Success Stories


I went to see Dr. Starling after seeing many doctors and not understanding why I was so tired, sick all the time, and plagued with migraines. My initial appointment was one of relief…I felt that I was finally in the right place. Dr. Starling listened to all of my vast symptoms and came up with a plan based on a holistic approach. –Madelaine L

This was a great experience and I highly recommend Dr. Starling to anyone that is interested in finding out more about how they can perform at the highest level possible!  Before this, I never knew that most allergies can actually be treated and fixed.  Stephen C

I kept getting sick with all kinds of viruses and bacterial infections but other specialists couldn’t figure out my true illness.  Dr. Starling figured it out!  I am autoimmune with a gluten and dairy intolerance.  I no longer have to sleep four extra hours a day and I just finished a 120 mile bike trip with my husband and 4 kids.  She gave me my life back.  Yes, she’s alternative, but exceptionally systematic and scientific with her methodologies.  –Meredith J

Ever since last summer, when I woke up with an inflamed thyroid, my health began declining.  I was battling joint pain, problems with my digestive system, and my “brain fog” was so bad I felt like I was losing my mind.  I also had terrible insomnia.  I had been to countless doctors and specialists, had test after test, but no real diagnosis.  Not only that, I was not getting better, I was getting worse.  I felt much older than 40 years old.

Then my mom happened to see Dr. Starling on Colorado and Company a few months ago.  Dr. Starling has changed my life.  She discovered my gluten intolerance as well as many, many previously undiagnosed allergies.  After a few months of treatment and lifestyle changes, I am feeling better than I have in a long time.  I have lost over 20 pounds, my joint pain is greatly reduced, and my intestinal problems are gone!

I would recommend Dr. Starling to anyone who is not getting proper help from traditional medicine.  It is difficult to put into words what she has done for me.  She is caring and she definitely gives each and every patient individual attention.  Dr. Starling has given me hope and I feel like I can finally enjoy being a mother to my children!  Cindy

I have suffered from stomach issues for 30+ years.  I’ve seen general practitioners and specialists who conducted several tests with inconclusive results.  I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and given a prescription to help with the associated spasms and pain.  I hated not knowing when the next episode would hit and feared long road trips and air travel without access to a restroom.  I would wake in the middle of the night in severe pain and would be up for hours.  Sometimes I’d make it to work the next day, sometimes not.  Needless to say, this was a stressful situation for both me and my family.

In April 2011, after a lengthy bout with IBS, a coworker referred me to Dr. Starling.  I was skeptical at first, but Dr. Starling quickly identified several food sensitivities and mineral/vitamin deficiencies, placed me on a 3-week detox program, and ordered additional tests.  She ultimately identified that the cause of my issues was gluten.  I’ve adjusted my diet and am definitely making healthier choices.  While living gluten-free has not been an easy transition, I have never felt better and my family has definitely noticed the change.  I have more energy, have lost approximately 15 pounds, and my stomach/bowel issues are gone.  I’m amazed with the difference and have Dr. Starling (and my coworker who referred me) to thank!  Nancy

About seven years ago, my daughter became very ill.  I started taking her to doctors who would tell me that nothing was wrong.  But she just seemed to become more and more ill everyday, sometimes having no energy at all to get out of bed.  And then when she did get out of bed she had terrible problems comprehending the instructions that were given to her by teachers and other authority figures.  I tried to find the best doctors, the best therapists, the best social workers, and even the best psychiatrists to help her.

When we saw Dr. Starling do an interview on Colorado and Company, I just had to call and find out if her services could make a difference and it did!  Now my daughter has her life back and she is making friends with people and functioning top level in her academics.  My family is absolutely amazed and astounded by the improvement that Dr. Starling’s treatments have made.  It has even been less expensive over all than the out of pocket expenses we have been paying through my insurance.  Thank you so much Dr. Starling and your wonderful team of professionals that you work with.  Sherri

When I first came into The Healing Center, I was very ill.  We had gone to several doctors over the last few years.  The answer kept coming back the same “I can’t do anything for you, you seem fine”, even though my symptoms continued to worsen.  Two years ago I was bed ridden, I couldn’t even find the strength to get up and take care of myself.  That is when things really got serious. Even as all of these things were happening we kept hope.

One day my mom told me that she saw a doctor that she was for sure could help me.  From then we made an appointment immediately.  Since all of this was going on with me and my family it took much effort, but it was well worth it to feel alive again.  Dr. Starling has been so good to me and my family.  She has had an excellent bedside manner toward all of us.  I know that anything can be accomplished now by the help of my family, Dr. Starling, and all who are a part of The Healing Center.  They have brought in a new wave of different medical techniques through practice and may even be the revolution to the medical world.  I thank each and every one of them for being such a great light to me and my family.  Kana
