Here's what some of our patients are saying.....

I was experiencing severe headaches and back pain that brought me into Ozark Wellness Practice. I learned that it all started with my feet. Although I felt like I was standing straight, my x-rays showed how crooked I was from my hips to my shoulders. I have since bought more supportive shoes, and started wearing custom orthotics. My back pain is decreasing. Also, my headaches are less frequent and less severe.

I had been sick in one way or another for most of my life. However, the source of my illness remained a mystery until twenty years ago when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease similar to rheumatoid arthritis. They put me on heavy anti-inflammatory medicine, Prednisone, and other medicines, totaling 8-10 different prescriptions every day. After several years, I was so frustrated with the lack of results, that I sought more medical help. To make a long story short, I was told that I had to live with this disease! I continued to struggle with fatigue and weight gain, and had to push myself through each day. I tried many different things that were supposed to help, like wearing magnets in my shoes, drinking different drinks, taking herbs, etc., but none of them worked!

Through a business contact, I learned about Ozark Wellness Practice and found out what they do. I decided that, since I’d tried everything else, I had nothing to lose, and made the commitment to start treatment. Dr. Tim Rhoads had me begin with juicing, then I started to take the nutrients that my body needed. After my health improved some, I began to get chiropractic adjustments.

The result: I’ve been prescription drug free for over a year! I feel so much better than I have felt in a very long time, and I am excited about continuing my journey to wellness! Making the decision to live a wellness lifestyle has changed my life. In fact, many people who haven’t seen me for a while comment that I look like a completely different person! Thanks, Ozark Wellness Practice!

"I have had pelvic and lower back problems for several years now. I've tried several doctors including chiropractic physicians. Sleeping problems have been extensive also. None of the practitioners have been successful until Dr Tim Rhoads. His nutritional, adjustments, and kinetic techniques were not only different than I was to, but most important they work!

I was able to get off two prescription drugs which have bad side effects I didn't need. I have resolved of my high blood pressure issues and feel much better. I am now enjoying better sleep for longer periods.

After five years plus of serious back problems I believe I have now turned the corner and I am on my way to long-term relief in this area. This guys a "real doctor". Thanks Dr Tim!" ~ Jerry

"I came to Dr. Rhoads with almost constant neck pain. It varied in intensity but was very consistently present. After a month of treatment, I've had my first week of no neck pain at all and it has been wonderful!"~ Lindsay

After years of playing sports and not really taking care of my aches and pains, I was approaching 60 with aching and painful joints and decreasing mobility. I decided I needed to become proactive and seek a more holistic approach to address my challenges. I visited Ozark Wellness, and within a month I have noticed improvements in joint pain,mobility, and overall good feeling. With each visit, I notice distinct and definite changes. Dr. Tim's approach has unquestionably helped me and I would recommend a visit by anyone with any type of joint pain!

I first came to Ozark Wellness Practice about sixteen months ago. I had been having soreness in my lower back, leftover from a 2009 surgery. I was also experiencing problems with my shoulder that kept me from playing softball - a sport I had played (and loved) for thirty years! Since I had started running just a few months earlier, I was aware that without proper nutritional support, my newest sport venture could easily be derailed as well.

As a scientist, it is my job to be skeptical, and to thoroughly research options before diving into treatments. That is why I was willing to listen when Angie and Dr. Tim explained to me how Ozark Wellness could help me. I thought, "What do I have to lose? Pain? Weight? Yes, please!"

Since starting treatment at Ozark Wellness Practice, I never have pain in my lower back anymore! My shoulder issues have greatly improved, and I sleep better. On top of that, my digestion has improved and I actually maintain lower levels of stress than before! One huge benefit of the care I've received at Ozark Wellness Practice is that my running has greatly improved. I ran six half marathons in 2014, and my goal for 2015 is to do a triathlon!

Changes take time and require small, steady steps. Every day poses a new challenge, but the more knowledge you have, the better you can tackle each challenge. Ozark Wellness Practice has given me the tools to tackle my challenges and reach my goals. Custom orthotics have led to better running form and posture. Targeted nutritional supplements have helped me to kick-start my diet and avoid illness. Weekly chiropractic adjustments have helped me to recover more quickly and to avoid injuries.

Whether you are an athlete seeking peak performance, or simply someone who wants to feel better (and seriously, who doesn't?), you should give Ozark Wellness Practice a call! The decision is up to you ... why don't you make the most of the one body you have?

I started seeing Dr. Tim Rhoads in July, 2013. Honestly, in the beginning, I was a bit skeptical about this whole "wellness" thing. But after being on the nutritional protocol prescribed by Dr. Rhoads and the weekly chiropractic adjustments, I am a believer! As a result of my wellness journey, I no longer take any prescription medication. I've learned the art of "eating clean" and believe me, it works! Wellness is possible!

