My Path to Chiropractic

After receiving my degree, I pursued a career in corporate sales. Seven years later, being on the road led to a severe low back condition with 3 bulging discs with sciatica shooting into my feet. I was on bed rest for over a month, and felt no relief from prescription pills. Frustrated and unable to move, walk – let alone live a happy life- I went to a chiropractor. While addressing other life matters and adjusting my spine, I was able to be up and walking within one week. Over two years, through a series of chiropractic adjustments, massage, and acupuncture, I was able to rehabilitate and maintain a healthy, pain-free back.

My Path to Functional Medicine

Functional medicine has changed my life forever, the more I learn about my body and what I need to do to live a healthy, disease free life, the more I want to share it with others who strive for health. I have had my slew of “conditions” or “imbalances” such as adrenal fatigue, menstrual cycle irregularities, chronic fatigue, weight fluctuations, allergies and the list goes on. Through testing and lifestyle change I have discovered that I have the MTHFR & COMT genetic snip, which decreases my ability to detoxify, and APOE-4 which is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. I have had stage 3 adrenal fatigue, Chronic Epstein-Barr Virus, a sluggish thyroid – which also contributes to Alzheimer’s, food sensitivities such as gluten, dairy, vanilla, pineapple, black pepper and all spice. And most recently a mold toxicity that can aggravate my EBV and contribute to chronic fatigue. I never want to be “labeled”, I don’t want to live in fear of what my genetic code says, I want to listen to my body and give it what it needs and avoid the food and environmental triggers that can affect my body. No two people are alike and Functional Medicine addresses the root cause of dysfunction on an individual level so that we can eliminate or decrease the stress it creates on the body, returning the body to optimal health.

My Path to Chiropractic

My path to chiropractic has started when I was younger with exercising and taking care of my body. I have always been active with going to the gym and biking. I started to learn about the muscles in the body and I was always curious on how they function. I was interested in a field of study that helped people physically, but I was unsure of what to do. I decided to go to school to be a physical therapist at first, but then I had someone suggest Chiropractic. I looked into the Chiropractic field and thought it was a really interesting. I read about some of the amazing stories of recovery and soon after I was hooked. I wanted to be a part of helping people without medication or surgery. This was the field for me. I have always been an advocate for alternative ways to treat the body because the body will heal itself if you give it the proper nutrition, exercise and chiropractic adjustments.

Mariah Mabry, LMBT

Massage Therapist

Mariah received her massage certification from Gwinnett College and became licensed in 2021. She currently works with the NC State Football team. Since graduating school, she wants to dive deeper into the world of medical and sports focused massage and takes an engaging approach to her sessions. She is now enrolled in American Military University to pursue a degree in Sports and Health Science with a concentration in exercise science. Her interest in the bodywork field stems from a desire to help people not only feel better, but to ultimately function at their highest potential and she is incredibly excited to start her journey here as an addition to the team here at Brookview Wellness!

She lives near Lillington with her husband, two dogs, and a cat, and when not working or doing schoolwork, she can typically be found in the kitchen because of her love of cooking and baking. Other hobbies include gardening, reading, crafting, and occasional video games.

My path to massage:
I’d considered massage when I was out of high school, but was unsure of how good of a fit it might have been for me at the time. I started college and considered a few different paths, until I realized I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I decided to join the military to give myself some time to figure it out. After six years in the US Navy, I had come to the conclusion that I wanted to do something that was related to the medical field as the body has always been fascinating to me and I found myself coming back to massage, as there are so many different areas of specialization that can be pursued. Within my first week of school, I knew it was the field I belonged in all long — I had just decided to take the scenic route getting there.

Rachel Baker, CA

Chiropractic Assistant

Rachel Baker has been living in the beautiful state of North Carolina for the past 4 years now. She grew up homeschooled and the oldest of 10 kids in Lake City, Florida. Being apart of a big family called her to take part in helping out with the family chores and that’s when she grew a passion for cooking and living a healthy lifestyle. There’s nothing that she loved more than to make a healthy meal and watch her loved ones eat it as they had deep meaningful conversations. She believes in the healing power of nutrient dense foods and deep conversations. During her free time you can find her going on long walks and hanging out with her friends and family, thrifting fabulous items, creating new recipes, or killing a Crossfit workout. Rachel believes that there is no better way for her to express love but to share the information she obtains on her journey through life, wether it be from mountains or valleys or the world around her.

Rachel has always had every intention on helping individuals experience healing through a functional medicine approach, but she thought the only way to get there would be to go the modern medicine approach to become a nurse and then eventually specialize in functional medicine. She was attending Liberty University pursuing her “dream” of becoming a nurse, even though she wasn’t too keen with the idea of administering unnecessary medications to numb an illness that could be treated with a different lifestyle approach. She continued until her personal health plummeted from the lack of proper nourishment, stress, and GI issues and she had to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. She realized during that period of her life that if she couldn’t help herself, she would never be able to care for her loved ones the way she had always dreamed of doing. She decided to continue doing online schooling with Liberty while she took the time to heal through proper nutrition, exercise, rest, and creating a healthy mindset for herself, during that season she was reminded of the importance and the power of pursuing her passions and love for others, instead of the life that everyone else told her to live. She finds it to be an opportunity of a lifetime getting to work as a CA alongside Dr. Brooke and the incredible staff as she gleams hands on learning and education in the area of functional medicine. Her dream is to not only experience the healing she has been looking for, but also to encourage, educate, and help others on their journey to experience a life of overcoming illnesses. She views health and healing as a chain reaction and act of love. When you experience healing from illnesses that you believed you would carry with you to your grave, you can’t help but want others to experience the abundance of life that can be found as you think outside of the modern medicine box and look at what YOU can do to make the difference through a functional wellness approach!
