Skin Tags and Functional Medicine

I was introduced to Dr. Ettinger in 2010 by my girlfriend, and I have been a committed patient ever since. I originally started seeing Dr. Ettinger for SKIN TAGS. I struggled with SKIN TAGS for almost a year before seeing him. I kept getting them removed and they would just grow right back. Dr. Ettinger put me on an anti-virus supplement and they immediately stopped coming back. I have not had one since they left me three years ago. Dr. Ettinger is a one of a kind doctor. He treats all of his patients like family and does not recommend anything that you don’t test for. I have been seeing him for chiropractic and functional medicine care for the past three years. I am truly in the best shape of my life and I have more energy than ever before! I have altered my diet tremendously since seeing him; I’ve lost fat and gained strength since I started following his nutritional advice and my skin has never been clearer.

I would recommend Dr. E to anyone that’s experiencing physical pain or in need of a better and healthier lifestyle. He knows more about nutrition and the way the human body functions than any doctor I have ever met. He is also one of the most positive and honest individuals I know; you will always leave his office feeling positive and full of energy. He truly is a medical detective!

Thanks for everything Dr. E!

Truly cares about the wellbeing of his patients and go far and beyond anyone to make sure you’re getting well and staying well, a true healer and a friend. His knowledge of the human body and thirst in learning new information is amazing. I’m glad to call him my healthcare provider and friend.

Migraine Headaches

I have been a patient of Dr. Ettinger for over a year now and so happy that I found him. I was suffering from CHRONIC MIGRAINES and searching for help. The neurologist I was seeing wanted to put me on daily preventative medicine, perform harsh surgeries. I tried every medicine and treatment such as acupuncture.

When I found Dr. Ettinger he knew what my problem was right off the bat and was able to treat me instantly. For the first time ever I was able to receive instant relief of my migraines and with his treatment and prevention. I can honestly say that with Dr. Ettinger’s treatment I have been cured of my long time chronic disorder!

H. pylori

“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”

-Marcus Aurelius

I have been dealing with a myriad of health issues over the past several years. I’ve been to many doctors, specialists, and been rushed to the emergency room several times. To say that I was frustrated with our health care system and not getting answers from my doctors would be an understatement.

Since one of my many health issues was digestive in nature, I wanted to find a functional doctor who had experience in treating digestive issues.

After doing my due diligence, I found Dr. Marcus Ettinger and took him up on his free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we were a good fit because he had extensive experience in dealing with digestive issues.

He asked me some questions and I asked him a few questions. I liked his answers and how he answered so I made an appointment with him on the spot and was eager to see him because I was in a lot of pain and discomfort.

I was suffering and couldn’t work.

Dr. Ettinger will not see you unless you’ve had extensive blood lab work is done which was a good sign to me. My previous labs weren’t comprehensive enough so I went off to get my blood drawn. Once the results came in I made an appointment to see him and he went over my labs.

Dr. Ettinger has a way of explaining your labs and what they mean much better than any doctor I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen my fair share). He explained what he thought was going on with my body and explained the plan of attack for getting me back to my old self.

He also shared some quotes from Marcus Aurelius when we were discussing my stress levels. I thought that was pretty cool.

He showed me the supplements and vitamin that I would be taking and explained why I would be taking them. I will admit, the first 30 days were extremely challenging as I was in pain and having trouble taking my supplements. So instead of taking them all at once, I began to stagger them.

After a few weeks, I started feeling better.

The first consultation lasted an hour and never once did I feel rushed or that Dr. Ettinger was thinking about the next patient. He was definitely present.

He took his time explaining things to me but the one thing that really stood out was that he looked me in the eye and listened attentively to what I was saying and jotted down notes.

I think Dr. Ettinger is a remarkable doctor and have recommended him to my family and friends. If you’re serious about your overall health, you definitely should pay him a visit. He will see things that many allopathic doctors will have missed. I should know as I’m living proof of this. He caught several things that other doctors missed such as my vitamin d deficiency and my leaky gut, to name a couple.

I still have a long way to go in my healing journey because my health issues are quite complex and I’m confident with Dr. Ettinger as one of the health professionals in my corner, that I will eventually get there.