Recently, I came into Ozark Wellness Practice with severe pain on the lower left side. I thought, at first, that it was the onset of a bladder infection, but Dr. Rhoads determined it was a twisted muscle, not an infection. He performed an adjustment and a day later I already felt less pain. I had no pain the following day! Thanks, Ozark Wellness Practice!

I was having lower back problems and decided to see if there was something I could do about it. Ozark Wellness Practice not only helped the situation with my back but also taught me to eat healthier. I cut out carbs from lunch and in just 10 days, I dropped 10 pounds. I feel more energy in the afternoons than I have before.

I am AMAZED! I had been taking Prilosec for about 7 years for some significant reflux. I started to wonder how long I would have to take the medicine and my doctor indicated that it would be needed for the rest of my life. Since they didn’t know how to correct the issue, they could only make it tolerable.

I mentioned this to Dr. Tim Rhoads a couple of weeks ago and he immediately knew what I needed to do. So I read the book he suggested and started following his directions on food combining. I had never heard of this before but I am here to bear witness to the fact that this way of eating has totally cleared up my reflux issue. I no longer take any (that's correct, ZERO) Prilosec and I feel great!! I don’t even need TUM’s anymore!

A beautiful by-product is that eating in this fashion is also helping me lose weight! What a well kept secret that everyone should know – food combining- who would have guessed it!!


I initially came to see Dr. Tim Rhoads in May of this year with severe lower back pain. I have been dealing with this off and on since I was a teenager. I just came to the conclusion that my back was always going to hurt.

Dr. Tim explained to me that this wasn’t the case at all. He did a complete evaluation on me and asked me to make a commitment to my wellness. What a scary decision this was for me because I knew this would require me to break some very old habits, but I am so happy that I did.

Since May my body has gotten so much better. My back doesn’t hurt anymore, my energy level is up and I continue to get better every day. Along with my back, Dr. Tim explained to me how to take care of my body from the inside out. I have learned so much about my overall wellness - everything from juicing, to nutrition, to the food and wellness classes they offer every month. Everyone at Ozark Wellness has been so supportive and are always there to answer any questions I may have. I now realize that I am important enough to make a commitment to my health because I deserve to be healthy. We only get one body and thankfully, Ozark Wellness has taught me to take care of mine.

My Wellness Story……Shared by Mom, Misty Monterroza

Kai had been suffering migraine headaches since he was seven years old. He had been to several doctors with no relief and over time they were becoming worse. Kai wasn’t able to participate in sports as they seemed to produce severe headaches followed by vomiting and extreme exhaustion. Kai’s headaches became so bad that he was having them sometimes twice weekly with vomiting & extreme sensitivity to light and noise.

We were at a loss until meeting Dr. Tim Rhoads. Since Kai began treatment at Ozark Wellness Practice in November of 2013, he has only suffered from two migraines. Kai has taken the initiative to follow Dr. Rhoads' suggestions by changing his diet and focusing on a healthier lifestyle.

We are so thankful for Dr. Rhoads and the staff who have been so helpful in guiding us to a healthier Kai! He is now able to play sports and enjoy all the things kids his age should be enjoying.

-Kai (with Misty) Monterroza-

I came to Ozark Wellness Practice to see Dr. Tim Rhoads because I was having uncontrollable headaches. Little did I know that was the least of my problems! Dr. Rhoads opened up a whole new meaning to living and l learned so much about myself and my body.

Before Dr. Rhoads, I was on prescription medication and going to different doctors for my headaches. It was very frustrating, not having answers. Between dealing with a dysfunctional gallbladder, weight gain and headaches, I wasn’t living…I was miserable.

Dr. Rhoads has helped me so much. After getting custom orthotics, chiropractic adjustments, and clinical nutrition, I feel like a whole new person.

Eric’s Story (by Don & Pam)

Our story goes all the way back to when Eric was an infant. He had severe constipation and was given prescription medicine on and off over the years. In his early elementary school days he was diagnosed with ADD and put on prescription medication for that as well. The problem with the ADD medicine was that it suppressed his appetite - and that made him not want to eat. As a result, he was below his normal weight range. The medication also added to his constipation problems and stomach issues. He also developed nose bleeds and restless sleeping. We felt that, in general, prescription drugs were being used way too much for things that could be handled naturally.

Since coming to Dr. Tim Rhoads we have taken Eric off all prescription drugs* and opted for natural vitamins and minerals. Eric has gained about 10 pounds and digests his food so much better. He sleeps better as well and his nose bleeds have stopped. He seems to be able to focus on school work and tasks at hand.

We are so pleased with Eric’s progress so far and would highly recommend this approach to others. He does receive regular chiropractic adjustments as well as inserts for his shoes and we’re sure that all of this is working to his benefit!

*Please note that Dr. Rhoads rarely asks patients to stop using prescribed drug medications. In many cases, however, patients choose to stop prescription medications because they find the natural, holistic treatments to be more effective, without the negative side effects.
