Dr. Joshua J. Redd DC, Chiropractic Physician
Josh Redd, DC, MS, DABFM, DAAIM, is a chiropractic physician and the founder and owner of RedRiver Health and Wellness, which currently consists of seven functional medicine clinics serving patients from around the world. His clinics focus on using non-pharmaceutical approaches to manage patients with challenging autoimmune, endocrine, and neurological disorders. Between all seven clinics, his practice sees hundreds of patients a day. This allows Dr. Redd to quickly identify patterns and trends among his patient population, as well as which evidence-based clinical strategies are the most successful in managing autoimmunity.
Dr. Redd studied Immunology, Virology, Bacteriology, and Autoimmunity of the Endocrine Glands at Johns Hopkins University where he is currently a MAPHb Candidate.
He is the author of the Amazon bestselling book The Truth About Low Thyroid and a health consultant for ABC4. He was formerly a co-host on ABC’s The Younger You, and his colon health and brain health episodes were nominated for an Emmy in 2014. Dr. Redd is a frequent contributor for St. George News, ABC, and other news and TV outlets..
Dr. Redd delivers post-graduate lectures to health care professionals around the country on functional medicine topics such as neuroendocrine immunology, gastrointestinal disorders, gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, autoimmune management, functional blood chemistry, and clinical strategies for hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s.
Dr. Redd’s experience in working with a large patient population led him to begin a Covid-19 study in his area in early 2020 to investigate immunity to the virus. The data from that study is on track to be compiled into a research study for publication. He worked closely with the State of Utah and the medical directors of LabCorp and ARUP. In April of 2020 he found the prevalence for Covid-19 in Utah was less than 1 percent and cautioned Utahns that numbers would be much worse in the coming months. This was at a time when many had thought that it had already widely circulated. He also found a small percentage of people with Covid-19 developed autoimmunity from the virus. Dr. Redd has been hired to consult many businesses and professional teams to help minimize the spread of Covid-19.
Dr. Redd sees a number of NFL, NBA, MLB, Women’s Soccer and other professional athletes and celebrities who are struggling with their health.
Previously, Dr. Redd went to chiropractic school with the goal of practicing functional medicine and helping chronically ill patients using a non-pharmaceutical approach. He graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Parker University and received a Masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States. He has a Diplomate in Functional Medicine from the American Board of Functional Medicine, and a certification and Diplomate in Integrative Medicine from the American Association of Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Redd trains closely with Dr. Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN, a Harvard Medical School Research Fellow, and immunologist Dr. Aristo Vojdani, PhD, MSc. He credits them for much of his success throughout the last 10 years as a functional medicine practitioner.
One of Dr. Redd’s first patients presented with advanced Hashimoto’s disease and Addison’s disease. She had been to many different specialists and nobody was able to help her improve her health. Her symptoms were so severe that she could barely function each day. When a school teacher asked her son’s class to draw a picture of their mother, he drew a picture of her in bed. She asked, “What is this?” when she pulled the picture from his backpack. He replied, “That’s you mommy. Since you are always in bed.”
After hearing her story and witnessing the dramatic improvements she experienced during the months he worked with her, Dr. Redd committed himself to helping patients with autoimmunity who have lost hope due to suffering from challenging chronic conditions.
That first patient has been a motivating factor to grow his education so that he can continue to help patients from around the country and throughout the world who are seeking lasting solutions to their chronic autoimmune and health problems.
