Testimonials

 

On top of being incredible at fixing whatever seems to ail me at the moment, and aligning my body back to perfection, I originally went to Dr. Rettner to lose weight. I’d gone to one of his workshops and thought he might be able to help, where everything else seemed to fail. He’s skilled at finding out what the original problem is for the weight GAIN. He runs many tests for the different systems and parts of the body, including thyroid, the adrenals, the kidney and liver function, etc. and we literally ruled out things through tests until we found the winning combination for me of diet modification and proper supplements to improve my depleted adrenal system. I finally reached my weight goal, and I’m overjoyed!

I went to see Dr. Rettner because I wanted to lose weight. The process we went through over a period of eight weeks ultimately was more important as a way of taking responsibility for my health, and making changes in my diet and lifestyle that were important and hopefully will assist in longer range health goals. And eventually, I even lost some weight! And what a lovely person he is. – Charylu R. Los Angeles, CA


Dr. Rettner is a HEALER! After seeing many medical specialists for over a year to address a multitude of symptoms, including severe pain, inexplicable falls, skin rashes, and memory impairment, I felt discouraged neither cause nor cure were found. In one visit to Dr. Rettner I experienced a miraculous healing on multiple levels of my being and now have a vibrant life once again. The joy of returning to dance, and losing 25 lbs. effortlessly in less than three months is astounding to me. His gift to the world as a healer is a treasure for those who need healing. – Yollanda G., Alameda


I got on the scale after 2 treatments and I had lost 6 pounds. Dr. Rettner’s combination of common sense and science works amazingly well and you won’t feel deprived! -Ashley


 

“I tried to lose weight before seeing Dr Rettner but couldn’t. I haven’t been this skinny in fifteen years. Since I discontinued using sugar in my diet I have lost so much weight that I’ve gone down 3 notches in my belt and no longer suffer from heartburn. -Phil, Marin County

His wife Julie said “I have never seen him this thin since we’ve been married. He’s proud because his friends have noticed how much weight he’s lost.” Julie also said “Since eliminating sugar, rice, corn and wheat from my diet, the extra mini-pregnancy has disappeared. I can now wear clothes that made me feel unattractive-before the changes in my diet.”


 

Although I came to you with a weight problem, you managed to help me with so much more. I learned about my food allergies and a whole array of foods which I like and are beneficial to me. I’ve lost over thirty pounds and I’m still easily losing two pounds per week. I feel better than I have in years. Thank you for all you do.  – Judie F., Marin County


Dr. Rettner is a true healer. A visit to his office is like going to an appointment with a guardian Angel. He takes a holistic approach and this is why I say that. I have had upper neck pain, a twisted vertebra in the middle of my back and lower back pain. These were completely associated with most if not all of my physical pain and suffering. He has totally transformed my back and stabilized my spine. I haven’t felt this limber and flexible since I was 15 years old. Every time I walk out of there I feel like I’m gliding and I can’t stop smiling. I feel absolutely great. All anxieties and temper flares have just melted away. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone! – Brad


As a colleague who’s been adjusted by many other chiropractors since I began receiving care in 1976, I have a large basis for comparison. Dr. Rettner is outstanding! His clinical skills, diagnostic and adjusting skills are superb. I have recommended him to my family members without reservation. He sets the bar high. My neck hasn’t been in such great shape for years!!! A gifted chiropractor! -Jill C.Berkeley, CA


Dear Dr. Rettner:
It was a wonderful experience meeting you. As a mother of 4 children and with a full-time job, I lived with great pain, for the last 10 years. The pain was located in my neck, back, pelvis and legs. Throughout this period I saw many doctors, professors and specialists to relieve my pain, all to no avail. Recommendations included cortisone shots, surgery and early retirement, but all meant living with the pain.

Upon visiting my daughter, I reluctantly agreed to see you at my daughter’s request. After your first treatment, I experienced great relief from the pain and looked forward to the next visit. After my third visit, I felt no pain whatsoever. For me this was simply a miracle; for you, Dr. Rettner in your words “It was an easy case.”

Now I am no longer restricted in my movements. I crawl with my grandson on the floor and laugh with tremendous joy as nobody except myself can really understand what it means to be free of pain after 10 years of suffering.
Even though I had my doubts, the results far surpassed my expectatons. You made my stay in California a wonderful experience which I will treasure always. I now have a future filled with hope, health and happiness. My only regret is that there are others who suffer (as I did) and don’t need to.
With many thanks, – Hannalore Stoffeler, Germany

I’d like to thank you for providing your very effective 8-week plan. I really appreciate your very positive and knowledgeable approach in helping improve my total health. I’m enclosing my recent blood chemistry tests from my family doctor. In eight short weeks, my total cholesterol has dropped 19% from 201 to 163, my triglycerides dropped 26% from 251 to 185 and my weight dropped twelve pounds. -Thank you, Tom B., Berkeley, CA
