God's healing power
Our patient testimony for how God is using Dr. Clift to bring healing, wellness and restoration to the people of Greater Flint is proven in their personal stories. Here are just a handful of stories that reveal God's healing power through chiropractic care.
Before Adam began care at A New Life Center, he had suffered from severe migraines for seven years. The migraines affected his comprehension and memory but he was told for two years that it was a lifetime condition. He was walking with a cane because his knees and legs would give out on him constantly. He had a lack of strength and no energy. At one point, he was taking six different types of medications and experiencing their negative side effects. Emotionally, Adam was depressed. "With God I had hope but there was still a feeling of hopelessness."
After just three weeks of chiropractic care, Adam no longer needed his cane. After six weeks, he was back to work after being on leave for four and a half months. His migraines were gone. "Emotionally, I was 100% better. It was a complete 180. My family and friends knew what I had gone through and they can not believe the improvement."
Arthritis In My Hands
"Dr. Clift is the best! I suffer from arthritis in my hands, which I use daily in my line of work. With his treatment, I am able to do everything with minimal effort, until my next visit. He is by far the only doctor that I have gotten substantial results, and that includes all the "medical" doctors that I have seen. I highly recommend Dr. Clift to everyone!"
The Pains of Pregnancy (sciatica)
When I first started treatment at this office, I was 3 months pregnant with our 4th child. Although I was enjoying good health, besides daily morning sickness, I was dreading the onslaught of sciatica, a condition of extreme pain, radiating from a pinched nerve in the pelvic/hip region, all the way down one or both legs, to the toes. Chronic back problems seemed to be part of my family's life. I had had sciatica in my previous 3 pregnancies for several months each time. The pain was often debilitating and at times immobilizing. I began treatment once a week until, at Dr. Clift's recommendation; I should need to come in more often. The amazing thing was that I had only 3 days of sciatica throughout my whole pregnancy, when normally it was at least 3 months or more! Only in my last 8 weeks did I come in 2 or 3 times a week, and I couldn't have done without it. Dr. Clift spent so much time with me, realigning my hips, pelvis and spine, that tended to shift so easily, because of the pregnancy-induced relaxation hormones.
Although I had to have a c-section (my L-5 vertebra had slipped forward, a condition brought on by decay in that region, not allowing me to labor this time), my recovery was aided by Dr. Clift in such a way that I don't believe I could have handled it without his regular care, by the grace of God.
I praise God for the gift He has placed in Dr. Clift's hands, that allows us to all benefit from it, and to enjoy greater overall health as a result. I look forward to continued treatment, not just for me, but for all of us, including my little infant. To God be the glory!
Debilitating Migraines for 30 years
I had been suffering with migraine headaches for 30 years! It was not uncommon for me to have 22 migraines in a month. They were debilitating and were often accompanied by nausea. In addition to the migraines, I also had limited movement of my neck.
Since starting chiropractic care, my migraines have drastically decreased. I went from suffering with 22 migraines a month to only having 6 a month!
This treatment has been life changing for me. I can now function on a daily basis without worrying or even thinking about getting a headache.
I truly feel that God directed me here, and I feel so blessed!

92 Year old feels younger
I have been under treatment for only a short time, but the differences I have noticed are great! I don't feel like I am staggering when I am walking, and I don't have the feeling of being unbalanced. Now at church, I can walk straight up the aisle looking ahead and not have a fear of falling. I used to have to step sideways sometimes to keep my balance. I can also hear much better, and have even been able to hold a conversation with someone even if I forgot to put in my hearing aids!
I am 92 years old, and I feel so much younger, like about 80!
76 and Loving Life
My name for Dr. Clift is Miracle Man! Between his treatment for me and the exercises he recommended I have flexibility I have not enjoyed in years. I have added 30 yards to my golf drives and the pain and most of the stiffness is gone. All of this at 76 and 8 stress fractures makes me very pleased. I cannot give high enough praise to the Miracle Man and his extremely capable staff.
It's Not Just for Back Pain
"Before I was introduced to chiropractic, I believed the jokes I saw on TV. Now, I am very glad I came to Dr. Clift. I didn't know the extent of my problems until I saw the x-rays. I understood why I was in constant excruciating pain and could not sleep. The biggest suprise for me was that even my eyes could get help and I am getting help for my eyes. I have remarkably improved in all areas including my ability to sleep soundly now. As for Dr. Clift, I have never met someone like him. He cares and you know he does! He knows what he is doing so you are able to relax."
