Jim Ehmke, CN & Health Detective
Jim Ehmke is a one of a kind nutritionist. I’ve known Jim since 1995, and consider him to be not only an exceptionally capable and compassionate health detective, but a truly gifted and inspiring teacher. Like no one else, he’s able to root out the true cause of difficult symptoms and at the same time expand one’s understanding of the human body and its incredible resiliency and innate repair capabilities. It’s because of Jim that I chose the career path of nutritionist myself. It’s also because of Jim that I sought and found answers to chronic functional issues, ultimately allowing me to realize a quality of life I didn’t know was possible for me. I’ve witnessed the same type of transformation under Jim’s guidance in countless others as well.
Jim Ehmke had a profoundly positive effect on me, thankfully early on in my own clinical practice. In fact, I was lucky enough to by mentored by him, and he was kind enough to pass on to me the decades of clinical experience he accumulated in his clinical practice. I apply that information to this day. Jim was and is known for getting results, and for leaving no stone unturned in the attempt to find and address the cause of health issues. He is the most gifted “health detective” I have ever known. I couldn’t have been in a better place at a better time when I met him, and I continue to apply, clinically, the depth of information I learned. I am forever grateful for his guidance. Thanks Jim!
“My fast is coming along just GREAT!!! It is absolutely the most amazing experience ever. I am totally addicted to raw milk. I would bathe in it like Cleopatra (if it wasn’t so expensive!!). My skin is softer, my IBS symptoms seem to be less and less each day, no TMA thus far! Bless you for giving me the confidence and the knowledge to do this! It’s awesome!!!!!”
I first consulted Jim in the mid-eighties and have valued his advice ever since. He has the last word on any treatments suggested for me by medical doctors. He has saved me from some of their bad advice such as their insistence that I take Fosamax for osteopenia. Every member of my family has benefited from his help. For example, when my husband was bent over in pain for weeks despite a visit to the ER, physical therapy, and megadoses of painkillers, Jim suggested magnesium and B6. In a hour or two, the pain was gone! Jim was very helpful to my daughter when she suffered from Crohn’s disease. More recently when I switched to a doctor who evaluated my nutritional status–surprise, surprise!–no deficiencies! Thanks, Jim!
My primary care doctor runs all kinds of tests, then glosses over the results. I depend on Jim to analyze the whole picture and explain the information so I can understand. Jim’s recommendations are awesome.
As a health care professional, I find Jim’s knowledge and advice to surpass anyone I have ever met in the field. I absolutely trust Jim’s advice!
I have found Jim Ehmke to be exceptionally knowledgeable, thorough, and effective throughout the nearly ten years we’ve worked together. He regularly discovers solutions for many hard to treat conditions that have gone unresolved despite numerous attempts by other health care practitioners. Consistently kind and patient, Jim has an excellent over-the-phone presence. He is by far the most informed and progressive nutritional consultant I have ever known! Many people’s most challenging health issues have been resolved as a result of Jim’s impressive expertise.
It’s amazing where desperation leads you…it was in the midst of a life altering accident that I was introduced to Jim Ehmke. At the end of the road with conventional medical treatment, facing amputation and conceding to an uncelebrated future I only then prescribed to Jim’s insight and instruction.
Several years ago I was in a critical motorcycle accident and suffered a ghastly compound fracture of the tibia and fibula. Multiple ineffective bone graft surgeries left me resolved to the doctors final diagnosis that my bone(s) would never grow or fuse with treatment due to the aggressive nature of the break(s). They had exhausted treatment options which left me a candidate for below the knee amputation.
Grasping that traditional medicine would not be able to provide what I believed was an acceptable result I broadened my narrow process of thinking, put my ego aside and opened myself to alternative solutions. It was at this time that I met Jim. The conversation not only rendered me a professional evaluation with a personalized strategic regimen of natural supplements but was also all together enlightening. Jim’s knowledge was not only unwavering but his confidence was addictive and manifested an attitude of hope.
One month into Jim’s plan I entered my orthopedic surgeons clinic to discuss my next course of therapy. The standard pre-visit X-rays were taken and as I entered the examination room I was instructed to make a not so standard visit to the surgeons office. As I entered, anticipating the worst, noticing my X-rays on the computer monitor, he asked if I noticed anything different in the most recent images. Before I could answer he proclaimed “there are signs of healing”…”your bone is growing” and with this I began the road to recovery. Jim’s treatment had yielded what months of conventional medicine had not, growth.
