A Chiropractor's View of Nutritional Counseling and Functional Medicine:

How nutrition and chiropractic can heal your body. -Dr. Valerie Girard, Chiropractor, Santa Barbara.

 

After determining the underlying causes of chronic health issues, said health concerns often can be treated with nutritional, dietary and lifestyle changes through functional medicine.

What is Functional Medicine?

 

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of a disease or ongoing health issue rather than the symptom itself. Dr. Girard analyzes her patient's overall health by taking a detailed history, often analyzing detailed, thorough blood tests and other tests, analyzes lifestyle, environmental surroundings and other contributing factors to determine the underlying causes of chronic conditions. These are science based facts that indicate the source of the chronic issues. These imbalances are often treated with specific nutritional protocols, energetic medicine, clearing, dietary changes and other effective protocols. 

As a Santa Barbara family chiropractor, Dr. Girard has utilized functional medicine and nutritional counseling for nearly thirty years to assist her patients in their healing process. In addition to utilizing blood work and symptoms analysis, she employs a strong intuitive process to assess her patient’s exact nutritional needs to correct any underlying deficiencies that can cause chronic and long term health issues.  She has studied with some of chiropractic’s finest and has developed nutritional protocols and treatments for the following:

  • Hypoglycemia

  • Allergies

  • Acute and chronic infection (non emergency)

  • Adrenal insufficiency

  • Menopause

  • Bowel Imbalances

  • Immune enhancement

  • Stress

  • Fatigue

  • Recovery from surgery

  • Sports injuries

 

Dr. Girard has spent over twenty-five years researching and developing this unique and powerful form of energetic healing called PanHarmonic Healing. This, in tandem with nutritional support and chiropractic care, has  the capacity to heal the physical, emotional and mental body with a succinct and elegant process. It is both diagnostic and treatment oriented and has provided many with a healing solution to their health issues. It is the perfect adjunct to nutritional intervention as it prepares the body to heal itself.

I am here to help you as your journey back to health should not be alone.
