Depression, ADHD and academic problems
Our son has been following your diet recommendations for the past year, along with the supplements. We want to thank you.
As a result of your health plan, he is functioning incredibly well. His depression is completely gone, and he no longer needs the anti-depressant medications that he took for years. Also, his ADD is non-existent and his grades have improved dramatically. Also, he has passed several standardized tests this summer that would have been very challenging in the past, including the test to become a lifeguard and the Arizona state real estate exam, all with ease.
Thanks so much for your help. He is doing sooooo well and we are all looking forward to great success in college. ~RF
Two years ago when I first came to see Dr. Peters, I suffered almost daily from migraines. I managed to make it through each day by trying to ignore the pain in my head. Sometimes the pain was debilitating, and I had to spend a day in the dark.
I had tried every medicine on the market to try to control the migraines, but nothing worked. Add to the migraines severe colitis and I was a mess (not to mention always afraid the colitis would act up while I was out on a job).
He helped me balance my body through diet and supplements. Just as important, he helped me balance my mind and spirit through self-acknowledgement and forgiveness.
It has been a long road and I am not there yet, but my migraines number only 3 or 4 a month and my colitis is gone entirely. “Mind over matter” is not just a cliché. I am proof our thoughts and feelings are indelibly linked to our health. Accepting responsibility for my thoughts, health and actions has given me the power to control my own body and spirit – opening my soul to the omnipotence of a greater Spirit. ~CC
“Brain fog”, numbness and stomach pain
I began seeing Dr. Peters in October of 2008, due to an increasing number of health issues of which I was getting no relief from. The two primary issues were a feeling of my head being “in a fog” and numbness in my right leg and arm. I also felt at times like my stomach had a “meat grinder” in it and a rushing, pressure feeling in my chest.
My symptoms began approximately five years earlier. I had been to a neurologist for my head and received a complete neurological physical. The foggy head feeling was treated with 6 shots of lidocaine in my neck over 2 years. This didn’t help and was extremely painful.
I was also hospitalized twice for the numbness in my extremities and pressure in my chest. During these visits, I was given numerous tests to rule out stroke and heart complications. All tests were fine. I also went to a E.N.T. doctor and was diagnosed with G.E.R.D. He gave me over the counter medication and some lifestyle changes to counteract my symptoms.
None of these treatments helped, and for the first time in my life, I started to become depressed. Dr. Peters, after taking a extensive medical history, suspected gluten intolerance. I tested positive for gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease and changed my diet immediately.
In the last 9 months, my health has improved dramatically. It took awhile to fine tune my diet but it is worth it to have my health back. ~J M. D
In 2008, I had headaches constantly; eating pain pills like children eat candy. I also had miserable joint pain that moved from joint to joint, knees, shoulders, elbows, etc. I was also about 40 pounds overweight. I missed several days of work, even an entire week at one time due to how bad I felt. I was tired all the time. My “regular” doctors told me I had high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and, of course, wanted me to go on statins, which I resisted.
In early January 2009, I found a business card that a friend had given me of Dr. Ronald Peters. I called and talked with Dr. Peters for about 1/2 hour and decided to make an appointment. From that call forward, the experience was nothing short of unbelievable.
The first visit, we talked for about 1 and 1/2 hours, with Dr. Peters taking about 7-8 pages of copious notes. On the second visit, Dr. Peters himself took several vials of blood [normally I had experienced an 18-20 year old “assistant” taking my blood and I always bruised badly], but not this time. Also, a saliva test, a urine test, and two tests to do at home: stool and digestive analysis as well as a basal temperature test.
A week or so later, after the results were received, I learned that the reasons for my high blood pressure and high cholesterol was insulin resistance. I also had low thyroid and low testosterone. My digestive test revealed that I had gluten intolerance. Dr. Peters prescribed a change in my diet, along with an exercise program. He also recommended a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional supplements.
Over the next couple of months, and lasting to this day, I have lost 40 lbs of weight. My high blood is normal and my cholesterol is also down to optimal levels and I no longer have insulin resistance. I do not have any headaches and my joint pain is gone. My wife says I look like the man she married 32+ years ago, except for a loss of head hair. I have a very high energy level and 2009 was the best year of my life and 2010 looks even better. ~G. D.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder and tics
I would like to personally acknowledge and thank you for curing me from a life-long battle of obsessive-compulsiveness, high stress-related anxiety, facial “ticks” and weight-gain.
I am now 30 years old and have struggled with all of these issues for the past two decades. I had met with dozens of psychiatrists, psychologists, wellness and medical doctors over the years and had been prescribed an uncountable number of drugs to combat these issues my entire life.
