Dr. Christian Farthing has been a Chiropractic patient since he was 6 months old. His mother Valerie, having had training as a nurse, experienced the work of modern-day medicine as we know it today. She respected that medication may help people fighting for their existence, but unfortunately could not aid the prevention of them from getting unwell from the start. She also saw a number of people die subject to chronic condition, several of which may have been prevented.Coming from a family of 5 siblings, Dr. Christian Farthing valued the value of family also, the role total health played in the success of a household. â€œYour family will only be as happy as your unhealthiest and unhappiest childâ€ are the words that resonate with Dr. Farthing today as he now takes care of more than 12,500 patients, more than half of these families within the Canterbury area., Chiropractor Canterbury.
