Specializing in helping patients become as healthy as possible.
Thanks for visiting my website. I’m Dr. Keith Currie. My path in life is an unconventional one. My first life memory is when I was 6 months old in the hospital. I was in a tent. A sterile environment where doctors would reach in and handle me. According to my Mom, I was very sick and almost died. She was amazed when I told her that I remembered this.
I didn’t start out life with the intention of becoming a doctor. I was actually a prodigy on the trombone. I know it sounds funny, but it is what it is. So, I did what seemed would be natural and first attended college on a full music scholarship in 1989. Ultimately, I knew that I wanted something different out of life. It was at that point that I entered the United States Air Force. There. I completed a successful 4-year tour of duty.
After military service, I enrolled in Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. It was during that time that I became interested in natural healthcare. As a pre-med student, I could see and understand how the body can heal and repair itself when the underlying causes of disease are identified.
I began to feel frustrated as I learned more about the prescription based healthcare model and how it only treats symptoms through using chemicals called “medicine”. Chemicals that when taken over time, often lead to other symptoms and illnesses. I knew that there had to be a better way. I enrolled in Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO where I learned about how the body can heal itself from the inside out. It’s called the “Innate Capability” of the body.
*Side Note – Proof of this “Innate Capability” (that we all have) is that when you get a cut on your finger, it bleeds. Eventually, it stops bleeding and forms a scab. After that, the skin starts growing back together and after weeks, months, or years, you never even knew that you had the cut. That is just one example of the body’s ability to heal and repair itself.
After completing my chiropractic doctoral studies, I continued my education and research. I have attended over 900 hours of post-doctorate classes in natural healthcare. I’ve also spent countless hours reading and researching. My 20 year career has focused on helping people regain their lost quality of life and get healthier through natural methods.
The body can heal and repair itself. As a “Doctor of Cause”, I do the appropriate testing to formulate my workup for a patient. Once the testing is received, I analyze and interpret the test results and create customized and individualized treatment plans for my patients. I also enjoy spending quality time with my patients and work to educate them on why their body is sick and what the game plan is to lead them to recovery.
No matter what part of the world we are from, we all live in a toxic environment. More than ever, we’re exposed to many chemicals and pollutants. Toxins are in our diet, pillows, water, fuel, air, laundry detergent, etc… It’s not getting any better. It’s only getting worse. That’s why it’s important to understand what these toxins are doing to the body and what to do to try to limit their damaging effects.
There are many toxic and harmful elements. Everything you touch, taste, and breathe has toxins. Your liver attempts to detoxify this harm from your body. Oftentimes, the natural detoxification systems in the body can become overwhelmed and unable to carry out their jobs properly.
Toxins cause body stressors creating damage to delicate structures and systems. This leads to disease. There is also “life stress”. The load of these combined “stressors” can break down the immune system. These toxins affect the brain and nervous system. They change digestion. They also alter hormone production (and use) by the body. It’s all part of the Neuro-Endocrine-Immune Loop. When one gets affected, it alters everything else.
Ultimately, 100% of body disease processes all begin with inflammation in some form. Chronic inflammation leads to localized poor health. “Thyroiditis” is inflammation of the thyroid gland. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is autoimmune destruction of the thyroid gland and inflammation. Type 2 diabetes is severe insulin resistance/estrogen dominance and causes inflammation of the insulin receptors, cardiovascular system and the central nervous system. Type 2 Diabetes literally causes “systemic vasculitis” a.k.a. inflammation of the blood vessels throughout the body.
Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer in America over all forms of cancer combined. So, it’s easy to understand why a Type 2 Diabetic (that by default of having diabetes has systemic vasculitis) has damage to their delicate arteries, nerves, brain cells, eye cells, kidney cells, and cells throughout the entire body. Because – All of their cells are inflamed!
It’s important to root out all possible drivers of inflammation in order to put as much water on the different fires that are burning throughout the body. Running the appropriate tests can help identify inflamed systems and give Dr. Currie the information he needs to formulate his plan.
Additionally, an infection can irritate, damage, or destroy body tissues. This causes inflammation and disease over time. Based on your health history and symptoms, Dr. Currie may recommend running laboratory tests that can help identify inflammatory biomarkers.
The only way to be successful in regaining health is to identify what caused your poor health to begin with. Dr. Currie works to find the cause of his patients poor health and then builds a strategy for them to become as healthy again as quickly as possible (without medications or drugs). Another focus is to work towards prevention of future disease, illness and lost quality of life.
If you are having health concerns or challenges, contact our office without delay. Dr. Currie will examine any case no matter what the condition.
Dr. Currie has been practicing functional medicine for over a decade. He is proud to be a Board Certified Chiropractic Internist. Dr. Currie worked for over 9 years in his post-doctorate studies to receive this D.A.B.C.I. certification. A certification of which only .02% of chiropractors worldwide have achieved.
He plans to begin lecturing and teaching chiropractors, nurse practitioners, and medical doctors about the functional medicine principles that he has learned throughout his career.
His next goal is to complete his certification through the American Clinical Board of Nutrition. This requires 300 hours of additional post-doctorate training in clinical nutrition.
Dr. Currie has worked for over 10 years attending seminars preparing for these certifications. These demanding requirements have dramatically changed how he engages and works with his patients.