The intensity of my issues began to affect even the most simple tasks of my life – breathing, talking with clients, watching T.V. Finally, after almost losing consciousness in front of my family from the extreme level of stress, breathing trouble and facial ticks, I contacted you in May of 2008.
After spending several days with your entire team, I am happy to report that all of my obsessive-compulsive behavior is gone, my stress-level is at the lowest it has ever been, my facial “ticks” have completely gone away, and I have lost over 25 pounds.
I can only say that the overall combination of natural healing provided by your program including supplements, hypnosis and acupuncture was the cause of this complete transformation. I have a new perspective of the typical medical system and a newfound appreciation and respect for what you refer to as our “bodymind.” I sincerely would not be the person that I am today without the support and care from you and your team. ~TMP
After 3 years of seeing medical doctors and specialists and being hospitalized, I finally found someone that could help me.
I had severe respiratory problems and kept getting sinus infections. First, they thought I had asthma, so two specialists tested me and they found that I did not, and then they thought it was heart problems, so off to the heart clinic I went.
They gave me all kinds of tests and then turned me over to a pulmonary specialist. The pulmonary specialist could not find out what was wrong and sent me to an allergist. The allergist said I was allergic to everything in the desert environment.
I had gotten lung infections and sinus infections for 3 years and all the doctors put me on were antibiotics, steroids and inhalers. I kept getting worse and worse until I could barely breathe. My blood pressure started to go sky high, so they put me on high blood pressure meds; they also wanted to put me on Lipitor. I would get up from bed and go to the bathroom and it would take me 15 to 20 minutes before I could catch my breath and head back to the bed, where it would take me another 15 to 20 minutes to regain my breathing.
At this point I decided I didn’t have anything to lose so I decided to look up alternative medicine and found Dr. Ron Peters. After checking his back ground and credentials I made an appointment and he promised me that if I followed his instructions that I would be as good as new. I followed the diet plan he gave me and took all the natural medicines.
He found out after doing several blood tests and other tests that my body was completely out of balance. He did tests that none of the other doctors thought of doing. After 1 and ½ weeks of following Dr. Peters instructions to a T, my sinus problems completely disappeared and to this day, have not returned. It has been 3 months.
Then after 3 weeks, my respiratory problems went away and my blood pressure returned to normal and I am now no longer on blood pressure medicine, plus I do not have to take statin drugs for my cholesterol. I have loads of energy (feel like superman). I feel like I have a second chance at life.
I have lost 40lbs. people tell me I look ten years younger and that my skin looks so healthy. I truly believe that Dr. Ron Peters has saved my life. If I had not found Dr. Peters I feel I would probably have passed away. The doctors where killing me with all the drugs they were giving me.
I highly recommend Dr. Peters to anyone who wants to be healthy. Just remember to be committed to following his instructions and you to will be well. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, Dr. Peters. ~Your patient, JS.
When I first met with Dr Peters, I was bedridden and in a wheel chair due to Lyme disease. I was 18 years old. Dr. Peters focused on returning my immune system to health, rather than concentrating on the “disease.”
One month after starting treatment, I was able to get out of bed and go to a movie with my family! My improvement was steady and I was able to begin college on time. I have now been a patient of Dr Peter’s for 18 months and have just finished a summer of exercise with a personal trainer, summer school, and working full time!
I attribute my recovery to Dr. Peters’ knowledge of the immune system and his focus on my overall health, as well as my physical and mental well being. I do not think I would be where I am today without his help. ~LC
When I met Dr. Ron Peters, I had suffered with endometriosis for 18 years; my periods and the cramps were unbearable and I was carried out of my office many times on a stretcher to the emergency room.
Western medicine would not address the problems that included a weak immune system, constant canker sores in my mouth, allergies, asthma, always getting the flu and colds and they would always turn into pneumonia and pleurisy. Plus, I had monthly bloating, gas and a continual array of sores on my thighs each month.
Western doctors gave me lots of pills and wanted to do a total hysterectomy since I was 30 years old. I had never been exposed to any other kind of medicine except for western. So I did surgeries but would not let them do a hysterectomy. They did put me on awful drugs like Lupron and testosterone.
Then I met Dr. Peters and have been seeing him for about 2 years, and he not only listened to my feelings and my life history but he cared and he approached my health in a way that was very spiritual. He addressed the immune system from the approach of yeast in the blood system and we changed my diet. We have worked very hard to bring down the mercury and lead levels that are toxic to the system. We also considered how I handle my emotions, childhood and family experiences and how much stress I have in my life.
