Dr. Tad Tenney of Boulder Wellness will be bringing his ideas about the natural treatment of diabetes to Moapa Valley residents at a seminar later this month. Tenney is a chiropractor based in Boulder City who also specializes in the natural treatment of diabetes and neuropathy, which is pain usually in the hands and feet from nerve damage commonly caused by diabetes.
“Most people who are diagnosed with diabetes are put directly into the medical world full of medications and prescriptions,” Tenney said.
Tenney said that he feels that diabetes is less of a medical condition and more of a chronic condition frequently caused by nutritional deficiencies. “If those nutritional deficiencies are addressed and righted, many times symptoms related to diabetes and neuropathy can improve to the point that medication may not be necessary,” he said.
Tenney emphasizes that no treatment is magic. How well his treatments work, and how long they last, depends a lot on the person being treated. “The effectiveness of this kind of treatment depends on how a person modifies their habits and sticks to the lifestyle changes, but in some cases, the changes may be permanent,” he said. “Some of my patients who have stuck to their plans have improved to the point where they ask their doctors to take them off their medicications.”
Tenney said that he simply offers people an alternative approach to treating their diabetes and neuropathy and gives them a choice.
Tenney is not a Nevada native. He was born and raised in Prescott, Arizona. But after high school, his education took him to Utah. Tenney accomplished his undergraduate work at a variety of Utah schools including Salt Lake Community College, Snow College, and a Utah-based satellite of New York’s Excelsior College. After completing an Associate of Arts and a Bachelors of Science, Dr. Tenney moved to Texas, where he received his Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas.
Following graduation, Tenney settled in Boulder City with his family to begin his practice in 1999. Tenney said he chose Boulder City because it was a perfect fit for his family.
Tenney will be presenting a free informational seminar about his natural wellness care at the Northshore Inn in Overton on Wednesday October 25, 2017, at 5:00pm. The seminar will introduce Dr. Tenney’s ideas and his natural alternative approach to controlling diabetes and neuropathy. The seminar is free of charge, although advance registration is requested where possible. Seats can be reserved by calling 1-888-361-9509.
Tenney says he is excited to come to Moapa Valley. “The information in the seminar helped change my life so I am happy and excited to share this information with others,” he said. “Perhaps it will help them to change their lives as well.”
