I am writing to recommend Dr. Brian Hardy.  He is extremely competent, kind and skillful.  

He relates well to patients and fellow practitioners.   

 

From a personal standpoint, he was able to treat my acute discognenic back pain quickly and efficaciously, allowing me to return to my operative schedule pain free. 


Dr. Hardy is an asset and I am happy to recommend him without reservation.

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?

I first heard about Dr. Hardy when employee services were explaining the county health insurance program to my husband and me. 

  

We were intrigued that a company would have a health insurance program geared towards acquiring and maintaining the health of its members with future benefits including less visits to a doctor due to illness and less long term illness down the road. 

  

We asked the instructor what doctors were on the county’s list. 

  

Dr. Hardy was one of the doctors listed that seemed to have a wide range or techniques and treatments. 

 

What prompted you to select Dr. Hardy and his services?

Not long after, my mom injured her back and when the doctors told her there was nothing they could do but control the pain, she was ready to give up. 

  

A friend told her about Dr. Hardy, and together, we went to see him. I thought if
Dr. Hardy could help with such a variety of ailments, we both needed to see him.
  

  

Before you came to Dr. Hardy for help, what other treatments and/or services did you try?

At that time, I didn’t think there was that much wrong with me. I was tired all the time, but I thought it was just from having 6 kids. I had tried multivitamins to give me energy, but soon they wouldn’t help anymore. I also tried many green energy drink formulas, which worked sometimes, but I couldn’t afford to keep buying them. 

  

What were the results of the treatment(s) and/or services you received from
Dr. Hardy’s office?

Dr. Hardy had me fill out some health surveys regarding my everyday health. 

Then he took me through a series of tests that revealed how my body is affected by certain foods. 

 

The whole time, Dr. Hardy was educating and teaching me about nutrition and that optimal health involves first cleansing and then nourishing the body with foods that the body is not sensitive to. 

My first cleanse was working on my metabolism and liver. The cleanse was easy to do and at the completion, we retook the tests. 

  

It was amazing to see the improvement in how I felt and how my body was improving. After the digestive cleanse we retested again and there was still improvement! 

  

By this time I was really surprised. My energy levels were really improved.

Next Dr. Hardy prescribed some nutraceuticals to heal my body and strengthen my body systems. 

 

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

With the knowledge I gained about taking care of my health, and the treatments Dr. Hardy gave me, I began exercising and training. 

  

I just ran my first 5K in seventeen years! 

  

I appreciate that I can take charge of my health and that the county supports and encourages that. I know Dr. Hardy cares about his clients becoming well, healthy and educated enough to no longer need his services, except for an occasional maintenance visit. 

That’s how healthcare should be run. I will continue to go to Dr. Hardy for maintenance when needed. 

  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s office to your friends and family members?

Dr. Hardy does much more than just what he did for me. I have recommended him to my friends and family already. I would recommend Dr. Hardy to anyone who wants to live more healthy and energetic, as well as to anyone who needs more help than they can get from traditional methods. 

  

Please feel free to share additional comments.

One friend thanks me every time we meet because Dr. Hardy was able to help her through acupuncture and nutraceuticals even when other doctors had given up on her. 

  

My own mother was suffering from pain med induced depression and the fact that the doctors painted a hopeless picture that she would have no relief from the incredible pain in her back and neck for the rest of her life. 

  

After Dr. Hardy’s AccuSpina and IDD therapy treatments and education, she is off all of her pain meds and knows the stretches and exercises to strengthen her back long-term that Dr. Hardy taught to her. 

  

It’s incredible how vast Dr. Hardy’s knowledge of the human body is.
He understands a multitude of ways to heal the body and maintain health. I would recommend his services to everyone.

I had been having problems with swollen hands, feet and lips for the past few years. No one could really give me an answer for the problems.  I was told it could be allergies or maybe a thyroid problem. I did not know of any treatments or preventative measures to take. 

 

It became an inconvenient and painful occurrence that I had to tolerate and live with.  Around Thanksgiving 2012, I began experiencing increased swelling in my hands and feet, but also the new symptom of painful joints in my hands and feet.  Sometimes the pain and swelling was so debilitating that I could not turn a door knob or even zip my pants.  

