10 Reasons to Contact Us Right Now

Irritable Bowel Syndrome-If you are suffering from persistent diarrhea or constipation or you are fluctuating between the two you may be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a disease of the large intestine that affects more people than realized. Most common symptoms are bloating, abdominal pain or cramping upon having a bowel movement. It is often a result of a dysfunctional organ due to food sensitivities, immune challenges, heavy metals, chemicals, or scars. Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be not only discomforting but also embarrassing to discuss. We have worked with hundreds of patients to help heal their bodies and teach them how to allow the body to do what it was designed to do.

Headaches or Migraines-Do you have headaches or migraines at least once a week? There is something going on that needs to be addressed. Headaches and migraines are often a result of food additives like monosodium glutamate better known as MSG. They can also be a result of poor digestion that results in inadequate nutrition for the brain to function properly. Sometimes headaches and migraines can be caused by structural issues which we can determine through muscle testing. An example of a structural issue would a missalignemt in the cervical spine or the thoracic spine affecting the small intestines where essential nutrients get absorbed.

Are you stressed and fatigued?-Do you constantly feel overwhelmed?. Are you tired when there is no reason for you to be tired? Do you find that seemingly easy or simple tasks are challenging to complete? You are dealing with a stress and fatigue issue. This is often due to overworking of the adrenal glands or malfunctioning of the thyroid gland. These 2 glands are best buddies and want to help each other out when in trouble. We are able to provide you with support for these organs to gain your energy, vitality, and zest back. The five major stressors often play a role in fatigue and overwhelm. These stressors include heavy metals, immune challenges, food sensitivities, chemicals, scars.

Dealing with Depression, Anxiety, or PTSD?-Are you struggling with feeling down or just feel the urge to cry for no reason at all? You may be suffering from depression. Dr. Knox has found a number of her patients are dealing with depression due to a poor diet and/or poor digestion. The standard American Diet (SAD) can be one of the primary causes of depression. For example, sugar robs the body of vitamins and minerals that the brain needs to function properly. Refined sugar (the white stuff) also causes inflammation which is the root cause for most preventable diseases. Refined carbohydrates like wheat flour, fast foods, cereals, pastas, bread, crackers, etc are another culprit. Refined grains, similar to refined sugars, prevent proper digestion of the vitamins and minerals your body needs for optimal functioning. Simple diet modifications can help your body get back into balance and improve your mood.

Blood pressure-High blood pressure can be related to the heart, the kidneys, the liver, the adrenals, or the master circulation point. We will check the five common stressors, what people are eating, and take a look at other mitigating factors.

Possible signs of HIGH blood pressure are:

Severe headaches


Fatigue or confusion

Vision problems

Chest pain

Difficulty breathing

Irregular heartbeat

Blood in the urine

Pounding in your chest, neck, or ears

Possible signs of LOW blood pressure are:

Dizziness or lightheadedness


Blurred or fading vision



Lack of concentration


Cold, clammy, pale skin

Rapid, shallow breathing

Weak and rapid pulse

Parasites-This is surfacing more and more in patients due to international travel, foods being grown in other countries and shipped to the United States (parasites are being brought into our country hiding in these foods), walking barefoot, kissing our pets and allowing them to sleep with us, walking in lakes and oceans (made worse if you have a compromised immune system) and meats we consume that could be under cooked.

Parasite symptoms can cause a variety of digestive tract symptoms (such as constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, heartburn), skin rashes or irritation (hives, weeping eczema, acne, itchy-[especially mouth, nose, anus]), bleeding gums, anxiety, nervousness, weight gain or loss, anemia, grinding your teeth (pinworms are notorious for this symptom), sleep issues, headaches or migraines, joint and muscle pain, mood disorder, strong cravings for processed and sugary foods, reoccurring infections, food allergies or food sensitivities, sexual dysfunction, constant hunger, breathing problems, memory problems, fatigue, and chills.

Nutrition Response Testing uses energetic parasite vials to determine if a person has parasites. If parasites are found, the most helpful whole food supplements and / or herbs will be determined to help your body battle the parasites, while Dr. Knox works with you to change your diet so you don’t continue to feed the parasites. This process can be as short as 3 months to 5 years as I have seen in one patient.

