Dr. Barbara Mitchem

Dr. Mitchem specializes in helping patients obtain and maintain optimal health through nutritional analysis, education and chiropractic care. 

She utilizes a form of analysis called System Strength Analysis, developed by Dr. Stuart White, and creates a Designed Clincial Nutrition program for each patient individually.

Vision and Mission Statement:
“Improving the quality of life, one patient at a time.” 

Family Chiropractic & Nutrition is devoted to improving the quality of life, one patient at a time.  We provide quality nutritional recommendations and products customized to the needs of each patient.

Dr. Mitchem evaluates and supports patients for functional illnesses, disease, and dysfunction due to nutritional deficiencies or imbalances.  We firmly believe the majority of disease and illness can be managed with proper nutrition through both diet and supplementation.  We provide whole food supplements, herbs and dietary advice and education to allow our patients to reach their full wellness potential.  Our patients trust us to treat them with care and respect, take accountability for our actions, always be truthful, and form a lasting healthcare relationship.  We are leaders in our community and the 'go to' office for all nutritional advice and resources.
