Dr. Douglas Husbands
Dr Husbands has been helping people resolve chronic illness and improve their health in California for over 18 years. He has worked in health care for over 25 years.
Dr Husbands is one of the best trained holistic doctors in the U.S. He graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.S. degree in Biology/Human Physiology in 1983. In 1991, he graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles and became a Doctor of Chiropractic. In 1996, he earned his post-graduate board certification as a Certified Clinical Nutritionist with the International and American Associations of Clinical Nutritionists, and in 2000, he became a certified Anti-Aging Health Care Practitioner with the American Board of Anti-Aging Health Practitioners. In 2003, he became a Functional Medicine physician after completing training at the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Prior to becoming a Chiropractor in 1991, he worked in Sports Medicine as a physical therapy aide and had a personal exercise training business in the 80's.
His education and experience provide a unique combination that covers the key components to help you restore your health. His physiology degree and chiropractic education were his foundation as a physician. With his Functional Medicine training, he has the knowledge to stop and/or reverse various disease processes. His nutrition and anti-aging healthcare knowledge are the tools he uses to influence the human body towards wellness. His bodybuilding and exercise trainer experience provides him with hands-on knowledge for teaching exercises to help the healing process.
Dr. Husbands has been sought for expert opinion by national health magazines and been published in peer-reviewed journals. He has taught many classes and lectured extensively to a wide variety of audiences on natural health topics and functional medicine.
His clinic is located at Rivera Chiropractic Group in San Carlos, at the center between the San Jose (South Bay) and San Francisco. He offers phone consultations for people outside of the San Francisco bay area.
Dr. Husbands was instrumental in assisting me with some health related issues that have now been completely resolved. He took the time and effort to completely understand the problems and made recommendations that I am still following today with great results!! He is a pleasure to work with and very accessible when you need to reach him either by phone or email. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs assistance and wants positive results. It is well worth it!
I have been working with Dr. Husbands for over one year now, and I have seen marked results in many areas. What I like most about Dr. Husbands' approach is how thorough he is, and how he takes such a great interest in each patient. I was using a steroid inhaler at least once daily for my asthma, but now I only use it infrequently. My general health has improved, along with my level of fitness. Dr. Husbands has helped me to strengthen my immune system and I have virtually eliminated some food allergies that had previously bothered me a great deal. I would recommend Dr. Husbands without reservation.
I went to Dr. Husbands because I had sudden weight gain, high cholesterol , and my blood surgar levels were at the pre diabetic level. My normal methods of losing weight were ineffective. Within months, my weight was down, my cholesterol within the normal range, and my blood sugar levels normal. He did this all by having me use the nutritionally-based functional medicine methods, without any medications. I followed his diet plan and nutrtional supplement plan. I feel much better.
