Meet Dr. Candace
Hi! I’m Dr. Candace! For over a decade, I have been helping others live their healthiest life through chiropractic care, weight loss, and nutrition.
As a full-time mother, wife, and business owner, I know what it’s like to “save the day” for others and not make the time to save your health.
Well, I believe that health can be yours by implementing small steps every day!
That’s exactly what I did!
My Health Story
I Was Never Overweight:
Never in a million years had I imagined that I would struggle with my weight.
I’m an ex-athlete who ran track and cross country in high school.
Long story short, I’ve always worked out, ate a healthy diet with the occasional junk food, and I never worried about fitting into my skinny jeans.
During my second pregnancy, I had gained more weight that I expected, BUT I was sure that I could snap back like I did after having my daughter 6 years prior.
I was going to follow the same things that I did after I had my daughter and I would be back to my pre-pregnancy weight in no time.
I tried everything and nothing worked.
Breastfeeding seemed to make the struggle even more difficult.
To Make Matters Worse...
When my son was just 3 months old, my job was terminated without any warning.
I was beyond devastated and the weight seemed to become more stubborn.
I continued to eat healthy (I was actually undereating), work out, and breastfeed my son (for 16 months).
My weight would. not. move!
Uncovering the REAL Weight...
I started to address my feelings of devastation through journaling.
My journaling revealed to me that I had been carrying the expectations of others, in my career and self-image, on my shoulders.
Once I became clear about what I wanted for myself, I started to create a plan that worked for me.
I tracked my food, workouts, and most importantly, my feelings.
On the picture in the left, although I was at my daughter's kindergarten graduation, I was struggling to smile. I remember squeezing into this dress and leaving my wedding ring at home because I could no longer fit it.
The picture on the right is me today in the same dress - without a girdle, more confident, healthy, and aware of myself than I've ever been:
Get Your Health Back!
I am so thankful for overcoming the capes that weighed me down and held me back from making my health a priority.
You may be like I was, tired, discouraged, and unmotivated.
But there's hope for you to experience the empowerment of taking charge of your health – For You!
Along my journey, I authored a book to educate and motivate you to health and an empowerment journal to help you get started on your way to better health.
But, I wanted to do more for women who want health, but are too overwhelmed and uninspired to do it.
So, I brought The Doc Knows to you to inspire you to live the healthiest version of yourself by making small steps everyday.
It's Time To Get Your Health Back!
