Dr. Myndie Willis
My name is Dr. Myndie Willis and I have been a chiropractor since 1992. I get questioned quite often as to what made me decide to be in this profession. My father, and my partner in practice, was of couse, instrumental. At a young age I was witness to the power of a skillfully applied chiropractic adjustment. The gratitude of his patients for relieving pain and improving their overall quality of life was very motivating. And, as the course of my career continues I am committed to carrying on in that endeavor.
I have spent the past several years studying the tremendous health benefits of whole food nutrition. I have recently received my certification in Applied Clinical Nutrition, which is the science of using specific whole food concentrates to target weakened glands, organs and systems. It is another way I have found to greatly enhance quality of life. I was fortunate to grow up in a home where eating nutritious food was our norm. I think most of what we need to know about how to eat, we all once knew, until we allowed the food industry, government pyramids and convenience to take over. They shook our confidence in common sense, tradition, the testimony of our bodies and the wisdom of our mothers and grandmothers. And now most of our food is processed and packaged and devoid of nutrition. Even if you attempt to eat real food, the de-mineralization of our soil, added hormones, pesticides, GMO's, etc. etc., make it virtually impossible to give the body adequate nutrition. That is the miracle of whole food supplements. They can restore to the body what is missing and make dramatic changes in your mind, body and spirit.
My ultimate goal is to help you understand your body, recognize it's signals and be able to respond using natural forms of healing. Healthcare is entering a new paradigm. People are tired of symptom suppressing drugs that control but don't correct anything. I am dedicated to helping you find better answers and to teaching you how to take control of your own health.
Dr. Rick Holdridge
My name is Dr. Rick Holdridge and I have been a chiropractor since 1978. My decision to go into this profession was inspired by a very personal and life altering experience. I was in a severe motorcycle accident in 1963 and sustained injuries to my legs and lumbar spine that put me in the hospital for 3 months and had me bed-ridden for a little over a year. It was a miracle that I was able to regain all normal function, but I could not escape the long-term effects of the back injury. In 1972 I had an acute episode of severe and debilitating back pain. I did nothing specific to cause it, and knew it was from the degenerative process which had started a decade ago. I was barely able to get out of bed. And, like most people with back pain, I knew very little about chiropractors. But I was desperate for help. I was very fortunate to call the office of a talented and sincere doctor. I basically had to crawl into his office and after a consultation and exam he tol d me that he thought he could help. I was skeptical and honestly a bit scared; but, like I said, I was desperate. This story is not like every chiropractic adjustment but, amazingly, I walked out of there upright and pain free. That is when I knew my path. I wanted to help people like that.
My profession has gone through a lot of changes over the past 30 years. The majority of those have been positive and I am happy to see more people recognizing the efficacy of our treatment. It is extremely rewarding to be able to help people avoid surgery, stop depending on toxic pain killing drugs or just to live healthier lives. I get a kick out of people who tell me they don't ever want to have to go to a chiropractor because they heard it is addicting. I always laugh and tell them the only thing they will become addicted to is feeling better.
