MEET DR. DENISE
After spending 25 years working in corporate American and then losing my mother to Celiac Disease, I came to grips with the fact that life is short and I was not living my life to it's fullest potential. In 2004, I left the prestige of the corporate world and pursued my dream of becoming a Doctor. It was the scariest move of my life and the best move of my life! After getting dual medical degrees in Chiropractic Medicine and Naturopathic Medicine, I found my passion! I began practicing in the Western Suburbs in 2013 and have a practice in Wheaton and Schaumburg.
A good day for me is one with the challenges of a hard medical case or getting someone’s pain level to decrease from a 7/10 to a 3/10. When I am not practicing natural medicine, I am spending time with my husband, reading, going to church, playing boggle, exercising, going to concerts, watching movies and cooking (I live in my kitchen!).
My life calling is to educate and heal people from the inside out. I am passionate about motivating and inspiring people to reach their highest potential in life with their physical and spiritual health.

Naturopathic Medicine is the practice of internal medicine using natural resources to stimulate and support the body’s inherent ability to heal. Based on science and “evidence-based practices,” it seeks to identify root causes of illness, addresses imbalances as naturally and gently as possible, and teaches patients how to create wellness, and prevent illness whenever possible.
As humans, we are so busy with life, that we forget to observe the laws of nature as they pertain to our health. As a result, when we violate one of those basic laws or determinants of health, we see a cascade of health issues ranging from autoimmune, thyroid disorders, fatigue, insomnia, chronic disease, chronic pain, diabetes, bulging discs, unexplained conditions and obesity, and mental and emotional disturbances.
This is your Service Description. Use this space to explain this service in more detail.
Chiropractic Medicine embraces the whole health picture of each patient. Chiropractors use a variety of non-surgical treatments such as Chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue massage, cupping, therapeutic exercise, ultrasound, electric stimulation, traction, and hydro-therapy table. These treatments are used to treat patients with certain types of chronic conditions such as bulging discs, osteoporosis, back pain, headaches, scoliosis, sciatica, jaw pain, etc.
I hear your story and take a detailed history. To that end, I create an individualized treatment plan including Continued Care aimed at achieving the functional goals we set together.
Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. This stimulation increases blood and nerve flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body's natural painkillers. More than 3 million Americans use acupuncture, but it is even more popular in other countries. Patients seek this treatment out for insomnia, headaches, migraines, anxiety, pain management, immune support, hormone imbalance, energy, and well-being imbalance.
I take the time to understand the root of your problem in order to provide the best and most effective treatment. Through my years of experience, I’ve found that Treatment & Therapy is a crucial part of the recovery process.
WEIGHT LOSS AND THE METABOLIC REBOOT
What is the Metabolic REboot???
The Metabolic REboot is a medically supervised fat loss program. This program is the fastest way for a person to lose 20 pounds when compared to other programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutri-systems. It is also the 2nd least expensive and is the only program that includes supervision by A DOCTOR.
The program consists of dietary modification, behavior modification and very specific nutritional supplementation. It is doctor supervised which means that you will meet with the doctor every other week for check-ins as well as working with a health coach for daily support/guidance. You will learn strategies to help ensure long term weight loss.
