Your symptoms may seem numerous and complicated, but it’s likely the cause is coming from only three areas:
- your structural system which is effected by physical traumas, muscle imbalances due to stress and degenerative conditions
- your chemical and biochemical makeup, comprised of the foods, supplements and toxins you ingest, chemicals you are exposed to from breathing, eating and even by what you put on your skin and the metabolic waste your body produces as the byproduct of normal functioning
- your reactions to stresses caused by how you think and how you react to your daily life, past traumas and experiences and sensory information
“Quantum physics has shown that we are but a multitude of synchronized/organized frequencies. In other words, we are a musical symphony physically manifested and walking around on earth.“
– Dr. Sue Brown, D.C. Developer of BGI
Each of these areas is evaluated and a unique care plan is designed to support these areas.

What to Expect on Your First Visit
You are welcome to schedule a FREE complimentary consultation with Dr. Carla. She will listen to you and get a clear picture of what you are dealing with and what you want from a health care provider. She will give you insights into your case and recommend the proper diagnostics to create and individualized care plan for you. If you decide to proceed after your complimentary consultation the initial exam can be performed based on the same day.
We use state of the art tools such as neuroTHERMAL™ Scanner and neuroPULSE™ as well as the reflexes built into your own body to give us information about how you handle the stresses you are subjected to every day. Your initial evaluation will take about 45 minutes. After determining your health history and your current goals, the Dr. Carla will recommend some or all of the following evaluations:
neuroTHERMAL™ Scanner and neuroPULSE™
A thermal scan of your spine uses heat readings to assess muscle tension patterns and will be repeated after you’ve been under care for a length of time so we can see how your stress patterns improve.
neuroPULSETMHeart Rate Variability (HRV) shows us how efficiently your body is adapting to stress and how effectively your body is able to switch from “fight or flight” physiology to “healing and repair” physiology. The goal of our care is for you to be able to adapt to the stresses of your life and to spend time in healing mode when appropriate – such as when you are sitting and relaxing; and to be able to have reserves and to switch into defense mode when you need to – when you want to do strenuous exercise or when you need to physically defend yourself.
A variety of muscle strength and muscle reflex tests are used to assess your myotome and cranial nerve function and your reaction to a variety of common stresses and sensory stimuli. The muscle reflex tests tell us how your body is responding the stresses encountered every day and in some cases, how the available energy in your body is being used to do basic, necessary functions.
Nurti-Spec Metabolic Balance Assessment
This assessment includes a simple urinalysis, and a series of blood pressures and pulses to assess the neuro-endocrine reflex. The results of this test tell us about your adrenal function, hydration level and how effectively your body uses fuel, trace minerals and electrolytes. The goal is to find out your specific pattern of metabolic imbalance and the results are used to design an individualized nutrition program to bring your metabolism into balance. When your metabolism is balanced, your digestion and nutrient absorption are optimized and your body uses fuel appropriately to heal, repair and grow. The result is ENERGY for what matters most to you. You can read more about “What Nutri-Spec Can Do for You” here.
Whole Body Chiropractic care
is an excellent investment in the overall health and well-being of children and adults. The goal of every plan is Improved Spinal and Neural Integrity, Re-education and Enhanced Wellness.
After your evaluation
Dr. Carla will look at the results overall and design a plan for supporting each part of the health triangle – Structural, Metabolic and Emotional/Perception with chiropractic care and nutritional support.
Care plans are designed for a period of time with regular re-evaluations of your progress and goals. The goal of care is to effect changes in stress patterns over time and to build a foundation for healthy living and to learn new strategies for dealing with the stresses of life. The frequency of your visits (monthly, weekly, bi-weekly, etc) is determined by your specific needs and goals, the chronicity of your complaints and other factors such as your commitment to upgrading your diet and lifestyle to create the conditions that allow for health and healing.
You will be monitored and re-evaluated every three to four weeks during your care plan to ensure goals are being met and the proper course of care is being followed by both you and the doctor. Many patients find their presenting symptoms resolve quickly, so regular evaluations help us determine where you need support in the absence of symptoms and how you can build a reserve for the future. You will have access to your COREscore™ report so you can monitor your progress even if your presenting symptoms have resolved.
Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this important health service. We are sensitive to the fact that each household has unique circumstances regarding the fulfillment of their financial obligations. Therefore, our office has created a number of cost-effective payment plans to make the care you need affordable.

"Doctors are taught how to strengthen weak muscles, activate lost sensation and use the bodies’ natural actions, reactions and reflexes to achieve a desired result.

The MaX Detox Foot Bath System is one of the safest detoxification processes due to the fact that there is no actual current injected into the body as with other modalities. The water in the footbath, and the detailed configuration of the array plates, insures that the actual electrical current only flows between the narrowly-spaced plates. This serves to produce these tiny water bubbles that is then safely penetrated into the skin of the feet that enters the lymphatic system.
