State-of-the-art facility offers many health fields

Cariboo Chiropractic and Medical Centre in Williams Lake offers patients a little of everything.

Cariboo Chiropractic and Medical Centre in Williams Lake offers patients a little of everything by providing care with a variety of health-care practitioners.

The state-of-the-art building on Third Avenue beside 7-Eleven, features two Medical Doctors, Dr. Diana Das and Dr. Natalie Comeau; one Chiropractor,  Dr. Michael Bos; and two Registered Massage Therapists, Amber Rhiamon and Dayna Stevens.

“We have integrated many health fields in one convenient location,” said Bos, who purchased and renovated the old Hollywood Video building in late 2011 and began operating in March 2012.

Patients have the convenience of multiple appointments such as a massage then a chiropractic adjustment and/or a medical visit.

“We emphasize working as a team,” said Bos. “We want people to be comfortable and familiar with staff; often our receptionists know who’s calling by the sound of their voice.”

The latest addition to the Cariboo Chiropractic and Medical Centre has been ‘The Ideal Weigh,’ a weight loss protocol which has already yielded incredible results from nearly 50 local clients.

“As the clinic houses a good cross-section of health care, we felt this was a great addition to the clinic. Obesity is a huge detriment to musculo-skeletal health and leads to other health concerns such has high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and more,” said Bos.

Allison Bos, Dr. Bos’ wife and Natalie MacKay, have both participated in the weight loss protocol seeing first-hand the amazing results. Natalie, losing 140 pounds in under a year, now works as The Ideal Weigh’s coach, inspiring and motivating clients through their weight loss journey.

“There are a lot of compelling stories, such as a gentleman who lost 131 pounds and it is very invigorating for these people changing their lives,” said MacKay.

“I love seeing how overjoyed my clients are.”

What’s unique about The Ideal Weigh is that it does not require exercise but simply to be dedicated to the “Ideal Protein” protocol.

The science behind the protocol essentially puts a person into a state of mild ketosis, which is the metabolism of the body’s own fat stores, while consuming other whole foods to protect the lean muscle.

Each week, clients meet with Natalie to be weighed and have body measurements taken.

This is recorded in a personal health profile. So far, clients on the protocol have lost 2,700 pounds.

Dr. Bos was born and raised in Williams Lake. After graduating from Columneetza in 1994, he went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California.

He is now in his 14th year of practice.

Dr. Bos’ initial location was attached to the Sandman Hotel which he practiced from for over a decade until he took the leap of starting a new location.

“When I bought the new building I had only had one RMT committed to joining me. I renovated the facility with plenty of room to grow and expand,” said Bos.

“It was one of those ‘if you build it they will come’ attitudes.”

Dr. Bos and his wife have a daughter, Peyton, and both are avid scuba divers, boaters, and skiers.
