Dr. Tim Jackson, DPT received his undergraduate degree in Health science and chemistry from Wake Forest University in 2003. He completed his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from the Medical University of SC in 2009. Realizing that manual therapy and orthopedic care helped only some of his patients, he began studying functional and environmental medicine, as well as digestive health, in an effort to help others achieve wellness.

During this episode, Dr. Tim Jackson will talk about the different vitamins the body needed to obtain optimal bone density for overall body health. He also stresses the importance of gut health for proper vitamins absorption. Just as important about the gut topic was this hormonal health.
