Shingles My shingles began on November 8, 2012 on the top of my head and down the left side of my face and neck. The chicken pox outbreak covered my left eye, half of my nose , cheek, mouth and chin. This part of my face, including half of my tongue were numbed and painful. The left eyelid would not open. My general practitioner prescribed medication and referred me to my optometrist who, with the aid of his nurse, forced the lids to part and inserted medication in the eye. A steroid was given and instructions to use this medication four times a day for one week. The following week, after re-examination, the sixth and eighth nerves found to be damaged. Again, a steroid was prescribed twice a day. Despite the prescribed medications, the eye retained a constant blur-as if water was constantly flowing in the eye. I was informed that there wasn't anything more to be done, but all would heal in time. I was aware that this condition might last months and, possibly, a lifetime. The following months I experienced constant, throbbing, headaches, and an unbearable itchyness. The use of various lotions to soothe my skin helped, but very little. My daughter, who is a patient of Dr. Zymler, heard the he was treating a person who had been suffering from the shingles a few years with no relief. This person was treated for shingles through the use of acupuncture and lazer therapy and was cured. Reluctantly, I decided to see if there was treatment for shingles through this method. I felt that medications were tried (and I even used nerve shield-not - FDA approved from a health store). I was tired of waking up in the morning and finding blood on my pillow and my fingers from scratching my skin in various places during the night. I followed all recommendations of hot and cold compacts throughout the day and night. The use of these wore thin and I became desperate enough to try anything and everything. This desperation was the best step, the best advice I ever took. After three treatments I had an appointment for my eyes to recheck the status. It was found that I no longer had nerve damage. The water fall in this eye was no longer there. With each treatment I found and continue to find that my severe headaches are gone and the unbearable itchyness is very low and not as painful. The pain on the top of my head still remains, but it is light and I am able to wash, brush and have my hair cut with ease. I can put hair rollers in my hair and sleep without pulling them out. At first I thought all this healing was wishful thinking, however, I know it is not. The relief that I am experiencing is indescribable. I am able to touch my left side of the face and neck. My tongue is no longer numb and I was able to have dental work done with ease. I still have pain on the left side of my head, forehead and the upper eyelid. I can feel an uncomfortable pulling in my eye, however, it is all very tolerable and mild. The treatments will continue as long as recommended and along with them, my confidence. Christine Wroblewski

November 1, 2013 I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for the wonderful treatment and care that I received through Acupuncture treatments in your office. I had been going to University Hospitals pain management center for seven years, receiving cortisone injections that gave me maybe 30 days of some relief, finally the doctor informed me there was nothing else not even another surgery would help my back get better. Prior To coming to see Doctor Zymler, I had lost all hope of ever recovering and being functional again after being told nothing else could be done. At the last Cortisone into my facet joints I experienced some problems from a tube being inserted in my throat to keep my airway open doing the anesthesia, it was after that I decided to seek him out for treatment. I had read in a book that acupuncture was helping a lot of back patients get back into the swing of life. I doubted it..but I felt it was my last result. After a few treatments I woke up one morning able to move better...I sat up in bed surprised that I felt better. I remembered being so excited that I went for a short walk feeling less pain then I ever felt since my injury in 2003.The first time I was ever able to walk around the block of my home since being injured. As I continued treatments, I started to feel like a new person. I am so happy that I tried an alternative course; acupuncture because through the skillful treatments of David Zylmer, D.D.C., I am in less pain and take no medication for my back condition. I am forever indebted to Dr. Zylmer and acupuncture treatments for relieving me of this debilitating condition. I am now able to work part time, twenty hours a week and I have hope that with continued treatments I will return to work full time in the near future.Whenever I meet others that suffer from a back injury the first thing I say is "you must go for acupuncture treatments, believe me is works, look I can raise my leg up again."Because of acupuncture treatments I am free of addicting pain medications.I am no longer depressed over my injury from work..but confident that now I am getting my life back. Thank you Doctor Zylmer, for not giving up on me and sticking me with those little life saving needles that have given me my life back. As you can see now I can go out and enjoy my life again, thanks to acupuncture. Bertha Toney
I have been suffering with GLOSSOPHARYNGEAL NEURALGIA since Sept. 2004. It is a nerve disorder that manifests itself as an extreme pain at the base of the tongue. The pain lasts from 3 to 4 months and then goes into remission for 3 to 4 months. While the disease is active, I take large doses of nerve medication in various combinations such as Tegretal, Lyrica, Neurotin, and Baclofen. These medication reduce the pain to a tolerable level but have severe side effects such as loss of balance, disorientation, and tiredness. After a few months of remissioin during the summer, the pain started again in Sept. of 2010. From that time until July of 2011, I used combinations of the nerve medications and had two surgeries for nerve blocks. None of the actions reduced the pain at all and the side effects from the medications were putting a strain on my life as well as that of my wife. I sought out acupuncture treatments as a last resort for severe pain from Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia. I started receiving acupuncture on 7/23/11. I felt no relief after receiving 3 treatments the first week . Wendy suggested my treatment plan should be daily until the pain disappeared. I continued to receive 8 more consecutive treatments and on 8/16/11 the pain disappeared. I then continued to receive a treatment once a week and at the same time started to wean myself from medications. Today I continue with acupuncture treatments every 2 weeks. I am PAIN FREE and take NO MEDICATION . I want to thank everyone at the clinic for all their help in returning me a a pain free normal life. I
