Kurt Perkins

Kurt Perkins is on a mission to change and challenge the way we, as Americans, look at and practice health. He holds a bachelors degree in biochemistry from Roberts Wesleyan College and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College. He is currently making his wellness claims formal by completing his Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner degree through the International Chiropractic Association. Since his formal schooling ended, Dr. Kurt has been developing his real world education as a full time wellness practitioner, speaker, and writer. It became apparent to Dr. Kurt that from a biochemical perspective, his studies lead him in a direction to know more and more about less and less. With his patients and audience, his goal is to put the microscopic world of biology and physiology into real world human application in which people get and stay well. “In order for behaviors to change, I have to dig deep with people and challenge their belief systems.” Dr. Kurt currently lives in Colorado Springs, CO, with his wife of almost 2 years. He and his wife stay active physically on one of the largest playgrounds in the country -- Pikes Peak and its surroundings. They love to travel, snowboard, and frequent the DVD rentals at their neighborhood Red Box. Dr. Kurt is active in the community volunteering time with the Springs Rescue Mission and Junior Achievement. To sum up Dr. Kurt, his mission is “Leading Humanity on a Lifelong Journey to T.R.U.E. Health.”
