"THE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES OF OPTIMIZING YOUR HEALTH"

Nutrition

When it comes down to it, food is simply signaling molecules in our body. Eating for longevity is all about what you eat, how much you eat and when you eat. It doesn't matter if you are in the Vegan, carnivore or Mediterranean camp, that's the strategy - and we're here to make it simple. Our nutritional strategies focus on optimizing gut health; furthermore your ability to breakdown, absorb, and eliminate. Nearly all disease results from a dysfunction in one of those categories.

Sleep

The phrase "I can sleep when I'm dead" is dead itself. Did you know sleep deprivation is a known risk factor for cancer, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular disease? If you didn't, what you should know is that sleep is the most powerful performance-enhancing drug we know of. In fact, 1/3 of our lives is spent recovering for the other 2/3. When that ratio declines, performance declines, recovery declines, and aging accelerates. Using modern technologies to track your sleep performance, we can help manage your sleep patterns, improve recovery and facilitate more refreshed mornings.

Movement

If you've arrived here, you understand the concept movement is medicine. Our brains need 3 things to survive: energy, oxygen and stimulus. Movement is that stimulus. The movement pillar is largely centered around how you move. How you move matters because your body evolved to adapt based on how you move on a regular basis. Retraining proper muscular firing patterns can immediately resolve painful movements, strengthen non-functioning muscles and promote better postural alignment. Maintaining structural integrity is essential to living longer, living better.

Mindset

Mindset may be the single most important factor when approaching problem solving, especially the problem of living longer, living better. As humans, we have about 60,000 thoughts each day, 90% of those being the same as the previous day. Have you ever contemplated the loop of thoughts you revisit on a daily basis? Do these thoughts serve you or are they moving you farther away from your goal? What about your emotions associated with those thoughts? We want you to achieve breakthroughs in all aspects of your healthspan and lifespan, which begins with approaching 3 critical elements: STATE, STORY, STRATEGY.

Dr. Jaron Faber, DC

After obtaining his B.S. in Biology from University of Minnesota Duluth, Dr. Jaron first set out to become a pharmacist. While prepping for pharmacy school he spent time working at a pharmacy that filled the second most prescriptions in the US. It didn’t take long to realize that there is something wrong with the current healthcare system. Dosages of drugs kept increasing and conditions became worse and more prevalent. Luckily, at this same time in life, Dr. Jaron was reintroduced to chiropractic. The philosophy of putting the body and mind in the right environment to heal itself or prevent injury made so much more sense than to target a symptom with a drug. For this reason, he declined pharmacy school offers to pursue a doctorate program that focuses on true health optimization.

During chiropractic school, Dr. Jaron compiled over 500 post-doctoral hours attending various functional medicine programs and learning from the most brilliant minds in musculoskeletal dysfunction/pain, sleep, nutrition, blood and brain chemistry, anti-aging strategies, gut imbalances, methylation, and genetics. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2019 and is currently completing a Masters in Exercise Science. Soon, he intends to get certified through the Institute of Functional Medicine. When he is not educating himself on current trends in healthy dietary and lifestyle habits, he enjoys hunting, football, traveling, and being with friends and family. Dr Jaron is thrilled to serve the Edina community, with the agenda of getting people as healthy as possible, in the least amount of time as possible, following our only rule of ‘first do no harm.’

Dr. Jordan Shilts, DC

Dr. Jordan Shilts is motivated by longevity sciences. He incorporates chiropractic care, brain-based therapies, nutrition and movement into his holistic treatments to extend his patients’ health span and improve quality of life. His goal is to make longevity practices simple and accessible for his patients, as he does in his own life. In his free time, he enjoys sporting events, reading, mindful movement, and traveling. Dr. Shilts is also very passionate about research and integrating it into his treatments to promote optimal outcomes. 

 

He graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. He received his B.S. in Kinesiology from Winona State University. Dr. Shilts is certified in nutrition and applied kinesiology, and is dedicated to furthering his education. He is actively finalizing his M.S. in Exercise Science, performing thesis research in autonomic nervous system function, and currently pursuing a diplomate in Functional Neurology. 

His unique approach to practice is promoting foundational pillars of health (sleep, autonomic functions and recovery) while simultaneously improving the patient’s mindset towards lifestyle change. Once the foundation is stable, everything else can flourish. He believes this is achieved by identifying the cellular drivers of dysfunction and disease systematically before symptoms arise.
