As a child I sat on the lap of Bartlett J. (B.J.) Palmer; son of the father of chiropractic, Daniel Palmer

Dr. Thibodeau is a third generation chiropractic doctor. His mother, father and grandfather were DC's. He also has other family members who currently practice chiropractic. "As a kid our mother and father would take us to Palmer, Davenport for the Lyceum. I sat on the lap of Bartlett Joshua “B.J.” Palmer as he told me not to touch all the knives and spears hanging on the wall. He said they may still have poison on them. I still remember B.J. giving his lectures to thousands of DC's."

Outside the office

dr_thibodeau_and_wife.jpgMy wife Judy, previously an RN, works here in the office and is the manager of everything, even me. She is an exorbitantly energetic woman! We also established a bonded and licensed winery, we farm our own Pinot Noir grapes and make the wine. I love driving tractors and farm machinery. Remember if you are driving a manure spreader, don't back it up!

We have 3 daughters and 1 son. My oldest daughter is an engineer with a masters degree and works for GOOGLE, she will be married this coming October. Another daughter is also an engineer with her masters and works for NVIDIA, she is currently working in Berlin with her husband and son, our first grandchild. My son is also an engineer, and our youngest daughter has studied art and is really quite good. Back in the 50's when I was in high school, none of the females were prompted to study the sciences, and certainly not engineering, so I gave all of our kids the opportunity to study lots of math, physics and chemistry.

Most mornings I get up at 4 am to read the scientific literature relative to the science of lifestyles. Much of my studies include environmental issues. We have a solar home producing electricity via photovoltaics and hot water via solar water panels. We have 80 photovoltaic panels and 19 hot water panels with a very sophisticated automated control system.

At almost 70 years old, my shape and health are excellent and I have never made a medical insurance claim in my life.

I do at least 9 hours of vigorous exercise per week including fairly heavy weight lifting, right and left unassisted one arm pull-up and then pull-ups with 90#'s, i.e. two 45 lb plates hanging off my waist, 20 rapid dead lifts with 225 lbs and then a few with 315 lbs or higher - it all depends on who is watching. I run the 86 stairs at Capitola 20 times as fast as I can go. I always get at least one chiropractic adjustment per week and we eat a Paleo Diet.

My family does not and never has had a medicine cabinet, we use no drugs. My mother a Doctor of Chiropractic (now deceased) used to say to us 6 kids, your fever is healthy. It is so good you have a fever, and this was back in the 40's and 50's when fevers were looked at as something terrible.