NOTE: If you have an H. Pylori infection or candida, see Dr. Ettinger first because antibiotics are not always the answer and they can destroy your gut flora. Try the more natural route first.

Even if you think you are perfectly healthy but haven’t had complete blood work done (not just 10 or 12 markers but much more), I would highly encourage you to get it done.

Dr. Ettinger does not accept insurance but he is worth every cent. He makes zero from the labs because you only get charged for their cost.

He is truly a world class health professional and I’ve come to see him as both my doctor and confidant.

Chiropractic Adjustments

I have been to many chiropractors throughout the years, (from Fullerton to Newport Beach) and Marcus Ettinger is by far my favorite. I have scheduled visits with him for nutrition coaching and chiropractic care–he really knows his stuff! He is very knowledgeable in all areas of his work and patiently answers any questions too.

Most recently, I fell and bruised my tailbone and Dr. Ettinger quickly fit me into his schedule for an adjustment. I could barely walk into his office, but he was absolutely mindful of the bruised area and still managed a great adjustment. Dr. Ettinger has definitely earned my trust!

Chiropractic and Holistic Care

I have been seeing Dr. Ettinger for a while ( I actually can’t recall how many years but maybe since 2012) He is awesome at adjusting me and my NECK and BACK but has also helped me with other issues that I would have normally called my WESTERN Medicine doctor. I feel you need both sometimes but I have gone to him the last two times and he diagnosed me and got me on my way with some simple products (no antibiotics) but more holistic approach.

The other thing I love about him is he doesn’t put you on all these products….I have been to others that have put me on so many products and have to spend tons of money. He has you take what you need…I love his approach and he is one smart cookie and explains in terms you can understand.

Thank you Dr. E, you are well loved. Thank you for your knowledge and caring nature.

Abdominal Pain, GI Distress, Nausea, Heart Palpitations, Insomnia

If you’re reading this, it’s most likely because you’re tired of the pain you’ve been in and have been to numerous doctors who can’t resolve the health problems you have. Like so many others, I had been struggling with a multitude of pain and symptoms (ABDOMINAL PAIN, GI DISTRESS, NAUSEA, HEART PALPITATIONS, INSOMNIA to name a few) which made it hard to be happy and healthy in daily life. For the last 3 years especially, I’d been to specialists who could only provide expensive diagnostic tests and pills which never got rid of the pains and symptoms, or brought on different ones. It wasn’t until I found Marcus Ettinger’s reviews on Yelp that I felt that maybe; there could be someone who could help with my health troubles. I called Dr. Ettinger that same day and he was easy to talk to, he listened to my issues, and I was able to see him that same week!

It’s been 2 months since my first appointment with Dr. Ettinger and I’m compelled to write this review because my health issue is resolved! Marcus Ettinger is a wealth of knowledge who explains to you in easy to relate terms about your treatment, his love of helping people is evident in his practice, and he is effective. Taking that step to make that appointment and take responsibility for my health has changed my life completely for the better. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus Ettinger if you are looking for relief from your pain and symptoms.

H. pylori

I went to Marcus Ettinger to be treated for H-Pylori. Prior to that, I was being treated by 2 GI’s (Gastroenterologists) who had told me that there is nothing more than they can do for me. I had taken 5 courses of antibiotics and that darn bacteria did not go away. I found Marcus through a chat forum for H-Pylori and when I contacted him, he gave me an appointment right away, the following day. What a relief!! I was at a loss after what the GI’s had told me. Marcus gave me the treatment and within 3 weeks, the bacteria was gone. My GI asked for the information on Marcus so that he can refer patients to him.

Marcus is the picture of health, great service; a few times, he went to the clinic just to see me. He is truly concerned for his patients and treats them as his number one priority. As I am writing this, I have tears in my eyes, when I went to him, I had no hope whatsoever of getting rid of H-Pylori… after what the GI’s had told me. His clinic/office is very clean and he is a generous and kind practitioner. He gives you only what you need and he has a vast knowledge about health and keeps up to date.

