In this day and age, specialization seems to be the norm. However, Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center believes that a broader approach to health actually produces better results. Dr. Charlene Thorburn tends toward an integrated approach to physical wellness, with "whole body" treatment that encourages lifestyle and nutritional changes. In addition to non-invasive and drug-free treatment, Dr. Thorburn promotes healing with small changes in lifestyle and diet that can be life-changing.
We know that life is busy and stressful and that it can be difficult to eat well and do the things that enhance our health. It can be overwhelming to change your eating habits, sleep more, take vitamins and do all the things needed to stay well. We help you apply gradual changes to your life so you can remove the things that harm your body and start putting things into it that enhance its survival.
Assist the body by giving it what it needs to thrive: 7-9 hours of sleep daily, some exercise, being productive, eating correctly, and finding joy in life. Eat simple meals that are heavy in vegetables, fiber, good fats, and some protein, fruit, nuts, and seeds. Lessen your dependence on coffee and sweets. Limit alcohol and soda consumption. If you still smoke, quit. Take brown bag lunches to work or school, and skip the drive-through lanes -- your budget will stretch further as well. Cook at home.
We can also help you find the best supplement for your body chemistry so you don’t have to guess if your vitamins and supplements are helping you. For additional ideas, simply schedule a consultation with Dr. Thorburn at (818) 841-1313 who is always available to help you reclaim your vitality and set you on the path to lasting wellness.
