Herbs & Natural Remedies
Dr. Atkin is a Master Herbalist and graduate of the School of Natural Healing, which was founded in 1953 by Dr. John R Christopher. Dr. Christopher was the foremost American herbalist of his time and spent his life caring for the sick and seeing what many would consider miracles on a daily basis. Grounded in a vitalistic philosophy, Dr. Christopher understood that the body heals itself under proper conditions. Cleanse, Nourish, Heal was a popular teaching of his and through his years of experience, he developed many formulas to cleanse and rebuild each part of the body. He traveled throughout the United States giving lectures to packed rooms where his goal was not to sell a bag of supplements, but to teach principles of healthy living and healthy eating and to teach people how to use the plants growing in their backyards to heal themselves and their families.
Dr. Atkin shares his passion for finding simple ways to overcome the various ailments that many families experience. As Dr. Atkin was studying all of these wonderful natural remedies, he tried them out on those closest to him: his wife and kids. They saw incredible results but much to his dismay, they stopped getting sick! So he moved on to his neighbors and friends. Over time, he noticed that the people under regular chiropractic care who ate healthy, exercised regularly, and had a positive mental attitude, didn’t really need the herbs. His cupboard full of herbs mostly gathers dust except when a neighbor is in need or on the rare occasion that his kids come in with a cough or a scraped knee.
Just as darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, disease cannot exist in the presence of health. At Family Focus Chiropractic, our goal is not to chase away pain and disease, but to create a healthy environment in your body where disease cannot exist. A nervous system free from interference that is able to communicate properly with every cell in the body is of foremost importance followed by a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet, regular exercise, and a positive mental attitude. Herbs and other natural remedies may be needed to strengthen and rebuild chronically weak systems in the body. Just like Dr. Christopher, our goal is not to sell a bag of supplements but to help get to the root cause of the problem and empower your body to heal itself.
Dr. Atkin does not diagnose or treat disease and certainly does not use herbs to replace pharmaceutical drugs. Dr. Atkin is not a medical doctor and will not make any recommendations in regards to your medical care. Please consult your medical doctor before making any changes to his or her recommendations.