What a joy it is to be treated by Marcus Ettinger DC. I was just at his office, you come back feeling happy and elated… Of course, he knows his subject matter and he is up to date with his information.

Chiropractic and Functional Medicine

I began seeing Dr. Ettinger 2 years ago. A good friend of mine referred him to me as she has been attending his practice over 18 years now.

Originally I came to see him because of hip issues and my husband had serious back pain. Dr. Ettinger has helped us recover and is so wonderful at sharing extra tips and showing us how to stretch and prevent further issues.

He’s highly knowledgeable about diet and health. He gives great advice on eating right and it’s definitely helped to maintain weight. He seems to always have a solution for any new body changes. My husband and I see him monthly and are extremely pleased with him. We recommend him to anyone who needs an adjustment, helps with weight loss or wants to truly get healthy.


Stomach Pain and Sinus Infection

I first met Dr. Ettinger a year ago when the practitioner I usually see was not available. This was meant to be because I have since become the recipient of an excellent standard of holistic care.

The sharp stomach pains I had been experiencing for a week were 90% better by that evening and I was able to go to a concert. Also, on later visits, he helped me to identify and treat the bacteria that were causing my sinus infections.

I appreciate how present and sincere he is and how I did not feel rushed, as I often do with other holistic chiropractors. Also, he is happy to explain the mechanisms behind what he is doing and is never condescending, always willing to teach and share as he goes.

Dr. E’s background in biochemistry and his decades of experience with being a medical detective combined with his patience and empathy to make him a first-rate true holistic care provider.

Rebecca M.

Chiropractic and Functional Medicine

I went in for a simple adjustment and got a LOT more for his time. He is into the complete person, the big picture. I’ve had 3 visits so far and cannot wait to learn and master my own wellness!

Post Chemotherapy Following Breast Cancer

Hello, my name is Maria; Dr. Marcus Ettinger has been treating me since March 26, 2014. I’m a breast cancer survivor. Due to all the side effects of chemo, my body was not good. It’s been 7 months now since I started with Dr. Marcus and I can thank him enough! I’m feeling GREAT! I’m so happy that I found him, he is definitely the best!

Maria M.

Chronic Lyme Disease

I have found Dr. Ettinger’s help indispensable! My son is chronically sick with Lyme Disease and I juggle many different docs as we try to take him out of an acute state of pain. He’s been the voice of reason for us and helps to weed out the superfluous recommendations and stick with the necessary supplements. I’ve found our calls to be educational for me, and I head back to our many doctors very aware of the situations I had not understood prior.

He knows so much about the body’s various systems–and from a holistic and functional medicine standpoint, I think I am educating the docs now through his help! Conventional medicine just does not take the “whole body” into account–I only feel safe seeing a conventional doc when I can get feedback from Dr. E after.

I found him online (he had the best information–and I’ve spent A LOT of time searching for smart people), and we’ve spoken many, many times over the past nine months. I just wish I were closer!! I know there is a lot he could do in his office to help too….a trip may be coming!

Thanks, Doc!

H. pylori

Dr. Ettinger is a life saver. I had been to every type of doctor for a Helicobacter Pylori infection. No one was able to help me out. I had no hope of getting any better, but Dr. Ettinger pulled me out of the abyss and I am able to work now and have somewhat of a normal life. I’m still working with him and every time I see him I feel better. He is very knowledgeable and very caring. I recommend him to anyone I know that is suffering from any illness.

If you have a chance to see him, do yourself a favor and make an appointment with him.

Jon C.

Chiropractic and Functional Medicine

I have known Dr. Marcus Ettinger for over 20 years and over that period of time he has been an expert chiropractor and holistic doctor for my family and I. My son and grandson have seen him over the years several times. He is always very precise with his adjustments. His knowledge of the human body and biology is exemplary. He has a unique technique that allows him to really tune into your body to find the cause of your problem. He listens carefully giving you his full attention.

Dr. Ettinger has helped me tremendously with some recent health issues. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field of nutrition. He helps you to get what you truly need and does not load you up with things you do not need. I really don’t know what I would have done without him, he has been a lifesaver! Thank you, Dr. Ettinger 🙂

He is the best support system to help you be all you can be. I had gained some weight over the years and he advised me on how to change my diet to lose the excess weight. I lost 25 lbs easily over 2 years ago and still have been able to keep those pounds off.

