ABOUT

Hi, I'm Dr. Carol Shwery

I’ve been a dedicated healthcare practitioner for over 37 years and am committed to helping people find the root causes of their health challenges in order to improve and restore their health. I love to spend time with my family, garden, practice yoga, dance, and continue learning and practicing health and healing.

 

I am a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic, specializing in Applied Kinesiology and non-force techniques. I am certified as a Clinical Nutritionist, Therapeutic Lifestyle Change Doctor, Menopause-Type Doctor, and have taken hundreds of hours in advance training in Functional Medicine. I have received the distinguished honor of being considered a Center of Excellence business and also the award of Best Chiropractor in Santa Cruz, CA. 

My Story

FANTASTIC - TO PARALYZED - TO FANTASTIC AGAIN

At this time in my life, my friends tell me that I’m the Energizer Bunny and I have an abundance of energy. I can work in my  garden for eight hours a day, and do whatever I want with joy and with grace.

But it wasn’t always this way. Fourteen years ago, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor after a five year struggle. The fourteen hour operation left me paralyzed on one side of my body. I was incapable of functioning on a physical or mental level. I had to relearn how to do the most basic of things. My recovery and the life I lead today is considered a miracle by all accounts, and would not have happened without the help of Functional Medicine and Chiropractic. I truly am grateful for this experience that has made me a better person as well as a better doctor by far.

I treat people from one day to 100 years old. I particularly love caring for people who are struggling with their health and want to feel their best in their 40s, 50s, and beyond, because of my own midlife battle with a brain tumor and inspirational return to health. We really can age younger!
