Healing from the Inside-Out
Nov 30, 2019 03:02PM
Dr. Jacob Karl, DC, has been interested in natural healing his entire life. He became involved in nutrition and chiropractic at a very young age while watching his father, Dr. William H. Karl, DC. He told his father by the age of 10 that he already knew he wanted to be a doctor of chiropractic. The idea that someone could heal from the inside-out without the use of drugs or surgery appealed to him.
In high school, Karl competed in nutrition competitions sponsored by the Health Occupations Students of America and won awards at regional, state and national levels. He received a bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences from Michigan State University, and two more bachelor’s degrees in anatomy and health & wellness while working toward his doctorate in chiropractic at Parker University, in Dallas.
Karl specializes in chiropractic combined with functional nutrition to help patients obtain natural pain relief, balance hormones and employ nutrition for anti-aging protocols and adrenal fatigue. In addition to providing chiropractic adjustments, his holistic approach uses many different tools, including muscle testing through Applied Kinesiology, lab testing, whole-food-based nutritional supplements, cold laser, stretches, exercise and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. Karl says that the most fulfilling thing he can think of is helping others live happier, healthier and more functional lives.
