About Dr. Daniel
I’m Dr. Daniel. I’m interested in human performance and health. I crossfit, I love technology – especially when it actually makes my life better. I’m trained as a biochemical scientist, author of scientific health articles and ebooks, a Board certified Doctor of Chiropractic with 10+ years experience including certifications in Functional Medicine, Functional Chiropractic Nutrition and Diagnostic testing.
But above all else, I’m another human being just you. And I’m interested in constantly improving myself.
But like you, I used to constantly feel tired, overwhelmed, cranky, chubby and sometimes unattractive.
In my twenties, I started to experience an all too common sense of discouragement in health. I was fatigued, fat, forgetfull and feared my future because everyone in my family was sick with heart disease, cancer and diabetes. My nephews and cousins were getting put on ADD/ADHD medications. My aunts and uncles were being diagnosed with wierd syndromes and difficult to treat conditions. It seemed like everyone around me was taking Prozac or some “anxiety” miracle pill. And even though I knew a lot about biochemistry, pharmacology, genetics and pathology- I was hopeless when it came to health because none of that was working.
Then one day while studying in the libarary it hit me. Every year our great nation was graduating more doctors, building more hospitals, creating more drugs and funding more research than ever before, yet as a species, humans continued to get more sick.
So I decided to switch gears, pulled out of my PhD program and pursued studies in human health, nutrition and fitness (rather than disease). I soon discovered that no amount of medicine could have ever made my body healthy. I discovered that it is possible to achieve Health Without a Prescription.
That one concept not only helped myself achieve a higher level of health than ever before, but now we’ve reached over 10,000+ people who are living better lives, equipped with the knowledge to continue getting better.
As a functional medicine doctor, my goal is to simply help you be the absolute best version of yourself.

I’m a Chiropractor, but I don’t simply treat Back Problems.
I don’t even consider myself an “Alternative Medicine” doctor. I specialize in functional medicine root cause analysis because I know – and medical research shows – that the greatest health transformations occur when you address the root cause, not signs or symptoms.
So rather than treating symptoms or “health problems”, I treat people – humans. I treat men. I treat woman and their children. Sometimes my treatments consist of prescribing walks in the woods or reducing exercise. Sometimes my treatments involve prescribing supplements or botanicals that fill the nutritional gaps that you might have. Other times I prescribe specific diets & food programs to address your personal sensitivities or genetics. Often I prescribe all of the above. But most importantly, my prescriptions depend on your unique context, physiology, complexities and genetic makeup.
My mission – as a doctor and in life – is to help people achieve High Performance Health without having to rely on drugs or surgery. That means getting your weight to where it needs to be, boost your energy levels and maximizing personal productivity.
I’m Dr. Daniel, and I’m here to help.
