Appreciations


Below are a few of the notes of appreciation from her clients, in the following categories*:

 

Children

My son has suffered from sties in his eyes since he was 2 years old. We went to a number of doctors and ophthalmologists over the years who prescribed antibiotics and other ointments – all of which only offered temporary relief, if any at all. Frustrated with the prognosis, I decided to look up Homeopathic doctors online. It was there I came across Anamika Stoller’s name. We decided to give her a try. I am happy to say that after just two consultations with her and three doses of her prescribed homeopathic medications; my son has been sty-free for over two years now. I would highly recommend Anamika to all my friends and family.

Anamika Stoller is a very thorough physician, who is caring, friendly, and someone whom you can build your confidence on. The best part of our interaction with her is that she is always available for questions and concerns, either via e-mail or by phone.

Ms. Stoller is truly an example of what doctors should be like.*

Pain

I woke up with a headache one day, almost two months before my 15th birthday. The headache emerged overnight, and it bothered me all day. I went to bed that night thinking it would go away with rest, but the next day I woke up, and it was still there. I waited a week, and it was still there. By the second week, I was beginning to grow more symptoms: I felt exhausted and suffered from very sharp pain in my ear, as well as a slight stomachache, so I went to a doctor to see what was wrong. They didn’t know, but suggested I rest and take some Tylenol, assuring me the pain would go away.

For more than 5 years, I had this headache. The nature of the headache would change throughout the day, turning from a splitting headache to a dull one, to a throbbing one, to a stabbing one. Sometimes it felt as if an axe were slamming my head open. My head felt chronically heavy, and the pain would rotate throughout my skull. I was chronically exhausted, could barely walk through my house, had very poor balance and coordination, suffered from earaches and sharp stomachaches beneath my ribs, from great sensitivity to sound, from nausea, from dizziness, from vertigo, from heart palpitations and chest pains, from breathlessness. Exercise made everything worse — even walking down the street left me panting and wan. Periods left me practically comatose. For years, I was bedridden. I saw numerous doctors — neurologists, neurosurgeons, endocrinologists — had 4 MRIs, CT scans, and many blood tests. They tested every medication they could on me, none which worked, some which just made me sleep for 16 hours and I’d still wake up in pain. Nothing made the headache decrease in intensity, not even slightly; it was always at a level 6-7 in pain, sometimes increasing to 9 on bad days. No medication reduced the pain by even a point, but one drug did start giving me seizures. The doctors didn’t know what was wrong, and they didn’t care to find out either; prescribing me drugs seemed to be their main concern.

After 5 years of this, and seeing 22 doctors, in my complete desperation, I searched online for an alternative medicine doctor, and found Anamika. She was really my last hope. If her treatment didn’t work, I planned to go to India and test my luck with Ayurveda.

Seeing Anamika was the best decision I ever made.

The first consultation was about 2 hours long, which was something positive in my book, since I was sick and tired (so to speak) of seeing doctors for 15 minutes only to be diagnosed as a “Mystery Child.” I wanted someone to actually examine me and listen and search for what was wrong. Anamika listened very attentively and took gigantic notes. She asked all sorts of questions, from the typical (what is the nature of the pain, the intensity, the location, the additional symptoms) to the more atypical (during what season of the year did I become sick, what happened a few months prior to the illness, what kind of weather aggravates my symptoms, whether the severity of the pain changes according to the time of day, what are my dreams or nightmares like, etc.) She asks everything, because she says all symptoms — physical and emotional — are tied together and are relevant for a precise diagnosis.

Basically, her method was to change my diet upside-down, which was something I’d never been recommended to do before.

Within 3 months of following her instructions, I began to see the headache and stomachaches actually decrease in intensity for the first time ever. Every month, my symptoms improved a little more. My headache, stomachaches, exhaustion, dizziness, nausea, and seizures all began to go down. About 6 months after the first consultation, I felt well enough to do vigorous exercise, and I could do it without my symptoms intensifying. About 11 months after the first consultation, the headache and stomaches and exhaustion officially disappeared.

Strangely, I then started having to deal with emotional symptoms, but Anamika was extremely supportive and encouraging through that emotionally trying time. She told me it was a normal part of the process, and that those symptoms meant I was actually officially getting better and going back to normal. I dealt with these emotional symptoms for a month, and then had lousy days very occasionally for 2—3 months, before those symptoms too started going away. Anamika spaced our appointments more and more, after indicating that I was officially recuperating and didn’t need to see her as often.