 

After numerous doctor visits and blood tests, I was diagnosed with a rheumatoid type of arthritis.  I was put on a strong drug to suppress my immune system and a high dose of an anti-inflammatory/pain medication.  I took all the medication as prescribed, but did not see any significant improvement.  I continued to have painful joints and swelling.   

 

I was at very near the point of asking my doctor for a biologic drug which I was told might give me relief.  Biologics are very expensive and come with an increased risk of infection and other terrible side effect; not drugs to be taken lightly.  I was hesitant but needed relief.   

 

A coworker with Washington County told me about Dr. Hardy and his natural approach to health.  I checked out his website and saw that he performed acupuncture.  I decide to try acupuncture for pain and stress relief.  During the four or five acupuncture visits, Dr. Hardy explained the other treatments and methods for improved health that he offered.   

 

I decided that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by allowing Dr. Hardy to use his expertise to help me.  Dr. Hardy performed testing and ordered blood tests and determined a program to best help me.  He put me on homeopathic remedies, vitamins and other supplements and told me which foods to avoid and which to eat more of.   

 

I felt almost immediate improvement with my pain level and also had reduced occurrences of swelling.  After a few months of treatments with Dr. Hardy I was pain free and no longer needed the anti-inflammatory/pain medication and my swelling had all but disappeared.   

 

I decided to stop taking my immune-suppression drug and just manage my symptoms under Dr. Hardy’s care.  I have been seeing Dr. Hardy regularly and following his instructions and I have not had any joint pain for even any swelling in over six months.  He listens and makes adjustments as needed to my treatment plant.

 

Prior to visiting Dr. Hardy, I had begun a weight loss program and had lost a significant amount of weight, but my weight loss had plateaued and I became very discouraged.   

 

Dr. Hardy mentioned to me that he was also able to help with weight loss. 

I followed his plan and was able to break through my plateau.  I have lost an additional 20 pounds with Dr. Hardy and will stick with it until I get the last 30 pounds off as well. 

Dr. Hardy is knowledgeable, compassionate and a great listener.  He has helped me and I am very grateful for the level of health he has helped me to achieve and I am happy to recommend him to family and friends.

I will continue to stay in contact with Dr. Brian Hardy.

I trust in his ability to improve my life-style so that I can resume the many outdoor activities I enjoyed so much before this debilitating accident that caused me so much grief. Also, the nutritional supplements he has recommended will surely help restore many of the damaged muscles and ligaments. 

  

I will continue to read his website, hopefully gaining greater confidence in my responsibility to look after my body in the best way I can.

Sandra Watkins
Court Clerk
St. George, Utah 

 

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?

From other co-workers who have been to his office.

I also read about him on his website.

 

What prompted you to select Dr. Hardy and his services?

Dr. Hardy is part of our medical plan – and his is big on nutrition and finding out the cause of your problem rather than just prescribing medication for the symptoms.

 

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

Major fatique – I am tired all the time.

 

Before you came to Dr. Hardy for help, what other treatments and/or services did you try?

Medications

 

What were the results of the above treatment(s) or services you received?

The medications helped somewhat, but oftentimes, was compounding the problem.

 

Did Dr. Hardy diagnose your health condition(s) with x-rays, MRI and or blood tests that were not used previously by other Health Care Professionals to diagnose your health condition?

Dr. Hardy ran some blood tests.

 

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

Dr. Hardy went over the medications I was taking and found that they were causing a lot of my tiredness. He gave me vitamins and nutritional supplements where I was lacking and has helped me have a lot more energy and stamina.

 

Also, I’ve been on his weight loss program which has helped immensely with my overall health.

H
e is educating me in areas of nutrition and helping me that way.

 

What were the results of the treatment(s) and/or services you received from
Dr. Hardy’s office?

From my blood tests he found that my thyroid treatment from my regular physician was lacking and that I actually have Hashimoto’s Disease.

 

He has given me supplements to get my thyroid working better which is helping a lot.

 

I’ve also lost 27 lbs. which helps in moving around and doing things physically.

