Dr. Hashimoto’s mission is help as many people reach their full health potential as possible in the Coachella Valley. He specializes in natural health and life extension using various evidence based and holistic methods.
He graduated top of his class and was originally pursuing a career in Dentistry until he was in a head on collision. After chiropractic had helped him, he knew his mission was clear. He vowed to learn everything he could about the human body so he too could help others that were in pain. After he finished his Bachelor’s degree at the University of British Columbia he headed south to study at the prestigious Southern California University of Health Sciences. He was heavily involved in the various technique clubs and held positions in some as president.
After his residency, he completed hundreds of hours of post-graduate education in pain management. This focuses on the evaluation and treatment for various nerve, muscle and joint injuries to different body parts from automotive accidents to sports injuries. While treating his patients, he noticed significant differences in healing times for some of his patients. The healthier ones recovered a lot quicker and the unhealthy ones healed very slowly, if at all. At that point, Dr. Hashimoto realized that in order to truly treat and correct his patient’s problems, he would have to treat the entire patient, and not just the pain. This is when he started studying functional medicine.
Functional medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with correcting the true cause of health problems instead of providing a pill to just cover up the symptom. This is used to slow the aging process and correct acid reflux, chronic fatigue, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, fibromyalgia, neuropathy and many other chronic diseases. These diseases are very complex and often intermingled with various symptoms.
Teaching his patients how to manage their own health is of the upmost importance, but Dr. Hashimoto soon realized that too many people are sick in this country and the only way to reach the masses is by giving lectures and writing a book.
So he did, he started out by teaching at the community level and has also taught at the college level (Seattle Community College) as well. He teaches various classes in the valley, from basic health to golf swing mechanics, from foot pain/numbness to weight loss. He enjoys them all.
He has also just finished writing his first two books as well. “The Chiropractic Way, To Health” and “Harmony House: Wholistic Health Part I”.
Dr. Hashimoto is married to his wife, Dr. Nora Coleman, since 2007. They started out as lab partners and have stayed as partners ever since. He enjoys hiking, running, playing most sports and reading a good book. Although he enjoyed the North West, his wife convinced him to relocate to La Quinta for its sunny, warm climate and they have enjoyed the weather ever since. They have two boys, Leo and Eli who are light up the world with their smiles.
