Let's begin with how different chiropractic is from any other form of healthcare. 

 

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is concerned with human health and prevention of disease. Chiropractors don't treat any diseases, at least not medically speaking.

 

Then, how do patients get well?

 

That's simple! As Chiropractors, we communicate with the doctor who resides inside every one of us and you are the one who does all the heal-ing. So, give your body the real credit for healing!

 

We give your body the highest healing potential!

 

Chiropractors do so by removing nerve interference called “Subluxations”. This is done by adjusting the spine to correct these subluxations (nerve interference) and teaching about their cause. There is only one type of doctor whose only purpose is just that!

 

This teacher and practitioner is known as a Chiropractor…

 

Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to check you and your family’s spines for subluxations. Once subluxations are found, chiropractors correct them.

 

They are concerned with correcting the causerather than treating the effects.

 

This works by freeing up the nerve system so the brain can communicate with the body.The nerve system is so important that is has been surrounded by bone. No other system has this distinction! The brain is protected by the skull. The extension of the brain, or spinal cord, is protected by a moveable bony covering called. THE SPINE. The spine provides a freely movable covering that protects the nerve system. When the spine works properly the integrity of the nerve system is maintained. This allows it to be used by the innate intelligence to keep us healthy, function to our highest potential, and be full of life!

 

So this is why on your first visit we MUST check your Nerve system

 

...by providing a Holistic Health Care Consultation, State of the Art Holistic Nerve and Spinal Exam, Full Computerized Thermal Spinal Scan, & Advanced Biostructual Digital Corrective X-rays to see if your spine is interfering with your nerve system and getting in the way of your healing potential and live the healthiest life that you deserve!

SIX STEPS TO WELLNESS

STRUCTURE

Step 1: Re-establish Structural Integrity, The Foundation of Health.

Nerve and Structural interference happens when nerves or tissue are interfered with causing the life energy, which flows through them, to be blocked.  It can be produced through trauma such as an accident or fall, fractures, surgery, emotional stress, etc.

If our tissues, muscles or fascial movements are restricted it can cause interference with the electrical impulses moving through them.  Pain and disease are not the initial cause, but are actually key indicators of nerve interference.

Re-establishing structural integrity is the foundation of health.  80% of all conditions improve when the structure of the body is properly re-established to allow a free flow of vital energy.   


ELECTRICAL POLLUTION

Step 2: Rebalance Electromagnetics

We live in an ocean of electromagnetism.  Our bodies have their own electromagnetic field much like a magnet has north and south polarities.  Every cell has north and south polarity that affects all functions of the cell.  Our fields should be synchronized with the natural rhythms of the earth, moon and sun.


When electromagnetic pollution from power lines, appliances, computers and TVs, microwave communications devices, and even the electric clock by the bed begins to accumulate, our entire system becomes stressed to the point of exhaustion.  Our vision declines, our cells no longer know how to build and repair the body properly, and illness can set in.


NUTRITION

Step 3: Rebalance Nutrition

    A.    Reset Adrenals & the General Adaptive Syndrome (GAS)
    B.    Replenish Nutrition for Organs, Glands or Systems Weakness.
    C.    Reduce Infective Organisms in the Body.
    D.    Replace Enzymes and/or HCL to Aid Digestion, Assimilation and Elimination.
    E.    Restore Proper Bowl Flora to Optimize Colon Function

Survey's show that 20% of the US population never eats vegetables, and 40% rarely consumes fruit or fruit juices.  80% of the population never consumes whole grains or high-fiber foods.  All forms of refined sugar lower the immune system's function and interferes with the ability of the white blood cells to destroy unfriendly bacteria.

The standard American diet, which contains food grown on depleted soils, has left Americans deficient in many nutrients important to health.  In 1936, U.S. Senate Document 264 noted that 95% of Americans are deficient in one or more major minerals and many trace minerals, which have been proven to be necessary for bone mineralization.


ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES

Step 4: Reprogram the body for any Allergy or Sensitivity

Conventional estimates suggest that 35 million people in the US suffer from allergies of different kinds.  As we remove the interferences to your health, reset your adrenal gland, and correct your nutrition and digestion we must correct allergies and sensitivities or they will keep triggering your immune system back into interference.  This is a very significant stage of healing and cannot be ignored.

There are basically three causes of allergies:

    1.     A substance in the environment such as dust, mold, pollen, etc.
    2.     Foods or food additives such as corn, milk, soy, etc.
    3.     Metabolic Biproducts (bodily fluids and tissues).

