Dr. Robert Slusarski
Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Robert Slusarski I'm a licensed chiropractor here in Angola, Indiana. I'm proud to say I'm looking forward to continuing to provide several more decades of unique health care to our community and surrounding areas. First let me tell you some of my past experiences before I started Tri State Nutritional Healing Center. When I first started chiropractic college at Life University in Marietta, Ga. I was shocked by how many different adjusting techniques there are, some more scientific than others. At the end of my first quarter I almost quit because I didn’t like any of the technique's being taught in the curriculum at the time.
A friend told me about Chiropractic Biophysics or C.B.P. a structural /scientific approach, that applies biomechanics and physics to the human frame. I attended a CBP seminar and was amazed to learn how your spinal cord stretches if you have a reverse curve in the neck ,or how you can decrease your ability to fill your lungs with air with a loss of curve In the low back. Also, I learned that there are different reflexes in the body like gallbladder dysfunction/pain may make your right shoulder hurt, a heart attack might give you jaw pain or numbness into the arm. There are several different reflexes like organ to organ and organ to muscles reflexes. This help me tie together the whole structural spinal model into the chiropractic philosophy of pinched nerved and organ dysfunction.
That sparked my interest in neurology, where I soon heard about the Carrick Institute of Neurology and saw their P.B.S special “Waking up the Brain”. I attended several Carrick Neurology seminars before graduating with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Then my wife and I moved to south Carolina and opened our first office. Once our daughter was born we decided to move back home closer to family, where I opened Tri State Nutritional Healing Center. And I will continue my life long education in helping to get sick people well!
The sad truth is our health care crisis is not going to be solved in Washington. It is going to be solved in our community through education, awareness, and people making lifestyle changes. My staff and I work very hard in our community to provide our residents the tools they need to take back control of their family’s health and well being. As I dove down the rabbit hole for myself I was shocked and saddened to learn just how messed up our current situation was and still is. Several years ago I read Death by Medicine written by Gary Null PhD, a well written review of the Medical peer-reviewed journals, and government health statistics show that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. That must be the reason the world health organization stated that the U.S. health system spends a higher portion of its gross domestic products than any other country, but ranks 37 out of 191 countries according to its performance.
Dr. Richard Besser of the CDC in 2003 said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually was tens of millions, unnecessary medical and surgical procedures was 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization is 8.9 million. Even our food supply has been turned into a weird toxic science experiments with all kinds of chemicals you can’t pronounce. If you are what you eat then why are we being genetically altered(ha ha)! Not to mention the ridiculous amount of chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis . According to The Body Toxic book by Nena Baker in 2008 the amount of chemical toxins, dyes/coloring produced or imported by the U.S in one day would fill up 623,000 tanker trucks holding 8,000 gallons each. Makes you wonder who is not looking out for us oh yeah must be the same people who allowed pink goo into your food to feed your kids! I've noticed that educated patients who fully understand their problem get better results. So we offer a variety of resources that inform without being pushy.
My Purpose is to create an army of fully educated people willing to take full responsibility for their current health condition, working together to establish a true health care system that actually works and frees us and our future generations from the harmful and destructive practices of the current medico/pharmaceutical model.

My all around health is better in a short amount of time.

I have been able to watch my diet more carefully, eat better and healthier, and have become aware of "bad foods". I have lost 12 pounds since I started, and my indigestion concerns are much improved.

I suffer from Crohn's Disease, and now my cholesterol vs. triglycerides have been reversed, I have the ability to eat salads without the fear of doubling over or spending hours in discomfort, and I realized I was eating too many carbs vs. protein.
My hot flashes have been taken care of; I have lost weight, which I did not even come for. The very painful Bursitis in my shoulder has also been taken care of. Most of the pain I have suffered in the past has been resolved.

I was tired, I ached all over, and carried extra pounds. After two months, my energy has increased, I am losing weight and my overall outlook on myself has improved, and my stamina is much better than it was in the beginning.
- Sharon M.
I am beginning to look at food in a different light. Rather than as a solution to problems, I see it as a means to becoming healthy as I get older/ I am learning slowly to make wiser food choices and in doing so learning to hear and feel how my body reacts to what I ingest. I also like the one-on-one approach with someone whom I feel cares… I do not feel fatigued or generally depressed anymore.
- Judith S.
I am more aware of the lack of nutrition I have been eating, and getting me back on track with wholesome food and how satisfied you feel when you eat that way. they have also helped to change my mind set on fats, something I always watched.
I have noticed a positive change in my stomach problems, including less gas, I feel better, and I am no longer on my Acid Reflux medications.
- Karen M.
When I first came here I was very tired, my stomach used to bloat out so far I looked like I was about 5 or 6 month pregnant. I was just very unhappy with how I looked and felt. Now, although I only lost 8lbs, all my pants have gotten very baggy on me and I am now back in my skinny clothes. My stomach isn’t bloated anymore, even my fingers don’t swell as much. I have more energy and my stress level has gone down a lot. I realize I have more to go but I know at this rate I will have no problem getting there thanks to the people at the Nutritional Healing Center and their knowledge of the body, finding what’s wrong and knowing what it will take to fix it.
- Sharon H.
For several years, I felt extremely tired all the time. I had no motivation or stamina to get things done. Sometimes, I would be so tired, I couldn’t focus or concentrate on anything. I also had problems with a sour stomach and gassy bowels. The Nutritional Healing Center changed all of that. It has been an eye opening experience for me. I learned how much my diet, and how the right supplements, could change my problems.
Now, I have more energy and stamina than ever and my stomach and bowels feel better too. Most of all, the friendly staff are dedicated and have the knowledge to get you under way to a life changing experience.
- Robin T.
