Up to 84% of those on the autism spectrum concurrently have elevated oxalate levels. Oxalates are tiny crystals that can deposit into the body tissues causing pain, inflammation, mood complications and even death in some who are genetically susceptible. The reason why antifreeze is toxic to humans is that it breaks down into oxalate. These kids do not […]

In autism we commonly see improvement with targeted vitamin supplementation. Many people have trouble converting dietary and store bought vitamins into the biologically active forms. Not simply walking into your local supplement shop and buying a b complex off the shelf, but choosing a course of action by evaluating specific genetic factors and symptoms. One of […]
On February 1st, 2016 the world lost a great practitioner, Paige Adams, FNP. Paige dedicated her life to helping the autism community and the chronically ill. I had the privilege of working with her in her clinic where she taught me more than I’ll ever realize. She molded who I am as a practitioner. She was […]
Inflammation is vital to our bodies ability to protect itself and survive. Acute inflammation is what happens when we injure ourselves or are fighting an infection. As the body detects injury or an infection it releases immune system chemicals called cytokines and interleukins. These immune system chemicals stimulate our immune system cells to activate and congregate […]
Most physicians never check for Hashimoto’s disease, but chances are if you’re reading this you’re one of the lucky ones who have had it checked. The reason most do not is because it doesn’t affect how they treat you. The standard of care I still levothyroxine supplementation regardless of Hashimoto’s or not and this sometimes leaves […]

Recently I’ve had many women come in who are pregnant asking for help to optimize their pregnancy and address their issues. I think to myself, “you should have been here 6 to 8 months ago to prepare for a pregnancy. Not to mention the aforementioned patients had to utilize fertility treatments and IVF. I truly […]
With 10% of our population diagnosed with diabetes with an additional two million new cases every year, it is the 7th leading cause of death in America. Also I should mention the 86 million Americans who are prediabetic. (Link) According to the CDC, Heart disease and Cancer are the top two leading causes of death, […]
Hidden food sensitivities or allergies can wreak havoc on the body and is something you should consider as one of the first steps in optimizing your health. Foods that we are sensitive too can cause an immune reaction unlike traditional allergies in that it may take hours to days before the symptoms occur instead of […]
Every cell in the body is influenced by the thyroid gland, so the symptoms and ramifications of a decrease in thyroid function, including “Low Normal” function, can be profound. There are even situations where lab testing will be normal and completely miss what’s going on at the cellular level. As well, the thyroid is a […]

After 13 years of trying, my husband and I had not been given a lot of hope for getting pregnant. My list of doctors included endocrinologists, gynecologists, gastroenterologists, and fertility specialists. After seeing Dr. Yarbrough, I was completely shocked to be pregnant after only being on the recommended treatment plan for five weeks!
Feeling as if all my symptoms, of over 10 years, were tied to hormones I continued to seek a doctor who was willing to listen and to see the bigger picture of what my body might be saying with all the symptoms. Dr. Yarbrough did just that!
I have lost 24 pounds and steadily losing inches! I’m off the emotional roller coaster ride, I have tons of energy, my brain is sharp as a tack again, my cholesterol is down, and periods are like clockwork (truelly a first in my lifetime).

I no longer have to limit my activities due to migraines and exhaustion anymore; instead I’ve regained my energy, and I’m back doing the things that I love. I’m very grateful for the care I’ve received from him and would recommend Dr. Yarbrough to anyone dealing with chronic migraines.
I came to Dr. Yarbrough having suffered from frequent migraines and chronic daily headaches for over a year. I had tried several different doctors, neurologists, medications, and even other chiropractors, but nothing had significantly decreased my pain long-term. When I began seeing Dr. Yarbrough, it was a relief to hear him say that he wanted to figure out what was actually wrong with me instead of just covering up my symptoms with prescriptions. I had been waiting for over a year to hear a medical professional tell me that! He has been very dedicated to patiently figuring out the source of my pain and helping my system find balance again. After a year of constant pain, I finally got to experience an entire day without a headache, which grew to a few pain-free days in a row and then into entire weeks with no headaches. I don’t have to limit my activities due to pain or exhaustion anymore; instead I’ve regained my energy, and I’m back doing the things that I love. I’m very grateful for the care I’ve received from him and would recommend Dr. Yarbrough to anyone dealing with chronic pain.
I am 32 years old now feeling like I am 25 again. That wasn’t the case 10 weeks ago! I was on a downward spiral and feeling older than my age more and more each day. I had been to my OB/GYN complained my hormones were “out of whack” which she prescribed birth control pills! They were no help! Went to my family doctor, ran thyroid tests – Diagnosis: “thyroid is out of whack” -take thyroid meds! But this left me jittery and did nothing for my emotional roller coaster, abnormal weight gain, fatigue, high cholesterol, mental fogginess, and lastly irregular menses. I feel like a new person! Emotionally now I look forward to daily events instead of ” the daily grind and duties”. Physically, I have lost 24 pounds and steadily losing inches!
I’m off the emotional roller coaster ride, I have tons of energy, my brain is sharp as a tack again, my cholesterol is down, and periods are like clockwork (truly a first in my lifetime). My future looks bright and healthy now – I can even invision having a baby now! Thank you Dr. Chad Yarbrough for welcoming me into your clinic and for the personalized care.
At 34, and after 13 years of marriage, my husband and I had not been given a lot of hope for getting pregnant without a great deal of medical interventions. My list of doctors included endocrinologists, gynecologists, gastroenterologists, and fertility specialists. Feeling as if all my symptoms, of over 10 years, were tied to hormones I continued to seek a doctor who was willing to listen and to see the bigger picture of what my body might be saying with all the symptoms. Dr. Yarbrough did just that! He took time to gather my medical history and information on all my symptoms (many of which seemed insignificant to other doctors). I remember Dr. Yarbrough warning that if they were correct, my female hormones would quickly respond, and we should either take precautions or plan to get pregnant. Although we were fine with getting pregnant, I was completely shocked (and very thankful) to be pregnant after only being on the recommended treatment plan for five weeks! Not only that, they continued to work with me to make sure my digestive issues would not be an issue during pregnancy. I’ve had an easy and healthy pregnancy, and I think it is in part due to their proactive supplement recommendations, which were all approved by my OB. As soon to be parents of a healthy baby girl, we are so thankful to have found Dr. Yarbrough!
