The layout of a patient’s health is like a dismantled puzzle that Dr. D helps to reconstruct
She is sometimes described as a detective using the patient’s previous and present history, lifestyle, habits, diet preference etc. to establish a baseline.
Some of the tools Dr. D may be using are
Laboratory evaluation such as specialized urinary testing (to detect stress maladaptation)
Blood analysis for nutritional assessment and prevention. She also uses specimen collection to rule deep or hidden gut disturbances. She believes that gut issues may play a major role in the impact on all other systems (inflammation, autoimmune response, stress maladaptation).
She might use a specific Applied Kinesiology testing method to prioritize the care for the patient and recommend associated protocols for each individual.
As a Chiropractic Physician she believes that the spinal integrity promotes the body’s own healing processes. She lived it as a child every day of her life until now. She compares the spinal cord to a super information highway facilitating communication between the brain and the parts. The information from the parts (extremities, internal organs, the skin etc.) can then relay clearer message to the brain of its needs, so the proper dispatch can be done and balancing (healing) can take place.
