We Need More Windex

If you've ever tuned into the A&E television program Hoarders, it doesn't take a genius to quickly realize it's going to take more than a bottle of Windex to clean up all the garbage, moldy food and rotting animal poop that's been accumulating in those houses for years and years and years...

But some people accumulate health problems the same way, and unrealistically believe it will take just a visit or two at the Chiropractor's to fix all their issues. From years of neglect, bad advice and denial, their chronic illnesses pile up until they can no longer recognize the healthy state their body used to be in. By the time they decide to see a Chiropractor, they've got a real 'dis-ease hoarding' problem and unfortunately one adjustment isn't enough to clean up the squalor.

The goal of Chiropractic isn't to temporarily sweep your symptoms under a rug to make things look good on the surface, but to actually roll our sleeves up and get rid of the underlying clutter once and for all. Sure it might take a little more time and a bit more elbow grease to transform your health our natural way, but in the end your human house will be clean, pristine and habitable again.

I’d Rather Be Fishing

I’d Rather Be Fishing

I’d Rather Be Fishing

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.

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

In the classic scene in The Wizard of Oz we find Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man and Scarecrow timidly walking through the woods on the lookout for the three dreadful threats conjured up in their imaginations - lions and tigers and bears, oh my...  In Chiropractic, the three big threats we warn patients about (the big three that cause Subluxations) are physical trauma, chemical trauma and auto-suggestion (thought) trauma.

According to the founder of Chiropractic, DD Palmer, approximately 20% of nervous system interference can be attributed to physical injuries or poisons from outside the body... like a slip, fall or overdose.  The remaining 80% can be traced back to persistent negative emotions or self-talk that literally build tension in your muscles, pull vertebrae out of alignment and freeze your nerve system in its tracks - rendering you stiff like a Tin Man, foggy brained like a Scarecrow and overly sensitive like a Cowardly Lion.

A Chiropractor can locate your Subluxations, restore normal spinal alignment and reduce nerve interference when necessary. But it's your responsibility to, 1. Be cognizant when any of the big three "T's" attacks you and 2. Get adjusted ASAP so worse problems don’t manifest. Doing so will keep you and your loved ones on the yellow brick road of health.

Process of Illumination

Process of Illumination

Process of Illumination

To eliminate darkness, you must add LIGHT. Darkness is nothing more than the void left behind in the absence of energy... in this case, “LIGHT.” Likewise, to eliminate coldness you must add the appropriate energy “HEAT” to fill the void left behind.

So if darkness is the absence of light, and coldness is the absence of heat, what can be said of disease?  If there's a Life Force in the body that provides health and order, could limiting the presence of that energy in the cells, tissues and organs of your body also leave behind a void?  It in fact does, and Chiropractors call this void Dis-ease.

Chiropractors recognize that to eliminate dis-ease, you must add “HEALTH.” When you remove interference from the nerve system and allow vitalizing Life energy to illuminate every nook and cranny of the body, the void of dis-ease is overcome. 100% innate expression over time equals health.  This is the formula on which our profession was founded and the sick get well.

More Than a Knot

More Than a Knot

More Than a Knot

Are those knots in your muscles back again? You just had a good massage, and you REALLY felt great after. But you wish that feeling would last for more than just a day or two.  Maybe there's something you can do to make your sessions have a longer, lasting effect.

Muscles that support your back and neck all day long, contract in unison with spinal joints to create stability and normal motion. But if those joints are Subluxated (stuck and mis-aligned) your muscles end up pulling against unexpected forces... like trying to pull open a door you didn’t know was locked. Muscles experience the same jolt when trying to move a joint that won’t budge - creating recurring trigger points, tightness and the need for frequent massages.

To fix the problem, you must unlock the joints. Chiropractic adjustments restore normal motion and alignment to spinal segments so when freshly massaged muscles contract, they won't re-knot themselves. That's in addition to the resurgence of energy you get when your spine is well adjusted. Massage and Chiropractic certainly go hand in hand.

Forest for the Trees

Forest for the Trees

Forest for the Trees

"Seeing the forest for the trees" is an expression of PERSPECTIVE. It's the ability to step back and see the whole picture of a given situation, instead of clinging to a narrow, limited, myopic one. Focusing on the BIG IDEA is necessary to achieving any worthy goal.

We commonly hear newer patients say... my migraines, my sciatica, my fibromyalgia - labeling themselves by their doctor's diagnosis instead seeing themselves as the healthy people they want to be. Unfortunately when it comes to healing, holding on to your symptoms is as beneficial as hugging a tree and never letting go. You can't see the forest of wellness if you insist on clinging to the trunk of disease.

You don't get healthy by focusing on sickness. You get healthy by letting go, stepping back and acknowledging who you REALLY are... an innately gifted human being, capable of healing from above down, inside out. It's our job as your Chiropractor to never let you forget it.
