From Our Patients:
I entered Holze Wellness Center with pain in my neck, shoulder, and down my arm. Dr. Holze did an exam and found that I had a sub-clinical infection in my muscle in that area. He put me on a homeopathic remedy and sent me home. I returned for one subsequent visit a week later and was 90% improved. It works!
This story is long overdue in sharing. First of all, my name is M. I am a registered nurse by profession and have been a patient of Dr. Lester Holze, Jr. since July of 1987. I will share my own stories of how this man has helped me at a later date. Today, I would like to share something about my daughter, C.
C. is now seven years old, soon to be turning eight this coming January. Dr. Holze has been my daughter’s primary care doctor, literally since the day she was born. And that is where my story begins.
Eight pounds, ten ounces, twenty-one inches long, beautiful in every way. Okay, I might be a little dramatic here, but how often does one get to write about one’s child. Or even something they are so passionate about? Anyway, after C was born, her mother and I were notified by the nursing staff that C needed a hearing test before going home with us. Being a nurse, that struck me as odd, especially since I had done my training with newborns at that very hospital, and they knew that this was not a common test.
Well, of course we wanted to know why, so we asked. Well it turned out that C. had been given two antibiotics “prophylactically”, meaning “just in case” for a strep infection her mother was tested for four months earlier and might I add treated and resolved by Dr. Holze at that time. Never, at any time did they re-test my wife for this infection prior to the delivery. Had I known what their course of action would have been, I think that we both would have demanded a re-test, knowing that it had been treated homeopathically and resolved three months prior to C’s birth. As the story goes, they gave her the antibiotics. The reason for the hearing test, oh yeah, these particular antibiotics can cause deafness! Okay, a little dramatic again, but darn was I angry! At no time did they tell us what they were doing or ask us for our consent. I think they should have informed us of the treatment and risks involved. Well, they didn’t.
Here is where Dr. Lester Holze comes in: Worried that my daughter could end up a statistic of these two medications, I called doctor Holze from the hospital, and told him of my fears that my daughter received medication and it could cause her to be deaf. If you’ve gotten to know Dr. Holze at all, you know that he is a gifted Kinesiologist and Homeopathic Physician, not to mention an extraordinary Doctor of Chiropractic. He has a gift that I know comes from years of experience as well as an on-going education. Some of his patients think it is more than that, I of course being one of them, but I will leave that up to history. Yeah there I go again, Dramatic!! Anyway, I called Doctor Holze and he told me by the phone that he felt that the medicine was detrimental to my daughter and that kinesiology-wise, both of C’s ears felt weak, but more so the right ear than the left. He recommended that I stop by the clinic and pick up a homeopathic remedy and start it immediately. I did, immediately! I trusted this man and that is when I really got scared. If this medicine could cause deafness and kinesiology-wise they were weak, I feared for the worst, but trusting in the best. I picked up the homeopathy and headed back to the hospital. There my wife and I secretly gave the homeopathic medicine to my daughter. Homeopathy is getting so much recognition today, but seven years ago nobody had any idea what it was and you certainly couldn’t find it at your local Jewel Osco like you can now. So fearing that the hospital wouldn’t understand and might even think we were a bit nuts, we did what we felt we needed to do and we gave it to her. Every chance we got, we secretly administered our baby the remedy.
The day came to take C home. First stop before leaving the hospital, Audiology for a hearing test. They hooked her up, tested her and then said we could go. The test results they wouldn’t have until the following week. Nothing from them to calm our fears, just they ” Would let us know.”
Next stop, Dr.Holze’s office. He may have come in special for us that day, I can’t remember for sure. After all, he has been known to do such things. Maybe I shouldn’t mention that. (I am laughing) Well, it’s just another measure of his dedication to his patients I think. Straight from the hospital we came, newborn in hand. Dr. Holze gave C her first official office Holze Wellness exam. Upon assessment he re-confirmed his earlier findings stating that both of C’s ears tested weak, the right ear being the worse of the two. He felt that the antibiotics were the problem, said they had settled in her ears and that the best course of action was to continue the homeopathy he had suggested over the phone. He felt that this would most likely strengthen the ears and rid her body of the antibiotics. We did what he suggested and waited.
