There is a chiropractic health center in Bergen County that is owned and operated by a team of healthcare professionals with 50+ years of experience in chiropractic, homeopathy, nutrition and sports medicine. They also happen to be two generations of a local family with strong ties to the community.
Dr. David M. Coonrad, his wife Linda Schefers Coonrad and their daughter Dr. Hailey D. Coonrad of Valley Natural Health in Paramus, bring unique health and wellness treatment options to the region based upon a philosophy that the whole body is an integrated system and should be treated as a whole for a fast and complete recovery.
Valley Natural Health provides chiropractic care, sports injury treatment, classical homeopathy, soft tissue manipulation, postural exercises, lifestyle advice and Standard Process Nutritional and Herbal Supplement Plans. Their unique combination of treatments have been extracted from the most effective elements of many different methods and merged into a system that leads to consistent and predictable results. They are a physically active local family with deep roots in area athletics, and draw on each other's knowledge and skills adding a unique dimension to the quality of care offered by the Valley Natural Health team.
Over the past 40 years, Dr. David Coonrad has accumulated techniques and philosophies which provide consistent results for his practice members. A graduate of the Columbia Institute of Chiropractic, Dr. David was compelled by an interest in the mind/body connection to study a wide range of natural, holistic healing methodologies which included bio-magnetics, acupuncture, deep myofacial release techniques, applied kinesiology and many other chiropractic methods.
Dr. David is active in the community as a coach, referee and administrator of youth soccer, in addition to being the father of five athletic children. He has treated athletes from the youth to professional levels, including Bergen County area high school and collegiate athletes and even professionals who have played for the New York Yankees, New York Giants and the New York Cosmos. Dr. David was also the team chiropractor for the Arsenal/World Class U-18 Girls national semi-finalist soccer team. In 2005 the "soccer doctor" was selected as the team chiropractor for the Metrostars Major League Soccer team.
Homeopathy is a health philosophy and practice based on the fact that the body has an inborn ability to heal itself. Homeopathy treats each person as a unique individual with the goal of stimulating each person's natural healing ability. A homeopath selects the appropriate remedy based on the individual's specific symptoms and personal level of health. Chiropractic and homeopathy present opportunities to better balance the body by actually helping to clear interferences to each individual's natural expression of who they are. After witnessing dramatic improvements in the health of family members as a result of homeopathic care, Linda Schefers Coonrad began studying homeopathy and in 1995, completed formal studies at The New England School of Homeopathy.
