Whole Body Health in Medina is a functional holistic family practice that aims to figure out why people are getting sicker and address those issues through natural medicine.

“I liken modern medicine to the parable, ‘The Emperor is Wearing no Clothes,’” says founder and sixth-generation physician Dr. Tim Weeks.

“Everyone knows it’s broken and not getting people healthy, but because there is so much money in it nobody stands up and says anything about it. We are the alternative to modern medicine.”

Whole Body Health specializes in cases such as chronic pain, autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, digestive issues and fatigue.

Exhausted? Stressed? Overweight?
“America is getting sicker,” he says. “We see it all around us. People are more fatigued, more stressed out, more overweight. Cancer is the number one cause of death in children and one-third of adults are expected to get dementia.”

Most problems are functional, he adds, and blood work and a physical exam don’t catch these issues, which lead to low energy, inflammation, allergies, hormonal fluctuations, weight gain, etc.

These maladies are usually triggered by low nutrition, low oxygen in the body, food allergies, toxicity issues such as heavy metals, immune burdens and twists in the spine, he says.

To discover the triggers, Whole Body Health practitioners perform a nutritional exam, measure the charge of the body (just like a battery), use biofeedback, muscle testing and X-rays.

Once they’ve pinpointed the triggers, they use the following techniques to heal them:

  • Live O2 Exercise with Oxygen – reduces acid in the body and activates mitochondria for increased healing.
  • Decompression and Chiropractic – for removing twists in the spine.
  • Laser Acupuncture and Allergy Elimination – focuses on reprograming allergies, like allergy shots but with no needles.
  • Emotion Code Therapy – designed to help eliminate stored emotions that are making you sick.
  • HALO and Rife Machine – frequency therapy to help kill infection and speed healing.
  • TKM – a hands-on healing protocol designed to increase cellular charge.
  • Nutritional protocols – custom created by Dr. Monzo using biofeedback.
  • Salt cave – helps with respiratory issues, skin issues and promotes relaxation and healing.

“To further heal our patients, we promote traditional diets focused on stabilizing blood sugar and nutritional density,” he says, noting their expansive health food store offers a wide variety of nutritional foods.

Dr. Tim Weeks

Education: B.S. in Human Biology and a Doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic, St. Louis, MO.

At the age of nine, Dr. Timothy Weeks was hit by a car, which led to more than a decade of health problems, from rolling his ankles to dislocating his shoulder more than 100 times to having a continuous cough and losing hair from stress and anxiety.

While studying to become a Doctor of Chiropractic, he learned how physicians in ancient times routinely healed diseases we are now told are incurable. He applied that education to his own life and felt as if he was experiencing a miracle with his healing. He opened what is now called Whole Body Health and has helped thousands of people regain their health.

Wanting to help even more people, Dr. Tim wrote a book, Living Whole Body Health: Escape Medicine, Heal Yourself and Become a WBH Warrior, outlining his health philosophy and treatment.
