Dr. Nicholas Kraetzer, D.C. received a doctorate from Pasadena College of Chiropractic in 1988 and has been in practice in Fountain Valley, Orange County, California ever since.

Through his love of good health and chiropractic, Dr. Kraetzer began his life quest for the “Whole Body Wellness” with his extensive background in organic chemistry and comprehensive biochemistry.

For many years, Dr. Kraetzer volunteered as a doctor on a faith based mercy ship and spent a great deal of time developing numerous forms of chiropractic adjustment techniques. At the various ports-of-call, he collected and cataloged many specimens for his formulations as well as explored folk and tribal remedies that have been used for hundreds of years.

Dr. Kraetzer's childhood aspirations were toward veterinary medicine however in his teenage years he was influenced by his uncle to pursue chiropractic sciences.

In developing dozens of naturopathic solutions for ailments, Dr. Kraetzer has opened doors long thought to be closed or too difficult to open.

People, pets, beauty and the cleansing power of marinades that reduce or eliminate toxins, have been the targets of Vital Infusion Labs for over twenty years.

Dr. Kraetzer pursued his education and training in full-body health training from a certified master herbalist and homeopath.  Years of development led to the creation of a very diverse and direct approach to cleansing the body of toxins and pathogens known today as the “Nova Vitae - Whole Body Cleanse”, the starting and ending points for full-body health.

Today Dr. Kraetzer continues to improve and refine his infusions in the pursuit of good health and wellness.

Parasites & Pets...
Dr. Nicholas Kraetzer
Parasites and worms cause a myriad of disease and unhealthy situations for our pets. Allergies, various skin conditions, joint pain, diabetes, metabolic disorders, and degradation of organ systems all have this common denominator. Parasites and worms have also been blamed on the spread of cancer.
Parasites and worms can cause a pet not to live to its potential and optimal capability. They can create poor behavioral patterns and depression. They can effect socializing capabilities and cause erratic behavior and the inability to assimilate within their own groups. They can also advance aging and rob a pet of its youthful exuberance.
The explosive growth capabilities of parasites and worms can cause metabolic exhaustion and many skin or fur conditions. When pets become overwhelmed, itching, constant scratching, and gnawing at joint sites can be signs of an ever increasing population problem. Take for example; the roundworm can produce up to 200,000 eggs per day. Some tapeworms can produce 1 million eggs per day. It is only a matter of time before parasites and worms are in control and create a downward spiral in our pet’s health.
Vital Infusion Labs produces VIP- Vital Infusion Pets as a solution to take control the parasite and worm populations within our pets. VIP plus normal regularly scheduled checkups with your Veterinarian can add years and quality of life.
For those serious about their health, we can help.

Pets in general are the victims of constant bombardment by parasites and worms. They are flanked by assaults due to their environment, food sources, and exposure to other pets. This untiring influence is a prime reason for disease and cutting their lives short. As pets age, parasites and worms not only grow in intensity, but populations continue to multiply day and night.
Parasites and worms harbor pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungus, and deadly toxins. As a result, parasites and worms are able to absorb or block the very nutrition pets need to sustain life. Due to their existence, they pump waste products into the vital areas of our pets. As the parasite and worm populations die, they flood the internals of our pets with pathogens and toxins which feed an explosion of new growth
When Parasites Invade...
Dr. Nicholas Kraetzer


Parasites secrete toxic products and chemicals that are devastating to the nervous system and other tissues. This produces change in the weakened cell walls setting the stage for health issues to arise. Parasitic infections are one cause of a downward spiral of wellness in the human body.
With time, the weakened and fatigued immune system becomes overwhelmed as it attempts to eliminate parasites. The immune system has difficulty destroying these invaders due to the sheer size and continuously multiplying numbers.
For example, roundworms can produce 200,000 eggs per day. Some tapeworms can produce up to one million eggs per day. The increasing parasitic population begins to thrive as hope of recovery for the host decreases.
Most laboratory testing can only detect parasitic activity within the intestinal tract. Very few have the capabilities of detection outside the intestinal tract and other parts of the body. In essence, most parasites are rarely suspects in a declining human condition.
Vital Infusion Labs has created and produced the “Nova Vitae – Whole Body Cleanse”. An extremely complex and gentle product devoted to find resolve for the embattled human body.

There are thousands of known parasites and perhaps millions of unknown varieties.
Parasites can enter the body through many portals, including exposure to those infected, food, during gestation, and environmental means.
These parasites set up communities within their unsuspecting hosts with the intentions of crippling the health of the immune system, body, and brain. These parasitic communities, which are part of a larger pecking order, transfer disease and waste products to other communities within the multiple layers of the body. Parasites can spread pathogens that cause multitudes of illnesses, allergies, tissue destruction, joint pain, arthritis, cravings, acceleration of aging, and even death. They are known to block the absorption of nutrients that are vital to our existence.

Dr. Nick Kraetzer, director at Vital Chiropractic Center, is awesome! His passion for helping people shines through him. His knowledge of diseases and health issues has been very helpful, enlighting and healing. My family has been going to him for years and with his adjusting techniques and Vital Infusion natural remedies we are feeling incredible. All I have to say is that you are not truly living to your full capacity until visiting Dr. Kraetzer.

"Dr nick changed my life. I  came  to him literally broken.  After my first visit I had a breakthrough in my back. I had headaches I couldn't shake and felt sick almost everyday from toxins.  Dr nick gave me his home remedies he has for detox and I lost 70 lbs.  I have been seeing him for 10 years and I promise you won't be disappointed."
I have been a patient of Dr. Kraetzer's for years. He is always professional and willing to answer any questions that I might have. I have sent many friends and relatives to him over the years. If you are looking for a great Chiropractor who values his patients and will give you whatever time you need to discuss your issues, then Dr. Kraetzer is the one. His staff is pleasant and well informed. They do their best to fit you in when you have an emergency, or just walk in. I highly recommend Vital Chiropractic.
