Dr. Karyn G. Meadows is a Chiropractor, Wellness Coach, and Health Advocate. She loves to share and talk about all things healthy.
As a Chiropractor, her goal is to restore your body's innate. So, what's innate? Innate is your natural ability to heal; it's your body's natural sense of balance or homeostasis. For example, when you get a paper cut, you do not consciously think heal or grow new skin. No, your body innately knows what to do. Your body knows to send platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells, and whatever else is needed to clean the area and grow new skin. So, when your body is out of alignment (or what we call a subluxation) it disturbs the flow of innate, which can lead to discomfort, pain, and/or disease. As a chiropractor, her goal is to restore your body's alignment and allow innate to freely flow.
Sometimes, we have a major event in our lives that can impact the body on a bigger scale resulting in imbalance, such as thyroid (weight gain / loss), adrenal ( sleep and fatigue), diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), irritable bowel syndrome, stress, and / or cardiovascular (heart problems). In this case, Dr. Meadows will look at the body from a functional perspective to see why the body is responding the way it does. What is the body saying. This is done by taking a detailed, comprehensive history, reviewing blood work, saliva testing, and physical functional testing. After assessing what is causing the dysfunction, Dr. Meadows recommends food-based supplements and lifestyle changes to achieve the goals you desire.
Dr. Meadows also enjoys sharing simple techniques to living a holistic, healthy lifestyle with essential oils and oil-infused products. Choosing to convert to a wellness lifestyle eliminates the toxins we are exposed to daily. She knows we cannot live in a completely toxin-free world but we can control what we expose ourselves and family members to. Simple changes like swapping out your shampoo, laundry detergent, dish detergent, soap, or household cleaner can have a huge impact on our lives.
