Cyrus Thomas DC -Nutritionist
Pre-Med and philosophy, Boston College 1974-1978
Doctor of Chiropractic 1978-1982
Medical Doctor of Homeopathy 1989 India
Two years after obtaining the doctorate in chiropractic, I worked in a multidisciplinary clinic in Miami, Florida treating all of my patients with nutrition, chiropractic and homeopathy. We had many patients from Europe. For the next ten years I operated my own five-doctor wholistic facility in Jacksonville , Florida. I did 1400 television programs on holistic medicine and coordinated the efforts of homeopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, allopaths (medical doctors) and massage therapists. I became the president of the Chiropractic Academy of Homeopathy and an examiner for the National Board. In my own practice I performed hundreds of blood tests, thousands of x-rays and MRIs, and a multitude of physical examinations and neurological tests. I rarely recommend x-rays now, however, due to the damage they create.
Over the last thirty years I have studied with the most renowned homeopaths in the world, including Catherine Coulter, Eizayaga, Bill Gray, Roger Morrison and various homeopaths from India. I have an advanced standing with the NCH, a Medical Doctorate of Homeopathy from India and am a Diplomat and an examiner of the National Board of Homeopathic Examiners.
WHO I LIKE TO TREAT
I like to treat a person on the physical, chemical and emotion planes at the same time as part of a comprehensive approach to health care.
My favorite challenges are chronic patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, heavy metal toxicity issues, malnutrition, leaky gut and a history of medical suppression over the course of their lives.
Emotional disorders are so nicely treated with classical homeopathy. Using homeopathy, a doctor can treat the emotional/mental component of a person without the harmful effects of psychotrophic pharmaceutical preparations.
Having performed 60 thousand chiropractic boney adjustments I enjoy treating folks with structural alignment issues.
There is no greater thrill than comprehending a patient’s medical history from the time they were born to the present day. Humans are very complex and there is no end to the variety of people on this planet. I truly love to get to know each one of them and to then be the medical detective in a clinic which has more to offer than any clinic they’ve been to before. That is thrilling.
