I saw how Dr. Joel helped my husband’s separated shoulder so when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I called the next day to see if chiropractic care could help me. I’ve gone to different chiropractors over the years but only after a fall, or during pregnancies but never knew about the Gonstead technique.

Before I started regular adjustments my thyroid levels were high which caused my heart rate to be high. I couldn’t even cook dinner my hands would shake so badly! I am a homeschool mom of 3 and I am needed 24/7- I needed to be able to function! I tried an herbal tincture from my licensed therapist but it wasn’t working so I reluctantly went on medications from my Endocrinologist. I started to feel normal but kept up with my adjustments.


Fast forward through 4 months of regular adjustments and medication, I started to feel exhausted all the time and had a swollen thyroid. Lab tests showed that my thyroid levels were low now, so I stopped medications. Things started getting back to normal and then my initial symptoms started up 2 weeks later. I tried my herbal tincture again, and I started feeling normal again! I attribute this all to chiropractic care renewing the function of the organs in my body. My whole family comes to FFC and I am happy to do that knowing it helps us to function normally.
