Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body is in the process of replacing itself every day, month, and year. Their health depends on having enough of the correct nutrients in balance with the day-to-day stressors. When your body is not getting the tools it needs—and/or getting bombarded by toxic substances—your cells, tissues, and organs cannot properly function; they break down and you age. After enough time, you experience symptoms.
While allopathic medicine is the most effective system for acute medical and surgical emergencies, it has only a limited ability to change the course of most degenerative diseases. A collection of lifestyle effects and environmental factors accumulate over the years and develop into lifestyle diseases, or diseases of civilization. Lifestyle diseases are different from other diseases because they are are quite preventable.
I’ve been in your shoes.
The truth is, traditional doctors do not have extensive training in nutrition. Although they can tell you to change your diet, they are not able to talk with you in-depth about what your diet and lifestyle should be during those short visits. It’s not their fault. It’s simply outside the scope of their practice. They expect you to take charge and even find an expert if you need help.
So most people turn to the internet or mountains of books on holistic health, nutrition and healing—the most conflicting and confusing “do this” “try that” ever.
My Clinical Nutrition program unravels the confusion.
I go to Hands on Health Care for all of my health and wellness needs. Dr. Childers is an amazing Osteopath who keeps me put together despite numerous inflammatory health problems. Whether it’s an adjustment, cranio sacral, medical acupuncture or bio puncture (yes I do it all), I can attest to the top quality of his medical care and his compassionate caring for his patients. I love it that not only does he have medical training, he stays up on the latest natural therapies. I enjoy my visits very much; I enjoy their sense of humor, their intelligent chats and spot on advice.
I also signed up to do nutritional guidance and lifestyle coaching with his brilliant wife Phyllis. I have stably lost 10 pounds in two months. I don’t have much to lose but metabolism got stuck and nothing was working. Finally it is coming off. The bonus of adhering as best I can to her program is that my cholesterol is under 200 without medications! I am ecstatic! Phyllis has been great in helping me adjust to my new status of retired teacher.
I highly recommend Hands on Health Care for all of your health needs. You won’t be disappointed. Bravo! ─Roni, age 62
Lifestyle diseases are a result of an inappropriate relationship of people with their environment. The onset of these lifestyle diseases is insidious, they take years to develop, and once encountered do not lend themselves easily to cure.
We’ve all heard the basics on healthy aging, right? Eat well, stay active, adopt daily stress relief habits… premature aging, loss of vitality, even bonafide health conditions like Alzheimer's, cancer and stroke all have nutritional and lifestyle components. Join my program and get a specific plan to keep you aging younger.
Sometimes a true healing program needs a boost from natural remedies to overcome illness and restore balance. In addition to helping you learn what works, we often supplement your healing program with select remedies, herbs and essential oils and are trained to make sure our recommendations don't interact with any medications.
As we work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and you’ll be able to implement lasting changes that will improve your energy and health.
Each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, ancestral background and even your budget. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!
And usually there are other factors present; factors contributing to unwanted symptoms and that are outside the realm of “diet”. In fact, these factors can sometimes limit the results of shifting to more nourishing foods.
Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
Hands On Healthcare helped me manage a serious change in my body last year. It took the medical doctors 5 months to come up with a diagnosis. Rheumatoid arthritis inflammation was attacking different body organs. Dr. Childers and Phyllis helped me handle this 5 month ordeal with dietary changes, acupuncture, and cranial sacral therapy. Their PEP talks kept me fighting to get control back of my body. They gave me hope that I could defeat what was going on. After the 5 months my body did a rapid change back to normal. I will continue to control the RA flares with the diet and lifestyle changes that Dr. Childers and Phyllis have taught me. I am so happy that I was referred to them. —Pat Moorman