He is the kind of doctor that looks you in the eyes and gives you a big smile, that’s a big plus! You won’t be sorry in choosing Dr. Ettinger for you and your families health needs!

H. pylori and Functional Medicine

Hello Doctor,

With tears in my eyes, I just want to thank you for helping me with this my H. pylori. My stool test came back negative. I am so thankful for you and speechless. I am not sure how I got blessed enough to find you but I am forever grateful. You are changing lives and I want you to be our doctor forever. You took your time to explain everything to me and actually cared about my progress. WOW. You don’t see doctors like that anymore. Thank you so much. I know $500 may not be much but I sent you a check as a thank you. I will also like to pay for 15 mins of your time to discuss a solid plan moving forward that involves dealing with the gut dysbiosis and chemical sensitivity. We are waiting for my dad’s stool test to come back for his consult with you. THANK YOU SO MUCH.



I found Dr. Ettinger, through a family member who recommended him to me. I have been a patient of his for almost 3 years and he is AMAZING. I have back issues and used to have gallbladder attacks on a monthly basis. Since he is a functional medicine doctor as well, and I did not want surgery to remove the gallstones, I quickly went to him. I have not had 1 attack since. Not to mention, my back feels like new. He is very passionate about his work, and loves helping people feel their best!

Dr. Ettinger Saved My Life

I was misdiagnosed for two years. Finally found what I had on Dr. Ettinger’s website. I was very ill at this point and would go as far as saying he saved my life. He also helped me with protocol and health advice to get over the bacterial infection. Most doctors/specialists do not deal with bacteria, especially at the level Dr. E does. I have never run across any physician/naturopath etc that knows as much about bacteria/virus and protocols.

Thank you, Dr. E!!!

Gail M.


H. pylori

I saw Dr. Ettinger about 5 times over a period of 6 months and he helped me to get rid of a nasty bacteria called H. Pylori. I was fighting my stomach problems for about 4 years, before I found Dr. Ettinger, doing online research.

The first contact with Dr. E. was over the phone. He called me right back after I left him a message. That’s how everything started. I live in LA, his office is in Orange. To stay out of heavy traffic, I would leave Saturday morning early to go to my appointments. Dr. Ettinger has always been kind and patient, even when I was late.

After all those years I can finally eat and drink whatever I like. I am so happy, I have my life back. I highly recommend Dr. Ettinger, his knowledge is amazing and he really loves what he is doing. He has given me my life back. I will always be thankful for it.
Thank you, Dr. Ettinger.

(I have consulted different health professionals, did research for hours and spend tons of money to cure myself. H. pylori is a nasty bacteria and many people are still not cured after many rounds of antibiotics.)

Precious B.

Bad Root Canal and Functional Medicine

Dr. Ettinger has been my chiropractor for over 20 years. He has also been adjusting my sons since they were babies. He is very knowledgeable in holistic medicine and nutrition. At one point I developed horrible neck and upper back pain on my left side which he figured out was due to a root canal that was done incorrectly. I referred one good friend whose MD gave no hope for her condition in which Dr. Ettinger handled in about six months, another example of what a great Doc he is. I look forward to my appointments knowing I’ll come out feeling renewed.

Ari P.



It must be my intuition that lead me to pick Advanced Healing Center among all the other ones here on Yelp. What stood out to me was the word “healing”. I had another sciatica attack today and was in desperate search for a Chiropractor and of course, I had to go through the long list on Yelp. What I liked about Dr. Ettinger is his functional medicine approach to his treatment, he also takes the time to explain what he’s doing and why not only did he do Chiropractic adjustment but he also tested me for deficiency in minerals. I learned so much more about the root cause of the sciatica attack. I was very satisfied with my visit and I definitely feel a huge difference with just one visit, I noticed I have more energy and my back feels 90% better.

Debra A.

