Dr. William Schafernak, D.C. – Chiropractor

In 1992 I was referred to Dr. Schafernak and he was my first experience with an alternative doctor.  One day I woke up and I could not move, x-rays revealed that my back was in the shape of an S.  He straightened me out and has kept me in good working order ever since, nineteen years.  He uses muscle testing to give you the exact treatment your individual body needs.  I am eternally grateful for his presence in my life.

Ms. Barbara Arbuthnot , R.M.

A few years ago I named my friend Barb my “Healing Angel” partially because she introduced me to three of the people on this list.  Her loving advice as a friend was and is the best and I am eternally grateful!

As a child Barb read her mothers medical books from nursing school.  Her vast knowledge and experience in holistic alternative health care makes her a perfect health coach.  She owned and ran a health food store in Chicago for several years.  The proof is in the pudding as the saying goes and she and her son have enjoyed great health though out their lives.

She has many talents and services that she offers people; Reiki, Reflexology, Essential Oil Raindrop and Pressure Point-massage just to mention a few.  She works by appointment only and can be reached at 847-692-6796; located in Park Ridge, IL.

Ms. Wanda Copple, C.T., C.N.C.

Wanda is a Certified Colon Therapist with over 25 years of clinical experience.  She trained under Dr. Robert Wood know as the father of colonics from England.  She administers Ozone-Oxygen-Colonics the old fashion way; using gravity as taught by Dr. Wood.  I went to Wanda half way through my 30 day Herbal Cleanse and continued to receive a series of colonics for a complete clean out.  Not only are her colonics great for cleansing but I also learned a lot about what foods to avoid for good colon health, which has helped me tremendously.  She is a wealth of information and I feel so blessed to have her as my Colon Therapist.  My intestinal health definitely improved after my series with Wanda.  She works by appointment only and can reached at 847-966-2480; located in Morton Grove, IL.

Dr. Raymond M. Webster, D.N.

- Licensed Naprapath

- Licensed Acupuncturist

- Licensed Clinical Nutritionist & Dietitian

Dr. Webster has saved many people from unnecessary and or debilitating surgeries.  My friend Barb has regenerated her knees, avoiding joint replacements, several times with the help of Dr. Webster and Dr. Andrea.

I was born with hip dysplasia in my left hip and inflammation and degeneration set in.  I was planning hip replacement surgery in the spring of 2009 with only 20% mobility in my left hip.  After a 100% raw food diet for a year the inflammation and deterioration ceased.  Now I was ready to rebuild and strengthen my body, especially my hip.  I knew on the first visit that Dr. Webster was the right person to help me regenerate my hip joints.  My range of motion increased to 40% after just a few treatments with Dr. Webster.  I now visit him once a month and he keeps me walking well.

He works by appointment only and can reached at 773-792-1288; located at 5510 N. Menard, Chicago, IL 60630
