"My colonoscopy results from my gastroenterologist show my Ulcerative Colitis is in strong remission!
To me, I attribute this result to all of the help, dietary suggestions, and supplements provided by Dr. Schultz. This has been a long journey and the traditional prognosis for me was to expect a steady downward trend. Dr. Schultz effectively employed his extensive knowledge to counter this condition on a cellular level to allow my body to heal itself.
This condition took a long time to get as bad as it did, and it took a while to right the ship. It took a great captain to know how to change the ship's course."
"Sometimes God Sightings come in the form of people. I will never forget the first time I met Dr. Fred Schultz. I knew he was an angel sent from God.
"I was prescribed birth control pills in high school to regulate my hormones. After college I was told I had polycystic ovaries and was prescribed spironolactone. By the time I was 30 years old, my cholesterol was high. My doctor told me I had to go on prescription medication for my cholesterol. I was thin at the time. I ate healthy. I knew something else was wrong. I was 30 years old and being prescribed a THIRD medication. How was I going to live to see 80? I already WAS 80!
"I started researching. I was scared and didn’t want to go against the doctor’s recommendations. But I couldn’t deny this voice deep inside that would not let me take the third medication. I started to look up natural remedies and visited health food stores. One store referred me to Dr. Fred Schultz in Wheaton at The Center For Health and Healing. The stars were in alignment. My life changed.
"Dr. Fred Schultz is a medical doctor who integrates natural and traditional approaches to medicine. He looks for the underlying cause of your symptoms. Dr Schultz listened, and then he helped. It took time, but my body recovered. Dr Schultz honored my inner voice. He awakened my strength. He offered me hope. Whenever you meet someone who awakens your sense of self, you have surely had a God Sighting. Angels Among Us Blog
“When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.” - MARY BAKER EDDY, Poems by Mary Baker Eddy
"Two years ago, I developed a sudden onset of inflammation in my joints which got progressively worse. I was unable to put my shoes on, I could not pick up anything with my hands. My knees were so swollen that I could not walk up and down stairs. I was sent to a variety of doctors, including specialists and I was continually getting worse. I was told I had psoriatic arthritis and that I would have to take drug injections for the rest of my life. As I told the doctor who said this to me, 'Doctor, I am old (58 then), but I am not that old.'
"The real problem, however, is that I was not getting well with the recommendations given. I was exhausted all the time and was getting scared I would never be well and active again. I searched all during this time for someone to help me. I found Dr. Schultz in May 2011. When I called, I was given a first appointment in October and I was told I would be put on a cancellation list for an earlier appointment. I had my first appointment within 10 days of my original call.
"I brought as many medicals record to him on my first visit as I could. Dr. Schultz took my history. He spoke with me in great detail about what I had been experiencing and he listened carefully. He suggested two anti-inflammatory natural supplements for me to begin taking and ordered a significant amount of blood work. Within 2 days of beginning the first 2 supplements, the inflammation began to subside and I was able to reduce the immune suppressing drugs I had been taking by 1/3. After the results from the blood work were returned, Dr. Schultz thoroughly reviewed them, explained the results and there interrelationships to me in detail. He suggested a number of other supplements to take.
"It is now September and the inflammation is nearly 100% gone. I am mobile again, I can ride my bike and walk as far as I would like. I am a sailor and before I found Dr. Schultz, I told my husband, I did not think we would be able to sail anymore, since I could not climb on and off the boat. We have been sailing all summer now.
"It is important to understand that the blood work and the time Dr. Schultz invests in understanding the results in connection with each other is crucial and different than other doctors who order a few single tests. I will give one important example. I had been given a thyroid test before and was told it was normal. Dr.Shultz showed me my results and explained that my thyroid was underactive and also explained why. Within one month of beginning the natural thyroid supplements Dr. Schultz prescribed, 10 pounds literally fell off me and I have my normal good energy levels back.
"The staff at Dr. Schultz' office are caring and knowledgeable. Whenever I have had a question, they always respond immediately or call me back within a very short period of time, always in the same day. I am grateful I found Dr. Schultz and feel that I am well on the way to becoming completely healthy again. Thanks to Dr. Schultz and all the Staff." --- K.D.
"Before I became a patient of Dr. Fred I never believed that I could ever feel this healthy again. No one else had the attention and commitment to diagnose an illness that had essentially crippled my life for over a year. Dr. Fred has the best bedside manner and warmest demeanor of any doctor I have seen, and I had been to many. The attention and empathy I have received surpasses any I have received in the past. I am never afraid to ask questions, and all of my concerns are addressed and worked with. I never get the brush-off and my opinions and questions are respected. I finally feel confident that I will continue to get better and better with Dr. Fred leading me towards optimal health! He is the only doctor I've recommended to friends." --A.S.
