- Are you worried about your health but don’t know who to trust or where to find real answers?
- Have you turned to self-diagnosis, or questioned medication as a way of dealing with pain or chronic bodily ailments?
- Do you want to feel energized and alive, the way you used to as a child?
- Do you like the idea of a health care option which offers a customized program to re-boot your body so that it can heal itself from within?
As a certified upper cervical chiropractor, I’ve helped hundreds of men and women re-establish their healing potential and enhance their quality of life by allowing proper brain-to-body communication.
I’ve found that most real people out there like you and I fit into one of two groups. There are those who are sick and tired of relying on prescription medications as the first solution to their health care problems.
These individuals have spent a lot of money masking the very symptoms or “alarm systems” that are indicative of larger physiological malfunctions within the body. By chemically altering our internal processes with medication, we can temporarily deal with everyday life, but this approach to finding remedy often times prevents us from discovering the true cause of sickness or pain, thus exacerbating and prolonging degenerative processes.
I suffered from horrible migraine headaches for years. After visiting general practitioners, taking prescription medications, and avoiding chemical or situational triggers, I resigned to the fact that I might have to live with migraines for life. That’s when I met Dr. Kim. She explained why my medical doctors may have missed the underlying cause of my problem. It’s not that they were wrong, they simply look for a different set of “red flags” than she does. For instance, they might note fractures or bone density on a spinal x-ray (all normal in my case), whereas Dr. Kim looks for something barely even visible. She detects minor misalignments of the atlas and axis vertebrae. For me, my atlas vertebra was actually putting pressure on my brain stem and vertebral artery, causing poor oxygen transport to my brain. I’m so happy she found this “minor” problem, because since my atlas has become stable, I don’t have to worry about another awful migraine!

My appointment with Dr. Kim was just a preliminary test to see if there was a problem with the top bone in my spine. I had no idea that a trauma decades ago could create a domino effect in my vertebrae and actually cause long term damage. I also didn’t know that the upper cervical region right at the top of the spine was so vital to our health! During my appointment, Dr. Kim showed me exactly where my nervous system was compromised, and what could potentially be causing my migraines and seizures. She was very clear about how the degenerative process happens, and why it was so important to slow (and in my case reverse) the damage that had been caused by an accident years ago. Within weeks, I noticed a vast improvement in the frequency and duration of my seizures, and now I can’t even remember the last time I had a seizure or migraine. Beyond these results, though, is the peace of mind I have knowing that my nervous system is working as well as it can. Being preventive about your health is the best gift you can give to yourself and your loved ones!
“Within weeks, I noticed a vast improvement in the frequency and duration of my seizures.”
I came to see Dr. Kim after suffering from daily migraine headaches for a full month. As a teacher, it had become impossible for me to get through each day, keep my students on track, and have any remaining energy at night. At times, I simply had to turn the classroom lights out mid-day just to manage my headaches! I took prescription medication, which did very little to alleviate my symptoms. It started to dawn on me that my job was at stake if things continued in the direction they were going. Although Dr. Kim said my results were atypical, I have to say I had IMMEDIATE relief after my first adjustment, and no migraines since that time. It’s been over a year now!
“I had IMMEDIATE relief after my first adjustment, and no migraines since that time.”
I have had severe asthma and allergies since I was a toddler. Growing up, I used my albuteral inhaler frequently, and prescription medications like steroids and prednisone. Since being under upper cervical care, I’ve noticed that I don’t have to reach for my inhaler anymore. My immune system is much stronger, and I’ve experienced an overall sense of well-being that I didn’t think possible. I always understood that our bodies are our best healers. This is why, aside from my inhaler, I tried to take a natural approach when it came to my health. What I never realized, was that there can actually be interference to the body’s natural ability to heal. Once that interference is lifted, it is possible to partially or even completely restore health! I couldn’t believe how drastic my results were, just from a couple of Dr. Kim’s precise – and painless – adjustments. I have recommended upper cervical care to everyone with health problems. For me, relieving the brain stem and nervous system of pressure meant helping my asthma, but what could it mean for you?
