Meet the Doctor
GETTING TO KNOW DR. CRAIG GIBSON
Renowned Natural Health Care Revolutionary & Chiropractor
Where ever you live, local or around the world, I would like to thank you for coming to our website. I am Dr. Craig Gibson, and I take great pride in serving Western North Carolina and the surrounding Southeastern US. Our natural weight loss and technology helps us to deliver the same high quality of care anywhere around the world. I am here to help you overcome many health challenges that can and are rooted in being overweight.
But, I thought you may want to know a little about who I am. Much of who we are is a remit of our upbringing of the people and family that surround us. I thought I would not just give you the professional truth of who I am, but also tell you a little about myself. First, I grew up in the Kansas City area. My parents always inspired me growing up and they always said I was going to college and to be something. I never thought of it as an option!
Through out high school I was active in science and competing in Science Academy across the state and nation. This was my interest and who I was. I took first place in my school and state. Science led me to interest in the human body and how it functions. My interest always seems to stem from how to keep healthy verses how to treat sickness.
While attending the University of Missouri, I realized my calling was chiropractic and nutrition. After receiving a bachelor degree in Biology, I attended Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. I have always said “students are the poorest individuals” and while attending’ school I ate mostly non-nutrition foods including lots and lots of noodles. Eventually I worked and lived in a facility where I didn't have to pay rent, they paid me!
At graduation for my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1987, 1 was disgusted by a picture I saw of myself. I was fat and barely recognized the person I was looking at. From that day forward (26 years ago) I dedicated myself to helping people get and stay healthy, not only through chiropractic care, but through nutrition as well. This leads me to the most successful weight loss program to date.
After graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, I practiced in Southern California for two years. My wife and I decided to move to North Carolina and had a practice at the Outer Banks of NC for 13 years. We later decided move to Western NC because we wanted our three year old son to grow up around family.
Over the last 12 years that we have been in Waynesville, NC I have become very interested in weight loss and its treatments. What works and what doesn’t and why a particular program has success and most importantly why a weight loss program fails. When I say a program does or does not work, I am talking about consistently, not just on occasion. This is why WNC Weight loss was developed.
The satisfaction of assisting patients to lose weight, gain more energy than they’ve had in years, decrease their blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes medications is life changing. I love to see the huge smile on their face when they come back for a follow up visit after losing 16, 20, 30, 40 lbs, and regaining their life back... Successful weight loss is possible.
