Ha Ha Ha Chooooooo

This incredible weather that we are having feels wonderful yet the trees, flowers, mold, weeds and grasses are causing symptoms for those who have allergies.  I feel bad about that and don’t want people to suffer when they could be enjoying themselves.  To help those with outdoor allergy symptoms along with symptoms associated with food and chemical sensitivities there is an effective system that I use in my office called The BAX-3000.  This technology is Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy and provides a novel and unique approach to wellness that is allowing patients to experience symptomatic relief.

 Here are but a few examples of how this technology has helped.  One of my patient’s that I work with used to be on allergy medications all the time and noticed that with the BAX-3000 she hardly needed to use her allergy medications any more.  She also told me in amazement that she could be in her office around fresh cut flowers where before if she were anywhere near them they would cause an immediate asthmatic attack.  Last week a patient reported that his sinuses were noticeably clearer than they had been in a very long time.  

Another one of my patients wrote this testimonial.  “Over the past few years my physical and emotional being had become increasingly stressed.  My body was reacting negatively to various foods and environmental stimuli.  Following a series of treatments, I no longer react negatively to yogurt, coffee, chocolate, almonds and beer.  All of which either produced indigestion, heartburn, loose bowel movements or a change in breathing.  In addition I no longer suffer from itching and watery eyes when I pet or hold feline friends!  I would highly recommend the BAX-3000 treatment to improve sensitivities, allergies and general balance/well-being.”  Timothy

The BAX-3000 technology uses a therapeutic laser to help the body release endorphins and enkephalins. These are natural sedatives and painkillers and this calms the nervous system.  At the same time that the laser is helping the body release endorphins and enkephalins, the laser is also exposing the body to homeopathic vibrations of environmental allergens, foods or chemicals. This breaks the negative association to whatever the body is having a reaction to and replaces it with a neutral association.  The net result is the positive conditioning or retraining of the nervous system.  

What I love about this technology is that people are letting me know they are not stressed out like they used to be.  They can live more freely by taking a walk outside or leaving their windows open and for those with food sensitivities they can eat more foods without fear at home and in social situations. I feel so blessed to help people in this way and don’t want people to suffer any more.

Chiropractic Improves Sensory Processing Disorders.
March 14, 2012

Recently Dr. David Jockers wrote an article about a study that reveals the positive benefits of chiropractic for enhancing the functionality of individuals with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) and Autism.  Did you know that an estimated 5 percent of elementary aged children meet the criteria for SPD?  That is what the article says and it also says that there are many factors that may be involved in the formation of these disorders. This can include: birth and/or early childhood trauma, environmental toxins, food allergens, the avoidance of breast feeding and heavy vaccination. 

The first of the many causes listed for these developmental disorders is birth trauma and or early childhood trauma.  I know first hand working with babies and toddlers that working as soon as possible to reduce the effects of injury can be immediate and life changing.  I often explain to mothers to bring in their newborn babies and this article confirms this by explaining that birth trauma can occur during forceps or vacuum extraction delivery, normal vaginal delivery and also cesarean birth.  Early childhood trauma can occur with tumbles, hitting the head, car accidents, falling off the changing table or other jarring events. Any of these occurrences can affect the upper neck where the brain stem ties into the top of the spinal cord. When a neurological insult affects any joint of the spine and body this is termed subluxation by chiropractors.

Dr. Jockers explains, “Subluxation is a term used to describe mechanical compression and irritation to spinal joints and nerves. Subluxation scrambles the neurological feedback loop by causing altered rhythms of neurological flow. Subluxation insults the neurology of the infant and affects normal development and maturation. This can often create an environment conducive to the formation of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, ADHD and SPD.”

The article then goes on to discuss in more detail the impressive results of the two recent studies that were published in the 2011 edition of the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health.  Dr. Jockers also explains that there are 10 other case studies with successful results involving children with similar neurodevelopmental issues.  What I like is that there was a multidimensional approach to the care of the children.  This included the children receiving chiropractic adjustments to directly balance the neurology along with following an anti-inflammatory nutritional program of a gluten-free / casein-free diet and taking nutritional supplements such as probiotics and digestive enzymes.

I love reading and hearing about the wonderful healing that goes on with children, especially through chiropractic and natural remedies. Perhaps these results will lead more parents, pediatricians and schools to incorporate chiropractic and nutrition into the total care of their kids.
