My experience with Dr. Mindel has been very positive! I have been very pleased with his knowledge of the body and understanding alternative methods to healing. For me, my pain began to subside after Dr. Mindel took me off of night shades, dairy and sugar, paired with the baths. Once I began my new "diet" (sometime in the month of Sept) it was about 3 weeks later than I realized I wasn't living with the constant pain. I continue to stay off of all night shades, most dairy and breads completely. The sugar part I am not so great at, but the constant day-to-day pain is still gone.

After many years of misguided treatment methods and considerable cost I stumbled on Dr. Mindel to find out if he could help with what I believed was a Candida problem. In a single visit we created a strategy to rid my body of the real culprit "parasites". Right after just a few days the health supplements began working and I had the first unassisted bowel movement in a long time. Needless to express I am very positive that I am on the right path and would certainly strongly recommend Dr. Mindel to anybody whether it is for general health maintenance or a challenging health problem.

I've been seeing Dr. Mindel for almost 3 months now, and for the first time in 2 years I feel like I am on my way to feeling better. The constant pain in my face from the sinusitis has subsided, and I have regained a normal appetite. Overall, I am feeling happier and more energized, and am excited to continue down this path to see how much further it can take me. I would highly recommend setting up a visit with Dr. Mindel.

Dr. Mindel is like no other doctor I have seen. He is incredibly intuitive, patient and understanding. He has far reaching knowledge and an ability to seemingly talk to the body to find out what it needs is extraordinary. Working with him not only through adjustments and exercises but with a change in diet and supplements has made a world of difference. Within only a few weeks I was in much less pain and I have felt continual improvement. For the first time I am starting to believe I could live a life without pain. Also, for the first time I can remember I have gone six months without being sick. I'm so grateful to have found Holistic NYC.

Dr. Mindel helped me to become more in tune with my body and within a couple of months I was already able to identify specific foods which set off the symptoms. He was also able to help me with the bloating and occasional headaches which is a side effect of the medication I am taking. My appointments leave me relaxed and feeling refreshed (especially after a few minutes on the Spinulator) and are something I look forward too every couple of weeks. While Crohn's is something I will be dealing with potentially forever, Dr. Mindel gave me several more tools to use to minimize the problem and helped train me to be more aware of the effects of the food I eat, various stresses I experience, and was instrumental in getting me back to my normal life. I used to wonder if going the holistic way could really help, but after seeing Dr. Mindel, I know it can.

I first heard about Dr. Mindel from a friend who had been seeing him for vocal problems and was wildly enthusiastic about the results that he had gotten in a short period of time. Understanding Dr. Mindel's approach to be a holistic one, I decided to see if he could help me with a chronic digestive disorder that I had been dealing with for 10 years, managing it with some success but never really getting better. From my very first visit with Dr. Mindel I noticed a difference in my general feeling of wellbeing immediately after treatment. Now, after only 8 weeks of treatment I am feeling like a new person. No more stomach pain in the morning, no more constant awareness that something is wrong with my digestion and I must be very careful, restful sleep, loads of energy all day long, etc. Already I feel 11 years younger - Dr. Mindel has managed in a short period of time to restore me to a point of health that I had before my illness.

During my first visit, Dr. Mindel was able to quickly assess my problem and outlined a treatment program that not only focused on diminishing the cyst and the ovulatory pain, but also one that focused on bringing my body into balance to prevent further problems. Dr. Mindel put me on a multi-vitamin regimen that quickly resolved my issues in a matter of days. I was elated and relieved that I found a solution to my problem that did not require prescription drugs or surgery. To this day, I continue to see Dr. Mindel for different ailments and have been continually satisfied with my results. I make it a point to recommend his practice to anyone who is open to a more natural, holistic approach to medicine.

I have been lucky enough to be seen by Dr Mindel for four months now. I came to him with degenerative discs in my back and neck, as well as huge variations in energy levels, sometimes resulting in jaundice like symptoms. I also had my father become life threateningly ill during this time, and experienced extreme stress from much travel and worry. One of Dr. Mindel's strengths, aside from his kind manner, is his ability to work with whatever shows up. He seems to have a wide range of knowledge that he pulls from for the great variety of symptoms I had. He does this with much ease of spirit, very timely, and never in a rushed manner- quite a feat for a nyc doctor! Since seeing Dr. Mindel, I feel stronger, less stressed, and confident that our work with my body has started progress toward health I have not experienced in years. And because I am a Personal Trainer and LIfe Coach, I consider myself to view his skills from a personal and professional level.....

After a car accident in'03, I saw just about everybody one could see for neck pain. When I found Dr. Mindel, he was my last hope for help. What drew me to Dr. Mindel was his wisdom of the healing power of holistic medicine. My health problems involved: My neck, I was in horrible shape and I was having 2-3 migraines per month. With Dr. Mindel's chiropractic care, pin- pointed nutrition and recommended bath soaks-- my body has healed greatly. My migraines alone are down to 1 every 2 months. Dr. Mindel is one of the most professional and wonderful doctors you could ever meet. He really listens to your cares and concerns. He is one of the rare ones that genuinely cares about his patients. I have only been seeing him for a couple of months now and I already feel great!

After just 2 months of treatment for leg cramps, a pulled hamstring, and stress, I am feeling much healthier under the care of Dr. Mindel. I have worked in retail for over 15 years and my body has suffered from standing for several hours a day. I have enjoyed some relief from foot soaks, massages, and stretching but none have addressed the root causes of the discomfort throughout my body. Dr. Mindel and his assistant use an intuitive and gentle approach that makes me feel nurtured unlike mainstream medical treatment. I have also made huge dietary changes with Dr. Mindel's guidance which has helped me lose weight and develop a clear mental state in less than 2 months.

I have had vaginal dryness for almost four years. Occasionally, after sex, I would also experience yeast infections. I have tried many over-the-counter medications, but nothing was helpful. I tried some home remedies (teas, yogurt,etc.) but it seemed that things were just getting worse. During that period I was having unexplained headaches, dry skin and I was irritated by little things. I have spent three years trying to figure out what was wrong with my body and how could I fix it! I changed Doctors six times. They each told me there was nothing wrong with me and that I did not have a yeast infection because the lab results came back negative. They told me that maybe I was just stressed. I found Dr. Mindel on the internet. I have been with Dr. Mindel for three or four months. My symptoms (headache and irritability) have disappeared. My yeast infections have become less frequent and my overall health has improved.
