THE DOCTOR

LifeSpring Wellness, PHILOSOPHY

We work with many patients who have tried modern medicine (drug therapy/medications) and traditional chiropractic with little or no results. The reason is that our approach is different and unique. We do not treat disease directly, rather we discover functional cause and correct them. As a result those who have suffered for years finally get improvements. The result is greater Joy, Energy, and Focus in life. We help Spring our patients Back into Life, or in other words: LifeSpring Wellness.

OUR CARE

1. Brain based therapy (BBT): Testing and affecting the brain balance. The brain is the primary factor in all health and life.

2. Neuro-Integration Technology: Specific brain exercises (specialized neurobics) and techniques to strengthen and balance your brain. 

3. Metabolic: Biochemical testing involving blood, saliva, urine, stool tests along with questionnaires to determine precise biochemical imbalances.

4. Nutrition: Proper elimination and re-introduction to nourish the body for optimal healing.

Thyroid Testimonial

It has only been 2 weeks and this morning had been the best I have felt in a really long time. I woke up well rested, had energy & I was in a very good mood. This treatment is working. I am slowly getting use to being gluten free. It's been a couple weeks it was hard at first but is getting easier and my clothes are fitting loosely. I also didn't have brain fog today! Yippy!!!
