Ah stress! It is the effects of stress that wreak havoc on our body the most. What's interesting about stress is that it is all in the perception of the event. Some people find flying stressful, some don't. Some people get stressed out by roller coasters while others don't. Same event. Different response.
Those events have a typical stress response. Short duration. Cortisol goes up, the stress is over and then cortisol drops to normal. It's how the stress response was designed to function. What I am referring to is long term continuous stress such as work, relationships and finances. What happens in these types of situations is that the demand for cortisol goes up but doesn't drop. Your body continues to produce cortisol until it cannot. Once the precursors for making cortisol are depleted then cortisol drops to a low level. This is called a negative feedback loop. With cortisol now low havoc ensues.
There is no better partner I've found for chiropractic and functional medicine. Dr. Richart and his team are professional, educated, and a joy to be around. My health and overall well-being has improved dramatically since I became a patient. I would recommend Dr. Richart to anyone and everyone
Dr. Richart has been a god-send to me - after five years of self-neglect, I began seeing him for Functional Medicine, and it's been life-changing. His kind, compassionate care and demeanor is so healing! I feel so fortunate to have him on my side.
Dr. Richart has been my chiropractor for several years. I recently did functional medicine with Dr. Richart because as I'm aging I wanted to stay in good health. After testing I was surprised to find my body needed a little tweaking. After just a couple of weeks I'm no longer tired at 3 o'clock in the afternoon my day now starts earlier and I find I'm up later. I wake up refreshed every morning and sleep throughout the night. I'm so impressed with Dr. Richart and his knowledge of the human body. Thank you Dr. Richart for keeping well

I am almost 30 years old and have been seeing chiropractors regularly for my back/neck since I was 10 year old. Over that time I've seen a dozen different chiropractors, and none of them have come close to the results I've gotten from the work done by Dr. Richart. My back/neck/spine alignment had never felt "normal" or "right" until I started seeing Dr. Richart. He even helped my jaw/TMJ issues. His goal is to heal you so that you don't have to come in anymore or as often, rather than wanting you to keep coming in with problems and viewing you as a dollar sign. My quality of life has noticeably improved thanks to Dr. Richart.
I have been a patient for 11 years. Dr. Richart has made my life worth living. My overall experience has been great. He has helped me in every way spirit, soul and body not only me but my family also. Last year I had complications from adrenaline administered during skin cancer surgery. Today I am healthy because he treated me properly. Also from the surgery my neck was misaligned and I needed it corrected. I was so bad it was necessary for him to see me as an emergency patient outside of his usual office hours. I am eternally grateful for his kindness and generosity.
Dr. Richart and his staff are great,and while receiving outstanding care, treatment on a personal level to recoup or maintain your personal freedom. They are a outstanding team and glad they are on my side!
