Dr. Gary Saks
Dr. Saks graduated from Wayne State University as a teacher in 1972. That turned out to be a very good base because he loves to teach about being healthy. He then graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1976. There, he mastered several adjusting techniques and developed a passion for Applied Kinesiology (AK) and clinical nutrition. In fact, he learned from the creator of the technique, Dr. George Goodheart and was the Founder and President of the Palmer Applied Kinesiology Club. He has logged in over 1000 hours of post graduate education in the realm of clinical nutrition and is now certified in Nutrition Response Testing.
“I feel that our current health model overemphasizes relieving symptoms rather than correcting the root cause. There is a great deal of dependence on pharmaceutical drugs and surgery rather than aiding the body naturally in a way that allows it to do the healing.” Dr. Saks has particular training in spinal conditions and has been able to help many people avoid surgery and ongoing pain and disability.
“As a Doctor in Gaylord since 1976, I have had the opportunity to work with a large variety of people and conditions. I continue to be impressed with how the body can heal itself given the right help from the outside and the right efforts from the patient.”

“I am proud to say I am from northern Michigan. We are blessed to be tucked in between the beautiful shorelines of the Great Lakes while also being enclosed by natural wilderness. Our small knit communities are a great way to grow up because you feel safe here surrounded by friends and neighbors. I can’t see myself living anywhere else.”