It’s now almost been two years since my first appointment with Anamika, and I can say with full confidence that I am finally officially cured. 😀 For over 1 year now, I have had no headaches, no stomachaches, no exhaustion, no dizziness, no nausea, no vertigo, no anything. My last emotional symptoms disappeared 8 months ago. I even have very slight period pain now, after she treated that as well once I complained about the intensity of my menstrual pain, and I can now continue with my routine even on the first day of my period. I am as active as I like, go to school regularly, volunteer, travel, and no longer mold my life around my body. My life has changed so much, in every positive way. This has been the best year I’ve had in a long, long time; my head and my body feel light again, and I’m as cheerful as I was before I became sick, and I am ecstatic and so grateful that I met Anamika and chose to see her those two years ago. It really was the best decision I made. I can never repay her for what she’s done for me, in restoring my health and bringing my life back to where it’s supposed to be.*

Up until the time I decided to seek homeopathic care I considered myself to be a healthy middle-aged person, give or take an isolated pain here or there. I eat well, drink moderately, walk a lot and go in and out of aerobic exercise and I do not smoke.

While I have known of homeopathic medicine for several years I had not been regularly involved in homeopathic care. Part of the reason is that I am drug sensitive. That means sensitive to many forms of drugs. So, I have been cautious about what I ingest.

At the time I decided to see Anamika Stoller I was in great pain and at my wits end. (Please bear in mind that I am a person with very high pain tolerance so you can imagine the intensity of the pain.). At that time, I was sleeping about 2 hours a night and could only do that sitting in my recliner chair.

On my first visit I spent 2 hours with Anamika as she took very detailed information about my health history. Some of the questions seemed odd but I figured she knew what she was doing. Couple that with the fact that I highly trusted the person who had recommended her to me. With that in mind, I went with the flow. Anamika explained to me that holistic medicine treats the whole person not the disease. I wasn’t sure how that would work but I was willing to move forward with her because nothing had worked so far and the western alternative for me was serious harsh drugs.

After that first visit, Anamika called me a few days later to tell me the treatment she had prepared was ready for my pick-up. I started the treatment (which consisted of tiny little white pellets). Within two days of taking the first treatment (there were 2 for me – 10 days apart), my pain began to subside. If memory serves me correctly by the end of one week I was pretty much pain free. I couldn’t believe it! For over a month I had been in agony and now I was pain free. I could say lots more but I think this is enough. Anamika gave me my daily life back. I am deeply grateful to her for her talents in homeopathy. She’s a gift and one I treasure.* ~GAK

Skin Issues

Anamika Stoller is a very efficient doctor. During the treatment of my child I found that she doesn’t believe in relying fully upon medications, instead she wants the patient to be able to fight the illness. One good thing that is not to be found among alternative medicine doctors is she is not prejudiced with Allopathy, she respects its needfulness also.

Anamika is also available, on call, when you need her. She has been a good help since I approached her for my son’s eczema treatment. I sincerely thank her for being there whenever I needed her.* ~KS

”Your body has the power to heal itself”. That was the mantra that I repeat constantly during my Healing Journey. I was diagnosed with melanoma in February 18, 2010. After being under the Western Medicine umbrella, and traumatized by the diagnosis, and the treatments being offered, I decided to search for an alternative healing treatment more in tune with my beliefs.

It was my destiny to run into Anamika’s website; after an in-depth reading of the information, I called her, and I made an appointment for the next morning.

I liked her; during the first visit I had, for the first time since my diagnosis, a very peaceful feeling. Her words resonated within the deepest part of myself; I felt that I have found a “companion” for my Healing Journey.

Anamika has played a very important role during my healing; her wisdom, knowledge, and compassion have been my guide, and my support during this process. She is a very charismatic healer.

What happened with the melanoma? From a very large, and black spot, little by little, the black spot became smaller and lighter … up to the point that now my skin has recovered its natural color, as Anamika had told from the very beginning that this is what it was going to happen.

I have been very optimistic since I met Anamika, and very patient, watching every day the troublesome spot, observing how slowly this was getting lighter and always repeating the mantra “YOUR BODY HAS THE POWER TO HEAL ITSELF”.

I am, and I will always be, very thankful to Anamika for having being such a compassionate companion during my Healing Journey.*

Digestive

I give Anamika my highest recommendation! She helped me through 2 years of recovery from gastrointestinal damage and I am so grateful for her help. Her generosity with her time, patience with my questions, and steadfast belief in my body’s resilience was exactly what I needed and what I had been unable to find anywhere else. Her questions were thorough and she took detailed notes. She allowed me time to ask any questions and was available by phone and email between appointments. Her gentle, caring manner made me feel at ease in our conversations. She treated me as a whole person, drawing connections between my physical and mental states and addressing acute problems as they arose throughout my recovery. The time that she put in to learn about me and gain a full understanding of my condition really helped me to trust her suggestions and feel supported throughout my recovery. I have since moved from the Bay area and just wish I could have taken her with me!*

Allergies

I appreciate Anamika’s thoroughness and attention to detail, as well as her compassionate and caring countenance. As a healing practitioner, I like working with the whole person and getting to the source of issues, not just treating symptoms.

