Clifford L. Kearns, D. C. DNBHE
I graduated cum laude from The National University of Health Sciences with a Bachelor of Science in human biology and a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1988. I took postgraduate training with The International Foundation For Homeopathy and received a diplomate in classical homeopathy from The National Board Homeopathic Examiners (a chiropractic board of homeopathy) I was an instructor of homeopathic medicine in the postgraduate education department at The National University of Health Sciences for three years. I was a founding physician at The Center For Complementary Medicine, Advocate Medical Group/Lutheran General Hospital Park Ridge IL. Besides treating patients in the hospital setting I was an instructor for the residency education program for the second and third year medical residents course in complementary and alternative medicine. 2002-2008.
I have been using clinical nutrition, classical homeopathy and chiropractic to help and heal for nearly 30 years. With homeopathic training a thorough history is essential. This is equally important in all cases treating genetic concerns. Genetic SNPs are not patients! Patients have genetic SNPs but they have a vast number of factors in their lives that influence those genes (epigenetics). It requires keen observational and investigative skills to arrive at real solutions for our patients. I remain very enthusiastic for each of the patients and families that come to me for help. Doctor means teacher as well. Educating our patients is very important from food and basic nutrition to dysbiosis, metabolic processes/dysfunction, sleep, social, stress, surgery, endocrine imbalances, and environmental influences. All these factors and more need careful consideration in approaching your case or that of your loved one.
