Beyond Wellness Chiropractic
Dr. Raphael has been studying health and wellness for well over a decade. He is recognized in an elite group of chiropractic doctors, less than 100 in the world, that are Certified Wellness Practitioners, and one of less than 50 Paleo Physicians through out Canada. From 2009 - to 2011 he acted as a clinic director in Victoria, BC. At the office he ran an integrative education based lifestyle program which was centered around transforming health through the science of EPIgenetics.
The lifestyle program forged a genetically congruent diet, movement and thought pattern, which was modeled by our hunter gatherer ancestors, and hunter gatherer societies that still exist today! Hunter gather societies exhibit the lowest rates of chronic disease, and the maximum rates of optimal health, function, and vitality. Simple principles about how they live (nutrition/movement/thought) can be translated to our North American environment and surroundings. The education based program allowed clients to reach their maximum health and performance potential by making changes that moved them towards their genetic nutritional - movement - and thought requirements. In mid 2011, Dr. Raphael relocated to Ontario and has since been servicing clients in the Greater Toronto Area. www.memyselfandfood.com
Dr. Raphael's first degree was a Bachelor of Engineering, during which time he trained and competed in track and field at McMaster University. He continued on to attain his Bachelor of Science and further Doctor of Chiropractic, and also became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA, coaching out of Velocity Sports. In postgraduate studies, he was active in research and lectured regularly to colleagues on the science of a paleo based lifestyle. He continues to stay up on leading research, and continues to lecture on science of wellness lifestyle to the public, to trainers, and doctors.
His back ground in engineering, give him a solid understanding of the physics and biomechanics of the human body. This was further enhanced by his chiropractic education which gave him a firmer grasp on the physiology and function of the body. Dr. Raphael's Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer designations allowed him to train and work with athletes.
He now runs a fulltime wellness practice, working with people of all ages with the understanding that health is our greatest asset, and it can be obtained through a "paleo" lifestyle, coupled with alternative care.
