Dr. Glen Reed’s Philosophy on Health
Human beings possess remarkable potential, and the best doctor is the one that lies within. Our bodies are absolute miracles of design, perfectly fashioned to serve us and allow for our true inborn potential to express itself. As a chiropractor, I do not remove, add, or modify anything to this design – rather, I assist in removing the plethora of physical, nutritional, and mental-emotional stressors that exist in our world to nourish, promote, and sustain it so we can enjoy genuine wellness. Healthcare, as it says in the word, should first and foremost be about caring. I love to ask about my patients’ lives and how they work, play, eat, and move through their day as this plays a huge part in the prevention aspect of our care.
Dr. Glen Reed’s Specializations and Interests
I take patient history and diagnosis seriously to develop a full care plan specific to their needs. I love presenting different options for care and empowering patients to choose what works best for them. By involving patients in the decision-making process, they take control of their health. Our clinic takes pride in personalizing care by understanding patients’ whole scope of life, including their mental, emotional, work, and lifestyle factors. We mesh the ideal plan with the ideal plan for them, making it specific and personal – creating an environment that I couldn’t imagine being any better!
Dr. Glen Reed’s Life Priorities
When it comes to my personal life, I always keep family, faith, and chiropractic care at the forefront. I strive to nurture strong relationships with my loved ones, deepen my spiritual connection, and prioritize my physical health through chiropractic adjustments and complementary therapies. My priorities of family, faith, and the chiropractic lifestyle frame all of my activities – from volunteering at my church, building our family’s self-sustainable food forest, helping to coach my kid’s sports, or hunting for my family’s food. By maintaining this balanced approach to life that involves my family, faith, and a healthy lifestyle, I’m able to stay happy and healthy in the long run.
