Our Unique Approach at HG Wellness

Addressing the Physical Cause

The spine protects the brain and spinal cord. More accurately, chiropractors are “doctors of the nervous system”, not “neck and back doctors”. The foundation of health is the balance and integrity of the nervous system. It is the master controller of every cell, organ, and tissue in the body. The brain sends messages to the body via the spinal cord and nerves, telling everything what to do. You do not even have to consciously think about beating your heart or blinking your eyes! If there is interference to this system, much like static over a cell phone with limited coverage, the messages will be unclear and ineffective. Through gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Drake will assess when and where to adjust so the body can then work the way it was designed

Addressing the Physiological Cause

Dr. Drake uses a system of analysis called Biosequencing, that uses the body’s acupuncture points.  “The sequence of healing is extremely important”, says Dr. Drake. “I do not adjust the same area over and over again. I expect the body to hold the adjustment. The organs, tissues, and muscles should be healthy enough to support the adjustment. We support physiology using the best homeopathic remedies in the world. She is able to determine accurately where the body is blocked or imbalanced using this whole body approach. “True healing is about trusting the body’s wisdom.”

Addressing the Emotional Cause

We live in a negative world that takes its toll on our emotional health and stability. We live in a fast-paced, tension-filled society.  We can feel worried, stress or anxiety about the economy, politics, war and terrorism, our family members, our job, etc. Forbes recently reported that 83 percent of working adults in the United States say they are stressed about their job. These stresses are longer lasting than ever before and fatigue the body.  If you have ever been in a tense or emotional situation (worry, fear, anger, etc.), you can remember how the muscles in the back of your neck and across your shoulders tightened.  This muscle tension can cause a vertebra to subluxate.

Lifestyle Evaluation and Advice

Many of our patients come to see our office to address a specific symptom such as acute or chronic back pain, digestive or hormone issues or headaches. While Dr. Drake will address each patient’s specific concerns with the correct care approach, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach their wellness goals.

We hold monthly workshops on meditation and mind-body techniques to alleviate and manage stress.

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal, we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At HG Wellness, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.

Homeopathy and Core Supplements

Always wanting to provide patients with the highest quality services and products, Dr. Drake only uses the best and highest quality homeopathics available,  HumanKind. With homeopathy, there are no side effects– you can’t become addicted to them or overdose on them. Plus, there are no contraindications. The homeopathic products are so safe that they can be used on infants and pregnant women. She recommends that patients take three products every day to enhance health: probiotics, a whole food produce-based product, like JuicePlus+, and fish oil.
