better today than I have in nearly a decade!

    Chronic Fatigue

    "Dr. Chan has helped overcome many of my difficulties regarding chronic fatigue syndrome especially my inability to fight off inflections due to my immune dysfunction. She has addressed the immune dysfunction through natural products, supplements and diet. Her treatment has resulted in lowering the number and severity of debilitating infections, and an increase in my energy level. For the first time in years, I have been able to slowly increase my exercise level without a letdown response that had been my experience prior to treatment. I look forward to increasing progress toward health under Dr. Chan's able direction."

    Chronic Hives

    "I reached out to Dr. Chan because I suffer from auto-immune chronic hives. I had been curious about naturopathic doctors for years but afraid I would be placed on a strict diet that wouldn't work for my lifestyle. All I can say is that I wish I had found her long ago! She immediately helped me. Her approach is finding multiple avenues to reach the root cause of illness. She takes time to clearly explain her techniques and methods from a technical perspective that can be easily understood. In just 2 weeks, I noticed great improvement in my hives; but I also have so much more energy, have lost weight and feel fantastic. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Emily"

    "Dr. Chan was able to really get to what seems to be the crux of my problem, because after just a few days on the protocol she provided I have so much more energy! I like how she really listens and has a great knowledge-base to come up with an effective plan that suits my unique needs. I would recommend her to anyone who feels their body is not functioning optimally."

    Fatigue and Sleep Issues

    "The quality of my life has greatly improved since I started seeing Dr. Chan. I'm sleeping better, have tons more energy, and am starting to feel less stress and anxiety. Dr. Chan is very knowledgeable about the body and mind, and she is a kind and non-judgmental listener. I'm fortunate to have found her!"

    Gastrointestinal problems and Anxiety

    "When I first came to see Dr. Chan I was experiencing a great deal of anxiety, stomach pain and indigestion. I had been to see a number of doctors and therapists in the past regarding my symptoms and felt that I was either ignored, misdiagnosed, or prescribed drugs that worsened my symptoms. Dr. Chan took the time to listen to me and was sensitive to my concerns. Dr. Chan prescribed me natural supplements and helped me understand how diet and lifestyle play a key role in health and wellbeing. My anxiety and gastrointestinal issues greatly improved as a result of my treatment. I am now on a sustainable path toward greater health and wellbeing. As a result of my treatment I have also gained a greater understanding of the connection between nutrition, lifestyle, emotions and the body."

    GI problems and Skin Issues

    I just had my first visit with Dr. Chan and I am so impressed. I am 52 years old and have been to many doctors over the years. I have been searching for a healthcare professional who was well educated in holistic healing, compassionate, caring, a great listener and someone I could trust with my healthcare. I finally found her! Dr. Chan is all I could hope for and more. I was having persistent diet, skin and GI problems for years. Within a week of my visit with Dr. Chan I noticed remarkable changes. We put together a workable plan for my future that I am sure will help me to keep improving and feel the best I have in years. I feel so blessed to have found her!

    Health Goals Achieved in Short Time

    "I credit Dr. Chan with essentially saving my life. As many of the other reviews have said she is brilliant and truly understands how the whole body works. She was able to accomplish, in a relatively short time, what many doctors were not focused on or interested in. I have referred a number of family and friends to her for a broad range of issues - I believe she can help them where others have only prescribed meds. Thank you!"

    High Grade Cervical Dysplasia and HPV

    "I had a Pap smear and pathology showed High Grade SIL and HPV positive. I had a couple options for treatment and I luckily chose the alternative route with Dr. Chan. She put me on a protocol, which I faithfully stuck to for several months. I was determined to get rid of the HPV naturally. I had a re-pap 5 months later and it was normal and negative for HPV. I am so relieved with the results and happy I was healed naturally by Dr. Chan! Not only is Dr. Chan knowledgeable, she truly cares and patiently listens to her patients. Thank you Dr. Chan!"

    "Dr. Chan reviewed my recent labs and pointed out lab values and correlations which explained why I had not been feeling well. Her explanation was simple, and made sense, yet in comparison, my physician was not able to come to the same conclusions. I feel I can rely on Dr. Chan to provide me with common sense feedback and products that support my health issues. It's very comforting to know that I can ask her questions and that she will advise me in a kind and thoughtful manner."

    "We brought my son to Dr. Chan because ever since coming home from the hospital, he had been getting these blister-like skin spots in different parts of his body. When it was diagnosed as MRSA, I was angry and afraid because this often does not have a cure and can even kill him. The pediatrician kept saying that it is so rare for an infant to develop MRSA and claimed that it might just go away on its own. She kept sending antibiotics, which worked to eliminate the current MRSA spot, but more always occurred 2 weeks to 3 months afterwards. Frustrated and confused, I researched naturopathic doctors in the area and found Dr. Chan. Dr. Chan gave us some important information on MRSA that I did not know and she advised us to apply an energized gel. Trying the gel for the first time, I noticed the MRSA infection getting better in a shorter time than with antibiotics. Additionally, the gel doesn't destroy the good stomach bacteria as the antibiotics do. Since then, my son has not had one MRSA infection and he is almost one year old. If I do see a questionable skin spot, I apply the gel to the spot and it disappears in about two days. I am so grateful for finding Dr. Chan and I wish more people were open to naturopathic medicine because it saved my son's life."
