“It is never too late to try to improve your health!”

Having been a semi-professional athlete in the sports of women’s basketball and field hockey, my feet pounded over many miles of bumpy terrain, causing misalignment of my back. Stepping into a hole one day, I experienced severe knee pain, only to find out years later that my knee pain was actually being caused by a misalignment of vertebrae in my neck and lower back area. Visiting several medical doctors and chiropractors did not relieve my pain.

Traveling to competitions in various towns, our teams made many fast food stops…needless to say, the countless cheeseburgers and sodas consumed, quickly led to my weight gain and extremely high cholesterol.

Having been retired for several years, and having been under great stress as a caretaker for a relative with pancreatic cancer, I also began experiencing low energy and fatigue.  It was time to get some help for myself! Finally, some answers for my arthritis, back pain, leg pain, high cholesterol, and weight gain.

Dr. Jurack has skillfully adjusted my back and reduced my neck and leg pain (no more headaches…Hurrah!) I did not expect anything but spinal adjustments at a chiropractor’s office, but here there was more… Much more…

Dr Jurack assess my condition as low thyroid and in turn recommended supplements that alleviated my fatigue and low energy. Also, her supplements helped my hair loss.

I participated in her allergy testing which determined there was a specific food (tomatoes) that might be contributing to inflammation and my joint pain. A food plan was developed to address the inflammation and low thyroid issues.

A special opportunity for my overall health was to have a “therapeutic massage” by Meranda. It was super! Besides alleviating my neck, back and leg pain…No more night sweats!…I have lowered my cholesterol…triglycerides by 50 points, LDL by 67 points, and overall cholesterol by 92 points. As a “side benefit”, I lost weight: 24 pounds: Dropped 2 jean sizes: Lost 25 inches overall (including 5″ from my hips and 4″ from my waist). I am looking forward to a new wardrobe now!

I thought I was fairly healthy. I thought living with joint pain was just a part of getting older…As I fast approach the age of 70, I would like to say “it is never too late to improve your health. If you are given the knowledge and follow the techniques offered by the caring people at the Muskego Health & Wellness Center!” Thanks for everything!
