Meet Dr. Jurack
Dr. Jurack Has a Story: My first exposure to chiropractic care came in grade school when my parents brought me to a chiropractor after finding out I had a scoliosis (abnormal spinal curvature). I have always been involved in sports and continued to use chiropractic care throughout my high school and college years to keep me injury free and operating at peak performance. Not knowing whether or not I wanted to become a medical doctor, or a chiropractor, I decided to take advantage of the shadowing program at Carroll College where I was studying pre-med. After only shadowing the medical doctors around for a couple hours, I knew this was not going to be my path in life. The atmosphere was sterile and cold, and the patients were coming in unhappy and drained. The doctors saw numerous patients in a relatively short amount of time and prescribed the same meds over and over again. By contrast, when I shadowed the chiropractor, the atmosphere was warm and caring, and the patients were coming in happy and ready to get well. I noticed the doctor spent time with each patient and was treating the cause of the problem. The patients were there to get healthy and acted alive when they were leaving the office. I then started working for this chiropractor and loved it! We saw miracles every day.read more
Traveling to competitions in various towns, our teams made many fast food stops…needless to say, the countless cheeseburgers and sodas consumed, quickly led to my weight gain and extremely high cholesterol.
Having been retired for several years, and having been under great stress as a caretaker for a relative with pancreatic cancer, I also began experiencing low energy and fatigue.
It was time to get some help for myself! Finally, some answers for my arthritis, back pain, leg pain, high cholesterol, and weight gain.
“Muskego Health & Wellness Center has changed my life!”
Dr. Jurack has skillfully adjusted my back and reduced my neck and leg pain (no more headaches…Hurrah!)
I did not expect anything but spinal adjustments at a chiropractor’s office, but here there was more…Much more…
Dr Jurack assess my condition as low thyroid and in turn recommended supplements that alleviated my fatigue and low energy. Also, her supplements helped my hair loss.
I participated in her allergy testing which determined there was a specific food (tomatoes) that might be contributing to inflammation and my joint pain. A food plan was developed to address the inflammation and low thyroid issues.
A special opportunity for my overall health was to have a “therapeutic massage” by Meranda. It was super!
Besides alleviating my neck, back and leg pain…No more night sweats!...I have lowered my cholesterol…triglycerides by 50 points, LDL by 67 points, and overall cholesterol by 92 points.
As a “side benefit”, I lost weight: 24 pounds: Dropped 2 jean sizes: Lost 25 ¼ inches overall (including 5” from my hips and 4 ½ “ from my waist). I am looking forward to a new wardrobe now!
I thought I was fairly healthy. I thought living with joint pain was just a part of getting older…As I fast approach the age of 70, I would like to say “it is never too late to improve your health. If you are given the knowledge and follow the techniques offered by the caring people at the Muskego Health & Wellness Center!”
Thanks for everything!
Instead of lying on the beach stuffing my face, like I thought I would, I discovered the fitness center. Every morning I walked on the treadmill, rode a stationary bike, and lifted weights. During the day I had enough energy to take frequent walks on the beach. Because of the healthy eating, taking supplements, and exercise I had actually lost weight on vacation! When I returned home I continued the program. With all the much needed support from the staff at Muskego Health , I completed the program and accomplished my weight loss goal. I feel great, am taking the supplements, and getting the necessary spinal adjustments that allow me to continue exercising. Dr. Jurack also recommended a thyroid supplement which helped slow down my hair loss. Thanks to Dr. Jurack and her staff for making my journey successful!
When I first heard this diet was 500 calories per day, I was extremely skeptical. I love food and a beer or two, so how could I get by on 500 calories per day without feeling hungry? Well, the supplements and the proper food choices were all I needed. Of course, it did require will power, but the will power wasn’t because I was going hungry; it was eating the right foods, when you were supposed to eat them and it would fill me up, even on 500 calories per day.
It is a change in life style, but when you get results this quickly it’s motivating. Some weeks, I would lose pounds but no inches and the next week, no pounds but inches all over! It also made a big difference that I was being held accountable. I knew every week, I had to go into the office and step on that scale. It made me try harder and think about things before I put them in my mouth.
The plan provides all the information you need to succeed. The drops that curb you appetite along with the vitamins and minerals your body needs with a low calorie diet. You do have to be prepared. Make the food up in advance, so that when you want to snack, you can grab the right things. The key is to take the time to make meals you really enjoy eating.
