Dr. James Cima functional medicine chiropractor Palm Beach Gardens


The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in diet, care of the human frame, and the cause and prevention of disease.”

Thomas Edison

Meet Dr. James Cima

Born in New York City in 1948, he was one of the first wave of baby boomers. “Growing up in Queens New York City was a great challenge in many ways and prepared me well for life.”

Gaining My Life Back With Chiropractic

Dr. Cima’s journey to becoming a chiropractor started when he was young. At age 13 or 14, he suffered a back injury. It got worse until he was in constant pain that would go away sometimes, but always returned with a vengence.

After he had graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science, there were days when he couldn’t get off the floor. Someone suggested to Dr. Cima that he visit a chiropractor. His back improved quickly. Amazed at the results and combined with his desire to be in the health field, he decided to enroll at New York Chiropractic College, graduating with honors and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

As he was in his last year of school, he saw a quote from Thomas Edison about the doctor of the future:
“The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in diet, care of the human frame, and the cause and prevention of disease.”

Although the definition was near perfect, there was no how-to manual that explained how the doctor was going to treat his patients.

From that day forward, he was hooked, and wanted to become the doctor of the future. Dr. Cima devoted his life to health and wellness. Then the most interesting thing happened to him. He would ask a question and always received the answer. It was like God was waiting for him to ask the right question, and then he would receive the right answer. Maybe not the next day or the next year, or the next decade but when the time was right the answer came. Forty years later from all the answers that he received he created a health and wellness program that lives up to Mr. Edison’s vision of the doctor of the future.

Since then, he has authored many books and taught, educated and trained many doctors and has also completed extensive postgraduate education, in:

  • Nutrition Blood Chemistry Analysis
  • Exercise Physiology/Kinesiology
  • Neuroendocrinology
  • Craniopathy
  • Organ and Glandular Therapy
  • Neuromuscular Re-education
  • Extremity Technique

Dr. Cima's BookConstantly Learning and Growing

A prolific author, Dr. Cima still continues to write books, articles and is in the process of developing a web site designed to help the people of the world improve their health thru nutrition. See the full list of his publications here.

When he’s not busy researching, writing, lecturing or helping patients, he enjoys spending time with his family, including four children and six grandchildren. An avid golfer Dr. Cima is also Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certified. Where he feels that he can improve the average golfers handicap by 5-10 strokes simply by creating the perfect swing for their body type.
