Millar Chiropractic Functional Medicine (Williams Ave)
Functional medicine is a personalized systems approach where the Doctor looks at the whole body as one naturally. Functional medicine gets to the "root cause" or true cause of a problem and not the symptoms and treats that true cause. It incorporated the use of sophisticated testing from traditional and functional laboratories to aid in finding the true cause.
True Cellular DetoxTM
Millar Chiropractic Functional Medicine is proud to announce that it has been selected to join the True Cellular DetoxTM clinics nationwide. True Cellular DetoxTM is on the medical forefront detoxing the body and brain at the cellular level. This is not a flush like a 10 day flush, or a kidney flush or cleanse, or a liver flush or cleanse, or a colon flush or cleanse. Don't get me wrong there is a place for these flushes; and, they may be helpful. But, True Cellular DetoxTM go upstream to the cells themselves and detoxes the cells of the body and brain. The results have been amazing. Attend one of our free talks on True Cellular Detox.
Getting Started at Millar Chiropractic Functional Medicine
At Millar Functional Medicine, healing is based on a partnership between you and your doctor. It's a process, a journey, together. For years you have been going to the Doctor for "sick care" now your coming to us for "health care" or "wellbeing" care . This is an entirely different process. This is NOT spend 10 min with the Doctor; and, if he can't help you, he refers to another Doctor that spends 10 min with you. This is why we want to provide guidance for how to get started on your healing journey. To begin, we are partners with you in your journey to Health and Optimal Wellness. Next, it is important to understand that healing depends not only on doing the right things, but doing them in the right order. Doing the right thing in the wrong order may result in failure or worsening of the illness. Finally, natural healing takes time. It took you a while maybe even years to get into your state of sickness; and, it will take time to reverse the process and heal the body naturally.
The Right Order of Things: Peeling The Onion of Chronic Disease
As we begin your journey to optimal wellness, there are often many things to do; and, it is difficult to choose which to do first. Illness is never simply one discreet process or dysfunction, but rather a bundle of factors - genetics, early influences, environment, diet, lifestyle, habits, travel, stress, relationships, work and beliefs - woven into your story and biology. Understanding the original causes, or root causes, for your illness is an essential task to determine where we start first, which layer to peel away, or which knot to untangle in the web of physiologic dysfunction and disease. Over the past 22 years, Dr. Millar and his team of Doctors and health practitioners have established principles and well-traveled routes to healing that are straightforward. These enable us to make sense of chronic disease and involve examining the entire body system. This is what we call Functional Medicine.
Our first task, as partners, is to seek the root or true cause(s) of your illness, your "Why". We have identified six root causes for illness: Genetics; Inflammation; Toxins, Allergies & Antigens; Infections: (Bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, parasites, and prions); Stress; and Lifestyle. Our second task is to identify and implement the five “ingredients” needed for your optimal health and biological function. We have found after years of practice that Diet, Rest, Exercise, Activity and Mental State are essential elements of Optimal Health. Then you learn to DREAM Optimal Health and Wellbeing by implementing DREAM lifestyle changes.
The presence of any one of the six root causes of disease and the absence of any one of the five optimal health essential ingredients creates imbalance in the body’s physiological process and systems and lays the foundation for chronic disease. This often expresses itself genetically by turning on or off a gene or group of genes. Together, we will become experts in assessing the deficiency of these “ingredients” and provide the necessary conditions for thriving. Throughout your journey, you will think less of ‘naming’ your disease, and more about understanding what is driving it, what is your Root Cause or True Cause of your disease or problem and what is your WHY.
Fortunately, the body knows how to heal itself if we remove the impediments and provide the proper conditions in the right order. This takes time, patience and persistence. The trick lies in having a place to start and understanding how to peel back the layers of dysfunction and in what order. So we want to teach you a easy to remember acronym: DREAM. Live your DREAM. Where "D" stands for Diet (anything you eat or drink); "R" stands for Rest (both sleep and downtime); "E" stands for Exercise (in all of its forms); "A" stands for Activity. (motion is life and life is motion); and "M" stands for Mental (in all of its expressions like, stress, happiness, guilt, worthiness, love, community and relationships). We want you to DREAM Optimal Health & Wellbeing. Help us to help you to live your DREAM and Live Longer, Younger.
What is the Right Order?
