I must say when Dr. Chavez accosted me nearly two years ago at the Farmer’s Market I commented to him that this must be Providence. His appearance in my life at that time was a God-send.
For many years, off and on, I had suffered from sore knees and a bad back. My first year in high school, I began seeing a chiropractor which, at that time, was great and truly helped me to have a normal life free from back pain. I realize now it was only temporary. I consistently lived with a sore back, aching muscles and stiffness in my knees. I would claim that a lot of it was due to exercise since I was a child because I always loved biking, walking and hiking. From Dr. Chavez, I learnt what could have contributed to this dysfunction for so many years. Safe to say that from about the waist down I was a mess. So I just learned to live with it with the excuse that I “had my father’s bones.”
When I met Dr. Chavez everything changed. He explained to me the science of NUCCA and the atlas bone, and how all the nerves from th brain to the rest of the nervous system pass through the atlas bone. When it is not in its normal position it really affects the communication of the brain to the body for its health and healing.
Dr. Chavez diagnosed my condition and within four months I notice a huge difference in my back and especially my knees which up to then were very stiff and sore to the point where kneeling and bending them was a real effort, which caused pain and some people had noticed. I would say within one year I had a great experience of healing and a flexibility that was not there before.
Half way into my second year of treatment I have certainly improved in my overall health and my desire to work on it. My time with Dr. Chavez has been an invaluable time of learning and education. Learning more about how the body can naturally heal itself if only given a chance and our responsibility to care for our bodies.
I would also like to say that not only have I gained my health and a tremendous healing of my little ole body but also gained a great friendship with Mario and his lovely wife, Therese. When you arrive for an appointment and you “click” with someone right away you know you have gained so much more than just a professional relationship between Doctor and patient.
Ad multo annos (many years) to Dr. Chavez and Vita Nova!
