Dr. Jordan Axe
Founder of Axe Holistic Medicine
Dr. Axe grew up in Troy, Ohio. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science from Excelsior College. He then received his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University which has equipped and empowered him to pursue his life mission to improve patients quality of life. As a child, Dr. Axe constantly suffered with ear infections, sinus infections, low energy, and chronic skin conditions.He found out on a first hand basis that being sick drastically lowers your quality of life!
At this early point in his life, Dr. Axe knew very little about the different treatment options available for his conditions; however, like most Americans, he thought the only means of treatment was the traditional medical system. Following the “standard of care,” Dr. Axe was sent to medical specialist after medical specialist with no true answers to his issues. At the age of 14, he started taking antibiotics for his sinus infections and additional medication for his severe acne. Several months after beginning this regimen, Dr. Axe’s body grew accustomed to those medications, and he was forced to begin taking even stronger meds. Dr. Axe was then diagnosed with eczema and a hypothyroid condition known as Hashimotos Thyroiditis.
The path he was taking of more doctors’ visits and more medications was only making him sicker. Dr. Axe knew he had to figure out another course of action. Through several years of research and drastic lifestyle changes, Dr. Axe is proud to announce that today he is the healthiest he has ever been! He is free of all of his skin conditions, Hashimotos, chronic fatigue, and frequent digestive problems.
It was his own life experience and finally getting to the root of his issues that led Dr. Axe down the path of becoming a functional medicine practitioner. With the memories of the many years of frustration and agony due to his own conditions, Dr. Axe is driven on a daily basis to restore hope to his patients and help them get to the root cause of their issues!