Functional Medicine

Dr. Ettinger has given me my health back! After so much trial and error with many naturopaths and self-diagnosing, I found relief with Dr. Ettinger. He has an amazing ability to understand what is happening to the body and how to correct it. I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about having absolute health, vitality, and a true personal regimen.

Susie E.

Professional Referral

Dr. Ettinger is more than just a structural chiropractor. He is a functional medicine practitioner. Trained in several different techniques outside normal chiropractic. He interprets labs and has extensive knowledge of western and eastern medicine as well as nutrition.

Dixie Wall, L.Ac, Holistic Health Practitioner

Functional Medicine

I have been a patient of Dr. Marcus Ettinger for a couple of decades. When I had growing boys I took them to see him–always with good results. I have referred many friends and associates and family to him with total confidence. Good health and healthy living practices are Dr. Ettinger’s passion and he is the perfect guy to get anyone on a healthy track and to repair situations that are a physical problem. He knows people and he knows bodies. It is a great combination and one that leads to success. I wholeheartedly endorse him and his practice.

Deborah D.

High Blood Sugar and Cortisol 

I started seeing Dr. Ettinger in 2010 for high blood sugar. Within 3 months, my glucose level was down, along with my weight. My energy level was up.

Since then, he has helped me with high cortisol, which contributes to pain, hot flashes, high glucose levels, and many other problems. He recommended a supplement to support my cholesterol, and another for ligament health, which helped with hair loss as well.

Dr. E is a great listener. He has a vast knowledge of body chemistry. He has done extensive research in the field of natural remedies in place of drugs. I always felt great after a visit with him.



Dr. Ettinger is amazing. I started going to him after I saw how he helped my daughter get out of pain without pain medication. I am in my 70’s and have fibromyalgia. He studied my body type giving me supplements that have made it possible for me to become more active.

I have never had a doctor listen and study my problem to this extent. He is the main reason I am now more active. When anyone asks for a referral, Dr. Ettinger is who I recommend.


Ulcerative Colitis

I was referred to Dr. Ettinger by a friend after my daughter struggled with Ulcerative Colitis. At 13 she had lost 25% of her body weight, weighed only 69 pounds and was homebound, homeschooling and very poor quality of life due to the illness. Her traditional GI was pushing for Immunosuppressive drugs but after reading about all the risks and side effects, I couldn’t do it unless it was a last resort. After working with Dr. Ettinger, and his knowledge about the body, what causes certain conditions, and how to heal the body naturally with diet and nutritional supplements, she is now back in school, playing sports, actively involved at church, back to healthy weight and living her life again. Dr. Ettinger is caring and authentic. He truly cares about his patients and is dedicated to helping them get well. He has been very flexible and I have no problems getting appointments when I need them.

Renee C.

Chiropractic and Functional Medicine

Dr. E has treated our entire extended family at one time or another. He not only treats the symptoms or problems but takes the time to get to the root of the issue. I highly recommend him for your health needs. He is the BEST!!

Dana B.

Back Pain, Fatigue and Heart Health

Dr. Ettinger is professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for over 16 years, for back pain, fatigue, and heart health concerns. His treatments are painless and extremely effective. The office is clean and the atmosphere relaxing. I found Advanced Healing Center to be a very positive experience overall.

Ed F.


Best chiropractic doc around….extremely knowledgeable. Doctor Ettinger is excellent when it comes to his adjustments.

Alex R.

H. pylori

I was treated by Dr. Ettinger for H. pylori and within two to three weeks it was gone. The treatment included several supplements which was much better than taking the high dose of antibiotics that are normally prescribed for this bacteria. He is knowledgeable in all aspects of holistic health and is genuinely interested in helping his patients.

Nancy M.

Migraines, Stomach Issues, and Prenatal Care 

I have been coming to Dr. Marcus Ettinger for over 20 years now! I originally came to him from a recommendation from another friend who had seen him. I was suffering from terrible migraine headaches and had gone to my regular doctor and was having no luck finding any relief. At first, I was hesitant to check out someone new but once I met Marcus and listened to him explain how things work in our bodies, I figured I’d give him a shot.