 

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

Because of my association with Dr. Hardy, I have become more educated about nutrition and about my thyroid issues, which I found out are more serious than I knew about.

 

I can now understand why I feel the way I do and realize it’s a physical condition and not just feeling I’m going crazy.

 

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s office to your friends and family members?

Definitely!

 

Please feel free to share additional comments.

My husband is also going thru the weight loss program and has lost 53 lbs.


Oftentimes, our regular physicians just prescribe another pill, which sometimes helps with the current problem but they don’t go into enough detail about what the cause is and how to fix it.

 

Dr. Hardy tries to find the causes and alleviate them through diet and nutrition.

 

It’s nice to have alternative medical options!

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?

The Washington County Wellness Program. 

  

What prompted you to select Dr. Hardy and his services?

Knowledge of his work and his help with others I have known. 

I wanted someone with all the services he provides. 

  

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

I had been at my ranch getting a house trailer ready to move to my property. 

I worked on it all of one day, at the end of that day my back was hurting a little, sat down to eat dinner and get ready for bed and it (my back) started hurting like I have never felt before. 

I could not find a way to sleep that it would not hurt (pain scale of 1-10, it was a 20). By noon the next day my right leg (thigh) was numb and has not recovered completely yet. 

  

Before you came to Dr. Hardy for help, what other treatments and/or services did you try?

Regular Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. 

  

After seeing Dr. Hardy, I went to my Primary Care Physician and he gave me pain meds and referred me to Pain Specialist Dr. John Obray, MD. 

  

After my Primary Care Physician and Dr. Hardy looked at the MRI, I had 2 options… 

Dr. Obray or Dr. Hardy. 

  

Did Dr. Hardy diagnose your health condition(s) with x-rays, MRI and or blood tests that were not used previously by other Health Care Professionals to diagnose your health condition?

MRI of my lumbar spine. 

  

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

I had 2 options, surgery or ?, so I called Dr. Hardy and he did acupuncture on my back and wanted me to get MRI before doing any chiropractic work. 

  

By the end of the first acupuncture session the pain was going away, felt a lot better (pain scale of 1-10, it was an 8). 

  

By the second session the pain was gone, and that night was the first night I got a full night of sleep (drug free) with no pain in a long time (20-30 years).

The numbness my leg had not changed at this time. The strength in my right leg was considerably less than my left. 

  

What were the results of the above treatment(s) or services you received?

After each session of the Accu-Spina, IDD therapy and acupuncture my leg and back strength increased. NO PAIN! 

  

The numbness was slow to go away but with different acupuncture points the feeling started to come back. It is not all the way back but I am 100% better than I was before. 

  

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

No Pain and No Surgery! 

  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s office to your friends and family members?

Yes and already have told many others. 

  

Please feel free to share additional comments.

With the reading of the MRI, I had a choice to make, Dr. Hardy or Dr. Obray. 

Down the road to surgery or not. 

  

With the help from both Dr. Obray and Dr. Hardy no surgery was done. 

 

Dr. Obray suggested going with the treatment from Dr. Hardy to avoid surgery and
I am 
grateful I did.

I was tired all the time and my weight went up after a car accident a couple of years ago.

I spoke to a doctor on the phone to schedule an appointment. 

The doctor began talking about medications available. 

  

What were the results of the above treatment(s) or services you received?

I did not schedule the appointment and was shocked the doctor wanted to prescribe medications without any tests. I began looking for a healthy alternative / holistic approach to my tiredness and weight gain. My co-workers referred me to Dr. Hardy. 

   

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

Weight Loss and my constant lethargic energy levels. 

  

What were the results of the treatment(s) and/or services you received from
Dr. Hardy’s office?

I have been required to have a health coach to maintain a lower cost health insurance premium. The health coach was more of a hastle for me and never liked being forced to consult with him, someone I don’t know over the phone. 

  

I began by weight loss with Dr. Hardy and Karen 3 weeks prior to my annual health assessment and I no longer needed my health coach. 

 

I was down pounds and my blood levels were normal.

I have gained my zest back, just as it was before my car accident. 

My family life and relationships have improved and my productivity level at work has improved with constant energy levels. 

  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s office to your friends and family members?

