My name is Dr. John Treece, and I have been practicing comprehensive and restorative chiropractic care since 2014.
I understand when you’re selecting a physician and primary care provider, you have many choices, many of which can be influenced by factors such as location, referrals, skill specializations, and insurance networks or limitations.

Dr. Vincent A. DiSilvestro, MD
VP of Physician Recruitment and President of RejuvaNation Medical Concierge
Dr. Disilvestro is a board-certified Nephrologist and entrepreneur practicing medicine in the Chicagoland area for over 25 years. He trained at Loyola University Medical Center. While running his own practice, he built and was the medical director of three free-standing hemodialysis centers, and a Home Peritoneal Dialysis company, which were eventually sold to Davita, the largest Hemodialysis provider in the US.
After years of caring for patients with end-stage complications of diabetes, hypertension and poor-life choices, he decided that the current medical model of focusing on fixing problems versus preventing problems and optimization of health would be more rewarding. After meeting with Chris White and understanding his vision for the future of quality healthcare, he decided this was what medicine should be, focusing on preventative and regenerative healthcare.

Get to Know Your DNA!
Did you know that your health and energy issues may be due to secrets hiding in your genes? Protouch Rehab is a leading Naturopathic practice integrating this new scientific approach to optimizing wellness through nutrition based on your unique DNA make-up.
A New Approach to Wellness
At Protouch Rehab, we specialize in nutritional genetic testing and individualized support. By employing scientific studies, our research team is on the cutting edge of gene research.
Now through genetic saliva testing, we can measure your ability to make and use enzymes that are critical components of your health. When in balance, these enzymes can control free radicals, clear environmental toxins, keep your cells healthy, and rebuild new cells effectively. As a result, you may look and feel younger, have more energy and remain healthy and vibrant as you age.
Harnessing Your DNA for Optimal Health
If you’ve been searching for answers to build your health, then testing your DNA should be the next step. Protouch Rehab utilizes the 23andMe® kit and results to interpret your results using a proprietary software. The 23andMe® test is simple to do. You just complete the form, fill the provided tube with your saliva, mail the kit, and then receive a personalized report with online access to your genetic data, as well as an ancestry report. Then Dr. Steve can help you understand your DNA test results and what they could mean to your health.
In a private, 30-minute consultation with Dr. Steve…in person or on a phone or video conference, you’ll receive a Genetic Variant Nutritional Assessment report from our proprietary software that analyzes your 23andMe® raw data plus recommendations for a custom nutritional protocol based on your unique genetics. This protocol will supplement your missing nutrients and antioxidants or use nutrients to aid in the production of needed enzymes to ultimately reduce damaging oxidants and support healthy cells. We also may make other recommendations that could include dietary changes and/or suggested detoxification therapies.
We’ll follow up with you to monitor your progress and make changes as needed. It is often necessary to go through different phases of nutritional support until we get to a maintenance protocol. The goal is to resolve immediate issues and then start a maintenance program that supports your nutritional health needs.
Thanks to new technology advances, a simple saliva test today can measure 602,000 pieces of your DNA. This is an important development! Everyone has some level of genetic variation in their DNA…it’s not just a rare occurrence. Since variants can impact your ability to make and use different nutrients, everyone is susceptible in their own unique way.
Gaps in your DNA can impact:
- Pain and Inflammation
- Gluten tolerance
- Lactose tolerance
- Blood sugar regulation
- Mitochondrial function
- Free radical production/ premature aging
- Master antioxidant production
- And more!

He is a competition coach as an Ex Physique Competitor. He preps clients (male and female) to compete in shows. He has helped six clients win 1st place; one win 2nd place and one win 3rd place. In two years of coaching competitors, Johnny has never had one not place.
Johnny comes from a boxing background, starting at age 11 and continuing until the age of 20, where he had an Achilles tendon tear and was unable to train anymore. Once Johnny healed, he began to lift weights. He met a personal training in the process and began to study the body and how amazing the sport of bodybuilding is on the mind, body and spirit.
At age 21, He got his first personal training job at a local corporate gym and over the years, Johnny went back to get more certifications and began to find his niche. At age 23, He came across physique competitions. So he did his first show with little knowledge about it and got into the best shape of his life at the moment. Not placing high motivated him to keep perfecting and understanding his body, and the nutrition needed to stay shredded all year long. That is where his passion for nutrition came from.
Johnny began researching all the food he ate and learned what he was taught was healthy was causing more problems. He decided to go back to school and become a certified Nutritionist to be able to truly help people FEEL BETTER – not just look better. During this period, he began to change his body every year through a mind-muscle connection he created through trial and error. Moreover, Johnny started to perfect his diet, allowing him to maintain a six-pack all year long.
Johnny has created a plant-based MEAL PLAN, while still consuming some meat, but eliminating all the foods causing our bodies to get some of the most common auto-immune diseases.