Today, I have normal monthly periods, I rarely have any asthma or allergies, I have not had gas and bloating for over a year now. My immune system has really come a long way. I have gotten a cold like two times since I’ve been with Dr. Peters but I no longer consider treating it with antibiotics because I now understand that these medications can take down the immune system.
I did start doing yoga and worked on a lot of personal issues and made the dietary changes and take the supplements that Dr. P recommends and it has made an amazing difference.
Dr. Peters is truly a healer; he cares more about people than anyone I have ever met. He is very kind and gentle and has really made an impact on my life and my health. I am so glad to have found him, I would still be in Western medicine hell, trying to get someone to actually look at the causes not just mask the symptoms. ~JG
Chronix Acid Reflux (GERD)
I had experienced terrible heartburn for years and for years, I had visited many different doctors and had multiple tests performed, including scopes, barium x-rays, scans, etc.
One doctor determined that my problem must be h. pylori and put me a multi-day treatment of very heavy antibiotic, which had all the terrible results on my stomach and bowls, but did absolutely nothing for my heart burn and acid reflux. The acid reflux was so bad that I could not sleep many nights and would awaken unable to lay down again and have to try sleeping sitting in a chair. I would eat several rolls of Rolaids every day and also take 150mg tablet of Zantacs once in the AM and once again before going to bed.
In discussion with Dr. Peters, this subject came up and he gave me a diet to follow and handed me a bottle of enzymes and a second bottle of stomach acid bill. He told me to take these after meals. This completely cured the problem after taking the enzymes for about 7 -10 days. I do not need it on a regular basis. Now I only take if when I have a heavy meal or on the rare occasion of heartburn, a problem I thought would be with me the rest of my life has been removed by the treatment provided by Dr Peters.
I have passed this information along to several friends and they have reported results similar to mine, it really is an amazing thing. ~JM
Chronic Skin Disorder – Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris
Last year, I was stricken with an aggressive skin disorder that disabled both the use of my hands and feet as well causing extreme discomfort throughout the surface of my body. After several dermatological and immunological examinations, the National Institute of Health (NIH) agreed to convene grand rounds to determine a diagnosis and treatment. Examinations and biopsies revealed that I was suffering from a rare skin disease called Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris.
The best known treatment for this disease is one of two very strong drugs: Methotraxate or Soriatane. My own research of this disease and these treatment plans informed me of the side affects of these drugs and also their inconsistent curative effects. Also, I was skeptical that both drugs exclusively targeted the symptoms without addressing the source of such extreme toxicity.
Seven months into the disease, before consenting to a drug treatment plan, I contacted Dr. Ron Peters, with the hope of a receiving a more comprehensive and less toxic approach to medical treatment. From the start, Dr. Peters was thorough, comprehensive, communicative and kind. In a skillful and systematic way, Dr. Peters detected physiological imbalances, weaknesses and toxicity. Over several months, he has diligently and successfully worked towards strengthening my immune system while detoxifying my body.
I have keenly felt and known that my decision to enlist the expertise of Dr. Peters was the right choice. He has remarkably cured the affliction of an aggressive skin disorder while also improving my overall health. Through this challenging yet rich experience, I have come to believe, that disease is indeed an invitation to scope deeper toward better health and well being.
I feel blessed that Dr. Peters has guided me through this process. ~BGL
Over the past 40 years my health status decreased while the number of physicians increased. Something is very wrong with this picture. With the number of specialists that I see, I should be the healthiest person on this planet.
When I was 28 years old, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and placed on anti-inflammatory drugs along with steroids which landed me in the hospital with bleeding ulcers and acute kidney failure. The G. I. doctor also diagnosed reflux and the kidney doctor treated me for chronic kidney failure and high blood pressure. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease after multiple tick bites and the communicable disease doctor treated me three different times with long tern IV antibiotics. The pulmonologist treated the asthma, endocrinologist treated thyroid nodules and hormone imbalance, the orthopedic surgeon treated the osteoarthritis of both knees with cortisone injections, and the rheumatologist treated the arthritis with a chemo drug methotrexate, along with daily doses of prednisone and prescription pain medication.
Along with being in constant pain, I had no energy and spent most of my day sleeping on the couch. My body was so toxic from all the medication that it was impossible to function. After seeing Dr. Peters for 2 months I am pain free for the first time in 40 years. I am off all medications with the exception of thyroid and a small dose of blood pressure medication which I intend to eliminate soon.
Doctor Peters is truly a gift to all his patients and because of him I have a new life. Thank you Doctor Peters!~ K.Kitz, RN
