Before I became a patient of Dr. Hubbardís, I suffered from insulin resistance, morbid obesity, lower back pain, terrible chronic heartburn, hypertension, and Celiacís Disease; I became ill every time I ate certain foods. I had been to see at least four different medical professionals, ranging from Doctors to Registered Nurses at my college and elsewhere, and none of them could discover what precisely was wrong with me nor did any of them know how to fix any of my ailments. I was told about Dr. Hubbard by my Dad and was skeptical because he had told me that she wasnít a traditional kind of doctor. At the time I didnít know what holistic medicine was nor did I understand Dr. Hubbardís approach. However, I was in so much pain and discomfort from my laundry list of ailments that I was willing to try anything.
After following the treatment plan that Dr. Hubbard put me on, I honestly do feel a lot better than I have in a long time. I no longer become ill after eating as I am now eating a diet more appropriate for Celiacís. My blood pressure is now completely under control and a bonus improvement has been my dramatic weight loss. I was a size 40 waist when I first visited Dr. Hubbard and now I am down to a size 34 waist. At my cousinís wedding, I was asked to be a groomsman and when I saw the wedding photos I couldnít help but notice how good I looked in every single picture. I am finally at a healthy weight and body size and I donít ever want to go back to the way I used to be.
I would absolutely recommend Dr. Hubbard to anyone because she is patient, understanding, and when she tells you what lifestyle changes you must make she will also supply an explanation. And if you are on the fence about making Dr. Hubbard your doctor, let me tell you this, she heals you without expensive prescription medications. You will have to make a few lifestyle changes, but the benefits will become evident very quickly. I am sure that like myself you will never regret the decision of making Dr. Hubbard your doctor!

To speak about Dr Hubbard it is necessary to tell my story. Late 2007, at age 73, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, an incurable cancer of the white cells in the blood that attacks the bones and kidneys, and told that my life expectancy was three to five years. I did suffer kidney failure and was placed on dialysis three times a week, in addition to chemotherapy twice a week. Needless to say, my body was under assault. I needed help. Good fortune brought Dr. Hubbard into my life. I called her my angel from heaven. She gave me the support that I needed to get through the dark days. At times it has been difficult to make the changes she recommends, but I have really worked at it and she has been there for me every step of the way. For me it is more about the things I don't have to do and don't need to take than what I do. I no longer need dialysis. My chemo vacation has been extended from two months to six months. I have had no bone fractures and don't need any pain medication. I am living with the cancer and life is good. I truly believe I would not be as well as I am today if it were not for Dr Hubbard. She is remarkable in her dedication to her patients. We are a team!

I went to Dr. Hubbard because I had a cyst on my hand. She has a positive attitude, and gave frank, honest responses to my questions. She was able to treat my cyst, which is now shrinking.
Also, I have diabetes. With her help, I was able to reverse my diabetic complications and received tools to maintain my overall fitness. No doctor that I have had has ever worked so hard and been more helpful with specific ways to improve my health, or answered my questions and concerns more completely.

I started seeing Dr. Hubbard in August of 2011, after having gone to the emergency room with heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and dizziness. My doctor told me I had developed anxiety attacks, and tried to attribute it to psychological issues. That really confounded me, as I have a wonderful life and family. I certainly wasnít going to take the psych drugs he recommended. My wife urged me to see Dr. Hubbard. My wife has been working with Dr. Hubbard for many years for various issues and has had much success.
In my case, I came to Dr. Hubbard weighing in at 245 pounds (Iím only 5í 8Ē). Within 8 months, I lost 65 pounds, went from a size 44 inch waist to a 34 inch waist, and I have kept my current weight of 180 pounds for over 2 months now. It is really a joy to be able to tie my shoes without getting winded or just simply bending over to pick up something. I can sit cross-legged again.
Most importantly, my doctorís have taken me off all medication Ė no more blood pressure and blood sugar meds, and no more statin drugs.
Concerning the anxiety attacks, through testing, Dr. Hubbard found that I was suffering the effects of adrenal fatigue. She put me on a protocol to deal with my cortisol and norephinephrine levels. I am no longer foggy headed, and I donít feel like I am going to feint. I am still improving in this area, and I am finding that I am regaining my confidence and joie de vie.
Dr. Hubbard also has been treating me for peripheral neuropathy caused by an old back injury. She has been using acupuncture to reduce the tingling in my feet. Also through acupuncture, she is helping to reduce numbness in my left foot from another old injury.
If Iíve learned anything from Dr. Hubbard it is that everything is interrelated. She explains in detail, and takes the time to educate you about what is going on with your condition. And she uses plain English and examples you can relate to. She explained to me about insulin resistance by describing trucks delivering insulin to the docks of the cell and being turned away.
I readily recommend Dr. Hubbard to friends and family. Her knowledge of nutrition and acupuncture is extraordinary. The fact that she teaches medical students at Loma Linda Medical University, considered one of the finest medical schools in the country, speaks volumes of her knowledge and abilities. She has certainly been the key to my improving health and well-being and I am so grateful she is a part of my medical team.

Dr. Hubbard has treated me for many years. She explains clearly and patiently any problem and is very thoughtful in her treatment. I was able to avoid at least one surgery due to the acupuncture treatments. I feel that my quality of life has improved with her support, and am extremely grateful for her gentle manner, knowledge, and experience.

Fourteen years ago I had a severe accident involving my left leg. Originally, the doctors wanted to amputate the leg past the knee. One doctor said he could save it. Over a period of 1.5 years, my leg was taken apart 4 times. The last time after the surgery, the doctor told me I would be in pain for the rest of my life, and it would get very bad at times.
To make a long story short, I found Dr. Hubbard. She asked about my pain level on a scale of 1 to 10. I told her it has been ranging from 15 to 20. There had been times when I woke up at night crying from the pain. After my first treatment, I walked out of the office with just a little pain. To me, a miracle happened. After about four treatments, my pain was 90% gone. I actually feel like a new person. I am 64 years old and feel 25 years younger, with almost all of my pain gone.
I heard about Dr. Hubbard through my mother. I wanted to talk to her about anxiety, stress, and other issues. I selected Dr. Hubbard because of her dedication. After beginning treatment, I immediately felt better. I was able to sleep better and had less fatigue. I would definitely recommend Dr. Hubbard to my family and friends, and would tell them to try it and just give it two weeks, to see your results.

Four and a half months ago, my wife and I discovered an invaluable resource, Dr. Ionela Hubbard. She is an expert in Preventive Medicine, a professor at Loma Linda University, and has a private practice. I am a creative listener, trained in the sciences and have attended my wife's weekly appointments with Dr. Hubbard.
Dr. Hubbard explains the reasons for everything she does in plain English. The "why" is important as lifestyle changes are difficult to implement. Knowing why and seeing positive results helps her patients make those changes. Obesity, major illnesses such as cancer, immune system disorders, cardiovascular disorders and even trauma effects can be reduced or eliminated by patient discipline and Dr. Hubbard's guidance. Conventional medicine fixes what is broken but seldom attacks the root cause of the problem.
Dr. Hubbard is not dogmatic as most of us "fall off the wagon " occasionally. She helps the patient get back on track to great health. I would unabashedly recommend Dr. Ionela Hubbard to anyone who has health issues, major or minor, who wants a better life. I have seen the results, first hand, in a mere four and a half months.
