Chiropractic Changed My Family’s Life

This was the reality my family was facing when I was just eight years old-that my mom would be dead in less than 12 months. My mom had a very severe form of asthma, and it was basically slowly shutting her body down, like a painfully drawn out suffocation. It greatly impacted her career and she had to quit her job as head nurse.  The only way she could make it up and down stairs was by crawling, and eventually even that became too difficult, so she had to live and even sleep downstairs. We saw multiple specialists. Countless medicines and procedures were tried, but they had little to no effect. Eventually, it became heart-breakingly clear that nothing was working; we had run out of options and the doctors confirmed this fact.  Now our only option was to wait for the inevitable…we were waiting for mom to die

By the grace of God, my grandma and grandpa (mom’s side) had been seeing a chiropractor for years, and asked him if chiropractic could be of any help with asthma. He told them that it depended on what the cause of the asthma was, but that he often saw asthmatic patients have great results under chiropractic care. So my folks reluctantly decided to give it a shot (they were honestly just sick of doctor’s appointments and repeated disappointment at this point); we saw a doc by the name of Dr. Bambus. He listened, and was extremely caring, and after examining my mom told us he thought he could help. So we gave it a shot. Well, that’s when everything began to change.


Slowly, my mom began to see progress. It started to become less difficult to breathe. Then she was able to make it back up the stairs, first crawling, then walking. Over time, she regained full function, and was able to come off the myriad of meds she had been taking. She was able to work again, and return to what she loved, nursing. Simply put, she had her life back.


Her death sentence had been reversed! Glory to God! Needless to say after that my dad and I started going. My dad’s sleep apnea disappeared, and over time so did his carpal tunnel syndrome. He was thrilled that he no longer needed carpal tunnel surgery!


For these reasons and even more testimonials from this time on is why I chose to be a chiropractor. Chiropractic changes lives! Not just mine, but it can be wondrous for you and your health journey as well.


We urge you to give chiropractic a shot today!



Chiropractic Education

I went to grad school at Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX, and received my D.C. (Doctorate of Chiropractic) in late 2002. I chose Parker primarily due to its reputation as being one of the top chiropractic schools in the nation scholastically. During my time there, I remember one doctor, specifically, that especially impressed me. His name was Dr. Marzban.


Dr. Marzban already had two doctorates, one in neurology, and one in teaching. Through all his schooling in neurology, and eventual years of teaching neurology, he became well aware of how great an effect chiropractic had on the nervous system, and how important the health of the spine was to the nervous system. And so, even with all his previous years of schooling, he went BACK to school to become a chiropractor because he wanted to help people achieve their optimal health, and he realized that chiropractic was the key to that goal. So a big shout out, and a huge thank you to Dr. Marzban for inspiring me to never stop learning!

Away from Advanced Chiropractic

I am crazy about my family! I have been blessed with the most amazing wife and four wonderful fun-loving children – Nathan, Amelia, Isaac & Brielle. Plus we’re blessed beyond measure that my Mom lives with us! And of course shout out to our favorite (and only) dog, Sullivan. Aka: “Sully”!


Outside the clinic you can find us on at soccer games, wrestling tournaments, hiking to waterfalls, day trips to some place we’ve never been or hosting Small Group. Life is full. Life is good.


My whole family and I receive chiropractic care regularly.  We know how important it is and believe that wellness is much easier to keep up than it is to catch up. PLUS it just feels good to feel good!
