Green Lake Healing Center


For a number of years, dating back as early as 1982, I have had the pleasure of experiencing the proficiency of Paul Olko’s Chinese Herbal Care.

I have had continued success over the years with the many Chinese herbal formulas that Paul has prescribed for me, as well as for my daughter.

It is my firm conviction that the expertise and knowledge of Paul Olko in providing me with very thorough consultations, diagnoses and prescribed Chinese formulas, have been the reasons why I have experienced such success. Paul also provided a comfort that enabled me to participate in a healing process of this nature.

He has treated me for problems, from minor ones such as colds, influenza, ear and eye infections, to more complex formulas for uterus strengthening, hormonal balancing and postpartum depression.

Considering Paul operates a very high volume practice, he has always provided me with extreme quality care.

I consider myself very fortunate to have the availability of a Chinese herbalist of Paul Olko’s caliber.

I came to Paul a little over a year ago with a lot of complaints—fatigue, depression, decreased libido, back pain and irregular periods. After listening to my symptoms and examining me, he recommended some herbal preparations and instructions for me to follow. Paul also gave me the most incredible full body massage, which helped to relax my knotted muscles and my mind. I followed up with Paul for several months so that he could monitor my progress with the herb formulas and keep my body tension-free through massage so that I could exercise without pain. It was AMAZING! After only four months, I had more energy, almost no PMS, a more regular monthly cycle and no back pain.

Only eight weeks ago I consulted Paul on the subject of infertility because my husband and I were having no success conceiving after TRYING for a year. I had been on a formula for this for a few months, but still something was missing. After some wonderful advice from Paul about relaxing and letting God take control my husband and I were blessed. We are expecting our second child in June, 1992.

For any woman who may read this and need some encouragement about using Paul’s methods of treatment for the whole person, whether it be for infertility, PMS, or the common cold, please take the time and really listen to him, because I feel that through him, God is speaking to you.


For the last six months I have had the good fortunate to be under the care of Paul Olko. I started treatment for a herniated disc in my lower back in January, 1993. At first I went to Paul once a week, then three times a week, and now every other week. Early on we concentrated on my back problem. Later, however, his wide range of expertise as a Chinese Herbalist became evident as we began treating other problems (a cold, hay fever, and PMS).

As a health care professional, I would like to note other aspects of Paul’s caring style. First, he gives a thorough exam, looking at the whole picture. Second, and what impresses me most, are his continuous evaluations. Paul listens to what his patients say about how they are feeling and adjusts the treatment if it is necessary.

Please consider this letter in good faith to grant Paul Olko a certificate as a Chinese Herbalist.

For more than two years Paul Olko has provided Chinese Herbal Care for me and my son and daughter.

Paul obviously loves his work with herbs. His belief in their effectiveness is contagious. When I would ask him about a health problem I was experiencing, his response was thorough and enthusiastic. Paul has always been sensitive to my information, impressions and experience. His prescriptions never failed to help and cure my problems.

Paul has given me herbs which shrank uterine fibroids, for flu, colds, digestive problems, weight loss, lack of energy, estrogen deficiency, ear and eye irritations. Paul has successfully treated my son for asthma and nervous disorders with herbs. He has assisted my daughter in recovering from chronic fatigue syndrome.

It has been an adventure for me to prepare teas from the original herbal mixtures Paul prescribes from his huge store of ingredients.

Paul is my first choice of help when I have a medical problem. He has given me faith that I can heal my body and often my mind and emotions with Chinese herbs in a safe, balance and altogether beneficial manner without negative side effects.


It was wonderful to hear from you and you’re quite welcome for the overalls—I’m glad pink is a good color for Gabrielle. She is a beautiful little girl and I’m thankful for being able to share in her life, even it if was only for a little while. But I do hope I’ll get to see you all again soon.

It took some time for me to get adjusted to being back in Jersey. The first week was sheer craziness and stress, the second week the blues set in, and now I’m feeling better, a bit more encouraged and a lot more settled (and it’s even the week of my period!!) Which, by the way, there are NO symptoms! This is the second month in a row with no weirdness. Thank you, Paul!  I’ll be forever grateful and I don’t mean to sound corny but I honestly feel I owe you my life.

You mentioned something about changing my formula. Could you do that for me and send it to me?  I’ll be glad to pay you.

I’m still using the old formula and for a couple of days I take the false unicorn root.

I’ll be starting classes at a local college on Wednesday, and I’m looking for a job doing massage part-time. My parents have been extremely supportive and although I miss John, I know I made the right decision by leaving. I miss Atlanta sometimes but it’s really beautiful up here. I’m looking forward to autumn for it is, without doubt, my favorite season in the north.

When do you all plan on moving? Will it be this winter? Please write and let me know your plans. I hope everything is going well and I miss you a lot. You give a pretty mean massage.


Being a teacher of hearing impaired adolescents, I am almost constantly exposed to a variety of “bugs” and reasons for exhaustion! However, during the past three years, I have been remarkably more healthy and productive; and I attribute this primarily to the excellent, weekly treatments given to me by Paul Olko.

Paul’s knowledge of Chinese herbology seems endless; but more importantly, his application is thorough, conscientious and very successful.

Paul has treated me for a wide variety of ailments, from stubborn skin infections to acute poison ivy; from painful dental problems to stiff necks; from PMS to sore joints. His preventative approach to the “flu” season has left many of my colleagues questioning their less successful shots and antibiotics. But the most critical and dramatic work that Paul has done with me has been the balancing of my Yin. A serious deficiency has been greatly decreased  over the years; the tonifying teas, the diet ideas and even the Ya Ching Music for Health that Paul has prescribed for me have made a world of difference in my life!

I cannot thank him enough! Nor can I recommend anyone more highly than I do Paul Olko—a knowledgeable, caring and committed practitioner of Chinese herbology.
