I am 66 years young, on no medication, and I feel great!
“My husband and I first came to Whitaker Wellness 12 years ago—and since then, we have returned for a regular physical every year! Today, I am 66 years young, on no medication, and I feel great!
“I had no health problems when we first came to Dr. Whitaker’s clinic, but I was intrigued by his approach. Imagine a doctor prescribing supplements! And what a difference it has made in our lives.
“I have early cataracts, and my ophthalmologist wanted to do surgery, so I started taking your vision supplement. At a recent exam, she was pleasantly surprised that my eyes are actually getting better. And when my local physician recommended vitamin D and fish oil, I told him I’ve been taking both for years and showed him my excellent vitamin D level. He used to pooh-pooh my trips to Whitaker Wellness, but last year he marveled how most women my age are on 3-5 medications while I am on none.”

You have helped us ward off future problems.
“When my wife Suzanne said she was coming to Dr. Whitaker’s clinic, I was a big-time skeptic. I was a healthy but skeptical 60-year old and thought this was some kind of voodoo vitamin stuff. But Dr. Whitaker’s scientific approach to preventive health convinced me otherwise.
“Whitaker Wellness is way ahead of everyone else and has given us many tests and treatments long before our doctors at home had heard of them. Years ago, the clinic found that my C-reactive protein was high and started me on a program to protect against cardiovascular disease.
“I am a 70-year-old man and I feel like I’m 20. I attribute a lot of that to what Dr. Whitaker has done to keep me on track and in a state of good health. I’m so glad we didn’t wait until we were sick to come to Whitaker Wellness. You have helped us ward off future problems. We will be back next year and the year after—until we are 100.”

I Can’t Believe It’s You. You Look So Good.
My husband was ill, and I was taking care of him, and not taking care of myself at all. One night, he said, “Franceen, you need to take care of yourself. I would like you to be taking natural vitamins for your high blood pressure. I don’t want you taking strong medications.” I said, “I don’t know where to go to find out about that.” That’s when he told me that he wanted me to go to your clinic.
Before I started with you, I was depressed. I was overweight. I was sad. I was miserable. I thought there was no hope for me. I had avoided the doctor because I knew I was really getting sick. During my time at the clinic, I could not believe the miracle that took place. You put me on a wonderful program. I needed it, because my blood pressure was 190 over 90 and my weight was 155, and that was a lot for me because I’m 5’2.” My triglycerides and my sugar levels were high.
But your clinic just gave me such hope and encouraged me so much to get on the right program. I got all the vitamins. Since July of last year, I have not missed taking any of those vitamins. I exercised. I got a treadmill, and I went on it every day. Six months later I went down to 134 pounds from 155. My blood pressure went down to 138 over 76 from 190 over 90. All my fats and all my blood sugar levels went down, just on all the natural vitamins you have in this program.
I just went to my girlfriend’s 50th birthday party on Saturday. Every one that hadn’t seen me in a while was amazed. They were coming up to me and saying, “Franceen, I can’t believe it’s you. You look so good! You look so healthy.” These are people that maybe I see once a year, and any other time I never got compliments. It was the same Fran in the moo-moo or big clothes. But I can wear nice young clothes today and look good and feel good. I was so proud to say that I was on your program, and happy about all it has done.
After a while, when you start seeing the results, it’s not a thing like “Oh, no, the vitamins! It’s like “Yes! It’s working for me.” It makes you feel good, even if there’s a lot to take.
So I want to thank you for your program, and for helping me. It really and truly has worked for me, and it still is working for me. I think this is the most wonderful thing that you could do on earth for people.

I’m Not the Same Woman as I Was
I am 74 years old and I really had very good health until I turned 70. Then things started going bad. I didn’t have a real doctor so I would have to go to one of those walk-in clinics when I got a sore throat or something like that. I had to get myself a real doctor when my legs started hurting, and he diagnosed me with type 2 diabetes. My blood sugar level was over 300, and my blood pressure was elevated too.
I continued to see that doctor because he is a nice man, but then he started talking about having to amputate my toes and my feet and surgery for a hip condition. That is when I came to Dr. Whitaker’s Wellness Institute.
Since then I have not been the same woman. At Whitaker Wellness, they have absolutely miraculously taken care of practically all my problems. I only occasionally have stiffness in my hip and some neuropathy and retinopathy.
I’ve lost 25 pounds since I’ve been here without even trying and without being hungry, which is amazing because I was hungry all the time before. It is a wonderful thing to be able to fit into some of the clothes that I had put away in the back of the closet. I still have a few pounds to go and a little ways to go as far as my cholesterol and blood pressure are concerned.
Furthermore I love coming here to Whitaker Wellness. Everyone is so friendly that I felt like I was among friends the minute I walked in the doors. At this point I start to choke up because everyone has been wonderful to me and it certainly shows. Even old friends tell me that I haven’t looked this way for ages, and I certainly haven’t felt this way for ages. I cannot praise this place enough. I have many things to be grateful for and among the top things are this clinic and the people here.

I Feel Like a Young Chick Again
Where to start. My husband and I have been reading your newsletter for 10 years. My husband and I both have used many of your suggestions with very good results. I have hypertension and wear a pacemaker, and I weigh 138 pounds.
I also have irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, and flatulence that became so bad I was afraid to walk into a store. I went to my GP who put me on a drug to control the problem. Nothing happened so two weeks later I went back in. He said frankly, “I don’t know what to do for you.” I have tried through the years to eat right and exercise 6 days a week, taking Sunday off. I do a lot of volunteer work so I’m a very busy lady.
I came home and told my husband I wanted to go to the Whitaker Wellness Institute. He made the appointment two days later. My doctor there gave me a thorough examination. She told me I had candida and I immediately started an IV immune drip. She also recommended blood work and a new vitamin regimen. In addition, I was told to cut sugar out of my diet.
Now here I am, 77 years young and 18 pounds lighter, and I feel like a young chick again. I have nothing but praise for your clinic. Everyone was so extra special to me. I have been bragging about your clinic and now a friend of mine is going there and receiving treatment. Sorry this is so long, but God Bless you and your staff. Just keep on with your wonderful work. If anything else comes up I’ll surely come back.

Celebrating Decades of Good Health
“In 1981, I had a TIA [transient ischemic attack or ‘mini-stroke’]. My doctor in Scottsdale didn’t have any suggestions, and my wife had just read about the Whitaker Wellness Institute in the newspaper. Your approach made sense, so I came out for a week. I’ve followed your advice ever since.
“I still eat the healthy diet I learned about at the clinic and have never had a weight problem. I drink a lot of water and Low Sodium V8 juice. I go to the gym two or three times a week and work out on an elliptical machine. One of the things I learned during my first visit 31 years ago was the importance of nutritional supplements. I remember how you acknowledged that some of us were worried about taking all these supplements, so you said, ‘I’m going to show you how to take 25 pills all at once.’ And you did! Now, that made a lasting impression. I still take quite a few vitamins every day.
“At age 86, I have no real complaints. I occasionally feel a little unsteady when I walk, but I have no aches or pains, and the only drug I take is a low dose of verapamil for my blood pressure. The only time I ever see a doctor in Scottsdale is to have it refilled every two or three years. However, I read your newsletter, Health & Healing, and follow your advice religiously. After all these years, I still consider Dr. Whitaker to be my physician.”
