Some of the best Whitaker Wellness success stories are from patients who come to the clinic as a last resort. Their doctors aren’t able to help them and they’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, so they look outside of conventional medicine for answers. One of these patients is Irenka Stojakovic from Long Beach, CA.
“I initially came to the Whitaker Wellness Institute because for years, I had been in nonstop pain and was taking lots of medications. My Whitaker Wellness doctor prescribed bioidentical hormones, which helped a lot. When she suggested checking the toxic heavy metals in my body, I didn’t really understand how that could help, but she was persistent, so we did the test.
“I was surprised to learn my lead level was sky-high. She recommended EDTA chelation therapy, and I had 30 treatments last year. Now, I’m like a brand-new person. I feel good, I don’t have any pain, I can exercise, and for the first time in years, I feel like my normal self. Whitaker Wellness changed my life.”
When a patient presents with multiple symptoms with no clear cause, we often test their levels of heavy metals. And when testing reveals an overload of toxins, we suggest a course of EDTA chelation.
EDTA binds to lead, cadmium, and other heavy metals and removes them via the urine. This dramatically improves the health of the vascular system and often results in enhanced energy and sense of well-being. Studies show that chelation also improves symptoms of cardiovascular disease, especially in patients with diabetes.

Whitaker Wellness: A Five-Star Healing Experience
Some Whitaker Wellness success stories evolve over time. Joan and Charles Fedler, from Chico, CA, have made several visits over the years. Here’s why they trust Whitaker Wellness to keep them healthy, happy, and coming back for more.
“Our original trip to Whitaker Wellness was in 2001, after I was diagnosed with diabetes. I followed the protocols my doctor prescribed (exercise, weight loss, supplements, IVs) and over time, my A1C fell to 4.9—the normal range! This experience renewed my faith. For the first time, I felt I had a choice and a say in my healthcare, an alternative to ‘ram-down-your-throat’ medicine.
“My husband and I have returned for tune-ups, and we found Whitaker Wellness to be all we remembered and more. All the therapies together in one location are the backbone of the clinic. I’m sure there are other places to find these treatments, but not in one place and certainly not priced this reasonably. The attitude of the staff is also part of the healing process, and every morning we were met with smiles and encouraging words.
“Whitaker Wellness’ Back to Health Program is a five-star healing experience. The clinic provides real hope in situations that sometimes seem hopeless.” — Joan Fedler
“For the past several years, I have suffered with Crohn’s disease, poor kidney function, and hypertension, but the only advice I got from my doctors was to lose weight and take medications. Then, while my wife and I were in Southern California, I had significant blood in my urine, and my wife insisted I go to Dr. Whitaker’s clinic.
“My doctor there discovered a large kidney stone, which was treated by a urologist, and prescribed low dose naltrexone for my Crohn’s, which has helped tremendously. She also suspected I had sleep apnea, and this was confirmed on testing. I now use a CPAP machine and have marked reductions in my blood pressure and an increased feeling of well-being. Had I not gone to Whitaker Wellness, I would still be suffering and wondering what was wrong.” — Charles Fedler
Treating Anxiety Without Drugs
Whitaker Wellness success stories that involve using safe, natural alternative treatments instead of dangerous prescription drugs are some of my favorites. Karen from Redlands, CA, shares her story below.
“I began experiencing intermittent chest pains and heart palpitations. I’d been under a lot of stress and was exercising pretty vigorously so it scared me. Even though I’m only 34, I was convinced I was having some serious cardiovascular problem. One of my good friends had had similar problems and ended up on Xanax and Wellbutrin. I was interested in a non-drug approach so I went to the Whitaker Wellness Institute instead.
“My physician talked to me in depth about all aspects of my health, and after a treadmill stress test and echocardiogram ruled out any problems with my heart, she diagnosed me with stress and anxiety. She then completely revamped my supplement regimen adding magnesium, GABA, B-vitamins, fish oil, and a high-quality multivitamin. I was also prescribed a course of acupuncture and neurofeedback.
“I was lucky: The diagnostic tests helped put my mind at ease and the new supplements helped reign in the anxiety—I no longer felt like I was going to randomly drop dead. This was almost six months ago and I’ve had no more problems. In fact, I feel so good I recently completed my first half marathon. But you can bet if the chest pain or palpitations return, I’ll hightail it back to the clinic for the additional therapies.”
