Circle of Life Caregiver Cooperative
Presenting: Tim Buckley, M.D
Dr. Buckley will be discussing medication issues. Much has changed in medication usage and how docs relate (or don’t) with patients, so it is more important than ever for patients and their advocates/caregivers to understand the role and risks of meds—especially in the elderly.

Jim Ehmke, Clinical Nutritionist
and “Health Detective”
“Taking Control of your Health”
Jim Ehmke, CN, is a licensed clinical nutritionist and health counselor who has been practicing clinical nutrition and diverse natural therapies for over 40 years. Along with his wife, Karen Walker Ehmke, MS, RD, the Ehmke’s founded Complete Health Services in 1976 establishing the first integrative health practice in Wisconsin. Over decades the clinic grew exponentially and employed several nutritionists, an MD, DO, herbalist, microscopist, massage therapist and biofeedback practitioner. Because so many of his clients have challenging health conditions that have not responded to conventional therapy, his “health detective” practice expanded to include a wide range of investigative work. In addition to the use of innovative blood tests & urinalysis, he uses a broad range of investigative tests including the Elisa allergy test, hair analysis, saliva & urinary hormones and comprehensive stool analysis. Due to need his practice has led to an ever expanding toolbox of innovative nutritional therapies, herbology and homeopathy. Some of the areas Jim specializes in include, but are not limited to: thyroid health, gut health, adrenal function, allergies, immune & autoimmune support, brain & neurological health, cardiovascular support, weight loss, eating disorders and alternative cancer support & prevention.
