The Duggar Model

1 Cause of Disease

Stress is unavoidable. Some stress is actually critical for our survival. Unfortunately, when those stressors are severe or prolonged they may overcome our internal ability to withstand them.

In the final analysis, there is only one cause of disease – your body’s inability to successfully adapt to negative stress. These stressors imprint negative patterns in your control systems causing “dis-ease” throughout the body.

3 Types of Stress

Physical stressors may include: poor posture, lack of physical exercise, slips and falls, childbirth, car accidents, computer use and other occupational factors.

Chemical stressors may include: unbalanced diet, dehydration, toxic additives in our air, food and water supply and prescription drugs.

Emotional stressors may include: worry, anxiety, fear, family relations or finances, negative self-image/self-talk and a victim mentality.

5 Key Systems

When we experience severe or chronic dis-stress, key systems begin to fail. Like toppling dominoes, the imbalance in the body can quickly translate to multiple organs and systems.

The Nerve system is the master controller of the body. Every thought, action and feeling you experience is filtered through that life line.  Any level of dysfunction in the nerve system will have a devastating impact your health.

The Hormonal system is the link between your mind, emotions and your body. Powerful chemicals are secreted through the glands of this system that help to regulate virtually every action in every cell in your body.

The Digestive system and the Detoxification systems are where the “rubber meets the road” so to speak.  These systems are on the front line – responsible for the internal chemical environment of our bodies. The quality of each cell of the body is determined by what nutrients we actually absorb from the foods we eat and how efficiently we can eliminate waste products from inside our bodies and from the environment.

Last but not least, our overall health is dramatically impacted by the strength, balance and movement of our Structural system. Our muscles, bones, joints and tendons need to work together efficiently and easily to help us feel young and vibrant.

7 Pillars of Wellness

I’m sure that it comes as no surprise that the key to our health and happiness lies in our daily habits. Although we all would love to find a way around it, there doesn’t seem to be a way to fool Mother Nature. In the end, we still reap what we sow.

The 7 Pillars - Eat Well, Drink Well, Move Well, Sleep Well, Think Well, Love Well and Play Well - are the critical lifestyle habits that we must engage in on a daily basis if we are to experience health. They become the steady rudder that moves you through healing cycles and the foundation of life-long wellness.  Without these pillars in place, virtually all short-term treatments for health conditions are only marginally effective. The process of learning and implementing consistent lifestyle change takes time but it is magical to witness in ourselves. When we create change based on solid principles within these 7 areas the changes last a lifetime. To learn more about our 7 Pillars Lifestyle program, click here.

Real People. Real Results.

  • I have been visiting Dr. Duggar for a few months now and I love the holistic approach to my health. Dr. Duggar's treatments have helped me feel better and manage my stress better. I love how he used functional medicine testing to accurately diagnose the specific issues I was experiencing and then created a health plan that included diet, adjustments and energy work. I am grateful for the help of everyone at I Am Wellness to improve my life

  • I have been coming to Dr. Duggar for the past 10 years. Honestly, I can't express how grateful I am for all that he has been able to do for me. I am a dental hygienist. I was experiencing intense pain in my wrist and thumb. I had surgery to try to help the problem but it only made it worse. I came to Dr. Duggar as a last resort (I should have seen him first!) Within 1 month of care and I had complete relief! I am a true believer in Dr. Duggar's approach to complete and total wellness.

  • Our family has been blessed ever since my sister-in-law referred us to Dr. Duggar. He has helped us deal with many issues ranging from gluten intolerance, frequent headaches, recurring colds, hearing problems and ulcerative colitis. His method of correcting spinal misalignments is more gentle than other adjustments I've had in the past. Whenever I develop a new condition, I always want to go to Dr. Duggar first because I believe he treats the whole person and I will receive healing that is more lasting and effective.
