Drs. Clint and Alissa Grover have always enjoyed traveling. Clint spent 24 months in England and Wales on a volunteer mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He also spent two weeks in Manaus, Brazil on a chiropractic service trip through Palmer College. Alissa has had the opportunity to visit England, Mexico, and Chile. Together, we spent two weeks in India on another chiropractic service trip. One of the main things we noticed in our travels is that the majority of the world is severely underserved in healthcare, particularly in regards to complementary and alternative medicine such as chiropractic. Even in the United States, where chiropractic was founded and has a large presence, less than 10% of the population sees a chiropractor on a regular basis. Due to the nature of modern Western Medicine and the restrictions imposed by insurance companies, chiropractic is not often seen as a necessity or priority for people’s health. However, we have seen firsthand the life-changing results that patients have experienced after an adjustment.
When we heard about the Hands for Life program, we were excited that a non-profit organization exists to provide the platform for reaching out to those who would not normally have access to chiropractic care, both in the community and worldwide. In addition, the organization supports the initiative for quality water, food, and education for those in need. We agree with the Hands for Life mission and have launched a chapter here in Bountiful, UT so that we can serve people (and animals!) here at home and across the world.
To create a natural avenue for the underserved, financial hard-shipped population throughout the world to regain their health through:
- Chiropractic care creating an efficiently running nervous system,
- Accessible clean water and healthy food,
- The opportunity to have a superior education so that each person can reach their god given potential and create a healthier world tomorrow.
Hands For Life is a non profit 501(c)3 that prides itself on looking for the “greater good” within each individual on God’s planet. We understand there may be a divide that separates people based on culture, ethnicity, race, etc., and Hands For Life sees these difference’s as reasons to unite as one! Just like a rainbow has different colors, those colors makes up its inherent beauty. HFL sees the same inherent beauty within all people on our planet. Our differences and individual uniqueness’ make our world more exciting, more educational and more real. Hands For Life is dedicated to creating a healthier world while honoring the differences amongst us. We travel the globe to touch lives and educate people about health. Through chiropractic and a natural lifestyle, along with water, food and education, Hands For Life sees its role as a facilitator to unleash the God given potential residing within each person. Sustainability, empowerment, better health and self sufficiency are what we leave behind after we touch so many. Our goal is simple: to make sure every man, woman and child have a high functioning nerve system, enough food and water for great nutrition, and an education so they can read, write, and have the basic skills so they can thrive and thus make a better contribution to the world.
We’re a family of chiropractors serving to make the world a healthier, more connected place. Our team understands the disparity in healthcare across the globe. There are some communities with access to excellent chiropractic care. There are other groups of people who have no way of receiving the benefit of chiropractic care. Our team came together to try and shrink the gap between the “haves” and the “have not’s”.
