Another story about a gentleman and his wife that have been searching for an answer to his pain issues for many years and many, many thousands of insurance (and personal) dollars to no avail.
The story begins many years ago, the gentleman had polio as a child.....
His immediate problem was severe pain in the low back, hip, thigh, knee, ankle, and foot (on the right side). He walked with a bad limp and was bent over like a very old man. When he wanted to get up from a sitting position, he would place one finger on the side of his neck to relieve the pain temporarily so that he could move to another position without super severe pain attacking him. He had been this condition for quite a long time.
His most recent physician saw what the patient had done and asked him, "how did you do that, what just happened?" The patient explained that he had accidentily discovered it one day while rubbing his neck. The doctor commented that he had just spent 3 months in China trying to learn things like that. So, this open-minded doctor referred the patient to Acupuncture. He mentioned that he had seen some truly remarkable healing done while he was visiting in China.
The patient was referred to an MD who practiced acupuncture in an area closer than Jacksonville, Fl as the patient lives in the Lakeland, Fl area. The closest referral (to an MD who practiced acup) was in Clearwater.
When the patient phoned the MD for an appointment he found that the MD no longer practiced Acupuncture. Upon hearing this they were dismayed about the prospects of getting help. However, the very next day, a close friend mentioned that while she was at a Wellness Center where she exercises, they were all talking about this local Acupuncturist that actually works miracles. Not one person, but everyone in the place had experienced some form of healing from this particular doctor. Well, they thought, we have to give this guy a shot.
The patient's wife collected the data about how many specialists and how much money was spent before coming to see Dr. Beardsley. She has estimated that it has been SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS with 15 doctors.
At the end of the first treatment, the patient walked out with almost no pain in the leg and was able to move his foot back in forth just like his good foot. The first time he can remember being able to move the foot that way. He came for a total of 12 sessions and is a new man today. He and his wife have sent me many, many patients since then.
He also had shoulder surgery in 1998 which left him unable to lift his arm above the level of "shaking people's hand" without excruciating pain. This poor man was really suffering and had pretty much no hope of improvement. No matter what tests, treatments, therapies, drugs, etc., there was ZERO IMPROVEMENT.
Well, the frozen shoulder (11 and 1/2 years) story is very similar. I thought I would never see the day that I could raise my arm to comb my hair or do anything that I used to take for granted with that arm. When the Acupuncture doctor looked at me, he snickered and said, "let's see what this voodoo stuff can do for your arm." He looked at my tongue, felt my pulses, played with my ears, stuck a couple needles in my leg and said, "now lift up your arm." I proceeded to raise my arm all the way over my head like nothing was wrong. It has stayed that way for over two weeks now and I went out on the weekend and cut down a Camphor tree that was about 4 feet in diameter. I'd have to say the his "voodoo stuff" worked like a miracle.
WOW, I should have come here a very long time ago.
Thank you Dr. Beardsley for your "MAGIC"

Dear Dr. Beardsley,
Acupuncture treatment was suggested to help my mother cope with her long term depression and sleep disturbance, after 50 years of torment.
For 35 years, since she was 18 years old, epilepsy plagued her monthly. This affected her personal and family relationships with others. She continually battled frustration, anger and sadness. It even went to the extent of interfering with her marriage creating animosity, resentment, loneliness and isolation from others.
Due to the continual anxiety, her sleep patterns became very erratic and disturbed. She would experience terrible nightmares, awaken frequently and not be able to return to restful sleep. As a result, this left her with tremendous anxiety, feelings of intense anger, animosity and high blood pressure.
After experiencing your exceptional ‘Shen’ acupuncture treatment (Dr. Beardsley’s protocol treatment), you have given her back her life. At 72 years of age, she no longer experiences those vivid terrorizing dreams which kept her awake all night.
Her mood has vastly improved. The feelings of sadness and depression have lifted and her anger has almost disappeared, allowing her to be calm and focused, flexible to experience life that she once missed.
I am very thankful for your expertise and for helping me. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to acupuncture and you for giving me back her life.

