Naturally Rockford: Dr. Julia’s Inn: Helping people through natural therapy

I have been blessed to be able to help so many people with their illnesses. From acute to chronic, the letters and testimonies have come in so people could share their stories and experiences. Here are just a few testimonies that came into our office throughout last year that I would like to share with you.


What medical doctors would suggest: Advair

Side effects: Epilepsy seizure, diabetes, osteoporosis, heart problems. This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby.

What a Naturopathic doctor would suggest: Oxygen, lung supplements, colonic

Side effects: None

Dear Dr. Julia,

I wanted to share with you and your patients on how the hyperbaric chamber and colonics have helped me with my asthma. I started coming to you in October of 2005, for I saw your Web site. Winter was always a struggle with me, and I would have at least four breathing treatments a week. Since I have been seeing you now for four months and receiving oxygen, I have made a dramatic turn for the better. I have not had to have a breathing treatment, but the big thing is I did not catch a cold. I always get at least 2-3 colds during winter. To make a long story short, the oxygen treatment and the two colon hydrotherapy treatments really helped me out. I would advise anyone with asthma to try it. Thank you.

High cholesterol

What medical doctors would suggest: Lipitor

Side effects: Not for people with liver problems. May cause muscle pain, gas, bloat, constipation, heart problems. Warning: Women who are nursing, pregnant, or think they will become pregnant should not take this.

What a Naturopathic doctor would suggest: Cleaning the hepic reflex valve, changing your diet, cleaning your liver with supplements and enzymes.

Side effects: None

Dear Dr. Julia,

When I went to my doctor for my annual physical, he told me he was going to put me on a cholesterol-lowering pill because my cholesterol was 261. After reading the side effects, I decided to see you, and you educated me on my diet, what foods cause high cholesterol, what foods are healthy, and what my diet was missing supplement wise. I followed your diet and instructions to the T, and in three months went back to my doctor for another blood test, and my cholesterol was now 197. I have lost 15 pounds, I have more energy than I have had for years, and I have not felt this good in a long time. Thank you.

What medical doctors would suggest: Lexapro

Side effects: Headache, nervousness, anxiety, nausea, diarrhea, weight gain, sleepiness, decreased sex drive, impotence

What a Naturopathic doctor would suggest: Diet, supplements, colonics

Side effects: None

Dear Dr. Julia,

Thank you for giving me my life back. I was going downhill fast. After my children, I became depressed. The doctors told me it was the baby blues syndrome, and I believed it. So, of course, I am put on many different medications for it. After four years, 48 pounds heavier, I finally said enough is enough. I came to you, and you explained to me that because of the back-to-back pregnancies, my body was so depleted in so many things. You helped me with my diet, you cleaned my colon, you put me on different supplements, and now I have energy. I have lost 30 pounds, and I am off my medication for depression. I truly believe in my heart I never had the baby blues. I believe that the doctor just wanted to dismiss me and give me meds.

Yeast infections

What medical doctors would suggest: Gynazole

Side effects: Vaginal irritation, itching, burning, pain and discomfort when passing urine

What a Naturopathic doctor would suggest: Probiotics, colonics and diet

Dear Dr. Julia,

I want to share this testimony with you and your female patients. I have been plagued with yeast infections throughout my whole life. It is especially worse during my monthly cycle. Every time I would go to my doctor, she would just put me on another antibiotic. I started educating myself and realized that the antibiotic was making sure the yeast always came back. I heard about you through a friend, and everything made sense to me. How yeast grows in my large intestine because of not having enough healthy bacteria in the colon, and then how it is passed to the vaginal area via tissues. My first session was a success. I could not believe how much better I felt, but how you educated me so much on diet, supplements and colon health. My own doctor of 16 years has never educated and talked to me like that. I have told so many of my friends about you. Please keep up the good work.

—Roberta W.

These are just a few of the wonderful testimonies. I have a huge book in my office of wonderful letters that people have shared with me. I take great pride in educating people so they can take care of their own health naturally.
