Numb to Your Target

According to a CDC study, suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise. Fashion creator Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's recent deaths are just two examples - with the usual media references to depression... but no specifics on how, when or where they lost sight of their PURPOSE.

Humans are 'cybernetic' creatures who need meaningful targets in Life. Like any homing device, if your guiding system is clouded by reality altering chemicals and you've lost focus on your "target," you'll miss it all together.  Worse yet, you could up in a really bad place through no fault of your own.

We all experience let downs, disappointments and sadness in Life. Knowing these are inevitable, our Creator equipped us with an innate guidance system (our nerve system) to keep us on purpose and on track amid the stresses in Life. Numbing up that guidance system with chemicals renders it rudderless. You can't deal with Life if you can't feel it.

"Once you start, you'll have to keep going." It's the oldest cliché you'll hear about Chiropractic from those who've never given it a chance. Yet many of those same naysayers would gladly fill a prescription for OxyContin® or Vicadin® to relieve their chronic pain. Well, consider this.

In 2016 over 115 Americans died daily from opioid overdoses, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the 63,632 Americans who died of drug overdose that year. In 2018, more than 2 million Americans suffered from addiction to prescription or illicit opioids - an addiction that can take hold in as little as 5 days use, yet cause a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial devastation for the victims and loved ones involved. On the flip side...

A recent study by Yale School of Medicine now shows "Patients who have visited a chiropractor for musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions are currently 49% less likely to be issued and to receive an opioid prescription when compared to their counterparts who sought help from other healthcare providers.” Chiropractic care is well established as a safe and cost effective means to rid pain, restore function and get patients back on the road to health faster than Big Pharma can. Start one that leads to potential death or one that leads to more Life - it's your move.

According to Dr. Oz, the known side effects of mixing two prescription drugs are minimal at best. When you mix 3, the research is almost none existent... and more than that? Forget it! The scientists, doctors and pharmaceutical industries have no clue how those chemicals react together, much less in each individual person.

Balancing the body's chemistry in a healthy way is not an easy task. How much stomach acid is required to digest a meal... what hormones are needed to facilitate cellular reactions... when should the flood of neurotransmitter be sped up or shut down.  When it comes to your body's chemical state, there's only one thing smart enough to keep it all in perfect balance - and it isn't Big Pharma.

Health is a balancing act best managed by the innate wisdom inside your body. Trying to override that wisdom from the outside with a mixed cocktail of prescriptions is risky and dangerous at best. Side effects are like a box of chocolates... you never know what you're gonna get

There was a time where tackle boxes were used to hold fishing gear. Bobbers, hooks and perhaps your favorite lures all found a home in one of many varying sized, slotted compartments. Now those boxes are used to hold the multitude of drugs so many seniors are prescribed.

According to a recent analysis by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, people aged 65-79 receive more than 27 prescriptions for new drugs per year. It doesn't start off that high. One prescription most likely created a side effect which begat the need for another, which begat the need for another, which begat yet another, so on and so for - like a bad, chemical ancestral lineage.  Until one day, only a tackle box can 'tackle' the volume of meds needed every day.

Still, there ARE senior citizens who need little to no prescriptions - they're vibrant, alert, active and full of Life. It makes you wonder what they did during their lifetime to reap such healthy rewards late in life - most likely they spent more time at their favorite fishing hole, than at their favorite doctor's office.

Every day, people around the world thank their Chiropractors for giving them their health and their Lives back.  It’s common to hear patients say 'doc, you really did a great job...' and 'doc, you helped me when no one else could.'  But the truth is... we can't take all the credit for it.

While medicine gives most of the credit for healing to the physician or the drug, Chiropractors see it as a team effort with four key players - the Chiropractor who clears interference from the nerve system, the innate wisdom within the patient which orchestrates the healing, the patient who practices good lifestyle habits and the time it takes for the process to unfold.

We're ecstatic when you see results from our service.  But never forget, we're not the only one rowing the boat.  There are three other oarsmen, pulling in unison... and together, we make the perfect, healing team!

If having painful arthritis wasn't bad, now a popular medical treatment for joint pain may actually make the degeneration worse.  Steroid injections have been long touted as an effective way to reduce joint inflammation and pain, but could they be doing more harm than good?

Researchers are noticing an acceleration of the patients' osteoarthritis progression, as well as other negative effects including subchondral insufficiency fracture, osteonecrosis and rapid joint destruction with bone loss after undergoing the procedure multiple times - as if the steroid injections were corroding the joints, instead of healing them.

It isn't uncommon to hear a patient say they've had multiple steroid injections over short period of time. But you have to ask yourself... is too much of a questionable thing really worth the risk? There are safer, more natural approaches to help your body heal itself – like Chiropractic.
