Dr. Jason Strotheide
We would like to share the story on the "birth" of ChiroNutraceutical... As many of you know, I used to travel and teach continuing education to doctors across the country. As time progressed, it got to the point where I was on the road 25-30 weekends per year, in addition to treating patients. As you can imagine, this took its toll on my family. In order to preserve my marriage, I stopped traveling and speaking. Over the course of 3 years, I never stopped missing helping doctors help more people. After all, it helped me fulfill my purpose. If I could help doctors, then by default, I was helping their patients.
This is when I turned to God for help. After spending time in prayer and meditation for over 2 years, the entire idea for ChiroNutraceutical was "downloaded" to me in less than 3 seconds while driving home from a day of treating patients.
I remember walking through the door from my garage and being met by my wife who said "How was your day?" My reply was: "I had the coolest thing happen on my way home and by the way, we're starting a new company!" I honestly think she just about fainted. After telling her my experience, she asked me if I was sure it was God, to which I said that it was. She then said we had better get to work. She asked who would be helping me with this new company and I answered "Frank". She then asked if I had talked to him. My answer was "No". She asked how I knew he would help. I told her that he was part of the plan that had been downloaded on me. Now you have to understand that I had not spoken with Frank in over 4 years, so I pulled out my cell phone and dialed the only number I had for him and he answered. After a few minutes of "catching up", I told him that this would probably be the strangest phone call he would ever receive and proceeded to tell him the story and how his name was part of the "plan". I told him that this was going to be a debt-free company from the start so I didn't have any money to pay him and that I would understand if he said "no". Here's what he said... "I have 3 questions. 1) "Will we always do the right thing, no matter what? 2) "Will we only do business with people who want to do business with us (no hard sales)? 3) When things are going good will we always give the glory to God?" The answers to all 3 questions were "Yes". When I told him that he could think it over for a few days and let me know, he said "I don't need to think about. I'm in!"
In the last 4 years ChiroNutraceutical has helped over 25,000 people, in the US alone, become healthier by gaining control of their weight, qualified for "The Top 100 Companies" in Chiropractic, have expanded our product line to include multiple health promoting supplements, has expanded and received certification to ship and sell our products internationally, received our own unique FDA registration number, and as a result, have literally helped change the lives of tens of thousands of people around the world!
As Frank and I look back over the last 4 years all that we can think is how God has truly blessed our lives, our families, and our company! We are living a supernatural God-led experience. There is no other explanation!
Thank you to each and every one of you, whether a doctor or a patient, who have helped us fulfill our purpose! We are eternally grateful! All of that said, our hearts go out to each and every one of you for helping us fulfill our purpose!