Yes, I would. 

  

Please feel free to share additional comments.

All I can say is thank you to Karen and Dr. Hardy for helping me get my active lifestyle back on track. 

  

With them, I was able to correct a couple years of poor health choices in the matter of a couple of months. 

  

I wish I had gone to them much sooner.

Lori Bushnell
Washington County Employee

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?
Washington County - HR Department 

 

Why did you select Dr. Hardy and his practice?

Allergies and NAET practice. 

  

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

Extremely tired, to the point of feeling exhausted and very foggy thinking. 

  

Allergy problems with seasonal allergies, all year round and also indoor allergies, of every type, also food allergies. 

  

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

I have much more energy and think much more clearly. 

  

Dr. Hardy did some blood testing and found that I have gluten intolerance and Hashimoto’s Disease, which causes tiredness and foggy thinking. 

  

He has also cleared up the majority of my allergies. 

  

The only allergies that haven’t been cleared are the ones we haven’t worked on yet. 

  

Before you came to us for help, what other things did you try?

Went to a chiropractor and got adjusted and aligned, but it didn’t help the tiredness. 

  

Went to an allergist several years ago for over a year and did allergy shots. 

They made me worse off. Took many allergy meds to try and clear my head.

Have talked to doctors for years about being excessively tired. 

  

What was the outcome of the treatment or treatments you received?

I feel 100% better. I have energy and I am thinking more clearly. 

I still have a ways to go, but the treatments thus far have helped me immensely. 

  

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

Feeling good and I got rid of some excessive fat around my stomach area. 

The fat went away after I quit eating gluten products, which my body is allergic to. 

  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s services to your friends and family members?

I do and I have. I’m trying to get my mom to go and see him. 

Her insurance doesn’t cover his services and treatment, but the MD’s haven’t been able to help her. 

                                                     

If so, which of Dr. Hardy’s services did you recommend to friends and family members?

The best treatment for them. 

None of our problems are the same. 

The nice thing about Dr. Hardy is that he is so knowledgeable and trained in so many different areas that he can find out what is wrong and go about fixing it, instead of treating symptoms. 

 

Please feel free to share additional comments about Dr. Hardy’s services.
One of the things that I like most about Dr. Hardy is that everything he does is natural.  

   

Dr. Hardy is trying to find out what is causing a problem, instead of treating the symptoms.  

  

The medical profession, in most cases, seems to only treat symptoms, put you on a drug and then another drug to offset the symptoms of the drugs!  

  

The drugs from the pharmaceuticals in most cases seem to end up causing more harm than good, not to mention how expensive they are. I have been taking a thyroid pill for 10+ years.   

  

I have not once been asked about or tested for Hashimoto’s Disease, which is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid. 

  

The gluten intolerance has also played a roll in all of this and I have never been tested for it.   

  

I’m now 48 years old and all of my symptoms have gotten progressively worse over the years and I’m sure they would have gotten much worse had Dr. Hardy not tested me and found out what the problems were.   

  

No medical MD has ever suggested that I was tested for either of these.   

They would do blood tests and check my iron, year after year, because of my tiredness and my iron level has always been fine, but I continued to progressively get worse.  

   

The NAET allergy treatments have also worked extremely well for me.   

  

It seems as my thyroid, over the years was continuing to be attacked, I was much more susceptible to allergies, because my immune system had become so weakened.   

  

Dr. Hardy has taken me through a series of treatments from mold and fungus to seasonal allergies to work area and home allergies.   

  

The difference it has made to me is amazing and it’s also been in combination with removing the gluten from my diet, that I feel like I am functional again.   

  

Dr. Hardy is so well informed in so many different areas that I’ve never had a question he couldn’t answer. I have learned so much about diet and nutrition from him.   

  

I am going to have to my mom go in and see him, she has been having dizziness problems for the past year to year and a half. She has been put on high blood pressure medication, which hasn’t helped.   

  

Again, it seems that her symptoms are being treated instead of finding out what the underlying problem is. Even though I don’t want this to sound over-the-top, I couldn’t be more grateful and thankful to Dr. Hardy for helping me to feel so much better.   

