Ted's Natural Health Blog



Dr. Cibik focuses attention on each client, recognizing that every individual has different needs and solutions for health issues. 

All divisions of Inner Strength, Inc. are the practice and expertise of Ted J. Cibik, PhD, ND, DMQ, HFI the company’s founder and executive director. Dr. Cibik, has made health, healing and wellness his passion all his life, and his profession for many years.

Ted Cibik's interest in health and wellness techniques began at a very young age. Diagnosed at the young age of 4 with 'incurable asthma', young Ted was one of the 10 worst asthma cases that had ever been documented at this time.

In order to control these attacks at a very young age, Ted began meditating at the age of 5 and later researched nutrition aspects and strictly controlled his diet. Martial arts training and weight lifting activities were a part of his wellness routine for building body strength and lung capacity. While the physicians predicted that he would not live to be an adult, Ted was able to not only survive their predictions, but go on to found his own business in health and wellness to help others.
