Dr. Albert Police
Dr. Albert Police was raised in Kona since 1980. After graduating from Hawaiʻi Preparatory Academy, he attended the University of Oregon for the basic sciences and then attended Life University for his chiropractic training. While attending Life, he played “A side” for the nationally recognized Life rugby team and graduated cum laude.
“Dr. Al” was raised in a “chiropractic family” by his mother, Luna, and his step-father Dr. Rhody Edwards, D.C.
While growing up with a chiropractor in the house, Dr. Al learned that the human body was not a poorly made machine that breaks down a lot and then needs medicine to get better but rather that our bodies are miraculously designed mechanisms that run nearly flawlessly when you treat them the way they were designed to be treated.
He learned it was usually a small adjustment that was required to be healthy. It was in how your body was aligned, what you were fueling your body with, or what toxins you needed to stop adding to your body.
