Health is a decision, not an event. It starts with what is right with you, not what is wrong with you. Your thoughts will create your reality, so make the good ones outweigh the bad ones. As Dr. Seuss wrote, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to change, it’s not.”
Your nervous system controls every thought, movement and sensation you have. When you feel something is wrong with you, it is because that is the message your nervous system receives and repeats to your conscious mind. When you are ready to take what is right with you, amplify that with a whole lot caring; then I am ready to help you rehabilitate your nervous system. The Brain and the spine have amazing recuperative powers. They are the keys to wellness.
I am Dr. Pat Dougherty DC. I’ve been a holistic chiropractor since 1994 and practiced in Spokane since 2005. Over 1000 hours of continuing education have shaped me since graduation. Patients are also my teachers. I’m always becoming a better chiropractor.thanks to patients and my studies.
The heart and soul of chiropractic is the chiropractic adjustment. Our world is pathologically stressful. People often need more than adjustments in order to optimize their health. I have studied nutrition and other lifestyle factors that allow me to function as a holistic chiropractor. I address underlying factors that often cause people to not respond as well to adjustments as we would like.
My job is to help people rehabilitate their nervous system in order that they may restore their innate healing ability. Most of the studying I do is about the nervous system and how to help it become more efficient in the task of healing.
Whether you want to get out of pain, have childhood health problems, are pregnant, have a sports injury or just want a want a healthier, happier lifestyle that looks beyond only your symptoms it leads back to one place. The nervous system needs to be addressed. My approach is to understand a person’s goals then help turn on the healing light of comprehension. The result is the elimination of physical, chemical and emotional stresses that prevent optimal wellness.
My mission is education. I want to live to see the world change from a sick care society to a wellness society. My website has an extensive library of health-related articles I’ve written, and interviews. I currently have three published books: Medical Intuition & Muscle Testing, Quantum Energy: The Synthesis of Chiropractic and Reiki and Do You Wanna Get Better? The Future of Health Care. Each of these books is an effort to educate the public to the importance of living a healthier lifestyle. Holistic Chiropractic is part of that lifestyle.
I have lived in Spokane since 2004. Before that I practiced chiropractic for 10 years in Denver. My partner, Sheila, and I are guinea pigs for a wellness lifestyle. We study nutrition, cooking, exercise techniques, science of the mind and more in efforts to enhance our lives. What we learn is passed on to you. We garden in the hopes of having healthier foods to eat. I love my job and it is my goal and expectation to practice chiropractic until I am 80. That would be 2032. With the help of people like you I will get there.
