Chiropractic Helps You Handle Stress.

January 17, 2018 - Leave a Response

How well does your body handle stress in order to stay healthy? This can depend on the balance of the fright or flight, rest and digest systems “aka” the autonomic nervous system. Great news, a Chiropractic Study involving 631 subjects, demonstrated consistent balance of the autonomic nervous system to help the body better handle stress. The rest and digest part of the nervous system helps the body with: digestion, fuel storage, insulin activity, resistance to infection, rest and recuperation, circulation to the skin and extremities, and releasing the “feel good” endorphin hormones. The fright or flight system helps the body with: blood pressure, heart rate, fuel availability of sugar and fats, adrenaline, oxygen circulation to vital organs, blood clotting, pupil size and peripheral vision to improve vision. This is why I recommend consistent Chiropractic Care as part of a wellness program to help balance the systems of the body.

Heal, is a documentary worth seeing!

January 15, 2018 - Leave a Response

If you enjoy documentaries then go see Heal. It contains information on the mind body connection and also follows two patients along their journey. One of my patients loved it and said it helped her understand more clearly how emotions can effect health. She felt empowered and hopefully you will too. I enjoyed this documentary and have included details about some of these experts that you may find interesting.

Dr. Darren Weissman has written a few best sellers and I had a chance to interview him. (You can find the interview on YouTube at WYSDrDarren) He created the LifeLine technique and travels all over the world teaching. LifeLine is a way to help guide one to the emotions that cause symptoms, stress and ill health. Getting to the root will balance and harmonize the body for healing to occur.

Dr. Joe Dispenza became well known in the movie What the Bleep. In Heal he shares that he was hit by a truck during a triathlon resulting in fractured vertebra of his spine. Told that he may never walk again, he did the impossible and decided not to have surgery. Instead, he did intense visualization many hours a day, envisioning total healing of his spine. Within 6 weeks he was walking and in 10 weeks running. He has written many books and holds workshops all over the world. Attendees have been studied by scientists to measure the powerful effects this work has on the brain and the heart.

Kelly Turner, Ph.D. is the author of Radical Remission. She got her Ph.D. studying 1,000 case studies found in medical journals of cancer patients that had spontaneous healings. She then wrote a book about cancer patients that she personally interviewed and found there were 9 common threads to the Radical Remission of Cancer. 7 of those had to deal with the mind. What I like about her approach is her flexibility. I find this refreshing as it’s easy to become rigid and think a certain philosophy, diet, exercise, technique, etc… is the only way.

Anita Moorjani was dying of cancer and had a Near Death Experience (NDE). The effects of this were that she healed very quickly after being on her deathbed, much to the surprise of her medical doctors. Her experience also made her aware that we can either make decisions out of fear or love. That even though she “ate healthy” and did all of what she thought was “right”, it all was fear based. She wrote about her NDE and travels all over the world to share her message.

These are just a few of the experts in the movie and I encourage you to see Heal.

Chiropractic helped this woman’s Secondary Hypothyroidism and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

January 8, 2018 - Leave a Response

What do you think about this case study? A 34 Year Old Woman presented to a chiropractic office complaining of hip and back pain along with medically diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome and secondary hypothyroidism. After two months of care, the patient reported improvement in thyroid function determined by a thyroid function test and she was able to stop her medication. Additionally, the patient reported improvement in her irritable bowel syndrome, low back, hip and upper back pain.
If you’re wondering how her secondary hypothyroidism and irritable bowel could have been helped by chiropractic then look online at the images of the central Nervous System and the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Systems. Notice how the nerves flow from the brain all the way down the spine and then out to the organs and other systems of the body. Either the communication from the brain and spine to the systems of the body are balanced or not. Chiropractic can help balance this communication, resulting in positive outcomes even beyond pain management.

Two Year Old With Seizures, Gets Relief With Chiropractic.

January 3, 2018 - One Response

Beautiful outcome for this 2 Year Old. She was having seizures every day from a rare disorder, where the brain surface appears smooth. Just two months of chiropractic care and there was a reduction of the seizures along with improved motor control and coordination. This is why I feel blessed to be a Chiropractor: respect the body by releasing interference and then let nature take its course.

Feel Empowered going into 2018 with these three step: 1.Forgive 2.Take an Inventory 3.Give  Every year I do some type of ceremony releasing the past and embracing the New Year.

Did you know that nearly 1 in 3 adults in the U.S. are diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)? This study shows that probiotics and omega-3 fatty acids supplements reduced Fatty Liver Index scores and also reduced Inflammation. That’s great news!

Chiropractic helps an MS patient.

December 25, 2017 - Leave a Response

What a lovely outcome for this 39 Year Old Multiple Sclerosis patient. She presented with a 20 year history of MS and her Chiropractic Care Plan was for an 18-36 month time period. Post-MRI results revealed no active plaques in the brain. She experienced diminished MS symptomatology and functional improvement including the ability to ambulate.

Cluster Headaches, Insomnia, Anxiety and Depression helped with Chiropractic.

December 20, 2017 - Leave a Response

Imagine how happy this man must be. A 21-year-old male patient presented into a chiropractic office complaining of anxiety, depression, insomnia, and cluster headaches. Upon completion of care this patient decreased and eventually stopped all medication usage and has not experienced a relapse in 4½ years. Even though this case does not include how many visits this man came in for care, I imagine it took a good amount to get these results.

Ringing of the ears, pelvic pain and ejaculatory pain all “totally better” in this Chiropractic Case Study.

December 18, 2017 - Leave a Response

Pardon the nature of this case study post. This 25-year-old male suffered for 1.5 years from pelvic floor muscular pain, ejaculatory pain and ringing of the ears until he went to a Chiropractor. This case took 41 visits and upon re-evaluation the patient reported “much improvement” in the pelvic floor pain with both the ejaculatory pain and the ringing in the ears described as “totally better”. Another reason in my opinion to work with a Chiropractor along with your medical doctor as a way to help the body as much as possible.