  

Unlike most MD’s that rush you in and out of their offices, Dr. Hardy takes time to answer any questions and explain things thoroughly, so you know why your doing something and how it will help.

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?

Searching on the internet

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s services to your friends and family members?

I do all the time. Yes! 

I recommend that they be willing to “go the distance” and not expect a quick nor easy fix. And that he is right that there are lots of layers. 

  

My husband would say this too…I was in bad shape when I finally gave up on MDs to try to figure out what was going on with my liver. In the “marker” blood tests that Dr. Hardy also had me do, it was not just my liver, but my heart was showing potential problems. 

  

Nine months later, those indicators had been cut in half and were in the normal range. I fully believe that Dr. Hardy saved my life. MDs never would have found the core causes. 

  

I was 48 years old and probably wouldn’t have made it a few more years in the shape my liver was in. 

  

With his expertise and experience, and especially the biofeedback methods, he pinpointed problems that wouldn’t have shown on medical tests. 

  

My husband and I know we were led to Dr. Hardy through prayer. What I know from talking to other people who try to find the help he has given me is that he is truly unique as far as alternative doctors go too. Because of his desire to learn, he is able to draw from many different areas of his education for the way he treats his patients. 

  

He truly “would have to be cloned” to find someone who is able to work with patients the way he does. 

  

I also appreciate that he listens and admits when he doesn’t know something himself. 

  

I drive 4 hours for my appointments with Dr. Hardy, but I know he is worth the effort because of how he has helped me.

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy?
  

Presentation at work.

Why did you select Dr. Hardy and his practice?

Because regular doctor visits for me have been totally ineffective, and the doctors’ solutions to my pain has been physical therapy – which didn’t work – and lots of tests and surgery that may or may not help.
 

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

Chronic knee pain in both knees, left wrist pain, extremely low energy and blood pressure issues, along with headache pain. 

 

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

Pain management.
  

Before you came to us for help, what other things did you try?

I have had two sessions with physical therapy for my knee pain. No results.   

I was told they could do surgery and scrape my knee cartilage but I refused.   

I was prescribed celebrex, which I did not take.   

I don’t want to be on pain medication all my life!
  

What was the outcome of the treatment or treatments you received?

I have had better emotional balance. My headaches have almost disappeared.   

My left wrist pain is almost gone. I can type and move it without pain.   

I am currently being treated for my knee pain, and in only two visits I have very little pain and have much more mobility. I can go for walks and not hurt the next day!
  

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

It has been refreshing to talk to a doctor who doesn’t want to rush me off to do MRI’s, CT scans and surgery to fix a problem that they can’t even assure me will even work. I like that Dr. Hardy has the skill and knowledge to know that not everybody is the same!
  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s services to your friends and family members?

Yes!! My sons and daughter have seen remarkable changes to not only the way they feel but they are more active and enjoy life in ways they could not do before. We know how our body’s work with the foods we eat and which ones to avoid or eat less often. 

 

If so, which of Dr. Hardy’s services did you recommend to friends and family members?
Food allergies and Drops  

My daughter has knee pain: Has been seeing Dr. Hardy for acupuncture.   

My other daughter is coming in from Florida and I will pay out of my own pocket to have her see Dr. Hardy! 


Please feel free to share additional comments about Dr. Hardy’s services.
I believe that everybody is different. I enjoy having the choice to do what is best for my body and my family. If it wasn’t for Dr. Hardy, I would be looking at having at least two surgeries with all the cost involved with them, lost time at work, lost productivity and a substantially larger cost to the insurance company for my heath care.

I would be prescribed heavy pain meds, which are addicting, and large doses of antibiotics. What a waste of time, money and health that would be! I am so grateful to Dr. Hardy. I am almost pain free—I have a much better outlook on life and now can enjoy it with my family—surgery free!

Employer and co-workers 

  

Why did you select Dr. Hardy and his practice?

Was always a firm believer in natural medicine, herbs and acupuncture. 

Has helped me in the past, but wasn’t able to afford it. Insurance didn’t cover it.
  

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

Bad joint pain, especially in my knees, very painful. 

Fatigue and stress. 

