Dr. Miller — My Guiding Philosophy
After my first 10 years in practice — I graduated in 1988 from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic — I was not satisfied with the results my patients were getting. They were coming back with the same problems or complaints on a weekly basis. I felt like a Band-Aid.
I was using nutrition at the time but there was no rhyme or reason to supplementation. I could see two or more patients with the same complaint and one would benefit from the nutrition and the others would not. It wasn’t until the Food Enzyme Institute and the work of Dr. Howard Loomis, Jr., entered my life that I was introduced to a scientifically based, reproducible method for determining underlying nutritional and/or enzyme deficiency.
I began practicing Enzyme Nutrition exclusively four years ago and have never looked back. I have had consistent results with this addition to my practice. This method is not a “this-or-that” approach. It addresses both the anatomy and physiology (chiropractic and nutrition) of each individual patient.
To begin, I examine posture, range of motion and functional movements/strength (this is the chiro part). If the patient does not show improvement based on my best clinical judgement then I additionally use palpation, patient survey, urine and blood lab work to determine underlying nutritional deficiencies that are resulting in constant re-occurrence. I am often told by new patients that they have never had an exam like mine.
