Dr. Ruckel has been extensively studying nutrition for over 30 years.  His objective has been to find the worlds finest nutritional supplements and utilize them with his family, staff and patients.  He believes strongly in food based nutrition rather than the use of synthetic vitamins.

Dr. Ruckel uses products from Standard Process Labs which has over 1,000 acres of organic farm land in Wisconsin.  They grow over 26 different crops and process them at their state of the art facilities.  He also utilizes Medi Herb herbal products, which is the #1 herbal company in Australia and was founded by one of the top herbalists in the world, Kerry Bone.  Our clinic custom blends herbal products specific to the patient’s symptoms and complaints.  We also utilize a variety of homeopathic products including Bach flower remedies.  Click on the link below to visit the Standard Process and Medi Herb website.


Acupuncture is a health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body.  Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1,000 “acupoints” on the body.  This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body.  When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident.  Stimulation of one or a combination of key “acupoints” on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.

Acupuncture, including the use of a needle, laser, acupressure or electrical stimulation is a principle, not a technique.  Therefore, there are many ways to stimulate an acupoint.  The principle of acupuncture does not change, only the technique.  We have found that the course of acupuncture, chiropractic care and nutrition has been very effective for a wide variety of conditions.

In our clinic, we have seen good results with conditions ranging from back and neck pain, headaches, allergies, fibromyalgia and smoking cessation.
