Dr. Marc hails from the small town of Peterborough, in Ontario Canada. He grew up extremely active, playing high level soccer as well as any sport he could fit into his day. Marc has always had a deep passion for health and wellness with his real passion in creating a life that optimizes health and vitality. He knew that finding a profession that helped people achieve their optimal health and wellbeing was his mission.
Chiropractic and Kinesiology
Marc studied Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario where he received a Bachelor of Kinesiology in 2013. While studying he interned as an assistant strength and conditioning coach with varsity athletes, training them to perform at an elite level. Throughout his time as a competitive soccer player, studying and training, chiropractic was always a staple in his routine for optimal health and performance. Following his graduation, Marc needed some adventure, so he decided to move over to Aotearoa to study at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic.
It is here where Marc became truly inspired by how amazing the human body really was. He was inspired by Chiropractic’s acknowledgment and emphasis of the amazing inborn ability that the body has to self-heal and self-regulate when given the chance. During his degree, Marc learned that an optimally functioning spine and thus a clear and connected nervous system is a corner stone to a healthy and high performing life.

What you buy may contain much less CBD than the label states — or much more. It may include more THC than you want and it may be contaminated with mold or pesticides. Ask to see testing reports.
Scant research means not much is known about side effects either. In epilepsy research, CBD changed the way the body processed other drugs. That suggests CBD could interact with medications in ways we still don’t know about.
Any side effects?
For now, the agency has said CBD is not allowed as an ingredient in food, drinks or dietary supplements.
A look at what we know as U.S. regulators work out what will and won’t be allowed:
Are CBD labels accurate?
In stating its position, the FDA cited a provision of the law prohibiting food makers from using active drug ingredients or those that are the subject of substantial research. But the agency doesn’t have the resources to police all the CBD products that are already available, said Marc Scheineson, a former FDA official.
Skin creams and cosmetics may be on safer footing with the FDA, but that too remains uncertain, said Camille Gourdet of RTI International, a nonprofit research institute in Durham, North Carolina. Though cosmetics aren’t subject to premarket approval by the FDA, they could run afoul of regulations if they make specific health claims.
