Daylight Subluxation Time

Daylight Subluxation Time

What does turning your clocks back and subluxations have in common?  Both leave you with less LIGHT - get it!  The primary purpose of Chiropractic is to locate and correct Subluxations.  If you break the word down you get:

SUB = less, LUX = light, and ATION = a state or condition of.

Subluxation literally means a state of less 'light' or energy caused when misaligned spinal bones restrict the flow of impulses through the nerve system.  A Chiropractic adjustment corrects this misalignment, eases pressure off nerves and extends the time Life energy flows through you – giving you more opportunity to heal.

Even though it will be getting darker earlier now, remember your innate healing 'light' shines for hours after every adjustment you receive. Fall back into a healthy routine with Chiropractic.

Scary is Being…

Scary is Being…

Are you an overly stressed person?  Is anxiety a perpetual state of your being? Unfortunately, that constant fear of what's ‘lurking in the closet'  can be creating the chronic pain you’re experiencing in your body right now.

According to Hans Selye MD, well known author of The Stress of Life, occasional anxious moments elicit a reflex stress response in our bodies.  However, prolonged and constant levels of anxiety can cause an OVER reaction. Your muscles become so hypertonic, they unintentionally lock your spine out of alignment - creating posture distortions, chronic immobility and potential nerve damage (a.k.a subluxations). That's how constant FEAR causes constant PAIN.

Nothing is scarier than living in a perpetual, subluxated state.  If you know someone who's suffering with chronic stress, anxiety and pain, tell them how Chiropractic care can potentially pull them from the darkness of dis-ease into the light of health and happiness. Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!

Fox Guarding the Hen House

Fox Guarding the Hen House

You wouldn’t contract a burglar to install your home security system. Nor would you hire a child abuser to babysit your kids. So what confidence would you have in a drug company solving the greatest pharmaceutical induced addiction crisis in our communities today?

In perhaps the most egregious example of ‘the fox guarding the hen house,’ the maker of OxyContin just procured a drug patent to treat the very opioid addiction it created in the first place. Seems Purdue Pharma has no qualms adding MORE chemicals to the mix, even after being named in multiple lawsuits for allegedly fueling the opioid epidemic in the first place.

You can’t solve a problem (let alone a national crisis) with the same philosophy that created it.  Better health through better chemistry is a flawed approach – and our country’s problem with prescription pain killers is just one tragic result of it.  More drugs to clean up an already out of control drug problem… sounds Oxy-Moronic doesn’t it?

Frogs and Flu Shots

Frogs and Flu Shots

If you remember high school biology class, you most likely remember the animal specimens you reluctantly had to dissect.  Worms, sheep brains and frogs – all preserved in an odiferous chemical solution of formaldehyde.  Formaldehyde is also known for its use in the funeral industry as an embalming fluid.

In June 2011, government scientists expressed concern for formaldehyde exposure after finding ‘worrisome quantities’ of the chemical in plywood, particle board, mortuaries and hair salons.  Several human studies went as far as reporting an association between formaldehyde exposure and lung and nasopharyngeal cancer.  It is now considered by the EPA a probable human carcinogen (Group B1) – it’s also a trace ingredient found in your flu shot.

For chiropractors, it is ‘worrisome’ that millions of flu shot recipients have no idea of what’s being injected into them every year.  Inevitably, we’re all going to get a dose of formaldehyde when we die.  The question is, do you feel comfortable having it injected artificially into your body when you’re still alive?

Diagnose and Diagnose-er

Diagnose and Diagnose-er

The word diagnosis derives from the Latin 'di' which means two, and 'agnosis' which means without knowledge.  So you can say a diagnosis is a meeting of two minds that don't have a clue about what's going on - not very comforting if it's a team of doctors trying to figure out what's wrong with you!

A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed some rather shocking numbers about physicians’ diagnostic accuracy and confidence (1).  Turns out the 118 MDs who participated in the study were right only 55% of the time on easy cases and just 6% on the tough ones.  Even more surprising, an earlier Pew Survey (2) showed that patients were 41% accurate in their own self-diagnosis from on-line resources, giving them a statistical advantage over their more 'learned' MD counterparts.

So the question is, do we really have a 'health crisis' in this country, or is it just an 'OVER diagnosis' problem - a system clogged with people lead to believe they have pressing health issues when in fact they don't?  When it comes to knowing what ails you, two heads aren't necessarily better than one.  Maybe it's smarter to just trust the REAL doctor inside you.

Subtracting for Health

Subtracting for Health

New trends in intermittent fasting and time restricted eating have taken the stage as holistic techniques that not only help with weight loss, but can restore entire physiologic systems of your body. It's reported in the medical journal Cell Stem Cell that restricting all food intake (aside from water) for three days can actually reset a damaged immune system.

Where medicine's approach to health favors addition - more prescriptions, more procedures, more therapies - studies like the one above support the concept that 'less is better' when it comes to restoring health and maintaining it for a lifetime. Many health issues resolve not because of what you ADD to your body, but because of the bad stuff you SUBTRACT from it... and Chiropractors have been leading the charge of 'subtracting for better health' since its inception.

On top of your list of 'subtractions' should be the regular detection and elimination of spinal Subluxations - the subtle nerve disturbances that throw your body out of balance and put you in a state of dis-ease. That, in combination with healthy caloric restriction methods like intermittent fasting, can reset your body and your health back to factory settings.
