The nervous system (brain and spinal cord) send millions of instructions down the spinal column and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain verify the body’s state of health. Bulging discs or pressure on spinal nerves from mechanical irritation, chemical irritation and emotional reactions cause an interruption of the nerve pathways. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
A chiropractic adjustment restores proper nerve flow and allows feedback from every cell of our body. A spinal examination by a doctor of chiropractic may detect a “subluxation” before any warning signs appear. Adjustments are remarkably safe and a unique care plan is designed for each patient.
● The body’s self-healing and self-regulating capacities are affected by and integrated through the nervous system
● Optimal nutrition is essential to maintain good health
● Physical and mental exercises are key elements for a state of wellness
● Human relationships are a valued component of optimal human health
● Natural means should be used wherever possible to advance a state of wellness
Nutritional protocols are given using Meridian Autonomic Technique (MAT). Meridian Autonomic Testing is a unique muscle testing technique based on acupuncture points located on the surface of the body. The testing is non-invasive. These points relate to systems, organs, and glands and help to determine nutritional requirements.
Dr. Katie advocates organic, whole food nutrition(s) that are made from the highest quality real foods. These products contain all the synergistic components including vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, amino acids, and hundreds of organic compounds. These nutritional supplements are digested, absorbed, and utilized extremely efficiently. In essence, we are feeding the body nutrition where we are usually devoid in our diets. No one has the optimal diet anymore due to the depletion of our nutritive soils.
Dr. Katie uses Standard Process Whole Food Supplements. Standard Process is a company located in Palmyra, WI that was founded by Dr. Royal Lee in 1929. Dr. Lee fought endlessly against the FDA, ADA, AMA and commercial food giants to combat the likes of high fructose corn syrup, trans fat, devitalized food products, fluoride, and other important topics.

Neuro Emotional Technique
Neuro-Emotional technique (NET) addresses the relationship between the patients emotional health, environmental toxicity, structural balance and nutritional homeostasis. NET helps to identify and release recurrent (stuck) emotional patterns. These are unresolved or imagined emotions “stings”. Finding the stuck memory link is done through simple muscle testing, using the acupuncture system as a basis for emotions such as fear, anger, grief, resentment and many more. These emotions stay with us long after the original event that caused them. By forming a mental picture of the triggering event, the body returns to the original emotion state. Then by having the patient contact the specific body point storing the emotion he releases the unresolved emotion linked to the event.
NET is safe, effective and instantly resolves long standing issues that have an emotional component.

Injury Recall Technique
The nervous system records and maintains memory of the events that happen in one’s lifetime. Often the nervous system will adapt to a major injury and maintain this adaptation even after the injured tissue has healed. Injury Recall Technique (IRT) is an examination and treatment system to locate and eliminate the memory association and adaptation. IRT is a simple procedure which involves the stimulation or activation of the area(s) of previous injury or trauma while the doctor performs first a diagnostic procedure, then a therapeutic one.