  

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

For my pain, he did acupuncture, which helped a lot. I really don’t like needles, but I would choose that instead of pain. Actually, you really don’t feel the pokes; none at all, very minimal. The drops I take help me out a lot as well. This is definitely a better way of healing and feeling better.
  

Before you came to us for help, what other things did you try?

Didn’t really try anything—wasn’t able to afford any of the above mentioned. 

Didn’t want to take any meds for the pain.
  

What was the outcome of the treatment or treatments you received?

Great!
I can walk, dance, climb stairs without any pain now. 

Thanks to Dr. Hardy, I feel Great. 

  

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

I feel better for one thing. Dr. Hardy does explain everything so you can understand and is a good listener. 
  

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s services to your friends and family members?

Yes, I already have. I actually brag about it.

Please feel free to share additional comments about Dr. Hardy’s services.
Everyone can benefit from Dr. Hardy. What’s better than being healthy and feeling better?

How did you hear about Dr. Hardy? 
 

My employer, when my health insurance listed THS as a benefit. 

  

Why did you select Dr. Hardy and his practice?

I have had fatigue and muscle pain in my neck and shoulders for many years. 

I did not want to be on muscle relaxers or pain meds. 

  

What health problems were you having that you came to Dr. Hardy for help?

Fatigue and muscle pain in neck and shoulders 

  

What health problems did Dr. Hardy help you with?

After brief testing (covered through insurance) Dr. Hardy has treated my fatigue with drops and my neck and shoulder pain with acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments. I am not a “fan” of needles at all, but had no problems with acupuncture.
  

Before you came to us for help, what other things did you try?

Chiropractor and drugs
  

What was the outcome of the treatment or treatments you received?

The outcome has been very good. I feel like I have more energy and I feel more 

healthy overall.
  

What were the most positive aspects of your experience?

Minimal testing has detected food allergies and how they have an effect on your 

organs and overall health. 

  

I was unaware of how certain foods I ate have an effect on my body. 

  

I have been feeling better after treatments began and educated as well. 

 

Would you recommend Dr. Hardy’s services to your friends and family members?

Yes.

If so, which of Dr. Hardy’s services did you recommend to friends and family member?

Acupuncture. The problem with most people is that their health insurance won’t cover it so they are not able to afford treatment. 

  

Please feel free to share additional comments about Dr. Hardy’s services.

As mentioned above, as long as health insurance companies are not covering this benefit, it is a huge loss to anyone that is taking prescriptions for pain or having surgery that may not be necessary. 

  

This alternative treatment will save insurance companies and benefit the patient. Both sides would definitely benefit.

"I found Dr. Hardy to be the most knowledgeable and passionate about his practice. Dr. Hardy helped me with my headaches, upper back pain and lower back pain from pregnancy. Dr. Hardy was a true professional who always researched ways to treat a problem naturally without pumping the body with medications.

The Nutritional Therapy gave me a lot more energy. his flexible schedule to accommodate a patient and the up-to-date patient education were most effective to me. I recommended to friends and family members going to Dr. Hardy for adjustments and massage therapy. Digestive and Detoxification treatment is great for weight loss. I really miss his services since he moved from Los Angeles!"

"My friends referred Dr. Hardy to me. Dr. Hardy treated me for back, neck and wrist pain. I got relief from this pain immediately. Dr. Hardy's bedside manner and his willingness to try different things impressed me. The massage and chiropractic as well as acupuncture were most effective for my problems. I would recommend Dr. Hardy to all of my friends and family."

"I selected Dr. Brian Hardy as my doctor because I met him while he was still a student and I was very impressed with his professionalism and skill. I had neck strain on two occasions, which completely debilitated me. I was unable to raise myself out of bed or to drive and was in great pain.

Not only his skill, but his personal concern for the stress in my life which added to the pain and discomfort I was feeling was a positive aspect of my experience. I have recommended him to several people who have had back and neck pain.

Of all the chiropractors I have ever visited or heard about, he is by far the most educated and the most effective. His additional studies in Chinese medicine add yet another layer of expertise, making him one of the best physicians I have ever had. i say these things with real conviction because I have been the victim of medical malpractice by a gynecologist, and I am very reluctant to recommend anyone. Dr. Hardy however, I recommend without reservations."

