Autoimmune cases are on the rise. Thanks to their post-doctoral training, Dr. Berry and Dr. Teames have extensive education and experience in managing these difficult conditions. Arizona Chiropractic Neurology Center is not your typical healthcare center. We are a multidisciplinary practice that utilizes an array of scientific and cutting edge methods ranging from Functional Neurology, Nutrition and Supplements, Advanced Lab Testing, Low Level Laser Therapy and much more. With our unique, brain-based and whole-body perspective we often find solutions where others couldn’t. Here is another example of a wonderful human being, Jessica Kruge, and her journey. We are happy to report Jessica just completed a half marathon and is doing well in Indianapolis. She has given us permission to share her story so others may benefit from our care:
“I cannot say enough about how the care of Dr. Berry, his team, and functional medicine has changed my life. My name is Jessica. I am a 30 year old female and I have been battling symptoms of auto-immunity for close to 10 years now.
My autoimmune journey began with occasional GI issues and inexplicable joint pain. Over the course of a few years symptoms escalated to chronic GI issues, debilitating joint pain, brain fog, chronic fatigue, skin problems and eventually a life-threatening case of pericarditis and acute renal failure, which landed me in ICU for a week.
After my three flare-ups of pericarditis I became a patient at Mayo Clinic. I saw several top-notch specialists at Mayo and underwent countless tests. After almost 2 years at Mayo, the doctors told me that I probably had a developing autoimmune disease and that there wasn’t much we could do for it but to wait and see if it developed any further. Having several auto-immune “flares” after being released from Mayo left me feeling helpless and searching for answers.
I have now been under the care of Dr. Berry and functional medicine for not even a year and I am AMAZED at how much better I am doing! My GI is doing much better, I don’t have any more pain or brain fog, my energy levels are back to where they should be, my kidneys are healing, and I feel so much better overall! I even just recently ran a half-marathon! (totally not Dr. B approved, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned besides health care from Dr. B is that you’ve gotta live a little!- skydiving, bungee-jumping, etc…..right Dr. B? 🙂
Dr. Berry, I want you to know that you are more than just a wise doctor, but an answer to prayer. My health journey has been more than just about health for me, but also about faith. God has taught me so much about Himself and myself through this battle with auto-immunity. Though God has given you the enormous brain capacity and understanding of how to help people live healthier lives, ultimately I praise Him for healing my body. I just feel like I can’t truthfully share my story without sharing of God’s goodness in my life…. you are just the biggest vessel that he has used.
I am so thankful for Dr. Berry and his team. Their knowledge and help has truly changed my life forever! Though the battle of auto-immunity may be something I fight for a life-time, I feel like I now have the tools and the knowledge to fight the battle I’ve been given.”
Gratefully, Jessica Kruge (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
Patient relieved of Migraines, Dizziness, Anxiety and Sleep problems after 2 years of suffering
“I suffered from my neurological symptoms including migraine headaches for 2 years before going to Dr. Berry. My daily headaches were usually a 3 and would reach a 6 at least twice a week. My symptoms resulted in me staying in bed all the time and missing a lot of school. I was in so much pain and suffering so much that I didn’t feel or act like myself anymore because I just didn’t have any energy.
I was going from doctor to doctor and being put on any and every medication that might somehow improve my migraines. After every medication being tried and all of them not showing any lasting improvement, we decided to try something else that may help and we were referred to Dr. Berry.
I’m not going to lie, at first I was terrified because I had no clue what to expect. The minute I met Dr. Berry and everyone at the office, I knew I was in good hands. Everyone was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. At my first appointment I was already convinced Dr. Berry was a miracle worker. He took the time to explain my test results which allowed me to actually understand what was causing my symptoms rather than just trying to medicate them away. I can happily say he lives up to that first impression. By the fourth visit my headaches were no longer daily and by my sixth visit I was symptom free. He also had me change some of my lifestyle habits to help keep me healthy like diet and water intake changes.
I can never thank Dr. Berry enough for everything he has done for me. I feel like I have my life back and I am forever grateful.”

