Terry has practiced as a functional medicine specialist, writer, and nutrition consultant, working both as a solo practitioner, and with physicians, integrative pharmacies, health websites, and nutraceutical manufacturers. As a graduate student, he worked in several Chinese medicine herbal pharmacies and extraction facilities, which has become a lifelong passion.

With a strong passion for regenerative medicine, Luke has also developed cutting-edge injection therapy protocols, and was one of the first acupuncturists nationwide to inject FDA approved regenerative medicine substances based on the traditional Chinese medicine, Zi He Che, or human placenta. These treatments represent one of the most powerful regenerative technologies available today. He offers these services both as a solo practitioner and in partnership with Summit Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.
