Meet Dr. John W. Jung
Care comes first.
Multi-disciplinary Functional Medicine
Functional and Regenerative Medicine has come to the forefront of the most needed services in this time of crisis. After years of hard work and demanding studying, I began practicing as a Chiropractor in 1990 and an International Diplomat Acupuncturist in 2002. Due to the increase in autoimmune diseases and new information on brain trauma and inflammation from the Human Genome Project in 2003, my studies continue and bring you the most up-to-date information on immunology, psycho-neurology, and anti-aging therapies.
I love to tell my patients the story of how I became a doctor -
My story started with back pain caused by from an injury at 22 years old. My family suffered from auto-immune diseases, that no one could help. Traditional medical care failed to offer any solution, and still can't. That experience began my journey into acupuncture, chiropractic and rehabilitation.
I was a hospice nurse before I became a doctor, but this major life event changed it all for me -- severe, excruciating, nearly paralyzing back pain. The sort of back pain where even the slightest muscle twitch would send searing pain screaming through my body.
I did what anyone who is not in the "know" would do…I went to a doctor and got pumped full of painkillers. Doctors said, "take these pills and call me in a week." Pretty much what we have all experienced--It did nothing to resolve my excruciating back issues, it just numbed the pain for a while. I was forced to learn all I could about acupuncture, chiropractic and functional medicine.
Soon, healthcare changed for the world.
Epstein Barr, muscle and brain fatigue issues, and autoimmune issues became the dominant problems in my patient base… There was my inspiration! Standard medicine was not taking this seriously, so much that they could not use the word "cure" any longer; only "palliative relief" from your disease! This was not good enough for me or my clients!
My greatest joy is making sure that my patients don't have to suffer the pain and depression usually experienced with long term illnesses and injuries, like GI issues, Hashimoto's, or Long Haulers C0VID.
My mission is to help you and your family reach your optimal health goals . Are you ready?
"I, am a huge Dr. Jung fan! I've been seeing him for a few years and I come all the way from California to see him. He is much more than a chiropractor! He is a Dr. that looks at the person and is concerned with total health quality. I was sent to Stanford,for an auto immune disease...only to find out they didn't know why nor how to fix. Dr. Jung has been chipping away at the issues and it's amazing how much better I am doing! I also referred a friend to him that had been cut open a few times, trying to figure out what was wrong with her and in one visit he was able to address her issues and she is doing much better. He spends the time and the energy,to diagnose the core issues to eliminate the problem not just...