A few years ago I went to a local "family owned" beauty salon. I asked for a medium cut with layers. I ended up with a very short cut (lots of layers, but none longer than 2 inches) and a tail in the back. For years I didn't get my hair cut and when I finally did I went to Best Cuts. I've been going there for years, but just recently started going to the one in Parma. I've been satisfied each time I went there even though I always get someone different. They do exactly what I need and they never complain if I choose something "out of a book" like some salons do. Their price is good too. If you sign up for their online haircut reminder service, you get an online coupon which you can just print out and bring with you. The last time I went in, I got a haircut and styling gel that was on clearance and walked out paying less than $20.00! Great price and great quality. The only thing I have to say that could be a bit negative is that when you go there, be prepared to wait. Sure, this is a bit annoying, but trust me, they spend a lot of time with you making sure they perfect your hair, and they never rush just because they are busy. And the fact that they are so busy says a lot for their business. People wait just to get their haircut, even though there are many other places nearby and inside the mall. This says a lot for their quality. I trust them :)
I have had the privilege of having the finest of care from Doc and his fine staff. I have a blown disc that has degenerated to a bone on bone state. Laura starts my treatment with the finest massage that you can imagine. She settles my back and on to the tenz treatment. Loraine and Ann get you through this phase and always make sure that they check on you often to make sure the treatment is working and that you are comfortable. Doc takes over and finds out how everything has been going since the last treatment and then does manipulation to complete the therapy. Karen completes your visit with setting up future treatments. She always has a smile and good words to say. That's a Grand Slam in my book and I will happily recommend Dr.Zymler and his fine staff to anyone and have had friends visit and agree with me. Thanks Doc and ladies. Standing "O" Craig Bevan 8-13-09
Kreate Studio is literally the best place you can get your hair done in Cleveland! The owner Ken does my hair, and he is completely amazing; he will spend like 2 hours with you analyzing your color, hair texture, and bone structure before putting together a custom look that emphasizes your bone structure and makes your eyes and skin color pop. My hair cut is so perfect that I don't even need to blow dry; I can just let it air dry and it falls perfectly into place every time! I am completely obsessed with my hair now. After Ken cut my hair, he also showed me different ways to style it, even pinning it up and taking it down for me. They are also the only place in town where you can find this entirely organic skin and haircare line called Intelligent Nutrients, which I love because I am pregnant and trying to avoid chemicals. I highly recommend Kreate Studio to everyone for a totally relaxing experience that is always anxiety free--because your hair turns out perfectly every time!
I have known Diana since the 4th grade, but I was a year older so we didn't hang together growing up. My wife started getting her hair done by Diana just before we got married, so I started going to her for haircuts then (28 years ago). When you go to Diana's you are greeted like you are one of her large family of friends. You can enjoy a cup of coffee while you wait for your turn, which is never all that long. She'll do a good job on your hair and you'l be out the door in no time with a great haircut or style job at a reasonable cost. I am notoriously tight with my money. But when my wife gets her hair done, at least it doesn't hurt the wallet like it would have if she had gone to one of those fancy named places. So if your looking for a new place to get your hair done at a reasonable price, check out Diana's Hair Care - I don't think you will be disapointed.
After a cancelation from my first salon I made reservations with for my wedding party, I was in a frantic search for a place to take my girls and myself to get all glam for my wedding day. I was SO LUCKY to have found Kimmi's Shear Success to do this for us! We had an amazing time that morning and everyone looked beautiful!! They were so accommodating and let us bring in anything we wanted to eat or drink and really made us feel at home. This was very important to me because this was the biggest day of my life and my nerves were going crazy but Kimmi and her staff took care of us and for that I am very grateful!! I would recommend this salon to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing environment to go and get pampered!! Thank You so Much Kimmi!!!
I LOVE TERI!!!! I first fell in love with her after my first Brazilian experience... She made me so comfortable in what I thought would be a truly awkward situation. I have been going back to her ever since AND now she does my hair! She makes me look good from head to toe! I was there for 3 1/2 hours today... I probably would have just stayed for the rest of the day if I didn't have stuff to do. Bottom line. GO TO THIS SALON... Let Teri wax you - she is a pro... Let her cut your hair, color it, OH and get a Brazilian Blow Out while you're at it! I just got one and it is AMAZING!!!!!!! If you don't make an appointment, you aren't looking nearly as good as you could be.
I have been a patient of Dr. David Zymlers' for 15 years. He is a wonderful and caring physician. I was told 15 years ago, by several doctors, that I needed back surgery on both my lumbar and cevical spine. I, along with Dr. Zymler disagreed. I am living proof that with the right care and the best doctor you can have a better quality of life than with surgical intervention. Dr. Zymler, and his staff, are the VERY BEST at all the alternative medicines. We now live in Florida for the winters, but I continue to see Dr. Zymler in the summer. With his help and continued support I will live a wonderful healthy life. Kay F. Diulus Retired Brook Park Police Officer
