Julian Whitaker, MD, opened the Whitaker Wellness Institute in 1979 with the goal of helping people regain and maintain optimal health with safe, natural therapies such as diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements. From its inception, the clinic has attracted patients with serious diseases who have not been helped—or have been harmed—by conventional medicine. The Whitaker Wellness Institute follows the same model today. Patients are instructed in health-enhancing lifestyle changes. They are prescribed a personalized program of targeted nutritional supplements. And they are treated with highly effective noninvasive therapies that are ignored by conventional medicine. As a result, our patients are, in most cases, able to reduce or discontinue their prescription drugs and bypass recommended surgeries and other invasive procedures. We are now the largest, most comprehensive integrative medical clinic in the United States, and over the past 30-plus years, we have helped more than 45,000 patients restore their health, safely and naturally.
