Chiropractor Ankeny IA Michael LaBounty DC

Chiropractor

Michael LaBounty D.C.

A Passion for Health
Dr. Mike LaBounty grew up with an older brother who had finished medical school and a sister who had finished Chiropractic school while he was still in high school. That was the beginning of what led him to health care!

However, it was when he heard a chiropractor speak about how chiropractic works to restore balance to the body without drugs or surgery that he found his calling. After listening to the speaker, he immediately knew that chiropractic was for him and began to prepare for chiropractic school that same day!


Diving into Chiropractic
Ankeny Chiropractor Dr. Mike attended and graduated from the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While there, he had the unique opportunity to participate in two internships—one with a Gonstead chiropractor and one with a doctor who focused on upper cervical. Though he was very interested in both, he decided that the Gonstead Method would be his focus. Ever since, he’s been helping patients in Ankeny feel better naturally with specific, gentle, tailored care through the Gonstead system.

Dr. Mike is a member of the Iowa Chiropractic Society as well as the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society (GCSS). He is on the board of Gonstead Methodology Institute and teaches doctors and students through this organization. He also is adjunct faculty at both Palmer College and Northwestern Health Sciences where he brings on students as interns during their final trimester at school. Dr. Mike is a mentor to dozens of chiropractors and teaches at seminars on a regular basis across the country.

He developed a way of analyzing and listing specific adjustments to the sacrum. He has fine tuned adjusting patients in a very specific way lying down instead of twisting their spines in order to help patients get better faster, while feeling little to no tightness or soreness with their adjustments.


Outside of the Practice
Dr. Mike enjoys serving the Lord first, then his beautiful, amazing wife Abigail, and their children: Ava, Noelle, Landen, and Rosaline. The family also likes to soak up the outdoors and spend time with each other and family.

His family’s main focus is allowing God to work in and through them in every aspect of their lives. Dr. Mike often prays with his patients and has seen miracles in healing through prayer in conjunction with chiropractic!

Chiropractic Ankeny IA Abigail LaBounty
Certified Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner

Abigail LaBounty

Abigail's own health journey, and her family's, is what lead her to pursue the path of becoming a Certified Nutrition Response Testing® Practitioner.  Her daughter Rosaline was one year old, and not growing very well, and had a bloated belly all the time. This led Abigail and her husband, Michael, on a pursuit of finding a solution.

As Abigail and Rosaline started on the journey of Nutrition Response Testing®, they were amazed at the results. Rosaline became a healthier and happier toddler, and started growing as well! Abigail's health started rising also, along with the rest of her family. After deciding she wanted to learn more about Nutrition Response Testing® to help her family, Abigail realized the power of the testing for her family, and wanted to begin to reach beyond her family. This began her on an extensive and exciting journey of learning and certification to reach out to the community. She decided to launch Nutrition Response Testing® at Bountiful Life Chiropractic Center! Abigail is so excited to be on the road towards full health with each patient that comes through the doors!

Chiropractic Ankeny IA Paige Shadden Nutrition Resopnse Testing
Certified Nutrition Response Testing® Practitioner

Paige Shadden

For the first 30 years of my life, I mostly ate things that came out of a box, can, or plastic wrapper (and never made the connection that real food = health). I had anxiety attacks starting as a pre-teen, as well as bouts of depression and low energy. I was never over-weight, but my blood sugar issues caused me to have constant brain fog and even memory impairment. As a child, I started to believe a lie that I wasn't "smart" because I couldn't concentrate in school.

But even after changing my diet as an adult, and growing our own organic vegetable garden, there were still some big missing pieces.

Before becoming a patient of Nutrition Response Testing® in March 2019, I sought out many doctors no only for myself, but also for my husband and 2 small children. I was a sleep deprived mom experiencing daily anxiety, but also had mysterious spasms in my kidneys for a long time. I started the recommended supplement program, and within a few weeks, the spasms went away (and have not come back ever since)! My adrenal glands and thyroid were weak, along with some immune challenges, and now I am sleeping the best I ever have!

As a mom, it was devastating to see my miracle boys suffering (my husband and I were told for the first 8 years of our marriage that we could never have children due to our medical issues). Our firstborn had chronic swollen lymph nodes and dozens of food allergies since he was a toddler (and was in non-stop pain for 2 years). His liver showed up as weak, and within a few months after taking the recommended supplements, he was not in pain anymore, and still isn't! As for our youngest child, he had stomach issues since he was born, as well as food sensitivities. He was also starting to go cross-eyed. Again, he was placed on his own individualized protocol of nutritional supplements, and now, none of these are issues anymore! What a giant relief for our family!

I thank God every single day for leading us to Nutrition Response Testing®!
