I’m am a Chiropractor from San Diego, retired from working manually on patients but now specializing in Functional Medicine. After four years at University of Missouri (BA Psychology) and four more years at Logan College of Chiropractic. (D.C. Doctor of Chiropractic) I had the exhilarating and humbling pleasure of helping people achieve their health goals for the next twenty years. Specializing in Carpal Tunnel and Ergonomic issues as well as lots of families and kids; work never felt like work.
Ten years ago I went on to the most rewarding and joyful job I’ve ever had when I became a “Mr. Mom“. Working in the classroom, driving carpools, coaching teams and euphorically soaking up my daughters’ mere existence, became the prominent part of my life from the time they were 11 and 13, till they got into college. I viscerally missed the Doctor-Patient experience, so I started up this part of my practice again when they no longer needed/wanted any more regular assistance. (except for, of course, money)
Functional Medicine is the use of diagnostic testing to find specific levels of normal and abnormal body chemistries. Saliva, stool and urine tests are done in your own home to identify very specific amounts of normal and abnormal body chemistries. Lifestyle changes and specific nutrition and nutraceuticals help to bring those levels back in line. The foundation of this work is balancing the Adrenal System, which controls female hormones, fatigue, sleeping, weight metabolism, emotions, immune systems and inflammation. The Digestive and Detoxification Systems are also tested and treated with the same kind of programs.
I am also the Nutritional program Director for “The Bridges of San Diego” sober living facilities. They have locations around the San Diego area and treat predominantly women going through alcohol and/or drug rehabilitation.
My goal is to dispel the perceived inevitability of so many of the health conditions affecting women over 40. Just because some health care systems tell you that something you have is because “you‘re over 40 now“, doesn’t make it right. I will always sincerely care about the patient but will never care more about their condition than they do. I want to help them help themselves, not to do it for them. They’ll always be driving the car, I’m just a passenger.
If I can make a world that has not always been so gender-fair, a better place for my daughters, I will have had a successful life.
