"Thank you so much for your wonderful recommendations. Life has been a pleasure! You help me reduce my joint pain and I look forward to exercising again. Before I didn’t think this would have been possible. You were always available, quick to answer questions and always exceeded my expectations. You truly are gifted."

"Dr. Rob, again thanks for the great assistance. You consistently help my mother during some of her toughest times."
"When my sister spoke so highly of you I knew I had to come and make an appointment on my next visit to New Jersey. You have helped me solve health problems that I had for years."
"I really can’t believe how powerful hypnosis is. I accomplished more in 6 months then I have in 3 years of therapy. I have better self esteem, motivation, and I am now a more positive person. I used to be a worry wart and negative about everything in life. Dr. Robert your service is fantastic."

“I am so glad I consulted with you. The chemotherapy I was receiving was causing me to lose weight. Through your diet I was able to put the much needed weight back on and keep my immune system strong. Even when I had trouble getting food down you were able to work out a way for me to get my much needed calories. I still avoid those foods you told me would weaken my immune system and I feel you really helped me during my treatments.
- Mildred Harnack,
“I have nothing but great things to say about The Banish! Program. I am 53 and have smoked since I was a teenager. I have tried to quit countless times. Cold turkey, patches, gum, zyban, you name it I tried it. All except hypnosis. I'm not even sure how I found out about your site, but I decided to sign up. Right after the session I felt different. Very little cravings and no cheating. I have been smoke free now for 5 months. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I have never been able to go more then a week or two without backsliding and returning to smoking. I am so delighted that your program worked. I have told several people about it and will continue to spread the word if anyone is trying to quit.”
“You're a hit. We received a lot of positive feedback regarding your programs. Your really provide a great service to the community. Thank you for the all the hard work in making our programs a success. We look forward to working with you again.”
Central School District, NY
“Since I started working with Dr. Robert I haven't had a flare up of my ulcerative colitis.”
“Your were the third nutritionist I saw in 7 years. I never had anyone spend as much time and ask me as many questions as you did. You are very thorough in what you do. My acne cleared up, my energy came back and I feel bad saying this, because everyone wants to lose weight, but I gained the weight I needed.”
-Mary Lou, Maywood, NJ
“The migraines I have had during my PMS week are much improved. Your advice worked.”
“I met Dr. Robert at a health fair a year ago. We spoke for a while and I knew I had to consult with him in regards to my daughters asthma. Since working with him she has needed less of her medication and her asthma is much more manageable.”
-Alexis Varner, NJ
“You really helped me advance my career by helping me overcome my fear of public speaking.”
-Brian B. Lawyer, NJ
“I had out of control blood sugar and couldn't stop my cravings for bad foods. Dr. Robert gave me a realistic diet I could follow along with a few supplements to help my body. Now my blood sugar is perfect and my food cravings are gone. I also lost some weight.”
-Sheila T, Nurse, NJ
“My cholesterol is down below 200. Thanks for your guidance."
“My boyfriend went out and signed me up to see Dr. Robert, knowing how debilitating my depression had become. I was skeptical, because anything I’d ever tried in the past that promised relief never worked.
I was really surprised at what Dr. Robert told me. I had no idea the negative effects my habits were having. I couldn’t believe that in just one week I was feeling so much better!"

5 Alternative Treatments/Remedies for
Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Anxiety is an emotional and physical state with symptoms like apprehension, panic, fear, dread, uncertainty, and worry.
The physical symptoms that often accompany the emotions of anxiety include insomnia, sweating, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, heart palpitations, chest pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Feelings of anxiety become a problem when the symptoms become excessive and last for longs periods of time. This causes emotional distress that interferes with normal daily living. An anxiety disorder can be acute and is often referred to as a panic or anxiety attack.
The symptoms of a panic or anxiety attack are a sudden, intense bout of panic, fear and doom combined with shortness of breath, excessive sweating and rapid heartbeats.
The causes of anxiety and panic attacks can range from emotional to lifestyle factors. Anxiety attacks can be brought on by stress or a traumatic life event, such as a death or loss of a job, while others can be nutritional deficiencies, allergies, toxicities, hypoglycemia, etc.
Some common triggers include caffeine, over-the-counter decongestants, withdrawing from alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, certain medications, asthma treatments and other addictive substances including narcotics.
Below are 5 Alternative Treatments & Remedies For Anxiety and Panic Attacks.
Some alternative treatments a holistic naturopathic doctor may prescribe are:
- Herbs, including kava kava and St. John's Wort as alternative treatments for anxiety. Another popular herb is Valerian Root that is used for its relaxing effects.
- Nutritional supplements such as calcium, magnesium, and vitamin B complex all support the proper functioning of the nervous system. They also aid in the production of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals which are often imbalanced in cases of anxiety).
- Exercising regularly is a good non-drug remedy that can help relieve anxiety. Your routine should include cardiovascular exercise, which produces mood-enhancing chemicals called endorphins.
- Certain breathing techniques can help ease a panic/anxiety attack. When an attack occurs, try this breathing technique: Inhale slowly to a count of four or five, pause for a second or two and exhale slowly to a count of four or five, wait another second or two and then repeat the cycle until the anxiety passes.
- Reduce or eliminate caffeine, alcohol and sugar or sugary food products and refined carbohydrates.
