Frequently Asked Questions

What do you treat?

I specialize in Stress Management and hormone health.  I work a lot with adrenal and thyroid conditions which run the gamut from fatigue and insomnia to hypothyroidism and problems with blood sugar (hypoglycemia and diabetes). I am also interested in neurological problems including head trauma and PTSD.

However, I work with Just about anything short of extreme medical emergency, and even then homeopathic medicines can be administered on the way to the hospital and may actually prevent an actual visit. Since treatment is for the whole person, rather than a disease state alone, there are usually multiple interrelated conditions, and the person’s constitutional makeup, which can be addressed.

  • What is Chiropractic?

    • How do Chiropractic Doctors practice?

  • What is Functional Medicine?

    • a personalized form of medicine dealing with primary prevention and underlying causes rather than symptoms of serious, chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:

    • Biochemical individuality relates to the individual variations in metabolic function derived from genetic and environmental differences between individuals.

    • Patient-centered medicine emphasizes "patient care" rather than "disease care," following Sir William Osler’s admonition that "It is more important to know what patient has the disease than to know what disease the patient has."

    • Dynamic balance between internal and external factors.

    • Web-like interconnections of physiological factors – an abundance of research now supports the view that the human body functions as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems, rather than individual systems functioning autonomously and without effect on each other. For example, we now know that immunological dysfunctions can promote cardiovascular disease; that dietary imbalances can cause hormonal disturbances; and that environmental exposures can precipitate neurological syndromes such as Parkinson’s disease.
