“There was a period of time about two years ago where my heart rate randomly went to 200 at rest. I could barely breathe during those times. It was awful. I was irritable and easily stressed out. My Graves was a sudden onset. I took methimazole for a few months, then went off the medication. What I was doing wasn’t working, so I ended up visiting several endocrinologists and looking for alternatives to taking medication for the rest of my life. I found Dr. David Lepp who works with patients with autoimmune diseases. Under his watch, I have become gluten free and have been much happier. I am like a different person when the disease is under control. I am happier and so much more vital and alive than I used to be.

I was afraid of exercising for a whole year. I figured that if my heart rate hit 200 at rest, I might die if I exercise. What would happen? I just wasn’t willing to risk it. Under Dr. Lepp’s care, my hormones became stabilized and I tried exercising more and more. In fact, I now play ping pong, badminton, and rock climb regularly. I even signed up for “Tough Mudder”. I’m very excited to participate.

“David is a gentle, determined and brilliant healer.  His understanding of conventional healthcare and alternative medicine is something that produces healing results.  In the final analysis, I can recommend Dr. Lepp because he cares.”

-M. L.  (CEO)

“Dr. Lepp is a thorough, precise, perseverant and positive health partner.   I would recommend working with him to anyone who has a complex health history and is ready to find out what is really going on and feel better again.”

-A.L.  (Therapist)

“Dr. Lepp has been my Doc for 4+ years and has helped me regain and maintain my health. He has done cranial manipulation on me (I hate it when my head’s not on straight!), applied kinesiology techniques (NET – amazing!), and routinely monitors my labs and diet (functional nutrition). He has made such a HUGE difference in my life!”

-J.S.  (Scientist)

I recommend Dr. David Lepp without hesitation! In the past, my body was very injury-prone, and I would constantly make emergency visits to my former chiropractors and get adjusted over and over until the adjustment would finally stick. It was exhausting, and I found the same injuries and issues would eventually return. It’s different with Dr. Lepp. He has gotten to the root cause of my physical issues and helped me turn them around. And he has given me long-term solutions that have had staying power. My body is in a much stronger and stable place since following his recommendations, and my pain and frequency of injuries are greatly reduced. He has also worked with me to set up a plan for my care with the goal of resolving my issues so that eventually I will not need to see him. His care is personal and very specific to me and my needs. I feel extraordinarily luck to have found Dr. Lepp. He has made an enormous positive difference in my life. Thank you, Dr. Lepp!

I came to Dr. Lepp on a recommendation from a friend, having fallen on my butt at breakfast in a friend’s kitchen (the chair collapsed out from under me). He dealt with my issue with that in the first visit (no more pain), but I had been wanting for some time to find someone to help me with nutritional issues. I had been diagnosed as borderline diabetic (sugar=138) and was having other chronic problems (sleep apnea, proctitis, obesity, cholesterol problems). Within the 1st several months, under Dr. Dave’s care and instruction, we managed to lick the cholesterol issues by going organic, using some supplements he recommended, and watching out for good dietary practices. He also helped me find a new solution to my sleep apnea via a referral to a dentist who made me a passive dental appliance instead of the electrical CPAP I had to use before (so now I can go camping!)  We had also knocked the sugar down to 112 or so (still borderline), but we hit a plateau. So Dr. Dave dug deeper, and after some really recently developed blood tests were done, discovered that I’ve had a gluten sensitivity issue. Now, after a month on my new gluten-free dairy-free eating plan, I can finally state that we’ve licked the proctitis after 20+ years, and are well on the way to repairing the “leaky gut” problem that was aggravating many of the other nutritional problems. I’m down about 10 pounds now from my original weight. I feel a lot healthier overall. I’m preparing for another blood test this fall to see how the sugar is going. I’m still not great at exercising (there’s only so much a doctor can do for you!), but I know how to proceed now, thanks to Dr. Dave. And I know that I can rely on him to solve the tough problems (mine is pretty complicated, and traditional doctors hadn’t really helped), and to teach me how to play my part in my own healing. I really appreciate the doctor-patient cooperation that Dr. Dave emphasizes, and it has done me a world of good. Thank you, Dr. Lepp, and let’s keep up the good work!

I have been seeing Dr. Lepp for over a year now for all my injuries.  He has been outstanding and fixed all my injuries with no reoccurring issues.  He was able to fix one problem with just one visit after a specialist had worked on it for 18 months! I would highly recommend Dr. Lepp to anyone. If you have chronic pain, go see him. It’s time for it to stop.

-T.N. (Business Owner / Trainer)

For 8 months I had suffered with what I thought was plantar fasciitis. I hurt and I limped. I had endured this once before years ago and had received relief only after a long and expensive series of cortisone shots. On a family member’s encouragement, I went to see Dr. Lepp. He did a thorough investigation and analysis of what was going not only with my foot, my posture, my gait, and my lifestyle, but also what was going on in my diet that needed help so I could heal. In a much shorter time than my last bout, I am happy to say I am walking and hiking hours at a time with no pain and no limp. If you have foot or leg problems, I recommend you go see him and follow the treatment plan he sets up for you. It is great to be on my feet again, and I must say, I don’t think I could feel as good as I do without his caring attention and knowledge. He is a very talented practitioner.
