Our Mission

“To teach and provide the fundamentals of true health; diet, lifestyle, and nutrition.”


Dr. Ethan Helder grew up in the Brookings area regularly seeing the doctors at Dobson Chiropractic Clinic for help with his knee and back pain as well as nutritional therapy. While attending Brookings High and SDSU, Dr. Helder achieved his black belt in Tae Kwon Do from Victory Martial Arts while studying for his bachelor’s in microbiology with a focus on infectious disease. He attended NorthWestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN to attain his Doctor of Chiropractic degree and is currently pursuing a Certified Clinician in Whole Food Nutrition certification from the International Foundation for Nutrition and Health. He loves chiropractic but his true passion is treating complex health issues using functional medicine and nutrition therapy. Dr. Helder married his high school sweetheart, Kayla, 5 years ago and they are currently expecting their second baby in June 2019.
