Dr. Emily Hecker is a board certified chiropractic physician who is passionate about Functional Medicine. Patients seek her out specifically for nutrigenomic support for those who have a genetic polymorphism for MTHFR, Histamine Intolerance and Fertility. Her passion for natural health care started when her aviation career required her to work at a desk job, leading to chronic back pain. She was amazed at how a chiropractic physician was able to evaluate her body and tell her where she was unknowingly in pain. After a few adjustments, she was pain-free and never needed pain killers to manage her chronic back pain. As private pilot and meteorologist in her previous career, Dr. Emily discovered the human body was similar to operating an aircraft in a thunderstorm, where everything had to be in balance to function perfectly. She is owner of Enlighten Functional Medicine.
