About Us: The Staff of TNHC

Dr. Jeremy ThorntonDr. Jeremy Thornton, DC, DABCI, DCBCN is board certified by the American Board of Chiropractic Internists and the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition, and is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Missouri State Chiropractic Association, and the Council on Diagnosis and Internal Disorders. Dr. Thornton is active in the Missouri State Chiropractor Association and is the past District 5 President for the Missouri Chiropractic Association. There are seven districts in Missouri, with District 5 being the 3rd largest. Dr. Thornton is currently teaching Postgraduate license renewal diagnostic seminars throughout U.S.

Dr. Thornton has always been interested in health. Not particularly attracted to pharmaceuticals and traditional medicine, he initially looked into the fields of Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. After a severe car accident early in his college career, he was introduced to Dr. Myron Harbottle and the healing art of Chiropractic. As he recovered, he fell in love with this hands-on form of health care and soon steered his educational path toward becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.

During Chiropractic College he developed an interest in the ancient Chinese healing art of Acupuncture, or, more accurately, Meridian Therapy, in which he would eventually become certified. He also earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City.

After graduating from Cleveland, Dr. Thornton opened his practice in Stockton, naming it Thornton Family Chiropractic. Early in his professional career he became interested in how nutrition affected health, and in turn, how many disease processes could be improved or reversed with proper nutrition, life-style modifications, and natural therapies.

Furthering his education, he then attended a postgraduate degree program offered by the American Board of Chiropractic Internists and earned the diplomate degree “Board Certified Chiropractic Internist.” This degree is conferred on a physician who completes a rigorous, 300+ hour education and credentialing program in standard medical diagnoses, internal disorders, natural treatment, and conservative disease management. Less than 300 Doctors of Chiropractic throughout the World are thus honored. (See our video What is a Chiropractic Internist? to learn more.) Dr. Thornton is also a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist (Diplomate of the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition–DCBCN).

Dr. Thornton was born in Clinton, Missouri, and raised mostly in Stockton, Missouri, where he currently practices. He is involved in music ministry at his church, and his hobbies include hunting, fishing, gung fu, basketball, and reading. [top]
