fertile way, Edmonton Reviews (11)
I met her when she was doing her training. I had just finished having 2 consecutive car accidents within a 6 week period. I was on barbiturates, narcotics and many other Dr prescribed medication (18 pills in the evening and morning and numerous during the day) Sabrina knew my son, and offered to help me. Each week I would go to see her we would go through the questions and I would realize WOW that symptom had dissipated...a few weeks later another one had lessened. After approximately one year I was off of ALL pharmaceuticals ... on her concoctions (non of them were endangered species...that was her comment to help me to drink them) and able to have my quality of life back. She is dedicated to her profession like no other, she is a sweet and endearing soul that I cherish a relationship to this day with.
I have had acupuncture before, from a variety of practitioners, each with their own style - but always healing seemed to be something they did - with Sabrina it’s who she is… For her clients and for herself - I have teased her more than once that I truly believe that she has an elven bloodline - and even if that’s not true - there is something ethereal to her practice.. I can state unequivocally that her treatment truly did decrease the amount of anxiety I experienced on a day-to-day basis. Calgary’s loss is definitely Edmonton’s gain!"
A good friend of mine who had been seeing Dr.Sillins for quite some time, encouraged me to book an initial consultation to gain another perspective on my fertility issues. I had never experienced acupuncture and was nervous but met with Dr Sillins for the first time in November 2010 after ten months of trying to conceive on my own.
I was impressed with Dr.Sillins knowledge and bed side manner in discussing this very sensitive issue. She offered me concrete options to address hormonal imbalances and the stress I had been feeling after experiencing months of continued disappointment. I followed her suggestions and continued appointments every 2 weeks. During that time not only did the combination of the acupuncture treatments and supplements improve how I felt everyday; there was also a positive emotional impact as I felt I was being productive in my efforts to conceive.
On January 15, 2011, I was ecstatic to find out I was 6 weeks pregnant. My first email was to Dr.Sillins to share this amazing news and I continued sessions with Dr.Sillins throughout my pregnancy. My husband I were overjoyed when our beautiful and healthy baby boy was born on September 17, 2011.
Dr.Sillins has opened up my awareness of my body and to be aware of how everything is connected. She has been an amazing support to me and I am so grateful for her dedication and commitment to her patients.
Surgery was not an option for me but I was treated with whole brain radiation and we began a course of chemotherapy. With the regimen of chemo I ended up in the hospital twice for 3 weeks at a time with febrile neutropenia. This resulted in me having to have 16 blood transfusions.
By this time it was March 2011 and I was sent home to get stronger so that I could have more chemotherapy. I told my cancer was stable. In March my mother was also diagnosed with Stage IV Lung cancer and she passed away in May.
A subsequent CT scan in May/June showed the cancer had turned aggressive and had again invaded my brain and spinal bones, in addition to an increase in size to lung and lymph nodes.
Treatment with Dr. Silins started in early July 2011 and consisted of herbal remedies, as well as Traditional Chinese Acupuncture treatments. Dr. Silins also did research and recommended other treatments, such as Emotional Freedom Training and one on one energy treatments with other providers.
My most recent CT scan in September showed significant reduction in lung mass and lymph nodes.
I have found Dr. Silins to be compassionate and caring and would highly recommend her to anyone I knew. She really cares about her patients and goes to many lengths to treat them or find alternative treatment for them.
was recently diagnosed with Lupus. My sister was admitted to hospital this
past summer with odd mental behavior that began within the course of one
day. Our whole family was terrified as we didn’t know what was wrong with
her and weren’t getting any answer’s from the doctors in hospital.
When Sabrina heard what was going on, she drove three hours to see my
sister in-hospital and gave our whole family support. She helped us see
what was happening to our sister holistically rather than Medically.
Sabrina also got us in touch with numerous practitioners (Acupuncturist’s,
Naturopath’s, Energy Healers, etc.) in Calgary who made regular hospital
visits and, ultimately, helped bring back my sister.
Throughout the course of three months, with the help of those
practitioners and all the love and prayer sent our way from Sabrina, my
sister recovered. She is now free of psychosis, and is seeing a Shaman and
a Naturopath to get her health in gear.
With Dr. Sabrina Sillins’s help, compassion, and guidance my whole family
was able to emotionally and physically cope with that traumatic
I think they come in fleeting moments and within the capacity for kindness from people.
Sabrina and I were colleagues together from Chinese medicine school.
Sabrina has been gifted with many things; beauty, brains and a capacity for kindness that I have not witnessed very often in my life.
She has won the hearts and minds of so many of her colleagues, including the late Dr David Chu. Dr Chu was responsible for advancing our profession and having it recognized by the government of Alberta. Dr Chu had Sabrina work along side of him until his untimely passing.
Sabrina and I now reside in different cities, and I never hesitate to recommend her to people I meet from Edmonton."
