Dr. Rekar in a ConsultationENERGY SUCCESS

All That Energy! Eight months ago my body fell apart. This was the result of working fourteen-plus hours a day, seven days a week over a three year period. I saw seven chiropractors, four MD's, and various homeopaths . . . I spent thousands and thousands. I tried lots of therapies. I did not improve. I was sleeping fourteen or more hours a day and still had no energy. I live in Chicago, but I even ventured internationally to get my condition fixed. Eventually a friend told me about you.

I arrived Wednesday night and within thirty minutes he said he knew what to do. I did it. Within forty-eight hours I've gone from wondering if I had to quit my job next month to wondering where all that energy came from. I'm cured!! I'm fixed!! This guy is great!! Tell your friends to come here NOW!

With great respect and gratitude

Thursday morning as I was reaching for an item my back went into spasms. I was in such excruciating pain that I had to crawl to where my nine month old son was playing. My husband had to rush home to pick me and our son off the floor. The pain was so unbearable that I could not even walk to your office without assistance. To get me on and off the examining table they had use the hydraulic examining table. When the Dr. went to examine my back the screams could be heard through out the office. It was extremely frightening for me.

Today is Monday, four days, just 96 hours later, and I am not only able to walk on my own but I am also able to pick up my son!!!

I will never be able to say thank you enough.

Last night I came down with a really bad case of bronchitis, so bad that I couldn't breathe at all. My choice at the time was to go to the emergency hospital and get loaded up with antibiotics or to somehow get in touch with your doctor, which fortunately, I was able to do although it was close to midnight.

He worked on me for quite awhile and I could feel all this fluid breaking up in my chest immediately. I went from feeling I was going to suffocate to being able to get air down my nose again, instead of my mouth. In fact, I would say that after the adjustment I was in 75% better shape. I was absolutely amazed, as in the past it would take weeks before I'd feel okay again, and be able to breathe.

Keep up the great work.

October 1995 I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. My Gastroenterologist put me on large doses of steroids which did nothing to control my condition. Three months later they removed two-thirds of my large intestine. Shortly after healing from my surgery the inflammation returned. The doctor treated me with large doses of Pentasa, which did not help. My condition became so severe that my doctor wanted to go another round of steroids with chemotherapy and then probably to another surgery to remove the rest of my colon. At this point an acquaintance referred me to your clinic. I was suffering from severe headaches, stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, and migratory arthritis. After only two weeks treatment by your doctor the diarrhea completely stopped and I have no intestinal pain. My migraine headaches are gone. My migrating arthritis has vanished. Even my severe foot pain has completely disappeared. All this, plus I'm off of all medication. I've got to tell my gastroenterologist "no" to his cortisone, chemotherapy and surgery.

Plus I lost twelve pounds.

Not too shabby!

I had spent two years suffering from chronic knee pain and had seen six different specialists but not one could agree on my injury, only on medication to numb my pain. Both my knees hurt and I had given up all sports because of the pain.

A friend recommended your practice highly and at one of his seminars, I decided to give it a try. You diagnosed my military neck, stressed adrenal glands and very low energy.

After four months of regular visits, I am getting back into my favorite sports, biking and hiking, without any pain. Now with just some regular monthly treatments, I'll be back to 100%!

Thanks to you for my recovery -- without drugs -- and to the friendly staff for making me hang in there.

At seven years old, my daughter was run over by a speeding car while crossing the street with classmates at her school. The physical damage was substantial to her neck, back, spine and left leg. The trauma to her head was so great, that the emergency physicians were concerned.

Surgeries, medical and orthopedic treatment, vitamin and nutritional therapies, extensive physical therapy and stretching exercises, all helped her a great deal in regaining use of her body. She missed more than a year of school, and when she reentered, missed one day a week due to pain. Her chiropractic care was constant from a few weeks after the accident. She walked, but with a noticeable limp. The damaged ligaments in her neck area and lower leg caused frequent pain. Her left leg would "go out from under her" unexpectedly, and she suffered re-injuries. Her neck was often aching.

