As part of my ongoing research we study how using specific phytochemicals and their influence on both our cells and our gastrointestinal, urogenital and skin microbiota.    This is perhaps the most revolutionary areas of natural science, it underlies the long-lived relationship between our cells, the microbiota (our newest organ) and the herbs we use as medicine.  Through these efforts we have shown how specific compounds (polyphenolics, vitamins and flavonoids, anti-oxidants) can influence our microbiome in unprecedented ways.  Together the new paradigm can provide more personal and effective formulas. I am also so infinitely grateful to have my family, Amy McKelle, Cambrye and Harper they are best experiment I have every performed.

Dr. Caitlin Czezowski
Dr. Caitlin Czezowski DC, CFMP, CACCP is a doctor of chiropractic and certified functional medicine practitioner with extensive training in women's health, pregnancy and children.  The reason for all of the extra training was due to the fact that Dr. Caitlin’s health began to deteriorate after opening up her first office with her husband.

Her energy was almost non existent, menstrual cycles were so painful that she needed to be adjusted 3 times a day just to be able to leave the fetal position, she couldn’t breath through her nose (ever) and her brain clarity took a turn for the worst… so much so that her 90 year old grandmother’s memory was in better shape than hers. 

In her quest to find out the cause for this deterioration, she came across post graduate training in functional endocrinology and clinical nutrition. She finally got her life back tracing her root causes back to the dental work she had done as a teenager and young adult.  Through extensive research, she found that the majority of symptoms and illnesses can be linked back to the mouth and because of this, The Dental Detox was created. 

She is hugely passionate about finding the root cause of one's health issues and developing a safe and effective plan to reverse their symptoms and restore their quality of life.  She does this by working one on one with select individuals along with educating the masses through the Women N Wellness podcast, speaking engagements and social media avenues.
