Happy 25th Birthday, Hotze Health & Wellness Center!

July 14, 2014


On July 19th, the Hotze Health & Wellness Center will celebrate 25 years transforming lives, naturally.  We want to say thank you to all of our guests who have given us the opportunity to serve them.

A little history…

The Hotze Health & Wellness Center was founded on July 19, 1989, initially as an allergy clinic, by Steven F. Hotze, M.D.  Dr. Hotze practiced mainstream medicine for 13 years in emergency and general medicine prior to opening the center.  Then a meeting with a patient changed his life forever:

“In 1989 I reached a pivotal turning point in my career as a mainstream physician. One day one of my elderly patients told me that ever since she threw away all the medications I had given her, she felt like a million dollars!  That was a huge wakeup call for me.”

                                                                                                                -Steven F. Hotze, M.D

A lifesaving discovery…

In 1992, Dr. Hotze was introduced to the book, “Hypothyroidism: The Unsuspected Illness”, by Broda Barnes, M.D., which changed not only Dr. Hotze’s life, but the lives of thousands of others suffering from hypothyroidism. It was through reading Dr. Barnes’ book that Dr. Hotze discovered the inaccuracies of relying solely on a blood test for diagnosing hypothyroidism, as well as the ineffectiveness of synthetic thyroid, or Synthroid, for treatment. Dr. Hotze discovered in Dr. Barnes’ book that the best way to diagnose hypothyroidism is by evaluating a patient’s symptoms, and that the proper treatment is through natural, desiccated thyroid hormone. This discovery has transformed the lives of our guests and given them their lives back.

We feel that the best birthday gift we could receive this year is the satisfaction of serving so many people and helping them transform their lives.  Here are the ways we are recognizing our 25th anniversary:  

“If I Had the Power” 

We’re asking  the question: “What would you do if you had the power? If you no longer had any health or physical limitations, what would you strive for?” Our mission is to help empower people to overcome their health issues and live their best life. By writing down their dreams in a public forum, people are declaring that health no longer has to be an obstacle to achieving their goals.  Click here to visit the site.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
