Faces of LIFE: Dr. Joe Esposito
Dr. Joe Esposito
Getting You Well and Keeping You Well
Alumnus: Doctor of Chiropractic (Class of 1984)
Dr. Joseph Louis Esposito, known as “Dr. Joe” to his colleagues, patients and friends, has been called one of the most dynamic and authoritative international nutritional experts of our time. Dr. Joe, because of his knowledge, expertise and legendary sense of humor, is a highly sought-after speaker by corporations, educational institutions and international sporting events.
He is also a nationally recognized radio and television consultant and a pioneer in the field of nutrition, health and longevity. His leading-edge research in the field of food and its effects on all aspects of health and disease has helped thousands of people.
Dr. Joe is the president and clinic director of Health Plus Wellness Center, a multidisciplinary healthcare center in Marietta, Georgia specializing in prevention health care and life extension.
Dr. Joe says, “When I learned about Chiropractic, for the first time things started to make sense as to why my dad was in pain.” And he realized that there was hope through Chiropractic, and when his father’s misaligned spine was corrected, it reduced his pain and allowed his organs to function at a much higher level. Chiropractic allowed his father to return to a more normal life, and when Dr. Joe saw his father’s miraculous transformation, he thought, “I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life – to naturally help people get well and stay well.”
Dr. Joe also hosts a nationally syndicated radio show called “The Dr. Joe Show” that allows him to have the venue to spread the principled chiropractic message to tens of thousands of people every week. Dr. Joe adds, “The positive response to every show is overwhelming. I feel very blessed to have this opportunity and plan on doing this for a long, long time.”
Education and Training
Dr. Joe is a 1984 Life Chiropractic College (now Life University) Doctor of Chiropractic (magna cum laude) graduate. About his choice of schools, he says, “I chose Life University because it was the best education available, and the more I discovered about Chiropractic, the more amazed I was at how far reaching it could be.” Next, he began to research nutrition and found the “whole package of health” – removing interference from the nervous system to allow the brain to communicate with the body; improving the digestive system; and giving the body the food it requires to function at 100%. Along with being board certified in Chiropractic, Dr. Joe is also board certified in pain management and orthopedics, and double board certified in nutrition.
The Holistic Approach
“I want to get you well and keep you well.” This is the principle by which Dr. Joe runs his practice. He believes in a holistic approach that involves fixing pinched nerves, repairing the digestive system and teaching his patients good nutritional habits. He treats patients with a variety of conditions and of all ages and says, “I want to reach as many people as possible to prevent them from suffering needlessly. It is so satisfying when a patient is able to understand the cause of his or her health issue, and we are able to treat the cause, not just the symptoms.”
