Orchestrating an Amazing Symphony
— Optimal Health


partners in progressIn December, we introduced you to our special Partner in Progress, Sueson Vess of Special Eats. Sueson visited Laurus in February to present her Healing with Food seminar to approximately 17 Laurus employees and guests. And, Sueson treated us all to some tasty samplings of her nutrient-dense cooking. Joining Sueson that night was Dr. John Turner, our newest Partner in Progress, and one of the team of health care professionals and therapists who is helping our friends with disabilities.


Partner Profile

Dr. John D. Turner, DC, CCSP, DIBCN is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist who has run a successful private practice in Glendale Heights, IL for more than 25 years.


He has served on the medical staff at the World Gymnastics Championships and the United States and Big Ten Track and Field Championships, lectured at the National Athletic Trainers Association Annual Conference and served as nutrition consultant for the Chicago Sting Professional Soccer Team.


He currently serves as a Preceptor for the National University of Health Sciences, helping train graduating Doctors of Chiropractic in their clinical expertise in physical examinations, diagnosis, and adjusting skills.


Dr. Turner’s approach to practice as a Chiropractic Physician:


"The nervous system directs the activity of every system and cell in our body. It’s an amazing symphony of interaction that plays in the background without our conscious awareness, until something goes wrong. That ‘something’ can be in the form of a physical, biochemical, or even emotional trauma.


Dealing with the outward signs and symptoms is desirable but correcting the imbalances on a deeper level will yield more lasting results. As a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, I try to look at the underlying neuromusculoskeletal (nerve, muscle & bone) weaknesses using functional neurological testing and treatment.

Treatments may include spinal manipulation, nutritional counseling, the use of ‘Eye Lights’ to stimulate the central nervous system through the optic nerve, the use of a cold laser to up-regulate the nervous system with specific light frequencies or evaluation of the acupuncture system using a computer based system referred to as a Meridian Stress Assessment.


At the heart of any disease, illness or condition is an imbalance in the homeostasis of the body. The systems that regulate hormones, digestion, detoxification, and management of stress all need to be evaluated as part of a thorough examination.


Only then can appropriate follow-up tests be ordered and a course of action be outlined to help return a patient to optimal health. Correcting the underlying cause of a patient’s symptom is our primary concern.

Educating our patients about what they can do to optimize their health gives them both the tools and responsibility to do so."
