The State of Alabama specifically points out that chiropractors are licensed to practice nutrition.  It is important to note that this is stated as such within the code defining our scope of practice "the use of food and concentrates, food extracts." Also it is pointed out that they can practice "hygiene."  Our two main suppliers of supplements are the two most viable manufacturers of whole food supplementation,  Standard Process and Doctors' Research.  However, we have found that other manufacturers have some excellent natural based products that have become part of our total library.  

No other health care professional has it established that the value of food and its supplementation are literally part of their practice.  Naturopathic Doctors (ND) are nowhere to be identified in the Code of Alabama as a profession requiring licensure.   Since chiropractors have a license to treat within the scope of their practice, and have nutrition identified in their scope, it would appear that only chiropractors have asked and were granted that this be part of their practice as licensed and overseen by a State Board of Examiners.

Crafton Chiropractic, however, identifies to all patients that we as chiropractors do not diagnose and treat disease.  We do not treat disease regarding our recommendations for nutrition.  We do recognize the important relationship between health and diet.  For generations, the medical community in general devalued its importance.  They were wrong; they do not agree among themselves, but there exists irrefutable statistical and biochemical research.

"As I see it, every day you do one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself"   

               Adele Davis (1904-1974)
"Be careful about reading a health book. You may die of a misprint."

                     Mark Twain 1835-1910
"People in Third World Countries are healthier than we are.  They do not have diabetes, heart problems, or cancer--granted they do not do well with vector and hygiene related disease, nor would we.  Consider this: they do not have health food stores, mega drugstores, supermarkets, or even Google, or even Medicare!  How do they survive?  In some rural areas of Japan and Okinawa, they live vibrant active lives into their 90's, still working, not retiring.  Some have smoked forever and not once thought about health. Why? 

It is what they do-- and what they do not do, without knowing it.  If we gave them money and moved them here, they too would get sick.  We have known this for years, and ignore the obvious.  Foods make a difference and can even nuture the body in ways that can overcome most problems."


     "I use many tools to learn what best to introduce  as Targeted Supplementation to first deal with the priorities.  This is done with health surveys and a thorough history; additionally, I may request blood work and fluid testing, but most impressively, I use Zyto technology, biocommunicative scanning of the patient, to identify body stressors and to test my proven health library to show how a targeted selection of supplements can balance the body system.

Zyto Technology is used worldwide by a select group of physicians to include medical doctors who practice traditionally as well as more alternatively helping to improve upon their diagnoses and treatment of their patients.  Most physicians are unable to make the investment in this technology given that nutrition represents such a small portion of their practice.   Since only traditional medical procedures are reimbursable through Medicare and the health care industry, patients are treated for diseases without ever preventing  these diseased states.

Upon successful balancing of the body, I introduce the Top Five Core Supplements needed to maintain vibrant life and to offset what we are unable to find in our markets today.  Along with the Top Five Cheap Health Changers, you can resolve most health crises."

Nutritional Therapy

Studies in Nutrigenomics and Anti-aging have produced some amazing research along with natural herbal based products that has been proven to activate positive genetic expression within the cell.

NrF2 activation exists through herbal supplementation to increase the production of natural enzymes necessary in our battle with free radicals.  Without which,  anti oxidants would be useless  past a certain age; but with the addition of certain  herbal combinations, you can supercharge your body's own  innate ability to adapt by positively influencing your own nuclear makeup.  Amazing!  Only through nutritional therapy can this be done where drugs have been found to be useless and harmful.

From The China Study, the most revolutionary nonbiased study of the importance of diet on health.

"I propose to do nothing less than redefine what we think of as good nutrition.  You need to know the truth about food, and why eating the right way can save your life."

" a taxpayer who foots the bill for research and health policy in American, you deserve to know that many of the common notions you have been told about food, heallth and disease are wrong."