Today I can say that I’m 100% healed because of Jim’s effective approach and unsurpassed knowledge and commitment. Jim Ehmke was truly my first step.
I love working with Jim Ehmke! Jim was recommended to me by a friend when I’d told him about a potentially life threatening blood test result I’d received. Doctors told me there was nothing I could do, that it was ‘like a sword hanging over my head’ . . . no treatment plan, just blood test after blood test waiting for it to go up and over so they could start to treat me. Not a very hopefully situation. . . my friend said you should call Jim. An hour on the phone with Jim, and I had hope again! Lots of e-mails, lots of changes, lots of things to do. . . now 12 years later, that number has remained stable and even gone down! And the rest of my blood work and health has improved! Jim has become a close friend and confidant! Jim not only cares about me and my blood work, but also just about me. I’ve never spoken with a more wiser person when it comes to understanding my health. Never has anyone explained to me how it works and what I need to do in order to improve. Honest, caring, forthright, committed, thoughtful and a listener to boot. At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I believe our paths divinely crossed and that God has used him to sustain and my life. And at the risk of sounding a sappy. . . I love the guy! What a blessing he has been and continues to be!
After years of being misdiagnosed at several hospitals and experiencing less than satisfying occurrences with medical doctors; I began working with Jim Ehmke in 1987. With his wise health expertise, I began following a health regime which has brought my health under control with much vitality. Together we have reinforced my poor health of prior years of chronic fatigue, allergies, respiratory weaknesses, high blood pressure, uterine and ovary problems and avoided tons of illnesses and surgery procedures became unnecessary over the years…BECAUSE we worked to improve my immune system and state of health…with his knowledgeable consultations…we have achieved my body’s improved state of health. Thank you to Jim Ehmke!
I would like to share an experience that I had with the VIT-RA-TOX No. 43 oil base salve that Jim Ehmke recommended I use.
I’ve known about this product for over 30 years now and not until this last summer did I realize how amazing it is.
Formally from Wisconsin where things are pretty nice and humid, I’m currently living in Colorado where it is very dry and arid. I work outdoors most of the time and was finding my hands becoming very dry and having some major painful cracking of skin episodes. One night in wondering what to do with my discomfort, I put the 43 salve on the open cracked area on my four finger and put a bandage on and went to bed. The next morning I was amazed at the relief of discomfort that happened over night. I reapplied the 43 salve for the next three days 2xs a day and found the area almost completely healed in that short time, totally pleased with this product!
I have to say to anyone who has any issues with dry and cracking hands, this 43 salve is a must to keep in your helpful healing cabinet.
It is with pleasure that I can speak of the many virtues Jim Ehmke possess as a practitioner of holistic medicine. I’ve known Jim as a patient for over twenty years and continue to consult his expertise over a wide variety of health issues. I’ve also recommend him to countless others over the years. I do so because, I know of no other practitioner who has such a vast knowledge base of both conventional and alternative medicine. His open mindedness and drive to learn the latest ideas in medicine is like nothing I’ve ever seen in anyone else. Being a student of many forms of medicine myself, I’ve watched him treat and improve many difficult cases. On a more personal note, what has always impressed about Jim is his sincere desire to understand the spiritual aspect of life, both his own and that of his patients – which is such a neglected component of health and sorely missing in conventional medicine. As a seeker of health, I found in Jim a genuine kindness, an ease of relationship, a respect for the fact that my life my own responsibility and that I was the one in charge of my health. I highly recommend Jim even if you’ve tried these kinds of therapies before.
A few years ago I was surprised by an emergency surgery with a subsequent diagnosis of Stage III-d colon cancer. I thank God for Jim’s help, which played a major role in my recovery. Jim was with me every step of the way, reviewing my clinical tests, oncologist analysis’, and doctor recommendations. Jim worked with me on an intensive supplementation program and diet regimen. And, he continues to review my progress and suggest adjustments to my protocols. Jim’s caring enthusiasm and cogent analysis are things for which I am truly thankful.
