For us this is what sets us apart from the rest of helathcare doctors and is what provides our patients with truely amazing results.
How long will it take before I feel better?
The time it takes for you to feel better depends on your initial health status, how long you have had the problem, and your willingness and ability to follow our recommendations. Most patients few much, much better in just a few visits and some have immediate results. Again this just depneds on you and the nature of your health condition. Our goal and intention is for you to have noticable improvements in just the first few weeks of care.

Exactly what do you do? And what is the treatment process?
The first thing we do is listen to you and to what your body has to say as to the nature of your health problem in conjunction with the best lab assessments available to best understand you and your health condition.

You deserve to be healthy and happy and more than likely we can significantly help you with your condition.
How is your approach and treatment different than what I have already tried?
Our approach is different from most health care providers because of our core principles, philosophy and comphrehensiveness of our evaluation and the care that we give is guided by your innate intelligence.
Our Core Principles
Address the cause not just the symptoms: Many healthcare providers focus on symptom reduction which can offer short term results but no long term benfits because the cause of the problem has not been addressed. Symptom reduction only can create other more servere problems in the long run where as addressing and eliminateing the cause can create a fuller long lasting improvement of health
Let food be thy medicine: The food we eat can be friend - building a healthy mind and body or foe - creating mental and physical health problems. When we look and the most problematic heatlh conditons we face like heart disease, cancer, diabetes all of these or rooted in the diet we eat. Change to a diet that is more approipiate for the individual and health can be restored.
Your body knows how to heal. We only need to support that process by first removing obstacles to healing (dehydration, poor diet, food sensitivites, toxciities, infection and emotional stress) and then supporting the body with what it needs most to heal and be fully functioning. Many practioners see the body as a chemical machine that needs to controled and manipulated through drugs and other chemical therapies. Working with your body's ability to heal involves more than just chemical manipulation and also includes physical, mental and emotional aspects of the patient aswell. True healing and health requres a comphrensive appraoch that address the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs of the individual.
Comprhensiveness of Care
Few healthcare providers have an evaluation as comprehensive as the one we provide or the broad scope of theapies to utilize to assist the healing process of the individual.
An example of this is the typical chiropractic doctor who sees all problems as being an interference with the nerve flow from the brain through the spine to your muslces and organs. The treatment for this is to find and remove structural interfence patterns called subluxations with a chiropractic adjustment. Often requiring multiple adjustments over a period of time to correct the issue or problem.
Though this approach is philosophical sound it misses and doesn't address the underlying cause of how did that "subluxtion" get there in the first place. Perhaps some other type of intervention or care would be more effective in solving that particular issue. In our practice we utilize many therapies that support the healing ability of the body which include chiropractic care as well as, homepathy, nutrition, mind-body therapy like NET or TBM, color therapy and more. Which therapy is best for your is dtermined by biofeedback from your body via manual muscle testing. In this way we are able to provid the most appropriate care for YOU! and gives us a huge advantage over other health care providers. This is also the reason why our patients get dramatic results in recorded time.
