When I was just a 19 year-old doing volunteer work in Israel, I was told my mom may not be alive by the time I got back. What else could I do but pray for a miracle?
Epilepsy! Several severe grand mal seizures every day for months, and getting worse. A friend of Mom’s referred her to a chiropractor in town. The results weren’t immediate, but they were dramatic. Over the course of about a year, he brought her back to virtually perfect health. By the time I got back from a couple of years of service with the Baha’i Faith in east Africa, she was not only alive, but thriving. 25 years later, I still have a wonderful, healthy mother, thanks to chiropractic!
A Chiropractic Education
I graduated from the University of Alabama with a BSc in Biochemistry and was ready for chiropractic school. I finally settled on Parker College in Dallas, which has the reputation of being the “Harvard of Chiropractic schools.” When I got there, I was surprised to find out that chiropractic students have to take 4485 classroom hours of courses on the human body–Anatomy, Physiology, Embryology, Histology, Pathology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Pharmacology and Toxicology–more hours than most medical schools!
Today, my mission is to help as many people as possible get their health back, so they can do what they were put on this planet to do.
About a third of our patients are over 65 years old. Too many of them have been told either that they need surgery or that they’ll just have to live with their pain. I also love working with pregnant women and children. The gentle chiropractic adjustments work great for making labor go smoother. And the treatment is so gentle that the kids usually end up insisting, “Me first! Me first!”
But what I have become most famous for treating is herniated and bulging discs. I was blessed with the opportunity to be the first doctor to bring non-surgical Spinal Decompression to Denton County.
On a Personal Note…
I have been married to the most beautiful woman in the world since 1994. Tessy is originally from Kakamega, Kenya, but we met while we were both serving as volunteers at the world center of the Baha’i Faith in Haifa, Israel. We have three super-cute and intelligent children, the oldest is 11 and the twins are 9 years old.
I get adjusted once or twice a month, and I adjust my family even more frequently. I’ve been a vegetarian for a few years, and Tessy is steadily working in that direction. We rarely use over-the-counter pain relievers or antibiotics, though I am not an anti-drug fanatic. We always lean towards ice or heat and natural remedies first, but have some Tylenol in our cabinet just in case. And I’ve been blessed to have developed very good working relationships with many medical doctors here in town, and treat several of them as patients.
I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Are you a good candidate for chiropractic care? Find out! Call The Spinal Decompression Center today! Call The Spinal Decompression & Chiropractic Center today!