She was medically restricted from some "normal kid" activities: no rollerblading; no roller-coasters or rides at theme parks; no track team; no contact sports; and for a long while no bicycle riding. These restrictions were lifted as doctors observed her progress; at times the lifting of these restrictions was premature and she was re-injured. She eventually quit dancing which she loved very much; the neck pain was just too great and she kept falling further behind the other girls which was disheartening to her, especially after working harder than all the other young dancers.

During the summer of 1997, four years after the accident, my daughter began treatment with you. She was then 11 years old. She really loved her chiropractor and trusted him. Within six intensive weeks of treatment she improved substantially. The frequency and intensity of debilitating migraine headaches diminished. Today, they are controllable. And when she returned to her home here in the East, she joined the cheerleading squad at her school, and a full activity schedule at school.

Although she has not been treated at your office for more than a year, your young patient has been on the track team at her school, and expects to be named the Captain of the Cheerleading Squad next month. She'll be 13 years old by then, and will graduate with honors from Middle School next June. She no longer misses any school days due to her earlier injuries.

I am truly grateful for what you have done. It's amazing that you could "fix the damaged areas." As a parent, it is a moving experience to witness such an improvement in the condition of one's child. Thank You. And thank you to each professional and support team member, who worked so caringly with my daughter in your office. In our family, you will always be remembered for your kindness and effectiveness, in curing what other professionals were unable to cure.

Warmest Regards and Thanks,

I was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 12 years old. Since that time I've seen several doctors and specialists, from San Diego to Newport Beach. The symptoms of endometriosis vary from person to person. For me, it was pain! Cramping all month long, so bad that it would take me away from school and work. I had three surgeries over a period of four years. They would only take away the pain for six months to a year. At the age of 20 years old, even though I wanted to be a mother more than anything, I was considering getting a hysterectomy.

Then a friend told me about your practice. I've been under treatment for over two months now, and needless to say - I FEEL GREAT!! My pain has left, and I wake up in the morning feeling wonderful. Life is so different when you're pain free! Your doctors are Magic and I would highly recommend them.

Thank you for giving me my life back!

It didn't seem unusual when I first started to see you that I wasn't able to play tennis, or racquetball, or do gymnastics anymore. Hey, I'm over 40, right? The body slows down, aches and pains, headaches, you know?

Not so! After being put on the "program" here, I'm now doing all those athletic things again, I have renewed energy at work, no headaches, no stress effects, and my overall creativity as a musician and artist is back up to a stellar range again. One flow leads to another!

Thank you for giving me my youth and my life back!

In 1990 I couldn't walk for six months. I couldn't stand or lie down. I slept for forty-five minutes at a time in a weird position in a big overstuffed chair. I did two and a half hours of therapy religiously for six years. I went to and through a myriad of Chiropractors. All I ever hoped for was momentary relief. I went three times a week. I never thought I would ever see improvement! When I came here, I couldn't walk. I went from relief to recovery to a plateau of stability! Amazing results!

Thank you so much for introducing me to "40-30-30." I started the diet program about three weeks ago and I already lost 12 pounds! I also feel much better. I have a higher energy level and I no longer crave sweets or want to eat all the time. I really think this is a fabulous program that I can easily keep up with. I have also been able to create wonderful meals with the help of the food table. This program has also worked on my boyfriend who lost about 4 inches off his waist in a three week period. I highly recommend this program for everyone. It's fabulous and easy to follow. Thank you!

I am so grateful I was referred to your practice. After four years of living with frequent mid-back pain, I'd begun to believe it couldn't be fixed and had resigned myself to learning to live with it.

I have been a patient of yours for just over three months and am elated to say the pain is completely gone! Prior to coming to this practice I had seen four other chiropractors; none of which corrected the problem. I also had low energy and frequently my heart would race so fast I'd nearly pass out. No physician was able to pinpoint the cause until now.

In the short time I've been under your care and learning and following the nutritional information these conditions are completely cured. I have found his weekly lectures to be very helpful. The education he provides is so informative that it has inspired me to take the best care of myself.

I think the world of you and your wonderful staff. I am so very grateful to all of you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