After an adjustment, some dietary changes and added supplements, I was no longer experiencing the debilitating migraines. I then asked him about my stomach issues and he got me on track with that too. I have always been so pleased with Marcus that I trusted him 100% in helping me through my pregnancy, keeping me comfortable and having a quick, natural delivery with his adjustments and supplements. He is my go-to guy with any health issues or just to keep me on track. Easy to talk too and always full of information. You can tell he has a passion for good health and want his patients to have it too!

Lisa G.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

I had been taking ADHD medication for over 10 years and wanted to get off them. Dr. Ettinger helped me do that. Between a balanced diet and exercise plan, I am pill free and feeling better than ever.

Andrew H.

Epstein Barr, Fibromyalgia, Hypothyroidism, and Chronic Fatigue

I came to Dr. Ettinger after 1 year’s treatment with another chiropractor for a car accident. I wasn’t getting better. I also suffer from Epstein Barr, Fibromyalgia, Hypothyroidism, and Chronic Fatigue. Dr. Ettinger treated me with Chiropractic care, supplements, and healthy living advice. With his help, I have been able to rid myself of decades of chronic pain that had been further aggravated by the car accident. I feel decades younger than my years. I didn’t believe it was possible to feel this good ever again. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus Ettinger, B.Sc., D.C. for your health.

He has a wonderful caring spirit and a light sense of humor, too.


Intestinal Issues

Dr. Marcus Ettinger is the best chiropractor around Orange and offers exceptional care in a holistic approach. He has helped me with my intestinal issues and given me a treatment plan that no other doctor has offered me. I highly recommend Dr. Ettinger to anyone looking for an alternative way to treat their conditions. He is extremely knowledgeable on diet and exercise, and Dr. Ettinger is always doing research and expanding his knowledge of anything you could think of.

Alisa I.

Salivary Gland Stones and Chiropractic Care

I have been seeing Dr. E for a long time – 20 years+. His adjustments are spot on; he can tell exactly where you need to be adjusted without cracking your whole back. One time my jaw swelled up like a chipmunk, so I went to the dentist but the X-Rays turned out fine. Dr. E did a short exam and told me that I had an infection in my lymph nodes and gave me a supplement to take. Within 3 days I was back to normal.

What is significant about this is that the dizziness I had been experiencing also went away; I thought I was just getting old as I would drive very carefully. Regular Dr’s would probably have cost me a lot and multiple expensive tests with no results but within minutes he literally just figured it out. I also use to get these skin tags that after taking some supplements they started falling off on their own. My parents and I use to call him the Witch Doctor, LOL.

Betsy R.

Functional Medicine

Dr. Ettinger is, hands-down, the best chiropractor on this side of the Mississippi. No matter what my symptoms show when I go to see him, he always addresses the whole body. It’s very refreshing to have a doctor who treats the cause, not just puts a band-aid on the symptoms.

As a certified massage therapist, I am so happy to have found Dr. Ettinger. When it comes to my health, I will search far and wide for the person that pays attention to detail (which he does) and has in-depth knowledge of all things body related (he always impresses me with his ability to explain how the body works and makes me really understand what is going on). So happy that the search is over and that Dr. Ettinger is an integral part of my overall health and wellness.

Dr. Ettinger is someone who is committed to helping you stay healthy, not lecturing you about all the stuff you’re not doing or should be doing. He takes the time to listen and to explain. It’s clear he wants to help you and has helped me for years. I would recommend him to everyone!

Michelle W.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Insomnia

Dr. Ettinger has been treating my daughter for over 3 months now for inflammatory bowel disease. Since May 2011 she has been through many hospitalizations, multiple surgeries and pharmacological treatment – none of which have helped her. Dr. Ettinger has a brilliant mind and is very knowledgeable in the areas of chiropractic, chronic diseases, nutrition, diet, and holistic remedies.

As soon as we met him, we knew we were in good hands. He has a BIG HEART! He is genuine, sincere and caring towards my daughter and me. We just wish we had found him sooner. I am very grateful to him for his help.

On a side note, he is helping me with chronic insomnia that has plagued me for 18 years. We look forward to our appointments with him and leave feeling positive and happy every time. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done and continues to do in our journey to wellness.

