Jim Ehmke, Clinical Nutritionist

Jim Ehmke, CN, is a licensed clinical nutritionist and health counselor.
Karen Walker Ehmke, MS, RD, has a master's degree in nutrition sciences and is also a registered dietician.
Jim and Karen Ehmke (pronounced: Em-key) founded Complete Health Services in 1976 and began the practice of clinical nutrition along with natural and alternative health modalities. Complete Health Services was the first alternative health clinic in the Milwaukee metropolitan area and grew into a full-fledged integrated alternative medical clinic.  The addition of MD’s and DO’s to the staff allowed Complete Health Services to expand into investigative clinical testing with the addition of chelation therapy and injectable nutrient therapy.   
“Whatever the condition, there has to be a reason why and a means of addressing it. My attitude is to leave no stone unturned and to provide clients with a total effort to help them improve their health.  I encourage proactive and preventative approaches along with a team effort.  We all need to open our hearts and minds and let go of a limited perspective about healing and wellness.  Empowering yourself through attitude, prayer, mediation, knowledge, lifestyle and perseverance will always express itself in some positive way.”
Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s the Ehmke’s traveled and studied extensively.  This included:
  • Training and certification with Dr. Wm. Donald Kelley (One Answer to Cancer), Iridology with Dr. Bernard Jensen
  • Blood chemistry with Dr. Brockman / Dr. Richard Murray / Dr. Jamieson
  • Hair analysis training with Dr. Eck / Dr. Watts / Bob Smith
  • Amino acid therapy training with Dr. Pangborn / Dr. Erdmann
  • Nutrient therapy with Dr. Jeffery Bland / Dr. Jonathan Wright / Dr. Gaby / Dr. Marx and numerous others
  • Saliva pH therapy with Dr. Reams
  • Bio-identical hormone therapy with Dr’s Wright / Rami / Kamal / Elias 
  • Kinesiology (muscle testing) with Dr. Versendaal / Dr. Caputo and Dr. Ulan.
“All in all it was a wonderful time to study with excellent teachers and apply their systems to our clinical work at Complete Health.  The results were superb and the clinic was an exciting place as it rode the wave of public interest in alternative therapy.”  
Karen and Jim Ehmke also taught nutrition and cooking classes for 20 years and did countless lectures and speaking tours in the US, Canada and England.
In 2000 the Ehmke’s sold Complete Health Services to the outstanding clinicians working there and moved to Hawaii, where they continued to provide consultations by phone, email and fax.  They continued to use the same testing services, investigative skills and therapies to help their clients.  
In 2008 the Ehmke’s moved to Bellingham, WA, where they are in the process of establishing a local practice – Your Golden Health –  and they continue to treat clients by phone, email and fax.

More About Jim Ehmke, CN:
At the age of 22 Jim’s interest in the natural health field began when he met nutrition and health pioneer V. E. Irons in 1972.  At the time Mr. Irons was 78 years young and was a living example of robust vibrant health.
“Mr. Irons put me on a seven day cleansing and fasting program to cure me of a ten year bout with chronic boils, sinusitis and severe allergies.  At the time this seemed like a radical approach, but it worked extremely well and initiated my passion and early interest in this remarkable field.  Mr. Irons taught me to take responsibility for my health and how to do that.”  
Jim went on to work with Mr. Irons for 10 years and had the unique opportunity to associate with a number of his well known friends and leaders in the natural health movement.  This includes; Dr. John Christopher, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Betty Lee Morales, Paul Bragg, Dr. Donsbach, Dick Gregory and other amazing healers and teachers.
“I didn’t know it at the time, but as life would have it I was blessed with a remarkable mentor and the opportunity to meet his friends and colleagues all of whom were outstanding in their own right.  Mr. Irons was a marvel of good health and a man who practiced what he preached.  During the time I worked for him he fathered his last son at 80.  Ultimately Mr. Irons passed away at the ripe old age of 98 in 1992.  At the time of his death he had an 18 year old son, two daughters in their 20’s and a 76 year old son from his first marriage.  So, you ask, what was his wife’s age?  He married Julia Irons when he was 72 and she was 28. To this day Julia and their son, Robert Irons, own and operates the V.E Irons Co., makers of fine cleansing products; green food concentrates (Greenlife) and other outstanding whole food supplements.  It was a wonderful time and a great way to be initiated.  I will forever be grateful for the mentorship of Mr. Irons.”
Simultaneous to working with Mr. Irons, Jim developed his clinical skills at Complete Health Services – the clinic he founded with his wife, Karen Walker Ehmke.  In addition to his CN (clinical nutritionist) license, Jim also had training in biochemistry and was eager to apply nutrients to improve clients' health by improving body chemistry. 
"My fast is coming along just GREAT!!!  It is absolutely the most amazing experience ever.  I am totally addicted to raw milk. I would bathe in it like Cleopatra (if it wasn't so expensive!!). My skin is softer, my IBS symptoms seem to be less and less each day, no TMA thus far! Bless you for giving me the confidence and the knowledge to do this!  It's awesome!!!!!"  - Donna K., Florida
