The Wellness Way –
About The Wellness Way in Bismarck, North Dakota
We understand that common is not normal, and unlike the restrictive healthcare mentality, we dig deeper to find answers to life-restricting health challenges.
We focus on overcoming the three main causes of interference in the body — trauma, toxins, and thoughts — to go beyond symptom-based care and address your unique physiology in a way that allows your mind and body to find an individualized path back to better health.
We don’t guess, we test; rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we utilize the most in-depth testing and cutting-edge diagnostic tools to uncover the hidden sources of health problems.
We provide the essential guidance to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles through a combination of testing, individual plans, and one-on-one guidance to restore your body to total wellness.
Meet Our Team
Dr. Hunter was born and raised in Bismarck, North Dakota. He always has a passion for being healthy and staying active. He excelled in high school athletics thanks to his regular chiropractic care. He attended the University of Mary in Bismarck in the fall of 2014 where he ran track and received his bachelor’s degree in exercise science, and he received a minor in coaching. After he graduated, he was undecided on whether he wanted to pursue a career as a physical therapist or as a chiropractor. After much time in prayer and time spent shadowing different clinics, Hunter realized he was called to be a chiropractor. He then spent 10 months working for a Wellness Way affiliate office gaining valuable experience working for a chiropractic office.
During this time, Hunter had learned that his then fiancé Abby was struggling with serious health concerns. He found out that Abby had been diagnosed with PCOS when she was 13 years old, and she suffered from debilitating pain, abnormal cycles, and abdominal discomfort. Abby had seen specialist after specialist, and none were able to give her answers to her health concerns. They were beginning to lose hope and ultimately Abby was told that she should expect to have difficulty becoming pregnant, and she should be open to adoption being her only option to become a mom. Hunter was not willing to accept this answer and he pursued a different perspective. He found one in Dr. Patrick and The Wellness Way! After getting his wife tested properly and supporting her body, her hormonal imbalances began to normalize. After Hunter and Abby got married summer of 2019, he started chiropractic school at Northwestern Health Sciences in Minneapolis. Dr. Hunter and his wife soon found out they were pregnant and welcomed their baby boy Maximilian in July of 2020.
Hunter’s view of health had been changed forever due to his wife’s experience and he carried this new perspective with him throughout his time in chiropractic school. In his time in school, he helped start The Wellness Way student club at Northwestern where he continued to build his clinical skills and knowledge so he one day could help someone solve their health challenges like The Wellness Way had for his wife Abby!
Hunter and his wife Abby welcomed their second son Leo into the world in October of 2022, and graduated in December of 2022. He and his family moved back to their hometown of Bismarck, to open his practice. Hunter has a passion for guiding people to better health and he will give his all for his patients. He will always push himself to continue to get better for his patients, and to educate them on how to take control of their health.
About Our Events
What is your definition of health? At The Wellness Way, we recognize that most people have been conditioned to believe how modern-day healthcare practices are the experts of restoration and preventative medicine. However, our perception of the way the body functions differs from what is traditionally taught. Therefore, we conduct regular informational events to communicate how we view various systems in the human body. Our take on subjects such as hormones, inflammation, autoimmunity, metabolic syndrome, cancer, thyroid health, etc., strays away from “traditional” aspects. We value our patients’ ability to engage with their healthcare journey, which is why we hope by attending these events they achieve accountability and can take charge of their own bodies for a healthier future.