Sinus and Allergy Problems-1) Are you finding it more difficult to find sinus and allergy relief solutions? 2) Finding yourself struggling to make it through you day while battling fatigue, congestion, watering eyes, itching eyes, sinus pressure and sneezing? If yes, Dr. Knox has helped many people with their sinus and allergy problems, so there is hope!

If the liver is so backed up as a channel of elimination, the liver will look for other channels of elimination. A main channel source for the liver is your sinuses (frontal or maxillary sinuses and even your mastoid bones which contains air cells of various shapes and sizes that can be affected by the liver.)

FYI-The liver can cause a lot of skin problems as well, since it is your largest channel of elimination.

If you are a person who dealing with allergies, these allergens will be determined by using energetic vials containing foods, immune challenges, metals, and chemicals. Whatever is found, you will be directed by Dr. Knox to start eliminating them. Most allergy cases, need to have their digestive tract handled as well, in order to have full relief of their allergies.

Menstrual Problems-Are you dealing with PMS symptoms, irregular periods, horrible cramps, missed or irregular periods or infertility problems? In all these menstrual problems Dr. Knox is sure to check your endocrine organs (pituitary, hypothalamus, pineal gland, thyroid, thymus, adrenals, ovaries, pancreas) and your liver, kidneys, and uterus. There are many reasons for menstrual problems. For some women it is due to pseudo estrogens intake from plastic use. The pseudo estrogen gets mistaken for true estrogen by the body. (Intake of pseudo estrogen can eventually lead to breast cancer.) It is best to stop drinking out of plastic bottles and stop microwaving in plastic containers.

Another reason for menstrual problems can be decrease fat intake. Good and HEALTHY fat intake has been demonized for years. Even worse is the types of fats that have replaced these HEALTHY fats in the Standard American Diet. First, your sex hormones need cholesterol and where do you think you get cholesterol from? You get cholesterol from the intake of fat! Does it now make sense why so many women are having difficulty getting pregnant and going to infertility clinics (this is not a cheap financial undertaking.)

There can be a number of toxins affecting your endocrine organs causing your body not to function properly. There are 56 various chemicals and metals Dr. Knox checks for that could be effecting your endocrine system.

Arthritis-This is a favorite of Dr. Knox’s to help patients with. As her patients start to decrease the amount of grains they are eating, they start to notice their aches and pains lessen. The America Public is so unaware of the inflammation that is cause by grains and a few other foods. Again what is the Standard American Diet full of? GRAINS, so there is a whole lot of unnecessary inflammation occurring. This inflammation affects your joints over time, eventually leading to aches and pains and joint replacement. We have been told repeatedly this is part of the aging process and it doesn’t help when everyone around you is experiencing the same aches and pains and getting joint replacement. Did you know Dr. Knox has patients with gluten problems who can eat wheat in Italy but not here in the USA. The reason is the USA changes wheat into a new form, then they change this new form to another form, they then change “Another” form to another. In Italy, they will change the wheat into a new form. If not happy with new form, they will start with original wheat and change that.

Weight Problems-Dr. Knox works with patients on both sides of this issue, those who cannot gain weight and those who are overweight.

For those having difficulty gaining weight there is something going on with their digestive system. It is up to Dr. Knox to determine what that maybe. Typical causes could be parasites, pituitary, thyroid, stomach liver, gall bladder, pancreas, small and/or large intestines.

For those having difficulty losing weight there are a number of things that Dr. Knox checks for. Here again parasites could be a problem. In other cases, it comes down to a clogged liver or a gall bladder struggling to work or having had the gall bladder removed. Most of Dr. Knox overweight patients do best with tracking how many carbs they are eating daily and decreasing the amount of carbs until they start loosing 1-2 pounds per week. (Loosing more than 2 pounds per week is not a healthy situation because the body is not being trained to have less intake of carbs while learning a new lifestyle of eating. This is why so many people gain weight back.)