Elizabeth H.

Functional Medicine and Chiropractic

Since I have been under the care of Dr. Ettinger, I have noticed a big health improvement where most of my chronic issues have disappeared. I’m on a once a month visit schedule and notice he does only minimal adjustments now because the cause of the chronic pains has been sourced. There was very specific nutrition support I needed, and now that I have followed his directions, I am reaping the benefits of a happier, calmer life. It’s like my life-long fight or flight issues have flown out the window. ~Thanks, Doc!

Compounded Digestive and Psychological Issues (IBD)

I had struggled with compounded digestive & psychological issues (IBD) for the better part of 8 years. I’d seen a wide array of doctors, spent way too much money on countless supplements and tirelessly researched my condition to no avail. I genuinely thought I was going to spend the rest of my life (I’m only 24) chasing my health, never getting better, constantly wishing for a solution.

When I came across Dr. Ettinger’s articles, I was impressed by the level of clarity, depth of research, and comprehensiveness of solutions. On a whim, I gave him a call. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. After getting my test results back and following Dr. Ettinger’s (much simpler and much cheaper than what I had previously been doing) protocol, I was a different person. For the first time in my life, I consistently wake up every day feeling well. I’m so thankful I made the change, and so thankful people like Dr. Ettinger exist. If you have a chronic health issue, please don’t ever give up. Your health is within reach, and people like Dr. Ettinger can help you find it.


H. pylori

I had a Helicobacter pylori infection. It produced wind in the stomach and bowel and great pressure, which produced severe pain referred to the chest and so was initially thought to be heart problems. Eventually, it was treated successfully with a couple of antibiotics. They killed all the bacteria in the gut, of course, and, although the H. pylori stopped giving trouble, I began to get every infection of every sort that appeared in my grandson’s school. He did not have to get the infection – he just passed it on. Everything, until I began to take probiotic supplements. Then after a few years, the symptoms of H. pylori reappeared. Not wishing to use antibiotics again, I consulted Marcus Ettinger, took what he prescribed and the infection was dealt with and, this time has not reoccured.

Chiropractic and Life Coaching

I have to say Dr. Ettinger is the best chiropractor and life coach I have been to! He is very knowledgeable and gives you his full attention when you are with him. He has helped me not with just cracking my back but with issues from weight loss, dehydration, sleep, stress, muscle fatigue and even has helped in my small business. He very honest and genuine person and will give what you need and not much more. I go in for a routine tune-up for my body, sometimes emergencies, but leave feeling filled up mentally along with physically.

Thank you so much, Dr. Ettinger!!!

Dr. E is amazing!! He’s professional, personable, and very knowledgeable! He reviewed my lab blood results with me and pointed out that things weren’t all “fine and dandy” like my primary physician said. He explained why I was feeling the way I was and started me on supplements that changed my life! He explained to me what I needed and why and I followed his instructions and I’m feeling great. His adjustments are heavenly too and I’m so glad my friend recommended him. His office is nice, clean, and in a good area. Parking is available and free and he seems to have all supplements he recommends on hand so you can start taking them right away. His website is full of useful information and you can also find him on Facebook! If you want to feel better and be healthier, you must go see Dr. E!!

I can’t thank Dr. Ettinger enough for making me feel better. His expertise and knowledge are far superior to the many Dr’s I’ve been too. His adjustments are amazing and his tuning into my body chemistry helps me understand what is going on internally. His prices are more than fair for the quality care he provides. I actually look forward to my appointment and the education he provides me about my body. Thank you, Dr. Ettinger!


Thank you, Dr. Marcus, for helping my family heal and guiding us down a healthy path. I’ve been to many types of Drs and I’m really impressed with your knowledge and the way you educate us!!