The work that Anamika does with homeopathy is just that – holistic and very effective. She has helped me on an outward/physical level with allergies and other assorted conditions; on a more internal level, I would say that my overall view of life has improved greatly as a result of her care.

I highly recommend Anamika’s skills and have frequently referred clients to her for chronic and acute conditions.*

General

I don’t know how many times I caught myself thinking: “Thank God for Anamika!”. Since I started treatment with her, in December 2008, she has helped me balance myself and recover my health. I was so satisfied with the treatment that six months later, I started taking my son to her. And that was the best decision I’ve ever made. My little one is a preschooler, so he is exposed to all kinds of virus, all the time. I can clearly see the effectiveness of homeopathic with him. While his friends get sick and miss a week of class, my son either do not get sick or recovers within 2 days. For twice this year, he got a stomach flu. He would be vomiting, with diarrhea, but as soon as I would give him homeopathy, he would start improving immediately.

Do you know when sometimes you are afraid you will get sick (or get worse) during the weekend? Well, I no longer have this problem. I can always reach Anamika and she will consult me through the phone and either prescribe me something I can buy in a store nearby or she will mail me the medicine. If I had to use one word to describe Anamika, it would be reliable! She is a very knowledgeable and caring person. I always leave her office feeling better than I was when I came in. I was emotionally and physically unbalanced when I first came to her. Throughout the treatment, I recovered my health and became myself again. I cannot thank Anamika enough for all she has done for me and my family. If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment, try it yourself. You will be pleasantly surprised with the results!*

Anamika Stoller has helped my son, myself and my husband with homeopathic remedies over the last year or more. She is gifted in her insights, professional in manner and a lovely presence in our lives. We are healthier, happier and more balanced as a result. I highly recommend Ms. Stoller.* ~C. B. Choate

I contacted Anamika in January of 2006, and made an appointment to see her in February of 2006. The first meeting was very thorough! It lasted about three hours and went over every aspect of my medical history, all the “stresses” I have been through, my dreams, my aches, pains, ailments, and everything else about me as a person. I easily shared with her more about me in that three hours than all of the Western Medical Physicians I have ever seen put together.

I had come to see Anamika to help treat me for two main conditions: erectile dysfunction and high cholesterol (it was at 230 when I first met Anamika). I had seen a program about homeopathy and was tired of Western medicine and the way they do things, so I looked up homeopathic doctors on the internet, found Anamika, and contacted her.

During the course of the first meeting, and at every follow-up session, I have found Anamika to be very caring and easy to talk to. She is very nonjudgmental, thorough in her questioning, and genuine. During the first session we also agreed to not only treat my cholesterol and ED problems, but my sleep patterns, aching knee and elbow joints, low energy in the afternoons, and depression.

Several days after my first interview my first two dosages arrived with instructions on taking them. (The instructions must be followed exactly!) I have seen, or talked with Anamika each month since February. After each follow-up session I receive a new dosage to take. Sometimes the dosage is the same as the previous month, or it maybe something different depending on how my progress is going.

To date my cholesterol has dropped to 178, my knees and elbows have stopped aching, I feel no depression, and my sleep has improved. I still have a little trouble sleeping, but I have recently changed my sleep pattern (going to bed and getting up earlier), so I’m still adjusting.

My ED has shown the slowest progress. When I first take a dosage I feel a greater increase in my sexual health within a few days of taking the dosage, but unfortunately, for right now, it wears off after a few days. Anamika has told me to be patient it will take longer to heal this problem than the other ones. She had also given me some yoga asanas to do in conjunction with my dosages for the ED, to help with my progress.

Although the dosages are very small, they are very potent. As I mentioned earlier they have helped me in almost all of the areas I went to see Anamika about, and that she wanted to treat me for. If I went to a Western MD who knows how many different medications I would have had to take, or possible surgeries I would have had to have (for my knees and elbows).

Another example of how potent, and effective, the dosages are, follows: In mid-May I came down with a severe throat and earache. I went to the doctor about my throat and earache. He said it was an allergy and prescribed a medication and a spray to use. I called Anamika instead and never had the prescription filled. She told me to go ahead and take my current dosage that had (luckily) just arrived. My doctor had told me it would take about four days or so for the prescription he had suggested to reach full effect. The first day I took the dosage from Anamika I could tell I was getting better. By the next day I felt 60% better. By the second day I felt 95% better, in fact the only pain I was feeling was if I yawned I had some pain in my throat. By the third day even that was gone. My wife and I were both very impressed by how quickly and efficiently the dosage worked!

All in all I am very pleased with Anamika and homeopathy. I don’t hesitate to, or have any reservation about, recommending Anamika to treat any ailment, ache, or condition you may have.*  ~RH
