Noah: Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I’m your host Noah Volz. Today I’m here with Dr. Bobby Maybee. He has been practicing for 12 years and is currently in Portland, Oregon and in addition to that he is using his own experiences and those of chiropractors and students to write a “Survival Guide” for chiropractic students and young grads. Thanks for being here.
Dr. Maybee: Absolutely, as a precursor to the show I want to make sure that everyone understands that I am not a guru. I'm not here to sell anything. I’m just a clinician who has experiences that I would like to share.
Noah: Thanks, so what is the survival guide that you’re creating for chiropractors and why do you feel like it’s something that’s needed in the chiropractic profession?
Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I’m your host Noah Volz. I'm here with Dr. Blake Kalkstein. He did his chiropractic residency at the world-renowned Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital in Bethesda Maryland. Where he spent time working with soldiers and helping them recover from back and neck pain as well as other injuries sustained during war. Now he's a chiropractor at Adolph and Kalkstein chiropractic and the creator of Chiro spark.
Noah: You are going to be speaking at the Forward Thinking Chiropractic Alliance conference in June and so I wonder if you could share with students what you’re going to be presenting on at that conference.
Dr. Kalkstein: Dr. Maybee invited me to be the Social media presenter. I think what I'll be taking about, I haven’t really narrowed down the exact details of what my presentation is going to be, but what I want it to be is a way that current chiropractors can use social media efficiently and effectively to build their practice. We have been using Facebook and YouTube to basically explode our practice. I’ve only been in practice four years and when I first started working with my dad, he's the other chiropractor, in a busy month we were having 45 new patients. In November we had 183 new patients. I won't settle for anything under 200 in 2019. I want to take what we’ve done and distill down what works for us and make it available for other chiropractors. That's what I think I'm going to teach.
Noah: Thank you Dr. Ariel Provasoli for being here today.
Dr. Ariel: Thanks for having me.
Noah: My pleasure and this interview is about surviving chiropractic school, but you mentioned that you just got back from a service trip and I wonder if you could talk about the service trip that you went on. What happened? What were the big insights that you had?
Dr. Ariel: So I have been traveling to Jamaica for the last four years. For the last three years I've been co- facilitating a self-care and service retreat with Dr. Tracy.
She's from globalivity and she has practiced all over the world. She had a vision to create a chiropractic service retreat that also integrated self-care into the retreat and so I went. I graduated from school at life West in June of 2013 and I went as a new graduate and I ended up falling in love with Jamaica and Tracy.
Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping Chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I'm your host Noah Volz and today I'm here with Dr. Anne Jensen. She has a varied history in the Chiropractic world. She got her Ph.D. from Oxford and she's published a lot of different research articles and considered an expert in emotional wellness and she's the developer of heart speak, the powerful innovative stress reduction process.
Noah: Thank you for being here.
Dr. Anne Jensen: Welcome, I'm really glad to be here thanks Noah. I know that there are a lot of students who are curious about research and want to be really involved in doing research in Chiropractic or at health or and wellness.
Noah: When I see they talk a little bit of your origin story how you transitioned from a clinician into a researcher and what that looks like for you now.
Dr. Anne Jensen: I was practicing in North Queensland in Australia for 11 years and during the last few years of practice was doing research in practice, I was doing some kind of fringy things and I thought I was seeing amazing changes.
Noah: Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large.
I'm your host Noah Volz and today I'm here with Dr. Ankur Prakash. He has been actively fulfilling his sole purpose by creating solutions for people at his “Living Well-Balanced” Centers located in both New York and North Carolina. In addition to offering excellent care at his different centers he's also expressing his passion for entrepreneurship as Chief Medical Officer of Perform Stretch. I really wanted to get you on the show today because Garrett Gunderson told a story about how you accelerated your success in a really short amount of time.
Dr. Prakash: Garrett's way too humble, he thinks it’s all me, but he did a huge part of that.
Noah: I was looking at your bio and you did something original. You mentioned Wealth Factory, mastermind groups, and other programs that you're part of. This showed that you didn’t do it all alone and that you had coaching and mentorship all the way through. Can you talk about how your realized that was necessary for you? And how you got through the roadblocks to get where you are right now?
Nurturing More Diversity and Inclusivity Within Chiropractic | An Interview with Dr. Angel Ochoa-Rea
Noah: Alright! Welcome to DC2Be Revolution, this is Noah Volz and we're thinking big to live large. I have a great opportunity that I’m getting to talk to Dr. Angel Ochoa Rea and he's a really personable and caring chiropractor; I’m super excited about this conversation. He's also the owner of LGBT chiropractic in San Diego. Dr. Rea thanks for being here.
Dr. Rea: Of course! Thanks for having me. I’m excited to be here.
Noah: Yeah, my pleasure well since you have LGBT chiropractic. I wanted to start by talking to you about diversity and so I wondered what your experience of diversity has been within the chiropractic community and if there's any advice you have in terms of creating more inclusivity within that community.
Noah: Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I'm your host Noah Volz and today I'm here with Dr. Andrew and Ashley Torchio. They are chiropractors and the owners of Pangaea chiropractic in Bend, Oregon. They are on a mission to change the world through education, transparency, and empowerment. Thank you two for being here. My first question for the two of you is about approaching somebody as an individual, as a living being, instead of approaching them as a conglomeration of different symptoms.
Drs. Torchio: The first thing that I do at the first visit is I don't recognize their symptoms because I don't want them to think anything they're coming in with doesn't matter to me. So it does matter to me and I didn't want you to have those symptoms and I don't want your body to be expressing itself like that. I will definitely address it but then being a chiropractor you always have to take it deeper and we, all of us, know it's not the symptom, it's never been the symptom and so even when you look at the subluxation, even that in itself can be a symptom. We start talking thoughts, traumas, and toxins. We start taking it deeper. As long as you can help them wrap their head around the fact that it's all an expression of how their body or their mind are responding to their environment. The hard part is not in the session. You offer educational opportunities or look at how the education process take place in your office.
Noah: Welcome to DC2Be Revolution. Helping chiropractic students think big in order to live large. I'm your host Noah Volz and today I'm here with Dr. Alan Goldhamer. He is up in Santa Rosa, California and he's doing some really innovative multidisciplinary health care. Thank you Dr. Goldhamer for being here.
I just wanted to start off and talk about some of the research that you've done. It seems like you've been busy publishing a lot of really interesting and exciting research and I was hoping that you could talk a little bit about that and then provide any advice for students on how we can also conduct good quality research either in school or once we get into practice.
