Our show will provide you with science backed information on alternative and natural approaches to health. No fads here! We will also provide our experiences with these tried and true methods in what we call evidence based nutrition via “clinical pearls” as real life stories about real patients (no names used obviously) and situations that present to us in our business. We believe that people should take control of their own health care, and we provide the knowledge and information needed to do that. Teaching is the true meaning of a physician. We will accept calls from anyone wanting more information and knowledge about any medical condition and how to apply natural alternatives.

Drs. Jim and Janine Fox, D.C.

After many years of conventional practice, we realized that the third party pay (insurance model) system that is the norm in America is not working to provide optimal health. With this realization, and an unwavering passion for natural healing methods, we sold our conventional practice and opened Doctor’s Nutrition in Gulfport, Mississippi in 1997.

The concept of Doctor’s Nutrition is one where a patient can have access to a doctor without an appointment, or cost for the consultation. We provide a method with which the patient can have access to lab work at a reasonable cost as well, and without expensive office visits. The patient is provided a copy of the results of the lab work as well as a consultation to explain the findings and possible corrective measures.

Doctors Jim and Janine have a combined practice experience of over 50 years. These years of experience using an intimate knowledge of natural and alternative treatment methods make for a truly unique health experience.
