Dr. Matthew Symons, D.C.
DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC
I believe everyone deserves a chance to reach his or her full potential. Nowhere is this truer than health. Unfortunately, most people never reach true health (and therefore never achieve their potential in other areas of life) because they have been misguided and mislead as to the true nature of what health is and what it means to be healthy. The statistics on how poorly the American medical model of health care – or more appropriately named sickness care – is doing is staggering and pathetic. The vast majority of American disease is preventable with a healthy lifestyle. People need to be given the tools, resources, and support to make the right choices about their health. In its Latin root, “doctor” means teacher, not physician. This is why I’ve spent my entire career pursuing deeper knowledge and understanding about how the body works and why sometimes the body gets sick and stays sick, while other times it gets well. I want everyone to understand that the body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism and that all life and healing in our bodies comes from, and is controlled by, the brain. There is only one way to fully be well, and that is to give our bodies what they need and avoid that which they do not. With chiropractic care, a healthy, nutrient-rich diet, and exercise, we can reach our God-given potential. “Life is our greatest gift; what we do with our life is our gift back.”