"I am a patient of Dr. Fred Schultz who is a licensed MD and who also has a background in Chemistry. Until I found Dr. Schultz I suffered from a variety of ailments. I had been a patient of several doctors who used standardized medicine to attempt to handle the problems I was having: asthma, menopause, high cholesterol, and thyroid problems to name a few.
After much research on my part, I was very uncomfortable taking the standard pharmaceuticals for the problems listed above. With the help of Dr. Schultz and his use of very specific vitamin, mineral, and enzyme combinations I have been able to control or eliminate these problems.
Instead of Lipitor to control high cholesterol, I use natural supplements. Instead of Premarin, I use a compounded hormone replacement which is created especially for me...It works! I'm living proof!" -- S. S.
"I am a 48 year old female who has been suffering from the chronic pain, fatigue and mental fogginess associated with fibromyalgia for almost 30 years. In the past 4 years the pain and fatigue have become debilitating. Most of my day was spent on the couch because I lacked the energy to perform even simple household tasks. I could work no longer than approximately 15 minutes without needing to lie down again. It was necessary to use over the counter pain medication almost daily. The physicians that I sought help from offered either no help at all or prescribed synthetic medication. On two separate occasions I tried the prescribed medication. I experienced negative effects yet received no benefit from the prescribed government approved medication.
In June of 2009 I sought the medical advice of Dr. Schultz, a skilled and competent physician who bases his medical diagnosis on regular laboratory testing. He prescribed several natural supplements for my deteriorating health. The use of natural supplements has literally given me my life back. My pain level has decreased significantly. I have greatly improved mental clarity and energy. I am able to function as a whole and healthy adult for the first time in many years.
Natural supplements have radically changed my life. I am enjoying life again. I am a better wife to my husband, mother to my children, and I look forward to being a grandmother soon." -- J.L.
"There is no doubt in my mind that the supplements that I have taken have dramatically improved my life. Perhaps some people can't feel the difference that vitamins and other supplements have on their body but I can. My good health is not only marked by increased energy but also by limited health issues. My belief system is that we should live a lifestyle of prevention and do all that we can to remain healthy. Eat right and supplement our diet with nutrients we need to obtain optimum health. We may otherwise lack these nutrients because of age or our food supply.
With the help of an excellent physician, who is a doctor of family medicine and a bio-chemist I am able to give my body what it needs through supplements vs. modern day drugs." --N.O.
"I'm 48 and suffer from ITP (a chronic condition which reduces the number of platelets in my blood, making me prone to hemorrhaging if I have a severe injury) and impacting my thyroid to the point where my energy level was far below a normal person. Specialists, since my teens, have tried to determine the cause to no avail. I've been on medications but the side effects impacted my life worse than the chronic illness. The medications did not significantly improve my condition.
After 2 years on the medications, I weaned off the medication under the direction of a Dr. I then turned to natural means, changed my eating habits and found a licensed doctor such as Dr. Schultz. Being on natural supplements, vitamins, herbs, I have been able to increase my platelet count, my energy level is normal, and I feel better and healthier than I've ever felt in my life. Except for my platelet count, I'm in excellent condition - no cholesterol problems, no diabetes, no blood pressure problems, no heart problems, no osteoporosis, etc. (As a matter of fact, I was diagnosed with pre-osteoporosis due to the medication I was on after only 2 years on it!) Through natural supplements, within one year this condition was reversed and I do not need to worry about brittle bones at my age. This is only one side effect from the prescription drugs. I have found medications create additional problems and deteriorate my quality of life.
Through the use of supplements and vitamins, I was able to reverse a natural side effect condition related to ITP - blood clots. Prior to using supplements and vitamins, a doctor wanted me to take another medication to eliminate the blood clots. I'm no longer considered a high risk stroke candidate.
I'm stable, I am not incurring ongoing medical expenses, and I've been able to keep this status for over 12 years." --D.L.
"For the past 20-plus years, I have been dealing with serious issues of fatigue. After many complaints to various medical doctors in several different states, I was always given the same types of tests that yielded the same response: “All your tests are normal. Try to get more sleep.” Needless to say, with that kind of advice, I never got better, only worse.
About a year ago, I found Dr. Schultz, who took a natural approach to healing. After correctly diagnosing me based on valid blood tests, he put me on a regimen that included healthy whole foods, a natural thyroid product, and vitamin and herbal supplementation.
Within weeks, I was feeling tremendously better. And even now, months later, I feel better than I have felt for the last 20 years! ...Not only have I greatly benefited from nutritional supplementation, but my family has as well. God has designed our bodies to heal naturally, not with drugs or medications. We have remained exceptionally healthy this winter without the aid of flu vaccines. Supplementation has built up our immune systems and we are able to fight off many of the maladies that plague others who do not use supplementation." --K.B.
