Chiropractic Care Saved My Life!”

At the age of 5, I fell from 8 feet and landed on top of my head. It was a miracle I didn’t die on impact. My mother took me to my medical doctor who told me I had a mild concussion and would be fine.

My Health Declined

All of the sudden, my health began rapidly declining. I had headaches all of the time, behavioural changes and vomited daily. At that time, there was no clear medical diagnosis but had there been, I likely would have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

A friend of the family recommended chiropractic care. My mother and father were already receiving care but hadn’t thought of it as a way to ease my health issues. What a difference! My symptoms quickly vanished and my health returned. I continued chiropractic care through my adolescent years and use the amazing health principles I was taught by my chiropractor in my daily life.

My Educational Experience

I was educated and trained as a bio-chemist, but was unsure that I wanted to do that as a lifetime career choice. When an old friend called me from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, ON, it hit me like a sledge hammer- this is where I needed to be!

During my first two weeks of chiropractic college, I was very confused. Our lectures were about neck and low back pain, I didn’t even know chiropractic could treat that. I was a regular patient of chiropractic care but I was going for overall health and body function, not pain management. I was surprised to learn that the mindset of the College and the attending students was geared towards pain management, not so much wellness.

My Amazing Family

I have a wonderful wife, Kari, she is my rock, the one who gets me back on when I fall off track with my health goals. I’m human, I’m not perfect. I’m finding that the more I fall down, the better I am getting at standing back up.

We Practice What We Preach

We encourage our three daughters (aged 7, 10, and 12) to learn about their health and we lead by example. As a household, we use regular Chiropractic care, Naturopathy, Homeopathy and we instill this in our kids by explaining and not telling, so that they will be empowered about their health.

Our kids get sick from time to time, but the colds are never as severe, or hang around as long as, their friends’ colds do.

Enough about me! Contact our Fernie office so that we can learn about you!
