Natropathic-medicine

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM; simplified Chinese: 中医; traditional Chinese: 中醫; pinyin: zhōng yī; literally: “Chinese medicine”) is a broad range of medicine practices sharing common concepts which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years, including various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy. It is primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach. TCM is widely used in China and it is also used in the West. Dr. Jenkins has been practicing TCM since 1981.

Functional Medicine:

Dr. Jenkins has been practicing Functional Medicine since 1983. Functional Medicine uses the newest and most advanced diagnostic lab tests to diagnose the root causes of disease and illness instead of just treating and managing the symptoms like conventional medicine does. Conventional medicine looks only at your symptoms, does the minimal and mostly incomplete diagnostic testing to come up with a diagnosis.  The treatments by conventional medicine revolves around treating and managing your symptoms and never really addresses restoring complete health and function of your cells, tissues, glands, organs, and bodily systems. Once Dr. Jenkins diagnoses the root causes of your health problems he designs an all natural holistic treatment program to restore health and function to the entire person. Dr. Jenkins studied under the father of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland.

History:

Before Dr. Jenkins began his career in chiropractic, acupuncture/traditional Chinese medicine, functional medicine, and naturopathic medicine, he worked as an interpretive field naturalist researcher with the Southern Illinois University Forestry Department. He changed careers when he was faced with some of his own personal health challenges. For three years, he sought treatment for his health problems with conventional Western medicine approaches including: prescription drugs and physical therapy. Over that period of time, his health continued to deteriorate. In 1981, he sought out healthcare from a holistic chiropractic physician and acupuncturist in Southern Illinois by the name of Dr. Don Odum. This was Dr. Jenkins’ first introduction to alternative/complimentary healthcare. He was so impressed with the treatments and the results they provided that he decided to change careers and study the holistic healthcare field. He patterned his practice to resemble that of Dr. Odum’s practice. Dr. Jenkins has incorporated all his knowledge and experience into an integrated holistic health restoration approach which has helped thousands of patients as well as his family members and himself.

Personal Life:

 You can find Dr. Jenkins on his days off hiking and running trails at 8500 feet elevation in the Beartooth Mountains in Montana as a testament to his health and vitality restorative protocols. He is currently in the process of writing several health books. Dr. Jenkins believes his job as a healthcare provider is two-fold. First, his protocols were developed to assist and support the medical doctors and their conventional Western medicine approaches in curing your diseases. Second, his protocols were developed to assist and support your body’s own innate/inborn natural disease fighting abilities. When the body cures itself, it’s called spontaneous remission by medical doctors and conventional Western medicine.
