I am one of her devoted clients.”Sharon, Arizona
“Joanna at Golden Wings Wellness changed my life. I suffered from sleep issues for years, my mom and my grandfather both suffer from the same insomnia, the kind where you can not fall asleep initially, so I thought that my problem was genetic. Then a girlfriend of mine told me about the amazing success she had with this naturopathic doctor in treating her baby blues, then another friend told me about this same doctor (Joanna) and her amazing recovery from having a parasite, so I decided I would give it a shot and see if there was any hope for me. Joanna was amazingly knowledgeable and while things were so unorthodox from the kind of western treatments I was used to, I felt very confident that things would improve after my initial consultation with Joanna. And I was right. Within a month I was sleeping normally, without sleep aids or wine, for the first time since high school (14 years!) I continued with the adrenal treatments she had me on along with the other supplements for imbalances in my system, and within a year I no longer needed the adrenal regulators and I have slept normally, soundly, and unaided ever since. I also saw Joanna for nutritional support during my pregnancy, which I contribute to never having morning sickness and having a very healthy pregnancy. It is amazing what she can find in your body’s energy and correct naturally. Thank you Joanna and staff at Golden Wings Wellness!!!”Erica, San Diego

“My experience and journey with Joanna has been amazing. Beyond her incredible knowledge is her love, kindness and passion that she shares. She always gives her whole heart and undivided attention each and every time we are together. I always leave confident with the information and suggestions she has given and can truly say I feel amazing! I’ve seen Joanna almost a year and have seen such positive changes in my overall health and well being. She always gets back to me when I have any questions or concerns. I just had a baby and Joanna was there for me the entire way and continues to offer her amazing advice as we enter this new chapter together. I’m so grateful for Joanna not only professionally but more importantly as a true friend.”Kristen, San Diego
“I’m a 64-year-old woman who pretty much drilled myself into the ground the first 40 years of my life. Standard American diet, too much social drinking, over exercising, stressful job without managing the stress, etc. My poor treatment of myself showed up first in the digestion. As the gut began to misbehave, the adrenals refused to bounce back as they used to, and sleeping well became a thing of the past. I pushed and dragged on, thinking “so this is what aging feels like.” By 1997 I’d developed leaky gut, and its inherent food sensitivities; experienced inept dentistry leaving me with a dead tooth in my head for years and many old mercury amalgam fillings; broken my tailbone two different times; and had surgery which caused menopause. I started reading health-related books and newsletters and seeing doctors and alternative practitioners.
I learned that the medical types were not helpful for my particular ailments. Just one example — a cardiologist prescribed a med for irregular heartbeat supposedly caused by a syndrome he diagnosed. My insurance immediately went up 20%. (Interestingly, about 17 years later, as a result of having fainted in a restaurant and being taken to the ER, many tests were done on my heart. It was determined I did not have that syndrome.) Refusing the med, I sought out alternatives instead. I saw and worked with many well-meaning people, including chiropractors and naturopaths. The results were generally “two steps forward and one back,” with the occasional mini-crisis of some sort causing me to move on seeking better help. No doubt some of these mini-crises I caused all by myself, such as trying heavy metal removal following directions in a book. I did learn from all this, albeit painfully.
In 2006 I heard Dr. Bob Marshall on the radio. Much of what he talked about was pertinent to me, so I made an appointment at the Premier Center, then in Torrance, CA. I was consulted with and tested, and followed the nutritional regimen, which included supplements, which foods to eat, and which ones to avoid. I was told to do mud packs on myself, and did so. I was told I must have dental work in a specific manner, and did so. I made slow progress, learned more about my body’s issues, and made improvements going forward without the backwards steps. Although it was working, the traveling to Torrance was difficult, so after a year I looked for a local person who knew Dr. Marshall’s methods, etc.
I had a few appointments for testing and mud packing, continued using Dr. Marshall’s products, held my own, but was not really getting better. I had not found anyone who used Dr. Marshall’s techniques who I felt was capable and willing to work with me to peel the onion, address all my issues, and help me become as well as possible. Then I happened upon Joanna Papatsani. Finally, someone with the knowledge, skills, tools, commitment and loving, calm, caring personality who really knows how to help people heal. I’ve learned just how tied together the body all is. From the seemingly frivolous: Who knew getting permanent makeup on one’s eyebrows (several times) could affect the gallbladder? To the serious: Who knew a whacked tailbone could seriously affect the kidneys? Who knew a bad tooth could poison your heart? And, who knew bad digestion and subsequent rotting food could mess up the liver so much that hormonal imbalance becomes hormone hell? By using the QRA technique and other skills Joanna has prioritized my treatments and nutrition, doing what my body is ready for. She’s cleared multiple interference fields from various accidents and surgeries throughout my life. We continue to work on heavy metal removal the right way, slowly and gently, always mindful of what the body can handle. For about 17 years the back of my head and neck were very stiff and ached. That is gone. I can sleep again. My general well-being is at its highest level in many years. Now I don’t need to experiment on my own. I can count on Joanna.
Not everyone needs or wants as much help as I do. Several of my family members have been to Joanna – my 90-year-old mother; husband; two young adult nieces; and two four-year-old kids of my niece. All have benefited. My husband regularly sees Joanna to peel his own 67-year-old onion. My mom had a chronic bladder infection for years. She lives out of state, so came here for a visit to get treatment from Joanna. That was October of 2012. The treatments and nutrition worked, and she is still (March, 2014) without bladder problems. That is, perhaps, the best way I can express my trust in Joanna – there’s not much more precious than Mom.”

“For a few years I had been on the right path regarding healthy eating, supplements and exercise. However I started to feel like I was relying on generalized information. With Joanna I feel like the information she provides is specific to me and only me. She is so caring and compassionate. Her knowledge and advice are amazing. She has a gift and we are all fortunate that she has chosen to share it.”Anonymous

“After many years of a chronic UTI condition, repeated courses of antibiotics, and the same responses from traditional medicine, a friend encouraged me to visit Joanna and Golden Wings Wellness. My condition started to improve immediately. I am so grateful to Joanna and her approach to recovery and wellness. My experience truly turned my life around. “ Ellen – Rancho, San Diego
“Golden Wings Wellness has provided outstanding and immeasurable personal care and concern for my individual health issues. Johanna’s knowledge, training and education have given her the ability to improve the health of her clients without using drugs and/or toxic materials. She is truly a remarkable and talented alternative health care provider. GWW has allowed me to discard several prescribed medications that were not curing my symptoms, but instead were filling my body with chemicals & toxins which affected my organs and cells.” CW