These 9 steps are listed in our order of priority for finding and treating the underlying or true cause of your chronic illness. This is how we practice Functional Medicine. And, what we have found is following this path leads to the most success in healing. Sometimes we take them out of order doing like doing the last step first or the first step last. Sometimes we will do multiple things at once. Healing is a process, a journey, and not always a linear one. We tailor the treatment to you – making adjustments each step along the way until we get it just right, for you. In order for you to obtain Optimal Health we together must set goals. A health goal is a do list & measured results list with a time line. We often start by telling patients don't try too do to much all at once. It's better to "do a little better everyday in everyway". We find that many patients want to work on one new area of the Optimal Health Arrow a month. Some want to go faster, some slower. It often depends on your starting point. We find that some patients take longer especially if they have more serious conditions. But all patients need a goal and we want your goal to be Optimal Health and To Live Longer, Younger.

Dr. Greg Millar, DC CCEP | Chiropractor, Founder & CEO of Millar Chiropractic Clinics. In 2014 after 20+ years in Chiropractic practice and doing over 500 local TV shows, Dr. Millar got sick. Really sick. First came the chronic fatigue and adrenal burnout next came the inflammation and joint pain. Then Type II Diabetes, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, IBS, then Neuropathy, He said, "I was miserable. I went from Doctor to Doctor trying to find out what was wrong with me. No Answers just medications." Then he went to Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. "I was shocked, he said. This was what I was looking for all along. They looked at the "whole me", They recommend detox as my heavy metals and toxic chemicals were off the chart. It took a year but they got me well and back on my feet again." Thank God
So in 2015 Dr. Millar embarked on a new pathway, Functional Medicine. After 22+ years in practice and successfully treating thousands of patients with chiropractic problems, Dr Millar wanted to do more for his patients with chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia, IBS, Anxiety, Hormone problems, Thyroid disorders and Diabetes to name a few. He saw the failure of traditional medicine in treating these chronic disorders. "The combination of Big Medicine and Big Phama just left so many patients, like me, on the sidelines with health problems and pain without a true diagnosis or treatment" stated Dr Millar. "I got frustrated seeing patients with shopping list of medications and their doctors not checking anything off their problem list." So Dr. Millar went back to school at Kingdom College of Natural Health and the Functional Medicine University and started taking classes in Functional Medicine. Along the way he slowly started treating some functional medicine patients. Somehow the word got out and the patients are coming in droves to see Dr. Millar for functional medicine. Dr Millar said, "I hope to finish my Naturopathic Doctor's degree in 2019. I will then sit for the NMD exam.
He still specializes in treating Herniated and Bulging disc at our sister company Alabama Laser Spine Decompression and Neuropathy at the Neuropathy Laser Center Huntsville. He is also a Certified Extremity doctor holding the CCEP designation. Dr Millar is known for his diagnostic "rock turning over" "find the root cause" practice. Dr Millar likes to say, "If you don't really know what is causing the problem, you can't fix it."
Dr Millar invented the "Millar Facet/Stenosis Table" with the "Millar Facet Protocol" to treat Facet/Stenosis pain from stenosis, degenerative facet disease, facet arthropathy, facet syndrome. He uses light force adjustments, disc pumps, decompression traction, core stabilization and other physiotherapy to treat bulged and herniated disc problems. Dr Millar practiced for years with the neurosurgeons of UAB Dept of Neurosurgery handling their disc and facet cases before and after surgery.
Dr Millar treats bulging and herniated disc, stenosis, degenerative disc disease and failed back surgery syndrome. He also treats Neuropathy and joint pain (ie. knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, wrist pain).
Dr. Bonnie Sims, ND M.Div | Naturopathy Doctor and Counseling. Dr. Sims holds a Doctorate degree in Naturopathy from Trinity College of Natural Health she is also holds a Masters Degree in Divinity, Theology from Emory University. She did her undergraduate studies at Athens State University where she is still Adjunct Faculty. She was formally with Decatur General Hospital.
She enjoys natural health care without drugs or surgery if possible. She tries to get to the root cause of health issues and treat the root cause and not the symptoms. She feels that health care in America has "gone off the rails." She stated that, "Health care today is not about the patient it's about money money money." Doctors have lost site of the patient and spending enough time with each to really discover what is wrong and what can be done to help them. In addition to treating her patients naturally she finds that so many of them have underlying emotional issues that need to be worked through and rearranged. The sheer amount of stress that people care today is unreal. She stated that probably 80% of weight gain is emotional or stress related.
