Who we are
Health and Wellness Solutions’ founder, Edward Mikrut, has devoted years to learning and understanding the language spoken by the body. Using highly sophisticated equipment and specialized training, he can discern what your body is eager to reveal.
Edward is not a physician and the relationship between him and his clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information he presents. Holistic remedies do not "treat" illnesses; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. In order to be treated or diagnosed, he believes that the advice of a holistic physician is in order.
The “who” of Health and Wellness Solutions is Edward Mikrut, whose own journey to wellness ultimately inspired him to work in the field of alternative health. He is an author, Wellness Consultant, Nutritional Counselor, Dietary Advisor and Health Assessment Technology Consultant. Edwards's earliest memories include repeated visits to Chicago-area doctors and specialists at the University of Illinois Medical Center, where he received treatments for a standing and walking condition as a child. His condition did not significantly improve after years of treatments and specialized footwear (including awkward and uncomfortable devices which may have even complicated his condition).
Finding the relief of a permanent solution . . . after years of searching
The seeds of Ed’s interest in non-mainstream medicine were planted at 11 years of age, when he began undergoing a series of treatments with a retired chiropractor, Dr. E.E. Mechelke, recommended by a family friend. Within roughly a year’s time, he was experiencing complete freedom from his physical ailment, and was given the gift of a normal adolescence.
Dr. Mechelke’s relaxed home-office environment and personal, compassionate style had a lasting effect on Edward, inspiring his approach to pursuing and maintaining wellness and eventually influencing his own person-centered approach as a proponent of alternative health practices. In high school and college, he regularly visited another chiropractor- Dr. Whalen George who recognized Edward's interest in his work and mentored him, further reinforcing his convictions about alternatives to mainstream medicine.
Education, Training and Internships:
Besides his natural giftings as a teacher and his interest in life-long learning, Edward, has a Bachelors’ degree from Auburn University in Education and Master’s training as a counselor.

Additionally, he has completed numerous internships with Steve Fountaine at First Opinion Health and Wellness Center in Provo, Utah.
