My mission is to help you be as healthy as you want to be. Whether it is a quick adjustment to get you out of pain, to a complete overhaul to get you back to optimal health, it is ultimately your choice. I'm here to help you reach your goals.
I view my job as being a combination of health detective and lifestyle consultant. I need to sort out what factors may be causing your problem. I take into account both the internal and environmental factors that have an impact on your health. I do orthopedic and chiropractic testing to look for structural misalignment of your back, neck and extremities.
Electro-Meridian Imaging (EMI) measures the energy in your acupuncture meridians and helps me look for imbalances that may be caused by; chronic infections, food and airborne allergies, nutritional imbalances, environmental poisoning from bad air (Sick Building Syndrome) or electromagnetic fields and other various stressors in your life. These factors can cause digestive problems, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, infertility, skin problems, hormone imbalances, eating disorders, asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, pain in your joints, headaches, back aches, chronic recurring bladder or yeast infections, etc.
Nutrition testing helps me to correlate the EMI findings and zero in on what health problems exist. Most of these problems can be treated naturally without drugs or surgery. Occasionally, I will recommend more extensive testing like blood tests, x-rays and CAT scans.
Once I've sorted out the cause of the problem I can then recommend structural, nutritional and dietary changes to help your body heal itself naturally. Like a coach or consultant, I outline the program but you are the one who has to do most of the work. The treatments I use to help make these health changes are varied. I use chiropractic manipulation to treat problems related to the spine and extremities. In addition, I recommend specific exercises to help strengthen and rehabilitate these chronic and acute problem areas. Nutritional supplements, dietary changes and Acupuncture may be recommended to help improve any internal problem, acute or chronic illness that is affecting your health. My recommendations depend on what I find and how healthy you wish to get. What you wish to do with those recommendations is still up to you.
I believe our bodies have the innate ability to fix virtually any health problem given the right environment and assistance. The greatest drug company in the world is right inside your body. It knows how to produce antibodies and painkillers in the right dose to the right place without any side affects. Our toxic environment and crazy lifestyles inhibit our healing systems and we eventually get sick. It is the things we do on a daily basis that either make us healthy or make us ill. My job is to help out when you aren't living life up to your full human potential.
