Individualized Nutritional & Herbal Supplementation
Dr. Christine Thompson, D.C. has found through her years in chiropractic practice that many illnesses and injuries heal more rapidly and thoroughly if specific nutritional and herbal supplementation is included with her chiropractic treatments. While it is true that most people in our country today do not eat a properly balanced diet of foods rich in all the necessary vitamins, minerals and enzymes, even if they did, they may not be getting all the nutrients needed to heal properly. The reason for this is complicated and involves such factors as soil depletion, pesticide contamination, early harvesting, irradiation of foods and the increased need for specific nutrients because of toxic overload and a stressful lifestyle.
Even if you are not a chiropractic patient, you may come in for a nutritional consultation or advice on a particular health problem that you would like to address through natural means, such as supplements, herbals or homeopathy. Dr. Thompson will advise you based on available lab results, medical diagnosis or other recent, valid test results, or she may wish to order lab tests to further illuminate the nature of the health issue. In order to expedite your consultation, please see the “New Patients” menu of this web site and fill out the forms under the “Nutrition & Endocrine Consult” tab.
Dr. Thompson uses only whole food supplements, high quality herbs and homeopathic remedies provided by Standard Process, MediHerb and Energetix. The quality of the supplements produced by these companies is unsurpassed and their processing methods preserve as much of the essential nutritional, herbal and healing value of the natural substances used as possible.
The whole food concept of supplementation used by Standard Process acknowledges that we may not be able to isolate all of the nutrients our body derives from whole, live foods, and there may be nutrients we are not yet aware of in fresh fruits and vegetables. With whole food supplements, vitamins are not isolated or synthesized in a laboratory. The whole food is dried and condensed in a way that preserves the enzymes and provides the whole vitamin complexes in their synergistic, natural form.
Standard Process has been producing quality whole food supplements for over 75 years. MediHerb, known for their commitment to quality, has now partnered with Standard Process to provide innovative herbal solutions. Energetix has been producing quality homeopathic remedies and spagyrically processed herbs for the past 10 years.
Dr. Thompson designs nutritional and herbal protocols for patients based on her physical examination, the patient’s health history, response to specific treatments, mineral hair analysis, blood test results and saliva hormone testing.
Meet the Doctor
Dr. Christine Thompson
CEO and Founder of Whole Health Chiropractic, Inc.
Hello and Welcome!
Please allow me to introduce and tell you a little about myself. I have been practicing in downtown Fredericksburg since 1996. I hold a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. I have a whole body approach to chiropractic and health and always evaluate nutritional and exercise needs along with structural alignment problems.
My method of practicing chiropractic is an advanced and individualized type of chiropractic that encompasses a whole-body approach and an analysis of the body on each visit. I utilize a technique called Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) that is designed to balance the spine, the nervous system and the cranio-sacral system. SOT involves a system of indicators on the body that lead me to the problem area and tell me when it has been corrected. I use the most gentle methods possible for adjusting the spine, pelvis, cranium and most other joints of the body.
I am committed to learning, staying abreast of new information and improving my skills. I have had extensive post-graduate training through seminars in the areas of extremities (feet, knees, wrists, shoulders, etc), chiropractic pediatrics and cranial (skull & TMJ) corrections.
My treatments are very individualized so that I can provide the care that is needed for your specific problem. I am dedicated to honoring and stimulating the inborn healing powers of the body through gentle chiropractic care and wellness lifestyle advice.
Following is a list of just a few of the many conditions that I have seen improve with chiropractic care:
- Neck & Back Pain
- Allergies, Asthma & Sinus Problems
- Leg Pain (Sciatica) & Shoulder Pain
- Ear Infections & Other Chronic Infections
- Learning Disabilities
- Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Numbness & tingling in hands and feet
Plus Chiropractic Care can:
- Boost Your Immune System to ward off colds & flu
- Help you Feel Great and Bring More Life to Your Years!
