Comments: 0 | July 14th, 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.”

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.