The following week we got the call. It was what we feared. C’s hearing test the day she left the hospital showed that her hearing in her left ear was at 70% and her right was at 30%. My daughter seemed to be another statistic. Fortunately, though for us, and especially for our baby, we knew Dr. Holze. Dr. Holze treated C the day she came home from the hospital and a week later for this hearing problem. After a week had gone by, Dr. Holze felt that her ears were getting strong kinesiology-wise and when the hospital called to re-test C, we were all too eager to see if any damage had been done.
We took her in for the hearing exam and then waited another day or so when we received the news that C’s hearing was now 100% in both ears. No explanation why they thought there was improvement. A guess by the Audiologist that maybe C just had water in her ears and it had now gone away. Yeah, maybe.
All I know is this; my daughter was given two antibiotics that are known to cause deafness. I spoke to Dr .Holze the day I found this out. He told me at that time before any hearing tests were performed that both of my daughter’s ears tested weak and that her right ear was weaker than the left. The hearing test showed the same results that Dr. Holze had expressed over the phone to me. The fact that he knew which ear was weaker didn’t really amaze me, because as I said I had been a patient of his for some time prior. Maybe it amazes you or maybe you too have gotten to experience his abilities.
This letter is to be shared, because I think that it demonstrates Dr. Holze’s abilities as a kinesiologist and homeopathic physician. It is also a letter to express my heartfelt gratitude for what he has done for my daughter. I feel without a doubt, that had it not been for Dr. Holze, my daughter would be hard of hearing or possibly deaf today. Thank you Do!c

I entered Holze Wellness Center with pain in my neck, shoulder, and down my arm. Dr. Holze did an exam and found that I had a sub-clinical infection in my muscle in that area. He put me on a homeopathic remedy and sent me home. I returned for one subsequent visit a week later and was 90% improved. It works! -F. When I first started out with my symptoms I felt horrible, I was light headed from shortness of breath and wheezing. I could barely stand the feeling of not getting enough air to breathe with and rarely getting a good enough breathe to calm me down. When I started to go to the chiropractor he would lay me on the table and touch points that had something to do with the organs of the body and layout of my body. After he was done pressing a certain point he pushed my arm and I had to resist and if I could it was health and if I couldn’t it wasn’t. Then he would recommend vitamins and homeopathy for me to take and he told me what I should avoid till I came back. On a personal note it was exciting to get a cure for my horrible feeling and discomfort. The whole process was easy and affective and I never was sidetracked with a bunch of medications that wouldn’t even help. After every visit I seemed to get better and better. I encourage you to try the sessions because they work and they are easy to follow, all you need is the dedication to just do it. A. I have long suffered from chronic sinusitis and even had it turn to pneumonia on several occasions, when the infections in my sinuses drain into my lungs. I could see no end in sight until a friend told me about how a holistic doctor had “saved” her mother’s life. We talked about how inadequate our “real doctors” had become and I told her how at the last visit my GP had completely ignored everything I told him. She said she would get me the number of the holistic doctor her mother recommended. It was the beginning of my comeback. I was a shadow of a person, sick all the time. Now I know what to do if I get sick and I am rarely now. I am coping again. I have a second chance at health.
My name is J and I am 52 years old. When I came to Dr. Holze, I was very sick. I had Sciatica and fatigue. The pain in my back and legs was terrible, and often times, I couldn’t walk. I was bedridden for about six weeks. The medical doctors gave me muscle relaxants, pain killers, and Prednisone. They even suggested a pain clinic. I had an MRI. Nothing helped, and I was on my way to becoming drug-dependant. I was only getting worse.
Dr. Holze examined me and gave me Homeopathic medicines and nutritional supplements. I stayed with his treatment for one and a half years. I came every two weeks. I followed the regimen that he prescribed. I am so much better. I can exercise, work part-time, and live a normal healthy life. Presently, I see Dr. Holze about once a month. He continues to help me keep healthy. I highly recommend Holze Wellness Center. It is a great way to become healthy.
I have been a patient of Dr. Chris for a little over 2 years.
I have seen chiropractors for many years, most of my life in fact. But I was always a little frustrated that after each manual adjustment, I would come home with a bag full of varying supplements. My symptoms were maybe alleviated temporarily, but never resolved completely. And I found I was dealing with the same nagging symptoms over and over and over.
