Having digestive problems? Trying to lose weight? Not able to sleep? Experiencing back pain? Most people who have these ailments use one of a few standard types of treatments and, while they may experience some relief, the problems eventually return and persist over time. Dr. Matt Chalmers takes a different approach to solving health and wellness issues by finding the true source of the problem and then using a variety of holistic-based approaches to resolves the issues permanently.
Dr. Chalmers is a health and wellness professional, practicing doctor, author and speaker who is an expert in the areas of long-term wellness, nutrition, women’s health, weight loss, athlete wellness and holistic healing.
With a client list that includes professional athletes, business executives, politicians and celebrities, Dr. Chalmers is known for his holistic approach with patients to identify and treat the source of their issues. Medical doctors regularly refer patients to Dr. Chalmers when traditional medications and treatments are not working with their patients.
Dr. Chalmers works with patients to identify, treat and manage a wide variety of issues, including weight loss/gain, digestive problems, chronic fatigue, pain, injuries, celiac disease, chiropractic problems, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis. He also provides patients with hormone therapy guidance and treatment.
Dr. Chalmers is the author of the bestselling book “Pillars of Wellness,” which helps readers cut through the information overload about wellness, exercise and diet to figure out the actions they can take that will have the greatest impact. The book details how to fuel the body physically, mentally and spiritually.
Always advocating for the patient, Dr. Chalmers encourages people to take a leadership role in their own health care. “I always find it odd when I talk to other doctors who hate it when a patient looks stuff up on Google and asks them about it,” said Dr. Chalmers. “When a person does that, it tells me they want to take an active role, they feel their health care is their business, they want to get better and they want to take personal responsibility to make themselves better.”
Also important to Dr. Chalmers is the difference between health care and sick care. “I define health care and wellness as actively working to make tomorrow better than yesterday. I define sick care as having the flu, deciding you don’t like how you feel and not wanting to be sick with the flu anymore. These are two very different concepts.
Deborah Bain, M.D. wrote about her personal journey as a patient through a broken medical system in her book “How the Chiropractor Saved My Life.” It details the problems caused by traditional medications and treatments and prominently features Dr. Chalmers as one of the doctors who helped her finally overcome severe health issues and end years of pain and suffering.
Dr. Chalmers received his degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas. He has a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness, is a Certified Clinical Chiropractic Neurologist, a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner and has additional certifications in spinal decompression and quantum reflex analysis.