“I couldn’t believe how drastic my results were, just from a couple of Dr. Kim’s precise – and painless – adjustments.”
Then there are those who have sought out natural methods to get their bodies in working order: Eating a nutritious, allergy-conscious diet, regularly exercising, drinking water throughout the day, and forming consistent sleep patterns. Regardless of their attempts, however, they have still found themselves in a state of discomfort or sickness.
With proper postural, neurological, and x-ray analysis, and a personalized care plan to restore brain stem function, these individuals have a better chance of attacking their health problems from the inside – out, and may even reverse some chronic degenerative processes.
As a leading upper cervical doctor, I know firsthand that if you don’t have a prevention-oriented mindset when it comes to your healthcare, you will find yourself in a crisis situation without the resources, financial wherewithal, or most importantly, the healing potential to come out on top.
That’s why at The Upper Cervical Center, we’ve built a comprehensive program to uncover your neurological deficiencies, and strategically remove these deficiencies in order to reignite and maintain your body’s natural healing power.
When you make a commitment to delve into your health at The Upper Cervical Center, you can expect:
- A thorough postural and neurological analysis
- Specific upper cervical thermograph scans, x-rays and analysis
- A detailed report and restorative program designed to meet your specific health needs
- An upper cervical orientation class available to patient friends and family
- One-on-one support and guidance to optimize your results outside of the office
Unlike other health care alternatives which don’t address causal relationships within the body, The Upper Cervical Center embraces the self-healing properties of each organ and system which are wired by the central, autonomic, and peripheral nervous systems. Our office will take a comprehensive look at your systems and health history, and create a tailor-made roadmap for you to get back on track.
We will determine the exact vertebra that is causing a domino-effect of nerve interference within the nervous system, and address that area with precision. You will receive regular corrections to restore brain-to-body communication, until your body adapts to a more stable and structurally sound spinal column. Once this occurs, your body will have the means to more readily adapt to its environment and operate in the most efficient way possible.
If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, then choose The Upper Cervical Center, and make your first deliberate step in the right direction. The greatest drug store you will ever find is within the human body. Health is simple – it is function. Where there is function, there is a symptom-free quality of life, and there is protection from chronic disease. Though I cannot guarantee your cure, I can guarantee your body will work and feel better with a properly functioning nervous system. Most people are walking around without one, and unfortunately they will never know what they could have avoided.
I have been to several chiropractors in the past for general aches and pains. Although I noticed improvements, they always seemed to be temporary. When I made an appointment with Dr. Wheaton, I noticed immediately that this was not a typical chiropractic experience. Dr. Kim took specific x-rays, thermal scans, she evaluated my posture and spinal mobility, and conducted an extensive health history. Once under care, I noticed that long lasting results did not necessarily correlate to more “cracks.” In fact, Dr. Kim prided herself on being as conservative as possible with the number of adjustments she gave me. It wasn’t about getting adjusted, it was about holding the adjustment – this meant my nervous system and skeletal system were getting better. Now I truly understand what it means to get to the “root” of the problem. By adjusting one vertebra, Dr. Kim was able to set the foundation for my entire spinal column, which gradually became straighter and straighter. Now I naturally stand up taller, I don’t have joint pain, my muscle development has evened out on both sides of my body, and I no longer feel the need to get “cracked” all of the time. I guess I actually feel normal now!

I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Kim after learning about a medical study regarding upper cervical corrections. The study showed that when the atlas vertebra is repositioned properly, it has the effect of TWO blood-pressure medications given in combination, and seemed to have no side effects! Although skeptical, I thought it would be interested to see for myself. Although my atlas was just barely out of alignment, only a few gentle adjustments proved to me that the study didn’t lie. My doctor recognized my lowering blood pressure and I’m nearly off all medications at this point in time.
