Dr. Shawn Schmidt, DC

dr shawn schmidt dc, omaha chiropractic doctorDr. Shawn Schmidt founded Natural Health Center PC in 1990 establishing himself as a national leader in the field of integrative medicine and a cornerstone of the Omaha and Midwest healing community.

The Clinic remains more committed than ever to providing a level of care that nurtures and supports the true nature of holistic health. Dr. Schmidt recognized each patient as an individual and drew from the full spectrum of conventional and alternative therapies that only an experienced chiropractor with his background could. That approach continues at Natural Health Center to this day.

In a true testimony to the nature of wholeness, Dr. Schmidt rallied his considerable academic talents and all of his life experience to bear when working with his patients. The result is the clear goal of health and healing that can only be forged by nature.

Shawn Schmidt was unique as a physician, displaying the special background that exemplifies the complete package of a man who is dedicated to his patients and their healing.


Shawn Schmidt continued his academic excellence after completing undergraduate degree work at the University of Nebraska. At Logan College of Chiropractic, he garnered national acclaim while fulfilling the responsibilities of a student leader.

His education did not stop at graduation. Dr. Schmidt displays an unflagging thirst for knowledge, leading him to over 2800 classroom hours of study since receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1986.

His advanced studies in the fields of neurology, trauma, pain control, functional medicine, nutrition, herbology, reflexology, energetic medicine and many other modalities assure Dr. Schmidt’s patients of benefiting from the right treatment for their ailment.

As an example of his dedication, when American interest in Eastern medicine blossomed in the 1990s, Dr. Schmidt not only took accredited courses in acupuncture here in the U.S. but traveled and studied extensively throughout China to learn firsthand about the complex system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Today, his patients benefit from that knowledge as well as the vast elements of education Dr. Schmidt continues to assimilate.

Public Service

Dr. Schmidt conducts monthly seminars and workshops that are open to the public free of charge. They cover a wide range of health and wellness topics. As a dynamic and motivational speaker in high demand, Dr. Schmidt has lectured at worldwide conferences and travels widely. He has appeared on television and radio, often emphasizing the roles that nutrition and biochemistry play in healing.

His clinic has been selected by Creighton University Medical School as a clinic rotation site for senior medical students to familiarize them with the intricacies of alternative medicine.


Athletics may be the touchstone that defines Shawn Schmidt. Activities are one thing, but what really matters is that his interest in athletics bears witness to the underlying fountain of energy that Dr. Schmidt brings to his practice.

Since his youth and through adulthood, Shawn Schmidt has excelled at a high level: as a high school and college athlete in football, basketball and track and now as a professional racecar driver as an adult. His understanding of how the human body performs athletically has given him a unique perspective on the physiology and function of the body.

As Chief Medical Advisor for the prestigious Indy Car Racing Series (and a driver), he now applies his valuable insight to how movement and the forces of nature impact the body. A patient need not be an athlete to appreciate how a simple incorrect movement can have an unintended result.


In 1990, Dr. Schmidt founded the Natural Health Center in Omaha. It was the most advanced clinic of the time and the first clinic in Nebraska to integrate conventional medicine with alternative therapies. Dr. Schmidt reorganized and expanded the clinic again in 2001 to include additional doctors and staff. He opened a second clinic in Springfield, Nebr. in 2000. Both clinics continue to initiate new modalities and programs assuring the best of all possible holistic therapies, maintaining their leadership in the field of medicine.

He has served as Vice President of the Greater Omaha Chiropractic Association and is one of the principle organizers for annual charity events in the Omaha community.

Throughout his academic career, Dr. Schmidt regularly served as a student leader and program coordinator, receiving national recognition for his efforts.

In his active athletic pursuits, as owner and driver, he has led his Red Shark Race Team to top five rankings in the American Indy Car Series.


Dr. Schmidt is a published columnist and writer for the national publication, Nebraska Sports America, touching on excellence in athletics, motivation and life goals.

He is also the patent holder on medical devices that he has developed through his experience in athletics. One such device is a post-trauma/post-surgical orthopedic brace for head and neck injuries. Other devices he has developed are designed to protect the body from trauma injuries in football and racing.


Like millions of Americans, Dr. Schmidt was deeply moved by the events of September 11, 2001.

He traveled to Ground Zero at his own expense to provide medical and chiropractic care for the police, firemen and volunteers at the scene. He describes the experience as ‘life changing’.

As a devoted father, he cherishes the values and needs that are the hallmarks of health – spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Man is a holistic being. Dr. Shawn Schmidt is a holistic practitioner bringing every experience and shred of knowledge in his command to his patients.

Dr. Jess Bethel, DC

dr jess bethel chiropractor in omahaDr. Jess Bethel, a Nebraska native, attended undergraduate school at the University of Nebraska at Omaha where he received his Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science/Kinesiology. He advanced his graduate education at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Overland Park, KS where he graduated Cum Laude in 2016 with a Doctorate of Chiropractic.

Dr. Bethel has earned his Fellowship with the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture (FIAMA) and is currently working towards becoming a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist. He is also a member of the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association.


Dr. Jess enjoys providing health education classes to patients to emphasize the importance of the human structure, exercise science, and nutrition. He stays up to date with the current chiropractic and Eastern medicine techniques to provide his patients with the best quality treatment possible. He stays active playing sports, exercising and values spending time with his family.

Health Care of the Future... From Dr. Bethel...
"It is my genuine belief that the advancements made in holistic medicine thus far, will serve as a solid foundation in which to approach medical cases in the future. The innate ability of the human body to heal itself is a remarkable mechanism, and when combined with multidisciplinary types of healthcare, I believe the body has the capacity to overcome what was once considered ‘impossible' and ‘untreatable.' "

"It's in the attention to detail, and stems from a more creative way of thinking when diagnosing patients that have already exhausted all options in their journey to finding a solution. I will not sacrifice these values to create a mediocre style of patient care. My primary goal is to help you achieve yours."