I’ve been off the plan for a month now and I’ve been maintaining my weight pretty easily. I have changed the way I’m eating because I feel better, look better and am determined to keep the weight off. I’ve grown to really appreciate and love fruit again and realize that all of those processed foods we shovel into our mouths are horrible for our bodies. Our bodies can’t function properly and it has a devastating effect on our metabolism. You metabolism can be your friend, even when you’re over 50!
Diabetes Treatment and High Blood Pressure Help
Back Pain Relief and Weight Loss
I first came to Muskego Health and Wellness Center in September 2011.
I started having multiple migraines per week when I was pregnant with my second son, who is now almost 11. Over the last 3 years I had constant dull pain every day
and migraines ranging from a 6-9 on a 10-point scale at least three times a week. I was fatigued, gaining weight, avoiding social situations, missing work or working at less than half capacity, and not enjoying life.
There were times when I knew I would get a migraine-not eating at the right time, being in the sun to long, not drinking enough fluids, being around cigarette smoke, and the week I did not take my oral contraceptives. But most of the time I would get migraines completely out of the blue. The worst was two back-to-back migraines I got that hit so hard and fast that there was no way to fight them off. I thought I was going to have an aneurism and die. My husband took me to the ER and my blood pressure was 255 over 150 due to the pain. On a scale of 1-10, those were a 15.
Right after my second son was born I went to an M.D. that specialized in headaches. He had me keep a journal of everything I did and ate. In addition I was to indicate when I started to have a headache, when it went away, and how severe on a scale of 1-10 it was. I did this for 6 weeks and then came back to meet with him to discuss the results and receive treatment. However, he never gave me treatment, he only had me repeat this cycle over and over again. Track for six weeks, come see him for five minutes, track for six weeks, etc. After seeing him four times I gave up.
I then spoke with my gynecologist about the migraines and he changed my oral contraceptives to a continual dose to cut down on the number of hormone induced migraines I would get and also prescribed Maxalt as an emergency medication when I did get a migraine. The medication worked only if I could lie down in a dark, quiet room by myself for at least 2-3 hours. With a 3 year old and a newborn, and a husband that worked second shift, that did not happen often.
Three years ago I heard of a “fantastic” doctor that started a headache clinic at a nearby hospital and she had done wonders for people who could not find relief anywhere else. I met with her along with a dietician, physical therapist, and psychologist on her staff to get a full picture of the cause of my migraines. I had no dietary issues, no structural issues, and no psychological issues causing the migraines. She then put me on anti-seizure medication to control the frequency of migraines and also gave me a new emergency medication to combat the migraines when I got one. It was a needless injection, which was not conducive to using in a crowd, on a plane, in a meeting, at an event, etc. So they prescribed Zomig, which stopped the migraines within 30 minutes of them starting. However, the anti-seizure medication did not prevent them from coming on in the first place. I then noticed that every time I tried to exercise, I would get a migraine, so they prescribed more medication. After a year of this I asked if I would ever be able to get rid of the migraines and be medication-free and they related the condition to diabetes in which a person has to take medication to control it for the rest of their lives. I was not willing to do that so I stopped all of the meds except the emergency medication. I
continued having multiple migraines a week and used the Zomig to help them go away, but I could only take that twice in a 24 hour period or twice a week, so many migraines went untreated.
The money spent on these treatments was minimal due to my husband’s excellent health insurance and prescription coverage. But the loss of time and well being along with the impact it had on my kids and marriage was far more costly. I feel like I have spent the last 11 years in a fog and was never truly able to enjoy anything that took place during that time.
Both migraine “specialists” and their “qualified nursing staffs told me there was no root cause to my migraines and the best I could do was medicate to manage the pain, but that I would always have them. However, since coming to Dr. Jurack I have found that is not true. Dr. Jurack diagnosed my issue on the first visit. Food was getting trapped in my intestine, not moving through my system, and thereby poisoning my body causing everything to swell, including the vessels in my brain that was causing my migraines. I also have arthritis in my neck that added to the pain.
After being put on a detox program to help get things moving along and starting chiropractic adjustments, my migraines and all continuous dull pain in my head went away with in a month. Except for a couple hormone related migraines, I have not had any kind of headache/migraine in the last five months. And I have been able to lose over 60 pounds due to the dietary changes and ability to exercise and participate in life again.
Dr. Jurack has given me my life back. I recommend chiropractic to anyone suffering from unnecessary illness. Being able to live without pain is an amazing feeling. Even though my insurance did not cover a penny of the treatment I received from Dr. Jurack, it was completely worth everything I paid.
