Dr. Lambert E. Collins, D.C.
Katy Lifestyle Chiropractic • Houston, Texas
Topic: Celiac…The Rest of the Story
Dr. Lambert Collins is a native Texan and received degrees from the University of North Texas and Texas Chiropractic College. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Texas Chiropractic Association and holds certifications in Applied Clinical Nutrution (ACN), Advanced Nutrition Response Testing, FIAMA (Acupuncture), and was awarded the Young Chiropractor of the Year Award in 2007. He and his family have lived in the Katy area since 1991.
“I am a first-hand witness of how effective chiropractic can be. I hurt my own back many years ago while bending over to pick up my laptop computer from the coffee table. I had done this move countless times before. But this time, I heard a pop and instantly, the pain took me to my knees. I was unable to walk or sit comfortably. I was told to take pain medications and to lie in bed for a week. I was never one to take drugs and moreover – I could not afford a week of downtime! I was encouraged by a friend to see a chiropractor. I took that advice and was amazed by how quickly I got relief.
As a pharmaceutical representative, I was becoming disillusioned at seeing patients deal with side-effects while using drugs to resolve chronic issues. The drugs seemed to just suppress symptoms and cause more problems than they were resolving. I was drawn to learn more about the science of Chiropractic, which helps the body heal itself naturally. That day that I hurt my back led me to pursue a new path to become a doctor of chiropractic.
I strongly believe that there is a place for all the miraculous medical breakthroughs we are experiencing in the medical community today. There are many life-saving drugs and surgical procedures available to us. However, in our haste for a quick fix, we turn to these measures much too early. These often solve problems while creating others. Many times, these issues can be resolved completely without the need for drugs and surgery and the risks that these bring. Sometimes, simple and natural is best.”
