Dr. DeBease takes every patient’s case very seriously and does his absolute best to ensure everyone gets the best possible results. Having to deal with his own health issues years ago, he fully understands how important it is to leave no stone unturned when it comes to helping someone overcome theirs.
Dr. DeBease has stated, “Every weight and health issue has a cause. I want to know what it is and so should each patient. No patient should be OK with simply using a medication, a fad diet or nutritional supplement to “manage” a symptom or weight issue. The symptom is being caused by something.
If a patient is overweight and is having trouble losing it, I promise there is a reason. Every patient has a cause to their health and weight problem. Once I find what is causing their problem, I then create a customized natural heath-restoration program focused on addressing the cause to their weight or health concern. I do not treat disease, or treat weight loss, I help the person create a healthy body by addressing the cause of these issues. I know what it’s like to be sick and overweight and I also know what it’s like to feel great. I want all my patients feel great!”
Dr. DeBease, BS, DC feels that a holistic viewpoint towards health, dis-ease and the human body is paramount. He feels that all the different pieces of a person’s health problem fit together like a puzzle and you can’t get to the bottom of a problem by only looking at one piece.
