Upon his return home, he joined the military, competed in body building, and triathlons. These combined experiences furthered his understanding about the importance of not just fitness, but overall health. 

After graduating from Utah Valley University in 2015, he pursued his Doctorate in Chiropractic at Logan University in Chesterfield, MO. During his time in school he realized he wanted to help people with complex issues that had “tried everything”. When he came across Applied Kinesiology he knew this was the best tool for the type of people he wanted to help. Systems Health Care further solidified this by using the principles of Applied Kinesiology, and adding a deeper focus on specificity and precision.

How We Treat

At AVAYA Health and Wellness, we recognize that the human body is constantly striving for homeostasis, a state of internal balance. We understand that symptoms, although bothersome, should not be the only area treated. Symptoms serve as valuable signals indicating underlying imbalances. By following the guidance symptoms provide, we can uncover the root cause of the issue. Once the root cause has been addressed we find that the symptoms are effectively eliminated. Whereas symptom management alone often leaves the underlying imbalance unresolved, potentially leading to the reemergence of symptoms in other areas. We believe that the body is inherently designed for health. Our approach is to identify factors that overwhelmed this innate balance and steered the body towards a state of dis-ease.

To approach the body as a whole we utilize specialized techniques which include Functional Medicine, Chiropractic, Systems Health Care, and Applied Kinesiology.

Functional Medicine views the different body systems as interconnected and uses physical diagnosis, functional lab ranges, and detailed patient history to assess overall wellness. The following labs are some of what we use when clinically indicated: comprehensive blood testing, urinalysis, hormone testing, allergy testing, and stool analysis. After discussing the results of testing, recommendations can be made for both lifestyle changes and supplementation.

Systems Health Care (SHC) is a diagnostic technique that uses functional in-house testing. This includes myotome testing as a biofeedback mechanism for both musculoskeletal and internal conditions. We use this technique, along with chiropractic evaluations and applied kinesiology, to focus on the underlying cause of symptoms. SHC utilizes manual therapies, chiropractic treatment, supplementation, and lifestyle changes to alleviate pain and solve complex health issues.

We believe in empowering you to take charge of your health. We’ll guide you through personalized care plans, tailored to your unique needs. No two cases are alike. We understand that each body responds differently to treatments, so we’ll craft a combination of lifestyle changes, supplements, and musculoskeletal therapies that work best for you. Our approach is modern, thorough, and innovative – we’re not afraid to think outside the box. Together, we’ll unravel the root causes of your health concerns and find the quickest path to relief. Let’s embark on a journey to better health, one step at a time!
