Testimonials
My wife and 2 of our children have also experienced the benefits of Dr. Steve's care. We'll continue with him, as with any doctor's office.

Tim F. Placerville
To the coolest Doctor I have ever met. Thanks for your friendship and support!" I could never have known how much better I'd feel under Dr. Steve's care! During his initial examination, he explained the basis for why I wasn't feeling well after an auto accident. He said that I was suffering from whiplash; and as a result my spine was misaligned so that my body was working overtime to compensate for the injury. Yet, I knew little of the benefits and sound medical advice offered through his practice! Along with an excellent staff and state of the art equipment, he provided gentle hands on adjustments, with gradual step by step counseling toward one's better health. The family friendly atmosphere of his office I'd recommend, particularly to any family that is looking to improve their overall wellness.

The main difference between wellness care and standard medical care is that wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability. Wellness care does not add something to the system, instead it  removes anything that might interfere with normal function. Wellness care trusts that the body would know what to do if nothing were interfering with it. Standard medical care, on the other hand, seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside – a medication, a surgery or procedure.

Inside Out vs. Outside In

If a patient has high blood pressure, a standard medical approach would be to choose a drug that lowers blood pressure, and ask the patient to take the drug. This may serve to lower the blood pressure, but ignores the underlying cause that is making the blood pressure high, and runs the risk of side effects complicating the person’s recovery. Whether it’s a nutritional issue, faulty control by the nerve system or a manifestation of stress, the medication could decrease the blood pressure, leaving the problem causing the symptom of high blood pressure unaddressed.

The Wellness Approach

Wellness is a state of optimal conditions for normal function… and then some. The wellness approach is to look for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments would optimize the conditions for normal function. That environment encourages natural healing, and minimizes the need for invasive treatment, which should be administered only when absolutely necessary. When the body is working properly, it tends to heal effectively, no matter what the condition. When the body heals well and maintains itself well, then there is another level of health that goes beyond “asymptomatic” or “pain-free” which reveals an open-ended opportunity for vitality, vibrant health, and an enhanced experience of life.This is true for mental and emotional health as well as physical health. While some people may suffer psychological disorders, creating an atmosphere of mental and emotional wellness will address all but the most serious problems.
