In order for the musculoskeletal system to function optimally, it must have fuel and activation, which can be summed up to these basic necessities: proper oxygen, blood sugar balancing, nervous system stimulation, and hormonal balance (thyroid hormones, testosterone, insulin, etc). This is vital to turn on the DNA to make every cell work!! If the body does not have proper oxygen, balanced blood sugar, nervous system stimulation, or balanced hormones, the musculoskeletal system will not function optimally!! Therefore, they all must be addressed and that is how we achieve maximum results…by addressing the root cause of the interference.
Although drug therapy is often the first line of defense for many people, our approach is to identify the cause of the problem first. Spinal misalignment and/or abnormal muscle function are often the culprit to many pain syndromes; furthermore, we dig even deeper to identify the cause of a person’s pain and the cause of the misalignment. This may be repetitive motion injury, trauma, overweight, stress and/or adrenal gland dysfunction, blood sugar imbalance, hormonal imbalance, reduced blood flow, etc. Our goal is to reduce the likelihood of re-injury by offering a well-rounded approach that addresses the WHOLE BODY!
Fatigue, increased thirst, increased hunger yet losing weight, longer healing times for sores – all are indicators of Type 2 Diabetes. You may not realize the extent of the problem because symptoms can linger for years without enough of a flare up to send you to a diabetes doctor. But Type 2 Diabetes is on the rise.
A few facts about Type 2 Diabetes
- in the next 15 years, the World Health Organization expects that 300 million people will have Type 2 Diabetes.
- The American diet has changed more in the last hundred years than it did in the previous ten thousand years.

Reversing the effects of Type 2 Diabetes
The problem of Type 2 Diabetes
More than 50% of people who have type 2 diabetes are unaware of their illness. Left untreated, the complications of this disease are dire: blindness, kidney disease, stroke, heart disease, cancer, and amputation below the knee. One clue to the preventable nature of type 2 diabetes is that it is also referred to as ‘adult onset diabetes.’ The culprits that bring on the symptoms are largely due to our prevalence of processed foods and un-natural ingredients, such as high fructose corn syrup. Because of the way the body metabolizes the un-natural ingredients, the body’s insulin and leptin hormones are thrown out of balance. This in turn affects blood sugar levels. So, a chain of events is set in place, and taking insulin and prescriptions are not the best answer.It’s important that you assess your symptom levels and take action to improve your quality of life both now and in the future. We know that it’s difficult to do it alone. The symptoms and problems don’t appear overnight, and so the treatment and restoration will also not happen instantly. But help is possible, and we’re here to support you on your journey.

Type 2 Diabetes Testimonials
I found it very hard to focus and I did not have any energy. I am now off insulin, I can’t believe how much energy I have.
I have been a diabetic for over 20 years. My doctor had me on at least 8 pills a day and was ready to put me on insulin.
My blood sugar was running between 200 to 225. It seemed to just keep going higher and higher.
