​​​HOLISTIC MEDICINE  
                  & WELLNESS

Welcome!


DESIGN AND VITALITY

Dr. Ray Bayley, DC, DCBCN, has an underlying holistic assumption that the human body is generally well-designed, has vitality (vitalities, vital force, chi, prana, etc), and wants to heal and be well (what some call innate intelligence).


He prefers to NOT have the too-common assumption that the body is generally poorly-designed, readily veers off kilter, and is doomed to failure repeatedly throughout life. That too-common       assumption justifies

     risky procedures,

     tolerating negative side effects,

     not seeking safer and more deeply healing paths,

     using chemicals that are not native to human metabolism,

     "painting over the problem picture",

     otherwise forcing and oppressing natural processes,

     using "band-aids" beyond acute necessity,

     and allowing "band-aids" to substitute for controlling and fixing causes and causes of causes.
All of that is NOT as often necessary as most people and too often mainstream medicine assume.


The holistic assumption, Doc Ray has, and he hopes more and more healers have, talks of

     support,

     nurturing,

     mobilizing,

     aligning,

     balancing,

     otherwise assisting the vital design to work well and vitality to manifest

     so that causes and causes of causes etc can be addressed,

        susceptibilities decreased so triggers don't cause such bad reactions,

        and health is moved towards better function, if not radiance.

This happens through addressing the human as an inter-acting and intra-acting whole, the teamwork of the systems and levels.



MACRO AND MICRO FORM -> FUNCTION

Having gotten his doctorate in chiropractic where historically much was said about "form determines function", and then board-certification in clinical nutrition, where chemical structure determines function, Doc Ray thinks of mobilizing, aligning, and balancing the macro and micro structures. The former include joints, muscles, fascia, etc (see the "BODYWORK" section on the "SERVICES" webpage). The latter includes hormones, neurotransmitters, nutrients and the rest of metabolism (see the "CLINICAL NUTRITION/CLINICAL METABOLISM" section on the "SERVICES" webpage), and even vitality phases (see the "ACUPUNCTURE AND OTHER ASPECTS OF ASIAN MEDICINES" section on the "SERVICES" webpage) and electrical signals (see the "NEUROPSYCH" and "DUAL-CHANNEL FREQUENCY-SPECIFIC MICROCURRENT" sections on the "SERVICES" webpage).



​MIND-BODY

While Doc Ray has a degree in psychology, he tends to recommend techniques, websites, and books and refer to other professionals for intense thought, talk, and behavior work in the realm of psychology-sociology-communication-spirituality. Instead he uses his clinical nutrition, clinical metabolic work, to seek abundance and balance of the neurotransmitters and otherwise health of the brain and nerve tissues, to help the mind, emotions, etc work better and more easily. In a sense, the former is the software and the latter, what he tends to concentrate on, is the hardware.
