Dr. Richard Guerreso

As a health care practitioner, I believe that personalized immediate and preventive care is of the utmost importance in helping people with all conditions achieve their health goals. My 10 years in pharmacy and 24 years as a doctor of chiropractic have given me the incite as to how to incorporate all the science on medicine, chiropractic functional medicine and physical therapy in a patient-centered approach to healing that is tailored to the extraordinarily unique needs of those who seek my service. With chiropractic I have been able to eliminate suffering for a wide range of conditions, especially numbness and tingling in the arms, hands or legs and feet from herniated discs in the neck or lower back. TMJ pain and dysfunction as well as headaches have also responded very well to our care.

Because beliefs, attitudes, and motivations can all play a major role in overall Wellness, I examine and include the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of all of my patients in order to make a more holistic and accurate diagnosis. My devotion to good health and the reduction of pain from injury or life is the basis and primary focus of my practice. I value the trust and confidence of my patients with whom I work in partnership for better health. Because of that, I find it very necessary to continually review the latest medical research to date for advances in our knowledge of chiropractic, nutrition, drugs and exercise.

Briefly, recent research has shown that poor insulin and glucose function may play a significant role in the onset of more serious health concerns, such as type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol and triglycerides, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hypertension, stroke and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Managing your hemoglobin A1c is vital to long-lasting good health. In addition to the 20.6 million American adults with type 2 diabetes, estimates from 2002 suggest that 54 million adults also have impaired fasting glucose. For clinical purposes, either impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance is now considered "pre-diabetes."

Studies have shown that many patients with pre-diabetes develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years, and are at a 50% greater risk of developing CVD. A timely diagnosis is critical, because progression to diabetes from pre-diabetes is not inevitable.

Experts now recognize that Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes such as dietary changes, body composition improvement, and modest exercise can delay or prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes by up to 58%. In addition to a delay in onset, studies have shown that people with pre-diabetes who improve their body mass index (BMI) and increase their physical activity can even return their blood glucose levels to a normal range.

We have clinically tested approaches to nutritionally support the management of a wide range of conditions related to impaired blood sugar management, but also, weight loss, obesity, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and even menopause issues. These programs incorporate a low glycemic diet plan and easy exercise recommendations for optimal clinical outcomes and true Wellness when combined with targeted nutritional support of science-based medical foods.

These natural approaches have been tested in clinical settings and when combined with chiropractic provide powerful natural and new ways to help you on your path to restoring and maintaining health.