A Chronic Cough, Pneumonia

Dr. Ettinger is extremely patient and knowledgeable. My husband and I have both gone to him. We have been under his care for the last year and have followed his advice and regimen allowing us to both live a healthy lifestyle and help with our health issues. My husband had a chronic cough that he inherited in the military when he caught pneumonia for the last 15 years and was getting progressively worse. We had gone through so much trying to find a remedy he was hospitalized many times and seen by many specialists, he was diagnosed multiple times and with different things because no one was certain what he had. WE WERE EXHAUSTED and felt hopeless we had hit a block wall. We came to Dr. Ettinger with a spark of hope and prayed he could do something. He not only helped my husbands cough he became our family Dr.

Thank you, Dr. Ettinger, for your kindness, advice, and patience. You have taught us so much. We will be forever grateful.

Ulcerative Colitis

I first went to see Dr. Ettinger April of this year. I was having a terrible Ulcerative Colitis flare which ended up putting me in the hospital for a week. With Dr. Ettinger’s wisdom and experience, he was able to help guide me so that I could get off of my medications and heal in a more holistic way.

I was truly at one of my lowest points. He was gentle, patient, compassionate and very understanding. He gave me hope so that I could believe that I would heal. With some trial and error, we found what works and I am almost in complete remission and have gained back the 20 pounds I had lost during my flare. Dr. Ettinger is the real deal! A true holistic healer with the science to back up his approach. He is very well read and researched. I trust his wisdom and I am so thankful to have him as part of my healing team!

Returning Back FromThree Pregnancies In Three Years

I’ve been going to Dr. Ettinger for a year now. He’s got such a wealth of knowledge about the body, it’s truly incredible. He’s helped me tremendously on the road to recovery after struggling with all kinds of energy zapping ailments following three pregnancies in three years. I think one of the best things about him is that he practices what he preaches. I have seen doctors before who are lifeless, overweight, tuned out. Dr. Ettinger is the opposite. He is vibrant, healthy and brimming with energy. It’s nice to see someone who practices what he preaches.

Dr. Ettinger is an all-around great person, and his prices are reasonable to boot. I highly recommend him.

Abdominal Pain, Blood, and Mucus In My Stool 

After two years and 8 different health care providers, Dr. Ettinger healed me in a matter of weeks with his approach.

For two long years, I experienced terrible abdominal pain, blood, and mucus in my stool, and general exhaustion. I was beginning to give up on being well again and thought that feeling this way was my new “normal.” I tried everything.

My digestive symptoms were what most people on the internet call “rope worms,” which Dr. Ettinger believes is a form of colitis. I saw GI specialists, Naturopathic Doctors, Integrative Medicine Doctors, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists and general physicians. I spent thousands of dollars and found no relief. I did the Specific Carbohydrate Diet for 2 years (no sugar or starchy carbs). My last ditch effort was to call Dr. Ettinger.

Dr. Ettinger’s approach is simple compared to what my previous naturopath had me doing. And most importantly, IT WORKED!!! I noticed results within a week. I have tons of energy, normal stools, no abdominal pain, and no mucus or blood. Dr. Ettinger is the real deal. He is compassionate, a great communicator, and has a genuine interest in helping heal his patients.

Dr.E is the BEST in the business!!! He has helped me personally not to mention my entire family. If you are looking for someone to FIX your health issues vs. mask them, Dr. E is it. He has a way of breaking things down and making you understand the complexity of the body and how our alignments can be traced back to a root cause, that once is determined, the issues no longer exist.

I highly recommend Dr. E to all of my family and friends and will NOT go anywhere else.

Keep up the good work!!!

My teenaged son and I are both thankful patients. Dr. Ettinger has helped us both clear conditions that medical doctors either couldn’t figure out or scoffed at. Genuine healers are rare. Dr. Ettinger is one.

I began seeing Dr. Ettinger 2 years ago. A good friend of mine referred him to me as she has been attending his practice over 18 years now.

Originally I came to see him because of hip issues and my husband had serious back pain. Dr. Ettinger has helped us recover and is so wonderful at sharing extra tips and showing us how to stretch and prevent further issues.

He’s highly knowledgeable in diet and health. He gives great advice on eating right and it’s definitely helped to maintain weight. He seems to always have a solution for any new body changes. My husband and I see him monthly and are extremely pleased with him. We recommend him to anyone who needs an adjustment, helps with weight loss or wants to truly get healthy.
