  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...

Testimonials

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "My husband and I have searched and searched for a doctor that suites our chiropractic health needs, and finally we have found Dr.Billings. Dr.Billings specializes in not only chiropractic care, but in acupuncture as well! We have gone back 3 times already, and are very pleased. His adjustments are amazing, and the way he utilizes acupuncture in his sessions just makes everything feel even better. My husband has scoliosis, and is so relieved to have someone that understands his condition and can provide him with relief on a bj-weekly basis.
    If you are in pain, then you must see Dr.Billings!"
    Anais S.
  • "This man is amazing! Not only does he make you feel at ease, he is confident in his abilities. After 6 weeks of trying chiropractic adjustments for my shoulder and not getting any relief, he recommended acupuncture. Three days after my first treatment I was finally pain free. I was completely shocked myself, but a year later I'm still pain free 98% of the time. Thanks Dr. Billings."
    Tiffany C.
  • "I've been to several chiropractors in Colorado Springs. I started going to Dr. Billings about 6 years ago. He's knowledgeable and efficient. I never feel rushed, but I never have to wait long either. The office staff is very friendly and helpful as well."
    Darrell R.
  • "It really is a great place to find overall better health. With chiropractic, acupuncture and nutrition available you feel like you are being seen as a whole person not just one symptom with one healthcare option. It's a great place and I would defiantly recommend it."
    Cynthia M.
  • "Calm, assuring and confident. What are the feelings you want to met with when going to a doctor? I have always been nervous about Chiropractic and having Dr. Billings greet me with a calm demeanor and a warm smile calmed my nerves. He assured by reviewing the x-rays with me and listening to how I currently live and want to live is possible. I gained confidence and through his discussion of treatment, knew that that he was fully capable of working towards a solution to heal my neck/shoulder issues. Honestly, I do not go as often as I should, I have a few other priorities that rank more in my house but I totally recommend him to those that are seeking help in good health."
    Becki T.
