I have over 24 years of experience helping people improve their health and reaching their health goals. I am excited you found me and are ready to improve your own health!
I would like to share a little about my own journey, which began with severe eczema around the age of 6. My hands would break out in such severe rashes, itchy, oozing, and bleeding from the eczema and it was quite embarrassing to go to school as the kids would tease me terribly. My mother would take me to the medical doctor, who would prescribe various ointments with no relief. At times my hands would clear, but it was not until I moved away from home that I was able to discover the cause – I was having an allergic reaction to some soaps (especially Ivory soap). To this day I must be very careful with any soaps or lotions that I use, as many can bring on itchy and begin the eczema cycle again.
This was my first eye opener in realizing how what we put in and on our bodies, influences our health in positive and negative ways. Thus, my journey into health care was off. I began chiropractic school at the age of 21 and have never looked back. You see, I believe that every symptom is there for a reason – we need to get down to the core of what is going on. Not mask it with medications, lotions and potions.
I have had many challenges that have taught me over and over to get to the root cause. My oldest son struggled with asthma that began when we moved to Wichita, KS. The underlying cause: food sensitivities to gluten, wheat, and dairy as well as some environmental allergies. My youngest son was breaking out in an unusual rash on his body that would come and go. The underlying cause: he is allergic to plastic #3, vinyl and it’s derivatives. This includes plastics used for repelling water (think kids water toys and rain coats), Saran Wrap, shower curtains, many 3 ring binders, and the list goes on. Oftentimes it is not obvious what the underlying cause is. But persistence helps to get to the answer, and I am persistent!
I could have easily put my oldest son on medications, or my youngest son on lotions and creams. Short term it may have helped. But what about their long-term health? What kind of affect would these have on their immune system? There is a better way!
