"My life before Dr Krukowski  which I lovingly refer to as Dr K  -  was  a nightmare! 
My life now is so peaceful knowing that I don’t have to face medical challenges alone.
I have always felt that Dr. Krukowski  sincerely puts my  "real health" as a top priority  -  just like a sister would. 
I would  -  and do  -  recommend her highly to anyone who wants to try and let their body heal naturally."

"Before Dr. Krukowski my body was inflamed and ached, I was constantly tired with low energy, my joints ached and I had brain fog. I was waking up in the middle of the night and was not able to go back to sleep. I had a dry cotton mouth with acid reflux.I now know what caused all of my problems and Dr. Krukowski has taken appropriate action for my good health. I am a new person!"
-Terry M.

"My life prior to Dr. K was spending 14 grueling years going to multiple medical doctors. I was getting ready to file for disability. I initially had reservations as I'm quite skeptical by nature, I grew up with medical doctors in my family. However, when she was able to successfully and safely treat everything that no other doctor could in a fraction of the time, I haven't looked back since. She unmasks and heals the root issues so you can live and love your life."
