I have always had a drive to help people who suffer with health problems. What I love the most about my job is the chance to give back someone’s life. Dealing with my own personal health issues and reflecting on my lifestyle at the time is what lead me to an alternative approach for my recovery.
My wife and I had just moved to Dallas where I was to finish college and wanted to attend medical school, but I developed a painful intestinal condition. The intestinal pains were so intense I became a prisoner in my own house. I could no longer eat normal meals and my body started to waste away. I went from 185 pounds to a sickly 150 pounds. The MD’s ran every exam under the sun and what they found was inflammation in the colon. The internist ended up diagnosing me with Colitis (a type of autoimmune disease). The doctors gave me a drug and told me that I would be on it for the rest of my life. There was little improvement with the medication, and I was afraid that I would not be able to have a normal life again. And because Colitis can be degenerative, the other option would be surgery (according to them) to remove the affected area of the colon. But I was not willing to take that option. At the time I was also suffering from low back pain that I had for several years. I decided to go to a chiropractor for my pain. That is where I started to learn about the underlying causes of my issues. While under care my body was able to start the healing it needed to get well because the stresses causing my symptoms were being addressed, not just the symptoms. And because of that, it has been over 16 years since I have taken medicine for my Colitis.
Since receiving my doctorate in chiropractic in 2004 from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas, I have undergone more than 500 hours of postgraduate training with the greatest minds in the healing arts which has taught me the most advanced skills to help people of all ages. I focus on the functional aspects that control the body by looking at underlying issues that cause imbalances to the nervous system, hormones and blood chemistry. I also evaluate nutrition in individuals by looking at three factors: toxicities, inflammation and deficiencies. I educate clients about a natural and holistic lifestyle that can achieve miraculous results.
The most important thing I do for my wife, Betsy, and two daughters, Gianna and Reagan, is ensure they are expressing their full health potential through a healthy lifestyle.