"Dr. Hardy was highly recommended to me by a friend. Originally, Dr. Hardy helped my soft tissue damage in my back, but over the course of 9 years he has helped me with any number of ailments and problems I have had from a sore/stiff neck, sports injuries, stress, nutritional improvement, cleanses, and just overall health and positive well-being.

Dr. Hardy has an amazing healing energy and knowledge of chiropractic practice, ancient Chinese medicine, and the most modern technology combined for an amazing all encompassing method and outlook toward my health and injuries. he was always able to not only make my problems heal and feel better, but set me on a course for a healthier lifestyle.

At one time, I went to Dr. hardy with several injuries and instantly felt better after that one session. A positive aspect was jus actually meeting and knowing Dr. Hardy was the best part. I have never had a doctor that literally cared as much for the welfare of his patients - physically, emotionally, and mentally. his vibe was always positive and his extreme knowledge and genuine care always set me at ease and gave me confidence in his practice. I especially love the acupuncture. It seemed to me to be the most relaxing, healing thing I have ever taken part in.

I would recommend everything - the adjustments and mostly the acupuncture. Again, Dr. Hardy was a bit of a lifesaver for the years that I saw him. I was extremely sorry to see him leave my city. However, I learned much from him and to this day my experience with him has put me on a healthier path."

"I selected Dr. Hardy because of a referral from a good friend of mine who had back pain and went to see Dr. hardy on a weekend - my friend spoke very highly of his treatment and outcome.

Predominantly, my health problems are lower back pain. Although over the ten years I've seen Dr. Hardy, he has been helpful in treating a number of muscle-related or nerve-related problems. The outcome of my treatments have been extremely favorable. not only did I see Dr. Hardy for many years but I also recommended a number of my friends to him.

Dr. Hardy was always concerned about your total health - so he would inquire about my eating habits or exercise or the vitamins I should be taking. He was always available to answer questions or recommend alternative forms of treatment. I found many of his services effective - especially the chiropractic care.

This not only included the excellent and professional care I received from Dr. Hardy, but the additional massage therapy he offered through other professionals. I tried to take advantage of all these services as preventive care for my body. I recommend Dr. Hardy's chiropractic care to many of my friends."

"I was referred by a friend who raved about Dr. Hardy and how the doctor looked at the patient's whole body as he treated the patient's health. I have a thyroid problem and because of this problem I believe in total maintenance on my body.

I also had some back trouble and numbness in my shoulders and hands. he was very helpful with the latest nutrition info and getting my body aligned. I trusted him and he took his time with me and shared his knowledge in health options.

Dr. Hardy was very laid back but reassuring and humble and has a passion for his work. Ultimately, he made me healthier."

"Dr. Hardy is skilled and knowledge in a wide variety of natural medical practices. Many of my friends had recommended him, saying he was not only very good at what he does but he also was caring about each patient's personal needs and he wanted to help bring each of them to a speedy recovery.

I came to Dr. hardy when I was struggling with an eating disorder. Dr. Hardy helped me with finding an alternative solution to the psychological and spiritual problems I had suppressed with my eating disorder. the total outcome of my treatment with Dr. Hardy was a balanced and healthier outlook for myself.

I was able to face the truth about my illness and look at the real issues rather then focus on the symptoms like most other "professional" doctors had tried to do. the most positive aspect I experienced was RELAXATION which is the first step in healing.

The most effective service of Dr. Hardy was his kind heart. The concern he takes with each individual patient is outstanding and truly one of few. I recommend both treatments of stress reduction and acupuncture."

"I chose Dr. Hardy because of his integrative medical practice. He expertly combines homeopathic remedies with Chinese medicine, comprehensive testing, and nutritional counseling.

He has an extensive knowledge of how the body's systems work together - and how a problem with one system can place strain on other organs and body systems.

Thanks to Dr. Hardy, I have improved immunity, stronger adrenal function, better memory, more energy and more motivation! I'm off thyroid medication and I can handle stress much better! I always believed I could feel better and the help and knowledge I received from Dr. Hardy empowered me to help myself."
