Dr. Currie is currently working towards his DABCI (Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists) degree. This degree requires a 300 hour post doctorate course that includes seminars around the country. He will have to pass a national certification examination and continue his education each year.
He has been attending seminars over the past 2 years. Recently he attended a Liver and Renal Health Seminar as well as a Cancer Seminar. The exciting part is he is able to bring what he learns directly to his patients!
From Dr. Keith Currie, D.C.:
My clinic is a Lab Based Clinical Nutrition Clinic. I look to identify health challenges through utilizing conventional medical studies such as bloodwork, hormone testing, stool testing, etc… Using the results of those tests, I will provide recommendations to help you become as healthy as possible through natural and nutritional methods. You are welcome to follow these recommendations and you are free to do something different. I am simply giving you my opinion as to what I believe is best for a natural approach to better health based off of your lab studies.
I also believe that it is important to understand that the model I follow is different than traditional and conventional healthcare. Traditional lab values are what the vast majority of physicians are going to look at to determine if a patient is healthy or sick. It is my opinion that those values are too loose and by following those numbers many people are in the process of getting sick and don’t even know it. I believe that by the time a person’s lab values go out of range by conventional and “traditional” standards, that person could have been in the process of becoming unwell and unhealthy over many years or even decades.
I practice Functional Medicine. So, when I analyze and interpret lab studies, I use what are called “functional” ranges. Functional values are narrower and are considered by many to be healthier guidelines. It is my goal to help you to get as close to functional ranges so you can be as healthy as possible.
