Doctor of Chiropractic

Meet the Doctor of today

Graduated from Logan University in 1984, where he completed his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Smith returned to Baton Rouge. He continued his education through Texas Chiropractic College and successfully completed the course requirements as a Chiropractic Internist in 1991 -this is a alternative medicine type called Functional medicine.

For my new patient, I want to say thank you for looking into my office. I have been in practice now for over 33 years but can say that information and technology has greatly change many of the procedures we can use to help patients. First, the understanding of the what it means to be very healthy has evolved as the science-base of knowledge has exploded. This requires a radical re examining of the basics. Like the details of what sickness and illness really are. We do not go from healthy and happy one day to sick the next in most cases. Yes, we do have the major accidents and such, but the illnesses of a chronic nature are linked into more of the subtle beginnings. According to the Center for Disease Control most of these can be limited or even eliminated by changes what we are doing. Most of the needed changes for health do not involve a new prescription drug to make our life better (or selling sickness). From the internal disorders, to pain and chronic pain management, like chronic lower back, fibromyalgia -brain fog, small intestinal bacterial over growth induced pain, neck- face temporal mandibular dysfunction pain and migraine headaches. Acquired Mitochondrial dysfunctions type 2 diabetes. Genetics did not magically change is 2 generation and it is more than just the right diet or supplement. It is about have patients who are empowered to become healthy.

How does diet, health, exercise, and pain intersect with today’s rapidly expanding information? The answers are what are missing as a vital link to regaining or keeping health.

 
My Health Care Philosophy:
  • I respect the body’s inherent ability to heal, and to work to facilitate the natural healing process.
  • I believe that natural therapies generally provide the safest and most cost effective way to prevent disease. Natural therapies should be the foundation for preventing illness and optimizing health.
  • I will endeavor to find natural remedies and recommend them whenever possible, and to get to the root of the problem instead of just treating the symptoms.
  • I limit the use of procedures and modern diagnostic testing techniques whenever possible, but use them when necessary.
  • I believe in educating my patients on diet, lifestyle, and proper use of natural therapies which allows people to be empowered over their own health.
  • I believe that every person is unique in the way their body functions.  I will listen carefully to you, my patient.
