Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

What are hormones and why do I need them?

Hormones are an essential part of the metabolic process of living.  Hormones are important for the cells, organs, and metabolism.  Our hormones decline through aging,  menopause, disease or trauma.  When this happens, we begin an accelerated aging process.  Loss of hormones is one of the major reasons for our deterioration as we get older, both physically and mentally.  Hormones are beneficial at any age, but the best long term protective benefits are achieved if hormones are replaced when you begin to lose them, usually in our 40's.


Chiropractic concerns itself with the restoration of good health by restoring and maintaining a properly functioning nervous system, without the use of drugs or surgery. Your body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. This is called Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). The chiropractic adjustment removes nervous irritation and once this nervous irritation is removed, your body is able to heal itself.

Designed Clinical Nutrition

Standard Process® Whole Food Supplements

The best supplements are made from whole food sources.  Whole food nutritional supplements are made from organically grown plants.  These plants are then juiced, dehydrated, concentrated and made into capsules or tablets.  “Designed Clinical Nutrition” is whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder.  Whole food supplements preserve all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as nature intended.  These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body.  These are nutrients you are simply not getting or not assimilating, in your current diet.  These deficiencies may be due to your past personal eating habits and routines, and in large extent, to the lack of quality in the foods commercially available in groceries or restaurants today.


Diversified Technique is the classic chiropractic technique, developed by D.D. Palmer, DC. and taught in all chiropractic colleges. The focus is on restoration of normal biomechanical function, and correction of subluxations. In addition, Diversified methods have been developed to adjust extremity joints, allowing for beneficial applications in treating sports injuries and other injuries. Diversified adjusting of the spine uses specific lines of drives for all manual thrusts, allowing for specificity in correcting mechanical distortions of the spine.


Dr. Cox explains Flexion-Distraction (also known as Cox Technic), as a marriage of chiropractic principles with the osteopathic principles set forth by Alan Stoddard, DO, in his book, Manual of Osteopathic Technique, written about the manipulative procedures developed by John McManis, DO, in the early 1900's. Since the early 1970's, Dr. Cox has refined and improved the technique. Flexion-Detraction is an excellent technique to treat low back conditions such as sciatica, degenerative disc disease and bulging disc problems.

Herbal Medicine

Several systems of herbal medicine are used today, yet they all share the viewpoint of treating the body as a whole and using each plant's unique energies to synergistically work with the energy of each patient. The most prevalent systems are Western, Ayurvedic, Chinese, Native American, and European. Herbs are foods, as well as medicines, and must be used with moderation. There are 5 accepted major classifications of herbs. Aromatic, Astringent, Bitter, Mucilaginous, and Nutritive. Herbs can be dispensed in many ways.

Holistic Care

Holistic medicine is a system of health care which fosters a cooperative relationship between practitioner and patient -- leading to optimal physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual health. It emphasizes the need to consider the whole person: including analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual and lifestyle values. Holistic medicine focuses on education as well as personal responsibility for achieving balance and well being.


Homeopathy, which was developed in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1834), uses extreme dilutions of elements which, when taken by a healthy person, cause similar symptoms to the ailment being treated. Such heavily diluted preparations are very low in toxicity, with scarce side effects. Modern homeopathy uses a combination of remedies to stimulate organ function, induce drainage and detoxification, and provide cellular support.


Introduced in 1964, Kinesiology is a diagnostic form of biomechanics that analyzes and investigates human motion using the body's biofeedback system. Muscle testing is applied to the individual's unique physiology to identify imbalances in the body's physical, chemical, or emotional systems. This establishes the priority of the body's healing needs and evaluates energy transformations created by both manual and non-manual therapeutic procedures. Treatment can include light massage to relax or stimulate key muscles at specific points on the body.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is a method of healing that utilizes human touch to promote relaxation, relief of tension, and a greater level of well being. There are numerous methods and techniques of massage, ranging from the most gentle, superficial stimulation to deep, forceful manipulation of muscle groups. Massage is used as a complement to many other forms of healing. Massage Therapy promotes healthy circulation, ease of movement, deep breathing, strong immunity, and mental clarity. Massage lowers stress and anxiety levels, reduces blood pressure, and shortens the healing time of injuries.
