Advocating for Veteran Health
At Holtorf Medical Group, our unwavering commitment lies in supporting the health and well-being of our brave Combat Veterans. We believe in going the extra mile by providing personalized treatment plans that harness the power of cutting-edge functional medicine services, something often lacking in the current Veteran healthcare system.
Our exceptional range of services, including peptides, IV Therapy, NSD, Ozone, and more, are carefully designed to help veterans not only improve their overall health but also effectively manage the effects of combat trauma. With us, they'll receive the individualized attention and groundbreaking treatments they truly deserve. Together, we're dedicated to creating a brighter and healthier future for those who have served our country bravely.
Thirty percent of veterans have disabilities as a result of their health problems
3.5 million troops from recent wars were exposed to highly toxic chemicals which may have caused them unforeseen health problems
Since 2002, more than 200,000 service members have suffered traumatic brain injuries
Jesse Bielmann, USAF (CCT) - Special Forces Combat Controller
"My son served six years in the Air Force as a Special Operator, including combat deployments to Afghanistan. He coped with significant physical and psychological trauma from intense combat. On March 16, 2022, he was found unconscious and in critical condition, suffering from multi-organ failure, Rhabdomyolysis, Aspiration pneumonia, and acute kidney failure. The cause was determined to be a seizure linked to a brain infection, possibly acquired during his service.
Thankfully, we connected with Dr. Kent Holtorf, who provided the care my son needed outside of the VA system. With alternative treatments such as peptides, Ketamine, and IV therapies, Jesse's pain and health significantly improved. Dr. Holtorf's support and the clinic facilitated his full recovery, allowing him to transition off pharmaceutical medications and embrace this superior form of medicine."
Below are just some of the proud combat veterans we've treated at Holtorf Medical Group.

"After my son's recovery, thanks in large part to the treatments at Holtorf Medical, I discovered more veterans that suffered similar medical issues. Many of them found no improvement with typical insurance medicine. I started the Veterans Appreciation Program for this very reason, and I am happy to share the stories of those we have helped. Thanks to the staff and doctors at HMG, the First There Foundation, and our other partners, I know we can help perhaps hundreds of suffering veterans take their lives back!"
