Dr. Joe began his graduate work In 1981 at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. He chose Life University because it was the best education available. The more he discovered about chiropractic, the more amazed he was at how far reaching it could be. Then, when he began to research nutrition, he discovered the “whole package of health,” that is, removing interference from the nervous system (un-pinching the nerves) thus allowing the brain to communicate with the body, improving the digestive system, and giving the body the food it requires to function at 100%. Along with being board certified in chiropractic, he is also board certified in pain management, orthopedics and double board certified in nutrition. He also has a B.S. in clinical nutrition, is a retired dietitian, an award-winning author, and has been in practice for over 32 years.
