Dear Friends of Wilbur:

People often ask me to tell them stories of "cures" that I have witnessed
during my 45 years at Wilbur Hot Springs.

When I arrived at Wilbur, in 1972, there was one room full of crutches and
wheel chairs. One could easily assume they were left by people who arrived using them and who left no longer needing them.

I have never seen a person, other than myself (that's another story), arrive with crutches or a wheel chair and depart, no longer requiring them.

However, I have witnessed some remarkable changes and recently something quite dramatic occurred at Wilbur.

A lovely couple, Berney and Nicolette came to live and work at Wilbur on Thanksgiving Day 2016. Berney arrived with high blood pressure as measured 160/110. As of this writing his blood pressure, as reported by him, and taken at least once, if not more, daily, is 118/78 (what every cardiologist would be delighted with).

Nicolette arrived with a chronic skin condition which she reports having most, if not all, of her life. Presently her skin is clear. (what every dermatologist would be thrilled with).

Next time you are at Wilbur please say hello to me and my wife, Jolee. We are the tall couple with the smiling eyes and laughing hearts. Sometimes we are on bikes and sometimes on an electric ATV (Wilbur quiet) with solar panels on the roof.

Wishing you excellent health,

Caretaker, Wilbur Hot Springs

Meet Berney and Nickie
This month we are proud to acknowledge Berney and Nicolette Lincoln.  Berney and Nicolette, also known as Nickie, arrived at Wilbur this past Thanksgiving day.  They are originally from San Diego and owned and operated a holistic health center there called The Alternative Health Center of San Diego. They closed the center in 2012 after 12 very successful years.

We are glad to have them on board.  They bring a wealth of natural healing and wellness information and will fit in very nicely to our Wilbur family.

The next time you are here be sure to look them up and say hi.  They are excited to meet you and are available to answer questions about health and wellness as well as about life at Wilbur and the healing waters it provides.
