Testimonial, Susanna B

“Several years ago I went to an open house that was being held by Dr. Pautz. I found Dr. Pautz and her staff to be very warm and welcoming.  Everyone was very professional and the center was filled with positive energy and sense of calm. 

A year and a half ago I found myself suffering from gastric distress as well as anxiety. I was concerned about going to a physician that would simply try and prescribe drugs for my anxiety. I remembered the feelings I had about Persephone Healing Arts Center and decided to give Dr. Pautz a call. I was able to schedule an appointment within a couple of days. Before examining me she really wanted to hear my story about how I was feeling and what I thought was going on. She agreed with my thoughts that my anxiety was most likely the cause of my other issues and she respected my needs to deal with the situation without using traditional medications. We talked at length about using alternative treatments and also about supporting the treatments with food, environmental and spiritual changes. She also sent me for medical work up to make sure that there was nothing else more serious going on.

By the time I returned for a follow-up visit three weeks later, I was already feeling much better. Over the next several months we continued to meet and refine the treatments that Dr. Pautz was suggesting. It is now been about a year and a half since my journey with Dr. Pautz began and I am grateful every day for having found her and her clinic. I no longer suffer from the fear and anxiety that was causing me to be anxious, depressed and in general living a life that was unrewarding and lacking joy.  I feel like an entirely new person and I look at the world in a different way, feeling like I have gained much wisdom from my journey. There is joy and a sense of looking forward to the future that was lacking before, as well as much more satisfaction from my personal relationships. I was also able to make the progress without using anti-anxiety medications. Although I know if I had the need to use them for a while I would have had that option. I was just lucky that I did not need that level of support. I continue to make periodic visits to the center to reinforce the progress that I have made and to continue to make more progress. It is such a happy, positive, warm environment. Which I feel has been very important to me in this hectic chaotic world that we live in today.

I believe that disease is a manifestation of the many stressors in life and the way we deal with them.  As a result treatment should involve more than today’s traditional medical model.  I would highly recommend Dr. Pautz to anyone looking for a holistic physician.

Thank You Dr.  Pautz for being my physician and now my friend!”
