Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind-body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.
Wellness means much more than just being disease free.

Dr. Russel SherDr. Russel Sher is a 1986 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic and has practiced integrated health care and chiropractic both in South Africa and the United States for over twenty two years. His passionate commitment to the philosophy of holistic healing and his extensive background in health sciences allow him to employ a wide range of practical and effective therapies in addressing health issues as well as prescription of preventive strategies.
Why are we different?Asheville Center for Health Excellence strives to provide truly comprehensive “excellent health care” to Asheville and the surrounding areas. The factor that differentiates us is our truly holistic approach: focusing not just on symptoms but also their underlying causes.
We utilize state-of-the–art technology and functional laboratory analysis to identify underlying functional imbalances; advanced health assessment technology to determine lifestyle and dietary factors that warrant attention; and safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic techniques to normalize musculoskeletal and nervous system function.
Typical ConditionsDespite great medical advances, our current healthcare delivery model has a long way to go. Many interventions temporize the problem but have little to offer in addressing underlying root causes. Alternative medicine opens up new solutions. Some conditions typically seen at our Practice include:
Headache | Neck Pain | Whiplash | Lower Back Pain | Scoliosis
Sports Injuries | Hormone Imbalances | Gastrointestinal Disorders

|Unresolved stomach pain|
|"We struggled for years to determine what was causing our daughter's stomach pain. She would regularly be doubled-over and we made numerous trips to the emergency room. We brought her to physicians and specialists who went as far as to perform an endoscopy, only to find nothing wrong. They medicated her but without success. We finally realized all these doctors were chasing the symptoms and we wanted to find the root cause. We brought Mackenzie to Dr. Sher and he immediately suggested a different approach, testing the gastrointestinal system from a functional viewpoint to see how well it was performing and to identify any bacteria that could be problematic. The gastrointestinal lab test FINALLY found the cause of her pain and Dr. Sher treated it naturally with herbs and supplements. At the same time he adjusted Mackenzie with chiropractic to insure her body was in sync and nerves were free to operate correctly. This holistic approach has made our daughter pain-free for months now and she and we are thrilled!"
