Dr Gertler Advises To See Him Before Settling With An Insurance Company After An Accident
According to Dr. Gertler accident and injury victims settle with insurance companies too early if they do so before their injuries have been fully evaluated by a chiropractor. He explains that many injuries are latent, and do not fully manifest immediately after the accident. He says, "The longer the patient waits to be fully evaluated, the greater the possibility that the injury will progress into something more serious. Injuries may take days, weeks, even months to manifest fully. It is vitally important to get immediate medical attention after experiencing a vehicle or other injury accident."
Dr. Gertler continues, "Soft tissue injurie including bumps and bruises are often discounted as harmless yet they aren't. Any injury that affects the body's ability to perform at its optimum is a health issue that needs to be assessed, treated and monitored. It is good to remember that injuries don't always fully manifest immediately after an accident, so it is important not to rush into settling with insurance companies. Get a full evaluation from a licensed chiropractor immediately after an accident or injury - because this is key to managing your injury and recovery."
The Benefits of Applied Kinesiology?
Applied kinesiology is a method of diagnosing whole-body health through muscle testing. These specific muscle tests help Dr. Larry Gertler identify deficiencies in body and spirit and determine the best form of treatment.
Dr. Gertler credits kinesiology as the backbone of his holistic approach to chiropractic care at Center for Holistic Health. "Your whole body has to work together to attain and maintain wellness," he says. "Our main concern is for our patients to get healthy, and that's why we take a holistic approach to testing and treatment."
In fact, Dr. Gertler says that applied kinesiology can often heal biochemical and physical imbalances and injuries that traditional medicine and even more conventional chiropractic care fail to cure. The Center for Holistic Health specializes in treating conditions including fatigue, headaches, obesity and digestive problems.
Experienced in Holistic Chiropractic Care
Addressing more than just physical health, Dr. Larry Gertler's holistic chiropractic approach treats his patients' biochemical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. "The term holistic means ‘from the whole,'" explains Dr. Gertler. "Holistic treatment is different from Western medical treatment because it takes into account the entire being, including mental, emotional and spiritual health, along with physical health."
Dr. Larry Gertler is a member of the International College of Applied Kinesiology. He is also a renowned teacher and lecturer who taught at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and has developed his own specialty of chiropractic kinesiology, including accurate and simplified testing for the four basic Chinese body types and the metabolic body types.
He's also studied with some of the best known kinesiology professionals, and he continues to attend and present at seminars across the country. As a committed chiropractic kinesiology professional, Dr. Gertler says he takes in as much new information as he can about new and improved testing and treatment methods.
"My patients come to me because they know I'm the doctor who can make them better," he says. "And that's only possible because I'm dedicated to applying new information. I love learning, and I attend seminars and courses on the newest techniques and practices and then find a way to adapt them to fit my patients' needs."
Applied Nutrition & Heavy Metal Detoxification
Dr. Larry Gertler says there are two problems that cause most patient complaints. "Deficiency and toxicity are at the root," he explains. "I've found that most patients don't have structural problems. Instead, heavy metal toxicity and poor nutrition cause their aches and pains."
Because Dr. Gertler understands these biochemical problems must be fixed in order for patients to experience better overall health, the Center for Holistic Health offers a unique combination of stress elimination, applied nutrition, digestive health procedures, allergy elimination and heavy metal detoxifying treatments.
According to Dr. Larry Gertler, many Alameda County residents suffer from degenerative health problems caused by stress-filled lifestyles. "When your body is in fight-or-flight mode, as it is when you're stressed, your stomach can't properly digest food," he explains. "If you're stressed for an hour or a day, that's not going to cause health problems. But when you're constantly stressed for weeks, months and years, your body doesn't properly digest food and nutrients, and that stunts your health."
The Center for Holistic Health also offers heavy metal detoxification. Dr. Gertler says many chronic aches, such as those in joints and sinuses are caused by bacterial infections encapsulated in heavy metals. "Western medicine prescribes antibiotics to fight infections, but because some infections are completely enclosed by heavy metals, antibiotics only kill good bacteria and your body is even less able to fight infections. Instead of antibiotics, we use cold lasers to vibrate metals out of body tissue so you get better fast and your overall wellness is strengthened."
Dr. Larry Gertler moved to Alameda County in 1980 and has been practicing in his current location in Oakland CA since 1983. Patients say the Center for Holistic Health, formerly known as the Advanced Chiropractic Center, is clean, comfortable and good for their spirits. Free from the rush and hurry of other doctors' offices, Dr. Gertler's patients are able to relax and focus on their overall health at the Center for Holistic Health.
With Dr. Larry Gertler's 30 years of experience as the Alameda County chiropractor and applied kinesiology practitioner at Center for Holistic Health in Oakland CA, patients say he provides the best combination of long experience with cutting edge treatment techniques for lasting holistic health.
