“I first experienced the power of chiropractic when i was in the seventh grade. I suffered from headaches and stomachache several days a week for most of my childhood. After meeting with several medical specialist they all agreed that I was fine; all of my lab results were within normal ranges, and imaging studies found no abnormalities. I was living in a haze and taking medication on a daily basis to get by.
I was at a friend’s after school one day and his father a chiropractor, explained how he had helped many people with similar symptoms and that I should schedule an appointment for an evaluation. It took a few weeks to convince my mother that chiropractic may be the answer to my problems. On my initial visit the doctor explained that if I have my ailments several days a week, that it must be related to my diet and probable daily exposure to some environmental toxins. The doctor ordered some blood allergy tests, and then explained that there was pressure being put on some nerves in my body which inhibited them from functioning properly. When the lab results came in the doctor advised that I purchase an air purifier, change my diet, and continue to receive regular chiropractic adjustments.
With in a few months I went from sniffling, sneezing, always sick, and unable to focus: to feeling great, and being able to think more clearly with less effort. Throughout my high-school and college athletic career, chiropractic allowed me to perform better and to heal from injuries in half the time. Chiropractic had just become a way of life for me, and that is when i realized my purpose was to help as many people as I could, to feel the natural benefits of chiropractic.”
