Meet Dr. Jenkins

 

Dr. Vernon Jenkins, DCDr. Jenkins is a licensed chiropractor, certified acupuncturist, traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, functional medicine doctor, and traditional naturopath/naturopathic practitioner at the Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center clinic in Billings, MT. He has dedicated his life to helping patients restore and reach optimal health and vitality by expertly diagnosing and finding the root cause of their pain. Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center utilizes unique and individualized test kits for every patient. Once we diagnose the root causes of your health problems, Dr. Jenkins will create a custom treatment plan that may involve many different disciplines including: chiropractic medicine, naturopathic medicine, functional medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture/acupressure, holistic medicine, Chinese herbal therapy, Shiatsu massage therapy, or exercise therapy. Dr. Jenkins graduated from Logan University and Chiropractic College in 1988 with his doctorate degree in chiropractic.

Before Dr. Jenkins began his career in chiropractic care, 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 through 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, his family members, and himself.

As a testament to his health and vitality restorative protocols, on his days off, you can find Dr. Jenkins hiking and running on trails at 8500 feet elevation in the Bear Tooth Mountains located in Montana. 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, Medical Doctors and conventional Western medicine refer to this as “spontaneous remission”. The Restore to Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center offers long distance Consultations, test kits, and services to people locally, nationally, and internationally.

Acupuncture / Traditional Chinese 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. This includes 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

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 as does conventional medicine. Conventional medicine looks only at your symptoms, doing the minimal and mostly incomplete diagnostic testing to come up with a diagnosis.  The treatments by conventional medicine revolve around treating and managing your symptoms, never really addressing the root causes or 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. Dr. Jenkins studied under the father of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland.
