Dr. Misty Kosciusko developed her passion for natural healthcare at an early age. She witnessed her father pass away early in life due to addiction and an unhealthy lifestyle. These poor lifestyle choices combined with misdiagnosis and neglectful care contributed heavily to his passing.
Soon after, Dr. Kosciusko took and active interest in her own health and lifestyle. After developing back pain herself at the age of 21, Dr. Kosciusko discovered the benefits of Chiropractic and natural healthcare. She realized that healthy living, natural healthcare, and alternative therapies such as chiropractic were effective means of treating the body through her own treatments and recovery. This was the profession for her, as it promoted the same natural & healthy lifestyle she already benefit from.
During her years in practice, Dr. Kosciusko experienced 2 very difficult and life threatening pregnancies that left Dr. Kosciusko 80 lbs overweight, stressed, in chronic pain, with severe fatigue and numbness.
She didn’t recognize the person she had become. She had visited multiple doctors and did many traditional tests that revealed no disease and was told to just lose weight. Dr. Kosciusko knew there was more to the puzzle.
Through Functional Medicine, Dr. Kosciusko discovered the root cause of her ailments was due to multiple autoimmune conditions; particularly Celiac Disease, a Parasite Infection, Vitamin Deficiencies, and PTSD from past trauma that was triggered.
Today Dr. Kosciusko is healthier than when she began her practice and wants to help others experience the same transformation out of disease and into the radiant and vibrant health she now enjoys!
