Meet Dr. Erik Kowalke

Dr. Kowalke grew up in Arbor Vitae, WI. From a very young age he had the mind and heart of an engineer, so it was only natural for him to attend Michigan Technological University to pursue a degree of Mechanical Engineering. When he experienced relief from chronic allergies through chiropractic care, he became intrigued with how the body works. It was then he realized that true health came from the inside out, not the other way around with over the counter medications and prescription drugs. The human body is the greatest machine ever built; no man has yet to make or duplicate a human cell! This is exactly what drove Dr. Erik to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. He says “The human body is amazing; now as a ‘spinal engineer’ it is my mission to help people realize their God given health potential through specific, scientific, chiropractic care."

Meet Dr. Marc DeMeester

Dr. Marc DeMeester was home grown right here in Grandville, Michigan, graduating from Tri-Unity Christian High School.  He married his true Colorado love, Katie (Bowman) DeMeester and they have 4 children.  In addition to chiropractic and his family, his other passions are mountain biking, skiing, rock climbing, and enjoying the outdoors.  At the age of 24, he was diagnosed with a severe bulging disc that was putting pressure on his spinal nerves and creating extreme pain in his arms and hands. Due to years of antibiotics for chronic bronchitis and the effects of living an active lifestyle, Dr. Marc became unable to do the activities he loved.  Chiropractic not only helped him recover from his neck and arm pain, but it improved his respiratory function.  With these improvements, he noticed overall greater health and almost no bronchitis!  It was then Dr. Marc decided he wanted to help others find healing through chiropractic care.  His passion is to help people find hope, get well, and live life with chiropractic.

Meet Dr. Katie DeMeester

Dr. Katie grew up in beautiful Niwot, CO. Before chiropractic school, she played basketball at Montana State University and then volleyball and basketball at Colorado Christian University. She graduated from CCU with a degree in biology and then magna cum laude from Life Chiropractic College West. She was introduced to chiropractic as a teenager when severe mid-back pain kept her from doing the sports she loved. Chiropractic not only helped her pain but helped her stay a healthy athlete. She has received additional chiropractic training in pediatric and pregnancy care and loves taking care of kids and pregnant mothers! Dr. Katie is thrilled to be at Higher Health serving such a wonderful community through the power and wonder of chiropractic care.
