As one of the Lawrence area’s most prominent resources for quality healthcare, The Janssen Clinic of Natural Medicine specializes in a wide range of services to get patients feeling healthier than ever before. And while we work hard to offer top-of-the-line treatments that help you feel better and get better, we also focus on preventative strategies to ensure you stay better for longer.
Functional Nutrition Exam
Functional nutrition is the holistic evaluation of a person’s health. It encompasses nutrition, lifestyle, health history, and diet to determine what needs to be supported through nutrition. By supporting the body through nutrition, the body changes in a positive manner and conditions may be reduced or eliminated. By integrating this with chiropractic care, the physical functionality of the musculoskeletal system and the cellular function can be addressed through nutrition, maximizing the body’s ability to heal.
Over 20 years ago, functional nutrition was added to our practice because Dr. Janssen was noticing patterns with patients and he knew there was a way to help support these issues through nutrition. By adding functional nutrition, it allowed us to help our patients achieve their goals to live the lives they deserve.
Nutritional deficiencies and chronic degeneration changes have become common in this modern world. Due to increased stress, a diet that no longer resembles what our genetic coding was designed to utilize, and toxic exposure that exceeds normal abilities, nutritional therapy has developed as a way to support the human in today's landscape.
Dr. Janssen's continued pursuit of advanced nutritional training brings a new level of comprehensive nutritional evaluation and corrective recommendations. This includes specific targeted nutritional supplementation and gradual diet modification to intervene and allow a positive change in your current physiological state. Dr. Janssen uses this practice of "rational intervention" as a strategy to increase vitality and joy. We find that most physical conditions respond very well when deficiencies are corrected with specific nutritional support.
We encourage people to include nutritional evaluation as part of their whole person care. It is good to feel well and be vitalized! Our lives depend on this.
Dr. Janssen will evaluate your current condition, health history, lab results, and perform a detailed physical exam to determine which supplements you need. Our clinic has the highest quality nutritional supplements available on the market today. The majority of the supplements used are whole-food supplements that provide nutrition though natural organic sources, as opposed to synthetic manufactured vitamins. These supplements are only available to healthcare providers and are developed based on years of research. They allow optimal absorption into your body which increases the effectiveness of the therapy and is more cost effective for the patient. Dr. Janssen has visited this farm and seen first-hand how they use the healing power of nature with scientifically supported evidence to create high quality supplements. Dietary recommendations are often given to support and improve illness or injury recovery, or to enhance well-being.
We also offer virtual evaluations via phone or video chat.
Erchonia Cold Laser
Healing is essentially a cellular process. Cold Laser Therapy stimulates the cell activation process, which initiates a chain of reactions, from the cell membrane to the cytoplasm, to the nucleus and DNS. This is called cellular amplification, whose demonstration earned the Nobel Prize in 1994.
Unlike high power lasers that use heat to cut or burn tissue, low energy cold lasers boost biochemical reactions in the targeted tissue. Visible light is directed to a specific area, the light energy passes through the skin, and enters cell membranes by special light receivers. This increases the cells energy which results in changed cell membrane permeability. Several biological processes are then affected, such as ATP stimulation, that then initiates an increase in cell regeneration and protection, and decreases cell death.
The results for physical injuries and disorders include a reduction in swelling, an increase in tissue healing, reduction in pain, increased mobility, and maximum recovery.

WHAT CONDITIONS ARE TREATED WITH COLD LOW LEVEL LASERS?
The National Institutes of Health is currently conducting research on the use of low-level light for conditions involving neurology, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, degenerative brain disease, spinal cord injury, and peripheral nerve regeneration.
Most reviewed for use in physical medicine and rehabilitation, Low Lever Laser Therapy has shown to provide benefits for injuries and disorders, including significantly increased cell regeneration and healing, and decreased pain.
Dr. Janssen uses Erchonia Low-Level Cold Laser Therapy, combined with gentle chiropractic techniques to correct misalignments, to provide his patients with dramatic pain relief and healing associated with:
Headaches and Migraines
Sciatica and Leg Pain
Degenerative, Bulging or Herniated Discs
Sprains, Strains, Tendonitis
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and other inflammatory conditions like tennis elbow and bursitis
Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Conditions
Plantar Fascitis, Heel and Foot Pain
Cuts, Burns and Scars
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. This includes a combination of manual adjustments (both high velocity and light touch), as well as, instrument adjustments to deliver a healing experience that we hope you will find to be extraordinary. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Most importantly, we do not provide a "cookie-cutter" service in which everyone receives the same treatment. Your care will be personalized and provide you with a protocol that is geared toward your unique, individual needs. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Tate Janssen has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Ion Cellular Cleanse/Detox Foot Bath
Every day your body is under constant assault from an endless array of toxins in the air you breathe, the water you drink, even the food you eat. While your body has certain cleansing abilities, it can’t keep up. This therapy uses a water and sodium chloride solution in a foot bath as a conduit for exchanging ions. The energy field created within the body draws negative and positive ions together, helping negate their harmful effect while gently stimulating cellular cleansing. This assists your body in working at peak efficiency to better fight off allergies, arthritis, immune deficiencies, fatigue, decreased muscle function and much more.
The EB Pro Energy Balancing System is a therapy device which utilizes direct current to create an electromagnetic ionic field in which the patient places their feet in water. There is an attached array, and as a person is brought near this array, they are exposed to a low intensity ion field. Immersing the feet in water enables an electrical contact with all the primary meridians in the body, changing the electrical conductivity paths of the body.
By re-establishing the proper electrical conductive paths of the body, we place the body in a state of equilibrium or balance. This often can result in more energy, clearer thinking and a greater sense of well being.
EB Pro helps to balance the body’s energy channels/meridians providing more vitality – which also optimizes central nervous system function. The EB Cellular Cleanse Therapy has also shown in clinical trials to normalize the body's pH. Balancing the body's pH is critical in assisting the body in every aspect, from it's ability to detox to it's ability to fight infections.
Benefits of infrared sauna include detoxification, pain relief, lowered blood pressure, weight loss, relaxation, improved circulation, cell health and wound healing.
Infrared saunas, in many ways, mimic fever - our body's natural way to ward off illness by raising core body temperature.
Fever-range body temperature causes the body to favor anti-viral and anti-bacterial immune response
Stimulates immune function and makes the body less habitable for pathogens to fight off viruses
Stimulates white blood cells and increases antibodies against germs by increasing cellular energy
Far infrared wavelengths target toxins packed tightly within our fat and tissue, breaking them up so they can be released through sweat
A build-up of toxins can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxic substances helps to relieve symptoms and improve the overall health ecosystem
