That understanding of the inner workings of metals and the fusing of different materials to create a new product gave him a greater clarity of how the different parts of the human body work together to create the whole. He used that knowledge during his time at Life Chiropractic College, and in 1993 graduated the top of his class as valedictorian. His passion for holistic health care led him to become one of the earliest certified clinical nutritionists in Florida.

Patients typically seek treatment for pain, so he uses the best methods for reducing their pain as quickly and safely as possible. He uses chiropractic methods to reduce subluxation and fixation of the joints, acupuncture to reduce inflammatory response—which can hinder healing—Applied Kinesiology to determine and treat muscle imbalances and weaknesses and Active Release Technique to remove adhesions to the soft tissues and nerve entrapments.

Donald Curry

Certified Advanced Rolfer®

Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach


[email protected]

Don Curry is an advanced Rolfer and educator, practicing in South Florida since 1978.

He has offices in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

Services offered: Structural Bodywork; The Rolfing Series; Advanced Rolfing Sessions; Postural Alignment

Areas of specialty: Pain relief; sports injury; sports performance; healthy aging

Philosophical Approach: According to Dr. Ida P. Rolf, “If a person feels insecure, they probably are.” We don’t just have a body, we are a body. The body is the medium through which we experience life and affect the world. Our physical, emotional and characterological structures are expressed in our posture and movement. Our bodies bear the history of our traumas. Bodily pain, limitation and lack of energy occur simultaneously as limitation in our emotions and character. Moving the body to balance, support and openness supports an increased balance and openness in all areas of our life. Touch is preverbal; it cannot be resisted by logical arguments or justifications. Bringing the body to coherence is an ingenious and effective way to increase harmony in one’s life.

Rebecca Sherry Eshraghi, PhD, DNM

Natural Health Power Works, LLC

2645 Executive Park Dr., Weston FL 33331


[email protected]

Rebecca Sherry Eshraghi, PhD is passionate about helping people attain better lives, vitality and wellness, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Her goal is to empower her clients to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing while guiding them via natural healing modalities. Due to highly individualized protocols, she spends a significant amount of time with each client in order to learn their history, determine imbalances in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual life, find the root causes of their symptoms, provide appropriate recommendations and develop customized protocols.

Services offered: Bio-individual Nutrition; Detoxification; Weight Loss; Micro-nutrients. Holistic approach to wellbeing, providing clients with a better understanding of their thoughts, emotions, beliefs and attitudes which can manifest as physical discomforts and hinder the pathway to healing. Herbs, plants and essential oils are utilized to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

Areas of specialty: allergies; autism; ADHD; autoimmune disease; detoxification; gastrointestinal health; immune system support; bio-individual nutrition; mood disorders; insomnia; weight loss

Philosophical Approach: Eshraghi’s philosophy is simple yet complex: Instead of suppressing symptoms, find the root cause of the disease and adjust the imbalances that caused the symptoms in the first place. Natural and holistic approaches to health and wellbeing used as complementary and preventive measures can carry great benefits throughout life, especially in our modernized world where we are bombarded with ever increasing harmful chemicals and pollutants. Ideally, one should take care of health long before serious disease sets in; we might not be able to change our genes but we can control if some genes express themselves or not (epigenetics). The principle of wholeness is very important—no organ is isolated from the whole of the body. Health and wellness are a result of personalized nutrition, physical fitness, healthy mental and emotional responses and stimulus and incorporating our spiritual entity into our holistic being.

DISCLAIMER: Natural Medicine is complementary healthcare and unintended for diagnosis, prescription or treatment of disease and is not licensed in Florida nor a substitute for medical care.
