Dr. Kristy's Story (cont'd)...

The injections temporarily made the pain worse before giving me a short reprieve just in time for the next surgery 2 years later. I couldn't concentrate on school. Deciding to come home and pause my undergraduate studies was an all-time ultimate low. It felt like defeat. Like most dark times, they can be beautiful in retrospect. 

While I was home on hiatus from school, I had an opportunity to research the medical philosophy of health and I also compared that to other less traditional philosophies. During this time, I discovered Chiropractic. New York Chiropractic College was less than 5 miles from my childhood home. Through Chiropractic, I learned that our bodies are health themselves and that healing is something that is expressed from the inside out. This philosophy resonated greatly with me. Needless to say, I never looked back or went back to pre-med studies. I enrolled in Chiropractic college and simultaneously completed my bachelor’s degree. All the while, I applied what I learned to heal myself. Today, I no longer have endometriosis or cysts on my ovaries. It has been decades since I have taken pain meds or hormone treatments or had surgery!

I have helped countless men and women heal their health conditions naturally and to find hope in the fact that... their bodies can and will heal.
