Many people’s lives have been transformed over the years at Vibrant Life Health Center. We’ve had Chiropractic patients come to us with chronic pain and musculoskeletal issues that have been resolved. The transformations they’ve experienced have enabled them to return to doing things that they thought they might never be able to do again. 

We’ve had patients who had serious weight problems, problems with their metabolism, and things that just weren’t working properly in their bodies.  People want to know how they can get to the next level. At Vibrant Life, we’re going to help them to do exactly that. We call it Life in Balance, and it’s a comprehensive approach to optimized health, fitness, and wellness.

Life in Balance will incorporate wellness Chiropractic. Lots of people associate chiropractic with getting well after an injury of some sort, and chiropractic is certainly great for that. The thing many people don’t realize is that Chiropractic is also good for staying well and for keeping the nervous system functioning optimally. As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, everything in the body is connected to the spine. Spine health is crucial for living a truly healthy life. 

The program will also encompass nutritional guidance so people won’t have to guess about what supplement to take and when or how to take it. With blood-based micro - macro nutrient testing, we’re going to show people what their bodies are truly deficient in and what is optimal. People are going to have an exact plan on what supplements they should be taking in order to address their specific deficiencies based on testing and then also re-testing post protocol to verify that the needs have been fully addressed. 

Another misunderstood and misused concept in health planning is detoxification steps. There are many methods related to detoxification but many are actually not effective, not safe, and confusing. The protocols in Life in Balance come from some of the longest used methods in history. Not only will you have the steps laid out for you, you will have a specific order by organ and when to cycle on and off the detoxification protocols. This will ensure that your body will get maximum benefit!

Foods are also pivotal to health and wellness. With Life in Balance a food plan is developed using biofeedback to ensure cellular coherence with the foods you consume. This plan is comprehensive and lists good foods, avoidance foods, and a buffer in between. Within this plan you're not guessing…you know that you know that your food plan matches your body's needs.

Fitness is another key component for Life in Balance. Someone might want to get to the point where he or she can walk a mile at a good pace without huffing and puffing. Someone else might want to gain muscle mass and get the six-pack abs they had in their 20s back. Either way, we’re going to help participants reach their fitness objectives.

Life in Balance is not a one-size-fits-all program. It’s comprehensive and tailored to the individual. A supplement that works well for one person might not work at all for someone else. There are reasons for that. Everybody is different and everybody has their own unique needs. We’ll be using the best technologies and time-tested methodologies to develop an individualized program for each participant.

This is an in depth approach to optimal health. We’re going to look at everything going on in a person’s body and we’re going to address every challenge that might keep a person from reaching his or her goals. We want to give our patients much more than one or two pieces to the health and fitness puzzle. We want to give them all the pieces and then help them fit those pieces together so they can experience true transformation and start living the lives they’ve always wanted to live. 

How my daughter, Avery, got her hair back: A personal Life in Balance testimony from Dr. Thomas

According to WebMD, alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia areata is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally.

My daughter, Avery, was diagnosed with alopecia at 5 years old. Tracy and I took Avery to several medical Doctors. They told us that she had an auto-immune disease, and there was nothing that could be done about it. Avery was told she would never have hair again. That news was devastating! Most people consider hair an important part of their personal appearance. It’s especially important to young women in our culture. 

A friend recommended that we take Avery to a Naturopathic doctor who thought outside the box.  He tested Avery’s blood, urine, and saliva. After evaluating the results, he determined that Avery’s body was not producing HCL and her stomach PH level was an 8 when it should have been a 2. Based on that information, which traditional medical doctors had not considered, we made some changes. Today Avery is thirteen years old and she has a beautiful head of hair. That creates a whole other problem for a father, but I think I’ll be able to cope.

Traditional medicine does not have the answers to every health challenge. Sometimes, people need do their own research and seek out a practitioner who thinks outside the traditional medicine box. With Life in Balance, when patients have a problem for which there doesn’t seem to be a solution, we’re going to consider all the options, including some that may be considered outside the box.
