It is always a pleasure and rewarding experience to visit Dr. Fox. As a yoga instructor, a well-aligned body is of prime importance to me. I suffer from scoliosis and, sometimes, a little too much exuberance in my practice which gets me into trouble. I visit him regularly to tweak things and keep me running smoothly. My training has taught me how to listen deeply to my body, but I can always depend on Dr. Fox to find things I cannot. Straight chiropractic is not enough for me; it doesn't treat the whole person. The applied kinesiology and nutritional information round out the treatments nicely and help me get to the root of my issues. I'm with Dr. Fox in believing that what we put in our mouths affects our health. He's a good listener and a gentle and thorough practitioner. I would recommend him to anyone, and I do.
My husband,Sean, just left after his second visit and I just want to tell you that you absotively posiLUTELY ROCK! :) He feels GREAT and is really amazed at the whole process of the adjustments/how you were working on his jaw as well as the diet info you're giving him (which we can both benefit from - I had NO idea about the fruits vs. veggies information!!!!). He's impressed with how you read the x-rays and how informed you seem to be all-around. I hope you understand how BIG that is... my husband is NOT impressed by people in the medical field very easily! :) It's a HUGE compliment! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!! :)
Dr. Ryan Fox is the fourth (and will be the last) chiropractor whose services I have used. As a young chap recently graduated from chiropractic college, he seems to have many more modes of treatment than my prior chiropractors knew (or atleast that they used) Dr. Fox knows how to manipulate the body in many ways beyond standard spinal adjustments to relieve aches and pains, and he is an expert on nutrition as well.
I'll always be grateful I had the sense, recently, to get a "second opinion" from Dr. Fox. I was suffering from a sore left heel that was causing some pain to me during my aerobics classes. Duke Sports Medicine sent me to an orthopedic expert, and this doctor told me I had to give up not only my aerobics classes (which I go to six days a week as a rule) but walking my four dogs. The orthopedist said I'd have to give up these important activities for eleven months! Central to Dr. Fox's alternative treatment of my painful heel was that I continue the aerobics classes and dog walks without interruption while he treated me once a week for five weeks via a myriad of manipulations.
I am now free of pain and as active of ever thanks to the personable and talented Ryan Fox.

"When I started seeing Dr. Fox, I was experiencing a lot of problems with my upper body, especially in my shoulders and neck. Dr. Fox examined me and performed some adjustments, and quickly determined that the source of my problems was not the areas in distress, but, rather, a collapsed arch in my left foot. He showed me some simple exercises to do, provided sound advice and information, and recommended that I be fitted with orthotics. Since receiving them, my feet, back, shoulders and neck are benefiting from correct alignment. Thanks to Dr. Fox's expert care and insight I am able to once again enjoy life to its fullest."

On the Standard Process Cleansing Program, I experienced constant energy, no lows or highs, better attitude & more relaxed, sleeping better, and I want to continue eating this way. On this 21 day program, I lost 17 pounds in 17 days, never feeling hungry, and I am having no more stomach aches and no more bloating or discomfort.
We recently moved to Chapel Hill from the midwest to be near our children. After searching several months I was referred to Dr. Fox by new friends. Because of their enthusiasm about Dr. Fox and their own good health, I called immediately for an appointment.
My husband, who suffers from a rare form of dementia and is now in a healthcare facility, had a severe set-back which puzzled the nursing staff. He was in bed, not responding to any communication or even able to talk, the outlook was not good. The nursing staff was planning on taking him to the hospital if he did not improve by the next day. When I relayed this information to Dr. Fox, he visited my husband that evening after he closed his office, treated my husband using Chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology, and within 10 minutes had my husband awake and talking and anxious to get out of bed to the amazement of the staff at the facility!
Let me mention that my greatest fear of making the move to this area was having to leave my alternative health care doctors in Ohio. I have several structural issues-some from birth and others inherited with age. I continue to be amazed at the care I receive from Dr. Fox-he has filled the shoes of all three of my former doctors. My joints are functioning with more flexibility than they have in years.
Another member of our family-our daughter was in an auto accident in which her vehicle flipped over. My immediate response was "you have to see Dr. Fox" because of the muscle trauma to her body. After just 5 visits she is feeling better than before the accident occurred.
Just one more- During many conversations with dear friends, who live in the southwest corner of North Carolina, about the excellent care I receive from Dr. Fox, they have decided to become "long distance patients" and see Dr. Fox each time they come to visit.
I am writing to just share my thoughts about the SP Cleanse I recently completed. First, I must say that it was an experience far better than I ever expected...I had read up a little bit on liver cleanses and what they were designed to do, what I was looking for was a safe way to kick the sugar habit, without the withdrawal symptoms that I had experienced in past attempts to get sugar out of my system.
I had purchased the cleanse system, read the brochures and also decided that to give myself a head start I would get a co0uple of manual lymphatic massages ust to help get rid of toxins...and I also increased my water intake to 96 oz. a day. I must admit, I was concerned about possible side affects, would I experience constipation, diarrhea, headaches, or just being plain grumpy????
So came the day to start the cleanse, I thought if i can get through the first couple of days, it will be easy going...What a fantastic surprise, those first few days were an absolute breeze, absolutely no negative side affects. By the 3rd day, I had LOTS more energy, I wasn't going to bed at 8:30 at night anymore...I'm still up at 10:30 PM and getting up around 5AM--and feeling rested and energetic (goodside benefit), I also started noticing I was feeling more clear headed, physically I am feeling lighter, not sluggish. I total I have lost 22 pounds on the cleanse, although losing weight was not the reason I got on the program, but this side benefit is one I'm very happy to experience. Just to be clear, I experienced non of the side effects that had concerned me.
I'm so happy that when I asked Dr. Fox for guidance on kicking the sugar habit he recommended the SP Cleanse Program.
