Dr. Michelle A. Brannick, ND, DCHow to Obtain Optimal Health

I am Dr. Michelle Brannick, ND, DC.  I am a Naturopathic Physician licensed in Vermont, and a licensed Chiropractic Physician in Illinois. I specialize in Natural Primary Care Medicine.

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself, given the right environment. First, we need to minimize the use of vaccines and the multiple drugs prescribed today that merely suppress or mask symptoms instead of treating the cause or curing the disease. We must stop running to antibiotics for every illness we encounter and save them for life-threatening situations.

Many safe, natural alternatives exist that strengthen the body and allow it to heal itself—not leave us more susceptible to other illnesses like antibiotics do. For example, MRSA is a deadly bacteria that is the direct result of overusing antibiotics. Even the most powerful prescriptions have difficulty overcoming this infection. If we want to strengthen our bodies, we need to eat a healthy diet and eliminate all the sugary, caffeinated beverages that we consume and replace them with pure water. We need to take responsibility for what we put into our body if we want good health.
