Dr. Melanie H. Dias, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic and Ayurvedic Counselor
During University, Dr. Melanie Dias was headed down the path towards medical school since she knew her calling was to help people create health and realize their potential for it. She realized medicine was not the answer. It was not compatible to her view of improving health and function. Suffering from chronic headaches since high school, she was never quite happy with her medical doctor's solution. After several prescriptions and side effects, she had enough. "My headaches were not caused by a lack of medication. I do have respect for the medical field but it addresses more of the disease and symptoms and less of the person.” I wanted to help people improve their health and investigate the underlying causes of their conditions. That’s when I discovered Chiropractic. An intern in Toronto gave me my first adjustment and was the first to explain the causes of my ongoing headaches and the relationship between the spine, the nervous system and my symptoms. He also took the time to discuss what lifestyle habits were contributing to my poor health. Finally, the answer! It made perfect sense."
