Welcome to the Stoll Foundation for Holistic Health!

The Stoll Foundation is a new, growing non-profit organization, with the goal of helping people anywhere in the world who have chronic symptoms, pain, or illness seeking alternatives to drugs and surgery. Many have not been helped by the conventional medical system or have little or no access to medical care.

Our mission is to improve your life through health education, providing lasting and inexpensive solutions for disease reversal through self-care and healthy lifestyle support (taking into account that conventional medical evaluation may be needed). We would like to teach you to improve your health condition using the 3LS (3-Legged Stool) Wellness Program and other safe, natural means of health improvement and treatment. We’ll instruct you to become a more effective healthcare consumer. And since many of you don’t have health insurance or have poor coverage, we’ll guide you to find resources to care for yourself.

Our books are available through Sunrise Health Coach Publications, who offers books about alternative medicine to assist your own health care efforts. We specifically focus on a holistic understanding of both illness and good health so that holistic tools such as stress management, relaxation, whole foods, diet, exercise, massage, and other natural remedies can be used more effectively to overcome your health issues.  Our publications address concerns such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, cancer, depression, weight loss, mental health, fibromyalgia, and more.  Those interested in sustainability will be pleased that our information can enhance your frugal living efforts and offer a very effective holistic medicine with a DIY component. Stoll Foundation wishes to help you improve your health and save money whether you have or lack health insurance.

What people are saying about Dr. Stoll and the 3LS Wellness Program:

I can tell you from experience, following the 3LS, cured me of all my Bipolar II symptoms. I have been off of all psychiatric medications for about 3 years. The best advice that I can give is to commit yourself to following Dr. Stolls 3LS and know that it will work. It takes time and a lot of patience. While doing this be kind and gentle with yourself. I suggest you read his book, Recapture Your Health, and refer to it often. It will help keep you motivated as your mind and body begin the process to heal itself. — S. A.

I wrote five months ago about my chronic hives, swelling, rosacea and overall health. About month after that I started SR, once I got the required info, books, etc. I have been doing SR (self-hypnosis) twice a day for 25-30 minutes and the results are amazing. Within 10 days of doing SR, my outbreak of hives decreased dramatically and it’s only gotten better. It’s been four months without swelling, my rosacea has dramatically improved – almost gone – and my hives are almost non-existent. I may still get the occasional one here or there, but they don’t increase in size or intensity, no itching and they only last for a couple of hours. In fact, sometimes a session of SR will make them disappear. It’s also been about two months without diarrhea and the cramping in my stomach. I am totally grateful to you for your advice. Thank You! I know I still have a ways to go and need to work on my diet and exercise, but funnily enough incorporating SR into my daily routine has been really easy and now I can’t imagine not doing it. — S. H.

A few years back I wrote about a thyroid nodule I had that had been diagnosed as Hashimoto’s disease. After 3 years of wellness [3LS Wellness Program] (and, I have to admit, done in a rather liberal way) there’s no trace of the nodule and the levels of antibodies are back to normal.  A big thank you to Dr. Stoll for making me believe in myself and taking my life back in my own hands. It’s amazing how much you have helped people over the years. It’s not just the path, the 3LS program or the constant, generous advice you offer, it’s also your absolute faith that improvement is possible and that it’s never too late. All that people need sometimes is someone to convince them change is possible. And no-one’s better than you at that.-  S. I.

Someone told me back then that the term “vestibular neuritis” means “we know that you’re very dizzy, but we have no idea why” (LOL). I remember that it was very bad for a few weeks, then as time went on, it’s like my body kind of got used to it, then it gradually faded. It was definitely worse when I was stressed. I remember that deep breathing helped. The 3LS can work beautifully against candida (and pretty much every health problem out there).I’ve been on the 3LS since late 2004. How can I describe what it’s done for me? After the first 12 months, I was able to discontinue meds I was taking for Grave’s disease. My thyroid numbers have all stayed within normal range, including the all important T-3, T-4, etc. The secret to the 3LS is consistency. You do better if you stick with it religiously. Walt is right, you have to get at the root cause of your symptoms, not treat the symptoms themselves. It pretty much saved my life. — K.I.

I’ve been working with the 3LS for only about six months now (and it was only a 2LS before I started the diet two and a half months ago). So far it has been nothing short of a miracle for me. I had all the usual symptoms of chronic fatigue, muscle aches, depression, anxiety, digestive disturbances, &c that I had been learning to manage for the last three and a half years. Nothing I did during that time has made near the difference that the 3LS has. I’m mostly saying that to give hope to people who aren’t sure if it is the “thing” for them. These days I feel great. I have enough energy to work eight hours a day and really enjoy the work. Even more importantly, I have enough energy to exercise, cook, find time for SR and still enjoy time out with my friends. At my worst, I never thought I would ever feel this good again. – C.G.

For all the doctor’s I have seen throughout the past years and all the varying diagnoses. You have been the only one that really knew what was going on and had a solution. — H. Y.

Back in 2000 I had tested with high ANA around 1200 something. After doing a year of the 3LS Wellness Program and cleansing, detoxing, and SR, my Ana tested at 600 something. Its an ongoing process. — B.B.

Since coming to this site three years ago, I have done a lot of research. A LOT of research. And my conclusion after all that research just comes right back around to what you said in the first place — 3LS. — S. E.

Things are going well, my son is already 4 years old and I have been keeping busy these days. I just wanted to make a post regarding Dr. Stoll’s 3LS plan. It works! I first learned about it 7 years ago and since then I have reversed my dysautonomia, conquered my anxiety and kicked my candida problem. Over the past couple of years there have been times when I slacked on the 3LS, and sure enough after some time my symptoms would start to return. This needs to be a way of life for me and I am happy to report that I feel better than I did 10 years ago :) It is so hard to imagine pulling yourself out of such a mess when your health is falling apart, but be consistent and give yourself time and be patient. You can turn things around if you stick with it. Best of luck and health to all of you. — L. N.

Walt saved my health. Thanks to Walt’s efforts, I received the support and KNOWLEDGE to turn my health around. I can’t describe how awful, how much of a mess my whole system was seven years ago. I was so desperate, I turned to the internet to find knowledge and solve my health problems. I would wake up in the middle of the night, and, without opening my eyes, start sneezing and producing so much clear mucus from my nose I needed to blow my nose repeatedly. This would happen all through the day, and this is only ONE of many symptoms I had that my gut system was a leaking mess and overrun with yeast, fungus, etc. I was guided through the healing process…which is a lifestyle. I don’t know what I would have done/do without this help. To say ‘Thank You’ seems so mundane in light of how much you have helped me, but that is the feeling I always hold in my heart for Walt and those here who have and still help me and others who have finally found the real pathway to health. Walt, you are AWESOME! — P.C.

Tonight I got home late from a party, and went online to look at pictures of the three walled orbital decompression surgery I didn’t have for my Grave’s eye disease. I remember when I was told that if I didn’t take beta blockers I would die, and that I would eventually have to get eye surgery. I listened to you instead. I don’t know if I still have Grave’s Disease or not, but I still fight it: with a healthy, natural diet, Skilled Relaxation and swimming. Tonight I got to see how lucky I have been. The three legged stool may not be the easy way, and certainly it isn’t the fast way, but here I am with normal eyes, my precious thyroid gland in my neck, and a strong, healthy heart. Thank you, Doctor Stoll. – M. Y.

I used to babysit for your great family, and you always were on the cutting edge of everything regarding medicine. One of the best doctors I know.  I am now (at my old age lol) doing a work study at a Holistic Career Place.  I am excited to have found your wonderful website. — B. H.