“I first met Dr. Teames because my husband was in a car accident. I saw what he did and how he treated my husband and mentioned that I should see what he thought of my MRI. He looked at my MRI the next time we were there and said he could help. I had given up hope that I was ever going to be pain-free in my back so I gave it a shot. I had relief with decompression and adjustments in just a few visits. He had earned my respect so I mentioned that I was always tired, never had energy, had a horrible memory, and my hands shook (he noticed my tremors during his exam). I had gotten blood work through my PCP before and they always told me this was a side effect of the medicine I was on. Well after Dr. Teames looked at my blood work, did some neurological stuff and drastically changed my diet, it all started getting better.I have more energy, a better memory, and clearer thinking than I have had in many years; and my shaking is GONE! Dr. Teames has let me enjoy and live life more than I have been able to in more than 10 years. He has changed my life!

Relief from Atypical Vertigo
“I met Dr. Berry and Dr. Teames after suffering from unrelenting vertigo for 9 days. I am a nurse so I am educated about the possible causes and treatments of this terrible illness. I had already tried taking the typical medications offered and I had done the recommended Eply’s maneuvers that are used to help move the crystals out of the inner posterior ear canals. None of it helped. By the time I had my evaluation I was mentally and physically exhausted from trying to fight the spinning, and had already missed several days of work. I was blown away by the treatment I received during my first visit with Dr. Berry! He and Dr. Teames spent an inordinate amount of time going through my history, bedside exam and advanced diagnostics at their office. It was only through this thorough testing and examination that they were able to diagnose that I had an atypical type of vertigo that involved my anterior inner ear canal and other brainstem factors. This is the reason why the standard Eply’s maneuvers and other treatments weren’t working, and were likely making my vertigo worse. By the end of my first visit I was able to think more clearly. I improved after each visit and by my third visit I had complete relief of my vertigo. I learned so much more about the causes of vertigo and experienced excellent care from Dr. Berry. I cannot say enough about the outstanding care I received!
I am so thankful for Dr. Berry and his team!”

Relief from Chronic Migraines
After my return to town from helping my mother move I started experiencing headaches. Not just a normal headache but one that made me nauseous and had me thinking I should go to the ER. I don’t typically get headaches and this was what I figured people called a migraine. After several hours and a ton of over the counter drugs it subsided but returned the next day. For several days this went on and my friends were saying I should go to my primary physician. Dr. Berry had helped me for other conditions in the past so I thought I would see him first. Thank god I did or else I bet I’d be on all the migraine drugs my friends are on. After just one treatment he knew exactly what was going on and with his treatment I walked out feeling better. I felt the slight lingering of a headache that night and the next morning but after that I haven’t experienced a single headache of any kind! It’s been over a month and I’m still feeling great. Truly remarkable! I can’t thank him enough and I refer him to everyone I know who’s ever experienced a migraine.

Relief from visual disturbances, syncope, headaches, unrelenting stiffness, vertigo and abdominal distress.
Meet Dr. Evelyn Sanchez.
Dr. Sanchez presented to my office with multiple serious neurological symptoms including visual disturbances, syncope, headaches, unrelenting stiffness, vertigo and abdominal distress.
As a professor and primary caregiver of her ailing husband she had deteriorated to the point where she could no longer work, drive herself or her husband to his appointments or even focus on normal daily tasks. Dr. Sanchez wanted to share her success story so that others may benefit from functional neurology.
I am very grateful that several months ago I was referred to Dr. Berry to assess and address my serious health situation. At that time I was experiencing light-headedness, dizziness, headaches, neck and shoulder stiffness, nausea and, worst of all, near fainting episodes. These symptoms caused me to feel out of place in my body and made me wonder if I would be able to continue functioning in my daily life as a college instructor and my husband’s caregiver. Most of all, I was afraid to drive for fear I would faint. I had to resort to friends and family to transport me and my husband since I could no longer safely drive myself. My self-confidence evaporated as my life closed down around me. Then I heard about Dr. Berry and how he may be able help me with my problem. Within minutes of assessing me, Dr. Berry informed me that I was suffering from oculomotor dysfunction or inappropriate eye tracking, which was sending conflicting sensory information to my brain. After his in office treatments and daily eye-tracking exercises I am excited to report my symptoms disappeared, and I began feeling comfortable in my body and strong enough to continue all my activities, including driving! Even my gastroenterologist agreed with Dr. Berry’s diagnosis and has urged me to continue following my exercise routine to ensure good G.I. health. I cannot praise Dr. Berry enough; thanks to him, I have been able to regain my self-confidence and embrace life once again.