So I thought I was basically in good health when I started seeing Dr. Chris in January, 2008, but I had lots of “little issuerough initials” that I wanted to get answers for. I love the treatment that I have received from Dr. Chris. After the most tho examination I have ever had, we sat down for the treatment plan talk, and everything he told me he wanted to accomplish made perfect sense to me.
Dr. Chris’ unique way of treating with muscle testing, homeopathies, the cold laser, adjustor and percussor, etc. was new to me, and even though I didn’t always understand how it worked, I trusted Dr. Chris and I was committed to do my part. Within a short time all of my issues were resolved and I have enjoyed excellent health.
One of the best/most interesting aspects of my treatment was reading “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die” by Karol Truman. Coupled with Dr. Chris’ treatment plan, reading this book has been life changing for me. It began the incredible journey to my emotional core to take care of issues that had been buried and were just waiting to express themselves in physical sypmtoms.
After much emotional work scripting on my own that first year, I decided to try the Emotional Clearing recommended by newly trained Dr. Chris. I now have such a greater awareness of what’s happening in my physical body and the ability to trace it back to any emotional issues that are currently going on or are maybe deeper and have not yet been resolved. This piece of the puzzle has been a huge blessing and I feel has been a catalyst to enjoying even better physical health.
After 2 years of frequent visits, I am now able to enjoy simple monthly “maintenance” visits. This is a good thing since I drive almost 3 hours to get to Holze Wellness Center! But I can say it is truly worth the drive! Thank you Dr. Chris
“How are your feet?” asked my friend. I looked at her in surprise. I had not thought of my feet in months.
This is the friend that had referred me to Dr. Chris Holze at Holze Wellness Center and we had a discussion regarding our progress under his care.
Writing my personal history brought forth an awareness in myself about the number and severity of ailments I was experiencing on a daily basis.
I was taking aspirin or ibuprofen everyday for what I called my “aches and pains”. Most days I would remember to wiggle my feet before I got out of bed in the morning, but if I didn’t I hobbled for the first minutes of my day. My lower back usually ached and I always had a stiff neck. Under Dr. Chris’s care my neck, back, and feet are in great shape. As I stated above, it is a surprise to even recall those daily “aches and pains”.
My other physical weakness was my respiratory system. For years I took antibiotics at least twice a year for sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. I had pneumonia three times!! I knew that regular doses of antibiotics were debilitating, but I did not know hot to stop the cycle. I am happy to report that in over a year I have not even thought of visiting the ear, nose, and throat doctor whose office phone number I had memorized from calling so often. I attribute this to my wellness program.
Our son was diagnosed with at risk for ADHD at age 4. He was aggresssive, defiant, unaffectionate, and seemed to be unconnected to anyone. His growth was delayed, his learning disabilities were very profound, he was sleeping approximately five hours a night, and was not dry at night at the age or six. We tried elimination diets for over a year to identify what foods were exasperating his condition. When we became patients of Dr. Chris we were feeding our son twelve foods that had to be rotated every four days to prevent his body from rejecting them.
Within six months of receiving treatment with Dr. Chris, our son’s aggresion was remarkably decreased. With behavior modification his behavior is appropriate for a child his age. He is no longer on a restricted diet; he has grown over two inches a year for the last two years, sleeps 10 hours a night and is dry. We know this improvement in his health is directly linked to the treatment Dr. Chris has provided. Our son is not identified as a child with any behavior or learning disabilities by any professional unless under strict testing situations. He is now eight years old; looks healthy, has many friends and another champion in is life; Dr. Chris.
I have also been a patient of Dr. Chris and have had an improvement in my health over the last two years. He has helped me with the flu, PMS, eye infections, dental work recovery, sleep problems, an episode of depression as well as the challenges of being a parent of two young boys. Our visits to the emergency room have decreased as we have become more familiar with the treatments Dr. Chris provides to our family.
My husband was very skeptical of the treatments we were receiving. He is now a patient of Dr. Chris and has received relief from his hay fever and other occasional illnesses.
Dr. Lester Holze has proven to me, over more than 20 years, that he is qualified in his field and a very conscientious person in his awareness of the needs of others. There are many painless ways he has met my health needs. Health issues ranging from memory loss to temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ).
