Part of holistic wellness is acknowledging that what we put into our bodies matters. Nutrition, and the way we choose to nourish our bodies, is a critical component of health. 

According to the USDA, half of the adult population in America has at least one chronic preventable disease process. That means many of us are suffering from conditions that could be prevented, at least in part, by eating better. The “standard” American diet is far from nutritious, and many people suffer from vitamin deficiencies they aren’t even aware of. 

If you’re wondering how to improve your eating habits, whether your nutrition is affecting you systemically, or have questions related to your food and supplement intake, our functional nutrition assessments can help.

What is a Functional Nutrition Assessment?

Functional nutrition employs a big-picture perspective on the vital role that nutrition plays in restoring and maintaining health. With this approach, we look at a person as a whole entity and not its individual parts. You are not just your symptoms. 

Our functional nutrition assessments and detox services respect the complexity of your individual situation and seek to detoxify your system and restore your body to optimal health. Functional nutrition assessments take a look at how your body is functioning overall and help us get to the root cause of your problems. 

Our 5-point functional nutrition assessment incorporates an array of evaluation methods, including:

  1. Physical Assessment
  2. Systems Focused Metabolic and Brain Function Surveys
  3. Functional Evaluation of Conventional Lab Analyses
  4. Actionable Gene Assessment
  5. Muscle Response Testing

Using Your Assessment, We Develop a Program Just for You

After your assessment is completed and we’ve determined the root cause of your symptoms, we develop a unique program designed just for you. Programs typically include a mix of the following:

  • Dietary recommendations
  • Supplementation to address any deficiencies or imbalances
  • Detoxification protocols

Our goal is to not only get you healthy now but show you ways to stay that way for the rest of your life. We will help you develop a personalized, actionable program to help you maintain your health for the long term.

Dr. Dave McCann’s Story

Dr. Dave McCann’s Story

If you come to Community Wellness Collaborative for nutritionist and detox services or for chiropractic care, you’ll be seeing Dr. Dave McCann. Dr. Dave is widely beloved by his patients and works out of our North Park location on Adams Ave. Read on to learn more about Dr. Dave’s journey and why he loves this work!

Dr. Dave McCann, D.C. (Clinical Director) was born and raised in Alton, Illinois. The youngest of three boys, he was the first in his family to graduate from college. While working in the Clinical Engineering department of Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, his pursuit to find his passion came to a somewhat comical crossroads: go to Barnum and Bailey’s Clown College or attend Logan College of Chiropractic! He chose the latter and graduated with honors from Logan College in 1997.

Dr. Dave has a love for community theatre and recently received an award for Best Supporting Actor in a Minor Role for his role as Gonzalo in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” at the Coronado Playhouse. His interests also include science fiction, metaphysics, and music. However, his greatest joy is spending time with his wife, Colleen, who is an amazing healer in her own right.

Clinically, Dr. Dave’s background in engineering has prepared him well with a systematic, yet highly creative, approach to working with the human body. In addition to being an extraordinary chiropractor, Dr. Dave has a passion for nutrition, epigenetics, and functional lab assessment. His extensive study of Applied Kinesiology (AK) gives him an excellent knowledge of the muscular system and how it relates to not only the skeleton but also the organs and energy meridians of the body. By coupling lab results and Functional Genetic Testing with AK, often referred to as “muscle testing”, he discovers the hidden causes of dis-ease in his patients.

Dr. Dave’s humor and compassion go far to creating a healing atmosphere for anyone fortunate enough to be his patient.

How Our Patients Are Healing from the Root Cause

I just underwent an IVF embryo transfer and my doctor recommended acupuncture to help with the implantation process.  Since my transfer, I've been beyond stressed and scared and worried, like what if it doesn't work, will my husband leave me, will I ever be able to have kids.... Etc. I feel none of that now. I feel weightless. Mind, body and soul. I feel so strong and so hopeful. If you've ever been on the fence about acupuncture, just go and try it already. I'm disappointed I waited 27 years to do this. Thank you so much, Joe!

How Our Patients Are Healing from the Root Cause

"I remember after seeing Dave for my initial consultation I left with a feeling of being cared for and hope that my situation would improve. Not only did it improve, it has healed. No more surgery needed. I've suffered from digestive issues, anxiety, sleep troubles, aches and pains caused by the physical demands of my profession. Dave has helped me with ALL of it. The quality of my life has vastly improved as a result of his care."

It's hard for me to express how much Dr. Dave means to me and my family. He has met us every week with compassion and patience.
