Welcome back to The Beef! In today’s episode, we are joined by Dr. Stephanie of Discover Chiropractic and Wellness to talk all things chiropractic care. Dr. Stephanie shares the history of Discover Chiro, the family-run chiropractic practice that her father founded, coincidentally around the same time her mother experienced kidney failure. She tells us what sets them apart from other practices, and the holistic approach they take to treating patients. She talks us through their treatment process and tells us what she considers to be a big gap in the allopathic healthcare system, plus you’ll hear all about the effect of stress on one’s physical expression and the physical, chemical, and emotional benefits of chiropractic practice. At Discover Chiropractic and Wellness, Dr. Stephanie and her family treat the parasympathetic nervous system to help patients move out of a state of survival and into a state of “thrival”. Tune in to find out how chiropractic care can maximize your potential in your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing!

“I have literally lived and breathed chiropractic since I was a baby.” — Dr. Stephanie [0:02:38] 

“Doctor means teacher. A big gap in our healthcare world is educating our patients.” — Dr. Stephanie [0:14:30]

“When I’m adjusting somebody, my goal is to reduce stress on many levels and help get [their] system into a state of healing versus a state of survival.” — Dr. Stephanie [0:16:50]

The core philosophy of chiropractic is the adjustment can do the work and the body can do the work with the adjustment, we just have to let it do it.” — Dr. Stephanie [0:20:37]

“I’m not doing any healing, that's the fun thing. My patients are doing the healing. I’m just finding the interference with the communication between their brain and body, removing it through chiropractic adjustment and allowing a new environment to take over.” — Dr. Stephanie [0:38:57]

“Chiropractic is an inside-out approach to health. How do we approach health from above down, inside out?” — Dr. Stephanie [0:41:47]
