Thanks to Dr. Ettinger’s care and treatment through holistic medicine and chiropractic adjustments, I have noticed a remarkable improvement in my health. The most important improvement has been getting off the drug Prozac. This drug, while claiming to help my depression, was actually creating more of a problem for me in the long run by doing the opposite of why it had been prescribed a year ago. With Dr. Ettinger’s knowledge of drugs and their effect on the body and on the mind and his knowledge of natural remedies, which promote healing of one’s self, I was able to transition off the Prozac and to be sustained in greater health without side effects. The office staff has been instrumental in giving me the gift of “new health” and a feeling of new life! To Dr. Ettinger and to all his staff, I extend my warmest thanks for their care and time in furthering my understanding towards a healthier life. I have wholeheartedly recommended Dr. Ettinger’s care and expertise to members of my family.
I REALLY BELIEVE THAT IF WE DO TAKE THE TIME TO KNOCK, SEEK, AND ASK FOR A NEW LIFE AND BETTER HEALTH, the answers are out there. Dr. Ettinger has been so very helpful to me, and I am most grateful.

Safe and Natural Prozac Protocol
Professional Note: The protocol that Sharon took that assisted her in getting off Prozac, was unique to her based on muscle response testing. It was a combination of Organic Iodine, Gabatone by Apex Energetics, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), L-tryptophan (serotonin precursor) and SAMe (melatonin precursor). Sharon also followed a low-glycemic diet with very, very little wheat and dairy products. Exercise was recommended at 45 minutes 3-4 times a week.
