He is also fully certified in Maximized Living Spinal Correction and Maximized Living Nutrition Plans.

Dr. Taylor has a passion for helping people reach their God-given potential to live a Maximized Life, and his favorite thing to see are families and children whose entire futures have been changed because someone was bold enough to tell their parents the truth about health, so the kids don’t have to live a life of sickness and medications (like Dr. Taylor did as a child).

Dr. Taylor, Align Family Chiropractic, and Maximized Living Utah are on a mission to see the entire Salt Lake Valley change the way it views and manages health, from the inside-out, through the Five Essentials of Maximized Living.
