“When working with a patient, I continually strive to find the causes of their ailment. Some causes are difficult to find or unknown, leading us to consider how one can heal. Body, mind, and spirit are all considered when reestablishing the basis for them to return to health. Thinking out of the box and in the box to figure out how you got sick and what we can do to help you heal.” — Dr. Chris Holder
