HOW CAN ASHBURN FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC HELP YOU? 

The body’s enemies take on many forms — stress, seasonal changes, environmental contaminants. They’re virtually everywhere, hoping to capitalize on a moment of weakness. It’s a fight that never stops. It’s a fight that we want to win. Though we can’t make the immune system invincible to these pressures, we can make it more prepared.

We’ve partnered with Juice Plus+, Standard Process, and dōTERRA Essential Oils to bring you the products we have tried AND trust for immune support, building, and restoration as well as your overall well-being.  

Juice Plus+ products are made from the juice powder concentrates and oils from more than 40 different fruits, vegetables, and grains. While Juice Plus+ isn’t a substitute for eating fruits and vegetables, our whole food-based products support a healthy diet by offering a much wider variety of naturally occurring vitamins, along with antioxidants and phytonutrients found in fruits and vegetables. Every Juice Plus+ product is made from farm-fresh quality ingredients, providing the natural nutrients your body needs.