When I came to Dr. Holze, I was very sick. I had Sciatica and fatigue. The pain in my back and legs was terrible, and often times, I couldn’t walk. I was bedridden for abotu 6 weeks. The medical doctors gave me muscle relaxants, pain killers, and Prednisone. They even suggested a pain clinic. I had an MRI. Nothing helped, and I was on my way to becoming drug-dependent. I was only getting worse. Dr. Holze examined me and gave me Homeopathic remedies and Nutritional supplements. I stayed with his treatment and followed the regimen that he prescribed. I am so much better. I can exercise, work parttime, and live a normal healthy life. Presently, I see Dr. Holze about once a month. He continues to help me keep healthy. I highly recommend Holze Wellness Center. Its a great way to become healthy.
I have long suffered from chronic sinusitis and even had it turn to pneumonia on several occasions, when the infections in my sinuses drains into my lungs. I could see no end in sight until a friend told me about how a holistic doctor had “saved” her mothers life. It was the beginning of my comeback. I was a shadow of a person, sick all the time. Now I know what to do if I get sick and I am rarelly now. I am coping again. I have a second chance at health.
Before I came to Dr. Lester Holze I had several health problems. I got sick all the time. For several months I could not get out of my chair for more than a few minutes. I would get scik with “whatever was going around” and just as I got a little better I would get something else. I was never fully well. I would get the sweats and the chills just minutes from each other. I was either in my sleeping bag trying to warm up or so hot that when my wife put cold wet towels on me I would just make the towels hot.
I had trouble with great swings in blood sugar. Sometimes my blood sugar would get so low I would sweat and get dizzy and lose my ablitity to do anything. Dr. Pauline Harding referred me to Dr. Holze. She had much experience with his work. Dr. Holze proceeded to help me get rid of an indection in my lymph nodes. He then started systematically to remove all the impediments to good health: infections, heavy metals, old viruses and toxins that lingered years after they first arrived. By ridding my system of the things that had weakened it, I gradually began to function better and more healthy.
I was headed in the wrong direction fast when I was sent to see Dr. Holze. He may have literally saved my life. Now I am healthier, stronger, happier, and looking forward to getting more so as time goes by.
I entered Holze Wellness Center with pain in my neck, shoulder, and down my arm. Dr. Holze did an exam and found that I had a sub-clinical infection in my muscle in that area. He put me on a homeopathic remedy and sent me home. I returned for one subsequent visit a week later and was 90% improved.
I cannot remember how miserable I felt when I first climbed the stairs to the Holze Wellness Center. I knew if I got pneumonia one more time I would be “culled from the herd”. I was very frightened and not at all hopeful that I had found any answers.
I had a sickly childhood an both of my parents died before they reached that age of sixty. I had therefore practiced healthy habits such as eating fruits and vegetables, staying away from fast food, exercising, and taking joy in living. I scheduled regular chiropractic care and medical check-ups. That kind of agenda did not prevent illness or weight gain. Further, I had hit some kind of wall when I caught pneumonia three years before entering treatment with Dr. Lester Holze. Two courses of antibiotics, steroids, and inhalers, had to be used to conquer the infection. I did not regain my full strength or vitality. Each cold thereafter seemed to become some kind of health crises from which I never fully recovered.
Friends recommended Dr. Holze. Yet I believe that my chiropractor at the time and a supplement program my children brought to my attention would do the trick. A year later, my health had spiraled downward.
When the day came for my first appointment, I had to climb each stair clinging to the hand rail. I suffered from intense muscle aches, shortness of breath, general weakness, and malaise. If the office had been on the third floor, I doubt I could have made it. After the initial exam, I requested a bottle of DSF Formula immediately because when I chewed the half tablet, I felt a surge of energy. That event alone gave me boundless hope knowing that I wouldn’t be ingesting supplements blindly.
Early on, I knew that my improvement was in such subtle increments that I needed to keep a journal of health victories. Here are a few complaints that have been improved or eradicated over the last twenty-one months: muscle aches, stiffness, lower back pain, walking problems, general weakness, headaches, pain under right ribs (I had my gallbladder removed because of this pain but it did not go away), dysfunctional immune system, depression, low energy malaise, rapid heart beat, and weight loss.
I still have trouble believing Dr. Holze’s offhand miracles. Recognizing that we have a partnership, I am very glad to have this opportunity to thank him for the good health I now savor.
