"My 6 year old son developed tics suddenly before my husband and I left for a trip. In addition to the tics, his behavior and emotions were extremely unstable and not normal. He was very fidgety, cried about everything, and constantly had tics.
The experience with Dr. Butchart was really neat. The doctor spoke with me for about 10 minutes on the phone prior to me making an appointment so that I could discuss Jacob's symptoms. Once I scheduled the appointment, the office manager gave me the doctor's direct email so I could send a very detailed description of what we were experiencing. You don't know how much this meant to me. The most important thing to me was that my son not feel different or weird. I didn't want him to sit and listen to me explain all that we were seeing in him. I felt this could seriously upset him further. The doctor was so wonderful in his discretion with us.
Initially, I did want to look into what could be triggering the tics. Were there environmental or food sensitivities causing this? But after meeting with us, the doctor suggested that be a 2nd course of action if our 1st course didn't work out. I really appreciated this because this testing would have been very expensive and would have been more to put my son through.
We met with the doctor for 2 hours! It was unbelievable to have the undivided attention of a doctor that isn't cramming in patients and rushing from room to room. He talked for 2 hours with us and we never once felt that we were being rushed. My shy son was so incredibly open with him. He answered his questions very maturely. He drew pictures for the doctor while we talked. I felt that the doctor did an amazing job at truly understanding my son.
After about 6 days of taking the remedy and following Dr. Butchart's recommendations, we saw drastic improvement. Before receiving the homeopathic remedy, my son would tic constantly. And he had numerous types of tics. He was always twitching and jerking. It was extremely sad to watch. In addition to the muscle movements, his emotions were very imbalanced. He would have these mood swings, cry for no reason, become very irritable and was easily agitated. After a week of the remedy, the neck jerks were completely gone, he was no longer shaking his head, he wasn't smelling everything in sight, and his body seemed so relaxed. In addition, he was his normal self, easy-going, pleasant, not easily angered, patient, etc. Through all of this I have been able to email the doctor letting him know of all of the changes in my son. Thank you, Dr. Butchart. We feel that you saved our son. "

"When I was facing yet another course of chemotherapy for metastatic ovarian cancer, and one I had hoped never to experience, I relayed my fears to Dr. Butchart. He responded quickly saying 'You have no other choice at the moment, look at the chemo as your friend. It will help you get through it. And he has been doing so these past months for which I am so very grateful."

"I first started seeing Dr. B in February and really can't say enough good things about my experience. At the time of my first visit, I had been very sick for over ten years with what became increasingly life-threatening in the last 2 years. Through the years, I had been to M.D.'s of all flavors and colors, D.O.'s, acupuncturists, herbalists.....you name it, I had done it! I had an exhausted lists of tests and protocols that had failed to help. There was even a considerable amount of self-teaching with regard to nutrition and health as well. Still, no one could help me and despite all of our efforts, I grew sicker. When I went to see Dr. B for the first time, I truly felt like he was my last hope.
My complicated case involved so many organ systems and advanced manifestations of illness that it was clear time was of the essence in beginning to halt and reverse the cascading process of disease. What I first realized about Dr. Butchart was his inexhaustible capacity for listening to me with genuine care and compassion. And really listening. After listening intently, he delivered with clarity what would turn out to be an uncannily accurate description of what he thought was behind my illness. At that time it was only a theory, but as we ordered the appropriate tests it became obvious that he had actually nailed down what many other specialists and doctors had failed to see.
I am currently experiencing health that I have not felt in so long that I can't seem to remember when! I am still pinching myself to see if this is a dream. What I truly appreciate about Dr. Butchart's approach is not only its unbelievable effectiveness, but its truly holistic objective. As a doctor, he has what I would call a talent at balancing the best of many medical worlds. He has an extensive knowledge of herbs, nutrition, homeopathy, and emotional components of illness. "
