"Truthfully, I had no idea what chiropractic was, even in college. A friend of mine was applying to chiropractic school. All I knew was that chiropractors "crack" backs but why were people seeking their care? Out of curiosity I went to visit a local chiropractor, and though I had no complaints at the time, I did notice that I was more focused and alert (my neck was a lot looser as well). I had learned my first valuable lesson about chiropractic that day…chiropractic is more than treating back pain, it’s something much bigger. This started my everlasting journey into chiropractic and other alternative therapies."
"Thanks for visiting our site and we hope to be able to meet you one day soon over a smile, a chuckle and a little inspiration towards better health!
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. "
Dr. Melanie Dias grew up in Toronto, Canada and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1992 from the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario. She was always involved in fitness and performing arts and worked in that field through high school and university. This lifestyle and passion for natural health led her to Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (Southern California University of Health Sciences) where she graduated cum laude in 1998. Dr. Melanie integrates Ayurveda, the ancient tradition of self -healing from India into her consultations and she completed her certification with the Kerala Academy of Ayurveda. In 2013, she completed an online Global business certification program with Thunderbird School of Global Management. She has post grad training in pediatric and perinatal care and is certified in the Webster Technique. Her primary focus in practice is sports/rehab, prevention and functional medicine, however patients of all ages and conditions seek her out for her comprehensive approach. She now splits her time between Living Pure and her practice in the Arcadia district of Phoenix. She makes time to enjoy dancing, weight training, yoga, reading, and spending time in nature with her dog. She’s travels abroad to research healing techniques and shares her experiences in her health and travel blog www.nakedtruthbydrmelanie.com . Educating and empowering people to take responsibility for their health and flourish is her passion.
