"As a child, I struggled with many health problems; traditional medicine did not give me the relief I needed. With the help of chiropractic and nutritional care, I was able to regain my health. Another factor that led me to alternative health care was seeing my grandfather’s suffering in his death. This also changed my thought process on how to help people. I believe God used these experiences to guide my path today.
My pre-med training took place at Bluffton College. I graduated from Palmer College and I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1984. I practiced a year in Dayton which opened my eyes to the variety of health needs present in today’s world. The environment is constantly changing and affecting our health. Stress, lack of proper physical, emotional, and spiritual care of our bodies as well as ignorance about our own bodies contribute to the many illnesses today.
I traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada and Europe for more advanced healthcare training. I received, after many years of study, my Diplomat of Homeopathy. The natural healing of homeopathic medicine has been a passion of mine for the past 24 years.
The Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) has brought great results for me personally, my family, and my patients. I have studied different forms of allergy elimination during the last 22 years, but have found that NAET works most effectively.
There are two forms of deeper emotional healing techniques I use in the practice, Neurointegration and NET (Neuro Emotional Technique). These techniques are very unique individually, but can be used interchangeably to help facilitate faster healing. They also remove past subconscious patterns that can cause health problems.
I have a worldwide circle of relationships with various healthcare providers and doctors that help expand our team and provide maximum care. God blesses this office with innovative ideas, a great staff and supportive healthcare providers for which I am thankful. My individual goal for each patient is to evaluate their health needs and design a course of treatment for them that will lead to their total wellness and balance. "