Thank you for making me feel like I am alive again! After having surgery
(boy would I have done it differently if I had known Chip's talents!)
I had very limited movement in my arm. The surgery was rotator cuff.
My arm and shoulder were in constant pain and it took me forever to get dressed.
During the first treatment I was told to lift my arm and I carefully inched it up expecting it to hurt and to be VERY limited.
To my surprise it went up with no pain and no restriction in my movement.
I dropped a paper on the floor and forgetting that I couldn't reach to the floor,
I just went for the paper and again surprise (!!!!) I picked it up without ANY pain or restriction.
Chip makes you feel so comfortable. Chip takes his time to explain what he is doing and you
IMMEDIATELY feel better.
I had never even thought of acupuncture to cure things like this.
When a medical (western) doctor tells you to have surgery, you just listen.
This idea of acupuncture has been around a long time and has proven itself.
So next time I will get a second opinion and just go see Chip and I am sure he can
heal me much better than the "doctors".
Thanks again Chip for making my life normal!
My name is Jeff and this is my story about Irritable Bowel Syndrome
(and several other things since meeting Dr. Chip Beardsley)
For the past few years I have been going through several stressful periods of time at work due to the economic situation we are in.
With the onset of this stress, I began to have several different health issues.
1. Fear of flying came over me
2. Terrible, heavy night sweats so bad that I would actually have to change my pajamas every night (sometimes twice a night).
3. Stomach pain that turned into IBS (having to go the bathroom 10-12 times each day, especially after eating anything).
I was in such bad shape that I was losing weight, could not eat much without having diarrhea which made me weak and very worried about my condition. The stress and bathroom issues dominated my day, my life, my health, sleep and everything else.
Then I started going to my MD for tests to see what was going on and to get the problem under control before I became a physical and mental wreck. I needed to be healthy so I could do my work and support my family. It wasn't getting any better.
Don't get me wrong, I really like and respect my MD, but after 6 months of tests and drugs I was NO BETTER, if fact I was getting worse. The doctors told me that I may need surgery. Since I had surgury before to correct a weak spot in my colon, they did a CTscan to be sure it was not a recurrence of the same. The test came back negative just like all the other tests. So, I was left in LIMBO about my condition and I was losing weight due to the fact that everytime I ate anything I had to go to the bathroom.
This situation now caused more stress due to the fact that no one seemed to be able to pinpoint my problem. After much consideration I sought a different route, I was becoming DESPERATE. I was wasting away and no one could help me.
Well, someone recommend that I go see this "miracle worker" guy who does Acupuncture. I wasn't really looking forward to needles all over my body, but I needed help so bad that even that thought did not stop me from going to the appoinment.
Much to my surprise, the experience was rather pleasant and relaxing. The truth is, I had absolutely no faith that this could help.
BUT IT DID. I WENT TO LUNCH AFTERWARDS AND HAD NO PAIN, DID NOT HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM AS USUAL AFTER EATING. TODAY IS ONE WEEK SINCE MY FIRST TREATMENT (I HAVE HAD THREE IN THE SAME WEEK DUE TO THE LONG-TERM NATURE OF THE PROBLEM). I MUST TELL YOU THAT I HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT SINCE THE FIRST TREATMENT. NOT ONE INCIDENCE OF DIARRHEA OR ABDOMINAL PAIN WHATSOEVER.
I PLAN TO CONTINUE THE TREATMENTS FOR ABOUT 2 MONTHS. ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENTS TWICE A WEEK FOR 3 WEEKS, THEN ONCE A WEEK FOR 5 - 6 WEEKS. THE PLAN WILL DEPEND ON HOW I REACT AND WHAT THE DOCTOR THINKS I NEED TO TAKE (HERBAL FORMULAS) AS MEDICINE.
AND BY THE WAY, I HAVE LOST MY FEAR OF FLYING AND MY TERRIBLE NIGHT SWEATS HAVE NOT OCCURRED A SINGLE TIME SINCE BEING TREATED.
THANK YOU DR. BEARDSLEY, YOU ARE A TRUE MIRACLE WORKER.
My wife has stenosis in the lower cervical vertebrae in her neck. She has pain and limited movement in her neck. While visiting her mother in Lakeland a couple of years ago, our nephew told us about Dr. Chip and how successful his treatments had been. Shirley went for two treatments and almost immediately she could turn her head normally and the back pain was lessened.
I was in Lakeland just recently and…..
The tick problem in Kentucky is greater this year as we had such a mild winter. I had not only tick bites but also tick larvae burrowed under my skin mostly on top of my feet. I went to a Doctor in Lakeland but he did not understand the problem and could not help me and then I thought of Dr. Chip. He showed me a non invasive way to kill the larvae and by use of needles, stopped the itching.
The problem now is how to get Dr. Chip to move to Louisville.

I had horrible migraines for 10 years of my life. I went to a dozen different doctors, specialist, and neurologist. I had many MRIs, cat scans, and all sorts of tests done, they prescribed countless different medications and my migraines were getting worse. When I went to see Dr. Joseph Beardsley (Dr. Chip) I was having migraines 3 times a month. They were getting completely out of hand and affecting my daily life. The first time he treated me; my migraine went away instantly, which was an amazing relief. I had about 5 or 6 more treatments with him, and since then I have not had another migraine. That has been about 3 years ago, and it still blows my mind. I have seen Dr. Chip help so many people including my family with all different kind of health issues. I have learned so much about my health and natural medicine. God knew what he was doing when he created us; my body can heal itself without being on medications for the rest of my life. Meeting Dr. Chip was a huge blessing that I’m glad i didn’t miss out on.
