Dr. Hailey Heard
Dr. Hailey Heard is a chiropractor and functional nutrition provider; however, her initial career goal was to be a professor of theology. She was getting her Master of Theological Studies from Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University when she fell gravely ill. Countless doctors told her she would be dead by age 30 if her condition continued to progress. She was gaining weight, losing motor control, and had horrible migraines. She was diagnosed with Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, PCOS, Lyme Disease, and eventually uterine cancer.
After a long healthcare battle left her hopeless and worried, she found two providers that offered a solution: a medical doctor that only prescribed nutritional support and a chiropractor that treated her based on neurological findings. She had such wonderful results with these practitioners in a short amount of time. By the time she was ready to graduate from TCU, she had already decided to go to chiropractic school and help others with similar issues.
Not long into her chiropractic career, Dr. Heard was officially diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease. The stress of school and opening up a new business left her weak and tired. Her migraines came back, more intense than ever, and she started losing more control over her arms and legs. Going back to what she knew best, Dr. Heard started getting even more specific chiropractic care (upper cervical care) and found functional nutrition.
This experience is what drives Dr. Heard today. Her passion is helping patients who have lost hope. She uses her own experience as a guiding force. She can truly empathize with her patients because she’s been there herself. Knowing that each patient will always be on a health journey, she is ready and willing to walk alongside them, encouraging them every step of the way.
