Hey everyone! I wanted to change things up a bit this Spring and introduce you to some people and businesses in our surrounding area of Naperville, Plainfield and Aurora. There are some amazing small businesses that I thought you all would be interested in so I decided to meet up with a few and see what they were about.
Meet Justin Coop, owner of Inspired Heath Center in Naperville. Justin's interest in medicine started when he was young, as his mother was a nurse. He always loved science and grew up with a large family. After graduating in 2003, he went straight to working as a chiropractor's associate. He worked there for 6 months and then was offered a director's position at a family practice in Sycamore for 10.5 years.
When I asked Justin how he got into holistic health, he had a pretty great story to go with it: it's because of his wife. The two of them have three children. The first baby was born in the hospital and while they tried to do things naturally they were not happy with that experience so they decided to have their second and third deliveries at home. After their third child was born, she noticed health symptoms developing. Gallstones seemed to be the diagnosis with surgery as their quick and easy fix. They didn't like that idea and decided to find a solution to taking a more holistic approach to it all. They started with a gallstone flush which removed about 25 stones! From there they introduced foods back into her diet and more symptoms came back. Justin started to give her natural supplements to support and heal her gut which also resulted in her losing about 35lbs in just one month!
About 2.5 years ago, Justin reached out to other functional practices around the world and he eventually started his own practice in which he is in now. He likes to educate others through normal, everyday actions they can apply to their lives. He goes around 2-3 times each month to give free education presentations giving direction on how to live a healthier lifestyle naturally without drugs or surgery. Patients range in ages from brand new infants and doing chiropractic adjustments to middle schoolers with focus issues or imbalances in the body all the way to patients in their 80s.
Justin will be offering an online video segment titled 30 Ways in 30 Days which will talk about everything from sleep to digestion with tips, recipes and other natural ways to help your mind and body. You can find his Breakfast Smoothie Recipe here!
Justin showing off their neurofeedback training system which is designed to initially do an qEEg brain wave map to evaluate brain wave activity and then to train the brain waves into a more optimal pattern that in turn can help with ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches, and brain trauma.
I had such a great time hearing about his mission and passion to help others and hope you get the opportunity to reach out to him!
Thanks for taking the time with me, Justin!
