Please feel free to answer a few of these questions or write a personal message to local Eugene Chapter members:

I was exposed to the Weston A Price foundation many years ago by A chiropractor I give credit for saving my life.  When I was 15 years old I was diagnosed with bone cancer. On my mothers birthday my family was told I had 3-6 months to live and needed to go through chemotherapy.  Thankfully, the chemotherapy killed the cancer but left me horribly sick with a dead immune system. I broke out with many opportunistic infections which led me back to the doctor – each time only to get another medication. At 15 years old i was on 12 medications and horribly frustrated.  It was not until i met a chiropractor who adjusted me and taught me the true principles of health and healing that i was able to regain my vitality.  He got me running after being on crutches for 8 months and helped me with my immune system and digestive issues (through adjustments, real nutrition, probiotics, and fermented foods).  Today i feel like it is my duty to pay it forward and teach people real health and how to get well from the inside out with real food and real healthcare.

Please tell us anything more you would like to share about your practice:

We specialize in spinal correction and take a holistic approach to getting our patients healthy.  Our practice stands out because we take pride in working with advanced cases and people who have lost hope.  Rather than chasing pain we focus on getting to the cause of the problem.  Through this we are able to get people well when they thought surgery or a life of medication was their only option.

In the past year alone we have had several people who have prevented and even canceled surgeries by improving function and getting to the cause of the problem.
