Professional Wellness Speaker

"There is an urgent problem facing our community where families are being compromised due to misinformation about health. Americans have never been as sick, diseased, or symptomatic as we are today. There are endless people who are suffering, who have been through the Chronic disease in animals is becoming commonplace.  Usual and customary is constantly changing.  When President James Garfield was shot, the bullets could not be found. Edison’s x-ray was available but was not usual and customary.  Garfield died because seven surgeons damaged his liver, when the radiograph would have shown there was no need for surgery.  When I graduated from vet school, glucosamine was not usual and customary in animals.  Students are now taught the physiology and pharmacology of glucosamine in their middle years of training.  Our practice uses the chiropractic adjustment as the cornerstone of diagnostic and prognostic indicators in animals.  It is not usual or customary, but it first causes no harm.  Let me show your group how."
~ Dr. Bill Ormston

Dr. Ormston's Story

Dr. Bill Ormston, DVM -- Dr. Ormston (Dr. O to most) is the eldest son of teachers from Marshalltown, Iowa.  He started out in private practice and owned one in Hays, Kansas and one in Climax Springs, MO before moving to Celina, TX.  In 1998 he attended Options for Animals and earned his certificate in Animal Chiropractic.  Following his move to Texas he found himself in need of continuing education for the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association and sponsored a conference in Dallas, TX at Parker Chiropractic College.  Soon after this endeavor he founded the Animal Chiropractic Program at Parker Chiropractic College with the sponsorship of the continuing education department.
 
In conjunction with his partner, Dr. Amy Hayek, he founded and currently teaches for Animal Chiropractic Education Source, the only online course with both AVCA approval and SCAV CE approval.
 
His speaking endeavors include the American Veterinary Medical Association, Equine Affair, the Hoosier Horse Fair, the Iowa Horse Fair, The Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards, the Southeastern Veterinary Conference and the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.  He has published in numerous trade journals regarding animal husbandry, including the Holistic Horse, Animal Wellness, Equine Wellness, Canine Wellness and Elite Equestrian.
 
Dr. Amy Hayek and Dr. Bill Ormston cohosted the 2010 cable television show Harmonizing Your Horses’ Health.  The 26 episodes have aired on various stations within the United States, Australia, South America and Japan.  Segments of the show have also been seen during the World Equestrian Games and various sporting events.   

As a result of the demand for more in-depth information from the TV show, they now teach courses to veterinarians and animal owners.  
 
This dynamic duo is out to educate the world about animal chiropractic, animal health, and food health through their courses on Food Animal Chiropractic, the only one approved by the AVCA.
