Dear Dr. Laura,

I can't thank you enough for helping me regain my health. A little over a year ago when I first saw you I had so many concerns it was hard to know where to begin. It seemed like all my numbers were too high or too low: blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, liver, thyroid and vit. D. I had also been suffering with terrible low back, left hip and thigh pain for about three years and hadn't had a good night's sleep for the same amount of time. I couldn't lose any weight. In fact the number was continuing to climb. What a mess!

I love the way you work with your patients with patience, friendliness and genuine concern and a longer session that allows time to actually address issues. Your specific dietary recommendations and your suggested nutritional supplements have changed my life. My numbers have or are returning to normal and I feel wonderful. I'm even gradually losing weight. I no longer crave raw sugar, candy or other desserts. It is amazing. Your referral to physical therapy helped me to heal without drugs, shots or surgery.

I will be celebrating my 65th birthday in April: an age described recently on tv as "elderly". My response to that; I am too young to be old!

Thank you, Dr. Laura, from the bottom of my heart. I am so grateful for your partnership in my health. I consider you my primary doctor and my friend,



I would like to express my appreciation for the quality work of Dr. Laura Schissell. When I met Dr. Laura I was a wreck from illness. She listened and her extra effort of kindness was calm and reassuring to me. Dr. Laura has always been available and has addressed all of my needs, and for this I would like to say "Thank You." It has been reassuring to know that she has been with me every step of the way offering a more natural solution. There have been times she has requested tests my regular doctors have overlooked. I am especially grateful for my bio-identical hormones. Thank you for giving me a choice. I was sad that my gynecologist and MD were not familiar with them, or knew how to dispense these natural hormones, as my symptoms were too great to ignore. As an animal activist, knowing my only other alternative for prescription hormones was horse's urine, well I knew if that was my only choice I would have had to buck up and suffer because I cannot imagine a horse having to stay pregnant for six months out of a year and hooked up to a urinary machine around the clock, suffering like that. So thank you for all you have invested in natural and homeopathic medicine. The horse's thank you too!

Sincerely, B.R.


Dr. Laura has helped me to get my life back! I have struggled with both anxiety and depression for my whole life. In the past, I would just end up on anti-depressant/anxiety medications and be told to go to counseling. Dr. Laura has helped me unravel the puzzle that is MY biochemistry including a condition called pyroluria. Instead of being on anti-depressants, my anxiety and depression are under control and diminishing daily with the supplements I am taking. Dr. Laura has worked closely with me, answering my questions and providing not only knowledge and her expertise but also support and encouragement. In a word she has provided.... hope! I am blessed to have her in my life helping me! Thank you Dr. Laura!



Thank you so much for your comprehensive care. You are a gifted healer and we were fortunate to have crossed paths with you.

I had been having low thyroid symptoms for over two years. My mother has Hoshimoto's disease and my sister has low thyroid as well. I went to my doctor (M.D.) to be tested (I was exhausted and my hair was thin and falling out, plus many other personal symptoms). After my doctor tested my thyroid, told me it was normal, and refused to treat me for low thyroid, I looked to naturopathic medicine for help. I began by reading "Thyroid Power" and then found Doctor Schissell by luck off the internet. I am so greatful for finding her! Not only did she run a thorough panel of tests on my thyroid, but she discovered that I did indeed have Hoshimoto's disease and began to treat me with natural supplements and then Armour. I feel so much better, the fog in my head has lifted, I have energy again and my appetite is under control. I have even begun exercising again. I owe this all to Dr. Schissell! She is an excellent care provider who really listens to you and takes a thorough history. I am also greatful that she did not dismiss any of my vague symptoms, which most doctors tend to do to women. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking out a thorough, caring doctor with vast experience and knowledge.

Thank you for all that you have done for me!



In an attempt to transition from "Main Stream" medicine to naturopathic, I did not have a clue where to start. I feel so blessed to have found Dr. Laura and she is the reason I have been successful. Her vast knowlege and professionalism designed a plan so easy, that even I could succeed. Dr. Laura has a calm, caring nature, that made me feel instantly at ease. Not only have I improved my health, but I have been inspired to follow a healthy lifestyle and diet. I truely found a friend in Dr. Laura!



Up until I met Dr Laura, I had tried to quit smoking for about 25 years. I had tried the patch, hypnosis, acupuncture, retreats, numerous "quit smoking" programs, cold turkey, you name it, I've tried it. I had been off cigarettes for about 3 days and was in terrible shape. Very, very jittery, depressed, skin crawling and all the other symptoms of withdrawal, that I was considering to take up smoking again. I thought I'd give it one more shot and went to Dr. Laura to see if there was something I could take to help with all these horrible feelings. Dr. Laura ordered some natural remedies to help in my struggle to quit smoking, and I have been off cigarettes for a year and a half now. I'm not saying it was the easiest time of my life, but with the medicine, and the genuine compassion and caring and concern that Dr Laura has for people made the struggle successful. I just wish that everyone trying to quit a bad habit would go and talk to Dr. Laura.

With Love, Margaret