Allergic reactions can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders and lead to confused immune system responses and to killing off friendly protective bacteria in our GI tracts, which encourages infective organisms.  Infective organisms are linked to leaky gut syndrome, or excessive permeability of the GI tract, partly caused by damaged, leaky walls in the digestive tract that allow food particles into the blood stream.  Food particles in the digestive tract are normal, but food particles in the blood stream are reacted to as foreign invaders.


EMOTIONS AND STRESS

Step 5: Re-evaluate Emotional Patterns & Remove Limiting Belief Systems

Emotion has been shown by the latest research to be a complex reaction between the body and mind.  This results in chemical reactions in the brain and cells, which produces energy made of electrical and magnetic nerve signals.  These energies or emotions literally have a frequency, which radiates outward from our energy field. 

The mind is a field of energy made up of the brain, the body, and the entire energy field.  These chemical and energy patterns are stored in the mind-body field and this is called emotional memory.  Patterns of thought and behavior are caused by one's perception.

Perceptions and beliefs are represented by the stored configurations of memory held in an electromagnetic field we call our mind.  Past experiences and perceptions of them control reflex emotional responses.  These emotional reflexes can then be re-played and create interferences to normal functions in life and limit one's ability to perceive situations properly.


TOXICITY

Step 6: Remove Heavy Metals and Other Toxins from the Body

Toxic metals are widely used in industry, food processing, and agriculture, and find their way into our air, food, and water. Exposures to these toxins are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness. Some toxins are naturally occurring chemicals that our body has had a hard time breaking down. When accumulated in our cells these toxins can cause mutation or death. These can be harmless in very small quantities by deadly in large amounts. 

Researchers and experts in environmental medicine tell us that it is not a question of if our bodies are burdened with toxic overload but “how bad is it.” Common problems of toxicity include: headaches, fatigue, general joint and muscle pain, skin disorders like rashes and eczema, and asthma and allergies. Many toxins are neurotoxins like monosodium glutamate and mercury and affect our brain functions such as memory, quick thinking and moods.

Though there is no such thing as a "safe" sport, highly competitive sports, such as football, weightlifting, gymnastics, and wrestling, pose particularly higher risks of injuries, especially among children.

According to experts, as much as 20 percent of all sports-related injuries involve the lower back or neck. Running and weightlifting, and other sports that involve repetitive impact, expose children to a high risk for lumbar (lower back) injuries. Contact sports, such as soccer and football, expose the cervical spine, or neck, to injury. More than one-third of all high school football players sustain some type of injury. Soccer participants are easy candidates for mild to severe head traumas, neck injuries, cervical spine damage, headache, neck pain, dizziness, irritability, and insomnia. Heading the ball, the act of using the head to re-direct the soccer ball, has been linked with cervical injuries in children and adults. The trampoline and gymnastics also present significant risks for spinal cord injuries from unexpected and brute falls or contact with hard surfaces.

Here's a look at some of the other common injuries by sport:

  • Bicycling - Poor posture can greatly increase your risks of a back injury during cycling. When riding a bike, your lower back is constantly flexing sideways and up and down. Upper back injuries can involve the flexing of the neck. And the bumps and jars incurred on the road during cycling can wreak havoc and possible compression injuries to your spine.
  • Golf - Common injuries incurred during the sport of golf usually involve muscle sprains and strains to the lower back.
  • Running/jogging - Running and jogging puts a great deal of stress on your back, since the constant pounding against a hard surface can jar, and possibly compress, structures such as vertebrae, joints, and discs.
  • Skiing - Skiing involves a great deal of twisting and turning motions, as well as jarring landings, all of which can cause muscle sprains and strains and in some cases, minor spinal fractures.
  • Swimming - Swimmers are known to incur lower back injuries. Motions such as the crawl or breaststroke can cause the lumbar region to be hyperextended. If the swimmer is not properly conditioned or warmed up, the hyperextension sometimes doesn't subside.
  • Tennis - "Tennis elbow" is a layman's term for pain on the lateral, or outside part of the elbow, on or near the bony protrusion. Tennis elbow is caused when the tendon from the elbow bone tears or is ruptured. It is no surprise that professional tennis players can become inflicted with this with all of the stress and strain they place on the joint during play. In addition, tennis players are in constant motion, and the repeated twisting and trunk rotations can cause injuries. Shoulder injuries and turned ankles and knees also are common. The act of serving the ball also has been shown to hyperextend the lower back, and possibly compress discs.
  • Weight lifting/body building - Body builders are at a significant risk for a host of serious back, shoulder, neck, and knee injuries. Resistance training has been known to cause muscle sprains and strains, ligament and tendon injuries, and in some cases, stress fractures (also called spondylolysis). Older people seem to be at higher risk since their bones and discs are more brittle.
