Dr. Adelkopf and Chiropractic
Dr. Adelkopf relates, “My career in nutrition started slightly later then my career as a chiropractor. As a young boy, I missed a lot of school from being sick. I was sick so frequently, that it was feared by my parents that I may have to repeat certain grade in elementary school. Over a period of years I just started to not get sick any more. Now this is a little strange and not typical of most stories that you hear about natural health care doctors. Usually they have a sickness that does not go away after every known test and procedure to man, until they tried this one thing. Not me…he got just better…why? This question has fueled my ambition to learn all I could about the human body and answer the following questions:
Why some people get sick and why some people do not?
Why some people get better and why some do not?”
“This is how I discovered Chiropractic. The Chiropractic philosophy made perfect sense to me then and still does today. Chiropractic has helped me, my family, my friends and my patients lead happier, healthier lives.”
“Simply put, if given everything it needs, the body has the ability to heal itself. Interference in the spine from pinched nerves reduces what the body needs to heal. Chiropractic removes that interference, which gives the body back what it needs to heal.”
Dr. Adelkopf and Nutrition
“Not too long into my Chiropractic career I began to notice that it seemed to take longer, with more frequent visits to get the same great results my office as my older mentors in chiropractic got 50, 60 or even 100 years ago. Once again, I started to ask why? It was not till I started to look more at nutrition in my practice that my question was answered. It’s because of the food! The food we are eating today is not the same food that our parents, grandparents or great grandparents grew up eating. They ate whole natural foods. Foods that were grown in the earth, before all the industrial farming, factory farming and food processing we have today were invented. They were healthier and better off because they were not exposed to the chemical, environmental and genetic toxicity effecting their food supply and environment as we are today.”
“We are quite literally “eating ourselves into” the states of illness we find ourselves in today!”
“As I started in my nutrition practice I did what most nutrition practitioners did and still do. I carefully listened to their symptoms in a long consultation. Then I had them fill out a long survey, did some expensive laboratory tests. Then I gave them supplements that I determined were needed to suppress or eliminate their symptoms. I became unsatisfied with this way of practicing nutrition, as it took too long and resulted in my patients taking large numbers of pills at great expense.”
“Symptom Relief using Nutrition Supplements is NOT Natural Health Care it is a Safer Way of Practicing Medicine.”
“Symptoms were eliminated, but I realized that the way I was doing this was no different than giving medications to my patients for symptom relief. I was just doing it with safer nutrition supplements. I was not addressing the cause of their problems, only the symptoms! When they stopped taking the supplements the symptoms came back! In addition, I found that the body needs high quality nutrition support. I was giving my patients, as most nutritionist were and still are, supplements synthesized in a laboratory, having nothing in common with real whole foods. The supplements were missing co-
“What I found was that when my patients were functionally healthy (that is: their organs, glands, tissues and systems were all functioning properly) from being on a Designed Clinical Nutrition program, with quality whole food supplements, they got better. In addition, chiropractic care was more effective and worked faster!”
“This is the whole design for my Chiropractic and Nutrition practice today.”
- Having a scientific system of evaluation to determine the real cause of the problems, not just the symptoms.
- Having the knowledge and clinical experience to create Designed Clinical Nutrition and chiropractic programs that are customized to each individual patient.
- Using the highest quality whole food supplements available to give the body the support it needs in the diet to heal.
