Dr. Cody Capeloto
Dr. Cody Capeloto was born and raised in Gainesville, FL and currently resides in Austin, TX. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida, followed by his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from one of the world’s top accredited chiropractic schools – Palmer College of Chiropractic.
He has received advanced training in spinal correction, toxicity, fitness, and nutrition from some of the largest health clinics in the world. He has access to the latest scientifically-based research and protocols in health and is one of only a few hundred doctors certified in the five essentials of health. He has traveled to volunteer on healthcare-relief mission trips to the Dominican Republic and has increased his ability to reach other cultures by learning Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
From Dr. Cody: Growing up, I watched my dad take medication after medication for his diabetes. Despite taking hundreds of pills per year, these medications did not make him healthier, but instead led to more side effects, more medications, and chronic sickness. He lost his relationships, his marriage, and his hope for living.
The sad part about this story is that this is not only my dad’s; this happens to millions of Americans every year, and chances are, you know someone with a similar story. It is my passion to reignite that spark in those who have lost it, so that they may reach their God-given potential.

For Dr. Martinez, the core essentials are a way of life that can lead to optimum health, and he strives to empower his patients with this information.
