A Holistic Approach to Medicine

Wellness for your Mind, Body + Emotions

"To gain wisdom we must have knowledge and experience, to have knowledge and experience we must first be aware and to be aware we must have acceptance of our fear, worry, anger, sadness and grief." —Dr. Melinea Holman

Since 1995, Dr. Melinea Holman, DC has been serving Fort Myers and the Southwest Florida area with her holistic healthcare practice targeting five points of healing: physical, nutritional, emotional, mental, and spiritual.  She uses the patient’s natural healing abilities in conjunction with traditional and integrative medicine as means of therapy to treat and achieve the greatest possible results in her patients. She believes in treating the source of a physical ailment and not just the symptoms that manifest from it.  95% of all physical complaints can be tracked back to an energetic imbalance that stems from a prior emotional trauma or a belief system the patient holds, so just addressing the symptoms will not allow healing to occur at the root of the problem. The body has the ability to heal itself and Dr. Holman’s job is to help patients understand how they got to where they are and how to release their traumas and beliefs in order to move forward, heal, and arrive at their own best personal health.

Holman’s training is in chiropractics, nutritional therapy, and the Body Talk System.  Offering services such as Body Talk, Bio Scanning, Pre-screening & Analysis, Neurotransmitter Testing, Nutritional Therapy, and Chiropractics, she is able to use simple, non-invasive and effective holistic therapy to treat patients with all levels of ailments and make significant differences in their health that traditional medical care has not been able to do. With the Body Talk System, she helps reconnect the lines of communication of the body’s internal mechanisms to repair and prevent disease while rapidly stimulating the body’s innate ability to balance itself and accelerating the healing process. 

Her Bio-Scanning magnetic device picks up energetic disparities in organs, glands, and other parts of the body at their most basic levels. It is used as an adjunctive diagnostic and treatment technique to pick up imbalances years before they manifest into illness or disease and detect the proper supplemental protocol to correct them.

Her pre-screening tests and analysis methods are a safe and natural means of analyzing the body’s structural, physical, and nutritional needs. Tests such as CardioVision, Live Blood Cell Analysis, Nutritional Tissue Analysis, Neurotransmitter Laboratory Analysis, Bio-energy Testing, Contact Reflex Analysis, and Nail & Tongue Analysis are able to spot deficiencies that could cause or contribute to various acute or chronic health problems and prevent their development.   

Nutritional Therapy consists of a detailed nutrition and supplementation plan as natural solutions to many conditions including, but not limited to, diabetes, immune disorders, food allergies, fatigue, and impaired memory.  Even patients with no specific illnesses will benefit from supplements that cater to their bodies to maintain optimal health and function.

Being a holistic chiropractor, her approach to healing the body also includes spinal adjustments, as all functions of the body are completed based upon signals from the brain that travel down the spinal column to all organs, endocrine, and cells of the body. When the spinal segment is out of alignment, it usually indicates that an imbalance exists somewhere in the body and a chiropractic adjustment properly aligns the spine so nerve signals can be correctly conveyed.

Dr. Holman’s friendly, approachable personality, relaxing office environment, top notch training and expertise, and genuine passion for health sets her apart; she’s not just another doctor, she’s a doctor that can heal people in ways that no one else can.
