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.

My Path to Bodywork

A long time believer in having a Servant’s Heart, I originally planned to attend, and received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at Wespoint. Upon entry, I realized this was not the path of service I was called to. When I came home, my mother pushed once more for me to pursue massage, which I had initially dismissed because “I wanted to do more with my life than rub rich, old ladies”. This time, to humor my mother, I actually researched the field of massage.

Finding Medical Massage lit a fire under me. Learning that I could relieve the pain and suffering of others by my own strength, dexterity, and skill was eye opening. Between a background in dance and the military I had been drilling in proper posture my whole life, now I knew its medical significance. However, I realized I only had half of the musculo-fascial conundrum. I knew I needed to become a Personal Trainer so I could give people the assistance they needed to recondition their bodies and keep chronic pain and disease at bay in the future.
