Genesis Health Institute (GHI), is the culmination of over 50 years of combined clinical experience. The owners, Dr. Douglas L. Weed and James Aguilar, RPT, MBA, have previously owned private clinics specializing in Chiropractic care, Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Therapies, and Physical Rehabilitation. Both Doug and Jim realize that despite everyone’s best efforts, the current medical model does not adequately address the needs of the population who are ready, willing and able to take responsibility and be accountable for their health and wellness. After several years of planning and development, we are pleased to launch our new, state of the art facility; Genesis Health Institute (GHI), located in Fairfield, CA.
The mission of GHI is to provide individuals a viable, success oriented, accountability-based health optimization option to the current medical model. Through in-depth consultation we partner with you to determine your current level of health and fitness, understand your unique perceived challenges, clarify your goals, and design a program to help you achieve your optimal fitness level.
GHI specializes in creating optimal health for our patients, emphasizing our four pillars of health- detoxification, diet, proper exercise and use of targeted nutriceuticals. We use advanced Functional and Metabolic Medicine testing and treatment protocols to ascertain the unique needs for each patient. Our detoxification programs and diet are designed to promote a healthy environment within your body. Exercise is targeted to increase muscle mass and stimulate metabolism while promoting loss of fat.
