About Dr. Mark Bans
Dr Mark J. Bans is a Licensed Chiropractor and Applied Clinical Nutritionist currently residing and practicing in Austin, Texas. He received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in PsychoBiology from Pepperdine University and his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Western States Chiropractic College. Dr Bans believes in a holistic approach to the body -- that disease is often a result of an imbalance in the body's normal function and energy. This imbalance can be due to an individual or combination of causes related to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual/energetic aspects of ones being.
Dr Bans believes that in the world we currently live in, our bodies are constantly subjected to various toxins and stressors on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual/energetic levels. He believes that first and foremost, a healthy nutritional diet and lifestyle are a basic necessary foundation in order to be able to obtain the full healing benefits of different health care treatments and modalities. Without the proper diet, lifestyle, and sometimes necessary nutritional supplementation, an uphill battle is constantly being fought, akin to being on a treadmill going through the motions, but not really getting anywhere. Therefore, Dr Bans therefore believes in helping to restore the body's basic foundation and building blocks nutritionally, while then employing other healing methods. In this manner the body has the ability to reach its ultimate healing potential for overall health and well-being.
"My mission as a natural healthcare provider is to help as many people as possible reach a state of optimal health & well-being and to reduce the need for prescription drugs, surgery, and other unnatural methods of healing through providing the best quality natural healthcare and education."
