I am the Doctor of Last Resort
I love being the doctor of last resort. It means that you come in to see me and you’ve already had all the scary bad things ruled out. You’re coming in to see me because there’s nothing wrong with you, “supposedly”, and then we go in and we find what’s wrong. Then we put you back together AFTER you’ve already been told there is nothing else you can do. This is why I get up in the morning.
I got started in this field because my oldest daughter was diagnosed Autistic and we were told to join a support group and focus on raising my other kids. Now, she is not autistic anymore and is indistinguishable from her peers… That’s huge!
I do this work because my wife went to bed for two years and didn’t get up and we were told that it was a character issue, that there was nothing wrong with her. It took a lot of work to go through and find out what’s going on. I do this work because seeing her having a life again is amazing. I love being able to make this difference in my families life and your life.
The Journey Is Not Always Easy
Working with my daughter was a large part of my learning curve. It was a ton of work, and I wasn’t just by myself. It took a team effort that worked with her nervous system, her metabolism, and with retraining her brain. But in turn, we got results that nobody else gets. We worked with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project and she was the best outcome they’ve had. Now, they didn’t want to claim her because of the outside help she’d received. What they were doing as a study was simply investigating what their technique did. Their technique was awesome and it had a huge impact on her, but she got the great results she got because we went for the synergistic approach. My point is that sometimes health problems that we face in life are extremely challenging and take an insane amount of work but they are not always insurmountable.
As for my wife, you know, as a Doctor you should never treat your spouse. But since we were getting no results anywhere else I began to work with her. After about two years of this, her body’s autoimmune system caused her to become hyperactive. And after two years of being in bed for 23 hours a day, she started getting up early and cooking breakfast and working out! I couldn’t claim all the credit for it because we’d already burned through everything I knew way before that, but then her energy just kept going up. She would wake up and her heart was beating a hundred beats a minute, and she’d stand up and it was 138, so she was essentially exercising 24 hours a day. We’d been to a medical doctor just before that and they’d given us nothing, so I went to the smartest people I could find in the Alternative Healthcare World. Within 15 minutes the Chiropractic Neurologist they told us that she had an autoimmune thyroid. We did the blood work, we confirmed it, and we needed medical care at that point in time because there was a concern about heart damage with her heart rate where it was. They treated her with radioactive iodine which killed off her thyroid, and then she went from having hyper- to hypothyroidism.
I decided to become a Chiropractic Neurologist because that was the only discipline that gave my family results. Now I care about everything in the body that affects the brain, and I care about everything in the brain that affects the body. I am a Holistic Doctor with a very scientific perspective. I’m interested in discovering how the different components of our bodies interact and how we put “broken” bodies back together. Our bodies are complicated, fascinating, and frustrating systems.
After experiencing first-hand what it took to help my wife get over her hypothyroid problems, I started recognizing the same things in my patients. I brought Holistic methods into my patient care practices, and they started getting better. Today, my practice consists of treating all autoimmune disorders affecting thyroid and digestion. I especially focus on Hypothyroidism, Chronic Adrenal Fatigue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Ulcerative Colitis. I know how to get the nervous, and immune system to calm down and function appropriately again, and I have my family to thank for that.
